    WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE THREAD !
    [​IMG]
    WHAT IS JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE?

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump and the current story arc, JoJolion, started in 2011. An anime has been made by the production studio, David Productions, and is what the series is most well known for outside of Japan. 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. 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". JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is special due to how it handles its serialisation - each part of JoJo's features an entirely new protagonist and cast of characters, as well as a new setting. Currently, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has 8 parts, with the 8th currently ongoing.
    These parts are:
    Part 1 - Phantom Blood, featuring Jonathan Joestar as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 2 - Battle Tendency, featuring Joseph Joestar as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 3 - Stardust Crusaders, featuring Jotaro Kujo as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 4 - Diamond is Unbreakable, featuring Josuke Higashikata as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 5 - Vento Aureo, featuring Giorno Giovanna as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 6 - Stone Ocean, featuring Jolyne Cujoh as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 7 - Steel Ball Run, featuring Johnny Joestar as the protagonist.
    [​IMG]
    Part 8 - JoJolion, currently ongoing, featuring Josuke 'Gappy' Higashikata.

    WHERE CAN YOU WATCH/READ JOJO'S?
    You can read JoJo's Bizarre Adventure in it's entirety, translated to English and in colour, here.
    You can watch the anime on websites like Kissanime, or Crunchyroll for free.

    PUBLIC RECEPTION TO JOJO'S
    The first volume of JoJolion was the second best-selling manga for its debut week, its second volume was number three and its third was number two. All three volumes were some of the best-selling manga of 2012. All three volumes of Viz Media's release of Phantom Blood and all four volumes of Battle Tendency reached the top seven positions on The New York Times Manga Best Seller list.
    IGN named the series a "must read", declaring the artwork of "a standard virtually unseen in most manga produced today". Rebecca Silverman of Anime News Network wrote that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure "combines a fighting story with a solid emotional background, and will absolutely put hair on your chest".
    Safe to say, JoJo's is a big deal.
    WORDS FROM OP
    Hey guys, just wanted to say that I love Jojo and that I hope this thread goes okay :)
    Try to keep spoilers hidden with spoiler tags - because spoilers are lame as shit, dude.
    I strongly encourage everyone who hasn't watched JoJo to give it a try, it's honestly a brilliant show and it's really worth giving it a shot.
    On that note - I hope you guys enjoy the thread!

    Diamond Unbreakable is easily the best one from narrative point, Stardust Crusader has some amazing fights. I only watched anime tho.

    i'm reading the manga right now, and im like halfway through part 6. i'd rlly encourage manga reading if you get the chance, it's really good.
    stardust crusaders has some of my fav fights in the series, but diamond is unbreakable's narrative is my favorite one that has been animated so far, and imo, it's the best animated part of jojo so far.
    i also the supporting cast in part 4 - they are all so lovable!

    I tried to read it, but couldn't. It is one of the hard to read mangas imo along with Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, Hunter Hunter and Tokyo Ghoul. Not all mangakas are good at drawing. I'll wait for series.

    alot of the earlier art is pretty ugly, i agree.
    sometimes the actions gets hard to follow in later parts as well. i had the same problem with AOT manga too.

    you should start with watching the anime series - it's really well made.
    then, if you can, read the parts that haven't been adapted into anime yet.
    the first 4 animated parts are really really good!

    I'm still stuck at part 6. Jolyne's storyline in the americana prison is boring

    i havent been keeping up w/ the part 5 anime since formaggio's fight sadly, but
    diavolo is simultaneously the weakest yet most well written main villain in all of jojo. his character is so deeply complex i can write a whol dam paragraph on this weak-ass man. maybe another day lol. diavolo isnt at all even my favorite villian but good lord do i love this character.
