>>2552699Oh god we're gonna die
>>2552699November 11th, 1994.Arriving at the Italian airport, you and Jotaro sat down at a bench near the cab rank, where Polnareff told you to wait for him."Rome huh?" Jotaro ponders. "It appears to be a pretty nice place if you ignore the crime rate. Another country to write down on our list of places to visit when we have the time.""I think it's best for us to learn Italian first before a proper vacation. Pol said they don't have a high opinion on foreigners since they're easily fooled by the residents." You replied."Excuse me sir, would you mind telling me what time it is?" Jotaro asks an italian man passing by in english, only to hear what sounded like a rude response from him."Impara la mia lingua, turista pigro!""Yare Yare daze..." Jotaro groans after seeing your point being proven. "Might as well watch the snow fall while we wait for Polnareff.""He did say he couldn't give away his location since the arrow guy might already be tracking him down, so it's not like we have a better choice..."Jean Pierre was purposefully vague on his information, preferring to discuss the mission in private and only telling you to wait for him at the airport. While it's something awfully cautious coming from Polnareff, you agreed on waiting in order to not jeopardize his 5 year long research.Oh well, at least you can have a word with Jotaro while Pol isn't here.>How do you think Jolyne is holding up?>Have you been training with Star Platinum like you promised to?>Why do you think Pol is taking so long?>Write-in.
>>2552742>How do you think Jolyne is holding up?
>>2552742>Have you been training with Star Platinum like you promised to?
>>2552742>>Why do you think Pol is taking so long?
>>2552742>Why do you think Pol is taking so long?
>>2552747>>2552749>>2552765>>2552818>>2552855"How do you think Jolyne is holding up? I'm starting to regret placing her with Kakyoin after the 5th time he called asking how to calm her down when she's throwing a tantrum."She's 2 years old, tantrums are normal at that age due to babies not knowing how to deal with their emotions properly." Jotaro says, picking up a pamphlet talking about The Colosseum. "Kakyoin is more smart enough to take care of her for a few days.""I hope you're right. Although we'll have to pay him a new keyboard when we get back in Japan because she spilled strawberry juice on his old one, she gets a bit rough when playing around, if it wasn't for the doll collection I had back when I was younger she would be out of toys by now.That phase of hers likely won't last very long, but it's a shame Kak had to see the worst of it." You state, missing your daughter."Don't worry, she's still a lot safer in Japan than over here. A mafia getting involved with stand arrows is probably the worst possible combination we could have encountered.""True, maybe that's the reason Polnareff is taking so long to show up." You worryingly mention Jean Pierre to your husband."He said something about receiving some help from the Speedwagon Foundation before arriving here, but it's still a bit weird for him to be late for an important meeting. Whatever it is, I hope he's been keeping his stand in shape.""Speaking of which, are you still training with Star Platinum like you promised to? I know Jolyne and work keeps you too busy to train with me, but you better not be slacking off.""I am not, Star Platinum is doing great and I have honed my stamina to the point where I can stop time by 4 seconds with relative ease.""You were able to do 5 seconds before though. Sounds like slacking off to me!" You teasingly poke his nose with Karma Chameleon."Really? How have you been with both Hamon and Karma recently? I doubt you've had enough time to get stronger with both of those ever since the workload got the better of you." Jotaro teases you back.>My Hamon got a bit weaker, but Karma is at peak performance.>Karma got weaker, but my Hamon is really strong now!>I managed to keep them at a reasonable level, but neither abilities have improved much.
>>2552860>My Hamon got a bit weaker, but Karma is at peak performance.Hamon is a lot easier to train up again than stands are.
>>2552860>My Hamon got a bit weaker, but Karma is at peak performance.
>>2552860>I managed to keep them at a reasonable level, but neither abilities have improved much.
>>2552860>My Hamon got a bit weaker, but Karma is at peak performance.Unless we get a return of the Kars event or Pucci gets his hand on Dio's stone mask Hamon is not gonna be as useful as Karma will be these coming parts. Though we're Hamon going enough to make Hitomi look like Lisa Lisa in her 50s for sure.
>>2552869>>2552876>>2552879>>2552871Ok then, feel free to choose which one of her stand stats Hitomi decided to improve on Karma Chameleon.>Power>Speed>Durability>PrecisionBe warned that choosing one stat will slightly downgrade another one.
>>2552911>precisionIts the best for our ability
>>2552911>PrecisionBecause it opens the door for a wider range of absorbtion hijinks. Also she can increase Karma's power/durability by absorbing a tough substance right?
>>2552911>>Precisionyou gotta get the precision man, for more precise doctor things
>>2552922>>2552923>>2552924>>2552925"My Hamon got a bit weaker, but Karma is at peak performance! You would be surprised to know how many patients I helped out with a bit of mending here and there from Karma's ability. She should be as precise as Star Platinum now." Karma demonstrates this by switching her colors around by touching different parts of your clothing."I see. Her base durability did get a bit worse when we last sparred, but nothing your absorption can't cover up, judging by how frequently you've used this I'm surprised you're not the one dying Jolyne's hair blonde.""Hair dye is bad for a kid her age Jotaro, I had to use a few strands of hair for her to look that way. It was hard, but she seemed so happy about it that I don't regret it one bit." You reveal that you've been playing around with Jolyne's hair, with Jotaro giving you a surprised glare."What, you think I would trust a salon to take care of her hairdo? At least it's cheaper." You shrug."If you say so... I'm thinking about placing her in school in January. The old man suggested homeschooling her like his grandmother did to him, but I don't think I want Jolyne to be like Joseph was when he was younger."You were about to give your opinion on Jolyne's tutoring, but the sight of a familiar buff frenchman walking towards you while holding a VHS camera called your attention."Hey, sorry to keep you waiting. The Foundation sent me some help so I had to contact them first." Polnareff gleefully hugged you both. "Cant believe it's been 2 years since the wedding! I didn't even get to see Jolyne, I missed you guys!"Despite not looking any different than when you first saw him, Polnareff seemed to be a lot calmer and more collected in his speech and mannerisms than ever before, the old Jean Pierre would probably be jumping around or shouting his lungs out after seeing his friend again, but judging by his casual approach he took when greeting you, Pol seems to have changed the most out of you three.>What's up Pol?>Took you long enough you big haired bastard!>What's the camera for?>I didn't get to see Michel either! We should let our kids play together some day.>What's the situation here?>Write-in.
>>2552994>What's the situation here?
>>2552994>Took you long enough you big haired bastard!>Hug>What's the situation here?
>>2552994>>I didn't get to see Michel either! We should let our kids play together some day.>>What's the situation here?
>>2552994This >>2553006, but also throw in>I didn't get to see Michel either! We should let our kids play together some day.So when are we gonna know what Michel looks like? I'm thinking Pol's white hair with his mother's dark skin tone for max >>2552994This >>2553006, but also throw in>I didn't get to see Michel either! We should let our kids play together some day.So when are we gonna know what Michel looks like? I'm thinking Pol's white hair with his mother's dark skin tone for max exoticity
>>2553033Oh shit, menger sponges inbound!!
>>2553037Would be nice for a helpful King Crimson to come along and erase the time where I managed to double post ''in the same comment'' kek
>>2553033I would say kid Pol could be a good reference for Michel but Polnareff looked ugly as sin when he was a kid. A mixed looking kid with white hair is close enough to his appearance.
>>2553053>A mixed looking kid with white hair is close enough to his appearance.Man if he grows up a bishonen I can't shake the thought that he'll look Marik from Yu-gi-oh.
>>2552994>Took you long enough you big haired bastard!>What's the situation here?
>>2553001>>2553006>>2553014>>2553089"Good to see you in one piece, Polnareff." Jotaro returned the gesture."Took you long enough you big haired bastard! I'm not showing you Jolyne until you let Michel play with her!" You hugged him back before provoking him for old time's sake."Malena actually wanted me to take him to Italy since I kept telling stories about Europe for the boy, but since the mission was too dangerous for kids I figured I could record some sort of video diary with a camera. It should be useful to look for Passione too!" Polnareff moves over to his car, where he drove you and Jotaro to his secret hideout."So Passione is the name of the mafia gang? It sounds a bit silly." Jotaro said to his longtime friend."You haven't told us that much about the gang itself, what's the situation here?" You figured it was about time Polnareff explained things further."That's the scary part about this, I was actually trying to contact you guys for the past 3 days, but it's almost as if everything around me is halting my connection to the outside world: Telephones, computers, mails, nothing. I'm suspicious that the mafia gang and his leader might be onto me.""Already? But you've only been here for 3 days! Do they really have enough resources to track you down under such a short time period?" You ask."I've worked with data mining for the past 5 years and still have no idea on how they were able to find me after taking all the necessary precautions, but seeing how everything around me is acting all weird at the exact same time I needed to contact the Foundation, I'm hoping for the worse. Maybe one of my information brokers sold me out, I don't know.">How did you talk to the Foundation then?>How much do you know about Passione?>Any signs of the arrow yet?>Write-in.
>>2553096>How much do you know about Passione?>Any signs of the arrow yet?
>>2553096>How did you talk to the Foundation then?>Any signs of the arrow yet?>How much do you know about Passione?
>>2553096>I should use hamon to check for stand users real quick, just in case.Considering their link to a stand arrow and polnareff's communication issues, it's viable enough to warrant being cautious and paranoid here.After it's done, >How much do you know about Passione?>Any signs of the arrow yet?
>>2553119Oh yeah, we could do that... I forgot we could check.
>>2553096>>How much do you know about Passione?>>Any signs of the arrow yet?>[jk]So....have you met a kid named Haruno?Look all I'm saying is we can't go WRONG with trying to pull out Gold Experience Reqiuem a few years early. We just have to stab him with the arrow a few times! That's basically a tap on the wrist compared to what we did to this dad!
>>2553119Sure, give me a 1d100 roll and I'll add it to the update.
Rolled 94 (1d100)>>2553157still best of three for this, right
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>2553157
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>2553157
>>2553164>>2553166>>2553167>Hitomi: Yeah I let my hamon slip>Also Hitomi: Crits on a hamon searchWell we DID just step into the lion's den here. UNDER PRESSURE go"
>>2553164>first roll is a critWelcome to the... True Man's UNDER PRESSURE
>>2553164>>2553166>>2553167"How did you talk to the Foundation then? I thought phone calls and the internet weren't working out for ya.""They were the ones that chose my hiding spot, so going through radio silence for a few days would obviously make them think something went wrong. They even offered to escort me back to safety and take it from here, but dropping my search halfway through while Passione is this close to tumbling down just doesn't feel right. Going away now means the boss would be a lot harder to track down again after he already discovered that there was a private company looking for his identity.""Makes sense, but it's still risky to hide on enemy territory. How much of Passione do you know about to refuse an offer like that? Did you find the arrow?""Not exactly, I know the leader of the bunch is named Diavolo and that one of his affiliates has the golden arrow with him, but I wasn't able to find out which one of the dozens of members had the arrow with them. What I did discover about Passione is a lot worse than I had in mind: We're not dealing with the average thug here, aside from the usual killers and robbers, Diavolo's authority is powerful enough control the local authorities and the government itself, he just bribes them to turn a blind eye while he sells drugs to kids so he can recruit them to Passione!" Polnareff parked his car near his hideout, a small shed near the cliffside."So if he knows you're here despite being isolated from the city, how are you supposed to meet up with Diavolo?" Jotaro asked."With this thing, of course." Polnareff took the beetle arrow from the trunk of his car. A non-stand user of Passione informed me that Diavolo is at a hotel near Ostia beach after taking him down. He thinks I'll be going alone, but with Jotaro and you here we'll be more than able to--""Polnareff, can you hold still for a second?" You cut him off after noticing something at the top of his pompadour."Huh? Is there something on my hair?" He crouches down, only to get a hamon chop to the head, instantly dismantling a white, wireless transmitter hidden in his scalp."Yeah, turns out the guy you interrogated found a way to spy on you." You crouch down to check on the broken recorder, completely ruining Jean Pierre's original plan."Good grief Polnareff, don't you wash your hair when taking a shower? How didn't you notice this thing on your head?"
>>2553316Th-this is kind of why I wanted to do the search BEFORE talking about other, potentially sensitive things
>>2553316"Shit,... Well at least it was a mic instead of a camera, so he didn't see that I had one arrow with me, I thought that since stand users are naturally attracted to each other bringing the arrow along with me should only make the magnetism stronger, but after knowing how Diavolo was spying on me I don't know if I should still consider this as an advantage... I guess even know that he knows there are more stand users on the way he still doesn't know our abilities, so at least we have something going for us. " Polnareff tries to look on the bright side. "Additionally, he didn't hear about the two other stand users the Foundation sent here!""You asked for even more reinforcements after contacting us? Better safe than sorry I guess." Jotaro says, opening the door to the shed to look for the stand users present inside. "Alright, who's there?">Billy Idol.>Mohhamed Avdol.>Tempest.>Kenji Hisakawa.
