|In April 1999, roughly ten years after his battle against the evil vampire Dio, Jotaro Kujo travels to the town of Morioh to look for a boy named Josuke Higashikata. After first running into a timid boy named Koichi Hirose, Jotaro comes across Josuke as he fights with some upperclassmen who injured a turtle and insulted his hairstyle, discovering that he possesses a Stand that has the power to heal wounds. Jotaro then introduces himself, revealing to Josuke that he is the illegitimate son of his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, thus technically making him Jotaro's uncle. When Jotaro inadvertently insults his hairstyle, Josuke brings out his Stand Crazy Diamond[d] against Jotaro, who narrowly avoids serious injury thanks to his Star Platinum's ability to temporarily stop time. Afterwards, Jotaro warns Josuke about a dangerous Stand user and serial killer named Anjuro "Angelo" Katagiri who is hiding out in town. The next day, as Josuke encounters a convenience store robbery, he steps in after his hair is insulted again and uses Crazy Diamond to save the store clerk and implant the robber's knife inside the man's own body. Just then, Josuke discovers that the robber was being possessed by Angelo's Stand, Aqua Necklace, who threatens to kill Jotaro and his family.|

Despite using Crazy Diamond's ability to heal Ryohei's wounds, Josuke is saddened to discover that his power can't bring back those who have already died. As Josuke and Jotaro spend the next few days thinking of a plan to stop Angelo, they become surrounded after a rain storm floods the house, allowing Aqua Necklace to move freely through puddles and mist. Angelo attempts to kill Josuke by sending Aqua Necklace through a humidifier into his mouth, but Josuke traps it in a rubber glove he had swallowed earlier.

|Angelo reveals to Josuke and Jotaro that he received his Stand ability from a man in a school uniform who shot him with a mysterious bow and arrow, mentioning Dio's name. Angelo attempts to use this discussion to distract the two and attack a nearby child with Aqua Necklace, but Josuke further merges him with the rock, permanently transforming him into the "Angelo Stone". Realizing that the bow and arrow may be what originally gave Dio his Stand, Jotaro decides to stay in Morioh to investigate. The next day, as Josuke and Koichi pass by what should be an abandoned house near Josuke's house, Koichi is attacked by the Nijimura brothers, Okuyasu and Keicho, the latter of whom shoots an arrow through Koichi's neck. Before Josuke can rush to Koichi's aid, he is confronted by Okuyasu, whose Stand The Hand can scrape away anything its right hand touches and instantly close the gap left afterwards. However, Josuke uses this to his advantage by tricking Okuyasu into removing the space between him and some potted plants, which launch towards him and knock him out, allowing Josuke to move on inside the house.|

Keicho explains that he had been creating new Stand users in the hopes of finding an ability that can kill his father, who has been doing nothing but searching through an old chest. Using Crazy Diamond's ability, Josuke discovers that the father was searching for a torn up photograph of his family, hinting that he still retains memories of his old life. Just as Josuke offers to help Keicho and Okuyasu find a way to cure their father in exchange for the bow and arrow, Keicho is attacked by the electrical Stand, Red Hot Chili Pepper,[f] who steals the bow and arrow and kills Keicho by dragging him through an electrical outlet.

Nearby, the cat's alleged owner Tamami Kobayashi tries to blackmail Koichi into paying for the cat, bringing out his Stand The Lock to literally weigh Koichi down with his own guilt. Okuyasu and Josuke soon arrive to help him, but Kobayashi tricks Okuyasu into feeling guilty for punching him and knocking him down and falling under the thrall of The Lock. However, Josuke discovers that the cat was fake and also heals Kobayashi's injuries, freeing both Koichi and Okuyasu from their locks, though Kobayashi still gets away with all of Koichi's money. Upon arriving home, Koichi is shocked to find Kobayashi, who tricks his mother into thinking Koichi had stolen from him and puts both her and Koichi's sister under The Lock's power. Koichi's anger towards Kobayashi leads his Stand egg to hatch into Echoes,[g] which initially appears to have no physical strength. However, Kobayashi discovers Echoes' true ability is to plant literal sound effects on whatever it touches, driving him crazy with repeated sounds. Kobayashi tries to take his revenge by tricking Koichi's mother and sister into thinking Koichi had stabbed him, aiming to drive Koichi's mother to kill herself. However, Koichi manages to use Echoes' ability to convince his mother to believe in him, ultimately freeing both her and his sister from The Lock's power.

