Let’s face it: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is super memorable, with classic lines, poses, fights, and confrontations! Let's take a look at some of the best homages and references to JoJo in other anime!
After a run of some 5 years and 14 collected volumes, Kiss Him, Not Me - a manga by Junko about a high school fujoshi who becomes suddenly popular after a dramatic transformation - has published its final chapter in the March 2018 issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend manga magazine, which was published in Japan on February 13, 2018. Hit the jump to learn more.
Prior to the fall 2016 Kiss Him Not Me anime, volumes 5, 7, 8 and 9 of Junko's manga in 2015/2016 included drama CDs starring Kana Hanazawa, Hiroshi Kamiya, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Takahiro Sakurai, Tatsuhisa Suzuki and Chinatsu Akasaki. With volume 13 planned for November 13th, a new drama CD has been announced. This time it will feature the anime cast (Yū Kobayashi, Yuki Ono, Keisuke Kōmoto, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and Nobunaga Shimazaki).
Between keeping up on this season's anime (she is apparently watching at least Occultic;Nine and Yuri!!! on Ice), and celebrating her birthday, Kiss Him Not Me author Junko was evidently going through some old material. With a note that she didn't get the shirts quite right, Junko shared look at the gender-swapped version of the cast that she prepared for a booklet released with the manga's volume nine. Get a look after the jump.
This week's Kiss Him, Not Me episode 8, "I'm at a Disadvantage!" introduced Nozomu Nanashima's (CV Keisuke Kōmoto) imouto (CV Sayuri Yahagi) and his secret ability to dance to the theme of anime-within-an-anime Puri Puri Moon. Kōmoto seems especially game for promoting the series (he helped out on a karaoke collaboration last month) and this week he was filmed demonstrating the dance.
