 No.2160

Jonathan comes from rich family
Dio comes from poor family
Is jojo part 1 capitalist propaganda

 No.2161

>>2160
No. The background is simply capitalist, yet it bares little on the plot.

 No.2165

Isn't Jonathan more like an aristocrat than a capitalist?

2bh it's not completely clear.
The Joestar mansion looks like a noble sort of aristocratic estate,
but George could have just been a rich English merchant.
I believe the implication is that they're nobility though, since Jonathan is just such a 'noble and too pure' sort of idealistic character.

>>2160
But for OP, what >>2161 is best in my eye; Jojo is too goddamned fucking stupid for there to be any overarching themes of class,
even in a subliminal way.
I honestly doubt Araki could even comprehend the notion of economic class.
Dio is quite literally comically evil just for the sake of being so, and is not meant to be reflective of any particular type of human in general: Dio or DIO, he in particular is just an evil fucking bastard simply because he is so don't bother questioning it.
And so is his dad.

SPEEDWAGON on the other hand is also a 'underclass dreg' sort of character, but he is the complete inverse of Dio.
He has honor and respect, he doesn't screw over everyone possible to get the upper hand.
He is a good person who also happens to be a leader of a mugging crew because he 'has to be' or whatever to provide for his family that was mentioned in one line.
So Araki is transcendently apolitical, but that doesn't mean he's actually injecting reactionary messaging I don't think; I'm fairly certain that he really just is that way.

 No.2167

>>2160
The most evil fuck imaginable such as Dio only becomes a danger if he gets into power. The Joestar family's bourgeois naivete is very much responsible for letting Dio get worse and worse. I'd like a fanfic exploring what would happen if the Joestars just peaced out on the Brandos. Would Dio have become more like an evil version of Speedwagon? Would someone else get corrupted by the mask eventually?

There's little to no class commentary in JoJo. Whenever something like Nazis show up it's always stupid, comical and over the top. I wouldn't bother going looking for a profound subtext

 No.2168

Why are you retards making a new thread when there is already a Jojo thread?

 No.2169

>>2166
Them being aristocrats would tie in nicely with the Joestar blood theme.

 No.2735

>>2160
Nice analysis bro, ever considered setting up a youtube channel?
