    Best description ever, short and to the point.

    I noticed that the episode censored the meaty-end of a severed limb and a hand coming out of the guy's back, but they didn't censor the broken turtle? Double standard, much? (Then again, if the turtle exploded, they might've censored it--I honestly didn't want to see that if that happened.)

    Think we'll get more censored smoking again, or was that only Jotaro and Josuke's not that much of a delinquent to smoke?

    JoJo Saturdays are the best Saturdays, hopefully this age we live in of good JoJo adaptions can continue for a long while yet.

    Pretty sure it is really just a double standard, censors in anime seem to be more strict if it's humans on the receiving end of any kind of gore.

    I heard that they have 39 episodes scheduled for it. I hope that it isn't the total episode count because Part 4 has more chapters than Part 3, and I hope they don't cut out much, but we'll see

    Maybe it'll be a split-cour like with Part 3, and that's how long the first half will be. At least with Part 3, they split it accordingly with the journey to Egypt, then the Egypt arc itself with 24 episode each. 39 episodes for the first, then 24+ the next sounds plausible with that in mind if Part 4 could be as easily split as its predecessor.

    WELL THEN

    Our ED is "I Want You" by Savage Garden. I somehow have never heard this song before, but I think it kind of fits in a musical sense. The atmosphere seems like it works nicely for a small town full of weird happenings. I guess.

    Let's hope that they use Queen - Killer Queen for Kira Yoshikage's arc. But I could see them using Sheer Heart Attack for an ED by then as well. Only time would tell.

    It's felt kind of questionable in terms of characterization that Joseph Joestar would cheat on his wife with a Japanese college student. Isn't that illegal or something? I guess his middle name is Roshi

    The Joestar line is kind of wonky. Part 2 is the previous hero's grandson, Part 3 is the previous hero's grandson, Part 4 is the previous hero's uncle, Part 5 is the previous hero's biological great-uncle and Part 6 is the previous hero's biological great-great-great neice

    There's something stupidly cool about a Stand that consists of basically G.I. Joe toy soldiers.

    Bad Company's a really interesting Stand considering Keicho couldn't receive any pain after a few of the "toy soldiers" were crushed. Too bad the western localization dubbed it "Worse Company".

    To be frank, the jokes fans made about it were funny even though they were predictable.

    Meanwhile, "Chili Pepper" was used--probably better than "Shining Diamond" if you ask me. Although I find it a little funny that an electrical stand wasn't called something like "Electric Boogaloo". That was bad, I'll see myself out.

    Araki's highly inspired by western influence, so it'd make sense for him to call it "Red Hot Chili Pepper" in the original manga, minus the western localization which prevented any copyright violations from the band. Even more the reason as to why it took a 25 year old series to get an anime adaptation at all. But I getcha-

    The western references are a little bit obscure in Part 4, but that's only my opinion since most of the Stand names (which are references in themselves, like said) didn't stand out to me. Achtung Baby (U2 Album, obviously) is in the series, so that's pretty cool.
