JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. It was originally serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1987 to 2004, and was transferred to the monthly seinen manga magazine Ultra Jump in 2005.
The series is divided into nine story arcs, each following a new protagonist bearing the “JoJo” nickname. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is Shueisha’s largest ongoing manga series by volume count, with its chapters collected in 130 tankōbon volumes as of May 2021.
A 13-episode original video animation series adapting the manga’s third part, Stardust Crusaders, was produced by A.P.P.P. and released from 1993 to 2002. The studio later produced an anime film adapting the first part, Phantom Blood, which was released in theaters in Japan in 2007.
In October 2012, an anime television series produced by David Production adapting Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency began broadcast on Tokyo MX. As of December 2021, the studio has produced five seasons adapting through the manga’s sixth part, Stone Ocean.
The 2nd part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean will stream on Netflix this fall. A new trailer and visual for the series was released at AnimeJapan 2022.
