JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders Episode 44 Review

First Time Review: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders

Episode 44: The Miasma of the Void, Cool (Vanilla) Ice, Part 3

Star Platinum is upset that there are less than ten episodes left.

           Vanilla Ice is the worst. I know I went on about how Terence D’Arby was a menacing guy before, but Vanilla Ice takes everything D’Arby did and amplifies it by a thousand. He’s just that bad.

            I’m not going to spoil anything before the jump because we’re in the serious part of this series now and I really, really don’t want to ruin anyone’s experience by blowing anything before anyone can click away. As I said last review, if you haven’t watched this episode first, please go do that! It’s necessary for the full experience, trust me.

Episode 43: The Miasma of the Void, Cool (Vanilla) Ice, Part 2

            My body is completely prepared for the rest of this season; last episode was pretty much the selling point for me to just be ready for whatever’s going to come. I mean, they’re really, really close to DIO now, so there aren’t going to be any more whimsical, funny moments. As much as I enjoyed the Terence D’Arby episodes, I think they were the last to have any kind of ‘fun.’ I could be wrong, of course, but I just have that feeling.

            Anyway, I don’t like to say too much before the jump here, especially since we’re in Spoiler Territory proper, now. If you’d prefer to experience this story for yourself first, please go watch this episode before reading my recap/review. Trust me, it’s more impactful that way.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders Episode 39

First Time Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders

Episode 39 – The Guardian of Hell, Pet Shop, part 2.

            Since Episode 38 was pretty intense, and I’m guessing that seeing the conclusion to the Pet Shop arc is at the top of everyone’s list (if not, it should be!) I’m going to skip the middleman and dive right in, head first, into this review. Let’s go!

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders Episode 38

First Time Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders

Episode 38 – The Guardian of Hell, Pet Shop, part 1.

            Now that we’re done with Hol Horse and Boingo, I’m going to go ahead and assume that from here on out, Stardust Crusaders will primarily focus on serious storyline, as opposed to humorous fluff. Not that I disliked the last two episodes or anything, because I didn’t, but I can safely say that I’m ready for the plot to continue.
