THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The opening Stand Proud sounds fucking awesome, this is how I like my GAR openings.
The fight against Kakyoin was great as well. Jotaro's first ORA ORA ORA barrage never loses its charm.

Next time:

In a fit of excitement I decided to create the thread sooner than planned. Oh well, most people who watch this RAW are mangareaders anyway.

That painting of Kakyoin lol, and his awesome OST.

THE OOOOOOOOP FINALLY, SUUUTAAAAAAAAAAAAANDO.
I'm quite satisfied by it.

The fight was well-executed, too bad for the censorship.

The OP song was kinda late but whatever. It was awesome to hear it. Jojo was popular as hell at school. It was cool to see Noriaki show up though. The nurse scene made me go :o. I hope they remove that censor in BD.

Emerald splash yo

Pretty good fight.

This episode was just as, if not more sublime than the last one, and the OP was awesome too.

The Kakyoin fight was superbly done and the OST was top class. I kind of wish that we got to LETS GO before the episode was done though, but that's what the nest episode is there for.

I'm way too excited to wait a week though! LET'S GO!

OP did not disappoint one bit. I'm really pleased that they kept the same visual style as the first two. The fight was incredible. I'm looking forward to watching it again in better video quality though.

We should get the ED next week:

Also, what's with Kakyoin's weird painting attack in the beginning? I never got that.

Can't wait. Anyway, they covered like 2.5 chapters this week. I'm starting to think that 3 cours is pretty possible.
As for the OP, at first I didn't like it that much, but now it's really growing on me.

Too early to judge of course, but if they keep this pace it's definitely going to be well more than ~25 episodes.

Stand Proud is pretty awesome.
I love how this is pretty much going to be running for 3 seasons and I hope the censorship will be removed in BD just like they did with the first season.
Can't wait to see the ending next episode.

Yeah it is too early and does feel like it'll be more than 25, but at the same time I don't expect this to become obvious until after the Polnareff episode (maybe even after Strength fight) anyway. But regardless it's still doing a great job so I'm holding out hope.

Pleased to see the opening keeping the same style to the previous openings, though I still prefer the 2nd opening from the 1st season.

Another awesome ep :D

The OP was good not as good as last one though ^^

Lol'd so much at Joseph bitching about the room and ranting about tea ceremonies saying instant coffee ftw and then hating on the coffee too XDXDXD

Jojo is popular with the ladies, well the M ones at least :P And it seems he's the kind to not hurt a woman no matter what? How the hell does he withstand all their blabbering though O_o! I see him in a new light XD

Poor Nurse. She was hot but then she got screwed. Well at least she got a kiss from Jojo lol XD
Loved how Jojo owned Kakyoin at the end. His those combo punches and the KO uppercut was epic :D

Also can't help but lol at his mother. She totally wants his D :O XD Fangirling about him thinking about her XD Well he does care about her somewhat asking about her paleness. But seems like that will be a death flag? Or sickness flag at least.

Good stuff, Jotaro wrecked Kakyoin. I took a long break after reading the early chapters of the manga, so I totally forgot about the nurse stabbing the student in the eye.

I quite liked the OP and the stand in ED even had a good sound to it. I wonder what the actual ED will be?

I like it how every character in JoJo can have chunks of their flesh ripped off and over half of their blood drained out, but then they heal naturally in a few days.

The OP is fucking great, probably my favourite so far.

That ED had damn well better just be a placeholder though.

Anyway, the directing style didn't fit quite as well in this episode as the last, but Jotaro vs. Kakyoin was excellently done - I especially loved the random technicolour shifting towards the end.

Yeah, they introduce a character with healing abilities in every subsequent arc to make this make sense.

Fuck that. I love Roundabout but it needs to change. I mean, Roundabout made sense for the first arc since there was a Yes reference in it, but these time we totally need something by Dio. My vote goes to Heaven and Hell.

Dat Opening! Glad they kept it the same as the others. Not really feeling the song as the previous ones but it still gets the job done on hyping me up. Great episode I enjoyed that fight and how Emerald Splash look animated.

I don't like the OP song more than the first two but OH MY GOD THAT ANIMATION, I COULD NOT CONTAIN THE EXCITEMENT.

Nice EMERALDU SPURASHUU, I'm going to enjoy the shouting as always.

The episode felt much shorter compared to the first one because they added an OP/ED and a summary of the last ep, I'm not too fond of those but whatever.

Can't wait to see the real ED next week. I might die.

Yeah, I kind of agree with lindle. I mean, I would be fine if Roundabout was used again. But something relevant to part 3 would be best.

Edit: Also, if Roundabout was going to be used again wouldn't it have been in this episode?

The CG quality from the opening has improved 100x. Proof right there the series actually has high quality budget now.

Unfortunately no legitimate ending. That PV OST and movie style credits were good for me though. Loving that guitar.

Other than that, the oras. All those oras were delicious to my ears.

That OP is amazing. The 3D animation is amazing, the song is quite good too, kinda catchy, but not as amazing as Sono and Bloody though. Polnareff/Eiffel/Boneraff looks really happy on it somehow.

So this just covered 2.5 chapters? Man they sure are taking their time. It would probably be a 3 season show, but it's still up in the bag for now.

Man ED next week. Any western song they choose would be fine for me.

The last star that joined them in the OP...Iggy?!

What a good episode! The OP wasn't as catchy as season 1's but it was still great. Fight scene was top-notch too, even though I was a little unsettled by the tentacle rape of the nurse and her top somehow coming open during the struggle. I'm a little thankful they censored that eye gouging...

Jotaro's a cute tsundere for his mom. She's definitely Joseph's daughter by her adorable mannerisms and use of English. I really like her so I'm a little worried about the implications in episode 3's PV, but I guess it WOULD take something like that to get him off his ass.

Brb, photoshopping my face onto a GIF of Jotaro kissing that nurse...

I'll assume it was the tree branch after all. Jotaro fel from the stairsl because he was thinking about his mother.

Such an awesome episode, Jotaro is the most badass character of 2014 hands down.

So it looks like Noriaki is being controlled by Dio against his will. If so, that means those other people in the shadows might be under the same influence. But actually defeating Dio is going to be tough because he Has Jonathan's body. Can't wait for the next ep!
