Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders- The Road to Egypt

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders- The Road to Egypt

Only half of the journey is over.

I was extremely biased towards Part 1 and 2’s adaptations that I really never gave any of them a full talk about them back then. Part 3 however is the most widespread part of the series and is also the most iconic so I figured I should give my two-cents on the adaptation. This post shall be a quick recap of the final episode and my thoughts on the adaptation so far and my expectations for the coming conclusion.

Side note: Dandy and SAO are up while Blade Dance will be a two parter.

The real ride begins January

Space Dandy 2 Episode 10- Love Burns Scarlet

Space Dandy 2 Episode 10- Love Burns Scarlet

Dandy increases the significant female count and gives Scarlet her very episode.

All those times I wondered why exactly Scarlet and Honey showed up in the opening alongside the main crew in the montages. I mean yes, they are the most frequently reoccurring members of the cast but they never really got the spotlight other than to be at a certain location to bring in the certain kind of humor. In both of their cases, they got slight development in the Cloudian episode but Scarlet gets her time here.

So let’s get funky with it.

Late

Earthbound 4

Work piles up for me near the end of the week so it gets a bit more hectic trying to get these in on time. Thankfully enough, I already got a few posts written out and just need to be finalized so if anything I’m usually kept up. The first half of Jojo Part 3 ends this week but I think Fall will be decent enough to get me through it. Other series like Dandy will reach its end as well and I’ll be sad to see it go. You can wait for the rest of my judgments when the season ends of course.

I’ve been playing Dark Crusade again for a while and I’ve had the worst habit of accidentally saving over my latest save files (this has happened twice) so I’m on an aggravated third playthrough of a race of my choice again. I hate repeating things so this is especially frustrating. On another note, I’ve been hunting episodes of Galaxy Angel but have found no luck other than the complete 1st season. The GA II posts will reach their conclusions from me too. It’s just that I want them to be nicely spaced out.

On a final note on what’s going on, I’ve ordered a figure and two artbooks coming my way so I’ve got some things to look forward too.

We’re still on the Earthbound train and this week’s theme is Onett’s theme, the iconic town where Ness hails from. There’s a lot of memory to be had with this theme.

Mini-Sword Art Online II Episode 9- The Final Fight better be worth it

Mini-Sword Art Online II Episode 9- The Final Fight better be worth it

I keep ending up renaming SAO II posts into the Mini category because of the talking instead of the action going on. Now while that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it involves a character that’s getting himself better writing as the series goes along and a character who I objectively like but subjectively hate because I don’t like Miyuki Sawashiro’s voice being part of a harem.

That aside, these extended dialogues that are meant to have somewhat deeper meanings/feelings aren’t making too big of an impact on me and end up being a lot shorter than I would want them to be.

Oh well, like the title suggests, I really hope the last fight is something around the lines of the opening.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 23- We All Live In A…

The last stretch before the horizon.

We’ve got a week before I’m left with no fabulous Jojo. While I know the break is well deserved, I can only imagine how well they will animate the superior leg of fights before we reach DIO’s mansion. To get there though, the Joestar will have to do one more crazy stunt with another set of transportation before reaching their destination.

Surprise surprise. While I don’t exactly remember Suzi getting that much showtime in the manga, she gets a hefty scene today.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Episode 8- What now?

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Episode 8- What now?

You couldn’t get more cliche than this.

Also, what the hell is the series going to do now with the only other male elementalist getting detained at the end? Another thing, do the subbers really have to call it Elemantalers? Why can’t it just be Elementalist?

They also did the most cliche thing ever in this episode too. I thought Kamito was decent enough for handling the possessive girls but then he pulls the “We’re strong because we’re a team!” thing and I just had to stop the episode and take a breather before continuing.

Hell the fight with Jio was pathetic too. Restia shows up in blade form but he gets wrecked anyway.

Closing in.

Earthbound 2

I realized that I’m looking forward to the Fall Season series but the only series I’m actually looking at are Chaika and Fate. I’m sad to see Jojo go on break but Egypt will be worth the wait. Other than that, not much else going on than just replaying some SNES games on the go while I fit in League and GA between work.

We’ve got around a month left before the season ends and I honestly can’t wait for that because this seasons was pretty lackluster. Thankfully Jojo was around to liven that up but if it weren’t for my other gaming projects, this summer was just dreadfully empty. For that reason, I was thinking of picking up Akame Ga Kill but what’s the point if I’m already spoiled on the character deaths?

We’re going to chug through the more memorable tracks of Earthbound and I’m not going to limit this to just a few tracks so bear with me if you’re not a fan. This time it’s the theme that plays with the Bee from the future telling you of your great destiny to purge evil.
