Storyline

Chronicles the struggles of the cursed Joestar bloodline against the forces of evil. Beginning in 1880, Part I follows Jonathan Joestar as he matures with and eventually combats his adoptive brother, the cunning, merciless Dio Brando. Set in 1938, Part II follows the misadventures of Joseph Joestar, grandson of Jonathan, as he masters the Ripple in order to combat hostile, ancient super-beings named the Pillar Men; creators of the Stone Mask. Part III follows Jotaro Kujo and his group as they journey from Tokyo to Cairo to save his mother's life by defeating his family's resurrected archenemy, Dio. In Part IV, an Arrow manifesting latent Stand abilities travels throughout Morioh, Japan in 1999; as high-schooler Josuke Higashikata (illegitimate son of Joseph) and friends seek out the culprit of a series of decade-long homicides. Set in 2001, Part V follows Giorno Giovanna, son of Dio, and his ambition to rise within the Neapolitan mafia by subverting its most powerful gang: Passione.

Ridiculously addictive
13 July 2019 | by maddie_babySee all my reviews

An over the top and absurd story with very likable characters and very hate-able villains. on top of that it has a beautiful, colorful and very unique art-style paired with its incredible score. it has everything, action, comedy, drama, tension and it all fits together very well. there are times when just nothing makes sense but you happily go along with it because that's just how fun the story is. honestly its not a super complex anime that takes itself serious and that's what makes it great, i simply love JoJo's adventure and the bizarre mess it is. (do not watch the dub)
