Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 22- Explosion

My faith with David Production has gone far and beyond satisfying my expectations. D.P has seem to have prioritized a majority of good scenes for this episode which more than makes up for how Killer Queen looked up in the far-away shot last week. To make it better, I now see why they tackled Yukako and Cinderella earlier because the conclusion of this episode sent us straight into Sheer Heart Attack, which I can’t wait to see.

Although the episode quality has gotten some backlash after the hours the episode came out, I was still very much satisfied with the episode. He’s here folks, our main villain of Part 4, just a highly deranged man with access to a sure-fire way to kill anyone he wants and get away with it. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t end up being a serial killer like this? No doubt someone would be less weird about it but hey, it’s something to consider.

One more week til we shift gears properly to match chase.

In many ways, I can see why they would move this episode ahead of Kira’s formal introduction. There was only one “arc” that separated Kira’s introduction to his actual encounter with the main crew so having this little love-story in between didn’t keep the tension up. It’s honestly a change for the better since it’s another week I won’t have to wait to get to Sheer Heart Attack. It also helps to have Shigechi’s character sink in so there’s that.

Anyway, let’s get to Cinderella.

Completely forgot about Shigechi’s episode due to being sick and there’s no better time to have a dual episode recap when we have two of Shigechi’s episodes to cover. Let’s get straight to it so I can get back to getting the other series recaps in. For me, I never liked Shigechi all that much and basically treated him the same as his popular nickname implies, a Dodoria. This arc was special to me because we get so much Josuke and Okuyasu moments and faces and that’s basically what all my screencaps are for this episode.

Our villain has finally arrived, and he’s as strange looking as he did in his first appearance.

There’s not much else to talk about, this ain’t even really an arc, it’s just THE set-up episode to fully brings us into the second half of Part 4. But let’s dive into what makes Part 4 great since with Kira’s very short introduction, we’ll get a lot more focused plot featuring him and the unity of the citizens of Morioh when his treachery strikes close to home.

By the time this already goes up, Kira’s voice and appearance should be revealed.

I know I’ve said this numerous times during Stardust Crusaders but I really have to hand it to David Productions for being able to turn nearly every segment of the manga chapters into something entertaining, concise, and accurate. If my memory serves correctly, Part 4 is scheduled for around 30-35ish episodes and we’re already around the half-way point to it, and as a avid fan of the series, I doubted that around 30 episodes would be enough. Seeing as how the Nijimura Brothers arc took 3 episodes, my doubts were definitely there. But now that we’re here, with around half left, I’m starting to think it’s pretty possible for Part 4 to end on a decent pacing schedule. More on that later so let’s get to the damn rats already and how David took an already strangely exciting mini-arc and got it done nicely in an episode.

Sakamoto Desu Ga?- A Decent Adaptation

Sakamoto Desu Ga?- A Decent Adaptation

Consider this a mini-review because there’s only so much I can talk about a comedy series that focuses on a single character.

One of the very few series I happen to pick up and read before an adaptation begins happens to be Sakamoto. Around a few years ago, I stumbled upon an iconic page where Sakamoto manages to sit down properly on his desk, even after his chair is pulled from him. This was one of the very few adaptations that I was looking forward too and while I doubted Studio DEEN, everyone was pissing themselves over Konosuba and with its apparent popularity, I had hopes for DEEN to succeed.

Did they indeed succeed? Well let’s take a quick look.
