It's in the title so it might as well go here. :p

Anyway, i wondered if anyone here read the series, wanted to read the series, or even hates the series.

Anyway, i wrote a recommendation in the recommendation thread (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=814.msg67061#msg67061) so you can get any info there.
Also one of the reasons i started this thread was because Araki spoke at a college at Nagoya College in the Aichi prefecture (some translators here mentioned their experiences with the dialect.) There is a description of the lecture here: http://www.comipress.com/?p=350 (notice the ageless link at the top. I want to take whatever he is taking to stay that young)

I've read it and I love it :tem I've only read parts 3 & 4 though.
I own all the volumes released by Viz so far too

Thanks for the link, Neoshweaty! I used to enjoy the Jojo series quite a bit (with my favorite series probably being part 4 though Stone Ocean was pretty good too). You gotta love a 70+ volume series featuring some of the most ridiculous powers and characters out there. For coolest/cheapest stand power though, I still vote for "Weather Report."

NeoShweaty
July 01, 2006, 06:19 PM
Part 4 was one of my favorites too! That one is vastly underrated by most fans.I love josuke and crazy diamond. The villian screamed queen with his stand and queen (RIP Freddy T_T) is one of my favorite bands.

Stopping time isnt cheap to you? I mean not everyone is as great as Jotaro.

I love Crazy Diamond too! Part 3 and Part 4 were kickass!

I can't seem to get into Part 5 though. Need... HQ... scans...
The stuff that's out there isn't doing me very good on the eyes.

NeoShweaty
August 04, 2006, 01:44 PM
shinwei, we think the same thing about part 5. I wanted to do higher quality scans of part 4 on but alas, nothing ever became of it.

shinwei
August 04, 2006, 01:46 PM
I can't even find HQ raws. I'd read those over VJP's stuff.

NeoShweaty
August 04, 2006, 01:48 PM
well, there was this huge torrent floating around with raws that were readable of all the series but the torrent is dead. (i forgot you can read japanese, la-di-da) I guess the next best thing is getting on share or winny

shinwei
August 04, 2006, 01:49 PM
I really hope they put Josuke with his Crazy Diamond into the new Jump Ultimate Stars game that's coming out this winter. Only Dio and Jotaro were playable in Jump Super Stars, and Jotaro was totally one of the best characters to play in there. His ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA move is insane! Not to mention he can tag-team attack with Luffy to perform the Gomu Gomu no ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA!!! that sends a million punches across the entire screen.

NeoShweaty
August 04, 2006, 01:51 PM
i love that combo. I hope they put Josuke in the game but i am not gonna hold my breath. Some Steel Ball run characters are more likely, even if alot of the stands in the manga arent very video game friendly or clear to me now.

shinwei
August 04, 2006, 01:54 PM
One of the most memorable moments to me in Jojo's Bizarre Adventures Part 3... was when the gang went to India and Polnareff goes to use the toilet...
Apparently the toilet sends all of the feces down into a pig's living quarters, and the pig can stick his head into the toilet (from the bottom side) and eat! They're supposed to lick your butt for maximum cleanliness!

I still can't get that scene out of my head..

I have a link to the part 3 scanlation.

and links to torrents for part 1 and 2.

I'm currently looking for the complete part 6...

NeoShweaty
August 07, 2006, 08:29 PM
funny you should mention part 6. It isnt complete but i aim to change that by starting, or starting scanlations for it.

You need to start downloading it now and reading it because jojo is too great

August 07, 2006, 09:56 PM
Wow I just started reading the series and I have to say this really kicks ass, unfortunately because of school finals and reborn this week I can't read any further until next week ;.;

EDIT: Are there scans of volume 60-62?

NeoShweaty
August 07, 2006, 11:00 PM
no not yet.Veggie is still trying to do it.

I do have to say that i have one of the last volumes of it and the end of series 5 kicks ass.

Anyways, for all of the readers of JOJO who want to read part 6, I'm starting to put translations of it from the part where they stopped here on my translation forum, it's for KO-Scans' use, as I were asked to do it by them (raw with translation, as usual with me ^^")

here is the translation:

oh sorry. My bad. Stupid me will try checking more carefully next time.

Seems pretty weird. Seems like being dealt in series and every one of these is another era.

NeoShweaty
September 11, 2006, 03:03 PM
they are all in different eras. Late 19th century england, early 20th century new york and other places, the 80s world, 1990s japan, 2010s florida and then again late 19th century america. The series is fucking wierd but it is way too good to miss.

I'm looking forward to reading your translations, ThE WoRm.

As side notes:

Also NeoShweaty, Weather Report is way more cheap/broken/awesome than Star Platinum (we'll save spoilers for other threads though...)

