England 1868. A thief named Dario Brando was raiding an overturned carriage when he and is wife find two surviving occupants, a man and his young son are still alive. The man, George Joestar, assuming Dario saved his life, claims he will forever be indebted to him. Twelve years later, George's son Jonathan, nicknamed JoJo, is a young man with the intent to become a gentleman, such as fighting for a woman's honor even if he will not win. Meanwhile, Dario is on his deathbed and he tells his son Dio to move in with the Joestar family to fulfill George's life debt. Dio does so after paying his final disrespect over his father's grave, intending to take Joestar fortune for himself. Dio does this by outshining Jonathan while making him a pariah among his family and friends. Even Jonathan's childhood love with Erina Pendleton is not safe from Dio, who takes her first kiss and makes her unable to even look Jonathan in the eye. Upon learning of Dio's action, Jonathan flies into a rage and manages to land a powerful hit on Dio. Caught off guard, some of Dio's blood is spilled on an ancient Stone Mask that seems to react until the fight is broken up by George. Later, the Joestar butler discovers that Jonathan's beloved dog Danny was somehow trapped in the incinerator with Jonathan knowing that it was Dio's retaliation.

Soon after, George is ill and bed-ridden with Jonathan believing is more than a simple cold. While doing research on the strange mask, Jonathan finds the dying Dario's letter and finds the writer's symptoms are the same as his father's. Using Dio's pride against him, Jonathan deduced that Dio murdered his father and intends to the same with George. After leaving instructions for only trusted doctors to tend to his father, Jonathan sets off to London to discover the origins of the poison. Fearing Jonathan would ruin his plans, Dio steals the Stone Mask with the intent to arrange an accidental death with it. Two days later, Jonathan's search takes him to the dodgy Ogre Street where he is attacked by a man with a sawblade in bowler. But Jonathan's sense of honor and desire save his father convinces the bowler-wearing man to assist in the search for an Oriental druggist. Meanwhile, assuming that Jonathan died in Ogre Street, Dio crosses paths with two drunkards and the resulting scuffle ends with him slitting once of them to subject the other to an activated Stone Mask. But instead of the mask killing the second drunkard, Dio finds that it turned his victim into a powerful vampire that nearly kills him. Dio only just manages to survive due to the sunlight turning the vampire to dust. Returning back to the mansion, Dio is confronted by Jonathan.

"Dio to no Seishun" (ディオとの青春) 
Yasuko Kobayashi October 19, 2012 November 5, 2016
Having found an antidote and given it to George, Jonathan prepares to turn Dio in to the police. Dio attempts to lower Jonathan's guard to use his blood on the mask by feigning regret as he offers to turn himself in. But the bowler-wearing man from Ogre Street, introducing himself as Robert E. O. Speedwagon, reveals himself while tells Jonathan that Dio is pure evil while bringing the druggist Wang Chen who sold Dio the poison. George, having heard the whole thing, allows Jonathan and the constables to do what they must. But JoJo attempts to handcuff him, Dio attempts to stab him and ends up killing George and uses the mask on himself while killed by gunfire. Dying, George gives Jonathan his late mother's ring as the head constable revealing that George learned of Dario's nature before taking Dio in. George requests Jonathan to bear no ill will towards Dio before passing away, only for the vampirized Dio to come back to life and kills the constables while drinking the blood of one of them. Killing a vampirized constable, Jonathan attempts to kill Dio by focusing on his head. As several attempts to kill Dio fail, Jonathan sets the mansion ablaze and leads Dio to the roof so Speedwagon can escape. Jonathan attempts to sacrifice himself by dragging Dio down to a fiery death, but Dio's attempted counter forces Jonathan to use the layout to safely land while impaling Dio on the statue of Joestar family's guardian angel.

Shōgo Yasukawa October 26, 2012 November 12, 2016
Three days after the incident, Jonathan awakens to find Erina nursing him back to health in the hospital. As they rekindle their friendship, they encounter a strange man named Will A. Zeppeli, who performs a technique on JoJo which allows him to soothe the pain of his broken arm. Zeppeli tells JoJo about the technique, known as the Hamon, which uses the energy of one's own body to perform impressive feats of strength. He also reveals that Dio still lives, and it is Jonathan's fate to go against the Stone Mask. As Jonathan ponders about not getting Erina involved, Zeppeli notices the ripple energy residing within him. Meanwhile, Dio continues to prowl London, recruiting the vilest men he knows into his undead army, including Jack the Ripper. As Zeppeli trains Jonathan to master the Hamon, he explains how he was one of the first to discover the Stone Mask and witness its dark powers, dedicating himself to mastering the Hamon in order to destroy it. Just then, Speedwagon informs them of people going missing in Windknights Lot, so the three of them travel there. Whilst passing through a tunnel into the town, they are attacked by Jack, and Zeppeli enters into a fight with him to give Jonathan his one and only lesson into how to use the Hamon. As Jack tries to lure them into a trap, Jonathan is tasked by Zeppeli to finish him off without spilling any of the wine he has poured into a glass. Using the wine, Jonathan comes to understand the Hamon, allowing him to kill Jack from the other side of a wall using his own Hamon technique: Overdrive. 
5 "The Dark Knights"
"Ankoku no Kishitachi" (暗黒の騎士達) 
Kazuyuki Fudeyasu November 2, 2012 November 19, 2016
Upon arriving in Windknights Lot, Jonathan's group is pickpocketed by a talented young boy named Poco who Jonathan and Zeppeli manage to catch using their ripple powers. However, as the sun falls, they find themselves confronted by Dio, who had hypnotised Poco to lure Jonathan's group to the graveyard where they are attacked by his legion of zombies. Zeppeli attempts to use his ripple attacks on Dio, but he counters by freezing his veins. After also managing to freeze Jonathan's hand, Dio summons two powerful zombie knights, Tarukus and Blueford, to finish the job for him. As Jonathan struggles against them, Speedwagon uses his body heat to thaw Zeppeli's arm. As the battle between JoJo and Blueford intensifies, it moves into the depths of a nearby lake. JoJo decides rather than trying to face Blueford during an ascent to the surface of the lake, he dives deeper. Blueford follows, but JoJo has managed to find a pocket of oxygen rich air under a rock, and uses this breath of air to launch a Turquoise Blue Overdrive attack at Blueford. 
6 "Tomorrow's Courage"
"Ashita no Yūki" (あしたの勇気) 
Kazuyuki Fudeyasu November 9, 2012 November 26, 2016
As Blueford manages to barely avoid Jonathan's attack, Jonathan is once again ensnared by his hair. However, Jonathan manages to block Blueford's attack and channel an Overdrive attack through his sword, disintegrating one of his arms, before unleashing a barrage against him. As Blueford's body starts to disintegrate, he regains his human soul, feeling at peace and leaving Jonathan his 'Sword of Luck and Pluck' before completely disintegrating. Tarukus then attacks, but Jonathan and Zeppeli manage to get Speedwagon and Poco to safety using a bunch of leaves as a hangglider. As they make their escape, Zeppeli recalls how he learned to control the Hamon from a man named Tonpetty. As Tarukus leaps after them, they touch down at a knight's training ground in order to stand against him. Jonathan is pulled inside the grounds by Tarukus, thrusting him into a Chain Neck Deathmatch, in which one must decapitate the other in order to free himself. Realizing Jonathan will be killed if no one does anything, Poco overcomes his nerves and enters the grounds via a window, managing to unlock the door so Zeppeli can get inside. 
7 "Sorrowful Successor"
"Uketsugumono" (うけ継ぐ者) 
Shōgo Yasukawa November 16, 2012 December 3, 2016
Zeppeli recalls how Tonpetty foretold where his death would take place; in the very place he is in right now. Knowing this, Zeppeli fights against Tarukus with the intention of finding a way to free JoJo. However, Tarkus ensnares Zeppeli with a chain and rips his body into two. Using the last of his strength, Zeppeli transfers the last of his Hamon energy to Jonathan, allowing him to heal his injuries, break free from his chains, and obliterate Tarukus. Following the battle, Zeppeli tells Jonathan that he has accepted his fate and has passed his will onto him before passing away. As Jonathan, Speedwagon, and Poco make their way back to Windknights Lot, they meet Tonpetty, along with his other students, Dire and Straizo. Meanwhile, it is revealed that Poco's sister, Peggy, has been kidnapped by Dio. 
8 "Bloody Battle! JoJo & Dio"
"Kessen! JOJO & DIO" (血戦!JOJO&DIO) 
Yasuko Kobayashi November 23, 2012 TBA
After Poco hears that Peggy has gone out to search for him, Dio sends a zombie named Doobie to attack Peggy after she refuses to join his legion. Luckily, Jonathan and the others arrive in time to save her. Doobie soon reveals that his head is filled with poisonous snakes, managing to deliver a few bites to Jonathan's face, but neither the venom nor Doobie stands up to Jonathan's power. With Poco and Peggy reunited, Jonathan goes on to face Dio. Dire decides to face him first and launches an attack, but he is caught by Dio's freezing ability and is shattered into pieces, though with his last breath, he manages to shoot a ripple-powered rose into Dio's eye. As Jonathan learns from that sacrifice how he can damage Dio using the sword he received from Bruford, he goes on to confront Dio whilst Tonpetty and Straizo take on his undead army. Jonathan manages to slice his sword straight through Dio's body, but Dio uses this opportunity to freeze his sword and attack Jonathan's neck. However, Jonathan manages to thaw himself by heating the sword with a torch, though Dio manages to protect himself from Jonathan's attack. Just then, Jonathan sets his fists on fire to counter Dio's freezing and manages to break through his defenses with an Overdrive attack. As his body melts and he falls into the abyss, Dio launches a final attack which pierces Jonathan's hand, but appears not to do much more. With Dio presumed dead, Jonathan takes a long earned rest from his battles. 
9 "The Final Hamon!"
"Saigo no Hamon!" (最後の波紋!) 
Yasuko Kobayashi November 30, 2012 TBA
As Dio falls following his battle with Jonathan, he decapitates himself before the ripple reaches his head, which is recovered by his zombie servant Wang Chan. Meanwhile, with the Stone Mask destroyed, Jonathan marries Erina and they head off on a honeymoon to America on a cruise across the Atlantic Ocean. As Jonathan and Erina enjoy their cruise, Jonathan discovers that Wang Chan has snuck aboard, meaning Dio is still alive. As JoJo comes face to face with Dio, who wants his body to replace his own, Erina arrives on the scene just as Jonathan receives a near-fatal attack to his neck. Meanwhile, the ship starts to run amock with zombies after Wang Chan spreads the infection. Using the last Hamon energy he has, Jonathan manages to decapitate Wang Chan, making his body obstruct a piece of the cruise ship's mechanism, setting the ship on a path to explosion. As Erina resolves to die by Jonathan's side, Jonathan instead tells her to live on so she can protect a baby whose mother was killed. As the ship starts to explode, Dio makes a last-ditch attempt to take Jonathan's body, but Jonathan stops him, passing away with Dio's head in his arms whilst Erina and the baby hide in Dio's bomb-proof coffin to protect them from the explosion. Erina is eventually rescued near the Canary Islands a day later, and vows to pass on the truth of what happened on that night, February 8, 1888, through the generations, starting with the child she conceived with Jonathan before his untimely death.

