Hirohiko Araki is a big fan of Western music, and many of the characters and Stands in the show are named after musicians and songs.

The first three Jojos - Jonathan Joestar, Joseph Joestar and Jotaro Kujo - are tall dark-haired muscular men. Their design is based on Kenshiro, the protagonist from Hokuto no Ken (1984).

Joseph Joestar often speaks in English in small parts, saying things like "Oh no!" And "Oh my God!". Other characters occasionally also speak English, but it's mostly Joseph

Hirohiko Araki chose Egypt as Dio's modern-era base because he had once gone there on a trip and thought the people there looked threatening and fearsome. The location is a tribute to Mitsuteru Yokoyama's story "Babel II", which was set in the desert.

The JoJo family symbol is a heart, as seen in the opening credits of the "Diamond is Unbreakable" saga. Jotaro and Josuke wear heart decorations in their clothing in "Diamond is Unbreakable", and so does Dio Brando in "Stardust Crusaders" (in keeping with him stealing from the Joestars). The heart resembles courage and nobility, as well as frailty, qualities the Joestar family displays. It also represents the source of their power; Hamon (ripples of energy) and their later-evolved Stands come from blood, and the heart is what keeps blood pumping through the body.

Hirohiko Araki came up with Stands as a way to explain psychic powers: he didn't believe someone could move an object with their mind, but he could believe that someone created something with their mind that could move an object.

Dio Brando has the word "Muda" as his war cry. "Muda" is Japanese for "useless."

The "Jojo" in the title refers to each generation's protagonist having their name abbreviated to form Jo-Jo: Jonathan Joestar, Joseph Joestar, Jotaro Kujo, Josuke Higashikata, Shizuka Joestar, and Giorno Giovanna.

("Higashikata" and "Shizuka" can be rewritten as "Jo" in Japanese script, while Giorno's name homages his Italian background and his fusion of both Joestar and Brando blood).

The series uses several popular English songs licensed from their original recordings:

  • "Phantom Blood" and "Battle Tendency" - "Roundabout" (by Yes)
  • "Stardust Crusaders" - "Walk Like An Egyptian" (by The Bangles) and "Last Train Home" (by The Pat Metheny Group)
  • "Diamond is Unbreakable" - "I Want You" (by Savage Garden)
  • "Golden Wind" - "Freek'n You'" (by Jodeci).

In the "Stardust Crusaders" saga, most of the Stands are named after Tarot cards and Egyptian gods.

The series released on the 25th anniversary of the "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure" manga comic.

Jonathan Joestar's name was inspired by Jonathan's, a Japanese restaurant which serves western style food.

Many names of characters and Stands have to be altered in the English subtitles and dubs of the anime and games for copyright reasons. Some examples are: -Wham!/Wamu -ACDC/Esidisi -Cars/Kars -Steely Dan/Dan of Steel -Crazy Diamond/Shining Diamond (Pink Floyd) -Vanilla Ice/Cool Ice -Echoes/Reverb (Pink Floyd) -Killer Queen/Deadly Queen (Queen)

The major Stands seen in the saga represent an aspect of their user:

  • Jotaro Kujo's Stand Star Platinum has intense power and speed, reflecting Jotaro's fighting-ready attitude.
  • Josuke Higashikata's Stand Crazy Diamond has the ability to restore things, which Jotaro notes as representing his noble and kind nature. (both Star Diamond and Star Platinum work through rapid punches, which comes from the family ancestor Jonathan Joestar and his Sunlight Yellow Overdrive attack)
  • Joseph Joestar's Stand Hermit Purple takes the forms of ropes (notably it's the only one to not have a humanoid form). He had previously used rope tricks in his youth to outsmart his opponents.
  • Dio Brando's Stand the World reflects his godlike ambition, and is colored gold (a favourite color of his).
  • Giorno Giovanna's Stand Gold Experience reflects his heritage of being from both Joestar and Brando families (it's gold, and it has the ability to create life and deflect attacks).
  • Okuyasu Nijimura's Stand the Hand has blinkers on it, representing Okuyasu's stupidity.
  • Yoshikage Kira's Stands Killer Queen and Sheer Heart Attack are used to kill, and respectively leave no evidence and keep Kira away from the actual death occurring. He later gets a new Stand, Bites the Dust, which enables him to undo mistakes by rewinding time.
  • Rohan Kishibe's Stand Heaven's Door reflects his artist job - it works through making drawings, and enables him to control people like his art.

