    Yeah that must've been quite a ride

    I remember from fragmented bits I'd read about the series, I had some odd preconceived notions

    -I didn't know Joseph was real and thought Jonathan fought the Pillar Men
    -I thought there were 12 Pillar Men and that they were a terrorist syndicate
    -thought Jotaro became the overall main character, and that Steel Ball Run was caused by Stairway to Heaven sending him and his allies into another Universe. The Steel ball Run race was (in my...interesting interpretation) the only way to return home. I also thought at some point Diego and Dio would team up.
    -it made since because Stairway to Heaven was a horse

    Before I started reading Jojo I didn't even know who Johnathan was. I only had two volumes of the american translated Part 3 manga in my possession. I only knew about Part 3 through the game and the anime of course and scans were shit back then so I didn't read a lot of the fights.

    So while I'm just sitting there wondering who the hell Josuke, Jolyne, and Giorno are. I happened to come across Duwang Scans for Part 4...that was an interesting time. Plus there were only three volumes of Stone Ocean scanned.

    I will say that compared to the Stands of today, Part 3's do seem a little more...basic. They aren't really all that bizarre as they were back then when they first debuted. That was back when nobody was doing powers like this in a Jump Manga or any manga for that matter. Part 4 they had gotten a little better and had hit full stride halfway through that series.

    I seriously wonder what would have happened if he had decided to stick with the Ripple for the rest of the series.

    would it have just kept tying things into the Pillar Men I wonder :hmm

    more enemies that are somehow weak to the sun? :hmm I think that would've gotten old soon, but then again it's Araki
    he'd think of something :maybe

    So, Tsurugi's Stand. Its neat, I guess. But it feels pretty underwhelming, and really, kinda useless outside of freaking people out. Was hoping for a better chapter after a two month wait.

    Anyone know of any decent wallpapers? Been looking for one but either they're too messy or just not very proportional. Waiting for part 8 to get further along so pre-part 8 wallpapers would be best.

    Well you can. You don't have to know a lot about the previous parts if you start from SBR. Except for what stands are but even that's explained.

    Chapter 30 came out today. The past few chapters have been a bit slow. Last month, pretty much nothing happened at all.

    We got another callback to Part 4 in today's chapter, though. I love it when Araki does that.

    Finally finished reading Stardust Crusaders.

    Damn, what a ride. Especially towards the end.

    Overall I'd give it a 8.3/10.

    Couldn't wait any longer so started part 8 :(

    Was planning on waiting but at this rate it won't be done for years.

    Just caught up

    Spoiler:
    JOHNNY NOOOO T__T

    It's kinda obvious at this point that the architect is somehow related to that 'turn to stone' illness. Is the same that Johnny sacrificed himself for, I wonder?

    That much is obvious. There are still dozens of unanswered questions though. Part 8 has so many plot points and threads going on right now. Feels like a mystery novel or something :huh

    I did hear that Part 8 was super weird and like a mystery. :hmm

    It will be a long ass time before I read it because SBR is pretty long.

    it's so worth it though
    Sugar Mountain's probably one of my favorite arcs in the whole series and it's "only" a couple chapters long

    as for JJL
    Spoiler: nothing super spoilery, but nonetheless part 8 related stuff
    you've probably either noticed or seen it somewhere else already
    but cool how all the Higashikata Stands have 'King' in their name corresponding to their place in the family

    can't remember if it's their symbol or Morioh's, but one of em's got a crown in it

    If you're talking JoJolion...then yes, but it's suspense mixed with action mixed with lulz and mixed with the cleverness only an immortal mangaka like Araki could create.
