The Japanator Awards 2015: Anthony's Top 5 Anime of the Year

The Anthony Awards for Anime
Dec 28
It's that time of the year to wax retrospective about the year we just had. Whether it was good or bad, we give this year a final look before looking forward to 2016. Today is my day to look back at my top 5 anime of 2015. Th...

The Japanator Awards 2015: Josh's Top 5 Anime of the Year

A Fistful of Honors
Dec 27
With this year on the wane and a new year imminent, it's time to reflect on what came before: Our life choices, the state of the world, and most importantly: The Japanese cartoons we watched! It's time for 2015's Japanator Aw...

No country for old Joestars
Jun 14
I really didn't want to have to do this recap, because we're right up against Stardust Crusaders' endgame, which means that the bodycount has to rise. And really, who likes to watch people die? Don't answer that!

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episode 45

The Cold Stab of Fear
May 31
As well as JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has held up after all these years, there are occasionally moments when you realize just how old it is. It could be a general feeling, like the absence of some more post-modern tricks o...

All Ye Who Enter Here
May 25
Well, it's been weeks since we last checked in with the Stardust Crusaders, a group name, which, come to think of it, doesn't make all that much sense in the grand scheme of things. I mean, sure there's a "Star" in "Star Platinum", and Egypt has a lot of dust, as well as a few Crusades, but...well, I guess it does make sense, after all. So let's carry on, then!    

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 36-37

How you greet people in Egypt
Apr 09
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure may be best known in this day and age for helping define the landscape of shonen storytelling conventions, but one thing that shouldn't be ignored is ome of the sheer creativity creator Hirohiko ...

Always bet on JoJo
Mar 24
What is this, a gambling anime? Actually, scratch that. The better question is: Why are two episodes of a battle anime portraying the drama of gambling better than a number of actual gambling anime?

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 28-33

Asking the important questions
Mar 07
It's been a while since we last checked in with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but the fun thing about this kind of story is that not a lot of plot movement happens from week to week. The true character of the series really only u...

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 25-27

Still Walking Like An Egyptian
Jan 24
It's been far too long, but after its season-long hiatus, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has returned to the airwaves!  And neither Joseph Joestar's Stand-user party nor the hardworking folks at David Production are wasting any time getting back in the saddle, as they dive into Egypt to hunt down Dio Brando once and for all.

Japanator Awards 2014: Sal's Top 5

Anime shorts need love too
Dec 28
It’s hard to believe that 2014 is almost over. While I didn’t get to watch a lot of anime shows during the year, there were still a few titles that brought joy to my life. I guess you could say that I was lucky wi...

Japanator Awards 2014: Josh's Top 5

A happy handful of faves for the holiday!
Dec 25
It's that time of the year, everyone. That time that tells us to think back on the year that just passed us by, and see what of it was best worth remembering. Memories made, lessons learned, and most importantly, Japanese car...

Megadeth helps you learn English Jojo style

How appropriate
Oct 27
Although I pretty much started ignoring Megadeth the day that lead singer Dave Mustane's public opinions started to swing to the far right, I used to be a pretty big fan. I actually had no idea that lead guitarist Marty Frie...

The Passion of the Polnareff
Sep 07
If the last couple of episodes seemed tailored towards characters who still hadn't forgiven Kakyoin for his actions way back in episode 2, this latest two-parter feels addressed to make Polnareff pay for his comparatively greater sins. After all, dude got Avdol, one of anime's best black men, killed. He needs to suffer.

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 18-20

Aug 16
After a bit of a wait, we're back with more Stardust Crusaders, and things get kind of nuts. Of course, that's hardly something we should be surprised by in a series called JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. But anyway, onward, dear readers! Rally ho!

Stardust Crusaders hoodies are JoJo's Bizarre Apparel

Wear 'em like arcana
Aug 07
Have you ever wanted a Stand of your very own? Too bad, they aren't real, but clothing brand BEAMS may have just brought us the next best thing, in the form of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure-themed hoodies, designed to look like St...

