People will soon be able to read JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean in English, rather than just watch it, as the manga localization is on the way. On February 3, 2023, Viz Media kicked off an array of announcements. Among them is the confirmation that starting in Fall 2023, people will be able to find English volumes of Jolyne Cujoh.
Here’s the official JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean English manga announcement. It also shows the Japanese cover, which shows Jolyne handcuffed and in jail at Green Dolphin Street Prison.

As a reminder, Stone Ocean picks up after Golden Wind. Its star is Jolyne, daughter of Jotaro Kujo from parts like Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable. After taking the blame for a crime she didn’t commit, Jolyne is sentenced to prison. It is there that she gets the Stand Stone Free. She then ends up dealing with corruption in the prison and must save her father, with help from characters like Ermes Costello, Foo Fighters, Weather Report, and Narciso Anasui. An anime adaptation is already available and streaming on Netflix.
The JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean manga will begin appearing in English in Fall 2023.
