Koichi screaming

Koichi screaming DEFAULT

Hirokazu Kore-eda (2011)

BY THE END OF CELEBRATED DIRECTOR Hirokazu Kore-eda’s delightful 2011 fable I Wish, two preteen brothers, living in different towns with their separated parents, will have traveled across the Japanese countryside with a gaggle of school friends to watch two bullet trains speed past each other at a new track point. They have heard that when the trains meet, “Because of the intense energy, whoever sees it, their wish will come true.”

It is the elder of the brothers (played by real-life siblings Koki and Oshiro Maeda), the conservative twelve-year-old Koichi, whose yearning to see his family reunited spurs their adventure. The younger brother, Ryunosuke, a live-wire but also more of a pragmatist, recognizes that this would not be for the best. Though he is less mature in almost every other respect, he is wiser than Koichi about his parents’ marriage. We’re shown Ryunosuke’s memory of their parents shouting over the dining table and Koichi caught up in it all, while completely unnoticed, Ryi has slipped away with his bowl to eat elsewhere. As far as Ryi is concerned, Koichi has a rose-colored view of their family life together, and Ryi has no desire to return to what he remembers. But both boys hope to meet up, and their plan attracts followers.

I Wish is a charming and rather slow-burning tale about childhood dreams, and it succeeds at capturing the moment when youthful innocence dissolves. The focus on the preteen years has a touching accuracy: the children’s heads remain full of fantasy and wonder even as they are beginning to understand life’s reality.

Kore-eda has explained: “Children think that everything is possible, and everything is centered around them. But it doesn’t last past a certain age. When something is lost, we think it’s sad and depressing, and we view it as a negative event. But we call it ‘growing up.’ I think it is wondrous.”

What makes Kore-eda’s tale worthwhile for grown-ups is that his vision is so inclusive. The film’s Japanese title is Kiseki, or “miracle,” and as far as Kore-eda is concerned, the miracle happens whenever loss and growth occur at the same time, at any age: “Human life too is a continuous miracle if you look at it that way. Not just for children.”

Throughout I Wish, we see adults come alive to new experiences. Age, we come to realize, need not quell new beginnings and new joys, even as adult responsibilities bring limitations and the years bring disappointments. In one lovely sequence, in a small town near the track point, the sweet, pretty Megumi arrives on the doorstep of an elderly couple, pretending she is their granddaughter who lives far away. They know full well she’s lying, but they nevertheless invite her and her young friends to stay the night. As the children set off the following morning, one of the girls runs back to ask if the couple wants anything wished for themselves. They can only respond: “We couldn’t have asked for anything better than yesterday.” Their act of hospitality was repaid by the vitality and color the young strangers brought into their home.

The genius and depth of I Wish lie not simply in capturing the way life’s wonder can appear at any time, if we only open our eyes to it. Kore-eda also recognizes the way new joys can find space amid our struggles. We don’t always get what we want, but that need not be the end of our story. (Interestingly, I Wish is now the first in a trilogy of compassionate films Kore-eda has made about blended or divided families, followed by Like Father, Like Son in 2013 and Our Little Sister in 2015.)

Open-hearted artists understand that something not working out as planned does not mean the exercise was futile. Serendipity is part of the creative process. When Koichi’s grandfather, a retired cake maker, tries a new recipe, the result has neither the color nor flavor he expected. At first Koichi is disappointed, but over time he will come to appreciate such subtle surprises—a hint of a newfound maturity that began to emerge at the track point.

As the trains pass, the children scream their wishes through the security fence, expressing different stages of childhood. Some are mundane (“I want to run faster!”); others speak of confusion and heartache (“Make Dad quit gambling!”)—and we cannot be sure any of them truly believe their wishes will come true. In the communal shouting, each child has expressed his most personal desires. They are prayers of a sort, cries in the dark, dreams, wishes, hopes—or moments of acceptance.

