Anime Review: “Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe”

“Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe” is a four-episode anime series that deviates from the standard JoJo formula of action-packed battles through a linear storyline.

Instead, the series takes the route of an anthology, covering the general theme of the costs of desires and success and devoting episodes to different perspectives on the topic.

In an attempt to make the guy leave, she accidentally kills the man after pushing him, causing his head to hit a golf club.

As if this wasn’t already strange enough, it is soon revealed that the father of the woman’s daughter is the dead man, and the ability to never stop bleeding has been passed onto her.

The episode ends with Rohan using his stand, Heaven’s Door, to prevent the daughter from bleeding out after she trips and falls in front of him, demonstrating that the cost of lust can be passed down and cause further suffering.

While the series may keep the viewer engaged during the first viewing, there are no awesome fight scenes that make your draw drop like in “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure,” and the straightforward conclusions of the episodes don’t provide much entertainment for future rewatching.
