you okay, story-time anon?
I'm back, sorry!
>>214274111Jotaro’s autism knows no bounds
>>214274962Did a train run over your toe so you had to get a bandaid for it?
>>214275029something like that
>>214275055The bottom right dialogue from Jolyne is purely Jotaroesque.

>>214275344Original title: A New Awakening
>>214275323Pucci conveniently forgets to mention that he's actually after Jotaro's memories and has no use for his stand.
>>214275430The anime should introduce her motivation here so it feels less forced later on.
>>214274111Jotaro might not be the best JoJo, but he's the most based character of all JoJo
>>214275626Original title: The Janitor's Melancholy
>>2142756262 best girls right here
Stone Ocean is my favorite part, but I don't think it's the "best" part.Am i able to say that without sounding contradictory? I think Part 7 is objectively the best, but Stone Ocean is and probably always will be my favorite.

>>214276087Original title: Fellow Travelers to Hell
>>214276070Does Araki not know that hanging suicides aim for breaking the neck rather than strangulation, or is McQueen just such a failure that he can't even commit suicide properly?
>>214276052>>214276070kek>>214276237I guess losing your memory also loses your knowledge of hanging yourself?
>>214276232>>214276259>>214276052>>214276070this is seriously the funniest fight in all of jojo, it's so underrated.

>>214276407Araki was really into American children's literature during this period.
>>214274143In a way it's good that Jotaro learned he isn't father material and stopped only a one kid.
>>214276628Most people who commit suicide try to make it as painless as possible.
>>214274111Serious talk here, I was never particularly fond of Jotaro, but SO made me almost hate him.

>>214277343>>214277343Thanks for the dump OP.
>>214277324I feel very bad for Etroe.
>>214277426Objectively incorrect. Her design is too ugly even by JoJo standards.
>>214276848>>214276865i think araki watched jurassic park before drawing this chapter.
>>214274310>deltaCTGWhat does it mean
>>214274391It probably is, but Jotaro uses it in a really underwhelming way, so it doesn't look that strong. Still weird when you've got other time/nightmare/whatever stands.
>>214277687>Its light skin is marked by horizontal stripes of roughly an inch's height, with "GΔCT" (after the four nucleobases of DNA) repeatedly written on every other stripe.>The delta (Δ) sign that replaces Adenine in the pattern on Whitesnake's body may hint at a "missing gene", or Whitesnake's incompleteness, a foreshadowing to C-Moon and Made in Heaven.
>>214275146That upper left Jolyne is coloured/inked so nicely.
>>214277939The dogpark coloring is the only coloration that isn't complete shit.
>>214275261Aww, Emporio calls her onee-chan. Also, he's Araki's favourite SO character.
>>214278029Did he ever confirm that?
>>214275304Now that I think about it, it feels like GW foreshadowed both Emporio (kid born in prison) and Jolyne (major stand user's stand user daughter).
>>214278212>pucci is a priest like diavolo's dad wanted him to be
>>214275973I love it when stands "talk".
>>214276785leave the autistic man alone
>>214274442>Jolyne... I always...cared about you... That's it man. Right in the daddy issues!
>>214276087So who else finds it really funny that Thunder [Ale(xander)] McQueen (same pronounciation in JP) came out before Lightning McQueen?
I wonder if Jotaro's autism is something Araki planned from the start
>>214279016There's a thin line between hypermasculinity and autism, I don't think Araki is aware of that line
>>214276407Emporio's dialogue somehow reminds me of those cryptic NPCs you sometimes stumble upon in games.
>>214274062Reminds me of this
>>214276653Wasn't this a real case or at least a story printed in a real article? I remember reading it before and no, it wasn't in Jojo.
>>214274111What a fucking autist
>>214274111>doesn't grab daughter's hand to keep her from falling>takes pendant out of her had mid fall>tries to give it back to her in the most awkward way possiblejotaro's autism is not a meme holy shit
>>214276798Those ugly colours on Kiss make me want to die.
>>214274111>Jolynes smile when she thinks her dad was actually worried about her for a second
>>214276798Cool pose, best girl, ugly stand, underutilized ability. Thanks Araki sama.