And any villian named Kira Yoshida is cool in my book (the 4th series really is gold)

I really need to go back and read things again (and pick up more of Steel Ball Run).

What exactly are Weather Report's powers? it is just weather manipulation (which is pretty crazy) or something else

Series 4 is a really good series. I rank it number 2 behind series 3. I just wish there was more interest in series 04 so we could see a game or ova or something. It is too good to leave in the dust. There might be a Steel Ball Run anime/ova but we wont know until Phantom Blood hits the theaters in march

Chapter 01 (http://ko.devserver.org/releases/stone_ocean/%5bKO-Scans%5dStone_Ocean_v01_c001.zip)

Here is chapter 01 of Stone Ocean. As soon as i can debind the manga, chapter 27 will be out next. Thanks for your help worm.... I love you..... (well, in the way that a man can love a guy that is helping him translate one of his favorite series of all time)

September 26, 2006, 08:10 AM
I might want to make the list of corrections of chapter 2 to 26 where I spotted lots of mistakes obviously made through the process of being translated from Japanese into Chinese.
Seeing Nameless-one san is a bilingual of Chinese and English and he must have trasnslated from Chinese to English faithfully, he cannot be the one that took the original meaning wrong.
I just cannot put up with all those mistakes in the chapters released by them , being a hard core jojo fan for a while.

... when i have time. maybe by the end of the next month, I will put up all of em. But I think working on the rest of the chapters is first priority, right? Since The worm san is so fast putting up chapters, I guess I gotta rev up running through what he has done.
The next two chapters are done.



I love the family tree in English. いい仕事してますねえ ギルちゃん :p

October 02, 2006, 08:24 PM

A lot of debate has been held for it huh

Personally I dont give a damn about it...Cujoh just doesnt sit well with me lol

Also, I suppose gil'd be really glad to see some trans constantly coming from you,
you can slow down if you want.
you are ahead a lil. ^ ^ A little. It is not bad thing at all, (in fact, great )I am just saying that your expereince with each chapter might slip into a state of "history" by the time I go over them and give feedbacks.

NeoShweaty
October 02, 2006, 10:28 PM
Cujoh is what the hell araki himself wrote for the translation. What do you want? I messed up on the family tree. sue me :P

luca6066
October 02, 2006, 10:53 PM
no big deal
*whatever* lol
I remember Jolyne holding up a name card "Cujoh"

ThE WoRm
October 03, 2006, 06:11 AM
That's why he wrote Cujoh, but the messing was with the fact that Jotarou's father was named "Kujo" in the tree :P
Well, although I see what you're saying, that's the rate we've decided on ^^" I can slow down, but if I have an agreement on something, I prefer to stick to it ^^"

luca6066
October 03, 2006, 06:24 AM
If the speed is fine with you, (and if you dont mind me saying something to what you did a while back) there is no problem.
It's cool to be fast, so keep it up plz ^ ^
But just dont go too further from us lol
(cuz that'll overwhelm me, j/k )
kudos!

I was like you before I started, but you can begin with any parts (7 is ongoing yea)
And each part isnt that overwhelmingly long:P
I started with part4
then 5 6
3
2,1
7 (and following it now)

Maybe I'll read one part eventually ( I'm running out of series to read, heh. )

Which one would you guys recommend I start with first?

Hai haaai :p
Sweet!

IF you are into Hokuto no ken (saga of north fist), or huge manly man's fighting manga(like Neo(gil) chan), Dracula(vampires),
start with part 1 and 2
Maybe this is the best to get into this manga cuz part1's ps2 game is poised for release late this month, and its movie will be slatted for a release soon!
awww *CUTE*!

If you are into comedy and funny yet cliffhanging one shots
go read part 4 :p Also its setting is Japan :p

If you like lol italian gangs and rather skinny but really chic and kick-ass badasses, and series of hard hard boiled battles
go for part 5

Ohh and part 3 must be most famous! REALLY AWESOME journey
I cannot stop loving it.

Having said that "you can start with any part", on second thoghts, it might be better to read part6 after part1,2,and 3. For better understanding.

Oh and part7 (steel Ball run) too, might be better to read after checking out part1,2,3. and yeah 6:p

and yeah massive spoilers but there sure is a wiki for everything.

Was it プッチ神父 by chance?

