Hey, so, what’s more unsettling than a dude who turns your blood into razor blades? Turns out it’s a dude who can dismember himself with a scalpel as a combat tactic and his sidekick/gimp who eats mud. Yeah.

On this episode of JJBR, Luke explains to us how King Crimson actually works, and then we spend a few minutes considering the implications such a power has on the rest of the world.

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 this episode of JJBR, Bucciarati faces the Grateful Dead and Beach Boy in a life-or-death team train battle.

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.

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.
