Gappy likes Large Fries, but not Fried Chicken
Jobin uses Fried Chicken
Obviously its a clear pointer that he's the villain if he likes Fried Chicken, something Gappy does not like.
If that becomes something actually important and not just a joke I'll laugh my ass off
At this point I think he already has all the information he needs. I don't think Gappy would be THAT curious to know all the details of his past selves, he already has enough information on the both of them and how they got into this fruity mess.
>Vampire mask came from Aztec Vampiric cult
>Mexicans worships DIO
>Donald J. Trump (the J stands for Joestar)
>The Wall is a musical reference AND a thing being made real
We're living Part 9 and we don't even know it
Has there BEEN a political drama Jojo part yet? SBRverse Senator Joestar dealing with Stand-using lobbyists and rivals in his party, as he forms a coalition to rise the ranks and take on the evil-Stand using President.
i found this outta nowhere
so i guess you waifufags can have a bump and a new background
They sort of touched on that already with Lucy's subplot in SBR. While Johnny and Gyro were doing the questing and fighting, Lucy was the man on the inside doing stuff like disguising herself, passing along information, etc.
The fuck did I just watch?
i'll admit the Mighty Putty one got me though
I'm trying to put together a list of real people that are named or referenced in JoJo, besides musicians and fashion designers. So far, I got
>Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger (Araki's basis for muscle characters and Jonathan/Dio)
>Hugh Hudson (referenced in Jonathan and Dio's academy)
>David Cronenberg (referenced in Dio's whiskey)
>Dario Argento (Dario's name)
>Salvador Dali (basis for Zeppeli's mustache)
>Michael Berryman (J.Geil's design)
>Johnny Depp (by Joshu in Part 8)
>Jean Gabin (Joseph's favorite actor)
>Aida Mitsuo (after~all)
Anyone has any quotes or profiles or something that can help me put this list together ?
Any references I'm missing ? I'm trying to get it all listed in one spot.
I'd really appreciate if someone could help.
How often do you reread the parts? Which part have you reread the most?
Takes about a month for the latest CD to be released I think. Next month will be eps 25, 26, and 27, so 5 more months total til they're all released, then I'd give it an extra month on top of that for it to all be torrentable in high quality and subbed. June?
Google says June 28th for the complete thing since that's when the Rohan OVA (that you get for buying all the BDs) is supposed to come out. So yeah July at the most.
4 times already and planning to reread it again when the re-translation is done.
and JJL about 2 times, I haven't reread any other part yet.
Time is just whenever I feel like it.
The animation for DiU is so shit, did they changed animation studio after Stardust Crusaders? I mean Stardust Crusaders wasn't top quality but it wasn't as bad and they corrected some stuff in the Bluray.
I'm 8 episodes into JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and this is incredibly boring; it's not even good shonen.
When are the stands introduced? I've been told that they're what makes JoJo great, so I'll just skip to there.
Here's a new wicked reaction image dot png
its a little shit but im limited to what i can do
>"There's one reason you lost, Joubin"
>"One, simple reason..."
>"I don't like fried chicken"
Part 3. Also the manga has been running for 30 years, the first couple of years are kind of mediocre and it takes a while to actually get good but once it does it keeps getting better.
Oh holy shit I think I know of a way that could work out: What if he uses Cream Starter to disguise himself as Josuke but Yasuho catches him eating fried chicken
Cream Starter is a bound stand. It outlives the user, possibly by more than a century, and the last person to have it was Johnny Joestar, whose possessions were left with the Higashikata family
Not really, each Part is self contained for the most part, though it builds off of Part 1 a bit. I'd recommend watching one more episode of season 1 though, it's the final episode of Part 1 and you're already so close. Be aware that the anime for Part 3 is kind of dragged out in places, and it has less structure in it's story and is more a vessel for showing off weird powers and the journey being just as important as the destination. If you're still not enjoying it I'd recommend the manga since the anime isn't as good but if that doesn't do it for you then I don't know if this is the series for you.
Just know that while Part 3 is an improvement over the first two it's not a gargantuan leap in quality, though it has it's moments. Also it was dragged out a bit in the anime. The series slowly gets better as it goes along but it isn't consistently great until around halfway through Part 4, but the Part 4 anime has the opposite issue to the Part 3 anime in that it's kind of rushed and you can tell it had a pretty small budget. If the anime isn't doing the job then definitely try the manga, when people talk about this series being good they mean the manga, the anime is more aimed at people who've already read it.
