Rewatchables Part 2- New and Old

Round Two of Which Series Do I Bother Downloading Again In Bluray, Denote Something Good About Them, And Maybe Have People Consider/Reconsider Them Worth Watching?

We’re getting into lengthier territory as some series actually need to be introduced and more explanations following the whys and the whats that explain my personal reasoning on why I have these series saved. Recall in Part 1 on how I mentioned I will most likely be talking about newer series since they’re ever so slightly more relevant (ain’t that a big surprise) and also because they’re smaller in memory with how most series are usually relegated to 12-13 episodes.

There are some exceptions to that of course and the ones that fall under that category will of course will have more to talk about. For now, here’s the next five series that I keep around.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 36- That Opening Though

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 36- That Opening Though

So far so good. The finale has yet to reach any scenes of serious awkwardness in its visual quality for me to really complain on anything about. This week’s intro was also radically changed to fit the Bites the Dust saga with varying amounts of time fuckery, music distortion, and utilizing the final chorus from the full version of Great Days. I personally wouldn’t have minded something a bit more simpler to listen to but I’m glad they bothered to change it.

It’s kind of surreal to think that the series is quickly coming to an end. This is one of my favorite parts, but to be fair, any Part after Part 3 are amazing in their own way in the whole Stand deal. I can only hope for Vento Aureo’s announcement to happen around the Spring and maybe air next Fall.

I’m genuinely surprised and you can probably guess why. I’ve been on a tirade on how the visual quality has been dropping since months ago but this episode didn’t have as many hiccups as I would have thought. But of course, it’s still way too early as the exciting moments have only just begun as the final battle of Part 4 kicks off.

I only hope that the rest of the episodes to send off this part look as great as this since the action hasn’t even started yet. Here’s hoping for consistency in the future.

Rewatchables Part 1- A Balanced Scale

Rewatchables Part 1- A Balanced Scale

So for the past 2 seasons, I’ve seemingly watched nothing but Jojo and to make matters even more apparent, I didn’t even really review anything a season before Jojo aired either. No doubt, not too many anime series in general these days really pique my interest especially with the amount of work I have but why even keep this site afloat when I only bother watching Jojo and posting music? I asked myself the very same question and wondered what exactly I could talk about here when I don’t have too much time thinking about the minuscule amounts of series I watch in general.

Then it hit me that I never really gave one of those Top 10 series I love and all kinds of lists and lists of my favorite X-series. Truth be told, I still don’t have a concrete list of what I absolutely love. But what I do have is a particular collection of series that I like to rewatch, and given how much new anime comes out every 3 months, there’s an undeniable merit to the ones that get on my folder. I got my external hard-drive around a year or two ago and a good chunk of it is my backup drive but another significant portion is my anime folder. Keep in mind, these series are “mostly” fairly recent and I haven’t tracked down the older series yet.

So let’s just embark on what exactly constitutes as a literal example of a series that I bothered to remember and watch again.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 34- Beginning of the End

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 34- Beginning of the End

To my exact fears, the panel I so wanted to see animated turned out to be a disappointment. Not a complete disappointment because the act itself is cool as all hell but it just looked wonky as hell. The entire scene with Kira talking to the girl after blowing up her boyfriend looked so off but just the context of that scene enough didn’t completely make me hate it since it’s a damn cool scene anyway. Whereas I didn’t really need to review Part 3’s adaptation all that much, Part 4’s review might just be more than praises being thrown out.

But to be fair, this is what modern day Bluray releases are for so maybe there’s something better coming along.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 33- Cheap Paper Tricks

As suspected, it seems that we’ll be continuing through the Cheap Trick arc for one more episode. Coupled with that, it seems that we’ll be moving straight along Hayato’s little mini-arc, that directly leads us to the final arc, in the back. This episode once again showcased extremely noticeable dips in quality such as Rohan flailing around to get Cheap Trick off of him and Terunosuke’s attempts to ward off Josuke after Yuuya frees the latter. Here’s hoping for the final arcs to look decent, especially my favorite panel spread in the entire part.

I’ll be sure to keep my hopes mediated though.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 32- Build Up for the End

Hoo boy, the production values really suffered in the episode’s first half. Thankfully, the second half isn’t all that bad and the quality dip only covered the end of Superfly so it could have been way worse. With Superfly over with, I’ll give two more episode to wrap up Engima and Cheap Trick, unless they can really get through Cheap Trick that fast. Either way, things are shaping up for the finale. I sincerely pray they have enough resources to make it look great.
