THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This was orgasmic.
The end of Cars was handled in a beautiful way, with Sono Chi no Sadame playing in the background.
Not to mention the amazing last minutes with old Joseph at the airport, the extended epilogue (Stroheim!) and the teaser for Stardust Crusaders!

Overall, I would give this series either a 8 or 9 out of 10. It was a pretty faithful adaption and although the animation wasn't the best they did almost everything right and delivered nearly all important scenes in an excellent way. The soundtrack and the voice acting were superb, although some songs could've been used better.

The handled that part of fight so damn well, and hearing Sono Chi No Sadame just added to the sheer bombast of the whole thing. My only complaint is while I understand why they had to split it up, it would have been nice for the Cars fight after he gets the mask on to be in one whole episode, that way we don't get any breathers and it just ramps up in tension.

All of that aside though, the episode was fantastic, and it's a good wrap up for the second series, and The Ripple in general.

Ladies and gentlemen, we're in stand country.
in love with an apparition.

The series lived up to the title: it surely felt bizarre. I felt at times as if I had been watching a comedy version of Fist of North Star. The animation was more refined than that of 90's edition, but I find the old edition more sophisticated like Devil May Cry.

Next part: arguably, the best part of the saga. Overall, a great series. I was pretty doubtful during Phantom Blood but the second arc was amazingly well adapted. Probably the best thing about the series was the sound: music and VA's.

Well deserved 9/10

I was a bit iffy on how this conclusion would go because ep 25 went pretty slow and wasn't as intense as I expected. But this ep was amazing, great conclusion to the fight, great Sono Chi no Sadame, great SEKAI ICHIII epilogue, and best of all, the part 3 teaser. It's nice to see that Sugita will still voice old Joseph as well as

The best part is that the studio actually expanded upon scenes there were originally concluded in just one panel/a few lines, so the way the anime ended was much, much more satisfying.

"Sonouchi, Cars ha kangaeru no wo yameta..."
Noooo. One of my fun has ended. But I'm really satisfied. And yeah!, there's a part 3, probably. Let's wait and see. It's been a long time. More than 20 years has passed since Manga, part 1 and 2, finished. Many fans have been waiting for this anime. Staffs and Seiyuus did great job. Sugita is also unexpectedly(?) good as old Joseph. He'll have big challenge against veteran seiyu, Chikao Ootsuka. Yeah I miss them, Avdol, Joseph, Kakyoin, Jotaro, Iggy, and Polnareff!

I can't express myself after watching this. I never thought I would watch a Jojo's anime, but I just finished it and it was amazing.

Thanks for making my dreams come true, David Production.

Thanks for the incredible story, Araki sensei.

We're waiting for Stardust Crusaders~

SONO CHI NO SADAME!!!!! JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOJO Was great to hear that song again

Never expected the end to play out as it did with Cars being defeated by being sent to outer space, JoJo losing his arm, and finally Joseph to come back the way he did haha. Glad he got a happy ending unlike Jonathan : ) plus a wife to boot

Damn it, I'm gonna miss this series and one of the best shonen anime adaptations to grace viewers ever

I can't express how thankful I am for watching this series. It was extremely enjoyable and fabulously awesome! One of my most favorite shounen anime has come to an end.

My mouth hung agape when "Sono Chi no Sadame" played in the background during the final moments of JoJo vs. Cars! Goodbye Cars, and don't you ever come back!

I almost broke down in tears after the epilogue. I'll miss this series and these amazing characters. This episode was truly a satisfying finale!

Nice teaser at the end! I hope a new season is just waiting to be announced.

It's over :( noooooo, the series is done for this season.

Anyways, I kinda knew that bastard Cars would survive from the fall. I mean, some lava killing leader of the Pillar Men? Pfft. It's definitely nice to see his history a little bit though. What a bloody history.

>Was this part of your plan, Jojo?
Always feels glad that a plan comes together~

Lol, I felt kinda trolled by the ending. Jojojojo. 9/10 on this easily.

Super awesome that Jojo first opening is played when Kars is getting his ultimate ass kicked into outer space.

Poor Speedwagon, he never scored.

That teaser at the end was a great addition, The coffin of the you-know-who and Jotaro in the prison.

Just finished JoJo.

What a perfect ending to Battle Tendency, and I can't wait to see more.

Not many adaptions have been this good, which is why I think that people should send their adaptions to David rather than A-1.

