Web Video: Gigguk
"Welcome to the Anime Zone. I've hoped you've enjoyed the constructive, fast-paced, sarcastic videos that are my anime reviews, and for the last fucking time, go watch Baccano! now."
- 1000 Subscriber Special

Garnt Maneetapho, a.k.a. Gigguk, is a British-Thai, fast-talking, self-made anime reviewer who originated on YouTube and is the sole founder of The Anime Zone, co-founder of The PodTaku Podcast, and director of EvAbridged.

Born in Brighton, England to Thai immigrants, he began his reviewing career in 2007 as a way to procrastinate from math homework. It all started with a review of Bleach under his Thai nickname, Gigguk. Since then, he has changed his style from leisurely enjoyment to a more analytical and comedic approach. His final grade is based on a 0 to 10 rating system, designating each title with a single integer. He is open to reviewing any title from any genre, despite his aversion to high school and moe anime.

2012 marked the beginning of his tenure as a permanent panelist on The PodTaku Podcast. He was joined by fellow reviewers Arkada, Holden, and Jeanne. He followed it up two months later with the release of EvAbridged, a highly satirical parody of Rebuild of Evangelion, in which he voices the role of Fuyutsuki. On September 25, 2013, he and the rest of PodTaku launched J-Taku, a separate podcast of singular topics devoted to anime, which was developed with the help of several other reviewers note .

He can be found on Formspring, Twitter, Tumblr, and MyAnimeList
