Rohan hates Josuke THAT much.

Highway Go Go (Highway Star), Part 1

Immediately, this episode begins where the dice game left off. Rohan, very suspicious of Josuke, leaves the table and promptly returns with a magnifying glass. Just what is he up to?

I’m an Alien

So, this is another one of those episodes that kind of hurts me, much like episode 21. It’s for the same reason, too; the animation is very inconsistent. When it’s good, it’s good; when it’s bad, it’s down right awful.

I’ve heard that this episode was outsourced to the same studio that did episode 21, and it really shows. I’m honestly beginning to feel like David Production is the opposite of Toei now, in terms of consistency. Remember how awful the first two seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal looked at times? Diamond is Unbreakable is getting to that point. Now, the thing is that David Production CAN really shine if they have the budget/time/motivation, I know they can, and Toei had to change up a decent amount of the staff to make Sailor Moon Crystal shine.

I honestly don’t know what’s going on with David Production. It’s probably just budgeting issues, but darn if it isn’t really obnoxiously annoying.

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episodes 19 and 20 Review

Episode 19: Shigechi’s Harvest, Part 2

Episode 20: Yukako Yamagishi Dreams of Cinderella

I’m doing something different this time around, as you’ve probably gathered from the title and the fact that I haven’t posted a review for episode 19 yet. Honestly, I’ve been having some health issues and haven’t been up to reviewing this past week, which is part of the reason why I decided to ultimately do a joint review. The other reason is, well, these episodes don’t do as much for me as the next ones will, based off of my knowledge of the manga and my personal tastes.

These recaps will be much shorter than usual, but I’ll be returning to my original format beginning with episode 21.

Shigechi’s Harvest, Part 1

Last episode’s animation and pacing were pretty much spot on, so I was looking forward to seeing if David Production kept it up for this one as well.

Recap/Review: Josuke is broke. Even though Joseph paid him back for what he spent on the invisible baby, he still found a way to drain his savings account… by buying expensive clothes. Oh boy.