10 "New York's JoJo"
"Nyū Yōku no JoJo" (ニューヨークのジョジョ) 
Yasuko Kobayashi December 7, 2012 TBA
In 1938, 49 years after Jonathan Joestar's death, Speedwagon and Straizo travel to Mexico, where they discover tomb filled with Stone Masks and a petrified body believed to be the being who created them. However, Straizo takes one of the masks and wears it, killing all of Speedwagon's archaeological team and using Speedwagon's blood to activate it. Meanwhile, in New York, Jonathan's grandson, Joseph Joestar (also nicknamed "JoJo"), uses his Hamon to save a young pickpocket named Smokey Brown, who is then taken in by Erina. After dealing with a mafia henchman at a restaurant, Joseph, Erina, and Smokey meet a mafia acquaintance of Speedwagon's who informs them that Speedwagon has allegedly been killed by Straizo, with Erina realizing that the Stone Mask must somehow be involved. Later, Joseph is confronted by Straizo, who has come to kill the boy. However, Joseph makes the first move with a surprise and over-the-top tommy gun attack. He claims he is not taking revenge for Speedwagon's death, but is instead retaliating because Straizo made his grandmother cry. 
11 "The Game Master"
"Gēmu no Tatsujin" (ゲームの達人) 
Shinichi Inotsume December 14, 2012 TBA
As expected, Straizo recovers from Joseph's attack and uses the laser eye attack Dio used to seemingly pierce through Joseph's head and neck. However, this turns out to be a clever trick by Joseph, who manages to attack Straizo with the Hamon. Straizo manages to block it using a scarf woven from the shells of a rare beetle, but Joseph manages to sneak some grenades onto his person. Despite being blown apart, Straizo manages to pull himself back together, forcing Joseph and Smokey to retreat to the Brooklyn Bridge. As Straizo catches up with them, he takes a woman hostage in order to goad Joseph into facing him. Straizo once again attacks Joseph with his laser, but Joseph manages to reflect it back at him before striking him with the Hamon. As Joseph tries to get information out of him, Straizo reveals that he had not killed Speedwagon, but spirited his body away from the cave, as he realized the petrified man they had found was seemingly feeding off of the blood Straizo had spilled. Before Joseph can learn anymore, Straizo kills himself with his last remaining breath, activating the Hamon to destroy his own body. Meanwhile, it is revealed that Speedwagon is alive but he is being held captive in Mexico, where a German military general named Rudol von Stroheim interrogates him about the Pillar Man, which they have excavated from the cave and intend to revive. Joseph also makes his way to Mexico, unaware that he is being followed by a strange assassin. 
12 "The Pillar Man"
"Hashira no Otoko" (柱の男) 
Kazuyuki Fudeyasu December 21, 2012 TBA
Joseph is confronted by one of Stroheim's men, Donovan, but manages to subdue him, learning that Speedwagon is still alive. Meanwhile, Stroheim manages to awaken the Pillar Man by sacrificing several prisoners to flood the chamber with blood. Once the man awakes, Stroheim dubs him Santana. To test Santana, Stroheim sends a vampire after Santana, which he absorbs into his body to feed himself. To Stroheim's shock, Santana manages to escape his cell by twisting his body through the air vents and confronts him, quickly learning and killing Stroheim's men by mimicking their gunfire with the bullets they tried to shoot him with. Just then, Joseph, who had managed to sneak into the base (after a failed attempt at crossdressing), reveals himself and stands against Santana using his Hamon powers. 
13 "JoJo vs. the Ultimate Lifeform"
"JoJo vs. Kyūkyoku Seibutsu" (JOJO vs. 究極生物) 
Shōgo Yasukawa January 4, 2013 TBA
As JoJo begins to fight Santana, Joseph finds his Hamon to not be effective against him, but it still helps protect him from the Pillar Man's attacks. Joseph appears to be knocked unconscious after receiving a powerful hit, allowing Santana to absorb him. However, this is all part of Joseph's plan so he can use the Hamon inside of Santana's body, ripping him in half. Chaining his upper body, Joseph attempts to drag Santana into the sunlight in order to kill him, but Santana's absorbing flesh keeps him from reaching the top of the stairs. Stroheim steps in to try and open the door himself, but Sanatana ensnares his leg, as well. Stroheim gets Joseph to chop off his ensnared leg, allowing him to open the door and expose Santana to the sunlight. However, Santana avoids death by diving into Stroheim's body by means of the now open wound from his leg. Resolving to take both himself and Santana out, Stroheim informs JoJo of the other Pillar Men his forces have found in Europe, telling him to go to Rome to learn how to defeat them before using a grenade on himself to once again expose Santana to sunlight by destroying his own body. As Santana makes a last ditch attack at JoJo, driving both into a well, Joseph manages to defeat Santana by using the noon sunlight reflected in the well's water, turning Santana to stone. 
14 "Ultimate Warriors from Ancient Times"
"Taiko kara Kita Kyūkyoku Senshi" (太古から来た究極戦士) 
Shōgo Yasukawa January 11, 2013 TBA
Speedwagon brings statued remains of Santana to the headquarters of his foundation in Washington, D.C., where it is shown Santana is still alive, but his scientists are able to keep him dormant through the use of ultraviolet light. Remembering Stroheim's words that there are three more powerful Pillar Men somewhere in Europe, Speedwagon takes Joseph to Rome to meet Will Zeppeli's grandson, Caesar, who is also skilled in using the Hamon. As Caesar questions Joseph's abilities, he fights against him using his own Hamon abilities formed from clothes filled with soapy water, encasing Joseph in a bubble, but Joseph manages to break free using a sneak attack. As Caesar makes plans for Joseph and Speedwagon to be taken to see where the Pillar Men are being kept, one of the Pillar Men, Wamuu, breaks free, killing a group of German soldiers and awakening his masters, Kars and Esidisi. Upon discovering the site, Wamuu destroys half of Caesar's friend Mark's body simply by bumping into him as he is walking past. As Caesar is forced to use his Hamon to peacefully end Mark's suffering, he vows vengeance against the Pillar Men. 
15 "A Hero's Proof"
"Hīrō no Shikaku" (ヒーローの資格) 
Shōgo Yasukawa January 18, 2013 TBA
Caesar engages Wamuu in battle for killing Mark, using his Bubble Launcher technique to surround the Pillar Man in Hamon enfused bubbles. Once Wamuu realizes he is facing a Hamon user, he uses his mysterious headgear to unleash a wind that bursts all of the bubbles. However, his attack is not yet over, as the movement created hundreds of miniature tornadoes that shred Caesar's skin, leaving him incapacitated and temporarily blinded in one eye. His boasts that he need not see to fight the Pillar Men amuses them, as Hamon users of two millennia past said the same things to them before they killed them. Kars and Esidisi head to the surface, allowing Wamuu to finish Caesar off as the only Hamon user left, only for Joseph to make himself known, proclaiming that he has developed his own special Hamon technique using a pair of clackers that he channels the Hamon through. Wamuu allows him to fight, slicing through his wrist to the artery to make the battle last only a minute to test Joseph's boast. Joseph's first attack, the Hamon Clacker Volley, appears to miss its mark, embedding a steel ball into a pillar behind Wamuu, but this is all part of a ploy to engage his other technique, the Clacker Boomerang, where he has thrown another Hamon empowered pair of clackers behind Wamuu, catching onto the original clacker, and actually landing a blow on Wamuu. Angered, Wamuu allows Joseph to continue to strike him with the clackers while he prepares his counter, the Holy Sandstorm. Wamuu claims his attack has been hindered by his eyesight and a pillar blocking Joseph, but Joseph is left barely alive. Playing dead, Joseph tries to run away, seemingly stranding Caesar and Speedwagon, but it is all a ploy to lure Wamuu away before he can kill the others. Joseph takes Wamuu on a mine cart ride through the ruins, intending to use a stick of dynamite to destroy him, but Wamuu anticipates these events and sends them flying, intending to kill Joseph for his insolence. However, Joseph proclaims that he could possibly be even stronger in a month's time, intriguing Wamuu, who decides to let Joseph live to get stronger with the Hamon in only a month, implanting a "Wedding Ring" in Joseph's body around his aorta that will release a deadly poison in 33 days' time, unless Joseph can get the antidote held in his lip piercing by killing him in battle. Esidisi, who has come to see what has been holding Wamuu up, also decides to enter in on the wager (after consuming the stick of dynamite before it explodes), implanting another poison-filled ring around Joseph's windpipe, with the antidote in his own nose piercing. Kars, however, passes on the game, and the Pillar Men leave in search of the Red Stone of Aja, and Joseph passes out from the strain of the battle. Caesar, who has been watching the whole time, realizes Joseph's resolve and promises to also get stronger with him. 
16 "Lisa Lisa, Hamon Coach"
"Hamon Kyōshi Risarisa" (波紋教師リサリサ) 
Kazuyuki Fudeyasu January 25, 2013 TBA
Wanting to teach Joseph to control his Hamon powers, Caesar takes him to Venice to meet his teacher, Lisa Lisa. Lisa Lisa orders Joseph to wear a mask that limits his breathing for the duration of his training so he can better focus his Hamon. To start their training, Lisa Lisa tasks Joseph and Caesar to climb the Hell Climb Pillar, a 24-meter pillar covered in oil, that they can only climb using Hamon or else they will starve to death at the pillar's foot. Observing Caesar's efforts, Joseph learns to climb up by focusing Hamon energy into just his fingertips. As the days pass as they struggle to climb, Joseph assumes there's an easy break when he spots a crack in the pillar, but this turns out to be a trap, causing the pillar to start spewing oil at high pressures from its 20-meter mark. Caesar manages to break through the barrier by using Hamon energy to simultaneously grip the pillar with his feet and repel the barrier, eventually reaching the peak. Joseph eventually manages to get past by travelling across the barrier to its weakest point so he can leap over it. As Joseph ends up running out of breath at the last meter, Caesar helps him up. As Joseph becomes pleased with the results of his training, now able to keep a glass of water from spilling when held completely upside down, and asks for the next test, Lisa Lisa brings in her servants, Messina and Loggins, to teach them how to master the Hamon over the next few weeks. 
17 "The Deeper Plan"
"Fukaku Wana o Hare!" (深く罠をはれ!) 
Kazuyuki Fudeyasu February 1, 2013 TBA
Lisa Lisa explains to Joseph and Caesar how the creator of the Stone Mask, Kars, is seeking a perfectly cut Red Stone of Aja known as the Super Aja to power the Stone Mask and become the ultimate lifeform. When her assistant Suzi Q comes in with a ruby necklace, Lisa Lisa reveals she herself possesses the Super Aja, capable of amplifying the light of the sun into a powerful beam. Joseph says they should destroy the stone, but Lisa Lisa reveals that even though Kars seeks it out the Super Aja is needed to defeat the Pillar Men, as well. With a week left until the rings inside Joseph dissolve and kill him, Lisa Lisa pits JoJo and Caesar against Loggins and Messina respectively for their final lesson. However, when Joseph reaches his destination, he finds Loggins has already been killed by Esidisi. Angered, Joseph decides to confront Esidisi over a bed of spikes. Thanks to an intricate trap, Joseph manages to use a wire set-up on Loggins to sever Esidisi's arm. However, Esidisi manages to repair himself by taking Loggins' arm before attacking Joseph with his Mode, his ability to control the temperature of his burning blood. Despite nearly falling for a trap himself, Joseph manages to ensnare Esidisi in Hamon-conductive wool thread and hits him with the Hamon, managing to destroy him and retrieve his antidote, safely dissolving the ring around his neck, with only six days left until Wamuu's "Wedding Ring" dissolves. Relieved, Joseph heads back to the castle, unaware that Esidisi's brain is clinging onto his back. 
18 "Von Stroheim's Revenge"
"Shutorohaimu-tai no Gyakushū" (シュトロハイム隊の逆襲) 
Shinichi Inotsume February 8, 2013 TBA
As Joseph awaits to warn Lisa Lisa about the Pillar Men, Esidisi's brain takes over the body of Suzi Q and sends the Super Aja off on a boat bound for Venice before confronting Lisa Lisa. Before Joseph and Caesar can pursue the boat, Esidisi stands in their way, knowing full well they cannot kill him without killing Suzi Q as well. As Esidisi prepares to use his boiling blood to kill everyone in the room, Joseph and Caesar combine their Hamon in opposing forces, forcing Esidisi's brain out of Suzi Q without killing her and into the sunlight, where he burns into nothingness. After healing Suzi Q, Lisa Lisa learns from her that the Red Stone has been sent to St. Moritz in Switzerland, where Kars and Wamuu are waiting. Joseph promises Suzi Q that he will see her again before he, Caesar, Lisa Lisa, and Messina head off to catch up to the mail train bound for Switzerland. Upon catching up to the train at customs, the Germans arrive and claim the Red Stone of Aja for themselves, inviting Joseph and the others to join them at their lodge. As Kars appears to attack the lodge, Joseph learns that the leader of the German group is none other than Stroheim, who has since become a cyborg. 
19 "A Race Towards the Brink"
"Shi no Gake e Tsuppashire" (死の崖へつっ走れ) 
Shinichi Inotsume February 15, 2013 TBA
Stroheim starts using his new mechanical body, which was designed to surpass Santana, to fight against Kars. However, it proves futile against Kars' Light Mode, a series of jagged blades on his arm-blades that move so fast in a chainsaw motion that they radiate light, which literally cuts him down to size. As Kars attempts to retrieve the Red Stone of Aja, Stroheim fires a beam of ultraviolet light at him, sending the Red Stone sliding towards a cliff edge, forcing JoJo and Kars to chase after it. Joseph pulls off a trick to grab the stone, but Kars pulls him off the cliff with him, claiming he will take his revenge for Esidisi's death. Joseph manages to save himself by using the Red Stone as a shield and prevents his fall by chaining a series of icicles together, only saved because Caesar has begun to think like Joseph and prepared the other end of the chain for him. Kars lands safely, laughing menacingly before heading to his daytime hideout. The next day, Caesar and the others discuss ambushing an abandoned hotel that they believe is Kars' hideout before Wamuu arrives from where he is waiting for Joseph elsewhere in Europe. However, Joseph, tense over the ring around his heart dissolving in five day's time and now Kars' vow of revenge, objects to the plan, believing it unwise to fight on their home turf. Caesar gets upset, claiming it is their blood vow to kill the creators of the Stone Masks, but Joseph tells him they should not dwell on the past, leading to a fist fight. Lisa Lisa and Messina calm them down, and Lisa Lisa decides that Joseph is right, but Caesar will not hear of it and heads to the hotel by himself. Lisa Lisa orders Messina to follow Caesar, taking him back by force if he gets too close, before telling Joseph a little more about Caesar's past.

