So I've been watching Jojos and I just got to the very start of the Egypt Arc of Stardust Crusaders.

My god how have I not watched this before. It's strawberry floating fantastic! My and my step brother literally cheered when

(Character spoilers)
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. :wub:

Hirohiko Araki. :wub:

Joseph is my favourite character so far. Him and Speedwagon. Both amazing characters <3

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. :wub:

One of the best OPs of all time? Probably.

(I've also seen the full version ages ago)

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. :wub:

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. :slol:

Berserk and Hiatus x Hiatus are both amazing. However I'll be bearing retirement before either manga ends at this rate.

I can't work out if Oingo Boingo were useless or one of the best sets of enemies yet. Hilarious episode.

I love that Mariah battle. Avdol and Joseph getting caught in a compromising position was hilarious. :lol:

The next one is equally funny iirc.

You're making me want to experience Part III again. :wub:

Jojos has honestly gone from "wtf is that" to "HOLY gooseberry fool THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS EVER" in my mind.

I always thought it looked really weird and nonsensical, I found the memes funny but I never expected it to be as brilliant as it is.

Something just happened in Stardust Crusaders and I'm hoping to god they somehow take it back. This can't happen. No :(

Vanilla Ice. He Killed Polnareff and Abdul from what I can tell, finishing it tomorrow. :cry: :cry:

EDIT:

I don't think Polnareff is dead at least purely because Silver Chariot hasn't dual weilded like in the OP yet!

It's been a while since reading or watching Part III, but didn't Silver Chariot dual-wield with Anubis briefly?

Vanilla Ice is probably the character I most hated in the series. :evil:

He did, but not with two of silver chariots rapiers like in the OP.

Rather spoilerish below.

I believe that's the only time Silver Chariot dual-wields, sadly. Apparently he was given two of his rapiers in the OP as a nod to that event without it completely spoiling the Anubis encounter.

Ok so well over the weekend I finished Stardust Crusaders with my Step Brother and we watched 13 episodes in to part 4.

I like part 4 a lot, but it's going to be very, very difficult to replace the stardust crusaders in cool factor.

Old Man Joseph seems cool still, but it's kinda sad seeing him like this :(


I also like both versions of this OP:
