I really want to enjoy Jojo, but it seems to have the same problem I had with Bakemonogatari. Incredible production, but the characters and story didn't interest me. I will say, I do like the characters in Jojo and the last few minutes of the 2nd episode caught my attention. So I'm not dropping Jojo just yet.
JoJo actually has a very small budget, surprisingly, although it makes up for its shortcomings with the stylistic elements and references to manga panels. The appeal of the series is definitely in how over-the-top and silly it is, so those looking for deep characters and an amazing story will find themselves disappointed. The manga is much more comedic as well.
