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

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.

And he’s black.
Well with that pun I’ve been wanting to say for the longest time, let’s get on with it as we conclude the penultimate fight arc before the seasonal break

Joseph got called Dandy
The bizarre adventure finally starts and we get a glimpse of what’s to come. Recent Bluray news basically confirm a 24-26 episode run but with the pace we’re going at, I doubt we will get there. If anything, they might as well make a 12 episode seperate series when they finally arrive in Egypt. I said finally because a quick plane ride to Egypt ain’t happening folks. We’ve got a “Defeat the Vampire in 50 Days” journey going on that’ll make Jules Verne himself pose.
Did I mention it was slow-paced? It’s a good thing I suppose. They haven’t cut too many things out but they might have to.
Let’s get to it, fellow Crusaders

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

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

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.
