Recently, my friend coerced me into watching Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure. I was kinda into the idea for a while but I didn’t have strong enough desire to finally indulge in it. Until I found out that one of my favourite boi, Erwin Smith from Attack On Titan, shared the same voice actor with another iconic anime character, Jotaro Kujo.
I saw a very funny video made by someone who was as surprised by this fact as I was. This further increased my curiosity and I knew I now HAD to watch the show. I have seen so many memes around the show, I needed to know everything.
Only yesterday, I finished the first part of Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure, called Phantom Blood. The main character was Jonathan Joestar, a gentleman who is very kind and optimistic. I admired the fact that Jonathan, if was in a position of getting defeated, he never gave up and came back stronger. Something I really admire in a person.
Dio, who is the rival in this part, is such a horrible person. It didn’t take me long to develop a distaste for his character. One of the initial instances was that he not only kicked Jonathan’s dog, Danny, when he first arrived, he was also the one who killed him. TRASH, that is what Dio is!! Other than that, I couldn’t understand his motivation for hating Jonathan with such a passion. He even tried killing the man, Jonathan’s father, who took care of him through his adulthood. I have no sympathy at all for him.
I expect part 1 to be longer. I initially was in the mindset that each part has one entire season but that wasn’t the case for part 1 or part 2. So, part 1 is the first 9 episodes of season 1. No wonder it had a very quick pace. Part 2 started from episode 10 of season to episode 25. I just started that and I have already developed a liking for Joseph Joestar, who is Jonathan’s grandson.
I wonder how part 2 will turn out but I’ll be back with a update, if you would like to hear what I have to say! I thought it would be fun to document my Jojo journey! I might do this for other things too!
I’ll give part 1 a rating of 3/5. I’ve heard that other parts are better so I might change the rating as I watch the others. For now, I think this is good.
I also really like the opening song, I’ll link it below!! (^_^)
