"Nothing beats this brojojomance!" edition.
Objectively speaking, what makes Araki a good writer and what makes him a bad writer?
I don't think he's a very good writer. I can't stand his reliance on 『KEY PHRASES』, I don't think his plots are very compelling, his characters suffer from inconsistency, not to mention his continuity issues. And his tendency to ominscent-narrator-info-dump.
But he's good at coming up with weird shit you won't see anywhere else, raising tension, and the art is unique as well.
I don't know if the shirt guy is still here
To me this would make a cool shirt. Only concern is it's a little too subtle if anything, not sure I would get it if I saw someone wearing this.
It's supposed to be soft and wet's bubbles
I wish this one didn't have the text. Totally passable as a random robot design
The sweater version looks amazing.
Because I want to post something new whenever I reply to someone with my trip unless I'm fulfilling a request.
Hey guys, is there any illustration by Araki of this pose?? Thanks.
Good: Character interactions, creativity, cathartic beatdowns, and great death scenes.
Bad: Poor continuity, asspulls, some unsatisfying conclusions, and wasted potential.
That last one especially.
>Josuke's hero was just some random dude with shitty hair.
Does a gif/webm of Giorno&Dio and Jolyine&Jotaro team attack of Eyes of Heaven exist? Specially the MUDA team.
Also I want to know if somebody got erected at the idea of father and child ORAing and MUDAing the opponent
He didn't necessarily have to be a time-traveling Josuke. My issue is more that the story sets him up as a mystery and then never mentions him again. He's one of the most important figures to the main protagonist's life yet he has no direct influence on the plot, he never appears outside that one flashback, and we know nothing about him other than his hairstyle.
I posted this last night, but I missed if I got an answer

There will be a part 9 eventually.
What part that hasn't been covered do you want to be 'reimagined' in the Alternate Universe?
i want jojo to go full circle and go back to manly muscular men.
The lean bodies is more artistic than anything else. Look at how Araki has redrawn Jonathan, Joseph, and Jotaro. Just imagine the first 6 parts being redrawn in his current style and there'll be a lot less buff guys.
Women are probably cuter though.
Damn Jotaro looks awesome there
>Lisa Lisa tho
don't get me wrong, i like the current artstyle as much as anyone else.
i'd just like a return to swoljo.
>Johnny with Jonathan-tier chest muscles and tiny limp legs
i'm talking about big exaggerated muscles like in the 80's, anon.
Battle Tendency of course, only because it should be radically different from part two aside from the pillar men. But I'd rather we get a new Jojo versus Kars/Dio fusion or something.
No I know, it's so fucking obvious once i seen Jonathan pull out the Holy Body I knew we Pillar man. But still stuffs different from the original universe so I just want to know how it happened.
>They can turn into stone for periods of time(he wasn't being subtle)
Doesnt matter to me the anon above said if you could see a retelling of a story in the SBR universe what would it be. I'd prefer a battle tendency retelling. But I'd want something different more than Battle Tendency 2.0
Original Asker here.
I ask what you (the other anons) wanted to see reimagined in the Alternate Universe. If Anon wants to see something along the lines of Battle Tendency it doesn't mean that it'll go exactly like it, just that it borrows some elements.
It doesn't even have to have the spin / hamon or anything, at least that's what I think he meant?
He was already dead once Giorno came to him. Giorno reviving him only allowed him to postpone his inevitable death a little longer which is why you see Bruno losing his senses.
requesting an edit of them saying "nice meme" instead of "good job"
Buccellati's spirit was leaving his body as Giorno tried to heal him. His spirit was able to stay in the copse and control it for as long as the body was intact. For some reson some of the body works (Like talking, seeing, hearing) but other's don't like the nervous & circulatory systems. But just go with it. The body is a corpse but he can still talk, see and hear cause fuck you, it's Araki, that's why.
So over the following 4 days the body slowly rotted and was falling apart from every wound he received. During the fight with Secco he burst his eardrums and lost his sight. At this point he was basically a soul trapped in a dead shell being carried around by Doppio.
Then their soul's got swapped, requiem died, and Buccellati chose to free his soul rather than go back to rotting corpse. It was his time to pass on anyway and he did all he could.
