Title: Stand Proud | Artist: Jin Hashimoto | Show: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders
Again deciding to go with a pun-based theme for myself, since this month and next month both start with “Ju”, I’m thinking of doing one JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure OP/ED in each of the JuJu months. Though it’s not like there’s that many options left at this, seeing how this awesome shonen battle series is quite popular amongst the people of Ani-Tay. On top of that, due to JoJo’s being a shonen battle series I’m going to run with another theme of shonen battle OP/EDs as my other choices for these two months.
So it goes without saying, but “Stand Proud”, the first opening to the Stardust Crusaders arc is completely different from the openings of the Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency arcs, being more hyper, aggressive, and shonen-y. And that makes perfect sense when you consider that Startdust Crusaders was when the series started to shift into a more typical shonen battle-like series and is quite the departure from the previous arcs.
And like usual, here’s the full version as well.
But, I’m not done there! I have two...interesting crossover videos. First up “Stand Proud” put to the visuals of Sailor Moon Crystal’s OP, and then “Moon Pride” put to the visuals of Stardust Crusaders’ first OP. It is quite....something to say the least.
