They probably won't include some of the less physical ones. I'm wondering how Giorno and Buccellati are going to be. Really looking forward to playing as Jolyne. For some reason I'm growing to like her as I'm rereading Stone Ocean.

Well Gold Experience Requiem, King Crimson, Stairway to Heaven (though just because of how weird it was they'll probably use C-Moon), Dirty Deeds Done for Cheap -Love Train-, and Tusk Part 4 are pretty much confirmed for being in the game due to being protagonist and antagonist Stands.

Maybe Speedwagon as a joke character
Battle Tendency:
Joseph Joestar
Maybe Lisa Lisa
Stardust Crusaders:
Jotaro Kujo
Joseph Joestar
Vanilla Ice
Dio Brando
Diamond Is Unbreakable:
Josuke Higashikata
Koichi (Echoes Act 3)
Rohan Kishibe
Yoshikage Kira (Killer Queen using Stray Cat)
Vento Aureo:
Giorno Giovana (GE and GER)
Diavolo with Doppio costume
Stone Ocean:
Jolyne Kujo
Weather Report
Enrico Pucci (C-Moon)
Steel Ball Run:
Gyro Zeppeli
Johnny Joestar
Hot Pants
Diego Brando
Funny Valentine
>> No.41568  
That's a pretty solid list, but I don't see how Abbacchio would work, considering he 1) had like one fight, if that, and 2) Moody Blues really isn't a combat heavy stand.

Then again, most of the stands would be difficult to incorporate into the game, but we'll see! Hopefully, they'll do a good job!
>> No.41570  
It's funny. Back when I first read JoJo's, all the people I knew absolutely hated Vento Aureo and Stone Ocean, but I rather liked them. It was DUWANG I didn't like at first, until I finally saw the charm, not a minute too late. Stardust Crusaders is actually one of my least favourite parts, along with Phantom Blood. I think I like my characters to not be built like Hercules.
>> No.41585  
Ehhh, I don't like Stardust Crusaders for other reasons. Araki was still working out exactly what stands were and didn't quite have the hang of making them interesting imo. That really picked up in DUWANG (and went a bit crazy in later parts, but hey, it's fun).

I know, right. For some reason, I think he would be able to write a pretty decent JoJo's book, even if the moon people don't agree. Weird how no one's translating it. Oh well, at least we'll still have the manga (parts 3(?), 4 and 5 redone) with all its DUWANG glory.

Oooh, that's a good one! I always liked "taste of a liar", but that's probably just my penis talking. "How many breads" is also one of my favourites, along with "The next thing you're going to say is, ..." So many to choose from!

- Josuke vs Rohan
- Polpo's last moments in jail
- Zucchero's fate and the following victory dance
- Stroheim and Speedwagon butting in
- page 147 in Vento Aureo vol 9 (after defeating White Album
- fights VS Metallica
- Green Day and Oasis

What I wonder is how they're going to deal with scenes involving bullets (or other projectiles), as those move pretty quickly.

We still don't know how long it will go, though.

I tried reading this a while back, but the part 3 scans stopped me. Is there anything better available on the internet? I can read moon just fine, so raws are also an option.

I don't think this looks so good on Phantom Blood, but PB had a very different artsyle compared to later arcs, so I guess it's a matter of choosing a design that won't look so different from the rest.

It's hard to say how much of an appeal an anime like this has. On one hand it's based off a long-running series with a large fan base, but on the other, these fans aren't your regular anime-watchers. Adapting Phantom Blood might just be a way of checking the appeal of a longer JoJo's anime. The first part is also the shortest, combine that with hiring a new, cheap studio, and they won't lose that much money in case it bombs. It makes perfect sense, really.

They would be fools not to include Danny. Seeing him burned, in glorious full-color animation, hearing his yelps and howls as he's roasted alive, with the sad violin music playing in the background, and the sound of Jonathan's sobs and tears, has the potential to be even more devastating than it was in the manga.

