Fighting Spirits – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable (Live-Action) – Humble Opinions

In a corner of a world much like our own, anomalies exist. Born of strong spirit, and occasionally aided by a magical Bow and Arrow, these twists of the natural order give birth to great good and evil. Guided by the minds of those who control them, these powers fashion a story of horror and triumph, leaving bizarreness in their wake. Also, death and chaos…they leave a lot of death and chaos in their wake. But, on the plus side, some deserved it. In case you’ve been living under a suddenly creepy-looking rock, allow me to to briefly explain the long-running history of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: It’s a manga that came out quite a while ago and is still going. So concluded the brief history of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. I’d go into more detail, but considering this film jumps into the fourth iteration of the original series, it really doesn’t matter. If anything, I wish I didn’t have my previous knowledge of JoJo going into this film. By knowing where the story was going well …

Anime of the Year Awards – 2016

Anime. That wonderous creation that allows members of reality to take a break and wonder; “What would it be like if I could travel through time…and then blow it up?” It doesn’t even have to be that complicated, perhaps one simply wishes to witness a touching story that sees two star crossed lovers come together and make it work. Or, should romance lie beyond your collection of interests, simply watch a monster fight someone whose strength allows them to punch a building clean in half. That being said, each year bestows upon the world a very particular set of series, some which fall to obscurity and others who remain within the minds of viewers for time undetermined. 2016 was of course no exception and a select few of its offerings lie below… AOTY – ERASED There was no anime like ERASED in 2016. None dared to be so bold. None could follow the level of brilliance it achieved and few even tried. Tomohiko Ito may be more popularly known as the man who directed Sword …

Premiere Visual Released For Upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Live-Action Film

Now that the Anime adaptation of Hirohiko Araki’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable has reached it’s finale, fans of the long-running series are thirsty for more. Most are anticipating the release of a preview for the upcoming Part 5: Vento Aureo, whereas others are looking towards the realm of live-action cinema to scratch their itch. Luckily famed director Takashi Miike and crew have exactly what what we need to drive away any withdrawal symptoms that come with a lack of JJBA content. Across the new years celebrations the very first visual for the upcoming live-action JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure film, which will be focussing solely on Part 4: Diamond Is Unbreakable, was released online. This image shows lead actor Kento Yamazaki in full costume as the story’s protagonist Josuke Higashikata. The most prominent reaction to this visual reveal is that of a positive one, with many saying that it is as close as a filmmaker is going to get to recreating his look from the Manga. It’s great to see that many are fans of …

These New JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Snacks Will Make You Feel Great!

Most good arcades will often offer up something along the lines of snack food to fuel players as they work hard attempting to land a high scores on their favorite games. Maybe you’re a fan of Tekken and need more wins on your record, so you head into your local arcade, slap down your Banapassport card, and there appears your modified Devil Jin with 299 wins and only a single loss. You now want to try add to that number by ghosting as many of the other players looking for a rumble as you can, but how can you be expected to nail combos with an empty stomach? You can’t! That’s ludicrous! You go searching for something quick, close, and easy to settle the hunger pains. If you’re a young man or woman living in Japan that can relate to what I’ve just said, then you’ll be delighted to know that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure have collaborated with Umaibo snacks and are releasing their own limited line of Beef Tongue flavoured puffed corn treats across the great …

RUMOUR: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders To Be Adapted Into A Live-Action Film

Let’s take a trip back in time, just for a moment, to the year 2012: Women-centric blog Cyzo Daily News reported on a rumour that saw Japanese Idol, Singer, Actor, and all around good looking guy Jun Matsumoto up for the role of Jotaro Kujo in the then-unconfirmed live-action film adaptation of Hirohiko Araki’s hit Manga series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. This rumour didn’t necessarily gain any traction, with most JJBA-fans brushing it off as nothing more than how it was marketed; a rumour. Now let’s jump back to present day; it’s the year 2016, and this story revolving around the possible live-action Stardust Crusaders film has, once again, resurfaced. This time, much like the last, another actor has been highlighted as the possible number one candidate to take on the role of story crutch Jotaro Kujo, his name is Kento Yamazaki and, much like his predecessor, he is also known for being incredibly handsome…he’s also a pretty good actor, let’s not forget that. For the second time, this “news” has first been reported on Cyzo …

First Thoughts: “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable” – Shine On, You Crazy Diamond!

