Posted by psgels on 26 February 2013 with categories: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

Awww. This show already has an awesome soundtrack, and to think that it has one of the best tracks saved for this episode. This episode was all about Ceasar, and as the episode went on it became pretty clear what was going to happen, but for what they attempted to do, the creators succeeded.

So the death of a major character. Another thing that has set Jojo apart is that really anyone can die, and they once again show this with this episode. It was over the top as usual, and the music really helped. The creators also made his death quick: no dragging on for ages, he was just hit once really badly, and that’s it. He did get to make a very elaborate farewell speech though, but it was well done with all of the symbolism there.

Wham was also a great guy to do it with dragging Ceasar inside the building with weird powers. Byusing them to block the sun they found a new twist to his powers. And it all happened in just one episode. Eat your heart out, Naruto.
Rating: 5.5/8 (Excellent)

    I think this may be my favorite episode thus far, especially the last scene, (Lisa Lisa with her cigarette backwards was such a good emotional touch). This manga has always had a flair for killing off characters quickly, but in this case it felt destined to happen, especially since his father and grandfather both had heroic deaths.

    awesome episode. the budget for this ep looked to be bigger than usual as well. some nice animation.

  3. Aeris DJ says:

    It was great indeed, but the other guy also died, and Lisa Lisa didn’t cry as much for him (she only freaked out a little when she saw the arm). In the case of Naruto, well, they have to squeeze it as much as possible in order for it not to catch the manga. It’s terrible, but that’s how it is. The more it lasts, the more they can milk out.

  4. Silverbeard says:

    You could have given the episode a solid 6/8, psgels.

    Caesar deserves it.

  5. This episode did such a great job at dramatizing Caesar’s death. The flashback and how it made Caesar into the man he was, JoJo and LisaLisa’s reactions; really well structured. Yes it was very hammy but that’s the franchise for you XD

    Joseph’s voice actor did a great job this episode also, can’t get enough of Gintoki, Kyon and now JoJo

  6. Jenanime4eva says:

    I thought this episode was awesome :D. Would have given it 6 or 6.5 out of 8 ;).

  7. gurdlo says:

    to be fair, Naruto didn’t start out with 25 years worth of material

  8. David says:

    So why the 5.5 rating? :/ It was the best scripted, animated and directed episode of the series IMHO

    @Bam: I wasn’t sure if I was going to bother watching the upcoming doctor strange movie. But I hear Mads Mikelson might be in it so I might just see it.
    I heard theres an old run on the comic that was considered Lovecraftian.

    I won’t repeat the same review/exposition about the new mad max as I did a while back but I’ll say this it’ll be hard for me to find another action film this year that fills its slot on my 2015 bit of my favourite movies list. The new fast and the furious, the new mission impossible I could put thoe in its place or maybe hateful eight when that comes out.

    I can recall one instance when I was about 14 or 15 where I used Japanese phrases in English sentences, thought at the time that it was an internet thing to do. One guy on a message board found it strange so I said I was sorry, didn’t know and stopped.

    On a side note Mad Max: Fury Road was definitely a blast; all puns intended. It has an incredibly simple premise and certainly doesn’t revolutionize the action genre but it did revitalize it. I guess it takes a 70 year old man to show the kids how it’s done. All hail the mighty V8!

    Started watching Fate/Zero since I was planning on it and Netflix happen to put it up in their anime lineup. Up to ep04 and so far so good. It manages to have a lot of intrigue for a story I kinda already know th end to. Urobutchi and Nasu are indeed a good team-up and seem to balance eachother out. It’s like he’s the Hanna to Nasu’s Barbera.

    Well as we all know, personal attacks end every argument ever on the internet…and pigs fly, hell has frozen over and Half Life 3 has been released.
    Though to be fair inserting Japanese phrases into English sentences is one of the most annoying things on the planet.

Gangsta. – 08

Some focus on Alex this time around as with the drug out of her system she remembered that she had a younger brother. A pretty startling revelation for her as forgot about him the whole time she was under Barry’s control. It was done well on just how much this shocked her but I must […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 08

Itami continues to be a mystery as he is shown not only to be a ranger but also a member of special forces. Its not really confirmed whether he is a genius in hiding or a slacker who was tossed into high profile positions and got through it with minimum effort. The big part of […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 07

This episode has been a weaker episode than those so far. The opening has gone through a number of changes now that we have reached over the halfway point. Megumi’s part of the opening has been replaced by a shot of her grave, the colourful transition after showing the title is now a series of […]

Gangsta. – 07

Now the past has been mostly revealed, Worick’s friendship with Nicholas has become a more complex thing. Worick seems to see him as a good friend yet resent him for going kill crazy and murdering his whole family. Though the murder of his father looked to be an order he himself made to Nicholas and […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 07

I understand that for an anime adaption some character designs need to be simplified in order for an easier time to keep them in proportion in animation. But while the characters who suffer in this episode because of this are indeed minor characters, its really a shame to see them become something unrecognisable. The two […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 06

Well the story continues on from the flashback, showing Miki first joining the club. Right off the bat the episode pushes to answer the question of Megumi’s existence. It’s a answer that was pretty obvious by this point as the foreshadowing was pretty heavy on this particular detail but this episode makes it crystal clear. […]

Gangsta. – 06

When taking into account the show so far, I find that the quiet character moment stand out far more than the over the top fight scenes with knife wielding psychos on rooftops. The dialogue between characters is much more engaging that two characters jumping around like Bleach Soul Reapers. In particular it great seeing Worick […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 06

Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” is a fairly iconic piece of music in pop culture. So much so that after Apocalypse Now (1979) whenever there is a helicopter assault in any piece of media, it’s practically obligatory to play Ride of the Valkyries. Even just today when finishing Far Cry 3 and had a […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 05

As these episodes go on it really is something to wonder about the matter of Yuki being a hindrance or a help. I have said previously that she does push the group in the right direction but it is still a case where her mentality is dangerous. The group need to come up with excuses […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment. Animation did it as Anime aimed to explore terrontry that cartoons refuse to explore and video games only recently broke away […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks Review – 85/100

For a long time now this adaption has been the dreams of many a Fate fan with many believing it would never come to pass, but now that it is here is it everything that we dreamed? Short answer to this is no, long answer is nearly. I feel this show will have many divided […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia. If you haven’t played Pokemon Red, Blue or Green, then you will not enjoy this one slight bit. This really is made as pure undilluted fanservice for the fans of the first games. […]

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about. I guess that that gives a pretty accurate indication of what I think about this series. Right at the start of Tamayura’s second season, I asked one question: […]
