Reposting from last thread.
Vol. 25 updated
Remember that Narancia loves none of you fags. He's dead, but even if he wasn't, he'd be sipping wine while being taught basic math by hot bitches, which he would later fuck. Let him live in peace.
What was her problem, anyway? They were all risking their lives for her, did she really have to act like such an asshole?
Nothing really came of it either, I was expecting her to do something smart like use herself as a shield when she figured out that La Squadra wanted her alive, but we got nothing till Spice Girl.
Narancia wouldn't need Fugo anymore, he'd have top tier Italian bitches by his side. He'd be living the good life in his private villa, no Fugo needed.
Fuck you fucker, you're only holding him back. Free Narancia from the chains of your phony gay love.
Never he loves me fucker don't you get that?
He would only get annoyed if he had a girlfriend but every second he spends with me is absolute bliss.
Narancia's taken too many dicks in juvie to be anything but a cockmongling buttfiend
Fuck you fucker he is pure he has and will only ever love me.
Reminder that Fugo did nothing wrong and Buccellati never held any hard feelings towards him.
Fuck you he deserves nothing but the best.
I will lead a war against anyone who says otherwise.
I will end those who insult Narancia.
Why were most of the characters in PHF such fucking cunts or idiots or both?
>Giorno's a sociopathic asshole who forces his men to murder at gunpoint rather than using his people-skills
>Giorno disrespects Buccellati respecting Fugo's decision to leave, as well as Fugo's own consent
>Sale and Zucherro are treated like dogshit in spite of never doing anything that bad
>Fugo and Abbacchio are apparently child-murderers
>Buccellati's some sort of buffoon who didn't know what his men got up to behind his back
Most overrated thing about the series to me by far, it had its moments but it was filled with pointlessly edgy and silly crap.
Any speculation on when the Part 5 anime teaser will come out? I was hoping it'd be at the end of Part 4.
Aerosmith is currently flying to your location to bomb the shit out of you.
They shouldn't considering it has the cutest character in the entire series in it.
You can't cause you'll be dead fucker.
>>Fugo and Abbacchio are apparently child-murderers
this fucking bit messed me up a little, I knew they were no saints but holy shit
I like PHF mostly because of Fugo, I feel like he was handled well in it and I've always enjoyed the character, so seeing more of him is nice.
The antagonists are okay too.
>animeonly dudebros crying anywhere they can on the internet in response to the taste of a liar scene
Why didn't Araki keep this clothing of Fugo? He looks way better with something under his current clothes.
It's stupid and actively a step backwards for every character other than Fugo is the issue. Abbacchio gets turned into an irredeemable monster, Buccellati's a moron who didn't know how sick his own men were, Mista's a mindless drone of Giorno, Giorno turns into a worse person instead of a better one...
The best way of appreciating it is to keep the good bits and ignore the retarded shit, I think. The antagonists were definitely good like you said, and the fights weren't bad either.
They'll watch to see how ugly he is compared to Narancia.
They are not fantasies but real realities.
BT had enough big strong muscle men like DBZ so normies would feel secure about their sexuality. VA will be the tipping point for manime fags because the main cast dress like male strippers and there's only one female in the entire arc.
Before you celebrate its 100% guaranteed the tumblr anime fanbase will increase ten fold, it will then double if a SO anime drops.
I really doubt that. There isn't any more recognition of it than there is of any of the other non-canon light novels, right?
Frankly I hope it doesn't get animated. While it's good that Fugo became more interesting, throwing all the other characters personalities and developments in the shitter isn't worth it.
Me and Narancia had a wonderful Christmas together.
Part 5 fights when animated are gonna be the hypest shit
>Bruno dragging Proscuitto on the outside of the moving train
>Giorno's 7 page Muda
>The entirety of the White Album fight
Fuck i'm excited
He is alive fucker.
Santa brought him for me.
I even got to chose the color.
