However Dio, unsatisfied with his station in life, aspires to seize the Joestar house for his own. Wielding an Aztec stone mask with supernatural properties, he sets out to destroy George and his son, Jonathan "JoJo" Joestar, and triggers a chain of events that will continue to echo through the years to come.

Half a century later, in New York City, Jonathan's grandson Joseph Joestar discovers the legacy his grandfather left for him. When an archeological dig unearths the truth behind the stone mask, he realizes that he is the only one who can defeat the Pillar Men, mystical beings of immeasurable power who inadvertently began everything.

Adapted from the first two arcs of Hirohiko Araki's outlandish manga series, JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken follows the many thrilling expeditions of JoJo and his descendants. Whether it's facing off with the evil Dio, or combatting the sinister Pillar Men, there's always plenty of bizarre adventures in store.

Thank you !!

Alright, Ive seen Jojo Bizarre´s adventure 1,2 and now finished up 3.

Spoiler
I watched Jojo Battletendency and Jojo Stardust Crusaders a while back and really enjoyed the plot.
There was a real villain where it all resolved around and the lead up to the big fights where really awesome.
The concept of the joestar family was confusing before you watch the series. I always thought it was a shite show. Until I watched it. A group of friends- and later- standusers against the vampire -and later- standuser DIO.

I liked that everything was connected with each other. Just like One Piece, that magical thread that connects most -if not- all events.

After the two seasons, I postponed starting with 3, I wanted something new to watch. Up until this month.
It was time to watch season 3: Diamond is unbreakable.

It had a quick introduction with Jotaro! He was back, and we met his cousin (i think? xD) Josuke, And it became clear he was the new main character.
I was hoping that Jotaro would get his moments to shine, just like the previous season. Star Platinum is kickass after all.
I even hoped we could see Polnareff , sadly that wasn't the case. (I really liked Stardust Crusaders!)

I can be really short...
Well this season was a little bit of a miss I think, there was a connection to DIO. With the bow and arrow. But that was it.
There was a connection with that magical thread but it felt lackluster in my eyes.

There wasn't a clear main villain. This was simply Jotaro who wants the bow back, he succeeds early on in the serie. And then there was a 2nd one who makes new stand users.
Josuke and his friends vs the new stand users up until the ''main villain'' Kira who sucked.
He just had a decent ability but he was nowhere on the level of DIO.

I still enjoyed it, and mostly because of the way Josuke befriends all people (Just like Luffy). I like those kinds of stuff.
The main group gets bigger and everyone gets their seperate airtime and is of use in battles.
And also this time, just like previous seasons, some characters gets killed off. Just not a lot of big characters.
Not counting the Bites the Dust moments ofcourse.

Overall a decent season, but compared to the first 2, a little bit less enjoyable.
Great stories for some new abilities and stuff. But the main thing about Kira wasnt really fun.

After the killing of Okayasu's brother they could of gone into another direction, Josuke's group against a group of standusers (This was mentioned). But never really came back after they defeated that electrical stand user.
After that is was the murder who hides in the city.

A good watch, but a little bit less fun than the first two season.

YAAAY I MADE A REVIEW! :pikajoy:


All Hail Brooke.

@SunnySapphire there are multiple seasons of Jojo so this needs to include all of them per the template (the currently airing one is the one that has a multiple season example).
