Zeppeli rules!

I really have to start reading the manga when I can make the time for it. (That's if I can)

Yeah but it only makes you wonder if you should just drop the anime for now and watch it when the BR are released.

Oh God this episode was so epic. Zeppeli is such a cool guy this episode. That hat and his abilities and the way he talks. 5/5.

I love Speedwagon's incredibly dramatic commentary on everything he sees. He made Erina using a wet cloth to tend to Jojo sound like the most intense scene ever witnessed.

Everytime Zeppoli was in the water, I couldn't help thinking about his shoes.

He's going to ruin those nice leather shoes.

Just like before, everything is really rushed and the animation is still mostly a slideshow.

Will keep watching.

It's actually a good thing this arc is rushed. It is by far the weakest of the routes, and I think going through it so fast helped the pacing of the much better second arc.

Good to know. I was expecting these early episodes to be worse than the latter ones. Looking forward to that second arc.

Haha, I said routes. I must have been thinking of VN's when I posted.

Not one drop of wine would have been wasted with me because I would have drank it all (and then some) before I went looking for the zombie.

Man, this show is manliness himself. Dislocating your arm to get a greater range and fighting while holding a glass of wine. It's so useless, but it show your class :3

Dio is so brutal, killing the woman by exploding her head. I really didn't expected that show to get so gruesome.

I already foreshadow it, JoJo will have a kid with Erina and she will die in a dramatic way due to Dio and it will be symbolizing the life he had with his lonely father.

Woah, Jonathan killed Jack with the ripple effect through the wall and made him explode, that was awesome. Zeppeli seems like a pretty cool guy too

I kinda missed Dio baiting JoJo, LOL.

So over the top. Magic.

ofc Dio didn't die
like, did anyone at all expect him to die

huh, thinking of that mask as having been made by the Aztecs actually feels like it has some sense and it makes everything even more mysterious and interesting
finally

be like: defeat zombie and then drink all the wine

I wish they hadn't cut the Wang Chan fight. If nothing else it helped establish how Dio knew the heroes were on the way and how he knows

Wow the pacing...it's way too fast!!!
It's so fast paced that it actually feels like an abridged series or just a straight up parody of old Shounen anime (perhaps that's intentional).

Hopefully they slow it down a bit...I am however liking the fabulous poses, sound effects and Speedwagon's one liners.

I feel like Speedwagon might become a favourite!

A mentor comes out of nowhere to help the protagonist.
This reminds me of the hunter x hunter training session.

Also, the fast pacing is a positive.

Okay, I didn't expect there to be like magical shounen powers in this that can heal and hurt at the same time.

Jack The Ripper is in everything, from this to Black Butler to Ripper Street etc. He's a recruit for Dio lol.

Zeppeli discovered the mask and his dad went cray cray with it! D:

That overdrive technique whilst cool, I did not understand how his face just kinda blew up.

Cool but confusing fighting techniques.

Never spill the wine JoJo, it will come in handy lol. Weirdly and not for drinking but finding people lol. With their spirit energy ... oops wrong show.

That is some fast horse decapitation. It takes me longer to slice a buttery mango.

Speedwagon's screams are giving me life.

The Baron came out of nowhere and just kept talking about Ham Energy. Bizarre.

Cutting off a horse's head and hiding inside the body's fucked up. I am enjoying this greatly.

Tsk, tsk.

I loved episode 1 and it was a very intriguing way to get into this... and then it kind of fell off with 2 and 3, but still remained interesting if only for the characters... and this one totally lost me.

Is this really just DBZ 2.0? Over the top, gigantic buff guy actions and powers to 'save the world' from a vampire lord and his zombies?

Really?

I mean, at least they explained the power, which was interesting with turning advesity, fear, all that into your power was handled okay... but... sorry, this is just stupid standard shonen.

Big on imagination and style, sure, but I like things that usually aren't save the world stories, or if they are, keep in very personal and intense for the cast.

This had none of that for me. No torment, no real characterization, wacky mentor coming out of nowhere. Ugh, I remember why I grew out of shonen. Not that you can't still it good, but this is the kind of storytelling I didn't like even as a kid.


Overall, good start, but I'm done after this episode. If this show is so beloved simply for its fighting, then I'm glad I won't have to waste countless months of my life going through it all.

It's far too blunt for my tastes. Dropped.

Edit: I did further research on future arcs (the supposedly 'better' ones) and oh my god... and here I've been calling Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, and Bleach the worst animes of all time.

Congrats, JoJo... I think I have my new #1 choice of most retarded series of all time.

Whats wrong with a Serial Killer that Kills Women for their hands and the MC's searching for him? and Isn't Steel Ball Run considered like one of the greatest mangas ever made lol(Even on par with Monster, 20th Century Boys and Vagabond)
