At first I couldn't stand Jojos Bizarre Adventure, I had it in my watchlist but kept putting it off, but then I told myself to bear with it and struggled my way through Part 1. I went into Part 2 expecting greater things since the first part had me on the edge of my seat but I was slightly disapointed, it failed to keep me engaged to the point where a 20 min episode would be done because I just fast forwarded through the unintresting parts. The end of Part 2 was oddly satisfying and I had high hopes for Hamons return, but then I was introduced to a whole new concept: stands. Stands was the missing piece that had kept me from finishing the first two parts but Part 3 was entirly new, giving not only a sense of luck and beating the odds in every fight but also a sense of, "what can this person's stand possibly do to be so powerful?" which kept every battle fresh and intriguing. The conclusion of Part 3 was long awaited but extremley satisfactory and I went into Part Four with no idea of how this could continue, but then I watched part 4 and I became instanly hooked. Not only the musical refrences being screwed up by subtitles but also, the element of strategy and quick thinking were involved in the fights. The story really grabbed a hold of me and, once again, hit me with the feeling of tension at the fact that nobody is guaranteed to live! After an amazing conclusion to Part 4, I notice Part 5 and think once again, "How can it continue?" but then a mix of all the good things about all the parts before it were combined to make, in my opinion, one of the best anime of its kind. Overall Jojo is definitely not for everyone but that doesn't mean one shouldn't watch it! Get out of your comfort zone and hang in there, you will definitely be rewarded later. Part 5 is incredible but saying that is mostly giving praise to the original manga and that is the total basis for all of the anime in JoJo. In a striking conclusion JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo (Golden Wind) is a true masterpiece, drawing luck, tension, strategy, quick thinking, and an overall "noone is safe" aura, it's a superb anime and it was worth the wait!

MY EXPERIENCE FINISHING JOJO'S  When I first started watching JoJo's I thought it was extremely weird due to the bulky characters and such, but I eventually I fell in love with it. I have watched only the anime and I have to say it was probably my favorite. I got attached to the characters after some time, I loved the story of the series on a whole. The intense and stressful fights, the intriguing plot, the sad and the happy moments were all I needed after finishing HxH.   That concluded my opinion on JoJo's as a whole. Now let's get to Golden Wind (The whole point). I loved the characters, but they received an 8 due to their wacky appearance; weirder than other JoJo's. I found them really funny, yet supportive at the same time. I felt sad for each and every important death and got hopeful again after seeing Giorno carry what was left of Passione on his back. The story was also great, but what I found out to be odd, was that the whole mess that happened in Italy, happened in order to stop the distribution of drugs of the organization. It sounds like a big deal but considering other JoJo's parts this was the least noble. I was glad to see a comeback from some characters from previous parts and I also was glad that nothing bad happened (To almost most of them). However, the anime generally had some loose ends. Here are some examples until the end of the paragraph. SPOILER ALERT HERE!. How did Giorno manage to get control of Passione after dooming Diavolo to an endless loop of death? Did Bucciarati actually survive his ordeal? How is Polnareff able to survive in the body of the Turtle? Where are Jotaro and Koichi? How is Giorno able to control Golden Experience Requiem? And a few more... The Animations and the Sound received a 10/10 because they literally deserved it. The colors, the contrast, the animations, the weather, the characters all felt really clean and smooth and were enjoyable to watch. Nothing too bright and nothing too dark. As for sound, the music selection was incredible, from the intros to the intense moments where Giorno's Il Vento d'oro was playing, the music and the sounds gave me goosebumps. There were very few times where I skipped the intro. The reason I didn't just skip it was because I loved the music. Also, not to mention Golden Wind didn't have that occasional ear rape that other JoJo's sometimes had. (Okuyasu's The Hand in Diamond is Unbreakable, Jotaro's and Dio's time stop, the Pillar Men theme in Battle Tendency, etc.)  Overall, this anime is a must-watch if you enjoyed the other parts on JoJo's Bizzare Adventure for the reasons mentioned in the outset. I really hope everyone enjoys Golden Wind as much as I did. I honestly can't wait to dive into part 6 (Stone Ocean). Anyways, I hope you found this review useful and wholesome to an extent. I really hope you get to enjoy this anime as much as I did. ♥ ♥ ♥
