Green Dolphin Street Prison, the current unexpected home of Jolyne Cujoh of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fame, is often referred to as the "Aquarium". With Jotaro Kujo holding a position as a marine biologist, Jolyne even has an ally that is aquatic based as Foo Fighters is a Stand made up entirely from a plankton colony. Now, an aquarium in Japan is taking the opportunity to bring Hirohiko Araki's anime franchise to life with a special event uniting the aquatic world with the Joestars.
Beginning on October 1st in Japan, the Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise Aquarium will be creating a unique experience for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans. Should you manage to hit this locale beginning next month and before November 30th, you will have the opportunity to become an agent of the Speedwagon Foundation and explore the aquatic life experience to save Jolyne and her friends from Green Dolphin Street Prison. The event will also see a marine animal show that will use props from the anime franchise, along with new merchandise from the world created by Hirohiko Araki. With the prison being referred to as "The Aquarium", this is quite the tongue-in-cheek joke that proves how far Japan is willing to go to boost their anime series.
The Yokohama Hakkejima Sea Paradise shared a new image in promoting the upcoming adventure that will see the Stone Ocean arriving in a brand new way for fans in Japan, though it seems doubtful that this exhibit will be making its way to North America unless an aquarium in the states wants to dive into the world of Stands:
With the Stone Ocean anime adaptation nearing its end, David Production and Netflix have been tight-lipped when it comes to the prospect of continuing their partnership to adapt future JoJo stories, and trust us when we say that there is plenty left to adapt. Following Jolyne's story, the franchise takes a major detour by exploring the worlds of Steelball Run and JoJolion, both of which take place in an alternate reality far different from the one we've come to know in the past.
Would you love to see this new unique partnership make its way to the West? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Joestars.