>>214274143>Jotaro doesn't even understand why Jolyne is mad.Man his 'tism is off the charts.
>>214277055So can we chalk up the gloop dream to a different stand disc?
>>214274210>>214274226So how and WHY is their vision of Mahattan transfer exactly what the stand looks like? Is it because Pucci inserted that memory into them? How does his halucination ability work? How does his cumbath ability work? This part is so fucking confusing.
>>214274288Awww shit! I finally got Jotaro on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Would you rather fuck Jolyne or Jotaro?
>>214274310>It's able to surpass the speed of light AND stop time itself.I'm not sure if it's saying it is both able to surpsass the speed of light and stop time or if, by surpassing the speed of light it is effectively stopping time.
>>214280191I want to fuck Stone Free
>>214275996His pants look itchy
>>214280191I would rather watch Jolyne fuck other men.
>>214280243Silver Chariot surpasses the speed of light but it doesn't stop time, it's safe to say those are separate abilities.
>>214273990What lines does dogpark fixes?
>>214274962You know you're fucked when your opponent doesn't even acknowledge you while they deflect all your attacks.
>>214278151Yeah, in the long Jojomenon interview. He said he especially likes him because of the whole weirdness of a little kid sneaking around a jail.
Ok, so I'm pretty damn sure McQueen's design is also based on Steve McQueen in The Great Escape which inspired Araki to make a prison based story. He loves the movie by the way.
>>214275055I love Jotaro's "That's my girl" face at the end there.
>>214280243>>214280502Stopping time is physically impossible.
>>214275996Araki really likes putting jockstraps on characters, huh?
>>214275355Well to be fair one of them was just gonna kill her flat out. He needed his partner to to stop him.
>>214275261So she can send messages telepathicly?
>>214275284I love that it's Jolyne's choice to stay in prison. She's not trapped there. She's there because the guy she needs to kill is there.
>>214276388It's a fun fight
>>214281107Tin can telephone
>>214276431>>214276455THERE SHE IS
>>214280817Stands aren't physical so there you go
>>214275373Man. Ermes has some nice gams.
>>214281154I don't. It completely ruins the tension and wastes the prison escape concept. There's no reason for the prison to be there at all.
>>214281418>prison escape concept.that was never a thing
>>214281418But the closed setting of the prison was actually the point. Araki wanted to do the same thing he did in DiU.
>>214275430So wait. Did Guess only have her stand for a brief period before meeting Jolyne? Like if she got it from Jolyne's pendant when Hermes gave it to her it was probably only a day or so.
>>214275454Why does Hermes Costello off the top of her head know Mickey Mouse's birthday?
>>214275398Shouldn't keep moneey in you vagina Ermes
>am I cute uguu
>>214281558They leave the prison for the last third or so of the story
>>214275996>>214280890Maybe the codpiece is so that the female prisonors won't hoof him in the nuts.
>>214276431>>214276455>cutest girl in part 6>gets turned into the ugliest man in JoJo
>>214276675Would you want Hermes's panties?
>>214276052Why did they put me in this series?
>>214282054No she's ugly and probably smells bad
>>214276431>>214276455I WILL NEVER FORGIVE THE JAPANESE
>>214277324I feel like this should get the prion sued>>214277343Thanks for the dump OP!
>>214276087>>214276112Real talk, I saw way too much of myself in this description and it made me want to be less of a selfish sadsack burdening other people with my issues. So thanks for that, Araki.
>>214282072Take that back.
>>214276209Ermes is cute. CUTE.
>>214282054Imagine the smell
>>214279115Wow I thought of that EXACT same thing when I saw that. Just the way he says it cracks me up.
Enjoyed Stone Ocean far more than Steel Ball Run. Steel Ball Run took a while to get into but Stone Ocean was 100% fun right from the very start.
>>214276350>>214276373Why is Emporio being so cryptic and creepy? He's just a normal kid after this.
>>214276431>>214276455>>214282138Real talk, if Annasui had stayed a girl do you think she woud've been lesbian for Jolyne?
>>214276455Emporio going from eating a chocolate bar to drinking OJ to firing a pistol in a library should definitely be one of those out of context pages people post to fuck with people.
