First time in a long time since a character's death has made me tear a little, maybe because I'm so connected with the series and the characters.

Abbacchio was my favorite character after Gio and Bucciarati. RIP comrade! That boss is something else, even though he killed him I don't resent him any less because he plays his role as a villain well. Although it seems his plan has failed since Abbacchio has managed to uncover him a bit.

Damn, I'll always be loyal to this series even no matter what!

This was hard to hold back man. I had too much reminders of freaking Part 3 of Jojo. And now this just hits much harder.

Wow, im so glad never read the manga up this chapters.
Abacchio was the best dressed after Giorno.



I watched avengers today, but the real emotional tearjerk for me was this ep.

note to self that i will never follow: don't invest into the JoBros even if you know what will happen to them

Abba is prolly the 2nd best Part 5 JoBro next to Bucciarati. F

The previous episode is among the best anime battles I have ever seen and this tragic episode was executed with perfection especially the afterlife part. The last time I felt so sad watching JoJo was when that bastard dog Iggy and Avdol died.

What a fantastic episode, really sad as well. The limbo scene before Abacchio went to the afterlife was just so good, bittersweet - in the end, he got the identity of the boss, RIP!

Honestly, I never really liked Abbacchio as a character all that much, but damn if this didn't get me crying, mostly through Narancia's reactions. The animation was so good as well. If two recap episodes is the price we have to pay for animation this good, then that's more than fair.
Anyway, super hyped for what's coming next, assuming my vague memory of the manga is correct.

My Boi Risotto didn’t die easily. It’s quite rare to have a villain with limited screen time being that respected & loved by the fans even though he’s defeated. That's how Araki portrays his characters.
The effect when KC blew away 0.5 second was kinda a let down. Fancy as it was, it’s not as clear as the way it’s presented in the manga imo.

The scenes where Abbacchio cried with relief because of his partner’s words & where the crew struggled to accept his death were beautifully handled. I’m not a huge fan of Abbacchio, so I was not that emotional when reading about his death. But the 2 scenes made me teary thanks to the fantastic performance of Narancia’s voice actor, especially when he shouted “Are we just going to leave Abbacchio all alone?”.
Seeing Abbacchio resting in peace with smile on his face when the sunshine came out of clouds is the only thing comforting.

I thought we’re gonna have a recap ep next week, but I felt unsure after seeing the title. Are we gonna have THAT chapter animated this early? Probably not, it would be another title if that’s gonna happen.

RIP Abbacchio, best JoJo tsundere. I found his death sad in the manga, but the anime managed to make it more gut-wrenching, thanks to the brilliant voice acting of the gang members (especially Narancia and his denial of the tragic events), I even shed a few tears.


Same. I remember being shocked at how quickly it all went down when I read the manga. But the anime, oh man! I couldn't keep a dry eye when Narancia was losing it. DP did a fantastic job with this episode!

And with that ends the Metallica vs King Crimson arc, which is for all intents and purposes the highlight of Vento Aureo alongside Grateful Dead+Beach Boy. There are still some good moments here and there with Giorno (you know the one) and Mr Turtle, but yeah, don't really expect a bombastic finale like DIO vs Jotaro unless David Pro adds something extra to spice things up, Part 5's finale is not very strong.

That being said, I'm just gonna go ahead and comment that, as of right now, the anime is way better than the manga counterpart, it's just SO GOOD on every level. Voice acting, OST (I really need Risotto's theme, that one is excellent), pacing, the new La Squadra scenes...it's incredible how good adapted this whole thing and it's also a shame that other phenomenal mangas like Berserk, Vagabond,etc can't get this level of attention or passion behind their work.

I just hope they confirm Part 6 at the end of the show so that we may have a chance of seeing Part 7, Araki's masterpiece, in our lifetimes.

My fav death in the franchise was done a great justice with this episode. I adore everything they did with it today especially the build up to it where you just know something isnt going right when they reach that rock and it seems like the boss is cornered.

