JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Celebrates 10th Anniversary With Special Promo

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is celebrating the milestone 10th Anniversary for the anime with a special new promo! Hirohiko Araki’s original manga series is one of Shueisha’s longest running manga franchises overall. First hitting the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump back in 1987 (before moving to the Ultra Jump magazine in the early 2000s), the manga has gone through a litany of changes over the years that has seen it go on to nine different iterations and more. But it’s been just as long and winding of a road for the official anime adaptation too.

While JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure did have some major anime adaptation projects scattered throughout the years, it wasn’t until it was picked up for a full TV anime adaptation from David Production in 2012 that fans really got to see Araki’s series come to life. Ten years later, the anime is now in the midst of the sixth iteration of the series scheduled to release some time this Fall with Netflix. Looking back on ten long years of the anime, Warner Bros. Japan has shared a special new video hyping up the franchise’s milestone anniversary! You can check it out below:

As for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure‘s anime future, Part 2 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean is currently scheduled to hit Netflix worldwide some time this Fall. It’s caused quite a stir with fans considering the first five parts of the anime were released on a weekly basis, but it’s all changed this time around. If you wanted to check out the series before the new episodes debut, Stone Ocean is officially described as such:

“Florida, USA, 2011. Jolyne Cujoh is framed and sentenced to 15 years in jail after getting in a car accident with her boyfriend.

While visiting, her father Jotaro Kujo reveals a terrifying truth and mentions a man named Dio. Will Jolyne Cujoh ever free herself from this ‘stone ocean’ that is a prison? Amid this, a century-old feud between Dio and the Joestars enters its climax.”
