Pawsome Review: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is an anime/manga created by Hirohiko Araki, following the Joestar family line and their fight against evil. The show is separated into volumes, each with a different protagonist and cast of characters than the last. The volumes are ordered as follows:

 

Part 1: Phantom Blood

Part 2: Battle Tendency

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders

Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable

Part 5: Golden Wind

Part 6: Stone Ocean

Part 7: Steel Ball Run

Part 8: JoJolion

 

Only the volumes up to Golden Wind have been animated. The rest are manga-only. 

One of JoJo’s greatest appeals is the supernatural elements. The first two parts revolve around an energy stored in powerful people called Hamon. The other parts involve stands, spirits who’s traits and strengths are determined by a person’s personality. The series has a variety of great villains, like Dio Brando and the Pillar Men. You begin to really enjoy the characters as you progress through the story, too. Lastly, the show provides a multitude of intense twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of your seat, anticipating what event will take place next.

The only complaint I have is that parts 1 and 2 don’t explain the story very well, and that makes it easier to lose interest in the earlier parts of the series. But, the more you get into the show, the more you will understand and enjoy it. I believe this is an anime/manga you should definitely check out.
