I've heard that the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga makes Bleach look retarded. I wonder if that's true.

Yes. And the manga(though I'm not that far).

It makes a lot of crap like Bleach look like the garbage it is.

It is a masterpiece.

Also, Joseph FTW. He's te best of the Jojos.

Wow, to think I would hear someone mention this lesser known title. I have seen some of the older anime episodes, and I actually own the game. Weird to say the least but hey, even Hiro Nakamura loves it (Heroes) so it can't be all that bad. Just odd. My friends still wig out at the storyline and the video game story mode, from shooting a gorilla that controls a haunted boat to fighting inside Jojo's dad (or as my one friend likes to say, "FIGHTING IN SEAN CONNERY'S COLON!"). Fun times.

Hey ack: Should I assume Part 5 is your favorite?
Me, you can probably guess correctly that I favor Part 2. But I also really like Part 4 for its Stand variety, even though I disliked Josuke.

I think you meant part 6. I haven't actually read pt 5 and the second half of pt 4. pt 6 is amazing, artwork wise and story wise... but I can't compare it to pt 5. pt 7 (yes, SBR is now officially pt 7) is pretty good too, though it's weird to see all those characters as different people. pt2 has got to be the most kimyou (bizarre) of them all... with the Nazis and aliens...
Jojo is a favorite among MANY manga writers, even every member of CLAMP.
Theres also a movie of pt 1 coming out! I haven't seen any of the OVA or done any of the video games... are they good?

Whoops, yeah, I mix up 5 and 6 from time to time because I haven't read too much of either series. I need to reread the series from the beginning.

In your profile though, you say you can translate Japanese. If you had the RAWs, do you think you could work on Steel Ball Run? Ignition One will probably never get around to catching up, and an anonymous scanlation might give them a kick in the right direction to getting back on track. For a manga in demand AND with furigana for easier translation, I can't believe it's gone so long without another group getting involved.
Give me a PM if you're interested. I don't have much confidence in my editing skills besides polishing script, but I know a swarm of people would be very happy to see scanlations up to date on SBR.

I don't know why it would be lesser known really. It's been on Japanese Jump for years. Sure they style is totally different and it doesn't have tv animation but.... it's really well known in Japan, thats for sure.

Anyone interested really ought to check the game out. It's a bit hard to find, but the PSX version's story mode follows Part 3 REALLY closely. Most of the fights in the storyline are recreated as minigames and such. It's a blast.
You can even play as young Joseph. :-D
