Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (4):

With its gloomy intro and tragedy-centered storylines, this series has a much darker tone than its predecessor. But, Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan preserves Jojo's overdramatic characters and art style. Each episode begins with Rohan having a lighthearted conversation with someone that eventually turns into a tragic story about one of his adventures. Despite the pattern of the series, the tragedy aspect still comes as a surprise, although some of the twists are so extreme that they are borderline comedic. Older teens may find this collection of silly horror stories entertaining, however, some of the imagery may involve too much blood and frequent death for younger viewers.
