Why does Part 6 have so much terrifying bodyhorror
>>214488057One of my favorite SO covers
I hate against the OP or anything but why have SOtards got so worse lately? Is it because the animeonlies finally read the manga and thought it was the greatest work of fiction? They keep saying that part 6 is best part (which it’s not)
>>214488142Original title: Not Human?
>>214488283>Non Stand User finally reacting to a stand fight
>>214488426Original title: Ermes' Resolve
>>214488426This shit is why I love Stone Free. Simple concept, amazing utility and unlike Giorno, Jolyne makes full use of her stand's crazy abilities
>>214488341What happened to the druggie guy? Did Max eat him too?
>>214488057Why does it feel that there are so many forgettable moments in Part 6? I barely even remember Jumping Jack Flash
>>214488647It's probably my favorite stand in the whole series and I can't wait to see Jolyne utilize her stand in animation
>>214488730What the FUCK is it with part 6 and Body Horror
>>214488670>Revenge is for settling your score with your own destinyI loved SO for all the memorable quotes like this.
>>214488166Lotta people covered in viscous slime in this part of jojo.
>>214488730>Johnny vs Civil War
>>214488730Original title: Conclusion
>>214488195Those are some nice legs, Araki.
>>214488223>>214488258So Sports Maxx is one of several stand users who's ability transcends death.
>>214488647It's a lot like Sticky Fingers, which is tied with Stone Free as my favorite Stand. Simple yet versatile abilities are great, especially when they're weaponizing something harmless like string or zippers.
>>214488283This is actually pretty damn funny. Can't wait to see this animated.
>>214488341Never say Sports Maxx doesn't love women for their brains.
>>214488670Based Hermès, third best Jobro
>>214489009Original title: The Memories of the "Bone"
>>214488647I think its simplicity is its greatest aspect because it's the one Jojo stand ability up to this point that's not inherently super powerful. It's endless utility but you hear "oh she makes string" and you immediately think "that sounds weak".
>>214488982EXIT until billion volumes later
>>214488730How will DP deal with censoring this stuff?
>>214489149Funny enough Hermes is only gone for 4 days but SO is similar to VA in that story takes place in a matter of days.
>>214489038Who's the first and second?
>>214489009I mean fair enough, surprised this didn't happen earlier.
>>214489346Original title: Murderer, Rise!
>>214489283Gyro first and Bucciarati second
>>214488755We have to even made it to trees yet
>>214489222>>214489251This is definitely enough of a glimpse of Pucci to give away his identity.
>>214489450Foo Fighters doesn't really have the place to be shocked here, considering what she did to all those prisoners.
>>214489688Original title: Fight Club
>>214489669I fucking love Diver Down even if the ability is bullshit that changes randomly
>>214488644Pretty good “revenge begets revenge” story. Now Hermès has dragged Jolene into this because of her desire for it.
>>214489418EXIT AnastasíaENTER Anasui
This part is so bloody
>>214489774This stand is such a great concept, it really makes me feel like Pucci's competent considering how many users he ends up sending
>>214489314Who is this fag? Where did that cute tomboy girl go?
>>214489820Jolyne dragged herself into it
>>214489837>The bonesAHHHHWHAT THE FUCK IS WITH PART 6 AND BODY HORROR
>>214488728There’s forgettable parts in every part. I don’t remember half the part 3 fights, and the only reason I remember any of part 5s fight is the anime kept it fresh in my mind.
>>214489860Strong is beautiful
>>214490014Original title: The Weakest Stand in History
Enter: the dragon
>>214488823Getting strong Dio vibes from this.
>>214490175Oh God, the most annoying Stand fight ever.
the best fight is about to start
>>214490319Original title: Failure
>>214488956God this is a satisfying beating
>>214490168This redhead feels like she could be an actual character. What a qt.
>>214489418Then why tf are you keeping him there Emporio?? It's like some ''add character to group'' menu room in a game and not a hideout where you're discussing sensitive information out loud.
PART 7 IS THE BEST PART SUCK MY BALLS SUCK MY BALLS SUCK MY BALLS
>>214490479Bad writing. There's no reason for characters like Anasui or Hermes to even exist, except to copy previous parts
>>214489072>>214489096>>214489124God I love how strong willed Jolyne is. Even in this situation she doesn’t falter and just eats the fucking bread.
