JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure - Part 5: Golden Wind
Opening: “Traitor’s Requiem” by Daisuke Hasegawa [Diavolo Ver.]
Ending: "Modern Crusaders" by Enigma

Characters

Giorno Giovanni
Voiced by: Phillip Reich
Stand: Golden Wind (JP: Gold Experience)
Abilities: Life Giver and Life Shot
Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - A / Range - C / Persistence - D / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - A
Namesake: Giorno (Italian for “day”) / Gold Experience (album by Prince)
Born Haruno Shiobana, Giorno is the son of the vampire DIO (using Jonathan Joestar’s body) and a Japanese woman. Inspired by a nice gangster who helped him as a child, Giorno has made it his mission in life to become part of the mafia and rise through its ranks to become its leader, determined to stop the drug trade that has targeted Italy’s youth. Sometime recently, his hair turned from black to blonde and he manifested a Stand known as Golden Wind, which has the ability to give anything it touches life. Giorno most often uses this ability to transform inanimate objects into living creatures.


Bruno Bucciarati
Voiced by: Ray Chase
Stand: Zipper Man (JP: Sticky Fingers)
Ability: Zippers
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - C / Persistence - D / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - D
Namesakes: “Buccellati” (Sicilian fig cookie) / “Sticky Fingers” (Rolling Stones album)
A member of the Passione mafia, Bruno is one of the more righteous members, sharing Giorno’s desire to uproot the organization from the inside. His Stand, Zipper Man, can create zippers, which can either sever things in two or create pocket dimensions within objects that can hold either himself or other items.


Guido Mista
Voiced by: Sean Chiplock
Stand: Six Bullets (JP: Sex Pistols)
Abilities: Bullet Control and Enhanced Reloading
Stats: Destructive Power - E / Speed - C / Range - B / Persistence - A / Precision - A / Developmental Potential - B
Namesakes: “Insalata mista” (Italian for “mixed salad”) / Sex Pistols (British punk rock band)
Mista is the laid-back member of Team Bucciarati, the most sociable and carefree with a desire for an easy life, a calmness that helps him to focus even in the heat of battle. At the same time, he is the most prone to casual violence for the pettiest of reasons. Mista also has an intense phobia of the number four, refusing to get into situations where the number comes up. Mista’s Stand, Six Bullets, is a Colony Stand type made up of six bullet-like creatures (numbered 1 to 7, skipping 4) that can help guide and control the bullets shot out of Mista’s gun via rebounding shots mid-air, as well as reloading the gun for Misa. Despite being Stands, each of the Six Bullets have distinct personalities separate from their user, can have conversations with Mista, and even eat food.


Trish Una
Voiced by: Lizzie Freeman
Stand: Spicy Lady (JP: Spice Girl)
Ability: Softening
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - C / Persistence - B / Precision - D / Developmental Potential - C
Namesakes: Trish Gott (American model) / “una” (Italian for “one”) / Spice Girls (British pop group)
The estranged daughter of the Passione’s boss, Trish never knew her father and lived the first 15 years of her life with her mother until her passing. After this, she found herself placed under the mob’s protection, switching hands until winding up in the care of Buccarati’s group. Now she is targeted by her own father and his personal assassins, who intends to snuff her out to ensure his identity remains secret. While on their journey, Trish has manifested her own Stand, Spicy Lady, who has the ability to soften any material it touches into a rubber-like consistency.


Jean Pierre Polnareff
Voiced by: Doug Erholtz
Namesakes: Jean-Paul Belmondo (actor) / Michel Polnareff (musician)
In 1987, Jean Pierre Polnareff set off on a mission to hunt down the man with two left hands who killed his sister, with his search leading him into the clutches of the century-old vampire known as DIO. However, he was saved by the Joestar family, and aided them on their quest to kill DIO, exacting his revenge on his sister's killer along the way. Though he parted with his companions once their mission was complete, he kept in touch with Jotaro during the 90s, when the two of them learned of the Arrows. Polnareff's investigations alerted the attention of Diavolo, the Passione's boss, who personally confronted him. While Polnareff managed to escape, the encounter cost him an eye and his legs, and he went underground until the moment was right. That moment came when Buccarati's group stood to challenge the Boss, and with an Arrow in hand, Polnareff was ready to help put an end to the devil once and for all. But just before he could pass the Arrow onto Buccarati, Diavolo killed him. However Polnareff's Stand, Silver Chariot, was pierced by the Arrow just before death, and transformed into a new form: Chariot Requiem, which transferred his soul to the body of the turtle Coco Large, where he now lives on.


