Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is a manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. The manga originally began in 1987! It was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump till 2004, with the end of Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure Part 6: Stone Ocean. The manga then moved to Ultra Jump for Part 7: Steel Ball Run and Part 8: Jojolion. The latter recently came to an end.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure begins in 19th century Britain with Jonathan Joetar and his adoptive step-brother Dio. Naturally, Dio turns out to be evil and steals the mysterious stone mask of the Joestar family that turns him into a kind of immortal vampire. The generations of Jojos that come after him are all tied together by the Joestar legacy of fighting against Dio or some kind of evil and of course, the Joestar birthmark – The Star.
The Seasons of Jojos Bizarre adventures in order are Phantom Blood (Jonathan Joestar), Battle Tendency (Joseph Josetar), Stardust Crusaders (Jotaro Kujo), Diamond is Unbreakable (Josuke Higashikata), Golden Wind (Giorno Giovanna), Stone Ocean (Joelyn Kujo), Steel Ball Run (Johnny Joestar) and finally Jojolion (Higashikata Josuke).