>>214490479He just won't leave
>>214490602JoJo's Bizzare Adventure Part 6: Gore Ocean
>>214489942I AM THE FUCKING STRONG
>>214490655Original title: It's Coming!
>>214489980>Part 1 Dio"eh yeah i'll just send like 2 guys at a time">Kars"Yeah one pillarman at a time">Part 3 Dio"All my stand users will attack 1 at a time aside from Hol Horse who gets 2 at a time">Part 4>Part 5My highly trained Mafia people will only ever attack one or two at a time>Part 6lmao fuck them kids, I'm gonna send in 4 stand users and the guards and if it goes south I'll come myselfWhy is Pucci the only competent enemy?
>>214489314>>214489418Dude look like a lady
>>214490747>in close proximity to Jolyne many times>doesn't kill her himselfPucci is the least competent
>>214490747Because you're a fucking retard
>>214489450>He’s a murderer I mean at this point I think Jolyne is the only one WITHOUT blood on her hands.
That's that, see you tomorrow!
>>214489485Would he do the same to Jolyne?
>>214490560At least Ermes was with Jolyne from the beginning, even if she's clumsily written in later and benched from now on. Anasui literally has zero reason to be in that room, I don't even need some elaborate plot but tell me what was he there for? Is Emporio collecting random stand users around prison?
>>214489560I love how cautiously protective FF is of Jolyne.
>>214491047Part 3 had a group of stand users and it was successful so Araki is forced to repeat it in every part until he broke free into a different magazine
Jolyne vs Planet Waves is definitely in my top 3 Jojo fights, just love this brutal fistfight>>214491020Thanks Mister
>>214491143Well it worked until this part
>>214489743WOAH don’t talk about fight club
>>214490889So Stone Free is so weak it can't break prison bars but it can punch someone hard enough to bend them?
>>214491293I wish we got this redhead instead of FF
>>214489808Here we fucking go
>>214491271Jolyne didn't know how to properly use Stone Free at that time to be fair
>>214488341>I'm a zombie so I should eat brainsWhy is Araki stereotyping minorities?
>>214491554It's not a stereotype if it's true, all zombies I have met tried to eat my brains
>>214489314He still looks like a girl
>>214490106It just fucking pisses you off
>>214488529I was actually planning to play this, but forgot. Thanks.
>>214490168What’s a load of fun character designs that don’t really get used.
>>214490232>just wall runs around herFucking Kekk
>>214489750The character also randomly changes genders.
We are literally on the cusp of entering the worst segment of chapters in all of Jojo
>>214490263>>214490286Not enough people talk about how good the fight choreography is for survivor
>>214491935Probably because it isn't good.
We are literally on the cusp of entering the biggest pleb filter in all of Jojo.
>>214491807Happens a lot in SO.
>>214488605Night of the Living Dead! Romero would be proud.
>>214490351Man, I miss Diver Down's original abilities.
>>214492001It's good to know that some people have taste.
>>214488839At least with Johnny it was hot.
>>214492168And well drawnAnd well writtenAnd not in the shittiest part
>>214489808I can't believe Giorno became a security guard
>>214490491>>214490521>>214490559This isn’t just your ordinary “get him close and ora ora. This is one of the few times it feels like you’re watching an honest to god brawl.
>>214489072>>214489096>>214489124>>214489156Okay, Jolyne is pretty based.
>>214488868Hermes is so cool
>>214492323>>214492380Are these threads populated by bots?
>>214490747Part 5 was mostly just a Battle of egos
>>214490747>lmao fuck them kids, I'm gonna send in 4 stand users and the guards and if it goes south I'll come myself>still loses
>>214489314ENTER WORST BOY IN ALL OF JOJO
The best and the goriest fight in part 6, cant wait for it
>>214488956>>214488982In the end it is Hermes who achieves the revenge on her own, and she actually does it. Fucking nice.
>>214490818Jolyne really feels experienced in fights. I wonder fin Jotaro had her take martial arts or something. Or maybe she just picked it up on the street.
>>214492611I love how you have no argument because I'm objectively right
>>214491010DId he die or was he just grievously injured?
>>214492589She joined a gang, maybe there
>>214489560Anasui is creepy and cringe.
>>214489039>>214489072>>214489096>>214489124I can understand if she isn't your favorite JoJo, but you have to recognize Jolyne is based.
>>214492654Pretty sure he just died. Though like Ermes it was totally justified and the person she was killing was a criminal asshole.
>>214491708Well we’re you wearing revealingly outfits that showed off your brain? That’s on you.
