Rohan Kishibe ★ History
A detailed chronological summary of the life of Rohan Kishibe.
Rohan Kishibe was born in 1979. When he was young, he was often left at his babysitter's house, Reimi Sugimoto. During the night of August 13, 1983, his parents had an important thing to attend to and so Rohan was left with Reimi. He was saved by Reimi at the cost of her own life from the serial killer Yoshikage Kira, but was in shock and couldn't serve as a witness. Due to this traumatic experience, Rohan subconsciously suppressed his memories of the incident. Rohan would eventually decide to become a mangaka, publishing his first work at the age of 16. Three months before the events of Diamond is Unbreakable, Keicho Nijimura shoots Rohan with an Arrow, awakening a Stand ability in him.
Diamond is Unbreakable (1999)
By 1999, Rohan Kishibe is now a famous manga artist whose series, "Pink Dark Boy", is a success among children and adults alike. His series is also published in Taiwan and in several European countries, but not in English.
Meeting the Other Stand Users
One day, Koichi Hirose and Toshikazu Hazamada, both fans of his work, attempt to ring at his doorbell to meet him. Rohan mistakes the youngsters for pranksters at first, but the misunderstanding is cleared. Rohan is happy to meet his fans and invites the two boys inside with the intention of reading into their lives as inspiration. He brings the pair to his office and explains how he works to them. When he spots a spider, Rohan identifies it, guts it and licks its innards to gather the most information possible about the spider, which Koichi and Hazamada find offputting. When Hazamada vomits, Rohan tries to use this as an inspiration, but he stops when he notices Hazamada is exaggerating his vomiting on purpose.
Rohan leaves the room under the pretense of making tea for his guests. He purposefully lets the drafts of his next chapter in the open so that Koichi and Hazamada are tempted into looking at it. Soon enough, both are turned into books by the power of Heaven's Door. He returns and reads the bio of a horrified Koichi, learning about his experiences and the other Stand users in town. Fascinated by Koichi's colorful life and admiring Koichi's character, he decides to make the boy his muse. For his safety, he writes a command on Koichi forbidding him from doing Rohan any harm. Indeed, Echoes is forced to miss all its attacks. However, he is appalled by Hazamada's personality and refuses to use his life as material. When Koichi asks him why he's using such extreme methods to gather inspiration, Rohan angrily tells him that he's working to be read and that he's addicted to the rush of completing a chapter, meaning he will get his hands on material no matter what. Immediately after, Rohan rips several pages from Koichi. He then lets the boys leave with an autograph and a sketch, but secretly commands Koichi to come back. Moreover, Koichi still cannot harm Rohan and forgets about the incident every time he wants to call for help.
Battle Against the Joestar Group
During the night, his new material inspires him so much he's practically completed a chapter in a few hours. When Koichi comes back in the morning, Rohan finishes his chapter and rips another page from Koichi's bio. When Okuyasu Nijimura and Josuke Higashikata knock at his door, Koichi crawls to the door and opens it. However, Rohan's command still makes Koichi unable to tell his friends about Rohan and the mangaka patiently waits for Koichi to return to his office. When Koichi returns, he again regains his memories. However, Josuke and Okuyasu have guessed that something is wrong because of an injury on Koichi's hand. Okuyasu threatens Rohan, but he uses Okuyasu's bio to his advantage and psyches him out. When Okuyasu attacks, Rohan shows him his latest page and turns him into a book. Rohan now awaits Josuke (who was right outside the office) to act.
