What Happened To JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean?

Despite fans loving how Stone Ocean was adapted, they are also hoping that the next JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime will not be handled by Netflix.

At this point, it is still unclear whether Steel Ball Run will actually be adapted. There were previous speculations that Stone Ocean is the last JoJo manga that will get an anime. However, there is still a possibility that the next adaptation will be announced early next year. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

What To Expect in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run

Steel Ball Run is the seventh part of Hirohiko Araki's manga and is the first JoJo's Bizarre Adventure part which is set in an alternate universe, specifically in the United States in 1890. The manga follows Johnny Joestar and Gyro Zeppelli as they compete in the titular cross-country horse race for a $50 million grand prize.
