Jojo's bizarre adventure.
I honestly don't get the appeal of this show at all. The characters look incredibly ugly and like a mere paper cut will kill them all thanks to how extremely bara they look. They look better at 12 than at whatever age they are when they're grown up, because they don't even look like 12 when they're 12 but more like normal human beings. People love to praise the "uniqueness" of this show but it's just very ugly and boring. Oh no, Dio is so evil he killed a dog! Oh no, Dio is so corrupted he just stole this girls first kiss!… Dio is very boring.
My friend forced me to watch this with him for the first time ever, kept telling me that it's a very good show I'll end up loving and after a whole season I still cannot stand this show and don't plan on watching more of it either. The fans are also extremely annoying. Whenever someone says anything, there has to be a Jojo retard saying "omg was that a jojo reference XD" as if it's the funniest shit ever.
Of Japanese content, anime has always been the gateway. What you need to realize is that all anime is an advertisement. It's all either an adaptation to promote manga/LN/WN sales, or an anime original by a studio, hoping to be successful enough to land an adaptation gig.
tl/dr just read the manga or novel, if you like it try the anime
Jin Roh. It's standard art house shlock that despite moving at a snails pace, doesn't spend any time to set up the characters or world that are so important to it.. Maybe the manga is better, but based on the movie I don't really want to read it. It feels like most of the fans are just in it for the techno nazi iconography or they think it's so deep because it's the first non action movie they've ever seen.
And usually most animes can be a dissapointment, sad but true. Only a few are actually good if you care about some details.>>529
I thought this was only me when I watched it, because everyone hypes it up so much, and even the "cool parts" last seconds.
