I finished this series and now I’ll try to make a compact review for it as I tried to do for the first three episodes of Gundam. Here we go.
Story. In terms of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure don’t have that much to offer. Good guys beat bad guys one or two at a time and that is it. I don’t particularly like the way the anime ended, mostly because Dio was defeated (spoiler, wow) and he was a cool character.
Pacing. Most of the show was dedicated to the fights against Dio’s minions, and that gets old if you look for the story development. But if you just want fights, you won’t be disappointed.
Animation. There are some small issues there, but all in all it is well made.
Characters. All the characters here are manly men and manliness is their dominating quality. Well, not really. They have different personalities and different ways of thinking. And if you are used to modern anime you might find the characters here refreshing.
Character designs. Gigantic guys looking as if they just went out of the gym. You say that there are too many moe shows nowadays, so, why don’t you watch this instead :P
Music and sound effects. Nothing too impressive. I don’t even remember how it sounded.
Opening and ending. Ending is not interesting (just credits, like in regular movies), but the opening was quite strange and I was not able to figure out what it was about. Before each episode we saw a human sacrifice and a man, with a mask and there was no explanation.
Action. This anime is all about action. Guns, swords, fists, sand, reflections, fire, poisonous gas and zombies, all that was used as weapons there.
Final thoughts. This anime is six episodes long. Even if you don’t like it, it won’t be a huge loss of time. Though I won’t recommend this anime, I am just saying that you may like it and that it is not bad.
Till the next time, see you (^_^)/
