QUALITY? In my Jojo's?
Happens quite a lot actually.
lol part 1
Araki's first art was pretty crappy, but he improved really fucking fast
It looks as if Jonathan is taking back his arm after a punch, and not actually punching.
Wolrd's most depressing chapter.
I mean, who the fuck kills the dog? I mean go for the girlfriend (LOL KISS = RAPE FOR SHOUNEN JUMP) or whatever, but don't kill the fucking dog.
Dio's defining moment.
Never mind that! What the fuck is up wit his pelvis??
WITHOUT A FUCKING REASON
HE'S LIKE A TRAIN
Never mind that! What the fuck is up with his pelvis??
Speedwagon's leg is going the wrong way.
Actually no, though anatomy is wrong his leg is going in the correct direction
We need more big JoJos. They are shrinking.
Jonathan - 2m?
Joseph - 1.95
Jotaro - 1.90
Josuke - 1.80
Giorno - 1.75
I don't know how tall the rest is, but I'm sure neither Jolyne or Johnny are tall. Much less BIG.
I BAWWWWWed. That was a really awesome dog too...
he became my favorite villain at that point. Even waaay before za warudo, he became ultimate evil in my book.
Fact: Killing an animal will get more emotion out of the audience than killing random humans.
Obviously. Why the need to remark about it?
It's only regarding cute animals, like cats and dogs. Fish, birds, bears, and such rarely create emotion, because they're either dangerous or food. Companion animals are likened to children, which also generate more emotions than adults, as they are defenseless against the intelligent machinations of adult humans. Adult humans can defend themselves against oppressors, so it's usually seen as humorous if they can't defend themselves, because it's their own fault.
This could lead to interesting discussion.
I think that this could be due to the fact that as humans, we all know that mankind is flawed. Therefore, in some way, however miniscule, there is always some degree of justification for the death of a human. We perceive animals differently, obviously. Animals, particularly animals we are attached to as a species - dogs, cats, some of the other prominent mammals - are viewed as flawless, and without sin, for lack of a better word. And so, all animals, and particularly dogs, I think, have an association with purity. You will never find an evil dog in literature. If there is one, it will likely be the tool of some higher power, or altered in some way, or portrayed more as a wolf than a dog, which is considered evil because of the time humanity spent as hunter-gatherers. Hence, the dog's role is two-fold; one, as a companion, and two, as godlike representation of childlike innocence.
I could expound on this, but anon probably doesn't care anyway.

The ghost hound of the Baskervilles?
>And so, all animals, and particularly dogs, I think, have an association with purity
What? Why particularly dogs?
Fuck that. Amy is FUCKING EVIL. Doesn't help that she has a plate on her head that if you pat her there she goes psychotic. What the fuck was Roger thinking?
Symbolically, they're the truest friends. Loyal, compationate and trustworthy.
Seems dainty to me.
Did you read my whole post? Altered, used to the ends of an evil master, etc.
I would probably attribute it to their loyalty, which is often played up in literature, but I think there's also a more subconscious reason, that being the intimate association between dogs and childhood, the time when a human being is considered most pure. Note the epithet "a boy and his dog," which will typically conjure up images of a simpler time, when we (collectively speaking) were free to roam and do as we please, yet untouched by the rat race of life. Essentially, is the entwining of a universally regarded virtue, loyalty, with a notion of innocence.
Seeing Jonathan in Araki's post-part three, extra FABULOUS style makes me want to barf. However, it seems to fit Will Zeppeli perfectly fine.
It's just something about dogs. I know I wouldn't feel as bad if Dio killed a cat.
Dio did kill a cat. Remember part III?
The very fact that I can't recall it just proves my previous statement.
Bump because this thread strokes my ego