神父 (Shinpu) = Priest/Father/Padre

Enrico Pucci (the priest) is likely the one being addressed in this chapter (he's also quite the badass...). プッチ神父のスタンドはホワイト・スネイクだ。

ThE WoRm
October 13, 2006, 06:54 PM
Ha! Yes! Arigatou! I just thought it was his name because of the sama, changed it to "Father" now, good that I read spoils from time to time ^^"

There is no other 神父 other than Pucchi in this whole series. For future reference
Jolyne and her co will address him either Pucchi or Shinpu later on.
just so you know
Calling a reverend "Shinpu!" with no sama or san, is *quite* brusque/rude in Japanese language.

just a question upto what volumes has this manga been scanlated?

bax
October 14, 2006, 07:02 AM
So part three is when Jojo learned that his Star Platina can freeze time right?

And Part IV is about his nephew/uncle(?) thing that can control sound(?)... I need to read starting from here. Any place that I can look out for these?

Part 4 is about Jotaro's uncle! yea!
Joseff's wife is Susie Q, and their child is Holy, who gets married to Japanese musician, and their child is Jotaro(part3's protagonist)
While Joseff visited his daughter Holy in Japan, and during his stay, he had an affair with Japanese Younggg woman, who gave birth to Josuke. (Joseff was in 69's and the woman was in her early 20s I recall. )(Joseff goes back to USA without noticing she's got a baby, and he wont get to know it until Josuke turns 16) well and Josuke doesnt control sound.


Check out Veggie's jojo page

No offense to them, but I am afraid cannot say their scanlation is really high quality, tho... both in translation and cleaning raws. especially part4.

Well, there was this trick with part 3...

If you put those scans through a Black & White filter in Picasa2 they get a WHOLE lot more readable. Normally, they look like a baby pissed on em'.

October 16, 2006, 10:10 AM
I've seen a plethora of jojo reference in other mangas, paying homage to Araki, milking its unique beauty in a creepy way for all its worth with parodies, etc etc... already,
and so yeah I found em again
(*jojo spoiler alert* maybe)


I read through "G senjyou Heaven's door" (G(G pen)'s battle field, Heaven's door"
http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k124/lucachan/i216.jpg
Holy crap the title was obviously a reference to Rohan(he is a mangaka)'s heaven's door! Didnt notice that at first.
Drawing the other protagonist in the air oh lol

There sure is a Jojo refernce everywhere whoa

Oh and G senjo is really really × 1000 GOOD stuff。

It is just that I have never seen Jolyne and her co call her Foo. Either F.F. or Foo Fighters. Sure *her* name was after Foo Fighters. Yes I know.


That's why I called him foo,

ah I hate to nitpick, but FF decided to be a girl now that *it* is in a girl's body.

See *it* calling herself あたし huh...and I remember there was a part *it* is reasoning that.(...that *it* didnt have sex from the start, so now that *it* is in a girl's body, it'd be better for *it* to use あたし/act like a girl (←tomboy tho!)...)

So FF is "She"... definitely...
proclaimed... but still.

I don´t get it either. Maybe if it still ran in Shonen Jump people would care.

Maxy Barnard
January 27, 2007, 11:08 AM
perhaps, but people care little about many current jump comics too. I guess it's all down to word of mouth and promotion. hence why the three big scanlated manga are well promoted licensed series...

but hey, this is one of the best, and to all who find it a real gem. especially parts 2, 3, and Steel Ball Run.

i totally love this manga, especially part 3 and 5(well, i'm italian :D)

araki is TEH genius, period. Here in italy steel ball run is still at volume 8, but 9 will be released in the next few months...and it's still great, just like the previous 6 series *____*

Jean Valjean
February 28, 2007, 04:27 PM
I agree completely. Araki has gone beyond creating a world for his manga, he has created its own universe. I can name very few manga which have had as many characters or run as long as JJBA has.

And now to go off topic from the rest of my post, does any one have any pictures of Johnny Joestar's stand? Its the only one of the Joestar stands I have not seen.

Hmm. Not sure how I should go about on doing this. ^^;; Slightly scan related.

First non scan related: I'm up to the last volume of part III...T__T at the Vanilla Ice battle.

Now, scan related. This is the only place I could think about posting this. ^^;; If it's bad, then please edit anything of this out.

As some people know, Demonrin and I have picked Jojo up as a second series to do when we aren't doing Hellsing(which we're currently working on HQ tankobon scans for volume 9, which is more priority than the recent chapters, as a group called Hiranomoe is currently handling it very nicely). We were originally going to start from Part III to give higher quality versions of that, so people would have to say a "non-yellow" version. We even released a single chapter from volume 14 as say...a test. People liked it, but they wanted different, and Rin and I decided to go into some discussion. Due to popular demand, and because we feel the need to do this more. We decided to start releasing Part IV. People always say how the current ones are nearly unreadable. I myself haven't seen much of them, and certainly don't plan on it. But in the end, we decide to go full time on Part IV of Jojo! This will hopefully please many fans as they'll now have a more readable version. =O

We've been kinda slow with it, needless to say. Mostly translation wise, and thanks to many factors which throws us off coarse, like Smash Brothers Brawl for example. XD But, we have started to get more into line on the work.

