This anime changes the main character in every season. So I am going to talk about each season!
Season 1 part 1 : Phantom Blood
This story starts in Great Britain. The main character is Jonathan Joestar who is from a noble family. His nickname is JoJo who is an honest and pure young guy. He meets this guy Dio Brando who has low status but has big ambitions. He starts to live in JoJo’s house. He is jealous of JoJo because JoJo has everything and lives his life as being naive. One day Dio gets a mask that is made of stone, and can create a vampire. Dio schemes a bad idea with the stone mask. To stop him, he trains to obtain special ability under an Italian guy who is Will・A・Zeppeli. Now he faces Dio and vampires. Can JoJo stop Dio?
Season 1 part 2 : Battle Tendency
It starts in the U.S., and the main character is Joseph Joestar who is the grandson of Jonathan Joestar. He is good at reading people’s thoughts but is kind of a sly guy lol. He has a buddy, his name is Caesar, and is the grandson of Will・A・Zeppeli. At the same time, supernatural beings which are called Pillar Men are awakened. Caesar and Joseph will face the Pillar Men.
Season 2 : Stardust Crusaders
This stage of the story is in Japan. The daughter of Joseph Joestar Holly married a Japanese man. They have a son who is a high school student named Jotaro Kujo. He is a perfect guy that is intelligent and strong like a hero lol. Anyway the special power which Joestar family has is becoming a problem, they are not able to handle the power, Jotaro’s mother will be in danger because of the revival of Dio. Can he put Dio to rest in peace again??
Season 3 : Diamond Is Unbreakable
This season is in Japan too. Jotaro Kujo goes to the place of Morio cho. He meets Josuke Higashikata who is a high school student. As a matter of fact, Josuke is an illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar! Josuke is unlike Jotaro. He is not a model of a superhero, so there are his friends will back Josuke up. Since Josuke has a bloodline of the Joestar family, he can use the special ability and fight bad guys who also have a special ability. To find out why there are so many people who can use special abilities in this place and to protect his place, Josuke and his friends continue to fight!
Season 1 part 1
Dio Brando – As using Joestar family, he tries to be a richest man in the world. He schemes wrong things all the time. He is nothing but dirty person!
Jonathan Joestar – He is a gentleman from rich family. He will be taken advantage of his pure heart by Dio when his young time but as he grows up, he will face Dio in a battle.
Season 1 part 2
Joseph Joestar – He is the grandson of Jonathan Joestar. He is a smart person and able to think to choose what to do in a situation. He makes a strategy so sometimes he runs away but that is his strategy. It might look like he is coward but not. He is going to have to fight Pillar Men!
Jotaro Kujo – He is the grandson of Joseph Joestar. He is a poker face guy. He is popular among girls but he gets annoyed by them. Since the revival of Dio, he will go to Egypt to fight the enemy of destiny, Dio!
Josuke Higashikata – He is an illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar. He cherishes his hairstyle. lol If somebody speaks bad of his hairstyle, he would get mad! Watch your mouth!

Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
When I started to watch this anime, it said JoJo so I thought JoJo goes around the world to fight people, but my guess was not right. (；・∀・) But each of the main character’s is named Jo and Jo. Even the Japanese name too. The only difference is Josuke Higashikata doesn’t have 2 Jo? Actually, he has Jo and Jo. Josuke in Kanji is 仗助. 仗 is Jo and 助 is suke. 助 can be pronounced as Jo lol. So all of the main characters are JoJo! I didn’t realize this until writing this post….. ━━━(ﾟДﾟ;)━━━
I started to know why this anime has become so popular. I think this anime is so characteristic. Because all of the main characters are from the same family tree and the story goes all over the world but everywhere they go, at last, their thing always come back at one spot which is their family line. They are proud of being who they are, and also, they suffer from their special ability. It is like a real life story! Some people look like they don’t have any issues but inside of them, they have. They struggle with what they have but also they shine with their ability. Mishi doesn’t have anything to show off so I can’t feel that…. lol
Anyway, I think this anime can last forever if the writer of JoJo wants this anime to last forever! The story won’t end! As long as there is drama somewhere in this world!
Talking about graphic, It is always up to you what kind of anime to like, For that reason it could be the story, songs, atmosphere, or whatever. But this anime has a unique graphic. I think it is a cool touch of graphics, but I guess some people don’t like that. What do you think? This is the one of the reasons why JoJo has become so popular I think!
According to the Manga, there are more stories in JoJo world. I hope we can get to see more seasons later on! Let’s call it a day today because I will go and change my name to have Jo and Jo somewhere on my name lol. See you laterヾ(˹ᆺ˺✿)ﾉﾞ!
