Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 25

Heart Father

There are moments where you just want to know how the staff meeting went down to result in the finished product. This episode features the cast fighting against a living instant photo from a camera. This means there had to have been a meeting where the original creator Hirohiko Araki tossed this idea out to his editor and he was given the go ahead to move forward with it. Thanks to this decision this show once again lives up to the bizarre part of its title.

As Kira is working to get used to his new identity, Josuke and the team look into his old life. It’s amazing how much detail they go into how Kira did everything he could to be middle of the road thereby be beyond the suspicion or criticism. He really was a diabolic individual his entire life. His new role of masquerading as the someone else to hide out from Josuke and Jotaro is very suspenseful. It’s impossible to tell how long gone he will decide to suppress his homicidal nature around the wife and child he inherited from the face of the man whose life he stole.

This episode also proved the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kira’s father turns out to be demented and off the deep end as his son. After using his abilities as a ghost to become a photo he starts terrorizing through team time make sure they don’t do anything to mess up his son’s life. Even though he’s fully aware his son is a psychotic killer.

With the addition of Kira’s father and the revelation there is a second bow and arrow which creates Stands, this season just got picked up a notch. Just when things were intense after the last episode, this one proves this show won’t simply play it safe until the end.

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