>> No. 11937 [Edit]
Wow, the first episode really went straight to the time skip. I was expecting it to take at least two or three episodes until it got there, but the anime really isn't messing around.

We might get through Phantom Blood in pretty quickly at this rate.

Wow, so they're actually going to animate Battle Tendency? Thing's are really looking up this season.

I have no idea. I was pretty much talking out of my ass since I had only seen the first episode, but I've now seen the second episode and have seen the OP so it could be possible. The rate at which the anime is going through the manga is still pretty fast, though.

I found these subs a little funny at first, but I couldn't stand it after a while. It's just so bad.

I did like, however, the references to the Diamond is Unbreakable translation with the "ABAJ!" thing.

Well, I am currently watching this with the Commie subs, however I had decided to see exactly how bad the subs for this were out of boredom and for a good laugh.

Holy hell, I just realized that Duwang was the name of the town in the mistranslated Diamond is Unbreakable chapters. Haha.

Time was slowed for dramatic effect and for the characters to, in full verbatim, explain their thoughts that would've taken a fraction of a second to realize and act on.

I can't watch the 4th episode since I'm waiting to see if Commie will release a v2 of episode 4 like they did for episode 2 and 3. I can't switch to the other subbers since it'd make my torrent download list annoying to go through and I don't like that.

Just got done watching the first ark/chapter or whatever. I'm sorry but I just can't love this as enthusiastically as everyone else does. It's probably just me, but I couldn't help but wonder if this was possibly written by a 12 year old.
Is all the dialogue supposed to be this corny and strange? I feel like I'm watching a high school play at times. I keep trying to tell myself while watching this that I'm just over thinking it, but it's hard not to get confused when you've got a talking vampire head that shoots lasers and moves around with it's hair, explaining how a zombie holding onto a pipe is about to make a ship explode... it's all just so... "are you serious?"
There's just so much that makes no sense, I wouldn't know where to start.
well okay, since when can vampires shoot lasers from their eyes? and if it was something he did with the last bit of his demon life (which was changed in the next ep to the act of cutting his own head off) why was he able to do it freely on the boat? for that matter, if jojo already saw what the attack was capable of, why did he try AGAIN to block it with his arms? from the looks of it, he clearly had time to move. why can't these people just die? whats with all this "I'm not dead yet!" guy gets ripped in half but can still crawl across the room, guy gets his decapitated but can still pick up a flower with his mouth and spit it out to hurt some one's eye... hey if dio can regenerate his body back to normal after getting body parts cut off or even being sliced in half, why does he need a replacement body? and, why didn't they just get any old body?
I know I'm reading to much into the show, but it's just too much for me.

Is this all supposed to be funny or whats the deal here? I really don't get it.

>> No. 19054 [Edit]
I don't know. Recently I've been following the philosophy of logic, reason, and secular humanism. And the way I see it, women are just as suspecptible to the the human urges of sex as we are. What is intrinsically wrong with sex anyway? As long as we are still able to keep our reason? I have pretty much been what most guys here would cost a "normalganfagonisticst gere" for well over a year here, and found women are susceptible to a lot of the same problems we fins ourselves probselibitsic to.

What the hell was the deal with ep8.

Polnareff is not known for his working well with others nor his wariness.

I was impressed by how the crew managed to use telephones without the cables being cut. I mean, they were idiots even with them, but I was surprised how that simply remained a thing through the episode.

So far Jojo is pretty good. Nothing unexpected, but everything I wanted was delivered in spades.

I didn't follow part 4 as it was airing because I wanted to wait on the BDs, but I said to hell with it and decided to start marathoning this yesterday. Seemes the BDs didn't really fix or change much anyway. Apparently this just finished airing too so I guess it was good timing.

One of the first things I noticed was the obnoxious way they still rename all the stands for English speakers, almost forgot they did that for the previous parts. I get some of them are for possible copyright issues since they're usualy band/song names, but many are so obscure or simple common words/names so it doesn't make any sense to change them. pic related, Who's gonna sue them for typing out the word "surface"?

