Despite everything that was going right, there were some slight choices in this episode that I felt weakened the overall experience of my favorite fight in this part. These points occurred at the very end of the fight where 1. Pesci’s attempts to ruse Buccellati having him focus on him trying to smash the turtle the ground while he actually went inside it to kill the rest of the crew was cut out. I feel that undermines Pesci’s development as with the whole “I’ll kill them” mindset Prosciutto was trying to get across doesn’t reach fruition as Pesci tries to bait Buccellati into thinking his goal was to kill the turtle instead of the rest of the squad. The second and last issue was that Yuuichi Nakamura’s ARIARIARIARI didn’t come off too great, which is a shame because his Arrivederci was pretty fantastic.
Prosciutto’s got some really animated hands huh
I’m very pleased with how these episodes are going to portray my favorite fight in the manga for this part. I do have one thing to say other than Prosciutto’s excessive hand-movements but the voice-acting quality for the shouting from the villains, especially Prosciutto here and Illuso from a few weeks ago. Prosciutto’s voice, while absolutely freaking fantastic in 99% of his scenes had his yelling scene in the final moments of this episode be a bit lacking and the same goes for Illuso during the last part of his fight where his yelling felt really dry.
It’s time for what is perhaps my favorite fight in Jojo
Well, at least we’re setting up for it. I’ve shared my passion for fights on trains be it in any medium but what makes this stand fight special to me is that Prosciutto and Pesci probably go through the most amount of development a Jojo mook villain can go through. Given the rough pace of these episodes, I would say this fight will go for at least two more episodes.
David Pro pulling out all the stops introducing the rest of the Assassination squad early. I didn’t expect this fight to go on for another episode but with that extended flashback, I really can’t complain. Hell, you can even recognize the silhouette of the guy who killed the assassination squad members. Anyone else recognize Bakugo’s voice coming out of Ghihaccio? Oddly fitting.
I don’t think I can say that for Narancia’s voice though honestly, his voice is still the most contentious out of me. I think the ASB voice nailed that tone so goddamn perfectly that hearing Deku’s voice trying to be a little gangsta-shit like Narancia isn’t working out at all for me yet.
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. Even Nero showed up at the back with Melone and Ghihaccio in tow. Makes sense for Pesci to not be around since Prosciutto is the getting the logistics for now. I cannot wait for that Grateful Dead fight, man.
Also, I imagined Pericolo’s voice to be a bit lighter than but this works way better.
