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.
