So does The World belong to Jonathan or Dio? Have we decided yet?
Why don't we all just crowdfund a translation of Jorge Joestar? It wouldn't be cheap, but it'd be doable. I pretty sure the guy who was working on it has given up, too.
But then how did The Joestars get stands?
But doesn't he say that Jonathan's body isn't his until he drinks Joseph's blood?
It's clearly DIO's stand.
>A reference to Holy Diver, which is DIO's most popular stand
>A stand that DIO can use to rule the world
>Looks like an Egyptian pharaoh.
>Araki notes that while he was writing part 3, he made it so that the stand heavily reflected it's user's personality.
Jonathan relates to none of this, it's either the hermit purple that was in Jorge and the second stand of DIO or nothing.
Good point, but how would the hermit purple 2.0 not represent dio? Beutiful rose lures you in, then thorns draw your blood. Also, if it wasn't dio's, how did he put his flesh into it?
Why is Kira such a crybaby? He cries when Koichi bullies him, too.
>using non-jojo response images in a "jojo thread"
you're trash, this thread is trash, everyone hates you, etc etc
I'm curious if the world could be Jonathan's, or Dio is the first person to have 2 stands
Take off that name, you don't need one to post, keeping it on only makes you look like an attention whore.
Hermit Purple 2.0 is practically useless for DIO's overall goals and doesn't reflect his character driven dreams, and it's only shown at the beginning of the series, also both Holly and Joseph both of hermit purple variants and they were the closest living relatives to Jonathan. If stands are blood related, that would explain why Jonathan's decedents have them in large quantity.
Araki has previously stated that the reason DIO has Hermit Purple 2 / Passion is due to his original plan of making DIO have the powers of every existing stand
this idea was scrapped early on, but that's the explanation, not some other contrived shit
He doesn't have full vampiric control of it yet, that's all.
Hermit Purple 2.0 from the Yellow Temperance chapters are a remnant of a time when The World had the powers of all other stand users.
Saying that hermit purple is Jonathan's stand makes a lot of sense though.
>It's his stand in Jorge
>Two Joestars have Hermit purple variants.
For the sake of the argument, I'd say that it's a good explanation to Araki's initial fuckup.
>it's his Stand in Jorge
Jorge is bullshit.
>Kira using Spin
>DIO being Jesus
>Kars just stealing a Stand
The only thing in that that made sense was Diavolo being a Stand like Anubis, but even that's questionable
What the Jorge novel does is it takes canon material, expands on it, and turns it into weird bullshit, every stand user in Jorge had their original stand.
I don't consider Jorge to be canon, but since Araki did supervise the production and writing of the Novel, it's not far fetched to think that if Jonathan were to be given a canon stand, it would be a hermit purple variant.
I just don't understand why they made him Kosaku and not Yoshikage. Canonically he's supposed to look more like the original Kira than Kosaku, artstyle nonwithstanding.
There's no point in talking to an exact clone of your younger self, you would already know everything that you're going to say. DIO might fill him in on some future events, but there would still be no point in discussing anything.
They would go straight to rough fucking.
>every stand user in Jorge had their original stand
What are you talking about? They were all different with maybe some simularities
Jorge has "Original form" characters, and alternate universe characters.
For example, the original Kira from the original universe in Jorge had Killer Queen as a stand.
Everything goes to shit once Pucci intervenes.
Oh right, sorry.
I've got a copy, I'd be more than happy to just scan the pages if anyone was interested. It's a long novel but I'm sure it'd be worth it.
How the FUCK does Heavy Weather work?
>How can you see others turn into snails if you're not affected by the rainbow yourself?
>Why do you have to touch the rainbow for it to affect you?
That's Secco Rottario, the Jorge Joestar counterpart. Behind him is Evil Dead.
If you scan the pages, I'll personally commission a translator and help gather a team to spearhead the project this very second.
I've been told it's over 500 pages long though, if it's not too much to ask can you scan at least 50 a day?
I already have a best friend. Why on earth would I need two?
The World = Johnathan's Stand
Scary Monster = Dio's Original Stand
Jotaro having a nigh identical stand to The World would be extremely improbable unless he was descended from someone with a similar stand, in which case it'd make perfect sense. And Johnathan, per Zeppeli's comment, was supposed to have outrageous potential all around.
Why aren't any of the Rock People playable?
So Pucci blinded himself to not be affected by the illusion of people turning into snails I think. I guess it's an illusion by messing with the ozone layer and refraction of light. I thought he was going to destroy the ozone layer
They have to keep characters out to sell new games in the future
Why doesn't he ever post any progress? Every time I hear him mentioned it's just that 'yeah he's definitely still working on it.'