As with Kore-eda’s earlier acclaimed After Life (1998), in which recently departed people get to choose one memory from their lives to carry for eternity, we are shown the value of certain tiny moments. These children will always recall their wish by the side of the railway, and the journey to that experience and what unexpectedly emerged at that moment prove vital steps towards maturity. The world of dreams, desires, and wishes is shown to be an integral part of life’s journey.

Funny / JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable

  • Also comedic in a rather dark manner is all the shit that Kira goes through in order to get back his 'girlfriend'. It almost seems like something from a Three Stooges show. What it leads to, however...
  • An anime exclusive moment of funny, after it is revealed Sheer Heart Attack survived Jotaro's Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs. It suddenly jumps to presumably the end of another long series of punches, to the ending riff of 'A Party of Stardust' from part 3.
  • Koichi's Let's Get Dangerous! moment is both awesome and this, as his boast ends up going off track waytoo fast (Japanese version only).

    "Why do I have to think that I'd rather be looking for a public restroom while I have diarrhea if I could only get out of this situation safely?"

  • Echoes Act 3 has disabled Sheer Heart Attack by increasing its weight. Sheer Heart Attack is linked to Kira's left hand. Which leads to the very satisfying sight of better-than-you jackass Yoshikage Kira being yanked to the ground by his suddenly-50-kilogram left hand.
    • Right before this, we have what is essentially a Double Subversion of a Hope Spot. ACT 3 jumps in to save Koichi, using his new special move Three Freeze. The attack lands... and Sheer Heart Attack shrugs it off just like all the other attacks it's tanked. Koichi goes right back to freaking out until ACT 3 points out what Three Freeze actually does.
    • Not just that, but what follows is a hilarious Humiliation Conga for Kira as he unintentionally causes property damage with his left hand, is forced to pay for it, and then gets beat up by some random thugs.
    • What's even funnier is Koichi sticking the sound effect for heat sizzle in front of Sheer Heart Attack and allowed to run around the room while he was thinking.
    • Kira's revenge for this:

      Kira: By the way, you wouldn't happen to have any tissues on hand, would you? A handkerchief would also do. What is this? I've gone out of my way to pay you my respects; the least you could do is converse with me.
      Koichi: I don't have any...
      Kira: No worries... feel free to use mine.
      [Kira punches Koichi in the face.]
      Kira: Quickly now! Your nose is gushing blood! I offered it so you could clean yourself up.

    • After said revenge, Kira notices how Koichi wears his socks inside out and goes through all the trouble of fixing Koichi's socks (and putting his shoes back on) before trying to deliver the finishing blow on him. Even funnier is that him staying to do this gives Jotaro enough time to wake up and beat Kira within an inch of his life, leading to the events that comprise the second half of the Part. Kira's ultimate downfall came because he couldn't leave Koichi's socks alone!
  • Jotaro makes a really silly (but still badass) one-liner once he finally confronts Kira.

    Jotaro: Nice watch. Go ahead and take one last look at it. 'Cause I'm about to bust it up. To be clear by "it", I mean your face.

    • Then after kicking the shit out of him he gets closer to the astonished Kira and delivers the line again.

    Jotaro: Good freakin' grief. I take it back. Up close, that watch is tacky as hell. Although, to be fair, that's the least of your worries now. There's something that's gonna be a lot worse than that piece of junk... And that, my friend, is your putrid face.

    • It's even funnier in the anime because Kira had said DIO's famous Catchphrasewhich leads one to believe Kira got beaten up because of just one word.
    • In the anime, Jotaro tries prying Sheer Heart Attack apart by its jaws. For the first time in its entire existence, it indicates it can feel something.

      Sheer Heart Attack: Ow. ow. ow ow ow OW OW-

    • In a more darkly-hilarious example, the dry cleaner that Kira has Sheer Heart Attack target is trembling in pain and fear as Sheer Heart Attack slowly climbs up on his shoulder, saying its catchphrase, "Look over here" in a menacing baritone. When the man doesn't seem to respond, SHA then gets offended and demands the man's attention like a greaser who just got the cold shoulder.

