JoJo ~Sono Chi no Sadame~, by Tominaga “TOMMY” Hiroaki.
The opening theme from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is the raddest thing I’ve listened to all week. On that note, this show is bringing out my inner teenage boy that I didn’t know I had.
When an episode starts, my mind goes all: OMG. ACTION. MUSCLES. ZOMBIES. MAGIC. VIOLENCE. WOAH. COOL DUDE.
Is it a legitimately good show, though? I’m only five episodes in, and I’m enjoying it so far. The art style is unique, the colors vibrant enough to reflect the show’s high energy levels, and as you can tell from the opening track, the music is just as wild.
I only have one complaint, but it’s a big one: what does that Erina lady even do besides be a love interest for JoJo? Okay, so she also gives us another reason to hate Dio, but it’s not like we’d have hated him any less without her in the script. I can overlook her dullness for now, though; there’s still time for character development. Besides, this show is more of an action than a romance, and in that context, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is excellent!
I’ve been reading the original Transformers comics, and this Donny character is hysterical in the way he sasses Megatron and Co. as though he gives zero damns that these are giant robot alien space tyrants.
As long as I’m on the subject, I dig Circuit Breaker too, though she’s a much more serious character, insane with rage and desperation after being paralyzed during a Decepticon attack.
Man, I’m sorry that this one is so late! Gotta get those creative chemicals flowing through my brain again.
Do you love/hate/don’t feel strongly about this character?
I don’t think I was crazy about him at first, but he grew on me. The character development paid off bigtime with this fella. Currently I absolutely love the guy!
What’s your favorite trait of this character?
I think the ARC reactor thing in his chest is cool. It gives him a unique character design as well as a sense of vulnerability that you wouldn’t expect from a guy who is otherwise a bit too douchey.
What’s your favorite moment/even involving this character?
I’m mostly just familiar with him from what I’ve seen in the live-action films. That said, I was very invested in his character development by the third film. I loved how that movie was less about Iron Man and more about Tony Stark as a person. Most memorably was a scene in which he thought he was getting a heart attack but was actually experiencing high levels of anxiety. A superhero having anxiety like us regular peasants? Rad as heck. Also I think this was the movie in which he gives Pepper a giant stuffed animal as an apology gift, which I thought was just too adorable.
If you could have one power/attribute/etc. of this character, what would it be?
If I had Tony’s smarts, I could handle just about anything. For everything else, I could use those masculine charms.
When did you fall in love/hate with this character? If you don’t have any strong feelings toward them, why not?
Like I said above in less words, my first impression of him was that he’s a douchey Marvel version of Batman. I didn’t start loving him until Iron Man 3. In the Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon, he’s pretty much lovable in every episode that he appears in. In particular, I got extremely excited for him in an episode in which he went to Asgard and got special armor made by Dwarves, but I’m pretty sure I was fond of him before that.
Who’s your OTP for this character?
Man, this is tricky. As I’ve said previously, I ship him strongly with Star-Lord, but I haven’t mentioned that I also happen to be very into seeing him with Thor. But if we’re talking one-true-pairings, I honestly have to go with Captain America/Tony Stark. He and Steve just have this deep emotional/friendship connection, except that sometimes it seems like it’s much more than that. At least, I could easily believe that they’re a thing. A wonderful thing, indeed!
All right, I’ve moved all my things into the apartment and finally dug through enough boxes to get my computer set up, which means I can finally draw stuff, play Diablo III with Flib, and watch that JoJo anime that khazadspoon suggested.
I accidentally left my phone at home yesterday, so rather than check Tumblr on my work breaks, I drew on sticky notes with pens, highlighters, and white-out. Also pictured are some old cartoon doodles of our late newt Mr. Pebbles enjoying all the things that Mr. Pebbleses do.
You can see my creativity and artistic tendencies still managing to break through the static monotony of the office.
Sorry if I seem kinda bummed for a time. Our firebelly newt passed on last night and it’s all kinda difficult for me right now.
Mr. Pebbles was the best newt and was very smart and good at hunting (even though his food was already dead, but we never told him that). He was very fat and happy for the time he spent with us. Even though he didn’t stay as long as we thought he would, we definitely managed to help him eat and hang out longer than he might have before we adopted him. We love you, Mr. Pebbles. May your spirit continue to enjoy all the feedings.
