I know this is kind of a weird thing to say about any Jojo part, but Stone Ocean is just too over-the-top. The battles are so completely insane (and long, and they happen one after another with almost no break) that part 6 is just exhausting to read and at times can be a disjointed mess.
That being said, I think Jolyne is one of the best protagonists in the whole series and some of the best character development alongside Jonathan and Johnny.
I can agree with it being somewhat exhausting, I wish we'd gotten a bit more development from the main cast outside of battles. I didn't find myself getting attached to them in the same way I did with characters from other parts, and I think they could've benefited from a bit more downtime between fights to flesh out their personalities. Jolyne is definitely a strong protagonist though, and it was upsetting to see her go through everything she did just to die without knowing whether Emporio succeeded.
Yep. The whole thing feels crowded and the story or characters don't get a chance to breath.
I also find a lot of the part 6 characters and stands overdesigned.
Done, that's all of them.
DIO did nothing wrong.
>Dio Brando and Jonathan fighting Mista
I don't even know who would win.
It's bittersweet. The Joestars came out on top, but not without plenty of sacrifices. They at least achieved what they set out to do, which was to live lives free from DIO's influence, even if they only live on as reincarnations.
>there are people that unironically thought Stone Ocean's ending was shit
Like I said, they "lived on" as reincarnations of themselves, not literally.
He does it twice in the same part and they're both during kinda major moments, I guess.
So I was watching Purple Rain the other day and I saw this guy in the audience.
Could he be part of the inspiration for Jotaro's design?
I suppose, I guess what I was trying to get across was that even if they had new souls they obviously linked to and were very similar to their original selves, aside from having more peaceful lives that led to them being a bit more mellow/not being in jail. They were the lives that the original versions of themselves wished they had.
Jotaro's design doesn't look inspired by anything other than being a typical 70s manga Bancho.
Do you think Araki would ever visit britbongland in the future? It'd be really cool to meet him someday
Lets say Capcom got the JoJo license again and made a new fighter that played similarly to Heritage to the Future, but like HttF they only focused it on 1 Part. Would you have them just make a new balanced Part 3 fighter, or would you base it on another part? Keep in mind the roster would end up being about the same size. The only exception is that you can combine Parts 1+2 since neither has a ton of characters.
A HttF fighter circling around Part 5 would be incredible, just to fuck around with King Crimson.
Heritage to the Future was so fucking broken with DIO, just imagine how fucked it would be with Diavolo.
Is it possible to make Jojo poses without furiously clenching your anus?
I'm having a hard time with it myself.
> The battles are so completely insane (and long, and they happen one after another with almost no break) that part 6 is just exhausting to read
I felt that way about parts 5, 6 and 7. I enjoy them, but I get fatigued by the non stop action, pursuit and lack of variation in the pace. It's probably why I like 4 the best, because it has slower moments to give me a break.
Dio wasn't even top-tier in HftF
No good player will ever let you get a time stop off
>It's as long as a fucking episode.
I can only imagine how long that took to make, keep up the good work.
Thought it was just me as well. No one mentioned anything for the last one. I can upload it to MEGA but I doubt anyone wants to download almost 2gbs for a single video.
That editing is great, but that remix is painfully so painfully shit I almost feel bad.
Does anyone actually watch 20 minutes of that shit?
>Does anyone actually watch 20 minutes of that shit?
In two weeks minimum we'll have our first glimpse of what Diamond is Unbreakable will look like and even then i'll just be a scrap of information. I can't wait that long, my dick is starving.
Plus the videos are generally well made, except for the music this time which is a shame.

http://myreadingmanga.info/2-closed-world-jojos-bizarre-adventure-dj-kr/ Are you sure you weren't in the previous thread and aren't looking for an excuse for it to be reposted?
Huh, kinda spooky that you'd ask for something so specific when I had it on hand. But yeah, the art's real nice. Shame there aren't more doujins with Diego out there.
He bubbled some funk to give his bug a raging beetle boner.
Well yeah, but it's implied with Josuke and his smug face after they find the wasp and this page were Joubin is trying to figure out what happened.
That sadness that I did not feel at that scene
Is now here.
>The whole thing feels crowded
Like an overcrowded prison?
>and the story or characters don't get a chance to breath.
Like they're drowning in a STONE OCEAN maybe?
