The Second Order from the Boss (ボスからの第二指令, Bosu kara no Dai Ni Shirei)[1] is the twelfth episode of Golden Wind and the one hundred twenty-fifth episode of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: The Animation. The episode covers from Chapter 478 to Chapter 481 of the original manga.

Giorno, Abbacchio and Fugo are sent to Pompeii to retrieve a key. On the way there, Fugo looks at a mirror and notices the assassin Illuso behind the group, but Fugo mysteriously remains the only one who can see him.


Fugo, Abbacchio, and Giorno arrive in Pompeii

Giorno, Fugo, and Abbacchio are on their way to the famous ruins of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was buried under scalding ejecta when the nearby Vesuvius erupted, preserving many details of a typical Roman settlement and making it a precious archaeological site. One of Giorno's remark upsets Fugo who almost snaps but Abbacchio intervenes to calm him. They then finally reach Pompeii. As the trio walks among the ruins toward the famous dog mosaic, Fugo sees a mirror and spots a new enemy barely hiding behind a column: Illuso, one of the assassins from La Squadra Esecuzioni.

Illuso's Stand emerges in the mirror

Fugo immediately warns his teammates but confusion ensues when Giorno and Abbacchio keep asking where the enemy is even though Illuso can be easily seen. Moreover, when Fugo turns to point at the enemy, he sees that no one is behind them. Confused, Fugo sees Illuso summoning his Stand and when Giorno says that he cannot see anyone even if the man is in front of him, Fugo understands that the mirror is linked to the enemy. Fugo pushes his partners out of the way as the enemy Stand attacks, but sees them disappear. Finding himself alone, he is attacked by Illuso and his Stand, Man in the Mirror. The assassin takes out his files and reads out loud Fugo's resume, revealing that he was a highly intelligent teenager whose temper ruined his career when he got thrown out of the university for beating a professor with an encyclopedia and he entered a gang instead. Pointing at Illuso to ask where his teammates are, Fugo notices his wristwatch on the wrong side; his entire surroundings have been reversed and he understands that he's been dragged into a mirror world. For their part, Giorno and Abbacchio do not know what happened to Fugo but Giorno remembers that Fugo was obsessed with the mirror and examines it. When Illuso demands that Fugo reveals Trish's location and the reason for their presence in Pompeii, Fugo refuses, confident of the enemy's impending death in front of his Stand. Yet, Fugo is unable to summon it.

Fugo reveals his Stand, Purple Haze, albeit outside the mirror world

In the real world, Abbacchio suddenly orders Giorno to stay clear. A new Stand has appeared but Abbacchio explains that it isn't an enemy: it is Purple Haze, Fugo's Stand, which is staying idle without its user. Meanwhile, inside the mirror, Fugo is helpless against Illuso, who smugly reveals that he can isolate people from their Stands in the mirror world and beats him bloody with Man in the Mirror.

Bucciarati invites Fugo to join him

Fugo's past is clarified. Born in a wealthy and prestigious Neapolitan family, he was heavily pressured by his parents into excellence to the point he had urges to kill them but controlled his impulses at this point. Entering a university at the age of thirteen, Fugo became the target of a seemingly pedophilic teacher and when he began to harass him, Fugo defended himself and beat up the teacher with an encyclopedia, finally letting out all the accumulated anger and frustration. However, his reputation was ruined and he was thrown out of the university. Thanks to his parents' money, Fugo was judged not guilty by a court but was disowned and lived in the streets from now on. One evening, Fugo met with Bruno Bucciarati who welcomed him at his side and accepted him despite his violent impulses.

Purple Haze's blind punch releases a deadly virus from the bulbs on its knuckles

In front of Purple Haze, Abbacchio becomes uncharacteristically nervous and as the Stand goes berserk and punches a nearby wall, Abbacchio flees without second thoughts. In the mirror world, it is revealed that Fugo punched the wall on purpose to propel the debris toward Illuso, but Man in the Mirror easily deflects them toward Fugo. Suddenly, Illuso sees a dead crow falling in front of him, followed by a whole murder of crows somehow rapidly decomposing into nothing. Abbacchio finally explains that Purple Haze's ability is to release a deadly flesh-eating virus from the bulbs on its fists, although the virus is destroyed by light, limiting its range. By punching the wall, one of the bulbs cracked, releasing the virus into the air. Although Abbacchio states that Purple Haze mostly embodies Fugo's violent side, the Stand demonstrates a small quirk of personality when it humorously tries to swipe its own drool off it.

Abbacchio argues with Giorno

Since it is separated from its user, Abbacchio is convinced that Purple Haze is now acting at random, but Giorno doubts it. Indeed, although Purple Haze appeared to punch the mirror by accident, it was ordered by Fugo in a futile attempt to escape the mirror world. Abbacchio decides to prioritize the key and leave Fugo to his fate, but a dispute ensues, Giorno wanting to defeat the enemy and help Fugo first. Angered, Abbacchio leaves Giorno and runs toward the dog mosaic. At the same time, Illuso is on the verge of finishing off Fugo.

