Due to the slow ass loading of the ep. either cuz of Crunchy or my net I had to spend a damned 45 minutes to watch this episode but holy shit
OH MY GOD THAT THING WITH THE CAR.
THE MOST JOJO SHIT EVER.
PRAISE BE DAVID PRO.

At first I was against this expansion of this group, but now I like it.

Man this episode was sooo good. The Flashback is 10/10. Honestly with all these anime original scenes - this is hands down the best JoJo Adaption as long as they don't falter

So umm, this thread doesn't show on my watched threads anymore :/

I really liked the episode, the animation quality is back to being very good, the variations of Aerosmith' theme are killer and makes me so excited for the OST to come out this month

Well yeah, it's a nice twist that Formaggio is the protagionst of this episode which is why they decided to move up the Execution Squad's backstory to this episode. They really wanted an episode to focus on them
They're making really good changes that I enjoy a lot. You can see they're building something up rather than just going through the "stand of the week" formula. It feels like we've reached another stage of Vento Aureo since Formaggio's reveal.

It's also a good ass fight so far. Anyone disappointed by Kraftwerk can let a sigh of relief.

Honestly, Aerosmith to L'il Bomber might be the worst name change in the series. Maybe Sex Pistols to Six Bullets is slightly worse but its one of those two.

I kinda like the role swap in this fight where the villain is being hunted and trying to figure out what the protagonists stand does since the villains stand is rather obvious.

I have a feeling some fans might be mixed on introducing all of the members on the Execution Squad early but personally i really liked it. The Execution Team is easily the best minor villains in JoJo so to see them get more screentime/interactions is more than welcome.

Oh shit forgot about this today.

Smash Bro hype is crazy y'all.
True, i have been playing it all day

Let's go into the Food Names/Italian References:

Risotto Nero - Risotto is an Italian Rice Dish but since his name is Risotto Nero - it is a specfic type of Risotto dyed in Sellipo Ink

Illuso doesn't have a food name unless i remember incorrectly but it's Deluded in Italian

Pesci is the Italian Word for Fish

Proscuitto is a specific type of Ham Dish

Melone is the Italian Word for Melon

Ghiaccio is the Italian Word for Ice.

Dude wtf half this ep was original content.
That's not a bad thing though. David Production is expanding and improving on the manga

When you think about it - the Assassin Squad is not that much different from our protagonists. They have a very valid reason for wanting to find the boss considering he set his men to kill two of their own.

WHAT THE FUCK AT THAT CAR SCENE. Holy shit at all this new Squadra content! They didn't even need to do it, considering that La Squadra is already the best set of antagonists in the series as is

What in the name of jesus did I just watch. No seriously, what in the flying fuck. Expanded or not this shit was wild. That restaurant scene and then the Sorbet and Gelato story, I was not expecting that much brutality. Fucking elbaming liquid glass compartments. Fucking exploding bodies from hyper stretching. Fucking Villain of the Week Narancia viewpoint. I can't stop saying fuck because HOLY FUCK AT THIS EPISODE.

Yeah, this episode is so good and really makes me wonder how this got past Japan's censors. Also the WB version is going to be even more uncensored. Though it's not just the gore that makes this episode fantastic, it truly expanded on the Assassination Squad - while i love them in the manga, the anime version of the team is even better

That Gelato and Sorbet flashback was some Dexter shit. I mean......just......DAYUM

That car didn't seem so small that the person drinking it wouldn't have noticed it in clear liquid. But whatever, that scene was fucking awesome. The fucked up anime version of:

I can't fucking believe the Sorbet scene made it through the censors. This is something some of us were joking would just be non descript body parts or black boxes, but it's here in all of its fucked up glory

What's also great about this flashback is that it makes you understand the consequences of messing with the Boss. If Bruno's gang fail they will likely suffer the same fate as Sorbet and Gelato

I think this was the first episode I would say was outright boring for me. The battle was way too slow paced, and it felt disjointed with the backstory of the hitmen inserted into the conflict. For once, the constant exposition got to me, and I had about enough.

I personally disagree with you but i understand. The Hitman backstory was originally going to be later in the fight but i assume they wanted an episode to focus on Formaggio and the Squad

I just realised something - there are 9 Members of the Assassination Squad. Sorbet's Body was split into 36 Art Pieces. 36/9 = 4. That's right - the unlucky 4 strikes again

How you watch this eps and your impression of Narancia are he is dumb lol. He mightve not a book smart but he a clever kid that adapt fast.

Btw great eps.. that cliffhanger is nasty

Narancia is in my opinion more intelligent than Okuyasu. Narancia is very book dumb, but he's battle smart. He knows the in and outs of how his stand works and is able to fight around that.

Narancia's like the first JoJo ally who's been the one to instigate "first one to die, loses" rules in a Stand fight. So that's pretty good, I would say.

Pretty reminiscent of the way MadHouse was introducing the Chimera Ants, but I might prefer this more since they're not leaving things out and actually adding to it.

You could handle the exposition in the last episode, but this was no good?

Last episode had a lot going on. The exposition wasn't the usual battle exposition of, "I'm going to scream out loud about what is happening and what I'm doing for longer than I'm going to actually show myself doing it."

There were a bunch of new characters introduced. There was the revelation that the boss has a daughter. I got to see how Narancia handles himself on his own for the first time, and also discover what his stand is. There was the introduction to a new enemy, and also what his stand is. There were several interactions with the main cast, seeing Bucciarati hand off the treasure and get promoted, etc.

Pretty much nothing happens in this episode. The hitmen backstory was good, but it interrupted the fight in an awkward way where I already just wanted to see where it was going because I felt it was stalling too much. I just want to see the fight's resolution instead of being engrossed in it at this point.

I'm gonna be real with you guys.

I wasn't feeling this episode.....right until the flashback started! Holy hell! The Hitman Team looks wild.
We joke about JoJo characters being fashion models, but those outfits are beyond "bizarre".
One of them looks like a carrot. lol Reminds me of the wide neck guy.

Sorbet and Gelato got done MAJOR DIRTY! Holy fuck! Araki hasn't lost his knack for creative kills.

The only reason Formaggio is still alive is due to partially dumb luck and Narancia not feeling a man the size of a Ken doll in his back pocket. lol
Only in JoJo can you have a tiny man riding on a rat while being chased by a small spirit airplane.
