Jojo is honestly one of the best manga series I've ever read. All of the cancerous haters can fuck off.

it would be great if we were in the late 80s/ 90s. Watching it in 2016 you'll notice all the flaws it has and miss how groundbreaking it was for its time.

It's on the same level as Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. Battle shounen cancer for new fags.

I read Jojo up until part four like six years ago and I'm not really a fan of it. I might just be biased against shounen or something, but I even tried watching the most recent series since I figured I've already read up to that point and it really didn't capture me.

As far as "shounen" go, Monthly girls is way batter. If you're talking about Shounen battleshit I loved the Yozakura Quartet remakes, but they had better animation and the best sound design I've seen in one of those shows. I'd love if they got more seasons or even short OVAs.

The manga does have a good world and concept, but I still don't like it.

Part 1 is exposition. It establishes the Joestar bloodline and who Dio is. Ep 11 is when most people get hooked.

Matthew Myers
Matthew Myers

part 1 is godawful

part 2 has a good MC and the characters are so dumb and over the top that it's funny.

part 3 is monster of the week crap with a boring MC.

part 4 is SoL mixed with monster of the week crap. Basically araki didn't know what the fuck he was doing with the plot unitl he introduced kira.

part 5 is basically part 3 egypt arc with extra gayness and asspulls.

I dropped it at part 6.

From the perspective of someone who used to be super into Jojo as no longer is, it's severely overhyped.
It's a fun series, don't get me wrong. Araki is definitely good at entertaining the readers, the art is flashy and so are the fights and comedy.
Once you actually take a closer look at it though, plot holes become more obvious. Araki really isn't good at remembering the canon he's already established, and characterizations fluctuate massively.
So all in all. It's a good series, but is it the best shonen ever? That's stretching it

I like it, I read all 7 parts a couple of years ago, the animated series is solid and only has minor flaws, the fanbase on Cred Forums is annoying though.
I'll probably marathon part 4 once it finishes.

mfw JoJo is normieshit now

I like seeing it animated but the normies it's pulled in and all their hilarious "it was me dio xDDD" memery was not at all worth it

It's the only manga I've had even the slightest amount of interest in and knowing we have such a bad rap makes me want to die

All new characters apart from Koichi in the beginning.
Confusing stand powers that will make them think the series is going downhill.
Not many potential memes until King Crimson.

You forgot Jotaro, Enya, and DIO. The last two are kinda pushing it, though, I suppose.

I was finally interested and then I loved I Am an Alien! and Highway Star, what a great ride

Jojo should have stayed an influential series that no one outside of Japan knew much about. Youtube, twitter, tumblr, and reddit have ruined the fun.

The worst case of having an anime adaptation fuck everything up.

Jordan Collins

What? Jotaro only appears at the very start for like one chapter. Dio and Pucci shenanigans is part 6. Last visual of Enya I remember is the part 4 photo.

If by shounen you mean "shounen shows that focus around people with powers fighting each other", then sure I could see it on a top 10 list.

Joshua Kelly
Joshua Kelly

DIO and Enya are barely in Part 5, both of them are mentioned like twice throughout the whole part, but they're still familiar faces.

And Jotaro is still in the part and basically kickstarts the plot. I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

William Moore

I dropped it a couple of times cause I couldn't get past episode 3-5
Once I finally got to part two it all became worth it to me though

Part 6 and 7 are masterpieces. The latter specially is the culmination of all the previous parts' main themes (destiny, fate, free will, the nature of evil and of good, etc)

It is a pretty damn good series overall.
One of the points that drew me to it was the artstyle. It has a very different visual from many mangas, and I surely can appreciate that. The concept of stands is also very interesting, it allows for a lot of creativity when you make a non-human entity to be a character of it's own, and hold unique powers.
It's a very fun and creative series, it explores fun, but well-known themes, knows when to be serious or silly and it has some rad visuals.
Araki also really nails character presentation.

Won't be very influential if no one knew what JoJo was.

Definitely, though it's in a seinen magazine now so the lines are a bit blurred. If I'm a 'big fan' of a battle shounen series it's gonna be HxH, but I find Araki to be clever and creative in a similar way to Togashi, so he's probably my second favourite.

I like that Jojo is basically pure, undiluted, batshit creativity poured onto pages, how full of iconic moments it is, and how smart the generational structure is in keeping it fresh even over 100 volumes in. It's not my top battle shounen because it tends to be too straightforward, non stop fights and pursuit get a bit tiring. Part 4 is my favourite because it's a bit more SoL.

From the perspective of people who aren't big fans, Jojo's Bizarre Adventures is one of the best comedy series.