Just as Yukako falls towards some sharp rocks below, she is saved thanks to bouncy sound effects already placed there by Koichi, turning them into harmless springs.

Growing suspicious, Josuke discovers that Tonio had been supplementing his dishes with his Stand, Pearl Jam,[k] and goes to confront him. After a brief scuffle, Josuke discovers that Tonio had only acted hostile towards him for not washing his hands before entering his kitchen, revealing that he really does simply want to help his customers. Tonio explains that he senses maladies his customers may be ailing from, and creates dishes that he infuses with Pearl Jam, which heals the customers' maladies and improves their health. Tonio then puts Josuke to work scrubbing the kitchen for his actions. Meanwhile, Jotaro meets with a representative of the Speedwagon Foundation, who informs him Joseph Joestar is on his way to Morioh.|

Despite Crazy Diamond's show of strength and speed, Chili Pepper manages to show off his own strength before retreating. The next day, Jotaro calls on Josuke, Okuyasu, and Koichi to inform them that Joseph, whose Hermit Purple Stand can potentially detect Chili Pepper's user, is due to arrive at the port. Just then, Chili Pepper appears from Okuyasu's motorcycle's battery, having heard the whole conversation, and attempts to escape only to be stopped by Okuyasu. Despite being severely weakened, Chili Pepper manages to goad Okuyasu into attacking him once more, unearthing an underground electrical cable and allowing him to regain his strength. After cutting off Okuyasu's arm, Chili Pepper drags the rest of his body into the cable. Luckily, Josuke manages to use Crazy Diamond on Okuyasu's severed arm, which takes his body away from Chili Pepper before he can be killed and heals him, before Josuke and Jotaro head to the port to save Joseph from the ambush.|

Angered, Otoishi uses all the electricity in Morioh Town in order to power Chili Pepper up. However, Josuke manages to trap Chili Pepper in a tire and trick into bursting out, causing the air inside to blow him into the ocean, upon which the combination of the ocean's size and the conductivity of saltwater cause the electricity-based Stand to dissolve.

The moment they do, however, they fall under the power of Rohan's Stand, Heaven's Door, which allows him to open their bodies like a book and read all of their secrets. After learning of Koichi's encounters with Stand users, Rohan writes a safety lock in one of Koichi's pages, preventing Koichi from attacking him. He then proceeds to take pages from both Koichi and Hazamada as material for his manga, leaving them with no memory of what just happened.

As Koichi is once again pursued, Echoes evolves into its third form, Echoes Act 3, using its new ability, to increase Sheer Heart Attack's weight and stop its movements. Feeling the weight of the attack on his left hand, Kira is forced to go off to retrieve his bomb.|

|While Josuke and Okuyasu make their way to the scene, Kira appears before Koichi, knocking him out of Act 3's range and undoing the gravity on Sheer Heart Attack. Taking advantage of Act 3's limitations, Kira brutally beats Koichi, who uses the opportunity to learn Kira's real name. Just as Kira deals a lethal blow to Koichi and prepares to kill him using Killer Queen, Jotaro manages to stand up long enough to stop Kira and give him a pummeling. As Josuke arrives with Okuyasu to heal Jotaro and Koichi, Kira, having failed to pass himself off as an innocent bystander, chops off his own hand to set Sheer Heart Attack loose and escape. Using Crazy Diamond's ability to have Sheer Heart Attack reunite with Kira's hand and try to rejoin his body, Josuke and the others follow it to Salon Cinderella, where they discover Kira has killed Aya after forcing her to replace his face with another person, allowing him to take on a new identity and hide once again.|

Just then, a camera takes a picture of them containing the ghost of Kira's late father, Yoshihiro. Using his Stand, Atom Heart Father, Yoshihiro traps Josuke and Jotaro within the confines of the photograph, with any damage done to the photo dealt to them as well. Jotaro manages to trick Yoshihiro into taking a picture of himself, freeing Josuke and Jotaro while trapping Yoshihiro inside a separate photograph. However, Yoshihiro manages to trick Okuyasu into setting him free, managing to retrieve another arrow that Kira had in his possession as he makes his escape. Elsewhere, Kira begins living under the new identity of the man whose face he stole, Kosaku Kawajiri, moving into his house with his wife Shinobu and their son Hayato.|

