I’m pretty sure Formaggio being the introduction to the Assassination Squad led to this fight to be 3 episodes. With how the beginning of fights were bleeding into the ending of other episodes, I fully expected Illuso to actually show up when the select trio were assigned to go to Pompeii
Have to give to Formaggio’s seiyuu, his work was damn impressive given that he’s such a minor villain in the grand scheme of things. His Little Feet call-outs were excellent.

The deductive ability of Jojo’s mook villains are really something to be noticed.
I imagined we’d get the Assassination squad to be introduced next week but damn, they went ahead and gave us a preview of all them this week.

Well I almost called it with how they were going to show off Buccellati’s crew but they only lasted a couple second in stills.
Anyway, I’m just happy Polpo is done and dealt with and now we can get onto the real meat of the story. There a bit too many far-away blank faces that I’m not particularly fond of but with animation of this quality, I can’t complain yet because Black Sabbath is hardly a demanding fight to begin with. The sequencing of the final scene was a bit different but nothing to complain about. It would be an understatement to say that I’m really excited for next week for the beginning of Soft Machine.
Anyways, yeah, I’ve forgotten how Requiem stands work but I wonder why that arrow pierce didn’t affect Giorno at all.
