Josuke uses his Stand Crazy Diamond[e] to alter a target's atomic structure. Jotaro tells Josuke that he is the illegitimate son of Jotaro's grandfather Joseph Joestar and will receive some of Joseph's inheritance.

Angelo disguises Aqua Necklace as Cognac and kills Josuke's grandfather Ryohei—the man that arrested Angelo—who drinks from the bottle. Though Josuke uses Crazy Diamond to restore Ryohei's body, he cannot bring him back from the dead. Josuke and Jotaro wait out Angelo at Josuke's house for three days before realizing that he was biding his time until a rainy day. The two are overwhelmed by Aqua Necklace freely moving through puddles and steam until Josuke tricks it into entering a rubber glove he secretly swallowed.

|After being fused into stone, Angelo reveals to Josuke and Jotaro that he received his Stand ability before his execution when a man in a school uniform shot him with a centuries-old bow and arrow, mentioning the name of the Joestar family's enemy, DIO. Angelo attempts to use this discussion to distract the two and attack a nearby child with Aqua Necklace. When Angelo insults Josuke's hair, Josuke completely fuses Angelo with the stone. Realizing that the bow and arrow may be what originally gave DIO his Stand, Jotaro decides to remain in Morioh to investigate. The next day, Josuke and Koichi pass by a derelict house where the former is jumped by Okuyasu Nijimura as his older brother Keicho fires an arrow through Koichi's neck. Josuke is kept from reaching Koichi's aid by Okuyasu, whose Stand The Hand can scrape away anything its right hand touches and instantly close the gap left afterwards. But 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. After Keicho drags Koichi inside the house, Josuke follows them.|

Josuke reenters the house and finds Koichi in a booby-trapped second floor room. Okuyasu repays the favor by closing the distance between Koichi and the door before going back outside to remain neutral. Josuke heals Koichi before the two attempt to escape from Bad Company, an entire army of toy soldiers complete with tanks and helicopters, as Keicho makes himself known once Koichi is revealed to have awakened a Stand. Keicho forces Koichi to bring out his Stand, which appears to just be a seemingly useless egg, he once again targets Josuke. Josuke uses Crazy Diamond's ability to fire Bad Company's own missiles back at Keicho.|

Keicho explains that he has been finding a Stand user who can kill his father, who cannot be killed by conventional means and seems obsessed with searching through an old chest. But upon seeing the chest's contents, Josuke uses Crazy Diamond to restore a torn up photograph of the Nijimura family, hinting that the father 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,[h] who steals the bow and arrow and kills Keicho by dragging him through an electrical outlet.

Josuke discovers that the cat was fake and heals Kobayashi's injuries, freeing both Koichi and Okuyasu from their locks, though Kobayashi gets away with Koichi's money. Upon arriving home, Koichi is shocked to find Kobayashi, who tricks Koichi's mother into thinking Koichi had stolen from him and puts both her and Koichi's sister under The Lock's power. Koichi's anger causes his Stand egg to hatch into Echoes,[i] whose ability is to plant literal sound effects on whatever it touches, driving Kobayashi crazy with repeated sounds.

The next day, Yukako becomes angered with the class representative for insulting Koichi, using her Stand Love Deluxe, which allows her to control her own hair, to attempt to burn the class rep alive. After Josuke and Okuyasu arrive to save the class rep, they warn Koichi about Yukako's Stand and encourage him to try and act like a delinquent so that she will lose interest.

As Koichi attempts to survive Yukako's fury until Josuke arrives, Echoes suddenly evolves into a new form, Echoes Act 2, which can turn the sound effects it writes into real actions when touched. Yukako endures several counterattacks from Act 2, but she is literally blown away onto a nearby cliff, which gives way underneath her. Just as Yukako falls towards some sharp rocks below, she is saved by bouncy sound effects already placed there by Koichi, turning them into harmless springs.

