“Oh? You’re Approaching Me?” is taken straight from an anime series called  JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. This significant quote comes from a scene in which two characters by the names of Dio Brando and Jotaro Kuju proceed toward each other. Later on, this quote was made famous through fan edits and alternative versions of this exact scene posted on social media.

The original scene, where protagonist Jotaro Kujo confronts Dio Brando, the stories main villain, takes place in DIO’s World, Chapter 143 of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders manga. This issue was published on February 24th, 1992.

It begins with the visibly angry Jotaro walking towards Dio, who asks “Oh? You’re approaching me? Instead of running away, you’re coming right to me?” Jotaro responds with “I can’t beat the shit out of you without getting closer.”  In 2015, Stardust Crusaders was made into an anime show, with this exact scene being aired July 15, 2015, appearing in episode 46 of “DIO’s World, Part 2.”
