Did we use to live in a universe where Jojo wasn't a hit? I've been browsing the internet and 4chan for years and I never remembered hearing a thing about Jojo until about two years ago. All of a sudden it was one of the longest running, best selling cultural phenomenons with a lot of memes behind it. Is it because of the anime or is this like the Mandela Effect?
If you don't remember this old ass meme you're probably a little baby.
> I've been browsing the internet and 4chan for years and I never remembered hearing a thing about Jojo until about two years ago
>browsing 4chan for years
You're lying. It had memes and regular discussion since over a decade ago, and exploded over three years ago now.
>I've been browsing the internet for years
You want a medal or what?
It was funny because no one knew where it came from. Most people also only saw the stick version of that back then.
But yeah anime happen which made huge e-celebs cancer talk about Jojo.
Wrong. Dio throwing a steamroller on Jojo was a meme 10 years ago. And I don't mean a decade flippantly, literally 10 years ago there were memes on this website about Dio throwing a steamroller on Jojo.
It ran into quite some issues regarding localization for most of its life, so naturally it would take a major mainstream adaptation to finally enter the public eye. It's easier to watch a video online than search the Internet for translations from various sources.
I remember it but I never knew where it was from. In fact it wasn't until years after Jojo blew up in popularity that I finally put two and two together and realized this IT WAS ME, DIO meme man was from a much older ass meme.
It was always popular in Japan. It was very niche in the west. Some people knew about it, either through the manga(with its shitty meme tier translations) or through the old part three OVA.
Then it got an anime, and exploded in popularity. The people who act like it was always a big deal are either posers, or old fans finally relishing in the newfound validation.
This isn't rocket science and I don't know why I'm having to explain it to you.
or the time is just moving too fast
Jojo was really popular in japan and most of the shonen mangakas took inspiration from it's "tricky stand ability" formula.
bleach has shikai and bankai (like stands, each has a unique ability reflecting their personality)
one piece has the devil fruit, although it doesn't reflect the personality of the user, it still has that jojo esq feel of mysterious weird powers, figuring out what the person's devil fruit power is to counter it and being creative with the power to use it to it's fullest potential
many other shonen anime have clear jojo inspiration
>remember ORA ORA, TOKI WO TOMARE and WRYYY and not really caring where it came from
>play jump ultimate stars
>finally find out about jojo and dio and stardust crusaders
>still don't give a fuck
memes is what made it popular, now nobody can take this shitty manga seriously.
>that filipino milf
Who would make their mom say this?

>ur next line is jokes
>those remixes with anime and asb lines
>ora ora muda muda rerorero etc
>milf hunter cherry licker
>comments on song references by people that read the manga
DUI anime (where we are now)
>IS THIS A JOJO REFERENCE (both ironically and otherwise)
>general social media type bullshit
>everyone talking about how it's a classic despite just finding out about it
probably time slips and universes merging again, I still remember things that don't exist, yet I once had a physical object of said thing.
I still haven't watched it personally.
Genuinely thought it was some sort of yaoi series when I first saw images of it without knowing anything about the series. I think it was some old scans of the Pillar Men.
Looking back I can't really blame myself
I just reread part 6 and that pose is so fucking weird because there's no need for Pucci to do it, he wasn't using an ability or posting after delivering a beatdown, he just kinda does it. Why did he do that?
I've always been vaguely aware of its existence but only got into it last month when I blew through the anime and have been reading through the manga ever since. I'm getting close to done with SBR now. I won't pretend to have always been a fan or anything, but it's a really fantastic ride and I think it deserves the attention it's getting now. I get it might be annoying to see normies spouting memes about it but I'm glad it's at least getting recognition in the West now. Enough to get to collect the series in hardcover,
finally, at least.
The oldest JoJo memes are from the time Poole was still an underaged shit in SA, though most people didn't really care where did ZA WARUDO or ORAORAORA came from. Also, there was the Duwang issue, but that's another thing.
JoJo exploded thanks to the anime, the first JoJo nu-meme was KONO DIO DA, which gives you the clue as to when this fanbase started growing like cancer.
I thought the anime made it less popular. I expected it to be subbed in Duwang as it was airing, but as far as I know that didn't happen at all.
> I've been browsing the internet and 4chan for years and I never remembered hearing a thing about Jojo until about two years ago
>is this like the Mandela Effect?
you're a fucking newfag
how is it possible that you say you've been browsing 4chan for years and you've never fucking heard about Jojo?
/a/'s been talking about jojo ever since it used to have a loli board
>I've been browsing the internet and 4chan for years
As in four years at best?
>I remember when the only way to discuss jojo was to go on /vg/
If you're a filthy fucking newfag and don't remember the old /a/ threads with Shizuka and Deepfag.
Where and when do you think the DUWANG/King Crimson etc. memes started?
Za warudo was definitely a meme during the mid late 2000's.
But I'm guessing the fact that it got a 3D fighting AND it started getting adapted in 2012 did help it gain more popularity. (More so globally, since it was already popular in Japan)
>see this meme for years
>have no idea where it came from
>a friend suggests watching JJBA
>think it's going to be some kind of globe-trotting adventure following an archaeologist
>Dio turns into a vampire and goes WRYYYYYYY
>they redesigned Speed King
>Jobin is a bad guy
Let's stop saying stupid things and talk about the new chapter.
I felt my heart fucking drop when I saw Yasuho get attacked holy shit.
He's great really. Who do you think the CQC side belongs to? I'd go for Josefumi, Kira wouldn't want to ruin his hands.
It really looks good.
So, now Gappy's basically fucked, who can help him? Kyo is the only one I can think of, pick him up with her stand and rush away from the zombies. He could decide to risk it and call Norisuke, Tsurugi is fine too I guess, but I don't see him as a great option for finding people.
