Things get hectic when Joseph accidentally knocks the baby into the river.

Commentary

This episode really spotlights the father-son relationship between Josuke and Joseph. It's a bit awkward in the beginning, but it's good to see the gap fill between them, little by little. A story centered around human feelings is very rare in JoJo, although it’s dotted with comedic elements.

The invisible baby also has the interesting ability to make the environment surrounding it invisible as well. The parts that were invisible were actually drawn in the key frames. With digital effects being commonplace nowadays, we erased the parts that were invisible afterwards.

The music playing at the end is an arrangement of a music track from part 3. It evokes Joseph as an old man but still ready to do the impossible and help those around him. What this golden-hearted old man does to save the little girl is admirable.

Episode 13 also marks a pause in the first half of part 4. As such, it summarizes the situation thus far and spreads clues about upcoming events here and there; the best example being Rohan Kishibe’s sudden appearance. It's about reminding the audience that even with Akira Otoishi’s arrest, there are still a lot of Stand Users created by the bow and arrow who are roaming free. Let’s keep our guard up!

Trivia

  • The mascot of the Bear Tears team in "Oh! That's A Baseball!" makes an appearance on the Papapoko brand of diapers when Joseph goes shopping.
  • The letter Kai Harada reads on his radio show is from a man describing how his girlfriend has gone missing after he gave her a ruby-adorned engagement ring. This is a reference to the Killer's latest victim, with her severed hand being seen in the previous episode.
