12 Days of Anime 2016, Day 10: JoJo is Really Good Again.

I love JoJo’s Bizzare adventure, it’s ridiculous campy nonsense and it’s great. Stardust Crusaders felt like¬† bit of a step down though, there were definitely some great fights there, but a lot of the Stands were just various flavours of mystical punch ghost, and it felt drawn out at times. Diamond is Unbreakable feels like a jump back up to peak JoJo.

Short anime tend to be overlooked a lot, because the general expectation is that the short runtime acts as a cap on how good they can actually be. Sometimes this is the case, a lot of short anime ends up being pretty bad. But, with the increasing number of the things coming out each season (I’m currently watching 13, which is still missing a few of the ones airing) some of them are bound to be winners, and they are.¬† The format tends to work best for gag commedies, they can get in, tell a joke and get out without overstaying their welcome, but there are plenty of good examples outside this framework.