>Josuke finally accepts himself as Josuke Higashikata, his own person and not just the sum of his parts.
>Something about the Rokkaka that give shim a costume upgrade with those wacky-ass spikes mixed with his sailor outfit
>His stand changes too
New part 4 visual
If anyone can post the higher resolution of this that would be cool.
>New part 4 visual
We saw it yesterday.
I'll send you an email in a just a moment, but to be frank unless you're someone that can also read moon and help to translate the text, I don't really need to contact you through email on a daily basis.
Just scanning the raw pages and uploading the chapters to an Imgur account should be more than enough to spark some fire back in this project.
I think I read something where it's explained as The World has the power of all the living Joestar stands, which is why it has Hermit Purple 2.0, why Dio could heal Pucci's club foot and why it could freeze time. Time freeze is inherently Jotaro's ability, but Dio adopted it with The World.
The World only needs one Truth
Mista > Bruno > Abbachio > Fugo > Trish > Narancia > Giorno
Jonathan also got a stand, Hermit Puple 1.
This activated all the other Joestars stands.
Like Jotaro with Star Platinum, Joseph with Hermit Purple 2, Josuke with Crazy Diamond and Giorno with GE
Narancia > Giorno > Mista > Bruno > Abbachio > Trish > Fugo
Muh nigga. Not enough people appreciate Iggy.
I mean Narancia was already a girl

>least favorite villain

Gyrodied for pretty much nothing/
>Jonathan shouting "ZA WARUDO!"
Also, who's Giorno's real father? (biologically speaking)
It's Johnathan's stand. DIO had a hard time controlling it because it was JoJo's stand and he was dead. How The World acted fits how we see stands with dead users act and DIO could only use it fully when he totally assimilates Johnathan's body.
>not all garbage with garbage stands
We haven't gotten to the actual villain or their close allies yet. Most of 8 so far has been pretty minor stands and villains.
The real rockman that will be playable hasn't shown up yet.
just watched the new trailer
>all those dope alts
>all of those happenings

i know she'll be in DLC..i just know it...
i really hope she gets in too, especially since her fighting style could be pretty versatile.

she could have a gauge like mistas bullets
How did /a/ react to this?
There is already a translation about 1/2 complete by someone who's an actual professional translator who does it in his spare time, probably worth contacting him too:
Way ahead of you there, anon. I'm already in the process of messaging him to make sure that the scanfag anon doesn't have to do any unnecessary work that is ultimately a waste of time.
A rarity: a pretty good JoJolion MAD. My favourite part is it includes the guy from Gappy's memories that is almost certainly never going to be mentioned again.
Godspeed anon. Just make sure you post it here or on the pastebin so I don't miss it!
It belongs to DIO, obviously, his life long ambition was to take the posessions and lives of the Joestars, so his stand takes their abilities.
It can't be that fucking hard to comprehend, I'm anime only and I've at least built some fucking hypothesis as to what's what.
Get your shit together retard.
And here I though /w/ still had threads going.
I use random ones from http://arakidoodles.com/ but you're better off asking around /w/ or looking in the jojo thread there. Pic related is mine right now.
The World is DIO's stand. Jonathan likely had his stand given to DIO via White Snake while Pucci and DIO were talking about the mona lisa so DIO can use Hermit Purple by the disc Pucci left him and can go back to The World at any time, or at least this is my headcannon.
>Crazy Diamond Takes A Crazy Shit
Gets me everytime.
Can someone post all panels from each part where they say the title? I can't find it and I guess I'm dumb because I can't find the right words to search for it.
>thinks Jorge is canon
>calls someone else a retard
JoJonium is canon because its Parts 1 and 2 rereleased, you dumb fuck
Well, that's just adorable.
>tfw gappy inherited johnny's dark determination
>liking foo fighters
>gyro best brojo
such pleb taste
>Admitting that you purposefully choose things as "favorite" because they stand out and are unique
Well aren't you a snowflake?
That dull as dirt guy who trashed all the majesty and mystery behind the stone mask? hate is a strong word, but I don't care for him.
Why is everything hate hate hate? I like him just fine. I just like him the least
>liking foo fighters
She's a qt. What can I say?
>gyro best brojo
Now you're just being a faggot if you've got a problem with this one
whoa, dude. kars was not dull as dirt. he was a deep villain if you go back and reread part 2. his desire for the preservation of life and quest to unify with it make him a lot more interesting. he also brought more intrigue to the stone mask in my opinion.
also how can gio be your least fave when jotaro exists? opinions are opinions, but damn son.