>>2553338>Tempest.>Billy Idol.THE DREAM TEAM
>>2553338>Tempest.>Billy Idol....Also what does Billy's stand do again? Something about controlling people right?
>>2553346Rebel Yell is a megaphone stand that distorts people's senses when they hear him shout in it. Since he and Tempest won I'll start writing.
>>2553357I mean, it only makes sense, really. Kenji has to guard the old man, and Avdol has work to do in egypt. The only one's whod really be free to go and not drop what they were doing would be those two, since this is their job.
>>2553339>>2553342>>2553343>>2553346"REBEL YELL--""WAIT WAIT WAIT! IT'S JUST JOTARO! DON'T SHOUT!" Tempest takes the stand away from Billy Idol in the nick of time."That's Jotaro? I barely recognized him without the black jacket. Guess the guy finally got tired of wearing blue, black and purple every day huh?"Sporting the Speedwagon Foundation uniform and their signature gigantic pair of glasses, the clumsy duo walked out of the shack to greet their superiors."Hey there you two! Ready to fight some evil doers?" You wave at them with Karma Chameleon."We're already leaving? But we just got done packing Polnareff's stuff..." Tempest whined, being pulled at the arm by Billy."Tempest and I aren't used to fighting stands like you guys, do you really think this is a good idea?" Billy cautiously asks Polnareff."You'll be safe with us, just take a look at how many stand users we have in our win count, what are the odds of Diavolo being stronger than all of us combined?" The chariot soothes their worries as he entred back in his car."Billy do you mind taking the driver's seat? I wanted to record something for Michel." Polnareff tinkered with his VHS camera before departing to Ostia. "I haven't made a video for him since yesterday when I interrogated the Passione member, so I think it would be cool to show him who his dad likes to hang out with.">Sure.>We should stay focused on Diavolo.
>>2553416>Sure.Never mess around with stand users. We're always in a life or death scenario, so leaving something behind just in case for the worst case scenario... Also, pol, please stop raising these death flags
>>2553416>>We should stay focused on Diavolo.Pol my man treating this like a vacation is how you're gonna lose your legs. Plus won't Passione have realised by now that we've found their bug? They might be prompted to act soon.
>>2553416>We should stay focused on Diavolo.No offense to you polnareff, but I'm too wary about the situation. You JUST had a bug on you destroyed, after all.
>>2553432It's a quick video while someone is driving. I want to say it wouldn't hurt, but... stands. Still, don't think there's too much harm.
>>2553416>>We should stay focused on Diavolo.Last minute videos are super death flags
>>2553416>We should stay focused on Diavolo.
>>2553416>We should stay focused on Diavolo.Also if the video somehow falls into the hands of an enemy we don't want them getting any information they could use against us from it
>>2553416>We should stay focused on Diavolo.We can do all the fun stuff after we’ve dealt with Diavolo.
>>2553432>>2553433>>2553453>>2553501>>2553509>>2553536"No offense Polnareff, but I think we should stay focused on Diavolo. It's the reason why we came all the way over to Rome in the first place." You warned the family man."It won't take that long, it's just going to be a short vid to kill his curiosity. It shouldn't be longer than 2 minutes tops." Polnareff argues against it."We'll have plenty of time to say hello to Michel once we take care of Diavolo, as soon as Passione finds out about their bug being destroyed they're going to put their guard up, especially if this meetup of his turns out to be a trap." Jotaro rationalized the issue for him;"Fine, I guess I could wait for a bit..." Polnareff leans back on his chair, letting Billy drive the car for him."That's it? Only a light hearted explanation was all it took for you to be convinced? Malena really did wonders for your patience didn't she?." Tempest points it out, happy to see the non-conflict end pacifically.After about an hour you arrived at the snowy Ostia beach with the group, parking the car next to a snowy hill, you start your search for Diavolo by asking Polnareff for directions."Did he say anything about a specific part of the beach? Close to the pier? Maybe next to a fishing boat?""Nope, this place tends to be pretty isolated on snowy days, so that's likely why he chose it, spotting him in the middle of this snowy field will be a piece of cake, but escaping to ask for help is another story." Polnareff explained."Hitomi, you were able to use a Hamon radar with water before right? Think you could use this on the snow?" Jotaro brainstorms a great way to hunt for the mob boss.""Sure!" You charge your body with the yellow sun energy and melt the snow beneath you into water, forming a small puddle to aid the pursuit."The waves are flowing in the direction of the car..." Billy raises an eyebrow. "That can't be right, we got out of the car a few minutes ago, there's no way he could have sneaked past us without being noticed.""The Hamon radar hasn't failed on me once." You refute."If she says Diavolo is by the car, it's enough for me to believe." Jotaro brings out his stand and uses his precise vision to inspect the empty car. "He could be either behind or under the car, it's hard to say from here.""Good thing the arrow and the camera are with me, how should we approach the guy?" Polnareff summons Silver Chariot.>Charge at the car.>Wait for him to come out.>Try to overdrive him from a distance using the snow.>Something else
>>2553561>Try to overdrive him from a distance using the snow.
>>2553561>>Try to overdrive him from a distance using the snow.
>>2553561>Wait for him to come out.
>>2553561>Try to overdrive him from a distance using the snow.Even if we fuck it up it might be enough to spook him into showing his hand.

>>2553661I mentioned in the previous thread how attacking Diavolo/KC directly while Epitaph was on a case of "See how bad it's going to get." The Hamon penalty helped out a bit too.
>>2553679We need to use Final Countdown on him. He can see 10 seconds ahead, but that woun't tell him that he's on a 5 minute kill clock.
>>2553709... we have a video camera, right? Is it the kind that has a digital clock in the corner...?
>>2553723Does it have to be digital? Jotaro has his watch, doesn't he?

>>2553653"Easy. Just watch this overdrive hit him straight in the--"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHXKRNAFE48"What?"The car's already busted and the Hamon radar suddenly switched over to a new direction."What happened? Did your attack just went through without us seeing it?" Polnareff scratched his head."No way, her attacks aren't that fast, Star Platinum would have been able to see her Hamon moving over to the vehicle." Jotaro responds."Still, I guess it's kinda weird how--""He changed locations! He's right there--" You pointed to the direction the puddle was flowing towards, but a fast blur of what appeared to be Billy Idol's arm was sent flying up into the air, with a red fist impaling his stomach."REBEL YELL!" Billy shrieked inside of his megaphone right into the crimson stand's forehead, only for the rest of his body to be thrown down the cliff, rolling back to the car the Foundation worker was driving."I will not tolerate anyone who attempts to discover my identity! Those who defy me will be killed by the invincible King Crimson's hands!" A ruthless, pink haired man shouted at the group staring at his opponents as if he didn't just brutally punch a hole through a man's chest."DIAVOLO!?" Polnareff turned around in a mixture of shock and fury."BILLY!" Tempest panicked after seeing her lover collapsing under a car, bleeding to death after a single blow.The bizarre looking man starts staring into the strands of his hair, appearing to be slightly angry."Whatever that mortal man did, it appears to have confused Epitaph's ability to read the results." He monologues. "Fate must be trying to test me again by finishing off these fodder enemies without properly seeing the pitfalls of the future. It won't matter, I have evolved beyond humanity's dependency on fate, your stand abilities are irrelevant before King Crimson! I will remain at the apex!"Despite having no clue as to what this insane man is saying, the group feels pretty intimidated to act given how Diavolo easily bodied Billy Idol, but as they start to hear Diavolo's confident speech, the shock and grief are shifted into anger and determination, prompting the team to summon their stands.>Stop time and hit Diavolo.>Take off Silver Chariot's armor and rip him to shreds.>Run to the car to see if it's not too late to heal Billy.>Mark Diavolo with Final Countdown.>Something else.
>>2553802>Stop time and hit Diavolo.
>>2553802>Run to the car to see if it's not too late to heal Billy.
>>2553802>Mark Diavolo with Final Countdown.It's our only hope otherwise we're all gonna die. Maybe while Tempest is doing that Hitomi can rush to Billy?
>just caught up to current thread>we're facing diavolo>why th->>2553802fuuuuu->Mark Diavolo with Final Countdown
>>2553802Wait...Each one of these is for a different person.Why wouldn't each person try to do each thing?>All of them
>>2553802>Mark Diavolo with Final Countdown.While he's still in Tempest's line of sight!
>>2553802Alright, so we need a plan. What we know: he has some sort of teleport? power, or perhaps a power similar to timestop. Jotaro didn't see it, so its porbably not be time stop. And its not moving super fast, else again, jotaro would have seen it. Well, we can mark him with countdown for sure. Just pull out the camera and say we have a video on his identity, then show him or something... I kind of want to take some platinumite and give it over to countdown so the two of them can move in the stopped time and set up the manuever while we go rush billy to try and save his life.
>>2553802>>Mark Diavolo with Final Countdown.It's the best way to win. Once we mark him, we can play defense for 5 minutes.
>>2553802Hitomi runs to the car to try to heal, Jotaro does timestop to try to attack Diavolo, and Pol goes in for the armor-off and an attack? Ooh, and Tempest can always mark him after, especially when it all inevitably fails.
>>25538335 minutes against diavolo is a god damn eternity, just sayin'
>>2553802I'll second this: >>2553834
>>2553833It's not like Jotaro or Polnareff will be getting hits in.
>>2553834>Mark him afterShe needs to mark him straight away, the moment he twigs what he power is she's gonna end up like Billy.>>25538365 minutes is better than trying to hold him off indefinitely. Really the only way to take him down for good is pulling out of Reqiuem stand and it's still a decade too early for Gold Experience Reqiuem. We're just playing to escape with out lives here.

>>2553881>>2553887yeah it fucks me up as well, any time it shows upi mean it is designed to apply to any situation, but its still eerie
>>2553887WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, DOIST?!
>>2553887When King C jumps cuts 10 seconds, does the timer also go down 10 seconds?
>>2553903yes, as far as i understand he cuts an event from time, but everything else still happens
It's been a while, but how did they discover his powers in canon again?
>>2553933I think it was when narincia was eating chocolate and they got confused?
>>2553933I think they realized it when they saw time ship forward a few times.
ok i gotta go sleep, make me proud guys, i wanna see a clean win on this!!
>>2553954I mean Diavolo can technically get clean win by butchering all of us, heck that's probably in the table desu.
>>2553855>>2553856>>2553857"SILVER CHARIOT!""STAR PLATINUM: THE WORLD!"All colors faded to a darker shade as Jotaro freezes time, walking towards the still mob boss staring at him."Bastard... It takes some balls to appear out of nowhere and just kill one of our men like that, let me take a brief look at you before sending you straight to hell." Jotaro analyses Diavolo from head to toe, even seeing the sleeping miniature of a face stuck on King Crimson's angry forehead."Hm... I wasn't able to understand your ability correctly just from seeing it once, but I have no doubts about being able to end this battle before it starts.""ORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAAAA!" Jotaro makes sure to break every single of Diavolo's bones in the attack, turning his body into mush before resuming time."Time continues to flow.""Time has been erased!"As soon as Jotaro let go of his time stop, Diavolo managed to erase the actions of his enemy before his death could even happen."While I am not able to accurately see Epitaph, I naturally predicted your attacks when Polnareff summoned his stand. Now that King Crimson is active I will be able to see all of your actions-- WHAT?."Diavolo is confused to see everyone but Jotaro acting out as predicted, Polnareff was rushing down to attack the gang leader's previous position, Hitomi was rushing towards the car and Tempest was sobbing her eyes out, but Jotaro's frames suddenly disappeared from King Crimson's vision before idly standing by."Why can't I read that man? This does not make sense! King Crimson should be able to see all of the results!" Diavolo positions himself behind Jotaro. "I need to eliminate him as soon as possible. Time returns it's progression!""He disappeared again? How is he able to do that?" Jotaro thought to himself, not noticing the red maniac behind him."FINAL COUNTDOWN!" The clockwork stand suddenly marked Diavolo, who couldn't predict the results of the attack since they were too far into the future."Damn it all! What did you do to me?" Diavolo raged as the number 90 was automatically graved into his heart."N-Nothing..." Tempest lied through her teeth while keeping the number in Diavolo's heart stationary, hoping he wouldn't find out by himself."HYAAAAAH!" Polnareff once again tried to flank King Crimson with Silver Chariot, but Diavolo erased time once more to meet Hitomi down the cliff.(1/2)
>>2553974"Jotaro, did you see that? He just keeps disappearing!" Polnareff asked, dropping the camera to the ground.*BEEP*Polnareff accidentally turned his camera on as it fell on the ground, the timer going from 00:03 to 00:13 in a mere instant."Wait a minute... How did the camera just skip forward in time like that? I didn't press the forward button and it's brand new!""What does it matter?!" Tempest shouts at Polnareff for ignoring Billy's quick deathblow."The recorder skipped forward in time...?" Jotaro stared at the melting puddle his wife created, along with the camcorder's lack of a forward button."It happened again!" You see yourself crouching on the ground, with Billy's body bleeding out even faster than before. "How is Diavolo doing this?""The actions of your stands are not needed for Fate to advance, only the results have any lasting effect on the world." Diavolo places King Crimson's hands on your throat, halting your breathing."Whether you decide to heal him, attack or wait for your allies to save you, only the results will matter! ONLY THE RESULTS!" Diavolo aims two of his fingers into your eyes, planning to gouge them out.>Heal Billy.>Protect your eyes.>Try to absorb King Crimson.>Hope your friends arrive in time.
