Jojo

 

IT'S LIKE A BURRRRRNING SUNSET

 

「C H O C O L A T E D I S C O」, that's all I'm gonna say.

>>57
To add to that,
Steel Ball Run is Based and Anti-America pilled.

 

Finally tried to read through this series a while back, had to stop when it got to the stands because it was just insufferably stupid. No, not like fun ironic stupid as its fans boast, but like its creator is a fucking moron trying to seem intelligent.

 

>>59
A lot of my frens who are fans are genuine dumbasses and kinda fashy, I think it's all about the rule of cool aesthetic for a lot of them.
That being I think JoJo's pretty fun; the series itself isn't ironically stupid, it is actually just stupid, but I still feel that genuine stupidity can be enjoyed ironically.
I'm curious as to what in particular you found moronic about Araki though; is it his constant forgetfulness of plot points?
Or the weird historical factoids meant to show how knowledgeable he is or whatever?

In any case, any JoJo fan who tries to say it's 'ackshually super smart' is a goddamn idiot.

 

>>60
>>59
Stands are better in part 3 and 4 where their just the MC's and pals ghost type pokemon they spawn from their own fighting spirit or some other Shounen / Seinen shit.
When you get to part 5 and 6 and its retconned that stands are actually some like alien parasitic organism that like fucks up DNA or something and creates the Next evolution of humanity or whatever.

 

>>61
On one hand I want to like the 'complexity' of later stands,
on the other, a lot of them are just retarded masquerading as complex.
I think the stands in Steel Ball Run are pretty good generally though.
I don't understand why the anime part 5 is now like the highest rated part though.
It's so boring, it started the stand retcon, the stands are meh, the characters are mediocre, the plot has no meaningful impact, it wasted Jean-Pierre; maybe I'm just an asshole though.

What you guy's part 8 final boss expectations?

>What we seem to know at this point

&ltTohru is either the final boss or the Vanilla Ice to the Final Boss's Dio so to speak.
&ltEndless Calamity / The Wonder of you injures and tries to kill people attempting to pursue it. It is somehow able to increase the kinetic damage people suffer by accelerating the speed or the impact force of objects (Rai bumping into a table and almost ripping his legs off / 8suke getting shot by rain drops) Stand user is most likely Tohru
&ltThe effects of endless calamity / TWOY on its victim are directly relative to the 'Karma' of them. so "good" guys like Rai and Josuke get mild yet survivable wounds while Jobin who just got done trying to kill a teenage girl and threatening his family after giving his dad heat stroke gets turned into a sprinkler.
&ltJoshu has the plant hold and looks like hes about to waste one of them to heal Yasuho
&ltEndless Calamity / TWOY can completely break the rules about Normoids not being able to see stands and Tohru has seemingly been using it as an alter ego for some time.
&ltFor no explicable reason Endless calamity / TWOY can appear to multiple people at once entire cities away
&ltTsurugi continuing to become pyramidhead in the bedroom

 

>>59
when most of anime is just retarded glowy power levels, just the fact that the stand fights are each unique and have their own mechanics makes Jojo stand out. Also some of the fights are pretty smart imo

 

Reminder that Joseph Joestar is introduced by beating up cops to defend a black kid from racial harassment.

>>66
Aragi forgod :DDD

 

>>63
2bh I'm kind of bored at this point and don't really know how it's gonna resolve;
Tohru seems to make sense though as the finale or penultimate.
But what about the mom? Is she gonna be the real finale villain? I feel like it's been forever since we seent her, but she might make sense too?

 

I just finally watched all of the anime and I was wondering, is the manga worth it checking out?
Also: 2 > 4 > 3 > 5 > 1
If part 5 had a better ending fight plus less spooks maybe it tied with part 3

 

>>69
I watched all the anime and never read part 6 cause I figured it'll be animated soon anyway.
I did jump ahead to part 7 since it's entirely new shit anyway finished it and caught up on 8.
I do highly recommend reading 7 and 8, they are well worth it.