      Sheer Heart Attack: Hey, didn't you hear me? I said look over here.

  • During the Atom Heart Father fight, Jotaro manages to find a way to circumvent Yoshihiro's picture powers by taking a photograph of Yoshihiro's own photo so he's standing by himself. Yoshihiro tries to escape but Star Platinum straight up obliterates Yoshihiro's polaroid camera. Jotaro grabs him, slooowly folds his picture in half, before slamming it shut, vigoriously taping the picture and attaching the photo to a wall with a thumbtack. All that can be heard is Yoshihiro's muffled screaming, which sounds like a choking seagull.
  • The entirety of the arc, "I Am An Alien!", definitely deserves mention. Especially Mikitaka turning into a pair of dice and landing a perfect roll... while making Bruce Lee noises which even Josuke calls him out on.
    • The subsequent dice game scam that Josuke tries on Rohan afterward. There's something darkly hilarious about Rohan and Josuke laughing with each other during their game, then Rohan slamming a knife into his own hand and cutting his finger off to show he's not fucking around. And Rohan's house burning down yet Rohan not giving a damn about it because he's obsessed with trying to uncover Josuke's act of cheating.
      • The reveal of the latter part; Rohan and Tamami (called in as an impartial judge) are carefully studying the dice. Just when you think the sirens of passing fire trucks have given Mikitaka away (sirens make him break out in a rash in any form)...

      Tamami: I've figured it out! The sirens were coming here! Your house is on fire!

    • During the aftermath of Rohan's house burning down (which he's convinced was caused by Josuke), Rohan keeps his cool.

    Josuke: Uh, sorry about yesterday. The fire was, um, pretty bad, right?

    Rohan: Yeah. I had a complete replica of the Drexel Heritage furniture used in the movie Pretty Woman, valued at 2.5 million, which was damaged beyond repair. Not that I care or anything.

  • When Josuke finally catches up to Yuya Fungami, the user of the Highway Star Stand that nearly killed him and Rohan in the town's hospital, he finds that Fungami is merely a bed-ridden invalid, who tries to appeal to Josuke's good nature by asking whether he would really bully a weak and helpless cripple. To this, Josuke responds by healing his injuries with Crazy Diamond, and THEN while Yuya is ecstatic about his recovery:

    Josuke: Yup, you're all better now...it's a fair fight now, right?"

    Yuya:Oh. Crap.

    • Crazy Diamond then proceeds to beat Yuya out of the window and into a fountain. The funny part is the narration following: "Yuya Fungami hospitalization extended. Josuke warns, 'If you so much as think about using Highway Star to heal yourself, I'll come back and beat you bloody again.'" Then comes another punchline: "Although being nursed back to health by adoring fangirls might not be such a bad thing..."
    • Let's not forget that Josuke got some nutrients back by drinking IV fluids.
  • Also from the Highway Star arc, we have Josuke snatching a cell phone from a stranger while speeding up at 70 km/h on Rohan's motorcycle, it broke unfortunately....so he had to snatch another phone shortly after.
    • Which is made funnier because his explicit power is repairing things and the people he snatched them from had important phone calls comically interrupted. There is no explanation for why he couldn't just fix the phones.
  • When Koichi is trying to find the hospital room that Yuya Fungami is in, the nurse refuses to tell him (visiting hours were over). Echoes Act Three's proposed solution?

    Echoes Act 3: Okay, master! Let's kill da ho! Biiiiiiiiitch!

  • The beginning of the fight between Rohan and Ken Oyanagi (the RPS Kid). Before Rohan starts taking it seriously, he's just annoyed by Ken constantly appearing in his way and challenging him to rock-paper-scissors. So much so that he hauls off and punches him in the face. Let's repeat that: Rohan literally punched a 6th grader in the face because he kept annoying him.

    Rohan: There, I chose rock.