One thing though, is image quality wise, it won't be HQ, sorry to say, as the raws we have have some slight issues with tones and such, and the pictures that used to be in colour in the magazine look especially off. We're mainly releasing using these raws until we're able to purchase the Part IV Kazenbans which we've desired for so long, as they provide possibly the best quality possible, coloured pages included!

I released these on another forum I go to, but I feel I should post them here too. Rin and I put together a quick sample to show that we are indeed working! It's only the first 8 (9 if split the spread) pages, but it's enough to show how they'll look (at least the pages that used to be colour, for example), as well as show translation wise how we'll do and compare.

And a note on translation.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, as you know, is a very multi cultural series, ranging all around the world. Araki likes to illustrate this very well. Part IV, in itself, takes place pretty much in solely Japan. For that reason, we wish to preserve the aspects that Araki shows with around the world. Honorifics for example, remaining intact(will give notes when appropriate though), as well as certain words, like "senpai" for example. This also applies for the naming order, for example, Kujo Jotaro. A note on this, is in the raws for Part III, Araki did the naming order properly for everyone non-Japanese(Joseph Jotaro, for example), and when writing out Kakyoin's and Jotaro's names, wrote them in the Japanese order.

Also, a quick note on the usage of the word "fuck". I myself don't like reading Shonen manga filled pack with swears, when really, they are not needed, or the dialect is incorrect for it. But the thugs here in the sample are speaking very rude Japanese, and the language usage was the best way to show it. (Same will go with pretty much any character using quite rude Japanese, only using curses when deemed necessary, for example, Josuke, who speaks quite politely to the thugs questioning him, until at least they insult his hair, THEN he gets nasty. *Grin*) And there you have it!

So, without further a due, here they are!

Well, "fuck" isn't as criticized in ES21 where Hiruma, the most popular character, says it almost every other sentence. So I don't know why it should be in Jojo's. You should be fine there, I think, Zera.

We don't have that large a Jojo's fangroup here it seems (or it seems most of them are lurkers) so it's good to see new people possibly filling that niche here, as a helper, possibly. Maybe you can help us there, Zera. :)

I see what you mean by not having a large fanbase. X_X It's quite surprising since this IS a site dedicated to scanlations, and it's surprising that Demonrin and the other two members(one being I) are the only people that are in this place who felt the need to pick up the series and release more readable scanlations for part IV, and later part V. It also surprises me since Jojo is a very popular series in Japan. o_o

With the helping, hmm. Since I am Demonrin's Cleaner, textsetter, and script editor/translation check(making sure the words flow correctly, proper word usage, etc. Not actual translation) I'm not exactly sure what you mean by helping here. XD What we ARE looking for though, are possibly more text setters, as Jojo is dialog filled, and lots to note on. Our current status is 1 chapter out of 9 are currently complete, and I already had to put in several notes on some dialog. XD Rin is also looking for an assistant translator, since personal stuff gets in the way a bit, and with a reliable assistant, we can get these typed out quicker.

The current goal: Release volume 29 by March 9th, as that's when Super Smash Brothers Brawl is released. XD (I also got to shove Rin into the site to make a certain Help Wanted topic that's months overdue. XD)

Alright, this is thread necromancy on a massive scale, but I've taken an interest in JoJo over the course of this year. And having just caught up (with Steel Ball Run, but we don't have a separate thread for that, and it's just Part 7 anyway), I've decided to bring back this thread so as to attract any other JoJo fans that may be lying around.

Anyway, I guess I'll start off by saying that my favorite Part is Part 2. I know that Part 3 is the most popular, and I've heard a fair amount of people say Part 4 or Part 5. But I like Part 2, because Araki's theme of "legacy" was much more present than it was in future Parts. Even Part 3, which was still part of the "Core Story" (Joestars vs. vampires/Dio) did not have as much to do with the preceding Parts as Part 2 did with Part 1. And Araki also had a plot in Part 2, something he didn't have again until Part 6, nearly 10 years later. And it was a good plot to boot. Plus, his "one-upping" style of writing fights was arguably at its top in Part 2 (Joseph vs. Wham is on many levels brilliant, and Joseph vs. Cars is a thrilling fight, an emotional rush that really gets you involved in what's going on on the page. I thought that it was very well-crafted, and its one of my favorite fights in manga.) Plus, there's the man himself. While I couldn't stand Joseph Joestar until around volume 7, when he fought Santana, I grew to love him. His cockiness, his good-natured laziness, his surprising dedication, they all make him into a very likable guy, in a very different way from the amiableness and "goody-two-shoes" feeling of Jonathan (which I respect and like him for, although most people tend to dismiss Jonathan in favor of Joseph).

