It’s only been a few months since I watched the last season of JoJo’s Bizarre AdventureSince then, I read the next part of the manga and found it increasingly hard to wait that long before finishing off the anime series. Honestly, I don’t know why I leave these gaps between series when I am keen to carry on watching. I think this is something I need to remedy going forward…

ANYWAY. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable is an adaptation of the fourth part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series; also it is the final anime series that has been produced… for now. I assume that more will be produced eventually, but for now it ends with Diamond Is Unbreakable.

As with the previous parts of the series Diamond Is Unbreakable has a new member of the JoJo family as the central character – this time it is the illegitimate son of the JoJo from Part 2, which makes him the uncle of the JoJo from Part 3. This 4th JoJo is well meaning and outgoing, which makes him a complete contrast to his predecessor.

If you know third part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure then you can pretty much guess what this particular part is going to be about. The mythology of the stands (alter-ego spirits with special powers that are used to fight) continues as follow a new group of powered up individuals as they battle against stand-owners with evil intentions.

The JoJo series has always contained interesting villains. Yoshikage Kira – the villain of this seasons’ second half – might be the most threatening and best realised of all of them so far. Sure, the previous seasons had Dio (an incredibly powerful and vengeful vampire), but he always felt a bit pantomimish at times. Then there is Kira, a serial killer who just wants a peaceful life as he gives in to his uncontrollable urge to kill and dismember women. He’s a scary villain because he actually feels like a real person (albeit with supernatural powers) and I wish there had been a way to have him more involved in the first half of the season…

Still that’s a small glitch in what is an enjoyable supernatural fight series with a good heart and sense of humour. I hope there is a Part 5 soon as I am eager to see where the JoJo anime goes next.