That was one of the few times I can remember ever getting really angry at a fictional character. Emotional involvement with the audience is always a plus; as there's bound to be some people watching the anime who have never read the manga. Danny's death should at least get them invested enough in wanting to see Dio's fall. They'd be crazy to cut it. As for Danny's absence from the promotional art, I think it's due to marketing wanting to focus on the two leads of the story. At least, I hope that's the case.
>> No.42483  
Good point. I have mixed feelings about that scene, because on the one hand it is such a good method of getting us to hate Dio, but on the other hand, I don't want to see a dog, especially Danny, burn to death!

The trailer really has me pumped. Not the glorious sakuga animation I was fantasizing about, but then again, I wasn't really expecting to get that. The art is looking good, and though I dislike the changes made to some of the character designs (especially Speedwagon's), it's not that big of a deal.

The animation is looking to be about mid-budget. Hopefully the animation will kick it up a notch for the bigger battles. Am especially looking forward to Dio's tranformation / the mansion burning down. The direction is looking good from the tailer, as it looks like they're adhering very closely to the manga. Of course the manga is so full of life it could practically be used as a storyboard itself.

I was a bit wary of Jonathan's voice at first, but I really liked his 「エリナに何をしたー!」. Nice and hot blooded. And I thought Dio's voice was just perfect.

The quote at the begining that reads "二人の囚人が鉄格子の窓から外を眺めたとさ。一人は泥を見た。一人は星を見た。" is actually a Japanese translation of a line of poetry by English writer Fredrick Langbridge. The original reads:

Two men look out through the same bars:
One sees the mud, and one the stars.

It does seem like the trailer is focusing on the rivalry between Jojo and Dio, which is a good thing I think. But the cynical part of my can't help thinking that this is just an attempt to get fujoshi interested in the show.

But it's looking good so far and at this point I'm too stoked to really be objective about it. Just seeing a proper Jojo TV anime, the first in the 25 years since the manga debuted, is enough to get me delusional with joy.

So fuck yeah Joseph! I wonder how they'll divide the parts? Ten episodes for Phantom Blood, sixteen for Battle Tendency? Or will they go for an even split, thirteen for each series? I think it makes sense to give BT a few more eps, given how much longer and complex it is. At least I don't think PB would be rushed if done in 10 eps. But BT might feel compressed if done in 13.

The scene in the anime was nowhere near as rage inducing as it was in the manga because they left that out.

I did feel the episode was very well done otherwise. Good direction and competent animators made the most of the budget. Though they did compress some stuff here I was kind of expecting that they wouldn't spend more than one episode with Jonathan and Dio as kids. They at least established Jonathan and Dio's characters, that there is more to the stone mask than meets the eye, and that we should really fucking hate Dio.

All in all I'm happy with it an look forward to the next episode.

>> No.42904  
My thoughts exactly, too. I still think Dio's actions (and monologues) speak enough as it is, but it's kind of a mixed bag. "The Danny problem"...
>> No.42931  

I think the cutting out Danny burning had more to do with time than anything. David Production obviously wanted to spend only one episode on Jojo and Dio as kids, and so a lot of stuff was cut. Even the scenes where Jojo gets Danny, and all that stuff. Whereas Danny's death scene in the manga seemed uniquely outrageous, in the anime it was just the latest outrage in the long line of shit Dio was doing to make Jojo miserable. Reading the comments of people who've only seen the anime, most of them really hate Dio, but don't seem that outraged by Danny's death , at least nowhere near to the extent that manga fans were.

I think "the Danny problem" was more of a time thing, then. They just wanted to emphasize Dio's evil and Jonathan's victimization over all. It would be nice if the blu-ray version would have an extended first episode, including all the stuff they cut (you'd think for the price of the blu-ray that they could at least afford to include it). It's not going to happen, though ;_;

Direction and use of music is wonderful, Dio is even more deliciously evil than he was in the manga, Jonaさん is still a supergentleman, it's great. I can hardly wait a week in between episodes, and I already know that Part 2 is going to be even more amazing.

Ahhh, so much to say. I can't remember the last time I watched an episode of anime and had a big grin on my face the entire time. Everything about this episode was perfect. Sugita is such an ideal choice for Joseph, he just nails every line. The BGM was unique and a nice change of pace from PB, now that we're getting into a more comedic arc. The direction remains top notch, I'm super impressed at how cool this show looks with a tiny budget (pic related).

