Probably the best JoJo anime adaptation so far, I like it more than the adaptations of the previous parts.
How would Jolyne react to meeting Dio in person?
Speaking of which
Fly me to the moon would be the best ED for it, at least for the final cour
Probe me wrong
So really, what kind of main antagonist should we expect in JJL? It can't be another Dio, because we had two Diegos in SBR. Possibly another take on Yoshikage Kira? It wouldn't be another version of the Pillar Men, because BT had a more masculine art style and plot setting to suit that.
Why didn't Kira just replant BtD in Hayato after Josuke found him?
>I'm not fugo fucker
Exactly what Fugo would say, you conniving mafioso!
Part 1 and 2 were definitely better adaptations. They actually improved from the manga, whereas 3 and 4 are both worse than their manga counterparts. 4 is still definitely better than 3, but I would say that it is, in part, just because the source material is better than it is with the other parts.
Why didnt Josuke just burn down Hayato's house?
Yeah I really love some of the later pages like this one.
NIgga there is no antagonist. the villian is teh curse and it will end with Gappy cursing it.
Don't blame Fugo for that, blame the fujoshits. Or in this case, should I say the
I'd disagree here, I think part 1 and 2 were better in the anime mostly because the source material was just decent at best. I think the part 4 adaptation has been the best one so far, sure there's been some QUALITY but overall the liberties they've taken have been really well done and all the additions they've added in such as small things like the Morioh-cho radio just scream how much passion they had for the part.
They could've chosen not to animate part 4 since it's less popular than part 3 by quite a bit yet even with their lower budget the part 4 anime feels more enjoyable. Of course thanks to the source material but even then changes like Cinderella's switch or July 15th were actual improvements over the manga.
I think you mean Ruler Red, friend.
I bet King Crimson smiled when he slammed those thick iron bars through narancia's body or rather his current body. I bet for the first time ever he was not angry but content and joyful as Narancia slid down those bars slick with blood.
If you would like to make a call, please hangup and try again...
wrong Narancia jobbed super hard to King Crimson
Reminder that Diavolo got what he deserved
Kira kills 48+ women a dog and a few other random people and gets to live peacefully as a ghost detective
>Diavolo sells some kids some drugs and kills some street urchins turned mafia thugs and dies forever
I'd fuck doppio. No homo
What a shame :((((
stop shilling this fucking picture and return to trash.
Your Husbando cant even do basic math
No not really, he was FATED to die on those poles.
He tortured a guy and sucks at math. Also dresses like a fag and blew up a street causing hundreds of thousands in property damage.
Also he's responsible for your prolific shitposting record.
Part 7 Dio is easily his best incarnation.
>not posting the coloured version.
>the result is smaller than one of the numbers multiplied
Fugo was completely justified in stabbing him in the cheek with a fork. That's grade 3 math.
I like the liberties they took with DiU, and I could even be convinced that the anime of DiU is better than that of BT and PB, but I still think that BT and PB are better adaptations just for how much they improve on the source material, even if it isn't that hard to improve on the source material to begin with. The DiU anime is not as good as the manga, despite some improvements, but BT and PB anime are at least as good if not better than they are in the manga, and for that, I think they are better adaptations.
Bites the Dust can beat them all. It is the strongest stand in all of JoJo.
Maybe you should check into a psych-ward as you are clearly delusional
To each their own, the overall improvements they made in the anime for part 4 has made me like it just a bit more than the manga. Reserving my full judgements on it when we reach the last episode, but with how amazing BTD 1 was I'm already beginning to accept that the part 4 anime is DP's best work so far. It's no longer a slideshow-fest like Part 1 and 2 and they've improved a lot on overall direction and things that matter more to me like OST and tone.
Though maybe I'm a bit biased because even in the anime I didn't find part 1 to be all that great, it was enjoyable sure but nothing too special in my eyes. Part 2 on the other hand was a blast but was dragged down by the source material itself. Part 3 had the worst pacing and the wasting of budget didn't help at all, but part 4 feels like a great middleground between the good parts of part 3 and part 2.
Can it though? Maybe if you took it from the person it was implanted in, but once it's trigger you're done.
Actually, I have a long list of questions. What would happen if King Crimson erased the moment BtD explodes? What would happen if GER reset BtD "to zero"?
Post yfw the last part Araki has planned is essentially a re-telling of Eyes of Heaven
>tfw the remix is better than the original
All of the main villians stand interacting would cause some gigantic fuckery. its hard to say.
