Hol Horse and Boingo, Part 2 (ホル·ホースとボインゴ その2 Horu Hōsu to Boingo Sono Ni)[1] is the sixty-third episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime, the thirty-seventh episode of Stardust Crusaders and the thirteenth episode of the Egypt Arc. It covers most of Chapter 219 through Chapter 221 of the manga.

Summary

Hol Horse holds Polnareff at gunpoint in order to hide from Jotaro and the others around a corner, but Polnareff manages to get out of the situation thanks to a lucky sneeze. However, upon being exposed, Hol Horse spills some olive oil which causes a truck to skid out of control and almost hit Jotaro and the others, bringing Tohth's prediction to fruition. Hiding from Jotaro, the only one not left unconscious by the crash, Hol Horse and Boingo follow Tohth's next prediction, which states they can kill Jotaro by shooting Hol Horse's bullets through the pipe system at noon sharp. With only a few minutes until noon, the duo rush to get the pipes open and launch their bullets through it. However, Polnareff's lucky sneeze helps Jotaro to dodge the bullets, which end up turning around and hitting Hol Horse instead, while the only thing Jotaro gets hit with is a splash of water. Just as Boingo considers a change of heart, he inadvertently ends up angering Iggy and winds up hospitalized along with Hol Horse.

Commentary

Following the gag episode is another gag episode of course. (laughs) The idea is to look at the characters struggle, only for them to manage to accomplish nothing. Here, no matter everyone's initiatives, they are like the Stand, Thoth's toys. It's particularly true for Hol Horse who repeatedly and miserably fails without being able to do something about it. The poor guy is decidedly unlucky and even ends up in the hospital. At least he survived; surely a little speck of luck in the middle of his misfortune.

This episode marks the end of the comical sequence; time to get serious. But just as the manga has kept things here and there to decrease the tension, the TV series will try to not become excessively serious. It is again an episode with a special ending. They were all story-boarded by Yasufumi Soejima. He did this extravagant request even though he was still busy with work, but he's still offered these burlesque endings and I am very grateful to him.
