"JoJo thread" , posted Sun 23 Jan 09:15:post reply

Even though I've been a fan of jojo ever since the PS game came out, I recently started to read the translated volumes and I'm really enjoying them. So far, I am in the Third series , Vol. 15 , where they are going to india.

So , do any of you guys know good Jojo sites?

Where are you getting the manga from? The only place I knew that used to have scans of it (that one hosted by highervoltage) seems mostly dead, and Viz or whoever hasn't started releasing en mass has it?

Bonus!

I didn't know there were translations out there. I've only read it in Japanese since the 5th chapter. I've read bits and pieces of 3 and 4 though, but 5 is my favorite. Jojo is pretty frustrating to translate sometimes, but I have to think "maybe Japanese people don't understand either".

It's because many of the most remarquable quotes of Jojo are not in japanese.

I used to got mine in Highervoltage and Ignition-One

Although IO had the best ones, their site seems pretty dead now (I think they were looking for translators, or something like that...) and they have finished part 1 and 2. On the other hand , the Highervoltage guys are fanediting "Gorgeous Irene", "JoJo5", "JoJo6", "Steel Ball Run" and "Under Execution, Under Jailbreak". They already finished "JoJo3" and "JoJo4", although I just don't know whether they still host the scans or not.

Ah, and you can get the first chapter of "Chronicles of the Bizarre and Eccentric" HERE

Oh, that reminds me Iggy, how did you like Under Execution Under Jailbreak?

It's great, of course.
It's short enough so that Araki doesn't loose focus, it was at a time when he was not yet senile, and the basic idea is good.
Well, mostly the story of the cat on the boat and the main "jailbreak" story.

Yeah, I -loved- the first two stories, but I didn't enjoy the Deadman ones too much.

Senility actually came pretty LATE for Araki. We have people like Watsuki and Togashi reaching senility at a young age.

Same here. The little girl was not great either beside the Rhan cameo.

I continue to say Togashi is better now than before. I think HxH is more enjoyable than Yuyu.
As for Araki, his senility is less intriguing then his tendency to look younger as times goes by.

Yeah, Dolce the cat was truly awesome!! The first story was great also, but, as I didn't get the remaining ones translated, I don't know what to think about them...

Yeah, this could be even worse, look at Kishimoto...

Maybe this "Hamon preserves youth" stuff isn't as crazy as it sounds...

There's something certain at least : even if he is a vampire, he's NOT sucking young virgin's blood.

Ah yeah...really. I come from the "Naruto hasn't been good in over a year, going on 2" school, not the "Naruto always sucked" school, but Kishimoto needs to get his crap together or start on that gang manga he keeps mentioning.

Takei had it pretty bad too, but it's not like he got senile, it's like his soul died.

Was "Under Execution Under Jailbreak" some type of Jojo side story? Because I always thought the guy in the picture ( of the jail cell with the cat in a bottle ) was always
Josuke.

No, the guy in the cell is just an assasin. The guy beside him is Rohan Kishibe (a JoJo 4 sideshow character) and the one merged with the floor is...



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
The phantom of Yoshikage Kira, the serial killer from JoJo 4.

RoKu's Bizarre Adventure???? Pero ke koo!!!

I hope Viz commits the error of a lifetime and all this JoJo editing business blows in their face !! That's what they deserve for being such a dumb company...

So he works for Viz now? No wonder he stopped releasing JoJo 3 scanlations...which is a shame, as IO was the best JoJo scanlation source, and the only way I had of reading JoJo in an understandable language...
