Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 17- The time has come

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4- Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 17- The time has come

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.

It don’t matter.

I don’t care if I have one more series review to do, I’m a week late but I’m also a week late in talking about this new opening. I can’t tell you hype I got when I first saw it. The music is completely different from what we’ve previously got with other Jojo openings. Anyway, an in-depth breakdown will take place after I talk about this episode.

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri- A less worse Guilty Crown

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri- A less worse Guilty Crown

The ride hasn’t stopped but we’re at our stop for now.

Kabaneri initially started off as something I overlooked as the season began and as the end of the first week drew to a close, I happened to watch it on a whim, only to be impressed by the visuals, music, and practically everything else that set everything up quite nicely. After a few weeks, it became apparent that I wasn’t the only person feeling this way about our “Shingeki no Kyojin” with zombies. In the end, I think a better comparison can be made to the studio’s previous work with Guily Crown. Compared to highschool kids fighting against an established government, I think fighting against super-zombies with steam powered weaponry ontop of trains is a way more interesting premise which ultimately leads to a more enjoyable experience.

But did it turn out decently in the end for our original studio work that grabbed everyone’s attentions for the season? Let’s find out

Boku no Hero Academia- Zero To Hero

Boku no Hero Academia- Zero To Hero

So here I was writing the review for Ace Attorney, only to remember it’s 24-ish episodes and that I didn’t need to talk about it yet. As if the delays weren’t bad enough, yeah?

Boku no Hero Academia or BnHA is the “other” hero series that’s making strides that isn’t One Punch Man back in the East. I actually marvel at how something of this genre with the whole School and Hero thing haven’t been combined before. I’m damn sure it actually has but this seems to be the most prominent one out of it in recent memory. I didn’t expect much but I was genuinely happy with what I watched.

We’re finally introduced to Kishibe Rohan, a rather important character and the technical 4th (0r 5th if you don’t Jotaro) man of the regular crew in Part 4. He definitely seems like a villain now but I can definitely vouch for the genuine “humanity” in him to do what he loves, he just happens to be eccentric about it.

I will say that I absolutely love this rendition of Rohan’s voice over Kamiya Hiroshi’s voice work from All-Star battle and other media. I just can’t put my finger on it, he sounds way too young.
