I actually stumbled across this installment of the the series before I realized there were parts before it. It truly is a bizarre story, but it is very engaging. It always keeps you on your toes, the art really isn't that bad and I'm always left wanting more.

While I waited for the next chapter to come out I backtracked to the previous stories and I don't think you necessarily have to read the others to enjoy JoJolion. It was a little confusing at first, but then again you kind of have the same experience with Josuke as he learns more about stands and tries to recover his memory. Regardless, you should read all of them.

This is such a great adventure that feels a little psychological/strategic at points while you try to keep up with the characters as they try to get themselves out of trouble. 10/10 for characters, plot and art.

1st dont try this unless you actualy like the 7 other histories before it, and with that you must like the artwork too... as all the chars in this manga... will make lots of weird gay poses not in a sick way tho. For those who dont like the artwork... think a little do you think that something thats been running for 30 years can be measured only by its art?... well this isnt a picture or a painting its an animated history so.

I'm a fan of the JoJo series, and personally I love the art style and story of Jojolion and Steel Ball Run. For those of you who rate this negatively without first trying out the other installments in this series, shame on you.

In order to make any sense of JoJolion, you really need to know a thing or two about the JoJo series as a whole, and preferably have read some of the other parts. This is the 8th part of a long-running series (over 30 years now!), and the second part in the rebooted universe, starting with Steel Ball Run.

I won't disagree that the art needs a serious kick in the pants, but the over-the-top elements of the story are completely in line with prior parts of the series, and in fact make tons more sense if you're familiar with them.

Basically, it's not quite meant for newcomers to the series, which is itself very love-it-or-hate it, but if you're already a fan, you should enjoy it!

As the title says, this manga is about Jojo's Bizarre adventure. As for who Jojo is, or any of the characters for that matter, I have no clue. Right from the start we're thrust into the... universe (?) of this manga where characters are thrown at us from every angle. We're taken aback by the sheer oddness of... everything; to the art stye (where hair defies physics and people can function just fine with broken spines), to the fashion, to the odd behaviour of the people within the story, to

four testicles
, and to the homogeneously androgynous characters.
I'll admit that I haven't quite scraped the tip of the first chapter as every time I try it I'm left dazed and disoriented by the content.
As such, I can't really give it a rating, but know that when you pick up Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, the title certainly isn't false advertisement.

very rarely does artwork alone keep me away from a manga but this is definitely an exception. the only words to describe the art, that come to mind are: vomit... looks like the artist was on lsd. the artwork is definitely not suited for manga
