There is cause for celebration among fans of the JoJo franchise, given that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime, and a number of details surrounding its 10th Anniversary Project have been revealed. The project’s official website is here.
Expect an Exhibition, Collab, Theme Park, and More
For one, there will be an exhibition. The exhibition traces the 10-year history of the anime, and it will be held this summer.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is honoring the 10th Anniversary milestone for the anime with a video (below). Looking back on 10 long years of the anime, Warner Bros. Japan shared a special video hyping up the franchise’s milestone anniversary!
The anime music magazine Lisani! will release a special volume covering the 10-year history of the anime series titled Lis-Ani! JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure The Animation Music Compendium this summer. The book will include interviews with artists, staff members, and voice actors who have sung the series’ theme songs.
A collaboration has also been activated. Since 2022 coincidentally marks the 10th anniversary of the Tokyo Skytree tower too, a collaboration event between the anime and the tower – charmingly named “JOJOTREE” – will be held from May 10 to August 9.
It has been announced that throughout the event’s duration, various photo spots on the tower’s Tembo Galleria floor (situated 450 meters above ground) will be decorated with new visuals of JoJo characters. Additionally, event-exclusive goods and café menus will be available, and special videos will be shown in the Skytree Round Theater.
Furthermore, there will be JOJO WORLD2, a pop-up theme park that will feature attractions from the world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, mini-games with prizes featuring original illustrations, exclusive merchandise, photo spots, and more!
Hirohiko Araki’s original manga series is one of Shueisha’s longest-running manga overall as the franchise has seen nine different iterations since it first hit the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine back in 1987.
Before getting a first full official anime adaptation, the franchise had received some OVA releases and other specials over the years. It was after a full TV anime adaptation from David Production in 2012 that fans really got to see Araki’s series come to life. Part 2 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean is currently scheduled to hit Netflix worldwide sometime this fall.
We think all of this looks really awesome!
Madly in love with anime and football...... it's disturbing.