>>2554009>Try to absorb King Crimson.
>>2554009>>Heal Billy.We can absorb King Crimson later, Billy is on limited time.
>>2554009>Heal Billy.Punished Hitomi, a woman deprived of her vision.
>>2554009>>Protect your eyes.Honestly with Billy bleeding out this much, coupled with the fact we let our Hamon slip, may mean he might be beyond saving. On the other hand not protecting our eyes means WE'RE gonna be bleeding out in short order.
>>2554009>Heal Billy.absorbing king crimson comes AFTER we heal him
>>2554009>>Try to absorb King Crimson.
>>2554009>Protect your eyes.Gotta deal with the most obvious threat to our person first.
>>2554023Alright, I'll switch over to trying to absording king krison, cause we'll probably not have an chance like this later

>>2554009>Protect your eyes.>"Hitomi Furuya was a very pretty young lady. 'nothing can harm me if i take good care of my friends!' she always told herself.And sure enough, all of her enemies came tumbling down with ease as she conquered each and every one of her victories.One day however, the pretty lady looked around after receiving her biggest achievement in life to commemorate with her friends, only to realize none of her friends were actually there anymore.'Waaah! Waaah!' she cried to herself 'Where did they go? Werent they here just a minute ago? I want to show them my prize!'She looked as hard as she could to find her friends only to never see them again. she felt bummed about it for many years, but after that, the pretty lady unfortunately turned into a sad, bitter shell of her former self."I get the feeling that part of this shit is about to happen. And that scares me.
>>2554068Diavolo can't do damage in skipped time, i don't think. So if we keep him skipping time, we're actually pretty safe
>>2554076cmon dust, this aint fair T~Tbut I guess we knew that going into this.
>>2554076YOU GOTTA BE KIDDIN ME REEEE
>>2554076oh noes>>2554080we're going up against Diavolonothing short of 90s+ are guaranteed to be a pass.
>>2554090That pic is haunting meThose red dead eys!
>>2554090We just need to be stronger after this. As strong as we can get.Never again.
>>2554095Ultimate Hitomi route is go!
>>2554059>>2554060>>2554061You ignore the natural instincts to protect your eyes and place Karma Chameleon's on Billy's body, even if Diavolo manages to gouge your eyes out, at least you will still be alive by then, right?"A mere slave of Fate will never defeat an immortal emperor such as myself!" A single punch from King Crimson was more than enough to utterly break the lower row of Karma Chameleon's arms, severing them out of the dancer's body."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!" Your screams of agony were heard by Jotaro, Polnareff and Tempest, who promptly rushed to see your humiliating torture by the hands of Diavolo."You are too weak to overcome Fate, As long as you haven't evolved enough to overcome reality itself, you will forever be blinded by your results!" The Crimson Emperor stated before squashing both your eyes with a single chop to the head, making your shrieks of pain echo throughout the entire beach."HITOMI!" Jotaro leaped with his guarded stand on top of Diavolo, trying to give him a body slam as his anger ignored any sort of logic.However, the blind attack turned out to be completely ineffective when a single punch from Diavolo was enough to blow him back to the edge of the cliff, where Jotaro hanged onto dear life as he recovered from the attack."B-Billy-- J-Jotaro-- I am so sorry--" Is all you can say before dropping to the floor, fainting from the shock after Diavolo dropped you from your chokehold."Her injuries are not deep enough for her to die yet, however the shock will give me plenty of time to crush her neck!" King Crimson raised his foot to your unconscious body, ready to end your life."I can't take this anymore! DIE DIAVOLO!" Polnareff shoots his sword at the fiend, forcing him to erase time.Noticing the slight changes on the environment, Polnareff was able to perceive how Diavolo was able to teleport with ease while skipping ahead of time."He's not just erasing time... He is altering fate itself to his bidding!" Polnareff turned around him, predicting a blow from Diavolo, only for King Crimson to erase himself once more before landing a strike on Polnareff's left leg, completely tearing the ligaments and essentially destroying any use of Jean's member."My stamina is almost at it's limit..." Diavolo starts panting. "But one of you is already dead, the savior over there is down, Jotaro has fallen from the cliff, and the other woman is too scared to even move. Jean Pierre Polnareff, you are next!""Trying his damndest to pull the arrow from his pocket before the pain started to kick in, Polnareff flashed the beetle artifact in front of Diavolo, hoping to stall him while Tempest counted Diavolo's timer by looking at the camcorder."59...60...61..." Tempest prayed to all possible gods listening, hoping the loophole from Final Countdown would be successful in killing Diavolo for good regardless of his ability.>To be continued...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjcmlfP2PMM
>>2554200FUCK YOU DUST, DON'T STOP HERE.KEEP GOING.
>>2554200Hope fates on our side tomorrow... things aren't looking good.Just... 1 minute. We have to stall for 1 minute. That's all we need...
>>2554209Isn't it 30 seconds? 60 to 90?
>>2554214I just wrote wrong. Yeah.
>>2554200Huh, guess we’re blind until we find Josuke or Giorno then. Oh well. Better us then Jotaro or one of the others, I guess.
>>2554206No can do, gotta donate blood tomorrow and spend the rest of the day with my family for early Mother's Day gathering. Sunday will be when things get really heated.>>255421430 seconds, yeah. I have faith in Polnareff's stalling abilities, but most of the damage is already done.
>>2554235Can't we use our stands senses?
>>2554241If you or your stand loses a body part, the damage is shared between both. Rip Hitomi's eyes for a while at least.
Can't say I'm extremely worried really. I mean, even if Karma Chameleon alone can't fix it, which it might be able to do anyways, we could probably just find Giorno or Josuke and get them to do it for us. Plus we've got Hamon, so we're in more a Daredevil situation then anything.
>>2554262We can get fake, glass eyes, then assimilate someone else's eyes, and make the fake eyes take up real eye properties.Take Jolyne's eye properties if compatibility is a concern.
>"You are too weak to overcome Fate, As long as you haven't evolved enough to overcome reality itself, you will forever be blinded by your results!" The Crimson Emperor stated before squashing both your eyes with a single chop to the head, making your shrieks of pain echo throughout the entire beach.>Overcome Fate>Evolve to Overcome Reality>That's how it starts. The fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men... cruel.>A Path Lays Open For Hitomi>Let's see where it goes.
>>2554286We won't reject our humanity. We'll Transcend it. The next stage in human evolution, which can only be achieved by one with an ability such as ours!
>>2554308Only now that our eyes are gone do we truly see what needs to be done...
>>2554262I'd be more worried about the others dying than healing Hitomi since Diavolo can still 1shot either of the 3 remaining stand users before being taken out.>>2554286So between Heaven and Pillar Woman shenanigans, which ones are you more interested in? Just curious.
Well, that was a thread. Fuck man, these DC's.>>2554359Building the pillars to Heaven.
>>2554200>destroying any use of Jean's memberDid Polnareff lose his penis? to a leg punch?
>>2554359Pillar women of course. And then we can think of stealing heaven.
>>2554359>Heaven and Pillar Woman shenanigans, which ones are you more interested in? Just curious.Yes.As was explained in the Starcraft series, purity of form and purity of essence is required to achieve perfection.
>>2554375That is to say, both seem pretty fucking awesome.
>>2554359I'm not as interested in becoming a pillar woman as much as I am trying the trick with using karma's ability to combine two different types of things to become a perfect human. Cells that can perform every other function of every other cell in the body and whatnot.Don't get me wrong, pillar men are cool, I just think it could be more interesting to go our own route. Especially one that doesn't require the rejection of our humanity and becoming a dickhead like the undead typically are.
>>2554391Isn't the 'every cell can be every cell' thing also part of the Pillar Woman route? It's just a question of if we should ever take that final step.
>>2554403Nah, it's distinctly different.Pillar woman implies we've replaced our cells with that of a pillar man's. This would be remaining 100% human, just...you know. Improving what it IS to be human. Drastically. If Kars was a Perfect pillarman, this would be a Perfect human.
>>2554359The answer is yes. Having a cell that can emulate every other cell is a route to take, possibly through studying pillarmen cells, and once that is accomplished onto heaven so that mistakes can be rectified. All harm shall be based behind heavens gate, and the law of Karma will be fulfilled by taking us out of the cycle of suffering. Before, it was joke talk, but after this? No, we can't just leave the possibility aside. We NEED it.
>>2554391But pillarmens aren't undead. They were just too powerhungry. And Santana was a child rased by maniacs.
>>2554359I'd prefer heaven, and as much as I like the idea of Hitomi reaching Heaven or becoming a Pillar, shit gives me nightmares that she might become a villain in one of the future parts.
>>2554391Honestly Jojolion's Rock Humans sound very similar to that concept. That gives me plenty to work with but I'll think about how it will go down when we get around part 4
>>2554425Semantics. They have the same traits as Vampires, ramped up to 11. Even the same weakness to hamon and sunlight. Even if they aren't truly "undead", it's safe to consider them that.
>>2554468I don't really see a lot of similarities, but then again I'm only looking at the wiki. I haven't read jojolion.
>>2554372Like Promewthesus, we take from heavben and give to the people.And like Promethesus, our fate might be bittersweet...
>>2554468Well, I guess karma could be considered a walking wall eyes, with her combing power...
>>2554503That's basically what Thoth said.
>>2554409I like the sound of that. that's what my pick would be
>>2554409I dunno about that. He was (or still is) the Ultimate Lifeform. He was objectively superior to both human and Pillar Man at that point. The question here is whether humans can also become an Ultimate Life Form, or if there's some other completely different track that works for humans to achieve a similar or different type of power.
>>2554503And like him we will be chained to a Door rock for all eternity until someone save us.
So, like, I'm actually pretty optimistic about how this fight will go down, but... The stakes are TOO against Diavolo, ya hear? I think good old Duster will either pop out the arrow in Diavolo's favor, or a Passione member will ambush us.Just, let's be wary with future rolls, nothing too risky. Keep an eye on the arrow.
>>2555438>keep an eye on the arrowKind of hard to do, in our current state.
>>2555438>Keep an eye on the arrowbruh
>>2555438>The stakes are TOO against DiavoloHitomi is blinded, Jotaro is thrown of the clif. Until Final Countdown kicks in, we can lose Pol.
>>2555438>keep an eye on the arrowtoosoon.jpegBut really between Josuke, Giorno and Karma's increased precision allowing for something like >>2554308 I don't see the blindness being permanent. Hopefully she managed to heal Billy someone before she got taken out of the fight...>>2555462Ironically we're STILL doing better than the Part 5 crew here. At least only 1 person is maybe confirmed dead so far.
>>2555462to be fair, that's kinda better than expectedKing Crimson is ridiculously overpowered so we're lucky that we didn't critfail (yet)
>Hitomi will go through the worst fight of her life on Mother's Day.Would you guys be interested in spending some time with the Kujo family to make up for it? provided both Hitomi and Jotaro survive of course
>>2556841>spoilersThe implication you made makes me real uneasywe better roll like motherfuckersalso yeah, sure
>>2556841Pastebin needs updated with the new stand stats btw
>>2556909Right, I keep forgetting to update this thing, have a look:Stand Name: Karma ChameleonDestructive Power: B (Base)Speed: B (Losing her lower arms won't affect her speed)Range: C (5 Meters)Durability: C (Base)Precision: ADevelopment Potential: E Consider Karma Chameleon maxed out in terms of EXP after King Crimson
>>2556943will she ever get those arms back?
