Poor Shigechi. If you are studying this text and also you one way or the other have not damaged into JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure but, let me break down the character of Shigekiyo Yangu for you.

His Stand, Harvest, is mainly a bunch of tiny creatures that enable him to scan any space and steal no matter he desires with out anybody noticing. Something that Josuke makes an attempt to place to his personal use.
