Soft & Wet, Part 5 (ソフト&ウェット その⑤ Sofuto Ando Wetto Sono 5), originally Yoshikage Kira (キラ・ヨシカゲ Kira Yoshikage) in the UJ release, is the sixth chapter of JoJolion and the eight hundred fifty-third chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.

Summary

As the assailant falls from the upper floor, the protagonist grabs him, and throws him inside the apartment. He then holds the attacker by the jacket, taking the antidote for the venomous snakes from the man's jacket pocket. The man is stunned as he doesn't recognize the protagonist, and claims that he isn't Yoshikage Kira. However, the protagonist isn't satisfied with his claims and continues to violently slam the man against the furniture.

The protagonist reassures by asking the kidnapped girl if the man was the one who kidnapped her, which she agrees to. The protagonist continues to kick the man until he clarifies the situation. He confirms his mistake by comparing the protagonist's hand with a model Kira made of his own hands. Claiming that Kira had them made to be exact replicas of his own hands. When compared, the protagonist's and Kira's hand shapes do not match.

The man then shows the protagonist and Yasuho a photo of the real Kira, saying that the protagonist doesn't look like him, while still acknowledging a certain familiarity. He explains that he isn't Kira, reveals himself as Ojiro Sasame, and proceeds to tell about his past.

Ojiro developed his ability during his childhood, because the house he grew up in sat on where the Wall Eyes would rise out of; that house was destroyed when the Wall Eyes rose. He simply realized he had this body-controlling ability as a kid. During the summer of 2008, he was surfing on a beach. He used his ability on a girl who took his invitation, to clip her to the bottom of the water. He didn't kill her, though he states that even if he did he would easily get away with it. It was at that time when he met Yoshikage Kira, who would drive him insane by continuously asking him if surfers are men of the land or of the sea.

This went on for a while, until one day Kira psychologically manipulated Ojiro into eating his own fingers to prove that he was a man. Ojiro held a grudge on Kira since then. He went on to explain that he rented an apartment room above Kira's and set up all sorts of traps in Kira's room, so that he could use Fun Fun Fun on Kira. He also kidnapped a girl and used her as bait; he also revealed that the photo album of the woman was set up by himself, and he made it look like Kira did it, so that he could frame Kira. He waited three days in his temporary room for Kira to return so that Ojiro could ambush him.

The protagonist realizes that the woman from the bathroom suddenly went missing. He asks Yasuho where the woman has gone to, and Yasuho replies that the woman must have ran off while no one was looking. The protagonist decides to let the woman go, wondering if she was still naked. He concludes that even if the woman had seen Yoshikage Kira before, she wouldn't be able to distinguish the differences between Kira and himself.

Then Yasuho recognizes in the photo the spring where she found the protagonist. After knocking Ojiro out for good, the two go back to the spring.

Once arrived at the spring, the protagonist plunders all the water with his Soft & Wet's Stand ability and finds the corpse of a man. The corpse's autopsy reveals the corpse belonging to Yoshikage Kira, and it's assumed that he died of a heart attack three days earlier. What's more strange is that Kira's corpse was missing its testicles.

Afterwards, the protagonist is taken to live with the Higashikata Family, which included Joshu Higashikata. He now possesses the name Josuke Higashikata, due to the protagonist's resemblance to Yasuho's old dog of the same name.

Meanwhile, the woman from before hides in a trash can outside, finally free but still lacking clothes and lost. A couple of boys riding by accidentally bump into her can. She stands up, covering her body with the can, and stumbles around. The curious boys watch as she laments about going back to Tokyo until she trips and rolls over.
