Well, there's not much for me to say. Jojo is back, and its back...full, f**king force. There's no going back, it doesn't hold back, and its silly, brain dead fun ALL the way for the second season of "Stardust Crusaders". With a ridiculously long name like "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Egypt Arc"....I'll just call it "Egypt Arc". The first season of "Stardust Crusaders" was fun, but it can be quite inconsistent at times, with some rather slow moments. "Egypt Arc" is more of the same, but with less slower moments and more intense, brutal battles, the things that the "Jojo" franchise are known for. It even has some pretty interesting conflicts with even MORE interesting characters, something that "Stardust Crusaders" does quite well. Needless to say if you enjoyed ANY of the "Jojo" animes, this one is almost a must watch, since it pretty much follows up on "Stardust Crusaders". "Egypt Arc" is here to impress, and it sure does not disappoint.

Behold, Dio's elite stand users!

If you haven't had enough of manly Jojo openings, you go. "Jojo - Sono Chi No Kikoku ~End Of The World~" is by Tommy, Coda and Jin, the 3 singers of the 3 opening themes before this one, a collab for the final half of "Stardust Crusaders" is a great idea. Unfortunately, "End Of The World" is a rather slow song....I don't like it too much and I'll even say that its the weakest of the Jojo opening themes. The ending theme is "Last train Home" by Pat Metheny Group, and following the patterns of all the previous seasons, its no surprise that this one is another English song. It fits the mood and sounds quite funky, no complains here.

Rating: 8.0/10

What can I say? It's more Jojo, more importantly, its more of "Stardust Crusaders", an arc that showed to have massive potential towards the end of the first half. "Egypt Arc" picks off right after where the first season left off, and obviously things start off pretty quickly. Stand battle after stand battle, the pacing and flow of things are quite similar to that of the first season, except that here, the battles can be a little more drawn out (leading to more interesting situations), and the villains are a lot more interesting as characters. As the show approaches its climax the battles are longer and a lot more intense, making the final showdown with Dio an epic, amazing fight that no action loving fan will be disappointed with (the censors can be quite irritating though). Of course, the battles in "Egypt Arc" are every bit as fun to watch as they were in the first season, maybe even better this around, since its no longer just a test of skill and brute force against certain opponents. The story does advance, but not by a long shot, there was a lot more characterization in the first season, this season is more for showcasing the ridiculousness that this arc could achieve....which is a good thing.

Oh boy, here we go!

As mentioned earlier, "Egypt Arc" takes place right after the events of the first season of "Stardust Crusaders", after defeating the Priestess. Our heroes find themselves in Egypt, and they are bestowed upon a new ally by the Joestar corporation, a dog by the name of Iggy. Why a dog though? Iggy is a stand user....a stand using dog, a rather mischievous one at that. When the team is still debating about Iggy's addition to the team, they notice that the Joestar helicopter that delivered Iggy had crashed. After searching the helicopter to find its two pilots dead, they find out that they are attacked by the enemy stand. Right away. they are thrown into battle against a stand user that's probably more powerful than anyone that they have faced. The team realizes that their journey is far from over, as they will be challenged by Dio's elite stand users, who are a whole new level above the ones that they have faced so far.

"Egypt Arc" works as the conclusion to "Stardust Crusaders"'s been a fun ride. There's a ton of fun to be had in this sequel, and when you realize that its coming to an end, its kind of sad to say good bye to it, especially after investing 48 episodes worth of time into it. Let's just hope that they decide to do the 4th arc in the "Jojo" timeline...however, that would take some time.
