JORGE JOESTAR (JUMP j BOOKS)
About this deal
All I knew about it going in was it was meant to be a story about Jorge Joestar, and that's really all I'd recommend people to know going in, too much more and you'll ruin the surprise.
Character Title: Though he's generally known as George Joestar II in canon, he's renamed "Jorge" due to growing up in a Spanish-speaking locale. In the middle of the fight, Jorge ends up disfiguring half of Diego's face and Dio falls off of the castle, supposedly killing him. Maybe the fan translator just cut every sentence referencing that little tidbit, but somehow I doubt it.I also like when he summarizes the events of the plot as the narrator at some moments in the story to point out just how ridiculous the story is and also just to help the reader understand what's going on. Of course, as one would expect, Ultimate Dio is the final boss of this story, and possibly of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure altogether. Novela del universo Jojo's Bizarre Adventure que transcurre entre la Part 1: Phantom's Blood y la Part 2: Battle Tendency. Took a Level in Badass: George grows out of his meekness to become a proper man, and then becomes a pilot in the Royal Air Force who battles zombies with his airplane. Jorge Joestar dares to step foot out of the bounds of it's source material whilst still adhering to the same ideas and concepts found within.
It was well known within the Jojo fandom that the Jorge Joestar novel was pretty out there so I had an idea of what I was getting into when I started reading. Frankly, this novel is extremely underrated in the JoJo community, I suspect this is because most of the people who talk about it seem to have never read it and just use it as a source of unfunny memes whilst spreading mistruths about it because they've been told that it is not a legitimate piece of literature, which couldn't be further from the truth. Reference Overdosed: To most, if not all, previous books of Maijo Otaro up to having characters from them, such as Tsukumojuku Kato and Japan Detectives Club. When cured and learning of Dio's treachery, feeling responsible for doting Dio, George stands by as the constables Jonathan has brought proceed to arrest Dio.
However, three people, along with their Stands, still exist in their original form from the original JoJo universe. Set in the 20th century after Made In Heaven resets the world exactly thirty-six times, it focuses on kid detective Joji Joestar who, while investigating a recent string of incidents, comes across a boy detective named Tsukumojuku Kato, who has somehow travelled between universes. Continuity Porn: Joji's side of the story pulls characters and settings from every single part (at the time, anyway), as well as from some Maijo's earlier novels. Narancia is pretty fun, Pucci is better than ever, Lisa Lisa is great, Ultimate Kars is honestly better than he was in Part 2, etc.
The most apparent example is when he mistakenly believes Dario Brando saved his life, though the latter was actually attempting to rob him of his possessions. I was reading this book when going back after watching Parts 1-5 of the recent Jojo anime, completely up to date as of the time writing this review. His unique background, complete with his initial meekness, make him a target for bullying at school, whether it's in La Palma or in England. Also Funny's offspring is an astronaut, who is going to Mars, to check the newly discovered third moon ?Near the end of his part, he also gains a headband that also resembles the one worn by Star Platinum. As an adult, Jorge has a blue T-shirt, black jeans and a shoulder pad with a square spiral pattern, much like his Stand's shoulder pads, his hair is now styled slightly upwards. Even when George understands this to some extent, he shows his generosity by claiming that he willingly gave his ring to Dario and easily gets him out of jail. Even though it is 768-page long, most of the language it uses isn't very difficult, in comparison to NisiOisiN's books this one wasn't very difficult to read, even though I would say I just understood about 85% of it.
A story that took place between Parts 1 and 2 and what would no doubt be a relatively charming side-story of a WWI fighter pilot, plus the eventual doom we knew he would meet. There's a Jonathan who is blood related to Dio (they're brothers), both of whom died during a Train robbery. Being involved in the multiversal crisis along with Jorge, she is later killed by Yoshikage Kira (though all of these events no longer happen after the restoration of the multiverse). The only canon JoJo light novels are Purple Haze Feedback, and maybe Over Heaven since this game has DIO's Over Heaven costume and is about him reaching heaven. These Kars possess many Stands amongst themselves including U Boat, D4C Ultimate, Whitesnake Ultimate, C-Moon Ultimate Requiem, The World Ultimate,and Dune.I do not believe there is an English fan translation out there, but I did find the next best thing on Tumblr, a complete play-by-play someone did in providing an extensive summary.
