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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cherry rolling intensifies. So for those of you who didn’t read the manga, we finally found out who the real traitor is.
They’re really not trying to skip fights but I need to stress the fact that the later fights are some of the best that Part 3 offers. Sure some of the early fights are good but some of the upcoming stuff (namely two) shouldn’t be worth an episode. But if I’m speaking of the future, next week’s episode will feature not one, but TWO enemy stands. Damn, I really need to stop talking about next episode in the beginning.
So around the Sunday of last week, my Internet got completely cut off and it took a good week to get this back up. I got Episode 6 here basically done since last week but just needed pictures but had no way to get it delivered. So far, I have:
One episode of Black Bullet
Two episodes of Jojo
Two episodes of DaL
Two episodes of Nisekoi
Well, by the time I post this, Black Bullet will get another episode so screw it, make that 2 episodes of Black Bullet I need to cover as well.
Let’s not waste any time.
Well here we go folks, with Polnareff joining the Crusaders on the journey to Egypt, we begin the “Stand of the Week” style we’ll be following to the end of the line. This once again invokes my worry for potentially skipped fights. Then again, a few fights are extremely short but then again so I won’t give up hope just yet. The episode preview confirm that we’re still on track with a perfect record of every stand fight thus far so I have my hopes.
