Joseph-The Magenta Maverick

Let's talk about how awesome the intro/opening of the game is:

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All …youtube thumb

It makes me feel like I'm about to watch a heist movie, or a porno, or a heist porno.

Also, Tusk Act 4 can rip open my Love Train anytime.

P.S. I find it hilarious that Joseph gets the longest introduction but is all but absent from the rest of it since he can't ORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORA like all the other Jojos.

So apparently they're rerunning the Jojo anime later this fall, which is usually only done for series that are getting a sequel or BD set. The most common reason I've seen given for why it's taken them this long to announce a sequel (barring executive politics and the like) is staff obligations, such as that the screenwriter Yasuko Kobayashi has been too busy with other projects like SnK until now.

Yeah, sounds like he's too busy trying to get his voice to sound old to pay attention to proper emoting. As much as I love Sugita for his voice and everything he does IRL, and even though he's generally good with what he does, I wouldn't rank him at the top in terms of VA quality.

Can't wait for Stone Ocean, it's one of my favorite parts but Japan doesn't appreciate it nearly as much as it should, probably because it has too many girls. Maybe when they animate Stone Ocean it'll finally get some proper appreciation over there. It worked with the first season.

>It's actually happening, guys. We're getting SDC.

Really? Like... SERIOUSLY?! Wat...?

That would be pretty ironic. I've been wanting it for freaking months, and actually decided to start reading the manga. As I'm going through Part 3, I'm thinking "Why not? It's not like the anime will start up again a week after I finish..." which is pretty much exactly what happened.

Anyway, I hope they do a faithful adaptation of pretty much all of it, even if it would end up extremely long. The OVA was great and all, but skipped 90% of the Stands and all of the subtlety. More importantly, it skipped all of the FUNNY shit. Like the stupid dude with the Sun. And the baby. And Polnareff being turned into a naked 10-year-old. And Hol Horse making an epic comeback... only to shoot himself. I want to see all that stuff, too.

Speaking of which:

>start reading Jojolion
>following chapter
>everything is forgiven

This has the makings of greatness.

Part 7, due to how slow it starts. Plus, all those horses...they're probably going to be using a LOT of CG if they ever get around to Steel Ball Run.

As for weird? While Part 5 is one of the most beloved Jojo parts (its own video game while 2, 4, 6 and 7 never got any during or after their run!) in Japan, its awkward pace and fractured story (compared to the episodic Part 4 and the other more straightforward parts) may require some rewriting to make it work as a television show/movie series.

That said, I hope Part 4 gets adapted, even if it wasn't the most popular of the Jojo parts over there.

Pre-SBR Dio's probably the least clever of the main Jojo antagonists revealed so far. For all his talk of tactics and intellect, his campaigns in Phantom Blood and Stardust Crusaders revolve around being OP (and having dumb luck nearly on par with Pocoloco). Instead of using his powers creatively besides the part with the knives, he simply believes (can a monkey defeat a man?! Which is, by itself, an idiotic argument as a lot of monkeys can) that brute forcing things once he gets to a position of strength is all he needs in comparison to his fellow villains with the freezing touch being the only brilliant thing he's ever done. Even the Pillar Men and Kira, who had the most overtly destructive abilities showcased so far, still deigned to use those skills strategically.
>> No. 85179

I never thought Dio was very clever. Occasionally, yes, but not any more than anyone else, and usually less than everyone else. I guess it's hard to stand out as smart in a series where absolutely everyone is fighting with insane gambits and tactics and subterfuge. The only really intelligent thing I remember from SDC was when he knocked Jotaro to the ground and wanted to see if he was really dead.

*Jotaro holds his breath*
Dio: Hm, he's not breathing. Better check his heartbeat.
*Jotaro stops his heart*
Dio: Hm, his heart isn't beating, either. Must be dead. But just in case, I'll chop his head off from a distance! *trollface*

Though that's more being Genre Savvy than clever. He even said it himself with that line about Jostars being lucky — it's not a much farther leap to start leaning on the fourth wall by saying they can't die because they are the protagonists.

>That said, there are a couple of interesting aspects to the game’s localization. For one thing, Namco Bandai are working with JoJo publisher Shueisha to make sure that the localized names for the characters fit with Hirohiko Araki’s intentions “while not offending any party”. Additionally, the localized names will be matched to the U.S. and European versions of the recent anime to ensure consistency.

Hoo boy, time for name changes. And for that matter, the possibility that they're bringing the anime series over as well.

I think the phrase's meaning is closest to the Latin "quid pro quo", which can be loosely translated into English as "something for something".

"Equivalent Exchange" is just the translation popularized by FMA that a lot of people think of, but it is by no means exclusive.

Kinda sad that the episode was too long for us to get proper opening/ending themes. I was really looking forward to that. Guess we have to wait until next week.

Also, I started reading Part 4, and I've read like half of it in the last two days... WHY IS THIS MANGA SO DAMN GOOD?!

(Anyway, it bothers me that Araki is seemingly unable to design a proper teenager. Koichi is supposed to be 5'2" compared to Josuke's 5'10", but he consistently looks four feet tall and about eight-years-old while Josuke and Jotaro look about seven feet tall and twenty-years-old. The other high school boys are the same. Either they're adult-sized or they're child-sized. In a manga with otherwise superb artwork, it's something that's always irked me.)