    • Rohan's being more Jerkass than usual this episode. He happens to run into Josuke, Okuyasu, and Yukako. Josuke invites him to join them, and Rohan mentally notes: "Perfect: a self-absorbed jerkoff, a moron, and a bitch, three people I have absolutely nothing in common with."
    • The anime adds this; when Rohan cheats using Shizuka Joestar (the invisible baby) and explains how he did so, we see Shizuka coo out what sounds like "Boom!" and strike a pose herself! She's learning, people.
  • As terrifying as Cheap Trick really is, some of the lengths its carriers go to avoid showing their back to people can get pretty silly.
  • One particularly hilarious, if somewhat twisted, moment is when Cheap Trick possesses Ronan for the first time, resulting in the following exchange

    Cheap Trick: Piggyback please? (Rohan looks around with a visible Oh, Crap! on his face)

  • Certainly an unintentional one, but some people on the net clarified some of Josuke's claims...
  • The fight with Cheap Trick puts Rohan through all kinds of humiliation, including an odd scene where the Stand gathers a mob of cats and dogs to attack Rohan. It's funny enough on its own, given that this is Rohan we're talking about... but once you remember all the times JoJo relied on villainous animal abuse and look at Rohan as a not-quite-Author Avatar, this scene suddenly reads as Araki giving the animals a chance at some payback.
  • When Koichi wants Echoes Act 3 to use its powers to convince a nurse to tell him about the John Doe staying in the hospital and what room he's in, it responds with "Okay, Master! Let's kill da ho!" followed by a Battle Cry of "Biiiiiiitch!"
    • Many people assumed this was a line from the infamous Duwang Scans, but no. It was from the original, hand-written by Araki himself.note And anyone listening to the dub may wonder why Act 3 is talking like he's in a Blaxploitation film and would be surprised to learn this is not a translation but simply Viz preserving as much English as it can.
    • Also there's something funny when Koichi was indirectly telling that nurse that she just shooed him away and now asking for help, he managed to slip in Joseph's Catchphrase in it:

    Are you going to get in trouble with your boss if those break? Then you're going to be like "OH MY GOD!" Isn't it?note Sadly, this was one time Viz didn't keep the OH MY GOD, instead using the space to have Koichi Troll the nurse about her predicament.

  • While it's a very tense scene and Kira as Kosaku is probably at his most creepy there's something oddly humorous about how he explains to Minako how he's not angry at her despite her calling his nail clippers geeky.
  • The hilariously Off-Modelportrayal of Stray Cat in some of the moments.
    • Anime-exclusive moment related to Stray Cat: many people have found the narrator saying "Meow!" when narrating his thoughts to be unintentionally hilarious.
    • Adding to this, there's something inherently amusing about the fact that the arc's Big Bad, a serial killer with the ability to blow up anything, nearly meets his end at the hands of a dead cat who was reincarnated into a plant. Even better is method for surviving the fight: He throws a golf ball at his opponent. Being a cat, it promptly stops paying attention to Kira in favour of playing with the ball.
  • A small one, but as the story goes on it becomes hilarious just how few precautions Kira puts into keeping his serial killer status a secret. Ranging from taking his "girlfriend's" hand out in public places like the park and a sandwich shop, not bothering to lock the door behind him when killing people, to outright stating his identity when looking for Hayato in the attic, while believing full well he was in there. It's a small wonder Kira believes fate to be on his side. If it wasn't, he definitely would've been caught by now.
  • A darkly amusing moment happens as Kira performs one of the last murders in the series, is when he's accosted by a neighborhood creep, shortly after Josuke, Okayasu and Hayato take cover in a house. Kira gets accused of being a panty-thief, and as Kira walks away the creep sees a pair of panties hanging on a branch. The creep just cannot help himself, but while Kira had turned the undies into a bomb with Killer Queen, the creep actually dies feeling quite elated and lucky.
  • Another from Kira which has become a meme itself:

    Kira: When I was a kid, I saw Mona Lisa from my garmmar school art book. The first time I saw her, with hands on her knee... How do I say this... I had a boner.

