JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a world where your memories are stored on a compact disc that can be ejected from your body at any time. It’s a world where your friend can duplicate objects with stickers and make the copies explode at will. It’s a world where you can have your liver punched out and still survive long enough to beat up the person who took it from you. It’s a world that only makes the barest of sense. And ain’t it grand?

Netflix became the exclusive home of the JoJo anime with the introduction of Stone Ocean late last year. The anime takes place in 2011 and follows Jolyne Kujo, the first female JoJo and daughter of Jotaro Joestar. After getting into a car accident, Jolyne is falsely accused of murder and sentenced to 15 years in a maximum security prison.

Typical JoJo antics follow. Jolyne discovers she can “unravel” her body in the form of a blue thread, and use that thread to manipulate the environment. Then she finds out she can manifest a monster/ghost/robot/whatever called a Stand to fight for her, as all JoJo characters from Part 3 and beyond can do. Eventually, her absent father Jotaro visits her and fills in the rest, telling her of the ancient feud between her family and the followers of Dio.

Toward the end of Stone Ocean Part 1, Jotaro was killed, but not really (as Princess Bride put it, there’s dead and then there’s partially dead). If Jolyne can retrieve both CDs that were ejected from him, Jotaro will be revived. Part 1 wrapped up on that cliffhanger, and we’ll still have to wait a while for the resolution…Netflix revealed the release window today, and Part 2 doesn’t hit until the fall.

The English voice cast for Stone Ocean includes Kira Buckland as Jolyne Cujoh, Abby Trott as Foo Fighters, Jessica DiCissco as Ermes Costello, Cindy Robinson, as Emporio Alnino, Sam Riegal as Weather Report, Matthew Mercer as Jotaro and Aleks Le as Narsico Anasui. The Japanese cast includes Ai Fairouz as Jolyne, Mariya Ise as Foo Fighters, Mutsumi Tamura as Ermes Costello, Atsumi Tanezaki as Emporio Alniño, Yuichiro Umehara as Weather Report, Daisuke Ono as Jotaro and Daisuke Namikawa as Narciso Anasui.

Here’s a brief flash of images from Part 2 of JoJo Stone Ocean. Look for the rest of it on Netflix in about six months…
