Just reached the Tubular Bells chapters of SBR.
Love the toast between Gyro and Johnny. Always gets me.
Tubular Bells itself is a really interesting stand. I wonder how long it takes Araki to devise something so unique.

So good, I notice the town is called Moriah or something like that now instead of Duwang.

Just one question is it constantly going to be this "stand of the week" type stuff ala part 3?

I guess so, but it feels way more varied than part 3. At least with part 4 almost everything felt like it was either adding something to the character relationships and development or just adding personality to the town. The only section of part 4 I could see like part 3 is when the second arrow shows up and new users arrive(being vague about the details because I'm not trying to spoil too much).

Part 3 literally felt like the group was just moving to different set pieces and fighting whatever gimmicky stand was meant to be set there. It also doesn't help that Jotaro shows little to no emotions or personality, which sucks especially since he was the successor of Joseph. I would consider part 5 more "stand of the week"-ish than part 4.

Get off from my Jotaro :(

Part 4 totally stand of the week, they visit chef stand, stalker girl, dentist stand and whatever in town.. Its also give more episodic feel because the low-key atmosphere.

Part 4 has a much better villain and a cool cat/mouse dynamic. Not to mention more imaginative and interesting stands.

It also makes it so Jonathan Joestar with Dio's head is not only the Holy Corpse, but both come back from the dead.

How about some limited-edition collectible watches styled after the members of Passione?

http://www.seiko-watch.co.jp/spirit/jojo/

Giorno, Buccellati, Mista

Trish, Narancia, Fugo, Abbachio

On the product page, each watch has a description of how it matches the character (if you can read Japanese), but some of the touches are pretty easy to see anyway, like the fact that Mista's only has the hours labeled for the numbers of Sex Pistols.
Apparently the watches will even come with an AR app for your smartphone that lets you see the character's stand if you point it at the watch face.

Of course, you'll pay quite the price at 42000 yen each (roughly US$440), but for a hardcore JoJo fan it's probably worth it.

No, he needs to just show up and not realize an entire universe of time has passed him buy, and ask Josuke what happened to his silly haircut.

Also, just read though 'Rohan Kishibe Goes to Gucci'. Mostly just an advertisement sadly.

Anyways


If these really are the official subs, does this mean the official term is just Hamon? No translating it to Ripple?

Maybe it's a simple case of not wanting to translate technique names so that they sound better? Like with Kamehameha.

"Sendô" seems to be the name of the discipline (what's this thing about "creating" Sendô?), and "hamon" is really just "ripple".
Not that it makes sense to use Japanese words in this context either anyway...

It's a light novel not written by Araki about Jorge Joestar (Jonathan's son aka George II) for the 25th anniversary. To say that it's batshit insane would be an understatement.

Thinking about it still upsets me sometimes.

I prefer this colour scheme to his All Star Battle appearance.
That game could really benefit from a colour customizer.

Anyway, as I'm reading SBR for the second time, for some reason, I'm enjoying it a hell of a lot more. You can see a few plot holes though, like why did Diego keep Ferdinand's Scary Monster Stand when he recieved the Turbo eye? Was it because he was affected by the Sand before hand? If so, why didn't Gyro keep it when he got his eye, as he was infected too.
Still a hell of a fun read though.

In regards to Diego; it's the Turbo Eye that allowed him to keep the effects of Scary Monsters, at least that's the best way to understand it.

I've marathon'd most of Stardust Crusaders today, from Empress through D'Arby the Gamer.

I wasn't feeling it at first, for some reason, but I just sat down and put the time in and am now really into it.
I'm also looking forward to the other parts simply because I know less about them. (Plus Duwang.)

EDIT: And just finished Part 3! What a showdown. It makes me wish I hadn't known Dio's power beforehand, but it was still quite the ending. Dem time stops, dem knives, dat road roller... dayum.
