Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 30

Cats Love Yoshikage Kira

This one is going to take some explaining. The creature in the picture above is a Stand. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone as most of the weird incidents from this show have been attributed to Stands lately. Except for those times it turned out to be ghosts or aliens because those also happened recently. Still, this is a Stand which came from a cat who was thought to be dead and buried in the backyard of Kira’s new home. Somehow this new unusual being has the power of a Stand but can be seen by regular humans. Again it’s important to remember, it’s Jojo’s BIZARRE Adventure and sometimes logic goes out the window.

The rest of the episode focuses on the Kira’s family life and how everyone in the house is adjusting to him secretly replacing the husband and father whose life he is now using as an alias. Shinobu Kawajiri, his new wife is completely in love with the new change her husband has undergone and keeps constantly flirting with him.

The new son Hayato is much more suspicious. Of course this kid had the entire house wired for surveillance before his father was replaced with a superpowered killing machine so being suspicious is a default setting for him. Hayato is able to discover where his father has hidden Stray Cat and discovers his father is not who claims to be. This is accomplished by Kira monologuing about how he would have to kill Hayato if his secret was ever revealed. For a guy who is so concerned about giving away a single detail right he really shot himself in the foot by deciding to narrate his maniacal thought process out loud.

The tension with the Kawajiri family is delightful every time it is used in the show. With the series reaching its conclusion and Kira’s secret out, the drama will be even more intense as this mother and son may become victims of Kira’s demented methods.

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