And don't even get me started on Aoyama, what even was that 😂 Maybe it's just me, but I kinda didn't get it.

I think the whole thing about cheese was supposed to be a stereotypical joke about him being part French (actually his whole character seems that way). It seemed like they were trying to make him more tragic by revealing that his quirk actually damages his body & he has to wear that belt at all times, but the other aspects are just so goofy it had no impact (for me anyway)

I still stand by this

Hellloooo! (I hope I'm putting this post in the right category!) Tonight, I will start watching My Hero Academia. I thought it would be fun if anybody else is still in the beginning of the s

Well said, @Ohiotaku! There is this underlying 'snake-iness' about him that I just can't overlook. Do I believe that there is a part of him that honestly wants to change? Yeah, I do. But I just can't

I loved seasons 1 & 2. Season 3 had some awesomeness, but parts were underwhelming IMO. The current season just can’t seem to get rolling.

Of course if you don’t like shonen, the points moot :P

The school festival arc is getting fun with everyone finding a role to suit them for the concert (band, dancers, fx). Bakugo as drummer comes as no surprise 😂) And for a more comical villain Gentle & La Brava are perfect (equal parts Youtuber, gentleman thief & stage magician). We even got a bit of mentoring between Allmight & Deku.

The thing about this episode was that to me it kinda seemed a bit dragged out. I would have wanted to see more about the training with Allmight and less about the festival planning. The festival itself seems interesting but why did they show the organizational stuff so long 😂 I suppose it's part of showing the characters off more

This week was pretty much more of the same from last week. Very funny people wondering if Eri was Mirio’s kid 🤣 

It was good to see Mei again, Deku better test out any gear she makes for him though. Also got a bit more insight into Gentle & La Brava’s characters.

I saw Heroes Rising this afternoon which takes place after season 4 & it gave a bit of a preview of what Deku & Allmight’s training will lead to. I’m glad that Chimera & Slice got captured instead of killed. They’re too cool to be one shot villains & hopefully they’ll show up again spacer.pngspacer.png

Just watched the latest episode & geez, the relationship between Gentle Criminal & La Brava...I just don't know what to say. It's a deep bond but I'm more than a little disturbed by it.

@RuthisianCodex why is that? because la brava is rather young or because of something else? I thought it was great to get better info on their background

Oh the extra background is great, don't get me wrong. It's the fact that she's not only way younger than him(the way the episode shows it is as if she's still just a teenager running around with this guy. Now, given cultural differences & all that, this could be completely acceptable & no big deal where they are but for me just eh...) but obsessive relationships like that are just so unnerving because they're not built on anything positive. I mean, when she first learned about him she was in  a deep depression & just grasped onto the 1st thing that looked good & became instantly obsessed & devoted herself to him. Also, the episode alludes to the idea that she stalks after her love interests, yikes! Add to that the fact that Gentle Criminal choose a life of crime because of his need for validation rather than finding some other way to get noticed & make his mark. Talk about toxic all the way around. Their bond is built & fortified by desperation.

@RuthisianCodex that's quite a serious take on it 😂 not saying you are wrong or anything, I just didn't give it as much thought because the whole la brava gentle criminal thing seemed more as a comedic aspect overall to me. but yeah, there definitely are some things there that are unusual to put it in the best possible way. I don't think they will be playing a major role in the rest of the anime though, which then raises the question of why they would introduce them with such a background

I get the same feeling though they tried to make it a little less cringey than it first seems. Gentle’s hair was white in the scene where he was 22, so it’s a natural color, not due to age. But another scene had him refer to himself as middle aged, so I’m guessing 31 - 35. They comment on La Brava being short for her age but still guessing she’s about 14 - 16. So no matter how you look at it it’s still a minor girl & an adult man approximately twice her age. It’s likely a good bit of their feelings are admiration on her part & gratitude on his. Not to mention loneliness since they are both social outcasts. But they are very lovey dovey in the way they talk to each other, which makes it feel more than a little ... incomfortable.0

@Illusion of Terra hehe, yeah I tend to really get into character analysis if it's a show I greatly enjoy. Another reason I focused so much on them is because of Eri's attendance at the school event. We all know that she's got major stuff going on so for two new characters like that to be introduced at this time, it just makes me feel like somehow they would get involved with her or cause something bad to happen that involve her in some way. 

And @Ohiotaku exactly, see Gentle Criminal is the one who keeps talking about how much he's aging & stuff & that just makes it creepy. If Colonel Sanders had a disgruntled, estranged brother I bet he'd look & act just like Gentle Criminal!

