I know that it's good ye ye

It's totally worth to watch. Episodes where nothing happend? Don't worry about that, every episode is filled with great action and humor. But don't drop Jojo because of Part 1, because part 1 it's not so good, but is 10 episodes long and after that Joseph appear in Part 2 and in part 2 the jojo things really started:) For now there is 4 seasons inlcudes 4 Parts. So don't think about it like a "there is so many episodes. i have no time for that". Think about it like a over 100 episodes of fun.

Depends on what you mean by "episodes where nothing happens." There's a lot of action in pretty much every episode, but many of the episodes contribute little or nothing to the overarching plot.

What's the difference?

Don't know if it's worth it or not but personally it was the weirdest anime I have ever watched. You should give it a try it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Don't trust opinions on MAL, watch it for yourself and be your own judge.

I asked the same question from my friend last year. He told me that it was really good and I had to watch it so I did. First I thought it was just a meme show but it really was enjoyable, fun, exciting and so on... and now it's one of my favorite anime. I watched Jojo's in my holidays and it felt like I went on a journey with the cast.

So now let me tell you if it's worth it. AbsoFreakingLutely.

Same answer as always for those threads: I don't know you so I have no way of even making an informed guess as to whether you'd like it or not. Can't you just decide for yourself? Or do you want someone you can blame for recommending it when it turns out you don't like it?

Read the manga instead. The anime is shit.

After reading part 3, watch the OVAs.

It is not that many episodes and long running series is often worth watching

Okay, yes. I suggest you watch it, at least to know if you'll like it, because JoJo's... weird, or rather, bizarre.

The 9 first episodes (part 1) is the least good part but after this it's an excellent anime.
Also the first season (26 episodes long) adapted part 1 and part 2, Stardust Crusader (2 seasons of 24 episodes each) adapted part 3 and season 4 (Diamond is Umbreakable, 39episodes long) adapted part 4 so I guess you can watch each seasons with pauses between them if you want...if not you'll have 113 episodes straight of EPICNESS and MANLINESS!

JoJo is a strange show, but probably one of the best shonen battle shows out there and definately one of the funniest.

It is over 100 episodes at this point, but it's really 4 different shows with each being loosely connected to the others.

The parts are Phantom Blood (episodes 1-9), Battle Tendency (10-26), Stardust Crusaders, and Diamond is Unbreakable.

There is a significant time gap between each part and each one is a mostly self contained story with its own protagonist.

Some people might say otherwise, but I think starting with Stardust Crusaders or Diamond is Unbreakable by itself to test the waters is fine.

I don't think it will bore you, it keeps thing interesting most of the time. BUT stardust crusaders Could bore you at some points. Other than that it's all fine.

Watch at least the first two parts and decide for yourself. But imo it's definitely worth it--one of my favorites for sure. (Plus you'll finally be able to understand all the memes)

Jojo is a rollercoaster ride, you sit on the seat of one, you won't noticed that you were done and you will find yourself wanting more. There is nothing like Jojo, haven't seen it adapted well in other medium. Able to switch in between genres, able to tell a coming-of-age story in an action packed adventure, able to give off development in harsh environments and giving a cripple teenager a personality that isn't edgy and self-deprecating, but a more humorous and sarcastic fellow, who knows how to make a subtle joke leaving me to be confused as it's so indistinct.

I'd recommend it, if you're a fan of GAR & rule of cool.

However, when it comes to my favorite parts of the series, I'd recommend the first 3 parts and leave the 4th one alone.

You shouldn't be bored if you are a fan of action. Action packed episodes from beginning to end just about every single episode. If it isn't action packed, then usually, comedy is involved and it's executed well.

You should at least give a try. It is a weird anime but there are a lot of funny moments and action.

I haven't seen it myself but it should be worth it because afterwords you can understand all these stupid memes and won't be annoyed by the 10k idiots who spam that shit everywhere. So just for that you should give it a try.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

Moved from Anime Discussion

Watch an episode or 3. See if you like it or not. Go from there.

It's a certain style of hammy absurdist action that may or may not strike your fancy, so it's hard to tell if you'll like it through immediate gauging.

If you're into wacky, hilarious and off-the-wall series, then yeah, go for it. Each part offers a new experience, with an entirely new cast, setting, plot etc. so the show never gets tiresome and repetetive, unlike alot of other battle shonen. Just be wary that there's a whole lot of plotholes and continuity errors, so you'll need to suspend your disbelief quite a bit.

Nothing happening as nothing furthering the progression of the story? THis is the case for most episodes ! The story is only the canvas to paint a series of fights while exploiting a maximal number of B/Z movies and other nice things like that. At least, that's the case for the initial saga (parts 1-3).
Don't go in for a possible story. Try it because you have a certain love for victorian fantasy novels, 80s US horror movies, 70s HK kung-fu movies and their contemporary adventure movies and other oldies like that.

It's a cheerful mix of probably most things the author liked back in those days, powdered by large amounts of ridiculousness.

Okay, I watched the first three episodes and that is as much as I can stomach. Dropped. Normally I do understand why I a show is highly regarded but in this case? Dear lord this show is utter shite! The main characters are infuriating, narcissistic machos of the worst kind. The only female character is a spineless wimp and the main character is an idiot. The less is said about Dio the better and while some people love throw-back animation - I don't. It's crap. Death Note and Bleach it ain't.

yes but with a small condition.
The first 9 eps of jojo make up part 1 which is kinda awful. Like the quality spikes from a 4 to a 10 once the 10th episode starts. So to save yourself some time I would recommend either skipping the whole part and just reading a plot synopsis or watching episodes 1-4 and 9 which is where basically all the important plot details are.