I love the other Parts too, and Parts 3 and 5 especially are among my favorites (the fights and Stand powers were devilishly brilliant in those fights, plus Part 3 had a great cast of characters, some vestiges of the "legacy" theme, and some very well-crafted epic moments. Although Part 4 had its moments, such as the Man in the Tower arc, that's a favorite of mine.) But to me, Part 2 had something special.

June 12, 2009, 10:47 PM
Hear JoJo's pretty insane. I think I read the first couple chapters of Part One waaay back, but I'm thinking about checking it out again. People have told me to start on Part Three, but I'm usually one to read from the start. Where do you generally start and how are the scanlations?

Imitorar
June 13, 2009, 09:36 PM
Start from Part 1. It's only about 12 volumes until Part 3 anyway, and you can't REALLY understand the feud between Dio and the Joestars without Part 1. Plus, Part 1 and Part 2 are just plain fun. There's absolutely no reason to skip them.

As to the scanlations, the translation quality is fine for the first three Parts, although remember that when Jotaro says "well well", he is actually saying his trademark phrase "yare yare daze", which basically means "gimme a break", but the scanlators couldn't think of that translation. As to the picture quality, the first two Parts are fine. However, Part 3's scanlations are among the oldest around, and so the picture quality after the first volume is a bit... iffy. It's not BAD, really, but the images don't look clean, they look like they were scanned from paper. It's hard to explain, but once you get up to Part 3 you'll see for yourself. I didn't find it an issue at all, and the only scanlations for Part 3 are Veggie's, so you'll have to make do. But again, it shouldn't be an issue. You can get the series from Veggie's JoJo Page (http://jojo.highervoltage.net/).

Jojo's great, i've read parts I to III, V and VI, i'll read part 4 and Steel Ball Run next (i've started reading both)
i just hated the end of part VI
with Pucci creating another universe, why????
there's no Jotaro now, Jotaro was cool...
Oh god i hate Pucci so much, he was a great villain but not as cool as Dio or Diavolo...in the end he was only a Dio wannabe that completed what Dio couldn't...
i know in SBR there's Gyro Zeppeli, Johnny Joestar and Diego Brando, but it's not the same, oh man, i wish by some chance they would remember what happened in themselves on the other universe

Imitorar
June 22, 2009, 12:22 PM
Actually, in light of certain Stand powers in Steel Ball Run, I've been wondering if Araki will take the chance to restore the series to the original universe. But I don't really know how that particular Stand works, I've only heard things about it, the scanlations aren't up to that part yet.

As to Part 6, well, I guess Araki just felt that 15 years was time for a change of pace. He removed the need to care about most of his original continuity by having that universe end, and could start completely fresh. Not that he started COMPLETELY over in Steel Ball Run, but a lot of the rules have been altered, and the need to play off of elements from past Parts is gone. By ending Stone Ocean the way he did, Araki basically left himself more free to do new things than he'd been since Phantom Blood.

It was certainly an impressive ending, and I didn't take the loss of Jotaro too hard. His Part ended 11 years before Stone Ocean ended. He got cameos in Parts 4, 5, and 6, albeit mostly for fanservice, although he contributed in all but Part 5. But it was time to retire Jotaro, to move the story on from him. There was only so long that he could play off of occasionally reminding people of Part 3, and now Araki has to work with a whole new story. I don't mind, because that phase of JoJo was finished anyway, and I don't mind it being finished canonically as well.

yeah it may be true, but i wouldn't have mind if i saw another Jotaro vs DIO fight during the last battle, something like Pucci saying as he has absolute power he revives DIO, because of all the battle, Jotaro seemed a little out of that group, even if he was one of the clues for defeating Pucci...
if they would make a decent anime... some of the greatest scenes in Jojo like:
Part I:
-The first moments with Zeppeli on how to use Hammon
-Jonathan vs DIO

Part II:
-Joseph's training how to use Hammon
-Joseph vs Wham -> this would be awesome
-Joseph and his group vs Cars

Part III:
-All the stand users that were skipped in the OVAs
-A GOOD ANIMATED ROAD ROLLER COMBO and not that cheap truck that appeared in the OVAs
Part V:
-Giorno vs Cioccolata (specially the last mudah combo and the moment in which he says wrrryyy <in the videogame they skipped the wrrryy>)
-Giorno and his group vs Diavolo
Part VI:
-Jolyne and his group vs Pucci
-and of course, all those sentimental deaths that we've seen in the manga from Zeppeli to F.F.

