JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean reveals its official theme song. Warner Brothers Japan revealed that the song is simply titled Stone Ocean. It is the first debut Opening theme of a Jojo Anime that is sung by a woman. Most Jojo opening songs had been sung by men. Except for Part 4 Diamond is Unbreakable because Great Days was sung by Karen Aoki. That song though is not the first intro of Part 4. Stone Ocean is sung by Ichigo. She is the vocalist of the rock band JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets. People have most have positive comments for the song and the intro because of the CGI graphics and comic pop art aesthetic.
The closing themes of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure have always been Western songs. Hirohiko Araki has always been a fan of English lyrics songs from Western countries like the US, UK, and Australia. That is why many characters from his manga are based on real-life singers, bands, and musicians. A living tradition for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime is to have closing theme songs from the decade the Manga was made. Every time a new part of the Manga series gets adapted into an Anime, An English language song is used instead of the typical Jpop and Jrock most anime use. Jojo Anime uses Japanese songs for intros and Vintage English language songs for closing themes. Before the premiere of Part:6 Stone Ocean, Here are the old songs that got reintroduced to a new generation thanks to Jojo.
Stone Ocean is finally an Anime series:
In 1987 Hirohiko Araki started a Saga that expands to multiple generations, Jojo’s Bizarre adventure. Most long-running anime go stale due to multiple fillers and focusing on one protagonist can be a chore too. I mean look how unwatchable Detective Conan, Naruto, and One Piece had become. Jojo’s Bizarre adventure is different because every ark focuses on a different protagonist who is a member of the Joestar family. Every protagonist of each book goes by the nickname, Jojo and all of them have a star shaped birthmark. The Manga is still ongoing and with the long lifespan Japanese people have, I am sure more Jojo books will come. Araki’s ability to reinvent himself as a Mangaka made Jojo a franchise that never goes stale.