Now that this arc is done, do you think the adaptation did it justice? You were hyping it up a couple of eps ago quite a lot, good to see it's getting the appreciation it deserves.
I'd say it goes without saying im happy how it was adapted, especially cause I think it perfectly encapsulated why i think specifically the boss was an underrated antagonist, not only is his doppio/the boss personas make for a really entertaining dynamic but the fact that his powers are so crazy it was able to take out a lead character so quickly really sells just how tough an opponent he is.

I mean to be fair, that fight has the exact same problem that part 5's will have so if people werent super bothered by that one they probably will be fine with what part 5 pulls. I also recall at least the lead up to the infamous part being WAAAAY stronger than what part 3 pulled with its final fight, where its lead up was essentially just tossing away characters for the sake of making dio seem stronger than he actually was.

Oh shit... what a heartbreaking episode. RIP Aba.. One of the most badass characters in the gang. He did pretty well, and he managed to leave behind the face of the boss. I think that shit will get real in the next episodes, i just can't wait to see how they will defeat the boss! I need more!

The annoying Narancia's tantrum ruined the moment.
It's like the authors were trying too hard to squeeze emotions from people, overacting Nic Cage style.
Entirely different from the shocking Risotto's defeat from the previous episode, which actually made me feel devastated.

R.I.P. Abbacchio. I'm glad I didn't get spoiled about your death. 2 deaths this episode as well, since Risotto died at the beginning of the episode.

Also, dammit, another recap episode next week? Annoyed that I have to wait another 2 weeks for the next actual JoJo episode.

FVCK. that was a punch in the gut. alright I felt bad reading the chapter where Abbacchio dies, I remember feeling sad, but the episode made me cry with Narancia. the adaptation was really immersive... those scenes in motion, with a soundtrack and the awesome jobs from the VAs... oh welp, i'm already bracing myself for this last cour. :(

My favorite thing about Abbacchio's death is that he's the only character who never winds up liking Giorno before he dies. Everyone else has their little "Wow, Giorno sure is great" moment, but Abbacchio dies thinking Giorno is a little shit.

Also, he called it when he said Giorno was going to get them killed.


hahaha that's great

The #1 thing I love the most about JJBA is its unpredictability. Such an unexpected outcome again!

Bucciarati is very smart to recognize that they were just being used by another guy to kill Risotto.

King Crimson is a great villain! Typically in anime, the final bosses only appear near the end and fight the final battle. But only in JJBA can I see the boss struggle in a fight against a non-MC and narrowly crawl his way out - despite his power.

The most recent 3 villains in JJAB so far have the ability to manipulate time. It's only fitting for the boss: What is more powerful than time?!

The ending song sounds a lot like the Death Note theme.

Again, I'm excited about the author's accurate take on science: drinking blood is a fast way to replenish iron, and blood types don't matter for drinking blood because he's not mixing their blood with his own! 👍

Without the dead giveaway of the haircolor, it was a lot less obvious that the boss was among those boys, making the whole scene work a lot better. Araki did a great job there in the manga.

For the second time, a flashback about a character is presented in the very episode he dies. And I found somehow funny how Giorno couldn't do anything to heal Abbacchio, but was able to heal Bruno.

this is a pretty fair point, i dont think theres was really anything they could of done to alleviate this, though to be fair us manga readers knew to focus on the kids cause we know the scene where as an anime only people wouldnt.

Now that I thought of it you're right. But that post-mortem scene didn't work anyways because they tried to make you care about Abbacchio when they didn't bother to make it before. And you're already pointing out Bruno's healing was convenient.

The thing with Bruno is a classic case of a phenomen called "Araki Forgot".
Only 11 weeks/episodes left, I wonder how they'll potray the certain someone in the next ep.

How exactly? He didn't really forget about it and we always knew it was some kinda special case.

I know Jojo has many plot holes, but now people threw this Araki Forgot meme literally everywhere even when it doesn't make sense is becoming really annoying.

Part 3, Jotaro revived a shriveled, brain-dead Joseph, without any special abilities.
Part 4, Josuke heals his grandpa who was attacked by Angelo, with a stand that precisely restores objects to their original state, yet he can't revive Mr. Ryohei.

See my point?
Araki is extremely fucking inconsistent.
If Bruno could be brought back from death (his soul left his body),
why couldn't Abbacchio?

