I'm not a big fan of Giorno's stand in general. It seems overpowered at times and a bit too deus ex machina? Granted I read part 5 more than a decade ago so I don't remember too much of it.
Gold Experience is hilariously bullshit. It's probably a make or break for some people, but I love it.

I dunno why folks get caught up on giorno's healing in the baby face fight. Like they preface that power up a lot and actually go out of their way yo explain it.


The actual problem with the Babyface fight is everything around when he loses his arm. The pacing and paneling of that is weird. Really the paneling of that entire fight is super odd.


Like I legit think the first half of that fight is fantastic(the actual confrontation I mean.) Cause its perfectly paced and builds toward the reveal perfectly. Its after that where things bresk down.

Gold Experience is fine, Gold Experience Requiem though is a straight WAT though. If people are having issues now, hooboy will they when we get to the body part replacement, and the ending is going to turn off so many people.

Giving life either gives you so much life that you fucking die, zombifies you or super charges your senses...
it depends on the strength and duration of the life pulse. One quick, strong pulse of life is like heroin and supercharges the senses. A more dull, but longer pulsing of life accelerates the aging process.

I hope they allocate zero time and budget into the babyface arc and just dump it all into the White Album fight. That arc is just Giorno, Ghiacco, and Mista brute forcing the shit out of their stands and I love it for that

Snowboarding on a car with a snowboard made out of fucking grass. I love both fights to be honest.

I was wondering if you guys could help. I'm going to use Mutants and Masterminds (a point buy make your own power d20 system) and do it with stands.

I want ones that are misleading, either Canon or made up. For instance zipper man is cool because the way the power is presented it could be difficult to come up with attacks.

I don't care if it's a spoiler power or anything. I have 3 players. Personally I really like fisherman or whatever pecsi stand is called because of it's unique presentation and interesting power potential.

Thanks!

There's a stand called Dragon's Dream that is quite unique.

Looks like they added a scene of Nero looking for information about the boss' past and origins in the new episode. I was surprised to see someone with him and then I figured that would be the one reason he appears.

Tarot Woman from the same album would have been amazing for the second half of Part 3m
Also the most bullshit healing power is still Jolyne's that's the definition of "You're not even trying to justify that one."
You mean her string powers? Yeah, they are pretty OP.

Yeah, I wondered about that. Who was this guy? Why add him?

It's also weird Rizotto was at the train station and discovered Pericolo's body... Of course he's one of the most popular characters and he needs more screen time, but did he need an extra accomplice? Are they going to add an explanation on how he was on the island in the end even though they only got there via a plane that blew up midway?

I'd argue that only 4 of Stone Ocean's fights are legit bad.

A lot of them are really fucking weird, but they're good.
To me, the only good fight in part 6 (FF) is ruined because they decide to let FF live. It would have made narrative sense for Jolyne to kill it there, and it would have gotten killed in a smart and creative way. And I say that while FF and Jolyne are the only two characters of Stone Ocean that I like.
What other fights in SO are not outright bad? Planet Vibes and Dragon's Dream, maybe? Limp Bizkit and Highway to Hell? They are the least bad fights of the part, and I'd rank them at the same level as... Krafwerk?
Anything that involves Anna Sui, Weather, Emporio and Dio's sons is terrible. Hermes is underused and should have heroically died after Limp Bizkit. Pucci is a mess and a waste of a fantastic design. The character arcs are either wrong or lame or undercooked.
Even part 1 is immensely better than that whole mess, and that's not even getting into the art. Araki was in a weird mental space during that time...

Mobius Strip Jolyne and Literally on fire Jolyne were the moments where I was like "Fuck, this is literally the coolest JoJo." by MILES.

A man named Yoshihiro gives a boy an ability that involves rock-paper-scissors...

Togashi must've said to himself, "Well, I pretty much have to at this point, right?" lol

Though he did enjoy using janken here and there in YYH:

Man after next's week episode (which will be good but still) the next 3 episodes are going to be amazing to see pepole react to.

Also you know where they are going to end the episode after White Album on (is it it okay if i post this image. It's from the JoJo Website?)
