Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 29

Highway Go Go, Part 2

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure has made it a point to introduce some fantastic elements, often resulting in fans having to throw logic to the wind and just go with the story they are presented with. There are some moments though where fans can’t help but ask what the original creator was thinking when he decided to use a specific scene or plot device. Case in point: Why are the feet trying to sniff for Josuke? It boggles the mind the more you think about it.

This questionable element aside, this is a great action filled episode. While being pursued by the multiple flying feet of Highway Go Go, Josuke is able to implement some very creative methods of deploying his powers. Using Shining Diamond, he is able to destroy and fixed things in several very imaginative ways throughout the course of trying to elude his pursuer. Back when this element was introduced in the first episode of this arc, it was more than apparent it would be a very entertaining power to behold. The fact it hasn’t lost its appeal after 29 episode just goes to show it was used in an appropriate way so fans wouldn’t become sick of watching it. It just goes to show sometimes less is more.

The next episode looks to pick back up with Kira’s story and what has been transpiring in his new identity. Episodes like this have been entertaining but it’s hard to take as much enjoyment out of it when the greatest enemy the team has faced is still running around able to make anything he touches into a bomb. Really makes the disembodied feet which are trying to suck the life out of a person and can track someone down by smell seem downright silly.

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