Just awesomeness.

Seems good so far. I hope they can keep the quality up for the rest of the series.
 
Are they just covering Phantom Blood, or other parts too? I assume they'll do at least part 2 as well? 
Hopefully anyway, since I've only read Part 1.

It was an excelent start, greatly exceded my expectation.

I sure hope they'll adapt battle tendency too, this series has 26 planned episodes, and in the first one they covered 5 chapters of 47 chapters manga, so it seems this is gonna be fairly fast paced. My prediction will be 12 ep. for Phantom Blood and 14 for Battle Tendency.

I loved it. Dio's voice is great. The animation is smooth and respects the weirdness of the manga. The ending is so freaking catchy that I cannot get it out of my head...

I rather enjoyed the first episode. At the rate it's going Part 1 will be done by like episode 6 lol.

I need to try this anime. With all the Moe anime and other new anime shows, this show's art style is unique when it's all old school.

This week episode introduce us the OP, while i'm getting accustomed to the 3D CG, the direction, character design closer to the manga and the epic song make up for it.

As for the episode, we got to see how the realtionship between Dio and Jojo is progressing after the time skip. All in all was a good episode, with steady pacing. The first volume is done adapting, now onto the Humanity Rejection that everyone is waiting for! :)

@shels: I didn't like the 3D when I first saw it, it's growing on me a little now though. What do you think of the ending theme? I thought the transition between the final scene to the ending song was really great!
 
@takashichea: Have you given it a look yet? I've read a bit further in the manga, and it still keeps its crazy style!

Yeah the Ending is awesome and the moment when the first chords are played i thought "is this over already?" but then we got the prologue acoustic part of the song, to finish off the episode in this awesome tone with Dio and Jojo meeting the house. Also loved that they changed the ED presentation a bit too, maybe they'll change it every other episode to match the developments. This said i really think they couldn't choose a better song for the ending.

Episode 3 was amazing, manly and inspiring. I feel like I could benchpress a road roller with no effort. This is not getting enough love on this site and that is disappointing (it's getting a TON on MAL).

Man, this 3rd episode is so fucking Epic, i knew they would be making something jawdroping for this fight scene but it blew me away all the same, it was almost perfect. Now let's get some Zeppeli and more Speedwagon reaction faces and off time interferences :P

@shels:

Thank you! I put your recommendation for Jojo's Bizarre Adventures.

Post by rubberluffy (582 posts) See mini bio Level 16

Part 1/Phantom Blood is already almost over and should be done by episode 8 or 9, I'm guessing. Can't wait. Part 2 is leagues better.

is this being stream by any website, such as Crunchyroll or Funimation?

Also, I CANNOT wait for Stardust Crusaders. Wait, was that even planned? Shit gets insane with Stands

@buhssuht:

It's fansubs only for now, nobody has even mentioned picking it up for legit streaming. Supposedly the JP blurays will include english subtitles but as far as I've seen those are expensive as all hell even before importing. Also, the series is only planned for Parts 1 and 2, but the opening animation features a countdown of the mains from parts 6 to 1, so the plan is probably to keep going but it'll be dependant on sales.

Post by shels (217 posts) See mini bio Level 19

It would be great if at least 6 parts were animated but for the moment i'm more than happy with just the 2. Phantom Blood despite the animation quality, has been such a fun ride, can't wait for the most awesome JoJo of all to be animated.

Post by Kuro_San (1,338 posts) See mini bio Level 11

I hoping tht every part is as badass as the first part... Johnathan is so badass

Post by Kurohige (3,702 posts) See mini bio Level 19

Pure awesomeness, faithful to the manga as well. I can't wait to see how the Stands look later on, I do hope they have another animation team take of of the later parts only because the current style wouldn't fit parts 3 and up ( I like the part 4 commercial, that art was great even for a simple promo like that.) But I can't wait to see Kars and the other Pillar men in action soon :D
