Joutarou Kuujou and his allies have finally made it to Egypt, where the immortal Dio awaits. Upon their arrival, the group gains a new comrade: Iggy, a mutt who wields the Stand "The Fool." It&#;s not all good news however, as standing in their path is a new group of Stand users who serve Dio, each with a Stand representative of an ancient Egyptian god. As their final battle approaches, it is a race against time to break Joutarou&#;s mother free from her curse and end Dio&#;s reign of terror over the Joestar family once and for all.

The 2nd season covers the remaining 83 chapters of the manga (the Egypt arc).

Definitely some spoilers, don&#;t read if you don&#;t want to be spoiled.

Story: 3
The story became very repetitive at this point. Most of the episodes were: Go from current point to next point, encounter enemy Stand user, defeat stand user, repeat until we reach Dio. It became a monster-of-the-week series and it just felt really bland. The fights varied somewhat but in the end I was expecting a little more than what was essentially an RPG grind until you hit max level and go do an end game boss.



Art: 9
The art style definitely made everything feel more dramatic and dark, while the backgrounds gave a really good view of what Egypt looks like (at least from someone who hasn&#;t been there). The characters themselves are very detailed with proper shadings of clothing which makes them look &#;realistic&#;.



Sound: 7
The op of the first season was really good and it got you pumped up and it made you feel manlier just by listening to it. But this second season&#;s op just reminded me of Rozen Maiden, it doesn&#;t fit. The voice acting is the same as the first season so if you liked it there, you&#;ll like it here, especially hearing Jonathan yell "AWEEE MAIII GAWDDDDD" or "SHIIIIITTTT".



Character: 5
The villains felt very cliched in that they&#;re always over the top sadistic with no redeeming qualities. Each one was basically just &#;bad guy with certain bad trait&#; repeated over and over every episode until we got to Dio.

Dio - Dio maintains his arrogance and threatening nature which definitely made him feel like an end raid boss and reinforces his antagonistic role.

Joutarou - If you can call standing around, posing &#;cool&#; and saying "Yare Yare Daze" as being a character well he&#;s a character for you then. Initially, this was kind of cool, the nonchalant, tough without overtness attitude, but after two seasons of this composure, it starts to become dull and repetitive. Any encounters that involve Joutarou is basically resolved before it even begins and all you&#;re left doing is thinking how far his legs are going to be apart this time and how angled is his body going to face.

Jonathan - Not as cool as when he was younger with all his predictions but still a staple character that is hilarious when he swears/yells in Engrish.

Polnareff - Basically the comic relief of the show but his character really shines during his emotional moments with his comrades, especially Iggy.

Iggy - I initially didn&#;t like him as his existence felt out of place most of the time as he didn&#;t do very much, but in later episodes his character really develops and I liked him near the end.

Avdol - A firm, stable character that really cares for his friends and even sacrifices himself. Things actually happen to him which makes him feel mortal and human.

Kakyouin - Really stayed the same from the first season though his bonds with his comrades grows stronger.



Enjoyment: 7
Definitely wasn&#;t as enjoyable as the first season as the encounters with the other Stand users felt very repetitive and monster-of-the-week.



Overall: 6
At this point, it just became repetitive until we came to the final showdown between Dio and JoJo.

An action-packed adventure of fun, bizarreness, crazy gimmicks, and dangerous distinction. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders: Second Season (or Egypt Arc) provokes the question of what the audience wants to see next. The first half of the adaptation already showed plenty of Stands ranging from one that can attack via reflective surfaces, a parasitic being that can enter a victim’s brain, or even a Stand that can attack in dreams with Freddy Krueger style. The answer is simple really. It continuously deliver a source of imaginative and entertainment that almost anyone will find entrancing.

As a direct continuation of the first season, it’s imperative to watch it before venturing into the Egypt Arc. Otherwise, you’ll be wondering around like a goat in a desert. Propelled by the series’ vision to craft a dynamic adventure, we are introduced to new allies and enemies. Of course, the main cast returns as well including Jotaro, Joseph, Avdol, Kakyoin, and Polnareff. Joining them is a new ally in the form a dog named Iggy. Bringing in non-human characters into a series always presents a challenge but Iggy isn’t just an ordinary house common animal. He has a Stand and there’s even an episode that really brings out his abilities for the audience to see.

Because the first season has exhausted Dio’s resources and servants, we are introduced to new and more dangerous enemies for the crusaders. Adapting well with its Egyptian theme, these new enemies presents a challenge like never before. We have Big Bads that do all sort of otherworldly things that people can’t even begin to imagine. It really brings a focus to Jotaro and his friends as they struggle to survive. A good measure of the fights not just test them on a physical level either but mentally as well. The D’arby siblings are a good example of this as they rely on trickery and deception to get what they want by pitting their enemies in twisted mind games. Then, there’s also the creativity coming from the brainchild of the series, Hirohiko Araki. The characters he makes not just possess a diverse range of personalities but also has Stands that bring out their sheer tenderness. As daring as some of his ideas are, they work well when it comes to bringing a mixture of thrilling excitement, mystery, and humor.