No-one said or thought that the crew were completely innocent, but they always held the moral highground over their enemies. There was a reason Buccellati picked the men he did, and that's because all of them knew where to draw the line.
It just makes some things completely inconsistent, too. In-canon, Mista holds his fire when an apparently-innocent old man gets in the way of his bullets, PHF Mista would've shot right through him without a second thought.
What are you guys watching now that Part 4 is over ?
I need to fill the JoJo void in my life.

I wonder how GioGio 2: Golden Heart Golden Ring compares to it, considering it even got acknowledged by Araki around it's release.
I just like really like Fugo, even if PHF is sort of weird he really makes it worth it.
My and Narancia are going to have a white Christmas tonight.

This is actually the first time I've heard of this.
Good then. Keep him warm and safe.
I sure will he'll be perfectly fine with me.
Orange it is my favorite after all.
Imagine you're some teenage girl enjoying being a teenage girl and living a normal teenage girl life. Pretty fun, right? Now imagine a bunch of shitty magical mobsters force you to follow them because the dad you never knew wants to see you, and you don't even know what he looks like or what his name is. No wonder she's sour about the whole situation.
Oh, I didn't remember that part.
Well, I hope we get more Fugo novels for the 30th anniversary.
Remember that the Light Novels are not canon and they are to be treated as such.
>full of pointless edge
Remember emo DIO being tsundere for Jonathan in Over Heaven ?
Remember Kira killing Lisa Lisa and dancing with her legless torso in Jorge Joestar ?
Again: not canon. The spin-offs that aren't written by Araki seem to love bastardizing his characters (except Fugo, not that he had much to begin with).
I was re-reading part 1 the other day and holy shit. It is hilarious.
Living a normal teenage girl life is regularly shit, but acting like an unlikable cunt to the shitty magical mobsters risking life and limb to protect you isn't going to make it any better.
Hell, being doted on by a bunch of handsome and exotic men is a pretty common fantasy, I'm surprised she wasn't into it.
Yeah I know, but it's real pain to see characters you like being horrendously misrepresented.
To be fair, I could entirely see Kira dancing with a legless corpse since he's pretty much a necrophile anyway.
Remember Jonathan throwing an anvil at a zombie rapist and then going "oops wasn't me" ?
Remember Dio playing with Jonathan's arteries like a baby with a new toy ?
Or Speedwagon failing to walk on water ?
Honestly, I love Part 1 partially because it's so silly, and it's unintentionally silly unlike Part 2.
I still can't help but chuckle at that stupid "Luck = Pluck" pun even if the scene is supposed to be emotional.
It's very cheesy.
The real horrible thing about Kira in that story is that the author decided to turn him into a spin user, then somehow he managed to charge a rope with spin then detonate it like an explosive (somehow) because Made in Heaven was active.
that is why PHF is the best one.
>Remember that cunt that fucked off
>lets make him less of a cunt and fuck back on
I wonder when we will get the rohan OVAs, or IF we will get the rohan OVAs.
I just feel like if we get one OVA they will be more keen to do PHF.
I never could tell if Araki meant to make part 1 funny or not.
its so over the top but played so straight. Part 2 was definitely purposeful, but part 1 I honestly cant tell.
Araki has a great sense of humor, and i cant help but think that he made the series funnier since part 1.
>oh shit people think part 1 was funny.
>i better roll with it and make the series funny.
How do you think I felt reading Over Heaven ?
I mean, fuck, even people who don't like DIO agree the book is just a horrendous misinterpretation of his character.
And I guess you could make the argument that Kira is a necrophile who does overdramatic and gross shit like giving his victim her boyfriend's earrings with his ears still attached, but "dancing with a legless and still alive corpse" is just an embarassing attempt to be edgy that lacks any comedic value, and is not even shocking or original.
ah yes, of course
>not keeping components of your luger inside a nice block of Gouda cheese
>legless and still alive corpse
Wait, so is she dead or is she not? There's a pretty big distinction between the two, you can't have a 'still alive corpse' unless it's something like Buccellati.