To force Josuke to stay, Rohan orders Okuyasu to burn himself if Josuke leaves, forcing Josuke to step into the office. Josuke opts to keep his eyes closed and run into the general direction of Rohan. Somewhat impressed, Rohan throws pen nibs at Josuke's face, who keeps his eyes closed despite the pain. Then, Rohan decides to taunt Josuke about his hairstyle, knowing that he'll lose control of himself. Josuke approaches Rohan and summons Crazy Diamond. Although Rohan is faster than Crazy Diamond and shows his art before Josuke's Stand can land a punch, Josuke proves to be immune to Rohan's art because he is literally blinded by rage. Crazy Diamond pummels Rohan into his bookshelves. Despite everything, Rohan hears Josuke's tragic backstory and is inspired into etching more manga. However, Josuke finds him and violently beats him up again. Rohan is sent to the hospital. Rohan's manga, Pink Dark Boy, is suspended for a month as a result of his defeat.
Reimi Sugimoto's Ghost and the Killer
Upon leaving the hospital, Kishibe finds a lot of respect for Koichi, in whom he confides, and at the same time holds an extremely deep hatred towards Josuke. One day, Rohan feels some nostalgia about his childhood. Convinced that an artist should be in touch with their childhood, Rohan decides to revisit the neighborhood he lived in when he was 4, although he was few memories of that place. On his way, Rohan meets Koichi again and pressures the boy into following him. The two spot an unmapped alley and decide to explore it. Soon enough, they realize that the alleys in there are abandoned and that the path loops on itself, despite the impossibility of it. Suddenly, a girl greets them. Rohan uses Heaven's Door on her, reading her bio in detail. He learns her name, Reimi Sugimoto, but when he gets too personal, Koichi tells him to knock it off. Rohan decides to erase Reimi's recent memories to have a proper introduction. Reimi presents herself and nicely tells the pair to follow her to the exit, pretending that they are simply lost. When Reimi tries to play at pocky horoscope with them, Rohan dismisses it. As payback, Reimi decides to tell the two the horrifying story of a girl that was murdered in one of the houses nearby. One night, a girl heard a disquieting dripping sound coming from her parents' room, but she took comfort in knowing that her dog was by her bed, as it licked her hands when she moved them down. When the dripping sound continued, the girl gathered the courage to check on it but saw with terror that her dog had been killed, its throat slit, and hanging from a coat rack. The killer revealed himself from under the bed and killed the girl. After Reimi finishes speaking, Rohan sees the dog from the story, Arnold, and realizes that he's been talking to the ghost of the murdered girl.
Rohan and Koichi try to flee but are still stuck in the alleys. Reimi eventually calms them and explains herself. She says that she's a revenant because she isn't at peace, knowing that her killer is still mudering people. Reimi begs Rohan and Koichi to bring the killer to justice, to which the two accept, although Rohan tells her he is more interested in the case as an inspiration. Reimi thus tells the pair how to exit the alley but warns them about spirits that will take them away if they turn back. As they approach the exit, Rohan and Koichi nervously keep walking as they hear and feel things behind them. When Koichi is tricked into turning back, Rohan quickly uses Heaven's Door to command Koichi to fly towards the exit. Reimi tells the pair that she will be waiting at that spot and salutes Rohan, whom she calls "Rohan-chan".
When Rohan investigates the cemetery to confirm Reimi's story, he meets a local monk who not only confirms her story, but also informs him that he was present at the time of the crime. Reimi was babysitting him and threw him from the window to keep him safe from the killer when he attacked her.
Pursuing the Killer
When Yoshikage Kira, Reimi's killer, kills Shigekiyo Yangu, the Stand users in town are alerted and gather at Reimi's place. They all agree to work together to find the killer.
Although Jotaro and Koichi acquire a solid lead thanks to a button Shigechi left the heroes, Kira unleashes an automatic sub-Stand on them. After a fight, Kira is seemingly cornered but he manages to flee. Worse, he uses Aya Tsuji to change his face with an anonymous salaryman. The heroes lose track of Yoshikage Kira, who has changed identity.
