Am I the only one concerned about this at all?
The casting is actually pretty good, but I'm concerned that they won't be able to capture the feeling of JoJo.
I'm pretty excited to be honest since I love the anime adaptation series. Intrigue but to be fair I'm not going to expect much. Really a passive aggresive outlook for this live-action hmm.
Hey, everybody! Comparison anon here, bringing you the BD/TV comparison for DiU #30, The Cat Who Loved Yoshikage Kira! You can check it out here https://jojocomparisons.github.io/jojo-diu-30/ if you want!
Was just about to share this, great work senpai!
>All those retouched Kira's and they're removing the dent off of Killer Queen's forehead
Do you by any chance have the next couple of BDs ready for comparisons? I remember the July 15th episodes looking pretty bad at some parts, cant wait to see what's been changed.
I've already got the bluray for the next three episodes, I've taken a look at the first one and it doesn't seem like they made too many redraws... We'll see in a few days! Thanks for the kind words, anon! Have a great day
I honestly don't remember the first one looking too bad, though that might just be my bad memory. The 2nd and 3rd one with the 2nd half of the 4th one though had a lot of weird QUALITY, if they fixed that it'd be pretty great.
Hope you have a good day too man, what you're doing is really appreciated.
I think it's forshadowing that Araki will give Yasuho another haircut because he hates drawing braids. Might even cause Paisley Park to evolve and get a more versatile ability so we won't have to have every fight Yasuho is involved in being chase themed.
Despite Paisley Park having a conventionally sexy body, it having the exact same hair as Yasuho kinda kills it, don't you think? It's not the most threatening or elaborate looking stand design. Feels kinda plain compared to the other stands in the part, except for perhaps Hato's, which was really just a deus ex machina Araki pulled put of his ass because he couldn't figure out how to defeat the super strong melty man. So he just gave Hato the power of extendo heels.
>this whole post
Yasuho hasn't even had braids since 2012. You know who does though? Rai, who just showed up. Why would Araki hate braids and what does any of this have to do with bangs?
As for Hato she was obviously going to play a central role in that fight from the very beginning.
I actually do think he said in a JJL interview that he regretted Yasuho's more elaborate design elements, but I don't keep up with these things so I have no clue how true that is.
Not quite. You're thinking of the volume 5 author blurb.
>There are some things I just kinda have fun drawing. Previously, I really enjoyed doing the character Polnareff's hairstyle, the original Josuke's hairstyle, Killer Queen's whole design, and Soft & Wet's ears. Those sort of drawings where you draw them up with a "swish swish", I go "Ooh!" from the impression it gives myself. This time, I have a lot of fun drawing Yasuho-chan's skirt and don't want to let anyone else draw it, but whenever I do draw it, I always think the flowers on the skirt have got to feel lumpy on her butt so she can't sit down. Are you okay, Yasuho? I'm a little worried.
Araki is cute.
Why the fuck does DP draw these pig's ears and this curve on forehead?
Who knows. Mostly they're 100% faithful, only occasionally they'll make some minor adjustments to Stands, like with SP and CD. But both of those actually look better imo. Maybe they thought they could also make KQ look better by making him more menacing, but then they changed their mind when it didn't work out.
Too bad they didn't just do it like the manga from the start.
>As for Hato
I think the simplest and easiest explanation for her is the age old classic "Araki forgot" and Damo's power level stopped making sense right after he turned SHA into goop.
I don't disagree with you, but I do think Araki got sidetracked from Hato while giving us all of this Gappy exposition for a half a year. I do think she was supposed to be crucial at the beginning, but after all of that and Araki demonstrating Damo's insane Vitamin C instant kill for three chapters, he probably forgot just WHAT Hato was supposed to do, so he improvised by giving Damo some weird, inexplicable stand range and outfitted Hato with a lame, yet effective, stand and gave it a lame title. My main evidence for this is that Walking Heart just barely references a song and it's highly unlikely Araki listens to such incredibly obscure music, so I think he half-assed a lot of Hato's role. She doesn't even get to be the one to kill Damo because Gappy makes an absurdly quick and miraculous recovery following his liver being ripped out (which makes no sense because that's what killed Kira) and follows Damo out into traffic to kill him in broad daylight, though you could argue that Gappy had to do that to expose Jobin, it still doesn't feel like Jobin was supposed to be a major villain and Araki only made him one out of convenience because of reasons like part 4, there hadn't been a main villain introduced and Gappy just murdered the leader of the fruit smugglers, so there's no more conflict.
