"Sethan" Alessi, Part 2 (「セト神」のアレッシー その2 "Seto-shin" no Aresshī Sono Ni)[1] is the thirty-third episode of Stardust Crusaders, the ninth episode of the Egypt Arc, and the fifty-ninth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. It covers most of Chapter 207 through Chapter 209 of the manga.

The battle against Alessi continues. Still a boy, Polnareff is pursued and cornered inside of a house by Alessi and must figure out a way to hide.

Summary

Polnareff has been turned into a little child by Alessi because of Sethan's rejuvenating powers. The assassin has cornered him in a bathroom and swings his ax, but Silver Chariot blocks the blade, if only for a moment. Sethan overpowers Silver Chariot again and Alessi now attempts to drown Polnareff in the bath. At the last moment, Polnareff defecates and flings his poop at Alessi's face. In disgust, Alessi lets go to clean himself.

Alessi searches for Polnareff

Polnareff demands to know where the kind woman Malèna is, but Alessi then reveals that he's turned her into a fetus that she will die in a short amount of time because she is not connected to a womb. Horrified, Polnareff is again taken by surprise as Sethan touches him and turns him into an even younger child. Polnareff takes the fetus and attempts to escape with her, getting younger and younger until he's a three year old child. Driven into a bedroom with no exit, Polnareff hears with horror Alessi hack the door to enter. However, Polnareff then devises a plan.

When Alessi barges into the room, he guesses that Polnareff must have had hidden somewhere to ambush him. However, all three possible hiding spots are fakes. In truth, Polnareff has hidden in an aquarium, covering his head with a balloon and using a mirror to hide his body. The boy manages to get the drop on Alessi and pierces his nose and slices his face, forcing the assassin to run away. Blinded by his blood, Alessi falls down the window and fatefully lands in front of Jotaro.

Pretending to be a harmless civilian, Alessi uses the moment Polnareff calls him out and distracts Jotaro to strike. He deploys Sethan and touches Jotaro, turning him into a kid. Moreover, Jotaro has only acquired Star Platinum recently and is now Standless. However, even as a kid, Jotaro is still tough enough to smash Alessi's face and knock him out. When Alessi regains his consciousness, Jotaro and Polnareff have now been turned back into adults, the two then attack in unison and send Alessi flying.

Malèna wakes up from her sleep

Meanwhile, Malèna, who also reverted to adult form, wakes up naked with a towel. Wondering whether or not she was dreaming, she remembers the kid who saved her from a man. After finding an earring that she remembered belonged to the child, she tries to find him in the house, and eventually sets out.

Polnareff and Malena crosses paths for the last time

Malèna finds Polnareff outside, and realizes that he seems to resemble the child. However, Polnareff decides to keep his identity a secret from her before he and Jotaro reunite with the rest of the group. Watching them leave, Malèna decides that it was all a dream. Creating another spirit photo, Joseph determines the location of DIO's hideout: Cairo.

Manga/Anime Differences

  • Added a scene where the Crusaders have their lunch, and Joseph uses Hermit Purple to take a photo of DIO's mansion.
  • The anime adds a scene of kid Polnareff losing his earring.
  • The anime gives more details about the kid version of Jotaro.
  • The anime adds a scene where Silver Chariot and Star Platinum smile before punching Alessi.
  • In the anime after Star Platinum and Silver Chariot's dual barrage, Alessi is seen being launched skyward into oblivion.

Commentary

The second part of the fight against Alessi. Yasufumi Soejima is in charge of the storyboard which guarantees an episode of exceptional quality.

Alessi doesn't seem to think like a fighter, he's more the kind who rushes headfirst into the fray. At least he gives us some great funny faces. That said, his Stand itself has a particularly formidable ability. I think it compensates how ridiculous the User can be.

Even as a child, Polnareff manages to be featured with poop again in a scene. He's also walking around with his jewels out. He's really one filthy guy. (laughs).

Like in the manga, there's this homage to The Shining, a psychological horror style film. But with Alessi's personality, most of the scenes can also be viewed in a funny point of view. The balance between horror and comedy is truly astounding, and it reminded me how fascinating a medium JoJo can be.

At the end, we follow a painful separation between Malèna and Polnareff. The earring he's lost will suddenly come back in the next episode.