This episode was fucking perfect, the OST usage was god-tier, it had the same nice style and direction the earlier episodes did and even better in some areas.
>The entire BTD scene where Rohan got destroyed and Hayato's fucking scream with us seeing the explosion/BTD effect from his perspective.
Where were you when DP ACTUALLY saved their budget for the finale to make it the best part of part 4?
>Vitamin C has some of the dopest art and fight.
>Speedking looks like a serial killer as a stand
>Wham Incarnate as a automatic stand.
>Hand based BDTH and mustard gas grenades brother stands.
Rock men have the best stands. I really hope if we get more flashbacks we see more of Vitamin C and I am a Rock doing dope shit.
Rockmen have the best stands
>KQ doesn't squat
I think they're saving that for next week.
It's because David is obsessed with things making sense. If you notice, he's not squating because he's holding the page up instead. They had to add that little touch no one cares about, it's like they're OCD with it.
>King Crimson would make it so Diavolo would explode outside of fate and thus not explode probably
But wouldn't the time loop still take place since it technically "exploded" and Diavolo just removed the part where he exploded too. Would he be sent back in time or end up stuck outside of it somehow?
As for GER, like with KC, would he set the explosion to zero, negating the time loop as well? That's what I think. Or would setting it to "zero" make BtD infinitely explode without going back in time? Would doing either remove BtD from Giorno's head?
They'll probably add the squatting scene in the next episode, and even then they nailed Killer Queen showing up in front of Rohan when he tried to call for Koichi.
That too. But I'm saying they'll save the crouching shot for next week since that's where it's most iconic. Still, kind of unnecessary for them to do that because BtD is intangible anyway.
Honestly who the fuck knows since the powers are not given strong rules and never interact with each other but I reckon the time wouldnt skip back for BtD and GER would make it so it never happened, he could make it so the bomb was never implanted by setting that action to 0 etc
They're dumb. But the subs they watched aren't the most accurate either. They say Kira used it on Hayato, triggering the 1-hour loop. When the anime shows him being pulled into it by the arrow instead.
Oh well. Pic related should clear things up, even though it "technically" didn't happen.
>Honestly who the fuck knows since the powers are not given strong rules and never interact with each other but I reckon the time wouldnt skip back for BtD
But the explosion still technically happened, Diavolo just erased himself being blown up. Maybe it's like SHA where if the bomb somehow doesn't kill the target it just resets and tries again.
GER is broken and ruins any discussion about it in respect to other stands.
Speedwagon woke up Santana, but weren't Esidisi, Wammu and Kars going to wake up soon anyway?
My guess is that KC would skip past the 'initiation' of the time loop and time wouldn't occur, since the time is literally erased.
GER would almost certainly negate the time loop, hell, it could probably negate the fact BtD activates in the first place.
>My guess is that KC would skip past the 'initiation' of the time loop and time wouldn't occur, since the time is literally erased
The problem is Diavolo only gets 10 seconds of time skip, and we don't know how long the explosion lasts. Rohan stumbled around a bit after Kira blew out his back before it decided to finish him off. So either he skips exploding and then explodes, or he skips the entire explosion and the time loop still resumes since it's the "result" of BtD.
>at the end of JoJo's run, something retcons Mr. Joestar finding the stone mask
>Dio gets imprisoned instead of becoming a meme vampire
>neither Speedwagon not the Nazis ever learn about the stone masks or the Pillar Men
>the Joestars never learn Hamon or develop Stands
>nothing ever happens in the original universe
Furthermore, and this is on an unrelated topic, shouldn't BtD work in stopped time because the explosion is entirely internal? Or at least the first part of the explosion works, then the rest of it resumes after the time stop ends.
Later, though, we see the crew get blown to pieces instantly, right? Maybe once BtD finds a target, Kira is then immediately alerted and is able to then control KQ, which would explain BtD 'talking' to Rohan before it killed him. Maybe Kira wanted to fuck around?
In any case, if it's in an instant, Diavolo can skip past getting exploded. And it's difficult to say what happens if the explosion fails to kill the target - does it try again? Does the loop not occur? Like, if BtD was used on 20th Century Boy, what would happen?
This final Kira theme is basically smug incarnate. You can see and feel his smug ass face just by listening to it.
Even without alot od DIO fuckery and such Wes and Pucci wouldve fought till the end of days.
>The fucking tense buildup, the subtle techno beats, all the metal-clashing sounds, those fucking strings.
I need to listen to the full version but this might even be better than his ASB theme, this scene was amazing.