Those are some big assumptions and they don't seem to have any actual reasoning behind them.
Kira was actually killed by the shrapnel in his head by the way.
It seems like they're doing their own thing instead. I'm seeing none of that distinctive Jojo flamboyance in any aspect of the trailer.
Granted, we haven't seen any scenes involving stands yet.
I hope you go back and finish the Battle Tendency comparisons after you're done with DIU.
Kira was killed by the earthquake which reversed the Rokaka process.
Josefumi's body was being broken down to provide Kira with the replacement parts needed to keep him alive. The boat didn't completely kill him because Killer Queen was still beside him.
The earthquake sunk the both of them and the process went the other way for some reason, with Josefumi taking unnecessary parts from Kira, killing him and turning Josefumi into Gappy.
How would Hollywood do Jojo though?
They'd probably whitewash most of them and then arbitrarily change ethnicities, sexualities, and weights for a fake version of "representation"?
They aren't humans, they're rocks. It's entirely plausible their pieces gathered somewhere and if the right fellow came along and collected their little rock bits, couldn't they be merged using the fruit?
We know that most of Yotsuyu is lost at sea, and Aishou would have chunks that are crushed to bits. Combining them into a new entity would follow the theme of equivalent exchange in Jojolion.
Is the guy who played Kamen Rider Kabuto still acting? He was 6' and spoke flawless, accentless English.
>Aishou is a timid fuccboi desperately trying to contact Yotsuyu, Doppster
>Yotsuyu has Diavolo's triangles and eye lines and also took a kid's identity, Diavolo
I'm glad that they're splitting it up into multiple films and not trying to condense the whole thing into one film (like that Phantom Blood movie), but I'm concerned about what the stands will look like.
What's more, back then Araki could only draw men buff, unlike now. Maybe he didn't mean to make them look like that, they're just teenagers and their weight doesn't match their appearance.
It's going to be shit, we all know it's going to be shit , but at least we will get to see some dumb live action bullshit. The thing JoJo has going for it over most anime is that the characters themselves don't actually do most of the fighting. All they have to do is stand there and pose while the CG animators do the work.
With the new film, are we gonna see best boy Teru in 3d?
Furthermore, will Yukako ever get that lobotomy?
99% of the cast is made white.
Okuyasu is turned into a black best friend and "gangsta" stereotype. Same with Keicho.
Aya is turned into a mexican.
The rest would be white. I figured the others would be changed to fit other minorities however. Yuya would be changed into a wheelchair user, Yukako would be changed to be overweight, and Rohan would be made into an extremely flamboyant gay man for further representation purposes.
Kira is redesigned wearing a fedora and make misogynistic comments at random so the American Liberal audience would despise him.
>Aishou has terrible luck like Doppio and can't seem to catch a break
>Aishou has the sweater
>Aishou frequently checks his phone when he can't contact Yotsuyu
It's not even a theory at this point, Aishou was Doppio with
a Wamuu stand
The only Hollywood Jojo movie I'd actually watch would be a Mel Brooks parody of parts 1-3, 5, or 7 especially.
They'd do the first part of Phantom Blood and end on a cliffhanger. The whole thing would be faithful to the original and a well written drama of the rivalry between two brothers.
The second and third movies would also be faithful to the original, but people will end up bitching about how the author ran out of ideas and made it progressively worse.
Then they try to adapt SBR, and people start bitching about diversity quotas.
Super late reply, but yeah, of course I will! I intend to do every episode.
Normally I do only update on sundays because I work during weekdays, but the thing I was working on has ended at the beginning of may and I won't start working on the next thing until the end of may. So I'm basically on vacation!
HftF is pretty dated nowadays and only covers part 3 the
I do like the wide cast. Wish we coulda got N'Doul and Gray Fly who were both cut for no clear reason. I do like Chariot Requiem's cameo in the game.
