Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episode 34

July 15th (Thurs) Part 4


This episode starts with one intense moment and moves into another with little time to take a breath. It’s episodes like this which help to remind the audience why they put up with the generic villain of the week Stands which can show up now and again. Eventually you get moments of so much spectacle, you don’t want to turn away.

First up Rohan has to deal with Cheap Trap, who will kill him if anyone sees his back. It’s also revealed Cheap Trap’s only ability is to talk but apparently this doesn’t mean he’s simply limited to communicating with humans. Rohan soon finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place with little hope of surviving without some kind of back up.

Though the first part of this episode is good, the second half really takes off. Kira is unable to handle his psychotic nature to kill and decides he must find relief. Unfortunately, he’s not aware Hayato, the son of the man he is impersonating is watching and recording his every movement. What follows are some of the most fierce scenes of pressure ever as Kira decides to join his son in the bathroom for some family bonding through bathing. It becomes abundantly clear if Hayato doesn’t find a way of getting a hold of Josuke and the other Stand users in the near future, he won’t be around for the finale.

Events in this series keep getting more heightened as it nears its ending. With only five episodes left to go in this arc it’s hard to tell who will make it out alive. As it’s already been shown, it’s not a good idea to get on Kira’s bad side and Hayato has found a way to paint a target on his back. With the next episode title called “Bites the dust, part 1” there is a very good chance Kira is going indulge in his primal urges for murder once more.

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