    It's like.

    What if Hol Horse's stand had a drawback.

    And, hilariously, he's one of the most effective part of the crew.

    Mista lends credence to the joke of building up an immunity to bullets by shooting yourself with lower caliber rounds

    It's also hilarious because guns are like, the smallest baby potatoes in any other JoJo series.

    But in the hands of Mista, holy shit it's a gun.

    Sex Pistols is just the bullets and Mista needs an actual gun. The Emperor is the gun and fires magic bullets

    Whoa now.

    They ride on the bullets.

    He needs to use real bullets to get it to work.

    my favorite game is guessing where Mista will pull his next set of bullets from

    his hat?

    his shoe?

    his false tooth that is actually a bullet?

    Sometimes I wonder what part 3 would have been like if Araki went through with his idea of having Hol Horse join the crew

    I don't think it would've worked, but damn it I want to know

    Hol horse was gonna join the stardust crusaders but Araki though his power of having a gun with infinite bullets was too powerful.

    As for the other part 5 boys. (and girl)

    -Fugo does like almost nothing and is fairly uninteresting.
    -I really like Trish but she only gets to have agency like halfway through the story. If she got to do more in the story she'd probably be my favorite character out of the bunch.
    -Narancia is fun but so stupid that it is sometimes genuinely irritating.
    -Bruno is great.
    -Abbacio is just totally unlikable.
    -Giorno is boring and most of his fights are the least interesting fights in part 5. I really hate his stand.

    While part 5 does have weaker characters, especially following part 4, I have really liked the actual plot.

    Fugo
    originally was going to turn traitor and end up being killed by giogio and the gang, but araki didn't have the heart to go through with it

    he eventually got a happier ending in a light novel spinoff

    a neat detail about the part 5 anime is as far as i can tell, every time mista empties his gun at someone, the fourth shot just goes comically off course (even when the show doesn't draw attention to it)

    Abbacchio is good because seeing him flip out every time Giorno does so much as breath next to him is very funny.

    My favorite Guns in Jojo moment is in Part 6
    Seeing Whitesnake, the big badguy's stand, pull out a regular ass gun is the best thing.

    Polnareff was, like, an alpha-test version of Okuyasu

    Okuyasu serves the exact same purpose but is better in every way, and also doesn't have an extremely gross episode dedicated to him

    Four sounds like Death in Japanese and is considered unlucky, like 13 is here.

    That’s why he hates the number four.

    His stand is the most useful utility stand ever. Like power fantasy crap aside. If he he could drive out of his radius he could clean up a couple hundred bucks in a few hours

    I'm okay with rohan's voice

    Okuyasu's original voice is so dang *weird* that I have a hard time coming down too hard on the actor for trying to replicate it. Dude just inexplicably sounds like a middle aged chain smoker

    Koichi'a voice is okay but the acting seems... Not great.

    Okuyasu sounds like Bakugo's VA which is uh, a choice, sure. I just kinda have an idea of what Okuyasu sounds like since the Japanese VA nailed it perfectly.

    Kochi sounds like one of the Game Grumps doing a goofy kid voice.

    Polnareff is a good boy even though just like Kakyoin believing that any of them are actually boys demands more suspension of disbelief than believing in psychic manifestations that mostly defeat each other by punching each other

    I also thought he was genuinely heroic when he had to fight Alessi, even if Alessi's comeuppance served to remind us that the centrally vital element to Jotaro isn't that he's overwhelmingly powerful: it's how his overwhelming power is depicted and made use of in ways that are surprising and hilarious. Polnareff's stand is very much a "gen 1" stand in that its power is really boring ("it's strong and fast and precise! You know, like Jotaro's, except less strong but more fast!")... actually, I'd be hard pressed to think of a stand with LESS interesting powers than Polnareff's.

    Giorno is also just like his dad in that he has powers that are referenced in the opening chapters that never get mentioned ever again.

    after Jotaro and Kakyoin, i assume any character i don't know the age of who doesn't have a literally grey beard or is literally wearing diapers is a teenager in part 3
    I'm not TOTALLY kidding about that, either!
