The Stone Ocean has finally rolled in, dropping the latest episodes of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure on the streaming service Netflix, and the adventure of Jolye Cujoh and the other Stand wielders of the series are already topping the charts on the platform. With Netflix going all-in when it comes to both anime, and live-action anime adaptations, it should be no surprise that the story of the prisoners of the Green Dolphin Street Prison has risen the ranks in both Japan and North America, proving that the popularity of the Hirohiko Araki series is continuing to grow.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean follows the story of Jolyne Cujoh, the daughter of Jotaro Kujo, the protagonist of the third part of the franchise, Stardust Crusaders. Framed for a crime she didn’t commit, the wielder of the Stand known as Stone Free has been sentenced to fifteen years in a maximum-security prison and must now be a part of the “family business,” battling demons of the Joestars’ past while encountering strange new Stands unlike anything the series has introduced over the years. With the series arriving on Netflix on December 1st, the anime from David Production certainly left its mark on the streaming service.
The Official Twitter Account for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure shared the major news that Stone Ocean was, previously, the number one streamed series on Netflix in Japan and had entered the top ten when it came to movies and television shows on Netflix in North America, proving that there are definitely plenty of anime fans excited to join Jolyne Cujoh in her new adventures:

While the first twelve episodes of Stone Ocean are available to stream on Netflix, there are more on the way, though the streaming service has yet to reveal when we can expect more installments to land. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is planning a big month for December, not only with Stone Ocean, but with the arrival of a new spin-off manga series that is set to arrive before year’s end, as well as a one-shot story that will revisit Jolyne Cujoh and Stone Free.
Have you already binged the first twelve episodes of Stone Ocean? When do you think we’ll see more episodes land on Netflix? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Joestars.
