Body Bizarre - Plot - Netflix
The manga begins in 2001, when the Diamond Is Unbreakable character Koichi Hirose goes to Naples at the request of Jotaro Kujo to find someone known as Haruno Shiobana and get a skin sample of theirs. Shiobana turns out to be a middle school student named Giorno Giovanna—which sounds similar to “Haruno Shiobana”—who is the son of Dio Brando. Giorno attempts to steal Koichi's luggage, but is stopped by Koichi's Stand, Echoes Act 3. Giorno recognized his power as being a Stand power similar to his Gold Experience, a Stand that can give life to inanimate objects. The story then follows Giorno as he tries to become a boss of the mafia in order to make Naples a better place and help its people, specifically where availability of drugs to young people are concerned. After an altercation with gang member Leaky Eye Luca, he attempts to join Passione, an organized crime group that employs many Stand users. He is approached by a member of Passione, Bruno Bucciarati, who suspects him of killing Luca. During the fight, readers are introduced to Buciarati's Stand, Sticky Fingers, that can place and open a zipper on any surface. Bucciarati challenges Giorno to complete the rite to join Passione, and therefore visit the Capo, Polpo, in prison. Giorno is given a lighter by Polpo, with instructions to not let it go out, in order to prove his dedication. When it is accidentally extinguished by a passerby, Polpo's Stand Black Sabbath is activated, which pursues Giorno from the shadows, quite literally. Giorno is able to subdue Black Sabbath with the help of Koichi, passing Polpo's test and joining Passione. He is placed in the group of Bucciarati, who agrees to work with Giorno to take over the mob from within, and put an end to the Passione drug trade. Bucciarati is the superior of the four other members of Giorno's group, fellow Stand users Guido Mista, Leone Abbacchio, Narancia Ghirga, and Pannacotta Fugo. Throughout the span of the story, the group - suspicious of Giorno - soon discover his courage and generosity, and slowly warm to him. After finding Polpo's amassed fortune following his death on the island of Capri, Bucciarati is promoted and his group is assigned a secret mission by the boss himself—escort his teenage daughter, Trish Una, safely to him. With the help of a Stand-using turtle, they fend off various attacks by Stand-using traitors within the mob, who are determined to overthrow the boss—only by kidnapping Trish can they hope to learn his identity. After traveling to Pompeii and Florence, they arrive in Venice to meet the boss at the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore on San Giorgio Maggiore island. However, while doing so Bucciarati discovers that the boss only wanted Trish brought to him so he could kill her himself—his intent was nothing more than to permanently conceal his identity. He alone tries to kill the Boss, in order for him and Giorno to achieve their goal, but realizes his Stand that can erase time and subsequently predict events is too powerful and decides to retreat. Bucciarati's group, minus Fugo, then join him in betraying the Boss and protecting Trish so they can learn his identity. Even after Trish discovers her own Stand ability, they find themselves in the unenviable position of opposing all of the Passione gang in order to protect her. They travel to the boss's hometown of Sardinia, after Trish informs them that that is where her mother met him. There, Giorno and company are contacted by someone who knows the boss's identity, but will only tell them in person. They travel to Rome to meet him, but the boss follows them there as well and kills him first. In Rome, it is revealed that the person who contacted Giorno and company was Jean Pierre Polnareff, a member of the Joestar group in Part 3: Stardust Crusaders. However, just before Polnareff dies, he uses a Stand Arrow on his own Stand upgrading it to Chariot Requiem, which gives it the ability to control people's spirits. It exchanges everyone's spirit with another, switching their bodies. Now in the turtle's body, Polnareff explains to the group about the Stand arrows and the boss's identity as Diavolo, which he knows having once fought him some years ago. However, as Polnareff is dead, Chariot Requiem is out of control and will not allow anyone to get the arrow. The group and Diavolo, hidden in Mista's body alongside Trish's spirit because of the switch, chase after it. While Diavolo succeeds in defeating it, thanks to Bucciarati's sacrifice Giorno obtains the arrow and succeeds in upgrading his Stand to Gold Experience Requiem to defeat Diavolo. His new power causes Diavolo to continuously experience death over and over. In the last scene, Giorno is seen, with Mista, having men kneel before him, suggesting he becomes the boss of Passione.
