Yasuho's nice but she can't stand alone at all. Her character is explicitly defined by her defining herself with other people and how she can support them.

Presumably if she survives the end of JoJolion will show her having surpassed that, but for the majority of the story she has been and presumably will be Here To Help above all.

Fans create reasonable facsimiles of his styles all the time so there's no reason to think he couldn't if he really wanted to. He's never been the kind of artist to care about going back like that though.
>>
>>157483688
Because it's really all she has, and makes her a completely passive, inactive character on her own. Her main role is propping other characters up.

Characters like Jolyne or Gyro or Mista or whatever aren't just defined by their relationships with others. They all have their own goals and ambitions, and those are all clear to see. If you take away the relationships Jolyne has with her friends and father she's still a strong-willed and determined girl who's generally reasonable but is extremely brutal and merciless when messed with. If you take away Gyro's relationship with Johnny then he's still a scary and efficient guy who proves himself to be a more lighthearted dork underneath it, but is still a noble and determined guy underneath that. If you take away Mista's relationships with the VA crew he's still a friendly and somewhat lazy Italian youth who can be alarmingly serious and determined when he has to be. The relationships these characters have with others are important and add a lot to them, but it isn't all they have.

Yasuho's relationship with Gappy is all she has. Without her wanting to help the boy she met who came out of the ground like two weeks ago, she has no reason to do anything and doesn't, and her personality isn't shown to be much more than 'nice teenage girl'.

Calm down, anon, it's too early to be lethal.
>>
>>157483888
That's not right. Yasuho too is determined, reliable, a little awkward, and kind of a dork in general. The reason she's even so drawn to Josuke is because he reminds her of herself and how she feels like she doesn't belong anywhere due to her home environment and her relationship with her mother. There are times we see her on her own and she's messing around, clearly trying to stave off ennui, and in one case she's daydreaming of getting out and seeing the world instead. Tsurugi even says outright that she's projecting her own issues onto him.
>>
>>157484161
She has a few traits of her own like you mentioned, but overwhelmingly she's defined by her want to help him.

You said it yourself there - Even Tsurugi brings it up. She's defining herself with another person, and while it's a character-point which could be used well, for the moment she's really just there to assist others, and without them she doesn't really have a point or motive.

>>157484342
I could keep listing those traits if you wanted to, like her motherly instincts and whatnot. Saying there's nothing else than her relationship with Josuke is just wrong.

>and without them she doesn't really have a point or motive.
Well, that's like how Jotaro was there to help Holly or Mista was there to help Buccellati. Again, how is it a flaw of the character? She's getting involved in dangerous situations despite not having to and she could get out of it and live her own life if she wanted to, but she doesn't because that's the kind of person she is.
>>
>>157484594
Virtually all of that falls under the 'nice teenage girl' umbrella.

And I don't think you get it. There's a motive and then there's the core of a character. Without Holly, Jotaro doesn't go to Egypt, but there's still plenty that's obvious to be seen about him - his simple stance on good and evil, his aggression-issues that mellow out over time, him showing mercy to Kakyoin, being a mentor to the Morioh kids, etc etc. Jotaro's relationship with Holly is part of him, but it's an excuse for him to go on an adventure, it's not the core part of his character. The same with Mista and Buccellati, and the latter isn't even really true - Mista's first action was shooting three men who were assaulting a woman, and the given reason he had for accompanying Buccellati when he defected was money. Neither of these characters were defined by Holly or by Buccellati - they were aspects, but they aren't all they have.

No, you're being reductive for no reason. Those are legitimate character traits.

The 'core of the character' is exactly what all these traits I've been mentioning are.

So she's sweet, reliable, motherly, is quirkily cute at times and really loves to help people. I'm really not hearing anything groundbreaking here.

It might be 'legitimate' but all she really has is helping Gappy and giving him something to care about. Once again, she cannot stand on her own and it isn't fair to compare her to characters who can.

He manages to be intimidating as fuck yet top tier bully material at the same time.
>>
>>157485183
Didn't I also mention her clearly being very unhappy with her life and the ways in which it shows?

Again, in what sense is it a flaw of the character that her motive is to help out? Her being motivated by that is directly caused by her own personal life. She absolutely is a person even outside of her relationship with Josuke, and the only reason you're saying she can't stand on her own is because she's intentionally involving herself in something that doesn't need to be her business.

