Unpopular opinion: Jot sux
hoo boy you have no idea how much i agree. i can’t really enjoy his character that much because he feels incredibly fake up until pt6 in that he doesn’t really… interact realistically with his environment. he’s an asshole to just about every female character all throughout SDC (hell, and even DiU) but for some reason they either accept it or fawn over him despite his shittiness. generally, his “cool guy” aspects are so badly balanced that he comes across as some asshole guy who can do no wrong in the eyes of anybody in canon, because he’s the protagonist, and protagonists have to be liked or something. to top it all off, his character is often aggressively butchered by the fandom and it’s never questioned, but that’s another rant and i can go on and on about it.
in other news, more and more am i wondering if jotaro being a bad character even is an unpopular opinion. a huge part of the fandom goes hog sodding wild about him but there are a few blogs (1 and 2 that i know of) that criticise his character and seem to have a pretty strong following, and a good bunch of folks i talk to are pretty critical of him.
