23 years have passed.
But I...do not age.
Time, has stopped it's effect on me
LONG AGO IN A DISTANT LAND
I, DIO, IMMORTAL EMPEROR OF DARKNESS
UNLEASHED AN UNSPEAKABLE EVIL
BUT, MY FOOLISH BROTHER, WIELDING A HAMON SWORD, STEPPED FORTH TO OPPOSE ME
OLD CHARACTERS IN ARAKI'S CURRENT ART STYLE!
Don't be hating on my nigga Tusk
BEFORE THE FINAL BLOW WAS STRUCK, I TWORE OPEN HIS THROAT AND STOLE HIS BODY
NOW HIS FOOLISH DESCENDENTS SEEK TO COME TO EGYPT, AND UNDO THE EVIL THAT IS DIO
One of the things I like about the OVA is that they made the Justice fight take on a grander scale since it was treated as a season finale.
I like how the anime also gave her extra scenes with DIO to help further establish their dynamic (which also makes her death more tragic).
And yeah she's one of those minor characters Araki really likes to the point he either makes them stick around more or he reinvents them into other characters. While she was defeated quickly, she had a very important role as one of DIO's closest minions and "teacher" and is pretty much the only minor character from Part 3 which got mentioned in other parts.
The OVA had some issues, but it did some things pretty well. While I don't like how drearily serious its atmosphere was, it suited the Enya fight nicely, even though I don't remember her being as funny in the OVA. It's a shame, her foul mouth and insults were one of my favorite things about her.
It's good to see Araki still remembers her, though.
I disliked that the OVA felt the need to turn her into a hot witch most of the time. I guess they felt the need to make her more serious but it kind of lost what made her entertaining to begin with, the idea that this crazy old lady was in fact a powerful Stand user capable of fighting Silver Chariot with scissors.
Araki speaks very nicely of how he came up with her in the Jojonium interviews
>I drew Stand names from Tarot card names, and I had this vague image of a witch-esque fortuneteller in my mind. And if I was to make that character an enemy, then I wanted her to be a scary old woman. Horror movies, which I consider my teachers and textbooks, always have scary old women in them, after all. Just like how vampires appeared in Part 1, JOJO is always deeply connected to horror movies, and this influence is especially apparent in the villains.
>I'm pretty sure I put all the standard elements of horror movies' scary old women into Enyaba. She waits to ambush them with a blade hidden in her hand, and despite how frail she looks, she can somehow run really fast. (Laughs) They're running with all their might, yet when they look back, they see her standing right behind them. That's really scary!
>Looking back, I can remember that I really enjoyed drawing Enyaba, precisely because she was filled with the horror elements that I love. But I'm not sure if she was a fitting enemy for a shonen manga.
>Despite how much I personally liked her, the essence of her character was all about drawing the horrors and strength she possessed as not only a female, but an old woman. And there's no doubt that she became a fitting player in the Jojo world, which centers around Stand battles.
>Lastly, I think that Enyaba is as mentally strong as anyone who can stop time, considering how she was mentally powerful enough to control a town's worth of corpses.
He spends most of his time dealing with the gang, hiding under a blanket or inside Doppio. I don't think hitting the gym is a priority for the boss. He has all the strength he needs with King Crimson
What would happen if Doppio was hit with the arrow when he was in control of the body? Would he get a seperate stand from King Crimson? Because he has an entirely different soul from Diavolo as seen when they went into different bodies, and stands are specific to the soul.
I think any child would break from being presumably abused repeatedly though.
It could be said that it was Diavolo who made him mentally stronger and that had an effect on his soul(he never gave up even when Risotto made him puke razors). He could probably get a stand.
>rehashing both Yotsuyu and superfly in the same arc
>YOU JUST KNOW
>Diavolo got more buff without doing anything over the years
>Doppio was the original personality (named Diavolo)
>Personality splits, Diavolo personality becomes dominant
>Diavolo personality ages normally while Doppio still looks younger than Giorno
Diavolo is a parasitic leech who stole all of Doppio's gains.
Literally the greatest thing araki has ever designed
That ACDC actually doesn't look too bad.
I wonder if he's like a yukkuri and filled with bean paste.
Considering Norisuke was kinda chill with Damo for bit.I assume it's part of the course.
Fruit business is probably more lemony than one would expect.
