  • I remember the time I was exposed to JoJo for the first time... it was in the game JoJo's Venture.

    "What the hell is Benimaru doing in a CAPCOM game? And why does he have a knight beside him?"

    • I was watching a clip from the OVA

      "Why is Kenshiro in a trench coat & not using Hokuto Shinken?" & also "Indiana Jones looks a lot better as a old man than in the movie"

    • I LOLed at the Indiana Jones thing. Somehow I think Joseph's Indiana Jones look was intentional. :P

    • i think it was mudah.swf/wryyyy, then (much) later i heard they cracked CPS3 on MAME, so i got stweet fighta 3 and heritage for the future and tried to get others. i think after playing jojo a bit i'd hyped myself up enough to go for the manga, but i think i started from the start. i caught up near the end of SBR, i remember being spoiled about 2nd diego. i was like.. 18.. so it was appropriate

    • I found a post on a blog about the longest mangas ever to not have an anime. It talked about JoJo and it's references and i started reading it because it looked fun and bizarre lol.

      But in a really short time, like days later, before i could even finish part 1 the anime came out.

    • My first exposure was some random "WRYYYYYY" meme on 4chan around 2006 or 2007.  I had no idea it was from JoJo.

    • My first exposure was when I showed to my best friend my idea of the golden spiral of fibonacci for a tattoo and he sent me the chapter in Steel Ball Run where Gyro explains Johnny how to fight according to the golden spiral.

    • legit^

      I think my first exposure was probably the mudah.swf and the whole wryyyyy meme in general. I wasn't sure what it was from until I was playing Jump Super Stars for DS and noticed that the character DIo used the exact same road roller attack. After realizing that's where the meme came from, I began reading the manga and marathoned the entire thing unintentionally.

    • I was first introduced through a let's player named Nakateleeli who did LP's of the ps2 Phantom Blood and Vento Aeuro games. It got me interested then and I have been following since. That was probably back in...08 or 09 I would say?

    • My first exposure was playing Jump Ultimate Stars on the DS. I thought Jotaro and Dio had really cool designs and extremly interesting movesets, however because I couldn't read japanese I had no idea what series they were from. Years later I saw a video on All Star Battle and after recognizing some of the characters I started watching the anime and reading the manga. I started around the time the Part 3 anime debuted and finished SBR sometime last November.

    • Late for this blog, but I figure I'd add my story. My first exposure was a "Top 20 Epically Cool Anime Characters" count down on YouTube. Dio Brando was on the list. Then a friend at school brought it up and mentioned that the Part 3 ending theme for the new anime was Walk Like an Egyptian by The Bangles--A song I seriously love. He kept bringing it up saying that "Everything comes back to Jojo" and tried to get me to watch it.  I almost added it to my "List of Anime to Never Watch Ever" because it bugged me so much; but then we made the deal that if he watched Princess Tutu I would watch this. . .I watched the OVA and it's spiraled out of control ever since, (and, yes, he did watch Tutu :D ).  The actual watching of the OVA took place in April or May. =w=

    • I've known the ZA WARUDO WRYYY meme, but never looked deeper, until someone kept mentioning JoJo.

    • Man, I love Capcom's old fighters.

      Hmmm, what's this? They've rereleased another one on XBLA? 16 POUNDS? Eh, I'll get the trial.

      Hmmmm, who's this cowboy guy?

      .....

      WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?

      [next day, browsing the cutting room floor]

      Hmmm. maybe I'll check the game out.

      It's based off a manga?

      And an anime's coming soon?

      [loads up bato.to]

      800+ chapters?

      [9 hours later]

      HORY SHIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET.

    • Back in about 2014 I walked past my sister watching this really colourful weird looking anime with brightly coloured muscly men. I asked "My dear sister what anime are you watching now?" She looked up at me and lifted her arms behind her head and said "JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE!" I looked at her as if she was mad. I looked at her screen and only now I know she was watching the first episode of Battle Tendency. I left the room because she was acting weirder than usual. A couple months later I saw her watching something else. I distinctively remember seeing a red car climbing up a cliff at Jotaro (Wheel of Fortune). I said "What the hell?! How is it doing that!" She said "This is a stand attack." I asked what she was watching. She looked up and pointed at me "JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE!" she shouted. I backed away from her because she was being weirder than usual, but as I walked away I thought to myself "Hang on I thought JoJo was about that guy and that black kid and the shooting in the café." I never thought about it again until 2015. I was in a state of pure boredom as I had no anime to watch. My sister walked towards me and said "Why don't you try this? It's called JoJo I think you'll like it." At that moment I was so desprete for some anime I gave in and got Crunchyroll up. I flicked past and there it was Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood. I sat down ad watched that first episode. I was quiet. I didn't say a word while I watched it nor did I show any emotion. My sister looked at me and said "So... What do you think?" I slowly looked up at her and said "Thank you for enlightening me." On that weekend I binged watched up to DIO's World (part 1) and then me and my sister watched the episodes together. She was utterly shocked at how fast I got through Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency and both seasons of Stardust Crusaders. A couple weeks after the end of Stardust Crusaders I was crying because part 4 was not confirmed and I had nothing to watch. My sister then said "read the MANGA!" She handed her phone. It was the cover of a downloaded manga with a pompadour "Who? WHO IS THIS?!" She then said "A really great guy!"

      THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO MY STORY!!!

    • I'm a bit embarrased to say this but i watched a top ten anime kisses and number one was a dio and erina (as a joke) but i had no idea what it was until i actually started watching jojo

      The first time i got interested was when i was playing Jstars victory vs and jonathan and joseph showed up as characters and i really liked them

      although when joseph said "you can sleep easy tonight, grandma" i thought the story was about 2 flamboyant brothers who were on a quest to protect their grandma of something lol

    • My first exposure was probably Kakyoin licking the cherry and WatchMojo placing DIO Brando as their top satisfying villain death.I decided to try Jojo after one guy on YouTube recommended it.Im on part 3 currently.

    • I love fighters, specially DarkStalkers, so I played the Capcom game back in the 2000's. However, the Capcom game alone wasn't enough to get me on board, since getting scans for the manga back then was an ordeal, so I kinda forget it and moved on until the anime came out, and I started watching the anime. After Part 3 ended last year, I got curious and started to read the manga, up to part 7 ending.

    • The "Two Best Friends Play" gaming channel first introduced me to JoJo. I can't remember when, but a while back they were talking about battles with severed heads and other battles in the "frozen time". I dunno why I didn't hop on the JoJo train back then, but eventually I was convinced to start the anime and that was that.

    • Back in the summer of 2014, I had a friend of a friend who'd frequently post/share JoJo stuff on Facebook. First things I noticed

      - Road Roller

      - Joseph and Caesar's iconic pose

      - Kakyoin mucking up the cherry

      As with most anime I watch, I tend to take a look at the OPs beforehand in order to size them up. Of course, with JoJo, I was given a very good first impression. Before I started the anime, I also watched the ASB HHA+GHA compilation and was pretty much blown away by what was going on my screen.

      The rest was history.

      Necro = Necropost

    • What's wrong with reviving a dead thread if it's a fun topic?

      I also saw the arcade MUDA MUDA MUDA to WRRRYYYYY clip. Years later I saw the show.
