Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 32 & 33


July 15th (Thurs), Part 2

This episode has a lot going on all at once and really helps to accelerate the main story. First off, Josuke has to deal with taking on Superfly. It’s once again handled thanks to a creative use of Shining Diamond’s healing abilities. Also, despite being a very violent enemy, the team lets him go with just a warning. Apparently, you have to maliciously kill someone to earn death in this anime. At least at the hands of one of the protagonists.

Elsewhere, Rohan thinks something’s not right with the architect, Masazo Kinoto who goes to extreme measures to make sure no one sees his back. Measures such as ascending the stairs with a crab walk. When someone is willing to go to such lengths to prevent you from looking at their back, you can’t help blame Rohan from being a bit curious.

Once Josuke realizes he needs to hurry if he wants to find Koichi, he decides to call upon a former enemy for help. Enter Yuya Fungami and his intense sense of smell who are brought into the picture to help track the kidnapper down. They soon find him but find he’s much more than they can handle.

This episode is a great bit of action without giving much away about what is going on. The mystery behind Masazo and the kidnapper keeps the watcher glued to their set and curious about what will happen next.


July 15th (Thurs), Part 3

A part three? When this series has gone to a part three in the storyline it can only mean one thing: the battle is truly intense and the heroes are being pushed to their limits. Picking up right where the previous episode ended, things get worse for our heroes very quickly. First off Rohan finds Masazo was a Stand user but even he didn’t know it. The Stand, Cheap Trap, is a being which is totally independent and exists by clinging to the back of his opponents. It hasn’t displayed many other powers other than simply whispering into Rohan’s ear over and over. Though it’s not hard to see how such behavior would get annoying.

The real showstealer this episode comes with Yuya and his decision to help Josuke fight Miyamoto. Instead of simply letting Miyamoto get away he instead decides to step up and tries to save the day. It becomes surprising sometimes with Shonen series when it comes to reformed characters. Just when you think they will never make a turn around they do something which makes you actually feel for them and are glad they are truly try to fight for justice.

The preview for the next one shows there will be a part four. This is a battle which is truly pushing the team to the edge. Will the team be able to make it out of this one alive or will

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