Fans of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure have learned to roll with the punches as Araki continues to invent wild new situations for his characters, and even more unique ways to get out of those situations. Fans have come to expect pretty much anything, but a hilarious gaff recently threw them for a loop when the latest episode of the series accidentally aired with subtitles from the also airing Fruits Basket reboot.
Rather than the deadly battle between Cioccolata and Secco and the Bucciarati Gang, fans hilariously saw how Cioccolata made references to the Soma Clan and even Fruits Basket's series protagonist Tohru Honda.

Thankfully, this hilarious error did not last for too long and the happy accident was quickly resolved by Crunchyroll. Fans didn't mind this little error, and some preferred the new level of "bizarreness" that this subtitle swap brought to the series. It seemed perfect for it. And as fans of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure are want to do, the accident quickly became the latest meme circulating among fans:
While Crunchyroll is still fixing the subtitles we’ve found some wrong ones that are quite fitting. pic.twitter.com/4ZSm38FhGP— JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (@jojoanimation) May 17, 2019
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind is the fifth and currently airing part of Hirohiko Araki's series, and follows Giorno Giovanna, the son of former series villain Dio Brando, as he joins the mafia group Passione in order to change and reform them into reputable thieves and crooks from the inside.
