"Yo! What's up my beautiful weebs."
Introductory phrase.

Connor Colquhoun, AKA CDawgVA is an Welsh internet personality and professional voice actor best known for his anime related content on Youtube.

Having started his channel on 2014, he would begin to gain popularity thanks to his voice impression videos, where he used an impression of Sebastian Michael from Black Butler, which had become notable in how similar it is to the character's actual voice actor, J. Michael Tatum.

Since then however, while most of his content is generally anime and manga related, he has since branched out of anime and manga a bit and has covered a wide variety of topics on his channel, particularly those related to Japanese pop culture and voice acting, especially since he moved to Japan in 2019, which he stated has given him the opportunity to cover things that he couldn't otherwise in his home country, such as host clubs, themed cafes, etc.


In 2020, he, alongside The Anime Man and Gigguk had started a podcast called Trash Taste, where they cover a wide variety of topics related to Japan and anime/manga in general.

Outside of his voice acting and Youtube career, he also directed the English audiobook dub for the yaoi manga, You Are My Princess under Bookwalker (a subsidiary of Kadokawa Corporation).

Besides his main YouTube channel, he also has a Twitch page where he does live-streams, as well as accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.


CDawgVA's videos contain the following tropes

  • Accent On The Wrong Syllable: Daidus and Emirichu make fun of the way he says Mario due to his British accent. Ironmouse also did it in a later stream.
  • Badass Baritone: His voice over career was built off this.
  • Catchphrase: Several:
    • "Sheeesh!"
    • "Bruh."
    • "Let's Goooooo!"
  • Cosplay: A running series of his has him wearing cheap cosplay, often from China.
  • Deal with the Devil: He makes one with Ironmouse (who is supposed to be Satan), in order to play an embarrassing clip of her being ecstatic when he joined her Twitch channel. The deal: he has to cosplay as her. Though it turns out...
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: When he eventually does cosplay as Ironmouse (during her "4th Year Anniversary" stream), it's so bad that it instantly makes Mousey regret her deal with him.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: He has shown attraction to numerous fictional male characters across his videos, the most notable being the male love interests from Mr Love Queens Choice.
  • Ham-to-Ham Combat: His arguments and streams with Ironmouse can sometimes develop this, with both her and him trying to out yell each other in an over the top way.
  • Hidden Depths:
  • The Infiltration: Several of his videos have him going undercover on both his Discord and numerous sites.
  • Large Ham: Connor can get very invested into whatever he's doing which often puts him squarely into this trope. Some of the voice-overs in his videos also tend to be quite dramatic (though that's expected for a voice actor).
  • Mistaken for Gay: While trying to strike up conversation with people on Omegle, he was merely wearing an anime style spandex unitard. This would occasionally lead the other person (not knowing who he was) to assume that Connor was gay.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He has this reaction when he makes Ironmouse of VShojo admit that she is on her oxygen machine during one of their streams. He immediately stops insulting her and starts apologizing.
  • Running Gag: His unhealthy relationship with Kermit is a frequent running gag throughout his videos.
  • Self-Deprecation: In post production of his videos, Connor will sometimes add voice-over commentary that includes a lot of insults aimed at himself.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: The page image certainly shows how nice he looks in a suit.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has this relationship with Ironmouse of VShojo.
  • Stylistic Suck: Offers a variation of this with his cosplay series, where he dresses up (or tries to dress up) in low-budget cosplay for comedic purposes. These cosplay usually have low quality material, don't fit, look like poor imitations of the source material, or all of the above.
  • Virtual YouTuber: Has his own Vtuber avatar that he uses from time to time.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Ironmouse of VShojo. She treats him like a Sitcom Arch-Nemesis and Connor is more than happy to play along and tease her often in response, but it's clear that the two have mutual respect for each other.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Downplayed. Ironmouse was much more cordial and friendly towards him during their early collabs, before they developed their Vitriolic Best Buds dynamic. According to him, they "speedrunned their friendship all the way to resentment".
  • Yaoi Fangirl: Gender inverted example. While he's not super into it (at least, that's what he likes to say), he is shown to be pretty fond of Yaoi and has done numerous videos of him reading numerous yaoi manga and several videos related to it.
