i saw giorno in there and was surprised for a millisecond when i clicked translate until i remembered what it actually means, lol. this is heartwarming!
random thing: I just found a pretty reasonable post saying Killer Queen Bites The Dust can be explained as a requiem retroactively because technically any damage to the user is transferred to the stand, so it's exactly the same as piercing the stand if you yourself are pierced. That's a hilarious use of Araki's logic that he clearly never considered but is totally valid and makes sense!
I love that all three parts of the Stand Arrow Trilogy involve as a main plot focus ways that Stands can become powered-up beyond normal limitations... but in literally every single part the method by which this happens changes.
-First the Arrow literally moves completely on its own to pierce the USER.
-Second you have to intentionally stab it into your STAND, and it seems willing to accept multiple different people if they can reach it first.
-And finally, Dio's foot bone becomes an invisible ghost zombie that turns corpses into plants that birth a baby which only responds to a secret password of nonsense words and then you have to do some Eldrich Bullshit at specific GPS coordinates at a specific time.
Araki just loves figuring out new ways to justify crazy power spikes too much to stick to one, and I love it.
