Ahead of Warner Bros. Japan Anime’s official reveal of the next season of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime, new pieces of artwork apparently from that season — along with information on its voice cast — surfaced Friday on Twitter.
The unverified art and details for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean were published by the Twitter account @SugoiLITE, which bills itself as posting “Mostly LEAKs and RUMORs.” The art features Stone Ocean’s previously revealed protagonist Jolyne Kujo, alongside several new characters who will form the core cast of this forthcoming season.
In addition to the main art and individual artwork for the characters, @SugoiLITE also tweeted an unconfirmed list of actors voicing these new characters. From left to right, these characters are Jolyne Kujo (Ai Fairouz), Foo Fighters (Mariya Ise), Emporio Alniño (Atsumi Tanezaki), Weather Report (Yuichiro Umehara), Narciso Anasui (Daisuke Namikawa), and Ermes Costello (Mutsumi Tamura).
Jotaro Kujo (Daisuke Ono) — Jolyne’s father, and a recurring main character in both JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable — can also be seen in the far background.
The art seems to have leaked ahead of a presentation dedicated to the series that’s set for this weekend. The prerecorded presentation, which was announced last week, will air on the Warner Bros. Japan Anime YouTube channel at noon Japan Standard Time on Sunday, Aug. 8 (11 p.m. EDT on Saturday, Aug. 7).
Based on the sixth major arc of Hirohiko Araki’s long-running supernatural action series, Stone Ocean will take place in Port St. Lucie, Florida, and will follow Jolyne as she is framed for murder and pitted in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a disciple of the Joestar family’s generational enemy, Dio Brando.
There’s no announcement yet on when Stone Ocean will be released.
