How's it going my gumdrops? I must say, I am really quite surprised as well as pleased with the fact, that MORE of you enjoyed yesterday's Song Saturday blog. Yes' song, "Roundabout" was something a little different from their usual, "Owner Of A Lonely Heart."
As I mentioned at least twice, Yes' 1983 hit single, "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" was used as a sample in Season 1: Part 2 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency.
After publishing yesterday's Song Saturday blog and sharing it around social media, I saw a Viz Media video by the voice actor, Patrick Seitz. Patrick Seitz is best known for voicing Luke Valentine from the Hellsing franchise, Bleach's Isshin Kurosaki and Kenpachi Zaraki, numerous characters from the Naruto franchise, Blue Exorcist's Igor Neuhaus, and most importantly Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

These are only naming a few characters, that Seitz has voiced throughout the last 10 years or so. If you would like to learn about other characters he has voiced, click on the following link.
As I was saying, a Viz Media promo appeared in my facebook news feed, which featured Patrick Seitz. He was promoting JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders for Adult Swim's Toonami block.

Watching this promo for Stardust Crusaders made me giggle. It was clever. I love the way Patrick Seitz held that rose in his mouth, while delivering a witty promo. Seitz has voiced villains in the past, but voicing the villain, Dio Brando makes me laugh.
The villain Dio Brando is named after the late Metal frontman, Ronnie James Dio.
During this promo, Seitz referenced to Dio Brando's Stand, The World. This particular season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure focuses on Stands. Stardust Crusaders begins with Joseph Joestar's grandson, Jotaro Kujo purposely staying behind bars in jail because he claims to be possessed by a supposed evil spirit.
Eventually, Joseph and his fortune telling friend, Mohammed Avdol strategize how to coax Jotaro into leaving his jail cell.
After Joseph, Mohammed, Jotaro, and his mother, Holly leave the jail, they have a meeting at a coffee & wine shop about their ancestry. This includes revealing more shocking news about Dio Brando's connection to The Joestar Clan.

So, what it is a Stand?
A Stand is a unique, supernatural personification of life energy, which is attached to the body. It can also represent the manifestations of a human or a creature's innate "fighting spirit." To an extent, Stands embody the psyche.
As we have already been shown, Joseph Joestar is a Stand User. He snaps screenshots and smashes his cameras as evidence to support his claims about having a Stand.
Who and what are Stand Users?
Stand Users are humans and creatures with Stands, which can be used for various purposes.
Obtaining a Stand is currently unspecified. However, it has been hinted that having a Stand can be linked to bloodlines, rigorious spiritual and/"Ripple Training" and/ a very strong will power, desire, and passion.
Since this season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure centers around Stands, here is a list of Stand Users with their Stands.
