When you say Part 3 do you mean the third arc or the third anime which is the fourth arc?

I'm on diamond is unbreakable at the moment.

With Jojo, Part _ generally refers to the arcs. Parts after 2 are just so long that they needed multiple seasons of anime to cover them, whereas parts 1 and 2 were short enough to fit into one season together.

I'm on Stardust Crusaders. I started with Diamond is Unbreakable, then I watched part 2 Battle Tendecy. Still haven't watched Part 1

I started watching them all in order. I'm part way through Diamond is Unbreakable now.

I've only just seen Joeseph in this incarnation. It's kind of sad to see him as an old geezer :fluttersmith:

Just recently caught up on My Hero Academia and it's a really fun and polished superhero shonen!

Been meaning to start up the second season of Blood Blockade Battlefront as well

My Hero Academia would be freaking perfect for me if it had better handling of its female characters and if Mineta was eradicated from all planes of existence.

Mineta is the absolute worst thing for sure, and there are definite problems with the female character writing. Not as egregious as some shonen, but definitely a lot of room for improvement.

I honestly don't know why mineta was even created as a character in the first place. He serves no functional purpose to the story nor development.

If only he was the funny kind of shitty, like Araki's self-insert in JoJo, but nope. Mineta just sucks, is hecking creepy and belongs nowhere. The prevalence of the "anime pervert" trope really needs to stop.

Speaking of Rohan, David Productions put out an OVA that covers the 5th story of a short comic series about him, Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan:



Here's what we're probably looking forward to when they're going to adapt Part 7 and Part 8!
Can Rohan stop being a dirtbag and be well mannered in a village of millionaires that utterly despises rude people? I don't see it going well... :smirk:

(Also wtf Crunchyroll why are you blocking all these animes in my region? :twonk: )

Another anime I watched recently...ish was Little Witch Academia. It was of course cute and Diana was my fav. Kind of weird to see the jerk mayor from the second short be a sorta good guy now.

LWA is super cute. Sucy is my favourite, although I relate to Amanda the most. Brooms are just motorbikes that can fly.

Can I get some viewing suggestions?
I've been dying for something new to watch lately.
Preferably something cute or funny. Though I enjoy fantasy, action and adventure stuff too.

Puella Magica Madoka is a cute anime about magical girls who get to make their wishes come true! It even has a cute bunny cat :3

Sometimes I think Battle Tendency was the peak.

Another thing I feel is that Crusade was such an epic with a massive finish, Diamond feels like it's more of a breather than a series in it's own right. Like how in Steven Universe they have HUGE SPACE DRAMA and then spend the next 5 episodes or so hanging about in beach city doing mundane stuff with ordinary people. It's like that but a whole series.

I like that actually. It's a change of pace, but the new story arcs always do change everything. It's more mundane but it has its charm because of that.

I wish Part 5, 6 and 7 were already animated. Part 6 and 7 are peak JoJo imo.

If you're coming in from the manga I wonder if your evaluation of part 4 is flavoured by the "Duwang" quality print of the 4th part :lol:

Ok, maybe Part 4 is not my least favorite part, but it certainly bottom tier for me, and has nothing to do with Duwang.

As much as I like Kira as a villain (he's top tier in the JoJoverse), most of the story was pedestrian, full of filler and whatnot -- Part 4 felt bloated.

Honestly I'm not done with part 3 but it's kind a dragging.

Part 4 is my favorite so far, but Joseph in Part 2 is my fav Jojo

Yeah part 4 is very mundane. I like how it shows the ordinary side of Morioh but I can see how it might be boring to others.

The good thing is that the JoJos from Part 5 and 6 are very easy to tell apart, one is a blond italian guy called Giorno, and the other is an american girl called Jolyne (it all makes sense in context)

Part 3 has high highs but the enemy stand of the week format gets kind of tired after a while and the stands aren't yet as wild as they get later, particularly the heroes'. I feel like part 4 is where Stands start to find their stride and the ways they can be used and the sorts of stories Araki can tell with them really starts expanding, which is what happened with the Ripple in part 2, but where the Ripple really got pushed to its limits in Battle Tendency there is no ceiling on weirdness with Stands.

It's one of the reasons why Jolyne is my favorite JoJo. She got relatively the crappiest stand of all JoJos and has to rely on being a scrappy fighter like young Joseph in Part 2 to make the most of it.