>>2556943HuhWeren't we at Development Potential B before? Did getting precision to A and knocking durability to C still cost that much?I don't really know how development potential works that well, though, admittedly. It might be referencing familiarity with the special ability more than stand stats.
>>2556954She probably will, I'd think. Stands seems to more or less recover from most damage after a while, provided the user isn't permanently damaged in the same way.
>>2556972yea,h i was thinking it would, but seeing as he noted it down, I was a bit worried. unless its only for this battle
>>2556967Both her and Jotaro have been practicing fairly regularly for 6 years, the E is to emphasize how she has already mastered Karma Chameleon in combat experience. Also don't take stand stats too seriously, Araki made that mostly to give their readers an idea of what a stand can or cannot do with no trouble so it's not really word of god.>>2556954Sorry anon, Hitomi's eyes can ceirtanly be fixed with Crazy Diamond or her own stand if she's skillful enough, but her arms aren't coming back.
>>2557021>arms aren't coming back.kiraquest absolutely seething
>>2557021but why...? I don't get why not? it made karma karma tho...
>>2557021>but her arms aren't coming back.Brutal. There goes our career.
>>2557021How far up are the arms broken at? the forearms? the upper arms?
>>2557038Aside from Diavolo being a heartless psycopath it's not impossible for stands to take permanent damage, Some iterations of Golden Wind's Silver Chariot are drawn with two pointy stubbles instead of having regular feet after meeting Diavolo, it's likely another case of the author being forgetful. Since Karma isn't able to absorb her default state as it just works as a reset button for her ability plus Hitomi being blacked out while her arms fell off mending just isn't exactly manageable.>>2557080Up to her elbows.
>>2557122Isn't that due to Polnareff's body having lost his legs? As is stands now, since Karma Chameleion's second pair of arms aren't tied to her physical arms, They should recover, shouldn't they?
>>2557122Why would crazy diamond be unable to fix it though?
Behold, part 4 Hitomi. She never asked for this.
y'all acting like her physical arms are goneno way, they're just broken, it's one set of karma's hands that fell off
>>2557140They shouldn't change how her real arms work, but she still feels pain when damage is inflicted on her extra arms. She will be perfectly functional after the fight but Karma will lose the Ashura aesthetic.>>2557192Hard to say since Crazy Diamond is really inconsistent so maybe, if not there's always Gold Experience
>>2557260I don't know, I've seen stands far more inconsistent. I guess it's just an Araki thing.Theoretically, he SHOULD be able to manage it since the power is just "reverting things to a previous state". Crazy Diamond is actually the best stand to use against Ultimate Hitomi for that reason.
>>2557260But a stand is the soul though and sort of a reflection of the body. If there is not permanent damage to the body, the stand should recover.
>>2557291You could interpret it as Diavolo's assault having a lasting effect on her soul.
>>2557345Ehhh, kind of shaky to meAs long as we didn't lose a bodypart that corresponds to something, I'd think it'd come back eventually, though certainly not quickly
>>2557345But permanent Damage? I can see the arms being useless for the fight, or taking a while to reform.Don't even have to reform perfectly. Can have scars to show they were broken, like having the marble held together with some other stuff like the Japanese gold pottery.
>>2557433Maybe some kind of lasting spiritual trauma? The kind that breaks a man or encourages one to aspire to heights never seen before.
>>2557447Again, not permanent when considering future workarounds. Since this is the last major battle before DiU she clearly won't be crippled for life.
>>2557747Yeah, but "non permenant because someone else at some point can fix it" and "not permanent because it heals given time" are 2 different things
>>2554278Avdols heart seems to be performing just fine after we copied over OUR heart (iirc) so there SHOULDN'T be.
>>2559652We can also try seenig with hamon like bats do with sound.
Thinking back to point about Karma losing her bottom arms, is there much precedent to permanent stand damage that doesn't affect the user? I mean, there are six Sex Pistols but they're numbered up to 7, but that could be a reflection of Mista fear of the number 4 affected how his stand manifested.Do we ever see RHCP again after his 'swim'? I mean, when Akira finally got on the boat Chili Pepper was a decayed Stand Skeleton at that point and he was fine, but i don't think we ever see Chili Pepper again to confirm whether or not that damage was permanent, of course, Chili Pepper can also regenerate upon contact with electricity, so that too is likely a moot point.
>>2554278>>2559652Honestly my big concern here is 'will we end up with two Human Eyes, In Our Eye Sockets, Unattached To Our Optic Nerves'
>>2559772And thats why we are a doctor. So we don't fuck up like this.
>thought of something meta and spooky>Because of our good action Avdol and Kakyoin survived>But in return we took a hit at out eyes like Kakyoin and only two arms are left from out stand like how Avdol died.>The world balances itself and all bad things meant to happen to them happened to us.>We did not stop fate, only delayed it and shifted the negative karma on to us.>Essentially like how our stand function, she absorbed those horrible events to herself and suffers as a result.
>>2559830ALSO BILLY GOT FUCKING DONUTED, LIKE KAKDUSTER YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD
>>2559830>>2559857>Anons have been noticing the hints throughout the story.The strongest power in Jojo isn't a stand, the ultimate life form or what have you, but destiny itself and it's gravitational pull towards life's creations.Also starting in 2 hours.
>>2559873fucking dreading today's sessionDust confirmed that Potato could die, if that happens then we're going down ultimate hitomi route for sure
>>2559882Even if he survievs we are still going for ultimate Hitomi first.
>>2559882As long as we're still a good parent in ultimate hitomi routeJust remember what we're all fighting for =VWait isn't it Mother's Day today?....oh fuck.
>>2559882In b4 star platinum requiem, which would be fucking awesome when we finally need to put down gay priest.
>>2559804It's not a matter of fucking up, it's a matter of 'karma chameleon transmutes material, but if it's just a glass eye there's no material connection to transmute into optic nerves' On the other hand maybe the foundation can just raid their records of Nazi science (best in the world) for stroheim's cybernetic eyes because whoops that's canon
>>2559910Inb4 we forsake the Ultimate Lifeform route because we all want cyborg Hitomi.
>>2559891Well, it's good thing that we left Mr. K to protect her, right? Right?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F33N1T5FFxI
>Karma loses her armsHuh totally missed that in the chaos of Hitomi being blinded. I like the interpretation that they're missing because of the psychological scars that Diavolo inflicted (EVEN FOUR HANDS WEREN'T ENOUGH TO SAVE BILLY!) - might make for a great moment in part 5 if her facing her demons head on cause them to grow back or something.>Hitomi's eyesHonestly we can just chill until we meet Josuke...except that didn't Dust drop hints that the Crusaders staking killing off DIO earlier that scheduled would affect Crazy Diamond's powers? In that case its either fixing them herself or leaving it to Gold Experience (the irony that DIO made Hitomi what she is in the first place, and then its up to his son to restore her to that state).>>2559910If Karma can bullshit open heart surgery when then she can regrow eyes.
>>2559873Would losing the two lower Karma arms mean permanent injury to Hitomi livers or losing some ribs?
>>2559731There is the colony stands like Bad company and the fat kids bees, where they could lose some without dying. But I'm fairly certain after a bit the destroyed individuals come back as the wounds caused by their death heal
>>2559967Probably just some phantom pain or as other anons have suggested, psychological trauma.Or maybe Hitomi had two extra vestigial arms that she never knew about until they got smashed?
Ready or not, here I come.
>>2560034OPEN DA FUCKING DOOR KOICHI
"The stand arrow? So the woman I've sold them to wants to know more about me..." Diavolo gave a wrong guess as he composed himself, intrigued in finding some closure before murdering Polnareff. "How did you get involved with Enya?""Enya has been dead for over 5 years you retard!" Paying no mind to the nightmare of a situation he found himself in, Polnareff's brave soul encouraged him to talk to the ridiculously powerful foe as his equal. "I've been searching them for what seems like an eternity to me, Now that you've spilled just what I needed to hear, it's time to turn the tides on this madness of a fight!""Growing cocky, aren't we? And what exactly made you think that way? Could it be that the blood loss coupled with the death of your comrades were enough to drive you insane? Even with Epitaph being prohibited from utilizing it's precognition, you have no means of countering King Crimson." Diavolo doubted Polnareff's capabilities, seeing him helplessly struggle to face him with his mangled leg."That's where you're mistaken... You said you were running out of energy, correct?" Polnareff menacingly glared at Diavolo. "We might not be able to erase time like you, but if exhaustion is starting to weigh you down, that's where Silver Chariot can get it's upper hands on King Crimson! Even without my sword, the speed improvement I have from removing his armor plating gives me ample agility to hit you before you can even react! I will not falter, Diavolo! We will win!"Jean's bluffs were sufficient to distract Diavolo from ensuing his slaughter, yet it was clear to Tempest that Polnareff was lying through his teeth, the tenacity being but a mere farce to suspend Diavolo's mind off Hitomi and the missing Jotaro. He had no way of knowing who would be the victor until the last minute, he could only hope that his secondary plan would be clever enough to work."A long time ago, Prince told me that piercing your stand with the arrow head made a bright light emanate from your soul, if I can blind Diavolo with the flash, I will buy more time for Final Countdown. Please Chariot, I've trained you for all my life, don't let me down!" Polnareff thought to himself before acting on his instincts.>Attack King Crimson.>Attack Diavolo.>Stab yourself with the arrow.>Something else.
>>2560048>>Stab yourself with the arrow.Please don't be canon requiem, else this shit will even get even more fucked.
>>2560048>Stab yourself with the arrow.OWARI DA!
>>2560048>Stab yourself with the arrow.
>>2560058That's not even how requiem works. You have to stab your stand.and what you get is what you need at the moment. SC requiem was given its abilities to protect the requiem arrow.
>>2560048>>Attack King Crimson.
>>2560048>Stab yourself with the arrowAttacking KC is futile considering we need 85+ DC to even think about escaping afterwards, and Diavolo himself can see into the future.>>2560070Speaking of I swear:>Stab stand = Requiem>Stab yourself = Get funky new power upgradesGranted the only example of the second was Kira...
>>2560086yup, that's about right.

>Pol is about to beat the shit out of Diavolo, or is about to gain a power / ability / requiem that would counter Diavolo
>>2560124>>2560120pol is about to be so OP
>>2560104>>2560105fucking WEW this is gonna be a good one

>This entire fucking threadYup this is proper fucking jojo alright.
>>2560134Ignore me, just revelling in the fact that my shiity crit roll didn't get Pol killed. Thank FUCK our savior was on hand.Anyone who hates on best of 3 for making quests too easy clearly hasn't experienced a moment like this one
......... wait won't it be the most Polneraff thing to do if he passes the power up roll gain a hax power, but botch the combat one?
>>2560158He only has to keep Diavolo occupied for like, 25 more seconds.And requiem stands give you the power to achieve your goal.
>>2560158most likely yes, however at this point all we need is stalling so final countdown can put diavolo's ass in the ground.Pol doesn't need to actually fight worth a damn, just make everything drag ass and hold attention.
>>2560168i have never seen a more appropiate reaction picwell done
"Take this, Diavolo!" Silver Chariot appeared in front of his user, ready to defend his life at all costs.Polnareff's stand was able to dodge one of King Crimson's regular punch by strafing backwards, tripping straight into the arrow Polnareff was holding."This is the end Polnareff, try as you might, your soul has not evolved enough to face King Crimson." Diavolo begins to charge his time erasure ability while Polnareff panicked, terrified of his death. "DIE!""NO! I WON'T LET YOU ERASE TIME! I WON'T STAND FOR IT!" Polnareff's pleads were ignored as the vision within Epitaph started to form again, with reality itself being tinted red by King Crimson's point of view."At last, I'll be able to take the arrow from-- GAH!" King Crimson's ability is interrupted as a sound of shattering glass was heard from Silver Chariot, who was still transforming in the previously erased time. "WHAT? INPOSSIBLE! POLNAREFF WAS ABLE TO CANCEL BOTH EPITAPH AND KING CRIMSON'S POWERS? HOW?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFaOKapigA8The body of the previously silvery stand darkened into a blackish hue, his helmet along with parts of his armor being replaced by a large hat folded over it's top and several large rings serving as replacement for his shoulder pads."What...happened? Chariot?" The confused frenchman had no clue on what caused his sudden metamorphosis, what happened to Silver Chariot's sword? His amazing speed? His unmatched force?"TIME HAS BEEN ERASED--" Diavolo once again attempted to trigger his move, but the ear shattering sound was once again heard by the mob boss, signaling the cancelation of time's erasure. "NO! WHY CANT I ERASE TIME? KING CRIMSON IS NOT EVEN COMING OUT!""Silence." The black stand spoke up. "Your stand has been silenced as punishment for attacking Silver Chariot Requiem. Your ability to erase time will not harm any of these people anymore. Silence is what you deserve for inflicting suffering on both me and Jean Pierre Polnareff. The supreme defensive ability exists solely to automatically prevent misfortune, which trumps over King Crimson by a large margin.""Wh-what? I never said that! What are you talking about, Chariot?" Polnareff was flabbergasted by the power of his transformed guardian. "Are you saying you are able to cancel King Crimson?""Such is the fate of those who try to escape their fate. No matter how much you try to alter the events of this universe, Requiem will always negate your actions by returning you to null. Prohibition is what you receive for acting against this world's orders!""Null? Prohibition? Never! King Crimson's immortal reign will never cease!" Diavolo charges to the dark stand in front of him."Even if I don't deny you again, your time is already up.">Punish Diavolo.>Let him die by Final Countdown.