Agreed though, nearly all the light novels seem to suffer from embarrassing attempts to be edgy.
The most horrendous thing about Kira's representation is that there is too much woman attached to his girlfriend.
I mean im pretty sure a legless corpse is still a no go for Kira.
Hell im pretty sure an elbow still registers as a fat chick to him.
I think he just went for a mix of both after he realized he didn't want to write something completely serious (which is mostly at the beginning).
One of the more charming things about 80s horror movies is that they can be both legitimately scary and also hilarious at once, depending on how you view a certain scene. There's always a mix of camp and tension that permits this kind of reaction, and Araki seems to understand that.
I mean, it's impossible that he didn't write Part 1 without realizing how silly some of the things were and just decided to roll with it. Araki has likely consumed so many cheesy horror and action movies that their campy language just flows in his blood even when he's trying to tell a serious, epic story (which he is more than capable of doing). It's part of why I like Part 1 so much.
>Abbacchio gets turned into an irredeemable monster
I mean, he wanted to be ordered around without having to think about the consequences, so him killing a kid doesn't seem completely out of character.
Not to mention they're fucking mobsters. Giorno was overly idealistic and didn't realize what he was signing up for. Not to mention, noble intentions or not, Giorno is a ruthless fucker. Son of DIO and all.
Wow, sounds like things are going to suck hard for the next 2 years or so until part 7 and best president attempts to rape a 14 year old while bragging about how America is the best.
I'm just glad I got my serial killer David Bowie animated.
How would you feel if you were part of the crew and some young nigga you met seconds ago started talking about how you got sum golden heart and shitz when you used to be a highshool delinquent? i would be like, woah, ease up kid, i met you today
Nigger if PHF gets animated before DMQ, which is both written and illustrated by Araki, I'll have a Sheer Heart Attack
I don't know, she doesn't look too dead to me here.
The only amusing thing about Jorge Joestar Kira is that the reason he obsesses over Lisa Lisa (he even starts calling himself Kira Kira) is because she supposedly looks like Mona Lisa.
That's pretty funny.
>Majority of scenes in OP involve transitions of things changing in an instant but it flows so you wouldn't think anything of it
>Episode following his reveal is a half minute longer with unseen scenes with Diavolo enacting KC in between the scenes, all of them tinted red when it happens.

I want the hour of my life I spent looking at the pictures on the website back
It kinda does, in spite of his issues Abbacchio still had the same wish for justice that he'd always had, as his dead partner observed. And the reason Abbacchio cared about Buccellati in particular is because he respected him as a human being, not just because he was mindlessly following orders. If he was completely fixated just on doing what he was told then he'd have stayed behind with Fugo.
And although the others are mobsters they all display morality in various ways. Mista holds his fire when Prosciutto disguises himself as an innocent, Narancia's disgusted by La Squadra trying to kidnap and use Trish, Buccellati genuinely cares about random civilians and keeping them safe, etc. They're not perfect people, but they're also not nearly as bad or as ruthless as some make them out to be.
On the contrary, an armless corpse would be a no-go for him. Not that I'd blame him. I'd fuck Lisa Lisa's hands and I don't even have a fetish.
Fuck you fucker that is not Narancia that is a women Narancia only loves me fucker got that get that through your dense fucking skull before I bash it in fucker never talk to me or Narancia ever again fucker.
He's a salaryman who only uses his stand to kill bitches and take out the trash, Also because Araki realized how fucked Kira's powers really are when he commented on the fact he could have just turned the air itself into a bomb, which is where the idea for Stray Cat came from.
If he could learn the same bullet trick as Crazy Diamond he'd be fucking unstoppable. But as someone who utterly despises conflict, he wouldn't. Even still, when he actually puts his mind to it, he almost killed fucking Josuke.
