Synopsis

Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai adapts a handful of one-shots based on the manga series JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken, and follows the bizarre adventures that Rohan Kishibe goes through as he searches for inspiration for his manga.

Fugou Mura

Rohan accompanies manga editor Kyouka Izumi to a secretive village where she plans on buying a house. Izumi informs Rohan that inhabitants of the village suddenly become rich at the age of 25 after purchasing their homes. Being 25 years old herself, Izumi has high hopes for moving into the village and invites Rohan to gather ideas for his manga. As they enter one of the houses for an interview with the seller, they are greeted by a servant named Ikkyuu, who puts them through a test of etiquette with deadly consequences.

Mutsukabezaka

Rohan meets with his editor, Minoru Kagamari, to discuss both his manga and the six mountains that the manga author recently bought. He explains that he purchased the mountains in order to search for a legendary spirit known as the Mutsukabezaka. To give his search context, he tells the tale of Naoko Osato, a wealthy heiress who murdered her boyfriend and became cursed by the spirit.

Zangenshitsu

Rohan decides to vacation in Venice after putting his manga on hiatus. While there, he explores the interior of a church and examines the structure of its confessional. After stepping into the priest's compartment, Rohan hears a man enter the confessional and begin to confess his sins. The man recounts his confrontation with a starving beggar and the haunting events that followed.

The Run

Youma Hashimoto is a young male model who has quickly risen to success. As his popularity grows, so does his obsession with his appearance and body. One day, he meets Rohan at the gym, and the two quickly form a rivalry which pushes Youma to intensify his training. Soon. Youma's fixation on his physique takes a dark turn as his training takes precedence over his life, and he challenges Rohan to a fatal competition on the treadmills.

Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe is a collection of one-shot stories adapted from the Diamond is Unbreakable spin-off manga, and is produced by David Productions. The OVA is released over a span of two and a half years, and the time spent thoroughly producing all four episodes really shows. The final two episodes are finally out, so I’ll take the chance in writing a review.

We follow the daily life and mishaps of Rohan Kishibe, one of the main characters from Part 4 of JoJo who works as a manga artist and is a fellow stand user who can peer into people and edit information about them read more

David Productions decided to give JoJo fans an Rohan OVA instead of any informations about the animated version of Vento Aureo, at first I was optimistic... until I saw the teasers and screenshots (Okuyasu what have they done to you). My pessimism was growing more and more until I actually watched it, and I was pleasantly suprised

I'll start with the best thing about the episode which is suprisingly the animation and music. Everything looks great, the animation itself is smooth and the overall style fits the tone of the story, especially the moments with the darker colour pattern look very nice. The Music... well it's read more

The world's most asshole JoJo character comes back again to draw on some faces and punch some children, These two OVAs are pretty interesting because David Production worked on this instead of making a good part 5 ed.

The two OVAs starts out in the town of Morioh where eagle eyed viewers will notice that this is actually a parallel universe to the Morioh from part 8 of JoJo. Other things eagle eyed viewers will notice are Rohan's headband and the appearance of Koichi's dad.

The story of these OVAs is secondary to the genius character of Rohan which successfully scared many people away from talking to read more

Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai is a spin-off short series centering around the 6th main character from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure part 4, Rohan Kishibe. The person whose stand power was practically reading anything and anyone like an open book -- turning them into the given book first, of course.

The first story (5th in release order, 3rd in chronological order because sense) was originally released by David Production to reward those who bought the bluray releases for the main story. This episode centered around bunch of rich kids who all had become rich under highly similar circumstances. This type of event could -naturally- only be the read more
