JOJO had weird as hell looking art to start with, it's just that everyone isn't built and broad shouldered this time around.

In the manga the artsyle shifted halfway through part 4 going from Fist of The North Star lookalikes to a more rounded and flamboyant artstyle. I guess for the anime adaptation they're using the second art style throughout all of part 4.

Yeah, I can see how they deviated from Araki's art style this time around. It's in the eyes.

Also, Koichi's voice is wayyyy too deep. I get that they wanted to portray him as an ordinary high school kid, just really short and with a babyface, but still. I definitely imagine his voice as being higher pitched, similar to how someone like Mayumi Tanaka might portray him.

But all that aside, I'm PSYCHED! David Production is doing great and I love the "specific promo in a specific place at a specific time on a specific video screen downtown" idea. Very excited that Viz and Crunchyroll have already jumped on this. Jojo is finally making the jump from obscure-ish 80s Jump (pun spotted) cult classic to hot new anime franchise.

I'm sorry, but I hate Yuuki Kaji as Kōichi. I think he's really miscast here. Other than that, it looks great. I also can't wait to see the OP.
