For all the talk of honour we’ve seen in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, it was inevitable to get one rotten apple.
There’s nothing new here to talk about. Well…maybe the ending, but mostly there was a lot here that we’ve seen in previous episodes. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure does adhere to a strict formula with emphasis on honour, but there’s always one guy who just wants to win.
Another case of deja vu. Much like Jonathan paid respects to his foe Bruford, Joseph shows respect to Wham. There is no bad blood between warriors of honour – Joseph barely makes the grade – as Wham accepts his defeat with grace. Even going as far as protecting JoJo from the hoards of vampires attacking him right after his battle. This is how men should be! This is how some of us are.
The same cannot be said for the last pillar man standing: Cars. If Joseph can be compared to Jonathan, then Cars can be this saga’s Dio. In an even stranger twist, the phrase “What a dick!” resonates more when thinking about Cars than thinking about Dio’s moves. Say what you will about the latter, he at least had a cockiness which made him a more respectable fighter. Putting aside the sheer unmanliness of the actions, there was just so little respect – did he actually pretend Lisa Lisa’s leg was a guitar – and that’ll make for a satisfying beat down.
Guess that’s about it. I’ll assume many of you guessed Lisa Lisa’s background story or just weren’t surprised by it. In general, it’s hard to be shocked by any of the events in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. The more appropriate reaction would be “That sounds about right” whilst enjoying the over-exaggeration of it all. Sadly, there are only three episodes of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure left. Three episodes in which to enjoy the craziness.
