Years after an ancient evil was salvaged from the depths of the sea, Joutarou Kuujou sits peacefully within a Japanese jail cell. He's committed no crime yet demands he not be released, believing he's been possessed by an evil spirit capable of harming those around him. Concerned for her son, Holy Kuujou asks her father, Joseph Joestar, to convince Joutarou to leave the prison. Joseph informs his grandson that the "evil spirit" is in fact something called a "Stand," the physical manifestation of one's fighting spirit which can adopt a variety of deadly forms. After a fiery brawl with Joseph's friend Muhammad Avdol, Joutarou is forced out of his cell and begins learning how to control the power of his Stand.

However, when a Stand awakens within Holy and threatens to consume her in 50 days, Joutarou, his grandfather, and their allies must seek out and destroy the immortal vampire responsible for her condition. They must travel halfway across the world to Cairo, Egypt and along the way, do battle with ferocious Stand users set on thwarting them. If Joutarou and his allies fail in their mission, humanity is destined for a grim fate.

yep, i'ts jojo what can i possibly say that it wasn't said already? One of the most influential anime of all time only losing to Fist of The NorthStar, One Piece and Dragonball, Great Animation, gorgeous artstyles, amazing fights scenes, and lets not forget The character designs that some fights games take inspiration from. Jotaro is a badass( althought he can get kinda angsty tbh) that still inside has a kind heart, Joseph is a gem (thought i wish he had more time to shine), Polnareff can go from very funny to badasss to having one of the best moments in the series, Kakyoin the ...

Mixed Feelings
Short Review:
SDC just isn't as interesting as other parts of the series; it can actually be quite a bore sometimes unlike any other part in the franchise. I believe this is for two reasons: First, Jotaro is one of the least interesting and personable Jojos and he also is succeeding one of the best characters in the entire franchise, Joseph. Second, the arcs and villains leading up to the ending are just not that interesting. Maybe only a couple of the villains that the heroes fight along the way to Dio are memorable at all, and only superficially. Third, the rest of the supporting cast ...

When I think of the Jojos franchise the first thing that comes in my mind is "boring"
This shit is boring just boring.
There are many reasons for that.

First: incredibly repetitive, the plot is just a bunch of fight every damn episode until they find the main villain

Second: The plot is absolute garbage. The best way to describe this franchise is by saying that its like its written by a 12 year old or something

Third: The characters are really boring and generic. 99% of the characters are just onefaced and generic with really really boring and bad development

Fourth: The fights. They are the worst kind of ...
