That hit much harder than I thought it would, damn it. Jojo has a way to get you like that, I swear.

And Trish apparently has unknowingly had Spice Girl for a good deal of her life and I doubt she got hit with an arrow unless she was really young when it happened (but then who would've done it? Pericolo? He was loyal to the Boss and I doubt he planned for Trish to get a Stand).
You're misremembering. You don't necessarily need to be hit by the arrow to gain stand powers. Some people are born with them naturally, like Avdol. Pretty sure Morioh had its share of natural stand users too.

We learned a lot of things in this episode. People should understand why the arrow is so prominent in the OP now. It is the key to defeating King Crimson, according to that mysterious person. And I can finally start calling Diavolo by his name! Not that his name was ever much of a spoiler.

I have a question but it involves potential spoilers. I'll try to keep it as vague as possible but don't click if you're anime only.

Spoiler for spoiler:

Biggest plot twist for me is that Doppio finally got an actual phone.

Man, that's one sadistic doctor. The effects of his Stands sound like influences from horror movies

Fine, an object that resembles a phone more than anything else he has been using so far.

I can't say I was expecting the arrow's to turn out to be a parasitic organism that give only a chosen few special powers but I guess it's as believable as just thinking they're magic .

"Diavolo?" Well, I guess it's a better name then "The Boss." It might just be me, but it gives me some Dio vibes .

I love how after Doppio uses the toy phone, the little girl immediately uses it herself .

JoJo has had some sick and sadistic SOB's for villains before, but Ciocollata might just take the cake. Green Day is like the Grateful Dead turned up to an even more homicidal 11 .

And I'm guessing since the next episode has two names that Secco has a Stand too? Kind of figured .

You know someone is twisted when a filicidal drug dealer thinks they're scum.

The name "Diavolo" means devil in the translations which makes since he is going against the son of Dio (God).

Green Day isn't so much Grateful Dead turned up to 11 as it is Purple Haze, which has always led a lot of people to believe Fugo was supposed to the enemy in this fight and Araki changed his mind. I don't think that's ever been confirmed though.

You know, I kinda like the sheer irony of the copyright-dodge name for Green Day being "Green Tea". In that actual green tea is super healthy whereas Green Day's powers are almost insta-death. I wonder if that was intentional, or if they simply just tried to think of something other than "Day" to attach the word "Green" to, which would still sound similar-ish...

It's funny because right before reading your comment I was thinking this would have been a great enemy for Fugo and a good reason to keep him around, but such is life.

...I mean I saw comments about the subtitles being messed up...

But I did not see that. The subtitles I got were, in fact, the script to Golden Wind episode 30.

Truly the weirdest episode of Fruits Basket yet.

We already knew about it but we got confirmation that Bucciaratti is a zombie. This turns out to be a big advantage in this fight since he's immune to Green Day which only works on living beings.

So is Secco's Stand his body...? It didn't seem like there was any kind of presence around him, and the ED had him in there with all the other enemy Stand's .

Is Secco voiced by Soichiro Hoshi? Kind of sounded like him .

The reason Notorious BIG was so powerful was because of the anger of his user after getting killed? So would it have been more harmless if he had just passed away peacefully ?

I'm not surprised Trish is interested in Buccirati, whether it's just personal interest in him as an individual or a potential romantic interest. He's a very stoic but decisive man who doesn't wear his emotions on his sleeve, so he's a bit of an enigma but a compelling one at the same time. Plus, he's probably the man Trish has interacted with the most in this series, at least in a positive way .

So Buccirati is basically a walking corpse by this point, and doesn't have much longer before his body finally goes out. I guess it's all well and good that he can use that factor to his advantage now, but will Buccirati last long enough for the final fight with Diavolo ?