You missed the point on that post mortem scene. Its meant to be a closure of his backstory, the end of the road, his final stage, letting him now that he can now rest in piece despite his wrong doings. He redeemed his actions and his partner congratulated him.

Also Bruno's healing might seem convenient but it will be explained later why he was able to keep "living". (Also, for someone who cut his heart pulse and still managed to be conscious, this shouldn't be weird at all, it shows how big Bruno's resolve/will is by "staying alive" on a dead body, Kinda similar to what happened to Alphonse in FMA when his soul was linked to an armor)

Except that his soul didn't actually leave his body and that was just Giorno's imagination. If you read the manga you should know that. Also, he healed Bruno pretty fast while for Abbacchio clearly some time has passed and they said they were too late.
Time in anime, in general, isn't very precise, 5 minutes can last 20 episodes and some times 1 episode cover 6 months so we can't really rely on it and we should just believe what the characters say

Abbacchio didn't have enough focus on a personal level to make that moment so significant. Also a character is supposed to redeem itself while still being alive, not after it dies.

I like to say that Bruno is still standing "by the sheer force of anger". =p he is virtually dead.

The Abbacchio scene with his police partner was an afterlife encounter. He realized he was not on the living world anymore as he went to catch the bus to return to the gang and his friend said that bus won't go back. Then he cried. It's not a flashback, just his soul wandering ^^

But he DOES have focus on a personal level, that you didn't care about it its a complete different matter. Also, he fulfilled his job while still being alive, so he indeed redeemed himself while still being alive. He just didn't live enough to show it off.

I figured out something about you after all this time here, it seems that you are simply not paying enough attention, why don't you just admit you didn't even care in the first place instead of complaining about stuff you clearly missed the point of?

You really are just gonna ignore the different states they were in, bruno was still barely alive when giorno found him, abacchio however was already super dead by the time bruno and narnacia even found the boy behind the rock let alone realized something was up. He was likley already dead by a few minutes before giorno even touched him.

Jojo has writing issues no one denies that, but this complaint is just desperately grasping at straws.

The focus on him as a character was too little for making me care, since most of the moments when the show focused on him were in the middle of battles. And man, since when fulfilling a job you were ordered to do is redemption? When did he do something to make up for letting his partner die to the hands of the guy who bribed him to silence a crime? Never.

This right here proves that you certainly didn't pay enough attention to the afterlife scene. Also, your main complaint is that whats known of Abbacchio is "too little" for you to care. While I agree that SOMETIMES resorting on little screen time to make you care for a character isn't the best suited, it doesn't always mean that because a character doesn't have enough sceen time for you to care is a "failed attempt to make people care about it", if it's done right, 5 minutes can be more than enough.

The whole afterlife scene of Abbacchio was to show how Abbacchio failed as a cop for being bribed and how he redeemed himself by doing things properly this time despite how impossible it might have looked (Remember, the police were often bribed and the fact that criminals would be released from prison that easily would make anyone discouraged to keep on doing his work because it would feel pointless), and considering the exact date of the flashback he had to search in order to reveal the boss true identity, he could have used Moody Blues to show a random person, but he didn't. That's why he redeemed himself, he completed his job despite the odds of success.

I figured out something about you after all this time here, it seems that you are simply not paying enough attention, why don't you just admit you didn't even care in the first place instead of complaining about stuff you clearly missed the point of?

Are you serious? Would I have bothered to share my views here if I didn't care about it?


There's a reason why people call you a troll here...

> Complains about JoJo being "convenient"
>> Has watched JoJo until Part 5 and still complains about it

Is this really the best you can? Resorting to fallacies?


And last but not least, I seriously doubt you could have come this far if "conveniences" were something that bothered that much. Like what @JizzyHitler said above, Bruno was barely still alive when Giorno healed him, Abbachio was already dead when they found him, nothing they could have done for him.

While watching JoJo you can't just watch it taking certain scenes in a completely literal mindset, because you'll simply miss the point. Its one of the reasons why adapting JoJo is really hard.
Don't forget to say Good Bye with a Smile!