Quick, place your bets on who will be the star of today's character video.
>how does it represent Joseph
It reflects Joseph's ability to outwit his enemies and predict their words/actions (clairvoyance) with its ropy nature representative of all of his clacker and string tricks.
If he had Hermit Purple back in Part 2, he would've completely dominated the Pillar Men.
>his desire for the preservation of life
That surer went over well when he basically became "all life".
>how can gio be your least fave when jotaro exists
If it was just part 3 Jotaro, I'd have to take Gio over him yea. But Given that he had parts 4 through 6 to gain a little bit of development. I especially like his relationship with Jolyne. He was a deadbeat dad, but he really did love her in his own way.
>1-6 Joestar bloodline described as having a hereditary sense for goodness in different shades
>Johnny's murderous will replaces that in the new universe
And this I guess, if it counts.
Speaking of D'Arby what happened to Miraschon? I know her stand was from a disk but it seems very strange that she was given the particular stand that was VERY similar to the brothers'. Also she had Daniel's "Good!" quirk and would have been about the correct age if she had been the daughter of Telence or Daniel. Maybe it's just headcanon because she has hardly any information about her but could she be related?
here's the correct answer to all of these questions
I'm also a fucking faggot who can't post anything right
no, no it does not. they ruin the cosplay and make it look like you're trying to graft a characters face on to yours and it never works. pic related.
Do you guys think that Tonio is a real/good chef? People don't seem to enjoy his dishes so much as they like how Pearl Jam fixes their bodies.
I designed a stand today
I call it M|O|O|N
It has 3 bomb types and holds 18 at a time (generating one bomb every 10 seconds)
Each bomb's powers stack onto each other for greater power when multiple are used at once.
A frost bomb holding the cold of space to send freezing dust crystals out upon explosion to slow or freeze an object or body part.
A gravity hover bomb makes a 5 meter space suspend objects in a weightless form for 2-6 seconds.
A gravity sticky bomb pulls the target closer to the stand user or to another bomb.
Destroying all 18 bombs at once creates a beam of powerful Moonlight.
I might have to work with the extra features of the stand's design some more but i like what I built today
from ripping off C-Moon, Echoes Act 3, and Pet Shop simultaneously
I want pearl jam to fix my teeth and skin conditions
I liked his episode because it was one of the rare "here's a neat story that uses the concept of Stands in a non-combat way" instead of the usual "which punch-ghost will the heroes fight next" fare.
I know Joseph can use Hamon to shock people into unconsciousness and Kars could produce it to such a degree that it melted flesh, but would Caesar's lasers actually hurt none-vampires?
I hope he has a unique DHA with Part 8 Josuke. You know, because they both love bubbles.
>I hope he has a unique DHA with Part 8 Josuke.
>Jonathan and Dio don't have one
>Jonathan and DIO don't have one
>Caesar and Lisa Lisa don't have one
>Avdol and Iggy don't have one
>Josuke and Jotaro (3) didn't have one in the demo
Why are Part 8 Stands so underwhelming?
>Just finished SBR
>Hear good things about Jojolion
>Cool stand designs
>King nothing catches my eye
>"Wow-e. That's fucking neato! Can't wait to find out what its power is!"
>smells things real good lol
I was monumentally disappointed
On the subject of pt 8 stands, what the fuck is the deal with Soft and Wet? Why are its powers so fucking vague?
What limitations does it have in terms of things it can steal?
Could Josuke just say "I steal your life" and instantly kill his enemies?
it seems to have some limiter on its power. or josuke is just a retard and isn't aware of his own capability. though, i believe soft and wet can mainly remove physical property? thats what it would seem at least.
I really hope we find out a bunch more about JoJolion Kira's "Killer Queen" and Josefumi's stand which merged to make Soft and Wet.
And if it's not called something like "King Diamond" and a Crazy D clone to make the King + Queen = Prince (song) pun complete I'll be devastated.
It really isn't that vague at all. Friction was a bit odd but that's just the usual early part weirdness and Araki toned it down a little since. It's still a very strong stand but it feels rather concrete now.
This discussion has me looking back at the start of JoJolion, and man, the art's already actually changed quite a bit from when it started.
It could be the scans/cleaning of course, but it seems a bit cleaner over all nowadays.
Are people still considering the possibility of Gorgeous Irene being added to EoH as DLC?
