Only JoJo is wild and physically attractive, but these are a good substitute.
There have been 152 episodes of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure thus far. Even while it’s not as long as some of the more popular films out there, it’s still a lengthy and at times overwhelming experience to see. If you’ve finished all of it, congratulations, and you’re searching for some new shows to watch, here are five to get you started. Some of these suggestions may come as a surprise, but they’re worth a shot. You never know what you’re going to like unless you try it.
A new version has been created by Adriano Valente 13th of May, 2020: Fans of the JoJo franchise are eagerly awaiting the announcement of Stone Ocean, which finished about a year ago. Dedicated fans will have to find anything else to watch till then if they want to wait that long. A few shows that didn’t make the cut the first time around have been added to this updated list.
10 One-Punch Man
Is there anything more strange and intense than a person who is so OP that they annihilate their opponents with a single strike? Despite the show’s title, Saitama is able to perform this feat. Contrary to popular belief, the experience is far from dreary. Even Saitama’s battles are lively and engaging, because to the great diversity of characters in this anime’s ensemble. Even if, as in Jojo’s, the scenarios seem to be waiting for the main protagonist and then being handled very swiftly, you’ll probably enjoy this program anyway….
9 Cells at Work!
Cells at Work!, another David Productions production, is an educational anime that takes a look inside the human body. Initially, you may think this was a dull topic, but this presentation presents it in a way that makes you both laugh and learn simultaneously. Every episode has a plethora of facts and trivia strewn throughout, much like the Stardust Crusades did with their interstitial tidbits of information. With monochromatic action men, attractive maids with enormous blades and characters that resemble bouncers—these are just some of the best battle sequences. There are also voices of Jotaro and Santana, which brings a little touch of nostalgia to the mix.
8 My Hero Academia
Even though My Hero Academia is action-packed, it has another feature with Jojo’s: the characters’ special talents. My Here Academia’s heroes and villains have Quirks like the Stands that Jojo’s users have, and adaptation is a big part of this as well. To see everyone’s various powers in action, as well as their constant need to assess their opponents and make adjustments as necessary, is a treat. MirioTogata’s ability to phase through anything and Josuke’s versatility with Crazy Diamond to even produce homing projectiles are two examples of how creatively they both use their skills.
7 Food Wars!
One of the most exciting food shows on television, it’s basically just Jojo’s with food. A culinary high school is the setting for this drama, in which students compete in severe cooking fights known as Shokugeki, similar to those on Iron Chef but with far higher stakes. Food Wars! characters, like the Jojos, have a tendency for winning matches by pulling off miraculous victories that seem to appear out of nowhere. One episode even included a Shokugeki that looked like it had been taken directly out of Jojo’s art style and intensity! This is a great choice if you enjoy food anime but are looking for something a little more intense.
This is yet another action-packed food animation from David Productions, albeit with a quite interesting subject. When it comes to Bentos, I don’t think anyone expects something like this, therefore I’m sure you’ll be surprised by this. Students and office professionals spend the day as Ben-characters, To’s but at night they transform into ferocious fighters. A commonality among many David Production productions, this one features a premise that will leave viewers puzzled, yet it executes the concept brilliantly. Even while Ben-To doesn’t go as far as Jojo does when it comes to twisting mundane events into something more dramatic, he has a similar ability to do so.
5 Gurren Lagann
An over-the-top mecha anime called Gurren Lagann is based on the theme of tenacity and will power. Because they live in an underground realm, our heroes must fight for the well-being of the human race as a whole. Similarities between Int and Jojo include that the protagonists battle for the greater good, whether it be the citizens of a town or all the young people. In addition, Guren Lagann has some of the most breathtaking fight scenes you’ll ever see. Those looking for something new but with a nod to Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure could enjoy this.
4 Kaguya-Sama: Love is War
Even though this isn’t an action-packed anime, it nonetheless packs a punch. Both the president and vice president of their student council hesitate to tell the other their genuine feelings, which is at the center of the entire show’s plot. Instead of physical combat, Kaguya-Sama emphasizes strategy and foresight — anticipating what the other person will do and responding to that prediction in a way that puts them in the driver’s seat. Many of Jojo’s settings, such as that of Joseph in Battle Tendency, are evocative of this situation, and while it may not be as action-packed in a physical sense, the mental conflicts are just as enjoyable.
3 Nyaruko: Crawling with Love
After viewing an intense anime like Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, it’s often beneficial to take a break and watch something lighter and more frivolous. This is why shows like Nyaruko-san exist. It’s an odd and fast-paced comedy based on Lovecraft’s monsters, and it leaves you scratching your brain and wondering what’s going on. Despite this, it’s a delightful program with plenty of references to other series (including Jojo’s), which only serves to heighten the humor.
2 Yu Yu Hakusho
Even though it’s an oldie, this one’s a keeper. Like Jotaro and Josuke, the protagonist of this anime Yusuke Urameshi is a regular delinquent who becomes a supernatural investigator of some kind. As with Jojo’s squad, he has funny, brainy, and rival characters filling out the rest of the roles. The arcs’ journey themes are also very similar. The show’s action scenes, which incorporate both physical combat and supernatural skills, are also rather good. Yu Yu Hakusho can be the right choice for you if you’re looking for something nostalgic but also powerful.
1 Fate/ Series
As part of an event known as the Holy Grail War, mages from around the world summon Heroic Spirits and fight to the death for a prize that is said to fulfill every request a wish. At the end of the fight, each of them is granted a wish as a result of their Master-Servant relationship, which is similar to Jojo’s Stand-User dynamic. The series is a bit darker and more serious than Jojo’s, but it still has enough magical aspects and plot to keep you engaged. With three distinct series, Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Unlimited Blade Works, and Fate/Wheel, Heaven’s each following a different main character but branching out depending on the main character’s love interest, you have plenty of options with this one.
