* CommonKnowledge: There is a surprisingly high number of casual fans, and critics, that say that Jonathan was the father of Joseph. This isn't true as Part 2 clearly explains that Joseph is Jonathan's grandson. Even if you discount the TangledFamilyTree that is the Joestar lineage its still ridiculous that so many people believe this when one of the main arcs of Part 2 [[spoiler:was the reveal of who Joseph's mother is.]]

** Due to the anime using real world songs for the endings, this pops up a lot on YouTube. It is a great cross-pollination of JoJo fans who haven't heard of bands with fans of certain bands more than happy to have new fans. The process usually goes- A new ED is released. Fans of [=JoJo=] bombard the song on YouTube. Fans of the song ask, "What the hell is JoJo?". Anime fans spew memes and explain what JoJo is. Band fans get into [=JoJo=], while telling anime fans "This song is great but listen to some other songs by this artist." Anime fans listen to other songs and gain more respect for the bands. If anime fans don't care for the song or the band, it's okay! The sheer influx of anime fans checking out the original song send the view count to incredible levels.

** Part 5, sort of. Thanks to a proper translation, many people have begun appreciating the Part and see its initial reception as undeserved.
** ''Every time'' a new Opening for the anime comes out. No really, people will hate the opening shown, then when they get the next one, they go and hate that one for different reasons.

* VindicatedByHistory: ''[=JoJo's=] Bizarre Adventure'' has always been popular in Japan, but it took a while for it to catch on in the West. While it was never hated in Western countries, it was always pushed aside by other Magazine/ShonenJump series and remained a CultClassic at best, thanks to [[NoExportForYou a lack of localization]] (primarily due to the [[ShoutOut/JoJosBizarreAdventure character names]] creating [[ScrewedByTheLawyers a gigantic mess of legal issues]]), although MemeticMutation caused a bump in popularity in the early 2000's. Then it gained a proper anime (as opposed to 13 short [=OVAs=]) in 2012, and because it came nearly 25 years after the manga started, it has no {{filler}} and it doesn't have to worry about [[OvertookTheManga taking a different path in the story]]. Because of this and [[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle the tie-in game]], [=JoJo=] became exponentially more popular in TheNewTens, an era where fellow Shonen series started going the DeaderThanDisco route.

** You would be surprised at how many people attempt to rationalize and justify Yoshikage Kira's actions around the fanbase despite being a SerialKiller.

** The infamous torture scene in Part 5. Was it a tasteless moment that made it impossible to sympathize with the main characters? Or was it just a natural part of them being gangsters?



** The added scene in the beginning of Part 4's first episode [[spoiler: {{Foreshadowing}} Yoshikage Kira's involvement in the story, as well as being a serious case of SurpriseCreepy]] has split the fanbase. Some love how it establishes the [[spoiler: main villain]] of the Part in a way that the manga didn't, while others feel that it spoils a really great plot twist and shouldn't have been included.
** The way Warner Bros. handled the DVD release for the 2012 anime. While the dub itself received mixed opinions many other aspects of the release and marketing were polarizing among fans to say the least. Seeing as how the franchise has become increasingly popular in the United States especially in 2015 a lot of fans were expecting more out of Warner Bros.' offering. Unfortunately the release was widely criticized for being DVD only when most anime these days are released on both Blu-ray and DVD or Blu-ray/DVD combo packs, using the dub's closed captions as the subtitle track, having no special features, and bland artwork and menus[[note]]It should be noted however that the menus used for the DVD release are present on all Warner Bros. [=DVDs=] including their films and television shows[[/note]]. In addition many fans felt as if the franchise should have been aired on Creator/{{Toonami}} right off the bat given the increasing awareness and how a year before the dub was released the ''Stardust Crusaders'' test dub on Website/{{Crunchyroll}} indicated plans for dubbing the series. Despite the problems with the release some people were able to overlook these issues and were simply happy to see it on United States home video or having a dub in the first place. This has been alleviated however as Creator/VizMedia will now release Parts 1 & 2 and future parts on Blu-ray and the 2012 anime will be airing on Toonami in October 2016.

** You would be surprised at how many people attempt to rationalize and justify Yoshikage Kira's actions around the fanbase. Many attempt to say that he only killed "bad" girls (his two on-screen girl victims being a gold-digger and a rebellious girl)... conveniently ignoring his many off-screen victims and Reimi Sugimoto/her dog Arnold. There are also people that blame Shigeki and the Morioh Gang for ruining his "quiet life", when that "quiet life" involved going unpunished for his many crimes and keep killing young girls, or those that say that his urges to kill are uncontrollable when its shown that he does it more because he [[ForTheEvulz likes it]] then being out of his control. He does have some redeeming features but some people forget how bad he is
