It's hard for me to get invested in channels that cover shonen shows, especially currently airing shonen shows, that i'm not watching. But for what it's worth, good luck with the channel.

I will be honest and say that I didn't actually fully watch through any of your videos mainly because the specific content you're covering doesn't appeal to me. I'm just not a big shounen guy. I skipped around a bit to see what they were about.

On the video front though there are a few things you may want to look at:
- Video Length
If an episode of a show is 20ish minutes, I don't personally think an episode review/recap should run more than maybe a quarter of that unless there's really some meaty content to dive into or a back and forth between multiple perspectives. If you're just recapping an episode for 15 minutes by yourself then would it not be better for the viewer to just watch the episode themselves?

- Production Quality
It does seem like you know your stuff, but you need to make the videos more interesting somehow. I know that running actual footage of a show can get you in copy claim trouble, but just showing a still image is, frankly, boring. I know not everyone is into showing themselves on camera but it's a big part of why the biggest anime Youtubers are big. It allows the audience to connect with them more and it means even if they're just talking they can get away with barely showing any footage of what they are talking about. Your dialogue delivery was decent and will improve in time, especially if you get on camera. If you're not into being on camera at all, maybe look into something like facerig? Either way, content aside, you need to make your videos more interesting to watch.

- Finding an audience
As I said I'm not a shounen guy, but I would imagine that there may already be a ton of people out there doing Dragon Ball and Naruto content. That doesn't mean you can't get noticed at all doing that sort of content, you might get lucky, but you're starting out as a really small fish in an ocean sized pond. You might need to broaden your horizons a bit to try to catch a wave on anime that is less saturated. You seem to like the Tales games, so maybe looking into the Tales anime series that have been released or other fantasy style anime might be good?
