Let’s go to the Manga Artist’s House, part 2
This episode begins with a new opening and then moves into Koichi’s predicament of still being under the control of Rohan’s Stand. Thought Josuke and Okuyasu are able to realize Koichi is in trouble they find it a bit difficult to actually figure out how to stop him. Can the team come up with a way to take out Rohan’s Heaven’s Door or will they fall under his control as well?
The joke about Josuke’s hair comes into play again. This time it comes along a nice flashback to Josuke’s childhood and where the love for his hairstyle originated. Given the mysterious stranger who saved him looked incredibly like him and was injured like he just got into a fight it could be possible this was himself from the future. Considering all the other crazy occurrences in this show the idea of time travel isn’t such a remote possibility.
By the look of the new opening Rohan is going to be sticking around for a bit. This is good because he was eccentric and could really help to shake up the cast. It’s hard to tell though how his Stand could be used in a combat situation. We’ll have to wait and see it action to find out.
Let’s go hunting
This episode opens on Jotaro and Josuke going on solo adventure. It turns out while Akira Otoshi was in possession of the Bow and Arrow which gives people Stand powers he decided to test it out and shot a rat. The entire episode focuses on the two of them working to take down this super powered rodent.
The rotten, who the show refers to as Bug-Eaten, doesn’t act like previous animals who have Stands like Iggy or Pet Shop. Instead it simply displays advanced reasoning and planning skills which would not be available to any normal creature. The ability of his Stand is disturbing to say the least and needs to be seen to be properly appreciated.
This episode helps to capture the peril the characters face when fighting against other beings with Stands. Although Jotaro is a veteran after his battle with Dio, he was still almost taken out by the rat, had to rely on his Stand’s ability to briefly stop time, and needed Josuke’s help to properly take care of business. It’s a dangerous world but hopefully now they can rest for a bit without having to worry about someone trying to kill them.
