My god how have I not watched this before. It's strawberry floating fantastic! My and my step brother literally cheered when
Abdul appears to save Polnareff!
We literally had no idea that was going to happen and we both looked at each other with complete joy haha.
My all-time favourite manga, and the anime is adaptation is fantastic.
It's surprising just how many emotions the series can make you experience. Even after many re-reads and watches it still makes me laugh of brings a single manly tear to the eye with some of the more tragic moments. Polnareff is such a loveable rascal.
I have a feel you'll like Part IV's protagonist if you like those two.
I loved young Joseph with all his inventive shenanigans, but there's just something special about old-man Joseph and his over-the-top 'holy gooseberry fool' and 'oh my god' moments. He could have very easily overshadowed Jotaro in his own part at times.
Favourites from Part 1-3 are Joseph, Speedwagon, Dio/DIO, Stroheim and Polnareff.
You'll have to keep us updated with your progress, there are some amazing moments coming up. JoJo.
I love the sheer number of little details and references in the JoJo openings and endings. There are a few analysis vids on YouTube which show the manga references but they're full of spoilers, but could be worth seeing when you've finished. The live performances are amazing too.
Part IV does away with the CG but we got 3 fabulous OPs and a couple of edits so it's all good.
I spent far too much time this last week power-watching Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan, hilarious 5-minute episodes and now I've had to start the manga.
