New chapter should be out today! Hoping to see more Speed King, the best stand in the series.
Can most of us agree that Killer Queen looked more gorgeous than ever before in the last 3 eps of DiU's anime?
Doppio doing nothing wrong ever
Last time I read jojo it was chapter on part 8 where some dude ran into an electric fence. I stopped reading for a while because I was confused and never bothered to re read, also because monthly releases are BORING. Now Beetle fucker's stand has a re-design? More importantly, he revealed his stand?
Yes because around that time they've finally decided to stick with the actual design instead of that aborted fetus they had for a couple of episodes
I think if we didn't see the original Speed King's original design it would have received better. We have Anon's edits of closed/smiling mouth as well as the original head last thread >>154676542
I'll parrot my previous thought that making the face plate into goggles was a big mistake.
Yausho is best girl by far.
Blue Hawaii looks so cool. Shame it was given to a muppet.
Whelp, nice knowing you.
>It can even possess flying bugs
Now that's just not fair
Well I'm glad it's finally over
Nice chapter. That baby kinda got to me a little.
Waiting for the next one is gonna be tough though because you never know what to expect when a fight has just ended. Anything could happen.
>Family members don't know the ability's true nature
Hidden abilities still confirmed, i can't fucking wait to see them.
Good chapter though, i liked:
Josuke not wanting to kill the baby
Badass Yasuho action
More Blue Hawaii
Do you think they'll go on another date after this?
>get's fucked in close combat because user is a cripple
actually i'm pretty sure that's the only weakness Blue Hawaii has, and even then that's because Dolomite fucked up trying to save a blind girl
>Josuke not wanting to kill the baby
I think Dolomite is going to get Axl RO'd for spilling his guts. Josuke or Yasuho aren't going to kill him anymore, but I don't see a character like him being allowed to live after how much mayhem he caused.
I mentioned this in a thread almost a month so lemme say it again:
>If Joubin gets rid of Norisuke he'll be the heir or Kaato would
>Burying the Rokakaka near the wall eyes with multiple fruits and seeing what would be the effects of a fused Rokakaka can offer many opportunities
>But it wont be good for business if the miracle fruit makes some other weird shit happen to you
>So theyll keep testing and fusing the Rokakaka to find a mix that eliminates the downside of equivalent exchange by taking it out entirely and only gives a positive effect
>Selling the cure for any ailments mixed with banana and strawberry in a very tangy milkshake for 300,000¥
I wasn't working on my IPS montior so I missed a couple of spots.
Here's another version.
Kyo deserves it more from a story standpoint.
Look that all the girls got to beat the antagonists because they were had some kind of connection to the story.
Karera on the Twins.
Hatto on Damo
Now Yasuho on Dolomite
Trish stabbing B.I.G.
love you a ton doc
Are you fucking acoustic? Absolutely everything is pointing towards Jobin being the antagonist. There's no way he's not at this point. Kaato-fags just want her to be the main villian because she's a hot mom, other than that theres nothing special about her that makes her main villian worthy. Also she was in jail for a while, she couldn't have been bossing the rokakaka organization.
>People still think Kaato is the main antagonist
Joshuis the mastermind, Kaato doesn't even do shit. She's not even involved in the Rokakaka.
She's just the Part 8 equivalent of Kira's Dad.
Yes, it was pretty much the ideal design.
>someone actually using my shitty edit
You have made me a happy man
>Are you fucking acoustic?
I think he's electrical anon
I know its a typo cause you're ass is probably on mobile so dont worry its just a pun amigo
Theyre always being used even the real terrible edits ive made are still floating around
She has split eyes like Josuke, and she killed that kid.
>But she couldn't have been running things she was in Prison
Did you forget the part where she had a phone hidden in her deck of cards?
Tsurugi on Aishou too.
i know >she
But the point stands.
That robot looks close to the ones Jobin was playing with too.
She got them when she left prison. I don't think she had them on the inside.
Or maybe it means Cocaine, which has a slang term: Speed.
Look at its face, cocaine probably made it look worse than it did thirty chapters ago. Speed King is an addict and it needs help.
Yasuho confirmed best girl again, glad that after being away for 2 years she's getting some great treatment. Hope her and Gappy get out of this together and happy
When we first got Speed King's at the back of Chapter 39, I didn't mind the whole "It also has other abilities" because Araki was obviously indecisive about Jobin at that point.
Now, it's just a little but silly. Cute, but silly.
Spikes pop bubbles? Maybe Yasuho is wearing as self defence from the cum bubbles like that one Garik art.
She doesn't have split eyes though. Her eye's are drawn stylized in one panel but every panel afterwards she has normal eyes. Plus she got her cards after being released.
Anyways, having killed a kid doesnt amount to jobin's
Being a rock human
Part of the organization
Secret stand abilities
Wants to kill josuke
Will kill his family and destroy morioh if need be
Active as hell throughout the past few months as he grows as a character
Plus the whole "starting at zero" monologue is totally main villian tier.
