There are still like nine eight nine chapters of Green Day and Oasis left, I suspect they'll break it into three and the super MUDA will be at the end of the next episode.

Also I realize a lot of the reason it's so memorable is just the panel composition but I was a little underwhelmed by how they adapted this part:

TBH this I feel a lot of part 5 (and latter part 4) has really failed as, like, an adaption.

A lot of what makes Jojo so good is how it plays with panel layouts, perspectives, and how it uses exposition as a tool to heighten the tension. Often these techniques arn't as effective in an animated format, and so the series suffers from being as literally translated as it is.

i really can't disagree with this less

things like the music, colors and voice acting have increased this series exponentially for me. i agree that some things certainly got lost in translation, but all that doesn't matter to me when we get things like the torture dance, or kira's VA preformance or narancia's crying

The torture dance was very good, but I feel like that's an exception that proves my point. For one, in the manga it's a set of panels all shown from the same perspective that's designed to show choreography, so it's uniquely suited to being adapted into animation. For another, the anmation expanded upon the manga panels significantly, that is, they went farther in adapting it. It shows that the anime can be quite good when they actually take liberties with the material, so what a shame they don't do that more often!

Compare that with the Thankful Dead episodes. Any given scene from them looks like a direct copy from a manga panel, only in place of the dynamic panel layout they have speed lines and graphical effects -- and while the graphical effects can be great, they're not so great that they make up for the fact that there basically isn't any animation.

This ties into your praise for the VA's and performances and such. You're correct that they're great, but that doesn't make it a good anime, it makes it a good audio drama.

Yeah, Grateful Dead(and Notorious) is where I feel what you're saying the hardest. Bruno's bits were mostly good, but the scene he unzips himself really let me down. They even left out the sfx!

Otoh, I loved Giorno and Mista's pistol pose. The editing coulda been snappier, maybe, but the camerawork and hold on the pose for a tic was rad, I literally cheered.

I do see your point, but I also think of things like the White Album fight, Metallica or Highway Star, where they flex their sakuga muscles more. Outside of that, they've had great shots with Doppio, I've loved how they've done his transformations, and Spice Girl's debut, there's this constant pink filter on everything that I like a lot.

I guess for me, I love the content of JoJo so much, that I just don't mind or don't care. There's been a lot of shots where characters don't have eyes in medium shots, or look really rough in the background, but really this could be One Punch Man Season 2 levels of rushed and I'd still tune in happily every week to finally see something I've wanted to see animated. The fact that we get something way better, on top of fantastic performances and original music makes this one of my favorite adaptations ever probably. It's not that I think it's wrong to want things to be better, I'm just stoked to see JoJo at all

I will say that I see your point more after watching today's episode lol

It felt a little disjointed and even having read I was a little unsure of what was happening. Bruno and Secco's first exchange felt sloppy and there's a def moment where Mista bends down to get a better shot of Secco where he should've gotten molded. I didn't remember the dialogue between Narancia and Trish and thought that was weird, but that's not really the anime's fault

The primary escalation throughout Jojo's is in the levels and frequency of self mutilation. Cutting off one's hand is never a bad idea.

Ask me about the hate crime perpetrated against a gay black man, and how it was a real hate crime and totally not fabricated. I am well acquainted with the facts of this actual hate crime which actually took place in actuality.

then there is jolyne, whose entire power is self mutilation.
