JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Artist Rings In The Holidays With New Stone Ocean Art

Dec 25, 2021

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has had a big year in 2021, with the anime adaptation of the sixth part of the franchise, Stone Ocean, hitting Netflix and the series receiving not one, but two new stories in its manga with spin-off stories diving back into the world of Jolyne Cujoh and Josuke Higashikata. Now, an official artist on the anime, Kohei Ashiya, has shared new art that sees Jolyne and her friends that she made during her time in Green Dolphin Street Prison get into the holiday spirit as the anime continues on Netflix.

David Production, the animation studio responsible for the previous five parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, returned to cover the story of the daughter of Jotaro Kujo, the protagonist of Stardust Crusaders who also appeared in Diamond Is Unbreakable and Golden Wind. With the first twelve episodes currently available on Netflix, fans are waiting on word for when fans of Stands and Joestars can expect more installments to arrive in the future. Though the manga for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure recently finished the eighth part of this series that ran for over a decade, JoJolion, creator Hirohiko Araki has already confirmed that the series will return for a ninth part in the tentatively titled JoJo Lands. 

Kohei Ashiya shared the new artwork that sees Jolyne and her allies donning holiday apparel to help get into the spirit of the season, following Stone Ocean's anime adaptation's arrival on Netflix, which has become one of the most popular anime acquisitions by the streaming service in recent memory:

The first episodes of Stone Ocean not only introduced us to Jolyne and her plight, but it also set the stage for how the daughter of Jotaro was brought into the family business, with a plan put into action by Dio Brando from beyond the grave. With Dio's ally Pucci, the priest of Green Dolphin Street Penitentiary and the wielder of the Stand known as Whitesnake, taking Jotaro off the board, Jolyne must now fight not just for her own life, but also for the life of her father whose memories and Star Platinum have been stolen.
