In 1868, Dario Brando saves the life of an English nobleman, George Joestar. By taking in Dario’s son Dio when the boy becomes fatherless, George hopes to repay the debt he owes to his savior. However Dio, unsatisfied with his station in life, aspires to seize the Joestar house for his own. Wielding an Aztec stone mask with supernatural properties, he sets out to destroy George and his son, Jonathan “JoJo” Joestar, and triggers a chain of events that will continue to echo through the years to come.

Half a century later, in New York City, Jonathan’s grandson Joseph Joestar discovers the legacy his grandfather left for him. When an archeological dig unearths the truth behind the stone mask, he realizes that he is the only one who can defeat the Pillar Men, mystical beings of immeasurable power who inadvertently began everything.

Adapted from the first two arcs of Hirohiko Araki’s outlandish manga series, JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken follows the many thrilling expeditions of JoJo and his descendants. Whether it’s facing off with the evil Dio, or combatting the sinister Pillar Men, there’s always plenty of bizarre adventures in store. [Written by MAL Rewrite]



So I’ve started watching Jojo when it first came out in 2012 then I stopped for some reasons and I’ve recently got back on track. The first season of Jojo has two arcs Jonathan Joster and Joseph Joster. Jonathan was too much of an idealist. I’m sure Dio had fun teasing him. The most interesting fight in his arc was when he fought with Zeppeli. The Hamon ability was really cool. Then one thing led to the other and suddenly we’re in arc 2.

The main character in the second arc was Joseph Joster. He’s Jonathan’s grandson. The villains in this arc were very interesting. Also the second main character Caeser who’s Zeppeli’s grandson was very interesting. My favorite villain was Santana. The fight between Santana and Joseph was one of the most interesting fights in the series. I also really liked Kars he was the strongest villain in the series.

I really liked the art style of Jojo as well as the music of the anime. The show keeps getting more and more interesting. Some characters were underrated unfortunately but all and all the anime is really great.

Overall Rate: 8/10