So which explanations do you think will come back up?
It is a women because you censored the nipple.
Now get away form me and Narancia.
>It's like The World, but it happens so fast that not even Diavolo can see it
>its a good thing I got that A in thermodynamics class before going to prison
Stop stealing the pictures me and Narancia take when we make love.
He only loves me fucker now leave.
We can share him (her) if you want!
Call him a super retard
>An A in thermodynamics
>When I could look inside my fridge at my fucking salad dressing to learn about this shit
I'm not saying that it's not an incredibly clever trick (as are most win buttons in Jojo), but most people could understand how that shit works.
He is only mine fucker he will never love anyone else.
He wouldn't even get 100 ft near you.
Actually, that makes a bit of sense. Time is accelerated, which means a rope snapping would happen much faster, creating greater force. Add the fucking Golden Rotation to that shit and you've got a bomb because all of that energy has to go somewhere after the circuit is broken.
I hate it when Araki goes with the old "I tricked you with a reflection/refraction" shtick. He does it quite a bit.

part 5 anime when
give me a rough estimate
i paused reading the manga halfway through part 5 because i wanted more animated goodness
i couldn't tell what the fuck was happening in the non-colored p5 fights because shit looked so messy
Nope you're a ghost now. Hey, look behind you.
Fuck you and your quads fucker.
Narancia will never die again.
All I see is my darling Narancia looking at me.
Part of me believes Kira has some kind of inherent gay hand detector since he's so autistic and obsessed with hands he'd be able to tell whether it came from a guy or a girl.
So you'd have to paint the nails and spray some perfume on it at least
At what rate are the hardcover English books coming out?
I need to start buying them, I heard they are just starting Part 3,
Yummy yummy yummy in Formaggios tummy
No he isn't.
I don't think so, Narancia's REALLY girly-looking and most JoJo characters are pretty androgynous anyway. It's not like Narancia's going to have pic related.
Painting the nails or spraying it with perfume might make him suspicious though, unless you did it subtly and tastefully. Would he even actually care, though? It's the hands themselves he's turned on by, not the fact that they came from women.
No he isn't fucker he will never die again.
He is not a ghost I used Carnefag's and other shitposters' souls to bring him back to life.
Kira's not gay so he'd only get a boner from girl's hands. Or hands that were at least feminine in appearance to the extent that he couldn't tell the difference.
He's not attracted to men, but he's not attracted to women either. The only thing he's into is a specific body-part which both sexes have, so I doubt he'd get too anal about trap-hands.
Looking at his freaky goblin ass I have a hard time believing those hands would be feminine enough for Kira
I mean just look. Would you get a boner from those?
Fuck you he only loves me.
Take Doppio instead.
His entire existence is based on being fuckin cute.
I just did though fucker.
>Dio goes Tetsuo
I want to read it so bad.
This is The End of JoJo.
evidently somebody would, speaking of!
Let's all take turns describing various horrible ways Narancia could die.
Narancia, gagged and crying after having his limbs amputated so that he could be sold in an especially deviant sex trafficking ring, feeling the box he's in grow increasingly warmer as he will soon be incinerated in the back furnace, as he was too hideous to fetch any buyers.
This isn't the /ss/ thread but thanks Santa!
I finally got the courage to open it and do a pose
Fuck you fuckers Narancia and his hands are perfect I would kiss his hands all day long.
No you didn't.
Fuck you fucker.
Can you not? Shitposting about Narancia is still shitposting regardless of whether you're screeching about how you want to marry him or thinking up fucked-up guro situations.
Leave Naranciaposting to the professional.
Where were you on christmas night Naranciafag? I wanted to wish you a merry holiday.
If each Jojo part is more bizarre than the last... what the fuck will Part 9 be like? Will it be the one where Araki actually reveals himself to be an immortal vampire and declare his intent to conquer the world?
You were a fool to attack me. I have disowned my weakness, in favor of life ever lasting.