Lisa Lisa tells Joseph of Caesar's childhood, in which he took to crime at a young age after being abandoned by his debt-ridden father, Mario. However, when Caesar turned 16, Caesar came across the wall containing the Pillar Men, which was booby trapped by Kars. Mario saved Caesar from the trap, getting absorbed into the wall, but lived long enough to tell Caesar find Lisa Lisa and learn the Hamon. As Caesar arrives at the hotel, he is attacked by Wamuu, who is using his Wind Mode, utilizing streams of moist air to both protect him from the sunlight and reflect the light around him. Caesar launches an attack on Wamuu after he drags Messina into the hotel, but Wamuu manages to retreat inside the hotel, prompting Caesar to go in after him. Using his new Bubble Cutter attack, a series of refractive bubble lenses, Caesar manages to redirect the sunlight inside the hotel to pin down Wamuu. However, Wamuu takes advantage of the split-second the sun is blotted by Caesar's attack to deliver a critical counter attack. Too injured to continue for the fight, Caesar uses the last of his strength to steal the piercing containing the antidote for the ring around Joseph's heart. He then uses his Final Hamon to create a blood bubble to deliver the piercing and his bandana to Joseph before being crushed by the collapsing ceiling. Wamuu, finding Caesar's fight and loyalty to be admirable, allows the bubble to remain. Joseph and Lisa Lisa are attracted to the hotel after Messina does not return, and unknowingly see the light of Caesar's Final Hamon. They discover the state of the hotel, finding the bubble with the antidote and Caesar's scarf, and soon realize that Caesar has died, and weep over the loss of their friend and ally.

Whilst following Wamuu's trail of blood, Joseph and Lisa Lisa encounter another vampire named Wired Beck, but Lisa Lisa manages to defeat him easily using her Hamon-empowered scarf. As they press on, Joseph states he will not take the antidote he received until he has beaten Wamuu as a promise to Caesar. They soon arrive before Wamuu, where Kars is also waiting for them, along with a hundred vampire minions. Lisa Lisa manages to hold off their attack with a bluff saying that if both she and JoJo are killed, a time bomb will destroy the Red Stone of Aja. Thus, she proposes that Joseph fights against Wamuu whilst she fights against Kars with the Red Stone on the line. Wamuu and Kars arrange a place for the battle at midnight, keeping Lisa Lisa as insurance to make sure Joseph brings the Red Stone. Whilst retrieving the Red Stone, Joseph finds a picture of his grandmother Erina from fifty years ago, becoming curious as to why Lisa Lisa would have it. Upon meeting at the arena, Lisa Lisa reveals that she was the baby that Erina rescued from the ship that fateful day 50 years ago, further explaining how she was raised by Straizo, who was the one who taught her about the Hamon and gave her the Red Stone. As Joseph and Wamuu's battle is revealed to be a chariot race using vampire horses, easily controlled by JoJo through reigns that conduct the Hamon, Joseph puts on Caesar's bandana and prepares to battle. 
22 "A True Warrior"
"Shin no Kakutōsha" (真の格闘者) 
Shinichi Inotsume March 8, 2013 TBA
Before Joseph's and Wamuu's race begins, it is revealed that during each lap, there will be a different weapon for whoever can grab it from a pillar first. Joseph manages to get a headstart by obstructing Wamuu's wheels with rubble, after claiming he was keeping it away from his own chariot, allowing him to get hold of the first weapon, a sledgehammer. However, Wamuu grabs hold of the pillar itself, forcing Joseph to abandon his chariot, though Joseph manages to use the hammer to avoid getting trampled by Wamuu's horses. Wamuu launches an attack on Joseph by hiding in his horse, but Joseph manages to use his cunning to turn his Holy Sandstorm attack against him with the Hamon. In order to regain his focus, Wamuu gouges out his own eyes and grows a horn that can sense the wind in its place. As the second lap offers a pair of crossbows, Joseph ends up picking one that is too big for him to use whilst Wamuu uses the wind to guide his shots with the smaller crossbow, managing to hit Joseph's sides with a reflected shot. As he is thrown to the ground, he uses the momentum of the fall to cock his crossbow without the others noticing. Joseph appears cornered, but manages to hit Wamuu with a Hamon-charged shot from his crossbow by distracting his senses with pebbles. Wamuu makes a desperate last attack by firing his severed arms at Joseph to cut off his breathing before gathering up wind for his Final Mode. 
23 "The Warrior of Wind"

Kazuyuki Fudeyasu March 15, 2013 TBA
Launching his Final Mode attack, Gathering Gale, which starts peeling away his own body, Wamuu begins firing a stream of wind capable of cutting stone towards Joseph. After a failed attempt at attacking him with a firebomb, Joseph strikes at Wamuu with Caesar's flaming bandana, which Wamuu shreds with his wind. However, this is all part of Joseph's plan, as both the oil from the bomb and the burning embers of Caesar's bandana have been breathed in by Wamuu, causing him to explode from the inside. Deciding Wamuu's wounds from the Hamon are fatal, Joseph gives him some of his blood to ease his passing as a sign of respect, similar to the respect Wamuu showed Caesar. When the other vampires suddenly attack, Wamuu uses the last of his strength to kill them, not wanting them to interfere until the end. Upon Wamuu's request, Joseph drinks the antidote from his ring, allowing Wamuu to pass away with no regrets. It is soon time for Lisa Lisa's battle with Kars, with Kars removing his headgear, revealing his long flowing hair. When their match begins, Lisa Lisa seems to have the upper hand with her Hamon-conducting scarf. However, they soon discover that Kars does not have the same warrior's pride as Wamuu, having used a vampire to act as his body double before he stabs Lisa Lisa with one of his Light Mode blades from behind. After claiming the Red Stone of Aja for himself, Kars sends his vampire army after the weakened Joseph. However, he is rescued by Stroheim and his men, along with Speedwagon and Smokey, who use ultraviolet lights to fight off the vampires whilst JoJo goes to face Kars. As Kars uses a weakened Lisa Lisa to force JoJo into a vulnerable position, dangling her unconscious body over a bed of sharp crystals, Smokey realizes that Joseph does not yet know that Lisa Lisa is in fact his mother.

