What's your favorite stand, /a/?
>mine is pic related
Even though its abilities are kind of boring, Purple Haze's design and his batshit insane stand cry makes up for it.
To back its stand master's a shit.
I fucking love part 7.
Araki got rid of all the gaudyness that plagued the series since part 3, and refined his art into this really detailed, yet still minimal style that looks amazing and is years ahead of any other mangaka.
Same goes for the plot too. He got rid of the bullshit while keeping the bizarre essence still intact.
Easily the best part. Yes, even better than 4.
I hope part 8 turns out to be as good.
Can we all agree that Jotaro vs Dio is the biggest wasted potential in manga so far
>could be a really cool fight against terrifying power of time stopping
>lel nevermind Jotaro can percieve stopped time otta the ass so The World is degraded to glorified short time paralyze
It's really moe when it laughs.
Has to be King Crimson, since confusion will be his epitaph.
Killer queen is a close second though, since a tall pink catman is aesthetically pleasing to me.
It's still AWAKEN, MY MASTERS for me. That was a real pants shitter. They just had a hell of a time getting rid of Santana, and now there's three more of him? And they're more powerful? Holy shit son get me some new underwear
>Killer queen is a close second though, since a tall pink catman is aesthetically pleasing to me.
That's really the entire reason it's my favorite. Araki is all over the place when it comes to character/Stand designs, but he really knocked it out of the park with Killer Queen.
My favourite overall stand is probably Killer Queen.
My favourite protagonist stand is Crazy Diamond or maybe Soft & Wet.
My favourite non-main character stand is Catch The Rainbow.
I knew it was coming because I don't give a shit about spoilers and that still got me screaming like a girl
Also, if jojo related media in general counts, not just the manga, watching the match in pic related takes the fucking cake
YouTube video of full match?
I kind of always wanted to get into the JoJo fighter, but I'd pretty much have to stick to playing on Fightcade and it's apparently really hard to get into. I want to play Kakyoin but apparently he's the hardest (and best) character in the game, so I'd have to settle for playing basics with Avdo since he's apparently basic as hell.
This, especially having gone through the wild ride leading up to it.
Nah, he was cool, had ambition and an amazing Stand, but sadly (for him) Pucci doesn't fuck around.
One of mine has to be Part 6 during the Pucci-Jolyne fight at the Space Center when
time stop out of nowhere and jotaro shows up.Not the most hype, but like it for the pure "now you fucked up" value That is until everyone JoJobbed against Pucci
>Jotaro vs Dio
Honestly, I thought it was pretty badass if you look into the whole tarot card thing, plus one of Dio's quotes.
"My stand has the power to control the world," or something like that.
And Jotaro's tarot card is the Star, you know? Not of this world, and all that.
I'm just salty that he learned to stop time for no reason.
[s]And that, unrelated, the whole space warping aspect of Josuke's stand got dropped.[/s]
>Doppio: Is this... A test for me? I must defeat a test from the past... I ACCEPT"
>Diavolo: If one wishes to grow, he must conquer jis inexperienced past
The transformation was so contrast you couldn't believe it was the same character.
Johnny was literally the shittiest JoJo and doomed not only America to a 2nd term of Grover Cleveland, but a hard-working family of fruit farmers to turn to rock.
>control + f metallica
Poor taste lads
Phantom Blood, but the Stone Mask is replaced with pic related.
JoJo tries the mask on growing up, but all it does is make him an overtly selfish glutton. Overnight, all the food in the kitchen disappears and nobody knows how it happened. JoJo doesn't confess, but Dio saw. Dio even knows where the mask is hidden in JoJo's study.
When JoJo heads to Ogre Street, Dio steals the mask in case JoJo comes back alive.
Zeppeli's crew is never slaughtered, so JoJo's mentor would be Dire.
This mask does not recover wounds, so the key to the final battle is to remove it from Dio's face so that his wounds from the mansion can finally kill him.
Wang Chung removes Dio's head and gets away with the mask without anyone noticing. The mask that JoJo thinks he's destroyed is in fact a fake. Dio lives on as a big dumb cartoon head and still wants to take JoJo's body. Dio succeeds, but not before JoJo uses Wang Chung's body to sink the ship.
Killer Queen, Sticky Fingers, Tusk, and D4C are also respectable choices.