You're seeing far more depth than is actually there. She's got some mommy-issues which are mentioned a couple of times, doesn't make her a fantastic and fleshed-out character. And 'Here To Help' can be good sometimes even if it's usually fairly weak, but when the character in question is overwhelmingly just a sweet, encouraging side-character it really isn't.
>>
>>157485472
>You're seeing far more depth than is actually there.
Nope, it's right there in the manga. She has mentioned it outright several times, as did Tsurugi once.

>Implying rock fuckers are people

>>157485592
Like I said, it's been mentioned once or twice as part of the Freudian reason for her being a dedicated supporting-character. It doesn't make her some amazing, groundbreaking 'absolutely a person' type of character, nor could she stand alone on her own merits as the vast majority of other major characters could.
>>
>>157485651
Oh, I don't care if you think she's a fantastic character or anything, but it does seem to me like you're not paying much attention to what the essence of the character really is.

How am I seeing more depth than there is when it's all right there in the manga? She even says something like, "I too don't know who I am" and when she's on her own she's often doing things like licking her elbow or folding paperclips out of boredom, or wistfully daydreaming about seeing Amalfi coast.

Because you're seeing a teaspoon and convincing yourself it's the ocean. Yasuho has her quirks and interests like literally any other character, but her role and personality are far more dependent on the MC than any major supporting-character before or since.

Yasuho COULD be a lot better than she is, but at the moment she's not.

just how popular is jojo in glorious nihhon?
wan pissu and evangelion are huge in japan, but other series sometimes find their footing in western fanbases, like naruto or sword art online, for example. every time the series has some milestone or event or whatever where a bunch of the other mangakas are obliged to draw a doodle to honor it, it's always part 3 jotaro, who has probably the most iconic character design in the series, which to me makes it seem like they aren't really fans of araki's work and just drew him because they knew the design. seems to me like it's one of those "famous for being around for so long" kinda cultural icons rather than being famous for the content within the work, like kochikame or the simpsons or something.
>>
>>157478304

Nope. Scroll up. I never said that she had no personality, I said that her personality isn't shown to be much beyond 'nice teenage girl', and that her motivation and role in the story (I'm Here To Help) are weak, which I stand by.

I'll give you Anasui, he's a similar sort of character in that he has virtually nothing outside of Jolyne.

She just beat a cripple up with a metal pipe until he fainted. Where does that fit in that umbrella you thought up?

Even her reason for that "I'm here to help" has plenty of intricacies to it for a Jojo character. Her situation just happens to be handled a little more subtly than those who get flashbacks to their backstories, but that's because it's about modern ennui rather than something melodramatic. The whole thing also ties strongly into the main theme of the part about having somewhere to belong to.
>>
>>157486680
Plenty of nice teenage girl characters are capable of violence, particularly to protect their loved ones. See: Literally any magical girl ever. And don't act as though 'nice teenage girl' is something that I came up with, either.

And like I said before, you're looking at a teaspoon and convincing yourself it's an ocean. Yasuho is there for Josuke above all else, and while that's okay she cannot and does not stand on her own. You know, as I've been saying.

>>157486647
You're right, and there's nothing wrong with that. The issue with characters like Anasui and Yasuho is that there's very little to them outside of the relationships they have with (or the relationships they project, in Anasui's case) the main characters.
>>
>>157486813
The point of the relationship between Josuke and Yasuho is that Yasuho found a way to escape her boring life with Josuke, and that's why she keeps calling him and helping him,because that nice amnesiac guy with a mystery to solve is more interesting than her dysfunctional family and her shitty friends.
>>
>>157486813
>and while that's okay she cannot and does not stand on her own
Okay, maybe we've got different definitions here or something. In what sense do you mean that?
>>
>>157486886
Her mother is dysfunctional but I'm pretty sure her friends are decent. And it's cool that she has fun with Josuke and enjoys being around him, but given that literally all we see her doing is trying to help him (with him surprisingly rarely ever actually getting to hang out with her) it makes her seem like an accessory more often than not.

>>157486893
As I said from the start. If you take away Anasui's relationship with Jolyne, there's a BIT of a character there. We have a guy with a bad temper who disassembled his girlfriend, and who spends his time... hanging out in a piano with Weather, I guess? He throws a tantrum about Mickey one time. But without Jolyne he doesn't really do much, all we'd get from him is his backstory and the sense that he's kind of an asshole and nothing else.

