UPDATE! We can confirm that the series will be streaming on Crunchyroll for the Autumn 2018 season line-up in North America, South America, Europe, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Africa. The airing date in Japan is set for 5th October. It will also be streaming on other platforms in Japan like Hulu and Netflix.
It’s been a long while since we last received a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime series with Diamond is Unbreakable back in 2016. Recently a special JoJo press conference at the National Art Center in Tokyo happened on 21st June 2018 (JP time) and the author himself Hirohiko Araki causally revealed that Golden Wind, the fifth part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure story, will officially receive an anime adaptation. In fact just around the same time staff credits and some anime visuals have appeared on JP site Natalie!
That’s right, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind is officially happening and it will begin broadcast starting this Autumn 2018 season! David Production who worked on the previous JoJo anime series & OVAs will return to adapt this upcoming anime. Other staff members confirmed include Yasuhiro Kimura & Hideya Takahashi as the directors, Takahiro Kishida for character designs, Yugo Kanno for music composition, Yasuko Kobayashi for series composition, and Shunichi Ishimoto as chief animation director.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind (GioGio no Kimyou na Bouken: Ougon no Kaze) began serialisation on Weekly Shonen Jump from 20th November 1995 to 5th April 1999, after Diamond is Unbreakable had finished and before Stone Ocean. The manga series is set in Italy and follows a different JoJo protagonist called Giorno Giovanna. The manga series has yet to receive an official English release so this anime adaptation is a great opportunity for fans to finally check out this instalment in the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure franchise.
You can watch the previous JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime from David Productions over on Crunchyroll in Japanese audio with English subtitles.
