Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 39 review
Iggy wins his fight against the bird, but not before a montage of his life that makes the viewer think he’s about to die. Actually I never thought that, so it came off as pretty humorous, and for once I don’t think it was unintentional humor. Unfortunately, my computer is not buffering the videos very well, so my view of Iggy’s battle was very disjointed.
Kakyoin rejoins the crew, and this episode proves just how little he means to the story. While Kakyoin was gone, the series didn’t miss a beat. He really is useless. The story only really needs Joseph and Polnareff. The other three are expendable. In any case, they’re into Dio’s castle, and hopefully Dio doesn’t hang around as long as Naraku. I’m not really sure why everyone thinks Dio is the greatest villain ever; these upcoming episodes will have a chance at proving that to me.