I'm 20 ep into jojo part4 and... it's not very good lol.
It's really lacking substance. There's no over arching objective, threat, or goal.
It's just a lot of pointless dicking around. They had a rather straight forward premise set up early on but took care of it far far too quickly. It was nothing special but the mystery of who's creating stand users was much better than having absolutely nothing at all to tie things together. After that got resolved it became like watching and waiting and wondering if they're gonna establish a new over arching villain/goal for the characters.
Which I guess sort of came in the form of some random murder who feels very detached from the main characters, and is treated like a minor sub plot at best in a show that has no main plot.
Also, I find the setting very boring. they went from traveling the globe, to keeping everything in a small generic Japanese town. It's hard to switch from watching as they're traversing deserts and oceans while fighting for their lives, to watching characters go to and from school while occasionally getting into wacky hijinks on the way.
I thought it was neat at first they brought back part3's jojo, but then they had him sit in a hotel room jerking off and doing nothing for half the season. As of ep 20 the only episode he's really done much of anything in is one where they go hunt a rat of all things. Meanwhile part2's jojo shows up and as soon as he does they literally have him playing babysitter and nothing else.
They repeatedly bring out what seem like interesting villains, then kill them off or BEFRIEND them Nanoha style within an ep or two, most going with the befriending direction..
While I know nothing about jojo is supposed to be taken too seriously or read too much into, I still can't help but notice they're extremely inconsistent with the main character's power. They can repair stuff which is all well and goo, but they made a very clear point that he warps and distorts the things he repairs. That distortion thing only seemed to happen within the first couple ep after that only happened randomly. It's like the writer figured it'd be more convenient to have the power repair stuff normally and retconed it while not even being half way into the series yet. In general it feels very much like the result of a writer who used up all his best ideas on their previous works.
To be fair I will say the art, sound, animation, and over all style is great quality stuff. The substance just isn't there.

Just finished it. I like how part 2's jojo showed up early on so he could use his ability to find someone who showed themselves as soon as he arrived anyway. Then did absolutely nothing at all aside from kidnapping a baby. Then while much of the second half of the anime revolved around trying to find someone else he was nowhere to be found.

Maybe so, but I don't believe it's intentional.
In this season things were so over the top silly and ridiculous that I could 'almost' believe it was intended, but it didn't feel like it was meant to be a comedy to me. There's no shortage of hilarious moments sure, but things seemed far too dark, gritty, and violent for this to be a comedy for one. The very first villain was introduced as someone who liked to rape and kill people, including children. You've got to have a twisted sense of humor to include something like that into your comedy. Besides, comedies tend to be episodic with actual jokes or funny situations. This was around half episodic half serial and there wasn't much in the way of actual jokes, the focus here was largely on action. The humor mainly came from "are you serious" moments, the kind found in movies that are "so bad they're good". I think the best proof of this is the main character's retconned power.

US Copyright law reasons.

They'd open themselves to the right owners of that rolling stone's album wanting a royalty or flatly having them remove all episodes containing those words.

If it was just a small handful of stands, they probably would've went through the hasstle to get permission, but due to the sheer number of stands and all of them being in the same boat, it wouldn't make much sense.

Sadly, the references to REO Speedwagon and the Cars are going to be the exception, especially now that the references start to get numerous.
>> No. 31934 [Edit]
Yes we all know the bizarre excuse they use, but you can't copy right generic words/phrases. Reasons why should be pretty obvious.
The only thing more insane than trying to sue someone for using a word like "surface", is actually thinking you'll get sued for using it.
By that same logic we might as well all stop using the word "it", less we get sued by Stephen King.

The key word there being "generic".
For a few of the one-woders, it is a bit of a stretch, but it may still fall under the term 'generic'. Cars and Speedwagon were weak examples.

How does an iconic album name count as 'generic'?
What about when everything about the stand is a reference, such as killer queen's attack Bites the dust?

It also starts to get a lot more direct than previous parts starting with golden wind and continues through stone ocean. How well do Green Day, Spice Girl, and Marilyn Manson pass the 'generic' test?

