Here we go, a little bit of Sticky Fingers in action.
Have some more of the majestic beauty of the Duwang translation.
It's kinda funny that that one guy covers the other guy in zippers everywhere except the most obvious spot: his crotch.
I have started reading (THANKS ANGIE NOW I HAVE NO LIFE AGAIN), and I'm not even out of Part 1 before Araki kills off my favorite character so far. I should probably get used to this, right?
Also I am pretty sure that Speedwagon is secretly in love with Jojo.
Otherwise, I really like the art (which is unusual for me; I don't really like the beefcake look), and Araki managed to give a character a sweet mustache without making him look creepy as hell.
Yeah, over the years Araki has racked up a favorite character death count that puts A Song of Ice and Fire to shame. He tends to let them go out glamorously, though.
I've been swimming in Jojo for the past few days.
A beautiful experience
Okay, so you got me.
So in this panel JoJo is being very emo and having a cry in bed... but he has chose to pose like he is French oil painter's nude. Because we will be emo fabulously.
Basically a summary of the entirety of Part 1 so far
i know exactly where this is going but i am sad anyway
yes you will jojo
in your big ridiculously muscular gentlemanly arms
i may have become completely obsessed with this already
I'm in Battle Tendency right now and it's fucking hilaaarious.
Between the nudity and the nazis's and Jojo's ability to annoyingly predict what people are about to say, I just can't contain myself.
Oh gosh, Jojo... I love Jojo's Bizarre Adventure for all the reasons listed above. I love it because of how smart the characters are: they win fights not due to a higher power level or more training, but because they can think fast on their feet, have a good grasp of science and mathematics, and are capable of using their abilities in extremely creative ways. I love it because it is both surreal and consistent with itself, so things that happen are whacked out, but make sense at the same time. I love how the characters are written and how fun the whole series is. And of course I love how fabulous it is; how could I not?
Joseph is so many people's favorite Jojo for very good reasons.
Also, Google Translate has decided to start translating Pillar Men to Men's Pole on Pixiv, and it kills me every time.
zeppeli has luscious full lips
and a cocked hat
and he never drops that wine glass
and then he shoots killer wine from his lips
just... his distinguished nonchalance
HE GETS MORE FABULOUS
I AM NOT SURE HOW THAT IS MATHEMATICALLY POSSIBLE
Never doubt the ability of Jojo to get even more fabulous!
So I didn't know what Pixiv was, so I went there and the first thing I saw was this:
Is it wrong that this image terrifies me? It's well-done, but uncanny in a Dorian Gray kind of way. She's watching me.
Pixiv is Japan's DeviantArt. I go there to look at the Jojo, FKMT, and Yakuza tags.
This just makes me sad that the Yakuza thread in the PC/Video Games Subforum's so damn quiet.
Also, once I finally finish classes in a week, I'll be diving into the world of Jojo with the rest of the thread... for now, I'm just appreciating your synopses of the manga arcs.
I am pretty sure I have blogged every single piece of fanart of Daigo crossdressing from Yakuza: Dead Souls on tumblr thanks to Pixiv.
..Yeah... that just reminds me of how much of a dick Majima can be. Then again, Daigo kinda deserved it for what he did in Yakuza 4.
You know? Jojo's and Yakuza are sorta similar, in that both feature incredibly badass protags, physics-defying combat, and lots and lots of blood. I get the feeling any Jojo fan would probably love Yakuza, and vice-versa.
There's this vortex of Japanese content that I have discovered where if you like one piece of it, you are incredibly likely to like all pieces of it. It's basically Jojo - FKMT - Yakuza - Dorohedoro. I can safely recommend any of those to someone who likes one of them and have a really high success rate.
Pixiv blocks access to their images without a proper referrer. Please rehost this somewhere.
I was going to do a post about Araki's Rohan-themed sideworks (Rohan goes to Gucci and Rohan goes to the Louvre) but instead I decided to mention this.
Go read Dolce and his Master. This is NOT the most cracktastic thing that happens, and it's short.
And no one sets the cat on fire, don't worry.
On that recommendation, I just read it, and while I really had no earthly idea what was going on in the story at some points, I can say this with the utmost certainty:
Dolce is best cat.
I just wanted to throw this screenshot out there because it made laugh.
Looks like a big, obvious clipping bug, right? Who would release such a shitty screenshot?
Nope, just a really faithful adaptation.
For funsies, the same pose was in the old Jojo fighting game as well.
Oh Hol Horse.
"And he was the friendliest Nazi there ever was, and they lived happily ever after!"
So does that character have some kind of magic for passing through objects? Or the ability to grow weapons out of their hand? Or a wisecracking ghost for a companion who is also a gun?
My guess is the ability to go through objects, since that's something sortof explored in part 2. I really don't know though.
Hol Horse's Stand is his gun. Stand's are summoned from inside you, so that's Hol Horse pulling out his gun and preparing to fire.
I will also say that once any of you who have picked up the series make it through part 3, you should DEFINITELY watch the old OVA WITH the English dub. You will laugh so hard.
Dio's actually really appropriate. Hol Horse will amuse the hell out of you.
And it'll make you shout AVDOL-SAN in bewilderment.
(They kept honoriffics for Kakyoin it's hilarious)
I'm finally introduced to Loggins, and all I can think of is how Kenny Loggins ruined Christmas.
ETA: wtf, ROBO-NAZIS? What am I even reading?
God this is so good.
Double-edit: AND NOW THIS OTHER DUDE BASICALLY HAS CHAINSAWS ON HIS ARMS
YEP THIS IS BASICALLY AMAZING
Tequila Joseph is the prettiest Jojo girl.
So I decided to give this another try and actually made it all the way to part two this time around.
Then this happened:
Also, I had the same expression as in that last panel.
Here's the preview for the anime adaptation of Part 2. Sugita is pretty much the most perfect choice to play Joseph.
As much as I like Lisa Lisa,
This page pretty much sums up my reactions so far.
ETA: (and this one too)
Fucking Cars, man! I can't wait to see the goddamn squirrel hand animated.
I knew zippers were bad news O:
I'm not 100% sure what Zeppeli is doing but he looks fabulous.
Also, had to make sure this was posted at least once.
