JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Animator Celebrates Anime's Return With Sketch

A dozen new episodes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean have arrived on Netflix, with the journey of Jolyne Cujoh now seeing Stand users perfect "assassination fen shui", bringing invisible zombies back from the grave, and focusing on a mysterious green child. To help in promoting the latest batch of episodes, an animator for the franchise has gathered the heroes and villains of part six of the anime adaptation which mostly focuses on the Stand battles taking place within Green Dolphin Street Prison.

Kohei Ashiya is an animator at David Production who has been with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's anime adaptation since the beginning, spending ten years when it comes to working on the story of the Joestars that has crossed generations. Working as an animation director for the likes of Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency, Stardust Crusader, Diamond Is Unbreakable, Golden Wind, and even the spin-off series, Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan, the animator is knowledgeable in the world of Stands that formed thanks to creator Hirohiko Araki. With his latest sketch, it's clear that Ashiya still has a firm grasp on the art style of the strange series that has become a fan favorite within the anime community.

The JoJo animator took to their Official Twitter Account to share the colorful new sketch of the allies and enemies of Jolyne Cujoh in honor of Stone Ocean's major comeback, as a dozen new episodes arrived on Netflix earlier today, September 1st:

As it stands, Stone Ocean has yet to reveal when, or in fact if, a third part of the anime series is in the works, though the Blu-Ray set for the season spilled the beans that the third batch of episodes will be included in its physical release. With the set slated to arrive in Japan next March, it wouldn't be a surprise if we saw these installments arrive on Netflix either later in 2022 or early in 2023. Needless to say, to cover all the events that took place in Stone Ocean, more episodes will need to be produced to bring the story of Jolyne Cujoh to a close.