So this is the 3rd chapter of chase, how long do you think it'll last, considering that Araki is hammering on the fact that the city is in real danger.
Yeah that was kind of lame, probably to point out how dangerous the abilty is.
It'll look more coherent when the fight will be over.
Will we get a true chase? There's Gappy on a bike as in now, I wouldn't exclude that he already knows how to ride a motorbike, there's Norisuke with the one in the garage, Kyo with Born This Way and Jobin has been shown driving numerous times. The cards are there.
You stupid young memester fuck.
If it wasn't for the anime, people like you wouldn't know about it. Which I guess would be better than what we have right now.
I lost count of the number of times I tried to shill Jojo when it was just a manga and people refused to read it because it looked too weird. So fuck off with your Mandella Effect bullshit.
I don't understand that last panel. Is he implying he's going after his brother next since he wrongly thinks he's the common link?
Uh Jobin, breaking Yasuho's phone isn't going to do much when its a fucking Stand ability, she can just get another one. Don't count on her not just pulling the ground data out of her ass when she wakes up either, her stand kind of does that.
Normalfags bandwagon effect because of the anime. The memes were always there, but the saturation of it expanded because of it.
This is fact.
I only ever knew jojo from this dumb fucking meme.
Somebody mentioned it here and I started reading the series. Some years later the anime came out and I realized some people had been waiting for decades, so it was overall a great experience.
Then everyone started talking jojo. Oh well
The moment she said "huh, hot?" I got fucking goosebumps. Goddamn.
>I'd go for Josefumi
Of course Josefumi. Do you not remember him ORAORA'ing one of the twins with his own leg?
Yeah well that wasn't really a technique in the proper sense, but he is indeed physical.
Notice how Praisley Park design changed a bit, she doesn't have the JUST hairline anymore.
Also Speed King has spikes now.
I knew that steamroller thing and I heard about JoJo, but didn't know anything, except it had masks that made Vampires or something.
I never really realized how old and big JoJo is, I filed it with "other shounene stuff I didn't read yet" and put it into the same category as Bleach, HxH etc.
Wasn't until I read the SC manga that I finally realized where that steamroller was from. I only read JoJo because of the animu, glad I did.
Why does this guy in part 6 look like King Crimson?
I'm guessing this is the designated JoJo thread?
Anyway, finally got back and read the chapter. Seeing Speed King again was great, as well as Paisley Park being used. I'm jealous of all the future fans who will have the luxury of binge-reading JJL, the wait is so hard!
The 40 pages make the waiting all worth it
And just think: those future fans will have to suffer the wait of monthly part 9 chapters with us
I used to see the TOKI WO TOMARE meme more than a decade ago, but I hadn't read Jojo yet and kept ignoring it.
Now that I know Jojo and some Japanese grammar, it's so fucking obvious that it's TOKI YO TOMARE. Toki wo tomare isn't even grammatically correct. How could anyone get it wrong back then? Fucking weebs who can't even get their shitty memes right, I swear.
He's a 21st schizoid man but not for the reasons you listed. Schizoid personality disorder is basically a disorder characterized by cutting off social contact and wanting to be alone while having a rich inner fantasy world, Diavolo hits all these points.
What if Josefumi is the alternate version of Josuke 4, but in this dimension his mom did not sleep with Jonathan but with Jotaro
I meant why doest he, typo
Yea but WHY what are his motives for killing gappy? He was butthurt when gappy killed damo and doest want his dad to know about the fruit that could cure his son. Why is he hiding all of this?
He might be hiding the fruit because the equivalent exchange could fuck up his son. His motive for killing Gappy is to get the grafted Rokkasomething fruit and get back at him for killing his business partners.
What if David was kind enough to show us Josuke with his hair down?
>You lived to see David desecrate your favorite part even down to the iconic volume covers.
There is no rest from this hell.
>Baby's first MAD binge-watching
>Thought gif was an indie fighting game series.
Vocaloidvideos about Road Rollers were everywhere.
>Thought 'WRRRYYYY' was supposed to be the sound of the machine.
>Every time I would pass by a rodarolla I had to scream it.
>I had to scream WRRYY.
My autism was strong back then.
Jojo has one of the most obnoxious, underage fanbases in existence, and they shit up unrelated threads with their ebik facebook memes.
Every new crossboarder that ends up frequenting the cancerous generals here will further drag down board quality.
>Dio fucked numerous party girls with Jonathan's body, Jonathan's body offering no resistance
>Joseph impregnated countless women on his global adventures
>Jotaro mated with starfish to attain his PhD
>Josuke only wants pure love with a nice girl
>Giorno condones prostitution and likes to give public handies
>Jolyne regularly cucks Anasui and masturbates to Tom Cruise
>Johnny had daily threesomes at the height of his fame, enjoyed eating fruit off his wife's naked body following SBR
>Gappy is the MC of Araki's idea of a harem romcom, will get insta-boners if given marginal female attention
They're all depraved.
>TFW first heard of it because of
Dragonball Z Abriged
Please end me
Joseph also got fucked by his grandson.

>taking doyjaaans for canon
Fujoshits like pic related enjoy having Josuke do a lot of depraved shit, anon. I won't have any of that.
I only heard of it in very niche talks and i don't think it was even on /a/, it was /co/ or something.
Never read it until the anime started
I have also been going to this shithole since 2006
Everyone who spent any time on 4chan should have known about in 2006 due to all the wryyyy spam. Normalfags knew it too because of some games around that time.
Anyone on /a/ that wasn't a newfag would have known about it since the beginning of 4chan
JoJo has always been an integral part of /a/ culture, with or without the anime.
Gappy's bubble shield collapsed as soon as some blood splattered on it. Shiza's bubbles shot sun lasers at people.
