Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 20

Yukako Yamagishi Dreams of Cinderella

SPOILER ALERT

This episode is all about Yukako finding a way to make things right with Koichi. She meets Aya Tsuji, an aesthetician with a Stand called Cinderella. It has the ability to apply make up which changes a person’s luck and fortune. This allows Yukako to have a date with Koichi and things slowly start to get better. Will it be enough to allow Koichi and Yukako to truly cement themselves in a relationship or has she done something irreversible?

This feels a bit forced. Yes, Koichi and Yukako are the one of cutest couples to come out of the entire Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure series. At the same time it feels like these elements should have built over time, like Koichi realizing he likes her, their kiss, and the love sacrifice he is willing to do at the end. These are the kinds of moments which take other animes there entire run to get around to executing and here it’s done in the course of just a single episode. It’s what can be expected as this is a Shonen series which means the focus tends to be more on action and adventure. It still seems like if they had spaced the story over a two parter it would have felt less stuffed to the brim. They even had to take out the opening and closing to be able to tell the story completely which should be a pretty big sign to show the plot was crowded. At least the fans of the Yukako and Koichi relationship will always have this episode to fall back to remind them the couple they were routing had this special moment.

Enough time has passed between the last chunk of action so hopefully next time things will get back in gear. The team has had enough downtime to catch a breather. Time to finally track down the murderer who is terrorizing the town.

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