Battle Against Ken Oyanagi
The ghost of Yoshihiro Kira decides to create as many Stand users as possible in an effort to kill the heroes. One of them, Ken Oyanagi, is a boy who decides to defeat Rohan to make a name for himself. While Rohan takes photographies of every commuter in Morioh, Ken confronts him and asks him to play rock-paper-scissors. Rohan uses Heaven's Door to confirm he isn't an enemy and then ignores him as he believes Ken is an ordinary boy. However, when Rohan calls a taxi, Ken overtakes him into the car and forces a first round. Rohan wins with a "rock". At a café, Rohan sees Josuke, Okuyasu and Yukako sitting together; although they invite him, Rohan looks down on each of them and decides to sit alone. However, Ken steals his seat and makes a scene, forcing Rohan to play again. Rohan wins the second round with "paper". At a bookshop, Ken again takes a book Rohan was interested in. Angry, Rohan punches Ken in retaliation but loses the round because he technically played "rock" against Ken's "paper".
Ken's Stand, Boy II Man, steals a third of Heaven's Door. Rohan realizes the trouble he's in. Ken uses this opportunity to throw doubt in his mind whether he will use "paper" again. In the fourth round, Rohan is fooled into playing "rock" and loses. In the fifth round, Rohan's legs give in as he prepares to play "rock". Luckily, Ken changes his "paper" into a "rock", disturbed when Rohan drops to the ground. Ensues a stalemate. When Josuke and Joseph pass by with Shizuka in his hand, Ken tests his luck. He waves at the JoJo's waging that they will not come. As Josuke hates Rohan with a passion, the two do wave back but leave. Moreover, Ken breaks a window and stands in the middle of the falling shards, coming out unscathed. Ken's luck is at its apex. However, Rohan is determined to make his own luck. In another round, Rohan plays "paper" and Ken plays "scissors", but his the boy's fist closes inexplicably, making it a "rock". Rohan wins and regains his Stand. The mangaka reveals that he's used Shizuka to modify Ken's hand.
Furious, Ken takes Shizuka hostage and forces a new game. Determined, Rohan wins easily. To neutralize Ken, he decides to write a command preventing Ken from ever playing rock-paper-scissors. Desperate, the boy throws himself in front of a truck. Amused, Rohan also throws himself in front of the truck. Luckily, Yoshihiro's photo blocks the view of the driver, forcing him to swerve. Rohan and Ken survive. Ken recognizes his defeat and Rohan merely tells him not to use his Stand. However, they have lost Shizuka and must look for her even though she's invisible.
When Josuke finds a shapeshifting alien named Mikitaka Hazekura, he concocts a plan that will allow him to win big. Josuke rings at Rohan's doorstep and begs him to play Cee-lo with him. Despite his contempts, Rohan accepts. As a precaution, the mangaka refuses to play with the dice Josuke has brought and uses his own. Unbeknownst to him, Josuke has planned for this and planted Mikitaka beforehand in Rohan's drawer. During the first round, Josuke wins five times his wager with a triple 6. Then, Rohan has the worst possible result. Suspicious about the results and Josuke being visibly panicked, Rohan takes the dice, goes inside his home to take a magnifying glass, and calls Tamami Kobayashi. First, Rohan examines the dice but doesn't see the trick thanks to Josuke's lies. During the second round, while Rohan has a seemingly normal result, Josuke gets a triple 6 again.
Humiliated, Rohan cuts his finger with a pen and declares that he'll discover how Josuke is cheating by the next round. If he does, he'll take Josuke's pinky as punishment. With Tamami's help, Rohan forces Josuke to cheat again. Mikitaka's dizziness threatens to undo his disguise and Josuke is forced to throw the dice with Mikitaka on the verge of being discovered. However, a fire starts in Rohan's house and the mangaka is distracted. This allows Josuke to flee after he quickly heals Rohan's finger. Rohan's hate for Josuke increases.
