Anime & Manga Japan / JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険)

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle - Teaser

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1987 to 2002, before being transferred to the monthly seinen magazine Ultra Jump in 2004. The current story arc, JoJolion, started in 2011. It is currently Shueisha's second longest running manga series with 106 volumes and counting (only Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo, with over 170 volumes, has more). It was previously the longest manga not to have a TV anime adaptation, until one was announced in July 2012, scheduled to start in October 2012.

The story of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure centers around the misadventures of the Joestars, a powerful family with English roots. Each member of the bloodline has a star shaped birthmark above their left shoulder blade – Dio Brando, the original nemesis of the Joestar family, and his descendants have this distinguishable mark also, a result from Dio's 'theft' of Jonathan Joestar's body and inheriting the Joestar genes as well. The series spans several generations, with each part featuring a descendent of the Joestars as the main protagonist along with a large cast of characters.

The series' title is a reference to the fact that each part's main character's name can be read as JoJo. A nickname derived by putting together the letters "J" and "O" from their first and last names. Later installments have additional variations on the JoJo wordplay. For example, in the name Josuke, the Japanese character representing "suke" can also be read as "Jo", likewise in the Italian name Giorno, "Gio" is pronounced very similar to "Jo".