Indeed, the comedy for the series is like no other. From the artistic style of Boingo’s Tohth to Sethan’s power of age manipulation, there’s almost something in it for everyone to witness. Furthermore, the gimmicks of the show return in full with our main characters’ personalities. They may all have different personalities but their goal in hand is the same – to save Holly from death. As such, expect the mood of the story to get more and tenser as the journey takes them closer and closer into Dio’s palace. However, there will still be times when the story feels like a ‘monster of the week’ style. Certain characters also makes reappearances that gives them another chance to shine. For what’ worth, this second season behaves in a similar way with the first half in conjunction with their journey. Then, the latter half really picks up the pace as we get to the grand stage. Patience is a key to understand and enjoy the show as David Productions is willing to adapt the most important element of the story. To capture that style of Jojo is never easy but adapting with a steady pacing with weekly doses of adventure is something to take granted for. As such, I recommend watching this show in a weekly style rather than a whole marathon. It will leave you wanting for more as each episode brings something new to the table. And when the battle against Dio draws to its climax, you’ll realize that the patience was well worth waiting for.

The artwork of the second season along with its soundtrack remains generally the same but still retains the sense of exhilarating fun. Taking place in Egypt, we get more of the classic Egyptian-like atmosphere with more desert themes involved. As such, expect the soundtrack to reflect a bit of that culture. Opening theme songs are also clear with its choice by orchestrating the classic Jojo style that we should all be familiar with by this point. Surprisingly though, the ED theme songs has a more vibrant and melancholic tune. While seemingly off balance in some sense, I find it to be captivating as it creates a sense of serenity. Finally, there’s also the character voices that each reflect dynamically at how the characters behave. The villains’ textural motives also has a good amount of credible voice mannerisms to make the audience feel what their roles are. Then, there’s the artwork that continuously dedicates itself to capture what this journey been – crude, dangerous, and insane. However, that’s all in a good way. (minus some editing of the censors) David Productions’ visual standards impresses with their work by delivering stellar landscapes, well-made architectures, and a wealth of character designs to make the audiences awe. Similarly, expect the action to blow you out of the seats with its extensive prowess.

In a nutshell, the second season is what you will expect and get. And that would be thrilling action packed adventure of non-stop pandemonium. It’s a show that unites all sorts of strange gimmicks to deliver what the audience wants. Assuming that you like stunts, unpredictable characters, mind games, or dynamic comedy, then this season will be quite a looker. Now, this might not be a show for anyone though. There are at times problems when people feel like pacing becomes sour and certain parts from the original source omitted. Or there may be certain characters that get lesser screen time than others. However, the adventure never stop at its mark and packs its bag. Instead, it shows why the series is called Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. And that is freaking awesome.

When you&#;re in the world of anime and manga, there are these popular and trending materials that are too long and big to take up and follow. No matter how hard you try to ignore these trends, they keep popping up, and it almost feels like it is impossible to stay up to date in the anime world without watching/reading them. At least for me, not staying up to date is like being dead in this world of anime.
JoJo was one of these trending things, and I tried real hard to ignore it, because getting myself in the JoJo world would only fatten up my backlog. However, then back in , I heard JoJo manga (which is quite old) is getting animated, and thought this was a good chance for me to get myself into the series.
May be I was crazy or something, but I thought at that time, it would be better for me to finish the manga before I watch the anime. This doesn&#;t mean you have to do the same thing and read the entire manga before watching the show! I mean, I loved the manga, but it&#;s really your choice, because the anime has done an excellent job faithfully adapting the source material.
The entire JoJo show is 26+48 episodes. I know it is a daunting task to watch all that, but the show is a fun-ride that is fast and satisfying.
My point it that JoJo is quite an old franchise, which is still very popular in modern times, so if you want to stop wondering what all the JoJo hype is all about, this fun show is an excellent starting point. I recommend you start watching this now if you are interested, because sequels might come flying in soon in the future (meaning your backlog will only get greateryuck)

So, if you are looking for:
Meticulously animated fun, swift, merciless, cathartic actions
Silly, over-the-top but clever thrills
Character interactions grotesquely fun
Ridiculously Faithful adaptation of the source material
Shows without silly unnecessary soap opera-esque romances and fillers
Manly Men full of manliness

and/or if you are just curious what all this JoJo is about

This show is for you.
(so if you decide to watch this, be sure to start from Parts 1 and 2 from ~)

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

I&#;m gonna make this quick since this is basically just a continuation of the last season, read my review of Part 3 season 1 for my general opinion on Part 3, as this only covers my thoughts on the Egypt arc.

Story: 3/10

First of he pacing improves drastically here, less time feels wasted, I think every fight being at least 2 episodes long helps that, instead of a large assortment of personality-less glorified monsters of the week, we get a cast of underdeveloped, but memorable villains, which I&#;ll elaborate more on in the characters section.

