Get Him! This Engineering Student Thinks JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Is Just “okay”

Seize this man immediately! Last Friday, Mario Harper (E ‘22) confided to his friends that he thought the television anime series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure was just “okay."

“Yeah, I guess it’s okay,” Harper opined, making the worst mistake of his life. “What else do you want me to say?”

Apparently, he just doesn’t think the animation is very smooth, and while he likes some of the character designs, he’s gone on record saying the plot is “sub-par.” Them’s fighting words, buddy.

Harper’s indifference to Hirohiko Araki’s beloved and critically acclaimed series is shameful. Not only does he neglect to read the latest manga releases within the hour they’re released, but his laptop background isn’t an image of Giorno Giovanna pulling back half of his shirt. How can he even call himself an engineering student?

But the list of atrocities doesn’t end there: last Halloween, instead of dressing up like a jacked-up teenager from Morioh-cho like the rest of us, he had the gall to dress up as Captain America instead. He doesn’t loudly sing any of the opening themes in crowded areas, nor does he have a single Stand OC. And don’t try shouting any references at him in public — he’ll just pretend not to get them. He might as well be filling out his Wharton transfer application already.

Sources are saying that Harper usually walks out of the front entrance of Levine on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. Why don’t we pay him a visit?

It’s high time we show him what happens when he messes with engineering students.