 

I hate JoJo

>Araki for whatever reason decides to make this chapter the closest he'd ever come to straight fanservice Until Part 8 up when he could have just had a generic stand battle.
>The Fanbases favourite Fanon / Fanfictions about Part 7 all seem to revolve around Diego fucking HP with his Dino-Dick and other shit
>There's no panel in part 7 where someone in universe literally screams "OH MY GOD GYRO THE PRESIDENT JUST KILLED HOT PANTS!!!"
>Part 8 still has numerous characters / references to characters that appear for one page and are never mentioned again (Ocean Baby / Flashback man etc etc)
Either the final boss of part 8 or the next JoJo (If Araki makes another part) will be Giorno Brando whose Diego's great-great-great illegitimate grandson

 

Why is this anime still so popular? The memes are all its good for TBH.

 

>>55
I honestly find Foo Fighters attractive.

 

Stands are one of the most overpowered street-level fighting abilities in any media

part 6 announced

 

>>6757
If that's true then I might actually get into JoJo again

 

>>6758
It actually is true. Will be interesting since people love to hate on Part 6

 

Is Part 8 still ongoing? When will that Autist Araki finnish the story?

 

>>5635
That post didn't age for long.
>>6758
Yes it was announced back in Saturday.ak-47AK-47

 

>>6781
>That post didn't age for long.
Yeah, it was obvious as fuck that it would happen some time after 5.

 


 

>>9542
My wife Jolyne looks and sounds beautiful
Hermes has a nice voice too
Oh shit, I'm actually getting hype for this anime, I thought JoJo would never be a part of my life again. I'm definitely gonna watch it.

 

So what's David Pro gonna do when they catch up to the manga? Are they just going to stop or wait for a new part? Or are they going to stop after part 6?

 

>>9545
If they happens, it'll probably be in 8 or so years.

 

>>9546
*If that happens
Anyway, I don't think you should worry about it. They also have spin-offs to adapt. And SBR is longer than the previous JoJo parts.

 

Part 9 announced?? Not sure but it’s trending

 

>>9551
Apparently they're talking about this
https://twitter.com/MangaMoguraRE/status/1427546859514515457
>"JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Part 9" tentatively titled "JOJO LANDS" by Hirohiko Araki will start after a short break.

 

Jojo is only good for memes and clips, prove me wrong.

 

>>9780
The memes and clips only catch on because the show is fun.

 

>>9783
I feel it catches on more because it's just so shocking and absurdist. On paper the story is alright, but the actual result is nonsensical.

 

>>9784
That's why it's fun.

 

>>9785
Kek, good point

 

>>9780
Wrong, it's also good for obsessing over it and over-analyzing it for years and years with other weirdos on the internet.
And for playing a decades-old fighting game.

 

>>9840
Also True.

 

Embedding error.
I think the OVA art style and animation, while less memeable and bombastic than the usual anime style, is better. The style has texture and shadows and the animation is smoother than the janky animated background bullshit of the actual series.

 

>>10455
On average, the animation in those OVAs is obviously superior by far. It sucks that Twitter JoJofags (or whatever community it was) memed "JoJo fans must shit on the OVAs for no reason" so hard.
I prefer the first (Egypt part) OVAs though, I don't like the style of the later ones very much, though if I didn't know they're an adaptation and if I didn't know about JoJo, I would probably think it's a really cool anime.

 

crossover yaoi fanfics incoming

>Jonathan comes from rich family
>Dio comes from poor family
<Is jojo part 1 capitalist/aristocrat propaganda?
The background is simply capitalist, yet it bares little on the plot. 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. 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. 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.

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.

That said: 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?

 

>big burly men posing while their humanoid spirit pokemon do all the fighting and all the specialized combat techniques like hamon get forgotten in favor of muscly twinks
Jojo hasn't been good for some time.

>>10865
They dont (willingly) summon stands to fight for them, its mostly just their subconscious will that brings them into existence
And the spin is a direct callback to hamon.
I love JoJo only for part 1, 2, and 7. All the other parts are alright and have their moments, but were never as consistent.

 

>>10866
Looks like a Rasengan to me TBH.

I love jojo references in actual manga, I don't even like most of Jojo, but the memes are good.

 

Statue Men still slap

 

Bumping using best theme

 

>>10457
The final batch of Part 6 has been released, and now I have finally seen the part, I can say that it is a certified banger. (This is me by the way >>69
)

Here are my part ratings (I haven't only read the first 10 chapters of part 8)
7 > 4 =>(?) 6 + ending > 2 > 5 => 3 > 6 - ending > 1
Genuinely I am not the same after watching this part. Made in heaven and Jail house Lock are now both my favorite two stands of all time, (I think a anime like and good as death note can be made based off of Jail House lock, genuinely fascinating to think about It's also a good analogy for cardiac if you're a programmer).

