They did a good job depicting how King Crimson works. I think they made it fairly easy to understand, all things considered. It really is a nearly invincible stand.

The team has been trying to survive the traitors' attacks all this time, only to turn traitors themselves and have to fight off subordinates loyal to the boss now. Their trouble never end

So I am guessing that Bucharatti has become some sort of zombie due to Gold Experience. Boy are they going to be sad when they find out.

From a logistical point of view, it makes sense to portray King Crimson as a slowmo rather than many-frames-at-once as shown in the manga. Shit would have been a nightmare for the animators at David Prod.

King Crimson's ability kind of reminds me of The World, just instead of stopping time it takes the user and individuals in it's range outside of ongoing time .

The Boss seemed to be targetting Trish because of the fact that she is his daughter. Is that because something about her holds the key to his identity? Or maybe it pertains to her Stand ?

So what the heck is going on with Bruno after Giorno healed him? One second it seems like he's dead, the next he's alive, but then his body starts acting weird. Even Giorno isn't sure what happened. Is it something about King Crimson that effected Gold Experience's ability or had an adverse reaction on Bruno's body aftewards? Maybe Gold Experience's "healing" doesn't work quite the way Giorno thinks it does ?

I'm kind of surprised the Team was so resistant to joining up with Bruno, since I imagined they were all absolutely loyal to him by this point, but it makes sense that they would have to take a minute to consider joining what was basically a suicide mission. Especially when they just got done killing off people in the same position they would be entering in .

Well, at least Fugo points out how little interaction and relationship development the group has actually had with Trish by this point .

So this is the last we're going to see of Fugo? No showing of him ruminating on his decision or a last-minute return to the group to help them and make up for leaving? That's kind of a bummer. I thought Fugo was actually pretty interesting and was looking forward to seeing more of him with the group, and Purple Haze was a really cool looking Stand. Although I guess it makes sense that the logical and "smart" one of the team would be the one who didn't succumb to sentimentality .

He said in this very episode that he could feel she was his daughter, and that the same most likely applied to her, meaning she could find out his identity. She can basically act as a radar of sort to pinpoint him.

As for Fugo, the most accepted theory is that he was removed from the story by Araki because he made the mistake of making Purple Haze too strong. With Giorno able to create a vaccine, Fugo could just spam Purple Haze without any worry and one shot most enemies.

In Mista's case, some Redditors believed that Mista was committed to siding with Bruno from the beginning, but waited for someone else to join first due to his issue with the number 4.

There's another reason for this (it involved a dropped plan for this part), but I do agree that Fugo staying behind was the result of it being hard for Araki to write any additional fights involving Purple Haze.

Kind of reminds me of how the Joestars and Dio in Jonathan's body could kind of sense each other .

Would explain why he was the only member of the team who seemed to feel pretty gung ho about it .

That makes sense. Really, the only downside to Purple Haze seems to be that it's a berserker and not easy to control, but if Giorno can just cure anybody then it's probably not much of an issue...

I was kind of waiting for Fugo to jump on board, but wow...I guess he really isn't. Does he just disappear from the story or get killed? Honestly I'd probably join the suicide mission at that point. If everyone else went on board what are the odds the Boss wouldn't just kill off someone like Fugo just in case something about the Boss' stand was said and to tie up loose ends?

But I do get the in and out of story reasoning. Purple Haze is kind of hard to work around. Kind of reflected in the fact that Fugo really only got the one fight. And it sort of makes sense that a logical person wouldn't just join up on this crazy move. And hey you can still sort of respect him since he really struggled with that.

So maybe I got ahead of myself with Buccellati although he does seem doomed to leave the stage sooner or later. If he is essentially zombified then he can probably only keep this up for a little longer. But in a sense he kind of needs to live past his apparent death. Much as Giorno has been handy and made a mark on the group, he's not that trusted. If he just took Trish and left with her then I don't think anyone would follow. Maybe Mista. While I think many of them would be angry about Buccellati's death not sure they'd rally the fight to avenge him right away. Once they are already on the run and then Buccellati more clearly dies then sure why not. No turning back now .

King Crimson does look pretty tough. Yet another final boss stand that involves time manipulation. To be fair...time powers are pretty OP. Kind of wonder how King Crimson vs Star Platinum would go...

Honestly, for a second I thought King Crimson was going to gut Fugo from behind while he was staring away at the boat .

If I understand the mechanics of King Crimson correctly...potentially Boss would be able to move even during The World? Or maybe they'd cancel each other out ?

From the way King Crimson is usually explained he would be toast since he could never hurt Dio and would have to dodge every activation of The World perfectly so Dio could just wear him down.

Too many frames to notice big in the opening but the song was awesome. Worth the wait.

Also, poor Narancia guys.

Not a fan of the new OP and ED. They may grow on me over time. "Modern Crusaders" seems appropriate, although they're not modern anymore (but they are compared to the previous Crusaders, which is the point)

Talking head's abilities were inconsistent. It's supposed to only affect Narancia's tongue (as evidenced by all the stuff Narancia did to save the others) yet it made his hand point to the bathroom.

They need to stop hiring some random person on the streets to sing the OP.

I was pretty hyped for the new Opening, but I have to say, overall, I was kind of underwhelmed. I mean, it's not bad, there are some cool visuals in there, but it just doesn't get me as excited or as pumped as most JoJo Openings do. I'd even go as far as to say it might be my least favorite JoJo opening .

I'm kind of surprised they kept Fugo in the Opening, to be honest. But I guess if they were going to cover all the top moments of the previous half, they had to include him .

At least taking the Opening at face-value we've got some neat stuff to look forward too, like whatever's going on with the last member of the Assasination team, Trish unlocking her Stand (which seems to be a brawler-type), Giorno and Trish with white hair (?), and Giorno's showdown with the Boss. Also looks like the arrow is going to come back to the forefront .

Man, I already kind of miss Fugo. The group just looks off without him around to complete the six-man band, and I miss his and Narancia's banter. Ah well, I guess Trish is going to make up for his loss .

I know the guy in the white suit was kind of a tool, but I don't think he deserved all that abuse from our "heroes" when he had nothing to do with the Boss. And I think Abbachio knew he wasn't an Enemy Stand User, he just wanted to unload on somebody .

It's nice to see that Trish has the guts and drive to be a JoJo protagonist .

I thought for a second that Gold Experience had once again messed up with Narancia's weirdness, but of course it's an Enemy Stand User .

Tiziano and Squalo sure seem pretty...close, and given some of the other homoerotic subtext this season, I'm more liable to assume that's the case here. Although is it just me, or does Kenjiro Tsuda seem to voice a lot of homosexual characters? Maybe I'm just projecting because he voiced Fire Emblem and is also voicing the gay Master in Domestic Girlfriend, but it seems like a trend.

Figures Giorno would figure out what was going on, although too late to help himself .

I actually think I like the new Ending more then the last one. The visual of the heroes' Stands standing over all the defeated Enemy Stands (and a kneeling Purple Haze) is a pretty cool visual .