>>214492816>it was totally justifiedNot legally
>>214492630Read the manga slower faggot, they explain all this shit in the pages you clearly didn't read ITT
>>214492399You can't fool me, falseflagging bot.
>>214492850How can something in the manga explain Araki's creative decisions made outside of the manga? Show me which page ITT breaks the fourth wall for Araki to explain why he created these characters and what they contribute to the narrative.
Sweaty Jolyne’s feet in my face omg
>>214492975I would lick her clean every night
>>214492844The law was complicit in her unfair imprisonment. Seriously, every civil servant in SO is portrayed as hilariously cruel and corrupt.
>>214493192>I was unfairly imprisoned therefore I can execute people in the streetsNo
>>214489418>>214489450>>214489485>le normal but psychopathic murdererso edgy!
>>214490948Weather only attempted to kill.
>>214492844Fuck the law
>>214493262Kira done right
>>214493340Kida done right is normal Kira
>>214489560Is this some yandere shit?
>>214493262I like him because he reminds me of myself. Intelligent, nihilistic, and with a wicked sense of humor.
Reminder that Anasui literally never met Jolyne once before this
>>214493247i wasn't saying jolyne wasn't a murderer, i'm saying that the surrounding circumstances make what she did understandable and on some level justifiable, even if her actions were illegal
>>214493294He killed at least one of the KKK members after getting a stand.
>>214493394No he's the simp
>>214493340>>214493385Kira done right is Adachi
>>214493430And yet we’re supposed to believe that the entire group considers themselves to be true companions.
>>214493637Shut up Adachi
>>214489450Is this nigga autistic, like real autistic I mean
>>214493917>every man relevant to jolyne's life is autistic in one way or another
>>214489669Annasui a shit but this scene is really fucking cool.
>>214489096I CAN SMELL YOUR CUNT
>>214489837>it took me 15 years to come to terms with having my female protagonist get punched once in a while>so I'll just go full fucking body horror just like the little girls reading Jump like
>>214490491>that broken joint
>>214490047Dio looks like an older Fugo, god damn it, Araki.
When this gets made into an anime the ed should be “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. It fits the storyline so perfectly. They can use the start of it for the calm endings, and use the drum fill and parts after for the dramatic cliff hangars.
>>214489744>MarlinsWas this running around the time they won the world series or before it?
>>214491380Blasphemy! I'd rather qt3.14 FF than random bimbo redhead.
>>214492399>botsWhy are you upset that people like Jolyne and Hermes?
>>214489669Who did it better?
>>214492271Yeah, I like it too.
>>214491020Thanks for the dump like always OP.
>>214493430That's why his obsession is fitting. It proves he's not right in the head even more than Emporio's story. >>214494369You have to understand. When that urge has been building up for a while, you have to release it all at once. You can't hold back.
>>214493430He mistook her for Hermes, happens often.
>>214488455This is a good spread.
>>214491293This is the Ireneverse Stone Ocean gang. What was Girl Valentine wrongly accused of?
>>214488535>Kiss stand cry is URYAAAANice
>>214492399>if people disagree with me they must be botssasuga
>>214489128That was my first reaction to Speed King>It heats things up wow that sounds lameThen he gave Yasuoh a heat stroke during the Blue Hawaii fight and I've resent my statement after that.
I like that Araki made Jolyne a badass in a way that's organic. She's a stubborn belligerent brat and it makes sense that she'd be that way since she hates her father so much.Also like the contrast between Jolyne and Johnny, it's interesting that Araki went from an empowered badass female MC to a crybaby disempowered male MC.
>>214488982Yo I listened to significant other by limp Bizkit and it definitely helped with the fight (same with the In a Silent Way fight) the moment Break stuff started playing when Sports Maxx killed that woman was perfect.
>>214489279So it's like the Kei Kira situation. In the Jojo she really wasn't gone but for the readers she's been gone for YEARS.
>>214490818>>214490851AAAA THIS IS SO SIMPLE AND NEAT
>>214489314Okay, is it bad that I actually like Annasui? Murder aside, his motivations throughout the whole part are basically pure and his stand is awesome even if underused.
NEVER FORGETNEVER FORGIVE
>>214496429Weather was actually gone longer than Hermes. And unlike Hermes, Araki had to do it with how fucking broken his stand is until we get to fucking BR.