Upon trying each of Tonio's dishes, Okuyasu experiences violent reactions within his body, such as his eyes being squeezed of their moisture and his teeth launching out, only to find they have ultimately benefited him by curing his various maladies. Growing suspicious, Josuke discovers that Tonio had been supplementing his dishes with his Stand, Pearl Jam,[m] and confronts him. After a brief scuffle, Josuke discovers that Tonio had only acted hostile towards him for not washing his hands before entering the kitchen. Tonio reveals that he simply wants to help his customers. He 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 shows off his own strength before retreating. The next day, Jotaro calls on Josuke, Okuyasu, and Koichi to inform them that Joseph, whose Stand Hermit Purple can potentially detect Chili Pepper's user, is due to arrive at the port. Having heard the whole conversation, Chili Pepper appears from Okuyasu's motorcycle's battery and attempts to escape only to be stopped by Okuyasu. Despite being severely weakened, Chili Pepper goads Okuyasu into attacking him once more, unearthing an underground electrical cable which allows him to regain his strength. After cutting off Okuyasu's arm, Chili Pepper drags the rest of his body into the cable. Josuke uses Crazy Diamond on Okuyasu's severed arm, which takes his body away from Chili Pepper before he can be killed, and heals him.

Otoishi hides Chili Pepper in the underground wires to launch surprise attacks on Josuke from all directions, but Josuke turns the surrounding asphalt back into coal tar, allowing him to predict Chili Pepper's movements. Angered, Otoishi uses all the electricity in Morioh Town to power Chili Pepper up. However, Josuke traps Chili Pepper in a tire and tricks him into bursting out, causing the air inside to blow him into the ocean. The combination of the ocean's size and the conductivity of saltwater cause Chili Pepper to dissolve. Otoishi survives and sneaks onto Joseph's boat disguised as a member of the Speedwagon Foundation, but Okuyasu stops him when he decides to punch both Otoishi and the real Speedwagon Foundation member.

As the baby gets more upset and her Stand's powers strengthen, her stroller rolls away into a nearby river. Joseph, upset that Josuke sees him as a burden, slits open his wrist, using his blood to help Josuke find the baby in the river.

The moment they do this, 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. That night, Koichi senses something amiss when he discovers he has lost 20kg, but suddenly forgets about it just as he prepares to inform Josuke.

However, Josuke and Okuyasu deduce what is happening from a wound on Koichi's hand and head inside Rohan's house. Rohan uses his manuscript to put Okuyasu under Heaven's Door's power, writing an instruction that will cause him to commit suicide if Josuke tries to help him. Josuke attacks Rohan directly, closing his eyes to prevent himself from viewing his manuscript. Rohan insults Josuke's hairstyle to provoke him into opening his eyes, but this backfires as Josuke loses sight of everything in his rage. As Josuke beats Rohan to a pulp, Koichi explains that when Josuke was four years old, around the same time Jotaro and Joseph fought DIO,[g] he came down with a deadly fever. When Josuke and Tomoko got stuck in a blizzard on their way to the hospital, a student with a regent hairstyle helped them get moving, inspiring Josuke to copy his hairstyle and take offense to anyone who insults it. Josuke, still in a rage, further beats up a surrendering Rohan and wrecks his manga studio.|

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.|

|Josuke and the others search through Kira's house, learning that he had been keeping a record of his toenail clippings since his murder of Reimi. Just then, a camera takes a picture of them containing the ghost of Kira's late father, Yoshihiro. Using his Stand, Atom Heart Father,[p] Yoshihiro traps Josuke and Jotaro within the confines of the photograph, with any damage done to the photo dealt to them as well. Jotaro tricks Yoshihiro into taking a picture of himself, freeing Josuke and Jotaro while trapping Yoshihiro inside a separate photograph. Yoshihiro tricks Okuyasu into setting him free, retrieving another arrow that Kira had in his possession as he makes his escape.

