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.

Did they seriously fucking use Tsuda’s voice for Tiziano? This freaking clown? Just when I was thinking how much I would love to hear Tsuda’s voice again after his work with Bruford years back, now I get this?
I’m actually really upset by that. If you remember what I spoke earlier about the latter half of Part 5, I didn’t have too have many good things to say and while the combination of powers is pretty interesting with Clash and Talking Head, I don’t think too many fights really match the intensity of either Grateful Dead/Beach Boy and White Album.

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.

We reach the half-way point where the Boss’s true intentions come to light.
I’ve mentioned many times before that one of the many reasons I looked forward to this adaptation was that a bunch of panels back in the manga were really hard to process and the biggest perpetrator of this was without a doubt King Crimson. It’s been an inside joke for decades on what exactly King Crimson’s powers are and Araki’s initially confusing explanation did that no favors, further so, the shoddy translation work for Part 5 at the start confused people even further. Hopefully now with some moving visuals, less people will be confused.

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.
