In the order of the events in the series it goes like this: JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken (TV) (This covers the Battle Tendecy Arc and the Phantom Blood Arc.)

Yes, they are connected. Just from Wikipedia about Season 1 (the 2012 series), The first season aired in Japan between October 5, 2012 and April 5, 2013, with episodes 1-9 covering the Phantom Blood arc, and episodes 10-26 covering the Battle Tendency arc. The first part follows a young man named Jonathan Joestar who becomes involved in a battle against ...

Edit: See @senshin's answer for the correct answer. This answer addresses the question assuming the version on Crunchyroll was the same as before. I will keep this here for general reasons as to why the series may have been censored on TV. I don't have a definitive answer, but I can offer some guesses: This season may have aired on TV earlier than usual so ...

I found a page from the US Government's Patent and Trademark Office that explains when a musician can trademark a name. http://www.uspto.gov/learning-and-resources/ip-policy/musicians-and-artists-profile, under Registering a Name: Sometimes musicians and artists want to register their name as a trademark, including a stage name or pseudonym. If the mark ...

Originally, Dio did die at the end of Phantom Blood, but when Araki decided to write Stardust Crusaders, he retconned the ending of Phantom Blood. These retcons were applied to the anime accordingly. After retconning, the coffin had a second compartment that Dio hid in while Erina hid in the top compartment. After Erina got in the coffin, Dio ripped off ...

The JoJo's Bizzare Adventure series (as in, the manga) as a whole is devided into 8 story arcs. 3 of these have been animated so far. I'm going to list these in order of release, but as far as order of viewing goes... Well, let's get to that when we get to that. Also, it should be noted that all of these arcs, while sharing chronologial connetions (to a ...

user11503's answer is exactly correct: the earlier parts of JoJo were just as bad when they aired on TV. Here's the TV version of OP's screenshot from JoJo part 1: Not much better than Stardust Crusaders. Here's what happened: sometimes, Crunchyroll only gets streaming rights to a show after the BDs have come out. This was the case for JoJo parts 1 and 2. ...

From what I know, Araki enjoys playing with various colour schemes, which is evident in multiple different colour versions of the characters in manga covers and coloured artwork, which the anime series has followed as it is a big 'part' of the look and feel of Jojo-series as a whole. For specific instances of colour, I guess it's mainly to enhance and add ...

Polnareff knows this by virtue of him being Polnareff. Combining the individual gestures and their 'translations' makes the sentence that it does. Pan (Japanese sound for clapping) + 2 (two) + ok (maru) + seeing something (mieru) = pan-tsu (underwear) + maru (entire) + mieru (can see) Only Kakyoin is able to decipher what he's trying to say, since NO ONE ...

I don't think are there any real copyright or trademark issues that would prevent the names Vanilla Ice or Steely Dan being used in the English localization. You can't copyright a name and I don't think trademark law would apply because there's no chance a consumer would confuse these very different products. In the case of Vanilla Ice his abandoned ...

I reckon this is primarily because JoJo starts based in 1880s Britain and they wanted to keep referencing this aspect of JoJo's heritage. Even down the generation line when they are based in America, Jojo still has a very english-based family tree. As for why some of them are not common in actual English conversation, It's more than likely problems with ...

According to Dimitri's answer, the translations go as I added them to the image below.

As my original comment suggested it is indeed a chart of power levels in certain points. The red marking stands for the power division, and it is graded accordingly with a A = Best E= lowest and anything in between. After a short search I managed to find this image which includes the same stats system on the jojo wiki page, including the translation which ...

It's also a reference to another manga series called Dr. Slump, where another character does the same hand signal. So it could be a bro moment where Polnareff is basically going "Whoa, you got that reference? Yeeeesss, we read the same comic!" It might also be worth noting that France loves manga, so it would make sense that Polnareff had read Dr. Slump.

The game has a story mode that literally starts at the ending of part 3 and it pretty much spoils all deaths in the JoJo universe. I also think it has a lot of details (like references, interactions between specific characters, special moves and even specific variations of gameplay) that can be enjoyed and understood only by someone that read the manga and ...