>>2560173>>Let him die by Final Countdown.Gotta be the bigger man here. Also he still has that pesky precog ability to do some last minute damage if we move in to attack.
>>2560173OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!>let him die by final countdown
>>2560173>SCR went full fucking GERholy shit.>Punish Diavolo.
>>2560173>Let him die by Final Countdown.That final line is what made my decision here. His time is up.
>>2560173>>2560177oh and also dodge him, i mean thats a given
>>2560173>>Let him die by Final Countdown.
>>2560173>Let him die by Final Countdown.
>>2560175Forgot to add that's it fitting for Tempest to deliver the final blow after he killed Billy.
>>2560186oh hell yes, i hope she gets even a tiny sliver of closure
>>2560186I mean, technically, he's not dead yet. We might have failed to heal him, but he's still bleeding out and on the edge of death. brain death only occurs later
>>2560179Hopefully it was timed right so he dies right after the final sentance.
>>2560173>Let him die by Final Countdown>Pol cucked Giorno out of the most hax power in the entire series>Pol butterflied part 5 top fucking kek
This is a glorious thread.
>>2560199>Cucks DIO>Cucks GioPol is the true Crusader here.
>>2560197True enough.Diavolo might have just seen Billy pass out and ASSUMED he died. It does take a bit after unconciousness to truly die, outside of direct brain damage.
>>2560199considering Pol didn't get Turtled, he can help with when we inevitably need to deal with gay priest.
>>2560205i am just reminded that Dust said his fav of the crusaders is pol, ... pure coincidence right?
>>2560205Wouldn't that mean Gio gets recruited with the rest of Dio's children by gay priest?
>>2560214Nah cause hes still got his whole thing of trying to be the top mob boss of italy, Giorno gives no fucks about Dio's shit.
>>2560173>>Let him die by Final Countdown.That's it, I can die in peace. I'll never be able to top what I've done today.
>>2560218well we might need the help of your stand RIGHT ON TIME when we fight gay priest
>>2560214>>2559830>>2559873...since Pol hopefully killed a villain early, does that mean Hitomi has to take in that Karma and Fate and become a villain in a later part?
>>2560213I was ready to crush his face in if the 98 didn't show up before, favouritism does not cloud my judgement here.
>>2560214>Gio antagonist in Part 6>Teenaged Michael cucks himMake it so Dust. And yeah like >>2560217, Part 5 can still happen, Gio still wants to be a gangstar and the part 5 villian can be filled by an OC wanting to fill to power vaccum in Passione (by killing off the girl rumored to be the dead boss's daughter to remove any possible competitors?). Honestly we need to see if the part 5 plot armor is enough to keep Diavolo alive here.
>>2560229i know, i turst you enough to not let that cloud your judgementmore of a joke really
>>2560229And that is why we love you
>>2560217True. We kinda leave a power vaccuum that needs to be filled.La Squadron, Bruno's crew, and the drug guy from Purple Haze Feedback would all want to take the reigns of passione
>>2560241the leader of diavolos assasins, the one with metallica, he wouldnt be a bad stand in for a villain
>>2560243yeah, he leads la squadron. Risotto
>>2560241IF Diavolo dies here part 5 might be even more brutal for Gio and his group - not only do they have to deal with internal Passione threats but also stand users from other gangs trying to seriously muscle in on Passione's turf
>>2560250I approve of part five: Gangs of Old Rome. would be great shit.
>>2560249>>2560250and the whole gang war ensuing over the powervacuum due to diavolos death would mean we might have to clean up
>>2560250Part 5 is no longer "find the boss, kill the boss" It's "find the BOSSES, kill the bosses" It's going to be a full blown succession crisis.
>>2560255not our problem and the only ones in fighting shape of any form right now is Pol with his brokeass stand and final countdown, unlesss we drag Avdol and Kak to rome shits probably not happening while we get to licking our wounds and trying not to have worse shit happen to us in the future.
>>2560256It'll be a god damn RPG . Collect party members, kill the bosses.
>>2560259isnt there a 2 year gap inbetween this and the vento aureo arc in canon?
>>2560256>Pol accidentally a mafia shadow war
>>2560259It's not like we know that Passione is made up of oodles of stand users. Until we know it's a stand gang war, it's the police's problem to solve.
>>2560262yes but i kinda expect this shit to kick off almost right away since we accidentally'd a Diavolo earlier then he should have been.
>>2560175>>2560177>>2560178>>2560179>>2560184>>2560185>>2560193>>2560199>>2560227>>2560218"Tempest!" Polnareff picked up the hint from Silver Chariot Requiem, signaling Tempest to activate her stand."FINAL COUNTDOWN!" The dial on Diavolo's forehead went from 90 to 0 in instantaneously, an echoing sound of an alarm clock forcing his body to stop functioning, first his heart,followed then his lungs, then lastly by his brain.Unlike the rest of his victims, the criminal's death was silent, quick and painless. ending his life before he could process what hit him.>November 11th, 1994.>Stand Users: Diavolo and Billy Idol.>Stand Names: Rebel Yell and King Crimson.>Status: Utterly defeated, dead."I... Made it?" Polnareff witnessed his stand turning back to normal after dropping the arrow, still trying to understand what the hell occurred in the past 5 minutes.Diavolo's body was lying on the ground, the bloody snow covering his body.Tempest had a blank, thousand yard stare on her tear filled face, mourning the disfigured corpse of her husband.Next to him was Hitomi, bleeding from her eyes and mildly twitching.Jotaro was still nowhere to be found."AAAH!" Polnareff tried to stand up, but his bleeding mush of a left leg halted his movement. "Give me a hand here Chariot-- Requiem-- Whatever you are..."His default stand picked up the arrow one more time, placing Polnareff's arms around the stand's shoulder to help him limp to his destination.>Search for Jotaro.>Talk to Tempest.>Check on Hitomi.>See if Diavolo is really dead.>Make sure no one else is around.>Something else.
>>2560271>>See if Diavolo is really dead.Just stab his head a couple times.
>>2560271>>Check on Hitomi.
>>2560271>>See if Diavolo is really dead.i swear to fuck if he somehow survived i will be pissed.
>>2560271>look around for jotaro, go to hitomi
>>2560271>>See if Diavolo is really deadDOUBLE TAP
>>2560271>See if Diavolo is really dead.yeah, stab him in the head a couple of times, then>Search for Jotaro.
>>2560271>See if Diavolo is really dead
>>2560271>See if Diavolo is really dead.This guy is NOT getting a villianous second wind and killing us all while our guard is down.Also RIP Billy. Christ we didn't get to save him AND lost our eyes and arms in the process.
>>2560271>>Search for Jotaro.Call out for him.
>>2560283yes but arguably the most dangerous stand is dealt with and we made sure Gay priest can't fuck time through multiple universes. So at this point our biggest problem in the immediate future is inevitably dealing Kira's utter faggotry.
>>2560271tempest is gonna need counseling so fucking bad, poor girl
>>2560262>2 year gapMore like a 7 year gap, it's 1994 and VA takes place in 2001.
>>2560271>Search for Jotaro.HE'S LITERALLY HANGING OFF A CLIFF YOU MORONS
>>2560294shhh, no one knew i dont have the timeline in my head
>>2560271>>Search for Jotaro.
>>2560271>Search for Jotaro.
>>2560300i honestly forgot about that, but then again if diavolo suddenly gets up because he switched with his shitty second self at the very last second and proceeds to melt our ass everyone is fucked.
>>2560291If the arm lost is psychological, wouldn't that mean they can be therapised into being healed?
>>2560271>Search for Jotaro>See if Diavolo is really dead
>>2560310Oh shit. yeah. Doppio is a whole nother soul. If Final count down killed Diavolo, then Doppio would still remain.
>>2560271>See if Diavolo is really deadBecause I still dont' believe we've managed to overcome that part 5 plot armor. Also he's DEFEATED not outright dead.

>>2560343Go away Kira. This isn't your part.
>>2560331>>2560332>>2560333How very Polnareff of you.
>>2560348if we got a 1 Doppio would have ate final countdown instead and we would have a round 2 diavolo fight m8.
>>2560348FC stopped his heart, his lungs and his brain, i am not sure how he could get out of that
>>2560331I dunno, Jotaro is probably canny enough to realize that he can use his diamond-breaking punchghost to give him a hand it climbing to a safe place. Whether he was quick enough to clamber up in time witness everything that happened is another matter entirely.
>>2560348Diavolo is confirmed killDoppio however...
>>2560353Shit, that actually makes some sense.
>>2560354cause hes 2 people in one body literally, made the doppio half eat that instead like he did in part 5 and come back just really really fucking pissed off.
>>2560361>>2560358Oh no. He's gonna lose it.
>>2560358oh... so he's still alive....ughhh... is that good or-
>>2560366its bad m8, doppio pretty much was held together by split personality, and one of them dead means hes probably gonna lose it hard, that or diavolo might come back later because lol split personality shit again.
>>2560383They're different souls. I think Diavolo is dead dead. Doppio is super loyal to Diavolo, and might be mad.
>>2560383>Doppio still aroundWorst timeline: SCR effect ONLY works for Diavolo's King CrimsonThough at least we're SOMEWHAT prepared for this battle rather than being surprised attacked while checking on Jotaro / Hitomi
>>2560403Doppio only has Epitath though. Diavolo had to come out to use King Crimson.
>>2560403>His default stand picked up the arrow one more timeSilver Chariot went back to normal.
Typical, the moment the main threat goes down, Under Pressure fucks off wherever.
>>2560409Doppio was using Epitaph, which is part of king crimson. Diavolo was "loaning" Epitaph to Doppio, in Doppio's words. Doppio has no stand of his own.
>>2560415in b4 diavolo sent off KC to doppio in a your the boss now kind of deal.
>>2560415Not so sure about that. Why didn't Diavolo loan KC too then? Then he wouldn't have had to expose himself to Rissoto. Maybe he was just lying to him.
>>2560415>>2560409>EpitaphJOTARO GET UP HERE NOWALso reminder that no matter what goes down here were STILL fucking over the brando lineage. It's the little things.
>>2560415my theory is that Epitath is doppios stand, and king crimson is diavolosthey are one soul split in two, so their stands are still combineddiavolo is the dominant of the two personalities and has the most will and thus control over the "two" stands
>>2560421He kinda did loan doppio king crimson. Remember doppio used KCs arm once.I think doppio just doesnt know how to use KC.
>tfw a schizo twat did more damage to our group than DIO
>>2560438Said Schizo Twat did have the balls to take us on directly from the word go. Even a weakened vamp Dio would have stomped the early crusaders if he got to them at night - Hitomi didn't have Hamon, Jotaro didn't have time stop and Joseph's hamon was super weak.
>>2560438Diavolo's stand is also about ten times better then DIO's as well.
Man, DIOQUEST anons must be frothing with rage rn.>HA! WE FUCKING BLINDED THAT BITCH! KILL HER NOW!>Awww, little Polnareff trying to stop us.>Wait, wtf is he doing?! REEEEEEE THEY’RE METAGAMING REEEEEE!Polnareff rolls a 98 and gets SCR>REEE THAT’S BULLSHIT THAT FUCKING JOBBER DID NOT JUST ROLL A 98! Diavolo dies.>DIOQUEST explodes.
