Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 31

July 15th (Thurs), Part 1

You’re probably asking yourself why a random scenery shot is the featured image for this review. Believe it or not, a Stand is shown in the picture. Can you find it? It’s name is Superfly, its controller is named Toyohiro Kanedachi, and it has the ability to return whatever damage it receives and turn people into metal statues. It quickly proves to be an intimidating force to be reckoned with. Even the shapeshifting Mikitaka isn’t able to be prepared for the power of Superfly.

The show seems to be moving towards its conclusion. As Josuke and Okuyasu take on Superfly, two other mysterious individuals approach different members of the Josuke’s team. It looks like Koichi and Josuke’s mom have already been abducted by the same individual. You’d think they would at least leave those without powers out of it. Unfortunately when it comes to final battles, no one is safe and everyone a character holds dear can be used against them.

The best part of this episode is how it is starting to get the tension and drama building as this arc of Jojo’s starts to work towards its ending. With the addition of Toyohiro Kanedachi’s Superfly, Stray Cat, the two yet to named assailants, and his father, Kira now has an army which he can use to eradicate Josuke and the gang. From here on fans will have to start worrying about who is going to make it out alive. Given how maniacal Kira can be and how much damage he was able to inflict last time there is a good chance not everyone will survive this season. With any luck though, Josuke will be there in time to heal those who need it but always remember he doesn’t have the ability to repair himself.

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