    i’m beyond delighted that it could bring you joy! also kfdalhfda i’m super impressed by how far you are into it!

    Well, you know, you were right — it’s not a hard series to read; it’s very enjoyable, and it’s not repetitive. (I may have stayed up quite late the past couple days trying to find out what would happen next :)) I like the third volume the most of all of the ones I’ve read so far! I guess it’s a lot longer than the previous two volumes, so there’s more going on with the plot, more time to get to know the characters, more fun little asides. Also, the third volume has less powering up and training montages (not that I mind those too much — I’ve read plenty of fighting comics over the years) and a lot more road trips. I may have to check out the new anime version of this, one of these days.

    Part one was the shortest of the total series! Araki definitely evolves and progresses in his art and writing in each part and that’s interesting to see. Part 4 especially exemplifies it! There’s also a real sense of joy and fun and a love of drawing that I get from Araki that makes the series quite addictive! ….I’m kind of curious on if there are any characters you particularly like XD

    The part 3 anime episodes air every Friday so they’ll be there for you when you’re ready. A lot of us are crossing our fingers for at least parts 1-6 to be adapted into anime. And if the popularity continues to grow I think there is reason so have high hopes for it!

    Such expansiveness though. There’s also video games and jewelry lines and Gucci store front and magazine collabs. There’s even a Jojo one-shot in the comics collection at the Louvre

    Aw, I’m glad to hear that - I’ll look forward to part 4, then! I like the art/character design style a whole lot, and it definitely keeps getting more polished as the series goes on, though at least so far there’s always a certain amount of playing fast and loose with anatomy and stuff. And Araki’s real good at nighmare fuel/gore/body horror. (never just have one character cut another character’s throat when you could have one character cut another character’s whole face off)

    I’m pretty fond of all the characters in series 3, even some of the one-off (and often unfortunate) villains. (I realize her son was a monster, but I still felt pretty bad for Enya, especially after [spoiler]. And I … kinda liked the evil baby and was happy that he just got sent back to his mom?). I guess I’m especially fond of Abdul, Kakyoin, and Polnareff. Polnareff is hilarious, adorable, and a huge dork, and I was extremely happy when [spoiler], because I loved that relationship and was pretty bummed out when [spoiler]. I enjoy Joseph as a by turns cool and embarrassing grandpa, and I enjoy Jotaro’s exasperation with him.

    I liked Lisa Lisa a lot, and I was sorry when [spoiler]. I understand one of the later Jojos is a lady, so I’m looking forward to seeing how that goes (hopefully better?). Wham was my favorite villain of the trio from series 2. And I don’t know if I’d exactly say I like him, but Dio makes a compelling series-long villain — the Gothic novel backstory between him and Jonathan made a good opening act for the series.

    Carried my box of vegetables over this morning, and then went to register voters at the senior center a few blocks away (it all worked out very handily) for three hours with three other folks. That was nice — it was a lot of standing outside in the warming weather (and watching velvet ants scurry back and forth on the pavement) but we were in the shade, and the other volunteers and the folks passing by were all fun to talk to.

    I know I posted this cucumber noodles with peanut sauce recipe before as part of a longer list, but as of that list I hadn’t actually tried it yet. It’s really great.

    And it seems like it’ll be pretty easy to take extra vegetables to the food bank. Managed to sort out a decent sized box worth of today’s squash and cucumbers that were not infested with anything, chewed by anything, scarred, weirdly shaped, too ripe or too small, so nothing I’d be ashamed to show someone else, or that wouldn’t stand up to a little storage time.

    Not that my vegetables are crap, on the whole, but unless you’re really going for it with powerful chemicals, everything you grow to eat gets eaten at least a little bit by something else (or many somethings) before you get to it.
