THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was fun, especially with the highway arc.

We got Rohan in this too, one of my favorite characters in the series. Rohan's bike also got style and for the most parts, I liked the thrilling feel of the episode. Exciting/5.

Scary.

I'm glad they didn't skipped Hayato's scene. He is one of my favourite characters in the series with Shigechi.

Can't wait to see more of him.

Poor Rohan.

I mean, he kind of deserved getting his house burned down, but still.

I hate the visual changes in the OP. When the light shines on the characters, they turn around, but it looks weird af, and they replaced Kira turning around slowly and menacingly into him just showing off Killer Queen. But the way they display the stands at the end looked pretty good.

Lol, Poor Rohan lost his house XD

I've been waiting for "DAGA KOTOWARU" for so fucking long and it's here!! Highway Star is one of my favorite JoJo arcs, so I can't wait for the next episode :D

Poor Kira has to deal with fucking Jimmy Neutron in his new family, just his luck, I don't really blame him for thinking out loud and dropping some names, who would expect fucking cameras and mics in a household like that even for Kira who is super cautious.
And Poor Rohan has to deal with a 7 million yen repair fee and his house was burned
Josuke got super lucky he got out that situation with Tamami in there too. He didn't get the money he won fromm all those 3 six dices though it seems or at least it wasn't shown in that recap panel.
Time for the longest bike chase in Jojo, Highway Star should be good.
This is probably Rohan's defining episode.

Just for the "DAGA KOTOWARU" the episode was golden.I enjoyed the tension and the chase with the Highway Star and I liked that they show that little of Hayato.Next week is Josuke's turn to deliver with his own best quote. xD

DP delivered. Great episode, great animation, and the famous Rohan's scene was perfect.
The to be continued arrow at the middle of episode was kind of odd, though.

I think they changed some parts of the visuals just so they can

Will "But I refuse" finally become the new "But it was I"? Only time will tell.

Anyway, am I the only one who thinks the alien should have had two full episodes? Everything was kinda rushed, most of Josukes shenanigans were skipped and having two half arcs in one EP feels so complicated. Also the line about Rohan hating Josuke would have been a great ender.

Friend: Will you stop watching JoJo for a second?
Me: DAGA KOTOWARU!!

Excellent chapter, This mixed the best JoJo/Rohan moments in one. Hayato is a creep kid, having cameras in their room BEFORE having a murderer in his house.

Next we will have Speed Motorcycle ver.

Next week will be incredible if they adapted like this episode.

"I refuse" was perfect, Takahiro sakurai really fits rohan, also the animation was good.

The opening changes a bit (the poses now feels more dramatic, but yukako looks weird), and now is pretty obvious when they gonna put AOTBD.I'm definitively looking forward for that.

Strong episode with especially the last scene being pretty awesome with the change in style and the hype music kicking in. Also very interested in Kira's household affairs...
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

Kira just wants to live a quiet life and now he has a kid spying on him. I'm sure even someone as meticulous as him never would have seen that coming.

It was really cool to see Rohan refuse to save his own life in exchange for Jojo's, especially after all of that tension and animosity that was going on between them.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Josuke is very thoughtless. He could heal Tamami. I was wondering where he was when other stand users' meeting.

What a beautiful episode! While it was weird how they adapted the I am an Alien! arc, it seems to be working in favour of Highway Star arc. Knew that they were going to show the rest of the Kawajiri stuff this episode (I'd say expect them to split up and extend that content in future episodes too) and DAGA KOTOWARU was perfectly delivered.

Strap in everyone for one of the best fights in JoJo!

PS: Glad that they changed the OP slightly, it feels better now and will allow for something special later on too.

That "DAGA KOTOWARU" though... How do I say this...? It's a bit crude, but... heheh... I got...

Epic episode is epic. From Rohan's house burning for such stupid reason, to the revelation that Mikitaka may be or not a true alien to that ending, my God. Cannot wait for the next episode.

Btw, that kid it's amazing. Just a midget, yet he has cameras for all his house. Truly bizarre.

Some new visuals in the OP song. NICE.
DAMN Rohan takes cheating seriously. Stabbing his pinky. OUCH!!
Been awhile since we last saw Tamami.

LOL Rohan more concerned with how Josuke is cheating than his house on fire.
Hmm Mikitaka Alien or Stand User?

Highway Star is trouble.
"I refuse" Rohan is way too cool.

Time for Josuke to find the Stand User. Nice Motorcycle.

I bet everyone will agree with me that the highlight of this episode is Rohan going " I Refuse"
I also think that combining the alien arc and Highway Star arc is good to really portray Josuke and Rohan love hate ( or maybe respect hate? ) relationship

First I just have to mention this



Anyway, this episode felt a little different even for JoJo, it really was awesome and I'm looking forward to next week. With each appearance he makes, Rohan just keeps growing on me, he's absolute gold to watch and we've been getting a lot of him lately!

Also loving the interactions between him and Josuke and since we don't see them much- for good reason of course, because they do utterly despise one another. I did have a little giggle to myself when Rohan was riding that motorbike though, there was just something hilarious about it.

On another note, I guess we'll never know about the true origins of Mikitaka- actual alien, barmy Kars, or delusional high school student with rather large ears?
Nobody knows.

Burning down my house? What makes you think I'd hold that against you?

They managed to put the conclusion to I Am an Alien and the start of Highway Star, as well as the end of Yoshikage Kira's New Situation in there, together quite nicely.

The mid-episode "to be continued" is EXACTLY like it was in the manga, nothing new here. "I am an alien" arc ends in the middle of the first "highway star" chapter.

Anyways, pretty good episode.

Lol Rohan doesn't care about his house burning down. All he cares about is finding out how Josuke is cheating. Highway Star is pretty dangerous. Sucking out the nutrients from someone's body while running at speeds of 60 kph is just too much. And curiosity is almost killing the Rohan here. Josuke now has to find out where the stand user is operating his stand from, kick his ass and save Rohan because that stand seemingly has no weakness once you get caught. Josuke has to save the person who hates him and whom he hates back. But Rohan's coolness has probably decreased the amount of hatred Josuke had for him. This will end with Rohan and Josuke becoming friends to an extent, assuming Rohan gets out of this alive which I'm sure he will.

Well expect from Rohan? (Which I assume Rohan just checking everybody after he first look at Koichi's life).

he takes what he's lost and discards what he's won, he's every bit as alive as you and I

Seriously, Rohan should keep Josuke away from his house. Last time Josuke broke his windows and furniture (though he deserved that). This time, he indirectly caused the fire. That fire really came out of nowhere. Rohan's finger cutting move caught me off guard.
I can hardly picture a kid monitoring his parents like that.
Lol Mikitaka's explanation for his mom's words. I still think he's a true alien, but love that we don't get a definite answer.
I'm really confused by the ability of Highway Star. At first, I thought Rohan's stand evolved that he could even find some secrets by touching the wall. Why would Highway Star trick him by showing Kira's moves? No spoilers, just hope that the next ep can answer my question.
BTW, I like the changes in the OP.

Highway Star was one of the best mini-arcs in Part 4, and David Pro did a wonderful job bringing it to life in this episode. Can't wait to watch the second half next week.

And of course, how can I talk about Highway Star and not mention this beautiful moment?
