“The animated adaptation of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure turns 10 this year. Are also 35 years of writing and drawing manga. The protagonists of the first parts have seen each other again in the following ones, all descending from the same family and from a single lineage. The first protagonist, the hero of the first part (Jonathan) had a muscular physique, and gradually, up to the fifth part with Giorno, we saw a thinner man, more realistic and close to a real model. “
Araki then went on to talk about Jolyne’s adventure specifically, and then greeted the fa: “in the sixth part, of course, the hero is a young woman. I wanted her to be strong. Now, looking back on the years gone by, the heroes, and the world in which I drew them, kept changing. It could be one of the strong points of the series, or at least I see it that way. I hope people will continue to see, read, and follow Jojo. Last but not least, I wish everyone the best. ”