A perfect 10 from me, there's no changing my score.

This is pretty awesome as there is a linkage of VAs through each part. Dio and Speedwagon, Speedwagon and Joesph, and Joesph and Dio. I am glad that immediately we got what Joesph should of been in Part 3, not the super serious version we got in the OVA (though I do hope we get some nods at the original OVA in terms of direction).


I am super pumped. Everyone among my circle doubted that they would give us a taste of things to come BUT THEY DID. I am super happy. Though Part 2 is my favorite Part, Part 3 is what all of this was building up to. Stands away.

Thank you, JJBA anime adaptation. You were every thing I hoped you be. You improved Phantom Blood a hundred times over and were flawless in your take of Battle Tendency. I hope to see you again very soon with Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable...

And so ends the first and second parts of the most Bizarre adaptation that was 25 years in the making, overall it was a superb series worthy of praise from both new and old fans alike.

I really liked how they extended the BT epilogue to provide visuals of each of the characters fates (as others have said it was really brief in the manga) and that they left us with a teaser for the next part (hello Stands :D). I'll leave it at that since I'd otherwise be here all night

Did Nutbladder dub Get Back over the BT credits? If so then I might have to see that.

The "Coming soon to SNES" joke was pretty funny too :D.

Just downloaded that version, great idea. It's a pleasure to see a series where EVERONE had so much fun with: The staff, the voice actors, the fans and even the subbers. This is how it should be.

Aw, he won by luck? More believable I guess, considering Cars is OP as f***.

This show was true to the classic shounen roots as it can be, and the animation and voice acting complemented the show greatly. Straightforward storyline, but great battle scenes, whether it be physical or psychological.

9.2 :)

SECOND SEASON, HURRY UP!!!

Considering how the last fight was rushed in the manga, this animated series is surpassing the original pretty much.

My god, that ending was incredible. I didn't think the ultimate being could be killed so this method of imprisonment is even better. Loved how they played the Phatom Blood song, its as epic as can be. Incredibly excited from the after credits sneak-peak. Jotaro looks badass. I think does a great job at the end of the arcs when detailing everyone's fates. It really makes me sad to think it's the end of an era.

I still hold a soft spot for Part 1, mainly because it was my first viewing and I was blown away by the animation, art style and the crazy plot. Dio still holds the title of most memorable villain I think. Part 2 was this with everything pushed to its limits and I really saw just how bizzare and incredible this series can be. Although, there were some slow parts during the demise of AC/DC. The final episodes with Cars really made up for all that. Naturally, all OP's were a stunning display of artistic creativity and the ED's were enjoyable too.

I feel really honoured to have watched this as it was airing, commenting with the fans. It's a show like nothing I've seen before and was a joy to watch. Now that its over (for now), I won't be forgetting it any time soon. Considering how much praise I heard about it, I cannot wait for Part 3.

Best thing I've seen in years, it made me feel like a 9 year old watching DBZ again. I loved every second of this 10/10 can't wait for part 3.

This has been, for sure, one of the best shonen manga adaptations I've ever seen. It's just so amazingly awesome and faithful to its source material. 10/10 for me (though admittedly, I am a bit of a Jojo fanboy). =P

Now, for a nice AMV/MAD recap of the season:

What a great series.I am glad I didn't pass this anime and instead, I watched it.

Oh it seems that we will probably have a S2.If they confirm this, I will totally watch it.

9/10.

I like the series a lot, but I don't see it as a masterpiece like I first did.

I didn't like episodes 21-26 very much either.

Anyway, 7/10, one of the best action shounens, but I can't see it in the light as a old school hit.

I definitely will be back for the adaptation of part 3.

ZA WARUDO is what I want to see ASAP. I've restrained myself from any spoilers.

You'll be waiting for a while!

Part 1 - 5 volumes
Part 2 - 7 volumes
Part 3 - 16 volumes
Part 4 - 18 volumes
Part 5 - 17 volumes
Part 6 - 17 volumes
Part 7 - 24 volumes

IF they actually manage to animate it all, going at the current pace it'll take exactly 200 more episodes to finish all of it up to the start of Jojolion. The show's awesome but that's almost 8 years worth of seasons, all running at the same speedy pace they ran for these two parts. It'd be great but I'm not getting my hopes up.

At least Hunter x Hunter will be adapting new material, that should quench thirst as I eagerly await for more of this series