Highway Star's Pursuit
Some time later, Rohan crosses path with Josuke again in the bus. Rohan's passive-aggressive behaviour makes Josuke uneasy. Inside of a tunnel, Rohan sees a room in the walls of the tunnel, where someone is cutting off a woman's hand. Rohan tries to warn Josuke but he isn't believed thus Rohan checks on the room alone. Driving his motorcycle in the tunnel, he soon finds the room but realizes that something is pursuing him. Rohan flees on his motorcycle and manages to keep the enemy away as long as he drives above 60kmph. Forced to slow down because of a passing truck, Rohan is caught by the Stand Highway Star. Highway Star proceeds to sap Rohan's lifeforce and takes him out. Josuke comes back and also sees the room, where Rohan is kept. Highway Star promises to let Rohan go if he lures Josuke inside, but Rohan refuses out of principle. The mangaka warns Josuke to stay away. When Josuke still steps inside the room, an angry Rohan calls him out on his stupidity. When Highway Star attacks, Rohan makes Josuke fly out of the tunnel and warns him about Highway Star's limitations. To shut him up, Highway Star takes the last of his strength.
After Josuke finds and defeats Yuya Fungami, Rohan is found and recovers although his opinion about Josuke doesn't improve.
Battle Against Cheap Trick
During his investigation, Rohan notices the strange behaviour of a boy named Hayato Kawajiri filming someone in one of his photos. Because his house has been burned down, Rohan makes an appointment with an architect named Masazo Kinoto to appraise the cost of repairs. When Kinoto appears, Rohan uses Heaven's Door to confirm Kinoto is not a Stand user and even writes a command on him. Sure of his safety, Rohan lets Kinoto free. Intrigued by Kinoto's obsessive fear of having his back exposed, Rohan traps the architect to take a look. At first disappointed by Kinoto's ordinary back, he sees the back open and Kinoto dying. Cheap Trick then appears on his back.
Rohan cannot use Heaven's Door without hurting himself and cannot run from the enemy Stand. As it tells him to burn the photos, Rohan decides to call Koichi as he trust him. However, Cheap Trick is invisible to Koichi and Kinoto's body has shrunk to the size of a toy. The boy thinks that Rohan is messing with him and thus leaves. Rohan examines the photos once again, but falls asleep from exhaustion. Cheap Trick almost kills him by ordering several deliveries. As they open the door to his living room, they bump into his chair and wake him up just in time.
Rohan is thus forced to go to Jotaro Kujo and must cross the city. Hiding his back with the trees and walls, Rohan is blocked by a passageway. He decides to walk backward, his back stuck to a passerby. Cheap Trick insults the man to make him turn, but Rohan uses Heaven's Door to force him to keep walking. In an alley, Rohan finds himself surrounded by dogs and cats. He tries to shoo the cats, but Cheap Trick explains that he's slandered Rohan in dog and cat language to turn them against the mangaka. Thankfully, Koichi reappears and Echoes ACT3 makes the animals flee. However, when Echoes uses his power on Rohan's back, Cheap Tricks holds and threatens to rip Rohan's back.
Rohan seemingly loses his mind out of desperation and shows his back to Koichi and Cheap Tricks turns around to possess Koichi. However, Rohan reveals that they are in Ghost Girl's Alley. The malicious spirits of the alley take Cheap Trick away and to seal its fate, Rohan commands the enemy Stand to go to hell. Out of the alley, Reimi looks at Rohan's scattered items and sees the photo of a certain Kosaku Kawajiri.
Another One Bites the Dust
During the final investigation of Yoshikage Kira's new identity, Rohan narrows it down to Kosaku Kawajiri after finding a suspicious photograph of Kosaku being tailed by his son, Hayato Kawajiri, holding a video recorder. Rohan manages to meet with Hayato and uses Heaven's Door to find out more about his father. As Rohan opens contents of Hayato's body book, he discovers a warning on Hayato's pages to not read further. Rohan eventually discovers that Kosaku is actually Yoshikage Kira in disguise. His excitement of this revelation is cut short when a miniature Killer Queen appears, revealing that Kira has unlocked a new Stand Ability, Bites the Dust. By discovering Kira's identity through Hayato, Bites the Dust marks Rohan. Wounded, Rohan feebly attempts to call out to Koichi and Jotaro who were just a few blocks away from him and is promptly killed by an explosion, which, coincidentally, reminded him of his first time with Josuke. Bites the Dust loops time back an hour and in the second version of the hour, Rohan is killed again as he was already marked by Bites the Dust in the previous time loop, despite not meeting Hayato in the current time loop. In the third and final time loop, Kira is forced to deactivate Bites the Dust in order to protect himself when Josuke discovers his identity, sparing Rohan just seconds before his fate.
