Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 3- LET’S GO!

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 3- LET’S GO!

Going exactly as I feared, this episode was an explanatory episode than a fighting one. That being said, this is Jojo, where explanations themselves are outrageous and stylistically silly. With the explanation episode now out of the way, nothing is stopping the hypetrain from plowing through the chapters and beating up enemy Stand users for the next 20+ weeks.

The ending (song) definitely caught A LOT of people off guard. When you stop to think about it though, it was sad of us as a fanbase to not consider this as an option. The only problem I see with it is that Roundabout set up so much atmosphere with its opening chords but this song might have to be altered or changed if we get to the more dramatic/suspenseful parts of Part 3.

Enough talking though, I got more things to post for you guys so let’s get straight into it

Update on Week 1 of Spring 2014

Update on Week 1 of Spring 2014

Series were getting dropped like flies so it really wasn’t worth the post. Allow me to just very quickly summarize what’s going on for this season and why it’s going to be like it is.

Let’s get the easier stuff out of the way

  1. Jojo is being watched. There was not any doubt over this.
  2. DAL is being watched for the sole reason of the artist behind the series.
  3. Nisekoi’s manga is getting worse with each chapter but the anime is something that I’ve already committed to watching.
  4. Mahouka is being watched so I can poke fun at Light FOREVER.

I’m not going to count the new DAL episode because it was an anime original to give retrospect to what transpired in the first season. No need for me to repeat what they’re explaining.

Now let’s get to the fun part.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 2- EMERALD SPLASH

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 2- EMERALD SPLASH

I will be absolutely frank with all of you.

The hype train for Part 3′s opening was essentially in orbit by the time it aired. Unfortunately, previous hype and expectations set by Bloody Stream made it near impossible it for this opening to have any sort of chance. Not saying that the opening was bad in any case, but I think BS had itself a stylish and groovy tune that set it apart from other openings. This however sounds very common and regular in terms of “Jojo” standards. You know, with Jotaro’s dad being a parody of a jazz musician, I would have expected something jazzy but I guess not.

Not to say my expectations were completely killed, it’s still a balling opening but the only weakness I see that could fix this would be it’s chorus. The visuals and quite literally everything other than the chorus was amazing. Since this is a 2 cour series from what I’m hearing, I think it’s safe to say we’ll get another version of this or a completely new song at the halfway point.

Oh well, I’ll get used to the song and hype over it eventually but let’s get to it

IT’S HERE

I’m telling you, no other week seemed THIS lengthy. The week wasn’t really filled with too many things to do but by god, I cannot imagine a busy week while waiting for new episodes. As you can tell, I’m unfortunately going to suffer from this mental drawback of waiting every week for new episodes but…damn.

Enough talk though, let’s finally begin the most iconic saga in the entirety of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6: Stone Ocean

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6: Stone Ocean

“Didn’t you once say that everything should have a name? Stone Free…I want to free myself from this Stone Ocean!”

A while ago I posted my Favorite Jojo characters that excluded Parts 7-8 since I wanted to keep it everything within the more well-known universe. I mentioned that it had been a long time since I read Part 6 and exempted some characters from the list. I have since reread Part 6 and now I feel like an idiot for admitting that I forgot stuff from Part 6 when this particular saga happens to be the most eventful. So for that blunder I made, I think owe Part 6 an apology and its own post to honor it. Fate may have played into this but the 7th of December happens to be its release date so happy 10th birthday to you Stone Ocean.

So were he go folks, a “review” that is a decade late, let’s talk about the sixth saga of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Follow-Up on The Future of Jojo’s Anime

Follow-Up on The Future of Jojo’s Anime

Being the fool I am (heh, the Fool) I completely forgot to go into detail on the other parts of Jojo so this mini-post should clear things up.

So from what I said last time, the future of the animation seemed a bit uncertain on the parts of technicality as the lengths from Part 3 and onwards are nearly twice the amount of Part 1 and Part 2.  Regular anime schedules will not be able to fit the series into the seasonal episodic formula of 12 episodes to 26 episodes. I ended up by concluding that Jojo from now on, starting from Part 3, should adopt the episodic formula of many shounen series that air at this time. Examples of this include (for those of you who don’t pay attention to shounen anymore) Naruto, Gintama, etc.

So now allow me to elaborate on why such precautions should be taken.

Spoilers ahead (slight) on Parts 3-6. 7 and 8 will be dealt with if the animation keeps going, but by then, they probably got the formula down.
