JoJolion - Chapter 7
Josuke, Go to the Higashikata Family (定助 東方家へ行く Jōsuke Higashikata-ke e Iku), originally The People of the Higashikata Family (東方家の人々 Higashikata-ke no Hitobito) in the UJ release, is the seventh chapter of JoJolion and the eight hundred fifty-fourth chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.
Norisuke Higashikata IV happily chats with Josuke and Yasuho while he drives to the Higashikata family estate. Norisuke has Josuke go through a psychological test by choosing between a stuffed bear and a figurine; after Josuke chooses the bear, Norisuke says that Josuke is a "yanki", a person who likes fluffy things and not hardened objects. He also notes that Josuke has his feet bare to feel the fluffiness of the car floor; Norisuke also has his feet bare, revealing himself to be a yanki too. Hearing this, Yasuho decides to take off her own shoes. The whole time, Norisuke tried taking pictures, but grew increasingly frustrated with the camera.
Upon arriving at the house, Norisuke tells Josuke and Yasuho about his family business which is fruit trading, a business going back to his great grandfather, who won a second place prize at a horse race.
As Josuke and Yasuho enter the house, Joshu the second son, Hato the first daughter, Daiya the second daughter, Mitsuba the daughter in law, her son Tsurugi, and the maid Kei Nijimura are introduced and greet them.
Norisuke decides to take a commemorative photo, in which Josuke invites Yasuho and holds her hand. Jealous, Joshu comments that the eldest son Jobin isn't here, prompting Norisuke to cancel the photograph. Norisuke carries on by presenting the entire house to Josuke, leading to interactions with many of the Higashikata family members. However, ominously commands him not to enter the upper room of the estate and to obey his every order. As a new member of the family, Josuke is hired to take care of Daiya, who suffers from a visual impairment.
Yasuho is then seen off by the maid, who warns her not to approach the house again, or harm will befall her.
Meanwhile, after Josuke helps Daiya make tea, she tells him to "act natural" and not fuss over her as she knows every nook and cranny of the estate. Josuke cannot help but assist her anyway. Daiya's Stand appears suddenly and a piece of Daiya's leg is mauled, much to Josuke's confusion.
- Daiya Higashikata makes a reference to the actual band Yes, who performs the ending theme of the first season of the anime adaptation.
