Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 30: Cats Love Yoshikage Kira

Except it’s called Stray Cat. I would have liked Leaf Cat better. Or Plant Cat? I remember when I first read these chapters that the leaf cat was probably the weirdest thing I ever saw. But now it’s one of the more tame things in Jojo’s. It’s really cute, too. In the usual strange way, of course. This episode is a simple one. Shinobu found a stray cat that jumped into their basement from their window and she tried being friendly with it but she got angry with it and started waving a broom around. Creepily, it clung onto the ceiling and saw that it had a hole in its throat. She runs upstairs to Kira and tells him this so he can check it out. turns out, Shinobu accidentally killed it in the craze and Kira ends up burying it in the backyard. A few days pass, a strange plant grows where the cat was buried. When we see, it’s a plant shaped like a cat and it has a mind of its own. No surprise, it’s the very same cat that was dead, but had somehow turned into this plant. Kira comes across it and knows that it really was shot by the arrow and is a Stand user. It doesn’t show any hostility towards him, but it does when Shinobu comes outside. It attacks her and then starts attacking Kira when he protects Shinobu. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 39: Goodbye Morioh – The Heart of Gold (Final Impression)

Isn’t it amazing that we’ve finally come to the end? This show took up nearly the whole year, but now my Jojo Fridays have come to an end once again and again I feel empty. As usual, Jojo endings are usually bittersweet. Even though the heroes succeed in the end, there’s always something that just can’t be fixed. In the previous parts it was major characters dying. In this case, all of our major characters live, but the victims of Kira Yoshikage are gone and their families continue to wonder where they are. As usual, lots of emotions were felt in this finale. But first Kira’s hand fetish is so bad that Mona Lisa’s hands gave him a boner when he was a kid. And now I can’t look at the Mona Lisa the same way anymore. Kinky freak. Firefighters, police officers, and an ambulance arrive to aid Kira. Kira is about to activate Bites the Dust on the woman paramedic, and while he’s getting nasty over her hand, Hayato quickly explains to the other how Bites the Dust works and tells them that they have to stop him. Jotaro is the one that needs to stop him but he’s too far away from Kira. But thankfully Koichi used Act 3 to make Kira’s body heavy, giving Jotaro the opportunity to stop time, be the badass that he is, and beat the shit out of Kira. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episodes 37+38: Crazy Diamond is Unbreakable, Parts 1&2

These two episodes consist of most of the final fight against Kira. We’ve finally come to the end. Thanks to Hayato’s gamble to call Josuke so he’d make it on time for the last reset, Kira was stupid enough to yell his real name out loud, revealing himself to Josuke and Okuyasu as they stood right behind him. Even though Hayato’s plan with Stray Cat didn’t work, his Plan B did. The time has come for this part’s Jojo and villain finally have their face off. To protect himself, Kira had to release Bites the Dust which meant that Rohan and the others wouldn’t die. The rest that follows is the usual Jojo fare when it comes to fights. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 36: Bites the Dust, Part 2

I forgot Hayato tried killing himself. What kind of kid carries around a box cutter? :/ Though it was at this point that I felt so bad for this boy. He’s only 11 and he knows this huge life-or-death secret. He’s seen people get killed before his eyes and he’s in so much despair that he would actually kill himself. But he couldn’t because his fake dad won’t let him, so he knows that if he doesn’t do anything he’s going to have to live with that guilt while Kira gets away living a peaceful life. Yikes.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 35: Bites the Dust, Part 1

I didn’t think they could finish Part 4 in 39 episodes but here we are in the very last arc, my favorite part. Things are starting to look very bad for Kira as his father tells him that Rohan and the others are going to fully investigate him. He’s killed Hayato and the timing couldn’t be any worse. Kira’s so nervous that he’s biting at his nails and making them bleed, but luck is on his side when he gets a new ability when the arrow pierces him. We get the next morning, where everything seems like nothing has happened because Hayato is alive and well for some reason. It’s the start of a new day and they’re all having breakfast, while Hayato is lost in thought wondering what he should do to save himself and his mom. We get the weather report, we get Shinobu making tea, the teapot shattering, the phone ringing, and then Kira comes down the stairs happily humming and smiling with his new do (which I don’t care for). He tells them not to fight, they should be a happy family, and other fake shit like that. Hayato leaves for school and plans on following Kira again but Kira sneaks up behind Hayato and makes him walk together. Because he’s in such a good mood, he reveals to Hayato his real name but he doesn’t think it matters because he’s "matured". He feels invincible and awesome and obviously that’s not good at all. Hayato notes the creepy confidence as they part ways, but Hayato isn’t alone for too long as Rohan appears in front of him with possibly his worst outfit. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episodes 33 & 34: July 15th (Thurs), Parts 3 & 4

