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.

And the QUALITY dips in.
As the final battle actually begins, we get our fair share of good shots between some really poor looking ones. Another spread-panel that I really loved got simplified to a single shot again but oh well. This isn’t something I didn’t expect and I honestly expected worse but some of the far-away shots definitely look way too silly. Other than that, the voice acting and the fight sequences generally looked pretty decent which is a good thing because decent becomes great once the BDs hit, I hope.
Anyway, we have two more episodes to go and I better see my Part 5 lead-off with Koichi

So far so good. The finale has yet to reach any scenes of serious awkwardness in its visual quality for me to really complain on anything about. This week’s intro was also radically changed to fit the Bites the Dust saga with varying amounts of time fuckery, music distortion, and utilizing the final chorus from the full version of Great Days. I personally wouldn’t have minded something a bit more simpler to listen to but I’m glad they bothered to change it.
It’s kind of surreal to think that the series is quickly coming to an end. This is one of my favorite parts, but to be fair, any Part after Part 3 are amazing in their own way in the whole Stand deal. I can only hope for Vento Aureo’s announcement to happen around the Spring and maybe air next Fall.

Something unexpected that I praise DavidPro for trying to pull off. Last time, I mentioned how we only had a few fights and episodes left and I didn’t expect them to combine not two but THREE fights involving Supefly, Enigma, and Cheap Trick taking place all at the same time. I’m pretty surprised and I completely approve since I’d rather we hurry with these things and get to the finale, even if the implications of it looking lackluster is pretty high. Hope for the best, expect the worst I guess

With the amount of Chapters we have to cover, DPro is understandably merging a few chapters but also cutting a few small parts out. We’re getting Mikitaka’s little arc with Highway Star which is pretty funny since we’ll get Josuke and Rohan again immediately after the latter burns down the former’s abode. We got a new opening starting from this episode and I’ll speak of it after the episode recap.

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

It’s surprising to think how we only have a few more episodes left of Part 4. That announcement for Part 5 can’t come soon enough. I also hear that we might get a new opening around the 30th of this month too so I can’t wait for that. Another stellar episode that went through Atom Heart Father quite fast and RPS Boy for next week will quickly move us to the much awaited Highway Star fight.
