JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 6: Stone Ocean Part 2
It has been torture to wait so long for a single part, but at least it was worth it, right? The second of the three parts is about the continuation of the fights in the prison and eventually the escape. More new bizarre fights, new stands, and chaos. This part of the season is worse than the first but still manages to entertain barely. It only becomes particularly appealing in the last 3 episodes.
Content-wise, this season is limited to 3-4 small fight events and the conclusion of the Prison Arc. It's nothing great and you can hardly say anything about it, as a single part hardly comes into value. As an overall show, you could say more about it.
The character arc of Ermes was pretty monotonous and boring, practically the new version of Polnareff's arc where he hunted the Hanged Man. Except that this one had significantly less charm and was heavily drawn out. Among other things, Sports Maxim didn't seem like a noteworthy antagonist.
Among all 3 parts of this season, this part suffered the most from the weak pacing, which made the episodes hardly dynamic and exciting. In the fight against the stand "Survival," this was only particularly brought to light. Everything from this point on was just weak, even for a JoJo fan like me.
I really can't say more about this part, they shouldn't have even released it as a single season. Not only did it embody 2 of the most boring fights of this Manga, but it also had very slow pacing. And since Ermes was also the most boring character of the troupe, it got even worse.
Of course, the part still managed to entertain me to some extent, but the difference in quality between the first and third was noticeable.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean - Part II" escalates the thrilling narrative established in the first part, diving deeper into the complexities of Green Dolphin Street Prison and the malevolent forces at play. As Jolyne Cujoh's quest to clear her name and confront her family's legacy intensifies, the series expands its exploration of themes such as freedom, identity, and the intricate web of fate that binds the Joestar lineage. This continuation not only solidifies Jolyne's position as one of the most dynamic protagonists in the franchise but also introduces a cadre of allies and adversaries whose unique Stands and motivations enrich the overarching battle against unseen forces manipulating their destinies.
