    Characters

    [​IMG]
    Joseph Joestar
    Voiced by: Benjamin Diskin
    Joseph is a trickster, less honorable than his grandfather Jonathan, and constantly scheming ways to humiliate his opponents. But it’s this scheming nature where his intelligence shines through, as he is usually able to predict his opponent’s moves and nature just by observing them. He is now the last Hamon user standing against Kars, but with his enemy now obtaining literal godhood, does Joseph even stand a chance?

    [​IMG]
    Kars
    Namesake: The Cars (band)
    Voiced by: Will Barrett
    The Ultimate Lifeform. Having obtained the Red Stone of Aja, Kars achieved his goal of becoming a being above all other life on Earth, becoming not just a superbeing, but a god. He is invincible, no longer affected by the sun, and seemingly unstoppable. Now he intends to make humanity bow beneath him or die, beginning with JoJo.

    [​IMG]
    Elizabeth Joestar (Alias: “Lisa Lisa”)
    Namesake: Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam (band)
    Voiced by: Wendee Lee
    Elizabeth Joestar was rescued as an infant by Jonathan Joestar aboard the ship which sent him and Dio to their watery grave. She was raised by Straizo and trained from a young age in the ways of Hamon. As a young woman, she fell in love with Jonathan and Erina’s son, Royal Airforce pilot George Joestar II, and the two had a child named Joseph. However, George was killed by a superior officer, who was in fact a Dio-created zombie who had survived through the decades. When Elizabeth learned of this, she assassinated the officer, but was labeled as a traitor and murderer, to be hunted throughout England all her days. Thanks to the Speedwagon Foundation, her name was changed to Lisa Lisa and she took up residence in Italy, becoming a master teacher of Hamon like her adopted father. While initially cold and distant towards Joseph, due to her inner turmoil of abandoning him as an infant, she cares deeply for him. Following Caesar’s death, she and Joseph were the only ones left to oppose Kars in his quest, but she was quickly incapacitated during her one-on-one fight with him.

    [​IMG]
    Rudol von Stroheim
    Namesake: Erich von Stroheim (actor)
    Voiced by: Dan Woren
    Thanks to the finest technology German science has to offer, Major von Stroheim was revived as a fully-functioning cyborg soldier. With impressive weaponry and his German pride, Stroheim is dedicated towards stopping the threat of the Pillar Men once and for all.

    [​IMG]
    Robert E.O. Speedwagon
    Namesake: REO Speedwagon (band)
    Voiced by: Keith Silverstein
    Following Jonathan’s death, Speedwagon set out west for America and struck it rich in the oil industry. With his newfound wealth, he built the Speedwagon Foundation, an organization which secretly investigates the paranormal and is dedicated towards assisting the Joestar family in whatever way possible.

    [​IMG]
    Smokey Brown
    Namesake: Smokey Robinson (musician)
    Voiced by: Robbie Daymond
    Smokey is a homeless NYC street kid who has recently become friends with Joseph. Being black during the 1930’s, he faces persecution everywhere he goes, but has been taken in by Joseph and Erina who see him as an equal.

    [​IMG]
    Erina Joestar
    Voiced by: Michelle Ruff
    Joseph’s grandmother and widow of Jonathan. On the outside, she is a strict no-nonsense woman, but underneath shows the same kindness towards the less fortunate that her husband displayed.

    [​IMG]
    Suzi Q
    Namesake: Susie Q (song) and Suzi Quatro (singer)
    Voiced by: Stephanie Sheh
    Suzi Q is Lisa Lisa’s assistant who possesses no Hamon abilities, acting more as a maid and errand girl. She has a crush on JoJo, and is holding him to a promise that they’ll see each other again.

    [​IMG]
    Meshina
    Namesake: Jim Messina (musician)
    Voiced by: Michael McConnohie
    Lisa Lisa’s servant who is well versed in Hamon. Alongside his departed friend Loggs, Meshina acted as an instructor for Joseph and Caesar during their training in the weeks leading up to the fights against the Pillar Men. He attempted to assist Caesar against Wamuu, but was quickly subdued; However, he survived somehow, and was left to recuperate from his injuries as the battles against Wamuu and Kars continued without him.

    Episode 26
    "The Ascendant One"
    Chapters adapted: 111-113​

    Last time
    Some stuff happened that was so crazy I don’t want to spoil it. Tune in to the episode before this to see what happens!

    This time
    The final battle to decide the fate of the world concludes! Will Kars stand as the god of the world, or can Joseph find a way to topple him?

    JOJO'S JUKEBOX

    The final Jukebox for this season is “Hello Again” by The Cars. I have a feeling this was the song Araki was listening to when he was planning out the final battle.



    Notes:
    • This is the last episode of Part 2: Battle Tendency, as well as the end of the first season overall.
    • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is leaving Toonami after tonight, with Attack on Titan Season 2 starting next week. However, there’s been heavy hints that Part 3, Stardust Crusaders, will premiere once Attack on Titan ends.
    • The manga chapters which this episode covers can be found in Battle Tendency volume 4, presently available in hardcover from Viz Media.
    • The first season of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, covering the first 26 episodes, is available on DVD from Warner Home Video. Viz Media will be releasing the first season on Blu-Ray and DVD this summer.
    • Please, no spoilers about upcoming events and future arcs.

    Previously on JJBA: Planes, animals, and volcanoes. Doesn't get bizarrer than this.

    And, at last, the second "Adventure" comes to a close

    Besides, I already linked the part everyone's going to remember (only with a better dub) just before this post. ;)

    So...that's it then? No "I'll be back"? No "thumbs up" as his arm slowly sinks down?

    He's turned into Wamuu.

    So now he's become Crispy Kars.

    You can blame Kars for the reason why there's no Pillar Women.

    Well, not necessarily the end. Well, the end of this arc, but the odds are good that Toonami will air part three, maybe after AoT2 ends.

    I don't suppose they could run an old Tenchi promo?