Yasuko Kobayashi March 22, 2013 TBA
Being forced to cling onto a rope to stop Lisa Lisa from falling to her death, Joseph is at a huge disadvantage against Kars. Feeling he has a plan, Joseph sets his scarf on fire, stating he will finish Kars off before it fully burns. Kars then cuts the rope in the hope of sending both Joseph and Lisa Lisa to their deaths, but falls into a snare laid out by Joseph, who hits him with a Hamon attack and knocks him down into the sharp crystals below. As Joseph rescues Lisa Lisa, Speedwagon explains to Smokey how Lisa Lisa, her real name being Elisabeth, was brought up by Straizo who taught her the ways of the Hamon. She later met and was courted by Jonathan and Erina's son George Joestar II, with their marriage resulting in the birth of their child Joseph. George II ultimately joined the Royal Air Force, battling in the Great War as an ace fighter pilot. However, a zombie who had survived the death of Dio and the destruction of the first Stone Mask soon sought vengeance for Dio's death, staying alive by eating people whole, not even leaving bones behind. He ultimately disguised himself as a high-ranking RAF officer and arranged a meeting with George II, who discovered the trap too late. George II may have had some latent talent for the Hamon like his father and son, but he had no training and was easily killed by the zombie. When Elisabeth discovered the treachery, she hunted down the zombie and easily killed him with her Hamon powers, but she was caught in the act by an RAF official who thought she murdered a human in cold blood and burned the body to hide the evidence. Wanted throughout all of Europe, Elisabeth became a fugitive until she met with Speedwagon once more, using his foundation's resources erase all trace of her past, and placing her on Venice's Saplena Island where she changed her name to Lisa Lisa. Upon learning of the events, Erina began raising Joseph on her own, and asked Speedwagon to make sure that the young Joseph never learned the truth of the events that had unfolded so he may never learn the Hamon and have such a terrible fate befall him as had happened to the rest of her family. With Speedwagon's story over, Stroheim attempts to finish off Kars with multiple blasts of ultraviolet beam, but Kars suddenly puts on the Stone Mask with the Red Stone of Aja in place. Before Stroheim can call off the attack, the artificial sunlight from all the German soldiers and Speedwagon Foundation operatives channels through the Super Aja, activating the Stone Mask and sending its undiluted energy into Kars, who undergoes a dramatic transformation.

Kars demonstrates his new powers, turning his hand into a flesh-eating squirrel that deals damage to Stroheim. The sun rises, killing the rest of the vampire minions, but Kars remains standing, immune thanks to the power of the stone. Joseph grabs the stone and runs off with Smokey to lure Kars away from the others whilst thinking of a plan. Leaving Smokey behind before he can tell him about Lisa Lisa, Joseph boards a plane to lure Kars away further. Joseph theorises he may be able to beat Kars if he drops him into a volcano and heads towards a volcanic island. As Speedwagon attempts to stop Joseph by telling him about Lisa Lisa, the feathers that Kars had launched on JoJo's plane turn into pirahnas which cause the plane to start crashing. Joseph uses his parachute to lure Kars into the path of the plane as it heads towards the volcano's crater. Kars attempts to escape but Stroheim arrives to stop him, rescuing Joseph from the plane before it crashes into the lava, which starts melting Kars. Joseph and Stroheim believe they have finally won, as Kars is now being defeated by the very Earth that birthed him.

"Kami to Natta Otoko" (神となった男) 
Yasuko Kobayashi April 5, 2013 TBA

Joseph's victory is shortlived when Kars emerges from the lava unharmed, having formed an insulating shell around him, and in one swift movement he slices off Joseph's hand. Kars reveals that he and other Pillar Men were part of a fourth race of humanity living underground, which he exterminated when they retaliated against his thirst for power and the creation of the Stone Masks. Joseph attempts to fight back, but Kars has discovered how to use the Hamon himself, at a higher potency that harms Joseph as if he were a Pillar Man. Just as Kars prepares to deliver the coup de grace, Joseph subconsciously holds up the Red Stone of Aja just as Kars strikes. The energy causes the volcano to erupt, launching them both into the sky. Kars plans on escaping with his wings, but Joseph's gloating distracts him enough such that his severed arm flies up and grabs him, throwing Kars into the path of other debris which push Kars out of the Earth's atmosphere. Kars tries in vain to return to the Earth to take his revenge on Joseph, but the vacuum of space initiates one last evolutionary response by turning him into a chunk of ice. Drifting forever in the void, the immortal Kars eventually stopped thinking entirely. Back on the Earth, Joseph accepts that everything is finally over and he loses consciousness as the chunk of rock plummets back to the ocean. Stroheim watches on in horror, and later reports back to Speedwagon. On February 28, 1939, Joseph Joestar is pronounced dead.


Weeks later, Erina, Lisa Lisa, Smokey, Speedwagon, and Messina pay their final respects to Joseph, when he walks up behind his grandmother to surprise her, wondering why no one bothered to meet him at the airport. Everyone is shocked, and he reveals that he survived the fall and landed near Venice, where Suzi Q, his new wife, nursed him back to health, and Stroheim even fitted him with a new prosthetic hand. However, Suzi Q forgot to tell everyone that he was not dead, infuriating him.


Years later, Joseph, Suzi Q, and Lisa Lisa, after revealing that she is his mother Elisabeth, move to the United States, where Elisabeth marries, again, to a Hollywood screenwriter. Erina lives out the rest of her life teaching at an elementary school, dying in 1950 at the age of 81. Speedwagon dedicates the rest of his life and fortune to researching medicine and science, dying of a heart attack in 1952 at the age of 89, having never married. Smokey Brown pays his way through college and studies political science, ultimately becoming the first black mayor of his hometown in Georgia. Stroheim never sees Joseph, again, and dies an honorable death on the frontlines at the Battle of Stalingrad.


In 1987, a 67-year-old Joseph lashes out at a Japanese tourist at JFK Airport, still sore that his beloved daughter moved to Japan after marrying a Japanese man, before he flies out to Tokyo to see her. Four years earlier, a strange coffin is salvaged from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the Canary Islands, engraved with the name "DIO". Back in the present in Tokyo, a young man wearing a school uniform and cap sits in a jail cell, an ominous aura about him.

Yasuko Kobayashi April 4, 2014

In 1983, off the coast of the Canary Islands, a coffin with the word "DIO" on the front is salvaged from the depths. The crew attempts to open it up, finding that it is locked from the inside. Later, their ship is found, mysteriously abandoned with no signs of a struggle.


Four years later in 1987, in Japan, a boy named Jotaro Kujo has willingly turned himself into jail, refusing to leave as he believes he is possessed by an evil spirit. He proves this by mysteriously taking a police officer's gun and firing a bullet at his own head, only for it to be stopped in midair by a spectral hand. Noticing the hand herself when others cannot, Jotaro's mother, Holly, calls her father and Jotaro's grandfather, Joseph Joestar, who travels to Japan alongside an acquaintance from Egypt, Mohammed Avdol. After Jotaro refuses his grandfather's demands to leave the cell, Joseph leaves the task to Avdol, who summons an "evil spirit" of his own, an anthropomorphic bird engulfed in flames, which he refers to as Magician's Red. As Magician's Red uses force against Jotaro, whose own spirit tries to protect him, Joseph explains these "spirits" are actually manifestations of the user's own life force, which have come to be known as "Stands". Jotaro is eventually pushed into fighting back with his Stand, breaking apart the prison bars, at which point Avdol withdraws from the fight, having achieved his goal of getting Jotaro out of his cell. Later, Joseph reveals to Jotaro and Holly that the Speedwagon Foundation has been investigating the disappearance of a shipwreck salvage crew and the discovery of an empty coffin. It was in this coffin that a man of pure evil known as DIO has been in slumber, until he was brought back to the surface. Joseph then uses a Stand of his own, resembling purple brambles, to smash an expensive instant camera, from which a photograph appears. After explaining how people from the Joestar bloodline have star-shaped birthmarks on the back of their necks, Joseph reveals the photograph to be a picture of DIO possessing the same birthmark, showing that he had stolen the body of his grandfather, Jonathan Joestar, as his own. He goes on to state that DIO's revival has caused the emergence of Stands in both himself and Jotaro, though Holly claims nothing has happened to her, whilst Avdol states he has had his Stand since birth. As the group decides to rest before tracking down DIO, Jotaro tries to take all this information in, as well as knowing Joseph and Avdol will be living with them for some time. Meanwhile, somewhere in the world, DIO senses that he is being watched by the Joestars and resolves to kill them.

Yasuko Kobayashi April 11, 2014
As Jotaro heads out to school with some of his female admirers, a cut suddenly appearing on Jotaro's leg, causing him to fall down a flight of stairs, only managing to save himself by using his Stand to grab onto nearby tree branches and divert his fall. Managing to land safely, Jotaro receives a handkerchief from a new transfer named Noriaki Kakyoin, unaware that he is the one responsible for his fall. Later, as Jotaro heads to the nurse's office to have his wound treated, he discovers the handkerchief he received from Kakyoin contains a death threat, stating he will kill him using his Stand. At that moment, the school nurse starts acting strangely, stabbing one of the other students with a pen before going after Jotaro with inhuman strength. Kakyoin appears and reveals he has used his personal Stand, Heirophant Green, to possess the nurse's body from the inside. Jotaro uses his Stand to pull Hierophant Green out of the nurse's body, only to be attacked by its Emerald Splash attack, whilst the nurse receives harsh internal injuries as a result of Jotaro's extraction attempt. Despite seemingly being fatally injured by Heirophant Green's attack, Jotaro, deciding he will be the one to judge standing against evil Stand users, shrugs off Kakyoin's next attack and uses his Stand to pummel Heirophant Green until Kakyoin falls unconscious. After leaving the nurse to the school faculty, Jotaro brings Kakyoin back home to Joseph and Avdol. Joseph explains that Kakyoin had been forced to become DIO's pawn and will likely die in a few days, revealing the cause to be something implanted in Kakyoin's forehead. 
3 29 "The Curse of DIO"
"DIO no Jubaku" (DIOの呪縛) 
Yasuko Kobayashi April 18, 2014
Joseph reveals that the object on Kakyoin's forehead is a "flesh bud" that has a tendril going straight into his brain, making him swear loyalty to DIO simply by charisma. Avdol reveals that he was once approached by DIO in this manner, barely managing to escape unharmed. Determined to save Kakyoin, Jotaro uses the precise nature of his Stand to steadily remove the bud from Kakyoin's brain. Despite the bud's attempts to invade his body in self-defense, Jotaro remains calm until the bud is safely extracted from Kakyoin's brain, after which it is destroyed by Joseph's Hamon attack. The next day, as Kakyoin is recovering from his injuries, Avdol finds Holly collapsed in the kitchen and discovers that she herself has been cursed with a Stand resembling rose vines. Furthermore, as Holly does not have the willpower to control it, the Stand is slowly killing her, a fact that Jotaro and Joseph fear to be her fate. After learning from Joseph that the only way to save Holly is to kill DIO and lift the curse, Jotaro uses his Stand to analyze the photos Joseph had taken of DIO, managing to identify a fly in one of the photos and draw it in detail. After doing some research, Avdol determines the fly to be a particular species found only in the Aswan region of Egypt, where they believe DIO to be hiding. Kakyoin, who had previously learned from Avdol that Holly has only fifty days to live, confirms their theory, mentioning how he met DIO while on a family vacation to Egypt, and decides to join the group in their search for DIO because of a fondness he feels for women like Holly. After Joseph calls on the Speedwagon Foundation to take care of Holly, Avdol uses a deck of Tarot cards to give Jotaro's Stand the name of Star Platinum. As the group takes off on a flight towards Egypt, DIO, using a Stand power similar to Joseph's Stand, Hermit Purple, takes a photograph showing him their location. On the plane, Joseph senses DIO's presence, becoming cautious that there may be a Stand user somewhere on the plane. 
4 30 "Tower of Gray"