I've sort of come to terms with the ending of SO but it still fucks me up thinking that Jotaro died not knowing if he'd succeeded in saving his daughter, shortly followed by Jolyne dying without knowing whether Pucci had been defeated. Then Emporio knowing everything but having to keep it to himself till the day he dies. I couldn't imagine how painful it'd be to grow up with those memories, you'd drive yourself insane wondering whether all that crazy shit really happened. But then he'd see Irene and the others and all the memories would come flooding back to him, he'd have one hell of a time letting go of the original versions of them.
Tried to be a partskipper, but just finished part 1 and am working on part 2.
Because Weather Report goes around in Jamiroquoai's main singer's silly buffalo hat for a long while and those are the two more popular songs of that band.
Virtual Insanity also had a music video that is kinda premade for Jojo:
>try to post image
Someone should make a Stone Ocean edit for this.
It was necessary. Without the universe reset we wouldn't have gotten steel ball run
The translation is nowhere near duwang-tier, but the actual scan quality is pretty bad
It's a shame because part V actually starts to get good near the end. You'd think given how popular Jojo is we'd have better part V scans
It wouldnt have made sense because stands weren't awakened until way later, and not to mention the way stands actually work are very different than the original universe
And we wouldn't have had diego and all the cameos
I'd also like to see this.
It literally has a Joestar as the main character and a Zeppelli as the two main characters and we see what is clearly a stand within the first couple of chapters. What the fuck is a story with those elements if not a JoJo story?
Dumping a couple of artpieces that I've never seen posted on the internet before.
From the JoJo a Go Go collection.
Alright that's it.
The rest has been scanned and posted before I'm pretty sure.
If only I was caught up with Part 6 so I didn't have to spoil myself in gathering the images. I totally wish I could compete with Doc trying to make a better video.
>there's at least five other doujins in a similar vein by the same artist but none are scanned
You need some more Gay Priest in your life.
>part V actually starts to get good near the end
If it's a never-ending ending, does that mean it never got good?
Why don't you try reading some of it. You might like it.
Is it weird that I'm interested in EoH purely for the story
The gameplay looks like ass and I imagine I'm not getting any characters I actually give a fuck about like Weka, Straights, FF or Bruf but the story itself sounds like might be worth playing the game for
I'm hyped, dammit.
during erased time everything still moves according to fate except for diavolo, Tusk would have hit that beam and diavolo would've preemptively erased and moved out of the way so it's not even a matter of speed. But yes infinite rotation would hit during an erase it's just that it's not going to since diavolo can predict.
So he could re-enact diego's final attack, he could predict johnny's underground attack without needing fodder, and he could light johnny on fire without johnny knowing unlike with diego. He probably can't set up wires since that requires him to stay in one spot and during an erase his horse would move. But that initial scene where johnny shoots a bunch of bullets and they go after diego's horse Diavolo would've been dehorsed right then and there since erases doesn't stop things in their tracks like a stop. and diavolo can't deflect away any of johnny's shots he can only dodge.
forgive the autism.
>that Araki will never give us himself
Well, that's the thing, we're getting an actual story mode by him. Wait, is he writing it or supervising it?
I'd imagine he's writing it himself - only he really has the right to deal with DIO, Pucci, and 「Heaven」
Pretty sure he's just supervising, unfortunately. Hopefully the people directing the story elements don't stray too far from what we'd expect of the characters, although with Araki supervising that's unlikely to happen.
How's everyone liking Part 8 so far? I'm on chapter 39, and while I like the change in tone to more of a mystery vibe I'm disappointed we haven't gotten much in the way of straight up fights.
One of my favorites
I didn't realize how much I liked the mystery/discovery parts until he
found Karera and immediately got into a fight and I got disappointed because I wanted him to talk to Karera to see what she knew
>Okuyasu is now the head of the mafia
>King Crimson/GER combo
my brain is melting
unless giorno was fighting diavolo i don't think GER would ever come into existence.
i'm not saying she's dumb but other jojo's are smarter, she's like johnathan who seems kind of slow at times but can pull through when she needs to.
and it seems pretty plausible with araki's line of thinking, which would be "sure string can make any shape" "but let me put in some of the more bizarre ones"
>Polnareff is now the villain of part 5
>Now Giorno, view the power of my REQUIEM STAND! THIS IS MY VENGANCE DIAVOLO! YOU TOOK MY LEGS, ILL TAKE THIS WORLD!
>oh no, now we have a common enemy. now we have to work together.
>diavolo condemned to die eternally across existence
>same with valentine
>eventually, they meet a reality where they're both in existence at the same place and time to utter the fated words:
"not this shit again"
>then they continue their purgatory of death
So was the Steel Balls... or did you all forget about this bit from Part 2?
