The saga 10 years in the making finally comes to a close.
Much has been said about the nature of Stone Ocean’s animation between its production values and the delivery of its batch release format but one thing can be made certain: It is a fitting finale to the series.
It’s been over a year since the first batch of episodes dropped and while I can admit they started slow, I was pretty hooked to the finale starting from Underworld. I have a couple of things to cover so let’s get started on evaluating the end of an era.

Only took me a whole month.
Joining late to the party as usual, I think the conversation towards the quality and enjoyment of Stone Ocean has moved past the content and toward the delivery.
It seems to be the prevailing opinion that batch releases really ruin the pacing and I’m inclined to agree. The fact that I would have been even later to this post without having learned about Part 2 of Stone Ocean being released second-hand is testament to that.

A blackout in my internet gave me the time to watch all 12 episodes of Stone Ocean’s first Netflix season, I’m almost two months overdue so let’s not waste any time.
Since this talk will be from the perspective of someone who read the manga, spoilers ahead.

And so the story of our bedazzling gang-stars comes to a close, with a dual ending I assume most anime-only watchers wouldn’t have expected. It also would have been way too easy if I titled this post a Golden Experience so I had to resist.
Notice: I wrote 99% of this review two weeks ago and now just finished watching the last episode so watch out for some addition to the post since some last minute things were addressed.

So at first I loaded up by seasonal review mode to talk about Part 5 but I realized that this isn’t the end, in fact, we have an hour long finale coming up for Part 5’s conclusion no doubt covering the Rolling Stones Arc that I mentioned last week. It’ll be nice to see the crew up and moving around instead of just cutting to a shot of Giorno, Mista, and Polnareff being mobsters.
So, where’s my Fugo movie?

I’m getting confused again
I’m also remembering the existence of the Rolling Stones arc and with it so prominently shown in the first opening, the new ending, and how David Pro wouldn’t ignore something like this. I’m not sure if there are episodes to spare but it would only take around 1 episode.

Jesus, calm down with the aspirations Narancia.
I realize I failed to discuss the matter of the altered opening and there’s not really much to say other than it’s what I expected and I wasn’t as mesmerized by it since there’s only so much you can do with skipping time and seeing the future. In fact, I thought it would take more distortions then just that one bit near the end.
