The Nijimura Brothers, Part 3 (虹村兄弟 その3 Nijimura Kyōdai Sono 3)[1] is the fifth episode of Diamond is Unbreakable and the seventy-ninth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. It covers Chapter 281 through the beginning of Chapter 284 of the manga.

After defeating the Nijimura brothers, Josuke and Koichi have to find the Arrow to stop the spread of malevolent Stand Users. Moreover, it seems there is something else dwelling in the attic of the Nijimura's house.

Summary

The Nijimura brothers' father looks at a family photo

After Keicho is defeated, Koichi wants to destroy the Bow and Arrow so that no one else will be killed and he discovers a room with a monstrous creature in it - along with the Bow and Arrow. Keicho soon after enters the room and says that the creature is his father. Ten years ago, when the Nijimura family were in a bad economic condition following the missus' passing, Keicho's father sold his soul to DIO in exchange for money. But DIO didn't trust him and implanted his cells inside of him, making him turn into a beast upon his death. Keicho then explains he wants to find a Stand user able to grant his father death, as the monster he is now regenerates from any wounds. However, Josuke restores some pieces of paper into a photograph of the Nijimura family, proving that Keicho's father isn't completely lost; when Okuyasu, who has been listening to the conversation, attempts to persuade his brother to instead look for someone able to heal their father, Keicho still refuses to cooperate.

The Stand Red Hot Chili Pepper impales Keicho

Josuke spots someone on the roof through a window and a Stand comes out of the outlet, aiming to kill Keicho and take the Bow & Arrow. Keicho quickly knocks Okuyasu away and is impaled through the chest by the Stand, who introduces itself as Red Hot Chili Pepper. The Stand shocks Keicho and drags him inside the electrical outlet. Josuke goes to the roof in pursuit of the figure he saw earlier, only to see Keicho's charred black corpse on some telephone wires. Meanwhile, an anonymous caller calls Jotaro at his hotel, telling him that he is the one who stole the Bow and Arrow from Keicho and presses Jotaro to leave Morioh, but once Jotaro starts questioning him, the phone is electrocuted and the call ends. The next day, Okuyasu arrives at Josuke's house to join him in going to school and offers to hang out together.

Manga/Anime Differences

  • Nijimura father's transformation scene is extended.
  • Okuyasu meeting Josuke for school is added.
  • Here, Keicho's recollection begins 11 years before (1988) instead of the manga's 10 years (1989), which means the year before his dad's transformation instead of starting immediately there. Probably done for a clearer story telling, since the story is now told in chronological order instead of going 10 years back then a couple before then to go back to 10 years before.
    • In addition when showing the flashback of DIO, instead of DIO in his revealed form standing over Earth, only the obscured face of "Shadow DIO" is shown.
  • In the picture of the Nijimura family, the symbol on Okuyasu's bat is removed.
  • Keicho's death scene is slightly extended, with electrical interference effects added to his face.
    • His body is also altered, with his skin and clothing now electrically charred instead of rended and lightly smoked.

Commentary

This is the first episode featuring Red Hot Chili Pepper. Since there aren’t many action scenes, we made sure to up the quality of each one to make up for it.

At the end of the episode, Keicho’s corpse is discovered laying on top of the power lines. In fact, this is one of the only episodes in Part 4 where we can clearly see those utility poles, and the aforementioned power lines are actually close to the Sun Mart featured in the first episode. I bet you didn’t even notice that, though it would have been really impressive if you did. In principle, this is the sort of detail only the animation team would know (laughs).

We also depicted the Nijimura Family’s past, a family that was hit hard by the asset price bubble collapse of the late 1980's. Keicho and Okuyasu’s father is particularly adorable; he's just trying his best to recreate his family photo. You would think Keicho would have noticed this, but if you think about it, he's still young, isn't he? I wonder what he wanted to do after high school. It’s really interesting to me, I would have liked to know him better.