Why did he have to die man, he was a saint
Holy shit, part 7's end is such a wild ride
Or I should say roundabout journey
Hey doc can you remove Hot Pants from this picture?
I like the concept of Heaven's door, but I think it's so overpowered that it's actually an extremely cheap stand.
Heaven's door would be one of my favorite stands if I couldn't add anything to the victim, only read information about them and understand how to manipulate them willingly.
Speaking of diamonds, I like DiU's ending the most.
>Kira dies in the most ironic manner possible
>everyone is present to see Reimi pass on
>Jotaro, Joseph and the babby fuck off back to America to neglect Jolyne some more
>Josuke steals his father's wallet and happily spends the summer scamming Rohan out of his shekels
>everything turns out gureato
Probably pic related for how goddamn terrifying it is.
Tusk is a top tier runner up though.
DiU is my least favorite ending.
>Kira throws away his character because he thinks he's invincible.
>Doesn't care about his quiet life, just wants to mock Josuke and the gang
>Screams out his name
>Only lost because he was retarded
>Discarded subplot involving his wife and possible humanity regarding feelings for his family
It just felt rushed and plain bad, like Araki just wanted to get it over with and forced everyone to fight.
If we're just talking about the very last seconds of the ending and not the moments that lead up to it, DiU is great.
But the whole setting of the fight and the circumstance surrounding the ending was terrible, one great moment of pure hysterical irony couldn't make up for it.
Cmoon is just a dumb baby, speed king is pretty solid
That sounds like fanfiction to me, I don't think JoJolion confirmed anything remotely close to that.
Granted, we don't know everything about Speed King, but until something new is confirmed i'll always see it as the Hot Pocket stand.
One of the members of King Crimson is aware of the JoJo cameo, and Vanilla Ice and Weird Al made an Instagram post about it.
No idea if they've actually read the series though.
That would be interesting, but unless you know him well enough don't go out of your way to bother him about it.
>You will never be able to draw like Araki
Araki can't draw from memory, he exclusively uses references.
The amount of patience that man has is fucking inhuman though, he once streamed himself drawing for 11 hours straight with one break for lunch.
>>Who are you gonna main
I probably won't even play this game
>>What are you most excited about
>>Who do you still want in
>>What are you disappointed about
Fighting seems a bit clunky
Some color schemes
Is it even worth maining anyone in a game like this?
The story even if it is just a bunch of dumb fanfiction nonsense
Gyro and Jotaro's color schemes, Josuke 8's movelist still being super inaccurate to the manga.
It's Tumblr being retarded. Nothing special.
>there are people who unironically think narancia is a tranny
There's no joke here faggot
If there is one, then it's shit
>making up retarded bullshit to make something funny
Was Jonathon the only person DIO loved bar his mother?
He was happy with Pucci + VI, but i always felt they were never up there
If you do this your a fucking loser.
>heh usd the hadn to matursbat an remov hid ick xD
And you said I'm retarded?
The thing is, the joke would make sense if it was told on it's own. But posting it as a screencap of someone's tumblr when you know the sort of expectations people have of tumblr is just asking for misunderstanding.
Don't just go around calling people retarded.
If you had to explain the joke then there was never a joke to begin with.
Don't be such an idiot, there's no joke there. It's just a thing Tumblr does. Check this out.
How can you even consider something so strained and forced and lame to be an "obvious joke"?
The rabbit hole goes much deeper, at this point I can't tell if it's ironic or not, why would someone do this?
>hurr durr shut up there is no explanation i'm not retarded
Get directly spoonfed the explanation for a simple joke even after it was explained
>hurr durr its just a shit explanation i-i'm not retarded i swear
nice damage control mate
Daily reminder that Naranciafag literally contribute nothing of value and post pure retardation and fanart while claiming "I-i'm not gay I just want to fuck a man who looks like a shitty tranny"
>Getting a very subtle and easily concealed tattoo makes you a loser.
/r9k/ Please don't project your insecurities here. As long as you aren't an overweight neckbeard and can pull it off, there's nothing wrong with getting a Joestar tattoo.
Not that i'd get one anyway, but as long as an anon was fit enough to pull it off, i'd think it would be great.