My biggest problem with the show is how shallow and lacking in substance it is, Jojo&#;s is often spoken of as if it&#;s some literary classic, a master class in Japanese animation, up there with Hunter x Hunter and Berserk, but with those series, they have themes, characters who develop, villains with interesting personalities or motives, something that makes people care about what will happen to the characters, but Jojo has none of that, there are no overarching themes, only 1 character (quickly) develops in the arc, the villain has neither an interesting personality nor interesting motives, Jojo, especially part 3, tends to be a nothing story, stuff happens sure, but it&#;s so bland, predictable and cookie cutter that makes me wonder how so many people fell in love with this show. Say what you will about Naruto or DBZ, at least they have themes and well developed characters, Jojo has NOTHING besides some cool fight scenes, so really, in terms of story, you&#;re better off watching any other shounen battle show.

One more thing, the way Jotaro beats Dio shows just how hollow Part 3 is, instead of using his wits, instead of taking avantaged of Dio&#;s weaknesses, instead of teaming up with another character, Jotaro beats Dio by punching him so hard that he explodes, yes really, that is actually the way this conflict ends, 48 episodes, all building up to Jotaro just punching the main villain really really hard, 48 episodes, that&#;s 16 hours, imagine having to site through 16 hours of boring characters and a story with zero substance, expecting there to be an awesome finale, and then it just ends with Jotaro punching Dio. Does this sound like a series worth watching?

Character: 3/10

For my opinions on Jotaro, Joseph, Kakyoin, Avdol, Polnareff and Hol Horse, check out my review of the first season of Part 3.

Season 2 introduces a dog named Iggy, for most of the arc he just wanders around, and outside of his debut episode and some of the last few episodes, does nothing useful, he just bites Polnareff and farts on him every episode, comedy gold, but then during one fight at the end, he suddenly develops into a hero, why? Because Araki probably realized now one liked Iggy because a character who does nothing but bite and fart isn&#;t really likeable, hey at least it&#;s something, it&#;s better than the other characters who don&#;t develop, at all.

Season 2&#;s antagonists are a vast improvement over season 1, rather than the glorified obstacles, we have a set of memorable, if underdeveloped and under utilized villains, these characters would be much better in the hands of a better writer who doesn&#;t use a monster of the week formula, but sadly they got stuck with Araki. Some highlights are Boingo, a shy kid stand user who&#;s not really evil but is force to do evil by his older brother whom he idolizes, and later Hol Horse, speaking of, Hol Horse is back, he hasn&#;t really changed but it was nice to see him one more time. There&#;s Anubis, not really that interesting but a userless stand that posses other stand users is a nice change of pace. There are also some really boring villains, similar to the ones from Season 1, like Vanilla Ice, who&#;s entire personality is that he&#;s loyal to Dio, same goes for Maria, who&#;s just another cackling maniac.

Dio is somehow even worse than in Part 1, at least in Part 1 he had a concrete goal, here, he just sits and waits for the heroes to come and fight him, he&#;s less like a villain and more like the final boss in an old video game, he has no personal connection with any of the main characters, besides Polnareff, but he&#;s out of commission for most of the fight, this is the first time he even meets Jotaro and Joseph, who end up doing most of the fighting, Jotaro barely cares about the quest they&#;ve been on for 48 episodes, there is no narrative or thematic reason for him to beat Dio, other than by virtue of being the "main character", it&#;s like Araki stopped giving a shit when it came to Dio, he gave us a cool fight but no substance, no reason to care about these characters.

Art: 8/10

Still great, check my review of Part 1/2 for more details.

Sound: 8/10

The tracks are the same as season 1 but the op and ed are changed, check my review of season 1 for more details.

Overall: 4/10

About as terrible as the last season, with only slight improvements made to pacing and characters.

Years after an ancient evil was salvaged from the depths of the sea, Joutarou Kuujou sits peacefully within a Japanese jail cell. He&#;s committed no crime yet demands he not be released, believing he&#;s been possessed by an evil spirit capable of harming those around him. Concerned for her son, Holly Kuujou asks her father, Joseph Joestar, to convince Joutarou to leave the prison. Joseph informs his grandson that the "evil spirit" is in fact something called a "Stand," the physical manifestation of one&#;s fighting spirit which can adopt a variety of deadly forms. After a fiery brawl with Joseph&#;s friend Mohammed Avdol, Joutarou is forced out of his cell and begins learning how to control the power of his Stand.

However, when a Stand awakens within Holly and threatens to consume her in 50 days, Joutarou, his grandfather, and their allies must seek out and destroy the immortal vampire responsible for her condition. They must travel halfway across the world to Cairo, Egypt and along the way, do battle with ferocious Stand users set on thwarting them. If Joutarou and his allies fail in their mission, humanity is destined for a grim fate.

I found myself stuck in the puddle of mediocrity that is summer season. Akame ga Kill, Tokyo Ghoul, Aldnoah.Zero and SAO II. I was slowly losing my faith in anime and on several occasions I thought that I should try to go outside my room and socialize with other Homo Sapiens. It was that bad.

Then

Then I saw a pillar.

A pillar of hope.

A pillar of testosterone and manlyness.