While I think the part didn't have the strongest: protagonist, JoBros (Jo sisters are great though), villain (until the end where I see his plan, still think the name is very poorly chosen), or some of the stands (did not like that fung shway guy) – man that ending is fucking amazing, (even though the ending wasn't built up properly since it was a re-write)

What do you guys think?

>>10866
>I love JoJo only for part 1, 2, and 7. All the other parts are alright and have their moments, but were never as consistent.
I agree on part 2 and 7 be consistent, but why 1? I found the part was at it's best when Jonathon and Dios dynamic was being presented, which made the part have a gap in quality after episode 4 and the finale.

>>10455
>>10457
Is it worth to watch it? Other than the shadows and textures, it seems to be a really bad adaption in every possible way you can think of, (other than being the only one to include the beginning scene from part 1)

>>9780
There's many aspects that are great, one being that the series in insanely experimental that is always changing things up.
Ex: Part 2 is an indiana jones film with the protagonist having a very forward personality that uses sunshine karate to kill the strongest male strippers to ever walked the planet, part 3 uses a whole new power system and stars a introverted delinquent that goes on a summer vacation with others to kill someone, then part 4 doubles the complexity of the stands and did a slice of life.

 

>>18006
I really liked part six until they left the prison. Had some of the most inventive fights - that dragon guy and miu miu. The fights with Dio's sons were all pretty lame and the ending fight made absolutely no sense.

It was cool that Araki basically finished the Joestar's cursed line with the end of Stone Ocean though, and it explains why he had to do a reboot for part 7.

> good as death note

what lol DN is certified trash

Who is the best JoJo out of these ones? Which was the best protagonist and what is your favorite JoJo part out of parts 1-5

 

Out of 1-5 I liked Joskue and part 4 the best. However, I like part 7 the best.

 

Joseph was the best protagonist and also Battle Tendency my favorite part. I am not fan of episodic format of part 3 onward.

 

Please remember to double-check for a thread already on a topic

 

>>19273
3 was episodic villain of the week, 4 was episodic slice of life with villain of the week, 5 was back to the overarching narrative.

 

>>19289
4 was only episodic for like half of it, until the villain of the week turned out to be a serious threat and the rest of the show was about stopping him

Jojo no Yaiba episode 1

 

>>5094
I prefer the OVA artstyle to the anime tbh

 

>>19273
Have you only seen the animes, or have you read the mangas?

While Joseph is probably the best protagonist, (he's the reason if you even like part 2) – I think Johnny and Kira from "Dead men tell no tales", are really solid.

 

May as well post this

 

Maybe it's just me, but it feels like Jojo has, well not quite lost, but reduced in popularity on the internet. It feels like 2 or 3 years back you'd constantly get shit like "wuz dat a jojo reference" or any other meme and reaction images with the characters, and now it's just not as common. They still crop up from time to time, but not like before.

 

>>24262
Isn't that a good thing?

 

>>24263
I mean for me personally yes as I only liked the old OVA from a long time ago, and found the meme obsession boring.

I’m at the end of part 5 right now. It’s been a very fun turn my brain off show. I love the aesthetic. I love the soundtrack. Knowing where all the memes are from has been fun. Part 2 was probably my favorite. Johnathan was the most interesting and unique character after the absolute stiffness of part 1. Nothing has surpassed his ability to predict exactly what someone is going to say. As a gag, it never got old. It is the pinnacle of “WHILE YOU WERENT LOOKING I TIED YOUR SHOE LACES TOGETHER, ITS OVER!” that runs through the whole show. I get how they probably couldn’t make hammon interesting for more than 2 seasons, so stands make sense. So far my least favorite has been part 3. It was an absolute slog. I like the vibes but nothing happens. Shonen villain of the week shit doesn’t hit the same as when I’d get home after school to watch dbz and yuyuhakusho. Part 4’s style and color palette was so striking and the characters actually had a little depth, it made up for the slice of life slog of the first half. Part 5 has been pretty fun and engaging. Probably the most average of them all.
