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 27:過去からの復讐鬼・タルカスと黒騎士ブラフォード その 2 Questions
  • What is scary about the difference between Jonathan and Tarkus to Speedwagon?
  • Does the layout of the panels on the fifth and sixth pages remind you of anything?
  • Summarize the mix of real and fake history in this chapter (if you don’t understand it, please feel free to just request the answer from me. You can do this at any time for any question btw.)

I hate this chapter so much. That took 3h with the lookups and recording every ふたり to 2人 change in the text

Started reading with this chapter! Didn’t want to be 26 chapters behind everyone else lol

Questions
  1. He comments on the size difference between Jonathan and his sword, as well as commenting on Tarkus’ strange hair and mentioning that he’s not like the zombies they fought in the tunnel.
  2. I honestly don’t know I started with this chapter LOL
  3. I don’t know much about English history, but I do know a bit about how Mary Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I and how Elizabeth I ordered Mary to be executed, but that’s about it. In terms of fake history I’m guessing everything involving the two knights.

Hey hey hey! Welcome! The older chapters won’t get deleted, so you can always go back to them if you want too :sunglasses:

Chapter 26
  1. Yep! Although the hair is Bruford, not Tarkus
  2. Ah, it’s not a callback to anything in JoJo, but rather, easier if you’re familiar with European history?

About 5 pages from the end (191), there are also two panels that resemble a sword
I can’t imagine it wasn’t intentional

  1. Yep!! lol

I don’t think I’ll finish this chapter before I should go to bed, so I’ll probably post this week’s questions during my Tuesday morning :sweat_smile:
