Synopsis

In 2011, childhood friends Yasuho Hirose and Joushuu Higashikata discover a naked man buried in the ground just outside the town of Morioh. The man has no memory of his name or previous life; the only thing he remembers about himself is how to use his Stand, a supernatural ability that takes the form of a humanoid creature. The stranger is quickly given a name, Jousuke, and Joushuu's father Norisuke decides to adopt him into the Higashikata household until he can find his own home.

As Jousuke begins to investigate his past, it becomes apparent that he is no ordinary amnesiac. There is much more to his identity than he first suspected, and, as he is thrust into a series of high-stakes Stand battles, he soon begins unravelling a deadly conspiracy that encompasses the entire town.

Just like in the previous part, Araki managed to create something that felt completely fresh. Despite the links to previous parts (especially the 4th), this one feels like none before it!

This was hands down the best part by far. Steel Ball Run had the best premise out of all the parts, but JoJolion had the best writing. The stand abilities, though often oddly unique and situational, were all incredible and were written into fights very creatively.

The story itself felt very well written, as while reading through the chapters, I could see a lot of writing advice that I've heard in the past being applied to ...

First review!

Story: 6
While I did enjoy the bizarre nature of the mystery and understood the themes of the story, It lacked focus. The story meanders around a bit too much, with many arcs that add little to the main plot or contribute anything in the future. The story would have benefited a lot from using these one-off arcs and spreading them into the main conflict. For example, using the Higashikata family and their abilities more. We got prolonged arcs introducing them, so they could sit outside the plot.

(Just to clarify: I don't mind when characters do things outside the plot like in part 4, ...

Preliminary (110/110 eps)
[Updated, check the end for the new part]
Some people love this part, and of course they have every right to, but I just don't get it. This part has zero appeal, the story is boring and beside the usual weirdness it doesn't feel like JoJo at all.

Story: Pointless (1/10)
The climax of this part is people waiting fruits to grow. You never know what this part is about, and fans talk like it's the best thing ever, but do you really enjoy reading a story that goes nowhere for years? Most fights are boring and feel to take forever to end, and it's one of the ...