You are hiding behind the curtain like Polonius, and like Polonius, it is there that you shall meet your end.
My ban expired at 9pm today sorry man.
Merry Christmas hope you had a good one.
Anime onlyfag here. You don't even want to know how gay I'm prepared to get.
>My ban expired at 9pm today
So it was a Christmas miracle after all. Even God hates Narancia
I can't believe there are people that report you.
Narancia posting is what these threads need the most
Fuck you fucker.
I still posted in time for Christmas.
I know hopefully my post will soon make them see the error of their ways.
Probably none. You don't engage in sex with your minions if you want them to respect and fear you (unless it's rape, which isn't a good thing to do if you want minions around).
He probably just teased some of them with the promise of hot vampire cock if they killed the Joestars for him.
>Part 1 is Jonathan
>The final blow is dealt by Jonathan
>Part 2 is Joseph
>The final blow is dealt by Joseph

>The final blow is dealt by Jotaro
Kakyoin, Polnareff, N'Doul, Vanilla Ice, Oingo and Rubber Soul (demanding the both of them to disguise as Jonathan), Mariah and Midler.
Maybe Phantom Blood Dio would have made some rape dungeons for himself and his minions if he lived a little bit longer.
To be fair, the last fight with Kira was a team effort.
>Rohan discovered who he really was
>Hayato saved everyone's asses
>Josuke did the most of the damage and work
>Jotaro and Koichi were Kira's last nail to his coffin.
Araki has a complex where he hates the idea of a villain ever getting anything close to a happy ending, so he makes sure they all die or worse. It's inevitable a villain will lose, the question is how.
It makes sense in the story. Josuke had only killed a rat thus far.
Jotaro clearly shows signs of PTSD after Stardust Crusaders.
Jotaro is a murderer. His kills were justified, but it doesn't change the fact that he took the lives of other people.
He cares about the Duwang Gang, despite only saying so out loud about Koichi, and only doing so in the stopped time.
He killed Kira so none of the kids would have to pop their murder cherries.
Part 1 has a 1 on 1 encounter and Part 7 has like 50 v 4
you are also forgetting that the villains are able to send slews of minions after the heroes throughout the entire journey
While I agree with most of this, is it fair to call Jotaro a murderer? All of the people he killed attacked him first and wouldn't have stopped if he'd begged for his life. In some cases (like Anubis and Midler, though he didn't kill her) he actually did so and they kept going. Wouldn't it fall under self-defense and not murder?
just how much pot does Akiri smoke on a daily basis
>read Part 5

Were Parts 5 and 6 supposed to feel like complete opposites?
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little Stand User? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Speedwagon Foundation, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on DIO's Army, and I have over 300 confirmed RETIRED's. I am trained in orangutan warfare and I’m the top puncher in the entire Stardust Crusaders. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with stealing the body of my great grandfather so you could get cheap easy gainz? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my grandfather to smash a Polaroid camera to reveal your location, and your castle is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your World. You’re fucking dead, vampire. I can be anywhere, anytime thanks to Star Platinum's The World, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my Stand's bare fists. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire funds of the Speedwagon Foundation and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "WRYY" was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and your debt can't be paid back with money, you goddamn idiot. I will ORA fury all over you and you will drown in it. You really pissed me off, kiddo.
>Didn't like Hermes
What in face did you just fucking say about my hair, you little bitch ? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in Morioh high school, and I’ve been involved in numerous fights with Stand users, and I have a fresh underwear from New Year's Eve. I am trained in Stand warfare and I’m Higashikata fucking Josuke. You are nothing to me but wood, stupid . I will restore you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before. As we speak I am contacting the Speedwagon Foundation and your secret sex affairs are being investigated right now so you better prepare to have your spaghetti fixed, maggot. You have no dignity, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime over 60 km/h, and I can fix you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with Crazy Diamond. Not only do I know the secret Joestar technique, but I have access to the majority of Stand users in Duwang and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of this city. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “啊” was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and you can't escape now, you super retard. I will Dorarararara all over you and you will drown in it. You’re getting a feeling so complicated, kiddo
Stands work under the principle of if a user tries hard enough they can become that Stand too, right?
