Based on the long-running and hugely popular manga series by Hirohiko Araki, JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE features a different protagonist for each of its story arcs, with the fact that each one is a descendent of the powerful Joestar family. Because of inheriting the Joestar family genes, each member in STARDUST CRUSADERS has special fighting abilities known as “Stand,” which manifests itself differently in each person. Part 3 of the series, STARDUST CRUSADERS, focuses on Jotaro Kujo, the grandson of Joseph Joestar, protagonist from the second series. The English dub of JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE: STARDUST CRUSADERS features the talents of voice actors Matthew Mercer (Jotaro Kujo), Richard Epcar (Joseph Joestar), and Patrick Seitz (DIO).
