And that’s all folks.
And Merry Christmas
Whereas the final Volume of Part 4 (Volume 47) was halved to feature the next Jojo, the way that DP handled the ending to the series really hammered down the feel of the homely town of Morioh. While a few visual hiccups, just a handful, were present, I think the music and the line delivery were at their very best and I can confidently say that the adaptation wasn’t a disappointment. Congratulations David Productions, you’re going 4 for 4.
Will most likely do an overall recap on my thoughts of the adaptation sometime soon.

So after nearly 5 episodes of Kira goodness, we take a break from our chase and move on to the 2nd half of Part 4 proper with the new set of Stand users made by Yoshihiro and the arrow. This week, it’s Rohan’s little bout with Ken and I will say that the quality definitely dipped with how much dedication they gave to Kira and honestly, this “fight” is only exciting in the last 1/3rd of it anyway. I will also note that they didn’t do Josuke’s little dot eyes when he greets Rohan at the start, as well as Rohan’s little cold shoulder to Joseph when they start their conversation.
Anyway, let’s get to JAAAAAAAAAAAANKEN HOI

My faith with David Production has gone far and beyond satisfying my expectations. D.P has seem to have prioritized a majority of good scenes for this episode which more than makes up for how Killer Queen looked up in the far-away shot last week. To make it better, I now see why they tackled Yukako and Cinderella earlier because the conclusion of this episode sent us straight into Sheer Heart Attack, which I can’t wait to see.

One more week til we shift gears properly to match chase.
In many ways, I can see why they would move this episode ahead of Kira’s formal introduction. There was only one “arc” that separated Kira’s introduction to his actual encounter with the main crew so having this little love-story in between didn’t keep the tension up. It’s honestly a change for the better since it’s another week I won’t have to wait to get to Sheer Heart Attack. It also helps to have Shigechi’s character sink in so there’s that.
Anyway, let’s get to Cinderella.

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.

Sho Hayami’s voice got put on Vanilla Ice while Jouji Nakata has Pucci.
I’m sort of angry I guess, Sho Hayami did something divine (no pun intended) with Pucci’s line delivery in ASB and while Jouji Nakata isn’t bad, I just really liked ASB. Oh well
