Jiraiya revisited

Found some links to what seems to be Jiraiya's personal site and blog courtesy of a friend on Twitter @tokyo23japan. Great, but everything is in Japanese, and Google Translate isn't exactly accurate.

I have sent the artist an email asking whether he doesn't want to consider maybe starting a Facebook group, or site, for his English speaking fans and will keep you updated.


  1. Wahahahahaha! no really? for reals? ick! he is about one feathering layer in photoshop away from a twinsavers two ply ad!

    :) made my day though! high five

  2. oh I don't know, I kinda like it, but then I'm a sucker for a guy with muscles ;) But I want to find out from this guy how he does it, cause it looks drawn.

  3. I am going to go right ahead and assume its a layer effect or mask in Photoshop, possibly it starts out as a photo and then is reworked?

    A graphic designer / Photoshop guru should be able to tell!

    OK i wont judge any weird fetishes! I am oddly attracted to Billy Ray Cyrus - the man still makes a mullet look good!

  4. I should probably go ahead and just ask my sister. then again, she'll give me one of her funny looks... hehehe.

    luckily I don't think anyone is in a position to judge in this day and age, I think our tastes are quite normal when you compare it to some of the more 'sophisticated' people out there.

    Billy Ray Cyrus? Really?? ;)