Later, Rohan arrives with Jotaro and Koichi, as the gang manages to corner Kira. As Kira attempts to use Bites the Dust to escape, the group witnesses Kira's last moments as the serial killer is crushed by an ambulance.
The Golden Heart
Later, Rohan and his allies gather to see Reimi Sugimoto off as she ascends to Heaven. Rohan tries to hide his feelings but Koichi forces him to admit he liked her and will miss her. Reimi finally goes to heaven, her goal fulfilled.
With his investigation over, Rohan's hiatus ends and he starts working on his Pink Dark Boy manga again. He is later mentioned by Okuyasu, who states he heard a rumor about Rohan being caught shoplifting at Kameyu store.
Post-Diamond is Unbreakable
The Book: 4th Another Day (2000)
Rohan appears drugging 34 cats to find out the one who invaded his house earlier, but forgets about the cat after finding Trinita covered in blood. Searching for his master with Koichi they find the corpse of Hanae Orikasa. Rohan uses his stand on Trinita and discovers that the killer has red marks on his arms, and so tags along with Koichi to find him.
After-school Talk: At Café Deux Magots
At Café Deux Magots Rohan overhears everything that Josuke, Koichi, and Okuyasu were doing. In order to finally work on his manga in silence, he accepts to use Heaven's Door on the waitress. He learns her name is Rika Tachikawa, a 20 years old college student from downtown. Rohan reads on but doesn't find anything about Okuyasu, so he changes her back to normal and asks them not to bother him further. Rika awakens without remembering what just transpired and happily attends to Rohan, who asks for a coffee and gives her an autograph.
Vento Aureo (2001)
Rohan uses Heaven's Door on Koichi so that Koichi can understand Italian for his trip to Italy.
Stone Ocean (2012)
When Made in Heaven sped up time to the point where one work day lasted for less than 5 minutes, Rohan was mentioned as the only mangaka to continue to meet his weekly deadlines, easily publishing over 20 pages in less than an hours time without food or sleep. Rohan himself does not appear however, as it is mentioned over the radio.
In the light novel JORGE JOESTAR, an incarnation of Rohan lives in the 37th universe. Rohan has the same appearance, personality, and Stand as his original universe counterpart. He is friends with Koji Hirose, Muryotaisu Nijimura, and Fukashigi Nijimura, but considers them annoying because they always bring trouble with them every time they appear at his house.
Rohan had a manga called Pink Dark Boy in serialization for twenty years, and had recently started part eight of the series. In January 2012, Rohan purchased the Arrow Cross House after his previous house burned down. The original owners of Arrow Cross House couldn't be found, and the house had appeared on a hill out of nowhere, so it was going to be torn down before Rohan stepped in to buy it.
Rohan found a girl named Reimi Sugimoto there, who he decided to let stay as a guest after discovering that she has amnesia. He attempted to use Heaven's Door on her but couldn't find out anything about her past.
At some point, Rohan found Yoshikage Kira and was almost killed. Bites the Dust's effect was put on Rohan but Reimi's ability allowed her to keep Rohan in a suspended state between life and death beneath the Arrow Cross House, preventing other Stand users from being able to see him. As there was no oxygen in that area, he would not explode. Due to his state of being an "astral projection", Koji, Muryotaisu, and Fukashigi assumed that he was missing for two weeks in July.