Johnny took Cream Starter that Valentine got from another HP in the stand-off to make him believe he has no ill intentions and it stayed with Johnny after Valentine died to heal his horse and Lucy. Although I might be wrong since it's been a long time since I last reread SBR
Fair enough, I might as well finish Part 1.
Alright, thanks for the warning. I don't really have the kind of free time with my job to read a ~1000 chapter series, so I'm not sure if I'll get into the manga, but I appreciate the info.
I mostly wanted to check out JoJo because I've been told repeatedly about how creative and great battles between stands are.
JoJo is meant to be read slowly since it's so fucking slow paced so you could read it a few chapters a day over a couple of months and not suffer for it. Whatever works for you I guess. Just be aware that it does improve as it goes along even after 30 years. Also have fun.
Avdol has a personality. He's very formal and calm, but is bad at hiding his emotions when things manage to make him genuinely scared/angry/embarrassed. Although he often seems very by-the-book and calculating, a few times he's notably let his emotions get the better of him, like when Polnareff was in trouble. He's got a somewhat paternal view of his companions, but isn't condescending when he's more informed about things than they are, which happens a lot.
It's not much, but it's there.
>Jobin needs to kill Josuke
>Family will get suspicious if he disappears
>Jobin needs an imposter to tie up loose ends. one who both looks like josuke and smells like him so even norisuke's stand won't know the difference
>Cream starter can create flesh masks with the scent of the original, and it lived on after Hot Pants Died
>Valentine was the last to have it , and offered to trade it to Johnny in exchange for his life
>Johnny presumably kept it and it was passed down to Noriskue
>If Jobin replaces Josuke, there's only one fatal tell that will make Yasuho realize he's been replaced
>Josuke sang about how he hates fried chicken, while Jobin loves it
I know exactly where you stole this theory from.
Now stay there.
Yes, but it's a little different. I only use it to check for news.
both of you came up with the same idea?
just fucking quit talking about him already
i hope being a dumbass pays off for you all someday
Well my copy of Ultra Jump finally arrived, so I guess it did my gap toothed friend.
I'm about fifteen chapters into Part 8, and the color scans stopped so I'm wondering where this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BMRsXr69Ew got such crisp coloring despite it not being in the later chapters
It's because it's from this official video Shueisha made to announce they were going to color part 8. The releases still haven't yet caught up to the latest panels they included in it.
Pucci isn't pure.
Do you know the release schedule for the raw colours?
That's Kira's VA isn't it? It's dated the 17th so it already happened?
>Joshu becomes the dominant personality
>Joshu becomes the main villain
>Joshu becomes the dominant personality
>Joshu suppresses Jobin's scheming and murderous desires, saving everyone from the threat he poses
>He never fucking shuts up about this and what a hero it makes him
For my Italian bros, this just happened.
Yes memes have gone too far.
Friendly reminder that Bites the Dust was actually invincible if it were implanted in anyone besides Hayato, who happened to be the only non-stand user on earth who knew Kira's identity at the time.
Friendly reminder that if Kira succeeded in pressing the switch after turning the nurse into the bomb, she would have no memory of Kira's identity because only he remembers resets that he triggers, and because she can't see stands, she'd never be able to figure out what was going on, no matter how many times time reset.
Is it just me or dolomite looks like he has a fried chicken as his arms and legs?
Unfortunately. Why didn't he just use Bites the Dust on Reimi? He could have rewound time an hour and came back to life. You know, instead of trying to force her to turn around and trapping himself in that alleyway forever.
Kira doing jack shit to Reimi to get himself out of there is the equivalent of Dio kicking with his bad leg or Kars not flying away until the asspull hand grab him
In short, early Araki kinda sucks at killing off villains.
>He needs to be in very dire straits in order to activate Bites The Dust
Nigger he was dead. You don't get more dire than that. Literally.
Among JoJo villains? Possibly, although Diavolo is a strong contender for that title.
Among all villains? Not even close. Voldemort is more retarded and less likable, for instance.
>there's nothing to suggest a grown medical professional wouldn't
1) She can't see stands
2) She doesn't know who Kira Yoshikage is
3) She can't see stands
Hayato was the only person who could fight Kira as the bomb carrier since he was the only one who knew Kira's identity.
>because he realized the upsides of existing in that state
And hadn't yet realized the downsides of being trapped in an alleyway where you can't turn around for all eternity. Maybe some of that head trauma transferred to his spirit.
