    Jojo's bizzare adventure

    They have been doing a lot with this series as of late, has anyone else been keeping up with the new stuff like i have, and if so what do you think :3
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose. The boy doesn't always now. At some point, the boy then becomes an adult and learns what he was able to become. Joy and Sadness forever will accompany this. He is confronted with a choice. When this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy. The boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream, for those endless possbilities are stretched out before him". We must remember... all men were once boys

    From its actual beginning, almost 30 years. I've watched parts 1 & 2 and a little bit of 3. Haven't really looked at anything after that but I hear it's pretty good and that some of the newer JoJos are awesome. Haven't read any of the manga unfortunately.

    That, and the writer, Hirohiko Araki, doesn't age. At all.

    I've been watching the new series religiously on crunchyroll. I'm enjoying it. Anyone else been watching it?

    Yup. Araki's a vampire. His secret is out.

    My first exposure to Jojo's in any form was the nineties OVA by A.A.A.P. and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction. The OVA is not through and through true to Araki's style, but it does accomplish his vision (albeit in a less-fabulous way) and I'll defend it anywhere at anytime because as a cinematic work it's wonderful: its eighties standards of masculinity in character design is, in hindsight, delightfully overdone and the lovably corny English dub only heightens the experience. It was a time before the current climate in which we find ourselves (anime and otherwise), where the mainstream, hive-minded reaction to an on-screen adaptation (ah, yes, we're also amidst the 'adaptations or bust' times but I digress) isn't based on shot composition, or pacing, or character development, or dramatic reveals, or ANYTHING relevant to a work of cinema but ONLY on how zealous it is in following source material nonnative to the screen (comics, manga, book, etc.).

    To try and redeem myself (sorry folks, a crusty old film critic here), I have since looked into the Jojo's manga and I LOVE it: it's ostentatious and vibrant and in-your-face in ways that make it truly unique. But, I would argue (if necessary), something that works in a comic-type medium doesn't necessarily work for an on-screen one. Plus, in today's modern entertainment climate, anime seems to have been catering to the 'uber-fan' who already knows everything about every facet instead of trying to properly introduce average joe's new to the experience (internet's to blame there, I suppose). I think a friend of mine said it best: "we're not in an era of anime, anymore; we're in an era of animated manga."

    Getting back on-topic, I quite enjoy the recent television series as well; Parts I & II were, of course, awesome, and thus far Stardust Crusaders is keeping that tradition on track. Its only weak points (small, though they may be) are, as built up to this whole time, the result of stringently following the manga and having a mantra of 'above all else, remain canonical.' The over-exposition which interrupts action and causes delays in actual furthering of plot (things I've heard fans complain about, even though they have no idea as to the cause of these ailments while continuing to belittle the OVA) is simply a result of this. IN A COMIC/MANGA/LITERATURE, you can not only get away with heavy exposition but rely on it; in cinema, you don't need it (screenwriting 101: show, don't tell), it's usually just dead weight. The OVA had intense, dramatic buildup to Dio's Stand; in TV series, it's just blurted out by one of the many 'villains of the week.' In the OVA, you DREAD the entire journey to Dio's mansion, and the fear is exasperated when you reluctantly arrive; in the TV series, I've already found myself groaning with impatience to more or less 'get it over with' (hopefully, as awesome as the TV series has been thus far, the final fight with Dio will put me in my place). AND FINALLY (LOL): I don't care about purported accuracy of translations or any other argument opposing me here...Jotaro Kujo ain't ****ing Charlie Brown; I ain't got time for no "Good Grief." (Crunchyroll!) You can say I'm drinking the nostalgia kool-aid too much, I don't care. I need an I-could-care-less, typical apathetic teenage punk "What a pain" as a part of my balanced breakfast (and for actually being true to character, in all seriousness, but that's enough for one diatribe, you'll all start thinking I'm a grump or something).

    (So much for redeeming myself, right?)

    P.S. Seriously though, the TV series, the OVA, the manga (heck, just played PS3 fighting game)...it's all AWESOME and if you're new to Jojo's don't let me scare you off! The currently airing TV series (Part III: Stardust Crusaders) isn't finished as of this post, but it will be soon, so get on it!
    No one's gonna' give you a map. You've gotta' walk your own path.

    it does feel a little slow so i can certainly understand where you come from but it balances the comedy/action/little drama, very well in my opinion which is something that the ova could never delve too far into