A pillar of Jojo.

Story: 10 pillars of hope/10 pillars of hope

"This makes my plays look like Mars of Destruction in comparison" -William Shakespeare

Where do I begin? At the start most likely. It starts with our hero Jotaro Kujo (This parts Jojo) sitting in a prison cell. You will be asking yourself: "How can such a man, who is the manfistation of coolness and manlyness be stuck in prison?" Then you find out he has put himself in a cell to protect people from the "evil spirit" that is possessing him. Now something will happen to you, but don&#;t worry. It&#;s just your body reacting to the heroic and noble sacrifice done by our protagonist. Ejaculations and sudden hysterical crying is normal.

Then he finds out that this "evil spirit" is something called a stand. A stand is a supernatural power that curtain individuals can use and each stand has different powers and different strenghts. Therefore to defeat different stands different strategies is needed. Jojo will bring Sun Tzu to shame with it&#;s genius tactics and strategies.

Due to certain events Jotaro&#;s mother gets infected by a stand and is dying. The only way to save her is by defeating the evil Dio (WARNING: wear swimming trousers each time he apears, because your panties will be wet after each time Dio has an appearance) who has haunted the Joestar family for years. So our hero goes on a journey like no other to defeat Dio and save his mother.

The plot is full of plot twists and asks alot of philosophical questions and answers them as well. The plot is complex like no other and is so well written I found myself suddenly crying because of how good and intriguing it was. After having watched Jojo I see the world in a different light and my IQ has been raised by 8 points. It&#;s that deep and philosphical.

Art: 18 reroreros/ 4,8 reroreros

"If only my art was this good"- Pablo Picasso

Your eyes are not decieving you. The art is truly this manly and fabulous. Currently in 18 nations around the planet Jojo&#;s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is banned because the art is so good it counts as a drug. The art is so good and testorene filled that it&#;s addictive. Yes. It is that good.

On several occasions I found myself drooling on the fantastisc artwork and character designs. Normally one would wonder why people are wearing school uniforms during a journey to the other side of the world, but not in Jojo, because it looks so good on them. Studios such as Ufotable, Shaft and Madhouse has a few things to learn here when it comes to amazing artwork.

Sound: Oraora&#;s/ ,82 Oraora&#;s

"Now that I have heard the voice acting and ost of Jojo i can die happy" -Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

I never thought perfection existed in this world. That was until I watched Jojo. Your ears will bleed of pure ecstacy while watching Jojo. Everytime I heard a "Oh No" or "Oh my god" coming from Joseph I had a ejaculation and nothing can prepare your body for "rerorero". "Rerorero" made all the citizens of a small village in Siberia cut off their own ears, because they knew they would never hear anything that good aver again.

My earphones exploded on several occasions, because it could&#;t handle Jojo&#;s voice acting. I&#;m now on my 23rd headphones. The voices fit the characters so good you will be thinking: "Were the voice actors born just to play these roles?" Yes they were. In several interviews the voice actors have confirmed that they have since birth feeled that they were born to be voice actors for Jojo&#;s Bizarre Adventure.

Characters: 5 wet panties/5 wet panties

"God, I wish I was as cool and smooth as Jotaro" -Immanuel Kant

The characters of Stardust Crusaders is the best part. You might think: "They can&#;t possibly be that good?" and let me tell you this: they&#;re not. THEY ARE BETTER!

First our lead Jotaro who is the embodiment of coolness. Jotaro is noble and manly like few other. Every episode you will scream out in despar: "How can Jotaro get out of this?" And each time Jotaro will use his manlyness and godlike intellegence and win against all odds. Side effects of this is you standing up screaming: "F*CK YEAH!" on several occasions. You will find yourself striving to be like Jotaro for the rest of your life after having seen him in action.

The side characters are also superb. They all bring their own distinct personalities, ideals and struggles to the story. You will find yourself drowning in different ideoligies and moralities. You will also start questioning your own morality and ideals thanks to this show.

The side characters are also fleshed out and gets development. When you are finished with this show you it will feel like you have known these characters for years, no, DECADES.

The show is also full of grey morality. The villains are fleshed out like no other and even brins Legend of the Galactic Heroes to shame with it&#;s grey morality. You will feel for both the protagonists and the antagonists throughout this adventure.

Enjoment/Overall: 10 manly tears/10 manly tears

"If I had to only watch one anime in my life, it would be Jojo" -Aristotle

I shed manly tears. I laughed. I was moved emotionally and I will never be the same man again.

This show is the show that saved anime summer season for me( it&#;s not even a part of the summer season.)

Jojo&#;s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is not only an anime. It is a piece of art. Words cannot even begin to describe it&#;s manlyness and fabulousness. I can only describe a small part of all the testosterone.

You should all watch Jojo over all the other mediocries that is currently airing and to help you understand that I have written this review. There is no need to thank me. Thank Jojo for being so amazing. Now, go! Go and watch Jojo!

