Didn't you see it!? Couldn't you see my "spirit"!?



quote:

DIOís handiwork was complete at the end of the sixth part. Araki, the author of Jojo, summed up the week of creation with these words: ďThus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.Ē - Jojonesis 2:1

It's time again, friends. On this day, Jojo has risen and this time her name is Jolyne Cujoh, daughter of Jotaro Kujo. The series opens up with her in prison cussing out her single parent. Sound familiar? Yep, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The last part took us on a road trip around Italy, but this time the series mostly takes place in a localized setting as Jolyne gets used to prison life, with the occasional bizarre encounter, of course.

Compared to previous parts, Part 6 is highly unusual even for a Jojo series. For starters, it's the first to feature a female protagonist. In fact, most of the main cast is female. Second, the story involves very little travel as it takes place mostly inside a prison. The weirdness and wonder comes not from seeing exotic new sights but from the other prisoners and staff she has to put up with. Third, without getting into too much detail, the Stand fights are...bizarre. Very bizarre. But in a good way.

Because of these departures from the formula, Part 6 saw lower popularity compared to the rest of the series. Opinions on it have been historically mixed. Personally, it's my favorite part starring my favorite Jojo and I cannot wait to see it animated. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

As always, keep discussion limited to what has been shown in the anime up until this point. We all goof on occasion, yours truly included, but do your best to be mindful of what thread you're posting in.

Probably around late fall, assuming Covid hasn't screwed up production too badly.

We don't have a date announced yet, and David Productions has been keeping steady with other projects like Fire Force, Cells At Work, and that one volleyball anime. And we still have covid affecting production behind the scenes to some extent. If I was a betting man, I'd say 2022.

This is probably more likely. I have to consciously remind myself that David does other stuff besides Jojo now.

I'm tickled that we've gotten five Jojo series animated and are moving on to a sixth during the writing period of Part 8.

It's going to be surreal for DP to catch up to the manga.

Thanks for pointing this out. Double checked the PV and they are indeed going with the "Cujoh" spelling. OP fixed.

Netflix México doesnt have Jojo and it makes me so depressed (although they do have the Rohan OVA, so I guess they should have the rights to stream the show) Maybe doing the dub of 5 parts it's taking a lot of time.

i was curious and looked it up to remind myself, but the part 4 anime was announced late october of 2015 and started airing the beginning of april 2016. part 5 was announced in late june of 2018 and started airing in early october of 2018. unless there's something huge that gets in the way i guess we can expect 6 to start sometime this year. hopefully we'll get some more info in the next month or so.
