>>45345978 Basically this. The new anime series came out, so some people rode that tidal wave over here, but it's one of those things where the more you think about JoJo, the more you realize that it's not a particularly deep or well-crafted series, and after the initial spectacle wears off, you're faced with one of the least intelligent shonen titles still in print.
Though, it is a bit of a shame. I have very little respect for JoJo, but I did have a fair amount of respect for the guys who ran the Super Stand Sunday, since they tried to stick to the discussing the series from a traditional games point of view instead of just making it a satellite of the /a/ threads.
>>45344961 >>45346226 Discussion petered out. A few of us are running games using the system that was made, but we figured not enough was being done in the threads. Just wait until April, it will be back.
>>45352630 I put Stone Free towards the bottom because for as crazy as it get's, I never really cared about any of the characters. Second for Part 4 being top of my list and the newest arc is doing great, but suffers from somewhat samey faces for the main cast.
>>45351698 I wonder how that works though. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of armed police to enforce the new rape laws. Most people would react negatively to losing their property, so they probably react very strongly to someone telling them they were going to be a slave tomorrow.
Actually, is it a good idea to tell people "yeah, you no longer have rights but you also have no reason to not violent commit crime since there's no way to punish you more than what you'll already endure until you die."?
Seems like that'd lead to total anarchy with the future slaves getting their hands on whatever weapons they can get or into whatever vehicles they can use and trying to carve a bloody path out of the country.
>>45346226 I would just like to take a moment to recognize this comment as the most civil and reasonable response I've ever seen on 4chan. I don't know whether to be awed or disgusted, but there's for sure something happening deep within my loins.
>>45352756 Well, it's a fairly small island nation for one, and the cops are pretty much the only people with guns for another. Still doesn't make a huge amount of sense, but if any culture was going to convert to a rape-slave based society, I'd say Japan is pretty much neck-and-neck with Haiti in that race.
>>45352756 Anon, it's Japan, when the government tells you that you are now a rape slave you bend over and spread. Just like when the company tells you that you need to pull a 180 hour work week for the rest of the month. Months. In your career.
>>45353162 Traditional Japanese work culture really doesn't help. Seniority is a big deal and can lead to extremely toxic relationships, people are generally expected to work themselves to death, and sick leave is a serious pain to acquire.
There's also the fact that at a certain year, literally more than half the country will be too old to work.
The fact of the matter is that if you go too deep into the "how do I create a rape-slave society" rabbit hole, you are gonna get real dark, real fast. So artists going for this scenario generally just handwave it.
Shindol's cool though. The faggot's got dedication to the things he loves.
He'll draw sweet stories about people who like each other giving good dickings to each other as long as the woman's basically a cripple and would be pretty much unable to function normally IRL. If that's not the case, then the lady will get violently raped and tortured and cast from human society.
>>45354146 >>45354160 The best part is that they'll give her a memorial and then go back to the routine. Shit, they'll probably commend her for being so dedicated and start telling other people to learn from her example
>>45354184 Are you implying the Japanese will care what filthy foreigners think? You're not even allowed to be a character in a Japanese story unless you're at least half, because if you're full you're just a retarded rape ape with no morals
>>45354240 Don't get me started on Ippo. How is this little nigger gonna be a multiple title winner and still be afraid to fuck his girlfriend because her brother might look at him funny? I'd be fucking her in his apartment just because he won't do shit
>>45354240 >Japan, this is America. If you don't stop making your workers kill themselves, we're going to stop importing hug pillows from you. And then we'll tell Canada not to come hang out anymore. That's right, what are you gonna do without that sizzurp?
>>45354301 He wouldn't though, that's the thing. He's a huge bitch. Takamura is the only dude in the whole series who might actually fuck you up, everybody else is too bust being a fucking professional clown.
What's the name of Ippo's rival? You know, the guy who Ippo could lay out without so much as breathing heavy? I can never remember it, because he hasn't done anything relevant in years
>>45354314 >Implying that Miyata isn't a really bad gag routine and the author hasn't been inserting better rivals for ages >Implying Sendou, Volg, Date, The Eventual Super Mexican, and Takamura aren't the real rivals
If the series ends without a fight between Ippo and Takamura I'll be displeased.
>>45354344 Ippo would have to eat Miyata to put on the weight he needs. Also, Takamura is a fucking killer. As good as Ippo is, and he's very good despite his inability to grow a pair of testicles to go with his pringles can dick, he'd get put into the ground going against Takamura
>>45352925 "Honorubu Senior Executive-Sama say you work 180 hour work weeks for next severar months." "B-but Honorubu Senior Supervisor-Sama there is onry 168 hours in a week!" "Work harder, make more time. Then commit Honorubu Sudoku for Dishonorubu Misconduct, Shaming yourself, your family, and this Company!" "Yes Sama-sempai-san-kun!"
>>45355999 Surprise surprise, that was actually a huge point of controversy when that part of the manga was in publication. There was public outrage, similar to the whole "violence in the media" stuff in the west, but more low-key.
