Eight hearts well spent.

Please educate me!
I feel like(*) I'm missing something important and very entertaining, and that everyone knows except me.

Where does ORA ORA / 8 hearts / "next meal" come from?

(*) - Yea yea, I know it is not important at all and not everyone knows it. I'm still hopeful about the entertaining bit.

I have no idea what "ORA ORA" or "8 hearts well-spent" mean because I don't watch or read it myself. But in the prologue to Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Dio first shows how much trouble he'll be by stealing a kiss from his brother Jojo's childhood sweetheart and declaring "You thought your first kiss would be Jojo; but it was I, Dio!" In JBA, every character keeps the posture of an angry god in their most relaxed moments and nothing is said without the intensity of a natural disaster.

That middle one is my fault; I assumed the ORA ORA was a reference to Juste Belmont in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance. "Hearts" are a resource used to activate the "subweapons" in this game, one of which is the Sacred Fist; when this is used, Juste throws a series of rapid-fire punches while shouting "ORA ORA ORA!" Dunno if that was actually what the original poster of ORA ORA had in mind, [highlight]and no idea where anyone is even seeing "next meal"[/highlight] er, nevermind, the exact quote was "easy meal" and I get it now; I was just trying to amuse myself with a private comment whose meaning nobody else was expected to understand. No intentional confusion of anyone else was intended; it was just the equivalent of muttering to myself in a low voice.

ORA ORA ORA and "You thought it was XXX, but it was I, XXX" jokes are completely based on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure -- I also haven't read/watched it myself, but I hang out in anime forums enough and it's a pretty rampant meme.

Oh, well, since we're talking JJBA memes...