But are we getting character DLC?
Honestly, I desperately want execution members from Part 5 like Nero, Dio's sons, Planktonfu, Hot Pants, and shit, I just want to go full Body horror as Santana.
Forgot to alternate
Cool, thanks for explaining. I figured it had to do with his spirit not being ready to leave, since he appears as a ghost behind Gio for a second before he goes back in his body
No problem. And the thing about Part 5 is obviously that it's all about escaping fate. So it wasn't that he wasn't ready to leave, he was just trapped, unknowing, by Gold Experience inside the body.
So Joseph Joestar's knockers are supposed to be testicles and that time Esidisi said he wanted to fill JoJo up with his hot bodily fluids... And that time that Dio put himself inside JoJo and commented on how JoJo feels on the inside... Is Japan trying to make me gay?
I was bored so I made a textless. Would buy immediately
I've been looking for a way to contact the RedBubble artist to ask if he could put up one without text (since mine has a bunch of jpg artifacts) but I don't see an option, anyone know how?
He couldn't see stands, though.
Jojo does have other paranormal phenomena besides the stand users, like the vampires, yokai, ghosts, and phone bugs. It's entirely possible that he's a legitimate lmao.
>I NEED TO KNOW
WHOSE YOUR MAIN?
I finally broke down and read part 5 instead of waiting for rescanlation that will never happen ever.
I feel stupid, part 5 was fucking awesome. Best collection of stand battles in the series, there was like 3 shitty fights and the rest were great.
No. The brain in JoJo's can turn you into a vampire and turn you into a snail.
I'm pretty sure his mom's story about him believing he's an alien is the truth and either he physically transformed because it or he manifested a stand power.
I would read it on my phone at work and got to the part where the group
lands on the beach and is near Doppiothen Batoto shat itself and lost all the chapters and I can't find what page I was on anymore. I could barely follow the fights because the scans are so ass.
That would be neat. I would love that.
As for EDs, maybe these two. A bit downbeat, but they fit with the threat of criminal Stand users messing things up for Josuke and friends:
it just makes me think Araki's original idea for Bites The Dust was way crazier than what we got.
It would be nice if The world over Heaven ends up sending josuke to the past, finally fixing that issue.
The most likely option, no arguments.
One minute and 30 seconds of Rohan as the faggot in the video, lying on his bed, fixedly staring at the "camera".
He was probably just some random nice guy delinquent whose pompadour got messed up by the weather to look like that. He might have resembled Josuke because Josuke's mom wanted her rescuer to resemble Joseph to some extent.
Noticed something while I was re-reading JJL for the heck of it.
Does Araki ever will reuse stuff besides for flashbacks and those small icons when people referring to something?
I know no one probably cares
But I was messing around with photoshop and found a way to get a clearer version, probably not a huge difference though
Checked with photoshop and it was slightly offand needed rotating/scaling but its clearly the same drawing, heck the darn crosshtaches are the same, it might just be traced or scaled up
start from part 1 and go in order, deal with what you get, parts 4 and 6 are fully translated in colour.
read on batoto and watch wherever you download anime from if you care to.
I just realized Johnny getting his arm chopped off during the fight with Valentine was probably a reference to Joseph
I don't know man
>Read Parts 1-2
>Then watch the first season of the 2012 anime (Covers Part 1 & 2)
>Read Part 3
>Watch the 1993 OVA for Part 3
>Read Parts 4-8
Save second & third season of the 2012 anime for a rainy day. It's great because of how faithful it is, but I wouldn't recommend watching it immediately after/before reading Part 3 due to it's length. Wait a while then watch it.
Nah, I stick with what I said. I actually prefer the 2012 anime over the OVA overall, but like I said, you probably won't enjoy the anime that much if you're watching it immediately after finishing Part 3. It's better to wait a bit I think.
Perhaps that image...
Was referring to my post.
They're 33/52 done, if we go 3 a day then we're only going to hit 42 by the release day.
I assume they're going to go by 4s or 5s now.
>I generally prefer reading manga
Read through the manga then. If you like it go back and check out the anime adaptations. It's not worth worrying too much about specific orders.
Wheelchair Polnareffor Gorgeous Irene
What the fuck is he wearing anyway?