i really like how Araki does final fights, the "Final boss" of each series gains the ultimate power and the situation goes chaotic beyond the limits of imagination, like in part II with the perfect being, or in part V with Silver Chariot Requiem, also with time acceleration in part VI
it gives a very special feeling that things can't go worse, because you don't only see the protagonists suffering like in other manga/anime, you see all the entire zone near them in chaos

Imitorar
June 22, 2009, 11:24 PM
Yes, Araki's endings are certainly something. Although I find Part 5's, and to a lesser extent Part 6's, ending to be a bit lackluster. It's just that they never really fought Diavolo. The hunt for the Arrow was fun, but after that, there was no fight. Just Gold Experience Requiem utterly defeating Diavolo in defiance of most logic. I mean, Dio was fought, twice. Cars was fought. Kira was fought. Diavolo, however, never really fought anyone except for Risotto, and sort of Bucciarati. And Pucci did have a fight, but not a traditional JoJo-style final battle, in part because Araki had a universe to reform. I found it more satisfying than Part 5's excuse for a final battle, but not by so much.

Oni_James
June 25, 2009, 02:46 AM
I finished reading Part IV and SBR to the current scanlated chapters. The last scanlated chapter of SBR is so shocking... :eek:
Part V and VI endings were not as strong as the other parts endings as you say. Part IV was just awesome with Kira being cornrered like a rat and then time stop...killed by an ambulance or a truck... xD
As for SBR...all the Devil Palm's stuff is just like the arrows, may be we se the sixth arrow we didn't see in all the jojo's universe, because if...
Contains spoilers of SBR until chapter 38->
they are gathering Jesus' corpse, everything is posible
lol when i saw Jesus at Blackmore's side i thought "what has happened to Araki? has he gone religious or something?:lmao"
I think Jesus' corpse will be the key for unleashing an allmighty stand that could connect both universes and may be the caotic ending of Steel Ball Run will involve several characters from the original JoJo

I'm really anxious to know how he's going to wrap up the story with ONLY 49 pages to go... I mean in 69, he pretty much used 9~10 pages for that darn 5 seconds... :p

It's really hard to see how Johnny can come back from that. Are we going to get an ending where Dio can finally win? :p Or are we going to see some thing like Act 5 or Final Act from Johnny, where he gets to use spin of the entire planet earth? (rofl)

I've read somewhere that the final chapter is going to be a little longer. I was thinking exactly the same about Final Act xD

I'm not sure Ultra Jump did give freer rein on SBR. The usual length for SBR's chapter between 45 to 50 (I think). And SQ does have series with same length as SBR. I think WSJ editors did give freer rein to Araki when he serialize SBR in WSJ. SBR was serialized as 31 pages per week, but it serialized for 10 weeks and on hiatus for 10 weeks and back to serializing 10 weeks again.

If Araki thinks weekly is too much workload, then I want Araki to move to SQ. (I don't want to buy either Young Jung or Ultra Jump for just one series).

So it sounds like... the Jojo this time around is Higashikata Joushuu, and he's not actually the sailor guy?

I wonder if this is gonna be like Part 7 with Gyro and Johnny kind of sharing the protagonist role.

So while I've only read the original but not the scanlated piece,
how do you guys think of the story, and jojo in particular?

Still haven't read the entire final chapter of Part 7, though I'm feeling quite
depress regarding the content in general.... too much sadness without
a "happy" ending.. > <

As for this 1st chapter, lol the brief encounter between the protagonists
reminds me of Popeye meeting Wendy from Wendy's ! I'm not surprised if
the 'weird' guy is going to join their team and venture outward back to
the main city (and they can't, for the obvious bizarre nature of the plot).

Then there's the eyes of wall (did i interpreted it correctly?) and the
floating Star and the bite-mark....

T_T It was epic and I was saving it for the summer. Hope he end it will, and I will read this 1 too. Thanks Hangedman for the news.

BTW jojophile didn't u get tired of always a happy ending?? That is what makes Seinen better than Shounen. No more ridiculous stories where the hero always win without any lost from his side, or the hero tell the villein to stop then he really stop saying my bad.

47p, less so than 90p from Part 7.

Next year is Jojo 25th anniversary.

Hirose Kangbao(tentative), is the girl heroine,
same last name as Koichi Hirose (Echo ).
? Higashikata (from the last name of Josuke Higashikata ),
her childhood friend, woke up in the
hospital with a similar "teeth marks" on his knee.
Apparently Hirose has a dog named Josuke.