>>214496969He changed gender when he smelled Jolyne's sweat and blood through the halls and knew she was the one. He also keeps up with prison gossip and found out why Jolyne got in prison in the first place so he knew that Jolyne isn't a lesbian.
>>214489837ahahaha this is one of the most crazy arc out of all jojo. The manliest one and the most gory out of them all.
>>214489980That's it peeps you get to know why Pucci is one of if not the best antagonist of jojo (at least the most competent one).
What killed the hype?
>>214491271She didn't know how to use it properly i guess>>214491305
>>214493652You don't. You get to see them get along together and the culmination of all of this is their mutual sacrifice at the end. The trip outside the prison is what binds them a bit more
>>214489669>>214495226Is this the "I'm the worst character in my series" pose
I appreciate your efforts OP. it can be overwhelming when perusing the sea of great works to engage with and so little time. Having them presented in a bite sized structure is nice and manageable, no analysis paralysis or FOMO. Keep it up
>>214488982And so Hermes EXITS for a long,long time
>>214489314Why must he dress like a stripper?
>>214489743Anon what's the first fucking rule about Fight Club.
>>214489560What a creep
>>214489688Time for one of the best fights in Part 6
>>214492509that's koichi, by far
>>214496824he's good, better than hermes actuallypeople just wanted another qt
>>214489743wow hold on a minute now...
>>214490106>Imagine if survivor came in contact with crew from part 3.
>>214490521God, there's something about a A good'ol fistfight that just scratches that itch
>>214490818>>214490851How can string be so cool
>>214499199Kakyoin would've figured things out
>>214491020Thanks for the dump OP
>>214498775Koichi is cute at least.
>>214496969He's shit in both forms
>>214491935Its the ending that gets me each time. Next volume is gonna be amazing because the pose that jolyne strikes at the end is the all time high pose of the serie
>>214490818This is why Stone Free is one of my favorite stnd and easily the best main jojo stand. So inventive without feeling out of no where (sadly Golden experience is amazing and inventive but the way he used felt off)
>>214489314The man that ruined stone ocean
>>214499818Same. I remember my most recent read through that part hit me way harder than when I originally read it.
>>214496969Will the anime leave this in or always has him as a male?
>>214489633>>214489669I loved this ability. Shame it got replaced with body manipulation. Body manipulation wouldn't be so bad but Anasui only gets to use offensively twice. The rest of time it's just him using it jump in front of attacks.
>>214488101Araki wanted gender subversion
>>214500184they'll make him androginous male from the start
>>214500385Did it really become just body manipulation? I remenber not. He still technically has the same ability. Dive down in something/somebody
>>214497242This. Pucci literally created the SBR universe.
>>214489980https://youtu.be/9BNFCZwV18I Oh shit here we go
>>214500683He never does the power storing thing again
>>214500920power storing was to similar to sale's stand desu
>>214501127>This Diver Down is very similar to Kraftwerk. While it can't lock people in place it can story, the way Annasui utilized it in this volume was pretty cool.
bump for reading
>>214497242>>214500810Pucci didn't create the SBRverse.
>>214503790Yes he did.
Oh boy here we go again.
>>214505011Made in Heaven.
>>214488755Stone Ocean brought back the crazy and the gore from Battle Tendency and it's amazing.
>>214505142Please don't compare the worst part with the 2nd best part.
>>214489314the man i want to fuck the most in stone ocean
>>214492230Why do you SBRshitters insist on fagging up Stone Ocean threads? Just go read Steel Ball Run again, or something.
>Part 6 and 8 takes place in the same year 2011. Will we a part 6 characters counterpoint in part 8 or will they pop up in part 9.
>>214505891Know your place, SOtist.
>>214488057Why does Araki always draw a close-up of Jolyne's vagina?
>>214506565When has he done that
>>214505990This. They must drum up the energy to complain otherwise they'd slip up and admit they like Jolyne and SO isn't bad.
>>214488956>her arc is completeTime for araki to drop her from the story and never aknowledge her again until its time for endgame
>>214504946>>214505118I'm pretty sure Araki has gone on record saying that the Ireneverse and the SBR universe aren't the same universe.
>>214488982>that split headIs Hermes the most powerful jojo character?
>>214505891Because SOfags shit up the SBR threads by the end. Also Johnny a cute.
>>214505891Faggots will be faggots
>>214488956>>214488982Hermes is so damn cool
>>214489096First Jolyne, then Johnny. Gappy scat next?