Joseph's antics are better than I could have imagined animated, and seeing him really lose it at the end of the episode was beautiful. I'm highly looking forward to NAZI SCIENCE which seems to have gotten another great VA. This should be fun.

I thought about that and while I will concede with the Cars part, I feel the Caesar one is too obvious with the way it shows him shouting out with the red bubble then showing to Joseph putting on the headband which the OP clearly shows is Caesar's and looking sad.
>> No.44051  
The OP doesn't make much emphasis in the headband, and to say it's obvious it's Caesar's is a little bold considering the art direction both show and OP have that makes the particular zig zag pattern blend with the rest of the elements present in the animation. It takes a couple of watches to make the connection I think. I didn't notice the blood bubble until after I watched the OP several times, and really, if you didn't know ANYTHING about Battle Tendency, would you look at that red sphere floating among many other colorful things and link it to blood or death?

The last scene is the strongest implication to Caesar's death, but it can just be excused as the obligatory lone MC shot showing him struggle, headband aside. People not familiar with the source material would probably take some episodes after meeting Caesar to make a connection, assuming they only watch the OP when they watch the episode, and not over and over like we are.

Dio's powers from part one are very different (or actually just forgotten) from his incarnation in part three.

Considering the amount of characters part six and part seven have, I don't think it's enough. Anasui is supposedly going to be DLC, but that still makes Pucci the only Stone Ocean villain available. I feel like this is wishful thinking but I hope FF makes it in too. It's just strange to have Jolyne and Hermes and not have her.

SBR stands can be a little tricky but you'd think they'd at least include Diego, being Dio and all. Phantom Blood is short so the limited amount of characters isn't really that surprising, and JoJolion is still really young so it can't be helped, but SBR and SO are both finished and have a lot of characters to choose from.

If they're willing to add characters like Akira or Shigekiyo it seems strange that so far they've overlooked those two parts like that.
>> No.46891  
Well with Stone Ocean there really aren't that many memorable villains that could work in a fighting game. That one meteor guy might work but other than that they all had really strange abilities.

I don't think this is gonna happen, since she's already relegated to support character duty in Campaign Mode. Weather's in a similar state, being a stage hazard and all, which is a shame.

Now Diego, he's absolutely nowhere to be seen (except for being referenced in SBR's story), so chances are good that he'll be a DLC soon.

I thought Vanilla Ice would be a stage hazard in the, well, Vanilla Ice stage, but since he's not and he's not in the game so far, he's probably another DLC as well, as with Anasui.

You're seriously thinking they're not going overboard with the DLCs and online model? 600 yen per character, with 9 characters so far, and you know they're still gonna make more. Okay it's 300 yen/free for now, but you're pretty much screwed if you got the game after the sales period ended.

The Campaign mode is a dumb way of extending playability. I would've been somewhat content if Bosses don't drop medals you already have, but nope, let's have them drop the same medals over and over and over! Oh, also there's no guarantee you'll have a Boss fight! And did we mention you only have 10 tries? But don't worry, you can buy more tries and buy increased encounter rate! Fucking wonderful.

It has a connection to Over Heaven, where it apparently confirms that Over Heaven is written by a fake Dio, which is really the only reasoning (or excuse, rather) there can be for the very out of character crap Nisio Isin tries to pass off as Dio's own words and thoughts. I don't know the specifics for this novel, having read the only available translated chapter, but it seems to be about Dio explaining how to reach heaven. I don't know much about these two but considering reviews I've stumbled upon and summaries posted on 4chan, I don't think they're very good, or rather, don't fit JoJo well. They are, along with Purple Haze Feedback (from Kouhei Kadono of Boogiepop Phantom fame), the most recent JoJo novels.

I'm much more interested in a translation for The Book, by Otsuichi. It's a murder mystery set in Morioh after the events of part 4, and tells different stories that I can only assume are connected to a murder scenario Rohan and Koichi encounter after trying to find the owner of a blood-stained cat they find outside a conbini.

Someone in nico adapted this novel into a series of animated comic videos of sorts, which I think is pretty cool. If you can read moon or just want to take a look at it, here's the link:

I kind of agree with you, now that you say it. He's got the strongest will, he's the best at getting out of sticky (hohoho) situations (or at least keeping me on the edge of my seat), and he's just a great guy. Much more interesting than Giorno, too.
>> No.48444  
Even that loaf of bread at the beginning of the arc was much more interesting than Giorno, so that's not saying much.