I hate Rubber though, just a cheap Kakyoin recolor.
Play something better.
It ends on a satisfying note, with Emporio killing Pucci and reviving his friends who now all get to live happy, peaceful lives.
Part 6's ending is very bittersweet, but that's why I like it I think.
Just a heads up For the hardcore fans or figure collectors here (already posted on /toy/) Im looking to sell my RAH Kira
Asking $150 shipped (open to offers)
Near mint condition with all accessories and box.
Jojonium for size
>Araki could only draw men buff
Nah, it was a stylistic choice. He based it off strong men competitions like Mr Galaxy. Later on he drew inspiration from fashion magazines and Greco-Roman statues.
isn't there some interview where he said he'd bought like 50 Italian movie/record posters from the 50s-60s before Vento Aureo?
Viz took down their Blu-Ray page
I wonder if the way he later pointed at her when she answers him has something to do with his stand ability, since he points to get the strawberries as well
maybe his stand acts less like Stone Free and more like "I point at thing and my stand gets it", perhaps even "getting an answer" the same way it got the strawberries
he also points at the trees but it doesn't seem like much happens with that
or maybe I'm just making shit and none of this makes any sense
Yasuho looked kinda ugly this chapter. She was also pretty ditzy, maybe Speed King really damaged something in there. Or maybe Araki did that so the Plant Appraiser had a bad first impression. OR MAYBE the plant appraiser was fucking with her
And more importantly, why the fuck did they fix it here but not in Quiet Life and Sheer Heart Attack?
How did Araki know about Dire Straits? Were they poplar in Japan?
I don't know why.
Viz has their Blu-ray page back up.
RightStuf's also put up their page.
Personally I thought she looked real cute with her rounder cheeks.
It's kind of her thing to be a bit out of her element among all the wackiness while still doing her best. Koichi was the same way.
Live action renditions of characters always look older than their manga/anime versions.
Here is their trailer.
What did they mean by this?
It's Narancia's birthday tomorrow
I'm going to give him a BIG surprise.
You are insulting Narancia by posting this.
>can't wish Gappy a "Happy
GappyBirthday" because the date is unknown.
>Still, I can't find the Blu-Ray for 28-30.
That's because comparisonanon contacted JJCA for a raw provider one time. Probably not sharing it as part of an agreement.
Fuck you fucker
Ah sorry I am in america man
I'll give it to him both tonight and tomorrow
Would Gappy have 2 birthdays?
One for Kira one for Josefumi?
Probably for aesthetic reasons. Spain has some nice coastlines.
Sorta like how a chunk of tv shows are shot in wales just beaus they happened to giant barren bits of land.
I'm honestly surprised there's no brap edits of Mr.Bean
Post a more savage burn from any Part of Jojo.
Another season, another flop (Sagrada Reset).
Look at all the flops David has made, every thing sold poorly or is selling less than expected. David is losing money and not even Jojo can save them. Hopefully David shuts down, Part 5 never and a studio that is good picks up Jojo.
What's a good studio that could do JoJo well while keeping its "JoJo feel" and animate it with little to no QUALITY while being faithful to the manga artstyle? (Even if the animation is not very fluid)
The thing that bothers me the most about DavidPro's anime is definitely the QUALITY.
Part 4 sucks, I miss when JoJo was manime. Kira is the only deep villain in the series. Part 5 is shit! Part 5 is the best part and the only thing not perfect about it was the old translation. Giorno is a great character and you're retarded if you don't like him. Part 6 is shit! Jolyne is a whore. I hate David Productions, their anime is shit. JoJolion is the only good part. Joshu. Valentine was right. Araki is a terrible writer. Obese DIO. Favorites-chart with bad choices. Why didn't Joseph just use Hermit Purple to find Kira? I love Narancia.
>Part 4 sucks, I miss when JoJo was manime
Finally someone agrees! Part 4 is lame moeshit
>yfw the stands are not 3DCG, but guys in Tokusatsu suits
I searched up "hafu actors" and the most attractive and non-Japanese-looking ones either were too old or looked too girly. I came to the conclusion that a full European man would make for a better Jotaro, especially considering tall and fit Japs are extremely rare.
