Ratings & Reviews
Really, Warner Bros?
by Scott -
This show is a 5/5 by far. The 1 star here is for the product itself. The show comes with English and Japanese audio. The only English subtitles for the Japanese audio however are CC for the dub. The menus are even worse. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CO-yChnVAAAANz3.jpg There is one example. I would recommend the show but not this product. A huge company like Warner Bros. should know better.
What was Warner thinking?
The menu, if you can even call it that, look's like it was made by a 5 year old using a template in IDVD. Bootlegs are put together better than this garbage of a release. If you want to support Jojo try to import the sets. They are more expensive, but you at least get what you pay for. They did this with the Green Lantern Animated Series as well. Something needs to be done to let companies know they can't pull nonsense like this, especially with a classic series like Jojo
Great but only if you watch dubbed
If you plan to watch this subbed then avoid because as mentioned many times its CC from dub script. However if you only care to watch it dubbed then this set is well worth it.
Yes the menu sucks but its not a big deal, what actually matters is the video quality and thankfully Warner did that well.
The English dub by Bang Zoom is solid, well cast and a lot of fun.

I couldn't believe it, but it's true. The subs are the closed captions for the dub. As in, with speaker's name and sound effects in square brackets, and so on. An absolutely pathetic effort on a release. I'm amazed.
My rating is purely for the release, not the content.
I you like watching dubs you like this set

The overall content is lacking, but the dub is top amazing.
The dub is very good, so buy the dvd just for that. Actual dvd sucks but the picture quality is good so no reason not to buy it.
You're better off importing the Japanese Blu-rays.
The rating isn't for the show or the dub, but rather for the experience watching it.
>No bonus features.
>Dubtitles. Even worse, they're closed captions, with speaker's name and sound effects.
>Only collector's item is a chip box in a similar fashion to a Funimation release.
>Unskippable credits after each episode.
>After the episode is done, the DVD boots you back to the episode selection menu.
>The menus are boring. In fact, they're the same ones used for The Lego Movie DVD.
>Like I said, you're better off importing the Japanese Blu-rays, although they're somewhat pricey. However, they're worth it given they have English subtitles and collector's items (i.e, music CDs, art books, T-shirts, mousepad, phone/DS/PSP dangler, USB flash drive).
>Thank god for Viz's recent Blu-ray announcement. Bad news is Warner still has the DVD rights so we have to endure this torture again for Stardust Crusaders and Diamond Is Unbreakable.
