Forgot they announced this. Been holding onto a 10% Rightstuf coupon waiting for the next wave of Funi announcements to get the most out of it.

So, Viz's JoJo releases are the same as KAZE's in France in terms of artwork, and the key animation booklets are identical except for the language. If they continue the trend, Stardust Crusaders will (obviously) have 24 Episodes, but Diamond is Unbreakable is the interesting part.

It's 39 Episodes, so 3 volumes with 13 Episodes each? Nope, KAZE has 2 sets, the first with 20 episodes, the second with 19. That works out rather well, assuming they continue to use 4 discs per set. 5 Episodes with 2 language tracks offers the ability to possibly make a 1:1 clone, but Viz being Viz, it won't happen. Still, the episode count could allow for a better looking release.

Great site here that goes through the BD changes for many of the JoJo eps from Parts 1, 2, and 4.

Viz Dubs a lot faster than they can release it. They’re not doing tons of short Anime series, so they focus their Dubbing on the few long running series that they do have. But at like 24 episodes a Set it is taking a lot longer. Like we got Stardust Crusaders Set 1 just when Toonami was wrapping up the Egypt Arc.

I imported the JP BDs of the Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency, but after they dropped the English subs from Stardust Crusaders, it felt like a slap in the face and I instantly sold them off once Viz picked up the license. If they don't want my money directly, that's fine with me. I know it was lucky that they included them to begin with, but I still can't help but be bitter about the situation.

I think from a packaging and extras perspective they're doing a good job- the Key Animation booklets are awesome- but the PQ isn't optimal. It looks pretty good, like a 7 or 7.5/10, but there's the age old brightness issue.

I'm curious how the bitrates are for Stardust Crusaders, as with just 6 episodes on each disc- producing an even split in both sets- it could exceed 30 mbps on average. But, as I don't own them yet, I guess I'll hold on 'till the Rightstuf Holiday sale to pick up Part 1 of Stardust.

I'm just starting to watch volume 2 in English, and I'm kinda sad that Roundabout isn't playing at the outro anymore. But then I see an audio setting for English, English with American music and subs, and Japanese on the main menu.

Are there any American rock songs that should be playing, because I'm not hearing any at episode 3 =/

If by volume 2 you mean Stardust Crusaders "Walk like an Egyptian" should be the next ED song that starts on episode 3. "Roundabout" plays through both Johnathan and Joseph's arcs and it changes for Jotaro's.

Hey just want to point out that the Japanese part 1(https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/JoJos...lu-ray/218690/) set does not have English subtitles, cant confirm part 2(https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/JoJos...lu-ray/218928/) but ill assume it also doesn't have it.

I can’t change that- it took the info from the individual releases to say it has subs. Unless I make a new entry and replace that, it will forever (unfortunately) say that.

Just buy the American release. They’re the closest we’re gonna get without dropping a cool mint on these sets with most of us not having region-free players and not understanding Japanese.

Oh yeah for sure, I was just saying. I own both the jp singles and the jp set. I had gotten the set first thinking it had subs but alas it did not. Honeslty though part 1 & 2s singles aren't that expensive. Manage to get all of them for under $100 and those do come with eng subs.