Yasuho is much the same. If you take away her relationship with Josuke, she's a nice teenage girl who gets upset by aggressive sexual advances (like Joshu and those druggies) and has a bad home life. It's a foundation for a character, but a pretty bare-bones one. Yasuho's role in the story revolves pretty much entirely around her relationship with the main character, and given how that's far from the focus of the story (She didn't appear for over a year at one point) she comes off as superfluous, something that's there to provide information above all. Compare her to Gyro, who clearly has his own goals and his own interests and relationships outside of Johnny, which means that his choice to do so has more depth and meaning. Gyro was made to be a cool character. Yasuho was made to help Josuke.
>>
>>157487130
> but given that literally all we see her doing is trying to help him
What about the Doobie Wah fight?
>>
>>157487170
That's part of her trying to help him, doofus. Her and Tsurugi were investigating the fruit (and Aishou) because it clearly had a lot to do with Gappy's origins.
>>
>>157487130
>She didn't appear for over a year at one point
That was a mere two arcs, one of which being very long due to the flashbacks, and a hiatus. She has consistently been the second most central character of the part, appearing in every arc in some capacity save for Milagro Man.

Now you're talking about motives again though. It's true that she wouldn't have gotten involved if it wasn't for Josuke, but she was her own person with her own problems and her own personality even before then and the fact that she's helping out so much despite having not needing to says a lot about her character and how important she thinks it is. Her having been a normal person beforehand is part of her character, she's supposed to be kind of out of her element.
>>
>>157484817
Not our problem if you only see her as your waifu.
>>
>>157485172
He looks like a rocker.
>>
We can agree that while Yasuho isn't Jolyne level, she's much better than Trish, right?
>>
>>157487452
Yes, she makes a lot of appearances - to provide some information that Josuke needs. She's there as an accessory to him.

On that note, what would she do if Josuke died? She doesn't really have any links to the Higashikatas - she ditched Joshu, and while she has some level of fondness for Tsurugi it's probably not enough for her to continue fucking around with all this fruit shit. Her role in JoJolion revolves entirely around how much use she is to Josuke.

Which is my entire point, which I'll repeat again. Most of the other characters are made to be characters. Yasuho was made to help Josuke.

Your entire point is about motives though. Yes, she's there to help Josuke and she wasn't involved in anything wacky on her own before meeting him, but does that invalidate the rest of her characterization somehow? It's not even just because she likes him, we've already discussed how there's more to it than that.

>it's probably not enough for her to continue fucking around with all this fruit shit
She'd continue.

>>
>>157487778
I don't think you get this. A character whose only purpose is to support another character is generally weaker than a character who has purposes other than supporting another character. Yasuho and Anasui have very, very little without the main character, whereas other characters with more depth and better writing have motivations outside of that. Jotaro's role in part 3 wasn't about his relationship with his mother, it was about the adventures he had en-route to saving her and what he thought of them. But Yasuho's role in the story isn't like that - it's for her to be there to give Josuke answers when he needs them. I don't know how many times I have to say this.

I'm going to have to strongly disagree with your headcanon there, too. There's nothing to suggest she'd go on risking her life for the Higashikatas (especially since she now knows that Jobin himself is a threat) who she has virtually nothing to do with.
>>
>>157485917
It's fairly popular and still has a sizable fanbase. Generally from what I understand about nip readers they loved part 1, disliked part 2, loved part 3, disliked part 4, considered part 5 to be the pinnacle of the series, hated part 6, and then everyone was split on love/hate for part 7. And part 8 seems to be getting fairly positive attention thus far.

Part 3 is classic JoJo for them though and they think it represents the series best as a whole on top of Jotaro being an instantly recognizable design is why Mangaka tend to draw him most. Although not always off the top of my head for the 25th anniversary Kishimoto drew Giorno, Kubo drew Ghiacco, the Shaman King guy had drawn Jolyne, and Takahashi drew Gappy I think? Though yeah there were a ton of Jotaros from like Toriyama, Murata, Oda, and the Toriko guy.
>>
>>157485917
I mean, Araki himself drew Jotaro a lot as if he was the mascot of JoJo. Not all other mangaka drew only him, but the ones who did probably did it because Jotaro is supposed to represent the entire series. I'm sure it's the same with the "mascots" of other series, they will pick one character in particular as a tribute to that specific manga.