He inherited the Hamon ability from But from Wikia, it stated that he got Hamon's ability from Here is a video on YouTube when he used Hamon for the first time A user from JoJo's Wikia page explains that too.

No, they don't have to say "The World" whenever they want to stop time. You can find the reason why they said "The World" to stop time on this question: What is the purpose of characters shouting out the name of their attack? From the answer section, it's stated that, It's a tradition where it was intended for young audiences to yell the attack names ...

Why not blue? Because apparently there is no canon color scheme to JoJo's. Hirohiko Araki stated in notes from his lecture from 2006 When Jojo became an OVA, one of the animators asked Araki "what color if Jotaro?" however Araki had no such concept. He colors everything based on calculation. For example, in Volume 54 Giorno's clothes are pink, but in ...

Hamon was spreading throughout his body, and if he did not separate himself from his body, Dio would die. The hamon that destroyed his body, probably prevented him from regenerating his body. Dio in the final episode of Part 1 says something along the lines of "This is the man who brought me to my current state. Give him [Johnathan Jostar] a swift death." ...

I have yet to read the manga or watch the anime but a quick research I did shows that the inspiration of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure can never be attributed to a single person or thing. This quite long article discusses how JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is inspired by David Bowie and other famous rock bands, songs and movies. To quote from the article: The ...

It's in D4C at the end of that arc, when Gyro uses Scan to find where in the sewer Johnny was hiding after being shot. He tells Gyro he was able to move his legs but didn't have the strength to stand yet, and Gyro then tells him how to use the stirrups on a horse to further enhance the spin since it doesn't take much strength to do, he just needs control. ...

Some years ago I shared your confusion, and I kept thinking and thinking until I found an answer I was satisfied with. I also wrote this "answer" in an italian forum I was part of at that time. To be fair, it did not receive very much attention, but I want to translate it because I think it could be of some help (I doubt it to be correct because I believe H. ...

My interpretation was that civilizations came and went with time's acceleration, effectively resetting the universe. The next part steel ball run arguably has a major plot point related to this. I'd guess there's a decent article somewhere. Here's a quote from the jojo wikia. (http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/Alternate_Universe) Made in Heaven increases ...

While Star Platinum has a bad habit of pulling new abilities from underneath his loin cloth (I'm looking at you, Star Finger), I don't think it's the case here. I think it was implied that Star Platinum had the Time Stop ability the whole time. When Jotaro confronted Dio, he quickly figured out that their stands were very similar in terms of speed, range, ...

Joseph is Jonathan's descendant. Erina was already pregnant when they boarded that ship, the random child she saved later married her son and gave birth to Joseph.

What I understood from the show was that Giorno's Gold Experience Requiem put Diavolo in a state where he constantly had to experience death over and over again forever. He would die in a particular scenario, wake up in another place and experience his death in that place as well and then proceed to wake up in another place... and so on. From the Diavolo ...

I’m a third of the way through Part 3, and as far as I can tell, there’s minimal, if any at all, link between Stand and Hamon (Ripple) abilities. Initially, I thought the Stand was an extension of Hamon, since there’s a remark about Jotaro’s ability to fight while unable to breathe in his initial fight with Avdol, which other people on the internet have also ...

It's correct that Jotaro can move in frozen time. And by that logic, DIO can also move in frozen time for 2 seconds. Jotaro can stop time for 5 seconds and he uses it (refer to time stop) in the 9th second of DIO's time stop, and at this moment, Za Warudo's time stop has been replaced by Star Platinum's and DIO can only move for 2 seconds. He ended up being ...

They aren't flying, but rather a consecutive set of "Stand leaps" combined with The World's ability to stop time. This is basically when the stand uses its power to perform a very powerful jump by either jumping or punching walls and the floor. For example, in Jotaro's fight with Dio we see him punch a wall with Star Platinum to propel him in another ...
