We have a MLP thread, we can have a JoJo thread, for it is awesome. I could say "x times as awesome" or "exponentially awesome" but 0 multiplied by anything is 0. Not to mention that given the nature of this forum, it's obvious why JoJo would have more importance than most other series.

Spoilers are to be expected, so I've made use of transparent text ala TVtropes.

So, for those who don't know, Part 8, Jojolion is out, and it's set in the universe after the events of Stairway to Heaven's effects in Morioh around the exact same time as Part IV in the old universe, so this is the new Part IV. So far I think only the first 3 chapters have been translated so not much is known other than the main characters are some girl named Yasuho Hirose, her stalker Joshu Higashikata, and the main protagonist (as indicated by the star-shaped mark) has amnesia and can't remember his name, so Yasuho gives him the name Josuke. It is later revealed, once they go back to his apartment, that his real name is Yoshikage Kira and that he was supposedly into some really perverted shit.

So far it's interesting, but I wish we had more scans.

I read that differently.
It seems to happen much later, like in teh current time as an iphone is seen and the march earthquake is mentionedabout Yoshikage Kira , nigger afroamerican has not been confirmed as such, since he was recognized by clothing and not by face, it's like 50/50 on him being kira, I guess.

I stopped reading Jojo after suffering through half of part 4.  Should I start reading from p5 on again?  I am worried it will be meaningless since its all retconned anyway.
No, YOU move.

while there are characters that pop out here and there, each jojo part should be considered its own "thing".

Being "retconned" doesnt mean it never happened, just that there are no returning characters from that point on( at least as themselves) .

I still want:

A shame that Part 4 is screwing around and stuff, since I kinda liked that stand that was basically diet cream.
Ala punching out voids out of nowhere and shit.

You forgot the most important detail in Jojolion.
FOUR BALLS.
Anyways RAW for chapter 4 is out so expect a scanlation in a week or so.

Part 4 is the weakest Jojo but it's not that bad. I mean, it's still better than your average Shounen. And it has Rohan. Rohan is bad ass.

Part 4 is a roller coaster of quality, some parts of it are really bad, others are realy stupid and some are really good, i am still glad that i did not skip it and skipping just the bad/stupid stuff is very difficult to do anyway.

I truly believe that people is too harsh with part 4, I can't blame then though. Part 4 feels even weaker because the scanlation quality is god-awful.

Because they're from Chinese scans, so to give you an idea, it's "R2, do you is fucking" awful.

Part 5 was my favorite. Loved Bucciaratti's arc so much and the titular protagonist being a descendant of Dio's was a welcome change in terms of character design. The exaggerated Italian fashion & locales were quite nice as well,  I thought it was a really enjoyable read.

Admittedly, I skipped part 4 after a couple chapters, and I haven't read Stone Ocean or Steel Ball Run. Are they worth checking out or should I just focus on Part 8 now?

stone ocean is good, the ending is weird, but you know that already, since its when the "retcon" happens.
Jolyne might be one of the most interesting jojo characters.

Steel Ball run is pretty good not the best it whole plot was just racing to win a million dollars and later on the main characters Johhny and Gyro fight the president who wants sumthin called the corpse parts which gives people stand powers and makes them even stornger
