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
FUCK YOU
TOOOWMMMYYY GAAAWN"

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.

Joseph was born on September 27 1920, so he is currently 18, at bit younger than Jonathan in Phantom blood.

In JoJo, it's wise not to assume characters died unless they're shown as a bloody stain on the ground, or its closest equivalent.

That wasn't very subtle just so you know

This was quite possibly the best anime episode I've watched all year. No wonder everyone's been saying that Battle Tendency has the best JoJo! That ending to the ep had me laughing so hard. Joseph's actor is really hamming it up, but that's the beauty of the series. If it's not hammy, the actors are doing it wrong.

I'm sad that Jonathon isn't still alive, because wow, I think he'd have a few things to say to his ungentlemanly grandson.

Wasn't Erina great? I hope she doesn't get murdered in this series. I adored her in that dinner scene.

I hope Speedwagon is secretly alive and is just undercover so that he can help Joseph out somehow. By...uh...I don't know. Speedwagon never was very useful in Phantom Blood. Maybe he'll show up dramatically and fanboy to help Joseph out.

It's there alright, when Joseph talks to the taxi driver.

Boy I can't wait for next episode.

"GERMAN SCIENCE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD~!"

Also, will the OP change? At least to the second part of the whole song (cause I feel the lyric's kinda appropriate for this particular part).