>>45356064 which is part of the reason I liked it Part 3 was liked by nips because Jotaro was half-Jap despite part 3 being a snoozefest when compared to parts 1 and 2 Not that part 1 was amazing, but it was fast and cheesy good fun, but I digress
>>45356175 >not going to tiny-man's-land and laughing the skinny little midgets taking pride in "muh superior blood" in their face from above C'mon man, making fun of racial supremacists is half the fun of being /fit/ Jap Olympics is in 2020, lots of time to get Pillar Manned up
>>45356087 The Jotaro wank in the Eyes of Heaven game is terrible, with how he is immune to god mode Ultimate Dio's abilities because "their stands are the same" and with the way he actually beats him being complete bullshit that shouldn't have worked.
If any one single Joestar was going to be the person to beat Dio instead of a team effort it should have been Johnathan, would have made MUCH more sense thematically with him being 'the first' in terms of protagonists and Dio's rival. The bullshit handwave they used for Jotaro could have even made much more sense if it was applied to Johnathan because they literally have the same body from the neck down and that could be the bullshit reasoning for him not to be affected by it.
Its a real shame because the game actually looked really cool at first until the plot for the story mode was revealed.
>>45356307 >the way he actually beats him being complete bullshit that shouldn't have worked D4C's sponge rule totally and violently obliterates two identical items from parallel worlds. Using DIO's wrist bangles and getting them to touch triggered the sponge rule, oblitering Heaven DIO's arms in the process. Because "Over Heaven" only works via direct touch from his hands, Heaven DIO can never use Over Heaven again.

>>45357263 Dunno about that. Seen plenty of middle to upper class american born indian and arabic cuties turn sour around age 25. Its like they have faulty asian syndrome or something. They also seem to store and deal with fat differently than most.
>>45357414 Well, no offense but lifestyle of average middle class american is not exactly the shining example of healthy either. It's just that the bad stuff is less of booze&smokes and more of fatty&chemical.
>>45357465 True i'm just saying their bodies don't seem to handle life very well despite actual lifestyle. Its like they're pretty and young seemingly forever then one day you blink and the skin goes to shit, they got a belly or fat thighs and ass but nowhere else, tits seriously sag, nose and ears droop etc. its like all connective tissue collective loosens at once or something.
>>45358525 >>45358551 And look at that, Rock is the main character and the filter through which the world is viewed whereas Revy is a filthy, violent, gun-humping American slut along with all other Americans in Black Lagoon.
>>45358638 Rock comes out lot more... heroic it anime than the does in manga, because certain bits and pieces are left out for the sake of fitting the episode length. The part where he's as messed up as the rest of them only really shows in Robert's Blood Trail.
>>45358597 No, he was working for a CHINESE style criminal organization. Dumbass.
>>45358609 And yet, half the point of Rock is that he's just as bad as everyone he works with, and the people who run the company he worked for in Japan were MORE unpleasant to put up with than the people in Roanapur.
>>45358711 This. Also in japan the idea is your virginity makes your pure not being a pure person. Taking that away violently means you should now be an ammoral dick bag rather than in love on a wedding night to ensure you're a loving caring wife. Its like the "horny makes your nose bleed because blood pressure" even though that never happens. If you can't tell japan is oddly stuck in superstition, folktale, and bunk science even though they're technologically advanced and pretty 1st worldish.
>>45358731 >he was working for a CHINESE style criminal organization Chill, anon. It's been a while since I've watched the show and I couldn't remember if he worked with the Triad or his group just had an uneasy alliance with them.
Either way, the point of characters like Revy and Spike is that they're dirty lowlifes and far from the ideal hero. Carting them out as people who buck a trend is kinda the point of said characters.
>>45358795 Firstly, anon's assertion, which everyone was responding to, was literally that "you can't even be a character in a Japanese story" without beying at least half Japanese, which has been pretty thoroughly overturned at this point.
Secondly, you've utterly missed the point of Black Lagoon, which is that the criminal class of Roanapur are no worse than your average Japanese office worker.
Thirdly, Spike is pretty much a heroic character, even if he wouldn't admit it himself.
In closing, the entire idea that Japan hates westerners and doesn't care what the west thinks is completely retarded, and exposes you as someone who has never actually visited the country. The truth is that, like the US, Japan is split between a progressive younger generation and an exceedingly conservative, racism-prone older generation, with outliers in terms of age on either side of the politics split. The primary difference between them and us in this regard is that their youth is too polite for shit like Occupy Wall Street, and, similarly, their bigots are too polite for murdering racial minorities (they'd much rather kill themselves in a fit of honoraburu). Do you guys not see the inherent irony in accusing all Japs of being hateful xenophobes that think all Americans are gun-worshiping thugs? You are acting exactly the same as their racists do, forming completely retarded thoughts and opinions based on limited information and massive cognitive bias.
Japan's general population loves westerners and the west. They love western films, love western stories and mythology and culture. They love western people to a ridiculous degree. Ever been clubbing in Tokyo or Sapporo? Prepare to get into almost any club free of charge, receive free drinks, get high-fived so often your hands will be bruised by the end of the night, and end up on a platform being grinded on by a girl you were certain was out of your league.
>>45359311 This. Japs in city are Ameriboo as fuck. Especially the teens-early twenties. Crazy fact: they think our fastfood is god-tier. Especially pizza. Order a pizza in tokyo and you'll get cardboard and "CheeZ" for $20 equivalent. First thing i tell transfer students or visitors is try our pizza and then watch there damned faces explode because its actual good tasting food. To them if its convenient AND cheap then its guaranteeably shit quality whereas for us if we have to pay for it regardless of price or convenience the quality should be good.
