Twelve Days of Anime – Old Man Jojo
December 17, 2014 Leave a comment
I am not the biggest fan of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures, while I enjoy the manga; there was something about the anime that just didn’t quite click with me, regardless of how much fun it could be to watch. But then Stardust Crusaders came along with what has to be one of the most boring characters I’ve seen in anime in a while. Many of the elements introuduced in Stardust Crusaders such as Stands helped to add more depth to the characters and story. But, Joutaro helped to spoil some of that fun – he is a boring character who spends more time sulking than doing anything particularly useful.
Joseph Joestar on the other hand stole the show from Joutaro, adding a mix of the absurd and ridiculous to the fairly normal, if a little silly Jojo antics. Without Joseph I wouldn’t have got as far as I did with Stardust Crusaders, he is the true Jojo star and Joutaro should’ve been kept in prison for the whole series.
