What are the stupidest things people said/wrote about Jojo?
Probably some shit like "David is good"
I had to put some low-test secondaries in their place. Hopefully they won't come to this thread
That's the truth, though. The anime is dogshit and if you got into JoJo through it then you're part of the people who have smeared the reputation of this fanbase
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.
How would he fare at the end of part 3?
THIS. Part 4 is moeshit. Part 1-3 were manime while 4 is just filler moeshit, no different from trash like Lucky Star
>Manga has a cool, confident, and dismissive Kira looking down on a Jotaro spurting blood and shaking in a struggle to stay upright
>Anime has a dollar store David Bowie doll maniacally smiling and staring at a bloodied Jotaro taking a momentary breather
The really static and unexpressive poses help too.
>mfw there was more fat-art of your husbando than there was porn.
I'm glad deviantart has never stopped being a bastion of quality content.
Remember when it had a David Productions face?
>JoJo Anime season 1 had animation problems because it didn't have a big enough budget
>JoJo Anime season 2 had animation problems because it had too many episodes
>JoJo Anime season 3 had animation problems because there wasn't a break in airing
I hope they try to avoid animation problems in season 4.
it also had bad character designs that didn't look like the manga. Bottom pic is what part 4 should've looked like
Did you watch the live footage of Narancia and I destroying the Davidfags? I gave him a rimjob afterward
He even pushed it back multiple times up to the 18th for when the JJL chapter comes out so everyone would see it.
>implying the BD fixed the Deadly Queen scene
Actually tumblr and the small circle of twitter nips are the only place for content. I suppose it's the benefit of hoarding a vague edgy shithead.
Deviantart is where the weird garbage shit is for him.
Of course I do, Terence. The pixiv downloader addon is a blessing.
It's just the nip twitter circle updates at least daily because they are always drawing each other gifts and such.
Pixiv rarely updates now, I don't even check Jobin's tag anymore because it's easier to search on twitter.
They both still look like shit.
And Kira spends the entire series looking off-model. The previous parts didn't fuck up nearly as bad with their characters.
>people who have not read the manga
>whether or not they watched the anime
You mean there could be people in this thread RIGHT NOW who are just into JoJo for the memes and just know everything from the wiki?
Can we agree that the Stardust Crusaders Anime was at least better than the 2000s OVA?
Twitter is a real pain if you don't know artists/have a list. But when you have to same 4-5 people who always retweet each other, you don't miss a thing. I wish a couple of them would do what Cho does and just bulk upload
I did see! I fell asleep and the thread archived. And I'd just want more solo stuff.
I'm the only one who seems draw solo and slightly more guro stuff other than the nice /y/ anon. I see so much god damn shota secco.
One of my Cio-liking friends is also a pateron of Gariks. He only has 2 more asks go through so hopefully we'll get a non-ugly ass piece from him.
>In terms of animation quality. No.
Well, obviously not.
It's unfair to compare the animation quality of the OVA (which has only 7 episodes to spread its budget across) to the anime (which has 48 episodes to spread its budget across).
>Busy restoring a lost Gappy doodle because there were barely any photos online
Perhaps I didn't search hard enough.
why is there a sudden rise in anti-Davidfags? Is it the same three people or have these threads gone contrarian again by cherrypicking QUALITY scenes and claiming the entire anime's bad?
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.
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'.
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.
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.
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.
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.
>Virtually all of that falls under the 'nice teenage girl' umbrella.
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.
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.
>Implying rock fuckers are people
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.
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.
Why the fuck did DP think fucking with Araki's art style was a good idea? It's not like they're incapable since Part 3 looked really close to how the manga did. They better not pull the same shit with part 5.

Well, just a moment ago you were disagreeing.

