Our heroes make a stop in a mysterious, foggy town, where Enyaba and her Justice Stand lie in wait.
Blahblahblah monster of the week, blahblahblah Enya, blahblahblah Polnareff, blahblahblah Star Platinum saves the day.
Seriously though, we get a pretty entertaining couple of episodes as Enya Geil takes center stage as what is effectively the boss of Stardust Crusaders Disk 1. The bulk of episode 14 is a slow, methodically paced horror story, with our heroes stopping for the night in a strange creepy town with a bunch of gross, apathetic citizens. It’s a massive departure from JoJo‘s usual wild and bombastic tone, and it works well for the most part. It can be difficult to keep up the tension of facing some heretofore unknown Stand ability, since it’s what the show always does, but it works this time with the build-up and the atmosphere.
For better or worse, there’s still a good amount of comedy throughout these two episodes. Joseph completely failing at the local greeting was absolutely hilarious, and while the scene of Polnareff being utterly oblivious was drawn out a bit too much, it’s just so stupid and cringe-worthy that it can’t help but stay at least mildly funny. I guess almost all of episode 15 was dragged out, though; there’s the distinct feeling that they didn’t have quiiite enough material to do two full episodes, but there was too much to cram into one. It all more-or-less works out in the end, though, and we depart with the promise of another two-parter episode coming up. If things go as I remember from the manga, we should be in for a treat.
