Florida, U.S.A, 2011 After an accident while on a drive with her sweetheart, Jolyne Cujoh falls into a trap and is sentenced to fifteen years. She is sent to the state-run maximum-security correctional facility Green Dolphin Street Prison—AKA "the Aquarium." On the verge of despair, she receives a pendant from her father that causes a mysterious power to awaken inside of her. "There are things in this world that are more terrifying than death, and what's happening in this prison is definitely one of them." A message from a mysterious boy who appears before Jolyne, inexplicable events that occur one after another, the horrifying truth told to her by her father when he comes to visit, and the name DIO... Will Jolyne ultimately be set free from this stone ocean they call a prison? The final battle to end century-long fateful confrontations between the Joestar family and DIO begins!

After much anticipation, Stone Ocean is finally here. It is hard to tell what Netflix plans to do with this weird release schedule but this spoiler-free review is based on the first 12 episodes that are out at the time of writing.  As with all the JoJo parts from the modern anime adaptations, Stone Ocean is very enjoyable. You could watch it independently, but it is highly recommended to watch the entire anime series in release order (Parts 1,2,3,4,5 and 6). That said, it is most likely that longtime fans of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure will love this story. The Stands in this part seem more sensible than Golden Wind while the characters (people) feel a tiny bit lacking. Jolyne is a charming JoJo just like her Dad. All in all Stone Ocean feels much less Bizzare than Stardust Crusaders but in a good way. It feels like the plot itself is more on the forefront this time around than the adventures, which I'm personally okay with tbh. The animation is fine but it is definitely lacking when compared to previous parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. There were a few instances of incompletely animated movements or too few key frames being used. This would be fine with most other shows and some would call this nitpicking, but David Production has set the bar way higher for JoJo. The one bit of animation that stands out the most for me is the Opening of episodes 1 to 12. That 3D camera movement through the still scenes is so amazing. I'm in love with it. Probably the best animation in an opening among all JoJo parts.The sound design and voice acting are amazing as usual and that's all I have to say about it for now. In conclusion, please watch JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean. It's definitely entertaining and cool. My rating could change depending on how the show goes during rest of the episodes, but up until Ep 12, it's a solid 8/10
