At the JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Ougon no Kaze - Esperienza d'oro special event on Sunday, a new episode for the Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai (Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan) original video anime was announced. Warner Bros. Japan opened a teaser website for the episode, revealing an announcement trailer.
The new episode will adapt the "Zange-shitsu" (At a Confessional) and "The Run" chapters from the first and second volumes of Hirohiko Araki's one-shot spin-off manga series of the same title.
A special screening for the episode will be held in six cities, beginning with the TFT Hall 1000 in Tokyo on December 8. The following screenings will take place at Zepp Nagoya in Aichi on January 19, Mielparque Hall in Osaka on February 9, Uenogakuen Hall in Hiroshima on February 23, Sendai GIGS in Miyagi on March 8, and Sonic City Hall in Saitama on March 29. Takahiro Sakurai, the voice of the titular protagonist Kishibe Rohan, will attend each of the six events with other guests. Advance ticket sales for the screenings will begin on October 2.
Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai has been primarily published in Weekly Shounen Jump since 1997. Shueisha shipped the second compiled volume last July, which included the second original video episode "Mutsukabezaka" (Mutsukabe Hill).
