Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders- The Road to Egypt

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders- The Road to Egypt

Only half of the journey is over.

I was extremely biased towards Part 1 and 2’s adaptations that I really never gave any of them a full talk about them back then. Part 3 however is the most widespread part of the series and is also the most iconic so I figured I should give my two-cents on the adaptation. This post shall be a quick recap of the final episode and my thoughts on the adaptation so far and my expectations for the coming conclusion.

Side note: Dandy and SAO are up while Blade Dance will be a two parter.

The real ride begins January

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 23- We All Live In A…

The last stretch before the horizon.

We’ve got a week before I’m left with no fabulous Jojo. While I know the break is well deserved, I can only imagine how well they will animate the superior leg of fights before we reach DIO’s mansion. To get there though, the Joestar will have to do one more crazy stunt with another set of transportation before reaching their destination.

Surprise surprise. While I don’t exactly remember Suzi getting that much showtime in the manga, she gets a hefty scene today.

He’s back

And he’s black.

Well with that pun I’ve been wanting to say for the longest time, let’s get on with it as we conclude the penultimate fight arc before the seasonal break

We’re around 2-3 episode away from the seasonal break we’re going to get.

Anyways, it’s once again a set up episode for the conclusion at the second part but it did get emotional by the end.

Either way, all hell is going to break loose next week.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 20- Sweet Merciful Kakyoin

Kakyoin gets back at the freak of a baby in the best way possible. Thank you David Productions for not cutting that out.

4 Episodes left until we get to Egypt and experience a break until Winter. Knowing how this plays out, looks like the following Stand fights will both be two-parters. Other than that, I give major props to this episode since I really felt the desperation in Kakyoin’s attempts to convince everybody that the Mannish Boy was the stand user. The manga did well but the anime really nailed Kakyoin being singled out from the crew.

Oh sweet vengeance.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 19- Stands on a Plane

We arrive at one of the more anticipated fights in the whole of Part 3.

My predictions for the whole Sun and Death 13 fights came down to this. Instead of getting an entire episode with the Sun like we did, I expected the Sun to last for half an episode while we got introduced to Mannish Boy and Death 13 or just ended with getting the baby and boarding the plane. Continuity problems aside as the episodes show (they were both paced near perfectly), I did not expect the Sun to get an entire episode.

So that aside, we’ve only got a few more weeks until we enter Egypt and the series going on break. While I’m sad we won’t get Jojo for another season, Fall is pretty stacked so I guess we can deal with it.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 18- They did it

They did it.

They actually did it. They managed to fit the joke fight of Part 3 that lasted 2 chapters in the manga into a full-fledged episode. I honestly didn’t think they could pull it off. Hats off to you David Productions. You actually managed to pull one of the things I honestly thought would be somewhat impossible. What a way to do an episode preview too, Mannish Boy seems even more terrifying and disturbing with next week’s fight.

Short talk for a short fight

But first, a whole episode on THE SUN
