I have no idea why they decided to make this two episodes but in all honesty, I guess the length does fit pretty nicely. This week and the next, Hol Horse will be undertaking yet another attempt at the Joestar Crew’s life. This time, he is partnered with Boingo and his future sight. With this lasting for another week, I can predict that we have 3-4 more episodes before we finally reach DIO.
Well, apparently the side chapter is going to get two episodes before the FINAL arc is entered. That being said, I think I got used to D’arby’s voice actor now and of course, I still favored the line delivery and smoothness of Utsumi Kenji but I can’t say I hated our current D’arby’s performance.
I will say though, watching this while knowing what’s going to happen somewhat lessens the tension but that should be a given.
My most anticipated fight barring the final fights has finally arrived and it is as great as I expected it to be. I only have one problem with the episode but like an actual review, I’ll just put it at the end of this. Gather around folks, it’s time to see the birth of Yugioh and the concept of Shadow Games where you lose your soul if you lose, this is D’ARBY THE GAMBLER.
Not much was left for that fight so let’s get this done quick so we can patiently await for next week.
However, from the looks of it, it just might end up as a single episode. Both good and band vibes coming from this but in the end, we’re all waiting for the DIO fight anyway. The feels train is prepping its engines soon. Anyway, we have to move over the hurdle that is Alessi to reach that point.
One of the more disturbing fights-actually no. Alessi is most likely the most disturbing Stand fight the series has to offer since it involves child Polnareff’s penis and a much more disturbing effect on the girl who was washing his hair. I won’t spoil that much for you since there’s some extreme shock value to that.
Anyways, 2 more weeks until one of the greatest fights the series has graced us with so let’s get done with Alessi.
The comedy ride comes to a stop while creepiness will settle in for the next two weeks. I haven’t been shutting up about that particular future fight but it really is something that stands out in the awkwardness factor when I look back and remember it. Based on the episode preview, it’s going to be two episodes so my most anticipated fight will take place in around 3 weeks.
Anyways, let’s get to one of the more memorable scenes from Part 3.
Joseph and Avdol get their screentime.
Like I mentioned before, we’re going back to more comedic/puzzle style fights until a few fights before we reach DIO. It entertained me hearing Polnareff noting out how Anubis was one of the few combat-oriented stands they encountered, cause he’s exactly right. This fight is gonna be a puzzle, the next one a puzzle, and the one following probably one of the best puzzles. So while there may be some annoyance to no direct fights, the final fight will surely make up for that so I advise people to not be so turned away from these.
