Review: ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable’: Episodes 17

Rohan Kishibe’s Adventure

When it comes to Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, there are always reminders to expect the unexpected. Just as you think you understand the rules of the show and what can and can’t happen, you get thrown a curveball. The rules go out the window and you scratch your head in confusion wondering what will come next. This is the case with this episode as a new element, ghosts are introduced to the story.

Yes, there are ghosts in this episode. Ghosts who are walking around with the same injuries which killed them in real world. It’s a bit disturbing. In the last few arcs everything magical or out of this world was explained by it dealing with someone’s Stand causing the abnormality to occur. Here though there is just this weird occurrence which the fans have to accept. Still, given the other weird things which happen in this series, the idea of applying rules and logic probably shouldn’t come into play.

Rohan does return this episode and shows how his Stand can be used in a more combative aspect. It shows he has the ability to form his Stand into an actual physical representation, which looks like a little magician complete with cape and a top hat. He will be a welcome addition to the team, especially as the new villain has been revealed. All we know about him is his family name is Kira, he enjoys murder, and she seems to like keeping trophies of his victims which he talks to as if they were still alive. Make no mistake, this guy is creepy. Hopefully, Josuke and his crew will be able to hunt him down and stop in the next episode. Unfortunately, It appears to be a part one of a storyline so it’s obvious whatever they face is going to give them a hard time.

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