Are there any decent translations of Jojo? I've been stuck at the half-way point of Stardust Crusaders because I can't stand the shit translations. I really don't want to have to deal with Duwang. It's hilarious, but I can't come to appreciate it until I've read good translations.
/f/a// Jojo dump.
Part 4 good translations is almost finished.
I need to finish Jotaro first.
I think part 4 has some hosted translations on Batoto that are high quality translations. I think other than the final arc in part 4, it's almost de-duwanged.
If you want to track down the original English published volumes for Stardust Crusaders, then that's another option to avoid awkward scans.
If no one de-duwangs Stardust Crusader, then I'll buy them as a last resort.
you will read that Duwang and you will fucking love it you worthless piece of shit. It will make you a true JoJo man
I REFUSE TO READ THE DUWANG.
>I REFUSE TO READ THE DUWANG.
DUWANG is good shit. Shut up and eat your lemons, you'll be better for it.
Why is Jojo so fucking fabulous.
I just don't get it. What the fuck goes on in Araki's head? What is she even doing?
wtf is this legit jojo?
Duwang is included in the new translations. Yes, they thought keeping in an /a/ meme was more important than going 100%.
Jojo marketing for Gucci. Shit's fabulous.
I don't mind a small joke. I just need to know that there are new translations that exist besides Duwang's Engrish.
Jojo general. If anyone knows of a scan group who has translated Stardust Crusaders properly, please let me know.
You're shit outta luck buddy. I was in the same situation as you a couple years ago when i first tried to get in to JoJo. Yeah Duwang is funny for a couple issues but shit gets fucking tiresome pretty fast. Luckily some fine folks have been translating shit constantly so the series is more readable now than it was before, still not perfect though.
Links? Will I be able to find this with a google search?
I feel you anon
I feel you deeply
your feeling I can feel deeply
C-moon is the cutest stand
At this point, I think I might just watch Stardust Crusaders then read from there onward.
I was talking about the the series as a whole, so i like i said earlier, everything is still not properly translated with good quality scans but as far as i know your best bet on reading all the parts in at least decent quality is on batoto.
Fuck your spaghetti cooking birds. Check this.
Japanese bird being Jojo.
You mother fucker.
I wouldn't blame you
Unless you mean to avoid duwang p4
Yay, a JoJo thread
>Just ordered Part 7 volumes 1, 2 and 3 yesterday
I don't even care if I can't read them, I've always wanted to collect them. Part 7 was a fucking masterpiece too, can't wait to see the art in person.
The panda is one of the few new generation pocket monster I like.
I feel like I'm liking Pokemon less and less with each generation. ;_;
>there are people who don't think part 5 is the best part
>all these parts that I can't read because I'm stuck with Duwang
This is truly suffering.
Yeah same. Last generation I sincerely enjoyed was the gen 4
I personally loved Part 5, but it did have a lot of flaws. I can't really pick a part to call favourite, I love all of them.
shit translations are part of the golden experience of jojo op.
>been reading from start to finish
>up to part 6
why is jolyne so great?
Duwang is really not that bad. I marathoned JoJo for the first time a few months ago and didn't even realize I was reading Duwang through part 3.
Because you can really see her progressing from a clueless girl into an awesome main character fit for her own part.
Plus her stand made fights really creative.
Can't imagine reading through JoJo the first without reading some.
Daily reminder Riff Raff might be a JoJo fan or maybe he's naturally fabulous
How do you even pronounce Duwang anyway?
>Do you remember how many breadcrumbs you have eaten in your life?
I usually just pronounce it Dew-Wang
I always said it like "do wang"
stardust crusaders is the only part of jojo with serious translation issues (well, it doesn't have many translation issues but it is plagued with scanning issues).
DUWANG is pretty much completely retranslated. you'll only have to read a couple of volumes in DUWANG (and it's worth it trust me)
i seriously doubt anything can match DUWANG's Mona Lisa story
except that part is REALLY fucking close to the japanese version, just like echoes speaking ebonics
everythread until... uh, fuck.
I can't believe Stardust Crusaders has been out for so long and not ONE person has decided to put up better translations than Duwang.
if that had really been an italian bag, even the pencil and the candy would have gone, forever.
When I first saw weather report I thought his design was stupid as shit, and when I found out his stand was "controls weather" I thought he'd just be jojo's equivalent of storm from x-men.
By the end of part 6 he was one of my favorites.