Have they uploaded his new design onto the main website yet?
Diavolo would never be happy because he's a mentally unstable wreck. A bullet between the eyes would be the best for him.
Kira is just a cunt and should die brutally.
Pucci tried his best, but ruined everything. He should commit suicide in front of Wes.
Are mods still deleting /jojo/ threads?
also post em
Dio stole Johnathan's body and somehow one of his illegitimate kids is a protagonist? How does a 120 year sprout his seed in a woman? I know about his tricks, but the thought of being the child of a centurion is mind breaking.
>Kira is then immediately alerted and is able to then control KQ, which would explain BtD 'talking' to Rohan before it killed him
That could have just been it acting "automatically" like Highway Star. I mean, if he could take control of it then he'd know when it triggered unless the time loop wipes his memory.
>And it's difficult to say what happens if the explosion fails to kill the target - does it try again? Does the loop not occur? Like, if BtD was used on 20th Century Boy, what would happen?
No clue. We never see BtD not kill anyone until Kira dies, and even then he thinks it's worked.
Which brings me to my final question. Why the fuck didn't Kira just use BtD on Reimi and explode himself back to life by going back an hour? Ghosts can still use stands, and Killer Queen was with him until the hands pulled it apart. Am I missing something?
Not when you don't announce them as JoJo threads, but just imply it, like OP did.
>Jonathan and PB as least favorites
Kira running his big mouth has been responsible for his downfall 90% of the time. He wanted to psychologically torture the kid and was high on his own power
Also Hayato is a bullshit 90s shounen kid with an IQ of a million or some shit.
>Pucci is a man of god, he's the one to judge sins and decide Appropiate punishment
just read the stone ocean

was there a need to off the main timeline like this

The way I did it is to copy another anon's into GIMP (or your preferred program) and erase the images to leave transparency underneath
Then just paste your picks into a layer underneath and scale/erase until it's not poking into other frames. It's less effort than doing it precisely and it gets around the shit scaling you get if you adjust the size straight to the window size

I'll kill you you fucker never talk about him again take your shit taste out of here have fun sucking diavolo's dick forever whenever Giorno gers you into an never ending loop of dick sucking which is exactly what you deserve.
Made in Heaven legit ended the Universe dude
Just end the fucking universe, try to blow my head up when the universe doesn't even exist.
Oh yeah, but the guy didn't inject him with his vampiric essence, nor did he get his blood back from said vampire. The point is Joseph got DIO's blood, which has been proven to turn people into vampires. And there's never a reason why it didn't work on Joseph.
>BtD is implanted inside Pucci
>Pucci removes the BtD disk via Whitesnake
Wow that was so hard
I was trying to think of who could tackle MiH and all i came up with was:
>Pucci goes fast
>Pucci scrapes a finger print
>It speeds up Vitamin C's effect
>There is now a splattered liquid Pucci flying through the air.
Does it work?
It actually takes a while to get up enough speed to reset the universe. Bites the Dust would trigger, kill Pucci, then reset his ass to before he got MiH before killing him again. If it gets him after the universe resets, then would it re-reset the universe?
Point is there's a reason most authors avoid resetting time as a power. It makes things really fucking confusing.
, it appears that Ripple users' energy rejects vampire blood, like when Dio tried to drain Jonathan's blood while he had him frozen, but Jonathan thawed himself out with fire and then used the Ripple from within to spurt it out.
It could be the same thing with Joseph; when he was revived, he just flushed out any possible vampiric taint that could be remaining from the transfusion (not to mention, there have been occasions where the people whose blood have been drunken by Dio don't even turn into vampires or zombies at all and just stay dead - presumably because Dio doesn't WANT to transform them - like those young women Hol Horse almost trips over when updating Dio on the Joestars' movements in Cairo).
But Bites the Dust is defensive and would only trigger after Pucci hears of Kosaku Kawajiri's true identity from Hayato.
HOWEVER, Pucci wouldn't need to track down Hayato and hear shit. He can just speed up the universe and end it lmao, what would Kira even do.
>The Ghost Stories of Budogaoka High
Sounds like it's about Reimi then. Because she's a ghost and I think she used to go to their school.
Oh well. Maybe they'll do a second that's focused on the Kawajiris.
>Dio tried to drain Jonathan's blood while he had him frozen, but Jonathan thawed himself out with fire and then used the Ripple from within to spurt it out
That was his essence, not his blood. Plus you have to be conscious to use Hamon because it involves breathing techniques.