>>214491293The dude in the back looks kinda like joshu
>>214508686Who are you agreeing with
>>214489808Survival is the coolest stand fight in the entire prison
>>214489560>Hetero romance is creepy and abusiveWhat did Araki mean by this?
>>214507676 Why did he even think this would be a good idea? It's not like he'd never handle big character groups before.
>>214489669Why did Araki stop giving canon heights after SO?
>>214489669my favorite pose
>>214491807More memorable than fucking sports maxx desu
>>214509538he writes on an arc by arc basis, he wanted to give hermes developement and a solo arc then afterwards just didnt think abt how to fit her into everything else
>>214509538SO had a crew with massive potential, it sucks. The characters have some kind of relationship with Jolyne but hardly if ever interact with each other, even those who are established to hang out from before like Emporio's team. It's the opposite from Giorno and the gang.
>>214508858I'm agreeing anons did indeed shit up the last SBR threads and it's only natural that some leftover conversation gets carried out in spite
I'm gonna miss my wife bros
>>214511049Stone Ocean is like the opposite of Golden WindSO:>great MC>meh allies>meh MOTW>great villain & stand>great endingGW:>meh MC>great allies>great MOTW>meh villain & stand>meh ending
>>214511299Yep. It seemed like Araki learned from his mistakes with SBR making a bigger effort to cover all those things simultaneously and doing well with them for the most part, but got ambitious and fell back into old habits with JJL a little, we'll see how it goes after it's finished I guess.
>>214511174I mean it was only one thread, they're doing this to every thread
>>214509442>Joleyne and Annasui counterparts wher had a better life thus having a more stable relationship. Araki knew exactly knew what he was doing. Araki knew exactly what he was doing.
>>214511700It was for several threads in the later half, so this is karma. Also SO isn't interesting enough to make meta over at this point in time.
Part 6 isn't the worst p->Jojo is Jotaro with tits, so original!>Pathetic """tragic""" villain with little presence and motive that isn't his>Shallow main crew>Lackluster fights>Forgettable minor villains>Weak interactions>Slow, uninteresting plot progression>Shitty, ugly prison setting where nothing happens, shitty Florida>Panties on head retarded stands
>>214511700It was the very last thread, the culmination of a month of comfy SBR posting, only for it to be tragically cut short because faggots wouldn't stop talking about Jotaro being autistic. I'll never forgive and I'll never forget
What are /a/'s opinions on SO Dio? It seems like Araki was trying to make up for his blunders in writing SC Dio by retroactively giving him more of an actual personal philosophy and thematic connection to the series through his self awareness of fate, beyond being the big bad to the Joestars. It makes sense that after a crushing defeat and spending the most of his immortal life in a casket underwater he would take to appreciating the little things in life and find a more cathartic purpose related to his circumstances, which felt lacking in part 3 where they just have his world conquering ambition resume increased tenfold. So even his newfound interest in exploring human intimacy with Pucci is a compelling addition to the character. Still the whiplash the contrast between his two depictions creates can get too strong at times for me, especially since this is prequel!Dio. It makes his death feel all the more cheap and badly handled along the distant developement of the JJBA story back when it happened, it might be the reason Araki uses his death more as a plot point for SO and doesn't dwell too much on the specifics surrounding it other than Jotaro and co showing up to BTFO him(because it would expose the progression as largely nonsensical). It makes me wonder what kind of changes he would make to the character had he written SC today.
>>214512791you're 300 posts too late to hook anyone
>>214512950>Jotaro being autisticI'll only be satisfied if they go all out and spam Part 3 and Part 4 storytimes too.
>>214513336Those have already come and gone
>>214512950So much left unsaid. It was the perfect time to gather together and reflect back on the ideas behind SBR all the metaposting and discussion along the way had been building up to. When did it all go so wrong?
>>214513401>Those have already come and goneShame. Perhaps the energy will remain for when they come around again.
>>214505891nigga the whole reason these threads stay afloat is because they keep going offtopic. Most SO ''fans'' drop their meme reactions to the oneliners in the volume and say nothing else unless its to bitch people arent doing the real discussing for them
>>214513461Keep SBRposting, brother, it's the only way they'll pay for their transgressions.
>>214514063I can't believe Gyro never interacted with Tusk even once, what was Araki thinking?
