I’ll admit, I completely forgot how Notorious BIG was beaten with Spice Girl’s ability and I guess that’s why I forgot, it wasn’t all that exciting. I also definitely thought the Boss was about to kill the cleaning lady too.
I am looking forward to one thing though, Risotto Nero is about to get his time to shine, as well as the Boss making his move. The difference is that the anime has given Risotto so much more screentime and presence than the manga so I imagine they want to do something with him a bit more than what the manga gave him.

You just know if the Jojo crew get on a plane that it’s going to be trouble. Confined space fights for the absolute win, but I can tell you right now that train fights will always be better than airplanes.
If I remember correctly, Part 5 is going to share the same episode count as Part 4 so we’ve got 15 episodes left, with around two fights to go that’s not including this one before we reach the rather lengthy end-game. Oh, and I guess we can’t forget the Rolling Stones epilogue either so we’re not in shortage of episodes to cover all of that.

Every episode and I realize how close we are to the ending. There’s only two more fights to really cover before we get our lengthy final battle which can basically be summarized as two fights to begin with. Actually, no, there’s Nero we need to see too.
Every fight with Mista involves him getting shot with his own bullets while Narancia’s enemies seem to always find a creative use for blood. Then again, Ghihaccio did that too. Anyways, despite me loving the Clash’s abilities, I never did find myself liking this fight all too much, even if this fight is something I have better memory of compared to Oasis and Green Day coming up later.

King Crimson is without a doubt the single-most infamous Stand in Jojo’s history that has elicited more “how does this work” questions in its readers more than anything else, be it joke or legitimate. The black and white panels of the manga didn’t necessarily provide the most comprehensible visuals to explain its powers but I feel that David Pro’s visuals have made it a lot easier to understand now.
But from hence forth, we’re now starting the second half of Part 5, and I’m smelling a new opening for next week.
Continue reading Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure- Vento Aureo Episode 21: So that’s what it does
Now this episode delivered. Whereas the final portions of Beach Boy and Grateful Dead were cut a bit short and undermined the proper development Pesci went through, White Album’s fight was short, sweet, and just as hype. Mista and Giorno’s ability synergy will be showcased again in a later fight but this is probably my preferred fight between the two.
We’re almost 20 episodes in and already nearly past the half-way point and I realize that I personally don’t have too much else to look forward to in Part 5. With Grateful Dead/Beach Boy and White Album animated, only King Crimson’s skip time bullshit is the only thing I got left since the latter half of Part 5 isn’t exactly as strong as the beginning. I’ll still be sticking with it but I hope the anime production staff keeps up the seal of quality that they have been doing so far.

Melone only lasted up to half of the episode.
And the more I hear Ghihaccio talk the happier I am to keep in mind how this is Bakugo’s voice screaming about semantics. I have to say that Vento Aureo is doing an amazing job weaving multiple arcs together and they certainly wasted no time moving past Melone and covering a good half of the White Album fight. While a great fight, it is rather short since we only got one guy to deal with compared to the whopping 3-parter Prosciutto and Pesci got.

I’ll be honest.
Babyface lies between two of my favorite fights in this entire part and I’ve gone back to read those said fights so much that I kind of forgot what Babyface’s fight involved aside from Melone being creepy and using a computer-stand to create a Stand after harassing some poor woman. I forgot its powers were this scary after it came to be.
