Because of his short height, Hinata struggles to get his role on the team, even with his excellent jumping power. Incredibly, Kageyama has his own problems that only Hinata can help with, and learning how to work together is the only way for the team to be successful.

Now in Natsume’s possession, the book gives Reiko’s grandson this power too, which is the reason these enraged beings now haunt him in hopes of somehow getting their freedom.

Review: The JoJo franchise has at all times drew a certain type of crowd – those who are appreciative of classy character designs, excessive action and absurdist comedy. Diamond is Unbreakable uses that formula, comes with a Slice of Life mystery to the equation, throws it all in a blender and turns the dial on high speed. It took people some time to adjust to this new flavor, but the result was arguably the best JoJo has ever been.
