Part 5 had a lot of potential, it's a shame that Araki could not capitalise it. Aside from Beach boy, White Album, Metallica and Oasis, every other arc was lame. Italian setting was nice on the other hand though.
If only he could have explored the mafia setting a bit more, a weak JJBA part overall.

P.S - Subjective opinion.

I won't beat the dead horse about Vento Aureo's wasted potential. So I'll just say this...

"You should at least give part 5 a try, if for nothing else than the genuinely good bits. If you do that and still don't like it then fine, skip it. It won't affect your enjoyment of the later parts since part 5 is pretty self contained."

Yeah....no. First time I've heard someone say something about skipping part 5. It's usually the first two parts since people just want to get to the stands. But please don't skip anything.

I see no amount of "wasted potential" in Part 5 that isn't in any other arc.

We all have our least favorite arcs. None deserved to be skipped.

I disliked Part 5 even moreso than Part 1, but I still didn't stop reading it through to the end. Now that the properly accurate re-translation is up to the Man in the Mirror arc, there's even less reason to skip.

What you should do is: read the entire manga from Part 1 to 8 (although 8's still running, so if you wanted, you could just finish Part 7 and then wait until Part 8 finishes), or watch the anime of the first three Parts (as they're a pitch-perfect adaptation) and then read from Part 4 onwards.

And, if you've got the stamina, you can even read the light novel Purple Haze Feedback, following the character Fugo after the events of Part 5, after you finish reading Part 5.

I just have to ask, why your avatar is Giorno! Not in some contradictory way but I feel like if what you say is so, how did that come to be?

Because Giorno does look pretty badass in some of the manga panels in Part 5 (such as the one I chose as my avatar) and, even though Part 5 might be my least favourite Part, there are still things I love about it. Gold Experience is one of my favourite Stand designs, the group dynamic is only second to Part 4 (I honestly don't know who my favourite member of Buccellati's gang is between Abbacchio, Narancia, Fugo, Trish, & Buccellati himself), some of the fights are pretty interesting to read (Black Sabbath, the train fight, King Crimson vs. Metallica, all of Narancia's solo battles), and I've gradually been realising that it's not as bad as I thought with the new translations and this French girl I follow on Tumblr ('jazztronic', in case you were wondering) who writes and reblogs posts about Part 5 that have given me a fresh and more positive perspective on it.

Thats stupid, just as stupid as people playing a game like Mass Effect 3 and not playing the ones before it. Even if its bad (which it isn't) you should never skip anything unless its a Naruto filler. Thats just playing smart. :laugh

SPOILERS
:giornod So this thread ... Part 5 is actually my favorite jojo part... although I have to be honest its totally not for everybody, mainly because it doesn't have a coherent flow like parts 3 4 had, nor does it have a balls the the wall approach like 6 and 7 did. What I mean is that although some fights are some of my favorites in the franchise( like aerosmith vs littlefeet) is not the main focus of the series like I think part 6´s is, and there is little to no ¨down time¨(maybe when they are inside MR Presidents room).
I love everything about this series, even the common complains mainly beacuse or it suits the narrative or its original in it on itself. for example, King Crimson despicable ¨just works¨ stand, Giorno attitude towards passione in general and his goal of becoming king of the pira...I mean gangstar, hell I even like fugo and his disappearance ,I know its a actual plothole that came to be thanks to Araki changing his mind, but to be honest he was already the most mysterious member of giorno´s gang and such its a nice out of the blue change...sometimes people just leave and that is it...besides purplehaze its way to dangerous when you consider that diavolo could trick him to punch fugo itself or any member of the gang.
END SPOILERS
at the end of the day...there is nothing really that plot essential that carries on to part 6... so you theoretically can, but I feel you gain a nice story about goals expectation and respect against a predetermined destine and how you can overcome it with enough determination and a soild squad
