Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan is definitely one of the biggest, if not the biggest, spin-off story that originated from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, with the story of the mangaka that first appeared in Diamond Is Unbreakable continuing to this day. Now, the next chapter of this series is set to arrive sooner than you might think, with the previous installment of "Drip Style Painting" seeing Kishibe Rohan hilariously breaking the fourth wall, addressing readers directly, and hinting of the horrors that are about to arise in his life.
Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan is unique in that it did not just receive an anime adaptation, but a live-action television series to boot, with this side-story following the mangaka that originally clashed with Josuke Higashikata more often than not pitting Rohan against supernatural terrors rather than your typical Stand users. Before "Drip Painting Style" arrived, we were witness to a wild story wherein the wielder of Heaven's Door was inadvertently trapped in a time loop thanks to a cursed mirror below a supernatural tree. While new episodes of the spin-off anime have yet to be announced, the popularity of the franchise certainly lends credence to the idea of these tales eventually hitting the small screen.
The next chapter of Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan is set to arrive sooner than you might think, with it arriving in Ultra Jump on May 19th, giving us the second part of "Drip Painting Style" which saw Rohan breaking the fourth wall and chatting about discussions that he had on climate change and other topics.
As it stands, Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan is only one of the spin-off series that takes place within the world of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, with Crazy Diamond's Demonic Heartbreak currently on its fifth chapter and focusing on the story of Josuke Higashikata making a comeback as he finds himself partnering with the villain, Hol Horse. With this year also seeing one-shot stories bringing back the likes of Iggy, Lisa Lisa, and Jolyne Cujoh, it's clear that there is quite a demand for more stories from the universe of the Joestars.
