Plot Summary

Jotaro Kujo! Meets Josuke Higashikata

Jotaro meets josuke

Josuke and Jotaro meet

An older Jotaro Kujo travels to coastal Morioh, Japan, in order to meet high school freshman Josuke Higashikata and link him with the inheritance of Joseph Joestar; his aging, absent father.

Once Josuke displays his Stand, Crazy Diamond, Jotaro shares the news of a paranormal threat in Morioh, revealing that a Stand-using murderer named Anjuro Katagiri is lurking in Morioh.

Josuke Higashikata! Meets Anjuro

The murderer Anjuro Katagiri targets Josuke with his new Stand Aqua Necklace for foiling a robbery. After Anjuro kills Josuke's grandfather Ryohei (a police officer), Josuke pledges to adopt his role as Morioh's protector.

Josuke and Jotaro eventually defeats Anjuro, who is fused to a rock. Anjuro reveals that he acquired his Stand when one man used a Bow and Arrow on him.

The Nijimura Brothers

Josuke and Koichi Hirose find a dilapidated house when Koichi is struck by the Arrow, soon releasing his dormant Stand Echoes.

The culprits Okuyasu and Keicho Nijimura aim to create Stand users in hope that they will be able to kill their father, transformed into a dumb, undying creature by DIO's cells upon his death. Josuke proves to them that their father is partially human, dissuading them.

The group is then attacked by the electrical Stand Red Hot Chili Pepper, which kills Keicho and takes the Bow and Arrow. Thus, Okuyasu joins the allies in locating this second murderer.

Koichi Hirose (Echoes)

Jotaro, perceived as the greater threat, is warned by the user of Red Hot Chili Pepper to leave Morioh.

Koichi is extorted by Tamami Kobayashi of the new Stand The Lock, but when Josuke exposes his scam, Tamami flees. Tamami then draws in Koichi's mother and sister, and provokes the metamorphosis of Koichi's Stand into Echoes ACT1 which can implant sounds into objects and people. When Koichi manages to lift his mother's guilt, Tamami surrenders to Koichi.

Toshikazu Hazamada (Surface)

Fellow student Toshikazu Hazamada targets Josuke with his new Stand Surface, assuming his appearance he plans to kill Jotaro with Surface disguised as Josuke, but is eventually foiled by Josuke and Koichi's efforts.

Yukako Yamagishi Falls in Love

When defeated, Toshikazu expresses to Jotaro and Josuke the observation that, as though by fate, "Stand users are bound to meet."

Fellow student Yukako Yamagishi confesses her love to Koichi, who is initially pleased but then finds Yukako too scary. When Josuke and Okuyasu try to help him by slandering him, Yukako kidnaps Koichi, determined to make him love her whilst holding him with her new Stand Love Deluxe. Koichi's Stand develops again into Echoes ACT2 before he defeats and then rescues her.

Let's Go Eat Some Italian Food

Josuke and Okuyasu discover the benevolent culinary master Tonio Trussardi, a natural user of the Stand Pearl Jam operating a fine Italian restaurant.

Red Hot Chili Pepper

Red Hot Chili Pepper reappears, attacking Josuke in his home. Jotaro gathers the group in a field, aiming to be free of its range; but from a motorcycle, it eavesdrops on a plan to receive Joseph Joestar and utilize his psychic Stand Hermit Purple to locate the user. Okuyasu attacks and lets Red Hot Chili Pepper.

When Joseph arrives at Morioh's docks, user Akira Otoishi reveals himself, fighting Josuke. Josuke seemingly wins against Akira by throwing Red Hot Chilli Pepper into the sea, but Akira manages to sneak on the boat Joseph is. Akira is finally defeated by Okuyasu due to dumb luck.

Picked Up Something Bad!

Akira's Bow and Arrow are taken into the Speedwagon Foundation's custody, fostering a temporary peace.

Josuke and Joseph share an awkward moment before discovering Shizuka, an invisible baby (of the Stand Achtung Baby) apparently abandoned on the streets of Morioh. When Shizuka falls into a pond while invisible, Joseph manages to impress Josuke by using his own blood to discover her, and their relationship improves. Joseph subsequently adopts Shizuka.

Let's Go Play at the Mangaka's House

Koichi and Toshikazu Hazamada meet eccentric manga author Rohan Kishibe, user of Heaven's Door which can transform anyone who sees his drawing into books. Rohan, very interested in Koichi because he makes a great comic character, forces him to come back to his house to dig further experiences from him.

Josuke saves Koichi when Rohan taunts him about his hair and literally becomes blind with rage and unable to see Rohan's drawings. How Josuke got his haircut is revealed, and Rohan is sent to the hospital.

Let's Go 'Hunting'!

Jotaro enlists Josuke's help in hunting a rat Stand user. Josuke discovers the rat which uses Ratt, enabling it to melt anyone it shoots, and defeats him. However the existence of a second rat using the same Stand dubbed Bug-Eaten by Jotaro is revealed.

While Jotaro acts as a bait, Josuke snipes Bug-Eaten with Crazy Diamond and kills it.

Reimi AN

Reimi pleading to Rohan and Koichi

Rohan draws Koichi into helping with his research. The pair discover a ghostly alley inhabited by Reimi Sugimoto, victim of an unknown serial murderer over a decade prior.

When Yukako, Koichi and Aya meet again in the latter's salon, Aya tests Koichi by having him choose Yukako's original face from a multitude of other faces. When Koichi wants Aya to make him blind if he's mistaken, Aya is impressed by his love and gives Yukako her original face back.

Sheer Heart Attack

Jotaro and Koichi find the origin of Kira's button in a shoe shop, where Kira attacks with his Stand's secondary power, Sheer Heart Attack.

Volume 47



  • An official anime adaptation was announced on October 24, 2015, with David Production returning to produce and direct. The first episode aired on April 1, 2016, and the 39th and final episode aired on December 23, 2016.


  • A live-action movie of Part 4 produced by Warner Bros. and directed by Takashi Miike was announced in September 28, 2016. It will be released in Japanese theaters in summer 2017.



  • This part is notable for taking place in a fictional setting, without travelling to any real locations.
  • Leaving the Tarot and Egyptian mythology in Part 3, Part 4 primarily references popular (rock) music in its names.
  • Araki states that it is possible that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure could have ended with Part 3, since the resurrection of DIO was the last plot element of precedent.[21]
  • The title of this arc was formerly translated as Diamond Is Not Crash.[citation needed]
  • This part is notable for having one of the most drastic changes in art style as it progressed. At its inception, it took on the muscular, Fist of the North Star-esque look that was present in the previous three parts. Around the middle of the part, the various characters took on a more youthful appearance, particularly in the case of Josuke and Koichi. By the end of Diamond Is Unbreakable, the manga adopted the glamorous art style in which characters go from very muscular to athletic that would define the visual presentation of Vento Aureo and Stone Ocean.
