In the late 19th century there was a very large boy, his name was Jonathan Joestar and he was a good boy but a dim boy, and he was a little rich boy
and then in comes this prince among men, Dio Brando, to usurp his place within his family and claim his inheritance through all sorts of duplicity like definitely not killing a dog who is for sure still alive, then one thing leads to another and he becomes an immortal vampire god, you know how it be sometimes, and Jonathan has to learn magic yoga to defeat him, and then does
50 years later we move ahead to the greatest man in all of history, Jonathan Joestar's grandson Joseph, who's a trickster asshole and an overall little shit, but he and his husband Caesar step up with even more magic yoga powers to win the day and predict what people are going to say
50 years after THAT we move even further down the line to JOSEPH's grandson Jotaro, the most ungrateful garbage man who ever wore a hat, and he looks at the magic yoga and says "magic yoga? that's for losers!" and decides to retcon the series with the new way people punch each other, psychic Pokemon called Stands that everyone now has and only 40-80% of them will be music references, and he has to journey across the world to defeat the now-returned Dio
a decade later we now follow the next JoJo Josuke, who looks silly but is purely the best lad with a heart of gold, and you can tell that because he wears one on his lapel, and he and his friends in his small town of Moiroh have to band together to stop a looming threat in the town
I...don't know what their deal is
I haven't gotten there yet OKAY there's a LOT leave me ALONE
PS this thread is a Polnareff-free zone if you are or you know a Polnareff you have to state that ahead of time and it will be dealt with accordingly
I keep waiting for a character called Iggy to arrive, I'd better not be disappointed.
Also Jojo in this one is kind of a shit but Matt Mercer is as charming as ever so I don't mind him
Joseph and Caesar were the best and I'm mad they didn't get to sail off into the sunset. No wonder old Joseph is so grumpy.
It’s so sinister! I knew there was a reason it always opened with Kira!
His name is Oreo, but he will be called Iggy the whole time he is with us.
I will post pictures. Also blame all farts on him.
I am leaning towards “very yes”
Junes jingle vs Morioh Radio jingle.
No we do not
I mean I don’t disagree with this but there’s something about Dio being an immense shithead that works really well
Like you meet Kira on the street you’d probably figure he’s just A Dude
You see Dio and it’s immediately like oh that guy just fucking sucks
you get that motherfucker, kid!!
I want him to solve the whole thing on his own and Josuke never even matters
these characters are supposed to be British, right? At least Dio and Jonathan are. Since I watched the subbed version it all just made sense that everything was supposed to be interpreted as English rather than Japanese. So Dio would just be saying "useless! useless! useless!"
But in the manga, he literally just says muda muda and there's a translator's note saying that he's saying 'useless' in Japanese.
Dio is such a dickhead he learned how to say 'useless' in Japanese and thought oh, that sounds awesome, I'ma use that.
He's better than DIO but not Dio Brando
There’s an RPGMaker game out there called “The Seventh Stand User”, which is pretty well-regarded. It’s done in the style of Final Fantasy Legends, with tiny overworld sprites and considerably more detailed art in the battles. The game is in black and white, so that it can keep the aesthetic of the manga panels in the fights.
It takes place during the events of Stardust Crusaders, with you playing as a seventh Stand user that wasn’t in the original story. It assigns you a Stand from a pool of 18 after a personality quiz, and each one has different effects in and out of battle.
From what I have heard, it’s got a fairly large number of alternate scenarios and endings depending on what you do to change the course of the story. It also throws in some characters and plot elements from earlier and later parts just for funsies.
I’ve been playing it recently, and have found it to be pretty neat. Though I’m not very far in; I’m just before the boss fight with Polnareff in China. My character ended up with the Stand Quicksilver, which is basically an arm-mounted cannon that uses minerals as fuel to shoot stuff like sunlight, fire, and water jets. Other stands I know of from the game include Deep Purple, which controls the atmosphere in a short range around it, and Pixies, which uses little fairy things to control objects and move the earth.
That sounds awesome, I'll have to check it out.
I feel like the one thing that would be really hard to do in a videogame version of JoJo is adapt the "Oh, it was my plan the entire time to be kicked in the nuts!" thing.
(this scene, I'm watching the dub)
Netflix only has the first 2 and I need more.
At least Bite it first. Get them juices.
If you've got Amazon Prime, you can get a free month through Twitch.
Jonathan drinks straight up black coffee
Joseph drinks espresso, like, a LOT (but only American coffee!!)
Jotaro drinks black coffee but secretly puts a LOT of sugar in it
Josuke drinks with as much cream and sugar in it as possible
Giorno drinks, I dunno, frappucino?
It’s...kind of perfect, by the standards this dumbass series sets?
Giorno drinks tea.
I feel like there’s a bit too much meandering with random stand users in the midsection. But the setting lets those random stand users offer very different scenarios than Stardust Crusaders could. Like, the Tonio episode is basically completely filler. But it’s one of my favorites.
The dub of part one he says USELESSUSELESSUSELESS
The dub of part 3 he says Mudamudamudamudamuda
Because he’s talking to Jotaro, who speaks Japanese.