>Those DIO costumes
That shit's tight.
I messed up somehow. This was the second Weather link.
>The announcer does a little MUDA MUDA MUDA
He's too cute.
Ok if he erases time how can he do anything? If he does anything in that time wouldn't it all be erased and nothing happen?
Time can't just not be there, so how can he erase it?
Kars got hit by a meteor which propelled him back to earth. Since he was unaffected by time and the reset he managed to stay the same and the impact with the meteor reinfused him with superpowers. The collision of Kars and the earth caused a massive destruction akin to when the dinosaurs went extinct which served as a physical reset of the universe on earth.
Stands as a whole make enough sense.
>why did the mom's stand go away but not jojo's after DIO died?
Apparently I never gave this much thought. No clue, but I'll try and guess. DIO having a stand forced all the Joestars to have stands too, but they can be acquired through other means like by birth or the arrow. The biggest requirement is just that you have a strong will. Getting rid of DIO would stop the stand from forcing itself upon Holly but for those like Jotaro who could clearly handle a stand, it would remain.
That, or it's as simple as Jotaro already having a stand. When he got turned into a little kid by Alessi he still had a stand which would suggest he always had one, right? It just happened to manifest after Enya stuck it in DIO.
My guess is that DIO getting a stand awakened all the other Joestar stands. When he was defeated the stands went back to "sleep". But Jotaro and Joseph have strong enough will to wake up their stands whenever they want now.
Like how Josuke was original dying from his stand, but when he got older he could call it out at will.
Fits DIO very well.
Where's the shirtless Shadow DIO? Are they hiding costumes from us as well as DHAs?
> watch the Hermes video
Thanks for reminding me again FF is nowhere to be seen.
I made this image years ago, I went searching for it and found it to be used in numerous places concerning this discussion.
Reminder that pure grapplefags have to act like nothing else work to feel relevant because they can't handle the fact that the ground is the worst place to be.
>But the Gracies-
The older one know this and it makes them all that more dangerous. Sport BJJ is a fucking cancer.
Also Brazil =/= Italy, huehuehuehuehuehue.
What I don't get is that although the bullet goes past, why isn't there a bullet wound if that's what WOULD have happened in skipped time alongside the bullet's progress from point A to B which is still there?
Because when King Crimson activates his abilities, Diavalo is pretty much shunted out of the normal time stream, for all intensive purposes, Diavalo no longer exists for those five seconds, yet he can move around and reposition himself and such, but he can't interact with anything, it's why he didn't attack anyone while time skipped (as far as I remember) So the bullet can't hit what isn't there, but continues on it's route.
Also, if any anons happen to find or have my other "comics" I would like to re-collect them, just out of personal curiosity, since I ended up deleting them all a while ago. I think I did another King Crimson one, a Gold Experience Requiem one, D4C and Heavy Weather.
Did he do that? I couldn't remember. I think it's the easiest way to explain his ability, and any inconsistencies being chalked up as Araki not really being sure how he works either, at least thats my stance. King Crimson is just a big ol barrel of fish.
>I will finally be able to see Highway Star animated

I'm so hype for P4 PV that I can barely sleep properly these days and keep missing meals.

That climax with Bites the Dust
i hate this retarded attitude that the guy is such a key plot element that was dropped and araki is a shitty writer because of it and blah blah blah
the guy wasn't his own character. he was merely a representation of the city of Morioh itself, where people help each other just because it's the right thing to do. he was intentionally left vague because the point is, it doesn't matter who he was, he was just body for the golden heart of morioh to reside in
>"Hey, have you heard that they're making a new season? Who do you think the guy in the pomp is? I think he's Jotaro's son. What will the story be, though? Dio is dead, maybe the villain is the Death 13 baby but grown up."
It's almost cute.
When the fuck does Bruno pull this one out? I finally got around to playing ASB, and this stupid pose had me falling out of my chair laughing.

hey Doc, have you gotten a chance to do costume references for these folks yet?
also anyone got the imgur album link to the full costume references album?

First time we see Act 4
Josuke imagining how seeing Yasuho again will be like.