I thought some of the more Japanese-looking hafu actors would be a good fit for Kakyoin though.
That reminds me of the time someone suggested Peter Steele would have been a good choice to play Jotaro
They say they are starting with japanese actors, if DiU is successful, will they nippon-ize Johnathan, Joseph, Giorno and Joylene and all other characters from different ethnicity?
Basically what the Live action SnK did?
What's so bad about it? It's pretty stylish for a water strider.
Part 3's stand designs are pretty varied yet mostly cohesive. They all look good and are easy to grasp, basically. Araki started running out of stand ideas in part 5 and ever since then, each one has become more of a random clusterfuck than the last.
just realized that josuke isn't going to die in jojolion, or atleast for a while after - josuke 1 atleast lived till MIH reset the universe, and even then he would've simply been transferred over as another person
Why would what happened in Stone Ocean affect different universe events?
Even then, Josuke didn't die. He didn't show up to face Pucci, so why would he be dead/different person?
>When the part 4 BDs have completely sold out at events, merchandise is selling like hotcakes and the number of collaboration events are bigger than ever.
The power of in-house fixes, but seriously, what did you expect? Not every studio has an infinite well of money, if anything part 4's adaptation was a big step over the others because DP actually used their budget properly. They spent less on the insignificant episodes to make the important ones (like the last 5) look fucking amazing.
Name a single series from David aside from Jojo that did't flop. They are riding on the coat-tails on one of the largest manga series and are still not selling that well.
Face it David fucking sucks.
How do David's other series even relate to JoJo? JoJo's widely different to anything else they've done and still is one of the most unique anime to come out in recent times.
>And are still not selling that well
But the series is selling just fine and the money they're getting from the merchandise, events and publicity is more than ever?
What even is your argument senpai?
It wasn't that long after I watched jojo part 4 which was the best part in my opinion, but some things still bother me.
First, why didn't Josuke use Crazy Diamond on Kira nails to know where he is just like he did with his hand?
Second, how much blood that Koishi faggot have to be pierced by an arrow and bleed around all the house yet he was still alive?
It's just a style thing. In the first few chapters of part 3 before Jotaros design was solidified you can see the hat in more detail and can easily pick out the band going all the way around his head, separating hat from hair. Initially Jotaro doesn't wear his hat his hat straight or on the centre of his head so often a bunch of hair on the side or the back of his head would be sticking out. Sometimes even up over the edge of his hat. Over time Arakis style changed and there were a lot of shots of Jotaro in the distance or in the background where there was less room for detail. Because the manga is in black and white and because Jotaros hat and hair were both dark they started to blend together visually. Without including a detail like the band to separate them they merged into a single dark shadow. Eventually it became a sort of trademark style of the character. Even when drawn in close up with lots of detail his hair and hat blended together. Eventually you get to part 4 and have Jotaro's clothing changed to a lighter colored clothing scheme. His hat and hair now had distinct shading that could separate them but Araki still drew it as if the hat was growing out of the hair because by then, that had become Jotaros "look".
>Not lovingly hoarding the corpse of your husbando and having cute tea parties with him.
>Not holding his hands and dancing with him now he's light enough to carry.
Oh wait, Kira doesn't have a head and you can't touch his ghost form.
My main concerns are stands, will they be actual CGI models or the characters just have their respective powers.
If they do have CGI models, then my main concern will be how they look
>Part 1: Dio can freeze people's limbs by robbing them of their body heat
>Part 2: Esidisi can heat his own blood up to absurd temperatures
>Part 4: SHA goes after the hottest thing in the room, more often than not targetting people due to their body heat
>Part 5: Grateful Dead ages men faster than women, telling them apart by tiny differences in their body temperature; thus, cooling yourself off with ice cubes will slow down and even revert the aging effect
>Part 6: Sky rods feed off of people's body temperature at a very precise level, causing various ailments and organ malfuctions
>Part 8: Speed King can heat thing sup in a 10cm radius, causing strokes and bleeding on people when it heats up their blood vessels
Why is Araki such a hack for body heat?