User reviews



Don't know why this anime was split into parts 1 and 2. I just watched episodes 1-26, so I'm going to review it as one show.

It starts with a rich family (the Joestars) adopting a poor boy named Dio. Dio is the same age as the Joestar's son, Jonathan, and they become fierce rivals at everything trying to get the attention of Jonathan's father. Initially, Dio is better at everything, but as they grow up, Jonathan catches up to Dio, making him bitter and twisted. One day, he finds a stone mask, that when attached to his face, transforms him into an evil vampire...

The shows stretches over 3 generations of Joestars and each son is nicknamed Jojo. They spend their lives fighting vampires and other, stronger immortals.

What I really liked about this show was the humour. The characters were all great and the animation and action scenes were awesome, but the humour turned what could have been a dark, horror type story into something really fun. Normally, I'd prefer them to have left out the humour and gone down the dark path, but in this case, it really works well. Definitely worth a watch!


This show is one of the most influential series to come out of japan next to dragonball and fist of the north star. It is the reason we have games like persona or great fighting game characters like guile or juri. Jojo's bizarre adventure has influenced popular anime like One piece, Hunter x Hunter, Yu Yu hakusho, and Shaman king. One of the most unique things about it is its a different story with a different protagonist each time while still having a lore and continuity. This makes it impossible to judge based on a single or even multiple seasons the best parts are 7,8,2, and 4. one of the coolest things about JoJo is everyone who's a fan likes different parts one person could love part 5 and hate part 6 while another person could have the opposite opinion everybody loves part 7 though. all in all there's no other anime like this one it actually tends to appeal more to non anime fans due to its western feel.


JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has been a ride for me. I got into it, because of it's massive Impact on the anime community as a whole and how it bends the rules of traditional anime and makes me laugh and sob at the drop of a checkered hat. Stories in traditional "shonen" or "for boys" anime fall into obvious tropes that JoJo does not. Normal anime will follow a main character (mostly male) trying to solve a problem through fights. JoJo follows that guideline with some major improvements. When following one main character you run into the problem of the story becoming boring or the main character becoming so overpower that they seem not likable because they run out of the faults that make them human. JoJo switches off the baton of the main focus of the story with it not being about one Joestar, but a family of Joestars. Each Joestar has one problem to solve and a loads of amazing support characters that make this a lovable and amazing series pretty much perfect for me. that being said, I know this show is far from perfect with it's many plot holes and unfinished stories, and lets not talk about the way far away things look in the anime, but in my eyes this story of a family overcoming trials and tribulations is just enough for me to call it my favorite piece of fiction.


Holy I can't express how much I love this it's a masterpiece it's memes it's sound effects the dramatic letters and the fact that there's like 3 more parts for this series is very anticipating I recommend that you watch this anime it's very very good

Part 1 was not great. It was still a good show all in all, and very entertaining. It only picks up from part 1, as part 2 is simply amazing. Part 3 is rough around the edges and stands are not my favourite concept but part 4 managed to make them amazing. They were more creative and had much more interesting stands. I love this series and eagerly await the part 5 anime, and is without a doubt my favourite anime of all time.


This show is a roller coaster of emotions. I laughed with it, felt anger with it and even cried with it. The fight scenes are always awesome and even sometimes hilarious. Who would've thought you could defeat your foe with a simple string? Can't get enough of JoJo. It's one adventure that is beyond bizarre.


This anime certainly lives up to the bizarreness of its title.So the show from Part 1 to 3revolves around multiple generations of a family called the Joestars fighting various supernatural threats.Firstly the art is worthy of praise a semi realistic semi exaggerated style that's rarely seen in anime.The animation is quite standard up to part two but begins flowing with energy from part three.The story is quite straightforward about strong guys fighting monsters.This predictability certainly weighs down part 1 but that contains a character arc and an unexpected ending to push it above most Shounen.Part 2 onwards the techniques and strategy used in a fight are so creative and bizarre you are guaranteed to be entertained.The humour always hits well which is rare for a Shounen and the characters reactions are a joy to watch.The characters themselves are never bad throughout the series but it's only after Part 1 where they truly shine.A 9/10 in my opinion for a good but not great start but an otherwise fantastic series.Definitely check it out.


