REVIEW: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable: Episode 2

Every once in awhile an episode will come along which has the right amount of action, story, and drama which makes it simply perfect. The second episode of Jojo`s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable is one of those rare incidents where a show gets a perfect episode showcasing all these features.

Josuke fights against Angelo, a Stand user who has a grudge against Josuke and his family. Angelo is revealed to be one of the most brutal and demented villains in the series even compared to titular villain Dio Brando. Angelo is able to settle an old score and Josuke at the same time.

The action finds a way to be even more intense than in the first episode. It’s revealed Josuke’s Stand has two weaknesses: He can’t heal himself and He can’t bring back the dead. Luckily he is able to think on his feet and make sure Jotaro doesn’t steal the show.

Just as the show ends, the season’s ending song is finally revealed. In the established trend of using classic English rock songs for the ending, the studio went with Savage Garden’s I want you. It will hit many viewers in the nostalgia bone. This episode is emotional, thrilling, and fun all at once. Keep up the fine work Josuke!

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