Am I the only one who thinks HOLE would be suitable for part 6? I feel like grungey 90s music fits for SOhttps://youtu.be/Wz8pM_ZbEh8
>>214514161Stone Ocean is for the hoodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McWEab2zwSE
>>214493576If he's not yandere, then why >>214495226 post this?
>>214514321Unironically the only reason I'm somewhat glad Anasui got transed is that I can't stand the idea of yet another Araki female love interest that is a love crazy archetype like Yukako was to Koichi. That didn't prevent the developement between him and Jolyne from being just as shit, though. Who knows, maybe abusive lesbians would've improved the trope.
>>214514460FF should've been Jolyne's love interest, at least that one makes some fucking sense
>>214514297this is hilariously bad lmao
>>214514297This is great
>>214515357>FF>not Hermès if you wanted the lesbian routeI'd even take Weather Report because of the idea of a man searching for his past and a woman trying to escape the trappings of her own intrigues me.
>>214511299>meh villain & standHow dare you.
>>214490747He's not that competent really,the true difference between him and the other one is that he doesnt get cocky ,which makes him look more competent than he really is
>>214514130How did Gyro see stands? I never understood that. Even before he got the corpse eye he could see stands.
>>214514460But Yukako was the highlight of DiU
>>214515357If there's one thing that Jojo has taught me is that making sense is overrated
>>214516545If only she'd actually raped and/or murdered Koichi.
>>214516020I mean in execution. Diavolo/King Crimson had great moments but a weird power set and role
>>214516545Imagine strapping Koichi to that chair and turning it on.
>>214514063Tusk a cute, I want to adopt him
>>214516977Everything about Whitesnake was way more retarded than King Crimson.
>>214517928Explain your reasons.
>>214513135>What are /a/'s opinions on SO Dio?He's a gay pederast
>>214514321Because they are doing the exact same pose
>>214516545 The anime is so incredibly ugly.
I want to go balls deep inside Johnny's loose ass with my girthy 8 incher while he sleeps
>>214513135This is the first time I'm rereading SO in many years, but his sudden "humanity" is still jarring. I don't know, it's probably because I got too used to the original Dio, who was supposed to be a pompous bastard added to the one too many retcons in SO.
>r34 artists choose to make porn of ugly males when THIS existsPorn artists are more hacky than Araki himself
>>214491024Yeah, if he could but Jolyne would put up a hell of a fight if not win. Plus she's a moralfag, I don't see Jolyne cheating on anyone. She'll just loudly break up with him.
>>214519800This is literally how Dio behaved in part 3 before Dio's World
>>214505891>>214508686>>214508063you do know that by the end of the SBR threads when Mister Storytime stated he wanted to do SO Threads the ppl there started to hate on SO? + even if some people were trying to shit up sbr threads i don't think it was as big as what SBR fans are trying to achieve here for like 7 volumes straight they've been spamming.It's just plain sad.
>>214489665That made me almost drop the part. Some anon told me that I was past the worst once I got through that. Bleh
Araki's body horror does nothing to me. Am I sick?
>>214520167>started to hate on SOSO was already hated to begin with
>>214521912Not really, I've become quite desensitized myself. Eye damage is still fucked up though.
>>214519741based>>214520167I'm liking SO so far, but there doesn't really seem to be much to talk about. It's basically monster of the week stuff so far with no much character depth beyond Jolyne being based>>214521959For me, it's the string in Jolyne's skin
>>214521912Part 6's art style makes me more sick than the gore to be honest.
>>214516323After he and Johnny rode across the devil palm he can see them, I think it's implicit from that point on that Gyro remains a dormant stand user.
>>214513996they ignored him because he told them the truth
>>214522022Yup it's just as monster of the week stuff as the beginning of SBR was. SBR drifted then away from this formula by the end (SO does it but a bit too late)
>>214521926It's changing with ppl rereading + this Storytime is doing a magnificient job changing this.
>>214522304When does SBR get good? I’m on chap 15 (vol 3)
>>214522304>>214522022There's no JoJo part without a monster of the week
>>214522368SBR broke away from that shit after Scary Monsters, and even then, most of the early monster of the week stuff served the purpose of developing Gyro and Johnny.
>>214522352Around volume 5
>>214522022>the string in Jolyne's skinWhile it does make me kind of squirm, peeling off the skin around the nails is absolute horror.
>>214522368Phantom Blood? Battle Tendency?Monster of the week came with stands.
