Does anyone else like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure? I started watching the Diamond Is Unbreakable when it first started and absolutely adored it, decided to jump right into the manga and take a break from /a/ until I finished it to avoid spoilers. Part seven is probably one of the best pieces of graphic fiction I've ever read, honestly. Part 8 seems like its shaping up nicely too.
What's the general consensus /a/ ?
Yeah I only just noticed that there's actually general threads. Kind of surprising, I would have figured the mods would have shut those down instantly but I guess they love the series just as much. Good to know /a/ still has decent taste.
>What's the general consensus /a/ ?
Stopped liking it as much since it's popularity blew up and the fan base became cancer.
the manga is still GOAT, no matter what happens
here to complain about giogio
Giogio is literally plain greek yogurt (joke intended haha)
All jokes aside, each Jojo has a personality like here
Jonathan - noble gentle giant who wants to protect what is good
Joseph - prankster goofball who wants to protect world for grandad's sake
Jotaro - family tree shit again, but an edgelord that at least has some depth
josuke - like father like son, but highschooler that makes friends
Johnny - wants to redeem himself in his father's eyes and learn to literally walk again
now tell me about Giogio besides him having the answer to every fucking problem
he's just "oh yea the answer is x" abbachio replies "FUCK YOU DUMB MOTHER FUCKER STEP OUT OF LINE I WILL CUT YOU" and bruno is like "yea its x"
(I skipped part 6, yea but I'm gonna be reading it soon, but from what I heard Jolyne has some depth.)
>inb4 fuck you skip part retard!!!!
I like Gio. He's a very kind and introverted boy, he has a goal and is the driving force of the narrative. Not to speak of his numerous thematic parallels to both Jonathan and Dio.
I'm super tired so I'm not gonna write a huge paragraph for you so I hope this is enough.
Also, read Stone Ocean, it's good.
During the break for part 3, I read all of part 3 and 4, watched the anime then tried to pick up part 5. A quarter of the way in, it was too boring but I had a friend who recommended reading part 7 and said it was completely different so dont feel guilty. Read part 7, fell in love and just recently found time to finish up part 5 actually. It's only a matter of time before I read part 6
Giorno, put simply, is what Dio would have been if Dio wasn't a huge dick. Giorno has that same ambition for power, to rise to the top. But he also has the Joestar spirit in him, as he wants to take over Passione to make it a force for good, and is also caring for his friends. But if you piss him off, he'll make you eat a gun or get MUDA MUDA MUDA'd for 7 pages. He's easily one of the Jojos with the most ambition, tied maybe with Johnny and his quest to get the Holy Corpse.
>stop talking about anime on the anime board
Have some spook for your time
I think it's time to admit that some of the fanbase has gotten pretty bad. You see people RP'ing the characters and saying
"I'M LITERALLY JOTARO" and they overall just have an unhealthy Chrischan-esque obsession with the franchise.
It's the same kind of obnoxious crowd that runs anything popular into the ground. Certainly the following JoJo already has dwarfs however many newcomers can jump in so I'm not worried. They'll drop off around the time SO is animated anyway.