Yeah, but it's a fucking powerful punchghost, with all the added power of STRING.
Didn't Heirophant Green kinda not follow the rules of punch ghosts that gets laid down later regarding their range, like it's stated early on that it gets more powerful with distance or something?
Cars is always left out in villain discussions because the poor bastard has no stand, in reality he could probably kill every other villain without even knowing about them.
Even though Kars is the leader and final battle, I always think of the villain of BT as all 3 main Pillar Men, Santana excluded. I feel like the one with the most impact (and my favorite) is Wham
>they use their powers to rescue handsless Avdol, he gets pierced with the Arrow and acquires Soft & Wet
>through "equivalent exchange" Gappy gets The World (?)
>the five of them battle god Dio
Or did I just spoil the game? Oopsies
You're garbage. None of the Tier-1 villains could beat him. What the fuck could Diavolo even do to him in the skipped time? Literally invincible. Whitesnake's brain would explode. Only GER would stand a chance, it would be whoever notices the other first. So probably Kars.
Heirophant green was never technically a punch ghost. It was just a long range humanoid stand kinda like Whitesnake.
It can stretch super far, so long as part of its coil is near kakyoin.
Really its humanoid form is probably not its true shape. Heirophant green may actually just be a crazy long tentacle, that kakyoin just got really creative with.
Congrats. Why don't you remove Kars dick from your mouth and actually read. Kars is weaker and slower than every other Stand. He has nothing going for him except his regeneration.
Since Jotaro onwards don't exist as Joestars in the Ireneverse, but (correct me if I'm wrong), everything before them does (Johnathan, Dio, Joseph), did any of SDC happen? As in Dio would exist and presumably be dredged up 100 years after sinking, in control of Johnathan's body, but with Jotaro to stop him. Does that mean Joseph had to gather up friends (probably just Iggy and Avdol) and try to stop Dio?
So all the people killed by MiH don't get to come back the same in the new universe or whatever, right?
So that means all Joestars from Jotaro onwards.
But that doesn't include Joseph, Johnathan, and Dio. So presumably Parts 1 and 2 happen the same in the Ireneverse
So when Dio comes back for the events of SDC, there is no Jotaro.
So I wonder what happened instead? They could make a light novel about Joseph trying to take down DIO, maybe with Avdol and Iggy's help (since he knew them before SDC happened)
Also Part 5 probably happened as planned (maybe Koichi doesn't go though?), and 4 would happen but without Jotaro (also maybe a different outcome?)
Looks like we've got a date and time for the stream.
What do you think Jotaro's Ireneverse name is?
>ending of SO
>Irene says they're waiting for her dad to finish buying a pack of cigs
>he emerges, clad in a wetsuit
>"Oh hey, kid. My name's Theodore Robert Jocelyn Botaro. But you can just refer to me as The Dolphinator."
so is the implication that Johnny started the SBR shop?
>mystery pair is either Bruno/Trish or Diavolo/Trish
>not a completely reworked Josuke with martial arts moves/Yasuho
I should have known I'd be disappointed when the first mystery character turned out to be Jotaro with a slightly tweaked character model.
>The blue alt color Bruno had is now his default color
Minigames in the story mode? Sweet.
Yesss all we need is annasui now, but they're gonna add more characters in I mean how did trish get it
All I can think of who's missing is annasui, who do you guys think will be next?
will there ever be a Part 5 ED featuring the main cast dancing?
Stone Ocean really did have the potential to be easily the best part. I agree with most of what you said; the action was just too dense, it gets fatiguing. On top of that, the characters just don't have enough fun. Jolyne gets super-serious after she "steels her nerves", it happens too soon in the story. Hermes NEVER does anything besides be angry and yell at stuff, they should have fleshed her out more as Jolyne's friend. Anasui is just so one-dimensional. Foo Fighters dies a bit too soon, but her character arc was one of the best in JoJo. Just not enough character-character interaction in general to give you a chance to like them.
Jolyne is one of the best JoJos, indeed, up there with Joseph and Josuke.
We're still missing Annasui, so maybe if we're lucky they'll do a part 6 batch with him and FF. Or maybe since Gappy is the only other character we're missing they'll announce him and Yasuho as well? It'd be weird not to have a second character repping part 8 so Gappy has someone to partner with.
Dio doesn't have to had baldness gene. Depending how many copies of this gene have his parents, If his father had only one and his mother had zero or one of then he had chances to doesn't inherit baldness.
