The news on Part 9 of the manga follows last week’s announcement about the Stone Ocean anime adaptation, which will be the sixth season.
Stone Ocean, the sixth installment of Hirohiko Araki’s Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, follows the story of Jolyne Cujoh, the daughter of Stardust Crusader’s protagonist Jotaro Kujo. Sentenced to prison for 15 years for a crime she did not commit, Stone Ocean is the ultimate between the ages-long standoff between Dio and the Joestar Family.
The release of Stone Ocean will take place in two media. Firstly, the anime will be available on Netflix globally from December 2021, ahead of its TV airing. Stone Ocean will air on Tokyo MX, MBS, and BS11 from January 2022 onwards.
