Anubis, Part 2 (「アヌビス神」その2 "Anubisu-shin" Sono Ni)[1] is the fifty-fifth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime, the twenty-ninth episode of Stardust Crusaders, and the Fifth episode of the Egypt Arc. It covers the last four pages of Chapter 195 through Chapter 198 of the manga.

Anubis has found a new wielder and attacks Polnareff and Jotaro. However, it is then that Anibus unveils its most fearsome ability, the power to improve in the middle of battle, leaving the duo with fewer and fewer options as the fight drags on.

Summary

Khan attacks Polnareff

Realizing the sword is the Stand Anubis itself, Polnareff tries to defend himself against Khan. However, Khan then easily counters Silver Chariot's strike, declaring having memorized all of its moves since the last fight. The one-sided battle culminates in Polnareff trying to use his secret technique but Anubis makes it so Khan sees it coming and deflects the blade. Thus, Jotaro intervenes with Star Platinum which punches Khan out of the shop. Blocking an overhead strike, Star Platinum snaps the blade in two and seemingly defeats the enemy Stand. However, just as Jotaro and Polnareff plan to throw the sword into the Nile, a police officer interferes, causing Polnareff to inadvertently draw the sword and become possessed by Anubis himself.

Possessed by Anubis, Polnareff challenges Jotaro

A battle between Jotaro and Polnareff ensues. If Star Platinum struggles to fight against Polnareff alone, it is then quickly overwhelmed when Polnareff lets Silver Chariot dual-wield its rapier and the cursed sword. Anubis manages to stab Jotaro's stomach with the sword and proceeds to push it in further, but Jotaro uses this opportunity to pin the sword in place while Star Platinum smashes it to pieces.

A woman in a red hood prepares her move

In yet another assassination attempt, the tip of the sword which Star Platinum snapped earlier manages to possess a young boy and attempts to throw himself at Polnareff. By chance, Iggy comes and makes the boy trip as he pounces on the boy's lollipop. Unbalanced, the boy throws the blade into the Nile where it is condemned to spend the rest of its existence.

The narration briefly presents the diversity of people inhabiting Egypt. Elsewhere, a woman in a red hood makes her move.

Manga/Anime Differences

  • Like the previous episode, some scenes featuring Iggy were added.
  • The fight between Jotaro and Anubis Polnareff is slightly expanded upon with scenes that include, but are not limited to, Star Platinum using Star Finger and Silver Chariot using its Armor Takeoff ability.
  • The introduction of the Egyptian people was added to this episode when chronologically in the manga it should have been in the previous one.
  • A scene featuring Mariah walking and commented by two Egyptian people was added.

Commentary

With Toshiyuki Kato at the storyboard and direction, I knew that the episode was in good hands.

The most important part of the episode is of course the fight between Jotaro and Polnareff. I was reminded how formidable the latter could be if he became an enemy.

In the duel scene, the climax is evidently Jotaro being stabbed in the gut by the blade, then breaking it bit by bit at high speed. It's an emblematic passage for me, and it looks rather nice on screen. Also, there's Anubis trying to call to the crabs and fish at the very end. Yasunori Matsumoto's frenzied performance is truly formidable.

The end of the episode is similar to that of Episode 26 as it also makes a transition with the next antagonist by presenting Mariah this time. We've also put here the manga's explanation about the different ethnic groups in Egypt, in particular the "Indian guy who had really nothing to do here". (laughs). I am sure no one in the audience had guessed that we'd go find this kind of seemingly useless scene. It would be forgetting that these details make Jojo's charm.