The next announcement is going to be Anasui, FF, and a second Pucci since the one we have now seems to be limited to Whitesnake.
I was hoping they'd get the part 8 duo out of the way first because of the tournament but what can you do.
This is the best thread I woke up to all week, goddamn finally Bruno and Trish get confirmed, the hype meter is off the charts.
>That King Crimson colourscheme
That's the worst one.
>Not posting the special edition Chibi DIO comics.
If there's no Mickey this shit ain't Disney.
But that's absolutely ridiculous.
Doppio should just be a part of Diavolo's character and show up in win poses and such like with ASB. Maybe make him a sub character in the story mode if Diavolo's relevant there.
He might do, it's an important part of Diavolo after all. He might just be playable as Doppio with his own moveset too.
I'm not going to argue if that's a new character with new abilities and such that they didn't need to add.
To be fair, it's hard to make Moody Blues work in an arena battler with online play and it'd be bad if he was offline play only.
Same reason why Mandom is out of the question.
Moody Blues would definitely be an amazing Stand to adapt.
You could [record] certian moves then [play] them while you sandwich the opponent with Abbachi from the other side.
I really can't see what Doppio's moveset might be, I only remember him using King Crimson's arm and Epitaph. Surely they can't make much out of that.
I don't disagree in any way regarding Abbachio, but it's all a case of making it work in versus play isn't it. It's probably just a bit too hard but fuck, I don't mind if they try and fail.
Also the schedule shows they'll be splitting the qualifying rounds in two videos so we'll probably only be seeing blocks A, B, and C this time around.
I can't wait for the new localization name changes.
This doesn't prove anything except how Moody Blues fights
It will proll be like the Capcom game and use mini games to replace Stand battles that don't conform to the battle format.
Rewording D4C was an inside joke in /jojog/ long before we even knew ASB would be localized. These localizers knew exactly what kind of a reaction their memespouting would get.
YES! YES! YES!
Now we just need F.F, Annasui, and Fugo.
Calling it now guys:
PUCCI WITH C.MOON
HIS SPLASH ART IS PIC RELATED
Can someone translate this middle black box?
Does it mean Standless?
They reveal characters in clusters, like how they just announced Bruno/Diavolo/Trish; they're gonna reveal Anasui and FF and someone else next then Josuke and some Part 8 characters. Trust me.
>The only thing he has is regeneration.
His body can literally produce super vampire versions of anything he sees, it was only luck that meant Jojo never pushed to unleashing his ultimate attack:
Australian Fauna Barrage
So we have 4 PB characters, 7 BT characters, fucking 12 SC characters, 10 DiU characters, 8 VA characters and a measly 5 for SBR.
Those are all the parts that we can safely assume are done with announcements. That's pretty sad.
Does anyone have a higher resolution version of pic related?
Ringo would be hard as hell to make work, the game would have to remember the last second or two of gameplay at all times (scaled down for balance like the world is). Wekapipo is very possible and would be great. It'd help flesh out the Spin move set too.
Blackmore if he made it rain when he was picked I suppose. The pull back from Stands without having hamon makes SBR hard to pull from really. Sandman and HP should definitely be in. Sandman is kind of Echoes 2 so I can see why they might skip him really, but HP is unforgiveable to miss out.
Sorry man, all the signs are pointing to no.
If there was still an unrevealed SBR character who was already in ASB then I'd agree but there are none anymore and the biggest newcomer candidate has already been deconfirmed too.
Here's all of the ones they showed in one image together.
>Anyone who seriously expected Hot Pants is just kinda dumb if I gotta be honest.
It really isn't. She's shown to have ranged attacks with Cream Starter, she can use it to move herself around. It's a perfect stand for arena fighters and she'd be fun as fuck to play as.
>do attacks with abbacchio
>save them by holding r1 or whatever
>press r2 to summon moody blues and execute the attacks with extra damage, can combo at the same time
might be fun
Also, when MB was stuck in the pipe, it was able to Flurry of Blows
Just because it has a non-combat special ability doesn't take aeay from the fact that it's a punchghost
For every other concern, see the VA PS2 game.
It'd be hard to make one out of King Nothing at this point (maybe not after the current arc is done with how it's going) but Yagiyama at least should be DLC. They might struggle getting a certain rating if you could beat the shit out of an 8 year old like Tsurugi.
There's a big difference between chucking a kid harmlessly at a dude and having it rewind time with him unhurt and hitting a kid with the likes of Purple Haze's GHA and having him dissolve into dust or crushing him with a road roller.
