Le bizzarre avventure di GioGio: Vento Aureo Anime (JoJo P5) |OT| Sono cazzate, ma ci credo!

If we're just talking about the Jojos' stands, then yes. However, I'd still say Kira has the most op stand power I've seen so far (I'm anime only).
Id still say Time Stop given constant practice and use would probably be the most OP, as Stopping Time for any chunk of time breaks every stand power. Like, Purple Haze would probably still affect SHA as gravity did. But a Virus can't do anything in stopped time.

Jotaro just got dumb and refused to use it so he can only pull it off for a second, whereas if Dio had succeeded and continued past part 3, by part 4 he'd probably be able to stop time for minutes.

And minutes in Jojo time can be nearly two episodes.

Yeah I actually can't see time based powers not being the most OP shit ever.
There's a reason DIO did fuck all for P3, and Jotaro just watched dolphins for most of P4.
Starfish. Jotaro watched starfish.

But in part 4 his time stop ability is less powerful. One is the stands are way stronger than in Part 3 and two Jotaro's limit has become shorter.

We also see it with koichi in part 5. Too much bullshittery he can't handle.

Koichi lucky he left.

At least Araki put a "limit" to the time stop ability (barring monologue time of course :P)
Funny you should mention that, because I feel like monologue time is the actual limit of the time stop ability. That's why Jotaro was damaged more by a rat than by DIO. DIO has to monologue, because that's his limitation as a villain. He's playing a game where his own self-determined win condition is people being shocked at his amazing power and listening to him gloat before they die. As a wild animal, the rat just instinctively wants to kill its prey as quickly as possible, hopefully without ever even being noticed. Which is stronger, the rat or DIO? The rat, obviously.

In a story where conflict resolution is based on mind games, you can have a never ending escalation of villain power, because no matter what kind of horrible psychic death lasers they get, their inherent psychological limitations will prevent them from utilizing them effectively. DIO desperately seeks the approval of people he considers his inferior. Yoshikage Kira wants to live a quiet life, but can't stop himself from doing things he knows will draw crazy, noisy, bizarre people towards him. The things that make them villains rigged the game against them from the start.

I am going to make a prediction - there's going to be an announcement considering the second cour OP this week

Also harsh but i get his veiwpoint

Man in the Mirror is a great fight but I think something missing compared to the previous fight is that Formaggio was really well represented because he subverted the "what does his stand do" by making it about Narancia's stand. His flashback and his motivations were also clear cut in the way that he was doing one out for the team even if it was for dubious reasons. He had a reason to live.

Illusio has no motivations of his own and he was literally a nobody. He had the will to live like Formaggio but the focus was much more on the Bruno gang than him so it wasn't as impactful.

I enjoy that they're keeping the streak of enemies that WILL go through any length to survive, no matter what they're losing in the process. The episode is also showing development when it comes to the gang and that was very cool. It was cool to see Abbachio honest to himself in that he won't allow himself getting bested by giogio

I know I'm late but I'm pretty sure it was explained that utilizing time stop puts a tremendous strain on Jotaro's heart. Dio, with his mock immortality, did not have to worry about that.

that episode was so bullshit and it’s part of the reason i love the show.

also uhh has there always been some content after the ending? i’ve been skipping the ED pretty much every week but decided to watch today and there was an extra scene.
Even though there was a "To Be Continued" at the end of episode 6 where Abbacchio and Buccellati took down Zucchero, there was still an after-credits sequence even after that

While this week is a recap episode so a 'break' of sorts, please DO NOT POST MANGA SPOILERS.
You can post stuff related to events up til the latest episode and even Part 1-4 manga stuff, but anything after that is big definitive NO.

At any rate

Golden Wind originally ran from 1995 to 1999, and that's as much as I dare Google about it, so about a third of the way through the story would be late 1996 or 1997. The biggest popular musical trend in 1996 seems to have been hip hop, so that seems like a good bet for a new OP style.

Of course, outside of hip hop, the elephant in the room when it comes to popular Western music in 1996 is the Spice Girls, but that's a bit unlikely.

But then, everything about JoJo's is a bit unlikely.

Still, surely not. Even Araki wouldn't request something like this.

...Would he?

Our ending theme is about getting horny

That was obviously just a way to write Jotaro to not be ridiculously OP after SC. I was just exaggerating

Where did you hear that ? He put his heart on arrest in the Dio's battle yet still didn't hesitate to use time stop multiple times afterwards. I don't think that's it. He just never trained his time stop and it decreased over time

I don't remember where I heard it, and as stated above it's pretty much a narrative device to keep power creep in check. But to go along with the narrative device, I don't think it's unfair to say that Dio was a "do or die" situation with the world's wellbeing at stake, and Jotaro would have tried to defeat Dio even if he died in the process. It's also possible that he didn't understand that it was bad for his heart health until he tried experimenting with the ability's limits during peacetime. Which would be why he stopped practicing.

Jotaro mentions at the start of Part 4 that the last time that he used time stop was against Dio.

Does anyone else have a serious problem and is borderline disgusted with the braids Bruno has on the top of his head, it just really didn't translate well to the anime.

Which is hilarious because he uses it immediately in Morioh for a super blase reason.
Punching Josuke in the face was obviously worth it to him. Such a nice punch too. Unless you’re referring to picking up Koichi’s books. I’m pretty sure he just moved really fast for that.

Literally no idea what you're talking about
The weird circles on Brunos head is what I mean. It just seems really weird and would of preferred how they look in the manga but since I have not read the manga I only go off the anime and since the lack of detail is expected it just seems like weird cylinders ejecting from his head. But it may just be me, its just unsightly and distracting to me but nobody elses hair bothers me.

You can't be serious, now you are making me feel crazy. Bruno has a row of 6 circular hair braids on the tippity top of his head in the anime but in the manga it is better defined and are clearly braids, but since the anime cant be as detailed they just look like circular bumps on the top of his head. I even had to read his wiki to understand what the hell I was looking at, but they are just hair braids. They look way better in the manga.

Eh, he might have just meant around that time. You know there's wiggle room with these things. Could've tried it once or twice the day after Dio, been like "oh shit now that I try this without adrenaline this actually makes me feel like I'm shaving time off my lifespan, better relegate this to emergency use only".

I literally can't see a difference
