Cioccolata and Secco’s stands are a match made in hell. If you have a stand that attacks the further down you go, what better stand to accompany that then a stand that allows the user to move through and mold stone. Allowing him to pull things down to the ground and lower down to be attacked by the mold of Green Day.
However, it doesn’t seem that mold grows on things that are dead. Which allows Golden Wind to finally address something that has been bothering me for a while now. Bruno’s state of being, does he count as alive? Does he count as dead? What exactly is he?
While we don’t get a strong answer towards the last part of that question. We do find that he counts as something dead, as he dives downwards and isn’t affected by Green Day, he gets a few good punches in on Secco and allows Mista to get them out of there by car. The group escapes to rome.
While this is happening, Narancia is recovering from his injuries and Trish is just annoyed. Annoyed by the lax way that Bruno seems to be treating them, like he doesn’t care about them. He doesn’t ask if they’re alright, and it upsets her. Narancia isn’t bothered by these things, he isn’t going to pretend he is and he isn’t about to pretend he understands exactly what it is that Trish is feeling either. Still, he thinks that she needs to take some time to figure out her feelings and take stock of them.
If she does have a crush on Bruno, I feel sorry for her. Aside from the fact that he is basically a walking corpse at this point, it seems that even in this state he doesn’t have much time left.
He calls it a second chance from heaven, or something along those lines. Still though, he tells Giorno that Golden Experience can’t help people whose lives have already come to an end. What does that mean for him? What miracle is keeping him running?
I still don’t understand the true nature of what happened to him back in Venice.
Well, it’s not like we have a lot of time to reflect because as Giorno and Bruno are talking about this. The sound of a helicopter fills the air, Cioccolata and Secco have followed them into rome. A city with a very large population, and that means plenty of room for Green Day’s mold to jump and grow.
It can also spread to the colosseum before their group even had a prayer of getting there at the rate people were dropping. This entire situation isn’t just a problem for Bruno and his crew, but for the boss and Passione as well. They have members in Rome that will drop like flies. It’s no wonder Doppio was told to reign Cioccolata in no matter the cost.
The fight splits, Bruno against Secco on the ground. As Giorno and Mista worked together to trap Cioccolata in the air by using a combo attack of Sex Pistols and Golden Experience, a tree grew from a building that Mista shot and grabbed onto the helicopter to hold it into place.
The party splits as the episode ends and we’re in for some good old fashioned Stand Battles.
We’re no closer to figuring out who their mysterious ally is, or if or how Doppio will play into taking out Cioccolata and Secco. We’ll just have to find out in part 2.
