Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 21

Yoshikage Kira Just Wants To Live Quietly, Part 1


This episode serves to give a bit more back story of Kira, the individual who has been committing random murders around the town of Morioh. Apparently he is a diligent office worker who makes sure to put the job first. He fits the stereotypical serial killer profile of the kind of person, the neighbors say “He kept to himself a lot” when they are interviewed by the press crimes. He’d be a stand up guy except for the fact he keeps the hand of his last victim around not only like a trophy but talks to it like they are dating. Make no mistake, this guy is crazy and considering the characters who have been featured previously on this show, it says a lot about him.

By Shiguchi’s bad luck he gets ends up getting his bag mixed up with Kira’s which just so happens to have the hand inside. The rest of the episode is fueled by the tension of the idea Shiguchi, Josuke, and Okuyasu are going to find the hand any moment and be disturbed by their discover. It offers just enough drama to keep a person on the edge of their seat for the entire episode.

Kira’s Stand is also revealed for the first time. It’s name is Deadly Queen but if you listen to the japanese audio, you can tell it goes by another name and it’s referencing a very popular song by the rock group Queen. The Stand looks very intimidating and resembles a demon crossed with a kick boxer. Nothing has been revealed about what kind of power it possesses. Given how Kira has been using as a murder weapon it’s safe to say Josuke and his crew are going to have their hands full in part two of this episode.

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