Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders S2 Episode 21: Dio’s World, Part I
So long, Senator Phillips.
Your young model wife chilling in your villa in Hawaii will miss you. Maybe.
Good thing Polnareff wasn’t alone for long because his ass would have been killed. Dio…is ridiculous. He’s as ruthless as ever, we haven’t properly seen his face since the ship accident in Part 1. We saw The World, which is super cool looking. The guys get a glimpse of its power, and they don’t get it. Thanks to spoilers, I actually know what the ability is and that’s why I think Dio is ridiculous. He was basically making fun of Polnareff on the stairs, what an ass. Plus he’s such a stereotypical vampire with that cape. I can make fun of him, but Dio is still Dio. He can kill them easily. Joseph and Kakyoin buy a truck and drive along a road, knowing Dio is going to be following them, unaware of the pincer attack that Jotaro cooked up. So! This asshole steals the car of a senator. He’s fucking with politicians now, holy crap. He doesn’t care what the senator says, he uses The World on him so that he couldn’t run away, and tosses him in the front to drive his own car. For Dio. All those college years aren’t going to save you now. Maybe it was better that he was killed. If he had lived after all the people he killed, he’d probably lose everything. And so commences a car chase, which doesn’t last too long.
Jotaro and Polnareff are behind, trying to get a motorcycle to work so they can come from behind. Joseph and Kakyoin make it out okay from the car crash, and Kakyoin seems to know a way to figure out The World’s ability. Also, thanks to Kakyoin, we know a bit about The World’s limitations. While being chased by Dio, Kakyoin sent Hierophant Green to attack him, but Dio being OP and all easily dodged its attacks. And by dodge, I mean flicking one of the jewels that ricocheted into the other jewels to break them all. Through that little encounter, Kakyoin was able to figure out two things. 1, The World only has the distance to fight within 10 meters. It’s a close range Stand, kind of like Star Platinum. And 2, it attacked with its fist and not anything else like projectiles, so it seriously is close range. So that’s good to know. Out of all the boys, Kakyoin would probably fare better against Dio because it shoots projectiles. Then again, as we saw, probably not. Because that didn’t end well.
They have the pincer attack planned, but I don’t know how well that’s going to go because it’s nighttime. They can beat up Dio all they want, but he can’t die. You can chop him in half, whatever he’ll put himself back together. Chop off his head? Well, we know the answer to that. Good luck, guys.
I feel like I should be ready to say good-bye to Kakyoin because that preview made it obvious. He’s probably going to die. He’s going to die. Is he going to die? Don’t tell me, please. But I have a feeling he will. When the preview shows a character slowly fading into white, and with them talking about how close they are with their friends…you’re not fooling me. Kakyoin is completely embarrassed with himself with the way he acted when first meeting Dio. He wants to change himself from the Kakyoin that he used to be, and confront Dio with a brave face. He couldn’t even contain himself before and attacked Dio and hurt himself in the process, but at least they know some things about The World. And now with his idea he’s going to try, well….I don’t know. The preview didn’t even show us scenes for the next episode. You can call it that they wanted to make us more excited for the next episode. But I don’t think so.
