WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE THREAD ! WHAT IS JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE? JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump and the current story arc, JoJolion, started in 2011. An anime has been made by the production studio, David Productions, and is what the series is most well known for outside of Japan. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure tells the story of the Joestar family, a family whose various members discover they are destined to take down supernatural foes using unique powers that they possess. The manga is split up into 8 unique parts, each following the story of one member of the Joestar family, who inevitably has a name that can be abbreviated to the titular "JoJo".