Not that I promote the Naranciafag, but getting into this stupid offtopic squabble is just as cancerous.
used to be killer queen but after finishing part 7 gotta say D4C takes it
also can we agree so far that: part 2 > part 1 >part 3 > part 4 >part 7 >part 6 >part 5
and I'm just starting part 8 so I'll leave it for when I get caught up
Who's the angriest stand?
who's the angriest stand user?
only /fit/ allowed
Is Rikiel the craziest JoJo character?
>Lights himself on fire when Jolyne does
>Worries about his bike in the middle of the fight
>has nervous breakdowns
>uses his Stand to make Emporio pee blood, control Ermes' mouth muscles, among other things
Rykiel's goal probably wasn't to make him pee blood. Emporio pissed himself because he was scared, it just turned out to be blood because he hit specific organs.
This cream cosplayer is insane
The Fight With Petshop was amazing
You're one of the few people across the world with souls so strong they manifest into physical entities.
But all yours can amount to is a grapevine that takes pictures. You're slightly cooler than all the normies in the world, but a laughing stock among stand users. You'll never fit in with either crowd
Describe your first encounter with Jojo /a/
For me it was when I got the dream-cast game
>14th birthday or something
>>Dad knew I liked the animu's so he got me the jojo game even if he had no idea what it was
>>Had no fucking idea who any of the characters where
>>All these weird ass powers
>>motherfucking machinegun titties
Fuck was I confused.
It's not that its subtle its that its fucking boring. Get something cool like a Killer Queen skull or something if you want it to be low-key.
Personally debating getting the Deadman's Questions logo.
4chan sucked it's dick nonstop so when the anime adaptation was announced I decided to check it out (albeit around the time that Stardust Crusaders started airing). Ended up deciding to read through the rest once Part 3 finished.
Roller roader gifs and memes back in 2006, I picked up the manga but the piss yellow Stardust Crusaders scans almost made me drop the series entirely.
yfw Part 4 ED.
Do you even know what "Low key" means? The point is that they don't want a over designed tattoo, or something subtle enough that only a fellow JoJo fan would be able to recognize it.
I was probably 14-15 or whatever and I was subscribed to the US version of shonen jump, and iin that partiuclar month they had the first few chapters of SC in it.
Thought it looked ugly as shit and forgot about it for years till a friend of mine showed me the OVA and suggested I watch it since he thought I would like it, from there I watched the 2012 anime and read part 4 and so on.
Since were already sort of on-topic, I thought about buying this T-Shirt, it looks good, is rather subtle and secondaries won't recognize it either.
Yeah but the birthmark's way over-done and boring, and there's plenty of other cool things they could get that other Jojo fans would recognize without it being super detailed and obvious.
I wonder, what's wrong with Araki? While his closeups are pretty good, his art style overall is worsening.
I'm reading JoJolion now, and the fact that the anatomy is not really good, and the fact that that fucking stone dog barely resembles a dog at all is worrying me. While he wasn't exactly Leonardo Da Vinci his anatomy was good even with all that QUALITY and those impossible poses up to Part IV. Iggy even looked like a dog in both designs. Starting from Part V his art started to worsen, in mid Part VII became better but then the sameface syndrome struck with everyone having the same model expression and the anatomy took a huge hit.
Didn't they start turning into rock after Johnny brought the sacred corpse to them? Rina's issue was a disease she happened to catch, so he brought it there. Then the corpse started trading off the fortune and the misfortune with the Higashikata family.
Overdone in this case is just another way to say iconic, it's a Joestar trademark.
If you're someone that is interested in getting tattoos, something less subtle and more creative would be more up your alley, but if you aren't and are just interested in getting one out of respect for the series or just by being a big fan I can understand how they would stick to something more simple and subtle.
Iwasuke also turns into stone and walks through walls. One of the chapter title pages calls him a rock dog too. Just look at its tail and tell me it's meant to look like any real dog breed.
>While he wasn't exactly Leonardo Da Vinci his anatomy was good even with all that QUALITY and those impossible poses up to Part IV.
Then he should get Kohei Horikoshi (the manga author of Boku no Hero Academia, he draws hands like a motherfucker, and best girls, too).
Damn, if Horikoshi drew stands, that'd be the tits.
Okay, you might be right there, but why does he draw Tsurugi like he had Down's or was retarded?
I'll tell you something, though, the beetle battle was fucking amazing, and I had no complaints about the art style in there. The beetles were fucking mint.
