I might agree with that, but Roundabout isn't even the best track on Fragile.

edit: Actually no, popping in my Fragile cd again after a while, Roundabout is better than Holy Diver. Can't beat dat Yes bass.

Yes, basically all important characters and I believe all stands are named for a band/musician in some way or another.

It goes...

Part 1, 2, 3, and 7 characters = music references

First Set of Part 3 Stands = Tarot and Egyptian Cards

The rest of the Stands = music references

Part 5 characters = random Italian words, mostly food

Part 6 characters = fashion brands

Part 4 and Part 8 have the characters have what I assume are normal Japanese names, and I've never seen anything about those names being derived from Japanese musicians or anything.

It's less obvious, but... For example, "Yanguu Shigekiyo" is based on "Neil Young".

for the OP you can just have little brief descriptions about the cast

Well I could post the name of those 4 characters under the GIF with small descriptions about them, and that'd be it. Again I don't want to reveal a lot just for the sake of the few who are going in from the previous anime being their only/primary exposure to JoJo.

EDIT: Here's the update one what do you think, just waiting for a banner and i'll put it up.

Introduction
The bizarre adventures of the Joestar family continues in this animated adaptation of the 3rd Part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure; Stardust Crusaders.
Part 3 stars Kujo Jotaro who must travel with his Grandfather Joseph Joestar and a ragtag team of like fabulous people to Egypt in order to save his mother, Holly, from the unfortunate effects of the awakening of her Stand.
Part 3 is the most popular and more known of the JoJo series due to its introduction of Stands, which bestow upon their Users abilities and super powers. Outside Japan, it became popular thanks to Capcom releasing the Part 3 fighting game to the west on the PSX and Dreamcast.
The anime is set to be at 26 episodes long, and the studio has aimed to make it as action packed as the manga. The OP (Intro song) is titled Stand Proud by Jin Hashimoto.

The fashion models of this bizarre adventure


Kujo Jotaro is the star of this Part and is voiced by Daisuke Ono. At the start of this Part he jails himself out of worry of the evil spirit that possesses him.

Joseph Joestar, the main character from Part 2 returns as a badass Indiana Jones grandpa, and is voiced by Unshō Ishizuka.

Narioki Kakyoin, a schoolmate of Jotaro who joins the team to help save Holly. He is voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa.

Moh’d Abdul/Avdol is an acquaintance of Joseph, who traveled to Japan with him in order to get Jotaro out of jail and reveal the true nature of the evil spirit Jotaro was suspicious of.

Impressions from Part 3 first time GAFfers

Regarding Spoilers
Much like the Hunter x Hunter and previous JoJo anime threads, please keep all spoilers from the manga to a minimum as much as possible in this thread. If you want to talk more about the JoJo series, feel free to join us at the JoJo OT in Community

*re-watches Part 2 anime again*

I still can't believe Stroheim, a cyborg nazi Guile with a chest cannon, didn't make it into All-Star Battle as a playable character. Man, I sure hope him (& Weather Report) make it in for the sequel or whatever.

Kakyoin wasn't actually Jotaro's schoolmate right? I thought he just showed up in a school uniform to take out Jotaro.

I think he was an exchange student, which is why he has a different uniform...in Japan it's customary to wear your old uniform during your first year, I believe.

True, I still find it hard to believe he's "17"

Don't forget in the first chapters of Phantom Blood Jonathan's 12 but is built like a tank.

Game would lag whenever he shouts his name.

Yeah, there are a few characters I'm really disappointed didn't make it into ASB (Stroheim, WR, and Diego being the main ones). Part 6 & 7 kind of got shafted on playables.

Abbachio being the only non-playable member of Giorno's gang pisses me off.

He could've made a cool "mimic" character with Moody Blues.

Fontana, California baby!
I'm also hoping the ending to part 3 is still Roundabout. They could do this awesome ending collage showcasing parts 1, 2, and 3 with that song and it'd be so epic.

It'd probably work better thematically with Part 4, but they're really missing the mark if none of the series use Stand By Me.

Crunchyroll selling Jojo figures now too. I've been wanting that Soft & Wet figure for a while, might actually get it now.
Is it just me, or is it weird seeing some of the names unchanged after all the altered names in All-Star Battle? Like, Polnareff is still the same & I'm sure names that'll be changed like Aerosmith is there as well. Is it because it ships from Japan or something?

Though damn that Stroheim one is cool....& expensive.

I'm getting the feeling that the ASB translation is just something to get it out and won't necessarily apply to any later Jojo stuff. And yeah the Stroheim figure turned out great.

I want to see if they keep the height changes when Koichi beats dudes in Part 4. I think that's his true Stand power.

Also I'm so excited for The Invincible Trio translation to finish, it's so close now!

I think the funny part is, in the close up on his shoes, his right leg is over his left, but in the full body shot, his left leg is over his right.

In between a single panel Rohan decided to switch the position of his legs.

So fabulous.

...I just now noticed how his shoe's zipper goes up to his pants/trousers.
How on earth would he be able to put it on or take it off?