>there have been occasions where the people whose blood have been drunken by Dio don't even turn into vampires or zombies at all and just stay dead
Because they had blood taken from them but not given back. Vanilla Ice and Joseph both received DIO's blood.
See how confusing this shit is?
It's a shame Eyes of Heaven exists and already wasted the concept, because "All JoJos unite to battle God-DIO that's achieved Heaven" would be a great idea for a final arc, but alas.
That's not how this works. It's a hypothetical scenario where BtD has already been triggered and Pucci has MiH. Now the only question remains is whether or not he dies.
When Kira implants it. When someone else triggers it it apparently goes back to the "start" of that day.
And that's another thing. What would BtD's time reset look like while MiH is active? Would it only go back a second because time accelerates, or is it a fixed point like with The World?
>The only JoJo villain to actually win.
>Obliterated Jotaro and rotted his corpse into nonexistence.
>Somehow less powerful than anything.
>When Kira implants it. When someone else triggers it it apparently goes back to the "start" of that day.
No, it goes back 1 hour. Rohan blew up at 8:30 and time reset to 7:30. Kira planted it in Hayato the night before.
Jotaro could have killed him, he just chose muh daughter instead because he's an autistic retard who decided not to fly Josuke out from Morioh with him or Giorno who at that point was unbeatable with GER.
He didnt get Josuke cause his story was over and he let him live his life knowing anything coming his way he can solve.
He didnt know jack shit about Giorno because his escort didnt return to him with any information past Black Sabbath
>It's a hypothetical scenario where BtD has already been triggered and Pucci has MiH.
That's a pretty bullshit hypothetical dude, it's like saying in a hypothetical situation where D'Arby has already taken your soul there's no way you could beat him.
But Kira keeps saying Hayato would "come back" to that point, regardless of how long throughout the day before BtD triggered. It seems like coincidence that it's always an hour but the way Kira explains it makes it seem like it isn't.
Dude, it's one hour. There isn't like, argument or inference here. He explicitly states it goes back one hour and in every instance it's triggered it makes of point of showing it went back exactly one hour.
>He didnt get Josuke cause his story was over and he let him live his life knowing anything coming his way he can solve
You know what's funny? Finding out your friend who helped you kill DIO got horribly injured on one of his trips and not telling him about your uncle in Japan who can heal any injury?
>there's no way you could beat him
That's the point. We're trying to see if it's possible for him to escape with time shenanigans/resetting the universe. As well as what exactly BtD triggering would do under those conditions.
Except it doesn't. It goes back an hour when implanted in someone, like Hayato or the ambulance lady, and then it just happens to be an hour when it's actually triggered. It also brings Hayato back to the moment he wakes up, hence the start of the day. Both are equally valid interpretations you faggot.
Just Imagine if instead of SAME TYPE OF STANDU the ending was all the Jojo's killing DIO as a team.
>Jonathan starts off with a Sunlight Yellow Overdrive knocking DIO back in the air
>Joesph does a Clacker Trick or something
>Jotaro use SP to kick off the ground and ora ora's him down towards Josuke
>Josuke slugs him in the face hard into the ground
>Giorno grows a tree lifting DIO up
>Jolyne pulls him down into an Ora Ora
>Johnny shoots him with an Infinite Spin Bullet, making The World over heaven age
>Gappy steals his ability to regenerate and oras him into the middle
>All gather round and do a mass barrage of attacks as the infinite spin does its thing
>Final blow goes rightfully to Jonathan
>It's only an hour in this one scenario and just coincidentally happens to be exactly one hour every single time it's triggered.
No, anon, it's one hour.
Even if DIO stopped time and threw knives at Pucci in it, he can see in stopped time and MiH is fast enough to evade shit like that.
When Jotaro threw that harpoon at him, Pucci immediately turned his eyes at Jotaro and Jotaro made note of it.
It actually is an hour, but why does Kira say "come back" as if it's like a fixed point? What if Hayato someone didn't trigger it until 9:30, and it sent him back and hour, which would be after breakfast.
But Jotaro didn't know that Polnareff had been injured, or probably that he was even still alive. Polnareff had gone undercover after his apparent death at Diavolo's hands, and it's unclear how much (if at all) he was working with the Speedwagon Foundation at the time.
For all we know, Pol could've started investigating Diavolo on his own, gotten hurt, and then dropped off the radar. And after the Diavolo drama was finished there wasn't any healing him anymore, his body was long-dead and his soul had gone into the turtle.
