I've been thinking about watching Jojo's Bizarre adventure, but with the multiple series and season names I don't know where to start. A little help would be appreciated.
JJBA 2012 (Part 1 and 2)
JJBA Stardust Crusaders (Part 3 Act-1)
JJBA SC Egypt Arc (Part 3 Act-2)
JJBA OVA (Part 3 OVA from 1993-2000)
JJBA Diamond is Unbreakable (Part 4)
Exactly, but I guess he just pointed it out as I was done typing.
Now leave as of this moment before you get bombarded with spoilers and don't come back until you learn to think for yourself.
start with season 1, which is part 1: phantom blood and then part 2: battle tendency
watch through stardust crusaders
after you can either wait to watch the anime of part 4 or read the manga from there on
make sure to stay out of jojo threads, they'll spoil you
The OVA is sorta like the goodie extras. I`m not expecting him to watch it but if he liked what he got out of the anime then the OVA is a sure recommendation.
Watch the first episode of Phantom Blood, skip Battle Tendency (trash and not important), watch only the Tower of Grey fight, Darby the Player and Dio's World in Stardust Crusaders, skip Diamond is Unbreakable (trash, no good translation), read Part 5 (fantastic, only good part in the series), skip Stone Ocean except for Dragon's Dream and Pucci's flashback chapters, skip all of Steelball Run (translation is fine but it's garbage, generally considered the worst part), don't bother with Jojolion it won't be done for at least a decade.
hope that helps
What the fuck?
Watch the first season of the anime, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. The first 9 episodes are Part I: Phantom Blood and the rest (up to 26 I believe?) is Part II: Battle Tendency.
Then watch Season 2, which is Stardust Crusaders (24 episodes) and then Season 3, which is Stardust Crusaders: Egypt Arc, and also 24 episodes.
After that, you can jump into the manga:
Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable
Part 5: Vento Aureo
Part 6: Stone Ocean
Part 7: Steel Ball Run
Part 8: Jojolion (ongoing)
Now get out of the JoJo threads on /a/ because people are very adamant of spoiling certain character's death's, and such.
Read Part 1, then read Part 2, then read Part 3, then read Part 4, then read Part 5, then read Part 6, then read Part 7, then read Part 8
It might be better animated but considering what it's animated looks like shit I wouldn't say its a major selling point.
I seriously do not like the character designs in the OVA.
start with the first one, otherwise you won't understand fuck all.
Yes, the art style is strange, but you get used to it. It's over the top as fuck, so just go with it and enjoy it.
Also, Dio is a superbastard.
