The JOJOLands Protagonist Jodio Joestar Wants to Be Rich

jodio joestar jojolands

Part 9 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, The JOJOLands, started on February 17, 2023 in Ultra Jump. Because of this, we also know some more information about the titular JoJo, as well as his quest. Jodio Joestar is the name of the JoJo in The JOJOLands and the story centers on how he became a filthy rich millionaire. However, the mechanism he used to achieve that was rather unconventional.

As a warning, the first chapter of The JOJOLands does have a scene of a cop sexually assaulting a character. The JOJOLands takes place in Oahu, Hawaii some time around 2021. Even in the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure universe, COVID-19 exists. Stands will still be the main power system in The JOJOLands, and we get a glimpse of three of the main characters’. Again, all of the Stand names are song references. We also get a quick overview of Jodio Joestar and his past, as well as his family structure, in the first chapter.

It seems that Jodio’s story will be similar to Giorno’s in Golden Wind. As a reminder, Giorno was the protagonist of Vento Aureo, which was Part 5. Giorno wanted to be the leader of the local gang (a gang star, to be more precise), and what started as a normal escort mission soon became something bigger than that.

The JOJOLands has started serialization in Ultra Jump. It is unclear when the official English version for it will come out.