|Yoshihiro decides to use the arrow to make more Stand-wielding allies, first using it on a boy named Ken Oyanagi. Ken then pesters Rohan to play Janken with him, losing his first match after Rohan uses Heaven's Door to figure out his move. As Ken continues to force Rohan to play Janken with him and manages to win his third match against him, his Stand, Boy II Man,[m] appears and tries to suck in Heaven's Door. Rohan soon learns that Ken's Stand allows him to steal energy from others and keep it if he wins three times out of five, discovering that he has already gained a third of Heaven's Door's ability. Ken then wins the fourth match, gaining more of Heaven's Door's ability and evening the score. After holding on with a pair of ties, Rohan manages to win his third match and retrieve Heaven's Door after borrowing Shizuka the invisible baby from Joseph and having her change what Ken attempted to throw out. Ken attempts to kill himself by jumping in front of a truck, but Rohan manages to use his own brand of luck to save him, convincing Ken to stop using his Stand for evil.|

|Josuke and Okuyasu come across a peculiar person named Mikitaka Hazekura, who claims to be an alien named Nu Mikitakazo Nshi. Believing his claims to be a joke, Josuke initially suspects Mikitaka of being a Stand user when he exhibits some strange abilities. However, upon being distressed by the sound of sirens, Mikitaka suddenly transforms his body into a pair of sneakers and flees with Josuke, who suspects he might not be a Stand user as he cannot see Crazy Diamond. Looking to take advantage of Mikitaka's shape-shifting ability, Josuke has him transform into some dice and challenges Rohan to a game of Cee-lo in the hopes of winning some money off of him. As the match begins, Josuke grows worried when Mikitaka seems to get suspiciously ideal rolls.|

|Becoming suspicious of Josuke's winning streak, Rohan stabs his own finger, staking 2million yen against Josuke's own finger to determine how he is cheating while also calling upon Kobayashi as an official to prevent Josuke from playing normally. Just as Mikitaka becomes unnerved by sirens and starts to lose his transformation, Rohan is distracted upon discovering he had accidentally set his house on fire, allowing Josuke to escape without being discovered. Meanwhile, Hayato, who has been using hidden cameras to spy on his parents, becomes suspcious of the man posing as his father. The next day, while riding a bus through a tunnel with Josuke, Rohan spots a window to a room revealing a man cutting off a woman's hand, believing it to be Kira. Returning to inspect the tunnel, Rohan discovers the room to be an illusional trap, suddenly finding himself attacked by a nutrient-sucking Stand named Highway Star.[n] When Josuke comes to the tunnel, Highway Star tries to use Rohan to lure Josuke into his room so he can track his scent. As Josuke ignores Rohan's warnings and enters the room anyway, Rohan sends him flying out of the tunnel, urging him to flee from Highway Star and find his user.|

While Josuke makes his way to the hospital while keeping ahead of Highway Star, Koichi manages to find out the identity of its user, Yuya Fungami. Despite being caught by Highway Star upon reaching Yuya's room, Josuke manages to recover his nutrients with an IV drip, healing Yuya's injuries so he can pummel him without guilt.

After being buried in the garden, the cat mysteriously comes back to life in the form of a strange plant known as Stray Cat, possessing the ability to control air. Discovering Stray Cat to be the cat from earlier and realizing it has a strong grudge against Shinobu, Kira ends up shielding her from its attacks, eventually stopping it by appealing to its cat-like nature. The next day, Hayato discovers Stray Cat while investigating the attic, coming under attack after he exposes him to sunlight.

|Yoshihiro, recognising Kira in his new appearance, notices he is being followed by Hayato. Later, on July 15th, Josuke and Okuyasu come across Mikitaka, who spots a Stand user named Toyohiro Kanedachi living on an electrical pylon. When Josuke spots Yoshihiro with him, he steps inside the pylon and falls under the spell of Kanedachi's Stand, Superfly, becoming trapped inside until someone else takes his place. Josuke and Okuyasu attempt to destroy the pylon, only to discover it reflects out any damage it receives. Wanting to help, Mikitaka confronts Kanedachi, helping Josuke to escape but becoming trapped himself.

