JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has recently dived headfirst into the Stone Ocean, with Netflix introducing twelve new episodes to anime fans that walk us through the wild adventures of Jolyne Cujoh, the sixth part of the series is definitely one of the strangest to date and we managed to compile some of the wildest moments of the preliminary installments. While the franchise created by Hirohiko Araki has yet to reveal when we can expect new episodes of the adventures of Jolyne and her friends locked in Green Dolphin Street Penitentiary, fans are waiting with bated breath for its comeback.
Netflix, the streaming service that is the exclusive location to watch the current episodes of the Stone Ocean, and with the platform continuing to explore the world of anime via series such as Beastars, Baki, and many others. With all the previous seasons of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure now available, there are plenty of insane moments to explore within the bloodline of the Joestars and the various villains they’ve fought throughout time.
What was your favorite moment in Stone Ocean? When do you think we’ll see the series return with new episodes to Netflix? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Joestars.
One of the first enemy Stands that Jolyne found herself butting heads with was Goo Goo Dolls, the Stand of prisoner Gwess who had the ability to shrink its targets to the size of mice and generally vary the target’s size. With Gwess attempting to make Jolyne her pet, she requires the daughter of Jotaro Kujo to wear the skin of a dead rat and use her diminutive stature to break her free from prison. With Jolyne discovering a dead bird filled with the body parts of a guard, this definitely kicked off the series with a bang.
While the Enemy Stand User Johngalli might have a bizarre Stand that allowed him to fire bullets around nearly any corner in any direction, the posterior of the villain was featured in a shower scene and it was rather large. Fans of the series took notice of this scene and it’s perhaps the most notable moment of his appearances in the Stone Ocean, even though he came amazingly close to killing both Jotaro and Jolyne.
Ermes Costello had quite the Stand of her own in Kiss, but the prisoner of Green Dolphin Street Prison had a difficult time saving her own life while battling against the prisoner known as McQueen and his Stand known as Highway to Hell. Having the ability to transfer the injuries he received when he attempted to commit suicide, Ermes fought for her survival as she tried to get McQueen to stop from taking his own life. Needless to say, it made for quite the scene when McQueen would attempt to drown himself in a sink or hang himself in the prison bathroom.
When Jolyne and Ermes are sent outside of the prison walls to find a prisoner who had escaped, they were given bracelets that would explode if they wandered away from their guard, and while the concept of this system is nothing new in media, the fact that its called “Like A Virgin,” is what makes it so hilarious and bizarre. Ultimately, this adventure saw the two Stand wielders gaining a new friend in the being known as Foo Fighters, a Stand made of plankton that takes the body of a deceased prisoner.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how hilarious it is that “Marilyn Manson, Debt Collector,” was changed to “Mary Lynn Manson, Debt Collector,” in order to avoid copyright issues, but this Stand also threw quite the curveball to Jolyne, Ermes, and Foo Fighters. Stealing the organs of our heroes if they failed their wager of throwing a baseball back and forth a certain amount of times, Jolyne and her friends were forced to think on their feet to defeat Manson’s wielder in one of the biggest battles of the season.
In fighting against the gravity manipulating powers of Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Jolyne is joined by the Stand wielder Weather Report, who has a Stand of the same name, and granted the duo suits made of clouds in order to allow them to breathe and not be affected by the intense gravity around them. Weather Report’s weather manipulation proves itself to be able to pull off some wild tricks.
If Weather Report creating astronaut suits made of clouds wasn’t strange enough for you, the Stand wielder takes things up a notch by dropping poisonous frogs from the sky and nearly killing Jolyne and Pucci in the process. Luckily, Jolyne is able to save herself thanks to her employing the power of Stone Ocean, while Pucci makes a quick escape thanks to the power of Whitesnake at his beck and call. Needless to say, it’s one of the weirdest moments of Part Six and is one of the last major battles to end the first twelve episodes of Stone Ocean.
