~ Anjuro Katagiri

Anjuro "Angelo" Katagiri is one of the minor antagonists of JoJo's Bizarre Adventures: Diamond is Unbreakable and the central antagonist of it's movie version: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I. He is a criminal that wields his Stand Aqua Necklace.

In the anime, he was voiced by Kenji Hamada and Lex Lang in its English dub. In the movie adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable, he is portrayed by Takayuki Yamada.

What makes him Pure Evil

All Versions:

  • Anjuro killed Josuke's maternal grandfather, Ryohei Higashikata, by tricking him into opening the bottle and mocked Josuke by blaming him for his grandfather's death by being "cocky". He then attempted to do so with the rest of the family members.

Anime/Manga Version:

  • Anjuro committed multiple felonies when he was twelve years old, giving him then notoriety as the evilest criminal in Japanese history.
  • He kidnapped, raped and murdered three young boys. One of whom he castrated.
  • Anjuro possessed a man to kill an innocent woman with his Stand Aqua Necklace.
  • After failing to rob a store, Anjuro went on a killing spree before turning his attention towards the Higashikatas.
  • Anjuro killed an innocent man with his dog after their interference.
  • As Anjuro explained how he obtained his stand, his Aqua Necklace nearly killed an innocent child.
  • While he has far lower kill count than most JoJo Pure Evils, his worst crimes are: pedophilia, serial rape and sodomy, which all three are unique compared to the franchise's standards. He is more serious than the fourth arc's main antagonist Yoshikage Kira, and Angelo has more crimes that are worse than the murders Kira committed. Also, killing Josuke's grandfather is the reason why he managed to stand out.
  • Angelo's depravity and crimes are heinous enough to the point where even Jotaro, who have seen mass murderers and terrorists in the past and barely shows contempt towards villains finds Angelo as a genuinely disturbing Individual, even saying that just reading about his crimes makes him physically ill.

Movie Version:

  • Despite stating he had a terrible father who made him into who he was, it seems to have little justification to his crimes.
  • For various years, murdered various people, including his own father.
  • Held a family hostage and murdered the father when he escaped from the police.
  • Murdered a teenager with Aqua Necklace, and possessed another kid to old a cashier hostage.
  • While he was slightly affable with Keicho, he didn’t show any care for him and only worked for him out of pragmaticism.
