I think I mentioned before that I had some issues with the voice actors being changed from what I was used to hearing in Jojo All Star Battle. I had no issues with Sugiyama Buccellati, Akabane Mista, Sanpei Narancia, Kusunoki Abbacchio, or Hisafumi Fugo. This week I was reminded that Ono’s Giorno is indeed superior to Namikawa’s with the legendary 7-page Muda barrage was delivered with a vengeance. I always had a problem with Namikawa’s Muda’s especially but Ono’s Mudas were on point since Episode 2 and his WRYYYYYYYY is probably the best it will ever be.
Picking up from before, let’s not waste any time.
Despite the latter half of Part 5 not being as memorable as the first, I recently remembered the fact that in the earlier drafts of Part 5, Fugo was supposed to return as an enemy. Cioccolata and Green Day here resemble Fugo and his Purple Haze but apparently a real-life betrayal in Araki’s life influenced him so hard that he couldn’t go through with Fugo’s ultimatum against his former crew. Looking at what Green Day does again in color and motion, I definitely see the vestiges of what could have been Fugo’s fight.
We return after the recap episode. That makes like what, 4?
Despite my efforts to not be lazy, I was unable to get this out before the new episode dropped. I thought about merging it but I feel that the real meat of the fight will happen next week so expect another post after this covering episode 30. Anyways, it’s mostly exposition and we’ll get to the action right quick after this.
