    The TRUE best show of 2012 (and possibly 2013) is coming back!

    This will be an adaptation of the famous Stardust Crusaders arc (one of only two to have been previously animated) introducing Jotaro Kujo and the Stands as well the return of Dio Brando. Considering how much money David Production made off the first season, the animation should look sweet to boot.

    That's awesome :D!

    Bring on the CG opening, the fancy poses, and Takehito Koyasu as Dio!

    good question
    And now for the all important question:

    What song will they use as the ED?

    Probably Roundabout, but maybe they'll switch to I've Seen All Good People or Going For the One.

    I had assumed that when Part 3 got the re-animation treatment, that it would be combined with Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable/Not Crash into a single series as was the case with Part 1 and 2. But seeing as how Stardust Crusaders story arc is twice as long as both Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency were in the manga, it probably would take the full season set of 26 episodes to do justice to it if not more.

    Yeah, Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency were able to be combined because they're the shortest arcs of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Even with their 5 chapters per episode average, unless they speed through or outright skip less-important battles, any further parts will need 26 episodes minimum, possibly even 39 in some cases.

    Definitely hyped for this.

    I know it's incredibly unlikely but I'd love if they used this song as insert for the famed Jotaro vs Dio battle.

    Happy that my favorite ridiculous shounen fighting series is back. Hopefully the animation looks better this time around.

    Jojo was a lot of stupid fun and the style made up for the low budget, but having decent animation can only improve it.

    Character promo for Joseph.

    I really hope the show's licensing problems can finally be sorted out this year with the game coming to the US. It's be awesome to legally view it.

    Well, All Star Battle is going to be released internationally this year, so I assume there are also plans to bring the Jojo anime to the west.

    As for the preview:

    - Joseph is still Joseph ;).

    - Dio :D!

    - Jonathan even gets a mention!

    Oh Avdol you're the worst character in Stardust Crusaders. Kakyoin and Polnareffs trailers should be more entertaining.
    I still wanna know how many episodes its gonna be, I'm hoping for more than 26.
