So far so good. The finale has yet to reach any scenes of serious awkwardness in its visual quality for me to really complain on anything about. This week’s intro was also radically changed to fit the Bites the Dust saga with varying amounts of time fuckery, music distortion, and utilizing the final chorus from the full version of Great Days. I personally wouldn’t have minded something a bit more simpler to listen to but I’m glad they bothered to change it.
It’s kind of surreal to think that the series is quickly coming to an end. This is one of my favorite parts, but to be fair, any Part after Part 3 are amazing in their own way in the whole Stand deal. I can only hope for Vento Aureo’s announcement to happen around the Spring and maybe air next Fall.

To my exact fears, the panel I so wanted to see animated turned out to be a disappointment. Not a complete disappointment because the act itself is cool as all hell but it just looked wonky as hell. The entire scene with Kira talking to the girl after blowing up her boyfriend looked so off but just the context of that scene enough didn’t completely make me hate it since it’s a damn cool scene anyway. Whereas I didn’t really need to review Part 3’s adaptation all that much, Part 4’s review might just be more than praises being thrown out.
But to be fair, this is what modern day Bluray releases are for so maybe there’s something better coming along.

As suspected, it seems that we’ll be continuing through the Cheap Trick arc for one more episode. Coupled with that, it seems that we’ll be moving straight along Hayato’s little mini-arc, that directly leads us to the final arc, in the back. This episode once again showcased extremely noticeable dips in quality such as Rohan flailing around to get Cheap Trick off of him and Terunosuke’s attempts to ward off Josuke after Yuuya frees the latter. Here’s hoping for the final arcs to look decent, especially my favorite panel spread in the entire part.
I’ll be sure to keep my hopes mediated though.

We conclude the Highway Star fight as well as getting the opening scenes of Stray Cat.
I will have to say, that I wasn’t completely impressed with the episode for a few reasons, they’re mostly nitpicks. I mentioned before that a lack of the subtle panels and scenes in the previous episodes were being more apparent. Overall, the episode was great, no doubts about that but one of my single-favorite panels in the series didn’t really get all that great of an transition on screen. I realize that it’s quite the big scene to adapt but I feel like the people at DPro have been able to replicate other, more famous panels quite well so it would be an understatement that I felt a disappointed. Hell, the panel I’m talking about is in the first opening during the flurry of panels. Other than that however, it was still enjoyable.
