You guys who have not read the manga should really start it now. It's hard to describe how epic a mundane drama slipping into gothic horror then adventure shounen have become. Araki have become bolder and more audacious as his art grew better through the parts.

I doubt this'll get licensed, what with all the music references and such. Even so, I will prepare myself liked I've never done before for this series.

This is awesome, JoJo is consider as manly men's manga and a long time Shonen/Seinen steward. Now the question is which generation it'll cover.

The idea of a Jojo anime excites me, I have to admit, but I'm not sure there'll be any way it could live up to the manga's reputation. It should be interesting to watch all the same though.

They already did an OVA for Stardust Crusaders, so they may just be doing the first series, I really don't know at this point. It would be ambitious for them to adapt each of the series, but personally I think that's wishful thinking, since most shows these days tend to only run around 24 episodes.

I can see Sunrise animating it. With the sponsoring of Bandai, for the videogame and possible new toy and figurine lines. Especially with Part 3 where the Stands appears.

I was about to cave in & read the manga.

I'll wait for the anime now though. Can't wait to see it.

It doesn't say much of anything just something about Phantom Blood(which we already knew was being covered going by the trailer) and the key visual for the anime. Nothing about the studio yet.

You can see the first key visual from Ultra Jump here: https://twitter.com/kars_52/status/2...462723/photo/1

Art looks really weird.

Weird? Have you read the manga?

Huh? I'm very familiar with Jojo. But for an anime key visual based on the first Phantom Blood cover, that art is really weird. It doesn't look like the sort of design which is well suited for animation, and the changes to the faces are pretty unusual. The colors also seem off. I'm just surprised that they would put out a key visual like that promoting the TV anime (which is a huge deal for fans) without any actual info or staff announcements. It's like they want people to fear for the worst.

I suppose they want the design to be weird but they will make it work somehow.

Well, I just hope they know what they're doing. It'll be disappointing if they finally got a Jojo TV anime produced, and they start from the first part, only to have it turn out to be bad.

My main concern is not the art though, but rather the story telling and the amount of episodes for every arc/part.

I do agree the character designs look a bit odd, but they are consistent with the manga so I think they do the job more or less. In the end it will all really depend on the studio and staff.

As someone who who's a huge fan of this series (heck, just look at my avatar ), I think it's pretty much natural that I'm gonna check out this anime. From what I gathered, it's apparently supposed to cover ALL the sagas, but I'm not really sure how that would work (crossover, maybe?). Still, considering how flat-out obtuse the series can be a lot of the time, I really have to wonder how well it'll translate to animation......

The key visual does look weird. It doesn't look like any of Araki's numerous art styles.

Looks like Warner Japan is producing the TV anime. Very odd partners. Instead of listing an anime studio or any staff for now, they instead have a few members of the production committee listed:

- Warner Entertainment Japan: http://www.warnerbros.co.jp/
- Shueisha: http://www.shueisha.co.jp/
- Klockworx: http://www.klockworx.com/
- Medicos Entertainment: http://www.medicos-e.net/

I wonder if it could be Studio 4C, since they also worked with Warner on the Berserk movies...