We're nearing the end guys... and he has something good planned for it.
Are these hands more akin to what you wanted?
>Then he should get Kohei Horikoshi (the manga author of Boku no Hero Academia, he draws hands like a motherfucker, and best girls, too).
That or, literally any other manga artist that can draw semi decent hands and feet.
Araki's children are always weird-looking. It's pretty stylized though so it has never bothered me much other than with naked Hayato and his deformed body.
I'm pretty convinced Tsurugi in particular is inspired by Yoshitomo Nara's art. Look him up, Tsurugi is a dead ringer for his characters.
God no, get that thing away from me.
Well, with Hayato I can understand why, it was actually in line with the art style of his back then. Tsurugi seems to clash with Josuke, Jobin, Norisuke or Joushuu, it's like they're from two different worlds.
As to the inspiration, it does look like it comes from Nara. It just bothers me a bit, it's all.
>7 melon again
>2 whipped cream
>8 Whipped cream again
>Part 7 is a retelling of part 1
>part 8 has hints of part 2 in the form of pillar men and rock men.
Late response, because some of us actually need to get up in the morning, but it's not a head-canon.
You're just a child who needs everything jammed in your face with a big ol spoon
Surely that's just Star Platinum's famed speed again. There's no reason Jotaro wouldn't tell anyone in his crew if he got a new ability like that. He didn't feel Dio's timestop either until Joseph told him about it.
Is pretty much my response.
Star Platinum's famed speed could have just been Jotaro stopping time subconsciously. Also, feats like pic related might also be explained by time stop.
When he faced DIO, he already had an idea that their stands might be similar.
Or Hell, it could have just been Star Platinum doing it without Jotaro's knowledge. Star Platinum is one of the stands we KNOW can act independently of Jotaro.
It's the Joestar guardian stand, probably was Jonathan's soul protecting his line.
obvious this should be Part 4 ED, imagine pic related followed by it kicking in
I love how boss Magician's Red looks all the time. Just like how an actual bird of prey has permanent impending doom face.
It would only probably affect stands of the same type like Jotaro and DIO.
Jotaro would probably just stand there wondering whats happening when DIO was practising his time stop.
I enjoy his earlier appearance as well. Remember when it had human feet?
That meme was fun, but I'm over it and would like to talk constructively.
He can't just use BTD whenever he feels like it. It's got a very specific set of conditions that renders it useless in any situation except for the very specific one he was in when he got it.
He might have had general ideas of what he wanted to do but he was clearly making it up as he went. Why did Dio have purple Hermit? Whats the Deal with the 2nd Coffin/Trap Door? What was the deal with that Invisible Baby? Or that Rat with the Stand? Part 4 Didn't have a focus till Kira got introduced.
Some Parts were really well put together in the end but some were clearly asspulls
Wait, when did it stop having human feet? I usually ignore the feet because araki feet.
>Why did DIO have Hermit Purple?
DIO was going to have all the Stands but Araki dropped it
>What was up with the baby?
Shizuka just had that Stand power. She was a Joestar after all
>What about the Stand Rats
Akira shot them with a arrow. They had to be killed because they were murdering people.
That's pretty much been my headcannon for a while now too. It would also explain the little things like pic related. I like to think Jotaro just learned how to time stop by himself around then but only told DIO after the road roller and all other past times like getting drinks during D'Arby was Star Platinum being able to do things instinctively in stopped time without Jotaro's knowledge.
My two other headcannons:
Valentine's silent footsteps was the result of the president putting his soles in another dimension as they were inbetween the ground and his feet.
Stroheim threw Joseph's arm at Kars, he's the real hero of Battle Tendency.
I get that DIO was supposed to have all DEM POWERS but it just shows he haddn't made up his mind yet on where he wanted the story to go.
I get that the baby's invisibility was stand power but why was it there from a story standpoint?
I think they stopped caring because it died? Same with bastet, D'arbys, anubis, pet shop and yellow temprance: all stands that were admitted to be "super strong", but once they died/retired, the crusaders stopped caring about them.
It was his explanation because he original intended to give The World all the stand abilities that appeared in the part.
But then he realized it would have been ridiculous, so he just has Star Platinum except not.
Valentine's steps were foreshadowing for there being many Valentines and I do mean actual foreshadowing, not made up headcanons. Only a couple chapters after Scarlet said his steps were silent there was a full page dedicated to pointing out the stepping sound effects.