Annotated Anime: JoJo: Stardust Crusaders episode 17

A show of vengeance
Aug 02
When last we left Stardust Crusaders, a hostage situation was afoot. Steely Dan and his Stand, The Lovers, held poor old Joseph's brain hostage, with Jotaro turned into a 7-foot-tall punching bag, stripped of the ability to return the favor.  Boy, thank goodness payback's a b*tch, innit?

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 13-16

From road rips to head trips
Jul 20
One of the things I've grown to love about Stardust Crusaders is that it passes by quickly. It's amazing how I can basically leave the series for weeks on end and then catch up with all of them and remark "Wow, that was ...

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episode 12

Dirty old man
Jun 24
Is it just me, or is everyone in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure raised from birth on a steady diet of scenery? If they haven't, well, they sure can chew it! Not that that's a bad thing, mind you. In fact, it's the best thing. 

Surprise: JoJo: Stardust Crusaders' English Dub to stream on Crunchyroll

In which Crunchyroll catches us off guard
Jun 24
I don't know if this announcement is a figment of my imagination or not, but Crunchyroll's planning to stream three episodes of Stardust Crusaders' English dub on July 5th. If you're going to Anime Expo 2014, there's going to...

Me-gaane has gone Platinum

Running the gauntlet
Jun 14
Man, JoJo and his crew just can't catch a break, can they? I forget to watch the show for more than a month and come back to see the party under near-constant assault. You'd think someone didn't want them to make it all the way to Egypt, or something.

Annotated Anime: JoJo: Stardust Crusaders episode 5

Constantly menaced by tentacles
May 04
This week's episode of Stardust Crusaders marks not only the fifth week that we've been exposed to another dose of concentrated badassery, but also the moment when everyone we see in the intro is gathered together. Yep, ...

Annotated Anime: JoJo: Stardust Crusaders episode 4

Apr 26
Lemme get hyperbolic for a second here: It is virtually impossible to have more fun watching an anime than you can have watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. And I'm talking genuine, no-caveats, no-qualifications, no-j...

Annotated Anime: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 2-3

Walk Like An Egyptian
Apr 19
Well, we already knew that the first episode of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders was quite alright, but it's a sad reality of watching these kinds of programs that you can't just rely on the pilot alone to te...

Get ALL the Jojo swag at LAWSON convenience stores

I love tote bags and trinkets, how about you?
Mar 28
Oh, Jojo. You guys keep talking about it, and for some weird reason I still haven't watched it. I want to, but I'm busy. But you keep talking about it. And I want to be cool, too! Do you think if I head out to a LAWSON conven...

Spring hasn't really sprung for me in my neck of the woods yet, but it's officially the season of flower buds and abundant sunshine, no matter what my thermostat says. Fortunately, even if I have to wait a while for warm, bea...

The most Japanese-sounding "trs bien" you'll ever hear
Mar 14
The fourth and final teaser for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is finally here, and it's time to get French and slick up that hair of yours. Jean-Pierre Polnareff and his trusty Silver Chariot are all over this...

It's Kakyoin's time to shine in the third JoJo: Stardust Crusaders trailer

You don't even know how long it takes to prep that hair
Mar 07
Painting! Puppets! Crazy looking giant bugs! Yeah, I don't remember half of the stuff in this trailer appearing in the original OVAs, and I suppose that's exactly why I'm so excited for David Production to cover Stardust Cru...

It's Abdul's turn to star in a Stardust Crusaders teaser

Cairo, Egypt
Mar 02
The second of four Stardust Crusaders previews is now available, giving us a glimpse of the man from Cairo, Egypt. Mohammed Abdul and his stand Magician's Red are on full display, with even a guest appearance from a certain ...

Old coot Joseph appears in this Stardust Crusaders teaser

Feb 21
I have some rather fond memories of the original Stardust Crusaders anime, in particular the god awful English dub. There's nothing quite like seeing old man Joseph Joestar running about the place, screaming "Holly!" at ever...

Za Warudo! JoJo's new season to premiere next Spring

2014 is going to be the Year of the JoJo!
Nov 18
I don't know about you, but a part of me is wishing for 2013 to be over already. Other than Space Dandy's super amazing entry into the 2014 Winter Anime Season, the return of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is another fine treat to ...
