"The Fool" Iggy and "Geb" N'Doul, Part 2 (愚者(ザ・フール)」のイギーと「ゲブ神」のンドゥール その2 "Za Fūru" no Igī to "Gebushin" no Ndūru Sono Ni)[1] is the fifty-second episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime, the twenty-sixth episode of Stardust Crusaders, and the Second episode of Egypt Arc. It covers Chapter 186 through the most of Chapter 189 of the manga.

The battle against N'Doul continues. The heroes are stuck in the open while N'Doul is sitting kilometers away from them. Jotaro Kujo and Iggy begin an uneasy cooperation in order to reach the enemy without being detected.

Summary

TheFool GliderMode Anime.png

Upon realizing that N'Doul is using his sense of hearing to track the group with his StandGeb (named after the Egyptian god) Avdol attempts to set up a trap. He throws his bracelets on the sand, faking that he's slowly walking but N'Doul figures out the trick at the last second, avoiding an attack from Magician's Red and injuring Avdol.

Realizing Iggy can detect N'Doul's attack, Jotaro coerces him into becoming his personal alarm, but Iggy summons the The Fool and turns it into a glider. Jotaro hitches a ride against Iggy's wishes so they can head towards N'Doul to stop him from attacking. As they get closer but lose altitude, Jotaro must jump from the ground with Star Platinum. This tips N'Doul who frantically searches Jotaro's exact position and has the advantage of speed. Iggy eventually tries to put Jotaro on the ground to save himself but Jotaro manages to overcome this by using Star Platinum to grab Iggy and throw him in N'Doul's direction. This forces Iggy to protect himself with his Stand while it also manages to distract N'Doul long enough for Jotaro to get behind him and knock him out.

Although Jotaro's attack is not fatal, N'Doul commits suicide by driving Geb through his skull so he cannot be interrogated over DIO's plans. Before his death, N'Doul reveals that his Stand is Geb, after the Egyptian god, and he is only one of nine such Stand users, a fact that shocks Jotaro. After burying N'Doul and paying his respect to a worthy opponent, Jotaro confronts Iggy and is the victim of a prank when he realizes Iggy has soiled his hat.

Elsewhere, a travelling manga artist asks to see a local boy's comic book titled Oingo Boingo Brothers Adventure and discovers its odd contents, but is scared off by the boy's older brother. The brothers prepare to head off to Aswan to confront Jotaro and the others, but the younger brother reveals what the man had read and they decide to wait for the next bus, as it is soon revealed that the boy's comic book had predicted the artist's death.

Commentary

The direct sequel to Episode 25. The Egypt part possesses many episodes split into several parts, which had allowed us to adapt the plot up to the smallest details. It was a great opportunity.

The episode is impeccably articulated around Jotaro and N'Doul's duel. There's a great tension developing until the final clash, where the first one to shoot is the winner, like a good western movie. The suspense is at its peak!

As for the animation, we have added a fast photography effect on Jotaro's punches, which are too fast for the eye. It makes the action scene particularly classy, until the final act.

We can also talk about Iggy's faces, they are rather comical. He's attacked, is thrown around, and we even see him fart midair. I really liked the post-battle scene where we can feel the start of a friendship (?) between Iggy and Jotaro. Misato Fukuen marvelously dubs Iggy, to the point I really thought that the dog was talking (laughs).

If we look at it, N'Doul is maybe the only honorable enemy, having a noble character. We have lost a valorous antagonist and that is a shame.
