In a Japanese jail sits 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo: punk, fighter, delinquent...and possessed by a force beyond his control! Around the world, evil spirits are awakening: "Stands," monstrous invisible creatures which give their bearers incredible powers. To save his mother's life, Jotaro must tame his dark forces and travel around the world to Cairo, Egypt, where a hundred-year-old vampire thirsts for the blood of his family. But the road is long, and an army of evil Stand Users wait to kill JoJo and his friends...

I found myself stuck in the puddle of mediocrity that is 2014 summer season. Akame ga Kill, Tokyo Ghoul, Aldnoah.Zero and SAO II. I was slowly losing my faith in anime and on several occasions I thought that I should try to go outside my room and socialize with other Homo Sapiens. It was that bad.


Then I saw a pillar.

A pillar of hope.

A pillar of testosterone and manlyness.

A pillar of Jojo.

Where do I begin? At the start most likely. It starts with our hero Jotaro read more

I love me some JoJo. But holy shit I could feel the animators spaghetti falling out of their pockets animating this piece of crap.

Animation: Good. Took a minor quality dive compared to the prequal.

Characters: Jotaro-"Yare Yare." Joseph- "OH NO!" Avdol- "MR. JOESTAR!" Kakyoin- "Hm." Polnareff- "UWAAAAH"......There. You don't need to know about the characters now.

Story: Terrible. They thought it would be a fun idea to have a villain of the week, all of which have the planning and strategy of a toddler playing Battleship. You could actually watch the first episode of this show, skip the rest, and then go watch the next season read more

A new season of manliness, a new season of awesomeness, a new season of crazy onomatopoeias, impossible poses and clichéd phrases which are so awesome that will make you forget that they are really cliché. Here it is, a new season of JoJo´s Bizarre Adventures and it will be this Cat´s pleasure to review it.

Welcome to The Neko´s review of JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 3: Stardust Crusaders.

As we know, JoJo is divided into several parts, each with it´s own character, own plot but with similar style. Stardust Crusaders is the third part of the whole Jojo´s Bizarre Adventures franchise and works as a read more

I came into Stardust Crusaders with high expectations after watching Battle Tendency. I wanted it to be as good as Battle Tendency, but I don't think this anime measures up to it's predecessor. It's full of plot holes, and later on around episode 16 it really started to feel like every episode was just filler. None of the main characters have really changed at all throughout the season too. Along with the season finale (if you could really call it that), where almost nothing gets resolved. This is a 25 episode anime but I feel like it could read more

Anime: Hunter x Hunter (2011)
Two classic shounen series. Hunter x Hunter and Jojo Stardust Crusaders takes on the adventure theme and brings together a show chronicling characters' journeys. The main male protagonist from both series are strong, resilient, and deep down cares about people he befriends with. In particular, they have a connection with their parent guardian. Both series has a lot of action with supernatural abilities involved and fighting spirit. I recommend both series for fans who are looking for a show with engaging storytelling.

Anime: Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
Both main characters have a cocky, stubborn attitude that shows off their strengths and intelligence to out wit the enemy. Meeting up with new characters who get into conflicts with the main character but helps train and guide are protagonist to later on become companions to fight a much bigger evil. Both series have great action/comedy plus good character development as the stories unfolds.

Anime: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Crystal
There are 5 characters in the main cast

There are "enemies of the week" and one main enemy

The main characters have "alter egos" with special powers necessary to defeat evil (Although, JoJo cast do not transform, but summon said egos)

Both are old manga and old anime remade with sharp animation and bright colors. Also, note the 3d in both the openings.

ps: Sailor Jupiter looks like Kakyoin, with wavy pink hair and green uniform.

Anime: Kill la Kill
Both series have brutal non-stop over-the-top fighting, are more like classic shonen than modern shonen, have a similar main protagonist (Ryuko Matoi and Jotaro Kujo) and main antagonist (Ragyo Kiryuin and Dio Brando), and have similar powers (Kill La Kill has Goku Uniforms and Kamuis and JoJo has Stands). 
reportRecommended by Domayv
Anime: One Piece
Both series tells about a adventure around the world (from Japan to Egypt in JoJo and from East Blue to Raftel in One Piece). Similiar fightinig abilities and the main characters have both a funny grandpa who has a lot great fights in the past. And in main crew of both are a Frenchman who is nice to ladies.

Anime: Shaman King
Both series are very good shounens, have similar powers (Stands and Oversouls), extremely charismatic characters, supernatural stuff and very good fights with many twists.
