So I finally decided to watch JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure out of sheer curiosity borne from the memes, and I have to say… it totally makes sense. The show is so ridiculously over the top that it practically begs to be memed.
I mean, seriously “Your first [kiss] wasn’t JoJo! It was me, Dio!” is the stuff of dreams. Practically every other line of dialog in the whole show is hammed up to 11, making it not only impossible to hate, but perfect for drinking games galore.
In all other respects, Jojo is awful. Every fight is a series of “No, you!” 5th grade one-upmanship. Make up a power and shout accompanying noises until your opponent flips the script with something else pulled from their neither regions. Whoever has the more fruitful imagination and willingness to almost break the rules against cheating by making up impossible powers will win. “Oh yeah! Well… I can spin my locket so fast it can block your eye lasers!”
It’s utterly ridiculous. It’s so terrible it’s amazing. I can only imagine what MST3k would do to something like this, and it would be great to watch with friends. I may have to arrange something like that sometime.
