Default JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

We should have a thread just for JoJo. It deserves as much. What a series!

I've listened to the new opening about 5 times in a row, and it gets better each time:

I made a thread for Jojo during the last show. It didn't last long.

Again, when I made a thread (I'M NOT BITTER!), my plan was to keep changing the title for stands that don't exist based on goofy novelty songs and one hit wonders. Then I found out I couldn't change my own thread titles.

But if you want me to think of some good ones, I'll try.

Jojo Had A Stand Who Thought He Was a Loner
Stands in the Place Where You Live
I Get That Reference
That Thing You Duwang!
Roundabout Makes Everything a Cliffhanger
Over 30 Years and Only One David Bowie Reference
The Joey Jojo Jr. Shabadoo Thread
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: The Show With a WRRRRYYYYYYYYY Sense of Humour (factually inaccurate)
Stardust Memories
Diamond Is Impeccable
Golden Win!
The Best Show in Za Warudo

Get Back, JoJo Thread

anyway I just started watching this show. I probably won't read this thread much for spoilers, but I've always wanted to get into JoJo after I played the PS1 game a ton back in the early aughts.

Watching it on crunchyroll, one of my favorite things is trying to suss out the band name references that are sometimes scrubbed from the subtitles. Currently Joseph is training to fight Wammu Wham, Karth Cars, and Asidisi AC/DC.

Eventually, I want to get JBear to watch it (Waiting for our Crunchyroll list of older shows to watch to dwindle) but I am concerned about whether to watch it on Crunchyroll or not. He could give a shit about song references (He's "not into music", which is fair but also seems insane in the same way if someone said they aren't into humour) but it's going to drive me nuts if he keeps calling stands "Zipper Man" instead of "Sticky Fingers" (though it is pretty funny) or calling "J. Giel" "Centerfold". That said, I'm sure he has good enough ears to figure it out since most of the musical references are English words.

Also, sometimes I am really bugged by what they decide to change. I understand the legal necessity for a lot of it but "Echoes", "Surface", and "Enigma" are just common words. How are you going to get sued for that?

And again, it's shocking that there's been only one Bowie reference in the history of the comic. Is Bowie not that popular in Japan? I know he isn't in China but that's a very different cultural situation (I actually got to introduce a guy to "Bohemian Rhapsody"! I was proud of that.)

the bizarre backstory of why I liked jojo is...

....I actually discovered the manga through memes and shitposting (at that time. Jojo is pretty obscure in anime, liking it would get you branded elitist and at that time. "Kono Dio da!" is considered to be funny when now, it'll get stale very fast)

then, I usually browses "special book" *cough*doujinshi*cough* and was shocked to find JoJo tag in there lmao. I read one and starts to get interested (what's this hamon thing? stand thing?) and I went to the wikia.

I just read stardust crusaders for fun, and it's actually good, and then I read it in order (phantom blood, battle tendency, stardust crusaders (again), DiU, Vento Aureo... the only ones I didn't finish reading is Stone ocean, SBR and jojolion because I'm seriously busy now :d)

....and that's how I got hooked

(I managed to convert my friend into a jojo weeb too lmao. It's hilarious to see him saying "uh, I'm not a big fan of jojo, it ain't my cup of tea". Now he can't stop talking about jojo "THIS IS MY STAND ORA ORA ORA" and he can't shut up about Josuke too)

I have no idea why it took me so long to realize, but they got the guy who sang the OP for Battle Tendency to sing Fighting Gold. No wonder this song is so amaze

The OP song is up on iTunes. But for some reason, Coda is singing it in English.

It’s a super clever storytelling beat; basically telling us this organization is going to be lousy with Stand users so be prepared.

Not nearly as weird as flying ghost photograph dad of a serial killer but I’ll take it.

Giorno's plan with the snake was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen and I loved it so much. I love that in the Jojo universe people think of the most bonkers solutions to extremely simple problems and the show dramatizes it so much. Fuckin' A+ beauty.