Also, lawsuits are expensive to the point where it makes very little business sense to willfully open yourself to some sleezy lawyer acting on behalf of one of the large production/record companies filing a lawsuit and then asking to settle it before trial for a low cost of half a million dollars plus court fees.
>> No. 31936 [Edit]
They're not going to waste their time and money on frivolous lawsuits that they have little or nothing to gain from. It wouldn't even make it to the settlement stage as any judge would dismiss the case on the spot.
The bullying tactics you describe are used by big corporations to subdue competition. In realty, no one cares if you mention the name of a movie book or what have you. This is how modern day film and tv are able to casually reference other works. Depending on how they reference the works it could be considered slander, but there is no legal president in simply mentioning the name of a band, character, movie ect. This is why youtube videos get copyright strikes from playing clips/audio from copy written materials but not from mentioning the name of those materials. If what you say were even possible, review series (both amatuer and professional)would not exist. This is simply a case of CR being needlessly paranoid, nothing more nothing less.

>How does an iconic album name count as 'generic'?
Popularity of the material has little baring in this situation, you can't copyright a generic (1-2 common words) phrase regardless of how popular your material is. Michael jackson's "bad" album is one of the most iconic albums out there, but would you get sued if you named your character Bad and gave him a stand named Speed Demon? No because those are generic terms and the very idea is silly. By generic I of course mean commonly used words.

As for your examples, yes I'd say "green day" just like "red day" or "blue day" is generic, it's a color + day, that's about as generic as you can get, same for spice girl. A person's name however in the case of Marilyn Manson, would be a different matter. You 'can' however possibly get into trouble if you create an actual band and name it similar to a pre-existing band because this would be misleading, but that is not the case in Jojo.

I think it's worth pointing out also that the characters are still saying the names, out-loud, in english. Altering the subtitles wouldn't really change anything or protect CR if this were indeed an issue.
>> No. 31945 [Edit]
>Altering the subtitles wouldn't really change anything or protect CR if this were indeed an issue.
I wouldn't be so sure about that. Hypothetically speaking -IF- mentioning the names actually were an issue, CR could possible get away with claiming they only made the subs and had nothing to do with the creative process behind the audio/video and as such pass blame onto the original creators.

Not quite.
CR is only legally responsible for the stuff that CR adds -- this includes subs and the english dub (funi is in the same boat, and has done similar things for similar reasons).

CR has a license from the JP company to use the JP work (jojo) in the USA, but not a license to use the reference/homage in the USA. if the sleezy lawyer wanted the JP work to remove the reference/homage, they would need to do so through the JP law system (the reference/homage is a valid use in JP law, so this would fail pretty fast).

Oh, now would probably be a good time to note: the english stuff added by CR also crosses over to EU copyright laws as well, where Freedom of Speech is not a protected right. The renaming of stuff helps stove off two birds with one stone.
>> No. 31947 [Edit]
>sue, CR could possible get away with claiming they only made the subs and had nothing to do with the creative process behind the audio/video and as such pass blame onto the original creators.
It's the other way around actually. An audio visual work can be easily shown to be non-infringing or even transformative use, and thus not actionable under almost any copyright regime. On the other hand subtitles may not be counted as transformative. I recall there was a case a while back where someone who made subtitles was sued, the claim being something like that the subtitles were identical to a copyrighted work of text (the script) and thus were infringing. That said subs are translations, so I dunno how that would be handled, still in the case of anything relating to the subtitles CR would almost certainly be the ones in hot water.

Anyways, there's no telling why they did it. It could even be something completely different such as CR trying to get the music labels that own the copyrights to toss them some cash for brand promotion, and when they didn't they wrote out the names.
>> No. 31948 [Edit]

CR is a company founded on illegal activity and business practices which relaunched and has since been trying to stay clean while projecting a clean image . Even though album tittles can not be copy write protected, They likely don't want to take any chances.

It's sort of implied that some stands users can choose who their passive abilities affect. The rules aren't set in stone, so pretty much anything works.
