Seven years from the events in the previous episode, a time when Jack the Ripper roamed the streets of London, Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando attend university together studying archaeology and law respectfully.

The situation between Gintoki and Kintoki intensifies as the latter brands anyone who sides with the former to be an enemy alongside him, taking Tsukuyo, Kyuubei, and Sacchan’s pleas to trust them as his friends as such.
