JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure - Part 5: Golden Wind
Opening: “Traitor’s Requiem” by Daisuke Hasegawa
Ending: "Modern Crusaders" by Enigma


Giorno Giovanni
Voiced by: Phillip Reich
Stand: Golden Wind (JP: Gold Experience)
Abilities: Life Giver and Life Shot
Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - A / Range - C / Persistence - D / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - A
Namesake: Giorno (Italian for “day”) / Gold Experience (album by Prince)
Born Haruno Shiobana, Giorno is the son of the vampire DIO (using Jonathan Joestar’s body) and a Japanese woman. Inspired by a nice gangster who helped him as a child, Giorno has made it his mission in life to become part of the mafia and rise through its ranks to become its leader, determined to stop the drug trade that has targeted Italy’s youth. Sometime recently, his hair turned from black to blonde and he manifested a Stand known as Golden Wind, which has the ability to give anything it touches life. Giorno most often uses this ability to transform inanimate objects into living creatures.

Bruno Bucciarati
Voiced by: Ray Chase
Stand: Zipper Man (JP: Sticky Fingers)
Ability: Zippers
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - C / Persistence - D / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - D
Namesakes: “Buccellati” (Sicilian fig cookie) / “Sticky Fingers” (Rolling Stones album)
A member of the Passione mafia, Bruno is one of the more righteous members, sharing Giorno’s desire to uproot the organization from the inside. His Stand, Zipper Man, can create zippers, which can either sever things in two or create pocket dimensions within objects that can hold either himself or other items.

Guido Mista
Voiced by: Sean Chiplock
Stand: Six Bullets (JP: Sex Pistols)
Abilities: Bullet Control and Enhanced Reloading
Stats: Destructive Power - E / Speed - C / Range - B / Persistence - A / Precision - A / Developmental Potential - B
Namesakes: “Insalata mista” (Italian for “mixed salad”) / Sex Pistols (British punk rock band)
Mista is the laid-back member of Team Bucciarati, the most sociable and carefree with a desire for an easy life, a calmness that helps him to focus even in the heat of battle. At the same time, he is the most prone to casual violence for the pettiest of reasons. Mista also has an intense phobia of the number four, refusing to get into situations where the number comes up. Mista’s Stand, Six Bullets, is a Colony Stand type made up of six bullet-like creatures (numbered 1 to 7, skipping 4) that can help guide and control the bullets shot out of Mista’s gun via rebounding shots mid-air, as well as reloading the gun for Misa. Despite being Stands, each of the Six Bullets have distinct personalities separate from their user, can have conversations with Mista, and even eat food.

Narancia Ghirga
Voiced by: Kyle McCarley
Stand: Li’l Bomber (JP: Aerosmith)
Abilities: Machine Guns and Bombs, Carbon Dioxide Radar
Stats: Destructive Power - B / Speed - B / Range - B / Persistence - C / Precision - E / Developmental Potential - C
Namesakes: “Arancia” (Italian for “orange”) / Aerosmith (rock band)
Narancia is the most child-like member of Team Bucciarati, possessing a rather bratty personality. But he is incredibly loyal towards his friends, viewing them like family. His Stand, Li’l Bomber, takes the form of a small toy airplane with all the capabilities of a real fighter plane, including machine guns and bombs as weapons, as well as a radar that Narancia can use to track enemies via the carbon dioxide they exhale.

Trish Una
Voiced by: Lizzie Freeman
Stand: Spicy Lady (JP: Spice Girl)
Ability: Softening
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - C / Persistence - B / Precision - D / Developmental Potential - C
Namesakes: Trish Gott (American model) / “una” (Italian for “one”) / Spice Girls (British pop group)
The estranged daughter of the Passione’s boss, Trish never knew her father and lived the first 15 years of her life with her mother until her passing. After this, she found herself placed under the mob’s protection, switching hands until winding up in the care of Buccarati’s group. Now she is targeted by her own father and his personal assassins, who intends to snuff her out to ensure his identity remains secret. While on their journey, Trish has manifested her own Stand, Spicy Lady, who has the ability to soften any material it touches into a rubber-like consistency.

Vinegar Doppio
Voiced by: Griffin Burns
Stand: Epitaph (sub-ability of Emperor Crimson)
Ability: Precognition
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - E / Persistence - E / Precision - Unknown / Developmental Potential - Unknown
Namesakes: Vinegar (aqueous solution of acetic acid, often used in flavoring food) / Doppio (Italian for “double”) / Epitaph
Vinegar Doppio is the consigliere, underboss, of Passione, being the only one in the organization to report directly to the Boss and send out his orders. To most, Doppio appears to be a meek, cowardly teenager, and for the most part this is true. But when it comes to the Boss, Doppio is fiercely loyal and will do anything to serve him. In actuality, however, Doppio is really the Boss’s alter ego, a split-personality which allows him to move undetected while maintaining his anonymity. Doppio is completely unaware of this, but receives orders by talking to the boss through random objects that he believes are telephones. Doppio is able to use a portion of Emperor Crimson’s power, namely the precognition ability of Epitaph to see five seconds into the future, as well as briefly materialize Emperor Crimson’s arms for self defense.

The Boss
Voiced by: Kellen Goff
Stand: Emperor Crimson (JP: King Crimson)
Ability: Time Erasure and Precognition
Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - E / Persistence - E / Precision - Unknown / Developmental Potential - Unknown
Namesake: King Crimson (British rock band)
The Boss (real name unknown) is the elusive leader of the Italian mafioso gang known as Passione. His identity is a complete mystery that he intends on upholding at all costs, which has now been threatened upon the discovery of his long lost daughter Trish. His Stand, the terrifying Emperor Crimson, has the seemingly unstoppable ability to perceive ten seconds ahead into the future and erase the events that would have transpired during that time (example: If someone tries to shoot the Boss with a gun, the Boss can erase the moment that the bullet would have pierced his body and remain unharmed). No one other than the Boss is able to remember or perceive those ten seconds, and only the Boss can alter events during it.

Episodio 29 (142)
“Verso il Colosseo di Roma”
Chapters adapted: 551-554

Previously on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:
Risotto used his last bit of strength to grab the boss and attempted to trick Lil' Bomber into shooting the both of them, but Emperor Crimson erased the time in which the bullets were shot to avoid them, killing Risotto. The boss ate a nearby frog to regain some iron as Bucciarati and Narancia headed to the scene of the battle. Bucciarati and Narancia saw Risotto's corpse, then unexpectedly found a young boy tied behind a rock and missing blood, with his lips sewn together.

Meanwhile, Abbacchio used Moody Jazz to search through the past on the Costa Smeralda beach, trying to recreate the boss's face. After a while, he became distracted by a group of young soccer players trying to retrieve their ball from a tree. When he went to help them, he was mortally wounded by the boss, who impersonated one of the young boys. As Abbacchio died, he entered a dream-like state where he reunited with his deceased partner from the police force, who commended Abbacchio for his diligence in helping his friends.

When Bucciarati's group came across Abbacchio's corpse, Giorno discovered that just before Moody Jazz disappeared forever, Abbacchio used it to successfully recreate a death mask of the boss's face in a nearby stone pillar.

While Bruno and the team analyze the face and fingerprints left behind by Moody Jazz, they receive a mysterious call which leads them on a race to the Roman Colosseum.

It always looks like to me that Bucciarati has giant pill bugs in his hair.

"You must come to Rome. Don't worry, all roads lead to it."

He turned that ice cream cone into an ice cream phone.

Isn't this the plot of The Thing?

So...Stands are the result of an alien space virus? Sheesh. This is like Midi-Chlorians all over again.
