Jojo SC 43: Stop killing the animals

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 43 review

Jojo SC 43

Let’s forget about the fact that this was, by Jojo‘s standards, a terrible episode. Pretty much the entire episode consisted of Polnareff complaining about what a bad situation he was in. There was little to no intelligence required of this episode, just Polnareff talking about Avdol being “dead” and how he had only three choices, the third of which was to end up getting killed.

Let’s instead focus on the fact that this show literally showed a guy beating the living daylights out of a dog for about 5 minutes straight. How does that improve the show in any way? If you want Iggy to die, fine, but don’t show actual animal abuse. That’s just wrong. Jojo has once again crossed the line into being offensive, and this time I’m not backing down. This show doesn’t know anything about good taste. Other shows manage to get by without showing a person kicking a dog a hundred times. Jojo should be able to as well.

When we pick up next episode, we come off two disappointing episodes in a row and the show back off the rails.
