Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 18

Shigechi’s Harvest, part 1

Josuke and Okuyasu find themselves chasing after an army of tiny Stands which are gathering money. They find they all belong to a boy named Shigekiyo Yangu (Shigechi for short). He’s a good natured simple minded person much like Majin Buu from Dragonball Z but just like Buu, it appears as if he may have a dark side to him. Josuke and Okuyasu see the potential of his abilities and how socially challenged he is and try to see if they can’t help him grow a bit as a character and maybe take full advantage of Shigechi’s Stand.

It’s a fun episode and does offer a bit of a good moral lesson. Even though Josuke and Okuyasu are using Shigechi for his Stand, they genuinely are attempting to find a way to help him be more outgoing and sociable by interacting with him. Well, at least this is Josuke’s idea behind it which really goes to show he is the more mature individual out of his little group and the one who is ready to step up and be an adult when the time comes. Unfortunately, Shigekiyo has not really learned how to be mature from his time with the two of them and it looks like he’s going to have trouble sharing with others.

The episode is entertaining, especially near the end but it’s not without its hints something big is about to happen. Such as the talk of the mysterious murder still at large and Koichi being followed by Yamagishi again. Has she learned her lesson or does she want to try and keep him as her own again? Will the murder come out in the next episode or will it just focus more on Shigechi? Only time will tell.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable is streaming on Crunchyroll.
