Kujo Jotaro is a normal, popular Japanese high-schooler, until he thinks that he is possessed by a spirit, and locks himself in prison. After seeing his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, and fighting Joseph's friend Muhammad Abdul, Jotaro learns that the "Spirit" is actually Star Platinum, his Stand, or fighting energy given a semi-solid form. Later, his mother gains a Stand, and becomes sick. Jotaro learns that it is because the vampire Dio Brando has been revived 100 years after his defeat to Jonathan Joestar, Jotaro's great-great-grandfather. Jotaro decides to join Joseph and Abdul in a trip to Egypt to defeat Dio once and for all.

I would never recommend this OVA to anyone as a replacement for the manga or the 2014 anime adaptation, but as it's own thing and a companion piece to the original story that offers different takes on some things it works surprisingly well.

The character designs are at least interesting, the animation is extremely fluid (vastly outshining SC anime) and the music is great at illustrating the tone.

it's all good except the fact that it was SO FUCKING LIFELESS.

characters deaths don't give you the impact that it does in the new anime. some things also don't make sense because of the studio cutting things. the only thing that kept me going was the animation. other than that the sound design and voice actors were dog shit.

honestly you should only watch it for the animation, don't think that you will understand the story from only watching this. Voice actor for DIO sounds like a grandpa so at times I really can't take him seriously.

so finally, should you watch it? sure

Preliminary (4/7 eps)
I have recently watched the Part 3 Anime by David Productions and read the Manga and I have to say, this adaptation is not up to par.

The animation cuts out many of the parts where action is supposed to be happening to focus on the uninteresting reactions. I didnt mind how they restructured the story to condense it down but they didnt take advantage of condensing it in any way. For a story that was ...
