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.

Jojolion is probably going to go down as the most controversial part of Jojo. It has the most complex part of Jojo by far and therefore has the most missteps of any part by far. There are quite a few plot points that are "dropped" throughout the story of the part and while some people won't mind that, some will.

There are also some other story decisions, espcially in the later half, that are GOING to be a deal breaker for some people.

Not only that, but it was also the first jojo part that was released monthly with the western audience so there was a read more

This review is intended for those who have finished the part and are aware of the plot. It’s impossible to do this manga justice without easily saying too much. Jojolion is one of the most easily spoilable manga in existence and you should go into it absolutely blind.

For those who want a spoiler-free review, here it is: It’s the best manga I’ve ever read and you should definitely read it, too, if you have read parts 1-7, that is. Just trust me, bro.

Jojolion is ending. I can’t believe it. I’ve spent the last four years reading it on a monthly basis and now….it’s finished and read more

- "This is a story about breacking a curse" -

Here we are, after 10 years this part of JoJo is over. As usual Araki improves from part to part, and this is certainly his peak.

Story: 8/10
Araki said "Let's take the atmosphere and style of Diamon is Unbreackable and make it even more interesting by putting some weird fruit" and it worked. I really loved the fourth part, and JoJolion was no exception. We start with the mystery of Josuke's identity, then move on to the rest of the HIgashikata family ... and his curse. Just like the Joestar read more

With Jojolion having concluded after 10 years of publishing I finally feel comfortable putting my thoughts down and writing this review of what has been the most engaging part of Jojo for me.

I caught up on Jojolion a little more than a year ago with the series already being in it's last arc and final battle. The story of Jojolion feels like it is split into two halves, kind of like how part 4 of the series is structured.
My overall enjoyment of both halves is about equal, though maybe I liked the first half a little better as the main drive of the story read more