Though Buccellati is indeed a good character, even if he's too serious for my liking. For me, the best character from part V has got to be Mista and his Sex Pistols.

Man, I hope they keep most refined Imai-san as Sex Pistols' voice actress if they ever get to adapting that part.

There were some interesting shots here and there that were rather unusual for anime. The stands had a really cool presentation.

Can't wait to hate the second episode because of Kakyoin's voice change though.

am I the only one who is superbly pissed off at this VA change?

It's not that the new voice is bad or doesn't fit, but it's just too much of a change; Josif wasn't that raspy, and his sense of humor wont really shine through as it could have due to the change.

He didn't get fucked over, you're exaggerating. Sugita can't into old man voice while sounding natural at all, it's bad enough that his lines in ASB sound rather forced.

But that's OK since part 3 is pretty generic as well.
>> No.48713  
I don't find it extremely generic, it grows a little on me every time I listen to it.

Travelling to Egypt with your multiracial friends (and dog) with the purpose of killing the vampire at fault for the death of your great-great-grandfather (and his father too) and the sickness slowly taking the life of your mother using your ghost-looking human-shaped power that can see very well, extend its fingers to attack, punch really fast, draw like a pro, and, if you're pissed off enough, stop time, is pretty generic, yeah!
>> No.48722  
Another person who's not crazy about Part 3? I am agog, I am aghast!

However, I will say that it has several great fights, and it also has Iggy, Dio and my personal favourite Polnareff, so it still holds up pretty well to most other shounen manga.

And I think the new opening looks very very cool indeed. I love the hard work that's being put into this, unlike some adaptations.

Also, what's with all the "Joseph's seventy years old, so racism" jokes? I don't mind, but they feel kinda strange.

They skipped the introduction segment for that punchline. The part where he bumps into a jap at the airport that sets up that reoccuring gag really is needed, especially the part where josif rationally explains his reasons for his racial hatred.

It's not "he's old man so racist" it's "My daughter fell for one and moved to the other side of the world to be with him. THEY WILL PAY FOR THAT. THEY AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR MY DAUGHER AND I'M STILL UPSET THAT SHE MOVED OUT NEARLY 30 YEARS AGO".

I never liked Jotaro or Kakyoin (or Avdol, for that matter) very much when I first read part 3 five years ago (Jesus Christ, that feels like a short time), but that was probably because I'd grown so attached to Joseph, and did not want to imagine that the new protagonist could be any different from him (or even Stroheim for that matter), even if Battle Tendency was quite different from Phantom Blood to begin with. I like them quite a bit more on my second rereading, though.

Ah, good ol' ASB. I'd play it a lot more if every single update didn't break the game.

My friend and I stopped playing the game seriously since all the combo we came up with and practiced so much would become unusable in the next patch. It's still such a delicious visual treat, however, that I can't help picking it up again every now and then.

Speaking of games, there's a protoype Jojo Tabletop RPG system floating around out there that I'd love to play with /bun/. Does any bunbun fancy some RPG?

By the way, here's the system:

I've actually just read through it properly, and it seems like Dark Heresy and Exalted did some inappropriate things to FATE, and that system is the resulting bastard child. It looks very simple and more of a rules-light storygame, so it's not for everyone.

Isn't that the one that was written by SBR-verse's fake Dio?

Now that I think about it, most of the more memorable parts from Stardust Crusaders that I want to see animated are the comedy bits. And people say Diamond is the gag manga part!

I see. How receptive are you to rules-light RPG, though? From what my stalking tells me, you guys mostly play rules-medium/heavy games.

So I had a thought, in Part 3, the goal was to save Holy by defeating DIO and retroactively removing her Stand, right?

So how come Star Platinum, Hermit Purple, and Crazy Diamond (and maybe DIO's sons, but I can't remember if theirs was from Pucci's discs) exist in Part 4 onwards? I'm almost certain they weren't pierced by the arrow.

And I can't remember if we ever see Holy ever again or if we even got any confirmation that she got better, so did she died?
