Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 17- Beatdown

I’ve waited years for this moment and I was not disappointed.

Steely Dan’s dickish moves finally reach its glorious end when Jotaro delivers a satisfying barrage of absolute pain in form of a 22-second combo of ORA ORA. Many people agree that this fight is the beginning of the part where Stardust Crusaders actually gets good. I can agree with that as we’re in for a joke of a fight next week while we will most likely see one of the even more memorable fights in the series. After that, we’re almost toward Egypt where the fights get even better. Truly a time to be a live for a Jojo fan.

I’ve also decided to update with Jojolion Chapters since they come out every month so that definitely fits in my schedule. Look out for that Read the rest of this entry

Well I guess I have to wait a week before the famous scene comes up.

I don’t particularly remember Steely Dan’s fight being long enough to be a two-parter but the episode has convinced me otherwise. Looks like they really did need two episodes to get it done. I believe around 3-4 Tarot Stand users are left before we arrive at Egypt a little over a month’s time since there is definitely going to be two-parter fights again before we get to Egypt.

With that said, let’s cover the rather short episode of Steely Dan and the Lovers.

The conclusion of the Justice Arc

I really have to hand it to David Productions for making such a fine adaptation. Some of you may not know but Part 3 is essentially the Part 1 of the Stand-related Parts. I’ve been enjoying a lot of the fights from that manga that were honestly somewhat boring. While Justice wasn’t definitely boring, I’m just glad to have such a devoted crew make a relatively weak Part of the series into something so enjoyable.

That aside, let’s wrap up the fight.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 14- Spooky skull thing in the sky, totally not suspicious

Love how Jotaro, the guy who usually is the one who identify the Stand user before anyone else, brings to attention some skull forming in the sky but no one does anything. You think with all the shit they went through that they would take that as a sign of warning. Oh well, it’s Jojo, and it’s Part 3 so I can forgive it.

We’re actually nearing another funny fight after the Justice fight and after a few more, we’ll be at Egypt. Also before we start, allow me to give my thoughts on the first episode of the dub since I was unable to get to Episode 2-3

  1. Jotaro is supposed to sound like a teenager who legitimately wants to be left alone and if anything has the indifferent tone. In the english dub, he sounds a bit more angsty since his pitch got moved up a bit.
  2. Avdol legitimately sounds African in my ears so that’s a good thing. English dubbed animes sometime attempt to imitate the accents depending on the character’s backgrounds and Avdol’s isn’t that bad. However, Avdol’s gratuitous english isn’t as charming when he’s speaking English.
  3. Joseph’s voice actor got the aged thing pretty good but he sounds a bit younger than he has to. That’s nitpicky but in my opinion it’s pretty decent.
  4. Holly is just Holly, whether she does a good job or not, she won’t be showing up for a while. That being said, Dub VA’s have a hard time voicing little girls so 40+ year old woman probably wasn’t the hardest thing to do.

DIO didn’t get enough lines for me judge and Kakyoin won’t be judged just yet. From what I hear, the ORA ORA is weak, but that’s not surprising. I will await to see how Emerald Splash and DIO will sound like (not that anyone can beat Koyasu but I honestly respect Partrick Seitz)

One the less memorable fights in my opinion becomes a pretty entertaining episode.

I was genuinely surprised at they handled this, I had no idea the fight was this fun back when I read Part 3. Some people still consider it a lesser fight but nonetheless, it’s exciting to see it in animated form. I really need to stop reviewing the episode before I even talk about it. We’re around 2-4 Stands away from reaching the halfway point of the series. Did you think getting to Eygpt was tough? Wait til you all see the Egyptian God Stand users.

Oh by the way, have some Jotaro laughing

Anyway, Wheel of Fortune. Let’s rock

Was in California this weekend, sorry for the delay.

Not as exciting or emotional as the fight beforehand but Joseph still shows that he still has the mindset. I mean, for a guy who delayed death being dealt from an immortal being could probably deal with something like the Empress on his arm. Unfortunately, his Stand is still not suited for hard-combat so we won’t see too much Joseph exclusive episodes for a while.

That being said, next week’s fight isn’t so amazing either. However, it still has a very memorable line so I guess I’ll look foward to that. Also, good news for me and other Jojo fans as David Productions has announced today that Part 3 will be airing all year long as 4 cours and will cover every fight. It’s official so nothing for me to fear anymore.

Let’s get on with this though, we’ll talk about the good stuff when we get to it.

Thus concludes one of my favorite “fights” in Part 3.

From what Enya and Rubber Soul told us, we only have a few more Tarot Stands after the Joestar crew. Looking on the episode count though, I’d say it’s very certain we’ll get one more season full of episodes since by the time we reach Egypt, we still got a few more fights before we reach DIO. Hell, that fight should take arond 2-3 episodes too since it’s two fights in one.

Anyways, let’s get to the Emperor and the Hanged Man Part 2.