>>214276554This guy's stand is just Destiny bond.
>>214282551Probably would have gotten Weather/Jolyne. Which would have been better since Weather had some development and early team ups with Jolyne. While Anasui basically showed up and said he was in love with her while Jolyne pretty ignores him until going 'yeah sure" in the final fight.
>>214282551>Include a stand that can change body structure>Don't use it in its full potentialThere would've been many possibilities
Is it supposed to be Hermes or Ermes?
>>214276653This reminds me about mr. Incredible saving that suicide jumper and getting sued because he was in traction.
>>214277055A tractor tire really was a dumb place to store those.
>>214282054Yes, not because I really care about panties but because I like Hermes and the idea she's giving me panties to cheer me up would make me pretty happy.
>>214282852It's Hermès, the brand but localized to Ermes.
>>214274111>blushing what a slut
>>214277078I love how distinctive Araki's colouring is.
>>214279576You remember correctly, but it was not a real occurence, merely an entertaining story passing for the real deal. Google Ronald Opus.
>>214276703I can't lie, they're both making some good points.
>>214283396Yeah, that's what it was, thanks! I love it when Araki brings up things like these, I wonder how many of them simply flew over the Japanese readers' heads. Just realised I wrote article instead of newspaper too.
>>214276822I think Jolynes best look is when she wears that long Prison jacket over her usual outfit. I dunno something about it makes her look really cool.
>>214280191I would just watch Jotaro fucking Jolyne.
>>214283056Seriously, invest in a safe or something
>>214276920Charlotte's a GOOD GIRL! She doesn't eat people. She stays on the right side of the law.
>>214276953Stop being so mean to Guess.
>>214283855Wouldn't you be mad at someone who forced you to wear fursuit?
>>214277009God putting the disks in really does look really uncomfortable. Not painful just really weird.
>>214283855She did shove Jolyne in to a rats corpse, tried multiple times to get her killed or thrown in solitary, then tried to kill her personally when those all failed. Joylne has every reason to hate her.
>>214277271They weren't, they're on his memory disk. I think somehow after he was beaten they took his stand disk out and then put his memory disk back in. With his memory disk back he remembered stuff. But I think they just took it back out because fuck that guy who cares if he's in a coma.
>>214274111Autistic Clint Eastwood
>>214275355But anon, Jolyene isn't black
>>214276431>>214276455Didnt Araki have to change the gender because WSJ editors wouldnt allow lesbian lovers?
>>214275323White Snake is kinda sexy
>>214284644No. Why is this still a thing?
>>214275323Whitesnake has very powerful gay nigga energy. Fitting because Pucci's entire motivation is for getting his boipucci rocked.
>>214284752There is no official explanation for something that's legitimately strange, so the plausible-sounding rumor spread.
>>214282323That's what Hermes actually sounds like in my head, game voice be damned.
>>214285401Araki gave an official explanation at Lucca.
>>214285401Araki is a hack, it doesn't get more plausible than that
>>214285533>In 2019 at Lucca Comics and Games, Araki explained Anasui's appearance change as a result of his desire to "portray a character with an androgynous image that went beyond the standard definition of genders."Doesn't even make sense as an explanation.
he just changed his mind about anasui. that's all there is to it. whether or not that's hackery is up to you.
>>214285401At one point Araki thought that he needed more gay strippers for sales. Sales over creativity.
>>214285673Educate yourself at /lgbt/, sweaty.
>>214283145I thought she was named after the God didn't realize she was named after the fashion brand
>>214282551Maybe not, but that’s what fanfics are for!

>>214286212I'll take this over characters being named after food
>>214286212You forgot Alexander McQueen who shows up this very volume.
>>214283056>>214283715The hiding place doesn't gotta be good when you've got a good security guard for it.
>>214275454>>214275485One of the things I like about Stone Ocean is getting to see Jolyne and Hermes figure out their stands for the first time. It's the same for Johnny later, but before SO most MCs had already had their stands for a while before the beginning of their parts iirc. It's a bit more relatable this way
>>214277324Etroe was bullied constantly and came here for some peace and quiet and now she's dead.
