Episode 23: Heart Attack, Part 1

Episode 24: Heart Attack, Part 2

I was out of town on vacation last week (and stuck with poor wifi) so I was unable to review episode 23 on time. I’ve decided to write another joint review for two episodes so that I can catch up and be able to write one for episode 25 when it comes out, to keep things on a decent schedule.

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 22 Review

Yoshikage Kira Just Wants to Live Quietly, Part 2

Yoshikage Kira’s secret has been exposed, and the one person to see it is none other than Shigechi. Kira can’t have anyone knowing what he does in his spare time continue to live, so it’s inevitable that he threatens to kill Shigechi immediately. Of course, to adhere to the JoJo trend for this arc, Kira has a Stand; he reveals it at the very end of the previous episode to anything but applause, but the reveal is essentially redone for episode 22.

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 21 Review

Yoshikage Kira Just Wants to Live Quietly, Part 1

I’m trying out yet another format for this review, which is more traditional!

Yoshikage Kira is a strange man. He’s a good worker, and women are very interested in him, but he usually wants to keep to himself. Coworkers describe him as boring, but there has to be something more to his personality than desiring to work. After all, he’s appeared in several episodes (albeit briefly,) which should be proof enough that he has some importance in the Diamond is Unbreakable storyline.

The previous episode (which occurs after this one in the manga, if you recall) was gorgeously animated. An ‘off’ frame couldn’t be spotted, and the stained glass inspired spreads were phenomenal. Seeing that last week really pumped me up for this episode, since I knew this one was overall more important/significant to the plot and, well, why would the animation get worse after it was amazing?

Skoshbox Review August 2016

I’m back to reviewing regular Skoshboxes again! The Dekabox was a lot of fun, but also a lot of food; I couldn’t handle eating all of those Japanese snacks every month, so I’m honestly glad to be returning to the regular size.
