The next thing you're going to say is "This game could have been better".

Also: Someone explain how King Crimson works, in less then three pages.

You thought this was the work of Brad Shoemaker, but it was me, Dio!

This game seems alright. I've been reading the manga and it seems to capture the characters pretty well at least, although I have yet to see the anime adaptation.

"How do you do that with your arm?" - Vinny describes the entirety of JoJo.

The one who stole your first kiss wasn't JoJo, it was me, DIO!

Also the JoJo anime is pretty great, but the game doesn't capture how ridiculously evil Dio is. The whole series is pretty silly

I just got done with series 2 and started series 3 today of JoJo and oh my god this anime is the best. So dumb in such great ways and its crazy how much stuff has ripped it off over the years, right down to Guiles hair in street fighter being based on a german cyborg mans hair from jojo.

Also this game seems great but then probably a case of only jojo fans will get much out of it.

Saddest thing about this whole quick look is that this anime would be the one anime these guys would actually all end up liking because of its humor against anime as a whole.

The descriptor "Bizarre" was never so apt. Other contenders: "Fabulous", "EFFIN AWESOME"

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is always one of those things I feel like I should know more about than I do, simply by enjoying a good anime series once and a while.

Also, same art style as the guy who did Fist of the North Star?

The anime is phallic like a turgid rocket ship filled with brightly colored bouncing balls that explode into neon signs upon impact with planets made of pink bubblegum.

I like this game's style. But it seems like it's aimed primarily for JoJo fans.

Your next line is "Do you even pose?"

And I'm loving the hell out of this game, CyberConnect doesn't make the best fighting games, but they do make the best anime games (See Asura's Wrath)

@DasaKamov in the anime, characters are often named after prog rock / rock and roll bands. Its a weird show!

@pkmango7: Somebody should post the pic of Persona Q where the P4 cast is posing as Jojo characters.

Also, I'm glad they started to like the game when they played versus.

Of course there's an hour long quick look for JoJo, because it's amazing. Let the manly posing begin!

Nope, different dudes, same era and audience. FotNS is a bit older though iirc. Both crazy (and good) 80's manga about dudes beating the shit out of eachother.