On July 24, Rohan found Tsukumojuku Kato's corpse mounted to a stuffed polar bear in his study room. Despite being a light sleeper, the corpse and polar bear somehow appeared there without him noticing. On that night, Reimi and Rohan mixed up their bedrooms and slept in each other's rooms.
Detective Murder Case
Rohan meets Detective Jorge Joestar, who arrived at his house to investigate the case. He is frustrated that his house was already used for a murder like some cliché story. Rohan then lectures Jorge that he should only call him "Rohan" rather than "Kishibe-san" or "Kishibe-sensei". Jorge hesitates so Rohan uses Heaven's Door to prevent Jorge from calling him anything else besides Rohan.
Rohan describes the mystery of the Arrow Cross House. He also mentions how more than one detective was murdered in Morioh recently. The first was Sachiari Hakkyoku, whose body was found seated on a giant stuffed sea turtle, designed to resemble Urashima Taro. Nekoneko Nyan Nyan Nyan was next and was found near Angelo Rock, surrounded by stuffed dogs, cats, and pheasants. Her death resembled the Momotaro folk tale.
Rohan takes Jorge to the scene of the locked room murder. The police had taken away Tsukumojuku's body, but the bear was left behind as it was too large. Rohan shows Jorge copies of the crime scene photographs that he had the police leave behind, leading Jorge to wonder how Rohan was capable of having everyone listen to his orders as if he could bend the world to his will. The two wonder how someone managed to bring a giant polar bear into the room without Rohan noticing. Later, Rohan tells Jorge about Reimi. Rohan shows the exact locations of each murder case on Jorge's map, and Jorge realizes that the triangle of dead detectives matched the exact shape of the Bermuda Triangle.
As an experiment, Jorge borrows Rohan's hair clippers and cuts the fur of the stuffed polar bear. Rohan whines that he could never use those clippers again. After Jorge points out how Rohan could have theoretically not noticed the polar bear due to its white fur in the white room, Rohan reacts with a bizarre noise that causes Jorge to burst out laughing.
Rohan explains what Stands are and what his Stand could do, explaining that Morioh has several Stand users who are drawn to one another. Jorge tries to mention Kira's name, but suddenly forgets it. Rohan had used Heaven's Door to prevent Jorge from saying the name aloud or else Jorge would explode. Suddenly, the doorbell rings and Rohan asks Jorge if he can get his visitors to leave. He flees the room, asking Reimi to come with him. At the door, Jorge is greeted by Muryotaisu, Fukashigi, and Koji, who confront Jorge assuming he did something to Rohan. After Fukashigi mentions Kira's name, Reimi uses Arrow Cross House's ability to protect him from exploding like Rohan.
Jorge deduces that Reimi is actually a humanoid Stand who could control the Arrow Cross House and used her ability to hide Fukashigi. Rohan is intrigued to learn that she is actually a Stand and not a human. Accepting Jorge's request, Rohan uses Heaven's Door on Jorge so that he could see Stands. Jorge then asks Rohan to use Heaven's Door on Muryotaisu and Koji, allowing them to see "astral projections" like Rohan and Fukashigi. Jorge also realizes that each arrow on the house could rotate, explaining why Rohan did not notice anything happening after Tsukumojuku's murder.
Suddenly, Morioh has an earthquake and a chasm opens along its borders. Koji flies into the air with his Stand and reports that Morioh somehow detached off of Japan and became its own island, sailing on the sea. Just then, Rohan also reveals that he had read Jorge's pages from Heaven's Door. All of Jorge's adventures as a detective were listed under a heading titled "Forgery". Behind Jorge's left ear, Rohan found his true story. He was born in 1889 in the Canary Islands, became a pilot, fought in World War II, and then was murdered in 1920 by an air force general.
