JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 23 and Episode 24 Review

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.

Rohan Kishibe’s Adventure

I have a new computer! My old one was getting really slow (I couldn’t even play Diablo III on it reliably) so I finally upgraded. Now that everything is set up on it, I can get to reviewing the most recent JoJo episode. 🙂

Recap/Review: I was pretty disappointed with how inconsistent the animation was in the Ratt episode (episode 16), and so I had some reservations about this one before starting to watch it. This episode is important to the overarching plot of Diamond is Unbreakable, so I wanted the animation to be good, at the very least.

Thankfully, I discovered that the Ratt episode was under the supervision of a different animation director than usual, so that kind of explained a lot. The same animation director worked on the DIO fight episodes from Stardust Crusaders, which were also pretty inconsistent! The more you know, right?

Episode 17, I believe, was done by the ‘regular’ director, so it’s kind of like night and day in regards to quality versus the Ratt episode.

Koichi Hirose (Echoes) or Koichi Hirose (Reverb)

Recap: This episode starts off with Koichi riding his bike. He runs over a bag in the middle of the street by accident, and notices immediately that the bag is bleeding and meowing. He ran over a cat! (This is what happens when you break the fourth wall and tell the viewer about your new bike instead of looking at the road, Koichi.)

A young man is sitting nearby, and he states that he saw what happened.
