As a huge JoJo fan, I am excited to watch a new part to the series, day 1, for the first time. I binged JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (Parts 1-5) last year, back when I was relatively new to anime. It was also the first anime I watched in its original Japanese voice acting.
After finishing Part 5, I decided to go ahead and read the manga of the remaining parts that weren’t animated, Stone Ocean being one of them. It was pretty good, not my favorite part in the series (my favorites are 3, 5 and 7), but certainly not terrible. My favorite characters in Part 6 are F.F. (best girl), Weather Report, Narciso Anasui (because of one quote that probably won’t get animated due to copyright reasons) and Enrico Pucci. I also like Jolyne as a protagonist, though not as much as other JoJo’s like Joseph or Johnny (those two are top-tier). The Stand battles are rather hit-or-miss, with some of the biggest offenders being Highway to Hell or Dragon’s Dream (I won’t explain why for spoiler reasons).
Overall, I am so glad that this is finally getting animated. Fans have waited so long for this, and I’m quite excited too. Please let me know your thoughts down below. Will you be watching on Netflix, or will you watch it from “other” methods? Also, please make sure you don’t post spoilers for the uninitiated or those who wish to watch Stone Ocean spoiler-free. Thank you.
