REVIEW: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable: Episode 1

The long running manga series is back again to introduce a new group of characters to go on bizarre adventures. Jotaro, the hero from the previous season returns to meet up with a lost member of the Joestar family. It’s revealed Joseph Joestar, had a love child named Josuke Higashikata which technically makes him Jotaro`s uncle.

Josuke seems like he will be very interesting main character. He is a polite teenager who is often trying to overcome his fears. Just don’t talk about his hair or he will mess you up. His Stand`s ability to repair things after they are broken will allow the show to have absurd levels of carnage and destruction to occur which can be fixed a moment later. In the first episode alone there is a moment where you will be gasping in shock over the action Josuke takes to stop a crime which is fixed moments later thanks to his powers.

In an effort to try to find a way to make this series different from previous seasons of Jojo, the studio decided to make some alterations with the art. The colors used this season are soft pastels. It actually lures you into a false sense of security and makes you think the show will be peaceful but then surprises you on with the level of violence it unleashes.


This season is already set up to be another fascinating story. Josuke and Jotaro will be working together to stop this mysterious Stand user. Given what has happened so far, you can bet things will continue to be bizarre.

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