The Seasonal Thread Posted posted:

Naples, 2001. Giorno Giovanna is a small-time crook with one big dreamóto become a "Gang-Star." No ordinary thief, Giorno has a connection to the remarkable Joestar bloodline, and possesses a Stand named Gold Experience. His dream starts to become reality when he meets Bruno Buccellati, a mobster from the gang Passione and a fellow Stand user himself. Realizing that they share similar ideals, and both disagree with the gang's harmful affairs, Giorno reveals his goal to Bruno: with Bruno's help, he will reform Passione by overthrowing the boss. As Giorno becomes a member of Passione, and is inducted into Bruno's squad, he discovers that it is no simple gang; its numbers are teeming with Stand users. Now confronted by other squads of differing loyalties and unpredictable caliber, their goal to change the gang from the inside out will be a tough one. Taking on these adversaries, Giorno attempts to rise through the ranks and inch closer to the boss, a man who is shrouded in mystery.

The boys are here, they're prettier than ever and their Stands are even more ludicrous. That's right, JoJo's back, baby! This time, we'll be following Giorno Giovanna and his merry band of criminals as they run up against the Neapolitan mafia, Passione, in their attempt to cleanse the organization of corruption.. No longer are we in a sleepy Japanese town, but instead taking a sightseeing tour around Italy in between bizarre encounters that must surely be the work of an enemy Stand. Part 5 is very standalone, even more so than Part 4, so previous JoJo knowledge isn't really required for this part other than knowing a couple names like "Dio Brando" or "Jotaro Kujo" so if you fell off the wagon or just joining the adventure, Part 5's a perfectly fine place to start (still, go back and catch up, also read the manga JoJo is good)

While an extremely popular arc in Japan, Part 5 is notorious for having an extremely poor English translation that made absolutely no sense and frequently got most things wrong. It only recently got a great translation thanks to Something Awful poster, Daxing Dan and the JoJo's Colored Adventure Group, so in the end, Part 5 kind of stands out as something a lot of English fans don't really remember well or have a low opinion of so the excitement for this to get animated is real. In general, this season will be a bit similar to Part 3: Stardust Crusaders, in that our cast will be travelling around with a mission in mind, and battling wildly dressed dudes with even wilder powers, but now, Araki has fully got his Stand Writing muscles warmed up so things get pretty bonkers, pretty fast

Part 5 will be start airing on October 5th on Crunchyroll and be going up weekly on Friday at around 1:00 - 1:30 PM EST and so far seems like it will run for thirty-nine episodes. A good bit of the staff has changed since Part 4, but so far the trailers have looked really promising and I'm really excited for this.

Just a general spoiler rule: This is the anime thread, so presumably, a good amount of the folks here haven't read this arc, so please don't post manga spoilers or allude to things coming up, and try to keep things either in the manga thread or behind spoiler tags. But before you post that spoiler behind a tag, do give a second thought if it's really necessary. We all know very well when new episodes of JoJo come out, so after that go hog wild with spoilers.

Has it been mentioned anywhere that it'll be 39 episodes or is it speculation based on how long part 5 is compared to part 4?

i don't see how they could really do any less or more than 39 episodes. with a minor bit of pacing optimized part 4 was able to comfortably fit that length and it's longer than part 5, and i sincerely doubt they've gotten a giant influx of cash to somehow stretch it out to 48 episodes

Part 5 has the best fights in the series, along with part 7, and seeing them animated should be fantastic - especially since that should clear up some of the confusion with the wackier ones. I could see this as being the best *animated* version just because of that (and judging by the quality of the first episode).

This is absolutely true, yeah. Even with the old, garbage translation, it was just a fantastic marathon of Best Fights so I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of 'em animated.

Yeah at first I wasn't out of my mind for this season like I was with Part 4, but looking over the chapter list, pretty much every week is going to have something I'm excited to see animated

AnacondaHL posted:

I've been seeing this sentiment a lot, and now I'm wondering if the slice of life pace of Part 4 along with a weekly drip feed is what caused this. So maybe going back and watching it all at once will help? Part 4 is laid back for sure, but it's got some of the best fights and characters for my money.

Part 5 is a bit more of a return to "form" as much as JoJo can have one, in that our characters are actively trying to do something other than "live a quiet life" and get impeded at every turn, but also carries a lot of the goofy bits of Part 4 and a bit in Part 3 where we get to see what absolute weirdos are main characters are.

Yeah I think characters/writing wise 4 was one of the best parts and 5 was a step down but it still delivers very well on having cool fights between dudes with weird powers.

There are a number of things about Part V I'd say are 'meh', but the premise of "It's like Goodfellas, but with Stands" owns.

The only part in part 4 that I wasn't too hot on was when Kira's dad started randomly making new stand users. That really felt like it was filler.

Granted there was some awesome poo poo like cheap trick and Enigma, but then we had the tower fight.

Even this owned cause Kira got to fight a cat that turned into a plant and almost die of an embolism
