Make no mistake: ‘Stone Ocean’ is season 5 of the anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, which adapts the sixth part of the source manga. So we could call it “season 6” but it doesn’t matter: here’s what you need to know about the sequel to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure on Netflix!

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 5 part 2 – Stone Ocean: release date and broadcast

  • Release date part 2 : December 22, 2022

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Anime Sequel Official Release Date Set as of December 21, 2022, exactly one year after the release of part 1 of the Stone Ocean arch.

It was a leak of Netflix programs that revealed the date, while the animation studio David Production did not react but only announced the window of “end of 2022“.

For this sequel, the Japanese anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure will continue the adaptation of part 6 of the manga. This one, named after part 5 ‘Stone Ocean’, will aim to continue the storyline which sees Jolyne Cujoh being imprisoned by a follower of Dio in order to kill her.

The original manga (released in France and Japan), from which this season 5 part 2 will be inspired, is of course that of Hirohiko Araki. In the manga, the ‘Stone Ocean’ arc covers part 5 and 6. In the anime series, therefore, it will only be season 5 via 2 parts (but theoretically we could speak of a season 6, in order to stick to the rhythm of the manga).

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean – PART 2: Sequel synopsis, story and screenplay

The manga -and anime- JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure does not follow a single story. Rather, the story of a family and its characters is told across multiple eras, each with its Jojo. Written and illustrated by mangaka Hirohiko Arakithe stories of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure are currently based in 2011.

In the first part of season 5, we follow Jolyne Cujoh who is sent to prison after a bogus murder charge. Condemned to a heavy sentence, Jolyne receives a pendant which gives her powers via her stand.

The second half of season 5 ‘Stone Ocean’ will pick up where events left offi.e. in the prison yard after Dio Brando’s death, as Jolyne managed to acquire her father Jotaro Kujo’s Memory Disk. The last episode’s post-credit scene introduced Sports Maxx.

In the manga, the sequel to JoJo’s Bizzarre Adventure unfolds (and beware, we’re going to spoiler), events escalate with Jolyne’s death, then her resuscitation by Jotaro’s Stand Star Platinum. The final battle begins to set in as Pucci evolves his Stand, becoming ultra-powerful and giving him time-controlling abilities. The last chapters are full of action and illustrate a very detailed conclusion, hope the anime follows suit!
