Even DP knew that a straight adaptation of this episode would be too boring. They keep showing off the lone radio tower and Yukako just shows up in the middle of the episode to foreshadow her arc to come next week. But first things first, I’ve just noticed all the transition effects during the part in the Opening where Josuke, Koichi, and Okuyasu pose with their Stands. Josuke has his sick diamond-colored effect, Okuyasu has a hand come up to the screen, and Koichi finally has Echoes show up in the opening so he looks less silly in his pose at the start and it also shows up again near the end. Kind of hilarious since we’ll see that changed really soon.
I almost forgot how much a dick Hazamada was and I still don’t know how to feel about him and Tamami being shortened already since Hazamada calls Koichi a shortie when he’s as short as him in the episode when he was supposed to be “taller”.
