He is an old guy that gives really fair and informative anime reviews. I can forgive you for not knowing about him, since his last update was 4 years ago newfag

One can't truly appreciate anime without isolating for years to become an anime guru.

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

He was watching LoGH ;_;7

He's an accumulation of experience. It's safe to say that everything that he's experienced has wized him beyond what we can currently imagine. Hopefully, one day we can accumulate as much experience in life as he has/had.

Not that guy, but it's obviously true, and even then you're still a faggot for bringing it up where it isn't relevant.

Can't you go talk about your inferiority complex somewhere else?
