Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Story
‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is an amazing visual treat to the eyes when one looks over the character designs and animated effects. The plot majorly revolves around a psychic family that is enormously built with magical and supernatural power. Almost every episode is jam-packed with actions as the characters used their creative mystic powers to achieve their goals and required mottos. The show takes the viewers on an ancestral ride where they show the fight of a particular descendant against evil. The evils and villain roles are also marvelously executed because they are created as twisted as an individual to make the hero seem powerless. This acts as another factor that makes the show extremely gripping on many levels through all the seasons.
The first narration begins with Jonathan who belongs to England and has problems with his adopted brother, Dio Brando. The plot proceeds to show the change of Dio turning into a dangerous vampire who must be controlled and stopped at all costs. Jonathan takes up the role of defeating Dio as masters a new skill called ‘Ripple ‘ that typically helps to destroy vampires. This keeps going on in all the other seasons too though the thrilling display of rivalry with extraordinary powers is shown in a more evolved and exciting environment setting with each passing season. Each season is just made to seem strung together but they all have unique and refreshing storylines to provide a new obsessive flavor to the audience. Each plot has different protagonists such as Jotaru Kujo followed by Joseph then Josuke who is the son of Joseph. All these characters are immensely powerful and their own special abilities are something you can look forward to. Although it is indeed a very heavy series with violent twists and carefully sorted psychological bends that can take up a lot of one’s mental energy. The whole show has a flare of the 1980s which is quite natural when considering the era when the manga that inspired it came out. It does have gap areas that might be difficult to make sense of from a strictly logical perspective. On the other hand, this series is a delight to watch for fashion lovers because they have a sense of extravagance as the costumes are mostly custom made keeping the concept of their individualistic traits and superpowers in mind. They all look very stylish, appealing and are definitely note-worthy! There are also many strong female characters that overcome the cutesy, vulnerable female presence as shown in most old animes. It does have remarkable inclusion of feminism.