Shōgo Yasukawa April 25, 2014
As their plane reaches the airspace over Taiwan, Jotaro and the others are awoken from their slumber by the sound of a flying stag beetle, which Avdol identifies as an evil Stand known as Tower of Gray, which is responsible for causing mass murders that look like tragic accidents. As Jotaro struggles against Tower of Gray, finding its speed to outmatch even Star Platinum's, it suddenly kills a row of passengers, using their bloody tongues to spell out the word "Massacre!", shocking an elderly passenger who seems to have escaped the attack unscathed, until Kakyoin knocks him out. Avdol becomes angered, but Kakyoin convinces him to calm down, stating that the plane could explode if he or Jotaro used their Stands recklessly, deciding to face Tower of Gray himself using Heirophant Green. Although his Stand's Emerald Splash attack seems to have no effect against Tower of Gray's speed, it all turns out to be a trap laid out by Kakyoin, who uses Emerald Splash to pin down Tower of Gray's movements so that Heirophant Green can impale it using spikes laid out in the seating. With Tower of Gray immobilized, its user Gray Fly, the elderly man from before, is also fatally wounded as a result. Upon noticing that the plane is not flying properly, Joseph discovers that the pilots have already been killed, with Gray Fly taunting in his last breath that even if they survive the crash, they are still over 10,000 kilometers (6,200 mi) away from Egypt. Joseph manages to safely land the plane off the coast of Hong Kong, where the group realizes that they must find an alternate way of reaching Egypt that does not put innocent lives at risk. As the group goes to a restaurant and discuss travelling to Egypt by sea, they are joined by a French tourist who soon reveals himself to be one of DIO's assassins sent to kill them, deciding to face Avdol first.

The swordsman, who introduces himself as Jean Pierre Polnareff, decides to take their fight outside to give Avdol a chance to use his powers to his full extent. He leads the group to the Tiger Balm Garden, predicting he will defeat Avdol with his own Stand's abilities. As Polnareff shows off his skills by using his Silver Chariot Stand to carve out a statue of Magician's Red, Avdol attacks Polnareff with his special technique, Crossfire Hurricane, launching an ankh-shaped flame at Polnareff, but Polnareff rebounds it back at Magician's Red, seemingly burning Avdol. However, this turns out to be the statue that Polnareff himself carved earlier, and both he and Silver Chariot are engulfed in flames. Before the group can celebrate victory, Polnareff has Silver Chariot shed off its armor, which had protected him from Avdol's attacks, allowing it to move even faster and produce after images to confuse Avdol and attack him from multiple angles. However, Avdol overcomes this with his Cross Fire Hurricane Special, using multiple flames to distract the decoys, before attacking Polnareff directly from underground with a larger flame. With Polnareff defeated and burning alive, Avdol throws him a knife to end his own life before the flames do, but Polnareff refuses, admitting his defeat and residing himself to be killed by the flames. Realizing the man's chivalry, even in the face of death, Avdol releases him from the flames, and discovers that Polnareff has also been under DIO's control by means of a flesh bud, which Jotaro soon extracts. As the group heads for their boat the Speedwagon Foundation has hired for them, Polnareff appears before them, asking to see Joseph's gloved hand to confirm something. He reveals that his true goal is to find and kill a Stand user with two right hands, who was responsible for the rape and murder of his younger sister, Cherie, becoming swayed by DIO when he suggested he could help him find the culprit. Learning that the culprit is likely someone in DIO's employ, Polnareff decides to join the Joestar group on their journey to Egypt, believing that their search for DIO will lead him to his sister's murderer.

When they see one of the sharks has been sliced in half, they soon find themselves approached by a seafaring Stand, narrowly escaping its clutches with Kakyoin's help. The group initially suspect Anne of being the Stand's user, but soon deduce from her attempt at acting tough that this is not the case. When the ship's captain Captain Tennille[d] appears on deck and starts harassing both Anne and Jotaro, Jotaro accuses him of being the Stand user, using a bluff to make him reveal himself. His identity as an imposter revealed, the fake Captain Tennille has his Stand Dark Blue Moon take Anne hostage, challenging Jotaro to fight against him in the ocean, where he would have the advantage. Star Platinum manages to beat Dark Blue Moon before its reaches the ocean, knocking its owner into the sea. However, acorn barnacles appear on Star Platinum and spread around him, draining its strength and causing Jotaro to fall into the ocean, where Dark Blue Moon and the fake Captain Tennille await. Dark Blue Moon creates an underwater whirlpool and spreads its razor sharp scales into it, preventing the others from coming to Jotaro's aid. Jotaro overcomes this situation by keeping himself and Star Platinum limp, allowing it to concentrate its strength in its fingers, and waits for the right moment to attack with his Star Finger technique, defeating Dark Blue Moon and sending its user to his death. Just then, several bombs laid out by the impostor explode, forcing the group and crewmates to escape on emergency lifeboats, where they soon come across a large freighter.

Elsewhere, the Joestar group boards the freighter, unable to find a single soul on board save for a lone caged orangutan named Forever, even though everything appears to be functioning properly. Suddenly, one of the ship's cranes' hooks moves by itself and kills one of the crew members, despite nobody operating the machinery. While Kakyoin uses Heirophant Green to search for other life on the ship, which proves unsuccessful, Anne checks on Forever again, becoming concerned by his intelligent, and somewhat depraved, actions. Later, as Anne decides to take a shower, Forever escapes from his cage, kills the remaining sailors, and corners Anne in the shower. Jotaro arrives just in time save Anne and fights against Forever, but finds himself attacked by various parts of the ship and is shocked when Forever disappears into the ship's hull. Jotaro then comes to the realization that not only is Forever one of DIO's assassins, but the ship itself is an extremely powerful Stand known as Strength. As Forever taunts Jotaro by showing how he has complete control over the ship and everything on it, Jotaro throws a button from his school jacket at him, taunting that the ape has no control over it. Forever flies into a blind rage and lunges at Jotaro, who uses the opportunity to have Star Platinum launch his jacket button into Forever's skull with a Star Finger, leaving the ape frightened and vulnerable for Jotaro to easily finish off. With Forever defeated, Strength loses its form, forcing Jotaro and the others to escape to the lifeboats as the ship reverts to a tiny boat.

Shinichi Inotsume May 23, 2014
Wishing to keep Anne safe until she is due to meet with her father, the Joestar group check into a hotel, with Polnareff put into his own room. Upon entering his room, Polnareff realises quickly that one of DIO's assassins, Devo the Cursed,[f] is hiding in his refrigerator. Polnareff seemingly defeats Devo easily, but Devo claims that being attacked was his plan all along, as he must be injured in order for his Stand Ebony Devil to work, before throwing himself off the hotel balcony and disappearing. Whilst searching for Devo's whereabouts, Polnareff suddenly receives a cut on his leg, but cannot determine where it came from. After informing Avdol and Joseph of the situation and arranging to regroup with them later, Polnareff reaches under his bed for his keys, but is suddenly strapped to the underside of his bed, the culprit revealed to be a doll that Devo had possessed using Ebony Devil. Trapped under the bed and slightly blinded by shampoo, Polnareff struggles to fight against the doll as Silver Chariot cannot accurately attack in areas Polnareff cannot see, also becoming unable to save one of the hotel staff from being killed by the doll. Just as Polnareff manages to free himself from the cords restraining him, the doll soaks the room's carpet with beverages, preparing to kill Polnareff by electrocuting him with a shorted hairdryer. However, Polnareff manages to use reflections of pieces of a mirror he shattered earlier to pinpoint the doll's location and attack it precisely. Unable to learn anymore from his opponent, Polnareff cuts the doll to pieces, which in turn kills Devo, who had been controlling his Stand from a bathroom stall elsewhere in the hotel. Later on, as Polnareff deals with authorities about the incident, receiving help from the Speedwagon Foundation's lawyers, Joseph uses Hermit Purple on his room's television, which rapidly changes channels to reveal a hidden message: "There is a traitor among you. Be wary of Kakyoin, for he is DIO's servant". Soon, the image changes to a live feed of DIO, who taunts Joseph before causing the television to explode. This leads Joseph and Avdol to be cautious about Kakyoin, who Avdol realizes is currently accompanying Jotaro and Anne into town.

Kazuyuki Fudeyasu May 30, 2014
Jotaro and Anne suspect something is wrong with Kakyoin after observing some odd characteristics, such as brutally beating up a thief, eating beetles, and licking a cherry in a disgusting manner. After nearly being pushed off a balcony at the cable car station, Jotaro, believing Kakyoin to be possessed, punches him, revealing him to be an impostor. Rubber Soul, one of DIO's assassins, reveals he has disguised himself using his Stand Yellow Temperance, a Stand that consumes flesh and can take on any form. As the two take their fight onto the cable cars, Anne reports the situation to Joseph and Avdol, who are shortly joined by the real Kakyoin. Rubber Soul reveals that a piece of Yellow Temperance's slime has come off onto Jotaro's hand when he punched him, stating it will slowly consume his flesh. Failing to remove the slime with both fire and ice and after being ambushed by Rubber Soul again who claims his Stand is invincible, Jotaro instead decides to drag him down into the sea below, forcing Rubber Soul to lower Yellow Temperance's guard to breathe and leaving him open to a direct attack. Upon being interrogated by Jotaro, Rubber Soul reveals the Stands of DIO's next assassins are Death, the Empress, the Emperor, and the Hanged Man; the last of which is J. Geil,[g] the man with two right hands who killed Polnareff's sister. In a last ditch attack, Rubber Soul uses a nearby drainage pipe to deliver one last attack against Jotaro, only for him to use the very same pipe to have Star Platinum deliver a high pressure water blast right back at him. After deeming Rubber Soul of no further use and pummeling him, Jotaro rejoins the group as they continue their journey to India, becoming surprised when Kakyoin licks a cherry in an identical fashion to his imposter. Unbeknownst to the Joestar group, Anne is following them in the next train car.

