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...

Finally more Jojo!!! Another season of manliness, awesome characters and ridiculous plot. That was what I thought about Stardust Crusaders. Unfortunately the results kinda disappointed me. Let's start with the story. The plot is certainly ridiculous like the first season but it didn't have a big progress. Aside from the two first episodes which were very interesting when the journey starts there isn't something really unique. It consists by the same structure. Ridiculous situations and the fight of the day that the good guys always win. It was still interesting to see how they would get through every ridiculous situation but for a 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

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

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.
If you are one of those thousands who watch this newest JoJo series right now, and you feel that there is something about it that you like, yet you can't put your finger on what it is exactly, here is a suggestion. Try watching Hokuto no Ken and see if you will get this same feeling. And you don't have to watch the 100 episodes long TV series, just check out the movie.

Or you are one of those who watched everything Hokuto no Ken and you are lamenting the fact that they don't make anime like this anymore? Give JoJo's Bizarre Adventures a try, maybe it will melt your heart.
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.
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.
Both series are manly 80's shonen that have emphasis on traveling. The movie for Otokojuku serves as an introduction to the series as it contains very over the top martial arts, although only the movie has that road trip scenario. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure however focuses more on supernatural horror in its trip to Egypt. Both series contain stylish visuals & great music accompanied by a similar lead character being Momotaro & Jotaro who have a lot in common throughout the entire course of their respective long mangas. I highly recommend people to read/watch Sakigake Otokojuku & the following parts for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
Both series are very good shounens, have similar powers (Stands and Oversouls), extremely charismatic characters, supernatural stuff and very good fights with many twists.

Opening Theme

"STAND PROUD" by Jin Hashimoto (橋本仁) (eps 2-10, 12-24)

Ending Theme

"Walk Like an Egyptian" by The Bangles (eps 3-7, 9, 11-24)
