JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has been running in manga form since 1986, but until last year, only its third part (Stardust Crusaders) had ever been adapted into an accessible anime, and even that was split into two parts across seven years. A movie was released of the first part (Phantom Blood) in 2007, but a new anime adaptation began in late 2012 that fully adapted parts one and two (Battle Tendency). However, it stopped before beginning the third and most popular part, merely teasing a future animation with the above image. But now the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, which serialized the earlier parts of the manga, has announced that production has been green-lit for a new adaptation of Stardust Crusaders.

David Production, which animated the previous two parts, will be handling this chapter of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure as well. Naokatsu Tsuda and Kenichi Suzuki are returning as director and series director, while Yasuko Kobayashi is handling scripts. Meanwhile, Masahiko Komino is replacing Takako Shimizu as character designer, adapting mangaka Hirohiko Araki’s original designs.

It will be interesting to see if future parts of the manga are adapted after this one finishes, as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has already reached its eighth part.