1. Hayato can't see stands.
2. Hayato didn't know who Kira Yoshikage was either.
3. Hayato can't see stands.
Kira managed to blow his cover once, there's nothing to suggest he wouldn't do it again considering his track-record of repeating mistakes (overconfidence, underestimating his enemies etc).
Would Kira be trapped in the alley though? I assumed that was a Reimi-specific thing because it was right near the place where she died. And later on Kira's ghost wanders freely in DMQ, in most media it seems to be tied in to a ghosts reason to stay on Earth that decides whether it's going to haunt one spot or just wander.
>they can't spill the beans in any way or form
They don't have to. Bites the Dust can trigger from questions alone. They don't even have to be direct. Asking about Kira's identity in any fashion triggers the bomb.
>2. Hayato didn't know who Kira Yoshikage was either.
Read the manga my dude. Or watch the anime. Kira literally tells him his name multiple times. Because he's a dumb ass.
>Would Kira be trapped in the alley though?
I assume so, otherwise why the fuck would Reimi have stayed there for 15 years if she was free to roam around town?
Also Kira only gets out after getting dragged away by the hands.
Oh, come on, I'm sure you know what I mean. Kira has just been living his quiet life and has no prior experience with other stand users or any sort of adversity, but Diavolo should have known better.
Hayato Kawajiri did not know who Yoshikage Kira was when Yoshikage Kira implanted Bites The Dust into him. Note my use of past tense there - Hayato CAN'T see stands and Hayato DIDN'T know who Kira was obviously implies that the latter isn't current. Which puts him at an even level with the Nurse you're insisting could never, ever cause trouble for Kira for some reason.
You're also ignoring that we don't know how the BTD loop would have worked, because the circumstances were completely different from the first time Kira gained and used the ability. The first time, Kira used it on a subject who was fucking dead among other things, you can't claim that him telling the Nurse all of his details was irrelevant because she wouldn't remember it.
Reimi was murdered there, that's a common thing for ghosts to have to stick by their place of death.
And like I said, if the ghosts had different reasons for staying (Reimi stayed because she was desperate for closure and justice, Kira stayed because he was a little bitch) its possible that the rules behind them are different too. Mainly cause I doubt that Reimi would have turned down the chance to taunt Kira with the knowledge that no matter what he was going to be trapped there just like he'd done to her if that was the case.
Kira told Shigechi his name, address, age, bedtime routines etc, went out of his way to torment and torture Koichi when he knew he was being pursued, and taunted Jotaro while he was down. Getting overconfident and saying his name isn't remotely out of character for him.
Not to mention how fate works with BTD - because he'd already told Hayato his identity once, it was bound to repeat, and his triumph over cheating death again made him more enthusiastic about saying it.
>I cannot allow any of my men to do this job!
Diavolo leaves his basement for the first time in 99 years and gets utterly BTFO. Why is the outside world so cruel?
>the most unlikable
>the most retarded
Don't shit on David Bowie you faggot
What's there to like about Pucci? I don't even fucking remember his personality, if he wasn't a black gay priest I wouldn't remember him at all.
Pucci felt like a minor antagonist sent by Dio.
Are you fucking retarded? He's one of the most loved JoJo villains.
>implying Diavolo isn't retarded
Literally the only unique thing about Diavolo is how mentally damaged he is
i hope this is bait
With all the respect in the world, you sound like you speedread the part. You don't have to like him or Stone Ocean, but it really sounds as though stuff flew completely over your head if you don't remember anything about him and spout absolute fallacies like him being nothing but one of DIO's minions.
It's a pretty good fix as far as that design goes, never expected them to remove the dent.
Too bad Kira wasn't retouched in any of the footage that we have at the moment.
Who's that on the phone and why are they calling Jobin their mom?
You don't have to like Pucci or Stone Ocean but he was easily the most involved main villain in the series and his goals were completely divorced from DIO's, just using DIO's plan as a scapegoat for all his guilt and self loathing.
Do people just forget that in the second half of Stone Ocean Pucci doesn't seem to give much of a fuck about DIO? He's talking about his love for him so much in the first half then right before he fuses with the Green Baby he verbatim says "DIO, I'll revive you and use your ability for my own benefit". And then after that whenever he talks to DIO's sons he says that their bloodline, Joestars and DIO included, exists only to push him higher towards heaven. Dude was always self interested first and foremost and we find out why in his and Weather's flashback.
