JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a strange anime franchise, focusing on wild Stands and the battles that involve the family known as the Joestars. Now, in a recent interview with Ultra Jump, the creator of the bizarre series, Hirohiko Araki, shared what he loves to do online and how he spends his time when he isn't drawing the various members of his popular anime world. Needless to say, it's about as strange as you would expect from the mangaka responsible for the Joestars.
On the anime front, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is set to make a comeback this fall on Netflix, with the next batch of episodes of the Stone Ocean set to hit the streaming service. When last we left Jolyne Cujoh, the daughter of Jotaro of Stardust Crusader fame, she was attempting to save her father from a plan put into motion from beyond the grave by Dio Brando. With the deceased vampire having an ally in the priest of the Green Dolphin Street Penitentiary, aka Pucci, Jotaro's memories and Stand abilities have been stolen, causing Jolyne to not just try to save him, but also clear her name so she can escape her current imprisonment.
In the latest issue of Ultra Jump, a manga publication that spun from Shueisha and Weekly Shonen Jump, Araki was asked what he likes to watch on the internet and his answer was as strange and hilarious as the adventures of the Joestars that have been running since the 1980s:
"Online videos. The only ones that I'll ever watch are of people falling down. Why can't there be more of them, I wonder?"
Details regarding the ninth part of the franchise, JoJo Lands, are quite sparse at the moment, with Araki not revealing who the star of this next chapter in the lives of the Joestars will be, when it will take place, or when it is set to arrive. Regardless, considering how wild each of the installments have been in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, it will definitely be a wild ride for anime fans.
