Jiraiya (自来也) is the name of a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. The character’s name means self-explanatory, and it’s taken from the Japanese folktale about Jiraiya and his magic frog summoning, Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari.
What is Naruto called Jiraiya?
Naruto calls Jiraiya, Ero-sennin (えろせんにん). This means that Naruto calls him Pervy Sage. We see Naruto call Jiraiya Ero-sennin in Chapter 2 when he first meets him. In Japanese, pervy or ero is used as a prefix for a person who has a very high sexual interest. In American English, words like pervert and pedophile would be appropriate equivalents for ero. The suffix –in usually indicates a rank in Japanese. For example, Hokage (火影) means Fire Shadow and Sannin (三忍) refers to three ninjas. So together, we get Pervy Sage which can also be translated as Perverted Old Man.
Jiraiya’s real name: Jiraiya full name is Namikaze Minato (波風ミナト), but he goes by his pen name which was given to him by his teacher, Hiruzen Sarutobi. His pen name is Jiraiya (自来也), which comes from his given name Minato with an additional character tacked on at the end. So his full pen name is actually Namikaze Minato Jiraiya. This explains why both names are equally important; it was because they were essentially one and the same.
The first kanji in Jiraiya (自) means self or oneself. The second kanji in Jiraiya (来) means to come or to arrive. Together, these two kanji mean that anyone who has a strong sense of self will eventually be able to succeed no matter what happens. In other words, those who have a strong sense of self can overcome any obstacles that stand in their way.
Jiraiya died? When I first read Naruto manga chapter 515 I thought Naruto lost his sensei forever. But later in Chapter 602, we see that it was only a genjutsu and that Jiraiya is still alive. This is how he escaped from A’s genjutsu: If you’re an enemy, then I’ll kill you! If you’re an ally, then I’ll save you! This is a reference to when he saved Tsunade from her brother Nawaki’s attack. He said those words to motivate Tsunade and she succeeded in saving her brother. In other words, if you’re an enemy of mine, then I’ll kill you. If you’re my ally or someone who needs help, then I’ll save you (from death).
These are also some famous lines from Jiraiya book The Tale of Ginkaku and Kinkaku (銀角と犬角). It’s about two brothers who were born with silver hair and golden hair respectively. They were always fighting each other until they both died at age 15 because they didn’t know how to stop fighting. The moral of the story is that if two people keep fighting against each other for too long without resolving their conflict, they will die before achieving anything meaningful with their lives.
What does Jiraiya mean in Japanese?
Not to be confused with a more formal use, Jotaro Kujo (自来也) is a very informal name that’s often used by young boys. Literally translated, it means one who comes (or gives) himself. In Naruto, it’s also a pun on Jiraya being an author. (See below.) This same term is also used for personal names; however, its most common usage is reserved for fictional characters in Japanese manga and anime.
A fictional character named 自来也 appears in multiple stories such as One Piece, Dragon Ball and Rurouni Kenshin just to name a few. As you can see, there are many different ways to read and write Jiraiya in Japanese. The kanji 自来也 has no set reading or pronunciation rules which makes it possible for each writer/artist to decide how they want their version of Jiraiya to sound.
So, although all three versions may look exactly alike they actually have completely different pronunciations. For example (しらいや、じらいや、じらいや)。 So if you ever plan on visiting Japan make sure to take note of these subtle differences so your new friends don’t think you’re calling them another person’s name!
