Master the Pose!



   


So we're up to episode 4.  Not sure what the pacing is, but that felt about 4-5 chapters of cramming bullshit shonen manga science into my brain, and so--



This show is fantastic.

I'm only up to 3. And yes, that pacing was at a breakneck speed. I think it was just to quickly get to the point that Dio is a vampire.  I think the fansub I was watching was trolling me with the Wryyyyyyy in ep 3.

Tried watching it but the subs did not match with the video so I gave up
It's really annoying cause I'd like to get into it since it seems like a pretty hip series,
Plus I'd be more invested in the new fighting game too

Episode 5...exposition ahoy.  Seems like the top hat guy would have countered the frost, what with sun powers, but it's good they down-powered him at some point.

The MMM subs are the ones I finally settled on. Good rec from Jack. It's so hard to tell when they're trolling with a show THIS over the top. I had to laugh when Zeppeli tip toed across the water using the ripple.

This show gives me the same feeling that old kung fu movies do. Love it.

Yep.  That was...wow.

Also, Jonathon has hit Fist of the North Star levels at this point.  Shirts exploding and sending death threats in the past tense. 

Also also, your mentor has died?  Here, have 3 more!

Oh my god I didn't even notice that. Fuckin' Speedwagon. He's been so goddamn useless yet I can't help but like him.

Maybe it's because he gets some of the best lines.

Speedwagon is very likable. He's the everyman with no crazy magic powers so he's there for exposition sake. ALSO HE TALKS IN ALL CAPS, ALL THE TIME.  I like him too, but the hat thing was too funny not to mention.

Don't know if they'll ever get to them, but I think my favorite assist character is Muhammad, but that's just because him and Joseph are my mains in the Capcom game.  He actually does useful things, iirc.

The fight was kind of bleh*, but next week looks really interesting.  Fuck yeah, Joseph precursor!


*(the ice power isn't agreeing with me.  Come on guys, it's like his only offense and you people harness the sun.)

Well he is a vampire, I assume he's got superhuman strength and all that as well. (Not that Jojo isn't equally strong).

Also Dire got obliterated. Eeeesh.

I actually really enjoyed this episode. Like, more than the last few weeks.

So you guys think they're planning on fitting the first three arcs into 26 episodes? At the rate they're going it certainly seems that way, but I haven't read the manga so maybe part 2 is way longer than part 1. I dunno.

I'm not sure how many arcs there will be, but the pacing seems really fast. I am okay with that :)

Well that was part 1. I thought it was fun and apprently it's one of the worst parts so I'm looking forward to more.
Also
That last scene with JoJo cradling Dio's head was oddly beautiful.

I have a basic idea where this goes, but all that imagery toward the end makes me wonder what's going to happen/looking forward to surprises 

like what is with the aztec statue that looks like Jonathon, and who is that baby she saved going to be if she's pregnant with Joseph

Also zombie ship O_o  Dark.
