So at first I loaded up by seasonal review mode to talk about Part 5 but I realized that this isn’t the end, in fact, we have an hour long finale coming up for Part 5’s conclusion no doubt covering the Rolling Stones Arc that I mentioned last week. It’ll be nice to see the crew up and moving around instead of just cutting to a shot of Giorno, Mista, and Polnareff being mobsters.
So, where’s my Fugo movie?

Jesus, calm down with the aspirations Narancia.
I realize I failed to discuss the matter of the altered opening and there’s not really much to say other than it’s what I expected and I wasn’t as mesmerized by it since there’s only so much you can do with skipping time and seeing the future. In fact, I thought it would take more distortions then just that one bit near the end.

The final arc enters its first phase as Chariot Requiem rearranges everyone’s souls.
Including the Boss’s own defenses and now everyone has to get in their heads that someone right now has the Boss’s soul inside their bodies. The question is who

A little delayed due to some personal issues. Secco’s fight was a bit more involved than I remember since the most I remember is the Muda Muda page spread.
I think I made the estimate last week but I’m for certain that the series will conclude early July. I better start writing up a wrap-up since the last arc technically starts next week as the absolute clusterfuck of shenanigans involving the arrow will take place.

I think I mentioned before that I had some issues with the voice actors being changed from what I was used to hearing in Jojo All Star Battle. I had no issues with Sugiyama Buccellati, Akabane Mista, Sanpei Narancia, Kusunoki Abbacchio, or Hisafumi Fugo. This week I was reminded that Ono’s Giorno is indeed superior to Namikawa’s with the legendary 7-page Muda barrage was delivered with a vengeance. I always had a problem with Namikawa’s Muda’s especially but Ono’s Mudas were on point since Episode 2 and his WRYYYYYYYY is probably the best it will ever be.

Picking up from before, let’s not waste any time.
Despite the latter half of Part 5 not being as memorable as the first, I recently remembered the fact that in the earlier drafts of Part 5, Fugo was supposed to return as an enemy. Cioccolata and Green Day here resemble Fugo and his Purple Haze but apparently a real-life betrayal in Araki’s life influenced him so hard that he couldn’t go through with Fugo’s ultimatum against his former crew. Looking at what Green Day does again in color and motion, I definitely see the vestiges of what could have been Fugo’s fight.

Ever wonder why the Boss is so fixated on Abbacchio’s abilities?
Remember when Mista was complaining about 4 pieces of cake and Abbacchio took one? That 2nd one was completely David Pro’s works and I praise their decisions, except for one, in making all these small additions to make Part 5 that much more enjoyable. If this episode lets you know one thing, it’s that we’re officially at the part where anyone can potentially die now.