I didn’t expect this to be a four-parter, and since I didn’t have enough to say for last week’s episode, I combined it with this week’s episode. I probably would have only talked about how cool it is to fit a gun and an entire taxi (with the driver still in it) in a folded piece of paper so I didn’t make the review. I think I’ve been having a little trouble reviewing this because I’ve read the manga and I already know what’s going to happen next. The battles with Enigma and Cheap Trick are interesting but they aren’t the most exciting compared to other battles we had. If I had no prior knowledge of these battles, I probably would have been more excited about them. Maybe that’s one bad thing about reviewing something you’ve already read. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 32: July 15th (Thurs), Part 2

Transmission boy is taken care of in typical Jojo fashion. Josuke is smarter than he looks and used Crazy Diamond to "heal" the tower and send the attacks to where they first came from. Turns out transmission dude actually wants to stay in the transmission tower because he’s not good with people so he begs to stay in there. Josuke and the others try to get some info out of him and he mentions what Kira’s father told him. Koichi has already been eliminated by another Stand user, so the boys get out of there. This is when Enigma Boy’s turn comes in. Koichi is nowhere to be found and they all scrambling around searching for him. Josuke goes back to the hospital to persuade Yuya to help him out since he has a great sense of smell, and after some much silly talk, Josuke heals him and Yuya agrees. We then learn about Enigma Boy himself and how his Stand ability is trapping someone in a folded piece of paper. Yes, in paper. But he can only do that when he figures out the person’s nervous tick. He startled Koichi while he was walking to school and when Koichi blinked twice in fear, he trapped him. He broke into Josuke’s house and kidnapped Tomoko, finding out her tick to be swallowing when in fear. He purposely used Tomoko to make Josuke get scared so he could do his tick, which he thinks is biting his bottom lip even though Josuke hadn’t done it yet. Yuya still finds Koichi’s scent around them and he knows the paper Josuke took out of his mom’s pocket is bad news. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 31: July 15th (Thurs), Part 1

Show this screenshot to someone who has never seen Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and ask them what they think the hell is going on here, I bet it’ll be hilarious. Jojo out of context is the best. Honestly, I don’t really care about the transmission tower guy, I don’t even remember his name. I don’t care about his ridiculously huge calluses that somehow hid a knife. So I don’t have really much to say here, except for the different direction the anime is taking. READ MORE...

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 29: Highway Star, Part 2

I love Echoes Act 3 with all my being and it was literally in the episode for a couple of seconds. Also Koichi too. Koichi’s a cute little guy, but there’s that side of him that really would belong in a gang. Maybe not a motorcycle gang, because I agree with the bitchy receptionist nurse that his little legs wouldn’t reach, but he could look cool? So Josuke is blazing through Morioh on the motorcycle, figuring out a way to find the Stand user. He tries to contact Koichi through a payphone at first but the Stand reaches him through teleportation easily, so he’s forced to speed off on the motorcycle again. On the way, Josuke ruins two peoples’ lives by taking their cellphones. He also almost killed a woman with her baby but he was smart and figured out a way to dodge them. While he was causing despair upon some people, he asked Koichi on the cellphone to help him out with finding out anything related to the tunnel. Once he does, Josuke tries his best to get the Stand away from him, which included making walls, trapping the footsteps into a random car that was at the harbor (Josuke probably ruined another person’s life), stole the gas and put it into the motorcycle and drove to the hospital.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 28: Highway Star, Part 1

The only thing I cared about was watching Rohan’s house burn. :) I felt this episode to be rushed. Other than Mikitaka himself, I actually wasn’t too crazy about these certain chapters. It was entertaining to see Rohan stab his own pinkie with a pen, Mikitaka throwing up, and then the actual house burning down from a stupid magnifying glass. And the fact that Rohan didn’t give a crap because he wanted to find out how Josuke was cheating, even when he could have lost his entire home. Rohan’s a mess. Maybe the reason why I thought it was rushed was because they left out a couple of funny lines like when Rohan was about to test the hardness of the dice and bite on them, then Josuke blurted out that he took a shit earlier and forgot to wash his hands. And then the sneezing and Mikitaka sweating. Basically everything else was the same though. They’ve done this before where they’ve taken out some funny lines, most likely to save time and to get right into the action, but that just sacrifices some fun for us. READ MORE...
