There have been a lot of brilliant scenes in anime in 2016; Fango’s death in 91 Days, Reigen’s power inheritance in Mob Psycho 100, the empty children in Kiznaiver, the park scene in ERASED and around 50% of the scenes in Sakamoto Desu Ga? are all great examples of these, and if I were to go through every single one I’d be here all day. However, there are two complete stand-out scenes for me; in this article, I am going to look into exactly what makes these scenes as good as they are.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of the most colorful and fun manga of all time, and the mangaka Hirohiko Araki has nearly perfected the craft of writing quirky and memorable characters. None stand out to me personally as much as Yoshikage Kira from Diamond is Unbreakable. Now, before we go into this, I’d like to note that I am an anime-only watcher and have not read ahead in the manga, so go into this article with that in mind.
