There's a lot of subtle fun with Diavolo. I actually like how King Crimson did Diavolo's talking for him, you'd never get this with Dio and Za Warudo. The scene where you have KC pleading with Bruno to let him have the arrow was fucking great.While obviously not the same, I feel like Part 5 is a much more refined Part 3 as far as a “chase” monster of the week formula. I’m not a huge fan of it and always preferred smaller scope, cast, and stronger serializing, but I’ve enjoyed Part 5 in ways I enjoyed Part 3 without having its failings. The stand fights are more creative and while I still feel the cast is larger than it needs to be/should be, I like the interactions more here than Part 3. I just see a lot of parallels between the two parts and realized Part 5 was just a better Part 3 to me.
As fun as DIO is, I’ll never really untie my disappointment of how he was handled in Part 3 from the rest of that part either.
