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

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.

Without a shadow of doubt, this episode delivered all of the manga’s great scenes with excellent music choice, voice acting, and impressive animation. A perfect way to kick off the 2nd half of the series with Kira’s escape and identity swap with our apparent loser, Kawajiri Kosaku. From the looks of it, Atom Heart Father is only one episode too so we’ll be back with Kira before you even know it.
Let’s get to this

Completely forgot about Shigechi’s episode due to being sick and there’s no better time to have a dual episode recap when we have two of Shigechi’s episodes to cover. Let’s get straight to it so I can get back to getting the other series recaps in. For me, I never liked Shigechi all that much and basically treated him the same as his popular nickname implies, a Dodoria. This arc was special to me because we get so much Josuke and Okuyasu moments and faces and that’s basically what all my screencaps are for this episode.

It don’t matter.
I don’t care if I have one more series review to do, I’m a week late but I’m also a week late in talking about this new opening. I can’t tell you hype I got when I first saw it. The music is completely different from what we’ve previously got with other Jojo openings. Anyway, an in-depth breakdown will take place after I talk about this episode.
