THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------

Yukako is love, Yukako is life. The presentation really nails the creepy stalker vibe she is giving off and her VA is doing a good job.
We are also treated to a new, techno-heavy remix of the opening, enjoyed it a lot personally.

Fun fact: The animation director for this episode also directed "The Lovers" in Stardust Crusaders iirc. Quite fitting.

Nice, glad to see Yukako this episode for her arc after the cameo.

Glad to see that they adapted her brief insane moments well, same with her Love Deluxe Stand. What an obsessive crush on Koichi L

I didn't expect Yukako to have that kind of voice but I still think it's great. But WHY THE HECK DID THEY CHANGE THE OP TO THE EDM VERSION, I don't like it at all ;( still very good episode

Anyway this might be kind of off topic, but has anyone noticed that there aren't any sound effects on the screen anymore, like in the manga and the previous seasons (besides Echoes). I wonder why

The other way around, Yukako is older than Palm. Yukako appears in 1992 and Palm in 2004

Wow Koichi, someone confessed her feelings and you're already having dreams like that!! Really, "No Dignity"!!



But damn that was some freak-show of an episode! Glad they're doing it right. Also no ending song to squeeze in more contents for a tight 39 episode series.

I love the use of the EDM Arrange version of the opening song.

This is a long shot from me and I know it might sound ridiculous, but maybe because of the nature of Echoes' powers they don't want people to confuse stylistic SFX with actual Echoes SFX.

This episode introduces a very important concept in Jojo, the unwritten rule of Fate that stand users are attracted to each other.
I don't like the new remix of the opening song, I prefered the old one
Just when you thought Okuyasu did some cool shit, it appears that he still fucked up.

Why did I read this in Duwang?

Never noticed that Palm is inspired by Yukako, just like Hisoka's character design is inspired by Dio.

They're still there - they just appear a lot more briefly.

Once again DP prove that they are the perfect studio for Jojo, they really nail yukako creepiness, especially that window scene. I knew Yukako will appear but it still caught me off guard.

I didn't dislike her, that's for sure. I actually did like her when she first appeared but then she kind of turned meh for me. Though I did like her ability, really cool. Then again most of the abilities in P4 have been awesome and waaaay more interesting and unique compared to Stardust Crusaders.

One of the best episodes imo. They really nailed Yukako's craziness and creepiness plus Okuyasu's and Josuke's reactions were on point. Really loved it, can't wait for the next part. Also glad they kept that Prince part.

Wow Yukako is reving up to make Yuno Gasai look modest and normal at this rate.

And the timing of the Prince question in this episode, them feels.

Oh boi, I'm gonna love this mini arc: Yukako's crazy antics are hilariously creepy, and even got me genuinely wishing from the bottom of my heart that Koichi would get out of this mess in one piece.

Not a fan of the remixed version of the OP, however: it ain't bad by any means, but I just think the funky version is miles better. I do commend DP for trying out new things and not staying in their comfort zone though, and I would actually be glad if we got more different remixes in the future.

Okuyasu and Josuke were perfect, as usual: you gotta love these two.

Yukako's VA nailed the role this week; from sweet enough to give you diabetes to creepy AF by the end of the episode seamlessly. Can't wait for next week :-D .

Oh also obligatory joke about theft and no dignity and feelings felt deeply

This was my favorite episode of the season so far. I laughed so hard, Yukako is a perfect creepy/hilarious stalker girl. I'll admit I have a bit of a crush on her regardless of how crazy she is though. Very timely Prince reference in this episode as well, rip. Poor Koichi!
10/10 episode, looking forward to next week.

I loled when I heard Mamiko Noto voicing Yukako, that was unexpected, but her voice acting is perfect here, she really protrayed Yukako's crazy personality well. About Yukako, she is a crazy bitch, but a greato crazy bitch. Yukako is confirmed best girl.

The parts of Okuyasu and Josuke were fucking hilarious, especially the ones where they suggest Koichi that he should become a loser to make Yukako destest him. Too bad the plan backfired.

Interesting that thing Hazamada said about Stand users attracting between each others...

Btw, I should be horrified, but this scene really made me laugh hard:



Not a big fan of the new version of the opening, though.

I like this version of the opening.
I never really cared for this mini-arc (although Yukako is one of my favorite female characters in JoJo) but it was well-adpated.

The episode was about Yukako but it was Okyuasu who made it enjoyable to me. The dude is just pure awesome xD

I legitimately want to watch a show just with Okyuasu and Josuke just hanging around, chillin and getting themselves into unique situations.

Liked the remix OP, I like the vocals more anyway.

Oh, must have remembered wrong. I remember thinking it was too long in the manga, probably because I didn't enjoy it.
