Khnum's Oingo and Tohth's Boingo (「クヌム神」のオインゴと「トト神」のボインゴ "Kunumu-shin" no Oingo to "Toto-shin" no Boingo) is the fifty-third episode of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime, the twenty-seventh episode of Stardust Crusaders, and the Third episode of Egypt Arc. It covers last few pages of Chapter 189 through Chapter 192 of the manga.
As the Joestar group arrives in Aswan to get Kakyoin and Avdol into the hospital, the brothers Oingo, whose Stand Khnum allows him to change his face to appear like anyone else, and Boingo, whose Stand Tohth is a comic book that predicts a person's death, plan on stopping the group for DIO. Boingo reveals to Oingo that Tohth has predicted that Jotaro, Joseph, and Polnareff will drink poisoned tea, so Oingo disguises himself as a café's waiter to poison the group's tea, but is almost thwarted when Joseph desires a cola and the plans are run completely awry when Iggy causes a commotion.
Surprised by the events, Oingo and Boingo consult Tohth, again, after assaulting a man and taking his money, and discover that Tohth has predicted that Jotaro will die from a bomb hidden in an orange. Oingo prepares the trap once more, planting the prophesized bomb in the group's car, but he is caught offguard by the return of Joseph and Polnareff, forcing him to disguise himself as Jotaro. He joins the two in the car, and both he and Boingo soon realize that while he is still disguised as Jotaro, he might be the one Tohth predicted would be affected by the bomb. Oingo manages to escape the car, but the bomb finds its way back to him and he is injured, just as the real Jotaro rejoins his grandfather and Polnareff. Boingo tries to cheer his brother up, but they are assaulted by some thugs the man they had robbed earlier had hired, taking them out of the running to stop the Joestar group.
|“|| Here is Oingo and Boingo's episode, who were introduced in the third part of Episode 26. It wasn't done because there was not enough material for Episode 26, but more because there was too much for Episode 27 and we had to resolve this problem.
Firstly, I want to point out how closely we had reproduced Boingo's comic-book Stand. This version is made from illustrations from the original manga that we colorized.
This episode doesn't shine through memorable action scenes, so the stakes were elsewhere. We had to find a good pacing to develop this story entirely carried by the voice acting of the two voice actors. On top of that, it was all accompanied by a Disney or cartoon-style score which I found had the nicest effect and perfectly fitted the tone of the episode.
I remember well the dub stage, where Daisuke Ono, Jotaro's VA, really looked like he was having a great time. His text was full of lines the real Jotaro would have never said.
The special ending is an idea I had proposed. It pleased Mr. Oomori, the producer, and it came to fruition. Regarding the music, Yugo Kanno managed all of the ending's composition. He really polished it, I find the end result very funny.