Yasuko Kobayashi June 6, 2014
The Joestar group arrives in Calcutta, India, and after an encounter with the local beggars the group stops at a nearby restaurant to relax. After having an unfortunate meeting with a pig in the restaurant's toilet, Polnareff sees a Stand in the mirror, and realizes that it must be J. Geil's Stand the Hanged Man. He smashes the mirror before the Stand gets too close, and afterwards decides he should hunt down his sister's killer on his own, despite Avdol's warnings that they should remain together. Elsewhere, Hol Horse, another of DIO's assassins, bids farewell to a young woman before meeting with J. Geil himself, with the two deciding to team up to kill Polnareff. The next day, as Joseph and Avdol worry that Polnareff has truly gone off on his own, Polnareff finds a local who has seen J. Geil, and points to the man nearby with Hol Horse. As the rainy sky clears, only Hol Horse remains, shocking both the old man and Polnareff. As Polnareff decides he needs to get through Hol Horse to get to J. Geil, Hol Horse uses his Stand the Emperor, which takes the form of a gun, to fire a shot at Polnareff, who attempts to block it with Silver Chariot only for the bullet to change trajectory around Silver Chariot's sword, revealing that it too is a part of the Emperor. Just as the bullet is about to strike its mark, Polnareff is saved in the nick of time by the arrival of Avdol, who realizes the bullet is arcing back. Avdol attempts to block the bullet but is stabbed in the back by Hanged Man, who was hiding in the reflection of a puddle, allowing the bullet to strike him straight through his forehead. As Kakyoin arrives on the scene and is shocked to find Avdol dead, he finds that, despite his words, Polnareff is just as mortified about his friend's death.

Yasuko Kobayashi June 13, 2014
Kakyoin tries to convince Polnareff to retreat to safety until they can discover a way to beat the deadly pair, but J. Geil provokes Polnareff into attacking his Hanged Man within a glass window, using the broken shards of glass to pin him down. Just as Hol Horse fires a round off with the Emperor, Kakyoin uses Emerald Splash on Polnareff to get him out of the way, and escapes with him in a car, leaving behind Avdol whose body is eventually found by Jotaro and Joseph. During their escape, as Polnareff realizes the error of his ways following an elbow to the face from Kakyoin, Kakyoin theorizes that there is no such thing as a "mirror world" that the Hanged Man operates in as mirrors only reflect light. However, he is interrupted when they discover that the Hanged Man has followed them on the car's various reflective surfaces, forcing them to crash the vehicle and retreat behind a nearby rock. The sudden battle leads the two to realize that the Hanged Man is actually a Stand of light that jumps between reflective surfaces. They are soon put in a dangerous situation when the Hanged Man jumps into the reflection of the eyes of a young boy, who is unable to look away from the pair out of curiosity. However, Polnareff overcomes this by kicking sand in the child's eyes, forcing the Hanged Man towards his own eye and allowing Polnareff to strike it in its path, leading him and Kakyoin to J. Geil's location and a man with wounds identical to the Hanged Man. However, this man is just a decoy, as the real J. Geil uses a nearby group of beggars to trap Polnareff and Kakyoin between them, using the Hanged Man to jump from eye to eye. Polnareff believes all is lost, but Kakyoin takes out a shiny gold coin and flips it into the air, bringing everyone's gaze, along with the Hanged Man, towards it, allowing Polnareff to cut the Stand down before finally avenging his sister by killing J. Geil. Later, Hol Horse catches up to Polnareff and Kakyoin, but finds that the Emperor no longer has any advantage against them now that J. Geil is dead. As Hol Horse is pushed into a corner by Jotaro and Joseph, who say they have just finished giving Avdol a proper burial, Polnareff prepares to carry out his sentence but is stopped by Hol Horse's lover, allowing Hol Horse to escape. After treating the woman's wounds, Joseph urges the group to continue their journey towards Egypt, unaware that a drop of the woman's blood has caused a mysterious growth to appear on his arm.

Shōgo Yasukawa June 20, 2014
Sensing J. Geil's death through the connection in her bloodline, Enya prepares to take revenge on his assailants with her minion who uses the Empress Stand. Elsewhere, Jotaro's group travel by bus towards Varanasi, joined by the woman from before, who introduces herself as Nena. Upon arriving in the city, Joseph, growing concerned about what he assumed to be a bug bite on his arm, goes to the local hospital to get it treated, as Nena sticks out her tongue which has a strange wart on it and remains with Polnareff. When the doctor attempts to cut the growth off, he is killed by the "bug bite", which has grown its own face and reveals itself to be the Empress. As Joseph tries to fight off the Stand attached to his arm, he is put into a further pinch when the Empress implicates Joseph for the murder of the doctor, putting the police on alert. Joseph attempts to hide from the police, but the Empress grows arms and manages to keep Joseph in one place, alerting the police towards his location. With the Stand unaffected by his Hamon techniques, since it is a part of his own body, Joseph instead uses Hermit Purple to squeeze and ensnare Empress, allowing him to break free. As Joseph searches for user of the Empress while trying to avoid attacks from the Stand as it grows larger and stronger, he comes across a barrel containing a black substance and sticks his arm inside. Though the Empress is initially undeterred in its attacks on Joseph, stating that it cannot be suffocated as it is not a living organism, the substance suddenly solidifies around it, stopping its movements. Joseph reveals that the barrel contained coal tar that he had sought out with a map created by Hermit Purple and some ashes. Joseph then proceeds to use Hermit Purple to rip the immobilized Empress to shreds, while elsewhere Nena is also torn to shreds, revealing her as the Stand's user and her true form as an obese woman who was using the skin of the younger woman as a disguise. After regrouping with Jotaro and Kakyoin, the group decides to travel by car to Pakistan, unaware that they are being followed by another car.

On their way driving to Pakistan, the group finds Anne hitchhiking at the side of the road and they reluctantly take her along with them. Upon continuing their journey, a red car gets in their way and leads them into the path of an oncoming truck, with Jotaro quickly using Star Platinum to avoid a fatal collission. After stopping at a roadside tea house later on, the group, believing the owner of the red car to be a Stand user, spots the car parked nearby and they start pressing the other customers, only for the car to drive off. They chase after the car, following a signpost that the car had switched around in advance, and wind up at a dead end, where the car appears from behind them and pushes them off of a cliff. Kakyoin manages to stop their fall by having Hierophant Green hook a cable to the other car, before Jotaro uses Star Platinum to pull themselves to safety, knocking the other car down the cliff in the process. Just then, a voice comes from their own car's radio, revealing the red car to actually be the Wheel of Fortune Stand, which emerges from the ground and destroys their vehicle, transforming into a stronger form. The Stand starts attacking Jotaro and the others with a seemingly unseen projectile, forcing the group to try and escape. Jotaro prepares to unleash an attack on Wheel of Fortune's underside, only to learn that the purpose of the earlier attacks was to soak them in gasoline. Wheel of Fortune's user, ZZ,[h] uses the sparks on his car to set Jotaro ablaze, seemingly killing him. However, Jotaro manages to avoid the flames by digging underneath the ground and uses Star Platinum to destroy Wheel of Fortune and send ZZ flying out into the open. After chaining ZZ to a rock, the group borrows the car, which had reverted to its original dilapidated form, and they continue their journey. Meanwhile, Enya, frustrated that all of her Stand wielders have been defeated, decides to confront them personally with her own Stand: Justice.

After explaining Holly's situation to her, Joseph manages to convince Anne to return back to her home in Hong Kong. With heavy fog making it dangerous to continue driving near the cliffs towards Karachi, the group stops by a nearby town to look for a hotel. After failing to get directions from a strangely silent restaurant owner, the group comes across a dead body lying on the street, uncertain of what has caused the man's death. With no one else in the town seeming to acknowledge the corpse's presence, the group becomes wary and suspects a Stand user is involved, with their suspicions growing when they discover the body is riddled with bloodless holes. Feeling they should leave the town, Joseph jumps towards what he believes to be their car, only to narrowly avoid being impaled by a spiked gate. It is then that Enya appears before the group, claiming to be an innocent old woman and she leads them to a nearby hotel. As the group checks into their rooms, Hol Horse shows up at the hotel, having tracked the Joestar group to their location. However, Enya, believing Hol Horse needs to die for abandoning J. Geil, attacks his wrist with some scissors before using Justice, her Stand which takes the form of the fog itself, to make a hole from his wound. Justice then uses the wound to control Hol Horse's arm like a puppet and make him shoot himself with his own Emperor, allowing Enya to set her sights on her next target: Polnareff.

Enya rushes to hide Hol Horse's corpse from Polnareff to avoid alerting the others, struggling to suppress her rage when Polnareff shows his appreciation of her "hospitality". However, Hol Horse, who is still alive, alerts Polnareff to an attack from Enya, who uses Justice's fog to control the dead civilians of the village like zombies. Retreating to a bathroom to hide from the zombies, Polnareff is hit by a surprise attack from the bathroom door's keyhole, allowing Justice to take control of his tongue. While making Polnareff lick the toilet in humiliation, Enya is approached by Jotaro, who has suspected something was amiss with her and sees through her ploy when she refers to him by his real name, as the group had all used fake names when signing the hotel ledger earlier. Enya manages to inflict a wound on Jotaro's leg, but Jotaro manages to overcome Justice's fog-like form by having Star Platinum inhale it, suffocating Enya until she passes out. With the village revealed to have been a cemetery the entire time, Jotaro suggests to the group that they take Enya with them to learn more about DIO, while Hol Horse makes off with their car, advising the group to kill Enya while they still can.

As the group stop by a kebab shop in Karachi, the store owner turns out to be Steely Dan,[i] wielder of the Lovers Stand, who gloats as Enya is killed by some of DIO's flesh buds that Steely Dan had implanted in her body to keep her from revealing the truth. She dies, still believing in DIO rather than telling Joseph the truth about DIO's Stand. Jotaro has Star Platinum attack Steely Dan, only for Joseph to be simultaneously thrown back. Steely Dan reveals he has used his microscopic Stand The Lovers to enter Joseph's ear, where it causes any pain inflicted on himself to be amplified and sent to Joseph, even paying a child to hit him with a stick to prove he is not lying. He also reveals that The Lovers will begin implating a flesh bud which will kill Joseph in 10 minutes. Jotaro, though angry, restrains himself as he caters to Steely Dan's whims to prevent him from hurting his grandfather. Meanwhile, Joseph, Kakyoin, and Polnareff seek out a television so Joseph can use Hermit Purple to make an image of the inside of his brain, allowing Kakyoin and Polnareff to shrink down their Stands to enter his body and locate The Lovers in order to save his life.

As Jotaro continues to put up with Steely Dan's whims, Kakyoin and Polnareff's Stands arrive in Joseph's brain where The Lovers and the flesh bud is. Although Polnareff acts first, he is hurt when the Lovers uses Joseph's brain cells to disguise himself as Heirophant Green and make several dummies of itself, leaving them unable to determine which one is the real Stand. Elsewhere, Jotaro shines Steely Dan's shoes, and takes a beating from him, all while taking note of everything he is doing for him so he can make Steely Dan pay later. He is enraged when he takes a beating because Steely Dan forced him to steal from a jewelery shop. In Joseph's brain, Kakyoin manages to use Heirophant Green to find and attack the real Stand and force it out of Joseph's body, giving Joseph the opportunity to destroy the flesh bud in his brain with Hamon. Realizing he has been defeated, Steely Dan tries to divert Jotaro's attention so The Lovers can enter him instead, but he is quickly spotted and caught by Star Platinum. In desperation, Steely Dan tries to have The Lovers enter a young girl's ear, but it is stopped by Heirophant Green's tentacle, which Kakyoin attached before it escaped. This stops Steely Dan's movements completely, allowing Jotaro to finally get his revenge for everything Steely Dan put him through.