Well before the swim suit model era of Gappy we had twinky cripples.
And before that we had androgynous men and women and gay priests.
Before that we had twinky gangsters.
Part Four was the move away from muscle.
He immediately understood the nature of the enemy. His snack break was a taunt of sorts, I think.
I just finished part 6 what the fuck was did i just read?
I would honestly have been content with Pucci just killing everyone and winning than what we got. what the heck/
Reminder that Jolyne, Anasui, FF and the others are still dead.
arent they dead in the universe before the reset though? cause the last page shows them all as ghosts, so the implication is that they are "dead" but in the new world they're alive but they're not the same people anymore.
It's something that can be misinterpreted easily, but the fact is even though they died in the original universe, since Emporio killed Pucci in the intermediate universe (before they could die in that universe) their souls got transferred to the new universe (which is just the old universe except Pucci never existed). They are effectively the same people but due to the butterfly effect of Pucci's non-existence they don't have the same name, Jotaro never had to worry about DIO's friend and they still met each other due to gravity.
>Where does the purple in Hermit's Purple come from?
>Purple is a noble color, so I thought it was fitting for an older character.
>Why did you give her "Justice" even though she's an enemy?
>I thought the gap between her character and her Stand would be interesting. Like, "THIS person is Justice?"
There you go
Jonathan - Self righteous dandy
Joseph - Self serving jerk
Jotaro - Disrespectful jerk
Josuke - Schmoozing dandy
Giorno - An actual sociopath holy shit
Jolyne - Unsavory jerk
Johnny - Brooding jerk (yet really the biggest dandy of all)
Gappy the only good JoJo
Holy shit, Golden Experience is a pretty rad song.
Will David fuck up again like they did for 3 and 4, or will they get their shit together and make a good part 5 adaptation?
How did he into the bus though?
Through the top then?
The pacing was a lot better than 3 but that was its only saving grace
When the hell are they gonna release the final Blu-Ray volumes? I wanna see how they 'fixed' the final Kira battle.
Look at the model sheet, this is how he's supposed to look. He's off-model in almost every shot from that episode
I really wished Steel Ball Run had more time in it, he has one of my favorite stands.
>people actually don't know that Giorno is not his real name
There's not that many, Kosaku Kira is off-model for most of the anime.
>believing they are the same people even though they had completely different lives
It's not the worst part because of shit scans, it's the worst part because of shit scans, shit JoJo, shit crew, shit fights, and shit antagonist.
Again, you haven't actually even said what his "real name" is
Are you retarded? It's in the first chapter of part 5
these people just don't fucking learn
>"There was a possibility that DIO may have had a child"
>DIO actually had multiple mongrel children
Is Araki a hack?
Is Diamond the most QUALITY anime this decade? Constant off-models, constant QUALITY, stilted animation, over saturated color palette, little to no actual animation. How do people like this shit?
Jojo is known for his "lack" of unnecessary fanservice, but then we got random shit like this, wtf?
>The JoJo wiki thought that was a good image to put as an visualization of the Kosaku's appearence of Kira
To be fair he looks like shit throughout the entire anime so it's not like they had many better options
>Part 5 was once considered a piece of shit no-one even cared about enough to translate properly
>Then when the good scans started catching up, it began being treated as a sacred cow by overzealous fans who'd throw fits and start shit with anyone who dared criticize any aspect of it
>Now it's largely considered just like any other part, with people able to talk about its merits and its flaws respectfully
Personally I believe the two personalities were there from birth.
>Doppio/Diavolo's mother takes twice as long to birth a single baby
>Doppio was the original personality
>traumatic event that is heavily hinted at but never cleared as to what is happens and Diavolo awakens
>Diavolo becomes dominant and begins covering up his past, burning down his hometown
>Diavolo ages normally
>Doppio is brought back when Diavolo needs an underboss, hasn't aged a bit and has forgotten everything due to how long it has been
I still believe that the "how could Diavolo be conceived" thing its explained because he was conceived during skipped time. That one theory about KC possessing him since the beggining its credible for me.
Do you think Araki draws yaoi that he doesn't show to anyone?
>I still believe that the "how could Diavolo be conceived" thing its explained because he was conceived during skipped time.
