Get Back

Yesterday, the anime adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders finally ended. It was a fun ride but it was also really uneven. One of the things that disappointed me the most besides lots of QUALITY animation was the utter lack of Ronnie James Dio music in season 2. I mean, Araki (the mangaka/author, for those not familiar with JJBA) explicitly said that there are a crapton of Dio (the singer) references in Dio (the vampire). The World has scuba tanks as reference to Holy Diver; Dio is in Egypt as a reference to Egypt/The Chains are On. Yet neither song shows up in the series, not even in the Dio's World episodes. I think season 2 had more good/memorable fights than season 1. Overall, I think the Stardust Crusaders was pretty great.

Here's hoping that Unbreakable Like Diamond gets an adaptation.