>>2560467Doppio lives>DIOQUEST explodes again
>>2560467>Doppio manages to kick serious ass>DIOquest renamed to DOPPIOQUEST
>>2560453If DIO acted more like Dio Brando, he might have taken out a crusader or two before biting it. If he'd set up an ambush for the gang after separating them via D'arby and coordinated with Vanilla Ice + zombies, it would have been a tall order for half the group to handle the zombified illusion stand user guy with his minions with Vanilla Ice ready to pounce with Cream. To say nothing if Dio had just attacked all at once with his personal guard.But Enya massaged Dio's ego to dangerous levels, which made him very cocky.

"POLNAREFF!" Jotaro's shout was heard by the edge of the cliff, coughing some blood before pulling his torso up to ground level."Jotaro! I got you man!" Polnareff skipped over to Jotaro's location, pulling him up by sitting down in the snow and using Silver Chariot."Thanks, is Hitomi-- What happened to your leg!?" Jotaro spotted Polnareff bleeding out on the terrain by Diavolo's cruel injury."King Crimson chopped it off, we need an ambulance fast!" Polnareff said, resting on the ground in order to not waste his energy. "The arrow evolved Chariot into a new form and said something about Fate while silencing Diavolo... I'm not really into philosophy so I didn't get what was at stake, I'll need to reanalyse my research when this is over...""Is Diavolo dead?""Final Countdown worked on him just fine, you should go over there and crush his heart or something just to be sure--""TURURURURURURU~" Diavolo's body suddenly shifted into younger, softer version of itself, changing his hairstyle and putting a sweatshirt on, he rustled inside his pocket for a detatched phone and started making ringing noises."Boss? What happened, are you there? Boss? Hello? Boss!" the confused man ''hangs up'', baffled by the line being cut. "Weird, the boss never hanged up without warning me first, did he change locations again? Oh well...""WHAT THE FUCK! I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD!" Polnareff screeched at Diavolo's double, who looked puzzled in the crippled man's direction."That's strange, the boss didn't dispatch me in a mission either. Who are you people?""I think I can explain what's happening." A hooded man approached the trio from the snow, inclined to clarify the matter at hand. "So you did defeat the Boss huh? It's hard to believe the fucker's actually gone... But I figured it should be benefitial for my group.""Who are you?" Star Platinum appeared to fight for the injured Jotaro."Relax, if I was sent here to kill you I would have done it already." The thug brushes off the intimidation tactic. "My name is Risotto Nero, I am the leader of La Squadra di Esecuzione, an assassination team created by Diavolo at the beggining of the year to do his bidding. We are beyond underpaid and neglected by other members of the gang aside from not having any areas to work with. Diavolo sent us here to help him out on this fight, but it turns out he tried to bite off more than he could chew.""What do you mean the boss died? I was with him just a minute ago over by the phone! TURURURURURU" Diavolo's split personality said, still trying to contact himself.
>>2560508"I'll be honest with you: Now that Diavolo is gone, La Esquadra has the perfect opportunity to rise up, and I'm sure not letting that freak take care of the mob" Nero points to Diavolo's split personality."And what makes you think we'll just let that happen? You will still run a mafia that sells drugs to kids!" Polnareff replied."Your full name is Jean Pierre Polnareff, correct? You live in Egypt with your wife Malena Polnareff and your 5 year old son Michel." Risotto stared down at Polnareff, revealing personal information. "La Squadra was the one tracking you down, but I don't hold any grudges for any of you for killing the Boss, if anything I should be applauding you for doing the job for me. So how about making a truce, you let me and Doppio over there go, and I'll call an ambulance to treat your wounds? I'll stop messing with your private data so you're all able to go home. What do you say?"After you killed Billy!? Do you really think we'll just turn a blind eye to Passione?" Tempest hissed, ready to mark Risotto with Final Countdown."I am not asking you to forgive us, but Passione isn't a single person, there are several divisions of it spread throughout all of Italy, all with different goals and ideals. The only thing that kept it going was Diavolo's presence looming over us 24/7, with him gone I'll turn this into a respectful mafia gang. What do you say? It's a good price to pay for leaving this place with some dignity and I doubt two of you have too much time to wait for an ambulance.">Accept. We had enough trouble for today and just want to get back home>Refuse. Crime is still crime.>Ask him about the arrow.
>>2560489Thing is, the stand that killed them is one of the users they generated at the beginning of the quest as an ally.
>>2560519>What do you mean by respectful?If we like his nswer, maybe we could... I dunno, make some underworld connections with the speedwagon foundation? not sure if thats a great idea but...
>>2560519>Ask him about the arrow.I'd be willing to leave if we got to take the Passione arrow with us
>>2560519>>Ask him about the arrow.
>>2560519>>Accept. We had enough trouble for today and just want to get back homeYou know maybe we should help Hitomi out, she's bleeding there or something
>>2560519>Ask him about the arrow.>Accept. We had enough trouble for today and just want to get back homeLet's be real here, this guy is fresh as a daisy whereas the only one of us who's fighting fit is Pol AND Hitomi needs urgent medical attention.Ask about the arrow and scarper. We can team up with a future GANGSTAR to clean up Rome's street's after we take care of David Bowie.
>>2560519>>2560528This.Our whole mission was the arrow.Dealing with the Mafia is not part of our job
>>2560519>Accept. We had enough trouble for today and just want to get back homeAlso want the arrow
>>2560519>>Accept. We had enough trouble for today and just want to get back homeAs much as I want to go full whiteknight, pushing our luck is just bound to go wrong. Nope, nope, we are done here, is Giorno's problem now.
>>2560519>>Accept. We had enough trouble for today and just want to get back home
>>2560508So who else here thinks Doppio is cute as fuck?
Arrow and leave, writing.>>2560550No
>>2560556He is cute. Shame hes gonna die horribly.
>>2560550The cutest fuck
>>2560556Don't bully the doppio
>>2560563At least he's only gonna die ONCE rather than the endless death loop GER stuck him in.Trish is another cutie who's probably gonna die as well now.
>>2560571Canon doppio died in brunos body. So he was soared the infinite deaths
>>2560571Or she is gonna be used as a puppet by whoever wants to keep control over Passione.
>>2560527>>2560528>>2560529>>2560530>>2560536>>2560538>>2560542>>2560539>>2560544"What do you mean by being respectful?" Jotaro asks."Running things my way, of course. None of this petty drama between members the same mafia, Passione shall thrive with it's new commander and continue it's lawful reign over Italy. No goal about being immortal or increasing reputation, order comes first.""So you're still doing exactly what Diavolo did before, only better? I should be killing you right now..." Tempest sounds unconvinced."Listen Tempest, like it or not we only came here for the arrow, getting involved in gang fights is the last thing we should do right now, especially if he's giving us a chance to escape." Polnareff says. "I know you're angry about Billy as you have every right to be, but being agressive will only make more victims" Polnareff shows his leg and Jotaro finds his wife laying next to the car, to which he runs towards so he could see how hard did Diavolo hit her."Arrows? I heard Polpo is the one who uses it to recruit newcomers into Passione so it's going to be difficult to snatch it from him. But I'll contact you if I manage to convince him. No need to give me a number, I'll find a way." Risotto says, still waiting for an answer."Fine...This sounds pretty bad but we don't have what it takes to fight Passione as we are now. As much as I hate what you're all doing, I'm not in any shape to stop you, as long as you keep your word about the arrow, we'll accept your deal." Polnareff sighs."Smart man. Since you're out of any human contact for the next 2 miles, the ambulance should take around 20 minutes to arrive." Nero signals his orders on a walkie-talkie. "It's been a pleasure, Polnareff. Come on Doppio, I'll find a use for you somewhere in La Squadra.""What Squadra?" Doppio blindly follows Risotto, despite his past self being killed the childish man seems completely oblivious to that fact...."Mr. Kujo... I don't think I want to work for the Foundation anymore..." Tempest stops Jotaro from entering Hitomi's room to discuss an important topic."Hm?""Billy and I were always fighting and throwing insults at each other, but the truth is that I never got to say that I loved him as much as I wish I did, and now that the ambulance said that he didn't resist... I don't want to keep working with paranormal activities, It's just going to remind me of him again... I wasn't sure I would have the courage to leave my job like that, but after seeing Diavolo's double escape, something pushed me to give up. Can I please, PLEASE leave my job here?">Are you sure you won't reconsider? Your stand is a valuable asset to the Foundation.>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.
>>2560633well, now we know that stand users are drawn to one another, so it might be worth telling her that there's probably no longer an escape for her. But if she wants to leave that's fine. The foundation will still be there to support her. Maybe off her something in the foundation not dealing with the supernatural? like accounting work?
>>2560633>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.At least keep in contact with her, offer some therapy too if she wants it.
>>2560633>>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.
>>2560633>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.
>>2560633>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.>inb4 Pucci recruits her to create Heaven
>>2560633>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.Tell her that if she ever changes her mind or has need of the Foundation's services or a non-supernatural career in the Foundation, she shouldn't hesitate to ask.
>>2560633>>That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest.>This thread in a pic
>>2560638>>2560633Oh, might be worth telling her that this is not over between us and the gangs of italy. Even if she wants out, sooner or later, we'll be coming back here when we've go the strength to match and let billy rest in peace.
>>2560663We all knew we wouldn't leave Italy happy when we came here, it was just how bad it was gonna be.
>>2560674at least our daughter won't grow up an orphan.might have some issues with her mom tho, depending on how this trip, the battle, and Billy's Death, affects Hitomi.
>>2560639>>2560641>>2560644>>2560647>>2560650>>2560663>>2560680"That's understandable. It's been an honor working with you, Tempest. We have you covered if you feel like seeking a professional. Losing a person this close to you can't be easy." Jotaro shows her some compassion, relating with Tempest to an extent."I cannot thank you enough for this Mr. Kujo..." Tempest expresses her gratitude, despite still looking pretty depressed, "I am aware that stand users are attracted to each other, but Final Countdown should be able to take care of me if trouble comes my way. Farewell..."And with that, the worker dropped her Speedwagon Foundation cap on her seat, exiting the hospital without speaking a single word...."How bad is it Jotaro?" You meekly ask your husband about your injuries, afraid of knowing the answer."The doctors said both your zygomatic bones were fractured by the attack, damaging your eyeballs to the point where no amount of surgery could fix it. Your face should go back to normal in a few weeks but..." Jotaro tries to see the good part about his news, but stops his speech after realizing there is no good way of approaching this, your eyes are beyond medical repair."Do you think I can fix it with Karma Chameleon? I've fixed a lot of tissues on injured people's bodies back when I did battlefield medicine, I'm not sure I'm at the point of fixing something as complex as the human eye without seeing anything for reference, but I maybe..." You hopefully wish for an easy solution."Do it." You feel Jotaro's breath closer to yours, probably to give you a reference on where his eyes are."Jotaro, that's impossible, my stand doesn't even have her lower arms anymore--""We've both done several 'impossible' things in our lives, words like impossible or useless should have no meaning to us by now, if there's a chance to fix your eyes, We need to try our best to fix them. You can use my eyes as a base line if it helps." Jotaro encourages you to fix yourself, hoping to solve your problem and consequently relieve you of your angst."I'll try..." You respond, drained of confidence after all the pain you went through. Summoning Karma Chameleon and placing her two hands on both your eye sockets, you patiently wait for the dancer to finish her operation.>Roll a 1d100 to see if Hitomi can fix her eyes, results may vary from perfect eyesight to nothing at all.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>2560760Come on, we can do it.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>2560760UNDER PRESSURE

>>2560773>>2560775...I-I mean... i-if we're talking percents, 48% eyesight isn't t-too bad... i mean, t-thick ass glasses can be stylish...
I guess we can wait until we meet Josuke or Giorno...
>>2560766>>2560767>>2560769. . . this is how it starts.
>>2560766>>2560767>>2560769Oh boy, this is gonna be really sad
>>2560776We'll just need to use KC to see for us, I guess. Just memorize ocular tissue composition and arrangement and somehow connect those to the proper places in our brain and oh who am I kidding that's way too convoluted.Perhaps Hamon might be another thing to try here? If it can heal illnesses and set broken bones, it might be able to help heal further damage, though eye tissue isn't something that can regenerate like bones or skin.
>>2560795S-she'll just get Josuke to heal her!R-Right?!
>>2560789Fuck that, we had plans to do. 5 years without sight fucks us over ten times.
>>2560800At least she can spend some more time with Jolyne this way rather than jetting off straight to work again.
>>2560813need some pillarmen cells. can't regrow things from scratch, but can borrow some regenrative ability.then replace all the pillarman cells with normal human cells
W-we can still become Battomi and use hamon to hear, like some dude earlier suggested right?
>>2560825Using Hamon as a substitute for sensing people might be a thing. But the big part about major blindness is not being able to read things or focus on fine print. Of which Hamon doesn't seem particularly well-suited to.
