JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind Episode 14 – Express Train to Florence – Turtle Power!

I think I might have made a mistake when making the choice to start talking about individual Jojo episodes, because how do you break down this show and not just sound like a raving lunatic.

Okay, okay, so Bucciarati puts they key they found in the previous episode in a perfect indent on the back of the turtle, and then the gang all get sucked into a pocket dimension to hide from the two assassins chasing them, one of which looks like a thumb crossed with a pineapple… see what I mean about sounding like a mad man.
