This is a wondrous time to be a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fan. In the States, the series went from a beloved cult classic to a major mainstream hit in the anime world. Just a few years ago, you'd only see a handful of JoJo's cosplayers at cons, now they're everywhere! Why? The anime ignited a fire in the fans' hearts! It's not just an animated version of the manga, it's a spirited adaptation that captures the essence of what makes this series so fun and exciting. And now you can watch all three seasons of it in one place!
The first season covers the first two arcs of the manga, Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency. In Phantom Blood, Jonathan Joestar's life is turned upside down when his adopted brother Dio is determined to make his life a living hell. This is where the hatred began and also the genesis of the mysterious Stone Masks. Then the fight shifts to Joseph Joestar, the grandson of Jonathan, as he fights the god-like Pillar Men. Creatures of unimaginable power that could spell doom for all of mankind!
This season covers the Stardust Crusaders arc of the manga and introduces Stands. Based on the tarot deck, Stands are ghostlike projections that fight alongside their users and have all manner of incredible powers. And this season focuses on bad boy Jotaro Kujo, but also includes his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, the hero of the previous arc, but now older and wiser. And funnier.
The manga for this season is not available in the States, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the anime, because it may be the most outlandish yet! Starring Josuke Higashikata, the entire story all takes place in one town—Morioh. This peaceful town becomes anything but as its citizens began developing strange abilities known as Stands. And not everyone uses their new power for good. With the aid of some of the other brave Joestars, Josuke takes on one diabolical Stand user after another to protect his hometown.