Separated from Japan, Morioh travels south at an insane speed of 100 knots (185 km/h). Rohan draws a map of Morioh for Jorge. They assume Morioh became an island from the powers of an individual and plan to head to Budogaoka Academy, because the school was located in the center of the dome. Reimi reveals that Kira had canceled the effect of Bites the Dust, so Fukashigi and Rohan were now safe and freed from Arrow Cross House's protection. Suspicious of the timing, Rohan wonders if Kira is the one who is moving Morioh.
A loudspeaker in the distance declares that Morioh will have an emergency meeting at the Budogaoka gymnasium and all citizens must attend. Rohan says his temporary goodbyes to Reimi as she could not come with them and the Nijimuras and Koji tease him for flirting with her. Jorge questions whether he should come with them because he isn't a Stand user, but everyone convinces him to because he's the detective and has to solve the case.
Muryotaisu summons his Stand Grand Blue, manifesting as three dolphins which carry the group and fly away toward the school like rockets. By the time they reached Jozenji, they found the temple had burned to the ground. The remains of the walls and floor were covered in drawings of moths and the citizens there had set themselves on fire. Jorge and Rohan realize that since this place had some sort of mass hysteria, it might also happen at Budogaoka gymnasium where all of Morioh's anxious citizens were gathered. They quickly head to the gym on Grand Blue, finding thousands of people pouring gasoline on each other when they arrive. They acted like zombies, constantly muttering "scared" in a trance. Rohan tried using Heaven's Door but everyone's books were filled with the word "scared" and there was no white space left for him to write any orders. Jorge realizes they could probably alter the conditions of the hysteria by destroying the locked room, so Koji uses Blue Thunder to destroy the gym's walls. As the locked room disappeared, everyone had come to their senses, wondering why they were covered in gasoline.
Rohan and Jorge wonder if there was anyone there who could be Kira. He would have to grab someone on the way to the beauty parlor but Kira was a careful man who couldn't rely on coincidences like that. Rohan states just standing around watching people won't get them anywhere so he heads to Koji.
Rohan flies back to Arrow Cross House with Koji's Blue Thunder, stating that he'll protect Reimi himself. Jorge follows him back to Arrow Cross House anyways. However, Reimi states that Cube House is the safest place for her to be as nothing would affect its walls. Jorge decides that they should all escape into Cube House, but Reimi is unsure whether its old power still exists since it transformed into Arrow Cross House. Jorge then demonstrates that Cube House simultaneously exists with Arrow Cross House, revealing the hidden door below Rohan's rug. Jorge reveals that someone might be hiding down there and asks Rohan for anything he could use as a weapon and escape gear. As Rohan gives Jorge a golf club, Reimi warns Jorge that it's a bad idea to go into Cube House as it's meant for a single occupant. If two people are running around in different rooms there then it could cause severe contradictions, leading to one person possibly being trapped in a parallel universe. Rohan worries about what may happen if they go in now, but Reimi assures him that since she is the owner of Cube House, she can decide where the floors, ceilings, and walls are. The three safely descend into the first room of Cube House and then Jorge goes further into the rooms below to investigate. Eventually, Jorge checks every room but they are all empty. Reimi then screams after checking the camera, as Tsukumojuku Kato is on the screen. Despite being dead, he walks up to the camera and laughs, saying that he guesses his life entirely belongs to Jorge Joestar, before he then vanishes.
Passione Murder Case
After Passione takes over Morioh, Team Bucciarati stays at Arrow Cross House. Kira (actually Kosaku Kawajiri) and Diavolo's bodies are mysteriously also found in Rohan's study with a time of death at 8 AM, despite Rohan and Jorge having been in the room at that time. They find the original universe George Joestar injured on the ground outside and bring him in so Giorno Giovanna could heal him. Rohan makes it so everyone in the house could speak English, Italian, and Japanese.
