Hooo boy. This is a hard one to write about.
There’s certain anime that you point to (if you’re an anime fan) that you use to settle arguments about the quality of the medium. Conversely, there are examples of anime that completely and utterly destroy arguments about anime being a serious art medium.
And then there are the ones that fall right in the middle. These are anime that have interesting and distinct elements with great character moments but also simultaneously have some outrageous shit in them.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is such an anime.