This would require:
A) A man being able to undress himself, fuck Diavolo's mother and cum within ten seconds to avoid drawing her suspicion
B) A fucking sperm-cell having a stand as powerful as King Crimson
He was happy showing everyone those SBR covers
How do you feel about them? Do you think SO had a good crew?
I don't give a fuck I was just wanted to share this OC
>What is Berserk 2016?
Imagine if the CG was done
I think Diavolo has Doppio's memories. He literally doesn't know anything except what Diavolo has told him.
I think the episode right after was the peak of part 4's animation
>What is Blazblue After Memory
How do manage to fuck up even worse than gonzo with the CS in game animated scenes?
While I get it's not perfect, I still had alot of fun with the DiU and it made me look back on part 4 a little bit better than I had done.
Little touches like Matured Kira's hair were neato and the I still listen to a chunk of the
I think back to Soul Eater where you could have it stylish but it takes really weird bends away from the manga. Part 4 didn't need that treatment. Or you could have other Anons examples of trash. Middle ground is not a bad deal.
David puts way too much effort into scenes that don't really need it
>araki's artstyle changed from muscular 80s shounen to skinny twinks to skinny more semi-realistic same face twinks
>araki goes from skinnyfat fetishist to all out fat fetishist
>muscular to skinny to fat
it's a good series but it's pretty memey
DmonHiro for part 1-2
Some-stuffs for Part 3
HS for Part 4 (You could download the BDs from Xen-Raws and just put the Diamond is Fixed subs on)
Which JoJo gives the best blowjobs?
Different anime, but Sagrada Reset is absolutely HORRIBLE for going off-model. Characters have different faces every other shot. It's bad enough to be distracting.
It's the hard truth. Davidpro is not capable of making the 10/10 sakuga anime Jojo deserves. I'd like to say "at least they stick to the story" but fuck, I don't think tweaked plot details would be as infuriating as DIO's World or KQ's reveal.
The presentation has declined with each season; Part 1 and 2 looking the best and Part 4 looking the worst. Let's hope Part 5 breaks the chain.
inb4 Part 5 is the worst yet, seeing as it's so action-heavy. You can't just copy paste panels when everything needs to be moving.
Part 2 was full of shit animation in the original TV version, though.
Pic unrelated, obviously. Forgot to add that.
>I liked the anime
>I was here for when it ended and everyone was talking about how much fun they'd had watching and posting about it
>Now those people have all left and the only people left are intent on stewing in a sea of negativity
I don't actually care all that much if 5 is animated about as well as 4, I just hope it gets announced and starts pretty soon so those people come back because my god, you guys aren't very fun or interesting to talk to.
This is not ok.
This is not what perfection should look like.
I like the anime too but I'm not gonna deny all its flaws. I just remain silent, since those fags are so determined to make you feel bad for liking something because it's so far from perfect. They will dismiss any opposing opinion just because the animation isn't good.
>"The anime is just fun and I liked it"
>">muh fun" "You liking this piece of garbage doesn't justify how shit it is, STOP DEFENDING DAVID"
>boohoo oh boohoo why are people insulting my favorite anime? ; ((
Davidpoo can't even stick to one way of drawing lips, low-test :^D They don't deserve to be praised or taken seriously.
I'm not "memeing" kiddo, Davidpoo is shit :^)
Bet you said the same thing to your big bad high school bullies when they started shitting on you on your Facebook profile. Too bad you got beat up by them when you returned to school the next day anyway :^D
The Davidpoo defense force has arrived :^D Face it, the anime is shit. Get some critical sense and stop sucking David's dick
I like the SO crew. They might even be my favorite crew so far (Just started Steel Ball Run). I just wish there was as much downtime and banter between the members as there was during Part 3. That would help solidify the dynamics of the group. Besides being a team that is trying to stop Pucci, I feel like you don't really get a sense of the members' personalities like you do in other parts. Besides Jolyne, FF, and maybe Weather Report, the other characters seem to lack character development.
I thought they were very good. As a team they were something of a step down from 5, because some of them never really communicated with the others (Hermes had nothing to do with Weather and Anasui, for instance) but all of them had great and varied interactions with Jolyne. That was one thing they unquestionably did better than 5, where Giorno NEVER tried to get to know or have fun with his companions, or showed that he liked them as people until they died.
More examples of the anime sucking the personality out of the original manga panels
Why am I still here?
Just to suffer?
