Wammu never deserved his fate.
I wish he was alive again, so he could be redeemed and treated as some sort of Piccolo, or much-better Vegeta. He could've been an amazing trainer who would've studied every martial art, mastered hamon, or even discovered the Stands much earlier than Dio, educating the JoJo bloodline if they proved worthy enough to train.

Although this would've been amazing, his weakness to sunlight would probably have put a stick in his ability to be any sort of traveling partner, Araki could've probably asspulled something though

>>152459930
Gundam X's openings changed alongside the new Gundam debuts.

Gintama's openings in the last season sometimes had small variations depending on the episode or arc (It had happened before too, but I think the last season was the one with the most variations, although often they were very small, like a single shot).

god damn right

>>152453804
This trope when done right can be pretty fucking awesome, like when Gon finally meets up with Pitou again. Hunter X Hunter even reversed the "side-characters buying time for the main hero to arrive" by having Gon be the one, stewing in his anger, waiting to wreck Pitou, who's trying to save an innocent life.
>>

HxH reversed a lot of shonen tropes, to the point where it became the establishing point for a lot of new tropes

>Good guys are getting their shit absolutely wrecked by the villain and his crew
>Villain's about to kill someone and the protag makes his triumphant return and effortlessly and wordless beats a bunch of the henchmen

When the climax leads in with that opening in the background
