JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is no stranger to introducing spin-off stories that further examine the world of the Joestars, with Netflix recently diving into the spin-off character of Kishibe Rohan in the series known as Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan. The franchise created by Hirohiko Araki is once again diving into the world of spin-offs with a new story that is set to arrive later this month, Crazy Diamond’s Demonic Heartbreak, that will revisit the star of Diamond Is Unbreakable, Josuke, as he battles against villains from the past of the surreal anime franchise.
This upcoming spin-off while diving into new stories in the world of the Joestars, won’t be created by Hirohiko Araki himself but rather will be written by Kouhei Kadono, the author responsible for another JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure spin-off, Purple Haze Feedback, and drawn by Tasuku Karasuma, who is most recognized for the property, No Guns Life. To challenge Josuke in this spin-off manga series, the story will be bringing back antagonists from Stardust Crusaders in the Stand wielder Hol Horse and the killer eagle known as Pet Shop. This spin-off isn’t just important for revisiting Josuke, but also because it will return to the original universe that started it all, which hasn’t been present in Steelball Run and JoJolion respectively.
The upcoming issue of Ultra Jump that is slated to hit the newsstands in Japan shares a new look at the Crazy Diamond spin-off series, while also hinting at the new one-shot that is to come which will revisit Jolyne Cujoh, the protagonist of Stone Ocean which recently had its anime adaptation arrive on Netflix:
While Hirohiko Araki himself isn’t working on this new spin-off, the creator of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is planning to return to the series with the ninth part of its manga, which is tentatively titled JoJo Lands. While story details about the next installment of the surreal series are few and far between at this point, we’re sure that we’ll see plenty of Stand battles along with a new Joestar to help take readers through some wild new adventures.
