Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure- Vento Aureo Episode 3: Trial by Fire

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure- Vento Aureo Episode 3: Trial by Fire

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.

First off, that new opening: I like it

That ending though, I could hardly believe my ears but I can’t help but like it as well.

Giorno and Buccellati’s fight definitely seems way more direct and brutal compared to the fights in the other parts, I had almost forgotten how confrontational this encounter was and I was also reminded of another reason to be excited for this part: The animation will finally show what the hell is going on. With the amount of crazy effects in Part 5, interpreting a number of panels was a bit difficult when I was reading them so now I can finally see what’s going on. I always had a rough idea what was going on but I won’t lie seeing Giorno’s powers animated definitely makes it feel ever slightly less bullshit than it is. I can’t wait to get to the other fights in this part.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure- Vento Aureo Episode 1: Welcome back to Italy

At long last, Vento Aureo is here.

Truth be told, I caught the camera-recording of the first episode way back in July but now that I got to see the first episode, I’m excited to finally talk about it. And no, I will not call it Golden Wind because Vento Aureo is at least more sensible than Diamond is not Crash. Because this recap is already long, I’ll just share my quick sentiments right now, which only want to address the seiyuu changes from the game. Now, this already happened to Stardust Crusaders and DiU (of which the only person I really wanted to remain as they were was Josuke) but I’m not sure if I wanted Sugiyama and Akabane out as Bruno and Mista, hell I think the entirety of Part 5’s VAs were fantastic in the games which includes Abbachio, Narancia, and Fugo. Fugo’s VA in particular is someone I’m partial for so I’m sad he’s out. Narancia’s voice was pitch fucking perfect in the games so I’m a bit sad to see him go. I’ll hope for the best since I haven’t exactly been let down. Also, pink on Giorno is nowhere near as great as blue.
