Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Season 4: Episode 5

The Nijimura Brothers part 3

After the intense battle of the previous episode this one feels much slower. It’s not bad just a major shift in tone. The backstories of The Nijimura brothers are laid and the reason why Keicho thought the best course of action to deal with a personal problem was to use the magical bow and arrow to hopefully find a powerful Stand who could fix his problems. Unfortunately, superpowers never fix problems the way people hope they will.

It’s revealed the Nijimura brothers are tied to Dio who is revealed to have planned far ahead more than anyone originally thought. With a history of brutal methods and a possessing a wide network of connections and resources, it’s easy to see why many see Dio as one of the greatest villains in anime. Also, a new Stand appears (with a distinct musical reference) named Red Hot Chili Pepper who posses incredible electrical abilities. Whoever the Stand belongs to may be the one actually pulling the strings from here on in the series.

This season is starting to feel more bottled than previous ones. Instead of eventually expanding out and journeying to all the different corners of the world as the cast battles the forces of Dio or the pillar men, it’s starting to look like the entire season will be set in town of Morioh. It will be interesting to see how the events will keep them in the town and how the tension will ramp up from here. For now though, Josuke and Jotaro will get help from Koichi and Okuyasu to fight against the owner of Red Hot Chili Pepper.

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