From now on we’ll commence reading ジョジョの奇妙な冒険. The pace is 2 chapters a week, so the schedule for volume 1 is:
侵略者ディオブランドその１ January 15 - January 22
侵略者ディオブランドその３ January 22 - January 29
過去からの手紙その１ January 29 - February 5
石仮面その１ February 5 - February 12
Warning: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure contains graphic violence.
Plot: Volumes 1–5, 44 chapters. In late 19th-century England, the young Jonathan Joestar meets his new adopted brother Dio Brando, who only wants to usurp Jonathan as heir to the Joestar family. However, his attempts are thwarted and he resorts to using an ancient Stone Mask which transforms him into a vampire. Jonathan, with Italian Hamon master Will A. Zeppeli and former street thug Robert E.O. Speedwagon at his side, uses his newly found affinity for Hamon to stop Dio whose sights are set on nothing less than world domination. With this Hamon, Jonathan has discovered the only power that can kill a Vampire, and thus is especially necessary in his rivalry against Dio, who has tormented him his whole life.
For those new to this series in Japanese, this is in the intermediate book clubs and I would call it that and beyond, depending on the part. Nevertheless, this’ll be a lot of fun. I think I’ll make a thread per volume (Tankobon release organization, for reference the original volume 1 is the first 8 chapters) and go like that.
Where to Acquire:
Ebay, Kindle, Japanese Amazon, eBook Japan, your local Kinokuniya, etc.