JoJoLion (tentatively), seems to carry a
humorously exaggerated way of speaking like Okuyasu Nijimura.
His cap has the label "SBR 1891."
He seems to have discovered his name from his tailor,
it is Yoshikage Kira (Killer Queen )
(in which the name would later became a pun in another
of Jump's manga following in more or less the same plot).

am i the only one who wasnt really feeling part 5. for example what happened to giorno's ability to deflect attacks. he just stopped doing it. and he never really felt like the main character it focused mostly on the other members of the gang. i didnt even get that awesome sweet one more for the joestar bloodline feeling when he beat Diavolo. it was just like i barely know who you are. an they tried to explain the origin of the arrow and i would have rather them left that a mystery. it started out as a persons life force now its something that affects the cells what ever they said. now that i think about it there is alot of problems with the story. like how did SP get all those things for jotaro when he was in jail when he is a close range stand. and some of the abilities started to get abit to bizarre im just saying how would you even find out what your ability was. like the manipulating the iron in someones body or the mold when you get below his level( i think thats how it worked) im about to read part 6 and i assume the abilities are gonna get even dumber. now dont bite my head off i still love the series but sometimes i just get that what the fuck face. if it gets worse the series has tanked in my opinion.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Creator Meets Clint Eastwood (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-10-14/jojo-bizarre-adventure-creator-meets-clint-eastwood)


JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga creator Hirohiko Araki met American actor and director Clint Eastwood earlier this year as part of the celebration for the manga's 25th anniversary. Araki used Eastwood as a model for the character Jotaro Kujo, protagonist of the story's Part 3.

Araki presented Eastwood with a framed copy of an original Jotaro Kujo illustration, and Eastwood returned the favor by posing as Jotaro. The illustration and pictures of the pair's meeting appear in the JOJOmenon mook (magazine-style illustrated volume), which shipped in Japan on October 5.

So what's everyones favourite part?

Doraku
November 25, 2012, 01:18 AM
So what's everyone's favourite part?

Diamond is Unbreakable is the most favorite part of Jojo for me. It has good protagonist, antagonist, and cast in general. In terms of story line I will argue that DIU is superior compared to the other part. The setting where the story goes also different compared to the other. If I could choose the second place, I will choose Battle Tendency.

Crude
November 25, 2012, 01:26 AM
I think I agree with you. Diamond Is Unbreakable is just an all-around great story with great characters (particularly Yoshikage Kira). After that, I'd say Vento Aureo, mostly because of all the great battles. Jojolion is still pretty new, but it's been pretty interesting, if not weird and it could end up being another one of my favourites.

raDar
November 25, 2012, 12:23 PM
Ehh, for me I would say I enjoyed SBR the most, especially the first quarter or so. If we talk about the shounen Jojo, well I've only read until Part 3 and now more than halfway through Diamond, and I'll say I'm a bit torn with Battle Tendency and Diamond is Unbreakable. To be fair, I'll stick with SBR for now and wait 'til I finish DIU.


And JoJolion is pretty awesome too.:derp

Damn they're looking good! I just hope that they don't draw Joseph's face the same way the draw Jonathan's. Jonathan's face looks downright ugly at times (whilst Dio always looks great). Personally I wish that the art would follow the style of parts IV, V and VI, but I like how the animation team is trying to meld all of the series's styles into one uniform style.

Maxy Barnard
November 26, 2012, 12:04 AM
Man, those Battle Tendency designs bring me back. The first part of JoJo was alright but never the part of the anime I was waiting for (that's Vento Aureo and Stone Ocean), but BT? Yeah, that's gonna be a nice thrillride through memory lane for me or whatnot.

Only fairly recently got into the series after checking out the new anime adaptation of Phantom Blood and wow, was I hooked! Such a great series reflecting the author's unfettered imagination. So far I've read Parts 1, 2, 3 and 7.

I think Part 1 is fairly mild compared to the rest of the series but I think Araki was still wondering where to take the series. I liked the background on Dio and anime captured this part pretty well.

Part 2 was epic, Joseph is easily my favourite protagonist so far and the combat became more intense. I really liked Wham as one of the antagonists.

Part 3 seemed to be the most popular/well known due to anime and games based on it but personally, I thought it dragged on terribly.... The protagonists were great but I didn't care for chapters upon chapters of random Dio underlings (who pop out of nowhere) systematically assaulting the main party, with their minimal character development and their usual defeat after 2-3 chapters...it became a real chore to read after a while.

Part 7 (Steel Ball Run) might be my favourite, I really loved the story and the characters (esp. Funny Valentine). Fairly decent character development and interactions too, of both protagonists and antagonists. I found the last few chapters a bit odd/random but I love Dio so it was all very satisfactory =).

