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.

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.

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.

It only takes one episode for Joseph to somewhat make-up for the 16 years he wasn’t with Josuke, well, just a bit. Shizuka’s appearance doesn’t really do much but add a side-character and make up for Joseph and Josuke’s lost time and other than that, we move straight onto one of the other highlights of Part 4 involving our 4th man in the group, Rohan. But all that stuff comes next time so let’s get our little mini-arc out of here.

I’ll keep things short than normal/short as per usual since there’s nothing all that new at this point than what has already been said multiple times for the past few weeks.

Make way for the Series Reviews after this, which will be my main goal in trying to get done in the next few days.

Consider this, Akira only did what he did because he didn’t want to finish school, work hard at all, and mostly did petty crimes like stealing shit. Aside from a few out-of-character-in-hindsight murders, he really wasn’t all that much of a villain. But the series itself, at least the anime adaptation here, recognized this and had two doses of foreshadowing for those keen enough to notice.

Really behind on this one and for a few series, I think their finales are coming along this week. We’ll see how those end up and I’ll get the series reviews up and running appropriately. But things are all shaping up toward a resemblance of a finale, as they all should. I’m still wondering what series are going to be 12 episodes or 13 though.
