The 90s. Schwarzenegger became less popular.

Ironically, Josuke is probably the most heterosexual out of all of them. He has a love interest as his main companion.

Gappy isn't a twink at all. He's pretty buff actually, it's just that Araki doesn't draw mutants and call them men anymore.

Now, Giorno? He's a twink.

Different universes. Part 6 was originally the end of the series then 6 months later Araki started Steel Ball Run as a new series, but people were confused as fuck because the two main characters were a Zeppeli and a Joestar. Most people figured it was just a reference but a few weeks later Araki brought Stands back as well. Apparently Araki considers it a completely different series if it's a different continuity, even if it still has Stands and Joestars in it. Obviously no one else thought like this because they aren't insane, and so after a few months Shonen Jump slapped JoJo's Bizarre Adventure on it to stop the confusion and for marketability and moved Araki to Ultra Jump where he can write whatever the fuck he likes. The sequel to Steel Ball Run, JoJolion, stars a character named Josuke Higashikata, just like Part 4.

Universe was reset in Part 6

After it was reset, the new universe turned out slightly different than the old one. Versions of the previous people do still exist, but they're very different in some ways.

Johnathan in first universe = Kind strong British lad
Johnathan in second universe = Horse racer with a deadly instinct

Josuke in first universe = Bancho who gets upset about his hair all the time
Josuke in second universe = Weird guy who turns out to be the fusion of two guys in a weird way, and has four testicles.
>>
>>147409198
SBR/JJL is not the reset universe from the end of part 6.
>>
>>147409246
It is though
>>
Dio looked like this in stone ocean, so I'm pretty sure Jonathan would look as muscular as Josuke in the current art style.
>>
>>147409246
>>147409276
It's neither confirmed or deconfirmed.
>>
>>147409321
Araki said that josuke is as muscular as jotaro
>>
>>147409276
It's not, the only thing that changed in Part 6 was that Pucci was gone. Made in Heaven only changes things based on who Pucci kills, did you even read Made in Heaven.

You don't have to admit it to me, I know you don't know how it works.

>>147409474
Oh, that settles it.

But this is pretty weird, now that I looked it up, Jotaro is 195 cm tall and weights 82 km, I know people with this height and weight and they look pretty thin.
>>
>>147409626
But it's impossible for MiH to create the SBRverse.
>>
>>147409028
I can't say I hate the fact that we get more Jojo, but I gotta know what was going through the head of whoever greenlit this. Part 7 made no sense in continuity with the series and nobody had any idea what the fuck was going on.
>>
>>147409743
Because Araki didn't intend it to be considered Part 7 but as a new series. Whoever his editor was that greenlit it wasn't thinking straight though. There's two completely unconnected continuities in the series now. Calling it Part 7 might be part of the confusion, since it implies it's somehow connected to the prior Parts when it isn't. Should have just called it JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run and not numbered it.

He isn't Arnold or Stallone, but "little twink"?

Made in Heaven caused the universe to become reset and return to a certain point with everyone's memories of the previous universe intact. As long as Pucci doesn't interfere, all the events occur in an identical fashion as they did in the previous universe. The only individuals that don't know about the future are those killed by Made in Heaven before the reset.

After Pucci's death, the world enters another reset that's different from the original world. In this version, Jolyne and her friends are all reborn as different individuals, while Pucci is presumed dead and everyone else remains unchanged.

SBR is in a different universe. Holly Joestar and Yoshihiro Kira had a son named Yoshikage, who exhibits traits similar to both Jotaro and Kira of the original universe. Since both Stone Ocean and Jojolion take place in 2011, they couldn't possibly be linked.

>>147410541
Do you mean for the character or the Part as a whole? Because yes to both, it's a mystery story so there's been a lot more development than other Parts but we still don't know a lot of things. It's really interesting and engrossing, I wasn't sure about Araki's renewed focus on character drama and mystery over conflict (there's still plenty of conflict, just not outright fights of exchanging blows) but it's worked really well.

>>147410850
>jotaro that high

Being serious and brooding all the time should not be associated with manliness when you are over 14, Jotaro tries to hard to be cool and is easily one of the less manly jojo
>>
>>147411105
Jotaro is still fairly masculine but Gio is actually one of the more masucline Jojos.

He's pretty ruthless, especially for a main character.
>>
>>147410850
>Gappy less manly than Joseph
Joseph is my favorite, but the guy who started the Joestar secret technique can't be one of the manliest. Put them both in the same situation, and Joseph would run away first.