    • Even funnier is that despite coming from the Duwang translation, it's actually completely accurate, down to the use of the word "boner" (the page has the kanji for "erection" in it).
    • And then there's the dubbed anime, which manages to drop all pretense despite actually censoring the scene (at least, for TV on On-Demand; it's uncensored on home video releases):

      Kira: When I was a young boy, I remember discovering Leonardo da Vinci's enigmatic Mona Lisa while leafing through a tome of the master's works. It was my first time laying eyes on her! The beauty before me, well, it aroused something in me... it gave me a rock-hard *BEEP*.

  • The fact that, after all of his cunning and running victory laps around the heroes, Yoshikage Kira was ultimately done in by something as mundane and ironic as being run over by an ambulance.
  • Joseph Joestar leaves the story for good the same way he came in: getting his wallet stolen by a strapped-for-cash but otherwise good-hearted young man.
    • To elaborate: Josuke is at the pier to see Joseph, Jotaro, and Shizuka off on their yacht, and after confirming that Joseph has a picture of Tomoko in his wallet like Josuke asked... Josuke reveals the ripped-out edge of the photo, and promptly uses Crazy Diamond to reforge the picture, dragging Joseph's wallet along for the ride, and thus takes the money in it. Probably payback for the time Joseph drained Josuke's bank account buying stuff for the invisible baby. He even taunts Joseph that having the latter keeping the picture would just further incite Suzi Q's wrath again. This, after musing to Jotaro about the people of Morioh being good and reminding him of their friends back during Stardust Crusaders. Some things never change, huh, Joseph?
    • Joseph's reaction. He's pissed at first, but just sighs and smiles. After all, like father, like son, eh? And Josuke replies in kind by fondly wishing him well.

    JoJo: The 15 Worst Things Jotaro Ever Did, Ranked

    Jotaro Kujo is arguably the most recognizable JoJo in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. He's also the JoJo that makes the most appearances throughout the series, appearing in four out of the eight parts. At the end of the day, Jotaro is one of the more heroic protagonists in the series but he's no gentleman.

    RELATED: JoJo: The 10 Worst Things Giorno Ever Did, Ranked

    Because of the tough-guy attitude that he puts on, inspired by his hero Clint Eastwood, Jotaro has led himself to do some not so heroic things. He's one of the members of the Joestar family tree that's most popular with fans, yet he's also an individual who loves to cross a line and play by his own rules.

    Updated by Daniel Kurland on September 7th, 2021: Jotaro Kujo remains especially compelling because of his generally closed off nature and how it keeps himself at a distance despite appearing in a considerable amount of the series. It’s undeniable that Jotaro is one of the most powerful and important characters in the JoJo universe, but he’s far from a saint and is responsible for some actions that would have most members of the Joestar family scratching their heads.

    15 He Chooses Marine Biology Over Family & Friends

    There’s some considerable character development throughout JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure,especially for the individuals who get to mature across several parts of the series. Jotaro Kujo is present for a lot of material, yet the amount of character growth that he experiences remains at a minimum.

    Nevertheless, a big shift that occurs off-screen between Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable is that Jotaro apparently turns to marine biology. Jotaro is obviously entitled to his passions, but this new interest dominates him in a way where his progress with his Stand suffers and he leaves the people that care about him.

    14 He "Dines & Ditches" At Restaurants

    JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure hits such extreme heights that more mundane details like who foots the bill at dinner become rather unimportant. That being said, just because Jotaro Kujo leads a busy life and has larger priorities, that doesn’t give him the right to overlook payment and upend the rules that govern society.

    Jotaro treats money like a technicality that doesn’t apply to him and it leaves others shortchanged with him completely unsympathetic on the matter. It’s not a major deal, but Jotaro has definitely ruined some servers’ days.

    13 He’s Responsible For Jolyne’s Endangerment From Pucci

    Stone Ocean becomes such a thrilling installment in the growing JoJo saga due to how it wraps up the series’ main storyline in many ways and involves a team effort from Jotaro and his estranged daughter, Jolyne. Jolyne and her allies become the targets of Emporio Pucci and are ultimately killed by him, only for the universe to reset itself until it reaches a peaceful timeline without Pucci.

