Discussion Guidelines

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent spoilers. Some folks are reading JoJo for the first time and have never watched the anime either. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.

  1. Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.

  2. Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).

  3. Any information from later in the volume or series than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections. For other Parts, please label the Part before the spoiler, for example “Well we know 2 [character] survives because they’re in a later Part”

Instructions for Spoiler Tags

Click the cog above the text box and use either the “Hide Details” or “Blur Spoiler” options. The text which says “This text will be hidden” should be replaced with what you are wishing to write. In the case of “Hide Details”, the section in the brackets that is labeled “Summary” can be replaced with whatever you like also (i.e, [details=”Chapter 1, Pg. 1”]).

Hide Details results in the dropdown box like below:

Example

This is an example of the “Hide Details” option.

The “Blur Spoiler” option will simply blur the text it surrounds.

Chapter 23 questions

Knights who served the king trained there.

He tells JoJo to defeat Jack the Ripper while holding the wine glass and not spilling a single drop!

Zeppeli will abandon him.

North winds created hero Vikings. Figuratively, it seems to mean that adverse situations shape people into being able to do heroic things.

:laughing:
Speedwagon is upset about what Zeppeli told JoJo to do, so Zeppeli tells the story to explain how a difficult situation could be turned around into a chance for victory. And later, it seems that JoJo holding the wine glass does turn into an advantage in the fight!

Hell yeah! Nice! How did you feel about the shark btw lol?

Well, I think sharks don’t actually tend to attack people on purpose, so I just took Zeppeli’s story as kind of a tall tale. Also, I know it’s not the point of his story, but I think it would’ve been nice if the fisherman and the shark could’ve figured out a way to coexist lol

I totally get that. Sharks are so rarely interested in eating people.

I had totally forgotten about this story from when I first read this chapter so I was really thrown off to read it again lol