>>
>>147411221
>>147411487

Unbelivable, I looked more intimidating than those guys when I used to lift seriously

I understand not wanting to draw bodybuiders anyomre, but why retcon the first jojos to be as lean as the new ones?
>>
So, is there any chance Irene is going to show up during Jojolion? Since Stone Ocean and Jojolion both take place in 2011 I presume there's a chance they'll overlap, but obviously the father Irene mentioned can't be Josefumi since he was only 20 (though araki can just retcon that)

I guess maybe she could be part of the illegitimate branch of SBR!Joseph's family, or maybe she's not even in this universe and Kaato is just this universe's Jolyne
>>
>>147411783
It's not retconning, he says he just can't draw in his old art style anymore. Phantom Blood was drawn 30 years ago so I can't blame him. Canonically they're still huge.
>>
>>147411841
The way MiH works makes it impossible for the SBRverse to be the one with Irene in it. And the counterparts don't really mean anything in SBR and JJL anyway.
>>
>>147411853
They don't need to be in the old style, just in the new one but bigger
>>
>>147411841
There's probably not going to be any Jolyne equivalent in JJL.
Also Parts 1-6 universe and SBR!Universe are two entirely separate entities.
Since it's implied that at the ending of Part 6, everything is the same except for the Part 6 crew cause Pucci killed them.

I take back what I said in >>147411562 if Araki can't draw characters more muscular than this then he is a bad artist
>>
>>147411918
I know but that's the reason Araki gave. He said himself that being unable to draw big guys like that anymore doesn't mean they were retconned.

>>147412169
The one with Irene IS the original universe, just sped up through it's cycle. The way MiH works is that only people Pucci kills are changed, including himself if he dies. SBR can't be that universe because the earliest change made is Pucci being replaced after dying. It's exactly the same as Parts 1-5 except Jotaro, Pucci and the Part 6 gang were replaced. Nothing else changed because no one else died during MiH. SBR started as it's own original series anyway, completely unconnected to JJBA despite having so many similarities.
>>
>>147412169
The events of parts 1-5 still happened in the ireneverse because of fate. Steel Ball Run and Phantom Blood have completely different plots, so the SBRverse can't be the same as the ireneverse.

No, Pucci explicitly says that if Emporio kills him, the universe will be reset and everything will be different. Hence why in the third universe none of the characters are in prison

It's the same universe in different iterations. Fate applies across all of them, the only time fate changes is from direct meddling during MiH. The only dates that changed were the ones Pucci altered after Emporio fucked his shit.
>>
>>147412519
>she was in a third universe created after the heaven universe was reset
Yeah, the "ireneverse".

>>147412519
No, Pucci explicitly says "If I die, the fate of all mankind will be altered". If he dies before Cape Canaveral, then the fate he created won't exist.

Actually, maybe it's just best to assume Kaato is this universe's Jolyne.

>>147414388
Because it gets better as it goes along and is always reinventing itself and trying out new genres rather than getting comfortable with one and staying that way like a lot of other series. If you don't want to read the rest or you're not enjoying it then don't, there's no overarching main plot and each Part is it's own story for the most part so you just take it as it is.

Yes
people will argue that each parthave new themes, and different characters, and they do, but the "feel" of the manga is pretty much the same, it IS just a shonen with several parts

>>147414615
that move he pulled out the ass once 20 years ago?

>>147414388
It's a top tier battle shonen where fights are decided through specific powers, thought, locations and plot normally advances during fights. It's themes and cast change all the time and there's plenty of unexpected and hype moments.

It's basically battle shonen formula with unique characters, style and no power level shit.

There isn't an actual ending since they're all mostly self contained with a few crossing elements. Battle Tendency just happened to give some cluster on stuff from Phantom Blood because when Araki was writing this shit back in the 80s he pitched it to the editors as something revolutionary because it was taboo to permanently kill off characters at the time, and Araki thought he'd kill off Jonathan suddenly and have his grandson pick up afterwards. He also knew he wanted DIO to come back in 3 as the conclusion to a trilogy but he didn't have any of it planned at that point. Everything after explains more and more though, Parts 4, 5 and 6 explain where Stands came from and more about what DIO was up to after getting out of the ocean and culminates in DIO's best and only friend trying to make DIO's dream a reality, which is the closest you get to an actual ending. 7 and 8 are a reboot. I'd suggest trying Part 4 since most people agree that the series really hits it's stride and becomes what it's renowned as around halfway through 4. If that's not enough to keep you hooked then I guess the series just isn't your thing.

Most japs are tiny as fuck and I have no idea how to scale up weight for characters that are taller or have more muscle. Goku is infamous for this, he supposedly weighs something like 130lb. It's stupidly unrealistic even for the DBS artstyle which came far later than the source for that figure.

i stopped reading after part 3 - i realized it wasn't getting any better after joseph
>>
>>147415610
>is battle tendency the real end of the story?
You can end there, at part 3, or at part 6. All are good enough places to stop reading if you don't feel like continuing.

>oooh so it becomes just an interest in what araki will write next?
I haven't really visited the Jojo threads that much other than when a new chapter/episode comes out, but from what I remember from a few years ago people were just interested in everything Araki, including things like Baoh for example. People just generally enjoy his writing style/art style or fights and that is pretty much the main thing that connects his works.
>>
>>147416029
Well you're not really wrong.

