I found myself stuck in the puddle of mediocrity that is 2014 summer season. Akame ga Kill, Tokyo Ghoul, Aldnoah.Zero and SAO II. I was slowly losing my faith in anime and on several occasions I thought that I should try to go outside my room and socialize with other Homo Sapiens. It was that bad.


Then I saw a pillar.

A pillar of hope.

A pillar of testosterone and manlyness.

Objectivley, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusader, the third arc of the Jojo saga, is not a perfect anime. Monster of the week format, unusual art, somewhat silly plot. These are not, however, bad points, to one who is willing to accept something like Jojo. However, just like with it's predecessor, Stardust Crusaders is one of the best anime of the year.

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders focuses on Jotaro Kujo, the grandson of Jospeth Joestar, the main character of Part 2: Battle Tendency. Part 3 introduced the concept of stands - kind of like a spirit that fights for you. It is soon discovered that the ...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders is more than just a classic adventure filled with bizarreness. Taking a journey into this show is an experience like no other when it comes to creativity. It’ll be like riding a roller coaster that will leave you with the impression of giddiness and “oh what the bloody hell”. But if you think that now, just wait until you find out what our heroes has to blaze through. It’s more than just hell as they become crusaders in this adventure to fulfill their destiny.

Continuing from where Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012) left off, Stardust Crusaders adapts Araki Hirohiko’s manga of the ...

I was apprehensive about starting part 3 as I wasn't too keen on it in the manga and until recently rated it as my second least favourite entry in the series. With this review I'll explain why I began to love it after watching the animation.

Story: Part 3 is essentially a road movie with numerous delays before the destination. Jotaro and co. are required to defeat Dio in Egypt so that the curse placed on his mother is lifted. In the past I had qualms with the story taking second place to the desire for a phoned in endless battles. I mean come on...ENEMIES BASED ...

We see jotaro is the best jojos. From history I have nothing more to add.
No lie, this part of the arc is full of fights too many for my liking. It becomes very, very repetitive whenever they get close to the goal, something happens again that delays them like that until the end of the season. For better or for worse that is the season if you have patience for it you will enjoy it a lot because what is coming in the second part is glorious. The group of characters that is put together is very epic, although they always beat the Frenchman too ...

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 ...

Preliminary (6/24 eps)
(I've read parts 1-8 & seen everything JoJo anime related)

Stardust Crusaders is the third part of the JoJo series so please watch parts 1 & 2 first. After the events of Phantom Blood & Battle Tendency, Jotaro Kujo makes his debut as this arc's Joestar who discovers his new STAND power & his visited by his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, warning him of the danger that is DIO Brando. After Jotaro's mom, Holly Joestar, is taken ill by DIO's curse, Jotaro, Joseph, Avdol, Kakyoin, Polnareff & Iggy embark on a road trip to Egypt to put an end to this family feud of The Joestars & ...

Preliminary (12/24 eps)
I saw various clips from Stardust Crusaders before I was even familiar with the whole JoJo scene. so I did the obvious, I started watching the 2012 version of the Bizarre Adventure and work my way up to watching Stardust Crusaders. But in all honesty the prequel was clearly better.

The typical trope in any shonen-type show is a character starting off with a very low amount of skill, but an incredible amount of potential. this is what invests you into watching a show like this, you wish to see the characters evolve, improve themselves, learn new ability's etc.

Despite the flaws the original bizarre adventure had, ...

Preliminary (7/24 eps)
Finally a show about man on man, like the old days! Jojos Bazaar Adventures: Stardust Crusaders will surprise you right from the start because it doesn't take place in a store or in space like youd be thinking from the name! Nope, this show is all about tongue in exploding chiek action and adventure!

The story hooks you at the start, with our protogonist getting in trouble and having to get saved by his grandpa, but he's not on a creepy school principle's lap. He's in jail trying to control a demon! Except it's not a creepy school principle demon, either, it's a Stand! No, ...

To kick it off. I am going to say. yes. Do watch it. Even if you're considering starting with part 3 like a filthy casual. Which is...
S u r e b e l i k e t h a t .

Story is a *SOLID* 4 out of 10 at medium capacity, I could easily push for 6 but nah.

