Hayato tries to avoid meeting Rohan, only to discover the events that occurred last time will still happen even without him being there, resulting in Rohan's death by Bites the Dust's explosion. When Josuke's group arrive at the scene shortly afterwards, Hayato attempts to kill himself to avoid being found out. However, he is stopped by Killer Queen, who sets off Bites the Dust in Josuke and the others and once again returns Hayato to the start of the morning.
Realizing that he can only stop Kira by either killing him or forcing him to undo Bites the Dust, Hayato hides Stray Cat in his backpack, launching a surprise attack on Kira when he follows him later in the morning. However, because of a slight alteration of events due to Hayato's actions, Kira manages to protect himself from Stray Cat's attack with a watch he had put in his jacket.
- Removed the horse and jockey from Shinobu's teapot.
- Removed the Gucci brand from Rohan's watch.
- Removed Okuyasu saying that Hayato kinda looks like the kid in the picture, before Jotaro mentions to look at Hayato's backpack.
- Added that Hayato is falling into Killer Queen's eye, along with a miniature Killer Queen gazing at him as he travels back in time.
|“|| This is the first time in the JoJo series that Toshiyuki Kato and I worked on the storyboard together, splitting the episode into two halves.
Mr. Kato was absolutely determined to draw Hayato under pressure, particularly when the latter was planning to kill Kosaku Kawajiri, so I took the first half of the episode and left him the second. That said, it was still difficult. I'm hoping Hayato's emotions translated well enough on-screen; I would have liked more time in the episode to show his state of mind more.
Bites the Dust is a terrifying power, and at the same time a power that’s hard to understand. (bitter laughs) Truth be told, I don’t even know how many times time was looped for Hayato. So, we avoided the subject in the anime.
