JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has wowed millions with its latest season, but the show isn’t willing to shotgun its episodes in the name of popularity. After all, it seems the anime is about to embark on a brief delay, so Stand lovers better listen up.
Recently, the official Twitter page for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure confirmed season five will delay its next episode. Rather than airing on January 4, episode 14 of Golden Wind will be released on January 11.
In order to accommodate the schedule, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure will be airing a different treat for fans on January 4. A special recap episode will air, bringing fans up to speed for what is awaiting them the next week when the show returns in earnest.

At this time, no reason has been given from the delay, but netizens have been receptive to the news. David Productions has made many believers with its high-quality work on Golden Wind so far, leaving fans eager to trust in its production decisions. So, it seems like audiences are fine with “The Florence-Bound Express Train’ taking a bit longer to reach the station than expected.
