JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6 Stone Ocean follows Jolyne Cujoh as she goes to prison for a crime she didn't commit, set 10 years after events of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. The series, created by Hirohiko Araki, ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from January 1, 2000, to April 21, 2003, and was collected into 17 volumes.


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean sees Ai Fairouz (Hibiki Sakura in How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?) voice Jolyne Cujoh. Ai commented on her casting saying:


"I cannot live without “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” series and it is also what aspired me to take voice acting as a profession.


So when I heard that I was going to be able to participate in the series, I was lost for word and surprised that “Even a Stand would be blown to the moon”.  


I cried so much as it was literally the moment my dream came true, which I have chased over for 12 years.

I love and admire Jolyne as a character and her beautiful, strong nature gave me strength especially during my student years, so I am grateful for the opportunity to voice Jolyne."


Parts 1 to 5 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure are currently streaming on Crunchyroll.
