"Last Train Home" is an instrumental composition by the Pat Metheny Group from their 1987 album Still Life (Talking). It is used as the second ending theme for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, specifically the second half of the anime.

Pat Metheny Group's first greatest hits album titled Essential Collection Last Train Home was released in Japan on March 4, 2015, featuring artwork from the ending credits of the anime on the cover.[1] The Last Train Home collection contains selections from the band's albums released by Geffen Records and Warner Bros. Records, spanning from 1987 to 2002, except from the 1996 album Quartet.

Ending Animation

The ending opens with a slow fade-in from black, depicting the deserts of Egypt at night. As the screen scrolls horizontally, the skies over Egypt continuously transition from night to day. Several billboards, including one of Lucky Land Communications are shown, as well as street signs and small buildings are shown with each member of the Joestar Group in front of them.

The camera then pans out to reveal the Joestar group quietly enjoying a train ride, Jean Pierre Polnareff and Iggy look out of the window as Noriaki Kakyoin smiles at them. Muhammad Avdol is reading a book as Jotaro Kujo smiles at his sleeping grandfather, Joseph Joestar, who is holding onto three train tickets.

The scene then continues scrolling to reveal the characters amidst Egyptian ruins, with Avdol looking up to an obelisk illuminated by rapidly orbiting stars. Looking out across a small body of water connected by a bridge, Jotaro, Joseph, and Polnareff are shown smiling at Avdol, Kakyoin, and Iggy; who are gathered around a campfire on the other side.

With the sun shining brightly in the sky and a brief shot of the skyline of Cairo, the wind erases Jotaro's footsteps as he gazes out at the city before turning to walk away. The screen fades to a Polaroid photograph lying on a patch of dry, cracked earth. A gust of wind causes the photo to blow away as another fade occurs. This reveals the commemorative photograph to be the group photo the Crusaders took upon finally reaching Egypt.

Alternate Version

The endings for SC Episode 34 and SC Episode 45 play a portion of the song from 3:23 onwards. Only credits are present over a completely black screen.