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

I couldn&#;t just stop at the first season, seeing as the Part 5 anime just ended I&#;ve decided to look back on the entire Jojo anime, from Dio to Diavolo and tell you why I believe Jojo is the most overpraised anime to have come out so far. Part 3 is without a shadow of doubt the most iconic arc in all of Jojo, when someone thinks of Jojo, they usually think of this, it&#;s what cemented Jojo as a staple of Shounen, it was the first arc to get its own video game, it was the first arc to be adapted into an anime, it was the first part to be released outside of Japan, it&#;s also had the biggest impact on popular culture, being referenced in a multitude of anime and video games, it&#;s also, in my opinion, the worst part in all of Jojo by a country mile.

Story: 2/10

Now let&#;s start with the story, or lack thereof, simply put, the first season of part 3 is filler, and by filler, I don&#;t mean stuff they added in for the anime, no no no, I mean most of the episodes have no impact on the story or characters, no one develops, oh sure, some characters go from bad to good but that&#;s because they were under mind control, so it doesn&#;t really count.

Now to be fair, the first 5 or so episodes do set up the plot and characters, but after that, only one plot relevant thing happens before the season finale, none of the characters develop, they are the same boring cardboard cut outs from beginning to end, Kakyoin from episode 2 is the exact same person in episode 24, same goes for Avdol, Joseph, and Jotaro, the only character who develops is Polnareff, who goes from "I wanna avenge my sister&#;s death by finding her killer" to "I wanna kill Dio", thrilling.

One thing I&#;ve noticed is that this arc is where Araki developed his horrible habit of introducing plot points, characters, powers etc, and then forgetting about them almost immediately, a great example of this is Kakyoin, when we first meet Kakyoin he&#;s painting Jotaro, he paints red over Jotaro&#;s knee and then Jotaro gets a cut on his leg, this ability is never seen or mentioned again, then Kakyoin&#;s stand ability is changed to possession, it&#;s a pretty overpowered ability, which is why it&#;s dropped almost immediately and is only used once more. Another example is Star Platinum, when it&#;s introduced it seems to have a mind of its own, it brings Jotaro stuff while he&#;s in prison (which contradicts its later established 5 meter range), and it makes Jotaro believed he&#;s possessed, this is never explained and Star Platinum never shows autonomy again, it also demonstrates the ability to stretch its fingers and deliver a small but powerful blow the instantly kills an enemy, this ability is also forgotten about. Now I can understand an author forgetting about something like that gradually, but Araki forgets almost instantly, so either he can&#;t come up with creative ways to use these simplistic abilities in more than one fight scene, or he has a really bad case of dementia. Araki&#;s forgetfulness gets much worse as the series progresses, but this is where it started.

For fun I decided to see how much time this first season wastes, the team is established by episode 5, their is a plot important 2 parter, another 2 parter which undoes a plot point in the aforementioned previous 2 parter, and the finale is also important, so that&#;s 11 plot relevant episodesin a 24 episode season, meaning 54% of this season can be skipped over and you&#;d miss nothing.

The story is structured in a really formulaic way, the group travels to a location, one of the characters meets a stand user, they fight the stand user and are either beaten or trapped, then they fight them again and win, through either a stupidly complex strategy, or in Jotaro&#;s case, through punching, this formula is used in almost every episode, and it gets old really quick.

Character: 1/10

The main cast is completely bland and forgettable, Jotaro, the supposed main character of the part is about as interesting and well defined as a child&#;s first original character, he&#;s meant to be a delinquent type, but besides occasionally being rude or dismissive I never really got that vibe from him, he&#;s just a boring and emotionless mary sue who wins every fight by punching really hard, remember Joseph with his tactical expertise and complex strategies? Yeah that was sooo boring, let&#;s replace him with another shounen protagonist who wins every fight by just punching. Speaking of Joseph, the silly yet cunning and strategic Joseph has been reduced to a screaming old man, Old Joseph is mean to be the arc&#;s "comic relief" but he has one joke, the joke being that he screams phrases in English like 3 times an episode, yeah, I know right, comedy gold, I&#;m sure it was worth sacrificing your most interesting character yet Araki. Kakyoin is just, there, I&#;ve described characters as "bland" a lot when talking about Jojo, but I can&#;t even use that to describe Kakyoin since he has no personality, like I can&#;t tell you a single thing about him as a character. What I said about Kakyoin can also be applied to Avdol except he&#;s even more forgettable since he&#;s absent for a good chunk of the season.

The only mildly interesting character is Polnareff, Polnareff&#;s entire personality is that he&#;s impulsive and stupid and often gets himself into trouble, yeah it doesn&#;t sound like much but he at least has a personality that&#;s easy to describe, he also has an interesting motivation, he doesn&#;t want to kill Dio at all, he&#;s just after the man who killed his sister, and once he finds and kills him he loses the only interesting thing about him and becomes just as bland as the rest of the main cast.

