Miss Hannah Minx, also known as Mistress Hannah Jinx, is a former YouTuber known for her Kawaii anime aesthetic. She mainly uploaded videos covering Japanese language and culture. However, amidst her success, Hannah disappeared off the face of the internet, leaving fans confused about what happened to her.
Who is Hannah Minx?
Hannah was born on October 31, 1988, in Lexington, Kentucky, under the name Hannah Wagner. Not much is known about her personal life as she is a private person.
Wagner had the idea of making Japanese language tutorials and accomplished this goal after studying abroad at Sophia University in Japan. In July 2008, she set up her YouTube channel and called it “MissHannahMinx”.
How Did She Get Famous?
In March 2009, she uploaded her first video titled, “Japanese Lesson – Introductions” and it was an instant hit, so Hannah continued to post content regularly. Her channel’s fame surged with her top video doing over 10 million views. Her videos were mostly watched by men who were attracted by her big round eyes.
Hannah was known for teaching Japanese Words of the Week (JWOWs) and Japanese Phrases of the Week (JPOWs). From 2009 to 2014 she made videos every week and her followers couldn’t get enough. Her content was witty, informative, and entertaining. This helped her gain nearly 600,000 subscribers!
How Did She Disappear?
Hannah made a number of films in addition to working on YouTube. She starred in The Devil’s Carnival in 2012 and also collaborated on the film Slay Belles. After the project finished, Hannah seemed to vanish from the internet.
The aspiring actress released her last YouTube video on August 9, 2013 and hasn’t been seen or heard from since then. Her social media accounts have been silent and her old videos were removed.
Even to this day, Hannah never explained why she retired from YouTube. Fans and friends were concerned. The director of one of her films even hired a private investigator to find out what happened.
What Is Hannah Doing Now?
There has been a lot of discussion about Hannah’s decision to leave and the potential reasons behind it. There are a lot of rumors floating online, but there is one Reddit user who makes a believable case.
This person is said to be a long-time follower of Hannah’s work. Someone who had a sneak peek of Hannah’s videos earlier in her career as she accepted friend requests from subscribers, giving them a glimpse into her personal life.
According to the Reddit user, Hannah is now married to Steve Fox Osterhagen and has children. As a mother her life would have changed drastically and wouldn’t have had the time for YouTube. Another reason why the channel is empty may be because of management issues. Hannah is now 34 years old and it’s reasonable to assume she won’t be returning to YouTube anytime soon.