After the group eventually manages to get on their way, Jotaro and Kakyoin feel like someone is watching them, but cannot find anyone suspicious. Once they realize that the sun is still in the sky, even at 8 o'clock in the evening, with the temperature rapidly increasing, the group realizes what they thought was the sun is actually the Stand the Sun. Kakyoin attempts to judge the distance of the Stand, but comes under attack from the Sun, which also ruins their water supply. All seems lost, particularly to Joseph when his companions all begin to laugh, which he worries is a heat stroke induced delirium, but Kakyoin clues him in on their discovery. He has found a rock in the middle of the desert identical to another, and when Jotaro throws a rock in its direction, a crack seemingly appears in the sky, and the Sun is defeated, restoring the night sky. The group goes over to the crack to find the Sun's user, Arabia Fats, out cold, having been hiding behind a mirrored duck blind to keep the group from spotting him.

Suddenly, the Death tarot card appears, and he is attacked by its image, the Stand Death 13, killing the dog, before Polnareff wakes him up to tell him that they are on the way out of town. Kakyoin becomes concerned when he finds his hand has been cut in his sleep, and more so when he spots the dog he saw in his dreams, killed in the same manner as he saw in the dream. When the two catch up with the others, Joseph is arguing with a man he had planned to rent a plane from, who has now refused to let him go as they need to get a baby to the hospital. Joseph offers to take the child with them, and a woman with the child agrees. As the group takes off, the woman says she must find the child's mother, admitting that the child, Mannish Boy,[j] is not her own, and she was scared of his fangs. While in flight, both Kakyoin and Polnareff fall asleep and find themselves at the amusement park, again. Kakyoin tries to warn Polnareff that he was attacked in his dreams by a Stand, using the dead dog as proof, but Polnareff does not seem to pay much attention, until Death 13 makes itself known once more, attacking the two of them. They find that in their dreams they cannot summon their Stands to fight back, but before Death 13 lands a mortal blow on Polnareff, Joseph wakes him up to have him change the baby's diaper, leaving Kakyoin on his own. As Death 13 is revealed to be the Stand of Mannish Boy, Kakyoin cuts his own arm, as he thrashes about in his sleep, causing Joseph to crash the plane. As the team sets up camp to prepare for rescue, Kakyoin sees that he has cut the words "Baby Stand" into his arm, leading him to realize that the child they have been taking with them is their attacker. He tries to warn the others, but they do not believe him, as Mannish Boy is pleased that his plans to kill the group are succeeding.

After failing to convince everyone with the message on his arm, Kakyoin attempts to attack Mannish Boy, but he is knocked out by Polnareff, who believes he has gone insane. Upon falling asleep, Jotaro, Joseph, and Polnareff end up in the dream amusement park, which Polnareff remembers, and where they are all subjected to the whims of Death 13. Fortunately for them, Kakyoin, who had summoned Heirophant Green before he was knocked out, is able to bring him into the dream world to fight against Death 13. Mannish Boy attempts to use the dream world to his advantage and slice Heirophant Green in half, but Kakyoin manages to instead send his Stand into Death 13's ear, forcing Mannish Boy to heal his wounds and accept defeat. The next morning, as everyone else forgets what happened in the dream, Kakyoin decides to spare Mannish Boy and leave him in a nearby town, making sure that he does not dare try anything again by mixing the child's feces into his food that Joseph later feeds him.

Polnareff, still struck with grief over him causing Avdol's death, runs away. On the shore of the island, Polnareff discovers an aged lamp that, after he rubs it, causes a genie named Cameo to appear. Cameo grants Polnareff three wishes, with Polnareff being skeptical until a wish for money causes a treasure chest full of gold coins to appear. Wondering if his wishes can bring people back from the dead, Polnareff wishes that his sister Cherie and Avdol were brought back to life. Cherie seems to be revived, only for her to viciously attack Polnareff to consume his flesh. As Cameo explains, he is actually the Stand Judgement, who can create zombie-like creatures from the earth based on the wisher's desires. Polnareff, terrified, tries to use his final wish to wish Cherie away. However, Cameo tells Polnareff he had already used his third wish: to revive Avdol.

Corresponding with Polnareff's third wish, Cameo makes a clay doll of Avdol, who joins the Cherie doll in attacking Polnareff, biting off his flesh. Before the dolls can kill off Polnareff, he is suddenly saved by the real Avdol, who had actually survived his encounter with Hol Horse as the seemingly fatal bullet had only grazed him. With the two managing to overcome the dolls, Avdol brings out the full strength of Magician's Red against Cameo's Judgement, effectively disippating it. After the fight, Polnareff and Avdol find a piece of bamboo sticking out from the ground, surmising that the real Cameo is hidden below. The pair drop spiders and mud down to block his breathing, and they finishing by urinating into the bamboo, which forces him to the surface, where Avdol properly deals with him. After reuniting with the group, Polnareff is shocked to find that the others knew Avdol was alive the entire time, keeping it a secret from him to prevent the enemy from finding out. Avdol further reveals he had disguised himself as his father in order to purchase a submarine for the group.

As the submarine is put into chaos from the Stand's attacks, the submarine begins to leak and sink. Jotaro answers another call from Suzi Q, who becomes concerned about what she hears.

After finding some scuba equipment, Joseph gives a quick lesson before the group prepares to exit the submarine. However, they discover High Priestess has already caught on to them by disguising itself as Polnareff's regulator, with Joseph and Kakyoin narrowly managing to save him from certain death. The group manages to exit the submarine safely and start swimming across some rocks, only to discover it is High Priestess disguising itself as the sea bed, sucking them inside its mouth. As the Stand's user, Midler, gloats from the surface, the group tries to play to Midler's femininity, but this only serves to anger her further, leading her to try to crush Jotaro between High Priestess' teeth. However, Jotaro manages to break the teeth with Star Platinum and they all break free from High Priestess' mouth, escaping to the surface, where Midler is incapacitated (and disfigured) as a result of Jotaro's attack. Having finally arrived Egypt, Jotaro and Joseph assure Suzi Q of their safety before joining the others in their pursuit of DIO.

Jotaro's group meet up with a pair of representatives from the Speedwagon Foundation, who have brought with them not only supplies, but also a new member of the group, a Boston terrier named Iggy. Despite his small stature and rude behavior, it is shown that Iggy possesses the Stand "The Fool", which enables him to control sand. Joseph is also informed of Holly's situation, learning that she only has a couple of weeks left. Shortly after resuming their journey, Jotaro's group discover the Speedwagon Foundation's helicopter has crashed. Upon examining one of the representatives, they discover he has somehow drowned while the other has been completely dehydrated. The group attempts to give the man some water from a canister, only for a water-based Stand to emerge from it and kill him. The group attempts to hide from the Stand, only for it to travel through the sand and surprise them, injuring Kakyoin's eyes. The Stand, which is being controlled from afar by a blind man named N'Doul, becomes briefly curious about Iggy when he suspects the dog can sense his attacks, but returns his focus on the rest of the group by dragging the car they are sitting on down into the sand to kill them.

Upon realizing that N'Doul is using his sense of hearing to track the group with his Stand, named after the Egyptian god Geb, Avdol attempts to set up a trap, but N'Doul figures it out at the last second, avoiding an attack from Magician's Red and injuring Avdol. Realizing Iggy can detect N'Doul's attack, Jotaro coerces him into summoning The Fool, which he discovers can glide. Jotaro hitches a ride against Iggy's wishes so they can head towards N'Doul to stop him from attacking. As they get closer, both Iggy's stubbornness and N'Doul's cunning puts Jotaro at risk, but Jotaro manages to overcome this by using Star Platinum to grab Iggy and throw him in N'Doul's direction. This forces Iggy to protect himself with his Stand while it also manages to distract N'Doul long enough for Jotaro to get behind him and knock him out. Although Jotaro's attack is not fatal, N'Doul commits suicide through the use of Geb so he cannot be interrogated over DIO's plans. Before his death, N'Doul reveals that his Stand is Geb, after the Egyptian god, and he is only one of nine such Stand users, a fact that shocks Jotaro. After burying N'Doul, Jotaro confronts Iggy, who shows his true colors to Jotaro. Elsewhere, a travelling manga artist asks to see a local boy's comic book titled Oingo Boingo Brothers Adventure and discovers its odd contents, but is scared off by the boy's older brother. The brothers prepare to head off to Aswan to confront Jotaro and the others, but the younger brother reveals what the man had read and they decide to wait for the next bus, as it is soon revealed that the boy's comic book had predicted the artist's death.

Boingo reveals to Oingo that Thoth has predicted that Jotaro, Joseph, and Polnareff will drink poisoned tea, so Oingo disguises himself as a café's waiter to poison the group's tea, but is almost thwarted when Joseph desires a cola and the plans are run completely awry when Iggy causes a commotion. Surprised by the events, Oingo and Boingo consult Thoth, again, after assaulting a man and taking his money, and discover that Thoth has predicted that Jotaro will die from a bomb hidden in an orange. Oingo prepares the trap once more, planting the prophesized bomb in the group's car, but he is caught offguard by the return of Joseph and Polnareff, forcing him to disguise himself as Jotaro. He joins the two in the car, and both he and Boingo soon realize that while he is still disguised as Jotaro, he might be the one Thoth predicted would be affected by the bomb. Oingo manages to escape the car, but the bomb finds its way back to him and he is injured, just as the real Jotaro rejoins his grandfather and Polnareff.

Meanwhile, a young man named Chaka discovers a mysterious sword that only he appears to be able to draw out of its sheath. The sword then suddenly moves on its own, killing Chaka's family members before revealing its identity to be that of the Anubis Stand, who declares Chaka as its master and sends him to pursue Jotaro's group. Chaka soon comes across Polnareff, who had gotten separated from the others while chasing after Iggy, and the two face off against each other, with Polnareff struggling against the sword's ability to pass through anything to reach its target. When Chaka attempts a surprise attack, Polnareff uses a secret technique to deflect a piece of Silver Chariot's sword into Chaka's neck, knocking him unconscious. When Polnareff insprects the sword for himself, he comes close to being swayed by its influence before Jotaro and the others arrive. As Jotaro and Polnareff stop by a barber shop on their way to take the sword to a police station, Anubis possesses the barber, Khan, who prepares to kill Polnareff.

