Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

This week, the baddest bitches in anime are back with help from JJBA superfan, Cidnya, from CidnyaReads. In this episode, the trio dive into the live action adaptation of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4 from VIZ Media and directed by Takashi Miike. In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I a teen gifted with supernatural powers, Josuke Higashikata (Kento Yamazaki) discovers evil lurking within his town and mysteries within his bloodline. He learns about the world of stands, his power, and the motives of the evil claiming lives across the town. With insane visuals and even wilder fashion this adaptation is right up Miike’s alley. We’ve now covered four of his films, Blade of the Immortal, Ace Attorney, Yakuza Apocalypse, and now, Jojo.

While we critique and talk about the film itself, we also go in deep on the manga’s inspirations, how to watch the long series, and into which boys are best boys in the Jojo world. And don’t worry, there’s also a lot of our signature thirst.
