Jotaro Kujo, Part 2 (空条承太郎 その②, Kūjō Jōtarō Sono 2), originally The Magician of Fire (炎の魔術師, Honō no Majutsushi) in the WSJ and tankobon releases, is the second chapter of Stardust Crusaders and the one hundred fifteenth chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.


A trio of treasure hunters have found a steel chest in the ocean and hauled it back to the surface. Assuming it contains treasure, they attempt to pry it open but are confused when it appears to be locked from the inside. They also briefly notice that the side of the box has the name "DIO" inscribed on it. Days later, the ship is discovered in the middle of the ocean with no one aboard. None of the equipment or coffee had been touched, and all that was left was the steel chest, now open and empty with a blowtorch laying next to it.

In the present, Joseph Joestar arrives in Japan and is greeted by his daughter in the airport. Joseph brings along a mysterious partner as the three head to the jail where Jotaro is staying. The prison guards find Jotaro's prison cell filled with a considerable amount of other various objects, from books to jackets on coat hangers to even a guitar and a computer, which astonishes them and frightens the other detainees. Joseph appears and confronts him, ordering him to come out and go home. Jotaro tells him to get lost and and tears the little finger off of Joseph's prosthetic hand to prove the existence of his evil spirit. Joseph is left surprised, not having expected something to happen so suddenly without his notice. He makes the decision to have Jotaro learn what his evil spirit really is, and calls his partner up. Joseph presents Muhammad Avdol, an egyptian fortune-teller he met in Egypt 3 years prior.

Avdol announces that he will have to 'get rough' and summons his own evil spirit, a humanoid with a bird-like head and the ability to produce and control flames. Joseph states the spirit to be named Magician's Red. It launches a projectile of flames, pinning Jotaro against the back wall of the jail cell, causing him to exclaim at the intense heat burning his arms. Holy worries about what her father is doing to her son, while the guards are confused as to what's going on as they are unable to see neither the spirit nor its flames. Having no other choice, Jotaro's spirit finally fully manifests to confront its threat.

What do you think about Part 3's new protagonist, Jotaro? My plan's to make him the cool JoJo who wouldn't lose to Jonathan or Joseph. Other than that, we also have an enemy from 100 years ago, as well as an unprecedented, great adventure starting up! I really do appreciate everyone and your support.
