Most are anticipating the release of a preview for the upcoming Part 5: Vento Aureo, whereas others are looking towards the realm of live-action cinema to scratch their itch. Luckily famed director Takashi Miike and crew have exactly what what we need to drive away any withdrawal symptoms that come with a lack of JJBA content. Across the new years celebrations the very first visual for the upcoming live-action JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure film, which will be focussing solely on Part 4: Diamond Is Unbreakable, was released online. This image shows lead actor Kento Yamazaki in full costume as the story’s protagonist Josuke Higashikata.

RUMOUR: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders To Be Adapted Into A Live-Action Film

Let’s take a trip back in time, just for a moment, to the year 2012: Women-centric blog Cyzo Daily News reported on a rumour that saw Japanese Idol, Singer, Actor, and all around good looking guy Jun Matsumoto up for the role of Jotaro Kujo in the then-unconfirmed live-action film adaptation of Hirohiko Araki’s hit Manga series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. This rumour didn’t necessarily gain any traction, with most JJBA-fans brushing it off as nothing more than how it was marketed; a rumour. Now let’s jump back to present day; it’s the year 2016, and this story revolving around the possible live-action Stardust Crusaders film has, once again, resurfaced. This time, much like the last, another actor has been highlighted as the possible number one candidate to take on the role of story crutch Jotaro Kujo, his name is Kento Yamazaki and, much like his predecessor, he is also known for being incredibly handsome…he’s also a pretty good actor, let’s not forget that. For the second time, this “news” has first been reported on Cyzo …

Re-Release Of Savage Garden Singles Collection To Feature Diamond Is Unbreakable Cover

The latest season of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Anime adaptation, Diamond Is Unbreakable, is only a few episodes in at this point in time, but it has already become one of the most loved series’ of not only this season but of the year so far. With stunning visuals and an incredible storyline, it’s hard not to love Diamond Is Unbreakable, but out of everything it was the series’ theme song that shocked audiences the most. Set to a series of slow-paced visuals that have now proven to be the natural successor to the once-royal “Guile’s Theme Goes With Everything” meme, thanks to countless edits that replace the ending theme with any number of wacky and wonderful songs from the era, the ending track for the series is a song by Australia’s own Savage Garden who, at the time, were just as popular in Japan, if not moreso! Many people’s love for the 1996 track “I Want You“, as well as their love for Savage Garden as a whole, has recently been rekindled thanks to that …

First Thoughts: “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable” – Shine On, You Crazy Diamond!

Here we go, the part we’ve all been waiting for! DIO is dead, the Tarrot Cards have been ripped to shreds, Old Man Joseph is off having affairs, and Jotaro Kujo is now a Marine Biologist. Everything you thought was insane about the previous installments of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure can be tossed out the proverbial window, because what’s coming up is crazier than anything we’ve ever seen before. Things are changing, baby! No longer will Stands be named after Tarrot Cards, so if you thought Tower Of Grey was too odd of a name, then you better prepare yourself for the incredibly original Red Hot Chilli Pepper; a name only one letter away from a copyright lawsuit. We’re no longer following the Juvenile Delinquent Jotaro Kujo, instead this part will focus on a character the likes of which we’ve never seen before; a Juvenile Delinquent…with a heart of gold. This new Anime will not feature a mangey mutt, nor a senile old man, but instead it will play host to some of the more interesting characters you’ve ever …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven – Jonathan Joestar Character Battle Trailer Released

You know that there’s another JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure game coming out right? Yeah, I thought so. Anyone who’s anyone know’s that! It’s called JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven and it’s a follow up to the previously released PlayStation 3 fighting game All-Star Battle. Well it looks as though Bandai Namco Entertainment think that we’ve all forgotten about the characters that appeared in All-Star Battle and are taking this chance to re-introduce us with a series of introduction videos that should highlight some of the new additions to the game’s roster while also taking a look back at some of the old favorites. The very first in this, possible, series of fifty videos (seeing as there are fifty playable characters in the upcoming game) focuses entirely on the very first notable Joestar; Jonathan. Having had to train to defeat his step-brother Dio Brando who, in true Dio fashion, turned himself into a powerful Vampire, Jonathan trained in the art of the Ripple; an ability that uses the power of Solar Energy to vanquish foes, especially …

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part Four: Diamond Is Unbreakable Anime Green-Lit

We all knew this was coming, because it was teased at the very end of the Stardust Crusaders Anime season, but it still gives a nice warm feeling just knowing that Part Four of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Manga series, Diamond Is Unbreakable, is confirmed for an Anime adaptation sometime in the near future. Over in Japan, Tokyo to be specific, on the Saturday that has just passed, an event was held titled “The Last Crusaders” which, as you may think, had nothing to do with the Indiana Jones movie of similar name. No, it was a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure event that basically celebrated all things Stardust Crusaders. While many exciting things happened over the span of the event’s full day, the most exciting is absolutely that of the Diamond Is Unbreakable Anime adaptation confirmation which was delivered to the audience, and now us living everywhere BUT Japan, with a teaser trailer that shows absolutely nothing of the upcoming Anime but has worked to excited people from all walks of life living all across the world. …