Realizing the sword is the Stand Anubis itself, Polnareff tries to defend himself against from Khan, which proves difficult as Anubis has memorized all of Silver Chariot's moves from before. After Polnareff's last-ditch defense fails, Jotaro manages to snap the blade in half using Star Platinum, seemingly stopping Anubis and ending his control of Khan. However, just as Jotaro and Polnareff plan to throw the sword into the Nile, a police officer interferes, causing Polnareff to inadvertedly draw the sword and become possessed by Anubis himself. Jotaro struggles to fight against Anubis, who possesses not only Polnareff's speed and Stand abilities, but also knowledge of every move Star Platinum uses against him. Anubis manages to stab Jotaro's stomach with the sword and proceeds to push it in further, but Jotaro uses this opportunity to pin the sword in place while Star Platinum smashes it to pieces. Anubis manages to possess a young boy with the remaining half of the blade and attempts to throw himself at Polnareff, only for Iggy to trip the boy up, resulting in Anubis ending up at the bottom of the Nile. Elsewhere, a girl in a red hood makes her move.

Meanwhile, as Jotaro's group arrive in Luxor, Joseph gets shocked by a strange rock with an electrical socket while visiting the bathroom. Joseph decides to have the group stay in Luxor for the night, unaware that he appears to be admitting a magnetic force, causing metallic objects to be drawn towards him. The next morning, Joseph quickly realizes he has become a human magnet as a result of yesterday's shock, causing anything metallic to become a potentially lethal weapon for him. This is revealed to be the work of Mariah, wielder of the magnetic Stand Bastet, who traps Joseph on an escalator, resulting in him almost becoming strangled to death before Avdol rescues him. Joseph and Avdol pursue Mariah into the ladies' restroom, only for Joseph's magnetism to get them into more trouble. As they continue their pursuit, Avdol realises that he has also come under Bastet's influence while stopping the escalator, with both he and Joseph becoming stuck together due to their magnetism.

However, the duo manage to utilise their magnetism to their own advantage, crushing all of Mariah's bones with their combined weight until she passes out and relinquishes her power.

Along with his smaller stature, Polnareff's mind starts reverting to that of a child as well, causing him to gradually lose his adult memories. Unable to ask Jotaro for help, Polnareff is only able to defend himself from Alessi using Silver Chariot, who is also affected by Set's power. Barely managing to escape Alessi after Silver Chariot's blade hits his neck by chance, Polnareff is picked up by a woman who takes her to her home to treat his injuries.

Shōgo Yasukawa March 13, 2015
Upon arriving in Cairo, Jotaro's group heads to a café where they come across a man named D'Arby who claims to know where DIO's mansion is. Not willing to give up the information for free, D'Arby suggests they should instead gamble for it with their souls on the line. Polnareff goes first, and the two bet on which of two pieces of fish a cat would go for first. Polnareff loses, and D'Arby makes good on the bet by using his Stand Osiris to steal Polnareff's soul and implant it in a poker chip, with the cat soon revealed to be his pet. The group realizes they have come across one of DIO's assassins, so Joseph puts up his own soul in a wager against D'Arby next. They bet to see who will cause a glass full to the brim to overflow by dropping coins into it. On his turn, Joseph tries to outcheat D'Arby by dropping more liquid into the glass, knowing that on D'Arby's turn it will overflow, but D'Arby easily puts his coin in. Joseph cannot figure out how his cheat did not work, and gives up in his mind, leaving D'Arby to steal his soul as well. Jotaro discovers D'Arby had used a small piece of chocolate to change the way the glass appeared to be full and let it melt, but he decides to step and face D'Arby next, and tries to beat the man at his own game: poker.

D'Arby prepares his and Jotaro's game of poker by splitting up Polnareff and Joseph's souls into six poker chips each he will use to bet with, giving Jotaro a set of six to represent his own soul. Jotaro shows off how precise Star Platinum's eyesight is by predicting the deal of the cards, and catches D'Arby as his about to cheat by second dealing, leading Jotaro to pick a boy near the café to deal for them. Jotaro loses three chips in his first hand against D'Arby, and in the second hand D'Arby is dealt four kings, but Jotaro appears to have not once looked at his cards. D'Arby begins to worry, as he knows the boy and everyone else in the café are in his employ, and the boy is sure he has dealt Jotaro a bum hand, but Jotaro raises all of his soul and Avdol's soul on his bet, while using Star Platinum to get himself a cigarette and a drink. D'Arby believes he is bluffing, seeing his bet and raising it, betting the rest of Jotaro's soul and all of Joseph and Polnareff's souls. Jotaro sees his bet with Kakyoin's soul and then raises with the soul of his mother Holly. D'Arby, unsure if Jotaro has managed to use Star Platinum to change out all of his cards to a better hand, mentally folds as he goes catatonic. All of the souls he won in bets are released, allowing Joseph and Polnareff to recover as Avdol looks at Jotaro's cards, realizing that he had been dealt a bad hand. Jotaro admits he never once looked at his cards to keep his cool, but laments that they will not be able to interrogate D'Arby for information on DIO.

Hol Horse meets up with DIO, who gives him one final chance to defeat Jotaro's group, making it clear what the consequences of failure are. To accomplish his goals, Hol Horse kidnaps Boingo and takes him with him to Cairo, coercing him to team up with him so that he combine Thoth's prediction abilities with his Emperor's power. Hol Horse doubts this power at first, but soon discovers that not even his own willpower can resist the predictions Thoth gives out. Meanwhile, as Jotaro's group try to find information about DIO's hideout, Joseph learns that Holly's condition has worsened and has only a few more days to live. Thoth gives Hol Horse an absurd prediction that he will have a chance to kill the group by sticking his fingers up Polnareff's nose, which he is obviously sceptical about. However, when Polnareff gets the jump on him and almost discovers Boingo hiding, Hol Horse gives into fate and shoves his fingers up Polnareff's nose, leaving him uncertain how the rest of the prophecy is supposed to be fulfilled.

However, upon being exposed, Hol Horse spills some olive oil which causes a truck to skid out of control and almost hit Jotaro and the others, bringing Thoth's prediction to fruition. Hiding from Jotaro, the only one not left unconscious by the crash, Hol Horse and Boingo follow Thoth's next prediction, which states they can kill Jotaro by shooting Hol Horse's bullets through the pipe system at noon sharp. With only a few minutes until noon, the duo rush to get the pipes open and launch their bullets through it. However, Polnareff's lucky sneeze helps Jotaro to dodge the bullets, which end up turning around and hitting Hol Horse instead, while the only thing Jotaro gets hit with is a splash of water. Just as Boingo considers a change of heart, he inadvertently ends up angering Iggy and winds up hospitalized along with Hol Horse.

He is subsequently found by a fully recovered Kakyoin, who reunites with the group after having a Speedwagon Foundation doctor treat Iggy's injuries.

There, D'Arby reveals a collection of dolls which, similar to the Elder D'Arby's poker chips, contain to souls of people he has defeated.

Jotaro steps up to face against D'Arby in a baseball video game, wagering his soul against Kakyoin's, despite having never played a video game in his life. Although Jotaro gets two of his batters knocked out at the start, he soon figures out the controls by his third batter and scores four home runs, though D'Arby uses a change of pitcher to catch Jotaro's third batter out. As D'Arby goes on the offensive, managing to predict Jotaro's moves after declaring his bats and scoring three home runs, Joseph assumes that D'Arby has the power to read people's minds, though Jotaro decides to face D'Arby at his own game by declaring his next pitch.

D'Arby uses Atum to peer into Jotaro's soul, which he uses to determine whether Jotaro is lying or not. However, contrary to his deduction that Jotaro was not lying about his pitch, his pitches turn out to be different from expected. This leads D'Arby to suspect that Jotaro is cheating somehow, though in a way that cannot be deciphered by his Stand's reliance on yes/no questions. As D'Arby desperately tries to find out how Jotaro is cheating, Jotaro wins more homeruns, resulting in D'Arby subconsciously admitting defeat and releasing Kakyoin's soul. At last, D'Arby discovers that Joseph was the one cheating on Jotaro's behalf the entire time, using Hermit Purple to control the video game while Jotaro handled Atum's questions. While Jotaro dishes swift punishment to D'Arby, opening up a way out of the game room, DIO's right-hand man, Vanilla Ice,[n] cuts off his own head to provide DIO with the blood needed to complete his assimilation of Jonathan's body, but DIO turns it down and brings him back to life, stating he will get blood from someone else and sending him to attack the others. Meanwhile, Polnareff, Avdol, and Iggy venture inside the mansion, where Iggy manages to immediately take down a Stand user named Kenny G[o] to stop the illusions he was creating. Immediately afterwards, however, Avdol is caught off guard and killed by Vanilla Ice's Stand, Cream, who disintegrates his body with the void inside his mouth, leaving Polnareff and Iggy stunned.

Confident in The World's superiority over Star Platinum, DIO stops time to try and finish Jotaro. However, he discovers that, due to Star Platinum being the same type of Stand as The World, Jotaro appears to be able to both perceive him and move himself, albeit only slightly, while time is stopped. DIO initially assumes this to be trick Jotaro pulled by planting a magnet on him to move his fingers, but this turns out to be a bluff by Jotaro, who uses Star Platinum to counterattack during stopped time. Realising that Jotaro can only move for a brief moment while time is stopped, DIO stays out of his attack range and attacks using time-stopped knives, managing to land some hits on Jotaro. While Jotaro, managing to survive thanks to some magazines he hid under his clothes, is forced to play dead until he recovers, Polnareff attempts to stop DIO from finishing Jotaro off but is knocked out by him. Drawing DIO's attention away from Polnareff, Jotaro continues to play dead, going as far as to use Star Platinum to stop his own heart, until DIO gets close enough, allowing him to bash DIO's skull and paralyse him. However, DIO tricks Jotaro into punching him over to where Joseph is, allowing him to drain his blood and complete his merging with Jonathan's body.

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[q] 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.

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[aa] 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.

Overcome by his curiosity, Rohan lays a trap for Kinoto so he can see his back. The moment he does, however, a Stand possessing its own will named Cheap Trick[ab] 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. Receiving a pummeling from a vengeful Josuke, Miyamoto ends up trapped in the form of a book.

Unable to get Koichi to take him seriously without exposing his back and passing Cheap Trick onto him, Rohan attempts to make his way to Morioh Grand Hotel without letting anyone see his back. Cheap Trick attempts to attract several cats and dogs to attack Rohan and witness his back, but they are shooed off by Koichi, who eventually comes to believe Rohan's story. Koichi attempts to forcibly remove Cheap Trick using Echoes Act 3, only to discover that doing so will damage Rohan's back as well. 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. 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 further cameras and videotapes that would threaten to expose his identity.

Kira inadvertently kills Hayato before learning from Yoshihiro that Rohan and the others now have Kosaku Kawajiri as one of their suspects. 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. As the explosion goes off inside of Rohan's body, Hayato suddenly finds himself sent back in time to an hour earlier due to Bites the Dust's effects.

Hayato tries to avoid meeting Rohan, only to discover the events that occurred last time will still happen even without him being there, resulting in Rohan's death by Bites the Dust's explosion. When Josuke's group 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 he can only stop Kira by either killing him or forcing 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.
