Later, his mother gains a Stand, and becomes sick.

Plot Summary: The year is 1987 and 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo finds himself suddenly plagued by a ghost-like entity. Jotaro’s grandfather Joseph Joestar, a veteran of a fight to save humanity fifty years prior, arrives with his own supernatural aura and explains that this power, known as a “Stand,” physically manifests its user’s spirit and can be controlled by its user at will. The sudden emergence of these Stands is revealed to be caused by the revival of the megalomaniacal vampire DIO (the Joestar’s longtime enemy) whose awakening from his century-long slumber has triggered Stands to awaken down the Joestar family line, including in Jotaro’s mother whose uncontrollable Stand will ultimately kill her in a few weeks’ time. Jotaro, Joseph, and their allies have fifty days to locate DIO (using their Stands to thwart DIO’s network of devoted Stand-user minions along the way) and eliminate DIO himself in order to save Jotaro’s mother and prevent DIO’s ambitions of world domination.

Plot Summary: After 30 grueling days of fighting off wave after wave of assassins sent by the megalomaniacal vampire DIO (all the while traveling by plane, train, and automobile from Japan, through Southeast Asia, and across the Middle East), Jotaro and his allies have made it at last to Egypt where DIO lies in wait. DIO, striving to end the Joestar line that has stood in his way for 100 years, sends his final and most fervent team of Stand-user followers, the 9 Egyptian Gods, to eliminate Jotaro and his allies. Jotaro and his party now have only two weeks to make their way to DIO’s hideout in Cairo and eliminate him before Jotaro’s mother succumbs to DIO’s curse.

Plot Summary: Fresh from surviving his adventures in Morioh, Stand user and Joestar ally Koichi Hirose is touching down in Naples, Italy to discover a man known as Haruno Shiobana, who may well be the inheritor of a truly terrifying legacy. Though he now calls himself Giorno Giovanna and makes a living from petty thievery, there is no mistaking the regal bearing and cunning that mark his bloodline, or the natural Stand affinity that he’s already begun to harness. Whatever he may call himself, Giorno Giovanna’s parentage mark him as a true threat - for he is the son of Dio Brando, and no son of Dio could possibly live quietly on this earth.

What Dio did to that dog, I would love to to to him! What a rotten individual. And I’m sure it will only get worse.

Episode 3 –

spoiler

So, the mask turned Dio into a vampire. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. But of course he’s immortal now. And he can make more vampires. Interesting too that not even fire can destroy him, but considering his last experiment, sunlight can. JoJo thinks he’s killed Dio, but of course he isn’t dead. I wonder what will kill this monster, if anything.

Break Planned in “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders” Anime

July 31, 2014 10:56am CDT
Also reiterated that an adaptation of part four has not been greenlit

So what is the deal with this dub? It’s out quite early and its intent is shrouded in mystery. They promoted it again at Otakon but with little fanfare and structure, by which I mean that it wasn’t an event framed by an obvious industry interest, like the (much worse) Kill La Kill dub.

The dub was hilarious. The show was begging for an all-out Stephen Foster dub (Swasey and Illich…) but what it got was much better than what I expected.

BTW, if the guy who plays the “Piccolo” figure in this doesn’t watch out then he’ll be typecast :wink:
