Stone Ocean - Chapter 77
Birth of the "Green", Part 2 (『緑色』の誕生 その② "Midori-iro" no Tanjō Sono 2), originally The Sun's Direction (太陽の方向 Taiyō no Hōkō) in the WSJ release, is the seventy-seventh chapter of Stone Ocean and the six hundred seventy-first chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.
Jolyne, Anasui, and F.F. stare in awe at the inmates lying around them, who are all mutating into some form of plant. As Jolyne walks towards the strange vegetation, Anasui notices that flowers are growing out of her face. He goes to examine her, but the flowers have vanished. Anasui deduces that the bone is what is causing these mutations, rather than an enemy Stand.
Jolyne notices the bone, lying on a nearby root. She heads for it, but the bone starts rolling away. Jolyne's arm begins to sprout flowers all over. Anasui quickly inserts Diver Down into her, pushing the plants out of her system. However, he cannot remove the curse completely, as the plant has become one with her.
Jolyne warns him not to touch her, but he disregards the advice and licks a flower on her face. He understands that these are just plants, not having any human biology. He pulls Jolyne into the shade, where the bone's effects are lessened. Jolyne tries to locate where the bone went, but she finds what looks like a green baby with a star-shaped birthmark.
