Yep, everything will be fine. What could possibly go wrong on that boat?

Well that was part 1. I thought it was fun and apparently it's one of the worst parts so I'm looking forward to more.


That was the worst bit? What! I thought it was fun as well.  We (Sharp and I) were wondering if Elena would be stupid enough to name that other baby Dio. I would have liked to see a bit more of the other ripple masters. There was a lot of standing around by them.

I know a little meta information about future villian(s)  because I read a bit of Jojo in the Jotaro era. I also know who lives.

Was quite surprised to see Jonathan go out like that. He had a terrible life.


Also! I AM GOING TO MISS SPEEDWAGON'S SCREAMING. ALL CAPS FOR LIFE, SPEEDWAGON!

edit: I am probably going to switch to the Nutbladder subs. MMM takes too damn long and Nutbladder left the awesome Jojo commercials in.

We laughed so hard at Killer Queen. I don't think that can be topped.

Also zombie ship O_o  Dark.

That entire episode was pretty damn dark. Except for the beginning bit with Speedwagon. That was great.

So yeah, Part 1 had a pretty fantastic finale. Can't wait for next week.

Watched it unsubbed so wasn't 100% sure what all was said, but Joseph did not disappoint that Tommy Gun at the end lol

Erina did not age gracefully.

Also disappointed in Roundabout being reused, I was wanting to hear something more like what the next episode trailers have changed into.  I know we're getting a new OP, however.

I love how she's become such a hardass.

Part 2 is looking even more promising than part one. Joseph was brilliant and I love that Erina's all old and badass now.

And now, a moment of silence for a very special oil baron.

I like that he went from petty alley shanker to oil baron.  I will miss you too Speedwagon.

Also, did the translator's rename the Ripple into something else?  What is this?  Don't be changing terms when I get used to them, now.

The MMM subs still call it the ripple. They were good, but they're even better now. (yes, I switch back and forth between MMM and Nutbladder)

I too, will pour one out for Speedwagon. I will also miss that loud old bastard. <3 Smokey has a lot to live up to as the human sidekick. I really like the new Jojo tho. He's not classy like his grandad, but he means well and doesn't fuck around. Hell yes, Tommy Gun!

I like keeping the end theme. I get really into the show, then I hear the guitar and I'm like "Noooo! Not ready for the ep to end!"

New Jojo seems like he's what dio would be if dio gave a damn about anyone other than himself.

Just started watching JoJo OVA Ep 1, but I still think I should hold off until the anime wraps up.  I will say though I love how beautifully they animated Jonathan's death scene as the opening credits. 

I like when OVAs do their own interpretation of manga events. (like how the Kenshin OVAs highlighted the Kyoto arc in their own style.  They still owe me a proper Jinchuu arc tho.)

Also, does anybody else get a Castlevania vibe from this series as a whole?

For sure.

Joestar is to Belmont what Dio is to Dracula.

Oh man. This show just got a lot more fabulous.

But seriously, this was a great episode. Guess I was too soon to count-out Speedwagon!

Man these new bad guys are a rough lot. O_o  A lot of this was painful to watch.

Can't wait for Joseph to troll some Nazis next week.  He's been fantastic btw.  I like how he's pretty much a continuation of Jonathon's progression in training.

I like how he predicts what people are going to say, and they say the same thing anyway no matter how intelligent they are. XD

I think I'm also really going to like Lisa Lisa she looks awesome in that OP.

But the rest of it was incredibly frightening.  Reminded me of a lot of Majin Buu though, so I guess Toriyama didn't think of such a villain first, or it was a callback to it.
