JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 3 Review
First things first, we have a proper OP now! Well, we had one since episode 2 but I didn’t review that, so I’m going to talk about it a bit here.
The song is good, though not nearly as catchy as Battle Tendency’s ‘Bloody Stream,’ or Stardust Crusaders’ ‘STAND PROUD.’ It’s something I’m sure will grow on me in time, but I can tell immediately that it doesn’t grab me like the other OP songs did. Still, it’s upbeat, which fits this part of Diamond is Unbreakable. The second part, not so much, but I’m sure David Production will choose a fitting song then.
The animation for the OP is also good, though it lacks the well-known CG from the previous OPs. I did some research and found out that there was an animation group that did the CG before called Kamikaze Douga. For whatever reason, they didn’t work on this OP, and it shows. Does this mean that the OP is bad? Not at all. In fact, David Production’s charm is abundant, with teasers of future characters and events scattered about. There just isn’t any CG. I miss it, but at the end of the day it doesn’t matter too much.
Anyway, episode 3 is entitled The Nijimura Brothers – Part 1.
