I made the mistake of playing through the Eyes of Heaven game and in only 2 seconds saw some pretty major spoilers for this part XD. It was on sale and couldn't help myself. Thankfully I had read parts 6-8 ahead so it wasn't that bad...(just skipped 5 cuz I wanted to see unspoiled as an anime)

JoJo's always been about the journey, not the destination. The World being capable stopping time was known by hardcore fans years before the manga came to the use, by virtue of DIO's presence in Heritage for the Future on Dreamcast. Adding to that, The World's powers were a meme over a decade before the Stardust Crusaders anime began, thanks to some flash animations that appeared on 2ch back in 2003.

Does knowing the mystery of The World (which is supposed to be a huge draw of Stardust Crusaders) ruin the story? I certainly don't think so. Same applies with Part 5. I knew how Steel Ball Run was going to end because a friend of mine has the loosest lips in recorded history, but I still found it to be an extremely entertaining and engaging story.

Point is, don't let these "major spoilers" get to you too much. The surprise may be marred a bit, but there's still some really amazing fights in Part 5 that go completely unmentioned in EoH, so it's not like one bad apple spoiled the bunch (for lack of a better idiom).

After two weeks of flaccidity, we finally get to wake up feeling horny...feels nice!

...Even though I might not have time to watch the episode today.


EDIT: They're not doing the sound effect versions of the openings anymore, right?

That’s good to know! Yeah oddly enough with that game the thing that I was most worried about being spoiled by was the final fight and that wasn’t touched on. The biggest thing about this show is how all the fights get resolved and I can’t wait to see the solutions to them. Also knowing the fates of certain characters will create some creeping tension to the fights now :)

You've seen tiny ghost rat manned turrets
Now you have ghost fishing rods

How fares you common sense and sanity?

For those who don't know

Coco Jumbo (Coco Large) is actually a Song by the Band - Mr President.


As for the two other musical references:

Beach Boy is Named after the Band of the Same Name- Beach Boy


Grateful Dead is Named After The Band of the Same Name - Grateful Dead

wow, that episode was absolutely amazing. One of the best of the entire series. It reminded me of the episodes where Jotaro and Koichi first encounter Kira at the dry cleaners. So fucking tense!

I mean Chase became DIU's second OP on Episode 15 so it's possible it will be next episode
It would make absolutely no sense unless DP is throwing random OP for the hell of it. I think it's much better that this part remains with 2 OP with the second playing halfway through à la part 3

Also this episode was great, I'm really excited to see what happens next. Mista going solo is going to be one hell of a challenge for him
 
What a fuckin awesome episode !!! Next one promise to be golden too !
Mista is my favorite character from this arc, can't wait to see the fight.

It's crazy how this adaptation is fuckin great. This arc is, in manga, by far the one I like the less. But this adaptation is so great, it's the best season so far.
Best episode of the season for me.
