Visual and Cast Revealed for the Second Part of "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" Anime

Martial arts versus vampire war goes global with Tomokazu Sugita and Atsuko Tanaka along for the adventure

Fans of the cult, multi-generation action manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure have expected that the new anime adaptation will at least adapt the first two parts - Victorian London set gentleman martial artist versus vampire chapter "Phantom Blood" and its globe trotting jazz age pulp follow-up "Battle Tendency."

 

A new spread offers a look at the latter. 

 

 

As expected from the casting on the upcoming Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - All Star Battle fighting game, Tomokazu Sugita (Gintama's Gintoki) voices the role of hero Joseph Joestar - grandson of first JoJo, Jonathan Joestar.


 

Takuya Sato (Cardfight! Vanguard's Toshiki Kai) is rival/brother in arms Caesar.

 

Atsushi Imaruoka is the German cyborg Stroheim - visual inspiration for Street Fighter's Guile.

 

Atsuko Tanaka (Ghost in the Shell's Major) voices the deceptively young looking mentor, Lisa Lisa - inspiration for Street Fighter's Rose.

 

Not mentioned in the promo piece, but the game has Akio Ohtsuka (Solid Snake, Black Jack, Fate/zero's Rider, Ghost in the Shell's Batou) voicing antagonist Wham.