Why didn't Iggy just turn into sand?
Why didn't Avdol just turn into fire?
Why didn't Kakyoin just turn into slime?
Why didn't Polnareff just turn into metal?
Why didn't Joseph just turn into hermit purples?
Why didn't Jotaro just turn into a fist?
I dunno, mileage varies a lot. I loved Hermes and Annasui too, and Weather became really interesting with the reveal of his backstory.
Overall I'd say that 5 handled side-characters better, and that 6 had a better and deeper overarching story and main hero/villain.
You're entitled to your opinion but I cannot condone this kind of talk.
She's not really like Okuyasu though, she's more like Polnareff than anything. She's much more cunning and rough than Oku ever was, but has Polnareff's goofiness and temper. Not to mention the surprising depth she displays with that deal with Sports Max and her sister.
I think it's her unsatisfying conclusion that's the worst thing about her, in spite of being of great importance in the Underworld and Heavy Weather fights, she was completely absent for C-Moon and didn't get to do anything much in MIH before dying.
Jotaro killed the captain, the orangutan, Rubber Soul, and he was part of the group decision to probably let ZZ starve to death.
Granted, after that, the only times any of the Crusaders killed anyone was when there was no other choice (Dio, Vanilla Ice, N'Doul).
I think Araki just realized that they weren't fighting vampires anymore and that murder was bad, about a quarter of the way into part 3.
And in universe, maybe Jotaro realized that, too, which could be why he started just beating enemy stand users within an inch of their lives instead of killing them. And why he became less of an edgelord.
>Stands work under the principle of if a user tries hard enough they can become that Stand too, right?
>People still say Stands are hamon despite Araki practically forgetting the existence of the concept and how they've exhibited reality-warping capabilities multiple times that Hamon cannot realistically perform
>Stands work under the principle of if a user tries hard enough they can become that Stand too, right?
As much as I love him and want to see him happy, Norisuke would be the best choice, considering his presence and relationship with Josuke.
Kaato and Jobin are cool too tho.
Captain Tenmile was life-or-death though, right? While he definitely died it was a split-second thing, you can't blame Jotaro for defending himself. And while Rubber Soul was badly beaten, he wasn't actually shown to be beaten to death.
Forever and ZZ are definitely sus though, Forever was actively surrendering, and who knows what happened to ZZ. Makes sense about Araki changing his tune though, the only heroes to consistently kill their foes are the gangsters in VA and Gappy, though the latter has at least some accidental kills.
Yeah he did, Jotaro caught him alive, comforted him by telling him that the wound wasn't fatal, and then freaked out when he sent Geb through his own head and told Jotaro a little about himself with his last breaths. Jotaro buried him because he recognized his worth.
People shit on Jotaro a lot but I really like him, things like this really made him seem cool.
It's not that Stands are actually Hamon, it's just that there is an established relation between the two concepts (which is really just a formality Araki had in early Part 3 to ease readers into accepting Stands). Stands are like an evolution of Hamon. There's a page in SBR that explains that the Stone Mask, Hamon and the Spin are tools that can activate a Stand.
>Joseph's Stand is Hermit Purple. I've always wanted to make pictorial visualizations of supernatural abilities since Jojo began. Stands were based on this concept just like Ripple was, so when I thought about putting Joseph back in the story, I needed to decide how I would visualize Ripple as a Stand. Ripple is life energy that travels through the entire body through a special breathing method. Therefore, a concrete visualization of it would be some sort of wire wrapped around the entire body, like a vine. If Jotaro's group time traveled to the world of Part 2, they would probably be able to see "Hermit Purple" wrapped around Joseph just like in Part 3.
