From Japan to Italy, Koichi Hirose was tasked to search for an aspiring gangster named Giorno Giovanna to confirm his intentions and whether he is a Stand user. Why? He is the secret son of Dio Brando. This fifth arc occurs in the mafia world, with Giorno as one of the main characters.
Rejoice, JoJo fans, as we have now arrived in Italy and see all kinds of tourist sites and hope to god that we don’t get robbed. Instead of JoJo, the story will be focusing on Giorno instead. The art is filled with a high intensity, ready to battle with style. The character designs align with their personalities and Stands. The amount of background story content is decently solid to appreciate the characters even more than ever.
1. It Is More Than Just Plot
Giorno’s end goal can be considered simple, but the journey and the battles made the reading experience worthwhile. Stand users and himself made use of their abilities to the fullest while adapting to their environments. The characters’ background stories felt just right to shape their personalities along with their Stand’s powers.
Each Stand’s power was designed and conveyed in the story to make the battles draw your breath at certain moments. The practicality and creativity the characters showed felt well strategised and tactical.
2. Character Designs
It is difficult to ignore the fashion sense they have throughout the story. They carry a unique sense of self to represent the characters, and the poses they exhibit during battles and conversations are held like they made their arrival to the stage after making their catwalk.
If you have watched the anime adaptation of this series and expected missing content that wasn’t shown in the anime itself, we wouldn’t recommend reading this volume. However, if you want to purchase this manga and read it to support the original mangaka, Araki Hirohiko, we won’t stop you.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 5: Golden Wind is a whole different experience compared to the previous arcs where the story focuses on the secret son of Dio Brando in a mafia world. The character designs are remarkable and memorable as they provided a unique brand to the characters and their personalities are respectable. Their objective may be straight forward, but the journey to get to that point can’t be said as easy because you can expect many Stand Battles and character background stories to help us appreciate the characters a little more as we go. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much additional content that isn’t being shown in the anime adaptation, but if you want to purchase this volume as a means to support its creator, go ahead.