Joseph does get to do some stuff in part 4 though.
>>
>>147415856
In the ending of Part 6, DIO's best friend unlocks a powerful ability that speeds up time for everything except living beings. He speeds up time to the end of the universe with everyone still alive so they carry over into the next universe but with all their memories intact, so that everyone knows the future before it happens but are powerless to change it. Before he can make this permanent, he's killed which makes the universe reset except he's removed completely and no one knows the future. In this universe Part 6 never happened because he never existed and the main cast get to live happy lives, except the one who killed him since his memories remained. That's it, 1-5 happened the same it's just that 6 itself is erased to give the cast happy lives. 7 is a reboot set in an entirely different universe.

thanks anon, I ll check it! I found interesting though that, as what I understood from these threads, Araki totally left that "search of a greater power" main theme and it's focusing on more human and emotive stories. That's odd and kinda nice for a shonen
>>
>>147416311
JoJo actually switched to Seinen in Part 7 which is part of the reason, though you could tell he wanted to try some of the more character driven emotive stuff in Part 6.
>>
>>147416263
ohh that's interesting to be honest...is it 8 in the same universe of the 7?

>>147416457
Yes

>>147416311
I always thought Fate was a main theme for Parts 3-6
With Thoth and how DIO said fate intertwinned him and the Joestars. To King Crimson being totally reliant on fate, and what Pucci did with his reset universe.
I think that was dropped by Part 7 though.
>>
>>147412020
Everyone from parts 5 onwards look the same on that pic (Giorno just looks more detailed than he normally did), and old Joseph and Jotaro are looking pretty fine. I actually like that Jotaro a lot.
Really I think It's mostly Phantom Blood and Batlle Tendency characters that suffer from the new style, but I did like a Kars illustration he did (it was in an illustration with all main JoJos and villains with the Stone Masks in the background). DiU characters suffer a lot too because of their very expressive features. They usually would go all boggle eyed when scared and that kind of stuff. That Josuke's looking really weird.

You know, thinking about it now, next to Jolyne, Johnny is probably the dumbest Joestar we've had so far.

The guy didn't even know what a dinosaur was.

Araki himself would agree with you. The mind was willing at least:

"The first thing I wanted to consider when writing the characters of Kars and the Pillar Men was how they would surpass Dio. We're talking about an Ultimate Being, so you first have to consider the fact that those who put on the stone mask become vampires, thus surpassing humanity. Therefore, I had to take things up a notch to the level of gods. That's why I based the four of their appearances (including Santana) on Roman statues, Egyptian sphinxes and Japanese nio statues--to give them a strange physical beauty as godlike figures in organic form. The reason Kars' ability, the Brilliant Bone Blade, was a Light Mode was because I thought a shining blade was appropriate for a godlike technique. At the same time, I wanted to visually express to the readers that defeating Kars would be impossible.

I think the Light Mode: Brilliant Bone Blade reminded a lot of readers of Reskiniharden Saber Phenomenon from my previous work, Baoh: The Visitor. While we're not speaking of scientific development per se, there were aspects of Kars' quest to become the epitome of biological evolution that overlapped somewhat with Baoh. Visually speaking as well, as a mangaka, I really enjoyed drawing a technique where flesh and blade merge like that. In my opinion, taking those two completely different materials--flesh and blade--is something you can only do in manga. For example, the movie Terminator 2 had an enemy that could morph his arm like memory alloy into a metal spear, but that's not what I was picturing for this. The blade I wanted to draw was something more organic, more skin-like. I think I was able to convey what I wanted to because of this medium, black-and-white manga! I can freely draw things that can't even be done with Hollywood CG. Besides Kars' technique, there are several ways I feel like I'm helped out by manga as a medium. Both then and now, I never forget how thankful I am for manga."

Jolyne wasn't dumb at all. And dinosaurs weren't common knowledge back in those days, the world was a VERY different place 100 years ago.
>>
>>147418068
Were dinos even common knowlege back in the 1890s?

They're both kinda simple

Okay I get that two grown and men, one of which is always covered in soap, pressing and posing all sexy like is kinda gay. but they were bros, and isn't the best thing about bros that you can do borderline gay shit and not have to be concerned about your sexuality or have I just been gay all my life
>>

faggot

>>147418550
Not really, they just weren't academically smart. Jolyne was super compassionate but also pretty cunning when required, and Johnny was cunning as fuck and able to manipulate people but was easily manipulated himself.

I have to agree with the DiU part. I think it's unique because it really marks the beginning of araki's transition into his current style of Greek gods, but he still wanted to fuck around with fist of the north star, and that's why everything is so over the top, at least expression wise. Pic related.

Not that I really think Ireneverse and SBRverse are the same, but she if they are, Irene could well end up being Kyo's daughter instead.

Jesus, I remember missing the Ripple like hell when Araki was going on and on about golden rectangles and spirals during part 7.

Yeah that makes sense

Kyo and Irene are the same age dude, JoJolion is set in 2011 just like Stone Ocean.
