Why has nobody replaced Grumpy Jii San in doing anime reviews while hiking mountains?
>>
We all know we're not worthy.
>>
It's a little thing called respect, son.
>>
>you will never watch Sword of the Stranger with grumpy Jii-san
>>
>it's been 50 years since jii san ded

Rip in pieces
>>

You honestly think any of us are going to leave the house? To go hiking no less?
>>
I-I live near various mountains and could easily hike them and it would be fun, but I don't know if I can live up to Jii-San's quality. I would certainly put the effort in though.
>>
>>101815288
I-I go backpacking..

>>101814516
This.

>Grumpy Jii will never review Disappearance, Madoka, or Wolf Kids
>>
I enjoyed is LoGH reviews

So any uh... confirmation?

Have we ever figured out who he actually is?

>>101815805
>three 9
>better than LoGh
How dare he.
Though I'd suppose most of /a/ isn't familiar with the old rivalry between these two fandoms
>>
I did apply for the position, but even though I'm probably as old as GJ-san (if not older), I don't have a cool hat like he does and I don't live near a desert. Unless you count Swindon as a place void of intelligent life, of course.
>>
>>101815953
He's out hiking.
>>
>>101816784
Do you have any videos? I'd love to see what an old Englishman reviewing chinese cartoons would be like
>>
>>101814036
No one knows as much about anime as him.
>>
>>101816784
An old Britbong reviewing animu sounds interesting.
>>
I live in New Mexico and am fairly old and decrepit myself. But my taste is too shit, I'd just ramble about how Slayers is a masterpiece for fifteen hours.

Do it, Anon. We need a replacement.
>>
Just let this fucking die already. Show some respect to Jii-san by not sending out some bullshit imitator.

If you want to review anime, do it your own way. It's going to be shit no matter what so why disgrace Jii san in the process?
>>
>>101816784
FUND IT

>not immortalising a legend on the internet

We are paying the ultimate respect.

I go hiking and backpacking
but I'm not near his powerlevel and I'm not as cool as him

>>101816784
Would watch.

>>101817458
Imitation is the ultimate form of admiration. I'm sure he will appreciate it from heaven.
>>
>>101817458
Guess we can't ever have Star Wars or Indiana Jones. It would be a disgrace to carry on the legacy of Saturday afternoon serials.
>>
>>101819711
You mean Gensokyo, right?
>>
Why don't anons just write reviews and pay Tyrone to cover them

>Usurping the Mantle of Grumpy Jii San

You've got a lot of fucking nerve suggesting that.
>>
>>101816784
Fund it

I want to see this, but instead of climbing with a cool hat and backpack, you can do it with a flat cap and tweed jacket.

Dear forum users,
My name is Jonathan Wayne and I have sad news to convey to all of you.
My beloved grandfather, Bruce Wayne, also known on the internet as "Grumpy jiisan" has recently passed away. As you might know my grandfather has stopped updating his youtube profile and website due to the severe arthritis plaguing his hands. In the past year his condition had deteriorated needing constant hospital care. Still, even while being hospitalized he retained his passion towards anime and tirelessly followed the newest releases on his laptop. He always spoke enthusiastically about his plans of making new reviews after his eventual recovery. Unfortunately, this never came to be.

Grumpy Jiisan had passed away quietly, surrounded by his loving family on the morning of january 4th, due to organ failure. My grandfather was 89 years old.

I am writing this message here because my grandfather frequently visited this forum and always spoke spirited about the loving community he had found here, despite only being able to make posts at a great difficulty. I believe he would have wished for it to inform you about his fate so we can all come in terms with the unavoidable reality.

My grandfather was a man of admiration who was able to connect with the younger generation through his hobby and passion for anime. He understood young people well and always spoke about understanding. He viewed the fragmentation over different tastes and "waifus" within the community disturbing, since in the end (using his words) we were all united through our love for anime. I hope his wise words can serve as an advice for many and would make the community a more welcoming place for everyone.
But now, the time is for mourning. Please remember my grandfather in your hearts as a sometimes grumpy, but energetic old anime fan, who loved everyone who shared his love for japanimation.

-Jonathan Wayne

I'd watch you anon. And I'm not usually one to support this sort of shameless attention whoring.

Don't even joke about that.
>>
>>101822258
Cthulu.
Cronus.
Jesus depending on the sects understanding of trinitarianism.
>>
>>101822350
Cronus didn't die, he got imprisoned in Tartarus. That's different than dying and being sent to Tartarus. Dionysius, however, did die.
>>
>>101816784
DO IT
DO IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT

>Cthulhu

What is dead may never die.
>>
>>101816784
>Swindon
you got plenty of hill and farms to do reviews in, heck just go to bath spa or something like that
>>
What happened to him? It's been years since his last recommendation?

>implying Batman would die without a replacement
>>
>>101825283
So someone needs step up to be his Dick.

>>101816784
Do it.

I just need to know he is ok.
>>
>>101826212
He's not
