Fans of the beloved JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise are getting more of the fan-favorite manga artist and Stand user, Rohan Kishibe, in his brand new spin-off series Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan. The spin-off is a Netflix-exclusive series that just released and while fans rejoice over new JoJo stories, the original JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series currently available on Netflix will be leaving the streaming service soon.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has taken the world by storm and it's no wonder that its growing fan base is passionate about seeing more of the Joestar bloodline and their epic world of colorful characters. Netflix subscribers have been pleased to find that the popular anime is available to stream, despite the service only carrying the series' first three parts: Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency and Stardust Crusaders.
For those new to the series, it's a great way to start watching the show. Its first 74 episodes available on Netflix follow the adventures of Jonathan Joestar, Joseph Joestar and Jotaro Kujo, helming the titular role as the leading JoJo in said chronological order. Sadly, Parts 4 and 5, Diamond Is Unbreakable and Golden Wind, never made it to Netflix, and come March 7th, 2021, the available Parts 1-3 will be leaving the streaming service with no announced return date.
On a positive note for fans of the show, the new four-episode spin-off series, Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan, has just released and is set between Diamond Is Unbreakable and Golden Wind. Rohan Kishibe is first introduced in Diamond Is Unbreakable, where he becomes an ally to Josuke Higashikata, the fourth JoJo (with the most talked-about haircut).
In his new show, Rohan is a famous manga artist who sets out to travel the world, seeking inspiration from other people's lives to add more realism to his works. Using his Stand ability, "Heaven's Door," he can read and write in a person, altering their knowledge, behavior, memories and abilities. Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe is only on Netflix and can't be streamed anywhere else, so hold onto your subscription if you intend to watch the series.
Whilst Parts 1-3 will be leaving Netflix in early March, Hulu subscribers will be pleased to know that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Parts 1-4 are currently available for a good binge or a casual watch, with no announcements made about it leaving the streaming service anytime soon. For the Hamon lovers who simply can't stand to miss out on more JoJo and don't have a Hulu subscription, the entirety of the original series with all of its current 5 Parts is available to stream on Crunchyroll, VRV and TubiTV.