>>214276622Maybe this stand is a metaphor for the pain people cause trying to kill themselves
>>214286721It’s not exactly subtle about that.
>>214285808It's pretty hacky, that's the kind of decision you should make during the character design process, not after you already wrote the chapter and had it printed and published and sold to millions of people
>>214279130You could make a strong argument for most shounen jump protagonists being on the spectrum.
>>214286856T*gashi did the same thing with Pitou and I don't see you calling him a hack
>>214280191Jolyne. And that's not even just cuz she's a girl. I'd rather fuck Jolyne than a girl Jotaro. She's raunchier, naughtier and the things she can do with her stand, fucking hell.
>>214281590That was literally just a volume ago. Jolyne doesn't even have the same motivation anymore. If her only driving force was to leave she would've just left when Jotaro came to pick her up. This story was never a prison break story,
>>214286660I enjoy that element to. It's what I really liked about Koiichi's development in part 4 figuring out Echoes. Though with Koiichi it felt a little annoying cuz it took him a while to understand how stands worked. Like there's 2 times he thinks his stand died and then says "oh wait, stands can't die until I die"
>>214287238>That was literally just a volume ago. Jolyne doesn't even have the same motivation anymore.Yes thank you for agreeing with my point
>>214286856To be fair with the week to week manga schedule it kinda kills a lot of the time to develop out ideas before putting them on paper. I honestly have to wonder how much time mangaka give themselves to plan stuff out.
>>214287659Sorry that the plot you thought you were gonna have changed a volume in. Guess what. Part 3 didn't take place in Japan with Jotaro fighting stand users in high school. Part 2 didn't take place in America with Joseph fighting vampires in America. Just because it betrayed your expectations and moved in a direction you weren't prepared for doesn't make it bad. It's just not what you, as an audience member, might've expected.
>>214277145Jolyne is such a bro lads
>>214287754>character says she has a goal >said goal is what the entire part is named for>that goal is dropped one volume later>Uhhh it was just your imagination bro that was never meant to be her goal, she was just lying dude
>>214286721More like the people who constantly threaten to kill themselves for sympathy or drag others along in their doomerism
>>214275398ENTER BEST GIRL
>>214288166subversion of expectations or something anon
>>214288166Isn't just her stand named after her goal
>>214274111Holy shit Jotaro you humongous autist
>>214288166I mean she's still gonna escape prison eventually so it's not like she doesn't do that. But right now she's staying to beat the shit out of the guy who mentally crippled her dad. It's pretty clear even this early on that if her stand can pass through bars that easily and create long invisible strings that can grab stuff that it's not that hard to actually "break out".Not to mention the fact that the chapter she says "I'm gonna use my stand to break out" comes literally RIGHT before the storyline when jotaro's kidnapping gives her a new goal. Just because she's WILLINGLY in that stone ocean doesn't mean that she's not still in a stone ocean. The stone ocean is the prison. She's in the prison.
>>214275485>>214275512>Hermes has the ability to duplicate her own body parts, but she will escentially self harm every time she uses itfuck
>>214277343Thanks OP it was nice and threads are getting really good !
>>214288166Her goal was to get out, before her father had his consciousness stolen and kept somewhere on the prison grounds.
>>214288453The stand and part are both named from the same line of dialogue
>>214288166>character has motivation built around a specific set of circumstances>said circumstances change, causing character to change their original plan when faced with a new conundrum>wtf character inconsistency??? shit writing
>>214288562>>214288726This all validates my point. She did plan to escape, so there was a prison escape concept introduced into the story that was eventually wasted. You're literally agreeing with me and repeating back to me my own opinion.
>>214288888She escapes later, but chose to stay because some mysterious Stand literally stole her dad's brain. Once they get that and his Stand back she and her friends fucking leave.
>>214288888Quints of utter stupidity
Bros, who tf is this
>>214288888What a fucking waste.
>>214288982abbacchio, you can tell because he looks like an angry woman
>>214288888>wtf what's this corpse part bullshit??? I thought it was about a race across the states????
>>214288982Oh no, not again.
>>214288982No changing eyebrow color this time, anon
>>214275964Best way to put it: It's Araki at his most batshit crazy since Battle Tendency. Is it rough? Yes. Will you miss it when it's over? Damn skippy.