>>2560795>We Failed To Protect This Smile.
>>2560830If Karma Cham absorbs someone's eyes, would it be able to see?
>>2560825Stand battles aside, doesn't being blind, kinda fuck us over our chosen profession as well?I don't want to be in hitomi's head space for the next few years....jesus fucking christ we lost so much in this fight.
>>2560843Still better loses than canon.
>>2560760>this fucking thread
>>2560851>Meanwhile in DIOQUEST
>>2560837It's not so much as KC being able to see as much as it is being able to have Hitomi see so KC can act accordingly.Though Araki can be inconsistent, remember that Polnareff can't direct his stand unless he can see the target directly. It probably works the same way here; we can probably get KC to copy someone's eyes and then somehow interface with Hitomi's brain in the right places, but we'd need someone to direct KC to the right places in the brain or ocular nerve to do so. Star Platinum is a good candidate, but does Jotaro know human anatomy well enough to help out with that? And if KC needs to revert for whatever reason, Hitomi will need to repeat the process all over again. It's theoretically sound, but potentially very unwieldy.
>>2560856He might know dolphin anatomy well enough. mammal eyes are pretty similiar over all. Plus star platinum is super precise, so that might be useful.
>>2560766>>2560767>>2560769Readjusting your cheekbones, you reconstruct the deflated eyeballs on your sockets, removing the scarring and making your face look exactly as it was before.Jotaro warmly smiled after seeing you could still heal your surface level injuries, but your next line would leave him devastated."Jotaro, why aren't my eyes opening?" You ask after cupping your face, feeling everything in order."...""Jotaro, I'm serious! I still can't see, are my eyes closed or what?""...""Answer me! This is important--""They're already open, Hitomi..."That exact quote was painful to hear. More painful than getting stabbed in the stomach by DIO, more painful than having an oil tanker dropped on your arms, and certainly more painful than whatever Diavolo inflicted upon you.Your stand has finally found it's limit, there really is something Karma Chameleon's absorption jewels can't restore. Luckily for you, your new tear ducts were durable enough to withstand you crying your eyes out for the next hour and a half.Really, how couldn't you cry after this fake hope your stand gave you? You'll never be able to see Jolyne growing into a mature, beautiful woman. You'll never see your husband drift to sleep again after a passionate night of lovemaking, your work with the Foundation will be severely brought down to a level where you can act without being limited by your lack of sight. This is too much!"Hitomi, I'm sorry." Jotaro lays down on your hospital bed, feeling terrible by proxy. "It was my fault, I was stupid to jump on King Crimson knowing he could erase time.""Don't say that Jotaro... Deep down, I know this was not your fault." Even after such losses, you didn't want to shift the blame onto Jotaro when he was also suffering to see you this way.>It was Diavolo's fault.>It was Polnareff's fault.>It was my fault.>It was Billy's fault.>It was nobody's fault.
>>2560872>>It was Diavolo's fault.
>>2560872>It was my fault.
>>2560872>>It was my fault.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cXjcKTRWcg
>>2560872>>It was nobody's fault.this shit happens and we need to learn to live with it for now.
>>2560872>>It was my fault
>>2560872>It was Diavolo's fault.Enough with this 'I should have been stronger' bullshit - there's no way she could have know how broken KC was
>>2560872>It was my fault.>please smile hitomi ;w;
>>2560872>It was Diavolo's fault.
>>2560872>>It was Diavolo's fault.Fuuuuuuuuuccccccck
>>2560872>>2560881>It was Diavolo's fault.Changing to this.
Josuke and his stupid hair can't come along soon enough. ;_;
Well, at least we can probably use Hamon to be functional. Become an actual blind kung fu master
>>2560872>It was Diavolo's fault.Hm, oh well, what’s done is done. Guess we’ll need to go and find Giorno then. Or level up Karma Chameleon’s powers. We know what the Requiem Arrow does now, so we could maybe use it. Or just train our Stand up normally.
>>2560909*Distant "WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY HAIR!?!"*
>>2560913We could just go requiem and see what happens.
>>2560890When you do a fault analysis, there’s no pointin assigning fault to a part of the system you can’t change afterward,it’s like stepping off a cliff and blaming gravity. Gravity isn’t going tochange next time. There’s no point in trying to allocate responsibility to people who aren’t going to alter their actions. Once you look at it from that perspective, you realize that allocating blame never helps anythingunless you blame yourself, because you’re the only one whose actions you can change by putting blame there. So yeah, it wasn't Diavolo's fault from Hitomi's perspective,
>>2560872>it was my fault
>>2560872>It was my fault.We let our hamon go, and we tried to protect others when we couldn't protect outselves.
>>2560875>>2560879>>2560881>>2560882>>2560885>>2560886>>2560887>>2560890>>2560893>>2560896>>2560898"It was Diavolo's fault, Jotaro. You know it." You temporarily quit your sobbing. "If you want to blame someone on our team, you could just blame me for trying to--""Stop, I know where you're going with this." Jotaro holds you still, laying his head on your shoulder. "Ever since day one you've had this attitude of bending over backwards for people because it was the right thing to do, and while I always respected your decisions, I was very vocal about the fact that you push yourself way too hard to help others, and the one time things don't work out you beat yourself over it for an unhealthy amount of time. Yet you're not seeing me putting the blame on you.""Jotaro...""Don't make this any more painful than it needs to be, Hitomi. Knowing your mindset of regretting past mistakes you'll be cursing yourself for weeks for not saving Billy, but you need to understand that some events are out of our control, we can't be at our 100% at every possible moment, nor can we save everyone we know from all of the trouble in the world. We've talked a while ago on how you're scared of letting people down, so I'll repeat this again: We-- I, love you. You don't need to prove your worth when we already know you're one of the strongest women alive. Both physically and mentally.""You feel a wet drop on your shoulder, although Jotaro's tone of voice was still firm and heavy. After dating him for 4 years and being married for 2, you have yet to see him cry once on his life.But your eyes are not working, so if you have no visual proof of Jotaro sobbing, then he did not do it...You stayed on the hospital for the rest of the week, emotionally recovering with your husband before saying goodbye to Polnareff and going back to Japan."Hey... I've heard about what happened back in Italy..." Kakyoin greeted you after your arrival."I've been trying to use Karma to help me out. It's not an alternate solution but I can still appear to be functional for anyone who hasn't heard the news." You use your stand to walk a few steps in front of you, scouting out the place before walking like any other person would."I see... Jolyne just woke up if you want to talk to her. She's missed you a lot." Kakyoin points to her bedroom.>Sit down with Jolyne and have a serious talk with her.>Just play around with her, she doesn't need to know yet.>Ask Kakyoin how did she behave.>Something else
>>2560995>Ask Kakyoin how did she behave>Sit down with Jolyne and have a serious talk with her.

>>2560995>Ask Kakyoin how did she behave.Joke around with him a bit too. If we hear her complaining about the state of the industry and creative bankruptcy and the woes of mass appeal, we'll know exactly who was responsible for that.>Sit down with Jolyne and have a serious talk with her.
We passed along the power of Under Pressure to Pol anons.
>>2560995>Just play around with her, she doesn't need to know yet.I don't really want to LIE but... honestly right now I'd prefer a "momma got hurt but that's not what matter right now, I just want to spend some time with you."
>>2560995I'll also support this: >>2561012Maybe ask around if they managed to recover any of the GREATEST MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY IN THE WORLD that might be able to help us out.
man is anyone else getting weird issues with 4chan's internal Page Update?
>>2561012>>2561025This too. If joseph has a functioning hand, and Stroheim had a mecha eye, maybe new eyes aren't impossible.

>>2561030>>2561046>>2561116>Stroheim never died, his death was faked by the SWF and he works under another alias as a technology consultant
>>2561012"How did she behave? Did she cause you too much trouble?" You asked Kakyoin."Ah, I can't say I was the most experienced babysitter, I'm sorry for asking you so many questions on the trip by the way. Aside from her crying when she remembered you and Jotaro weren't around, I think she liked having me around."Really?""Yeah, she only got to say my name after the first 2 days, but since her vocabulary can't be bigger than 200 words. I'm happy to see her learning my name so fast.""Right, here's the money for the keyboard." You handed him a 10.000 yen note."Come on, you didn't need to pay me for it! It happens, you know? I was too distracted watching TV to see where her juice box was." Kakyoin laughed at his own clumsiness."Thank you for the help Kakyoin. Hopefully your talks about video games didn't permanently put her to sleep." Jotaro waves goodbye before Kakyoin got on his motorcycle."Anytime. I'll see what the Foundation can do about the thing you mentioned when I get back home." Kakyoin refers to the research you started on cell regeneration, hoping they could find an alternative healing method for your eyes, along with several other medical benefits.Entering your house, you see Jolyne watching a brand new episode of Tama and Friends down by the couch, but the kid soon clasps her hands together after seeing you arrive."Mama! Mama is back!" You feel her snuggling your thigh when you sit down. "Where?""Mama had to take care of work again after a while sweetie, sorry to keep you waiting." You pick her up on your arms and snuggle her back. "What do you wanna do today?" "Hide-and-seek! Hide-and-seek!" Jolyne raised her arms up, gesturing what kind of game she would like to play.>Play with her.>Suggest another game.>Ask how her day was.

>>2561205>>2561208>>2561212"Eight...Nine...Ten! Here I come!" You uncover your eyes, pretending not to hear Jolyne's giggling somewhere in the living room. Granted, finding her now is going to be ten times harder than previously, but whatever. You can ignore that if it's for some lighthearted game with your kid."Hmmm, now where could that girl be? It's so hard to look for her in a place like this!" You use your acting skills to pretend your daughter is great at hiding, when in fact you are just using Karma Chameleon to walk around the room before you."Owie!" You felt your stand stepping on Jolyne's leg under the carpet, which made her start bawling from the scare while you were just playing a game."What happened?" Jotaro walks out of the kitchen, noodles in hand watching you rush to the carpet to stop Jolyne's tantrum."Waaah! Mama stepped on me! Why would Mama do that? Waaah!" Jolyne whines, oblivious to your lack of vision.Damn, it all came back to this again!"She keeps cheating too! She didn't say anything about a gray woman joining the game! It's just like Kakyoin playing tag!""Wh-What was that last part?" Jotaro asked, not expecting Jolyne to mention Karma. "Is she able to see your stand just like my mother?"You knew you would have to explain Jolyne about stands eventually, you just didn't think it would be this soon. Being the offspring of two stand users meant having one herself was inevitable, but could a kid her age actually be able to control a stand?>Those are ghosts!>That was my imaginary friend, Karma.>That was a Stand, Jolyne.

I don't like it!" Jolyne trash-talks your stand, feeling threatened by Karma's figure."She's just been helping me look around, sweetie. Mama can't see very well and just accidentally stepped on you..." You try to justify your actions to your daughter, but her last comment made you feel ashamed of your condition..."The gray woman is your mom Jolyne, but on another body." Jotaro tries to simplify the concept of a stand in a way a toddler like her could understand."Other Mama? So I have 2 Mamas and 2 Papas now?" Jolyne's head perks up after hearing her father's explanation, which sounded a lot more fun in her head. "Cool! Can we have 2 Jolynes too?""Maybe, I'm not sure..." You reply, not knowing how a stand is naturally supposed to come out of her body if Holly didn't manage to do so."How does Jolyne 2 look? Can Mama 2 talk to me? Does Mama 2 and Papa 2 have their own house? Where did they come from?" Jolyne starts bombarding the both of you with questions, probably the most annoying habit kids have at that age."Good grief... I am one time stop away from yanking a stand out of her... Go through on at a time." Star Platinum places two fingers on Jolyne's lips, shushing her before placing her back on the couch...."Now, any questions?" You ask after finishing the stand interview with reporter Jolyne Kujo."Can Jolyne apologize for being rude to Mama 2? If she is a part of Mama 1, that meant I called them both ugly! But both Mamas are pretty and I love them a lot!" Jolyne's innocent babbling warms your heart, even if she doesn't know why you "can't see very well"."We love you a lot too!" You, Karma, Jotaro and Star P gather up for a quadruple hug, glad to know the newest member in your family still loved and accepted you for what you were.Yeah, it might take you a few months to get used to your blindness, but even if the Speedwagon Foundation turns out to be unable to fix your eyes, the support from everyone else will be plentiful. Between helping you in tough times to cherishing your happiness on easier times, Jolyne was near essential for you to get back into your job at the beginning of 1995.>To Be Continued...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNvrhmSuiXQ
>>2561686Thanks for running, Dust!A heartwarming conclusion to a heart-rending episode.Even if we can’t become an Ultimate Life Form over Heaven, we can do our damndest to make sure that Jolyne doesn’t turn out to be a delinquent like canon Jolyne.
