Naples, 2001. Giorno Giovanna is a small-time crook with one big dream—to become a "Gang-Star." No ordinary thief, Giorno has a connection to the remarkable Joestar bloodline, and possesses a Stand named Gold Experience. His dream starts to become reality when he meets Bruno Buccellati, a mobster from the gang Passione and a fellow Stand user himself. Realizing that they share similar ideals, and both disagree with the gang's harmful affairs, Giorno reveals his goal to Bruno: with Bruno's help, he will reform Passione by overthrowing the boss.
As Giorno becomes a member of Passione, and is inducted into Bruno's squad, he discovers that it is no simple gang; its numbers are teeming with Stand users. Now confronted by other squads of differing loyalties and unpredictable caliber, their goal to change the gang from the inside out will be a tough one. Taking on these adversaries, Giorno attempts to rise through the ranks and inch closer to the boss, a man who is shrouded in mystery.

Episode 1 was previewed at a special event held at Italian Cultural Center's Anyerri Hall in Tokyo and Japan Expo in Paris on July 5, 2018, as well as at a screening at Anime Expo 2018 on July 7, 2018. Regular broadcasting will begin on October 6, 2018.
As for me "Vento Aureo" is the best series of "Jojo" together with "Stardust Crusaders". The local setting is certainly a strong point of the work (we see in fact magnificently illustrated Naples, Capri, Rome, Venice, Florence ...), but the best is certainly given by the stellar cast of protagonists and enemies. The new GioGio is nothing less than the son of Dio Brando (conceived with the body of Jonathan): Giorno Giovanna, a young Neapolitan student who wants to eradicate the scourge of drugs from the streets.
To do this he will create his own gang to fight Passione, the biggest criminal organization in existence. Accompanying him will be Bruno Bucciarati, Guido Mista and his Sex Pistols, Leone Abbacchio, Narancia Ghirga and Fugo Pannacotta. The stand powers are once again ingenious and complex, offering sensational confrontations. The link between the members of the gang is sensational, the only iteration between them is worth reading this saga. The design, although already well-kept in "Diamond is Unbreakable", further improves, to test the boundless talent of Hirohiko Araki. The only (but really the only) negative note in the series is the management of two characters in particular: Fugo Pannacotta and the final boss. As for the first, Araki gave him a stand power too strong and, not knowing how to handle it, he decided to get him out of the scene point blank; Regarding the second one, I did not find it sufficiently characterized, finding it a villain much lower than the likes of Dio Brando and Kira Yoshikage. But ultimately, Araki did not even make this series wrong, confirming once again Jojo's Bizarre adventures as the king of the shonen.
In short, once again, with regard to the stands, Araki has indulged, giving the most strategic battles I read in Jojo, exciting, unpredictable and full of twists and suspense, as well as stupendous secret techniques. So this is one of my favorite series, compelling, exciting and beautiful!!
Sometimes It Takes A While For Your One Of Your Favorite Manga To Get A Anime, Us Jojo Fans Waited Since 1995 For A Adaptation Of Vento Aureo. It Was Worth The Wait. Vento Aureo Is One Of My Favorite Jojo Arcs Because Of Its Interesting Cast and Great Storyline. The Anime Seems To Be No Different, Any Anime Fan In October Should Check Out Vento Aureo and The Rest Of The Series Of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
Story-The Story is About The Italian Maifa and The Stand Users In It. Like Most Jojo Arcs The Way They Present The Story Is Amazing. 10/10
Art-Animation In The Jojo
Series Changes Alot, But Vento Aureo Has One Of My Favorite Styles. It Looks Like A Mix Of The Two Other Arcs Before It (Stardust Crusaders & Diamond Is Unbreakable) 10/10
Sound-We Haven't Seen The Official OP & ED, But If You Watch The Trailers The Music Is Really Good. And Jojo For EDs Use Famous Western Songs (Such As Roundabout-Yes, Walk Like A Egyptian-The Bangles and I Want You-Savage Garden.) 10/10
Characters-I Loved Them All and They All Had Some Solid Backstories and Character Development. My Favorites Are Mista, Fugo and Abbachio. 10/10
Enjoyment-Jojo Never Fails To Entertain, Especially In Vento Aureo. I Loved Every Chapter Of The Manga and Know That The Anime Will Be A Great Adaptation. 10/10
All we have had so far in terms of actual footage of the anime is a camera recording that, for the most part, was either shakey or out of focus. And though what was shown at the convention was impressive in terms of visual quality, it is not reflective of the anime series as a whole. One does not have to look further than Diamond is Unbreakable so see the slowly declining quality of the character art the anime displayed as it progressed through its run, as compared to the significant level of quality shown in the earlier episodes.
What is to say that Vento Aureo won't go down the same path?
Something I'm also seeing among the reviews here on MAL is the inherent belief that, "if the manga was good, than the anime undoubtedly will be just as good,if not better" or, "because I like the manga, the anime is already a 10" which is a mentality that is innately flawed and unreasonable. Berserk and One Piece are both mangas with significant literary and artistic merit among the medium, and yet their anime adaptations are nothing more than garbage. Though Vento Aureo's anime already looks promising as an adaptation, one episode may not reflect the whole series even if it starts on such a strong note.
My main reason for writing this "review" was the score and the already large critical reception that a camera recording was receiving, and finding it illogical and frankly stupid. I know this score is reflective of fanboy mentality and is based in just their overall blind liking of the series. I also understand that their scores are just based on one episode, and their experience so far with it is a matter of opinion. But something about this situation strikes me as immature and reflective on a community that,rather than look at a show critically for what it does well on its own (as well as overall), values brand recognition and reputation more than anything else. For now I'm giving this a 5. Not because I find it incredibly average, or because I dislike the series (I am both a huge fan of the Jojo franchise and think the anime is pretty good so far), but because I both can't post this review without a score, and because there is just not enough episodes for me to give it a definite score yet.
I am aware that this a short-term problem, and once the anime is actually out, the score will drop to a more reasonable number. Until then I will have this review up in hopes for mindless fanboys reconsider giving a recording of a screen a 10.
