I love how they're adapting Araki's current art style for this OVA. It's like a sneak peek of what an eventual SBR or JoJolion anime might look like.

They're adapting Millionaire Village. Hopefully they do more in the future but that's all that's planned for the OVA.

They released the character designs on their site today. It's linked in the OP.
It sucks that they're only adapting one chapter. If they use Part's pacing, they can fit two Rohan chapters in 20+ mins. I'm assuming that the episode will be half an episode long.

Also, it seems like they're using Araki's latest art-style. This is the first time this art-style is getting animated :D

Can't wait to hear Sakurai Takahiro as Rohan again ♥
I really want to believe this is a warm-up for Vento Aureo

I'm quite liking this. First Fate now Jojo's. Hope this trend continues for her.

HE IS TOO RADIANT & BEAUTIFUL.
SEND HELP.


I'm on cloud nine rn...anime has been so good this year & apparently it keeps getting better.
I was curious about how they'd do the character designs, and it seems they've opted for the style in the current manga as opposed to sticking with the Part 4 style.

It looks lush as hell from what's been revealed. I kind of want David Pro to use this style for future JoJo anime adaptations tbh

I eagerly await the OVA, it's about time we get some more info.

I'll watch it just for Rohan because he's the only decent character in Part 4 to be completely fair.
