High Priestess, Part 1 (女教皇(ハイプリエステス) その1 Hai Puriesutesu Sono Ichi)[1] is the forty-ninth episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime and the twenty-third episode of Stardust Crusaders. It covers most of Chapter 179 through Chapter 180 of the manga.


The group begins their underwater journey beneath the Red Sea via submarine. Along the way, Joseph makes a call to his wife Suzi Q, who is unaware about his circumstances, making sure she does not travel to Japan to check up on Holy, whose condition continues to worsen. Just as the group approaches the Egyptian shore, Joseph is suddenly attacked by a Stand, which had been disguising itself as a mug and soon transforms itself to hide in the submarine. Avdol recognizes the Stand as that of the High Priestess, wielded from far away by a woman named Midler, which has the ability to transform into any mineral substance.

As the submarine is put into chaos from the Stand's attacks, the submarine begins to leak and sink. Jotaro answers another call from Suzi Q, who becomes concerned about what she hears. With the submarine at the bottom of the ocean and running low on oxygen, Jotaro attempts to crush High Priestess with Star Platinum, but it escapes by transforming into a razor. Unable to directly attack High Priestess, the group attempts to escape to the surface while Suzi Q and her butler Roses head to Japan.
