The raw for Jojolion 18 is here! Now what insanity does Araki have in store for us at the start of the new year?

Just bumping to mention that the translation for Jojolion 18 is out now! For the most part, it matches the spoiler summary I posted above. And as I said, I have a feeling that the old pet shop owner guy is a stand user (IMO, the biggest giveaway was how he was chuckling to himself on the last page after Joushu's recording was somehow altered). I'm still looking forward to seeing Josuke in school more, though.



Also, there won't be a chapter this month so we've gotta wait until March for the next one. But on the plus side at least there's the anime to tide us over while we wait!

I think the old guy is the stand user too, but that somehow seems too obvious... Maybe it's his dog

It sucks there won't be a chapter next month, but as you said, at least we have the anime now. Besides, we used to have to wait a lot longer to get our dose of Jojo not too long ago, so one month is nothing.

Can stands only be seen by stand users?

Pretty much. It's one of the reasons why Stand Users, particularly unscrupulous ones, are very dangerous.

Given the fact that Jojo power levels begin and end with GER (kind of how Gundam power levels begin and end with Turn A), we honestly don't know. Its power is to "Negate all actions". Let that sink in for a bit.

Even when we take the literal definition of that, it's still pretty broken as far as stand powers go.

Actually, there ARE some exceptions, though the only ones that come to my mind now are from part 4. I'm pretty sure Surface (that puppet stand that became a clone of Earth-1 Josuke) was one that was visible to normal folks. I'm also certain Stray Cay was visible to everyone, as well (though I guess maybe non-stand users can't see the air bullets he shoots out).....



Edit: Oh yeah, here's something interesting:

Personally, I find it more amusing that Polpo is there, too (who seems to have considerably shrunk in size, at that). Anyway, I guess this was the reason why Araki took this month off for Jojolion. But one more thing I find funny about this comic:

Well the spinoff seems to be an alternate continuity so I suppose its okay for the characters to be different from how we remember them. Still, it is a rather morbid coincidence that all the characters
Spoiler for part 5 and part 6:
or was it intentional on Araki's part?

The artwork for this one shot is very good and the characters' outfits are pretty nice.

In case anyone missed it, the translation for JJL 19 is out.



Yeah, so like I said in the spoiler, the stand user most definitely has to be that tree!

I don't know how to convey this well, but I'll try.


I don't like how Josuke is being manipulated, again. He's being led around like a dog on a leash () and I just feel that it's not making the opponent more threatening, but more annoying, and the hero look like a chump. When the opponent is dealt with, I'll be glad not because Josuke overcame a challenge but because the annoying enemy will most likely be pushed aside for the next opponent and not appear for a while.


I'm sorry if it sounds too negative, but I just had to get that off my chest.

^Well, we're not very far in the story yet, so it kinda makes sense that the enemies aren't very threatening so far, IMO. Well, I know that the first enemy in the original part 4 was a vicious serial killer and all, but still.



But anyway! This month's raw of Jojolion is out!

The scanlation is out too. Joushuu's power reminds me of Sticky Fingers. Except with screws instead of zippers. I hope this fight will end soon because I'm growing a little bored of it.

While powers may repeat, the look and use of them will almost always be unique to me. I hope Joushuu will say to a guy, "Hey man, don't lose your head over this."

Speaking of similar powers, the tree's stand ability reminds me a lot of Harvest from part 4. In fact, both powers are even used to gain money! Though I also kinda wonder if awakening its stand has made the tree become self-aware.....
