The music was kinda underwhelming to me compared to the first 2 arcs. I like Yuugo Kanno in general so I'm not sure at this point whether it's his compositions or the volume they play at...

Any idea how long this episode will be? Good to see Jojo return and great start. Jotaro is such a bad ass character. Never read the manga but I starting to like Jotaru. Calling his own mom b!tch. LOL!

We have no idea since they haven't mentioned anything about an episode count, expect 26 and hope for 39....

After seeing the first episode... yes, the over-the-top madness is back. Definitely can't wait for the next episode.

The only problem is that I find Dio to be more annoying than truly powerful/evil, especially after watching Battle Tendency

How does it compare to the original OVA version?

I see what you did there.

I was thinking about watching the OVAs at one point. It's a good thing I waited for this.

As being JoJo adaptation it's x1000000 times better than OVA. It's too early to judge about animation, but it seems much better as well. But I prefer Jotaro's voice from OVA.

Daisuke Ono is certainly the weakest seiyuu choice in the lineup here.

I can't believe how good the Stands look in motion, it's like all of my dreams come true. Now to hope they can keep it up the entire series.

I'm praying the ending is still "Roundabout" .

I really liked the kinda thematic direction the premiere had, from the opening and introduction to Jotaro to the ending with Dio. I thought the animation was really great, very evident of the likely much higher budget David Productions has compared to Parts 1 and 2, and the traditional Jojo flair and the animation for the Stands were quite nice .

Our new Jojo for part 3, Jotaro Kujo, certainly has shades of the Joestar honor in him, though with a bit of an attitude and quite a mouth. I really have to wonder how his relationship with his mother changed from what was shown in the flashbacks to how abrasive he is to her in the present .

It was a little shocking to see how much Jotaro resembled Jonathan in his youth, I think even more than Joseph. Maybe that resemblance will be what leads to Dio singling him out of all of Jonathan's remaining descendants ?

So we're moving away from manipulating ripples to psychic powers that manifest humanoid guardian spirits? Okay, sure .

Joseph is still Joseph. I'm going to miss Sugita but Unshou Ishizuka is a pretty awesome Old Joseph so it all works out .

And Holly is certainly her parents' child .

Poor Jonathan though... thank goodness Erina passed away before she could know about this .

This is going to be the last time you see ripple in action, Joseph is the last person who can use it atm. It's ok though, you got Stands for days after this and every one of them is going to get better and beter.

The style of the song is close to those from the 1990s and DEM VISUALS

As expected, great episode. Opening is nice and full of references as well.

On a side note, after watching the episode I decided to watch OVA's fight with Kakyoin for comparision. It's... kinda confusing. While new series looks much better in terms of action and music, I found certain elements to better in OVA. For example, OVA's version of Jotaro's speech about evil is much more impressive.

Also, I wonder how long will it last? Right now, it's kinda obvious that it's gonna be be way more than 24 epiodes, so either we will have 48 episodes, or JoJo became a long-running series.

Even though I knew it was coming, that pen scene still made me cringe.
