If you have been in a fog since JoJo's Bizarre Adventure went off air, you should know you are not alone. The hugely popular anime hit an all-time popularity high with the release of Golden Wind, and its finale left many wandering around. Thankfully, JoJo prepared for such fallout, and the crew behind the TV series is coming back with some goodies.
Not long ago, it was announced JoJo would be getting some new OVA releases. The anime would add episodes to its Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan series, giving the beloved character a bigger spotlight than ever before. Now, some new stills have gone live for one of the new OVAs, and fans are ready to pick apart its design changes.
As you can see below, the new stills come from Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan: The Run. The episode is one of two slated to debut this year, and it will go live in an upcoming Blu-ray volume. The episode will follow Rohan on yet another adventure, and these still give a peek at what's up.
Clearly, it turns out part of the OVA will see Rohan doing his usual workout. One of the stills shows the hero running hard on a treadmill, and he's racing against a gray-haired hero who is seriously buffed out.
If you want to be one of the first people to see this OVA, then you will need to head to Japan ASAP. The OVA will be shown for the first time at a tour event on December 8. The tour will continue through March, so international fans are hoping the JoJo OVAs will be streamed online long before the new year rolls around.
