The fifth part of JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken has been greenlit, David Production returns as the anime’s studio with Yasuhiro Kimura and Hideya Takahashi in-charge for series direction, subtitled “Golden Wind,” the series will premiere this October.
This is great news for a JoJo fan like myself. I think this franchise is one of the best long running shonen series out there. It is weird, over the top, and amazing. I think everyone should give this series a go, if they are burned out from seasonal anime.
The original manga continues the story from the previous entries in Araki’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga, when Jotaro asks Koichi to travel to Naples to investigate a person known as Haruno Shiobana, whose real name is later revealed as Giorno Giovanna. The story then follows Giorno in his goal to rise to the top of the Passione mafia group and turn it into a band of honorable thieves.
This year is a really awesome year for with so many of my favorite series are being green-lit by the anime gods. Next all we need is for Netflix to pick up Spice & Wolf for season 3. I know that some people don’t like some of the series that Netflix has put out, but Crybaby, Voltron (Yes, Voltron is an anime. Come at me bro), Sword Gai and B:The Beginning all have potential. With Netflix deep pockets, unless the series did extremely horribly, we can always expect sequels down the line. I think that the best way forward for Netflix is to invest in existing IPs that were successful and that fans have been asking for sequels.
I never thought it was possible for the Summer and Fall seasons to be to top the Spring’s line-up of awesome shows. I can not wait to hear other great from the anime gods. Amen
