The battle started in Episode 7 continues in Episode 8 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind. Having wounded the second, mysterious, stand user Mista runs after him and finds himself stuck aboard a moving truck. The stand user, Sale, reveals himself and his stand along with its ability, to fix things in place. This makes it especially hard on Mista as Sale can affix Mista’s bullets in place, even to his own skin so that the bullets do not penetrate.

In classic JoJo fashion though, Mista finds a way around by both distracting and outwitting him. This is especially notable as the exact power of Mista’s stand is significantly less than his opponents and he wins by intellect not by raw strength.

A few things came up as problems through the episode though. First, there was a significant part of Mista’s backstory that was left out (though hopefully this will be expanded upon in later episodes). Some of the further additions to Mista’s backstory though, even just small scenes, were appreciated. Second was the atrocious renaming of Sale’s stand Kraft Work into Arts and Crafts in the subtitles. While the changes made to keep from avoiding copyright infringement usually are not bothersome and seen as a necessity, this one just feels particularly egregious.