Later on in the spread where he and DISCO are approaching from different sides DISCO gets big STEP STEP sound effects while Valentine gets none. Later when he kills Gyro and starts walking towards Johnny he has the STEP STEP back again.
I get this feeling that Araki had intended to pace Stardust (Heritage) like he did the previous parts, but ended up getting pushed into doing a more long-running blatantly weekly/Jump-like series.
What really bugs me is that if the second Hermit Purple-like stand is Jonathan's, that would sort of mean that those stands probably developed to compliment their hamon ability.
Imagine parts 1+2 had Jonathan and Joseph possessed invisible ripple conducting vines.
But if that's the case, what is it about Jotaro that he developed a huge muscular aztec man to match Dio Brando's stand in power and ability?
It's not stated so I think sending out too many Valentines would make him high profile and any witnesses would become suspicious as to what they're seeing.
But that makes me wonder, how would a fight between an army of Valentines and Bad Company go?
Oh, me too. People bring up Another World's Diego, but that faggot wore a turtle-neck the whole time, so how do you know he didn't cut some alt.Johnny's head clean off?
Or it's like Scary Monster, and he obtained the stand while being under it's effect while the user died.
Since Dio TAKES things.
Aside from the fact that he had no real reason to use many of those abilities in a stand fight. That's something I also believe, anything vampiric DIO did was solely related to his head.
He meant their similar appearance. It also doesn't make sense that Jotaro would just happen to develop almost identical stand stat/ability wise. It's not that I think The World is Jonathan's stand, It's that I think DIO stole Jonathan's dormant ability and made it his own. Along with his body. Along with his bloodline.
Jonathan was probably trying to stop time really hard right here.
This may sound stupid or non-nonsensical but I'll try giving my explanation:
Jonathan would have had HP.
Joseph had HP.
Holly had some version of HP.
Dio had The World.
Jotaro not having HP could be that he took on the soul of jazz from his father rather than the Joestar's soul from his mother.
Josuke had CD since, similarly, he could have taken on his grandpa's soul of the law rather than Joseph's as maybe Joseph was too genetically weak to pass down HP at his age when he fucked Tomoko, who in turn passed down her father (Josuke's grandpa's) soul.
The only reason Jotaro and Josuke's stands awakened was because of Dio's stand being awakened. Whether Jotaro's father and Josuke's gramps had SP and CD is unknown but if they didn't, it could still be that they were just locked in their souls and passed down to those who could activate them aka Jotaro and Josuke.
Why did Dio use HP at one point? Simple. Pucci knew Dio at the time so Dio got White Snake to eject Jonathan's stand disc from his still resistant corpse and let Dio play around with both HP and The World.
>Simple. Pucci knew Dio at the time so Dio got White Snake to eject Jonathan's stand disc from his still resistant corpse and let Dio play around with both HP and The World.
I don't know how you people can think this and yet call me out for fanfiction/head-canon bullshit when I say that Star Platinum is Jonathan.
Jotaro inherited Jonathan's protective spirit
unless it's Bruford
>>That doesn't answer my question
Yes it does you mongoloid, I said "No", that's an answer, I never claimed what you said I claimed.
>>I know what happened.
I'm saying that the whole theme is that Dio 'takes' and Jojo 'inherits'
And I'm saying the only stand Dio/Diego has been shown with is The World.
Maybe The World is what you get when you combine Dio and Jonathan's stands.
Dio taking Jonathan's corpse seems to create an actual 'curse'. Dio was essentially forcing himself into their 'bloodline', and we know that something that effects someone close to you on your family line can have serious physical effects like with Enya/J.Geil and Trish/Diavolo.
Baby Face is a shit Stand.
>You have to get 2 peoples DNA
>Then this thing is born
>You have to tell it what to do
>You can't control it
>Sometimes it doesn't listen to you
How was Melone a master assassin again?
>Joseph's soul is a barbed tentacle that takes hidden photographs of you without you knowing it.
>Rykiel's soul is a /fa/shionable wristwatch
Now that I look at it, what the hell is that crust and why does it look like it has so much of flour on it
He stole his stand and his back story from Shia during Holes
All Along The Watchtower is best stand
I hope when DP gets to part 5 they sneak in cards spying on everyone throughout
