I personally love Stand Proud.
It's not the 80s hymn like Sno Chi no Sadame nor is it a weird, yet strange modern ...well, what exactly can you use to describe Bloody Stream? But in any case, Stand Proud is a classic, very Shounenesque opening that has plenty of oldschool vibes and the right amount of camp to please the listener. I listened to it for an hour on repeat and imho the song grows the more you listen to it.
Stone Ocean adaption when?

Such an great episode. Opening was great,even though not as great as Bloody Stream. It´s a shame it is censored,so I will probably rewatch it when BR comes out.
Also,I loved that ownage moment.

great episode i loved the opening and the school girls and the nurse were pretty funny. i was never a big kakyoin fan besides his rero rero thing but he was pretty cool also.

any idea of how long this series will be? i can't see it being as short as the last two since this part was so much longer in manga form it has to be more than 25 episodes.

The pacing seems to strongly indicate a 3-cour series so far.
Good decision, I'd rather have 39 episodes and some good filler (DP showed they are capable of this in the 2012 adaption) than extremely rushed 26 episodes.

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.

Too... many... smileeeeeeeys......................

They never explain how Kakyoin injured Jotaro do they?

One of the many Araki plotholes. Just assume his Stand fires a ranged attack the moment he draws...


This is also what I assume from reading the manga, The painting was more of a dramatic effect to make readers feel that Kakyoin has an advantage in range and practically have invisible attacks.

I don't get why Kakyoin gave Jotaro a heads up on his plan to kill him, would have been awkward as hell if Jotaro noticed the message right away. Also, why didn't Kakyoin just keep painting on Jotaro's image until he died of blood loss? Regardless, I still enjoyed the episode,the opening was great though Bloody Stream is still my favorite out of the three so far and the animation continues to be amazing 4/5.

So far not as good as Bizarre Adventures for me, but still pretty darn fun. I'm hoping for a powerup when Dio shows up again.

OK why the hell didn't he continue using his drawing ability? That's like an instant retcon.

That said, the puppet ability, the 'slashing' as short lived as that was- and the view on 'justice'. This character is like Doflamingo's twin.

Anyway... pretty fucking brilliant, that's all.

Episodic so far, convenient exposition, everything screams cliche, has every making of a show I'd really hate... but I'm loving it. When a show makes you love it using the elements you hate the most... that's brilliant.
The two fights, in the two episodes we got were very memorable and iconic, each had a distinctive 'feel' to it. Just like Joseph vs Cars and Wham, so technically, 4 in a row.
Usually a shonen would have one or two per very lengthy arcs.

One thing though... Kujo so far doesn't seem as interesting as Joseph... he's just the stoic-but-good-deep-down type and isn't very interesting/unpredictable as his grandfather was.

The powers are various but very simple and don't have explanations, but I still find them very interesting, if for nothing, then for seeing the similarities with other modern shonen abilities.
Also, how come they never mention/use ripples again?

The animation was so good I had to laugh out loud
Not the animation you'd expect for a shonen, or a long-runner, or from a new studio, yet it is easily some of the best I've seen mixed with the style.
5/5

P.S Oh and Hierophant looks like Ginzo from Yu-Gi-Oh

The new OP is cool. In the same line of the previous one.

Damn, that new guy was ruthless... Well, until we know that he was manipulated by that weird thing on his forehead :O

Ahhhh, Jojo, you magnificent bastard. That beating felt so good xD
I'll be waiting for the BD for more gore stuff :)

Damn, I really thought the nurse died. How can you survive from having your throat cut from the inside?

how is it episodic? It's one continual plot so not really.
The exposition and cliches just add to the awesome campiness, which is probably why you enjoy like the rest of us :D

Because that wasn't his ability "at all". Araki "PROBABLY" added this scene for dramatic effect, showing the readers/watchers that he can attack from a very far distance and accurately fast.

My theory is that Kakyoin timed his Paint slash, with the movements of Hierophant Green, and it was rendered invisible to the eyes of the readers and too fast for Jotaro to notice it.

Bluntly, It's one of Araki's bad habit.

Not really digging Stand Proud. Hope it grows on me after a couple episodes.

It was an alright episode, although the pacing was really really slow. At this pace, they better make it 3-cour!

now everyone i am glad you all like "Roundabout" because Yes is one of tHE best bands ever but I actually look forward to another ending. Although, i've been thinking hard on what could really top "Roundabout", i just can't fit in anything else. Except...


that opening animation, it's like Araki opened his curtains and said, let there be flashy sparkly animated jojos and friends. amazing. The opening song fits right in and i'm digging it a lot. That fight was amazing, i need to watch it again like ten times. When Hierophant Green got into that pose, i screamed Emerald Splash too many times. This is all too much for me. Holly is forever cute.

I still find it pretty funny that he's a student. I thought he was in his late 20's rofl. He is like bigger and taller than everybody. Love it. When he kissed the nurse and pulled that slimy bastard out, I was like "okay, this is going to be one bad ads season". Each generation is more bad ass than the last. I love them all. Can't wait for next week!

Yeah it does, because SC is much more popular than the previous Parts, in fact it's safely say that it's the most popular Part of JoJo. (Together with Part 4 and 5)

Yes, and in the old OVA it was even more funny because Hayama's style is more manly, and he seemed like he was in his late 40's.

Are you serious? DP is the only one who could understand the feeling of JoJo so deeply, that's because as I've read, every member of the staff is a fan of the series himself, so they really love what they're doing and I'd honestly say that they're doing well so far, it's darn faithful to the manga. Furthermore, no other studios would try to fix Araki's old mistakes so accurately.

Aside from that it was epic of course.
