JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 6 New Release Schedule Shared by Netflix
Netflix updated its media center for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 6 Stone Ocean.
Many fans are awaiting the release of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6 Stone Ocean, and Netflix just updated its media center listing, changing the release schedule of the anime.
JoJo Part 6 anime no longer listed as “monthly” release
On October 9, several JoJo fans on social media noted Netflix updated the listing on its media center. Previously, it stated that JoJo Part 6 will have each new episode streamed “monthly”.
However, the new listing has removed the monthly mention, hinting episodes will be released weekly like any usual anime broadcast in Japan. As you can see in the Netflix screenshot below.
In the past, Netflix regularly did monthly releases or released whole seasons altogether. Most of the time by renaming one cour / 13 episodes of an anime into a single season, even if the Japanese original listing considered 26 episodes to be one season. This makes certain series slightly more complicated to follow, as the listing of seasons is different on Netflix and in Japan.
However, Netflix is more and more starting to do simulcast, weekly releases. As seen with the upcoming art-themed anime Blue Period, which will be released weekly. So it looks like JoJo Part 6 will be one of the few series trying this out. This is definitely cooler for anime fans, used to waiting a week for one episode rather than one month for four.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean will begin streaming exclusively on Netflix on December 2021, but no specific day was communicated yet.
The JoJo Part 6 anime was first announced in April 2021, with popular seiyuu Fairouz Ai voicing protagonist Jolyne Cujoh. Meanwhile, the original manga by Hirohiko Araki just finished going through its Part 8, JoJolion, after nearly 11 years. Part 9 was already announced, alongside a new spin-off.
