THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A great episode featuring a battle of guts and wits between Cars and Joseph. The tragic past of the Joestar lineage is finally revealed and Cars still has another trick up his sleeve, finally reaching his millenium-old goal of attaining transcendence!

The episode was a bit slower than usual, but I liked the way DP handled the backstory. Next time:

Intense episode! Love the new background tracks used for this ep. I'm pretty sure that the announcement will be about part 3 because at the pace this is going, we most likely will be having a scene at the end of ep 26 leading into part 3.

They handled the pacing really well for this one. Much, much better than they did with the Chariot Race.

Also, I'm more hyped with part 4 rather than part 3. I blame the commercials: Rikiya Koyama really nailed it as Kira and damn, those teasers showing Josuke and co.

Really awesome episode!!

Jojo's cunning ideas are always damn amazing. He totally took Cars off guard.

Loved Lisa Lisa's backstory...and I agree with Smoky. There's no need to hide the fact anymore.
Also seems that Joseph's dad was quite a BA himself hehe.

Dat ending...can't wait for the final battle. Go Joseph :D

I have never been this intimidated by Cars at all and I've read the manga countless times just to go back and see his insane transformation.


Now? that intense dubstep music and the light with the noise intensifying as it's indicating his transformation? I got scared.

Overall a very enjoyable episode; the way Joseph ended up tricking Cars was entertaining as usual, but the main highlight was seeing Lisa Lisa and Jorge's tragic backstory finally revealed.

Next week Joseph and co. will be confronted by the Ultimate Being! It's guaranteed to be an episode that should not to be missed by any JJBA fan (new or old).

Man that flashback was long. Sucks it took up the last half of the episode but a necessary evil for the pacing I guess.

Speedwagon and Smokey hamming it up as usual with the history of Elizabeth and Jorge Joestar. I like how Speedwagon was taking credit for helping kill the vampires Dio created in Phantom Blood. You didn't do jack shit that entire arc Speedwagon except offer exceptional overacted battle commentary XD How could people in the military not see someone with fangs lol? It is a bizarre world and all but still...

Also facepalm/laughter at the ever incredible Stroheim
Discoball Cars FTW!

Ditto that. Helps that we already have a Part 3 anime, even if it was sub-par. But I think the reason people are hyped about Stardust Crusaders just comes down to whether or not they're animating the rest.

Cars transformation with that music... GOOSEBUMPS!! IN A GOOD WAY!
The flashback took pretty much half the episode but I'm not complaining because Lisa Lisa is a badass. Poor Joestars though..

Next week: FUCKING PIRANHAS!!!

Oh damn, poor Lisa Lisa ;.;

I have to admire Jojo's determination and strategy with the ropes in this episode. TAKE THAT Cars! Nice to also see some history of Elizabeth Lisa Lisa. what a badass woman.

The ending was intense as well. CARS!!!!!

I already forgot how the fight went down in the manga, its a good thing since it make the fight more exciting to watch. Joseph trolled Kars like always.

The flashback was long but it is necessary.

Can't help but love the commercials.

I like flashback; found the length pretty appropriate.

Since all this backstory is getting me into the mindset:
I really hope that Speedwagon and his spiffy ani-mullet were there to dramatically narrate the conception of Joseph's dad.

Lol.

Good stuff. Holy shit, I'm excited for next. Please let it be an anouncement for part III. The comercial for that game was awesome btw, seeing all those Jojo's at once was awesome. Kira stole the show, as he tends to do, though.

Great episode. Although the flashback did slow the episode down a bit, I didn't even notice. Cars is badass despite being a scumbag. Love his hair too. Too fabulous.

Can't wait for next week.

Another great episode, I knew Cars wouldn't trick JoJo with his sad tricks, but got tricked himself and fell to be pierced by some Crystals, though I always had the idea he would come back up again with another trick up his sleeve, as we saw when he was about to get flashed by Stroheim's ultraviolet beam!

Loved the flashback, filled us with everything we needed to know and went well with the pacing. Everything with Lisa Lisa is just that great. Wryyy

Now Cars is on his Ultimate Lifeform, and going to be fun what will happen from here on, apparently JoJo is going to fly somewhere or something according to the next episode preview. Really stoked for the announcement as well coming episode. Part 3 maybe?

Almost shed a tear during the flashback. It was thoughtful to spare Jojo from the ripple but look how great of a warrior he is now. Its great that they filled in the missing information regarding Joseph's father, I wondered why almost nothing was said of him until now. Also didn't expect a twist like that with Cars. Looks like it's going to be one hell of a climax.

Are You guys really serious that the flashback was long?
No. Seriously?
God. These people can't sit in a chair for twenty minutes without complaint.

"Pacing" is probably the word I hate most in recent years.

Jojos endless tricks outsmarting all in battle. Lisa Lisa badass backstory is beautiful. Stroheim with his hysterical and over the top voice when he thinks the game is under control hahaha
Now we have already seen animals and snakes on the plane but... piranhas????... only Jojo with these crazy ideas. Jojo is like watching a great collection of theater plays and also the reason why i still love animes. Thank you Japan.

This was epic, Stroheim always cracks me up and the backstory was fascinating. Although Smokey's reaction was overdone which made it feel slightly less serious.
The next episode looks badass, I'm looking forward to it!
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Yeah. I've never seen a show with so many 5/5s for every episode.

This episode was great. I almost shed a tear during the flashback of Lisa Lisa.

I like how Jojo's plans usually aren't even very complicated, they just have the most perfect execution. Man's got some ridiculous sleight of hand.
Also can't get enough of Broheim, who holds the (admittedly not very prestigious) title of being my favorite Nazi.

The pacing was the worst of the whole show so far, but it was still as epic as ever. Gotta love the ginormous UV beam machine. Only the Nazis would come up with something so ridiculous.

I had a pretty good laugh at the sparkly fabulous time Cars had by the end. As for Jojo's story I love how they explained the entire way why telling him was not something they should do without talking to those around him first. But I still was rolling around because it felt so flimsy. D:
