Sweet, more Dio ;)
Who said anything about Dio? It could easily be arc 2, 4, 5, or 7 they're doing something with.
Dio was in 7.
And Giorno is basically young Dio. He doesn't actually show up anywhere except when he tries to remember his father, though.
No, Diego was in 7. Not quite the same thing. Similar enough, though.
And coming back to this after chapter 90:

If a part needs an adaptation it's part 2. Joseph kicked ass. With his balls.
hahahaha !

the best comment EVAAA ~!
any way according to the ova which SUCKED a lot from my point of view .
i hated the colors , the voices , the ugly faces ( considered to the manga ) & the fucking directing .... My Beloved IGGY killed by DIO ? by stepped over him in a car ? that's fu*ked up .
and there will be a LIVE ACTION ? hah ! good luck .

to me Jojo's bizzare is MY BEST NUMBER 1 MANGA I EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE .
the manga kicked ass ! if they weren't gonna make an awesome anime like the manga without cutting the small details , then they should just stop .

JoJo live-action sounds scary. As bizarre as it can get, i bet.

He is basically the same character, and he is even called Dio most of the time.

And Giorno was quite a different character to Dio. For one, he wasn't villainous. If any of his sons are Young Dio, it would be Donatello.

It's steamroller time...!

* holds in negative thoughts about live-action* T-tokusatsu?

I don't care about live-action, but an anime movie is great!

That was exactly my reaction.

But I wonder, which part will they adapt?

Aug 26, 2011 9:48 AM by Madotsuki-san

Awesome. I mean the anime ofc, not interested in the live-action.

A tv series would have been even more amazing, but oh well.

sorry got other stuff to catch on with first maybe after that

Aug 26, 2011 7:04 AM by Mr_Gutts

i wanna see this line.

Aug 26, 2011 5:02 AM by kusushi

Not sure if want live action.

Dont think real people can be buff enough + be flexible enough to make the fabulous poses...

This is the best news. Ever.

Given Araki having disowned the Phantom Blood movie, I doubt it'll be a direct follow-on from that, so the most likely arc I can think of is Steel Ball Run... but that's way too long to adapt. With that in mind, Battle Tendency does seem like the most likely arc to adapt...

WRRRYYYYYYYYYYYY

Yeah.