    RELATED: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 10 Ways Jolyne Is Nothing Like Jotaro

    Nevertheless, it’s Jotaro and the knowledge that he possesses that is Pucci’s target. Jolyne and company only get involved after Jotaro’s life is threatened, making their struggles karmically his fault.

    12 He Surrenders To The Mercy Of Some Rats

    Diamond is Unbreakable is one of the strangest chapters in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure in many ways. Part 4’s slice of life aesthetic is a change of pace, but one that works in an eccentric manner. One of the most bizarre episodes involves Jotaro and Josuke on a rat hunt, only these rodents are strengthened from the power of the Stand Arrow courtesy of Akira Otoishi.

    Jotaro’s Stand can easily take care of some rats and his cool demeanor gets destroyed through the fear that he exhibits through this. Everything that he does in this scenario is off base.

    11 He Leaves Jolyne & Her Mother Uneducated On Stands

    Jotaro’s abandonment of his daughter, Jolyne, is well documented and becomes the driving force of Part 6’s Stone Ocean. Jotaro’s absence in this area is something that he struggles and attones for throughout Stone Ocean,but he’s also negligent in a totally other way. When Jolyne’s Stand powers are activated, she’s completely oblivious on the matter.

    Jotaro leaves his family high and dry, but he at least could have given Jolyne’s mother information about Stands so that Jolyne could properly prepare for this inevitability and even enter Green Dolphin Street Prison prepared for this outcome.

    10 He Beats Up Innocent Civilians Because He Thinks They're Stand Users

    It might be expected from someone with a Stand specializing in punching things, but it still doesn't seem very heroic. During the Wheel of Fortune arc, the Stardust Crusaders find themselves pursued by a murderous car and its driver. The car turns out to be the Stand Wheel of Fortune but its user remains unknown to the Jobros.

    RELATED: JoJo: 5 Stand Users DIO Can Defeat (& 5 He Can't)

    When they make a pit stop for some refreshments, they notice the car parked nearby and three suspicious-looking guys, each who might be the Stand user. Without a sure-fire to determine who the Stand user is, Jotaro decides the best way to find the Stand user is to beat up all three guys. Luckily, Kakyoin stopped him before things progressed any further.

    9 He Ends Up Arrested & In Jail

    The first fans ever see of Jotaro is behind bars. When Stardust Crusaders begins, Jotaro had already been locked away. His mother, Holly, comes to pick him up but he refuses to leave. He didn't know it yet, but he had unlocked his Stand, Star Platinum, in a fight against thugs armed with nunchucks and knives.

    Jotaro went up against four armed thugs, including a former boxer, and each of them ended up in the hospital. Between them, they had fifteen broken bones, as well as severe injuries to some unmentionable areas. Having the introduction to the hero of the story be from a jail cell lets audiences know that this JoJo was a delinquent, a far cry from Jonathan Joestar's gentlemanly nature.

    8 He Uses Iggy As A Projectile At N'Doul

    Jotaro and Iggy had a bit of a rough start. When Iggy joined the Stardust Crusaders, the group was soon attacked by N'Doul and his water Stand, Geb. Geb seemed to know exactly where the Crusaders were located, even though N'Doul was nowhere to be found. When the group surmise that N'Doul is locating them through sound and that he is blind, Jotaro quickly hatches a plan.

    He grabs Iggy and uses Star Platinum to throw Iggy across the desert at N'Doul. The plan worked and N'Doul was distracted by Iggy soaring straight at him, allowing Jotaro to sneak up on the villain and defeat him. Even so, we're pretty sure that throwing Iggy like that counts as some kind of animal abuse.

    7 He Threatens A Child Who He Confuses For Polnareff

    Jotaro is usually very perceptive. He's almost always the one to figure out that he or someone else is being attacked by a Stand user or if someone's in trouble. But for some reason, he didn't realize that Polnareff was in trouble.

