Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Diamond is Unbreakable HeaderWarner Bros. Japan is handling the home video distribution for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Diamond is Unbreakable in Japan and previously released the full details. While the first volume is set to land in a few days, they’ve now released the full wraparound artwork for the second volume that arrives on July 27th, 206. The thirty-nine episode series is getting a thirteen volume release, three episodes per disc, that begins on June 22nd, 2016.

The Blu-ray’s are priced at 7,800 yen while the DVDs are priced at 6,800 yen each. Those who purchase all thirteen volumes will receive the Kishibe Rohan wa Ugonkanai OVA, presumably through a redemption program within the packaging. The extras listed below have a few blank sections as they list things that don’t translate well, such as “third cool original collection.” Previous seasons have had some unique items and this season looks to do the same.

The show is directed by Naokatsu Tsuda, returning from Stardust Crusaders, with Toshiyuki Kato serving as the series director and Yuuta Takamura as the chief episode director. They’ll be working off of series composition by Yasuko Kobayashi and character designs by Terumi Nishii. David Production will be handling the animation duties for the series.

The cast includes Yuuki Ono as Jousuke Higashikata, Yuuki Kaji as Kouichi Hirose, Wataru Takagi as Okuyasu Nijimura, Takahiro Sakurai as Rohan Kishibe and Daisuke Ono as Joutarou Kuujou.

The original manga for this arc comes from Hirohiko Araki and was serialized originally back in 1992 through 1995, running for eighteen volumes across 174 chapters in Shonen Jump Weekly.

Plot concept: The coastal town of Morioh is plagued by the “Bow and Arrow,” an ancient artifact which manifests latent stand abilities in criminals and ordinary folk alike. At the same time as they are dealing with the huge influx of stand users—both good and bad—in Morioh, high schooler Jousuke Higashikata and his friends are searching for the culprit of a series of homicides.
