David Pro pulling out all the stops introducing the rest of the Assassination squad early. I didn’t expect this fight to go on for another episode but with that extended flashback, I really can’t complain. Hell, you can even recognize the silhouette of the guy who killed the assassination squad members. Anyone else recognize Bakugo’s voice coming out of Ghihaccio? Oddly fitting.

I don’t think I can say that for Narancia’s voice though honestly, his voice is still the most contentious out of me. I think the ASB voice nailed that tone so goddamn perfectly that hearing Deku’s voice trying to be a little gangsta-shit like Narancia isn’t working out at all for me yet.

The deductive ability of Jojo’s mook villains are really something to be noticed.

I imagined we’d get the Assassination squad to be introduced next week but damn, they went ahead and gave us a preview of all them this week. Even Nero showed up at the back with Melone and Ghihaccio in tow. Makes sense for Pesci to not be around since Prosciutto is the getting the logistics for now. I cannot wait for that Grateful Dead fight, man.

Also, I imagined Pericolo’s voice to be a bit lighter than but this works way better.

When you think about it, Sale’s ability is pretty awesome for such a mook character. I know I’m not the only one who thinks this because Sale actually comes back in a way some of you wouldn’t expect.

My predictions were off once again as it seems we’ll get Trish’s introduction and the formal kick-off to the part’s main plot next week. While I didn’t say it, I at least thought that if they weren’t going to end it on the urinal stash, it was going to end at the funny outtro where Giorno plays up his gangster side and demands the driver to start driving again.

People have waited years for a certain set of panels to be adapted and we definitely got something.

I definitely didn’t think they’d go for a full sequence off of just on 5 panels but they went above and beyond anyone’s expectations with that dance. Even after watching it again, I’m at a loss for words on how to exactly describe it. Some clearer shots of the actual dance moves might have been better but I’m not complaining after that.

It could have been worse but looks like this will end up as a double-feature since it was a pretty busy past weekend and week. Much to my surprise, we’re still not off the boat ride even after Episode 6 so I guess they’re planning on doing Sale’s fight in one go which does fit better to my memory because they were definitely on that boat for a while. Abacchio gets his origin story a couple fights earlier compared to when the manga decided to drop this story on us. Originally, we would have gotten his story during the Man in the Mirror but I guess it makes sense in hindsight to give Abacchio his time now since Man in the Mirror is Fugo’s first and only fight so David Pro is probably prepping that for him.

Don’t think I missed Abacchio getting some cake, David Pro, I see what you fucking did there.

Well I almost called it with how they were going to show off Buccellati’s crew but they only lasted a couple second in stills.

Anyway, I’m just happy Polpo is done and dealt with and now we can get onto the real meat of the story. There a bit too many far-away blank faces that I’m not particularly fond of but with animation of this quality, I can’t complain yet because Black Sabbath is hardly a demanding fight to begin with. The sequencing of the final scene was a bit different but nothing to complain about. It would be an understatement to say that I’m really excited for next week for the beginning of Soft Machine.

Anyways, yeah, I’ve forgotten how Requiem stands work but I wonder why that arrow pierce didn’t affect Giorno at all.

Two more weeks until the Gang Star train leaves its station.

We get out first proper enemy stand fight next week as this week only served to start the fight with Polpo’s Stand where we’ll get its conclusion next week. I imagine most fights will end up this way since unlike Part 3 and 4, there’s not too many one-off fights and Part 5 has the most amount of action-packed fights in the series so we won’t be all too bored when the combat kicks up a fair notch a lot earlier than before.

One other thing I definitely need to mention is the stellar work DavidPro was able to put into the first two episodes. Not only were the visuals spot on but the added scenes with Giorno’s motivations definitely do a bit better to portray his character has his lack of characterization during the middle parts of the series is a frequent complaint for the part. I can’t wait to see what else they add.