The only really interesting character is minor antagonist Hol Horse, he portrays himself as this confident, smooth talking and charismatic lady&#;s man often acting like a cowboy from an old western, but in reality he&#;s a coward who&#;s way in over head and has deluded himself, not too well developed but really fun to watch, too bad he only gets 3 episodes of screentime in this season. Hol Horse is the only antagonist worth mentioning, all of the others are just obstacles for the protagonists to clear, most of their personalities are comparable to that of a Power Rangers monster, in fact towards the end of the season they stop showing up for the most part, they just use their stands to fight from a distance and you only see them after they&#;ve been defeated or killed. Oh yeah Dio&#;s here, he does nothing, he just waits around in his mansion, occasionally talking to this one witch who&#;s built up but killed almost as easily as the rest of the villains

Art: 8/10

The art and animation is about on part with season 1, it&#;s great, read my review for season 1 for more details.

Sound: 8/10

The music is a slight improvement over season 1&#;s already great music, there are a lot more memorable tunes, such as Jotaro&#;s theme, Kakyoin&#;s theme and the OP, Walk Like An Egyptian was a great choice from the ED.

Overall: 3/10

Part 3 is just awful, I see no point in watching it other than for the fight scenes, but even then you could just watch them on YouTube, so is it really worth sitting through 24 episodes of (mostly) no story and the blandest set of characters in anime history?

A new season of manliness, a new season of awesomeness, a new season of crazy onomatopoeias, impossible poses and clichéd phrases which are so awesome that will make you forget that they are really cliché. Here it is, a new season of JoJo´s Bizarre Adventures and it will be this Cat´s pleasure to review it.

Welcome to The Neko´s review of JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 3: Stardust Crusaders.

As we know, JoJo is divided into several parts, each with it´s own character, own plot but with similar style. Stardust Crusaders is the third part of the whole Jojo´s Bizarre Adventures franchise and works as a sequel to the first season of Jojo, which included parts 1 and 2, Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency.
The series starts with the revelation of DIO´s comeback to the series, who is after the remaining Joestars heads, and the journey of the new Jojo, Jotaro Kujo, and his companions in order to exterminate DIO once and for all.
This time the series took a more episodic nature and replaced the Hamon by new powers called Stands, a manifestation of psychic powers that takes the form of any given character´s Alter Ego. I can only imagine all the Jojo fans, when this was published in the manga, going "Awww my GAWD, that is soooooooo AWESOME", because even if now it´s not THAT original, when the manga was first published it was a kinda big deal. Now we have things like Persona that do things like that, but Jojo is different in the aspect that here Stands can take ANY form, ranging from an enormous ship to a little insect, each with its own abilities and weaknesses. So this episodic nature that the series took this time is shown in a ‘Stand User of the week’ format. Bad guy appears, Jojo and his friends have to deal with him, they have trouble at first, then they find a way to beat him and then they win in the most awesome way possiblemost of the times. While there are some really fun, filled with action and comedy episodes, there are also a lot of episodes that end up being either boring or completely irrelevant, such as The Sun episode. This happens because the author of the manga thought that it would be cool to have the Stands named after Tarot cards, the thing is that then he had to use them all leading to some really unnecessary episodes here and there. The episodic nature of the show can also be bothersome to some people since Part 1 and 2 had a more over arching story. Also, this season is only the first half of Stardust Crusaders with more to come in , so its ending really doesn´t conclude anything, nothing to worry about since its continuation is already announced.
But of course, this is still Jojo so we still have the things that make Jojo what it is, bizarre comedy, lots of action and cool phrases, so if you liked season 1 then you will most likely enjoy this season anyway.

The artwork in Season one wasn´t the best there is because of the short budget, but they still compensated with filters and colour changing to make it look cool enough despite the short budget. This time they have more money and it shows, the animation is more fluid, colours are more vivid and backgrounds are more detailed but they still keep all the things that made the first season´s animation so cool, all the change of colours, all the onomatopoeias, all the style is still here and it looks better than ever. The character designs are still Jojo too, lots of muscles and the cool hairstyles are still here. Jotaro´s design is the one I liked the most, it served its purposed which is to make him look like a badass.

In this part we have a new set of main characters starring the new JoJo, Jotaro Kujo and his friends, Mohammed Avdol, Jean Pierre Polnareff, Kakyoin Noriaki and the old version of Battle Tendency´s Jojo, the fabulous Joseph Joestar, Jotaro´s grandfather. Sadly, Jotaro didn´t live up to my expectations as a protagonist, he was to much of a badass protagonist than anything else, and is a kind of bland character. It seemed as if he was too forced into being a badass and that had it´s consequences. He lacked a lot of the charisma that the previous JoJo, Joseph, had. Still, he isn´t by any means a dislikeable character, but he is far from being one of my favourites.
Speaking of Joseph, he is back as an old version of himself this season, and boy did he make me worry at first. In the first couple of episode he was presented as a mature old man, almost completely different to the original Joseph Joestar, and I was "Butis this really the Joseph that we all know and love?" and it wasn´t until he starred in one episode that this series said "FUCK YES HE IS!" leading to one of the best episodes in the series where we get to hear his old phrases such as "OOOOOOOOH NOOOOOOO" and "Your next line will be", so yeah, Joseph is still awesome.
On the other hand we got Avdol and Kakyoin as supporting characters who had some moments to shine here and there but there is nothing that stands out that much, they are nice characters, but I wouldn´t say they are amazing. Polnareff on the other hand was the source of most of the usual bizarre comedy and with his joyful personality (most of the time) he ended up being one of the more likeable characters of Stardust Crusaders, at least until now.
Sadly even if DIO came back we still don´t get to see much of him and his fabulousness on screen, he does have a couple of scenes, but for now he doesn´t do much, since he is to cool to go out and kill all the Joestars by himself. We have secondary villains every episode, but the only ones that stand out are Hol Horse and Enyaba, with other less important villains such as The Empress, which are more funny that any other thing.