Why act like a flimsy red herring for two years, who has zero control over the situation despite clearly not winging the whole thing, I really don't buy that.
Never expected for the main antagonist to be completely transparent but that's honestly kinda disappointing.
Did he just fill awkward around Damo and didn't want to do anything or participate? Because after his death, he goes full: "Alright, chicken man here is how are we taking this faggot down, don't tell my dad"
Is Araki writing the a part "as shit goes along" style? Did flashback man even exist?
It seems clear he's actually planned 8 out a fair bit to me. And I doubt we know everything about Jobin yet, the past 3 villains he's done we don't know what their actual deal is until near the end. I doubt he's transparent like you're claiming. He had an agreement with Damo and they were equals and given it was someone from his own family killing all Damo's friends Damo probably wasn't impressed with how Jobin handled the situation and didn't want him involved if he actually does care about his family given how Damo was treating them. Give it time, JoJo arcs only really come together near the end, we're missing so much crucial detail at the moment and we won't have those details for a while yet.
Guys, a famous citron juice company in Italy used this as an official ad.
No it doesn't, read again. There are 3 ways of triggering Bites the Dust.
>Hayato Kawajiri did not know who Yoshikage Kira was when Yoshikage Kira implanted Bites The Dust into him
Yes he did. Or at least he knew that he was a serial killer, which for the purpose of this argument is basically the same thing. He knew Kira was a bad guy before getting implanted, so even after time reset he still knew he had to defeat him. Ergo, he knew his identity.
>you can't claim that him telling the Nurse all of his details was irrelevant because she wouldn't remember it
But she wouldn't. The only reason Kira doesn't remember subsequent loops is because they're automatic. Like how he doesn't know what SHA is up to because it's an automatic stand.
>I doubt he's transparent like you're claiming
Misunderstood me. I'm claiming the exact opposite. Jobin is anything but a transparent. He's the least transparent (possible) antagonist so far. Even now as he arranges attack on Josuke and looks for fruits and has ties to seemingly every defeated rock men that was presented thus far you still can't be sure 100% that it's him.
My problem it's that this built up transparency will result in nothingness if he blows his load in next arcs and just reveal himself as an antagonist, which I'm sure where this whole plant appraisal thing is going.
It's on their official Facebook page. Search it if you want
Are they trying to advertise that the drink gives you schizophrenia?
Will this become the 7up meme for spaghettiniggers?
why are JoJo videos so fucking lazy and dumb
>Steal a video or a scene from a movie
>Put JoJo characters on it
And i can see Kiras OST is the new overused meme
>he's undoubtedly like Valentine and Pucci
No, he's nothing like them.
Valentines introduction in Tusk was already where it was basically revealed that he was behind the race, he was masterminding Steel and had an agenda beyond the race itself to get corpse, he had it all planed out from the beginning and then someone drops "Mr. President" and then he sends a stand user that later on tires to kill Gyro and Johnny, Just from that chapter alone, he already has 99% of being a main bad, is pretty apparent.
Same case with Pucci, at the end of Foo Fighters he basically stands there with Whitesnake (the stand that BTFO Jotaro and clearly wants the current macguffin) and rambles about how he shouldn't have left her alive. Okay, maybe that's not enough, maybe he's a pawn, right, but too bad that Marilyn Manson is the next ark where it's revealed that not only he creates and sends stand users to kill Jolyne, Hermes and FF but also apparently has no one above him and just acts alone.
None of them had anything like Jobin boy here had, he has been almost none threat, bystander, his introduction reveals nothing that qualifies him in the same manner that Pucci's and Valentines did. Only now, two years after his introduction, he sort of, kind of starts to take the lead and the initiative.
If it's him, he will be the most illusive out of all jojo antagonist rooster.
>the part five spanish translations were miles better than the english ones
Did we read the same scans? The spanish P5 is just a translation of the old english scans, and sometimes it's even more confusing
Yeah Pucci sucks. /jojo/ seems to actually be gay though so they defend him to the death even though there isn't a single interesting thing about the character and he's driven by retcons and stupid meme dialogue (muh prime numbers).
Pretty easily one of the worst villains. Worst one imo but I could see the argument that Kars is weaker.
I think Araki is making Jobin as passive and as slippery as possible.
