JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has revealed just how much Jotaro Kujo's Star Platinum Stand has changed from its original incarnation to its newest anime look debuting in the next season, Stone Ocean. The anime adaptation for the franchise has finally returned to take on the sixth part of Hirohiko Araki's original manga series, and fans are excited to see where the saga between DIO and the Joestars goes next. This continues with the newest main character, Jolyne, who is actually the estranged daughter of the Stardust Crusaders main protagonist, Jotaro Kujo.
That means we'll be once again seeing a different take on Jotaro with this next entry, and with a new Jotaro comes a whole different design scheme (reflecting how Araki's art had evolved from part to part of the main manga series), and a whole new design for his Stand as well. The series recently released a close look at main of the new Stands making their debut in this next iteration, and @GrandGuerilla on Twitter has thankfully gathered Star Platinum's three different anime designs to compare just how much the Stand has changed between Stardust Crusaders and Stone Ocean. Check it out below:
