THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was fun especially seeing Iggy in the flesh making his debut in the first episode.

Definitely a good way for the premiere with the setting in Egypt now. Polnareff's anxiety was amusing to watch too and it didn't look like the series wasted time with introducing the trouble for the group either. Nice. Oh poor Kakoyin. Found the new ED song relaxing to watch.

Pretty sure ED song is Last Train by Pat Metheny.

And so it starts again, I missed my weekly Jojo dose these past three months.

The opening itself needs a few more repeats before I can state an accurate opinion on it, but I like the ORAs in it.
I also like presentation of Iggy and The Fool, who looks gorgeous. The group shot they took was also a nice filler scene
, David Pro keeps adding material that makes the series feel more connected than the manga.
The OST and animation for the fight in general were quite good again, the trend of portraying the Stands in a more creepy light continues to pay off.

The ending theme was certainly... unexpected, though. Pat Metheny is surely not what I would have chosen. Not bad at all, just a bit surprising.

The new OP is FUCKING AMAZING. The new ED is great too, even if it came out of nowhere. It fits the Egypt part of Part 3 in a weird way.

I found the OP to be very disappointing. It was a cool idea but the previous opening is much better in both the audio and visual departments. The song is just weird and the guitar riff is frankly awful. However, I found the ED to be strangely fitting and a nice surprise. I think the more somber tone will lend itself quite well to this second arc, the previous song had to go.

As for the episode, amazing, as always. My only nitpick is Iggy's voice, not liking it a lot lot yet. It's a little bit too goofy. He sounded better in ASB. The highlight for me was when he first uses The Fool though, they made that part really cool with the music and everything.

Didn't expect this to come out this month....

Anyway, I'll see if I like this having skipped part 1, just one episode though.

Regarding the ED:

Messner's melody and guitar work that brings scenery to mind truly invokes an image of Joutarou and the others on their journey! -Hirohiko Araki


I think it is safe to assume that the master himself handpicked the song.

Jojo is back. They didn't waste any time with the action. Iggy is an interesting dog. Looking forward to see what he can do in battle.

Jojo is back and it was great seeing N'Doul again. OP was disappointing, but the new ED was an interesting choice. I was hoping for something like Dio's "The Chains Are On", but oh well.

The ED feels really heartwarming at some parts.

Hard to believe its been three months but welcome back JoJo. I like the visuals for the OP and ED but not sure on the music and stuff for the OP yet. I love that ED though it really sets it down well. As for the episode itself great episode. They didn't even play around its a straight up continuation of what happen. Finally met the stand user who represents the Fool and already meeting the new enemy attacking them. Though I got to get used to these cliffhangers I already want the next ep already.

God they can't get enough of that insane OP foreshadowing now can they

Also I REALLY liked the opening, especially since it felt like such a good "final" tune. I bet it will sound even better near the end

Good to have Jojo's back. Iggy seems like a fun addition to the group.

Not liking the OP that much but it might grow on me, whereas the ED was really nice although I hadn't heard it before. I feel like it's gonna be a sad ED by the end of the series if not everyone makes it out alive.

Tis safe to say that this is the worst OP they've had, and possibly the worst I've heard from any anime in years. Didn't like the ending much either, but at least it wasn't terrible.

Awwww yissss, JoJo is back. The ED is beautiful, however the OP will take a while to get accustomed to. I do like Coda and the other singers, but it sounds a bit weird right now.

Too bad for Holy Diver or Egypt, but no big deal, this new ED is surprisingly beautiful and ... depressing. I must admit the ED made me tear up a tiny bit, it was just too much too handle, especially the last scene with the photograph ..

OP is awesome, can't wait to listen the full version of it.
What else? I'm just really happy my weekly dose of JoJo is back.

I wish Death to the Author was applied when picking the ED, and this is coming from someone who worships Araki.

The OP is different from any other i have ever seen, it just doesn't look like an anime op and certainly not something of our time. I don't know if i like. While ED i think is good like Mushishi just not what we are used to.
FUCK YEAH JOJO IS BACK>
First time seeing Iggy and i already like him ehehe.

Loving the opening sequence a bit more than the song itself. Also the palette swaps got used. Nice.

So glad it's finally a Friday...

The new opening is alright. I like the previous much better, but for what it is, it's good. The new ending though is soooo good.

Looking forward to the rest, as usual!

Nice to have u back Jojo :3

Liking the N'doul. He's pretty cool but I have a feeling Iggy's gonna screw him over...maybe?

Polnareff suffering as usual XD His hair got REKT!

Lol'd at Joutarou holding on with one arm and the other in his pocket when the car was sinking XD

So there'll be 9 more enemies before Dio? Hope they don't take that long.

Opening not so cool , Ending was on spot

David productions did a great job with this episode .

One of JJBA's SC's best episodes easily.

Probably Hol-Horse/J Geil's one is better but that's all.

I know how much better it gets

My favorite camp, over the top series is back delivering it's usual blend. God, I missed Jonathan Joestar and Polnareff.

Pat Metheny for the ED? I would have never in a million years guessed it. I don't know who chooses the tracks for this show, but I applaud them for their unconventional choices.
