On this episode of JJBR, Mista and Giorno enter the final stage of their fight against White Album, where Giorno reveals he never actually had a plan and Mista’s strategy is to nearly die again. Also, we are finally introduced to King Crimson and his infamous time shenanigans.
On this episode of JJBR, we cover the profoundly problematic Baby Face: a Stand with a really cool power and design, but a shockingly awful, uh, “creation” sequence. On the bright side, Giorno figures out a body-horror way to heal people, which is really what we were all waiting for. Also: ice powers are terrifying.
On this episode of JJBR, Bucciarati faces the Grateful Dead and Beach Boy in a life-or-death team train battle. Can his zipper powers defeat an aging virus and a fish hook what can dive under your skin and tear your heart up? Yes, he definitely can. Of course he can. But not before Mista totally dies. it sure is a shame we’ll never see Mista ever again.
On this episode of the rewatch, Giorno, Fugo, and Abbacchio have a fun field trip to the ruins of Pomepeii, where absolutely nothing could possibly go wrong. We discuss: the ambiguous physics of Mirror Worlds, Abbacchio being a lame edgelord, the evolution of Fugo’s fashion choices, and whether or not all this weirdness is starting to get to our good boy Giorno.
On this episode of JJBR, we find out that you can definitely make a shrinking episode that Luke will not care about. The trick is to make your antagonist very lame and include EXTREMELY problematic gay representation.
On this episode JJBR, we finish up Soft Machine with a reveal I never could have predicted, a very trippy torture sequence, and adorable bullet gremlins. Turns out that even in a world of weird-ass superpowers, having a gun is still pretty useful.
On this episode of JJBR, Luke, Ty, Ben and I spend a whole lot of time talkin’ ‘bout urine. Also: we prove that every plot element of JJBA is internally consistent and ruminate on the viability of a banana gun.
On this episode of JJBR, I bring in another cohost: my good friend Ty, who some of you may remember from Roll For Your Lives, the tabletop RPG podcast I did for a spell. We Bruno’s varied and unsettling use of zippers, extremely detailed face-punching, and falling in love with your enemy.
Just because Bakacast has switched to a different format doesn’t mean we’re abandoning JoJo’s reviews. We will never abandon JoJo’s reviews. Instead of putting it on the main show, though, I’m bringing JoJo’s Bizarre Rewatch back from hiatus, with Luke and Ben joining me as my cohosts. Please ignore all the episodes in between that we never covered on JJBR.
On this episode of Bakacast, we ring in the strangely anti-climatic end Princess Principal. Also, we spend a good chunk of time contrasting the how poorly Rage of Bahamut attempts to handle moral ambiguity with how well Shoukaku no Altair approaches similar topics. Also, Ben and I finally get around to talking in-depth about the strengths and weakness of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable.