I think some jap made it in Mugen recently. i found it through
one of the arcadefags
Woah, so difficult to figure out.
Because you're reading too deeply into the wording of a Japanese to English translation, probably. But also it is kind of a fixed point, Hayato came back an hour before he blew somebody up.
>citing the wiki
It's funny, because that was different before the episode changed it. It used to say between 1 hour to 1 day. Wonder how everyone got it wrong for so long. It was even an hour in the manga, if you paid attention to the clock you could tell.
I wonder what it says in the original Japanese raws.
I would, but he specifically said he was staying undercover to wait till other people investigated Diavolo because he thought that his messages would be intercepted and he wouldn't have much time after that to act, even though this doesn't actually happen and the only reason Diavolo and co figured out who and where he was is because they followed Buccellati's gang.
The writing for getting and using Polnareff in VA isn't very good.
>citing the wiki
Better than citing literally nothing like you seem to be.
Please provide evidence of Bites The Dust resetting time to any point more than an hour before it was triggered?
No, reread my post, dumbass. I'm agreeing with you. I'm just curious how everyone got it wrong before the episode clarified things. The wiki used to say "between 1 hour and 1 day" but now it's different because of the new episode.
I really hated that when reading the part. It makes no sense. Characters from previous who make a comeback are here to job (except for dio), but really, Polnareff would just call Jotaro, or Joseph, or the foundation. He'd make contact somehow. Fuck Araki for putting him in a wheelchair and shitting on him so hard.
what's your favorite part? mine is part 5. PROBLEM OFFICER ??
this post gave me testicular cancer.
Its been so long since DIO read something that he completely forgot how. The reason Pucci and him spent so much time together was because Pucci was teaching DIO how to read. They started with Dr.seuss and picture books.
personally, me gusta part 7...... kek
>yfw you realise Pucci was like 15 back then
>People focusing more on the colours and "Muh QUALITY"
Shit like this really makes me think we deserved a Berserk-tier adaptation, why are JoJofans so pretentious when it comes to the anime?
>DP doesn't follow muh headcanon colors
>"DEY RUINED PART FOUR!"
I'm of two minds about it. Sure, Polnareff lost his legs and got fucked over pretty badly, but on the other hand, Silver Chariot was completely outclassed by modern stands, both in power and versatility. Giorno created life, Buccellati unzipped stuff, Abbacchio rewound events, Narancia had a heat-seeking remote-controlled plane, Mista could change the path of his bullets among other things, Trish could soften stuff... but all Polnareff could do was variations of stabbing shit.
I still don't like the concept of Requiem stands much, but it gave Silver Chariot a really cool new form, one of the strongest and most eldritch in the series that gave both Diavolo and the heroes a lot of trouble. And while he might have been fucked pretty easily by Diavolo in the brief fight they had, it was entirely Polnareff's actions that led to Giorno's victory, he was way more instrumental in it than Jotaro was with Kira, or Joseph with DIO. Wasn't it actually him who stabbed Giorno with the arrow in the final clash? It's been a while and the scans were shit, but I'm sure I remember some panels of Turtle-Pol holding it in his mouth.
And really, one of the best things about Polnareff is how he never gives up and stays positive in spite of all the undue shit that gets heaped on him, seeing him stay resolute instead of giving up and crying for help is fitting with his character.
I agree that the white coloring in the colored manga is better than the green outfit, but people are actually focusing on this shit more than the episode itself? These are the same people that complain about "QUALITY" but don't want to buy the BDs to actually support DP's budget to make these kinds of issues less frequent.
>The DiU anime is not as good as the manga, despite some improvements, but BT and PB anime are at least as good if not better than they are in the manga, and for that, I think they are better adaptations.
Some grade school type of answer, the other guy at least gave you specific reasons why he believes his points, you're just saying it's good because it's good like bruh are you 5?
>but people are actually focusing on this shit more than the episode itself?
These are people who will complain about anything, so the more petty their complaints the better the overall product. The fact they're griping (and likely ironically) at an outfit not being the same color as in the manga and a slightly different picture of Killer Queen shows how fantastic the overall episode is.
Got really excited about last jojo diu episode. Really tempted to read manga. Should I wait 4 more weeks or start reading based manga?
Fair enough, still, it gets pretty annoying to see how nit-picky the fanbase is for this anime. Even animeonlys are more tolerable than the forced DP-hate here.
>Inb4 "Muh Davidshills?!"