What Jotaro says to Jonathan in pic related is the same thing Joseph says to Jotaro early in Part 3.
To me, it feels less like Stands are an evolution of ripple, and more like the ripple is merely one of the many ways to open the gateway to unlocking your stand, especially given the most recurring source of the stands in parts 4-6 is an arrow made of a strange space material, as opposed to something based on ripple itself.
> tfw you think all the asspullery in jojo is funny until you watch the best antagonist die in bullshit.
I dunno, Kira's life beind ended by a random abulance is pretty fitting imo given how much he liked to autofellate himself while rambling about how he's sooooo lucky and fate favors him alone.
>He got killed by something that is supposed to heal people.He got killed by Crazy Diamond beforehand too
>Stole a man's face but Kira died a faceless corpse
>A dog is the cause of his death in the afterlife even thoug he is themed around cats
>First person he murdered was Reimi,the last person he ever met was also Reimi and of course
>Dragged to who knows where by his fetish
Yeah, it's like Frollo from the Hunchback of Notre Dame constantly going on about how he's god's chosen throughout the entire movie, claiming God will smite his enemies and send them into a fiery pit, only for god to smite him and send him into a fiery pit.
Let it be known that on Christmas Day 2016, 2 days after the finale of the Diamond is Unbreakable anime adaptation, that its final OP was sung by our fine /a/utists with the final post containing quads. A fitting end for Part 4.
Goodbye, JoJo. These have truly been great days.
I love Jolyne so much. I want her to be real and I want to be one with her. I want to wake up in the middle of the night, and not feel alone because Jolyne will always be with me. I want her to berate me every time she's burdened by being attached to me, but deep down, she could never regret stitching us together because we're made for each other.

ties the SBR universe to the Original universeand is set in an American city that doesn't suck like NYC or LA.
I don't think people give the N'Doul fight nearly enough credit, it's not just one of the best in Part 3, but one of the best in the entire series too. It's a pivotal moment for Jotaro's character and the tone of Part 3. It's an emotional game changer.
On top of being such a badass Stand user, almost taking out all 5 of them from +4 miles away while being BLIND and relying on nothing but sound, N’Doul is the first time the hero gets to actually have a few minutes to talk to someone who works for DIO and listen to their reasoning for being on his side and why they made their choice. It's the first time we are presented a sympathetic reason as to why someone would join DIO besides being evil or wanting money. N’Doul is very honest and pragmatic about it - it’s not so much that it’s DIO, it could have been anyone, it could have been Jotaro- but what he means is that it’s not DIO’s cult of personality that necessarily made N'Doul stick by him, but the fact that someone gave him the chance to bring out the things in him that were always there but were disregarded or stunted.
N'Doul doesn't fear DIO the way others do, he is loyal because DIO pulled him from despair and was able to provide him with what he needed. And it shows both DIO and Jotaro have envoked entirely new feelings in N’Doul that he had never felt before. DIO gave him purpose and a reason to live, and Jotaro made him wish he could see just once (to look at the man who killed him).
It shows why some people might choose this path, how it could be an important choice, how it could be arbitrary.
It's the first time Jotaro truly acknowledges the seriousness of his mission.
And it even follows a tradition within story of the JoJo talking to an honorable enemy before they die (Jonathan and Bruford, Joseph and Wham).
It's honestly a fantastic moment.
In all honesty, I'd love it if it did take place in Detroit and it would probably be in my top 3 picks for US cities to be the setting for a JoJo part.
Its a way more interesting setting than the typical NYC/LA/Chicago.
Well said. Part 3 had its issues but people don't give credit where it's due, you can really see where 3 paved the way for everything that'd come after more than any part before or since.
I honestly wish the heroes and villains got to talk to each other more, given that nearly every time they do so it's cool as hell.
>parts 4 and 7 in color
4 really benefits from it, but hot damn i never realized they finished 7 so quickly
