Chapter 6 and 7: A Letter From The Past and A Vow To The Father
Chapter 2: A New Friend
So! Where were we?
Ah yes, seven year later: 1888! Jack the Ripper is stalking the foggy streets of London! And JoJo and Dio are… friends?
So, Dio starts making JoJo’s life miserable. And not in a subtle, sneaky way either. He straight up just starts beating him after Old Man Joestar leaves the room. And then insults his dog some more. However, I’m confident the dog is definitely going to survive the coming chapters. Probably even be a mascot for the series!
Anyway, then we see that Dio is better than Jonathan at everything. He’s more refined, smarter, stronger, you name it. And he’s doing that old trick of only appearing eeeeeeevil when Old Man Joestar is out of the room so Jonathan just looks petty and incompetent. This could be a variation on the old theme of “low-born” people actually being as good as or better than “high-born” people if Dio wasn’t a complete asshole. Remember, kids: if someone’s parents were criminals, they’re probably also rotten to the core.
