About Kevin Chu
Born and raised in Canada, Kevin Chu lived internationally throughout his childhood, spending the majority of his schooling in Hong Kong before returning to Canada, first to study at the University of British Columbia, and then to find work. He has written for the newspaper publications The Standard and Inkwell Productions before joining Screen Rant. Kevin has a love of videogames, anime, and everything related to them.
Kevin has been writing professionally since 2015, doing editing and article writing for newspapers and children's publications like The Standard and Inkwell Productions, and also has written as a hobby. As one who's watched anime since childhood, he has great familiarity with the industry that lets him write about it without any reservations.
Currently, Kevin is a contributing writer to Screen Rant's Anime section. You might see him give attention to mecha series like Mobile Suit Gundam, give shout-outs to obscure shows, or write about recent Shonen series like Kagurabachi or Naruto. He also follows the anime airing each season and general anime news for articles and analytical pieces.
Kevin's favorite anime is Samurai Champloo, but he also enjoys both experimental anime and ones with more unusual art styles like Mononoke or Welcome to Dr. Irabu's Office, as well as slice-of-life series like Laidback Camp or Super Cub. That is not to say he enjoys a good action-packed series like Trigun or Chainsaw Man.
