Final, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Rocky Ocean done, but I wouldn’t object if you didn’t know it because of Netflix’s binge-watching model and handle ads of anime broke all the hype and discussed it online. And now I’m worried about the fate of its sequel, Run the steel ball.
Last year, Netflix announced it would have exclusive streaming rights for rocky ocean, the sixth story in the series. The flip side of the announcement is that the streamer will be releasing the English version at the same time as the Japanese version. Usually, the English dub comes out a few weeks after the Japanese original airs. We have now reached the end of the rainbow of rocky oceanit’s clear that Netflix’s batch release of anime has devalued the journey.
Netflix release rocky ocean according to its intoxicating model the equivalent of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at midnight-released the entire phase three film on Disney+ with only a handful of social media posts promoting it. While it was nice to have all of its episodes available at once, it stifled any excitement for its “monster of the week” recipe. The fights used to be something I could easily recall to my friends by naming the villains and their strength. But ocean rock The binge-watching release has turned once memorable villains and its standing power into a mixture of forgettable ones.
This also robs the protagonist of the dramatic weight Jolyne’s dangerous battles both inside and outside Blue Dolphin Road Prison because the streamer will automatically playhim the next episode before I could fully digest and appreciate the wacky antics and clever strategies the heroes had Enforcement to win narrowly. It’s a pity that the previous online discussion arcs have created scheduled weekly release feels non-existent with rocky ocean.
rocky oceanHis anime holds a special place in my heart because it is the only one with a female protagonist and a mostly female cast of “Jo-bros”. rocky ocean also arguably the most emotionally resonant and carries a lot of weight to the direction of the rest of the series.
Other anime have thrived this year as their weekly episodes generate discussions and theories among fans amid the hype for next week’s episode,”Bleach Monday” and “chainsaw man Tuesday” are prime examples. “Friday JoJo,” JJBA fan-designated private splurge dates have become commonplace with the previous season, golden windwas when fans will be joining in on their own online fun with the show, but that’s also a thing of the past under Netflix’s release model.
Whether you are a new head or old JJBA fans, I encourage you to take the time to watch rocky ocean. And should Netflix have a streaming monopoly? Run the steel ballI pray it releases episodes of it weekly so fans can enjoy its adventures with a steady trot instead of a frantic sprint to the finish line.
