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.

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.

Two more weeks until the Gang Star train leaves its station.
We get out first proper enemy stand fight next week as this week only served to start the fight with Polpo’s Stand where we’ll get its conclusion next week. I imagine most fights will end up this way since unlike Part 3 and 4, there’s not too many one-off fights and Part 5 has the most amount of action-packed fights in the series so we won’t be all too bored when the combat kicks up a fair notch a lot earlier than before.
One other thing I definitely need to mention is the stellar work DavidPro was able to put into the first two episodes. Not only were the visuals spot on but the added scenes with Giorno’s motivations definitely do a bit better to portray his character has his lack of characterization during the middle parts of the series is a frequent complaint for the part. I can’t wait to see what else they add.