>When I first saw weather report I thought his design was stupid as shit
>by the end of part 6 he was one of my favorites
holy shit, it wasnt just me.
maybe it was seeing these pictures of jolyne with two big muscly man, i thought they were going to be her bitches instead of being best bros 4 lyf
>Implying there is such a thing
whats up with this guy?
why did araki go "im making this guy, his power is that his life is fucking SHIT"
part 3 isnt even my favorite
but i am
Why do people like Joseph so much? He's not unlikable, but I like Jonathon more. Maybe even Jotaro.
You can't top god.
It should be pretty obvious why
More importantly, why does anyone like Dio at all? He's a humongous dick, through and through, even for villains.
joseph is fucking smug as fuck dude
and the shit he pulls off makes you go
>HOW THE FUCK DID I NOT THINK ABOUT THAT
Are you talking about the Joestar family technique?
I know Jonathon is that classic boring good but just protagonist but fuck it, he did it so well
that is only one of the things, like the fucking rope trick.
also he fucks cliches up, if jojo was a normal shounen he would never have figured out that straights is a vampire so fast, much less shoot him with a tommygun before even asking him anything
why did they even bring iggy along?
they know he's not gonna fucking help them unless some major shit happens to him, did they just plan on throwing him into dio and expecting him to get pissed off at him?
7 > 4 > 2 > 3 = 6 > 1 > 5
8 = promising
Joseph is the most featured and most developed JoJo.
The reader follows him from young buck to matured fighter to old guard, to mentor to feeble man, to tentative father figure (maybe). Its hard not to be attached to the character that is the most human like that
The other Jojos are great but its hard to compete with someone they've seen the rise, fall, ups and downs of.
Josuke is still my favorite Jojo anyway. Its either Josuke=Joseph or Josuke>Joseph. I can't decide
Iggy was there just for the coffee flavored gum
well, considering every stand user that wasn't a Joestar and didn't have a brain slug yanked out of them wanted to kill them, might as well bring along the only one that's neutral
the thing is that all jojos grow, ALL of them.
even fucking jotaro grows
>hey avdul, maybe we should search for more stand us-
>ITS A FUCKING DOG, ITS ALREADY THE BEST STAND USER EVER
>I fucking love dolphins
I love Jotaro but please. He does eventually fix what he lost with Jolyne but that's not exactly a whole lot of growth.
>Huh, anyone else notice Iggy looks really REALLY different than when we picked him up?
How is Jotaro's stand able to move and transport so many things into his cell? I'm guessing that some of those things would be a great distance away and SP's power would diminish almost exponentially the further he gets away from Jotaro after the five meter mark. Is this ever explained in greater detail?
this scene would be so fucking good animated, the way he casually shoots out of nowhere is so great
He waits outside the prison and beats people up as they walk pass for their things.
maybe grow isnt the exact word im looking for, more like his character was more fleshed out and he developed flaws, instead of just being mr punchyghoststoptime
wouldnt it be great if david just changes his design out of nowhere like on the manga instead of keeping him like that since the beggining?
mid SBR is GOAT
Jojo always has weird plotholes. Like why did we never get an explanation on why Crazy Diamond never fixed Okuyasu's dad after Josuke said he would
You know Araki likes to change stuff. Star Platinum probably wasn't meant to be as stationary. He probably realized it would be broken as fuck though and then set a range limitation on it.
>>101538644 could also be a valid explanation.
Gappy is starting to become my favorite JoJo why is he so great
Just finished Part 5. Those last couple of volumes were mind boggling and oh my fuck Golden Experience Requiem is the most broken thing ever. How in the world did the arrow make Giorno's stand go from something as mid-tier as Golden Experience to the most OP thing in existence?
Ultimately I definitely ended up liking it more and more as I read it.
So far my rankings look like:
4 > 2 > 5 > 3 > 1
i thought he tried to do it and his body quickly switched back into mutation form again?
>tfw I want to read 8 now but I would have to skip sbr to do it
>Can't bring myself to skip but nor can I keep going with SBR right now
Why is the start so boring.
It's been mentioned that the range probably wasn't set back there. My personal explanation is that getting away from Jotaro just weakens the Stand, but it can still carry things around like a weak ghost.
everytime im reading jojo and there's a rainy scene i turn rainymood on along with a song that matches the scene, usually from asb
am i the only one?
but it's bringing stuff in instantaneously. Star Platinum could do Za Wardu right off the bat and I'd wager a hell of a lot longer than 10 seconds to get that shit
because mid sbr is the best fucking thing ever.
actually, as soon as the race starts it gets fucking gr8, if you dont like it then you are gay
Pol made it pretty clear that the arrow grants you the power you need to accomplish your desire.