It is one of the most bizarre anime I've ever watched. It has a unique cast a unique character design and each part has a unique story that somehow connects to the previous one in some way. Its unpredictable and it always lets you wondering what's gonna happen next. It is honestly SO GOOD! There's just no words to describe it. There's no surprise why there's such a huge online following for this anime.


I have to hand it to this show: for all of it's plotholes, shallowness, and predictability, it completely makes up for it's flaws and more with it's outstanding art style, over-the-top energy, creative world, and memorable character designs. Almost every character has a special quality that makes them them and has an outstanding design that would make them STAND out in a crowd. None of even the minor characters have a generic design, and it adds to the vibrancy and uniqueness of the world.

If you don't mind a fair amount of exaggerated violence, check this show out from Part 1 to the upcoming Part 5 and beyond. Wether you're an anime fan or a simple showgoer, this animated series is too unique to pass by.


The English dub is sooo horrible. It's just a bunch of people sounding like they got constipation. There's no real feeling in these characters in english. Accept for accents. You'll get tired of the grunts and constipation sounds trying to imitate the dark sounds and tones of the japanese. It's just cheesy asf.

I couldn't make it passed the 8th episode in English dub.


I watched this show and I know its trash but heres the thing. I couldn't put it down. Then I told my buddies the next day and they made fun of me, mocked me, kicked me, and threw me in the trash can. I knew I was a loser. I really did. Sike! Yhis is actuallu the best show ever and all my friends and i watch it and quote it all the time. Did I mention my friends were hamsters? They count as friends too right? I think they really like it. Their names are after people in the show. My stand turned all my friends into hamsters, I acquired this stand after I was shot with an arrow. I am also delusional which is why I wrote such bad things in the beginning of this review. I know deep down in my heart this was a mistake. I have a disorder now that I've gotten so deep into the show. My doctor says to quit. But all I can do at this point is to warn each of you. IT IS VERY OK, TRUST.

Part 1 and 2:

Jojo's bizarre adventure is a show that probably every anime fan has heard of. It is, in my opinion, one of the most popular shows of all time. Cause even if you haven't watched it, you know the memes. Even if you haven't heard of the show completely, the "to be continued" meme will crawl into your life anyway. So it wasn't surprising that I was going to watch the show eventually. And to be honest, I was a little disappointed. Here's why:

My biggest problem with the show is the pacing. Many episodes can feel so long, because of the fight scenes. The characters always have to stop and explain what to do or stop to warn the enemy that they will do something. I have two problems with this. First, why would they do this? Why do they expect the enemy to also stop what they're doing, to listen to what the protagonist has "planned all along". It also ruins the pacing, as I said before. The episode would probably be half as long if they didn't show us a bunch of exposition at us. You can give information without text, you know that right. "Show, don't tell" is important, but wasn't considered here.

And sadly, that was the thing that "ruined" the show (I still liked it). It was harder to enjoy the show when the episodes were so boring. Cause there were many things about the show that was very unique. The fight scenes didn't consist of only punches and kicks. There was an actual strategy, which is very unique in these kinds of shows. Without the exposition, the fight scenes would have been great! I was also very immersed in the story and wanted to know what was going to happen. Especially in the multi-episode fights, where I needed to know who was going to win. If it I wasn't immersed enough, I wouldn't have felt the same. And lastly, I really liked the style that the show went with. The weird colors and patterns were so unique and cool to look at. I wouldn't say that the visuals were fantastic, but were unique and interesting to look at.

So I'm sorry all of you Jojo fans. I still liked it, just not enough I guess...

Strong 7/10


I like it but I think I just don't get it as much as other people. A lot of the time it feels like fight scenes loosely chained together by a mediocre story.


I can't believe some of these reviews. Maybe it is just the dubbed versions, but the writing and the acting is so over-the-top. They make the smallest scene into a climactic event with overpowering music and emotions that shouldn't be within a mile of the scene. One of the worst anime shows I've watched int eh past 20 years. Wow!