|Yoshihiro uses the arrow to make more Stand-wielding allies, first using it on a boy named Ken Oyanagi. Ken then pesters Rohan to play rock paper scissors 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 rock paper scissors with him and wins his third match against Rohan, his Stand, Boy II Man,[q] 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. Rohan wins his third match and retrieves 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 saves 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 Mikitaka 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. 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 while staking two million yen against Josuke's finger to determine how he is cheating, calling 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 uses hidden cameras to spy on Kira. The next day, while riding a bus through the Futatsumori 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 the tunnel, Rohan discovers the room is an illusional trap. A nutrient-sucking Stand named Highway Star[r] attacks Rohan. 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, Rohan sends him flying out of the tunnel, urging him to flee from Highway Star and find the Stand user.|

|Believing there is a connection between Highway Star's user and the tunnel, Josuke contacts Koichi, who suspects the user is someone hospitalized from a traffic accident stealing nutrients to heal himself. While Josuke makes his way to the hospital while keeping ahead of Highway Star, Koichi identifies the Stand user as Yuya Fungami. Despite being caught by Highway Star upon reaching Yuya's room, Josuke recovers his nutrients with an IV drip and heals Yuya's injuries so he can mercilessly pummel him without any guilt. Meanwhile, at the Kawajiri household, Shinobu finds a cat hanging around the basement.|

|Upon discovering the cat has a hole in its throat, Shinobu sends Kira down to the basement after being unable to force the cat out. Shinobu learns she accidentally killed the cat when it got stabbed by glass shards. After being buried in the garden, the cat reincarnates as a strange plant known as Stray Cat, gradually piecing together what happened while learning it can manipulate compressed air. Stray Cat attempts to get revenge on Shinobu with Kira nearly getting himself killed. Kira appeals to Stray Cat's feline nature, and hides it in the attic after seeing its potential use to him. The next day, Hayato is attacked by Stray Cat when he exposed it to sunlight while investigating the attic. Hayato puts Stray Cat back to sleep and hides before being discovered by Kira, realizing the man is not his real father.|

|Yoshihiro, recognizing 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, Super Fly, 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. Meanwhile, as something troubling happens in the Higashikata household, Rohan, who had noticed Hayato's behavior, is approached by a strange man.|

|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. Josuke uses 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[s] to turn Koichi and Tomoko into pieces of paper after witnessing their tics when they are afraid, and is now waiting to observe Josuke's tic.|

|Overcome by his curiosity, Rohan lays a trap for Kinoto so he can see his back. The moment he does, Kinoto dies from his back ripping open as his self-aware Stand Cheap Trick[t] attaches to Rohan's back. Cheap Trick proceeds to hassle Koichi into burning the Kira suspect photos. Meanwhile, Miyamoto reveals that he has trapped Koichi in a piece of paper and traps Josuke after goading him into biting his lower lip. Despite initially not wanting to get involved, Yuya is 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 takes advantage of his paper-like state to reach into the shredder and free Josuke and Koichi. Receiving a pummeling from a vengeful Josuke, Miyamoto is trapped in the form of a book which Josuke later donates to the library.|

|Unable to get Koichi to take him seriously without risking either of their lives, Rohan attempts to reach the Morioh Grand Hotel without letting anyone see his back despite Cheap Trick's antics. Cheap Trick attempts to get several cats and dogs to attack Rohan and see his back, only for the animals to be shooed off by Koichi as he eventually believes Rohan's story. Koichi tries removing Cheap Trick using Echoes Act 3, only to discover that doing so will damage Rohan's back as well. Despite appearing to have gone insane as he shows his back to Koichi, Rohan reveals they are in Ghost Alley with Cheap Trick dragged away by the spectral hands with Rohan hoping the Stand ends up in Hell. Meanwhile, Hayato witnesses Kira killing a couple with his ability and catches it on film, something that Kira is quick to notice. Kira confronts Hayato and prepares to kill him, only for Hayato to reveal he has set up various cameras and videotapes that would threaten to expose his identity if Kira attempts to kill him or his mother.|

