Haters of the persona series say that the persona series is copying the jojo series but as always if they'd do a quick google search this could've been avoided. They had mocked me for liking the persona series, saying it's a, "rip off of jojo" BUT the jojo series was made in 2012 October 5th, while the persona series started in 1996. I know I'm not the only one who'd been attacked by these people on a certain level which is why I'm happy to finally prove them wrong.
1. The jojo series is ripping off the persona series
2. They have nothing to do with each other.
Believe what you want, but it's undeniable that the persona series came first.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (Japanese: ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 Hepburn: JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki, serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1987 to 2004 and in monthly seinen manga magazine Ultra Jump since 2005. The series is divided into eight parts, each following the adventures of a new protagonist bearing the "JoJo" nickname; the eighth part, JoJolion, began serialization in May 2011. The first six parts form a saga detailing the supernatural conflicts between members of the Joestar family and various villains, while the latter two parts follow a continuity reboot, taking place in an alternate universe with plot parallels to the original. The manga is Shueisha's second largest ongoing series by volume count, with its chapters collected in 125 tankōbon volumes and counting.
Huh didn't think about that
but still I think that the series dont have that much to do with each other I mainly did this to prove that the persona series wasnt a ripoff of jojo to all the haters
Sorry I didn't think of the manga but still you can believe what you want to believe
They've nothing to do with each other or on is a ripoff of the other
What do you think sir flareon
I think you're so insecure about the fact that your wittle baby series ripped off a series for real men that you could only use misinformation devoid of any common sense or rational thought to claim otherwise
JoJo Part 4: main character goes to a small town in the middle of nowhere because of family affairs. there he befriends a bunch of locals, both high schoolers and adults and solves various cases that somehow relate to the strange powers he and his friends have. There's also a serial killer in the town and our jolly cast attempts to figure out who he is in order to stop him.

Should I continue?
Ok I got it sorry I just didn't have enough information I didn't think of it ok
I'm sorry for accidentally saying something false just please dont berate me fo an honest mistake
Again I'm sorry for saying that I admit I didn't have enough information and I'm sorry but to be fair it has been said that after I did more research, that jojo inspired persona but mainly on the idea of stands but even still I dont think that persona is a ripoff

chill dude, no one said that. And no one's berating you either. Jojo and persona are both cool and most people who've tried both will say so.
As a side note, the very first Persona games was, as admitted by the developers, inspired by Jojo's concept of Stands, as both the original director and Araki were friends. They even asked his permission to use the simular concept just in case they are stepping over any boundary
Inspiration and rip-off are not the same, do remember that and you should be fine
I didn't mean th that in a hostile way and I do know that jojo is an amazing series that deserves all the praise it gets, I just feel very strongly about this. I say this all calmly, I'm very sorry if that sounded worse than how I meant it to and I'm sorry if it didn't sound the way i wanted it to. Also are they actually friends because that's really cool. Again I'm sorry if what I said came out wrong or didn't sound the way I wanted it to but seriously thank you both.
Funfact: This is embarrassing, Kazuma Kaneko and Hirohiko Araki are known to be fans of each other's series with one finding inspiration of the other and even working together at one point. Although it's audiences suffer differences.
Jojo’s bizzare Persona
Someone suggest that to them we might be able to inspire a crossover
