The highly anticipated next part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is here, along with the revelation of the protagonist’s name and the setting of The JOJOLands.

After it was revealed last year, JoJo fans from all over the world have been anticipating the next installment of Hirohiko Araki’s iconic manga series.

While fans have endured the longest wait ever between parts, it seems to have been worth it, as many are loving the first chapter that was finally released this week.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has been ongoing since the 80s, and it remains to be one of Jump’s most popular titles. Of course, its longevity is thanks to its structure.

Unlike long-running manga like One Piece, JoJo is divided into different parts, each with a new protagonist.

Beginning in Part 7, the series has also shifted to a monthly release schedule.

The gap between parts is typically around a year or less, though the gap between Parts 8 and 9 has been the longest. Because of this, fans were hyped up about Araki’s teasers.

To celebrate the New Year, Araki shared a special illustration that seemingly teased the next JoJo protagonist.

Soon, the series’ official release date in Ultra Jump was confirmed for February.

After this, Araki finally gave fans their first look at the next JoJo protagonist.

This delighted fans, as many noted how great the character looks and how well the JoJo motifs are integrated into his outfit.
