As Anime Expo experiences its final day of the year, all eyes were on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure this weekend thanks to its upcoming series. After it was announced Stone Ocean is in development, fans have been begging for an update on the series, and many thought it would come at this event. However, it seems Anime Expo didn't live up to the high expectations fans set for JoJo. Instead, a second event was announced in honor of Stone Ocean, and it will go live later this year.

While many were expecting a release date or new trailer for Part Six of the series, the final moments of Anime Expo's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure event pointed fans toward an upcoming event later this summer on August 8th, which might give us more hints at the future arrival of Stone Ocean. With the next installment of the anime series promising to follow the daughter of Jotaro Kujo as she navigates her way through a prison that is crawling with Enemy Stand Users seeking to get their hands on the daughter of the Stardust Crusader who helped introduce anime fans to the ethereal beings.

The Official JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Twitter Account shared details on the upcoming event which will be free to fans who have been dying to learn more about the upcoming adaptation of Stone Ocean since it was first announced as a part of the Inherited Soul Event:

Following Stone Ocean, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has two sagas in the forms of Steelball Run and JoJolion, taking place in an alternate reality from the world that we know while still managing to incorporate not only Stands themselves but a number of familiar elements from the series and alternate take on the Joestars and their enemies. With JoJolion getting ready to end in the pages of its manga, fans are left wondering if Hirohiko Araki has another story in-store or if this latest saga will be the final entry in the long-running anime franchise that has become insanely popular over the years.