Everynight I can feel Narancia, his pics and even his hair.
The posts I've lost, the wife I lost it won't stop hurting.
It's like he's still here.
I'm going to make them give back my past.
Nothing really. But here are the cliffnotes.
He touched up on JoJo before working on movie.
He talks about the setting for the movie and why he chose Stiges Spain, "People may make a city, but in fact the city is making people".
Why he made it a suspense movie.
And about the development of the characters and how they awaken with the need to protect the town.
>mind reading is not cheating
What did he mean by this?
As far as anime or at least idol CG goes, I'd say it's pretty good.
Compare to anything from LL for example: http://archive.quad.moe/quadfile/file/869B9E.webm
>Anasui is one dimensional
>Ermes has shit arcs and is irrelevant
>Weather Report is incestuous Jotaro
>Emporio is another bland kid character
>FF is the only good one and died early on
Part 6 stinks.
When is Araki going to make a new stand cry? I don't think we had a different one since part 5.
Gyro put up on Medicos.
Do you think he cucks them one at a time or is it just one big orgy?
>FF is not in ASB OR EoH
This is criminal, all of Bamco should be collectively hanged
crazy diamond would be pretty useful
Maybe he uses it to fuck himself?
I legitimately never thought about that possibility before
I'm in the same boat. I think they were a great crew but they also just didn't have enough time for everyone to interact with each other. For example, I can't remember if Ermes and Weather even had a full conversation. It kinda felt like Jolyne, FF and ermes were their own crew while Weather, Annasui, and Emporio were their own thing for most of part 6.
I'm honestly very curious as to how it'd feel. It'd kinda be like sticking your dick in your own ass but it's not really, wouldn't it?
Probably like feeling the effects of fucking someone in the ass while also being fucked in the ass. But there would be a slight difference as doing it with real people would be much more crowded than if it was 1 guy and his stand.
I never thought I would think this much about self-incestuos gay buttsex with a manifestation of your soul.
Useful for killing everyone around you sure. But if you didn't want to take the chance of killing people you care about, another stand like Star Platinum would be infinitely more useful.
>ywn experience this
I don't know why I even bother with living.
Also, nice trips.
That would literally be the worst stand if a 2 meter ranged stand release a cloud of deadly virus for 3 meters and you arent immune. You could just have Star Platinum stop your own heart or something
There's no need to apologise, anon-kun. This is simply the harsh reality of living in the real world.
David really do have the passion for this series but my word are they a bottom of the fucking barrel studio. I appreciate the effort they've put into their adaptations but we need a studio with more experience and also for Warner to give them a bigger budget.
Part 5 fights will look cool as fuck when animated. Let's hope we get a different studio or at least that David gets their shit together.
Notice how little actual animation there was compared to 3 and 4 though. It was a slideshow for the most part but a really fucking slick and well directed one. Comparatively they had more cash to do 3 and 4 but not enough to keep up that quality all throughout. Not to mention 1 and 2 together was one season of 26 episodes whereas 3 and 4 have been longer, even if 3 was done in 2 seasons each one was almost as long as 1 and 2 put together and there was likely less money for each individual season than for the entirety of 1 and 2 put together since it was conceived as 2 seasons from the beginning, and Warner likely on't just give them twice as much money for a series that's twice as long, they'd give them like 1.5 times as much cash and tell them to spread it thinner. Time is also something they seem to lack, Great Days aired unfinished in episode 27 and the ED was unfinished back in episode 2 as well.
They had a limited budget and this was a 36 episode anime. So they have to outsource shit. Even then it's all fixed in the BDs so who cares.
Are all Jojo threads on /a/ this bad? Ungrateful fucks.
A new page has been added to the movie's site.
While exploring the town, you can find videos from the director and photos of the movie shoot.
>studios with more experience
>ever animation Jojo at all
They had 30 years to do so and not a single studio picked it up outside the worst HnK wankers possible for some shitty OVAs. Be grateful for what you have and fuck off.
What would your stand be?
>The ability to instantly understand/know how a situation could/should/would have been prevented after it's happened
I'm scared of spiders, so it wouldn't be so much rebel yell, as yelling "why, god, why".

So is vague
Your power is lowering your Power stat which somehow causes your Potential to grow, thus allowing you to get random new powers, or allowing your other stats to increase randomly. At least that's what I understood.
