About Jiraiyan

My name is Jerrell Robertson and I go by the name of Jiraiyan. That name is created from the name of the legendary sannin from Naruto, Jiraiya. I started this blog way back in 2013. After taking a business writing class in college I was inspired by a class project to begin this blog. I have been an anime fan since I was 9. Starting with classic anime like Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z and Yugioh, I became hooked on anime.

My goal with this blog is to establish an anime community with my opinions, essays, and reviews. Hopefully we can share or thoughts and opinion in a fun and respectful manner.

In terms what content I would produce, I have mostly been focusing on reviewing anime and manga. I review what I like. However, many people can tell you what happened in a given episode. In order to make my blog more unique I need to do a better job of given my opinion. To this end I also will be writing more long form essay on various topics involving anime and manga. My first essay was Why are shonen anime characters so stupid?

In celebration of my 900th post (I have since deleted hundreds of posts) I created a list of my My Top Ten Anime of All Time check it out. So far my top ten posts are:

  1. One Piece: Did Big Mom eat everyone? – 28,936 Views
