Oh, look. A power vacuum. I wonder how that happened. How Evil is the fifth episode of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind?
With Polpo’s “retirement,” the organization that Giorno’s fighting against needs to fill the void left in his absence. The search may be easier than it sounds. Bruno knows about a fortune left behind by his former boss. If he were to claim the fortune, he would easily take that spot. There is a small problem. though. Rumors of the fortune have been spreading.
I’ll get to that a little later, though. The first thing that happened was an introduction to what looks like the team for this series. They aren’t really much of a team right now, though. The first two we really get to meet are Fugo and Narancia. They start fighting almost as we’re introduced to them, with Fugo jabbing a fork into Narancia’s face.
Ah, it’s nice to see that the JoJo’s characters are as normal as ever. If that wasn’t crazy enough, one of the other guys, Mista, hates the number four with a passion. He gives a story example about a cat that was fourth in its litter scratching out someone’s eye… Yeah, I don’t really get his point. The last guy on the team, Abbacchio, tries to get Giorno to drink his urine. Yes, you read that right. Urine.
Giorno actually did drink it, too. Granted he used his stand on it so it wasn’t as bad. In fact, Giorno seems to have impressed them without even really trying. I see the protag is strong with this one. We also get to see my favorite tradition return, Bruno points out the obvious as he watches Narancia get dragged into a drain.
And in true JoJo fashion, the first enemy Stand-User quickly reduces the numbers on our hero’s side until there are just three left. With Bruno, Giorno, and Abbacchio being the only ones left in the fight, they need to come up with a plan quick. The only problem is that with Giorno being new to the gang, Abbacchio doesn’t trust him yet.
This prompts Giorno to do something stupid. Feeling that he needs to prove himself to Abbacchio, Giorno rushes headlong into danger to draw out the enemy Stand-User. Now get this. He did so without even knowing what Abbacchio’s Stand could even do. And as a result, he ends up dead. To be fair even if he did die right here, someone would have the ability to bring him back. No way they’re killing a new JoJo that quickly.
Overall, I’d say this episode is about as Evil as a Super Villian! (10). The first culling is over, so make sure that you check to see the shows that survived. This one obviously did. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
