Judgement, Part 2 (審判(ジャッジメント) その2 Jajjimento Sono Ni)[1] is the forty-eighth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime and the twenty-second episode of Stardust Crusaders. It covers the last three pages of Chapter 176 through most of Chapter 179 of the manga.


Corresponding with Polnareff's third wish, Judgement makes a clay doll of Avdol, who joins the Sherry doll in attacking Polnareff, biting off his flesh. Before the dolls can kill off Polnareff, he is suddenly saved by the real Avdol, who had actually survived his encounter with Hol Horse as the seemingly fatal bullet had only grazed him. With the two managing to overcome the dolls, Avdol brings out the full strength of Magician's Red against Cameo's Judgement, effectively dissipating it.

After the fight, Polnareff and Avdol find a piece of bamboo sticking out from the ground, surmising that the real Cameo is hidden below. The pair drop spiders and mud down to block his breathing, and they finishing by urinating into the bamboo, which forces him to the surface, where Avdol properly deals with him. After reuniting with the group, Polnareff is shocked to find that the others knew Avdol was alive the entire time, keeping it a secret from him to prevent the enemy from finding out. Avdol further reveals he had disguised himself as his father in order to purchase a submarine for the group.




Manga/Anime Differences

  • The anime added a final moment between the fake Sherry & Polnareff; originally Judgement throws her and Avdol incinerates the body with Magician's Red.