Here we go, the part we’ve all been waiting for! DIO is dead, the Tarrot Cards have been ripped to shreds, Old Man Joseph is off having affairs, and Jotaro Kujo is now a Marine Biologist. Everything you thought was insane about the previous installments of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure can be tossed out the proverbial window, because what’s coming up is crazier than anything we’ve ever seen before. Things are changing, baby! No longer will Stands be named after Tarrot Cards, so if you thought Tower Of Grey was too odd of a name, then you better prepare yourself for the incredibly original Red Hot Chilli Pepper; a name only one letter away from a copyright lawsuit. We’re no longer following the Juvenile Delinquent Jotaro Kujo, instead this part will focus on a character the likes of which we’ve never seen before; a Juvenile Delinquent…with a heart of gold. This new Anime will not feature a mangey mutt, nor a senile old man, but instead it will play host to some of the more interesting characters you’ve ever …

Shine On! JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part Four Promo Released

Oh JoJo, that series that reminds us that not all families are conventional and that sometimes it takes the help of friends to see your goals through to the end. Of course it helps if said friends and family possesses tremendous abilities that skirt the border of reality, time, space, fiction and good sense, but the message of companionship is still underlying…I think. I’ll admit, things got a little hazy for me when the Stardust Crusaders had to fight the Sun, but that’s a story for another time. Much to the joy of Diamond Is Unbreakable fans, David Production has continued their JJBA streak by revealing their plans for the first ever anime adaptation of said fourth part of the ever expanding epic of the Joestar bloodline. Jumping ahead a little from the previous part, Diamond Is Unbreakable takes place in 1999, continuing the trend of progressive eras in the JoJo franchise (keeping in mind that Part One took place in the 1880s). With new JoJo Josuke Higashikata at the helm, the series will follow …

It’s getting very close to the release date of the upcoming game, and Bandai Namco Entertainment aren’t even close to being done with the slow release of their fifty plus character-specific game trailers, so they’ve had to speed up the process and release two at once every day.

It seems as though Bandai Namco Entertainment have decided that one character trailer each day simply isn’t enough, and considering the fact that the game isn’t too long from getting at release, it’s obvious that there won’t be enough time to cover each of the fifty plus characters that are set to feature in this game.

SnapThirty Crowns Best Dog In Japanese Pop Culture

For years, pop culture fanatics have been at war with each other. Countless relationships have been ruined over talks of who is best this and who is best that. For example: While some of us tend to think Persona 4’s Chie is Best Girl, others may believe it is Sword Art Online’s Asuna. The problem with this ongoing debate is that it is one fought entirely on a biased foundation, meaning that there can never be a proper resolution. This conflict is one that seems as though it is never going to end, but us here at SnapThirty want you all to know that we will be the ones to bring peace back into the pop culture world…one character at a time. On episode 43 of the SnapThirty podcast, the boys decided that they were going to run a series of tournament brackets to decide once and for all who from Japanese pop culture truly are the best of the best. While Best Girl is indeed the most sought after title in all of history, …

Speedwagon, Jotaro Kujo,Okuyasu Nijimura, Bruno Buccellati, Joseph Joestar, Dio Brando, Gyro Zeppeli, Josuke Higashikata, Enrico Pucci, Rudol Von Stroheim, and Trish Una. I’m the type of person who always thinks about why an antagonist is just so…evil. What made them this way? When I think about the Pillar Men from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part II: Battle Tendency, I don’t necessarily ask myself why they’re so darn evil. I feel like if I were stuck in stone pillars for thousands of years, I’d be pretty damn pissed too! Out of the four main antagonists of Battle Tendency, Esidisi was by …

Today’s character-specific Eyes Of Heaven trailer focuses on one of the many memorable gang members from the series’ Part V storyline Vento Aureo with a strange ability that can work well in almost every single situation…maybe apart from one. This young “Mafiosa“, a girl named Trish Una, is part of Bruno Buccelati’s gang, and the daughter of the original boss of the mafia family; the Passione. Her stand, Spice Girl, can manipulate matter in a very …

There’s nothing more advanced than Nazi technology…apparently. When the world is threatened by three naked Egyptian men born from stone pillars for a purpose which is still unbeknownst to me, who can you call to defend it? Obviously…the Nazis, and there’s one regime-lover who stands above all others thanks to the millions of dollars pumped into developing technology that could be used to replace his lost organs with countless deadly weapons. His name is Rudol Von Stroheim, and according …

