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
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.


Stand: Chariot Requiem
Abilities: Regeneration, Grand Scale Soul Manipulation, Stand Manipulation, Complete Alteration of All Life
Stats: Destructive Power - E / Speed - E / Range - A / Persistence - A / Precision - E / Developmental Potential - A
Namesakes: The Chariot (tarot card) / Requiem (Mozart composition)
Chariot Requiem was once Polnareff’s Stand, Silver Chariot, which had been a close range combat Stand he was born with and helped him in the battle against DIO. However, after being pierced by the Arrow, it evolved, becoming a terrifying autonomous Stand, able to alter the souls of living beings. Upon activation, it puts every living creature within an unknown radius to sleep, who will, when awoken, find themselves in the body of the closest person (or animal) they were near when put under. To Stand users, this soul alteration means a boost in their abilities; However, if they try to attack Chariot Requiem directly, their own Stand will turn on them. Lastly, a soul’s prolonged exposure to Chariot Requiem will alter the body in some kind of otherworldly eldritch abomination. Despite having no known combat abilities of its own, Chariot Requiem is still, by far, one of the most dangerous Stands to ever exist.


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 35 (148)
“The Requiem Quietly Plays, Part 2”
Chapters adapted: 575-578

Previously on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:
The shadowy figure took the Stand arrow from Diavolo and caused everyone in Rome to fall asleep. As Bucciarati's team awoke, they awkwardly discovered that they had switched bodies with those that were closest in proximity to them, with Giorno swapping with Narancia and Mista with Trish. After the initial shock, they found that they could still control their own Stands, although they were unaware of who inhabited Bucciarati's unconscious body.

Meanwhile, Polnareff's soul had transferred into the turtle, Coco Large. He explained that his former Stand, Silver Chariot, held the arrow and that it had become Chariot Requiem, which causes souls to switch bodies. He told them that he was unable to control this Stand and that their only option to defeat Diavolo was to retrieve the arrow from Chariot Requiem. He also warned them of Doppio, though he was unsure of his relationship to Diavolo. At the Colosseum's entrance, the group saw Diavolo charging towards Chariot Requiem. However, after he summoned Zipper Man to cut off Chariot Requiem's arm, they realized that Bucciarati was inside Diavolo's body.

Now:
While the team is now all accounted for, the mystery of which body Diavolo’s soul now inhabits persists, as well as figuring out how to defeat Chariot Requiem.

Last time: Leave it to JoJo to have a Freaky Friday storyline with a talking turtle.

So Diavolo now possesses a literal rotting corpse.

Well, you could have kept the the more feminine body, Giorno.

Hey, Cheese Boy, good to see you're not in Rome ATM. Now if only we can get an adaptation of
his post-series story.

You know they're coming out with a horror movie version of Freaky Friday?

This is making me wonder how a multiple personality disorder version would be like.

Yeah, he can't stay any more put than that, Giorno.

RIP Narancia. No character should ever talk about their bright future. Gruesome way to go and in the blink of an eye. It's a bigger gut punch because he's the one who decided to go with them while Fugo didn't. The flowers were a nice gesture from Giorno as well as the promise.

Polnareff's revelation pretty much convinced me that Diavolo is hiding among one of them and it has to be Trish in Mista's body, that's why she doesn't detect him - he's exploiting their connection - and saw a glimmer of Crimson when they were leaving the coliseum. Though why the hell Trish didn't mention sensing/seeing Crimson...

Can't wait to see how they get rid of Chariot Requiem.

Another family emergency update (long story short):

After charging in and out of the hospital a few more times, my mother had to do a colonoscopy earlier this month and they detected colon cancer. So yesterday, she underwent colon surgery and is now 100% cancer-free.

Now she's in the ICU due to very low blood pressure, still in the process of recovery.
"Crabgrass" is coming back and also in newspapers from Monday, it's a great comic strip if you've not checked it out, you should. “Crabgrass” Will Officially Launch in Newspapers on Monday | GoComics.com
Why does society keep devolving for the last century or so, why is America 50 years behind where it should’ve been? And anybody who tries to makes things better will be swept under the rug or get screwed over by cancer or disease.

I hate to get political here especially but for what happened today I can’t help
Just sending out hearts and hugs to anyone who needs them on this awful day. You're not alone.