    Polnareff had been turned into a child by Alessi's Stand Sethan but was able to find Jotaro to get help. Because of the age regression, Polnareff couldn't remember Jotaro's name so Jotaro thought he was just some kid. We don't know how, though, since the kid looked and dressed exactly like Polnareff. Jotaro should have recognized Polnareff, plain and simple.

    6 He Recklessly Gambles The Souls Of His Family & Friends

    Araki has a knack for taking otherwise mundane activities and turning them into nail-biting suspense scenes, like Jotaro's poker game against D'Arby the Gambler. D'Arby had already used his Stand to take the souls of Polnareff and Joseph which was used as chips for the poker game.

    RELATED: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: 10 Storylines That Were Never Resolved

    The game was risky enough, yet Jotaro took it a step further. Without even looking at his cards, he bets not only Polnareff's and Joseph's souls, but Avdol's soul as well, fazing D'Arby. Jotaro won the game as soon as he bet his mom's soul. He was luck D'arby didn't call his bluff because Jotaro didn't have any good cards.

    5 He Allows His Stand To Stagnate

    Jotaro has the most appearances of any character in the series. He's the main protagonist of Stardust Crusaders, played the role of mentor in Diamond is Unbreakable, makes an appearance in Golden Wind, and plays a supporting role in Stone Ocean. You'd think he'd have used all that time to develop his Stand abilities to become immensely powerful, but you'd be wrong.

    In between parts, Jotaro barely, if ever, uses Star Platinum, which results in the Stand's time stop ability growing weaker. The biggest gap is between Golden Wind and Stone Ocean, where he hasn't used his Stand in ten years. If he had, he might have been able to defeat Pucci easily. Instead, he became a professor of marine biology, teaching students how to get a golf ball out of a whale's blowhole.

    4 He Sends Koichi On A Dangerous Mission With Minimal Details

    During the beginning of Golden Wind, Koichi arrives in Italy at Jotaro's behest. Jotaro had sent Koichi to Italy on a mission to find someone named Haruno Shiobana, who Koichi finds out to be none other than Giorno Giovana. Jotaro then reveals to Koichi that Giorno is DIO's son.

    So to recap, Jotaro sent Koichi to Italy alone to investigate DIO's son. Jotaro couldn't have had any idea if Giorno was going to be as evil and/or powerful as DIO, but instead of going himself he sends Koichi without any backup.

    3 He Saves Joseph, But Doesn't Give Josuke's Grandfather The Same Respect

    During the climactic battle against DIO in Stardust Crusaders, Joseph suffers a fatal blow from DIO before having all his blood drained by the vampire. It's heart-wrenching watching Joseph's ghost say goodbye to Jotaro, but after DIO's defeat, Jotaro has the Speedwagon Foundation transfuse blood into Joseph's body then uses Star Platinum to restart Joseph's heart. Despite a poorly timed prank, Joseph has been brought back to life.

    Fast-forward to Diamond is Unbreakable when Angelo's Stand, Aqua Necklace, kills Josuke's grandfather out of revenge. Josuke uses his Stand to heal his grandfather's injuries but it seems too late, his grandfather is dead. Jotaro explains to Josuke that the dead can't be brought back to life. Guess Jotaro forgot that he brought his own grandfather back from the dead.

    2 He's Needlessly Disrespectful Towards His Mother

    So you've just started Stardust Crusaders. You're pumped to see what this next JoJo is like, then the first thing you hear from him is him yelling at his mother for being annoying and calling her the B-word, even though she came to pick him up in jail. Not cool, Jotaro, she raised you practically on her own.

    Just to be clear, Jotaro does love his mom. The whole reason for Stardust Crusader is to save her life, and Jotaro risked his life many times to see that happen. It's just that yelling at her and calling her names is completely uncalled for.