|Rohan is greeted by Masazo Kinoto, an architect sent to evaluate the damages done to his house, using Heaven's Door to find nothing suspicious besides an aversion to people looking at his back. Meanwhile, Josuke climbs up the pylon to rescue Mikitaka and confront Kanedachi, who uses calculative cuts on the pylon to attack Josuke from all angles. However, Josuke manages to use Crazy Diamond's healing ability to send the bolts of energy back to their origin and defeat Kanedachi. Resigning himself to stay inside the pylon, Kanedachi reveals that he heard Yoshihiro say that another Stand user has allegedly eliminated Koichi. Enlisting Yuya's help in tracking Koichi's scent in exchange for healing his injuries, Josuke encounters the Stand user, Terunosuke Miyamoto, who suddenly disappears and is replaced by an unconscious Tomoko. Unbeknownst to Josuke, Miyamoto had used his Stand Enigma[o] to turn Koichi and Tomoko into pieces of paper after witnessing their ticks when they are afraid, and is now waiting to observe Josuke's tick.|

The moment he does, however, a Stand possessing its own will named Cheap Trick[p] bursts from Kinoto's back and attaches himself to Rohan's back instead, demanding that he burn the pictures he had taken of Kira suspects. Meanwhile, Miyamoto reveals that he has trapped Koichi in a piece of paper, managing to goad Josuke into biting his lip, leading him to fall under Enigma's power and becoming trapped as well as a result. Despite initially not wanting to get involved, Yuya becomes moved by Josuke's resolve and goes after Miyamoto, encountering several paper-hidden traps that eventually culminates in a shredder that threatens to shred both Josuke and Koichi. Despite being overcome by fear and falling under Enigma's power, Yuya manages to take advantage of his now paper-like state to reach into the shredder and free Josuke and Koichi.

Despite this, Rohan succeeds in his ultimate goal to lure Cheap Trick into Reimi's Ghost Alley and trick him into turning around, leading him to get dragged into Hell by the alley's hands as a result.

As Kira becomes anxious over what he should do, he is suddenly impaled by Yoshihiro's arrow, giving Killer Queen a new ability. The next morning, Hayato appears alive and well, as if nothing had happened to him the previous night, noticing Kira has a strange confidence about his position. Later that morning, Hayato comes across Rohan, who uses Heaven's Door to read his memories. After reading several pages predicting occurrences moments before they happen, Rohan comes across a page revealing Kira's identity. It is at this moment, however, that Kira activates the third bomb that he had implanted in Hayato, Bites the Dust, which is set to kill anyone who learns about Kira's identity through Hayato.

When Josuke, Jotaro, Koichi, and Okuyasu arrive at the scene shortly afterwards, Hayato attempts to kill himself to avoid being found out. However, he is stopped by Killer Queen, who sets off Bites the Dust in Josuke and the others and once again returns Hayato to the start of the morning. Realising that the only way to save everyone is to either kill Kira or force him to undo Bites the Dust, Hayato hides Stray Cat in his backpack, launching a surprise attack on Kira when he follows him later in the morning. However, because of a slight alteration of events due to Hayato's actions, Kira manages to protect himself from Stray Cat's attack with a watch he had put in his jacket.|

Needing Killer Queen to protect himself, Kira is forced to undo Bites the Dust, preventing Rohan from being killed by its effects. Engaging in battle against Josuke and Okuyasu, Kira manages to retrieve Stray Cat and use its air shots to create invisible remote bombs, dealing heavy damage to Okuyasu. As Josuke tries to reach Okuyasu in order to heal him, Hayato deduces that Okuyasu's body might have been turned into a bomb, leaving Josuke with the tough decision of whether to sacrifice himself to save Okuyasu. However, Hayato, deducing that Kira can only set off one bomb at a time, sets off the bomb on himself, allowing Josuke to heal both him and Okuyasu. As Kira launches another air bomb, Josuke, refusing to believe Okuyasu might already be dead, manages to use Crazy Diamond on the road debris in his wounds to dodge the explosion and retreats into a nearby house with Hayato and Okuyasu.|

Noticing Kira carrying a cell phone with him, Josuke deduces that Yoshihiro had been hiding in Hayato's pocket, informing his son of their location, and tricks Kira into killing him instead. Josuke then draws Kira into a close quarters fight, but Stray Cat manages to protect Kira from Crazy Diamond's attacks. Just as Josuke is about to be hit by another air bomb, he is saved by a very much alive Okuyasu, who retrieves Stray Cat from Kira, driving him further into a corner as Jotaro and the others arrive on the scene.|
