A1 doesn't give a fuck about yer originals. They do what the fuck they want. No armor? Yeah, no, let's give him some fullplate so that everybody knows how epic he is. Although he still mean shit in the adaptation.
Is there a problem, nigg'?

Laffo. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess this is Sword Art Online.
Yes. Much better than JoJo.
I've never watched JoJo, but SAO is better than nothing.

Nigga blame abec, he's the one that came up with the design in the LNs before the anime aired.
Lina Inverse had brown hair, runes all over her cape, and her four magic-boosting amulets were all different colours (which was even a plot point).
The novel illustrations ignored all of this.
See: every cover of every old fantasy novel ever. No matter what the characters are described as wearing, the cover art will show them in loincloths and chainmail bikinis (alas poor Conan).
Heathcliff's armor is the least of the anime's faults.
