I fucking loved every page of this part, sorry I just finished right now and I cant find the words to describe how I feel. But one thing is for sure, I have watch and read all the jojo's bizarre adventure saga and this could be my favourite part forever.
Funny Valentine did nothing wrong

High Voltage was an unneeded arc. 

sounds like someone doesn't know anything about narrative structure. did you expect him to go home without finishing the steel ball run? you know, the titular race and central plot device? did you think he would leave without finishing the things left unfinished? christ, what a stupid observation

Steel Ball Run truly shows the masterpieces that Araki can create. The art style, the characters, the main plot, the foreshadowing or symbolism, etc. While the JoJo was not as great as Jolyne (my favorite JoJo), Johnny deserves to be ranked second or third, in my sincere opinion. Johnny wasn't exactly the protagonist for this part, which was a breath of fresh air. It was my favorite JoJo character: Gyro Zeppeli. Ever since the beginning, there is no reason to hate this guy. His back story is great, his design is beautiful, his ability and personality are flawless, and his relationship with Johnny and other people make him feel real and fleshed out. The villain is flawless also, like all other JoJo villains. He is definitely fighting against Pucci and Diavolo for first place. I cried during the end, and I'm not much of a crier. Steel Ball Run is a story that I'm sure will never be surpassed. It truly was a bizarre adventure.

read this right after stone ocean, i admit that i liked stone ocean a lot more but this... sbr... it has left something to me that stone ocean did not.... the feeling of a journey, it gave it perfectly, how?

you have to understand, this is still a journey that took place in 4 months.... in real life anyone would shoot a couple jokes here and there, talk about useless stuff and about how to get food, water or sleep... these are all things that were lacking in previius jojos, as they were not taking part in a survival journey(with part 3 bieng "partly" an exception) 

 

also the characters.... while the fights themselves were much less iconic and "persevering" than other jojos, the characters themselves and their backstories were just so much more intriguing, i cried in almost every chapter, it was amazing, i even was almost cheering for the enemy at the end so much that araki made a great job at giving a reason to every character.

 

i don't think this is the best jojo, but it is definitely up there, i'd say my list as of now is something like this:

 

BT=SO(different enough i consider them on the same level)>SBR>DIU>VA>SC>PB

 

 

heck... now that i think about, maybe stone ocean i sthe best jojo and sbr and bt are actually the 2 ones on the same level, but still, they are so far my favorite ones these 3, one for stands, one for non-stand techniques, and one that crosses the bridge.

One of the most beautiful & masterfully told stories in manga history ♡♡ The story characters setting eveything, such a beautiful fun amazing funny bizarre journey, i loved the bond and friendship between Gyro and Johnny. So amazing and made me feel all kinds of emotions. One of the best jojo parts, period!!! ♡♡♡

Amazing. Simply amazing. It's wild... Everytime I finish a new part I feel such tremendous amount of satisfaction to have read it. I was overwhelmed by the ending of Stone Ocean. And then he does it again... I have such appreciation for Araki. Such a great ending.

 

What a freaking journey. Beautiful settings as they made their way through America. Many cool characters and battle along the way. And, the Gyro and Johnny relationship is the best that has appeared in the parts I've read so far...

 

I need all the parts that haven't been animated to be animated.

Favourite manga so far. Fantastic story. Not a huge fan of yaoi, but Johnny and Gyro are the exception to that. My only complaint is that it ended.

Sooo freaking goood

time to binge read all jojo's :D

At first i was skeptical about this part, thinking that it's overhyped by everyone, but after reading it, i can fully understand this hype, truly a must read and one of the best manga ever written whit an appalling cast and a great and deep story with one of the best endings I've ever seen Truly a masterpiece
This truly, truly has been a roundabout path... thank you, araki...
I'm going to be completing honest - I really don't see the hype for this arc. It's amazing, for sure, but it just felt... Meh to me. Like, I much preferred the stardust crusaders arc and the diamond is unbreakable arc. Sure, the end was great, but I just...i dunno. I really, really don't get all the hype for this arc. The characters were cool, sure, but it felt like there really wasn't as much of a building then there was for say, Kira or even King Crimson, because people were always moving, it felt like the story never had enough time to set a scene or build on a location. As someone who's pretty neutral on it, can someone who loved it tell me what they found was so good?

Truly the best part. Absolutely perfect. Araki is my god.

Gyro and Valentine are fucking amazing.

I'm gonna go cry now :'(

This little excerpt pissed me off.

This is my favorite manga. I could never bring myself to describe it as anything but a masterpiece in both art and storytelling.

After re-reading this in color, I wonder why Araki had to add High Voltage, that arc did help make the story end perfectly.

I didn't wanted to say goodbye to Johnny and Gyro but everything comes to an end, Thank you guys

Congratulations on finishing the SBR coloration JJCA!
