JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012) Review: The Fabulous Beginning of the Joestar Tale

Image

So it seems that I’m still very much behind on blogging about the series I’ve completed (as there are a great many I’d love to write about, one in particular that recently blew me away like no other), but I’m slowly catching up (or at least, I’d like to believe that I am anyway).  Like I said before, I’m gonna be writing about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012) this time around.  I mentioned that JoJo 2012 is a JoJo adaptation done right, and that it truly is.  I still remember first hearing the news about a new TV anime for JoJo at the time and I was utterly shocked, I simply could not believe the news.  Of course, I was in no position to complain as JoJo had been one of my favorite Shounen manga (interestingly enough, one written as far back as the 80s, at that) and it was finally going to get a full-length, serious adaptation from the very beginning.  Almost a year ago I watched the first 7 or so episodes of the anime with some friends for my birthday, and I was very much impressed with the anime’s take on Phantom Blood.  Unfortunately, with a lot of other series I had to complete at the time, I was distracted quite a bit and didn’t get back to it for a while.  Back around October or November, a friend came to my house and (as huge fans of the manga) we decided to give some more of those JoJo episodes a good watch and we got through a decent bit of the Battle Tendency episodes, and it was amazing as always.  Having gotten through more, I decided that, once and for all, I had to watch through the rest of the 2012 anime and I did just that at the beginning of winter break (which seems very far from me now, and a big sign I’m really slow about my posts….).  JoJo 2012 was a fantastic way for me to relive the nostalgia days of early JoJo with flashy new animation, and it really is one of the best ways for newcomers to jump into the JoJo series.

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai Review: The God of Conquest and 2D vs 3D

I mentioned before that I’ve been watching Haruhi for my school’s anime club, and this time around I’ll be talking about the other series I’ve been watching there.  A week before the club actually got around to finishing it, I watched through Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, also known as The World God Only Knows, on my own.  It has been a while since I finished TWGOK, as it has been nearly a month since I finished it myself, though I am definitely catching up to my series as far as the blogging goes, even if that list continues to increase as I see more series.  Just like Haruhi, TWGOK ended up being a pretty enjoyable watch for me.  The two definitely had their share of humor and both were great ways to spend some time relaxing after a long day of school.  Of course, the two series are very different aside from that.  TWGOK is, well, an interesting case.  I suppose one might consider it an unconventional harem, though I would need to provide more elaboration on that as this is a very vague description.  It’s often a silly series but it does have its share of touching moments when necessary.
