Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 12 review
Joseph appears to get a bug bite on his arm, except it looks like it has a face. Everyone laughs it off, and Joseph goes to get treatment for it. Then the object on his arm comes to life, kills the doctor who was treating it, and makes life miserable for Joseph. Joseph gets accused of murdering the doctor, by a hilarious voice coming from the Stand which tries to impersonate him. And now his arm is taken over by this Stand.
So Joseph has to fight off the Stand, and he finds away to use his own Stand to make a map of the whole city, then find a barrel of coal tar to sink the bad Stand into. The Stand freezes up, giving Joseph the chance to finish it off. It turns out the Stand user was a girl who Polnaroff was flirting with. And at the end, Polnaroff feels like he would have rather had the battle than have his heart broken.
Brilliant episode. If Jojo was like this every week, it would be amazing. As it is, it’s still pretty good.
