Ending Animation

ModernCrusaders

The ending sequence vertically pans up a pillar decorated with statues of Stands encountered in the series, which changes as more enemies and allies are met as the series progresses (the original sequence did not feature Notorious B.I.GSpice Girl, Metallica, Green Day, Oasis or Chariot Requiem but following their introduction they were added to the ending sequence). During the entire sequence, the scenery is plunged in a colored ambient lighting that constantly shifts color and flakes of dust constantly fall from above. The frame is also flanked by two sets of patterns made up of tessellated triangles.

The beginning of the sequence pans up the column featuring the enemy Stands encountered thus far, with a sphere representing Rolling Stones at the base of the pillar, with statues of other Stands on the pillar itself: Black SabbathSoft MachineKraft WorkLittle FeetMan in the Mirror, Mister PresidentBeach BoyThe Grateful DeadBaby Face, White AlbumClash, Talking HeadNotorious B.I.G, Metallica, Green Day and Oasis.

The procession of enemy Stands ends, with a part of the pillar crowned by four Arrows and a ladybug brooch, before moving onto the Stands of the heroes doing battle with the boss. Purple HazeMoody BluesAerosmith, Chariot Requiem, Sticky Fingers and King Crimson, with Sticky Fingers and King Crimson depicted as fighting against each other as the Sex Pistols watch. Spice Girl lays underneath Gold Experience, pointing up at it as it poses at the top of the pillar in the center of a bas-relief resembling rays of light.

Lyrics

Original Lyrics
English Translation
Don't look back, the time has come
All the pain turns into love
We're not submissive, we're not aggressive
But they think we can't defend
STAND UP, JOIN US, MODERN CRUSADERS ALIVE
We have the power to face the future
'Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights
They're accusing, like always without knowing
What is just fiction or what is the truth
They have no mission, they have no passion
But they dare to tell us what's bad and what's good!
STAND UP, JOIN US, MODERN CRUSADERS ALIVE
We have the power to face the future
'Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights
est affectus
et defectus
semper in angaria.
driven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
quod per sortem
sternit fortem,
mecum omnes plangite!
since Fate
strikes down the strong,
everyone weep with me!
nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem
mecum omnes plangite!
first oppresses
and then soothes
playing with mental clarity;
poverty
and power
everyone weep with me!
STAND UP, JOIN US, MODERN CRUSADERS ALIVE
We have the power to face the future
'Cause we are the fighters, just fighting for our rights
STAND UP, JOIN US, MODERN CRUSADERS ALIVE
