Let’s go eat some Italian food
In an episode of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure which so over the top in a way only anime could deliver, Okuyasu and Josuke eat at an Italian restaurant. Wait! Before writing this episode off as filler know this is one of the most entertaining and comical episodes of the series which comes from the simple act of eating at a restaurant. You are guaranteed to laugh.
What makes this particular concept so memorable? Over the top violence mixed with insane comical reactions. Sadly it’s impossible to talk about the episode without giving away too many spoilers. Just know it’s funny and if give it a watch you won’t be disappointed.
If this episode doesn’t catch your fancy don’t fret, the next episode is called Chili Pepper, which will finally have the return of the main story and feature much more intrigue. Right?
Chili Pepper Part 1
So much for intrigue. In one of the slowest moments of the entire show, Chili Pepper returns to threaten people, discovers Joseph Joestar is coming to town, and tricks the team into helping him to escape. This is all which happens in the course of the episode and the entire thing feels very slow. There is a bit of violence in there which makes the episode a bit more enjoyable but only for a moment.
The sad aspect is Okuyasu is finally able to confront Chili Pepper during the episode to try and get some revenge on him for killing his brother. Instead of one of those intense revenge battles, it’s one where there is too much talking between opponents and a group takes far too long to walk closer to aid in the fight. They weren’t fighting on the other side of town guys, they were fighting like 30 feet away from you. You could have caught up if you had done a light jog.
Hopefully, the next episode will be a bit more action packed and make up for the fact the return of the only major villain we’ve had all season was kind of a let down.
