Way back in high school, probably 2006, a guy I’d met at the local anime store let me borrow a copy of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (among other box sets, he was very eager to date, and I do suppose that is the proverbial mating call of nerds), before it was licensed here in America, and I think I watched the whole thing in one sitting. I remember being initially confused, as I believe the story goes that the first few episodes were restored/remastered from the original run, while the rest looked pre-remaster, so at first my feeble pubescent mind was confused about the swap in quality, but I didn’t care, it was awesome. The only problem was that I knew practically nobody else who had even heard of this series, and combined with its strange name, I felt pretty silly asking everyone I knew into anime for the next few years if they had ever heard of it, to no avail.
Fast forward to now, and it’s finally here, and it’s a hit. Thank God.
So here’s my fan take inspired by the above, now that everyone knows what I’m talking about and I can rest assured I wasn’t having an unbelievably well choreographed fever dream.
P.S. I know I don’t often make new Home posts, but I do often update my comics and illustrations pages
