I'm sorry that I haven't been posting around here lately. Even though I'm the one who made this topic, I, ironically, haven't had much to say. Or rather, I haven't had much that I've wanted to say. As of late, all of the work that I've been doing just, well, doesn't seem to be worth anything. I've lost all of the drive and vigor I might have had a few months back. I really have no idea what I'm going to do in the upcoming months, and especially after May. I don't really have direction, much less a goal. And being lazy certainly doesn't help that.
Everything seems to move faster and faster, and time just seems to keep on ticking.
Yes, you should watch JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and for the following reasons:
- It simply revels in its own weirdness. In what other series are you going to find a ridiculously buff high school student commanding a giant purple man to punch cadaver-controlling fog? Or a British guy fighting the equivalent of the Aztec Gods of Fitness with nothing but his magical light fists over a rock? Nowhere. And JJBA takes pride in the fact that it, and it alone, portrays such strange situations.
- The story spans generations and locations. JJBA isn't about just one JoJo, but a family of them. There are two British JoJos, one from the 19th century and one from the WWII era; a half-Japanese JoJo from the 80's who travels the world to save his mom; another half-Japanese JoJo in 1999 who spends the whole Part in his small Japanese hometown; an Italian JoJo from 2001 who fights the Mafia; and many more.
- It's visually stunning. Lots of love has been put into the anime adaptation, and it shows. The colors are vibrant, the animation is oh-so-fluid, the characters are expressive... the list goes on.
- It's just one of those guilty-pleasure animes.
Also, Crunchyroll may be good for some people. Personally, I prefer KissAnime, because all of it's free.
A guilty pleasure? Please tell me what you're watching, cause JoJo really isn't something to be ashamed for enjoying.
