Even the team of assassins has members who care a lot about their teammates. That was part of why they did what they did: to avenge their fallen comrades. Or look at the guy making the drugs, based on Purple Haze Feedback. He had people he really cared about on his team. In a lot of ways, Part 5 makes you feel sympathetic for the enemies in ways a lot of Parts fail to, because it actual shows at least some of the bonds they share with one another, and the effect those bonds being broken have on the survivors. From Pericolo to Doppio, the members of Passione are shown to be people, and often people with at least some redeeming characteristics. David Productions has been making that even clearer in their adaptation of the series, and I love them for that.

My point is, most of Passione aren't monsters who just kill massive numbers of people with no remorse. Even Prosciutto didn't really crank his aging power to the point where many, if anyone, actually died. They might be ruthless and willing to use violence to get what they want...but then, thas describes several of our protagonists so far, Giorno included. Bruno's team really isn't that different from La Squadra.

Hell, even Diavolo has a sympathetic side to him, and I'm not talking about Doppio. He's so afraid of losing or being found out that it kinda seems like he's stopped enjoying anything in life. For someone with one of the most broken and powerful Stands in the series, the guy is so utterly paranoid about being found out that it seems like his life is actually pretty empty. Makes you sympathize with him a bit...until you recall the sh*t he does to make sure his identity stays hidden, and what he's done in the past, and then you hate him again. Honestly, he's kinda like Kira in that regard.

Specifically Passione, who are number one in the country. Not trying to be aggressive, I'm trying to say that you don't need to be bothered. I was never talking about real life Italy. I'm trying to make this sound good willed, but it's hard to say that without getting the facts straight too. It is in a way my fault for not specifying fiction or the real word.

Thing is, the Mafia isn't really as bad, even in Part 5, as some people seem to think. Yes, even Passione. Certainly, there are more than a few absolutely disgusting people in Passione, who are pretty much about as scummy and evil as it gets. And then there are also people like Giorno's team, who, while certainly not saints, are nonetheless not monsters, either. And they certainly do things that hurt others. That said, that's true of criminals in-general, and the Mafia is usually a bit more focused, and, to some extent, honorable in their conduct than most criminals.

Even the team of assassins has members who care a lot about their teammates. That was part of why they did what they did: to avenge their fallen comrades. Or look at the guy making the drugs, based on Purple Haze Feedback. He had people he really cared about on his team. In a lot of ways, Part 5 makes you feel sympathetic for the enemies in ways a lot of Parts fail to, because it actual shows at least some of the bonds they share with one another, and the effect those bonds being broken have on the survivors.