>>214522402Early SBR up until before the beginning of scary monsters really bored me but I was hooked on the characters and the intrigue behind their backstories and relationship is what kept me going. Now that I'm done and SBR has become not only my favorite part but one of my favorite mangas, I look at the early chapters with a greater appreciation. Theyre important introduction pieces in setting up the tone and pace for the rest of the part and the race exposition feels so nostalgic looking back. It was overwhelming on first read because there's so many racers and you dont know which will stick long enough for you to care about, so it becomes a lot more enjoyable on reread when you're already familiar with what will become the central cast. Boom Boom family and the other minor antagonists still boring AF but Johnny and Gyro's interactions make them worth it.
>>214522352Scary Monsters is when it starts picking up
>>214522344Its not any more awful than other Jojo parts. Hits and misses as always, does some things worse and better than its predecessors. With its own distinctive charm to keep it afloat
>>214488191>14 hours without this shit bait getting a (you)Genuinely proud of you guys.
>>21448966912 years seems a bit lenient for a double homicide
>>214490047God damn this part's Dio is ugly. Good thing Araki got his act together later, or did better at least
>>214519180To think this happened because they wanted do pander to fujos but somehow made everyone far less attractive in the process
>>214523309There's something that really bothers me about the way Araki's started drawing eyes, everyone seems to have the same eyes and expression now. They're just too dark all the time. Your pic makes me miss smug asshole Dio.
>>214490047I really like how this part shows us the softer side of duo’s charisma, cause in part three he’s either intimidating af or visually seething about joestars
>>214523361Is there an actual source for this? I've seen it before in these threads, but I've no idea whether it's true or not.
>>214523309>>214523442Every Dio is ugly, Diego being the exception.
>>214513135I think dio should always be physically and mentally intimidating, even if you’re showing off a softer side of him. He’s just too twinky and subdued in this part.
>>214523801This. Only pre-vampire Dio and Diego are attractive.
for some reason I feel bad seeing jolyne get hurt but enjoy when johnny gets hurt
>>214526087That's perfectly reasonable and fine, Jolyne deserves to be happy whereas Johnny is at his most delicious when he suffers.
>>214511274S-she doesn't really lose all relevance, r-right bros?
>>214527829She had a cameo in Jojolion oddly enough, and Araki's drawn her for a couple of events and promotions and stuff. She's somewhat more relevant than most side characters.
>>214527985yup and ppl stop thinking she's a rockhuman lmao.He only used her to redraw her (myb he like her design) + to show that they are no different from any woman (Anya too isn't a rock human but was drawn there)
I completely forgot Hermes disappears from the story for a while (?), it's like Araki wanted to make her Jolyne's main bro, but then changed his mind. She feels like Polnareff a little, except he had way more screentime.
>>214526816>Jolyne with Jotaro>"Fuck you dad, you fucking piece of shit">Johnny with his dad>"iyaaaa, please love me daddy ;_;"muh dick can't handle it
>>214528114>She feels like Polnareff a little, except he felt like the main character.fify
>>214528114Both a good and a bad thing about SO is that all of Jolyne's allies have strong relationships with Jolyne, but not much with each other (Aside from Weather and Anasui) which is the opposite issue of GW, where the allies had established relationships with each other but none were very close to Giorno. Hermes (and Weather, and Anasui) come and go - almost every time they show up they team up with Jolyne, but otherwise they spend time offscreen injured.
>>214530530Did you know Araki wrote Polnareff as Jotaro's opposite? No wonder his role felt much bigger than it actually was.
>>214511049>It's the opposite from Giorno and the gang.Can we drop this meme? Go back and read thru/watch the part, the characters hardly interact with each other in any meaningful capacity as well and most of the time are just at each others throats, It's just tricking you into buying their supposed comradery because they're always in a group(except in battles) and are pre-established to know each other and have the leader figure, but that's really about it. I can buy FF's interaction with Jolyne/Hermes more than those characters, WR, Annasui and Emporio are complete whos however.
>>214530753I'd say Araki is just not that good at handling a large cast of characters.
>>214531535Do we ever get more kino moments where the 3 girls hang out like when they played catch or was that it?
>>214531605I started to realize this during Shitdust Crusaders and Homo is Unbreakable cemented it. Thank god for Kino Ball Run.
>>214531713But SBR terribly handles most of the characters outside of the main duo. It's no different.
>>214531786True. I will never forgive nor forget Sandman.
>>214531885I already forgot him because he was nothing promising
>>214531977He was the most promising one out of the lot despite such limited screentime.
