JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 6 Review

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.

Okuyasu and Josuke

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 5 Review

Recap:

The episode starts out with a brief recap of episode 4’s end: Keicho gets knocked out by Josuke’s quick thinking, and Okuyasu hears the explosion from outside the house.

After this, the episode begins showing new content. Josuke states that he and Koichi should get out of the house now that they’ve dealt with Keicho, but Koichi shows concern about the bow and arrow. He wants to make sure it’s out of anyone’s hands, so that it doesn’t kill anyone. Josuke agrees after a moment of procrastination, and they head upstairs to find it.

The two protagonists hear some strange noises once they’re in front of the room containing the bow and arrow, so they then wonder how to obtain it safely. After coming up with a plan consisting of Koichi scaring the creature while Josuke grabs the goods, Koichi moves in, but is immediately grabbed by a monstrous, green hand.

Josuke calls out Crazy Diamond and severs the hand, though not intended. It’s not a problem, though, since the creature just grows a new one…

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 3 Review

Where’s episode 2? Read this post to find out why I skipped it.

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.