But I mean, speed king having hidden abilities kinda just makes it obvious
This chapter reminded me why I like JoJo. Fucking Araki outdid himself on that one.
Last time we saw her outside of the flashback she expressed interest in the fruit and said that when she'll be back is a secret. Clearly she's going to show up at the very end and be like alternate Diego.
I actually kinda like new design, has this goofy sort of charm to it. If it turns out Jobin is a fusion then it might be a good representation of when it fucks up since if he is one it's clearly imperfect, or at least not as smooth as Gappy's creation was.
Speed isn't slang for coke, it means amphetamines. Similar effect so it still works but I'm neurotic about stuff like that.
She's Norisuke's foil. As Josukes foil is Jobin.
Kaato is going to put the family in a state of confusion as to who's side to be on, while Jobin does the big bad stuff. It'll be much easier for the rock humans goals to be completed with Norisuke and his family not getting in the way. She's a diversion, but i feel like over time there will be more to her.
So what will happen next chapter? Gappy fucking murdering Jobin for making Yasuho bite the dust? A filler? A flashback? Joshuu redemption chapter? Karera coming back?
why is everyone running?
Speaking of Tsurugi, back during Aishou's fight he promised he'd protect his dad. I can't really see him turning against Yasuho again after she went out of her way to help him, but who knows.
Josuke won't hurt Jobin because he promised Tsurugi, but that will give Jobin an opening to attack Josuke becaues he doesn't give a fuck about his family. Josuke gets BTFO by Jobins hidden ability and escapes to the plant appraiser where he forcefully fuses with him and hides in morioh (much like how kira did in part 4) with his new body.
Bastard better keep his promise
...and this is why I don't think he will.
If he ever gets unfused or Gappy decides to regurgitate Kira. Then there's your promise loophole
We will see.
Is Karera in with Jobin for making money?
He literally said he doesn't care if Morioh were destroyed in the process. Meaning he doesn't care if his family were affected. Plus he's a dick to Joshuu but that's besides the point.
>never interacts with his wife or son
>doesn't give a fuck about his town
>keeping the fruit hidden from his son
>parks down the road while damo is threatening his family
>shits himself more over damo being killed than his family being threatened
>There are 3 Owson in JJL now
>The first one is when Josuke walks to the Hospital during Born This Way
>The second one was shown off before Gappy and Joushuu walk down Shakedown Road
>Gappy ran into an Owson this chapter
You wouldn't decapitate something this cute.
But he didn't kill the baby.
Despite being a ruthless killer when he's determined, he still has a soft heart. This chapter made me appreciate him even more.
This is a chapter I hope to see animated in my lifetime.
There's still the mangaka Araki mentioned back in one of his interviews.
>just pretending that everything that Damo did was out of his control
>it's just an elaborate goldberg machine, guys
No I'd cut it into 36 pieces and mail it .
The VA shit is real.
>Sorbet and Gelato -> Twins
>Guy with textured skin who responds to food who ultimately doesn't care for the other person. Secco/Dolomite
>The Trish/Yasuho thing mentioned above.
>Special Rokaka is the new Beetle Arrow
>Speed King's current design
So Araki still hasn't figured out its final design or constantly changing its appearance slightly is part of its thing
>No, probably not. I'll never make it to a place like that
I smell a mistranslation again. I'd bet actual money that it's meant to be Yasuho speaking, saying "YOU'LL never make it".
Yeah, I kinda felt this was the case too.
>Yasuho is actually the flashback girl
I want Josuke and Yasuho to be happy together.
>Special Rokakaka is the new Beetle Arrow
SOFT & WET: BITES THE DUST
Speeding up molecules until they reach an intense heat that even surpasses nuclear levels. This is called Absolute Hot. With this ability to produce heat at levels of absolute hot, Speed king will be able to destroy parts of time and space as well as matter itself.

and can't be arsed to re-do the phone.
You're gonna sell me some bug spray now.
w-what did he mean?
Also thanks, dude
Please fill this with every other running Gappy panel
Trips of love!
Thank you Anon. Stay away from Italians.
Well holy shit, someone used one of my edits for the OP. I'm honored.
Something is wrong with your post
Johnny almost goes dino.
Also pic related
No Aishou gets cucked by Jobin
Not even joking.
I still can't fucking believe I waited 3 years for a jorge joestar translation and it was fucking garbage.
Even worse than I could have possibly expected, what the fuck went wrong.
Is he the fastest JoJo?
Begone with those trips
I'm not falling for your tricks you demon!
How come Josuke's gramps isn't with the rest of them? Did they forget about him or something.
