It has the CGI style from the Parts 1-3 OPs, which already won me over, and the colorful, upbeat energy of the OPs 1 and 3 of Part 4.

At this point, any gushing from my part will sound like a redundancy of all the thing I've said about JoJo and this part specifically, so I can only say that I LOVE it Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The return of CG and a female vocalist fitting for the first female-lead JoJo season!

Well, as the article mentiones the OP was made by the same studio who did the Parts 1-3 OPs.

Pretty funny that Tomokazu Ski is playing a preist heavily questioning his religion, considering he plays the opposite role on Fate/Zero. Actually, Pucci and spoiler[Dio] are very similar to Kirei and Gilgamesh. I wonder if Nasu or Urobuchi were influenced...

The OP's visuals are excellent, but the song is absolutely terrible.

Ironically, Pucci was played by Jouji Nakata before in ASB and Eyes of Heaven.

Am I the only one who isn't feeling this song? I very much agree a female vocalist really fits this part but it sounds so freaking mediocre. Compare this to the epic opening themes of Part 1-3 or the very upbeat and sentimental Great Days.

That was my initial impression as well. At most I would say it might sound a bit formulaic as it does sound mostly like other JoJo Op's. At least to me. Not that it's bad, just "typical" and what I would've expected I suppose.

It sounds like music from Splatoon and that ain't a bad thing.

Gonna be honest, while the visuals are fun, I’m more interested in what the ED will be than the OP. But that’s JoJo for you.

TLC would the perfect group for the ending theme.