|Hayato's threat of exposing him infuriates Kira enough that he inadvertently killed the boy in a manner that would not look like an accident. Yoshihiro then appears and reveals that Rohan and the others now consider Kosaku Kawajiri a suspect and plan to visit, Kira refusing to leave Morioh despite being backed into a corner. Yoshihiro's arrow senses Kira's anxiety and impales him of its own will, entering his body while giving Killer Queen a new ability. The next morning, Hayato appears alive and well, believing he had a nightmare of being killed while noting Kira being strangely confident enough to reveal his true name as the man indirectly reveals the other Stand users' existence. Rohan intercepts Hayato on his way to school and uses Heaven's Door to read the boy's memories, ignoring a warning as he reads events that occur within seconds before reaching the page revealing Kira's identity. This made Rohan fall victim to the bomb Kira implanted in Hayato, Bites the Dust, which kills anyone who learns about Kira's identity through Hayato. As Rohan explodes, Hayato suddenly finds himself sent back in time to an hour earlier due to Bites the Dust's effects and realizes he is trapped in a time loop.|

|Realizing he is in a time loop, Hayato attempts to keep his distance from Rohan. But Kira, deducing that Hayato was already subjected to Bites the Dust, explains how he used his Stand's new ability to avert Hayato's death and make him the means of getting rid of his pursuers. Kira also reveals that anyone killed by his Stand's ability in the previous time loop still dies and that canceling the ability after such a death makes the event permanent, with Hayato forced to watch Rohan still explode. Hayato tries to avoid Josuke, Jotaro, Koichi, and Okuyasu when they arrived, but his forced suicide attempt is prevented by Killer Queen as he set up Bites the Dust. Ending up back in his room at 7:30 AM, Hayato realizes the only way of saving Josuke's group and his mother is by killing Kira or forcing him to cancel Bites the Dust before Rohan's death. The boy hides Stray Cat while intending to use his knowledge of events to catch Kira off guard, but the slight chances of events enabled Kira manages to protect himself from Stray Cat's attack with a watch he had put in his jacket.|

|As Kira brags about his victory to Hayato, who had secretly called Josuke to arrive a bit early while tricking the murderer into exposing himself. This forces Kira to cancel Bites the Dust in time to protect himself from Josuke, with Rohan's life saved as Okuyasu arrives. Despite being outmatched, Kira took advantage of Hayato bringing Stray Cat and places it in Killer Queen's body so his Stand can create invisible remote bombs with Okuyasu taking heavy damage. Josuke tries to reach Okuyasu and heal him, but Hayato deduces that Kira turned him into a bomb with Josuke conflicted over sacrificing himself to save Okuyasu. But Hayato, deducing that Kira can only set off one bomb at a time, sets off the bomb on himself with Josuke quickly restoring the boy and healing Okuyasu who seems to have died. Josuke refuses to accept Okuyasu died as he use Crazy Diamond on the road debris in his wounds to dodge Kira's airbomb as he and Hayato retreats into a nearby house, with Kira deeming Josuke as a true threat to himself.|

|Despite Josuke and Hayato hiding inside the house, Kira figures out Josuke's location with Josuke badly wounded after being caught in an explosion. But Josuke uses his hardened blood on a vase fragment to turn it into a homing bullet that hits the area on Kira's body with Josuke's blood on it. Josuke then notices Kira using a cell phone and realizes Yoshihiro had been hiding in Hayato's pocket to relay their position, with Josuke tricking Kira into killing father with an explosion that attracts attention. Josuke then draws Kira into a close quarters fight, but Stray Cat manages to protect Kira from Crazy Diamond's attacks. Josuke was about to be hit by another air bomb when Okuyasu suddenly appears and snatches Stray Cat from Killer Queen, with Kira driven further into a corner as Jotaro and the others arrive alongside emergency vehicles responding to the explosions.|

It seemed to have worked until Kira finds himself in Ghost Alley, Reimi reintroducing herself to her killer after having him remember that he died from being crushed under a moving ambulance after Koichi and Jotaro prevented him from triggering Bites the Dust. Despite Kira realizing he is in Ghost Alley, he is forced to look back when Arnold bites off his hand and is torn to pieces while dragged away by the spectral hands. No longer bound to her attachments, Reimi and Arnold bid farewell to everyone before moving on to the next life. The next day, Jotaro and Joseph return home as the summer of 1999 draws to a close for the residents of Morioh Town. Josuke sees Jotaro and Joseph off at the pier, and uses Crazy Diamond's abilities to prank Joseph and steal his wallet.|