GET OUT OF MY FACE BITCH
I'VE BEEN POSESSED BY AN EVIL SPIRIT
>Tfw only a couple of pieces of porn between the three of them
Damn Yasuho stop poking the fujoshits with the stick.
Kyo also said something similar
Retrospectively this should have been more obvious considering Jobin instantly vanishing in 10 pages at the end of S&W
Honestly what did you expect ?
You knew about the spoilers already, you could have seen what kind of shit it was.
I mean it was way worse than what I expected but I didn't expect much anyway.
I knew that, the moment Jorge Joestar would be fully translated, everyone would see it for the tryhard randumb crap it was and it would instantly lose all appeal.
I find it funny how Buddy Waters goes on Reddit to unironically defend the book as a masterpiece but he can't even really defend the book itself, just suck the author's dick and hold up him being nominated for literary awards.
I mean, hell, maybe the guy is good, but he sure as shit can't write for Jojo.
Has "JohDai" been discussed here at all? I don't ever see anyone bringing it up.
I'm wondering if it's merely some kind of "lucky land" in the SBR universe
Guys, where can find all of the Thus spoke Rohan Kishibe stories in good quality? Preferably in a format you can download.
didn't say which one
What did Araki mean by this?
Shows up in New York even during the SBR race
It's one of those pairing nicknames.
New Speed King looks way scarier, I like it. Dig the new body too
>"Even the Higashikata family members do not know the ability's true nature"
Main villain confirmed?
>Shows up in New York even during the SBR race
>Norisuke I having the two navels could still mean something
THIS IS SOME FORESHADOWING SHIT RIGHT HERE
You've gone too far, anon. I have to deal with You.
I sincerely doubt Araki would read and approve of things like Reimi painfully shitting out a Stand arrow or one of Jonathan's descendants being molested by a zombie puking on his dick.
I think he just drew the cover and let it being published and didn't think much of it. Probably did the same thing with Over Heaven.
He said as much he doesn't really care about what happens in the spin-offs (and we shouldn't either)
Jotaro may not have the most pleasant personality of the Jojos but I'll be damned if he isn't one of the funniest
and most relatable in how he deals with problems
I'm going to marry Jobin's corpse / 10
Would give the cripple snitch stitches again.
I think part of why he's so funny is because he's not trying to be, he's just socially awkward without really realizing it and he comes up with the dumbest one-liners.
He works really well with a character like Polnareff or Josuke, acting as the deadpan stone-faced autist to a more goofy and energetic character.
>Joubin is a gofer of the organisation
Does anyone else realise how big of a game-changer this is?
Joubin may be the first villain in the series that isn't above the protagonists in any way. Holy shit I'm looking MUCH more forward to him as a character now, he has so much room to grow and develop. Now all his manchild antics and his nervous freakout when he saw Damo get killed all make sense, he's actually on the same level or even below Gappy in terms of power.
Place your bets, I say he's going to develop a shit ton in the next few arcs to the point where he actually becomes main villain-tier on his own. Now his own goal makes a shit ton more sense.
How long until this handsome motherfucker pops up again?
>ywn see Dio dress up as a working gal from WWII
>ywn see Dio
get brutally double penetrated by Gappy and Yasuho
>it's the boss of AU rock passione
Yasuho is another character whose design kept changing every other chapter for a while.
It solidified years ago but even now when you look at recent fan art of her the artists mostly just sort of do whatever they feel like when drawing her hair
>around the same age as Jobin
flashback girl is Jobin's wife
I've said this before even the "Other abilities" from the takoban it's a really big reversal in the usual Jojo villeins. Araki strives to keep them unique and separate.
His stand is weaker, he's a manchild to the point where his kid jokes at him, he's emotional and a spoiled brat. Look at the beetle fight, he had to cheat like a child and couldn't figure out Gappy's stand. Araki drew him ugly and spiteful in Event Data Recorder to show much of an obnoxious wanker who is two steps behind the main cast despite being overconfident.
He THINKS he's a big smart player and he's probably smarter than most but isn't near the level of the rock humans or Gappy. I know we joke about "That one kid" but surely we have all bumped into those pseudo intellectuals who spouts quotes and whose ambition far out weighs their ability. (Like Rimmer from Red Dwarf)
I think that's why Araki purposely i making those PB call backs with Joshu and the knife. Everything is pretty grey morality wise and the Jojo is the invader who is more powerful, who much be "Overcome" and allowed to go any "higher"
Be warned, this post may transmit autism,
I'm honestly just really excited to see where Araki goes with all this. We've never had an antagonist that fears the main character this much before. Everything about Joubin makes it seem like he's going to be the one with the most development to the point where a stand-off with Gappy will be the apex of both character's character-arcs.
>Jobin arrives to kill Dolomite for spilling the beans
>Just before kills him
>"Oh yes...your Mitsuba, perhaps I'll take her to this Blue Lagoon tonight. My wife and I haven't gone on many dates this year after all."
