JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure creator Hirohiko Araki has delivered the news back in April 2021 that an anime adaptation is in the works for the Stone Ocean arc of his series. WB Japan is handling the home video releases for this. The show has solicited for three Blu-ray box sets that come in at 25,000 yen each which began on November 30th, 2022.

With the first set now out, we have a look at the full and larger packaging spread for the third set which showcases a really slick-looking set. Check out the full schedule below.

The project has Kenichi Suzuki returning to serve as the chief director with Toshiyuki Kato as the series director. The series composition is being handled by Yasuko Kobayashi once again with Masanori Shino working on the character designs. David Production is back for the animation production as well.

The Japanese cast includes Ai Fairouz as Jolyne Cujoh, Mutsumi Tamura as Ermes Costello, Mariya Ise as F.F (Foo Fighters), Atsumi Tanezaki as Emporio Alnino, Yuichiro Umehara as Weather Forecast (Weather Report), Daisuke Namikawa as Narciso Anastasia (Narciso Anasui), and Daisuke Ono as Jotaro Kujo.

The Stone Ocean manga ran for seventeen volumes between January 2000 and April 2003 for 158 chapters from Hirohiko Araki as serialized in Weekly Shone Jump.

Plot Concept: In Florida, 2011, Jolyne Kuujou sits in a jail cell like her father Joutarou once did; yet this situation is not of her own choice. Framed for a crime she didn’t commit, she was manipulated into serving a longer sentence and now Jolyne is resigned to a dire fate as a prisoner of Green Dolphin Street Jail. Though all hope seems lost, a gift from Joutarou ends up awakening her latent abilities, manifesting into her Stand, Stone Free. Now armed with the power to change her fate, Jolyne sets out to find an escape from the stone ocean that holds her.

However, she soon discovers that her incarceration is merely a small part of a grand plot: one that not only takes aim at her family, but has additional far-reaching consequences. What’s more, the mastermind is lurking within the very same prison, and is under the protection of a lineup of menacing Stand users. Finding unlikely allies to help her cause, Jolyne sets a course to stop their plot, clear her name, and take back her life.
