If there’s one thing I can say about this team, it’s that they’re creative in the ways they use their Stands. How Evil is JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, episode 13?
I’m starting to like these 2-episode battles. These quicker fights are kind of nice. I’m glad this one wasn’t a solo battle too. It was refreshing to see the guys working together. Even though it wasn’t perfect teamwork, it’s a start. I also think it was interesting that the hit man they were fighting seemed to have a Stand that could defeat all of theirs combined.
Anyway, the battle picked up right where we left off. With Fugo about to get killed inside of the mirror world. Until Abbacchio ran off in the direction of the key that they came here for in the first place. Abbacchio’s running could actually be seen in the mirror world which leads the enemy straight to the key. He allowed only Abbacchio to enter his world while keeping his stand out… Or did he?
It turns out Abbacchio pulled a fast one and his Stand was dragged in instead. As you can imagine, this took the guy by surprise, providing Abbacchio’s Stand a chance to give the guy a good thrashing. Everything was looking great until the counter-attack happened and dragged Abbacchio into the mirror world.
This left Giorno and the key in the real world. Now, I’m no expert in tactical situations, but having most of your fighting force locked up in another dimension isn’t a good thing, right? Oh and Abbacchio got split in half along with his Stand and they get fused together forming two half-human Stand hybrids. Yeah, that got a little weird. Also, for some reason, Abbacchio had a hard time moving like that. I thought Stands were a part of their users so shouldn’t they be able to move just as easy that way? Anyway, Abbacchio did manage to get the key to Giorno right before he got trapped as well. When it seems Giorno’s about to get his neck sliced open, he reveals that he has infected himself with Fugo’s virus, using himself to poison the enemy.
Of course, in regular JoJo’s fashion, the bad guy just popped off his infected arm and jumped back into the real world. Fortunately, this was all a part of Giorno’s master plan. You see, Giorno had created a snake out of one of the bricks that had been hit by the virus. And they can use the snake to help Fugo hit the guy with his stand, which is still in the real world.
With the enemy dead, Giorno slowly melts into a pool of goo… or he would’ve if his stand didn’t have god-like abilities to create miracles. Remember that snake he created? Well because it made from a brick that had been hit with the virus it was born immune to it. So all Giorno had to do was extract some of its DNA and boom – instant cure.
Overall, I’d say this episode is about as Evil as a Super Villian! (10). If you have time check out what Voyager is covering. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
