Jesus, calm down with the aspirations Narancia.
I realize I failed to discuss the matter of the altered opening and there’s not really much to say other than it’s what I expected and I wasn’t as mesmerized by it since there’s only so much you can do with skipping time and seeing the future. In fact, I thought it would take more distortions then just that one bit near the end.

The final arc enters its first phase as Chariot Requiem rearranges everyone’s souls.
Including the Boss’s own defenses and now everyone has to get in their heads that someone right now has the Boss’s soul inside their bodies. The question is who

Ever wonder why the Boss is so fixated on Abbacchio’s abilities?
Remember when Mista was complaining about 4 pieces of cake and Abbacchio took one? That 2nd one was completely David Pro’s works and I praise their decisions, except for one, in making all these small additions to make Part 5 that much more enjoyable. If this episode lets you know one thing, it’s that we’re officially at the part where anyone can potentially die now.

Well, they could give Risotto Nero so much.
David Productions have had the good sense to add anime-original content with the benefit of having the hindsight to add after the original manga experience. The Hitman Squad that dominated the first half of Part 5 were definitely the highlights of the part and I’m glad they were given significantly more screentime given that the part’s plot eventually has it so that they end up on the same side in opposing the boss. Too bad no one was alive at that point for that to matter.

I can probably see people being extremely confused as to what this episode covered.
I don’t remember the instant muscle gain but as I’ve said before, the latter half of Vento Aureo is something that I haven’t reread in a long time. Seems that we’ll stick this particular encounter within 1 or 2 more episodes before the next set of fights move us into the final arc. Risotto Nero finally shows up and I can only expect some minor level of preferential treatment before we fully move on.

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.

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.