Art is just as any other jojo part a straight up 11/10

Sound. Wait what? why is sound a thing? what? Music is good as always. But the sound of my cheeks clapping down the hallway shouldn't be something I need ...

just wanna get my thoughts out on entire part 3 and part 3 battle in Egypt: (Spoilers of course, just finished watching it last night) Firstly this is one of the best anime of all time for me, This was an amazing adventure the humor was top notch, the battles were pretty good, we travel on a journey to Egypt from India to Pakistan and all the countries we came across the crusaders get to fight some of the unique stand users. The wheel of fortune was my favorite stand from this part along with Justice stand. I love Polnareff he's my favorite character sometimes ...

i do not care what anyone says, i absolutely loved stardust crusaders! a lot of people dislike for the many episodes of non stop fighting with random stand users but I found them good ways for the crew to show their strength. jojo overall is my all time fav and as of now i have yet to watch an anime that brings me joy the same way jojo does. part 3 was the reason why i continued watching the show and it’ll always be favorite for that. however, I know that anime is not perfect. i would’ve preferred it as a lot of people if ...

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Part 3 is my favourite among the series. It's just so awesome. It's like a great thing to the anime community, I swear!

The story
It's masterful. Literally it's amazing.

The art
The art is the only thing that is missing from this becoming a masterpiece. The art needs work done. It's still great, but needs work.

The sound
The sound, again, is amazing. I enjoy it.

First, to understand this review, we need to remember what Jojo part 3 is about. In it, Jojo and his group are going to defeat DIO on account of having put a "stand" on his mother. In the second season, the group has already arrived in Egypt.
In the 1st episode, a new participant is presented to us, Iggy, a dog user of "stand". Even though it is just a dog, during the anime, we see its importance. ...

(this is a review for part 3 and part 3 battle in egypt, i tried to keep minimal spoilers)

the story is a little slow and some of the fights feel a bit long but it is no means a bad story at all.
story: 8

jotaro isn't the most likeable joestar but he isnt by any means a bad one.
polnarref and avdol are the comic relief and joseph has mastered the art of engrish.
characters: 10

After all the mediocre seasonal animes we have been getting a light shines through all the filth and that light is Jojo's bizarre adventure: Stardust Crusaders. This is easily the best anime of the season, it blows the rest out of the water. no seasonal anime can compare to this masterpiece. it would be an insult to Araki Hirohiko who wrote this manly series. Now I lie in wait for January to witness the greatness that is coming in the Egypt saga.

The first part of Stardust Crusaders is great. JoJo really hits its stride in this season. Most agree in this assessment, because the addition of Stands was a good one. The art and sound are top notch. I love the soundtrack and how each character was given their own theme, it is a really nice touch. David Production really knocked it out of the park with this one. One of the aspects that I liked about this show that isn't really talked about is how low the stakes are. Yeah Dio is a bad guy, and yeah they gotta stop him, but it isn't like ...

HOLY SHIIIIIT....this is good.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is just amazing, taking what the foundations of the first season of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and ratchet up the bizarreness and craziness have now having a more refined edge to itself while also adding in past incidents coming into the light all under the initial premise, this first half of Stardust Crusaders anyways as Around the World in 80 Days: Jojo's Edition with Stands as the primary obstacles. What does kickstart this season is Holly Kuujou (Joseph Joestar's daughter) who awakens her Stand and with Dio reawakened, Joseph, his delinquent grandson Jotaro, Mohammed Abdul an acquaintance of ...

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a truly unique show. It's one of those rare shows that defines its own standard and redraws boundaries of what should and should not be done with aesthetics and fight scenes. The clothes are fabulous, the action is ridiculous, the voice-acting exudes energy, the poses are awe-inspiring, and the soundtrack is a treat for the ears.

When speaking of other anime you can usually use comparisons to pigeonhole that show into a category, but JoJo is pretty much a category in and of itself. No other show has dialogue like JoJo, a story like JoJo, art style like JoJo, characters like JoJo, ...

Jojo Bizarre Adventure part 3 you have done it again

This part covers Jotaro, the grandson of Joseph, and does include Joseph as well, when I first saw a couple of episodes of part 3 I was not sold on it to be honest, i was not a fan of the idea of stands, since i was used to the whole Hamon concept, however as the show progressed i really really started to enjoy it and even love it.

The only thing i did not enjoy about the show is how the turned Joesph character his stand is not so cool, considering that he is Joseph ...