Just checked their “official” ages.  Gentle is 32 (called it). La Brava is supposedly 21 (no way in hell 🤣) Of course it’s a common trope in anime that male characters are younger than they look & females are older.

that's already considered middle aged? now I feel quite old dagnammit

They say that humans can live to be 120.  To me that means middle age is 60 so I figure I've got a few years yet to go.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it... for now.  I've got 5 years to come up with another one.  :D

That's a theme I've noticed in anime. Especially with single female characters in the mid to late 20s. 

And with La Brava, it's not her height that makes her seem like an adolescent, it's her mindset & behavior. Just very immature.

After this week's episode I wonder what will happen to Gentle and LaBrava. I didn't quite get the last scene.

The festival was quite alright I think, nothing way over the top but what I expected. I think it was a rather enjoyable few episodes between the more serious ones!

Oh boy, now I can't wait to see it 🙂

Oh my gosh! Eri is just so adorable, I just want to scoop her up & protect her from everything! And I really enjoyed the school festival too! What a fun episode!

Eri’s reaction is definitely a high point, not just of the arc, but the season. And Mirio & Midoriya tearing up (couldn’t ask for a better pair of “big brothers”). 
I wish the actual animation of Class 1A’s performance had been better, but at least they didn’t resort to the wonky looking CGI a lot of idol series use :P I did like the bit about Jiro’s background. That her love of music has a connection to her parents & she actually had conflicted feelings about becoming a hero vs a performer. But it’s not necessarily an either/or situation.

Still mixed feelings about Gentle & La Brava. Can’t help but wonder if it wouldn’t have worked better to keep them strictly comedic characters. While giving them a chance to reform has potential, the more seriously they try to portray them, the more the awkward aspects of their relationship stand out.

I thought they would devote the last 2 episodes of the season to a mini arc on the titan-esque villain we saw earlier, but looks like the emphasis next week will be on adult heroes like Endeavor & Hawk (who played a minor role in Heroes Rising).

definitely agree! thought that was really interesting from a character I had not given that much thought to before

