About THUS SPOKE KISHIBE ROHAN OVA
OVA means original video animation. The one-shot is manga chapters. The story is wrapped up in 50-60 pages. So, Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe is the first Jojo OVA to be released in over a decade. The animated version of the one-shots “Millionaire Village and Mutsu-kabe Hill ” were released right after Diamond is Unbreakable ended. Their art style matches the style used in the manga itself.
Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan follows the solo adventures of Morioh’s own mangaka Rohan Kishibe. As he studies people and places alike while working on something new every now. The characters from DIU might make an appearance. The stories are separated from the original storyline of Diamond IS Unbreakable. It often involves Rohan & his stand “Heaven’s Door”. It resembles a small boy similar to Rohan’s manga character, Pink Dark Boy. Not a combat type stand, but useful for gathering intel on others. Heaven’s door subdues people which enables Rohan to read about the people and every deed they did in the past like a manga itself.
For fans of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure:
Animation of the following episodes will take place:
- Episode 16: At a Confessional
- Episode 9 : The Run
Although the stories of the one shots make sense when they are in a chronological order after the release. They will release it just like the manga version.