So according to rai, there's one branch but it won't survive past winter, that means it will give another rokakaka before it dies? Or will he steal it and reveal himself as the mafia leader?
>Part 3: Dio can stop time
>Part 4: Kira can loop time
>Part 5: Diavolo can erase time
>Part 6: Pucci can acselerate time
>Part 7: Ringo can rewind time and Diego can stop time
Why is Araki such a hack for manipulating of time?
I think Rai will have Wek's role, as in, become ally and get absolutely wrecked by the villain so we see what they're capable of.
RIP Wekapipo, hopefully Rai doesn't have it as bad as him.
>that old reaction image
let me remake it so it doesnt look as shit and blurry when i made it back then
From the way things are going, how do you think Araki will wrap part 8 up?
>main villain fight part 6 levels of crazy
>culminating main villain fight, nothing too crazy
>resolution reached without a "final battle"
will josuke marry yasuho after
what will be the "High Voltage" of jojolion
I'm predicting Jobin will keep a low profile, and after Gappy and co. defeat the Rock men group and get the fruit Jobin will swoop in and take it for himself, some kind of fusion occurs, final battle ensues
What in face did you just fucking say about my hair, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in high school, and I’ve been involved in numerous fights with Stand users, and I have over 300 confirmed heals. I am trained in stand warfare and I’ve the top ability in the entire Duwang region. You are nothing to me but just another fatty. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in this part, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting the Speedwagon Foundation and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the Heavy Weather, maggot. The snails that wipe out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime over 60 km/h, and I can restore you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with Crazy Diamond. Not only do I know the secret Joestar technique, but I have access to the majority of Stand users in Duwang and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will Dorarararara fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re getting a feeling so complicated, kiddo.
Just watch the TV version. The art is practically the fucking same. All the retards in this thread will tell you different though. Any differences are tiny and don't change must of the impact of the show.
I don't like Joshuu. He is the kind of person I would go out of my way to avoid.
My bro I like watching the anime and we don't have that much time to read the original work. We saw the first ep by horriblesubs and saw it was censored. Trying to find a 1080p uncensored rip of DIU, fucking sucks.
Also, another problem was that you're on si.
He never asked for them subbed.
No one subbed the BDs, just grab either the Diamond is Fixed subs or the ones from SomeStuffs.
the fight is probably gonna take place on the chairlift itself, with the enemy stand below them.
Today is his special birthday.
Please ignore the posts when you do see them.
I have the 3rd Battle Tendency volume and 1st and 2nd Stardust Crusaders volume.
The Shueisha color scans are ugly anyway. Plus the JoJoniums have Araki-colored and bichrome pages
JoJolion is dogshit. This manga stopped being good after part 5, but even then there were some shitty parts like part 4. Fuck part 6, 7, and 8, and fuck the Amerifats who worship them.
Childhood is thinking GER was an asspull.
Adulthood is realizing GER was pure pottery and kino.
Heaven Ascension is knowing Sleeping Slaves was a great arc in the perfect place at that point of the story.
haha i can't wait to not get a character that i want because he's only 5* and has a less then 1% drop haha
Only experience is getting his ass roughed up by Padre
Actually had sex with a person who still loved him after being abandoned
I saved up all of my Diamond Coins for DIO. Spent about 100 diamonds and 8 Statue Tickets to get him.
And I did.
I now have another 140 and another 7 tickets saved up for someone else like Vanilla Ice or Kira (if they're actually good).
>tfw spent a couple gold tickets and 150 diamonds on the kak/dio banner and didn't get any 5 stars
Why don't they look RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPED AS FUCK in that movie?
Space-time is inextricably linked.
Without space, there would be nothing to change. Without time, there would be nothing to measure that change.
Thus, D4C is a time-based Stand.
holy shit you can't be this autistic
I know right?
Who can actually take such a retarded bait seriously?
Did Nyaa came back?
Nyaa is gone for good, he deactivated his site because of a recent law passing in EU.
Without talking about the drama between the two sites, here are the two alternatives.
>nyaa dot si
>nyaa dot pantsu dot cat
Pick whichever you want.
You aren't fooling anyone.