    1 He Was An Absentee Father For Decades

    Stone Ocean's protagonist is Jolyne Cujoh, Jotaro's only child. But it's revealed that Jotaro had not been in Jolyne's life for years. Due to his busy lifestyle and always going on excursions, Jotaro's relationship with his wife and daughter deteriorated. Jotaro also divorced his wife, which only furthered the gap between him and Jolyne.

    After the divorce, Jolyne essentially disowned him and never talked about him to anyone. She even changed the spelling of her last name 'Kujo' to 'Cujoh' to further distant herself from him. Even though Jotaro and Jolyne would eventually reconcile, the damage was done. Jotaro had broken his family apart instead of being honest and telling his wife and daughter why he had to be away from them.

    Grimm Grimm

    Experimental music project

    Musical artist

    Grimm Grimm is a solo project of London-based musician, recording artist and producer, Koichi Yamanoha.[1][2] He has released three solo albums, and six singles on independent labels since 2014.[3]

    Grimm Grimm has collaborated with other artists, including Lætitia Sadier, Le Volume Courbe, Daisy Dickinson, Bo Ningen, Victor Herrero, Killer-Bong and Klein.[1][4][5]


    Yamanoha is originally from Tokyo, Japan and is the former frontman of psychedelic-punk group, Screaming Tea Party (2006-2010) in London.[6][7] The band has released 2 EPs through Stolen Recordings in the United Kingdom, and disbanded in October 2010. Yamanoha's first solo performance was at the underground music event, Krautorock Karaoke at the George Tavern in 2013.[8][9]

    His debut Grimm Grimm single, "Kazega Fuitara Sayonara / Tell the Truth", was released in late 2014 via Kevin Shields (of My Bloody Valentine) and Charlotte Marionneau (aka Le Volume Courbe)'s Pickpocket Records label[10] in collaboration with Honest Jon's.[5] His debut album, Hazy Eyes Maybe, was released on ATP Recordings[11] in 2015 and tracks from the album were used on the soundtrack for the documentary film Uncle Howard (2016) featuring William S. Burroughs and directed and produced by Aaron Brookner / Jim Jarmusch.[4] His second album, Cliffhanger, was released by Some Other Planet in partnership with Kartel Music Group in June 2018.[4]

    Yamanoha announced the release of his third studio album, Ginormous, on 28 February 2020 on Tip Top Recordings / Magniph. The album was mixed and co-produced by Marta Salogni and featured Paz Maddio and Lætitia Sadier.[12] Grimm Grimm and his ensemble appeared on BBC 6 Music on 19 February 2020 where they were interviewed by Mark Riley and played three songs live in session. Later that evening they were invited by Gideon Coe to play a track on his show to celebrate the release of Ginormous.[1]

    Grimm Grimm has toured with and supported artists such as Cate Le Bon, Simon Finn, Dinosaur Jr, Wire and The Undertones. He has also played multiple music festivals around the world including Le Guess Who? in Utrecht, Netherlands, Green Man Festival in Wales, Sonic Festival in Belgium and All Tomorrow's Parties (festival) in England.[13]

    Musical style[edit]

    Grimm Grimm's music has been described by Folk Radio UK as "Otherworldly forays into baroque folk, futurist lyricism and electroacoustic oddities"[4]The Quietus described his 2020 album, Ginormous, as "Accented with percussion that comes in small clicks and creaks, metronomic rhythms, clacking, cranking sounds like wind-up gears, which sometimes stand in for more conventional drumming, or, as on 'Kyowa Amenohidesu', can create a halting, glitchy tempo."[14]Clash also gave his album "Hazy Eyes Maybe" 8/10 - "On the surface, 'Hazy Eyes Maybe' might seem a simple, acoustic album, but scrape beneath the surface and there lies intricately crafted layers of mournful, morphing, melancholic hooks".[15]

    Now discussing:

    I walked with him every day, unfortunately seeing him off to school, asking for time off from work in order to see him off from school in the same way. Not every day of course. He admired, admired him, his beauty, tenderness and youth. Dreaming of at least talking to him, he raved about him, his touches, they are only in his thoughts, and in.

    Reality he did not even know about me.