Today’s video highlights a character that, long after DIO’s death, still wishes to see his divine plan through to the very end. First appearing in Part VI: Stone Ocean, Enrico Pucci is a priest at the Green Dolphin Street Prison of which main character Jolyne Cujoh is a prisoner. Being a devout follower of DIO, Enrico Pucci has a mental state that is, let’s say, less-than-stable. This man will do anything to live life according to the word of DIO, …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Gyro Zeppeli Character Battle Trailer Released

In the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure universe there’s this ancient technique called the Ripple that allows any master of the practice to harness the power of the sun to defeat their foes with an array of interesting and incredible weird techniques. Jonathan and Joseph Joestar both know their way around the supernatural art, as well as others like Will and Caesar Zeppeli who, unfortunately, both died for the sake of their individual Joestar family members. After a handful of story arcs, each differing greatly from the last, the world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is re-written. No longer is there such thing as the Ripple, but there is something that supersedes it…a little technique called Spin. You know what’s going on, right? Come on, surely you do!

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Dio Brando Character Battle Trailer Released

I’ve done about seven of these articles at the time of writing this one. I try my hardest to put a little bit of character specific flair into each and every one by referencing their personality types, battle tactics, etc., but with Dio Brando…all I can do is make the same jokes everyone else has already made. You know the whole “it was I, Dio” thing, yeah, it’s kind of gotten old, and yet here I am fighting with myself because, well…damn, I want to make some of those jokes too, so here I go: [Insert Dio Meme Here] Bandai Namco Entertainment are doing this interesting thing wherein which they’re periodically releasing character-specific trailers in the lead-up to their upcoming action title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven. So far we’ve seen about seven of them, of which I’ll make sure to specify in the latter sections of this article, and we’re only going to be seeing more and more, considering there are over fifty playable characters, and I’m fairly certain they want to get …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Joseph Joestar Character Battle Trailer Released

Tank top, check. Headband, check. Loose, flowing scarf…double check. Well damn, now you’re looking like Joseph Joestar! Bandai Namco Entertainment, to celebrate the upcoming release of their newest JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting title Eyes Of Heaven, are periodically releasing different, character-specific gameplay trailers to show audiences just who they’ll be able to play as once the new game comes out and, of course, simply to build hype. The list so far is; Jonathan Joestar, Robert E.O. Speedwagon, Jotaro Kujo, Okuyasu Nijimura, and Bruno Buccellati, with the newest addition to the short but growing list being none other than Battle Tendency’s protagonist; Joseph Joestar. Oh my God! The masterful Ripple user has returned for Eyes Of Heaven stronger and more flamboyant than he’s ever been before! Whether he’s using his faithful tommy gun, his Cracker Volley technique, or the Ripple as a whole, chances are…it’s going to mean a bed time for anyone going head-to-head with this slab of man meat. Strong enough to survive the Pillar Men onslaught as a youngster, Joseph Joestar has had …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Bruno Buccellati Character Battle Trailer Released

By now I’m sure you know the story, but I’ll reiterate quickly for the sake of consistence: Bandai Namco Entertainment, in the lead up to the release of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven, are systematically releasing character-specific battle trailers that showcase the abilities of each and every individual addition to the new game’s roster. So far, we’ve seen trailers for Jonathan Joestar, Robert E.O.Speedwagon, Jotaron Kujo, and Okuyasu Nijimura, but today’s video focuses on none other than the zipper man himself; Bruno Buccellati. This young gangster made his first appearance in the one-shot Manga “Jolyne, Fly High With Gucchi” but became a fully fleshed-out character in the pages of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Part 4: Vento Aureo alongside main character Giorno Giovanna. His stand, Sticky Fingers, has the strange but applicable ability to zip open portals into any physical matter by manifesting a zipper over the area he wishes. His ability can be used to hide, making it easy for him to get the drop on his enemy, but it isn’t just this strange …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Okuyasu Nijimura Character Battle Trailer Released

I would say “make space for a new character” but it seems as though this particular juvenile delinquent can do that himself. As you know; Bandai Namco Entertainment are building hype for the upcoming release of their latest JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting title Eyes Of Heaven. In the lead-up to the game’s release, the publisher is releasing character-specific trailers that will show most, if not all, of those who will feature on the roster for the new game, making sure to give the proper spotlight to those who maybe don’t often get it. So far, Bandai Namco Entertainment have given us trailers for Jonathan Joestar, Robert E.O. Speedwagon, and Jotaro Kujo. Today’s trailer focuses on one of the main characters from Part 4 of the series Diamond Is Unbreakable; Okuyasu Nijimura. This young man is an asset to anyone fighting by his side. His Stand, The Hand, has the ability to remove space from the universe, meaning that even long-rang fighters can’t get a chance at praying on what they though was this fighter’s weakness. …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Jotaro Kujo Character Battle Trailer Released

