Apologies for the delay on this, stuff came up.
Anyways, here we have the big exposition episode, with new villains, a plot reveal that really should have occured in an earlier ep because it would have made a wonderful villain speech (I’m still convined episode 27 was badly rushed), and some sections where the colours are about as true to life as most of the Jojo Part 4 anime.
Advance warning, this ep has some sections that are mildly disturbing.
TL notes below the cut
As mentioned in the notes for last episode, the new villains have their names translated as they’re full kanji compounds, as opposed to the katakana phonetic spellings of all the other villains. Same compound is used to describe the new Motws as well.
The bit of exposition talking about Mu, is referring to the lost continent of the same name, but other bits of dialogue imply there’s an Atlantis vibe as well, as Mu was a 19th Century idea, whereas Atlantis was a 4th Century BC idea. Lemuria is a related idea and yes, that’ll be relevant later.
