Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 40 review
D’Arby’s back! Or, at least, his brother is. And he’s going to start gambling with souls again! Yeah, not exactly a groundbreaking storyline.
But there is something different about it: this time, they’ll be playing video games with souls on the line. And the game they’re playing? None other than F-Zero X. Everything about the game is ripped exactly from F-Zero X, which makes it more interesting to me since I played that game to death. This sequence becomes fascinating to watch, especially since Joseph gives over-the-top reactions throughout.
And thus another solid Jojo episode. Jojo will never be a masterpiece, but it’s at least entertaining. I’d just appreciate some female characters that aren’t damsels in distress. Speaking of which, Jotaro is practically a damsel in distress in this episode. That’s par for the course for the useless Jotaro.
