Synopsis

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

As Hirohiko Araki always does with new Parts of JoJo, Diamond is Unbreakable has a whole new, a bit more lighthearted tone to it compared to the earlier chapters. This time the adventure and traveling are cast aside for a murder mystery in the small quiet town of Morioh Cho but as always JoJo and his friends are up against an ever so bizarre cast of dangerous Stand-users as they chase the mysterious serial killer and reveal the secret behind the origin of the Stand-powers.

The story starts out somewhat slow and in the beginning it might feel like one of the weaker parts of JJBA 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.
