While in Japan, I saw in a library a full colour print of "Rohan at the Louvre" and... DAMN, that looks amazing. The art was nothing short of beautiful. It's full colour and full Araki detail. I'm thinking of actually buying the volume in English, since that version was quite unintelligible for me (as a side note on this: I finally learned to read Hiragana! Hopefully I can use this as a basis to start learning a bit more of Japanese all around. Also learned a few new kanji).

Once you know hiragana the next task is to learn katakana and then try really hard to not get them mixed up. When they are completely different, it's mostly fine, and when they are similar (like モ and も or か and カ) it's easy enough, but then there are cases where サ is sa in katakana but せ is se in hiragana and they really look like they should be the same sound, but instead they're painfully close. I've been reading kana for... 7-8 or so years now and these ones still make me think twice sometimes when I'm out of practice. A weird one is that katakana ra (ラ) and hiragana u (う) look at least as similar as the two ka symbols above (katakana being just a more angular version of the hiragana) but these are at least completely unrelated in sound, so I don't think I ever mixed them up.

All that said, if you're still new to hiragana you might still be too busy getting trolled by the similarities between e.g. る and ろ or わ, れ and ね, so maybe it's too soon for katakana to increase the headfuck. For bonus points, learn archaic/obsolete kana so you can recognise glorious albeit useless symbols like ゑ.

My rule of thumb for those hiragana mindfucks is: if it's got a curly thingy, it's the N version. Wa-Ra are pretty enraging but I got them down, as long as the font isn't some fancy ass handwritten thingy. Then I try to read the furigana in the first volume of Dragonball and oh boy...

BTW, another thing, Jojo related: always in Japan, I saw what I think was a Jojo light novel. The funny detail that got me was how all chapter titles were those of classic Neapolitan songs  :face-rofl. Anyone knows anything about it?

My guess is it's Purple Haze Feedback, it's based off of Part 5.

Rohan at the Louvre is based on the Part 7-8 art style. It does look great.

Hmm, the art style's changed again. Looks more like Jojo's more modern style.

And looking forward to this. Rohan was my favourite Part 4 character.

It also made me realise how much sheer craziness Part 3 contains by concentrating it in a mere 3 minutes :face-rofl.

Going by the comments from the guy who made it, that was intentional lol
