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

When I first heard his voice in the anime, I thought it was a bit less aggressive than the ASB’s but Konishi’s voice is definitely growing on me now. Of course, it helps that I’m incredibly biased for Konishi but I am liking smooth and aggressive Diavolo than completely angry Diavolo. With his introduction as well as the appearance of Chariot Requiem, the absolute mindfuck half of the final arc begins.

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.

We return after the recap episode. That makes like what, 4?
Despite my efforts to not be lazy, I was unable to get this out before the new episode dropped. I thought about merging it but I feel that the real meat of the fight will happen next week so expect another post after this covering episode 30. Anyways, it’s mostly exposition and we’ll get to the action right quick after this.

I’ll admit, I completely forgot how Notorious BIG was beaten with Spice Girl’s ability and I guess that’s why I forgot, it wasn’t all that exciting. I also definitely thought the Boss was about to kill the cleaning lady too.
I am looking forward to one thing though, Risotto Nero is about to get his time to shine, as well as the Boss making his move. The difference is that the anime has given Risotto so much more screentime and presence than the manga so I imagine they want to do something with him a bit more than what the manga gave him.

You just know if the Jojo crew get on a plane that it’s going to be trouble. Confined space fights for the absolute win, but I can tell you right now that train fights will always be better than airplanes.
If I remember correctly, Part 5 is going to share the same episode count as Part 4 so we’ve got 15 episodes left, with around two fights to go that’s not including this one before we reach the rather lengthy end-game. Oh, and I guess we can’t forget the Rolling Stones epilogue either so we’re not in shortage of episodes to cover all of that.