Take the end of the beetle fight, he makes Gappy's nose bleeds out of nowhere and had the tissue thing. Araki made it as hidden as possible what that tissue was going to do. The fact Jobin doesn't chase Gappy and just leaves Gappy even though Joshu is saying to get him. He's well aware he's being as passive and slippery as possible. I think Norisuke is the only thing stopping Jobin, whatever Norisuke is holding on Jobin -More than the fruit parlor- is holding him.
This was a good point actually about Damo and Jobins relationship. I really think we will be due a flashback that ties Jobin, Damo and maybe Kaato together.
I wonder considering Aishou if Jobin's going higher idea was implanted by Damo and Co.
Has there ever been inspired bait in these threads?
> You might not like Pucci, but sure as hell he's better than fucing Diavolo or Kars. Even Dio is not that great as a villain
Not that anon, but I think you're basically going on as much personal opinion/subjectivity as the other guy is.
>We have to finish him now or else everyone except that lady is gonna get blown up!
What did he mean by this?
Let's create some stands, shall we?

I come bringing a prophecy.
Gappy will die fighting the main villain, but be resurrected with his Stand's new ability [Show Must Go On]. Gappy continues dying and reviving in his fight against the villain until, finally, Gappy kills the villain. It is at this point that [Show Must Go On] deactivates, leaving Gappy to die and be mourned by Yasuho and the survivors of the Higashikata family.
It's what Araki wanted his name to be but for some reason (probably their fucking kanji) editor read it incorrectly and here we go, he's Noriaki now. He was writing him as Tenmei outside of speech bubbles still, like in the hotel during Justice ark, he signs as Tenmei.
Jojonium 12 has the story.
It was the editor who interpreted the reading of the name differently.
Araki said he kept it when the group signed the book during the justice arc.
Jojonium Vol 11
>Even though Kakyoin is the only Japanese in Part 3 besides Jotaro, I wasn’t specifically particular about his nationality. What was most of note was his name. I always think of both the first and last names together as a set. His last name, "Kakyoin", I took from a place in my hometown of Sendai. It’s a place that I always passed through on my way to Sendai Station so it’s a name of a place very dear to me. And so, I made 典明 (Note: Kakyoin’s first name which can be read as either Noriaki or Tenmei) the first name to go along with Kakyoin as a last name. Officially, it has become "Noriaki", but I’ve always called him "Tenmei". Actually, I left this reading of his name as a signature in Enya’s hotel guest book. I made the main character’s name 'Kujo Jotaro’ so I gave Kakyoin his name after I pondered how it will sound and the proper balance of the characters in his name but… my editor made "Noriaki" go off on a journey with the Joestar troupe. When I saw that his name was different in the comics, I was a little surprised, but I guess this is like when a kid gets his friends to call him "Noriaki" even though his parents named him 'Tenmei.'
I love that this name thing makes complete sense with Kakyoin's character.
He doesn't want to be the loner he used to be, so he introduces himself with a new name to differentiate himself from his old self.
honestly if Jobin is the main antagonist, he's pretty fucking shit at his role
>Knows he can't confront the Jojo one on one
>Worst thing he's done is be a member of the fruit mafia and give a guy a nosebleed
>Stand is a bicycle version of King Crimson and not really flashy or intimidating
The only thing he's got going for him is his looks.
Ive only reread steel ball run, twice so far. I'm relatively new though I only caught up earlier this month.
They outsourced bits of it to some Korean studio. Plus they don't have as much budget as stardust crusaders, I think because DiU is less popular and they mismanaged it during SC.
I know people usually cite ambulance as some weird theme of Part 4 where Araki didn't want Josuke to kill anyone, but I feel like it's often forgotten that he murdered Yoshihiro in cold blood like ten minutes before that.
And the whole fates worse than death, kind of a dick move
at least in Teru's case.
Yeah, it's my problem with him too.
Most importantly, he was't violent, cruel or threatening at all, up until this point, sure, he's going all out, he doesn't care anymore, pic related, since he indirectly approves murder Josuke and pretty much anyone, if necessary, he starts to move a lot more into the "antagonist" territory.
Probably will be killing Yasuho by the end of 2017 but boi, did he have a long way "meeeh, whatever Josuke, whatever" leading up to this. Feels like Araki's trying to beat Valentine in terms of "did nothing wrong" aspect with Jobin. I swear to god, in the end it's going to be all becasue he wated to save Tsurugi isn't it.
I barely do it desu
If I re-read/watch something its manly just a small portion/section of the story and never the whole thing
