JoJo Part 6 Stone Ocean: Release Date, Visuals, and Trailers

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean is the upcoming fifth season of the famous JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure franchise, adapting the sixth arc of the series, Stone Ocean.

We are getting the best of both worlds with Jolyne, the first female MC for the franchise, and the streaming giant, Netflix, deciding to stream the upcoming season exclusively.

The events of Stone Ocean take place ten years after the events of Golden Wind(the previous season). Thus it does not continue the journey of the Stand wielder of Gold Experience. 

A new arc to the wacky world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure charged with Jotaro’s return is highly anticipated by fans worldwide. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming Netflix series.

1. Release Date

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean will premiere exclusively on Netflix in December 2021. The anime will cover vol. 64-80 of the manga, with a total of 158 chapters.

I. Netflix List Stone Ocean as Monthly Release

Netflix reveals that new episodes of the series will be streamed monthly. This differs from the streaming company’s usual method of premiering all episodes of an original show simultaneously.

It’s doubtful that Netflix will go with one episode per month, instead, the streaming platform might release multiple episodes monthly. And if it’s true, we might get 3-4 episodes of Stone Ocean each month on Netflix.

2. Key Visual

The key visual gives a glimpse of the gloomy prison where we see the female protagonist, Jolyne Cujoh, along with the inmates.

The trailer also introduces us to Jolyne’s allies and friends while hinting at the shady business going down in the prison.

4. Plot/Storyline

The story of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean follows the female protagonist, Jolyne Cujoh. It continues the tradition of JoJo leads having ‘JoJo’ somewhere in their name. In this case, Jolyne Cujoh.

Set in 2011 America, Jolyne Cujoh is sentenced to 15 years in prison after being involved in a car accident and framed for murder. She is imprisoned at the Green Dolphin Street Prison in Florida, nicknamed the “Aquarium.” 

Her father, Jotaro Kujo, gives her a pendant that causes a mysterious power to awaken inside of her. When a series of inexplicable events occur, Jotaro informs his daughter that a disciple of DIO framed her so that he could kill her in prison and urges her to escape.

6. What Is The Episode Count?

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series has never had a constant number of episodes in its previous installments. As such, it has its lowest episode count in season 1, with only 26 episodes. The highest episode count is 48 episodes from season 2. 

Stone Ocean has a total of 158 chapters, so judging by the release of previous arcs, this means we could expect to see anywhere between 39 to 48 episodes.

9. Conclusion

Like the rest of the franchise, Stone Ocean has pulled in millions of fans just by its trailer, which portrays its unique art style, flashy poses, and overly muscular characters.

I’m sure that the upcoming season will go down in history as the best JoJo series ever made.

The appearance of Jotaro in Stone Ocean makes it even more charismatic, and I’m curious to know how Jolyne will escape the prison. Will DIO’s disciple be successful in killing her?
