Who Will Be the Judge!? (裁くのは誰だ!? Sabaku no wa Dare da!?)[1] is the second episode of Stardust Crusaders and the twenty-eighth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. It covers the second half of Chapter 117 through Chapter 119 of the manga.

DIO has returned from the depths of the ocean, having stolen Jonathan's body. Jotaro doesn't feel concerned by him yet but on the way to school, he encounters Noriaki Kakyoin, a Stand User sent to kill him.

Summary

On his way to school, Jotaro is suddenly attacked when a mysterious student in a green uniform swipes a paintbrush over a picture of Jotaro, causing his leg to be cut in the same location. Jotaro ends up falling down a large set of stairs, though he is able to lessen the fall by grabbing onto a nearby branch with his Stand. The new student comes to Jotaro's aid with a handkerchief and reveals his name to be Noriaki Kakyoin.

Noriaki Kakyoin reveals his Stand, Hierophant Green

Later, Jotaro visits the nurse's office to have his wound treated, but discovers the nurse had gone into a mad frenzy and stabbed one of the other students with a pen. On the handkerchief he had received earlier, Jotaro finds a message from Kakyoin stating that he will kill him, and moments later Kakyoin appears at the window. Kakyoin reveals that he had used his Stand, Hierophant Green, to possess the nurse's body from the inside and uses it to force her to stab Jotaro. Jotaro is able to drag Hierophant out of the Nurse's body via his Stand and once out, Kakyoin counterattacks with Emerald Splash; catching Jotaro off guard and sending him flying across the room. At that point, Jotaro declares that due to the invisible nature of Stands that he would be the one to judge Kakyoin and engages him. Jotaro is briefly trapped by Hierophant's tentacles, but is able to easily deflect the attack and follows through with pummeling Hierophant Green until Kakyoin is rendered unconscious. Jotaro decides to take Kakyoin with him back to Joseph in order to get some questions answered regarding the attack and DIO.

Back at the Kujo Estate, Joseph explains that Kakyoin's mind had been taken control by DIO and the culprit was a flesh bud attached to Kakyoin's brain.

Manga/Anime Differences

  • In the anime, there is an extra scene of Joseph Joestar and Muhammad Avdol having a tea ceremony.
  • A silhouette of Nukesaku can be seen along with Enya during her scene with DIO.
  • Original flashbacks of Jotaro are shown during his speech to Kakyoin.
  • Holy is originally shown doing chores while singing the 1962 pop song, The Loco-Motion by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. In the anime, this is replaced with her humming Aoi Sangoshou, a 1980 J-pop song by Seiko Matsuda.

Commentary

Once again, I am storyboarding this 2nd episode, which is the ground for many firsts, with Kakyoin's introduction and the first "ORA ORA". The two first episodes absolutely had to define the atmosphere of the Stand fights. The storyboard was consequently hard to make, but in the end, we still get a well-paced episode.

The three frames from Jotaro's flashback ("They've branded me a delinquent...") were Yasuko Kobayashi's idea, and we had integrated them without a hitch. We had also included several original shots, but the true priority was to animate the Emerald Splash. We had meticulously examined the manga to render it as closely as possible onscreen. I hope that the result was good enough. I think this attack is particularly cool; I must thank the special effects team for this success.

For Jotaro's "ORA ORA" scene, we begin with a slow-motion of the punch digging into Hierophant Green. This two-second long shot counts 450 frames, which makes the impact very striking and powerful. A great success from Fumiaki Kouta.

By the way, I also like the high-school students. The boys are excessively buff, and there's this girl whose hair looks like a bird's nest (laughs).