I don't know exactly how popular JoJo is in Japan (in general) or why but of course the pre-2000 stuff seems to be more memorable than the rest (not just part 3). Maybe it's like Pokémon in the West, if you get what I'm saying.
>>

Virtually all of these seem bizarrely off.
Part 1 is respected but doesn't seem to be peoples favorite, part 2 (Joseph in particular) are liked very much, part 3 is where it became explosively popular, part 4 is very popular, part 5 is less popular than 4 but has a larger fujo fanbase, part 6 is generally regarded with indifference, and most of them didn't read part 7.

>>157487975
I on the other hand don't know how many times I have to emphasize that while helping Josuke is the reason she gets involved it's not all there is to her. Boiling an entire character down to just their motive reminds me of that one villain ranking image. It's not just about her wanting to help Josuke, it's about her trying to find somewhere to belong to in a more general sense and how she deals with all the situations she's not entirely prepared for. She has already grown increasingly tougher and more resourceful after learning of her stand.

>headcanon
Nonsense. She has already risked her life before. If Josuke died she'd sure as hell want to finish what he started.
>>
>>157488230
Lisa Lisa trained Joseph and had a big impact on him. She helped him mature.
>>
>>157488247
Basically. F.F was consistently good but you blink and you'll miss her, and her fight with Dragons Dream was pretty lame and too long. Her death-scene was fucking fantastic, though. HP never hit the same heights as F.F, but her fights were better, and she had a constant presence in the part which gradually revealed her backstory. Her death-scene was blink and you'll miss it, though.

When I first read it I thought that she'd reappear and play a part in the final battle, it seemed too lame and sudden a send-off for a major supporting character. Even Wekapipo had it better.
>>
>>157488314
And once again, a characters motive and their role are not the same thing, but in Yasuho's case they are. Yasuho's motive is helping Josuke. Her role is also helping Josuke. It's what she was made for and she's done nothing outside of it for almost the entire comic. You seem to really love this, and that's okay, but as I've said, multiple times, you're seeing depth when it isn't there. Characters like Gyro have interests and motivations outside of the hero. Yasuho does not. She has some Freudian reasoning behind it, but at the end of the day, Yasuho is there to be Josuke's assistant, not a character that can stand on her own. Once again, I've said all of this. Many, many times now. I hope it sinks in this time.

And you're making assumptions, to, to further support your interpretation of Yasuho's role in the comic not ACTUALLY being all about Josuke. Until we see evidence of it, there's nothing suggesting that she'd do that.

I don't know man I had a few Nippon friends in college that all had the general consensus among themselves and everyone they knew that Part 1 was the cornerstone of the series, part 2 was entirely skippable, part 3 is what made JoJo so iconic, 4 was liked but not as interesting, part 5 was thought of as a better part 3, part 6 got a lot of hate mainly with the cast and Jolyne's Stand, and SBR was mixed reception. And I've seen a lot of the same reactions online.

She's basically a human gril when she steals that bod, her besties considered her one at least.

>>157488674
I don't think your Japanese friends represent the general opinion. Part 4 being disliked stands out in particular, as does part 5 supposedly being the height of it.
>>
>>157488547
She 'can't stand on her own' only in the sense that she wouldn't have gotten involved without him, just like how Johnny wouldn't have been involved because he wanted to learn about Gyro's balls. You're dismissing all the points I make simply as "seeing depth when it isn't there", but not actually bothering to point out how any of it is false.

She has become kind of a mother figure to Tsurugi. Why would she not help him out?

Once again, no, no, no. She is involved because she's there to help Josuke. Helping Josuke is her motive. Helping Josuke is also what she does.

Johnny's motive was gathering the corpse parts so he could value himself. But his role wasn't just him mindlessly doing that - it was about his growth as a person, and his friendship with Gyro.

Yasuho is not remotely like that. Her motive was helping Josuke. And her role is helping Josuke too. They are the same thing, and it's not as interesting.

You're grossly exaggerating her angst, and even if you weren't it wouldn't change anything. Yasuho wants to help Josuke, and what she does in the comic is help Josuke. Her feelings aren't what I'm talking about. I have said this. Again and again and again.
>>
>>157489056
Yes, pretty obviously.

