What is the Appeal of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure?

My first blog post for Suitably Bored, a blog I recently became a contributing writer for. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Suitably Bored

You thought this was going to be a typical blog post, BUT IT WAS ME, DIO! (props to you if you got that joke) The Jojo series is…well, bizarre really – hell, it’s even in the name. Jojo can mean many things to different people; for some it can be seen as a parody of popular genres and tropes or as the manliest series they’ve ever seen. The series has been around since the late 80s, but to this day its influence is still being felt. It has spawned an anime series, a series of memes (cue “To Be Continued” meme) and video games just to name a few. What, then, is the appeal of Jojo and why has it been able to create such a large fan base over the years?
