The fourth part of JJBA focuses on Josuke Higashikata, the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar, with Jotaro Kujo and Joseph Joestar along in a supporting role. Apparently feeling that Stands needed more explanation, Araki retroactively introduces the "Bow and Arrow," an ancient artifact which causes latent Stand ability to develop in people. Apparently Enya used this artifact on Dio, which then caused Stands to develop in the Joestar bloodline as well.

Part 4 of one of manga's longest running series gets off to a rocky start but with each volume gets better, funnier, more creative with battles and character abilities and culminating in re-establishing JoJo's Bizarre Adventure as one of, if not the, greatest shonen manga franchise ever.

Diamond Is Unbreakable's story begins with a few missteps, that of focusing on an illegitimate son thus almost rendering Joseph Joestar's courageous mission in the previous volume moot and making him look like a jerk (although this is played for laughs), and also more importantly slightly retconning the evil granny character of Enya by having her be a source read more

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is a very long-running franchise; it's been around for well over 2 decades. However to me the biggest challenge in getting into the series is not necessarily its length, but how long it takes for it to get legitimately good.

Make no mistake; the first three parts are entertaining in their own ways, however they are noticeably dated and lackluster in characterization and storytelling nowadays. While experiencing the first 3 parts, I was entertained certainly, but I wasn't that emotionally invested.

Then comes part 4 and it actually manages to catch me by surprise at how much better the writing becomes.

Part 4 takes place read more

User Recommendations

-Both series take place in a fictional town in japan -Both feature characters with abilities to summon mystical spirits to fight for them -Both contain similar slice of life atmosphere -The story involves the characters finding a killer who is responsible for mysterious murders -Both have characters joining a group except in Jojo, some of the defeated bad guys join instead of distress characters -The main characters are both badass bros
Both stories were written in the '90s and involve Japanese teenagers gaining supernatural powers. Some characters in both series are quite similar to each other (Yusuke & Josuke, Kuwabara & Okuyasu, etc.). They can also get quite dark and grim for Shonen Jump standards, although "Diamond" has a lot more bizarre/wacky moments.