      Yo Anime Forums! It's Groove_Kami here to bring you this blog.
      So, I love the series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. It was created back in 1987 by Hirohiko Araki and since then, we've had more than 30 years of this series bliss. It currently has 8 parts, 8 main JoJo's, over 150 stands, and lots and lots of badboys. But, there is a certain part that a lot of fans consider their favorite part, and one of the most popular parts, being Part 5: Golden Wind.
      Golden Wind has this weird appeal to the fans, and is much different from the earlier parts. It's more, Bizarre, per se. I think one of it's appeals is it's main cast, who we will be looking at and ranking by their strengths and abilities. I will be ranking all 7 of Passione(Bucciaratti's Team), our main cast. Now, if you have seen part 5 and disagree with my rankings, please, be mindful and don't act like a coked-up chimpanzee. Now, with all of this out of the way, let's begin.
      #7-Leone Abbachio & Moody Blues- Leone Abbachio, a former cop who had quit after the death of his partner, and overall being mediocre at his job. One night, he was found by Bucciarrati, and he was offered to join his squad. He joined the mafia gang, Passione, and got his Stand, Moody Blues. Moody Blues is a close-range Humanoid Stand with the ability of Chronological Rebroadcasting. Chronological Rebroadcasting allows Abbachio to replay any event that has happened, whether it be 5 minutes or 20 years ago. But, the more time had passed from that events, the more time it will take to replay it. Now, this Stand is not used for combat, but more for investigation. This already lands Abbacchio on the weakest spot on the list, along with it's low stats, with a C in Power, Speed, Precision, and Development. It only has A's in Range and Persistence. So yeah, Abbachio is the weakest of all of Passione.
      #6-Guido Mista & Sex Pistols- Guido Mista, a young man who was cheated by the legal system for murdering 4 people with a gun when saving a woman. He was sentenced 15-30 years in prison, but was eventually bailed out by Bucciaratti due to his skills with a pistol, and offered him a spot on his team. He accepted and got his Stand, Sex Pistols. Sex Pistols is a long-distance colony stand, being 6 in total, numbered 1-7(he skipped 4 due to it being unlucky). Sex Pistols' ability is Bullet Control. Sex Pistols will load themselves into the cylinder of the pistol, and once a bullet is shot, they will ride on the bullet. They then can change the trajectory and/or add power and speed to the bullet. Now, he could've been higher if his Stands were more useful without Mista's gun, because anybody above Mista can break the pistol, catch bullets, or easily defeats their Stands. Plus, Mista will eventually run out of bullets, thus making him and his stand utterly defenseless.
      #5-Trish Una & Spice Girl- Trish Una, a young woman who is the daughter of the boss of Passione, Diavolo. She originally was suppose to be guarded by Bucciaratti's team, but was secretely supposed to be killed by Diavolo. She then stayed with Bucciarati's team, and developed her Stand, Spice Girl. Spice Girl's ability is Softening. Softening allows Spice Girl to, well, soften anything it touches. This already gives her an advantage because she can soften Mista's gun. But...she doesn't have any other advantage other than actually being a combat stand. So yeah, Trish is just not that strong compared to the other members.
      #4-Narancia Ghirga & Aerosmith- Narancia Ghirga, a young man who was betrayed by his friends, and was a delinquent with a terrible life. Narancia's mother had died from an eye disease when Narancia was young. Eventually, he was neglected by his father, which basically let Narancia do whatever he wanted. He dropped out of school, and started hanging out with young thugs and delinquents. Eventually, he was tricked by one of his friends and got framed, and was soon betrayed by his friends, and then got the same disease his mother got. One day, Pannacotta Fugo, a member of Passione, found him outside. the resturant he was at. Bucciarratti offered him food, and eventually got his disease healed. He then wanted join Passione, and was accepted. Then he got his Stand, Aerosmith. Aerosmith is a long-distance stand that takes the form of a small WW2 fighter plane, loaded with powerful weapons. He has 2 machine guns loaded under each wings, with an infinite number of hard-hitting bullets. He also has a small bomb that can decimate the inside of a car, and a Carbon Dioxide radar. Narancia is a pretty powerful opponent, but falls in comparison to the people higher than him.
      #3-Bruno Bucciarati & Sticky Fingers-Bruno Bucciarati, the leader of his own team, and has had a troubled past. His Father was a fisherman, and his Mother would stay at home. They divorced when Bucciaratti was 10, where he decided to stay with his 10. One day, his dead was shot down when he witnessed a drug deal, but was saved by luck. Bruno would vow to protect his father, and did when the dealers came to kill him one night. Bucciarati then joined and served under Passione, eventually gaining his own team, being our main cast. Bucciarati's Stand is Sticky Fingers, a close-range stand that can create and manipulate Zippers. Bucciarati can create Zippers and do a lot with them. He can store and hide in his zippers, unzip his body parts to extend his range, zip and unzip peoples bodies, and so much more. And due to his amazing intellect and creativity, this allows him to climb the ranks to our 3rd spot.
      #2-Pannacotta Fugo & Purple Haze- Pannacotta Fugo, a young boy who has a high IQ. He was able to go to college at age 10, where he beat his teacher with an encyclopedia after almost getting sexually harassed by his teacher. He was then neglected, and eventually, kicked out of his family by his parents. Then, he was found by Bucciarati, and joined his crew. He then got one of the deadliest Stands in the gang, and all of JoJo, Purple Haze. Purple Haze can create a deadly virus that can eat a living-being's flesh in under 30 seconds. This ability is overpowered, but has one flaw: it damages and affects the user. You could swap Fugo and Bucciarati around, but I chose Fugo over Bucciarati due to his deadly virus.
      #1-Giorno Giovanna and Gold Experience- Giorno Giovanna. The Main JoJo of Part 5 and the son of Dio Brando. He joined Passione after his fight with Bucciarati so that he can stop the boss, become the boss, and stop the gang from selling drugs to kids. Giorno's Stand is Gold Experience, a Stand that has multiple abilities. His main ability is Life Giver, where it can create living beings from inorganic objects. It has Damage Reflection, which i self explanatory. It can also create flesh and organs to heal and give people new body parts. He also has Life Exhaustion, which allows him to grow and wither things in an instant. It has Life Shot, which can accelerate someone's thought process before they even attack, rendering them unable to move for a bit. But that's not all, because Gold Experience has another form. If Giorno stabs himself with the Requiem Stand Arrow, he can become Gold Experience Requiem, the most powerful Stand in JoJo. It as all of it's original abilities, but with one new ability: Return to Zero. Gold Experience Requiem's ultimate ability is to revert actions and willpower directed against Giorno back to the state of "zero", completely nullifying them and preventing them from becoming "real". Hence, it is virtually invincible, as all "supposed" actions created by an opponent would have been reset (back to point zero). Once struck by this effect, there is no escape from it, and the opponent will have every action they perform reverted back to "zero". It is mentioned by Giorno himself that he is unsure of the exact workings and limits of GER's powers, but it has been shown that its range of influence extends from surface contact to even being in the mere attention field of GER. This cavalcade of abilities allow Giorno to climb up to the strongest spot on Bucciarati's team.
      Anyway, that's all from me. If you want me to analyze or rank anything from your favorite anime, let me know. Also, this is my first blog on my first day here, so I have high hopes for this sit. Ask me anything in the comments, and I'll see ya later. Adios Chimichangas.