When George is conscious, Giorno introduces himself and explains what Stands are, revealing that Rohan also made it so George could see Stands. Rohan introduces himself by stating that the only reason he's helping is because he wants all of them to leave as soon as possible, angry that they got George's blood on his bed. Giorno and Rohan explain how they learned George's history by reading everything about him, and decided that he is the best man to solve the mystery of the two deaths. They also reveal to him that Tsukumojuku had died there and another Jorge Joestar was in charge of that case. George is informed of Jorge's adventures and what the current situation is like now in London.
Rohan's Heaven's Door had tried turning the two bodies into books, but the pages were filled with the word "death" in different languages. He then tried using Heaven's Door on the holographic recordings of Videodrome, but only their names and information about their Stands were written on the pages. After Rohan mentions how he had a clock in his study but someone had stolen it, Guido Mista replies that he should just buy another one. Rohan angrily rebukes Mista saying that he has affection for his own items, so Mista backs off. From that hint, George deduces that there must have been a reason for the clock being stolen, with "time" being the key word. He realizes that time must have been sped up, even though their bodies were moving normally.
George asks Rohan for a thermometer so that they could do autopsies. Leone Abbacchio and NYPD Blue are reluctant to take rectal temperatures until George convinces them to by saying they shouldn't let an amateur handle it. Grossing Abbacchio out, Rohan describes how he used the thermometer on various wild animals such as birds, cats, and a boar, but he assures that the thermometer is well sterilized. The two officers take the temperatures and then examine the inside of Kira and Diavolo's mouths and eyes. Abbacchio asks if George figured anything out, but George ignores him. Abbacchio throws the thermometer at George, but the latter dodges and the thermometer shatters, angering Rohan.
Following George's request, all of the clocks in the house are brought to the study by Rohan, Muryotaisu, Fukashigi, and Koji. The Nijimura twins are creeped out at how all of Rohan's clocks are exactly in sync with even the second hands matching, but Rohan argues that he isn't as sloppy as them. George then asks Reimi about the Cube House. Rohan explains how Stands can unexpectedly evolve, so it's natural that Reimi doesn't have her old memories. Noting how Reimi looked depressed after what Rohan said, George asks the manga artist if he ever felt the fear of forgetting what he lived through. Rohan denies by saying he's thrown his whole life into drawing manga so there's nothing frightening about it to him. Koji and the Nijimura twins scold Rohan for his rudeness to Reimi, leading Rohan to finally realize his thoughtlessness. Rohan apologizes and says that he's not trying to be conceited but he just expects too much from people. The Nijimura twins and Koji laugh about his arrogance. George interrupts their banter and explains that he doesn't think Reimi evolved because a Stand forgetting their user would be a problem. Rather, he believes that something traumatic happened and Reimi was inflicted with a Wound.
George explains his final deductions to everyone. Meanwhile, NYPD Blue and Abbacchio notice that Diavolo's pages from Heaven's Door were not in order; his body only had odd pages, meaning that Diavolo had an alternate personality and someone else had the even pages. Rohan discloses that he used Heaven's Door on everybody except Giorno who could already speak Japanese and Italian, and Doppio, since he arrived late. They notice that Doppio is no longer with them so Muryotaisu summons Grand Blue to go find him. The dolphins quickly retrieve him from Cube House below the study, where he angrily points out that he was on the phone. Rohan was suspicious of Doppio from the beginning because of the crazy things he had been saying. However, Heaven's Door reveals that Doppio has both odd and even-numbered pages, so he is a normal person who is just a bit peculiar.
Enrico Pucci arrives and reveals himself as Diavolo and Kira's killers, but Giorno quickly defeats him with Gold Experience Requiem. With Giorno off guard, Rohan uses Heaven's Door on him. They verify that his body has the even-numbered pages. Giorno finally reveals his betrayal and appears in Diavolo's body after healing it. The gangsters and the Japanese group try protecting George but they are all easily defeated by Diavolo, who kidnaps George and jumps into Cube House. In the end, Rohan assists Bucciarati's gang with Jorge's requests.
