⭐ ジョジョの奇妙な冒険・JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Book Club Home Thread ⭐ *Now reading Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford*

I guess I’ll join in, while ultimately I’d like to have the prints it’s definitely a big series so I’ll get the digital color edition.

I have read all the parts before except the new one, but never in Japanese so it should be a good one.

I’m in the first 90 days of a new job, and I think at least the first year of this job is going to be pretty rough. In a lot of ways I have no idea what I’m doing. I might just have to lurk

Whoot whoot! Yay! Is that the first 3 tanko or bunko? The first 3 bunko covers all of Part 1.

Yeah, I have a whole shelf just for JoJo. Specifically this one,
https://amzn.asia/d/bn3rqHH
There are 2 squares of about 5-7 vols that I use to display other stuff, but unless Part 9 is short, the whole section will probably be about 5-10 vols too many for this bookcase. Bunko definitely takes up less space though. I think Maru, the owner of Bar SPW has all the bunko there I think and I’m pretty sure they fit in a much smaller space. I can ask him if you want.

Hell yeah, it should be a lot of fun then. For some reason, all the translations I’ve seen of Part 2 seem to be missing details. For Part 1, they’re not outright wrong, but usually not what my first choice would be.

No worries! I should be here for… the next 20 years. Please feel free to lurk or drop in as you please :slight_smile:

These are the tanko versions :slight_smile: so you have 3/5 of Part 1. They should last a while though. The first arc/5 chapters is scheduled to take a month to read.

I got the first volume of the digital b/w version so I’ll join for at least that part probably! This might be the hardest thing I’ve read so far though (at least based on the Natively rating), so I’m a bit nervous and not sure yet how long I’ll be able to read together with the club :sweat_smile:

I do have the first volume of part 9 physically. But there’s only been one released at the time I bought it anyway.

I’ll sleep on it and then decide, helps I order fairly regularly at amazonjp.

Should the arc threads have an indicator for what Part they’re from?

  • yes, the name of the Part should be included in jpn
  • yes, the name of the Part in English should be included
  • Yes, the number of the Part should be included
  • No, ジョジョの奇妙な冒険・JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Book Club: Arc name is already long enough

Got the phantom blood color set for kindle. No discounts, but the price is still less than I would pay for a new book here…

I’ll have to read something else to go along with it or I would blow through it by myself…

Hm, how about Dracula? Or Les Mis?

Where did you guys get that version of the book digitally? I am not sure which one I should get on bookwalker, since the chapter name don’t align with this: ⭐ ジョジョの奇妙な冒険・JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Book Club Home Thread ⭐ *Now reading Invader Dio (vol 1)* - #2 by DIO-Berry

So if you want the first chapter free, here it is on Bookwalker

Bunko (less volumes more pages)

Tanko (more volumes less pages (original sold version))

I’ll try to update these in the table probably later this month :slight_smile:

Ok, so I’m working on the comprehensive chapter comparisons. I’ve got Parts 1 and 2 pretty much finished. BTW DO NOT LOOK AT THIS LINK IF YOU WANT TO AVOID SPOILERS, MANY CHAPTER TITLES ARE SPOILERS

What I mostly need at this point is JoJonium chapter names. Naming conventions seem to get standardized starting in 3 (ie both tanko and bunko start to be the same), but I don’t have the earlier JoJonium vols to compare with. It’s also starting to look like that only the original format tankos have different chapter names. The conbini vols have the bunko names and even the digital color tanko has the bunko names…

If you have editions of JoJo not currently filled in for Parts 1 and 2, please let me know and if you would send a pic of the table of contents for those editions, I would really appreciate it.

I just noticed that the entire part 1 (both colour and b/w versions) is currently free digitally on Rakuten and Bookwalker (until Feb 28th)!

Rakuten colour version

Rakuten black/white version

There are also several 1st and 2nd volumes from later parts that are currently free.

I’m not really familiar with Bookwalker, but I think this link should lead to all the free volumes there?

That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing!! I’ll repost the links in the OP

SOS, anyone with the bunko for Part 7…

Are all the chapters different up to the 15th? :smiling_face_with_tear: My tolerance/enjoyment of data entry has a limit…
