Netflix has announced that it will stream the anime of Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan (Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai), Hirohiko Araki’s spin-off manga for his JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga, in 190 countries starting on February 18, 2021.
The anime studio David Production adapted two Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan stories as original anime DVDs with director Toshiyuki Kato and character designer Shunichi Ishimoto. The “Fugō Mura” (Millionaire Village) episode was available for people who purchased all 13 DVD or Blu-ray Disc volumes of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable anime in 2017. The “Mutsukabezaka” (Mutsukabe Hill) episode came with the manga’s second volume in July 2018. Crunchyroll screened the overseas premiere of “Fugō Mura” at its Crunchyroll Expo event in August 2019.
David Production then produced two new episodes, “Zange-shitsu” (Confessional Room) and “The Run,” which played at nine screenings at six cities in Japan between December 2019 and March 2020.
