In Part IV, an Arrow manifesting latent Stand abilities travels throughout Morioh, Japan in 1999; as high-schooler Josuke Higashikata (illegitimate son of Joseph) and friends seek out the culprit of a series of decade-long homicides. Set in 2001, Part V follows Giorno Giovanna, son of Dio, and his ambition to rise within the Neapolitan mafia by subverting its most powerful gang: Passione.

17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This show is a roller coaster of emotions. I laughed with it, felt anger with it and even cried with it. The fight scenes are always awesome and even sometimes hilarious. Who would've thought you could defeat your foe with a simple string? Can't get enough of JoJo. It's one adventure that is beyond bizarre.