The idea that 5 is more popular than 4 seems particularly off, given that 4 seems to get referenced a ton more in other media. And the notion that they hate 2 is absolutely ludicrous.
>>
>>157489089
I never said she was angry.
>Her feelings aren't what I'm talking about.
They're a pretty good explanation for her behaviour.
>>
>>157489147
Anger isn't what 'angst' means. Angst means general dread and dissatisfaction.

Anyway, as I have repeatedly said: Yasuho's motivation is helping Josuke. Obviously if she didn't have feelings on the subject then she wouldn't be doing it. I am not talking about the motivation for her motivation. I am talking about how her motivation for the story and her role in the story are the same thing. I have said this. Again and again and again.
>>
I love Narancia and the anime.
>>
>>157489089
>exaggerating
No, he's right. I talked about the ways it manifests a couple of times earlier.

You can also see pretty much any time she shows up how thirsty for any kind of non-Joshuu affection she is. Look at her and Josuke's reunion scene and how much more forward she is compared to him. Who asks someone to sing like that?
>>
>>157489254
Yes, you keep repeating it, it doesn't mean you're right.
The thing is, Yasuho is living a generally disappointing life, her mother is shit, her dad is nowhere to be found, she doesn't care much about her friends, she has no lover except a creepy stalker she knows from childhood, and one day she meets an amnesiac dude with a mystery to solve concerning his story, she learns about stands, she has feelings for the guy, why would she not want to help him?
Helping Josuke is exciting and she's in love with him, there's a breaking point between her life before she knew him and her life after, now she's living a life full of action and dangers, what do you want her to do, stay at home and study? She doesn't care about school much from what we've seen. Stay at home and play videogames like the fuckup her mom is? No, she wants to go out with the man she loves and learn about him, etc. It's completely fine.

And you keep shrilly repeating yourself, post after post after post, it doesn't mean you're right. You're in fact proving that you're wrong by projecting stuff like Yasuho's relationship with her friends onto her.

As I said before, I am not talking about the motivation for Yasuho's motivation. Obviously she has emotions involved. Obviously. It's the same way that Jotaro loves his mother and wants her not to die. Both of these characters have a similar motive - Jotaro to help Holly, and Yasuho to help Josuke. Their feelings for this motive are different. I really hope you're following, you should be because I haven't said anything new here. Anyway, these characters both want to help, but the roles they take in the story are different. Jotaro's story focuses on his adventures, the friends he makes, and the things that he does. Yasuho's story focuses on her helping Josuke. Which, as we have hopefully established, is the same as her motive. Her motive and her role in the story are the same thing. I hope that talking like Mojo JoJo might help here.

I think I'm going to end this here out a combination of exhaustion and uncertainty that you even understand what I've been saying, given that you thought angst meant anger and how you seem to keep confusing Yasuho's inner emotional reasoning with her motivation.
>>
>>157489525
There's plenty about Yasuho that obviously does stem from her shitty home-life (look at how much of Joshu's shit she put up with) but that absolutely isn't. It's what it looks like, a teenage girl and a teenage boy being carefree and playful while they have the chance.

Not him, but does Yasuho not have adventures, does Yasuho not become friends with Tsurugi, does Yasuho not do any things?

>>157489804
No anon, Yasuho just helps Josuke. She has never done anything else. She never will do anything else. Just, help Josuke.
>>
>>157489751
Eh, you could be right, but I think it's a little bit of A and a little bit of B.

Thinking about it now it's kind of a wonder their relationship is as nice and healthy as it is considering that even on Josuke's side it starts out like a sort of imprinting. There's lots of childbirth symbolism going on in the first chapter where she pulls him out of the hole and his first words are her name.

>Actual OVA hipsters
The OVA's designs were ugly garbage. Blond Joseph and Polnareff? Pale Abdul? Jotaro with magenta highlights? DIO in general not having an iota of sex-appeal?

And it's soulless and stupid, too. The characters are half-assed shells of themselves. Polnareff's the only one who comes close to being what he was in the manga or anime, and even then he's fucked over by the majority of his important character-moments being cut. The Vanilla Ice fight was COMPLETELY fucked too, so his climax as a character was ruined.

By far the worst thing about it is how badly it fucks up the tone, though. In the manga, virtually every fight was ended with a joke. The characters had fun, and cared about each other, and so did the readers. The OVA doesn't even attempt this - instead it tries to be gritty and serious and demands to be taken seriously, something which is impossible given the source-material.

