Where would one start with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure?

I've only played the fighting games, so this was my introduction. But the characters really interested me, so I'm wondering where to begin with this series.

Just read the manga chronologically from the beginning. The first part is okay, but it does draw you in right off the bat, and the series picks up pretty quickly after that. Part two is one of my favorite Jojo stories.

The anime adaptation from 2012 of parts 1 and 2 was really good, as is the currently airing adaptation of part 3, but you're way cooler if you read the manga first.

Manga is also cool if you care about the one or two scenes that aren't important at all that the show left out.

Part 5 has kinda lost my interest a bit but I need to push through it at some point.

i can't remember any part of the manga that was left out of the show but it's probably happened given that it's been so long since i've read the manga

i got like that with part 6 and really had to struggle through it but i'm glad I did because part 7 is my favorite jojo story ever

They left out the part where Jojo's dad makes a comment about his dog which is what gives Dio the idea, and in part two the left out the part where he stops in some town in the desert and beats some guys up.

At least, I don't remember seeing either in the show, and both are pretty unimportant.
Also toned down those racist cops a lot.


And man, the end of part 5 just seems dull to me, and I honestly don't care about this villain, seems the only reason they're after his at first is just because he's the boss and no other reason and now it's just cause Trish, who I can't say they've made me care about too much since she barely talks.
