Thread: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part II: Do the Dio Walk!

    I don't know, the first parts looked pretty awful in those colors, kinda amateurish. But starting from Vento Aureo it became much better - Stone Ocean specifically looks amazing colored.

    Yeah I agree. I started reading the colored version only with Stardust Crusaders. Though Stone Ocean is the only part with 100% of the colored chapters translated.
    So I got to read the original chapters from time to time.

    I read Bites the Dust in color, and have been reading Vento in color as well. So far I've been loving it, but that's not to say I dislike the original art. I can't speak for the earlier parts, but the color looks well done and definitely feels true to the JoJo style. The insane use of color was one of my favorite parts about the new anime. Also, the translations seemed good. No basic errors, and all the plot/battle elements make sense and are easy to understand.

    For me personally reading a lot of manga on a monitor screen via the internet can strain my eyes after a while. This sucks for series that aren't available physically, and are super long. Like JoJo.

    Honestly though reading in color really eases the strain and makes long marathon sessions much more enjoyable. I'd recommend them for any newcomers to the series.

    I am the kind of person who wants the first experience to always be free from any outside interference.
    The first time I am reading a book I want to make sure I didn't got any review about it, the first time I eat a food I want it to be exactly as it is usually served without adding any extra element on my own, so I would NEVER be able to read a manga for the first time using a colored version when it was originally black and white. I would feel like my first experience was tainted and I would never have the chance to experience the first contact with the story as the writer intended to.

    I don't mind reading the alternate version later, I even bought some colored volumes from other titles, but I would never be able to advise a firstcomer to go to the colored version :|

    Yeah I can see that. It all comes down to preference.

    I suppose the coloured version is easier to read be cause Araki draws a panel so complicated, (weird movements everywhere, even without bizarre superpowers.), and colour coding makes it immediatel easier to distingusih stuff, but I'd much rather have better scans or a print release.

    Yikes! Steel Ball Run colored is gross. That's weird coming after Stone Ocean.

    Every chapter of Jojolion confuses me and makes me question whether there's any point to anything that happens in the manga. It's just... so weird and aimless and it's just confusing :/

    Part 4 was equally aimless slice of life till Kira showed up. At least this part has an underlying mystery driving the plot.

    Pretty much. There's a bit more to it but it goes into spoiler territory and I myself don't have time to go into specifics.

    Oh boy. This is getting complicated.
    At least Steel Ball Run seems awesome so far, even as a standalone.

    I had the same gripe with part 4 tbh. But the characters in part 4 were more likeable than the jojolion ones, and it was a little easier to understand what the hell was going on. Jojolion just throws stuff at you and none of it makes any sense.

    It's...not really a standalone.

    I mean you call it that but...

    Did you read Stone Ocean yet ?

    Yeah the story ends with the universe starting a new cycle. Is that the origin of Steel Ball Run ?

    Spoiler:
    It's partly a result of it, but whether it's the same universe that we see with Irene is up for debate, and as you go through SBR and Jojolion you'll see why people don't really think it's the same universe

    Hm..I'm already getting headache with the fights. The story was pretty simple so far. I think I will try not to look too much into it and just enjoy the jojoness.

    Maybe yes, maybe not.
    Spoiler:
    We still don't know if SBR takes place in the "new universe" created by Pucci. If it does, then it is not an alternate storyline, it just takes place many many many years after Stone Ocean - since the new universe actually is the future of the old one and not an alternate dimension.

    Don't front. You know that Gyro is awesome lol

    But yeah just take it in stride. For me, SBR was okay up until ~a third of the way through the story, especially with more involvement from the antagonist, in which it really becomes super duper