Part 4's adaptation has been great for the most part, but it's had its weak spots as well. David sucks balls at animating anything that isn't close-ups and they've had to cut a couple of memorable panels. Although I suppose you can blame WB on the latter only giving them 39 episodes to work with.
I'd say wait until the anime's finished so at least part 5 will have more retranslated/rescanned chapters. Also, get out before you're spoiled newfriend, the next few weeks will be a hell of a ride.
For the lesser budget they've had to work with, I think they've done a pretty fine job. And I'd argue that even though their mid-range shots are lackluster at times, the moments that count easily overshadow the QUALITY. This episode was a pretty good example of that, and plus it showed that they've actually learned from DIO's World, as in they fucking saved the budget for the finale this time round.
I heard this had more manga chapters than Part 3, how are they doing this in 39 episodes when 3 needed like 50?
I don't think you give it enough credit. Sure there's been a couple of missteps like the dice match being shortened and Highway Star to a lesser extent not living up the hype.
But then there's stuff like Rohan's two-parter being brilliant and it getting me way more involved in arcs I didn't care much for before like the ending to Ratt-o and Shighechi's death.
i agree. seeing the same david hatefags shitting in these threads often while completely disregarding all the good shit david has done in this adaptation get's really annoying. they're like sonic fans.
>it showed that they've actually learned from DIO's World
Please don't jinx it. Episode 46 of DIO's world looked pretty solid before episode 47 happened, so I wouldn't say we're in the clear at all yet.
It was only one, but it still shouldn't have taken up more than half the episode.
Also looking back the manga chapter list, they really could've easily trimmed off like 5-10 episodes without hurting the pacing at all.
You can tell they've gotten a lot more confident with the material they're working with and are more willing to invent their own shit while still faithfully adapting the source material.
Eh, hopefully they don't fuck it up. BtD 2 is better than 1, and 10x as mindfucky.
Fair enough, we'll just have to wait until next week. If that episode's just as good as this, hopefully we're in the clear.
It's the classic mentality of these threads to completely ignore the good shit in the anime or the series itself simply because hating stuff is cool.
Already got spoiled :c, although not here. I can't decide really, while I like the art in manga I believe it lacks the action and drive the anime has. Will there be a lot of action in upcoming episodes?
I can't wait to see animeonlies react to Rohan getting btfo for the second time. On that note, I hope they ham it up when they cut to Reimi seeing him fly to heaven.
On another note, pic related makes me wish they had used a blue sky more often in part 4. I don't mind the yellow at all, but it wouldn't hurt to switch it up a bit.
>Buccellati unzipped stuff, Abbacchio rewound events, Narancia had a heat-seeking remote-controlled plane, Mista could change the path of his bullets among other things, Trish could soften stuff
You aren't really making a good point here, these sound weak as fuck on paper.
Besides Giorno, he wasn't outclassed at all. The powers of these stands aren't even that strong and don't hold a candle to much stronger and faster stands like Star Platinum and Crazy Diamond.
They are very versatile though.
Read the manga.
The anime does a decent job for the most part, but one thing it lacks is Araki's style, specifically his way of drawing really intense faces is awesome. Plus some of the humor just works better in manga format. Reading the manga might be weird after watching so much of the anime, but trust me, it's worth getting in to.
I'll never understand what Araki was thinking with Part 5 Polnareff. Why did it have to be him? You can barely even call it fanservice because he exhibits none of the charm that made people like Polnareff back in part 3 in the first place.
>Mista could change the path of his bullets among other things
Mista is basically the weakest stand user because his stand power is being really good at guns in a universe where guns are basically useless. He can't go through any fight without getting shot by his own bullets.
Every single one of those abilities were shown to be considerably more versatile and interesting than Silver chariot, and that's the most important thing in JoJo fights.
And get out of here, everyone in the crew (bar Abbacchio and arguably Narancia) had really strong stands. Buccellati could slice and dice the environment and his own body however he wanted along with being extremely strong and fast, Fugo was so OP he got moved off the team, the Sex Pistols provided excellent support and unpredictable attacks, etc etc etc. Polnareff in his prime MIGHT have been able to beat some of them, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Mista was mostly bad in one-on-one combat, but he was useful for other things. The Sex Pistols were instrumental in stuff like the train fight and Green Day where they relayed vital information and so on.
Also, they're pretty similar in effect to the Emperor, which Polnareff wasn't able to beat and nearly killed him. But yeah, overall guns in JoJo (other than Johnny's finger-bullets) aren't very good.