If that's the case, then it doesn't seem unlikely that we will get other characters as DLC as well. FF, Yasuho, some members of the Execution Squad, even the ayylien and Oingo Boingo; they all have little to no presence in this game from what we've seen so far. If we're not getting any more support characters, then that further increases their chances of being DLC, at the minor expense of putting H O T P A N T S shitposters on suicide watch.
Even if none of this comes to pass, I'll be happy if Yasuho is present in the story mode, going by Joshuu's dialogue.
>Revealing characters that have already been shown in previous scans, the tournament and everything else ever and still pretending they're a big deal
Mind giving a link? My night just got a whole lot better.
Not him, but I'm assuming this is what he was talking about. It's the closest I could find.
I just finished watching the dub. It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. Stroheim was terrible, though.
I'd say my biggest complaint, though, is that Old Joseph has a British accent, since that would carry over into Stardust Crusaders. Seriously, he obviously has an American accent in the Japanese version. He's also been living in America for over fifty years with a job that involves talking with people at every waking hour of the day. There's no way he'd keep his accent without practicing it, and he couldn't even practice the Ripple, which literally just involves breathing.
Sexually, Johnny's depravity brings down his counterpart's purity, while the Josukes are both romantics by nature.
You rarely get translations for this sort of stuff unless some group is interested. There are some Josuke doujins I'd like to get in English, but that tripfag Giorno hates him for some reason.
>Implying Jonathan isn't moe as fuck
If anything the artist nailed the design on him at least.
Perhaps personality wise, but he should at least have a similar facial structure to Dio. I wouldn't be able to tell the girl they drew apart from any other typical moeblob if it weren't for the neck scar.
So now that we're getting part 4 animated, it's pretty much guaranteed we'll get part 5 too considering how popular it is in Japan, right?
>More like if Part 4 does well and we get Part 5, a Part 6 is 100% guaranteed.
This doesn't make any sense.
>Part 4 isn't that popular in Japan I thought?
It's not quite at 3's or 5's level but it's up there.
Part 5's oversea popularity is going to rake in the dough, which guarantees Part 6 getting made.
>Part 3 did worse than the first season
That's David's fault, they fucked up Part 3 and made it boring as shit.
Part 4 is a bit longer, but still, they really need to dedicate to 3 seasons instead of 4.
So there is literally no hope for FF and HP?
no chance at all?
Part 4 was literally confirmed last year by an animation director who threatened a Part 5 anime's existence on Twitter if we didn't buy the Part 3 BDs.
I'm not making this up. We should still buy the Part 3 BDs if we ever want to see those crazy DBZ stands in VA animated.
Fell for that with Square Enix, never again
What kind of anime original content will DP add?
I need to make a plan for what I'm going to eat during the Tonio episode. Food always tastes better when I'm seeing it prepared/cooked/eaten on the telly, and Soma really ignited my tastebuds during its 2 cours.
Tokyo Ghoul also made me really want to eat spaghetti, for some reason.
It's that time once again, draw your favorite JoJo character based off of memory.
I already drew Deigo, so here's my second favorite character.
All I can think of is DP giving Anne a proper send off, as well as Jotaro talking to Suzi Q over the phone.
I agree, little Jolyne with her current hairstyle being some heartmelty moeblob would just be sad, especially considering she ends up masturbating in a holding cell when we first see her in SO. More Yukako, the ayylien, Tonio, and pic related being cute would be preferable in small SoL doses.
Anyone who wants this is autistic and more suited to sites like Tumblr that cater to fan-created-content.
It's canon that Jolyne spent her life in America and didn't have much interaction with Jotaro.
Part 2's epilogue was more visual.
Runaway Girl on the plane, Jotaro getting his coat back, HOT COLA!, Suzi Q on the phone used to drag out High Priestess, the entire part 3 season 1 ending sequence with the buggy. Explanation for the picture present in part 5.
Unfortunately Egypt cut more than it added, and what it did add was shit.
It's the only season I didn't like.
>Everyone is out celebrating with their family
>You're stuck here shitposting in a jojo thread
Actually that Anon, Yes, I'd be down with that.
Jotaro just doesn't know how to be a father because of the absence of his own father. You can assume the way Jolyne feels about Jotaro early on is how Jotaro felt about Sadao all throughout part 3.
Jotaro definitely cared about his daughter, he was just never taught how to show it as a father.
>There will never be Lolyne porn
I'm honestly tempted to commission some
agreed. i especially want more ayylien since he hardly got airtime. he was such a fun character, along with tonio. >>134011191
no, dude. it was arakis intention to make jotaro seem like a scumbag dad. wake up, anon.