>>214288954Doesn't matter. If you admit that Jolyne wanted to escape at any point in the story, then I'm right. >>214289146The race is never dropped from SBR even up to the very last chapter, try again retard.
>>214289264And jolyne wanting to escape is never dropped at any point up to the chapter when she does, I'm glad we're in agreement.
>>214288982Akagi from Slam Dunk
>>214283651Capes are cool
I really want to rereread Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency, preferably here. Was there a storytime last year or am I imagining things?
>>214289464Too bad the manga is not in agreement with you >>214275284This page BTFOs you and proves me right.
>>214289582Remember at the end of Stone Ocean, when Jolyne saved Jotaro and honorably decided to do her time in jail rather than breaking out?
>>214289582This isn't a "I'm never leaving". This is a "not yet"
>>214289809A "not yet" still proves me right. >>214289708Irrelevant
>Stone Ocean dropped the jailbreak plot!But they did break out of jail. >IRRELEVANT!!!!
>>214289426You win. Now this is the last one
>>214290217According to the people arguing with me, Stone Ocean never had a jailbreak plot. If you say it does, then you are agreeing with me. By arguing with me, you are arguing against your own beliefs.
>>214290384You said it wastes the prison escape concept, but it doesn't.
>>214290820>jolyne is alone and unfairly imprisoned>i want to escape!>immediately after she says this her dad shows up and gets btfo>guy who beat up jotaro took his stand and memory disc and goes back in to the prison>okay, i'll go get my dad's discs back and then escape like i planned to.and then she does exactly that.
>>214291001This would be a good argument against me if my claim was that Jolyne never escaped, but I didn't say that, so your post ends up being worthless.
>>214291207>these threads are filled with autists like theseI miss the cowboys
>>214291207Hey, anon, is this your first time reading SO?
>>214291329I was in every SBR thread>>214291355Nope, and I'm still right about everything I said to.
>>214291418What is it about SO that causes you to sperg so hard dear anon?
>>214291418You're just being a pedantic retard. Jolyne's motivation to escape never changes, only the circumstances surrounding them do. She doesn't stay because she found out that she actually really likes the prison, she stays because her fucking father's mind and abilities are in the prison and it's the only way to save him. The moment she gets them back she does the prison break with her new allies, since all of them by that point have accomplished everything they've wanted to do and have no reason to stay.The prisonbreak isn't wasted, it's postponed until the characters' circumstances change to allow the escape to be their main priority.
>>214291821You don't understand what you're talking about. Just because a character leaves a prison in a story doesn't mean that the concept of a story about breaking out of prison was well executed. Your entire argument seems to be "Jolyne broke out, so it wasn't wasted" even though this discussion was never about whether she physically left the prison or not. It's about how the story handles the plot point.You just admitted that Jolyne's prison break was postponed because it wasn't Jolyne's priority. The story changed to be about something else unrelated to prison breaks, therefore wasting the potential for a story about Jolyne struggling to break out of prison. Hunting for Jotaro's stand disc could have happened without the prison setting. It's wasted.
>>214274274>>214274288>>214274310>>214274329Jotarobrehs..we got too cocky... we're supposed to be invincible .....
>>214292474Jolyne was holding him back, he could solo the whole prison without her
>>214292474His comatose body is getting molested by the spw foundation as we speak

>>214286212>>214286325On that note, I’m curious - is the name really supposed to be read as “Thunder” McQueen instead of “Xander” McQueen? Is there a way that whoever does fan translations would know which it’s supposed to be, or is it possible the official name has been “Xander McQueen” and we’ll only find out when part 6’s anime airs?This question also applies to the differences between Guess/Gwess and Ungalo/Ungaro I guess.

>>214279576the movie Magnolia had a scene like that at the very beginning
>>214298214It's サンダー which is "sandaa", could be Thunder or Xander. It's honestly probably Xander but I don't know if it's ever written officially in English anywhere.
What killed the hype?
>>214296379>He looks like a corpseOnly fitting.
>>214304321S-shut up, he'll come back.
Does this part ever break away from the villain of the week shit like SBR or is it just gonna be like this forever?
