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.


Narancia Ghirga
Voiced by: Kyle McCarley
Stand: Li’l Bomber (JP: Aerosmith)
Abilities: Machine Guns and Bombs, Carbon Dioxide Radar
Stats: Destructive Power - B / Speed - B / Range - B / Persistence - C / Precision - E / Developmental Potential - C
Namesakes: “Arancia” (Italian for “orange”) / Aerosmith (rock band)
Narancia is the most child-like member of Team Bucciarati, possessing a rather bratty personality. But he is incredibly loyal towards his friends, viewing them like family. His Stand, Li’l Bomber, takes the form of a small toy airplane with all the capabilities of a real fighter plane, including machine guns and bombs as weapons, as well as a radar that Narancia can use to track enemies via the carbon dioxide they exhale.


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
Stand: Chariot Requiem
Abilities: Currently unknown
Stats: Destructive Power - E / Speed - E / Range - A / Persistence - A / Precision - E / Developmental Potential - A
Namesakes: Jean-Paul Belmondo (actor) / Michel Polnareff (musician) / The Chariot (tarot card) / Requiem (Mozart composition)
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. However, 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.


Vinegar Doppio
Voiced by: Griffin Burns
Stand: Epitaph (sub-ability of Emperor Crimson)
Ability: Precognition
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - E / Persistence - E / Precision - Unknown / Developmental Potential - Unknown
Namesakes: Vinegar (aqueous solution of acetic acid, often used in flavoring food) / Doppio (Italian for “double”) / Epitaph
Vinegar Doppio is the consigliere, underboss, of Passione, being the only one in the organization to report directly to the Boss and send out his orders. To most, Doppio appears to be a meek, cowardly teenager, and for the most part this is true. But when it comes to the Boss, Doppio is fiercely loyal and will do anything to serve him. In actuality, however, Doppio is really the Boss’s alter ego, a split-personality which allows him to move undetected while maintaining his anonymity. Doppio is completely unaware of this, but receives orders by talking to the boss through random objects that he believes are telephones. Doppio is able to use a portion of Emperor Crimson’s power, namely the precognition ability of Epitaph to see five seconds into the future, as well as briefly materialize Emperor Crimson’s arms for self defense.


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 34 (147)
“The Requiem Quietly Plays, Part 1”
Chapters adapted: 571-574

Previously on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:
Rather than kill Bucciarati, Diavolo had Doppio use him to find out who he was planning to meet. Doppio helped Bucciarati across the road to the Colosseum, but stopped when he spotted Mista and realized that Bucciarati's team was nearby. Diavolo called Doppio and told him that Bucciarati's body is actually dead and that, due to his sight and hearing now failing him, he is only able to sense the souls inside people. Diavolo disguised Doppio's soul as Trish's to deceive Bucciarati.

After they reach the Colosseum, Doppio and Bucciarati encountered Polnareff, who Diavolo recognized. Years earlier, Diavolo had unearthed six Stand arrows in Egypt, keeping one and selling the rest to Enyaba. He then used the power of the Stand arrow to build his criminal organization. He was tracked down by Polnareff and the two battled, the victorious Diavolo leaving Polnareff's broken body for dead. Back in the Colosseum, Diavolo took control of his and Doppio's shared body, abandoned Bucciarati, and made his way towards Polnareff.

Though Polnareff had created a method to track Emperor Crimson's erased time by cutting himself and counting the number of blood drops, Emperor Crimson still gained the upper hand, and punched a hole through Polnareff's body. Diavolo recovered the arrow, but not before Polnareff used it to pierce his own Stand, Silver Chariot, which transformed into a new shadow-like Stand, Chariot Requiem.

Now:
Polnareff has been killed by Diavolo, but his Stand, Silver Chariot, has been pierced by the Arrow and taken on a startling metamorphosis into a new Stand known as “Chariot Requiem”. Before anyone can react, the now-autonomous Stand unleashes its new ability...

This opening is...different.

Mixing things up for the final boss, as usual.

Did those fairies from Sleeping Beauty put everyone to sleep again?

Well, this is gonna be a boring episode.

"My hands are all soaked in blood!"
Is it good if it's yours or someone else's?

"My dude, do you even hear yourself?"
My dude, did you just say "my dude"?

...and the show doesn't change the voices during the body switch of the main characters.

Given the situation our heroes are in, it's probably Friday in Rome.

Always awkward when switch bodies with the opposite gender. Giorno and Narancia got off pretty easy.

So...Stands are attached to a person's mind and not their body? It's like that episode of Powerpuff Girls, which...didn't make a ton of sense either.

No, your stands probably still work. You've just using other people's.

The freakiest of all Fridays.

I think Bucciarati is gonna mis this body-swapping party.

Polnareff's a turtle now. Yeah, okay.

BTW, not sure turtles have the vocal chords necessary to speak human language, but whatever.

Nice of the captions to tell us whose mind is talking.

You could have thought of using a cane or a yardstick or having someone move the dresser?

"I'm a little hairier than usual..."
That was funny.

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.
