As a manga that has been running for many years now, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure can be considered a classic series. There are still parts of the manga that haven't been adapted into an anime, so while waiting, fans can always read the manga to catch up with the story.

Also, there are character designs in the anime that are not consistent with the manga, which might ruin their purpose in the story.

The manga also has better pacing, considering that it is the original medium.