>SCR=protect arrow from Diavolo
>Bites the Dust =Protect Kira's identity
what did you think of the rolling stones chapters?
>but it's bringing stuff in instantaneously
I don't remember that anywhere. They even show the hand taking the gun out of the cop's pocket.
Just power through the beginning, just like I did. The farther I got in, the more I absolutely loved it.
Honestly, with the new voice work , music, style, and THAT FUCKING FANTASTIC RAINBOW SMOKE WHICH BETTER APPEAR EVERYFUCKING TIME.
I am hype
Pretty much this.
I stopped when they decided it would be fun to ignore the water holes and just run through the desert. Where is all this gr8 I'm supposed to be reading?
Shut up you SUPER RETARD.
Look for the Araki collection
Part 4 use invincible trio
FUCK YOU, YOU MEGA DUWANG.
Personally I thought it got great at the next stage, the rocky mountains.
fuck you, gyro explains his plan to johnny
It gets awesome after the Boom Boom family and keeps getting better.
who's the super retard now?
new chapter when
After they start? Because I literally finished as they veered (at that point I had intended to come back)
they set up camp and gyro explains it
bout three fiddy
We really need another PV, but I doubt we are getting shit until a week before the show airs.
should i just read part 8 after i finish 7?
or should i wait until its over
because i dont want to wait years until its over
I saw some for sale on a site the other day. I was so excited...
Until I saw they were $30-35 a piece. Kind of a lot for my current budget. How much were yours? Just curious.
>Not living in the True Man's World
WHERE THE FUCK DIDE DIO GET A ROAD ROLLER FROM?
I think there was a part where the cell keepers were talking with Jotaro's mom with their back to him, and then when they turned around tons of more shit suddenly went into his room.
hey, Egypt is a country on the rise. Construction going on everywhere. Would you prefer a tanker like in the OVA? And instead of deep ear cleaning action he just claws at his face
>get raped by old guy
>enter true man's world
woah, guts must be their king
norisuke has two navels
gappy has 4 balls
what the fuck araki
Then I dunno. Maybe the Stand had already carried the items nearby and hid them to get them in there while the officers weren't looking.
If you don't mind me asking another question, what site did you find them on? Because that is a lot more doable.
More like why was he the only non final antagonist with a time stand
I guess his stand was by far the weakest time stand
It's supposedly out of control so I don't know if he would listen to Jotaro wanting shit or something like that I don't remember, but I guess he could have hidden it behind his cell's wall outside.
>>get raped by old guy
It was only nearly rape.
Where's my rape porn, Japan?
>Valentine has no sameface
>Turns into sameface slowly
I found a few chapters on amazon.ca, I was skeptical but I saw that the retailer was amazon itself so I'm not that worried.
holy shit lol
It was implied that it was bringing shit that Jotaro would find interesting. Back there it probably had a primitive mind of its own, which explains why it would know that being looked at by police is a bad thing.
So it was like a dog, I guess?
JOJO CONFIRMED FOR ENDING IN 3589
That fucking Johnathan
What the fuck happened to Jotaro?
Yeah I had a feeling about the primitive mind stuff, but I decided to roll with it and not question exactly how he had done it.
I can't tell which one is Jonathon.
Jonathan needs medical attention.
Giorno looks like a monkey
Yeah, it doesn't really matter. All this just proved that Star Platinum didn't necessarily zawarudo the objects into the cell.
It's either bottom of left page or dead center
it's funny how much araki shifts between samface and not sameface
Judging from >>101541277 I'm guessing very bottom on the left.
I thought it was Rohan.
Eat shit, assholes
Bottom left is Joseph. So he's dead center.
Actually I think it's the other way, look at >>101541277
Joseph's new design includes the goggles
Really? Maybe I shouldn't have ignored Araki's new designs then.
what are your top 3 favorite characters?
In no particular order
Im up to part 6 my top 5 in no particular order
So wait, is Kars supposed to be a homage to Baoh with all those crazy fucking powers he has and arm blades?
no, kars is a homage to mai dik
No, he just evolves in any possible way. Why does everything have to be a homage for you guys?