The only thing you can praise the OVA on is the animation itself, and the only reason it's better is because it's a lot easier to animate thirteen episodes than forty-eight.

The worst and most truthful thing you can use to criticize it though is that it's made by the same people who were involved in the Phantom Blood movie - the one that was such a resounding failure it's virtually been purged from existence. Part of the reason for this was the lack of Speedwagon, and cutting a major character who probably has the single most overarching influence in the series (after DIO) because you didn't think they were necessary sums up the OVA's issues pretty nicely.

I don't think that's how it works, Anonymous. Remember how much effort went into using it to uncover Diavolo's identity?

Usually most OVA hipsters I see just talk about DIO and that's it. They know the rest of the designs are shit.

Manga DIO > David Part 1 > OVA DIO > David DIO > Manga Part 1

thats my respected opinion anon
David DIO's worse offense was probably how stiff he was unlike the OVA, which I like for how he had more movements and wore decent pants. It's probably a shit argument but it's all I have I'm no animation critic, I'm just here for the ride.

If La Squadra attacked Buccellati's group all at once they could've swept house. It's dumb that they didn't realize trying to 1v6 again and again is a terrible idea. Prosciutto and Pesci are the only duo, and that's because Pesci was new to assassination.

God, seeing the previous Jojos in the part 3 style really shows how ugly SDC was.

Seemed that he only cared about the set-up. They all end up dying in gruesome ways like nothing.
Risotto gets a character profile though. I wonder if Araki had more in mind for them.

Joseph looks great. Jonathan's the one that's shit, and that's not because of the style. Look at how short his arm is and how the muscles make it look even worse, fucking hell.

Really? I think Joseph looks the worst. He looks like a creepy smiling Jotaro with no neck.

>>157510946
I think what he was going for was the first part where the enemies were supposed to be compelling characters with an understandable and noble goal, instead of just being greedy mooks who we cheer over the deaths of.

The end result though is that it seems like a waste of perfectly good characters, particularly given how establishing them took time that could have been used to develop the protagonists. Parts 6, 7 and 8 did it better, some of the villains are memorable but not to the extent that the heroes get left in the dirt.

The constant attacks were annoying. Part 5 had the most fun cast but they barely got any downtime to show it off.

Pretty much. It had the potential to be a truly great part, but the repetitive nature and breakneck pace made it only good.

When do you think JoJo will end? Part 9 with the entire story broken down into 3 separate acts? Part 10 to round it out? Part 47 when Araki finally kicks the bucket?

So how is JoJo supposed to be influential? People always say it is but it seems like most stuff just ripped off Dragon Ball.
>>
Is part 8 finished ? I got into the manga recently and am currently at part 7, I will finish it soon. I don't want to start to read an unfinished part, I like better to have the whole part at once.
>>
>>157475744
Araki himself writing that fucking awful ending to the fight with Diavolo.
>>
>>157513687
Part 8 isn't finished yet, no.

Is there an estimation for when it will be finished ? Also, when is each chapter released ? Every week/month ?

I have bad memory. I'm afraid that I will forget what happened in the previous chapter before reading the new one.
Seeing these Abbachio post reminded me that he's dead but I can't remember how he died even though I read the manga a few weeks ago only.
I have read one unfinished manga but the chapers released every week, so it was easier to remember.

>>157514363
Because it has the best antagonist.
>>
>>157514362
That you're wrong. The anime is shit but the manga versions aren't impressive either.

Yu Yu Hakusho, Hunter x Hunter and Air Gear have clear JoJo influence.
Togashi is admittedly a huge fan and Oh! Great has drawn Killer Queen and referenced Star Platinum in manga too.
>>
>>157514448
Yikes brother that's bad. His death was very plot relevant and took up a full page spread. At least he didn't have a Narancia tier death. Wouldn't blame you for forgetting that
>>
>>157514683
I needed 10 minutes of intense thinking to slightly remember his death. Correct me if I'm wrong; Diavolo kills him on a beach in his native town. He craved Diavolo's face on a stone before dying. How did he die exactly though, I can't remember
This is all I can remember after thinking about it.
>>
>>157514900
Bossu donuts him.
I am disappointed man, his death is probably my favorite in the series, a shame it