Diavolo
Voiced by: Kellen Goff
Stand: Emperor Crimson (JP: King Crimson)
Ability: Time Erasure and Precognition
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - E / Persistence - E / Precision - Unknown / Developmental Potential - Unknown
Namesakes: Diavolo (Italian for “devil”) / King Crimson (British rock band)
Diavolo is the elusive leader of the Italian mafioso gang known as Passione. His identity is a complete mystery that he intends on upholding at all costs, which has now been threatened upon the discovery of his long lost daughter Trish. His Stand, the terrifying Emperor Crimson, has the seemingly unstoppable ability to perceive ten seconds ahead into the future and erase the events that would have transpired during that time (example: If someone tries to shoot the Boss with a gun, the Boss can erase the moment that the bullet would have pierced his body and remain unharmed). No one other than the Boss is able to remember or perceive those ten seconds, and only the Boss can alter events during it.



Episodio 37 (150)
“King of Kings”
Chapters adapted: 584-587

Now:
After solving the mystery of Requiem, Diavolo steals the arrow by taking control of Trish's soul, planning to pierce his Stand. The final battle has at last begun.

Before the final fight of JoJo Part 5 begins, Here is an interesting video on Diavolo that's speculates he is less Two-Face and possibly more Satan or manifestation of King Crimson itself:

Previously on JJBA: Will the real Diavolo please stand up?

When it comes to bad dads, anime really goes all out.

He brought you into this world, and I think he intends to take you out.

Well, then, I guess it's...TIME TO PLAY THE GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!

I am Diavolo, King of Kings. Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!

The soul game is over. Thank goodness, I was getting really confused.

Been a long time coming, but I guess Bucciarati's finally gone.

Diavolo trying to pick up that arrow is like Peter Griffin trying to pick up a frog.

Hell of a sendoff Bucciarati is getting. Much more extravagant than Narancia.

So are those mutated people gonna be okay or is that still happening?

Down to Giorno, Mista, and Trish.

"Bark bark bark bark--ugggh...what did I do last night?"

Oh, yeah, he's still here.

What's with his hair? He looks like a mutated strawberry.

This is a weird variation on the Excalibur trope.

Congratulations! Your Golden Wind evolved into Golden Wind Requiem!

Golden Wind digibolves to...GOLDENWINDMON!

Nice one, Crims, you just gave him a makeover.

And this kid is related to Dio?

Again with the time control.

King Crimson's power still confuses me. Isn't basically just the same as The World?

Now Diavolo can form his own chorus line.

Ah, some good ol' Ora Ora action.

Looks like you're pretty well screwed Diavola.

I never thought I'd say this, but this is the most confused I've ever been watching a JoJo episode.

Strawberry puree, anyone?

Golden Wind Requiem. Canonically the most powerful Stand in the series, because its power is literally "no".

Two episodes left. If you're wondering how we have enough plot left to fill two episodes, technically we don't, but, well, you'll see.

Ask for how Gold Experience Requiem works...

In other words: Diavolo can erase cause from effect.
Requiem’s power erases effect from cause.

RIP Bucciarati, but did one last great act. Wow, they got really illustrative with his send off.

Oooh yeah, Diavolo gets a taste of his medicine at last. Just like the finale between Jotaro and Dio. I guess the World was more about stopping time but Crimson is about predicting then changing time. But that is worthless against Golden Wind Requiem with essentially the power of Ctrl+Z. :D :D

Bucciarati does one last noble deed and ascends to Valhalla. Narancia gets impaled on some railings and Giorno simply takes his body back.
Narancia's stand did have the fly over and Giorno did create the flowers around his body at the stadium.

No offense intended, but I think that canceling Jaydeep Hasrajani's "Boons and Curses" is like a punishment for the said show's creator being involved in the hated 2016 Powerpuff Girls reboot. Your opinions on my comment?
There is a big difference between "understanding someone's actions" and "agreeing with someone's actions". Sometimes, I get the feeling that some don't recognize the difference.
It feels like crossover fighters are replacing kart racers as a video game genre.

The last point is on the corny side, but it's worth mentioning.
My hopes for the Warner Bros. Discovery upfront tomorrow.
HBO Max picks up Bone from Netflix.
Discovery Family replacement announced.
