Synopsis

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've read parts 1-8 & seen everything JoJo anime related)

Stardust Crusaders is the third part of the JoJo series so please watch parts 1 & 2 first. After the events of Phantom Blood & Battle Tendency, Jotaro Kujo makes his debut as this arc's Joestar who discovers his new STAND power & his visited by his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, warning him of the danger that is DIO Brando. After Jotaro's mom, Holly Joestar, is taken ill by DIO's curse, Jotaro, Joseph, Avdol, Kakyoin, Polnareff & Iggy embark on a road trip to Egypt to put an end to this family feud of The Joestars & read more

Finally a show about man on man, like the old days! Jojos Bazaar Adventures: Stardust Crusaders will surprise you right from the start because it doesn't take place in a store or in space like youd be thinking from the name! Nope, this show is all about tongue in exploding chiek action and adventure!

The story hooks you at the start, with our protogonist getting in trouble and having to get saved by his grandpa, but he's not on a creepy school principle's lap. He's in jail trying to control a demon! Except it's not a creepy school principle demon, either, it's a Stand! No, read more

Recommendations

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.
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.

Opening Theme

"STAND PROUD" by Jin Hashimoto (橋本仁) (eps 2-??)

Ending Theme

"Walk Like an Egyptian" by The Bangles (eps 3-??)
