Looking forward to this the most next season. Jojo is such a great manga and the PV really did it justice.

Not much of a major update, but the Jojo site has a new design and key visual now: http://wwws.warnerbros.co.jp/jojo-animation/

Agreed. This is one badass voice cast. I was surpirsed to see Yuki Kaji announced as part of it. Seeing as how he's been type-casted in roles like Shu, Amata & Haruyuki, but maybe he'll show us something new?

The problem is that JoJo IS MEGA OLD. Like, its drawing style have often worked against it when you try to introduce it to new people. Most of my efforts to get it spread in my chatroom then inner, and outer, circle have proved to be... fruitless. It's really frustrating. I kept telling people to check it out because it is MANLY, FABULOUS and clever, and have this crazy X factor that still set it apart from the Big Three, but NO, people would rather go for whatever is the flavor of the month. And no, I am NOT talking about just mo.

I am hoping that this anime can help changing the game a bit. But I expect. #1. Random snark from Aroduc who will go back to whatever harem romcom action LN adaptation will catch his interest. #2. Style acting as a filter against the mainstream audience.

In other words, my expectations are low.

I'm very much mainstream - watching whatever is popular - but I still think Jojo's cool. Never read it, but the trailer looks absolutely fabulous.

Reallly psyched for it, and if it's as good as the fans say, I hope it WILL spread to a bigger audience.

Isn't that Aroduc's default reaction to 90% of all shows though ? Not to mention this used to run in JUMP, so it never stood a shot with him in the first place.

I can understand this point (and what you wrote before it) and I have seen that reaction as well whenever I tried recommending the series to any of my acquaintances, with it's length and age playing against it most of the time. The bizarreness actually sort of was the thing that got most of the people I know interested in it, so while I do think the style is going to be a filter to more modern audiences, it's also going to be an appealing factor to a lot of people as well.

The thing is, I don't have particularly huge expectations on this being a mega hit (like I said, this is from the era where Fist of the North Star was still the big thing, which makes it very dated, and there are only hints of bizarreness that the series had become so well known for that wont fully blossom till Diamond are Unbreakable, so it doesn't have the full appeal) I don't see it as flying under the radar. Anime fans had heard of Jojo, even if they never read it or seen the OVA, they know of the cast and the franchise, so it already exists in the subconscious of the English Fandom. At the very least the series is sort of a cult classic on this side of the pond so the more loyal fans are certainly not going to miss it.

I can't speak for the Japanese Fandom, but I would imagine that a 25 year old series that it still ongoing to this day and is considered a classic would have a sizable following behind it.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure TV BDs to Have English Subs

Also revealed to be 9 volumes so we can make a guess on the episode number based on that.

No, there are 3 episodes in Vol1. It seems like a normal 2-cour release at 9 volumes, so probably 26 episodes.

Edit: http://www.animate-onlineshop.jp/pn/pd/1178661/

Listing here confirms the final volume contains 2 episodes. Ep25-26. So that confirms 26 episodes.

Seeing as Battle Tendency hasn't been remotely mentioned up till this point and it's longer than Phantom Blood, it's possible this may just be covering Phantom Blood. Of course we have to see how it goes either way.

26 episodes would be way too much for Phantom Blood alone. It's not even 5 volumes long, after all. I have good hopes we're finally going to see the part with the best Jojo animated.

Why would they mention anything other than what is currently upcoming? It doesn't make sense to mention Battle Tendency at all until Phantom Blood wraps up. They'll be doing Battle Tendency though, we can be pretty sure about that. An animator working the show mentioned some time back that the TV series will cover the first two parts of the manga.

Actually Phantom Blood IS 5 volumes and 47 chapters could certainly equal out to 24 episodes or so if they weren't in a rush to get through it or expanded on certain areas of the story. I'm not saying there's no way Battle Tendency isn't included in this, but until we hear otherwise I think it's best to assume it's just Phantom Blood.

Plus as I mentioned before, Araki didn't take to kindly to previously rushed adaptions of Jojo so I'm assuming that since this was approved, the pacing isn't going to be all that fast, but again I'm not totally sure.

his point is that the last few chapter of volume 5 is already about Joseph and Battle Tendency saga

that's why it's not full 5 volumes long

There's really no way 5 volumes can equal 26 episodes anyway, unless it's a really, really bad adaptation that moves at a snails pace. 26 episodes is more than enough to do all 12 volumes of Jojo, which is the plan.
