Jojo's Bizarre Adventure review

Jojo's bizarre adventure follows to story of the Joestar family and their exploits, may it be stopping evil doers from destroying the world to fighting the vampire being that haunts them. The first series which we will focus on (separate review coming for stardust crusaders) tells the story of Jonathan Joestar and then Joseph Joestar. We first join Jonathan as he is trying to live as a true English gentleman and stop his new adopted brother from destroying everything he cares about with the mysterious power of the stone mask.

Story matches the rest of the show, it is ridiculous and completely over the top. Let me explain, Jojo is a super GAR anime. Everything is super manly and super over the top to the point that it is making fun of itself. Even the simplest of actions must be performed with maximum amount of sass and flair.
The story isn't anything to write home about, it is fun but nothing ground braking or even super exciting but it gets the job done.
Animation is very stylized and very pretty, everything looks smooth and beautiful. They put some real thought on how to capture the feel of the manga. It is not all good though, it suffers from the black censor bar of death and sometimes things when things change color suddenly you can be quite confused for a second or two.
Music is a bit of a mixed bag, I love the openings of the series but the background music is a bit of hit and miss, sometimes there are really cool tracks but most of the time I can't even remember what they sounded like.

Now for the important question, did i enjoy it? Short answer; Hell yeah. All the over the top action with the larger than life characters, with the weird plot points makes a mess that is incredible fun. Now let me warn you, this is not for everyone. Probably you will either hate it or love it.

Verdict - 8/10 Great fun but definitely not for everyone. The show starts a bit slow so watch a few episode and see for yourself. It is worth the try as this could be your next favorite or your next big hate.