>finally seeing That One Pseudo Intellectual Guy as an actual antagonist
I wonder if Araki did this on purpose as like a statement? I know the anime market is flooded right now with those kinds of people as protagonists, and I can't go one day without seeing that kind of person at my college. Do you think this is a sort of statement about that kind of mentality? Or do you think he just saw this as a potentially good personality for a villain without much thought on it culturally?
>not after a~~~~~~~ll!
Got an example of that?
Im sure because Jojo cant turn me on, but you might aswell post it anyways.
I think it's a trope in general that is rarely ever looked into any more than superficially. I bring up Rimmer from Red Dwarf because even though the trope is played for laughs (Same situation, Dad was talented, he's a rich posh boy) he manages to have some truly tragic moments of self realisation. I think Jobin will have some equivalent of that.
I don't think Araki is making a cultural statement,
Perhaps it's his own reflections, even minor villains like Cioccolata spout ideologies who fully commit to them, are driven to survive fatal wounds because of it. So to apply that to a character who hasn't (as far as know) overcome anything major, who was one of the lowest rungs on the ladder while still thinking he was above his father.
There is a difference there between Josefumi's will and ideology towards a dying Kira, compare that to a manchild who is in over his head to the point of ignorance over what Aishou was actually saying.
So I think it will come to pass when "True happiness" and the "Shallow happiness" come together.
Now I feel like one of those stereotypes. But I'm typing on the toilet so that's my excuse.
nice trips, and the image isnt all that bad either
Perhaps. It wouldn't be the first time.
Araki has described once that he likes to write main villains who reflect a current mentality people have. JoJo always tends to reflect the time period it's written in and Araki's fascinations with culture. It is, after all, his ode to humanity.
>The enemies up until that point like DIO and Kars were all aiming for the top—it might have been symbolic of the Japanese economy up until that point, like the bubble economy (laughter). Back in those days, DIO’s might have been the more natural mindset and you might unconsciously sympathize more with that.
>When I was drawing Kira, what people were looking for was tranquility. The idea that happiness is not about standing on top of others. Kira’s awards since he was a middle schooler were all for the #3 spot. Not #1 or #2, but #3. Not conspicuous, but still respectful. He himself has the talent to become #1. But standing out, making enemies, being chased, feeling pressure, feeling expectations he can’t handle that at all. There might be a lot of adults who think like that
We see that Dio and Kars were written out of people's desire to be at the top, and Kira and Diavolo were characters who had clear desires to stay hidden and protect their identities to live in peace. And Pucci and Valentine are similar too, they are evil religious men who justify their evil deeds with what they deem to be heroic purpose. I'm not sure if Araki even follows American politics but Valentine almost seems to act as political commentary for self-righteous religious politicians (he literally uses the corpse of Jesus Christ to fuel America's rise to power).
So perhaps Jobin is indeed meant to act as a reflection of something. Maybe it will be made clearer in the future.
Jobin is a reflection of the worst parts of teenagers/young adults nowadays. Manchildren who are in over their head in terms of both arrogance and self importance believing that they can truly make a difference and are only after shallow forms of happiness like drinking and drugs. This is just speculation
>like drinking and drugs
or harrassing people on the internet for laughs, using that bloated ego to justify trying to force someone into dating them, or the other things these kinds of manchildren do
Could be, but I think it's too early to make a coherent speculation as to what Jobin reflects (IF he reflects anything at all).
I'm personally very excited for our new main villain.
Kaatofags are merely on damage control, do not fret anon. Their "muh girl villain" cries won't do them much now.
That's pretty much the only thing Gappy and Jobin have in common right now. In the prologue of the Part it says the story is about breaking a curse.
Half says he wants to make hella money with the Rokakaka, half says he wants to cure his son with this cure-all that will sell hella money.
I think this also ties in to how Jobin relates to Joshuu.
Last year I pointed out that, despite being the "cool older brother", Jobin is just as much of a manchild as Joshuu, he's just charismatic and rich enough to not get called out on it, and that this is most prominent when Damo dies and we find out he was involved, and the first thing he does is call his mom to whine about it and ask her for help.
And considering Joshuu appears to be heading to a pseudo-redemption arc, to me this feels like further parallels. As in, Joshuu is trying to make an effort to not be as pathetic and whiny (not that he's doing great at it), while Jobin refuses to grow up and almost condemns the city to a zombie apocalypse for petty reasons.
It's like in Phantom Blood where Dio and Speedwagon have this clear comparison point of both of them being born in shitty circumstances and forced to fight to survive, but Speedwagon was redeemable while Dio was not.
Honestly I think Kaato is going to serve a similar role to Yoshihiro.
Araki has been dropping hints on our heads of Jobin being the main villain for 6 years now, while Kaato has barely shown up and hasn't even really done much.
Maybe they are going to work as a duo.
