    We have some bizarre news to discuss, http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-ne...re-adventure-anime-continues-with-vento-aureo. Part 5 announced and Japanese staff listed. Voice cast and number of episodes not yet announced. How long do we anticipate this part to be?

    On another topic, still nothing on the dub of part 4 despite part 3's Toonami airing coming close to an end. The first half of Stardust Crusaders is getting a Blu-Ray release, including a $70 special edition with lots of cool special features, https://www.viz.com/watch/tv-series/jojo-s-bizarre-adventure-season-2/product/5573. It's gonna be a while until we get parts 4 and 5 on Blu-Ray, unfortunately. Anybody anticipate the sudden announcement of a part 4 dub and any cast predictions?

    Given the sheer density of this part, my guess is at least 40 episodes.

    Another thing to speculate about, the ending theme. Which popular song is it going to be?

    Considering the fact that Boruto isn't dubbed yet, I'm worried that Viz hasn't started the part 4 dub yet because Viz is the slowest dubbing company out there. Part 5 won't be on Blu-Ray in the USA until 2021, knowing how they work. I hope I'm wrong and that they are secretly doing a dub. Any convention announcements will be big. Let's keep our eyes peeled on that.

    I'm going with approximately 39 episodes. Part 4 felt a bit rushed at that length, but it had twenty more chapters than Part 5 to cover, while Part 3 (which is just three chapters shorter than Part 5) had 48 episodes, but as a result some episodes felt stretched out. For Part 5, especially since it's more action-heavy than Part 4 (so the fights should help the pacing), 39 seems like the sweet spot.

    The popular fan choice, from what I've seen, seems to be "Gangsta's Paradise". It matches up perfectly with the time frame that Part 5 was originally published during (Part 5 started in November 1995, Coolio's song was released only a month before) and it fits with the main characters of Part 5 being gangsters (though, in this case, the Italian variety).

    I'm not too worried. Part 3's dub has probably been finished for a while (work began on it shortly before Toonami even started airing Part 1) and we'll probably hear casting info for Part 4's dub during Viz's JoJo panel at Anime Expo next month. Then its release window may be largely up to when Toonami has space available; They probably won't go straight into Part 4 when Part 3's dub ends, since Attack on Titan season 3 will be ready around then. Taking Labor Day into account, Pop Team Epic will finish the third week of September, so (if Viz has it ready in time) JoJo Part 4 could show up as soon as September 29th (which would be great since that's only a month and a half after Part 3 ends). If not then, it probably won't be until early next year.

    I imagine Boruto hasn't been dubbed yet because Viz still has 56 episodes of Shippuden left to release. Either for practical or licensing purposes, they're likely waiting to finish Shippuden before moving on.

    Maybe this adaptation can improve upon it. Hopefully, we can have the entire JoJo series adapted into anime format. It looks like we'll get one part every two years. JoJo part 4 seemed to get a huge popularity boost following its anime adaptation. Will part 5 have a similar fate?

    Part 5 has popularity issues in the West due to bad translations, and really not helped by the fact that there was a PS2 game adaptation of Part 5 that never made it out of Japan due to Prince and his lawyers. Though I'm honestly not certain why people thought Part 5 wouldn't get made into an anime, it's one of the most popular Parts of JoJo in Japan alongside Parts 3 and 7.

    But man there are things hat will be awesome to see, and maybe the anime will clear up how a certain Stand works.

    Pretty sure people only say part 5 anime will never get made as a joke. It's a recurring gag in the fandom. As for how that certain Stand works, it just works. :^)

    Anyways, the first episode of Golden Wind was screened earlier today at France Anime Expo. You can see a portion of the footage here.

    Also there is a joke(though they may be serious) in the JoJo fandom that they want the Ending song to be gnagsta's Paradise, which does fit quite well.

    Cool to know about the first episode screening. The screencaps seem to be just the cgi intro and that's it. I don't really expect it to be that huge a change in aesthetics from part 4. Still dying to know what the ending song is.

    Correction: It was two excerpts of the footage shown. Here are the screencaps:

    I think they're being serious, because the song does fit the whole gangsta theme very well.

    Well that licking scene was creepy? That guy seems to be the bad guy, but without context it's hard to tell. Just a few more months until it's real premiere sometime in October. Too bad there probably aren't any French people on Toonzone who can describe the experience. I'm sure it rocks, becuase it's the JoJo anime, but it would be reassuring to hear some hype.

    From Viz's panel, https://twitter.com/VIZMedia Diamond is Unbreakable will come to Toonami on the 18th and there will be an American video release of the live action movie. Fairly new voice actor Billy Kametz will be Josuke in the anime dub.
