JoJo’s Bizzare Aventure
The first manga in the series, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Phantom Blood, came out in 1986. Hirohiko Araki has been writing the series ever since, with the latest installment, JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure Part 8: JoJolion ending this month. In addition to the main series, many side stories, including Purple Haze Feedback, also exist.
It’s worth noting that before David Production rebooted the series, Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure manga had a number of adaptations over the years. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (1993-1994) and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2000) OVA series both adapted the events of Stardust Crusaders (Part 3). The plot followed Jonathan Joestar and his grandson Jotaro, in their fight to stop Dio. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood movie from 2007 was based on Part 1 of the manga. However, this movie is not available on home media, because Shueisha terminated its relationship with the A.P.P.P. studio.