They should have gotten Capcom to make Heritage to the Future 2 with nearly every part 3 character plus the part 2 ones from the concept art playable to cash in on the anime instead of handling it to CC2 again whose resume consists of fucking yearly Narutu rehashes and made ASB a mediocre fighter at best.
Fuck CC2, SE also has them working on the FFVII remake and it shows.
Srsly guys, I would love to read some sort of JoJo fanfic with Trump as enemy. His could be infusing rage into nearby people and make them attack your target or summoning biggest foe of your target (or some stupid shit like this).
I don't even have to think about the stand name...
Yeah. That works.
Or if they want to pick something reaaaaaaaaaally popular that came out during the same year Part 4 is set in, well, there's this:
I was hoping it was going to look just as stupid in context. Oh well, thanks a lot anon.
I forgot how goddamned weird Soft Machine is. Covering a ship with an identical, deflated ship was a plot twist I never saw coming. Not in a million years.
So this was my background for the last couple months as a enjoyed parts 1 through 7 with pace. Now that I've caught up I feel like I need a new background for inspiration. I mean I could just keep it.
>am I popular yet?
I was familiar with it because of the "Wrryyyy" meme flying around at the time just never went into it until my friend told me to watch the show.
I took in his suggestion, but decided to read the manga instead. I later went back to the show(only some of part 2 was done) after I got finished part 4.
I saw someone post this picture and I thought KC looked cool so I went to find out what it was from.
Tokyopop groupsin 2006 or 2007.
Just finished a full reread / catch up a few weeks ago. Kind of funny how the part I avoided so long ago (SBR) would come to be my favourite.
I knew Jonathan had to die because of Dio since I knew beforehand that DIO stole Jonathan's body like the filthy Gains Goblin he is, but I wasn't expecting it to be as tragic as it was.
Reading Steel Ball Run again next week after finals are done. Anything else western-styled that you guys can add to the list?
That's the worst part about King Crimson. Everyone has their exact way that they picture his time ability that's almost indescribable to other people. That's why it just works.
Considering i was totally fresh, really surprised he died 9 eps into the anime
Jonathan was too pure for this world
Do you feel Jean had a good life?
He went through the most shit other than Jotaro and got it worse than him. He even lost his body and his beloved Stand.
At least he gets to live his remaining days as one of the highest-ranking members of the most powerful gang in Italy, and Coco Jumbo will probably live pretty long.
considering every character trailer we've had so far has had a unique theme that fit them, yup! Either that or there's like 51 stages but the former's a fuck ton more plausible.
It's difficult to pick just one, each part has its own charm points.
"How many breads have you eaten?"
>Diamond is Unbreakable
Josuke gambling with Rohan, but Koichi's romance is a close second.
The epilogue wrapped it up so perfectly, I'm tempted to say that, but Doppio's death hit like a truck.
So far, the Gaurd Westwood fight.
He had one of the worst lives out of all the characters, although he also had some good times inbetween. I hope he managed to see Jotaro and Joseph again post Vento Aureo, he suffered way too much just to be isolated forever with Giorno and co, even if they took good care of him.
So which one of you anons has a stand to cause people to have reading comprehension?
>best friend dies saving him twice
>dog dies saving him
>never see other friends again
>loses eye and legs
>stuck forever in turtle
>turtle has no bathroom
>home land over run by muslims
When will it end?
That's actually pretty fucking solid yo.
I personally believe that Araki really did just fucking forget, but this is still a good and valid interpretation.
Honestly, even if it was meant to be time traveling Josuke, you'd still be right.
>Decides to contact Jotaro after the universal reset
>Had looked his number up previously but he was never home
>"Hello? ... No, I'm Irene, no one named Jotaro lives here. Yes, I'm sure. Hey, dad, do you know if someone named Jotaro used to live here?"
Polnareff wouldn't be a cripple in the new universe and he'd stop the Paris attacks with Rohan
I'll get started on it now.
So did this character confirm that Ireneverse =/= SBRverse? Because only dead characters were replaced and Josuke was presumably still alive during MiH.
In fact, Part 8 takes place in Morio-cho and we haven't seen a single resident from the old universe counterpart there yet. Ireneverse and SBRverse have been confirmed different for a long time now.
