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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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. ...

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 the JoJo's Wikia page explains that too.

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 ...

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 ...

My real-world explanation is simply that Araki forgot. However, my lore-friendly answer is that Dio either wasn't capable of using his Vampiric abilities because of Jonathan's body, or that he simply didn't care to because he was virtually invincible with The World.

The chronology of JoJo adaptations goes like this: 1987-1989: Hirohiko Araki publishes the first two parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency. These parts both focus on the power of Hamon. 1989-1992: Araki publishes Part 3, Stardust Crusaders. While writing this part, Araki introduces the concept of Stands, and these go on to ...

For legal questions such as these, it is always good to contact a copyright lawyer in your country. Laws regarding fair use, copyrights and the likes differ per country, and a copyright lawyer should be more than capable of answering your questions. And this answer should not be seen as legal advice. What you are describing is fan fiction/derivative work, ...

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. ...

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 ...

The purpose of the torture dance was a weird thing revolving around something special. If you look at the art that comes in the dance, it indicates Narancia's, Mista's, and Fugo's stands tormenting Mario Zucchero.

Jotaro planned to stop time when the limit of DIO's time stop was finishing. This happened when Jotaro did the finishing blow after he survived the road roller attack. And when DIO stopped time, Jotaro can't use the ability but can feel the situation in this case of "time stop world", but when he can move, Jotaro can trigger the ability while he is ...

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.

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 Brando would die. The Hamon that destroyed his body, probably prevented him from regenerating his body. Dio Brando 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 [Jonathan Joestar]...

No, the two of them 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 ...

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. ...

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, ...
