Considering that his dad would be 48 years old if not killed, early twenty sounds plausible

Yeah, 17 sounds about right since he is about mid sixties in Part 3.

And the flashback about plane hijacking when Joseph look younger was just 3 year before that, its not possible if he in early 20 n the flashback he look 12-13.

Altho its not less harder to believe he grown into 2 meter man in 3 year either

Btw regardless how they look, JoJo always around 15-17 of ages when they became main protagonist.

I thought only the very recent JoJo that older than that.

It is probably in his pocket. Seriously, you can't tell a tiny Thompson from body size from a Warhammer 40K aniki.

I'm pretty sure that he was hiding it inside the back of his jacket. Do take note that this seems to be much more believable in the manga, since at that point Araki still didn't have his body proportions down pat.

I was more amazed how he specifically walked around so he'd be shooting it into the shop. What the hell.

You'll see that there's a lot of method to Joseph's madness, including machinegunning Straights INTO the bar. It's what makes him such a joy to read, and hopefully a lot of that slyness translates well to this.

Isn't his name Straits, a music group.

Joseph's bad behavior reminds me about young Speedwagon. Speedwagon grew up in a bad neighborhood. He might knew Dio as an old neighbor. He was terrible person as Dio, but he disliked Dio. As a bad guy, he valued the comradeship. Even Jonathan punched him, he helped Jonathan out of respect. Joseph resembled Speedwagon in that manner. That's why he decides to help a guy who stole his wallet.

The first episode is called "Fighting Waves". Which mean more conflicts are coming to Joseph as waves.

Yeah, I figure. It's just been a while since I read Battle Tendency, and this is the fight from it I remember the least.

Joseph is pretty much the walking in-universe embodiment of the "crazy prepared" trope.

As my friend messaged me in YM:

"Dude, He doesn't waste time.
I KNOW YOU'RE STRAITS

A new chapter opens.
Jojo no longer amongst the living..
A new stone mask found.
Joseph Joesar emerges.
Looks like he's anything but ordinary.
He'll have the same problem as his father...
Straits kills Speedwagon and goes vampire.
Let the games begin!

If he's 17 and Jojo's father supposedly died during the war that would mean that this Jojo's grandfather isn't the previous Jojo.

Not really anime, but here an interesting look at the evolution of Araki's artwork.