Might read Part 5 next..

If you can folks, don't dare read the Duwang scans for part 4, new ones were done here: http://www.mangatraders.com/view/file/47868

Part 4 is easily my favorite, and I find the previous scans (which you find on most other sites) turn folks away, its well worth the read if you ask me, though generally speaking steadynco JoJo parts 3-4-5 all have LOTS of "henchmen" fights, though I think it works a bit better in part 4 where the characters stick around and are not just random goons. That being said I enjoy some of the part 3 villains personally (moreso the ones you meet in Egypt) and Steely Dan with the Lovers.

I read part 4 and I loved it! I think it was far better paced than Part 3 and the side characters were generally more likeable (Rohan, Okuyasu etc.). The part 4 big bad Yoshikage Kira blows the bonehead Dio out of the water as an awesome villain (to clarify, I loved Dio from part 1 due to his personality and machinations but clearly the charm had been sucked out of the part 3 Dio, who really had no personal connection to the main characters nor really any purpose other than to be an antagonist). I found Kira really interesting because of his bizarre personality traits (hand fetish, paranoia), especially his desire to NOT be the villain XD. I liked how he appeared throughout the entire part instead of just at the end, whether it be in direct encounter with the protagonists or in some side story to give more insight into his life and mind. Killer Queen didn't seem that overly powerful but the stand was a huge threat due to Kira's strategic use of it (I liked this better than Dio's brute force method with The World). Some of the whacky digressions in part 4 were well appreciated too, in particular the cook that cures health conditions by first inflicting extreme bodily contortions and the man who lives in the phone tower.

I'm up to date with Jojolion now (really interesting so far!) and I've started reading part 5.

My favourite stand is Heaven's Door....it can be used to stun the enemy, extract his/her personality/thoughts/history and control....quite practical in today's world!

p.s. Stray Cat is quite cute when it isn't angry.

Glad to see you enjoyed Part IV :)! It really is my favourite part and also features my favourite villain in the series (yeah I've said this before but who cares :3c), and so much better than Part III. I really don't get why Stardust Crusaders is considered the most popular part. I mean to me it's kind of like Part I because it serves more as an indroduction to concepts that get developed on the following part (Part I having introduced the Ripple/Hamon and Part III having introduced the Stands). It's also wayyyy to episodic. It's good, but definitely not the series's best. I think part of the reason why it's so popular is due to Jotaro's design (what he lacks in personality he makes up for with a killer character design), Dio as the main villain, and the Stands.
Diamond Is Unbreakable is when JoJo truly becomes great in my opinion. Every part that comes after it is just as good, with Part V being my second favourite (Passione!). And Jojolion keeps getting more interesting. I really do wonder who Jousuke's second half is!

Oh, and by the way, Part 3 being animated has been practically confirmed. Check a couple of these new trading cards to see what I mean (credits go to http://onepixeljump.com/tag/jojos-bizarre-adventure-trading-card-game/):

Just wanted to say that I saw episode 20 of the newer Jojo anime and I was literally moved and swayed at the most beautiful and sad endings to a characters life I've ever seen. This anime needs an emmy. :"(

About damn time.Get Hype:nerd
Also the mopst recent Jojolion moved the plot quite a bit.

So at least we know the Higashikatas arent the big bads. They just want Josuke to find the true cure for the disease that kills their first borns. Based on what Norisuke seems to imply his parents died to rid him of the curse and Jobin''s mom did the same?

That theory doesn't match the dates.
http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/Jobin_Higashikata
Jobin was born in 1979, if the disease strikes at 10 and the mother died in order to save him, then Daiya and Joushu wouldn't exist, since their mother will be dead before they're even born.

Not my theory,just trowing what I've heard.

Only in JoJo you would see threatening chestnuts :D. It's almost impossible for Norisuke to be a villain now IMO but he is the most likely to die, his unrequited love discussion with Josuke was pretty hilarious.

I don't really understand how that Stand works.

This part is definitely the most bizarre of the series. S&W's power doesn't seem to have limits, even though he didn't want to kill him Josuke was really ruthless.

Now that rock men are confirmed to be other lifeforms, maybe we will know if Mikitaka was truly an alien?

Great chapter!

Tsurugi is really desperate, the faes of Josuke and Norisuke when they heard "Iwasuke" were priceless XD.

Norisuke shows his genius and his interactions with Jobin(I love his character design) are great, he looks a lot like Josuke, the fruit could really come from overseas given that he traveled recently. Just when I thought that Norisuke had forgotten about their goal it happened :D.

I hope Jobin is not a villain.