Manga/Anime Differences

  • Fugo, Giorno, and Abbacchio are shown heading to Pompeii with Fugo driving.
    • Fugo explains the history of Pompeii instead of the narrative. He makes a wrong turn and is angered by Giorno for telling him too late.
    • Abbacchio has an inner monologue about how he has a bad feeling that Giorno will put them in danger.
  • As the three walk into the ruins, more scenery is shown than in the manga.
  • After Fugo first notices Illuso in the mirror, Abbacchio insisting they need to stay on track and find the key has been removed.
  • After Illuso comes out from behind the pillar, Fugo remarking that it's strange a mirror is there and wondering what Illuso's ability is has been moved to after he is pulled in to the mirror world.
  • When reading Fugo's background information, Illuso originally mentions that he is sixteen and born to a wealthy family in Naples as well.
  • The trash can originally says "spazzatura" but now reads "cestino della spazzatura."
  • The scene of Abbacchio calling out to Fugo is extended to include Giorno's thoughts at the very beginning of Chapter 480.
  • The scene of Abbacchio and Giorno encountering Purple Haze originally happens before Fugo attempts to summon it. 
  • After Man In The Mirror punches Fugo, Fugo has a line added that if Purple Haze is outside the mirror there must be some way to fight.
  • Fugo's backstory is expanded upon in the episode.
    • Fugo is shown doing homework as a child, with his parents ominously looming behind him.
    • Fugo, at one point in his childhood, attempts to stab his father in the back, only to force himself to stop and walk away.
    • The circumstances behind Fugo attacking his professor are shown. While attempting to check out books at his university's library, he is approached by one of his professors. With seemingly indecent intentions, the professor invites Fugo for dinner "again", causing Fugo to snap and beat him with a textbook.
    • Fugo is shown getting arrested, with students gossiping about his relationship with the professor as he is escorted away. He appears in court, and although his parents use their wealth to change the verdict and have him found innocent, Fugo is ultimately shunned by his mother and father upon his release.
    • After being kicked out of his home, Fugo begins living a life as a homeless person on the streets of Naples.
    • At some point, Fugo attempts to dine-and-dash a restaurant, where he is caught by one of the staff. Bucciarati offers to bring out the best in Fugo, including his violent side.
      • The restaurant Fugo encounters Bucciarati in is the same restaurant the team is seen hanging out in episode 5 when they are first introduced.
  • After Abbacchio grabs Giorno's arm to pull him away from Purple Haze, Giorno is shown pushing Abbacchio's arm away.
  • Just before Purple Haze starts punching, Abbacchio mentioning that Purple Haze's fists are like a representation of Fugo's violent side has been removed.
  • In Abbacchio's explanation of Purple Haze's ability, him saying that even light from a lamp can kill the virus has been removed.
  • After Illuso says no virus can enter the mirror world, Fugo has an added line hoping that Giorno and Abbacchio understand his message and don't get pulled into the mirror world.
  • A bit of dialogue in which Illuso tells Fugo that attacking the mirror from outside has no effect is changed so it happens before Giorno and Abbacchio's dispute. This leads to the final scene in which Illuso is about to finish off Fugo to have original dialogue of Fugo once again refusing to tell Illuso why they are in Pompeii and Illuso remarking that it doesn't matter if he doesn't talk because there are still two more people he can interrogate.

This episode had me on the edge of my seat! A half hour went by in a flash. Purple Haze was scary at first, but its drooling was cute. Those growls and gurgles are also voiced by Junya Enoki, although his voice is tweaked in post. He does a lot of shouting and screaming in the next episode, so that's something to look forward to!
Daiki Yamashita, Blu-Ray limited edition commentaries
I actually really love Fugo's character. Purple Haze is pretty demonic, but it's also pretty awesome. How the group handles a virus Stand is the big question for this episode and episode thirteen. And Junya Enoki stood brilliantly against the pressure of recording alongside the veteran Ken Narita, who voices Illuso.
—Daiki Shirakawa, Blu-Ray limited edition commentaries
1. Fugo's Childhood

Illuso simply reads Fugo's history out loud in the manga, but the anime makes sure to flesh it out visually. The staff spent time contacting Hirohiko Araki for details to create the scenes. Tsuda recalls, "This was where we spent the most time going back and forth with Araki Sensei. I hope it lived up to everyone's expectations!"

2. Purple Haze

Purple Haze is known for its aberrant, frenzied behavior and vicious abilities. Tsuda states, "I'd be happy if Purple Haze's sinister character got through to fans. But its impish side is creepy-cute, don't you think?"

3. The Abbacchio-Giorno-Fugo Trio

Episode twelve splits Bucciarati's team in two and features the newbie Giorno with Abbacchio, who still has reservations about him, and Fugo, who seems to be constantly annoyed at him. "Their ways of thinking will connect directly to what happens next in the story." "Tsuda points out, "so keep your eyes peeled!

4. Illuso from the Hitman Team

Illuso's Stand, Man in the Mirror, drags its opponents into its mirror world. Stardust Crusaders also featured a Stand that moves within reflections, but Man in the Mirror is much more direct. "It's really easy to mess things up when animating a flipped world, so there might be some mistakes if you look for them... On second thought, please don't look for them."
Naokatsu Tsuda, Blu-Ray limited edition commentaries