God I hate those samefaces so much. SBR was the closest to perfection and then we had that. Why? Aside from a cool looking ACDC, it's like Araki simply stopped being able to draw different characters.
Time will do that to you.
I think Araki refined himself fine with the art and the bizarre details but he stuck to the "fabulous" part of JoJo a little too much.
I'd like to see where Jojolion is going since I see some changes in the art there also.
I wish I had saved the scans, but the most recent JoJo anniversary collection of all the volumes had new art, and it was miles better than his previous stuff. I guess he had more time to draw them, or just remembered how they looked
Guys, does narancia look like a girl even if he is a boy?
will you suck his dick
I see you in that /vg/ thread Anon
this is just a test anon, for science
Go back to /vg/ with the scaliefags.
Rohan you crazy motherfucker why are you holding your hands like that
I'd prefer people from /v/ than from /vg/. That's where threads go to die and the people that stay there are usually shitposters like Naranciafags
The fights and stands were really well done and creative, my main gripe with it though is just how stale and dry the dialogue is between characters.
>not the worst JoJo
That's not Killer Queen
>actually considering Jonathan to be the worst
Tusk Act 1 is the cutest. Too bad it grows up into a psychopath
If you don't read DUWANG you're not a true fan of jojo and throwing out the guys hard work.
Man, my homo sense is tingling.
Well, people are talking about the JoJo's game on /vg/, so I think they're fine
They were talking about it 6 months ago too. It's not deep enough to warrant a constant general, and it shows. If I wanted to talk ASB specifically, I'd just go ahead and make a thread on /v/ at this point and watch it hit bump limit in the time /vg/ gets 25 posts
Can someone explain what coffin Dio is in at the start of part 3 i thought Erina escaped on it. did Araki just forget about this conveniently?
The same coffin.
He had a spare tucked behind his ear
this is a legit plothole isnt it?
There's plenty of plotholes, like how a random guy who looks just like Josuke saved Josuke when he was young and it was never expanded on.
Is it so hard to believe that it was just a guy with the same haircut and a school uniform? Although I admit, I thought there were going to be time shenanigans after I Kira's time powers were revealed
that would have been the coolest thing if they had somehow explained that and it was him that saved himself
there was only one coffin if erina takes one there are none left for dio
That's not a plothole, that's a loose end.
Just seems a little farfetched that a guy with Josuke's exact hairstyle and clothes was walking around in a blizzard and stopped to help at just the right time.
In a series with so many time shenanigans it's a plothole
Plothole would be something that couldn't have happened in a way that was presented, the Josuke incident simply didn't get explained but there's nothing that makes it a plothole.
It was the same fucking coffin.
Its not a plot hole.
>Just seems a little farfetched that a guy with Josuke's exact hairstyle and clothes was walking around in a blizzard and stopped to help at just the right time.
So does vampires, ghosts, stands, GER, King Crimson, resetting the universe, turning into a dinosaur, feng shuei stands
Everything in JoJo is pretty farfetched
Does anyone have the clean high quality version of this i know it exists but i cant find a good scan of it.
not him, but I get what he's saying. If Erina was in the coffin, when did Dio get the chance to attach his head onto Jonathon and climb in.
Just wait until you get to part 5.
Mordecai based ss fuck
im reading part 5 now it seems better than the end of 4 was
Uh maybe in here, album of Jojo's wallpapers and high-res images.
Either way it's nice to have all of those pics.
damn these are nice
>can't turn into a dinosaur at will
>can't reset the universe when he's bored
>isn't a vampire
How do you live when you're so pathetic?
Dunno, maybe the coffin had a second opening.
Definitely my favorite volume cover.
its not there but thanks thats great stuff
I liked Tusk Act 4. Hes a terrifying Elephantman/Cowboy with the power of infinite rotation.
He has a pretty cute battle cry
I love Johnny's Great Heart Attack. I wonder if we'll ever see the day when SBR gets animated.
I didn't know Araki used "Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud and one the stars." as an epigraph for Phantom Blood.
It actually fits pretty nice.
It sounds like "Tsumimimi" to me no matter how many times I watch it.
Think I might have a hearing problem.
You're right. I just based it off of what it was translated too.
Is the blue bird Kira?
theres a good version of this cover in jojo a-go! go! does anyone know where to find some good scans?
What stand would you guys like to have I'm starting to dig diver down
Original cone tent, donut steel.
