Justice, Part 1 (正義(ジャスティス) その1 Jasutisu Sono Ichi)[1] is the fortieth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime and the fourteenth episode of Stardust Crusaders. It covers the second half of Chapter 154 through the first few pages of Chapter 157 of the manga.

Summary

After explaining Holy's situation to her, Joseph manages to convince Anne to return back to her home in Hong Kong. With heavy fog making it dangerous to continue driving near the cliffs towards Karachi, the group stops by a nearby town to look for a hotel. After failing to get directions from a strangely silent restaurant owner, the group comes across a dead body lying on the street, uncertain of what has caused the man's death.

With no one else in the town seeming to acknowledge the corpse's presence, the group becomes wary and suspects a Stand user is involved, with their suspicions growing when they discover the body is riddled with bloodless holes. Feeling they should leave the town, Joseph jumps towards what he believes to be their car, only to narrowly avoid being impaled by a spiked gate. It is then that Enya appears before the group, claiming to be an innocent old woman and she leads them to a nearby hotel.

As the group checks into their rooms, Hol Horse shows up at the hotel, having tracked the Joestar group to their location. However, Enya, believing Hol Horse should die for abandoning J. Geil, attacks his wrist with some scissors before using Justice, her Stand which takes the form of the fog itself, to make a hole from his wound. Justice then uses the wound to control Hol Horse's arm like a puppet and make him shoot himself with his own Emperor, allowing Enya to set her sights on her next target: Polnareff.

    • Afterwards, there is another scene where the Crusaders go to an airport to send Anne home.

Commentary

We added an original scene at the very beginning of this episode, so that the group could leave Anne, the runaway girl. It was something that the original plot missed, and we had to give her an exit.

The atmosphere is strangely fascinating with this fog. We can feel how dense it is, you'd only need to take a few steps in to completely disappear. Let's not forget the best of the creepies, the cockroachs and lizards crawling beneath with a soft rustle.

Joseph's Stand, Hermit Purple, makes itself remarkably useful in a scene... that is a lot less useful. Yet, this fence jumping looks like an important action in the middle of all that hesitation to go inside the fog. Who knows why we made a scene like this stand out, it wasn't on purpose...

Reiko Suzuki plays a fantastic and sinister Enya. Her wailings and crying with the "Ohlololo" don't sound natural at all and that's why they're perfect (laughs). I find that she exsudes an atmosphere of danger, and you can tell that her Stand will be redoubtable just by looking at her.