The soundtrack in this part is composed Yugo Kanno who, as redundant as it may sound, isn´t Taku "God" Iwasaki, the composer of Battle Tendency. As such the only track that really stood out was the Main Theme, Stardust Crusaders, with the rest of the soundtrack being kinda forgettable. In the other hand the voice acting is still great for the most part, every seiyuu did a grat job with it´s character, the only complain I have is with Jotaro, voiced by Daisuke Ono, since his voiced lacked some emotion, even in moments where Jotaro gets hit, it´s not really his fault but is still weird see Jotaro getting damaged and still not showing any sign of emotion, not even in his voice.
This season features only one Opening and one Ending, the opening being "Stand Proud" by Jin Hashimoto, a song that, as always, captures almost perfectly the essence of the Part, is a hit-or-miss song, but for me it was a really cool theme. The ending is of course an 80&#;s song, "Walk like an Egyptian" by the Bangles, is a nice song, but I still prefer the opening one.

As always Jojo´s Bizarre Adventures is still a really enjoyable instalment of the franchise, with some boring episodes here and there, sure, but enjoyable indeed. If you liked season one then there´s probably no reason why you shouldn´t watch this one, because even if it´s not as good as the first one in my honest opinion, at least not yet, it still has most of the things that made Season one so great.

Disappointed? Maybe a little since I was hearing so much things about this being the best part of Jojo´s Bizarre Adventures, and I still prefer Battle Tendency over this one, but this still provided me with lots of fun every week, more than what can be said about other series this season, and it is still Jojo, with its poses, its phrases, its over the top action and its bizarre comedy it will surely be enough to satisfy anyone who is looking for some MANLINESS this year. Now the second half is coming out on Winter of and I am not planning to miss it.

This has been The Neko and I wish you have a nice day/night.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders is more than just a classic adventure filled with bizarreness. Taking a journey into this show is an experience like no other when it comes to creativity. It’ll be like riding a roller coaster that will leave you with the impression of giddiness and “oh what the bloody hell”. But if you think that now, just wait until you find out what our heroes has to blaze through. It’s more than just hell as they become crusaders in this adventure to fulfill their destiny.

Continuing from where Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure () left off, Stardust Crusaders adapts Araki Hirohiko’s manga of the same name. The series takes place in the year of where we meet Jotaro Kujo, the grandson of Joseph Joestar. After discovering that he is possessed by a mysterious psychic force, Jotaro comes to realize that this manifestation is dubbed as “Stands”. The story gets more complex as Jotaro’s own mother, Holly develops a Stand of her own (due to family origins) that threatens her very own existence. Realizing that Dio Brando is responsible for such development, Jotaro starts the crusade to rid of his influence.

An important element to take notice from Stardust Crusaders is the introduction of Stands. The concept becomes a prominent device for progress as we witness how they function and adapt to present a credible story. Essentially, Araki experimented with the idea of these Stands as manifestations. The first Stand we see in the series, the Star Platinum, becomes a pivotal figure. What originally seemed like a mad idea becomes enveloped with creativity as witness the diversity of the Stands presented throughout the series. Characters who develop Stands utilize them for a variety of purposes. But what’s more important is that some of them even reflect a side of their persona. The show succeeds with this concept by connecting the idea of Stands with its characters and story to bring about a Jojo pantheon. It does seem like a gamble at first but the risk pays off. The show colorfully depicts Stands through their powers and inspirations that are thought provoking. No Stand looks alike and all of them possess a different power. It creates a thrilling atmosphere of eccentricity as it will make you curious. It will make you wonder and evoke a process to dissect what Araki does with his idea. And honestly, this idea is pure genius.

Like the previous series, Stardust Crusaders also follows the adventure of Jojo and his experiences. Joining him includes Joseph Joestar from its prequel as well as new characters. What’s important about these new characters is that they all have their own Stand. But even more so is the way they develop over as the story progresses. Nothing is really complex about their persona and is fairly straightforward. Perhaps it could be even colored bizarre such as some of the habits of our main characters such as Kakyoin or Polnareff. The show also offer a fair chance for each of the main characters to get their spotlight. This is justified by some of the reasons why these characters join Jotaro on his journey. For instance, Polnareff brings himself along in order to deliver vengeance against a man that took the life of his dear sister. The show intertwines sub-plots during the journey to provide a closure to various story driven plots.

