Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 24

Heart Attack, Part 2


Just when it was thought the episode which focused on Koichi and Yukako packed alot into its running time this episode comes along. This is another one which goes into the credits and again it’s in an effort to not only wrap up the story but give it a conclusion no one saw coming. As long as you don’t read the manga of course.

Picking up where the last one left off, Koichi finds himself coming face to face with Kira, who isn’t at all happy about the fact he has to come in person to settle things. Again, he talks about how everything is an inconvenience to him and he just wants to live his life without the hassles of those around him. Also he wants to kill people and keep a ladies hand like a wife. This guy was already demented but this episode as he gives the heroes a once over helps to prove just how troubled he is.

The battle between Kira and the rest of the team is the best part of the episode. The damage Kira is able to inflict on them and vice versa will leave people gasping in shock over what he does. We often forget with Josuke’s ability to heal people, many individuals can get injured in ways not previously thought possible. Unfortunately there are some things even he can’t fix.

This episode leaves you with a feeling of intensity, like riding a rollercoaster. It helps to remind us all why we love the Jojo series so much. Hopefully the rest of the episodes of the season will be at this caliber or at least have this level of intensity because its hard to go back to comedy after what just happened.

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