An anime adaptation of the sixth part of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) manga series, Stone Ocean, was announced at the franchise's special event, Joestar Uketsugareru Tamashii (Joestar the Inherited Soul), on Sunday.

Warner Bros. Japan also opened an official website, revealing a teaser visual (pictured) and an announcement promo. Voice actress Ai Fairouz (Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?) will star as the protagonist Jolyne Kuujou.

Synopsis
In Florida, 2011, Jolyne Kuujou sits in a jail cell like her father Joutarou once did; yet this situation is not of her own choice. Framed for a crime she didn't commit, and manipulated into serving a longer sentence, Jolyne is ready to resign to a dire fate as a prisoner of Green Dolphin Street Jail. Though all hope seems lost, a gift from Joutarou ends up awakening her latent abilities, manifesting into her Stand, Stone Free. Now armed with the power to change her fate, Jolyne sets out to find an escape from the stone ocean that holds her.

However, she soon discovers that her incarceration is merely a small part of a grand plot: one that not only takes aim at her family, but has additional far-reaching consequences. What's more, the mastermind is lurking within the very same prison, and is under the protection of a lineup of menacing Stand users. Finding unlikely allies to help her cause, Jolyne sets course to stop their plot, clear her name, and take back her life. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Stone Ocean was serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump from 1999 to 2003 and compiled into 17 volumes. Shueisha later reprinted the manga in 11 volumes in 2008–2009.

David Production adapted the first five parts of the manga series into television anime with the most recent, Ougon no Kaze (Golden Wind), airing in Fall 2018. Crunchyroll simulcast the anime as it aired in Japan. VIZ Media released the show on two home video installments on September 1 and February 23.

I wonder if Ai Fairouz has same personality with Miyukichi when she was voiced Jolyne in game version (has angry issue with OnoD, has manly voiced when she shout "ORAORAORA" & her best qoute "YARE YARE DAWA")
