THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Finally, the damn sun rises. Pretty good soundtrack this episode imo.

Loved Jojo's determination inside that plane tbh. Dat aerial fight and piranhas. Good episode and holy shit, aerial dive against Cars. Nice.



BOOM. Should be a good finale next week. I'm looking forward to how the fight will conclude.

Great budget this episode.

Oh, and the announcement was just about the release of the Bluray...

LOL at the pictorial explanation about the "Ultimate Life Form" .

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

That was great, although I missed the narrator telling us how "Sex: Useless".
I also liked the sound effects they used in the opening.

The OST has a lot of wasted potential.
I can understand why Iwasaki was mad.

In my opinion, Matsuo Hayato a done a better work for phantom Blood ost than Iwasaki on Battle Tendency .

Fuck yes, another budget episode. Animation-wise, this was on pair with Caesar vs. Wham.

After listening to the OST previews on the official website the COMIN' THROUGH track feels kinda empty without the vocals.


Dat Overdrive preview!

You DO realize Iwasaki isn't in charge of sound direction, right?

Mmh,for me,music was a bit off this episode(however the music itself is just great),and those sound effects in the opening were horrible,cause they all were pretty much the same,despite the situation and were much louder than the song.And animation was pretty bad for the pre-last episode.And the style becoming too much off from the first battle tendency episode.Still,quite enjoyable.

And what OST previews are you talking bout?

Personally, I think they just need more soundtracks. The choice in music is pretty bold (did not expect the dubstep o__o) so it's easy to tell when they reuse them because it kind of irks me how often they use the "comin through" track. Anyways, this was a pretty slow but quality episode. I'd choose good picture quality over good animation since still images take up about 80% of the time. And for a while I was worried they wouldn't include the squirrel scene, but that was glorious.

Can I presume that it's because you thought it's going to be "muda" when the actual text says "hitsuyou na shi"?

No, I just expected some kind of over-the-top narration, spanning several minutes to narrate us everything on the spread.
"IQ 400! SEX: USELESS! THE ULTIMATE BEING ONLY NEEDS TO ACHIEVE THE FINAL VICTORY", etc.

Ah, I see. Yeah, agreed. I basically thought "huh? that's it?", could have been a little more elaborate though I guess that means they may have to cut the action, so I'm okay with it the way it is I guess. BD extras perhaps?

Maybe. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see how they'll pace the final episode. Will they include Stardust Crusaders scenes or not?

And I just loved this scene.

Holy Production Values JoJo! The artwork and animation this week was just on another level than usual. We even got some new dubstep tracks!

The god Cars had so many vogue poses this week it was crazy. What a final battle with crazy piranha, German Airplanes, Explosions, Killer Squirrels. JoJo's plan to kill him with a volcano I have to say was really creative. I was worried he'd get some power up but nope JoJo is still using his wits to take Cars out!

BROHEIM FTW and an epic cliffhanger XD I'm not ready for this show to end

I would have been cool with just a few of them, to help hype up the finale, but they just kept on going and overstaying their welcome.

^ Precisely.

Another thing: Isn't Cars supposed to love animals? When he created another squirrel which just devours a real one. Isn't it out of character for him to do so? Is it the same in the manga?

It's been a while since I read BT, but I'm sure the squirrel scene was exactly like that in the manga as well.
Anyway, that's Jojo logic. Nobody takes the plot serious.

It is not logic here, but characterization. Remember how we joked about JoJo playing parnk against a cat while the very evil Cars saved a dog from a car driven by despicable drunkard? Now that joke just loses the meaning.

But that is no real squirrel. It is still part of his body and he can change it into something else just as he pleases to take advantage of that animal's characteristics...

He was able to create a multitude of piranhas while flying and he had all his members.

I actually kind of liked it. I would not have liked the sound effects for every episode, though.

An okay episode. Not really a favorite fight of mine and I just don't really care about Cars, I find him pretty dull. Thankfully, Jojo and Stroheim made up for it a bit.

Guys, the squirrel scene isn't decharacterization. Cars always showed respect for nature because he couldn't tame it, it was above him, it was the only thing that Cars judged stronger than him.

By getting the Red Stone of Asia and surpassing his weakness, he can now control the nature.

He's above it now, that's why there's the squirrel scene, it's to show Cars's true personality, as now he can control even the nature, he doesn't have to respect it anymore, he's the strongest. Cars is that kind of man.

Bloody amazing ep! Loved the added sound effects in the OP, it makes me think that the stakes are high everything is getting cranked to 11!

Cars was insane with his new powers, I really felt the struggle to survive from both warriors. The colours were psychedelic and the dubstep music was going crazy. I thought this episode's presentation was sky high brilliant too. Extremely excited to see how it all ends next week.

This episode is really something quite special, it certainly lives up to the bizarre adventure part of the title. Things are going to be heading towards the big finish next episode, I can't wait to see ridiculous it is when animated :D.

Regarding the sound effects in the opening and the soundtrack for this episode: The sound effects in the OP were awful; I could see what they were trying to achieve, but they overplayed it too much. The music itself I liked though, which is surprising considering I generally HATE dubstep based songs.

Stroheim "parachute" was so cool saving our hero. Fucking Bro.
At the beginning the music was a bit more noisy than usual, wish they used other epic tracks, not saying it was bad but it couldv been better.
