Hey Kentonians! (sorry, I need to come up with a better name)

I really appreciate you checking out our Patreon page. If you want to contribute to the KB channel, this is the place to do it.

Whether you decide to be a patron or not, I want to thank you (first and foremost) for being a subscriber to the channel.

Who am I?

I'm Kento, and I run the 'Kento Bento' YouTube channel. I make in-depth videos on everything and anything 'Asiany' - including stereotypes, culture, history & geography. By pledging, you'll be directly supporting the creation of all future videos.

What will the money be used for?

The money will always be put back into growing this channel. What Patreon directly helps with though, is affording me to work less hours in my other job, to spend more time creating KB videos.

What other jobs do you have?

I work as a chef, specializing in Italian cuisine (and yes, I can cook 'Asiany' foods too!). *Edit: Nowadays, I spend less days in the kitchen, as I transition to YouTube full-time.

How long do you take to make each video?

Weeks, unfortunately. I do just about every step - research, script, narration, audio and video editing.

Do you have any formal qualifications? (If so, does it relate to YouTube?)

I have a Culinary Degree which I guess isn't so surprising given my other job. I also have a Post-Graduate Degree in Applied Mathematics which is a qualification I never use! Neither of my degrees really connect to me doing videos, but it's always good to have something to fall back on if YouTube ever decides to de-monetize one too many of my videos.

Will you increase the number of videos you do in the future?

That's the plan! Hopefully with Patreon support, this will become a reality.

Who does your illustrations/artwork?

That would be myself and the assistant illustrator Charlie who not only helps with the awesome artwork for the channel, but does it for peanuts. First and foremost, the money from Patreon will go towards paying him - I'm pretty sure we all want more of Charlie's artwork in KB videos!

Does Nina still help with the channel?

For those unaware, Nina is my wife. Yes, she tries to help when she can, usually to do with artwork and design, but she has a lot going on right now with other projects. Regardless, she will always be a part of the KB channel in some way. Without her, I wouldn't be sane enough to run a YouTube channel! (It's super stressful).

Do you work on any other YouTube channels?

Not anymore. I used to make videos for the KenHub YouTube channel, which is about human anatomy. Here are three such videos I made for them (one of which even has more views than any video on my actual channel!):
- Why can't your body handle a punch to the liver?

- What would happen if your spine had no curves?

- Your heart is not where you think it is