>>2561686We need to do everything in our power to get our eyesight back, so we can watch Jolyne grow up.And after that, we need to do everything we can to become stronger, so we can protect her.
>>2561686Thanks again for running, Dust! How did the remainder of Part 5 play out after we tactically fucked it?
>>2561753Part 5 starts in 2001. We'll have to see how it develops.>>2561686So about that "best technology in the world". Any solutions to our eye problem there?
>>2561686So what exactly did kakyoin and jolyne get up to while we were gone?He wasn't a meme-loving shitlord, was he?
>>2561753Risotto Nero is now the leader of Passione, the few members who disagreed with his guidance either left out of fear or gave up on the mafia after seeing Doppio being kept as the new boss's trophy prize. Europe's crime rate started to stagnate as a result of Nero not being as power hungry, segregating to ceirtan areas of Italy, France and Austria only. Despite all of that he still hasn't contacted Polnareff on the stand arrow, meaning they'll pay him a visit when they discover about Haruno Shiobana.>>2561852Nah, Kakyoin has a good filter despite being the most socially inept out of the OG team. It was mostly complaining over micromanaging Jolyne while his games were in development.>>2561794That's where the SWF tour will take place for, you'll get to read through their archives and what the company is able to produce in terms of helping out humanity and containing threatening data to spread to normal societies.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNQ-Qi7pBpwAnd that's the end of Part 3.5 folks, the next thread will be slightly before Diamond is Unbreakable starts, so be ready. I thought it would be pretty hard to write something interesting with lack of proper source material but I think it turned out pretty well. Any high points to comment on? Low points maybe? Are you in the hype for Morioh? What do you wanna do there? Feel free to answer since I won't be running next week, need to focus on college stuff or else finals will bite me in the ass. The week after that will be fine though.
>>2561946>What do you wanna do there?I've heard of a fabulous restaurant named Trattoria Trussardi that we just have to eat at.
>>2561946I just hope that there's still a nice, perfectly viable chance to execute the >>2554391 plan.But, as far as my part 4 hype goes, I'm looking forward to some fine dining, enjoyable walks in the historical alleys of morioh, and some family friendly fun.
>>2561946>What do you wanna do there?Pick up another daughter.
>>2562052We don't even need to see that one!
>>2562052>invisible baby>blind motherperfect match really.
>>2561973>>2561981I'm looking forward to making significant gains on the Ultimate over Heaven project while everyone takes a breather and lets their guard down.And for Hitomi to be a sincerely devoted wife and mother too. It's important to balance ambition with family life!
Well we got 50% of our plan done.We became a broken mess, somewhat good mother and started on a doctor path.
>>2561946Diavolo fight was definitely the high point of 3.5, specifically the way Pol stepped the fuck up, might be recency bias but that shit was awesome and probably one of the best moments in this quest.Kakyoin almost getting killed if that one dice was a second late was the most hilarious part, along with the sheer panic people had when they thought hitomi was being a bad parent.Low point is Hitomi's relatively meh performance against Diavolo, and schizo man basically destroying Hitomi's version of UNDER PRESSURE for this entire thread.Really hyped for Morioh, hopefully unlocking Josuke's Hamon Potential to make him even more broken, the opportunity to punch Rohan in the face just once for shit and giggles, and for us to get TPK'd by David Bowie after surviving fucking Diavolo.
well shit today suckedwill there be a session on monday, dust?
>>2562401No, I don't really do mondays since I'm busy for the day
>>2561946oh god part 4 is gonna be a massive fucking shitfest once jotaro realizes what the shit josuke's stand ability does.also kira is gonna still probably be bullshit, not sure how that fight is gonna go.
>>2562615Well, if we go Ultimate Hitomi rout, we can assume direct control by ejecting our brain and spine and planting ourself into Kira.
Can Hitomi see from her stand
>>2562690nope, hitomi is screwed at the moment
Gimmick to use against killer queen: turn karma chameleon into a very powerful explosive and tell him there's no way he also survives if we blow up
...Its sorta hitting me, that using Karma to move around in Morioh is pretty dangerous, we may want to actually get a cane...All it takes is one 'nice young man' to offer to help us across the street, and really whether we take the offer or not, we really have no control at that point, particularly if that nice young man has 'already touched us'.Also, a cane is not a half bad cqc weapon, sure its just a heavy stick to wave around, literally blindly, but its better than relying soully on karma
Really one bad roll and boom blind forever? I mean there is the chef which might help, but come on dust doesn't that seem a bit harsh?
>>2563244We've got Josuke in Part 4, Giornio in part 5 and possibly a SUPERIOR GERMAN SCIENCE cybernetic eye as possible fixes. We just failed on fixing the damage with Karma. >>2562615>Part 4 is gonna be a shitfestHow so? Josuke is nice enough to offer to fix our eyes himself if we befriend him - the only way to totally fuck it up is if both Hitomi and Jotaro super antagonise Josuke beforehand. And since Hitomi is blind she's unlikely to insult his hair.
>>2563246Well, Dust did say that Crazy Diamond because of actions taken earlier in the quest. Can Josuke heal our eyes, anyways? We know he has no trouble with wounds that were recently caused, but can he fix injuries that are years old?
>>2563261Crazy Diamond’s abilities might change*
>>2563244Sweet jesus there's no need to cry over this you guys. This makes the story more interesting if anything
>>2563244The permanent arm loss still rubs me the wrong way Personally.Dust can say that i't due to "trauma" but in the canon, people go through near death experiences all the time without their stand being affected.Also, the closest thing to "stand getting damaged without the user being physically injured is either Silver Chariot's armour or Born This Way, but for both of those, each new use of the stand refreshes it.So the broken arms staying broken seems out of place.
>>2563246>cybernetic eye as possible fixes.May fuck with our hamon. Also Ultimate lifeform can just regenerate her eyes.>Hitomi is blind she's unlikely to insult his hair.>Hitomy pat Youske on the head>Is it hair or is it steak?
>>2563271well that's your opinion man. though I hope you don't start shitting up threads because of this
>>2563284josuke is jotaros half brother so he is family, hitomi doesnt seem the type to say anything even remotly unfriendly when meeting family
>>2563289Josuke is Jotaro's Uncle, but yeah Hitomi is just too nice.
>>2563291ah, the jotaro family tree is to confusing, i just wanna see big men hit each other with spirits and weird powers
>>2563294Those Joestars are a damn menace! Everywhere they go, something happens. I say they need to be stopped, dammit!
>>2563294Blame Joseph for being a sexy beast and seducing a lady decades younger then him.
>>2563244I've stated before how this fight would be a lot less fair and more punishing in the previous threads when it ended up happening. King Crimson is a broken mess of a stand that required me to combine 2 requiem stands into one along with a Death Note knockoff to defeat him. Tbh I'm surprised this thread wasn't a complete mess.While I understand that you may be upset you'll have to admit that it could have been a lot worse. I don't think it bares repeating since other anons have mentioned too but none of these are permanent.>>2563271Several Stands have ignored previous concepts before for rule of cool, I don't see why something like that couldn't happen to signify a low point in Hitomi's life. >>2563172There are temporary workarounds for her blindness, she's already using Karma as something of a crutch and going full Toph Beifong with Hamon isn't that far fetched. Leaving Hitomi alone in Morioh will have a chance of her being harassed by Kira, but Bowie's too methodical to ruin his quiet life for any random woman he finds hanging around by herself. He'll know when and how to approach her if it happens.
>>2563405hah, Jameson and his stand NEWS OF THE WORLD
>>2563537I really think blind hitomi is a cool story twist. Along with lost arms and the feeling of failure it could be a strong motivator to achieve heaven/pillar womanImagine the scene when Ultimate Hitomi happens and she regains her sight again
>>2563537I really liked the blind twist.It gave a bittersweet fell to the sory in a way we hadnt experienced so far(except when Iggy died).So will the mob return the arrow anytime soon or will Polnaref and Avdol need to pay a visit to them?
>>2563629Chances are someone's going with Koichi to Italy
>>2563537Dust, if something, I felt that the fight with Diavolo was not punishing enough, hell, I am actually unhappy about having derailed Part 5 so badly, I was actually hoping that Diavolo would somehow make it out of the battle alive but without completely wiping us out.
>>2564556I feel like La Squadra is still going to be something that Giorno wants to clean up. Their main reason for rebelling against Diavolo was not being able to sell drugs, which was Giorno's original reason for wanting to take Diavolo down. He may even have a harder time gaining allies since Nero isn't a massively paranoid fuck like Diavolo and will have truly loyal allies.
>>2564556Really Silver Chariot Requiem was the turning point of the fight, Schizoid Man had already killed Billy, tortured Hitomi, knocked Jotaro out of the fight and chopped off Polnareff's leg.Despite not being afraid of punishing players myself the rolls and options chosen were never bad enough to the point where I would say "Yeah this guy's dead." This was as close to a party wipe so far in the game since failing the arrow test meant bye Polnareff and Tempest. Even now that you won Billy is gone, Tempest has retired, Polnareff lost his leg and Jotaro has to take care of his wife who's blind, weaker and likely depressed.>>2564833The "Giorno lied" thing might have already happened seeing how Haruno was 9 in 1994, so being a gangstar will still be part of his dream. I will admit I might need some time to think about how NuPassione will work after DiU ends.
>>2565450Jeez I keep dropping my name when switching computers...
>>2565450So, is anything different in Joyline? Or is fate just laughing at us for trying to change her different?
>>2566088She's still gonna be a thot....just a sexy cosplay thot thanks to all that exposure to cool uncle kak and his vidya games in her formative years.
>>2566088Too early to do much else than speculate, even in DiU Jolyne will still be just a kid. I have no doubts that she'll be better off than in the start of part 6 though
>>2566415Okay, that pic disturbs me somehow. My brain just sees Joyline clothes as if Jotaro skinned Iggy corpse and cut of his face.
>>2563244"One bad roll" underplays it. FIRST we made a deliberate decision to prioritize Billy over our eyes (it sucks that he still died anyway but King Crimson Broken As Fuck) and THEN we failed a roll. Frankly, permanent consequences to failing to roll to fix the consequences we voted to risk is totally fair, and indeed it's not inherently permanent.
>>2568425billy being dead is perma unless KC Requiem can bring back the dead or some shit.
So who is everyone's favorite villain?For me, it's got to be Funny. He gives really good speeches.
>>2568824Kars > Diavolo > Funny > Pucci > Dio > DIO
>>2568824Valentine > Kira > Dio > Pucci > Diavolo > DIO > Kars.
>>2568824Valentine > DIO > Kars > Dio > Kira > Diavolo > PucciPucci’s only really at the bottom because I barely got into Stone Ocean though, and have no clue what he’s like, and Diavolo’s low because King Crimson still confuses me even if I mostly understand it.
Oh yeah, how does everyone’s tier list of protagonist’s go? I think mine would be something likeJoseph > Johnny > Jolyne > Johnathan > Jotaro > Giorno > Josuke > Other Josuke
>>2569112Johnny > Josuke > Joseph > Jolyne > Jonathan > Jotaro > Giorno > Gappy.I was one of the people that disliked Jotaro for being the edgy autist he was but this quest mellowed me out from the hate, the only one Jojo I don't like now is Jo2ke because part 8 is an absolute snorefest
>>2569072>>2569103My brothers in arms.
Just realized that Blind Hitomi is a direct counter to heavens door.We are going to wreck Rohan
>>2569421Didn't Araki instantly scrap the whole "you have to look at my drawing" thing and just made him able to do it whenever he wants or am I remembering wrong
>>2569982yeah he got an upgrade because araki scraped the idea, just like josuke saving himself via time travel or some shit was also scrapped
>>2568476it's the eyes that's not inherently permanent mange
>>2569129Yeah, part 8’s been rather boring. To be fair, it’s not done quite yet, so it might get better, but as things are not!Josuke’s at the bottom of the list for me. Can’t say I’m a big fan of his supporting cast either. Yasuho or whatever her name is has one of the most I’ll defined Stands I’ve seen yet, and whathisname and his Stand Nut King Call just remind me of Okuyasu. At least the stone people are a fairly interesting idea.
Any threads this weekend, boss? Today even maybe
>>2573189Nah I gotta focus on passing the semester, taking a short break just for this week.
>>2580782Typical. I can't believe you like boipucci more than AMERICA.
