And another fun fact, April 4 marks Jonathan’s birthday, and is also the day Stardust Crusaders first aired in Japan. It has been over a year and a half since the Golden Wind anime finished back in July 2019. Fans have been waiting for an anime adaptation of Part 6 titled Stone Ocean ever since, and an event this big might just be the time for it. Still, it’s not guaranteed so we can only hope, but we’ll know for sure after this weekend.
The manga by Hirohiko Araki started in 1987 and is still ongoing. There is a total of 129 tankobon volumes at the moment, and it’s currently at Part 8: Jojolion. As for the part that could be getting an anime adaptation next, it focuses on Jotaro’s daughter Jolyne Kujo.
You can read the synopsis for it below:
Set in and around the maximum-security Green Dolphin Street prison in Florida, surrounded by palm trees, swamps, and man-eating alligators, this storyline stars Jolyne Kujo (Stand: Stone Free), the daughter of Jotaro Kujo. After being falsely accused of a hit-and-run automobile accident, she is sentenced to 15 years in jail, a plot which may be orchestrated by some dark conspiracy, some unknown enemy.
“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” is one of the classics, and this special event might be the perfect time to announce a new anime. One of the biggest meme sources could definitely use some more material! There will be a global livestream for select countries featuring English subtitles. They include the USA, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.
