Kujo Jotaro is a normal, popular Japanese high-schooler, until he thinks that he is possesed by a spirit, and locks himself in prison. After seeing his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, and fighting Joseph's friend Muhammad Abdul, Jotaro learns that the "Spirit" is actually Star Platinum, his Stand, or fighting energy given a semi-solid form. Later, his mother gains a Stand, and becomes sick. Jotaro learns that it is because the vampire Dio Brando has been revived 100 years after his defeat to Jonathan Joestar, Jotaro's great-great-grandfather. Jotaro decides to join Joseph and Abdul in a trip to Egypt to defeat Dio once and for all.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2000) is one of two halves of an adaptation to the 3rd arc of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga, Stardust Crusaders. While this half came out second, with the first coming out in 1993, this one is the first canonically, going from the beginning of the arc. Even though it came second, it's definitely a better idea to start with this one.

This half starts with a young delinquent, Jotaro Kujo (the titular JoJo), in prison... not by force, but of his own free will, and refusing to leave. He claims to be haunted by some kind of strange spirit... something that gets read more

I've never been a fan of JoJo or have I actually cared about the franchise.. until now! This is the first JoJo animation I have watched so I really didn't know what to expect from the series, but what I got after completion was a fighting anime that left me wanting more.. YES the ever so popular 2012 version.

This anime was far from perfect though as there were times where I was bored and not all the characters were developed as strongly as I hoped. The intro to 4 out of 7 or so of this anime began getting on my nerves and I read more

(This review applies to the entire series, both the 1993 and the 2000 continuation episodes. Though the second half, especially the last three episodes, is noticeably superior.)

Yes, it is certainly bizarre.
JoJo is the thinking man's surrealist DBZ. Except instead of endless 3-frame loops of tedious "fight animation" it has sudden, subtle, blink-and-you'll-miss-it fight scenes. In it, weird fighters use weird powers in weird ways; typically by outwitting -- rather than merely overpowering -- their opponents.
The series' greatest strength is the unexpected, shocking oddity of it. Whenever you think the series is about to devolve into fighting game cliche, something utterly bugfuck happens. A villain will read more

Both anime have main character that fights agains some sort of evil. Both main characters have som sort of alter ege, but while in Baoh Raihousha the main character changes into it, in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure main character summons it. Both are old school OVA with lot of violence, even gore. Both anime feature parasites that resists in human brain.
Well although Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (2000) is the "new" season it's also the beginning of the series ... anyways this two anime's have almost the same idea, except Jojo is more violent and bloody than Shaman King.
But in both anime's the main character has the ability to summon a spirit which helps him through his journey. On there journey they make friends that have the same ability and they join him on his mission to fight against evil!
