12 Days of HOTBLOOD 2013, Day 8: German Science is the Finest in the World

german science is the world's finest

Back in Black

Having only just survived his battle with JoJo, all that’s left of AC/DC is a brain and some blood vessels. He needs to hurry and find shelter before the sun comes up and destroys him once and for all. Surrounded by powerful Ripple users, his only choice is Lisa Lisa’s assistant, Suzy Q. With his new disguise, he’s able to ship the Red Stone of Aja – the key to unlocking the full potential of the Pillar Men – off on a shipping boat, out of Lisa Lisa’s clutches. His purpose fulfilled, he blows his cover by doing the one thing a Pillar Man cannot help but do: start posing.

Suzy Q’s normal human body cannot hope to achieve the fabulousness of a Pillar Man, so it’s up to JoJo and Caesar to exorcise AC/DC before he makes her pose herself to death. Only with their combined power can they force him out into the open, where they let the sunlight take care of the rest.

Cars vs Cars

The Red Stone has been stolen by Nazis! Are Caesar and JoJo bad enough dudes to recover the Stone? Of course they are, so they set off on a road trip to get it back. But so is Cars – AC/DC gave his life to get the stone out of the Ripple users’ hands, and he is determined to see to it that this sacrifice was not in vain. However, as he casually strolls down the road to the Nazis’ hideout, some important business comes up that he has to take care of.

German Science is the Finest in the World

At the Nazi hideout, Cars senses the heat inside the cabin to detect several Nazis standing guard against the back wall. Having identified each of their heights, a single sweep of his arm blade through the wall easily beheads the lot of them.

But once inside, Cars discovers that there was a phantom sixth man, a mechanical soldier who had been eagerly anticipating his arrival. JoJo bursts into the room just in time to see the mysterious figure unmasked…

Stroheim has received a full-body upgrade since being blown to bits in the fight against the first Pillar Man, Santana. He’s now gone fullmetal, using the awe-inspiring power of German Science, the greatest in the world!

Alas, Cars is also armed to the teeth, and he manages to grab the Stone and make a break for it!

Five Seconds Until Impact

German Science proves itself once again, as Stroheim’s UV eye laser knocks the Stone from Cars’ grip, and it, JoJo, and Cars all race down the slippery slope toward the edge of the nearby cliff.

It’s a game of chicken, but Cars holds all the cards, as he can easily survive the fall. He anticipates one of JoJo’s many tricks, but JoJo sees it coming and manages to get his hands on the Stone. Cars has got just as many tricks up his sleeve (or boot, in this case), and in a quadruple-cross of tricks, counter-tricks, counter-counter-tricks, and counter-counter-counter-tricks, they both take the plunge, with the Stone in JoJo’s hand. With only five seconds until impact, it’s do-or-die time.

…except that the five seconds to impact really ends up being more like three minutes. Cars threatens to cut JoJo in half and retrieve the stone at the canyon floor; there’s no way for JoJo to dodge the attack. But this is JoJo we’re dealing with, and he deals with the situation in a way that only JoJo could.

Ricocheting his way to a safe landing, Cars is left once again without the stone. At least this time, he takes it with a sense of humor.

    One of my “animeniac” goals is to find and watch a Blu-Ray release of Jojo 2012/13 before All-Star Battle hits US stores.

    • BokuSatchii says:

      There are a few BD rips out there (these screencaps are taken from one), if that’s what you’re looking for. Otherwise, I’m sad to report that I doubt there will be a stateside BD release (or any kind of release) for JoJo 2012, so your only other option would be to import the Japanese BDs for the usual soul-crushing price.

      In the meantime, I’m still desperately searching for the US releases of volumes 2 and 6 of the Stardust Crusaders manga. I’ve got 1, 3-5, and 7-16, but I cannot find those two anywhere for less than fifty buc-HOLY CRAP VOLUME TWO IS $10 ON AMAZON BRB

      • Overlord-G says:

        Oh Mr Satchii…I think you know what I meant by BD releases. There’s a certain sound a cat makes on board of a ship with a skull flag, if you get my drift.
        Hope you got what you’re looking for. I just want the game for now. I’ll watch the second season when it airs as well.

      • BokuSatchii says:

        I figured as much; in which case I believe you have at least Commie, Dmonhiro, Bunny Hat, and Buddy Waters to choose from.

        While I’m visiting home for the holidays I’m trying to convince my brother to get JoJo for his PS3 so I can play it when I come home in the future, since I don’t have one myself. I don’t know if it’ll work, but it’s worth a shot.
