JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a 2012 anime adaptation of the 1986 manga of the same name.

Plot

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure tells the story of the Joestar family, a family whose various members discover they are destined to take down supernatural foes using unique powers that they possess (powers like Hamon and Stands). The manga is split up into 8 unique parts, each following the story of one member of the Joestar family, who inevitably has a name that can be abbreviated to the titular "JoJo". The first six parts of the series take place within a single continuity, while parts 7 and 8 take place in an alternate continuity.

Why It Rocks

  1. The animation is top-notch and exhilarating, courtesy of David Production.
  2. Each part has its' fair share of protagonists with unique traits:
    • Jonathan is a kind gentleman.
    • Joseph is a cocky and rebellious warrior.
    • Jotaro is an angsty teenager with his sense of justice.
    • Josuke is a delinquent who also helps others.
    • Giorno is a gangster with a heart of gold.
  3. Even the side characters are just as memorable too, such as Caesar Zeppeli, Bruno Bucceliati, Noriaki Kakyoin... to name a few.
  4. The parts all offer an interesting plot.
  5. It faithfully follows the manga, scene by scene, while adding a few new elements not presented originally.
  6. The fight scenes and defeat of the villains are also epic, memorable and are fantastically played well, like Joseph's fight with Kars, Jotaro's fight with Dio, the 7-page Muda by Giorno, and Sunlight Yellow Overdrive.
  7. Poignant moments here and there, like the deaths of Kakyoin and Iggy.
  8. Amazing voice acting in both Japanese and English versions.
  9. Interesting villains, such as: Yoshikage Kira, Dio Brando, Kars, and Diavolo who are very solid, intimidating and highly entertaining all at once.
    • There are also memorable-even respectful secondary/minor antagonists that had well-explained incentives, limited but not limited to: Wamuu, N' Doul, Daniel J. D'Arby, Prosciutto and Risotto Nero.
  10. Memorable openings that would even had variation by the final duel.
  11. A lot of unforgettable dialogue and scenes that spawned memes and other cultural references.
  12. SONO CHI NO SADAME.

Bad Qualities

  1. Despite it following the manga, there is a lot of filler, which feels like a waste of time.
  2. While most of the villains are interesting, some can be very forgettable (such as Alessi, for example).
  3. Some cheesy dialogue.
  4. Like in the manga, there are some plot holes.
    • Despite the "Araki Forgot" becoming a meme, there are a lot of plot points that retcon the previous parts.
  5. Some of the JoJo's themselves can be unlikeable, being that;
    • Jonathan can be too gentle at times, unless angered.
    • Joseph in Part 2 can be rather perverted, as he unknowingly peeked at his own mother. His antics may come across as annoying.
    • Jotaro frequently had been disrespectful and nonchalant towards women, even his own mother. He often is aloof and can be easily angered. He also can be rather overpowered as he often wins battles without suffering real damage that would push him into struggling, until Part 4 where he deals with Sheer Heart Attack.
    • Josuke would lapse in a berserk state every time someone insults his hair, and will attack even his allies. He also can be sometimes nonchalant about his surroundings, only springing into action once his hair is insulted.
    • Giorno can be bland and dull personality-wise.
  6. The occasional animation error tends to be quite noticeable.
  7. Has lots of unlikable characters (many of which were in the manga too), some being: Jonathan Joestar's bullies (who are by the way, karma houdinis) and friends, Dario Brando (Dio's father) in Phantom Blood, a group of restaurant-goers who laughed at Joseph Joestar , Steely Dan, and Alessi in Stardust Crusaders, the two policemen who are arresting Joseph in Battle Tendency, the delinquents that Josuke fought in Diamond is Unbreakable (though they got their comeuppances, unlike Part 1), and Giorno Giovanna's stepfather in Golden Wind, to name a few, but most of them are kinda forgettable.

Trivia

  • This series is known to spawn tons of memes such as "Kono Dio Da", "ZA WARUDO", the Duwang translations of Part 4, The Part 5 Torture Dance, Kakyoin's "Rero Rero", To Be Continued, Hayato, Koichi Pose, Oingo Boingo Brothers theme, "This is the taste of a liar", "SHIZZA!!!", "This is the greatest high!", Yoshikage Kira theme, Pillar Men theme, "I refuse.", "7 PAGE MUDA", "I got an erection.", "German science is the best in the world." and many, many more.
  • Despite the number of animals being hurt in the show, particularly dogs, Hirohiko Araki revealed he actually does like dogs and has stated the reason why he does this is so that the viewer can hate the character even more, as he also intentionally draws the villains uglier than the protagonists.
  • Both Kyle Hebert (Noriaki Kakyoin's English voice actor) and Jon Bailey (Honest Trailers) had made a few guest appearances on Nostalgia Critic's YouTube channel. Also, Kyle Hebert provides the English voice to Ryu in Street Fighter.
  • Kellen Goff (Diavolo's English voice actor) is also the voice actor of Funtime Freddy from Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location.

@SuperSteetKombat Ok here goes:

  1. The major problem with this part is the filler arcs. I understand that Araki wanted to make more characters with stand abilities, but they go on for too long, and have no significant relevance to the main story.
    • The subplot with Alessi and Polnareff as a child happen to be one of the most pointless and hated stories I have ever seen.
  2. It relies on toilet humour. Very juvenile, and very childish. Much like the humor from both movies: Disaster MovieAMW, and Step Brothers, which is not a good thing, because both Step Brothers and Disaster Movie happen to be one of the worst movies ever made.
  3. While stands are cool, they were never established in prior parts.
  4. The characters are baffling:
    • I find Jotaro unlikable, and a bit of a Gary-stu, and his battles with other villains become more stale as it goes on.
    • Joseph went from being a badass to a cowardly old man that mostly panics over the smallest things.
    • Jean Pierre Polnareff is an annoying comic relief.
    • Dio Brando is still a generic villain.
  5. The dialogue just gets worse.
  6. The talents of the actors/actresses voicing minor roles (Rie Kagamiya, Rie Takanashi, Lauren Landa, Masaya Onosaka, and Xander Mobus) are wasted.
  7. While I find Muhammad Avdol much more interesting than the other three, he gets killed off easily, without having an arc, nor a chance to shine.
  8. The characters never stop screaming.
  9. The way Jotaro gained the power to stop time was never explained.

You know Joseph was a cool character in part 2, but in part 3 he just became a comic relief character.

He was still good in Part 3, regardless, IMO, especially his "OH MY GOD!" quote. Additionally, he had an integral role in that part and was also a comic relief in Part 2.
