Why It Works: A Eulogy for the Dogs of JoJo, Part One

JoJo has been terribly and consistently unkind to its dogs, and I for one have had enough of it. Part of being a critic is accepting that sometimes you have a moral responsibility to write a two part article in memory of fictional animals. I didn’t choose this duty, but I will not shirk my responsibilities. Dear dogs of JoJo, please accept this offering in memory of your sacrifice.

  1. No no no no no no NO. Tell me you did not just write a piece chronicling the horrible dog-gorings of Jojo! You didn’t even really thematically JUSTIFY any of it, other than “well that’s Araki’s way of showing you when a bad guy is REALLY bad”. But we already knew that like 6 dogs ago!

    Unless this is part of your continued plan to draw any and all attention possible to Part 4? If so, I am am totally behind you on this.

    I look forward to your week 2 report, where part 4 largely subverts the (largely Araki-created anyway) dog murderer trope. Hopefully FOREVER.

    • The only subversion was in Tonio’s restaurant. But do I have to remind you of Angelo biting off that dog’s face, or the ghost dog killed by Kira…?

  2. That was great. As much as I love the serious critical thought that you put into most of your work, the way you write when you’re focusing on comedy is just fantastic.
