@jplebreton Well!!!? What did you think? I was incredibly hyped to see Joseph 2, and I am hoping against hope that he is in part 9. And I loved that the last chapter was all about drawing the line directly from SBR to Jojolion, and all about family and lineage in general which is obviously The Most Jojo Theme

@darius I loved it! I made the mistake of seeing what randos on twitter were saying about it and some of them were mad about "unresolved threads" and IMO everything important got a decent conclusion. As soon as Joseph introduced himself as "Fumi" in chapter 109 I knew he who he was. I can't tell whether part 9 is going to be him doing stuff back in the 40s/50s, or whether the "lands" (islands where Locacaca was found) Josuke spoke of are the titular Jojo Lands of part 9.

@darius There's sort of a setup for a Stardust Crusaders-like premise with Holly still sick, an old (87!) Joseph tracking down Josuke and going off on a journey story (odd-numbered part, after all) to find one more Locacaca to heal her. But having a very old Joseph be The New Jojo doesn't quite make sense, and it seems foolish to assume that part 9 won't introduce some big new concepts that take center stage.

@jplebreton right, I knew who he was in 109 but seeing hermit purple and the clackers and him running away from something.... wow. Surprisingly the discussion on Reddit is a lot better, most people are very happy to get the resolution to "Who am I?" and several pointed out that the meta-point here is that being comfortable with who you are is more important than solving mysteries. I'm aware of the Stardust theory but it seems too good to be true!!!

@darius "stand from the original universe shows up in the SBR universe out of the blue" always gives me goosebumps - the only ones i can think of are The World, Killer Queen, and now Hermit Purple (unnamed, but obviously that).

@darius the original vs SBR universes not having any kind of wacky MCU ass crossovers (in canon, at any rate) but rather "these characters are different but their will manifests in the exact same Stand" is one of the cooler more thoughtful ways of doing crossover that i can think of.

jojolion ending spoilers 

@jplebreton and we already have the Dio/Jotaro precedent of two characters with similar will and the "same" stand

@darius As of the end of part 8 there's not much interesting prequel fodder re: the Locacaca, even though they do seem to have a stone mask-like importance - anything Joseph could do as a young man would simply result in the fruit winding up in Morioh. This is why I like the idea of young Joseph in Italy (we haven't had anything connected to part 5 yet in the SBverse) doing stuff.

@jplebreton also have you heard about the Hol Horse / Part 4 Josuke spinoff by the Purple Haze Feedback author? incredible

jojolion ending spoilers 

@darius yeah, that should be great! what i find interesting about that is that in interviews Araki has always seemed to be totally content to leave Josuke's story where it lay at the end of part 4 - he's in a few panels of the Rohan spinoffs, at the cafe still in his school uniform even though it's 2006 or whatever. but clearly people want to see more of him. my dream for that crossover is that Boingo's stand sets the story in motion.

@jplebreton oh also: Hermit Purple has an anthropomorphic form now!! love it!!

@jplebreton @darius Well, we did get Gyro's connection to Italy in SBR which half-counts as something connected to Part 5.

I am low-key expecting Part 9 to be set in Italy, though. I think Araki loves Italy too much not to set another (and possibly final) part there.

Personally I feel like the Part 9 Jojo won't be Joseph or any character we've seen so far. While contradicting everything that's been done so far is kind of JoJo's thing, it would seem like a pretty radical departure.

But it's all just speculation. I'm mostly just incredibly happy that we're really getting the Trilogy of Trilogies (despite Araki getting up there in years) and super excited to see what Part 9 is gonna be.

@jplebreton @darius It vaguely bothers me that Flashback Man was apparently just written out and especially that the flashforward wasn't... anything? But I still liked the last chapter a lot.

It was really cathartic, and in the end it's fitting for JoJolion to end after Tooru and the family curse were defeated. Both represent a denial of fate and were the main things standing between Josuke and actually being able to live a new life.

@operand @jplebreton honestly Flashback Man reminds me of Guy Who Gave Part 4 Josuke His Hair -- I was assuming he was like... a time travel Josuke but it turns out he was just.... some guy? I chalk this up to another Pt 4/8 parallelism :)

jojolion ending spoilers 

@darius @jplebreton Well, Hair Guy had a clear function in the story. He didn't need to come back, he could just be a kind stranger.

Flashback Man just... appeared. But, it's not that big of a deal :p