Anasui. Her personality isn't even dependent on Josuke.
Guess we're down to little more than opinions now though and that can't really be argued about.
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.
>her personality isn't shown to be much beyond 'nice teenage girl'
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
>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.
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
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.
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.
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.
>Better than Tomoko who has a sweet and funny relationship with her son
>Better than Yukako who was the villain of one arc and the protagonist of another
That certainly is an opinion.
>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
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.
Trish crashed a plane with no survivors, and her antics while in Mista's body were pretty funny. It's more than what Lisa Lisa got.
>Killed one shitty vampire
>Got tricked and fucked over
>Spent the final fight unconscious and being used to manipulate Joseph
>Had a flashback which reveals the tweest of her being his mother
And the nipple scene >>>>>>> the bath scene.
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.
Nonsense. She has already risked her life before. If Josuke died she'd sure as hell want to finish what he started.
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.
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 '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.
Do you get it? Do you understand what I'm saying?
Nah, when she first came out of it she looked like her Xenomorph form. It gradually changed to be more humanoid until it looked exactly like Etroe with different colours.
The retranslations are definitely helping. Though I think a lot of people are missing out because they aren't easily accessible.
The inevitable anime will be the biggest help for it.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
What are you even talking about it's pretty common knowledge that the Japanese ate up the whole DIO'S SON galavanting across Italy and fighting mobsters a lot more than the condensed small town serial killer mystery with SoL elements.
Part 4 is popular but Part 5 is considered 'thr best' or right under part 3
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.
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.
>projecting stuff like Yasuho's relationships with her friends onto her
>projecting her behaviour onto her character
>this is somehow wrong
>confusing Yasuho's inner emotional reasoning with her motivation
>these are somehow not the same thing
What the fuck am I reading? I understand completely what you mean by "her role in the story is to help Josuke" but first off, how is that bad? And even then, it's pretty well explained. She also doesn't JUST help Josuke, you're blowing things out of proportion.
>Jotaro's story focuses on his adventures, the friends he makes, and the things that he does.
Not him, but does Yasuho not have adventures, does Yasuho not become friends with Tsurugi, does Yasuho not do any things?
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.
Cazy Diamond is the best to me. I even bought a figure.

No. He does not have contempt for all women because they're women. Not having a mother or mother figure during his childhood was pretty obviously damaging though, every single relationship he's had with women have been especially disastrous.

>I autistically snatch her camera and take her picture instead
>She rapes me like papa but it feels good
Why cut Fugo out of the fight he was supposed to be in? I mean if absolute zero kills every single living thing then his viruses would be useless anyway so he'd have to hide. Then at the end he could brutally beat Ghaccio down instead of Giorno while Giorno heals Mista's wounds. I mean it would've at least been something for Fugo
>She rapes me like papa but it feels good
Fugo in White Album would've been great, him and Ghiacchio would have hilarious interactions.
But then again, White Album is excellent the way it is, so I don't how he'd fit into the battle dynamic.
Obviously the best husbando is the one with the best ass.

He's best husbando for me

Kira's my favorite villain,Ringo's my favorite minor villain but i find Jobin more fascinating how he deconstructs a lot Villain Tropes for the series and even more so if he's the main antagonist
I wanted to post the beach boy one, but I can't find it
Does anyone have the exact panel where F.F. gets BTFO'd by Pucci
>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.
that fucking filename
Not too long ago there were so many Abbacchio posters, now it's always that pesky Bossu.
I don't think that's how it works, Anonymous. Remember how much effort went into using it to uncover Diavolo's identity? It also couldn't just magically solve all of the riddles he sent the crew about Trish's location. It wouldn't be hard to write or imagine Moody Blues in a more mystery-based part unless you were really boring or dumb.
Risotto is OVERrated.
>Looks like Abbacchio 2.0, has a black long leather jacket with cross-shaped stitching over his exposed chest, a star-shaped cap thing, a belt-buckle of the first letter of his name and flared pants
>Is an incompetent dunderfuck who sent his men to their deaths one by one repeatedly
>Can't even manage to kill a fucking incompetent like Doppio
>Gets shot to death by shitty Aerosmith because he wasn't paying attention
>Ends up being used by Diavolo to help him create a distraction to kill Abbacchio, nearly succeeding in hiding his identity anew
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.
It doesn't look as bad in the Anthology CD art.
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.
Yeah, I was saying OVA had decency. I think the generic pants suit him better.
>He looks like a creepy smiling Jotaro with no neck
Each art style only works with its part. Mixing them doesn't really work
>What are the stupidest things people said/wrote about Jojo?
David's part 1 Dio is a major qt, I want to hug him. PB manga Dio looks weird at first, but he has a sort of beautiful look later in the manga.
I think the indecent pants are suit him, they make him look like the slut he is
and I find that appealing.
Piss off Giorno
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.
>Jojo is just a bunch of guys screaming at each other for 20 minutes
>Phantom Blood is bad, skip it and go straight to Battle Tendency for the apex of Jojo
>So how is JoJo supposed to be influential?
As long as it makes me happy.
Read it and join the discussion with us senpai, it's a good time.
>the apex of jojo
that just makes me think of it like pic related.
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.
Because it has the best antagonist.
It has influenced
the way my dick reacts to slutty vampires.
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.
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
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.