Like its main character cast, the antagonists of the series offer a complex mixture. It’s like a theatrical showdown every time as our heroes deal with threats throughout their journey. They meet antagonists with diverse personalities, some with definite purpose while others treats our crusaders like a game. I think it’s safe to say that the hunters become the hunted. Furthermore, the man pulling the strings behind the scenes (Dio) is often portrayed as a mastermind. And as a man of complex nature, the show crafts its story carefully as Dio’s arsenal of militias goes to work at the most strangest of places. The antagonists’ Stands are also named after tarot cards with some incredible powers to really push the limits of our heroes. Their unique nature and complexity of their powers bring about Araki’s creativity. His ideas comes to crucial play here as each Stand find their niche in this adventure. It expands more than just inventiveness though as some of the Stands also provoke laughter and emotions. For what it’s worth, the Stands and antagonists are like a pair of column that holds the story in place. They not only test the wits of the crusaders where they must think outside the box to prevail but also stimulate emotions. As the story progresses, we find out more about the true nature of some of the main characters as well.

Starring protagonist Jotaro remains the most prominent cast member of the crusaders. Even to this date, he is perhaps the most well-known Jojo from the franchise. On the surface, he may be seen as a cold figure with an indifferent outlook on life while displaying his delinquent-like personality. Yet deep down, he truly does care about his friends and family. This is clearly shown throughout the journey with his words and action with characters such as Ann. Similarly, other main characters show their selfless nature. While some shows it differently than others, it’s evident that they truly care about their comrades. It becomes a highlight reel once you stay with the focus involving the main characters because of their personalities. Each of them may come from different backgrounds but their union together as crusaders is like a brotherhood. It has the feelings, bonding, and is amazing to realize that a journey can bring some strangers together in full circle.

With its adventurous mood, the show also explores a variety of territories featuring all sorts of terrain. The show covers a decent amount of ground in the first half as they journey towards Egypt to stop Dio. Throughout this journey, the wonders of the adventure can be felt with what characters discover involving different cultures. And despite its supernatural conventions, the show also has bits of realism and can even be relatable when it comes to culture. It can be easily indulged to fulfill elements of creativity through Araki’s concepts. Although the story itself sometimes may feel like a “Monster of the Week” formula with limited development, it’s also important realize the experiment that the author is bringing into his work. In retrospect though, the series isn’t very well written when it comes to explaining certain points. The series has many plot holes that perhaps will never be explained and is left to the imaginative minds of the viewers. While this may seem like a backstabber at first, the show instead cleverly delivers its dynamics and entertaining factors. With or without the bizarreness, Jojo SC’s plot isn’t one that strives to achieve logic. It aims to achieve its purpose to deliver bizarreness. This might come as a mixed bag for some people as the oddball humor could get out of control. The ‘monster of the week’ formulation might not also be suitable for some viewers through its context.

The artwork of Jojo SC is formidable when it comes to visual presentation. Character designs reflects the classic style of the franchise while retaining its purpose. Every Stand in the show looks different with emphasis on their design and the bizarreness. The fights are also well coordinated that explodes onto the screen with energy. To add to the flavor are humorous gimmicks and dialogues coming from the heart of our characters. And similar to the previous season, trademark phrases such as ‘ORA ORA ORA’ are timed fabulously to grab a viewer’s attention. As discussed before, the show’s settings have a variety of backgrounds and each of them convey it well when it comes to delivery. Ranging from mountainous terrain, to foggy ghost towns, or even aboard an aircraft, the show achieves its adventurous tone. David Production surely deserves some praise for their superior animation quality here.

Similarly, soundtrack plays a strong role throughout the show. The OP song "STAND PROUD" by Jin Hashimoto envelops itself with a fast paced coordination with decorative montages of the main characters with hints of foreshadowing. On the other hand, the ED song "Walk Like an Egyptian" delivers its theme of Egypt to the core. OST is also impressive especially during climatic scenarios. Even when the mood seems to be calm, the OST creates a feeling of thrilling experience to show that our heroes are always in danger during their journey. Characters voices are impressive to say the least on most parts whether it’s Jotaro’s stoic mannerisms, Kakyoin’s outgoing personality, or Joseph’s wisdom. Oh and of course, don’t forget that ORA ORA ORA on the door to the way out.

An epic journey is perhaps what Jojo Stardust Crusaders should be essentially known for. But it expands more than that with the characters, gimmicks, and overall clever writing. While it’s not one of the smartest adventure tale with the history books, Jojo SC is a blockbuster with its exceptional creativity. I’m not just referring to the Stands or characters but also the humor it strives to deliver. It doesn’t go diehard mode with its comedy but instead scales the performance of the characters to bring them at their best during the journey. Perhaps the story plot holes can be a bit frustrating to deal with at times. However, mincing it down is silly when a show with this amount of bizarreness. If for some reason that you decide to go full Sherlock Holmes and try to find these plot holes, then the experience of this show would not suit you well. You’ll be missing out the entertainment as Stardust Crusaders elevates bizarreness in a fashionable way like never before.