Bandai Namco Entertainment, to celebrate the upcoming release of their brawler title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, have been systematically releasing gameplay trailers focusing on specific characters from the series’ long-lineage. The first two that were released highlight the battle prowess of both Jonathan Joestar and Robert E.O. Speedwagon, and the latest character battle trailer to be released focuses entirely on the most popular JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure protagonist, the ever-broody Jotaro Kujo. Now I honestly don’t think I have to explain much regarding the main character of Stardust Crusaders because, well…everyone knows who Jotaro Kujo is. He truly is one of the most well-known Shonen Jump characters of all time and his presence is so impactful, it’s hard not to have his name burned into the side of your brain. With his Stand Star Platinum at his side, this juvenile delinquent can pretty much trump any adversary that stands in his way, even the all powerful DIO, whom he decimated with a single punch…practically.

You know that there’s another JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure game coming out right? Yeah, I thought so. Anyone who’s anyone know’s that! It’s called JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven and it’s a follow up to the previously released PlayStation 3 fighting game All-Star Battle.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part Four: Diamond Is Unbreakable Anime Green-Lit

We all knew this was coming, because it was teased at the very end of the Stardust Crusaders Anime season, but it still gives a nice warm feeling just knowing that Part Four of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Manga series, Diamond Is Unbreakable, is confirmed for an Anime adaptation sometime in the near future. Over in Japan, Tokyo to be specific, on the Saturday that has just passed, an event was held titled “The Last Crusaders” which, as you may think, had nothing to do with the Indiana Jones movie of similar name. No, it was a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure event that basically celebrated all things Stardust Crusaders. While many exciting things happened over the span of the event’s full day, the most exciting is absolutely that of the Diamond Is Unbreakable Anime adaptation confirmation which was delivered to the audience, and now us living everywhere BUT Japan, with a teaser trailer that shows absolutely nothing of the upcoming Anime but has worked to excited people from all walks of life living all across the world. …

This Heavenly Form Of DIO Is Set To Feature In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven

The concept of a God is already quite frightening. While it gives many religious-types around the world a large sense of solace, simply pondering the metaphysical presence of an unearthly deity is mind-boggling. Now think about a God that would let an A-Grade piece of Vampiric garbage like Dio Brando into Heaven…is that a God you want to follow? Hell no! Why? Because if it has let Dio through those pearly gates and into Nirvana, I can imagine who else is waiting up there for our arrival. The upcoming Bandai Namco Entertainment title JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven is a follow up fighting game to the previously released All-Star Battle, both of which allow players to slot themselves into the shoes of their favorite JJBA characters and duke it out Stand-style in ways only the character cast of this oddball series knows. The Japanese pop culture magazine Ultra Jump has this week revealed a brand-new character that will be playable in the upcoming game, and while he is technically brand-new…he’s a guy we’ve seen …

Oh My God! – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season One DVD to Release with English Dub

You read correctly JJBA fans, apparently the North American DVD release of the PHantom Blood/Battle Tendency hybrid that was Season One is set to ship with an English dub. Whilst this is far from unusual for an anime home release, this particular dub is remarkably light of detail as of now. In fact, the only information regarding an English audio version come from Season Two, of which three dub teaser episodes were released. Regardless, Right Stuf (an online anime store) has officially updated its description of the upcoming release to include English as a selectable audio option, following confirmation from publisher Warner. Unfortunately, that’s all of the information that is known at this point, with the actual list of voice actors remaining elusive. Regardless, look forward to the upcoming vocals and relive the beginning of one of Japanese pop cultures longest running and most flamboyantly masculine of series. -30-

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Robert E.O. Speedwagon Announced as Playable Character

Oh boy! Oh no! Oh…Oh shit! I can’t contain my excitement! The latest edition of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine has today revealed three more playable characters set to appear in the upcoming “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” tag-team fighting title “Eyes Of Heaven” and while two already featured in this games predecessor, the other didn’t and he’s the most exciting addition of all! Joining the updated roster for the new game will be the Joestar that started it all, Jonathan, alongside his mentor and trainer Will A.

Speedwagon who has also been announced as another playable character. This. Is. AWESOME! The assumption is that Zeppeli and Jonathan will fight much the same way as they did in the previous game so let’s not focus on them. Instead let’s talk about just how our friend and my personal hero Mr. Speedwagon is going to …
