@Tenshi RESIST THE FEELS (I'm doing a bad job at it :c)
@dj I have mixed feelings about it, but, I'm leaning more towards having enjoyed it than not. One of the qualms I had with it was the main character. I just couldn't force myself to feel much for Jojo. Though, I did feel horrible for him when Dio started doing all that stuff to him, I just couldn't sincerely root for Jojo through the course of the story (didn't want Dio to win, but I just really felt blah about Jojo winning). I found myself drawn to the other characters instead, despite them not having much time in the spotlight.
I liked Erina because she stood up to Dio (not just this, but she made sure to protect Jojo from anyone/everyone and nursed him back to health despite her previous feelings of being inadequate to be a lady due to the fact that her first kiss was stolen by a man she wasn't dating (which honestly sort of made me a bit angry with Jojo because I don't recall him going after her to try to repair their relationship, he just went with the flow instead). She was willing to give up her life to die beside the man she loved and was strong enough afterward to listen to Jojo and take the mysterious baby and hide in the coffin, and then (presumably since I still haven't started part II yet) raise two babies by herself.),
I liked Speedwagon because he's a true bro (Tried to help Jojo many times despite his own inadequacies), and I liked Zeppelli because he faced his destiny despite knowing what awaited him. I guess my big problem is just that I found the people around him to be more interesting than he was, and considering the fact that he was supposed to be the main character...I'm not so sure that that's a good thing. BUT, I am glad that they were there. They were certainly some of the bright spots in this portion of the story.
Another bright spot would be the fight scenes. They certainly do have some amazing fights. They were done very well, even if some of the results were a bit gory and gruesome. I also enjoyed a few of the developments in the story (how twisted Dio really was with his father, and the truth behind the mask). Though the story could get a bit predictable at times, it did manage to throw in a few twists here and there. It was a pretty straightforward and simple story.
As for the ending, it was the perfect way to end it and send it into the next installment. I almost teared up there at the last chapter. It was very sad, and I thought that it was nice to see it end with the two of them since that is how this whole mess began.
