The ninth and final Blu-ray volume of the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure television anime series ships this week, and it ends with the story's signature message in English, "To Be Continued."
The anime's final episode had already ended its broadcast run in April with teaser footage of Jōtarō Kūjō (the protagonist of the third part in Hirohiko Araki's original manga), but it did not have the "To Be Continued" message. The studio David Production has yet to announce more anime, but the staff members have expressed their intentions to continue the anime.
David Production's 26-episode anime premiered last October, and it covered both Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency of Araki's original manga. Part 2 is set 49 years after the first part and stars Joseph Joestar, the grandson of the first part's protagonist Jonathan Joestar.
The manga is currently in its eighth part. The last half of the manga's Part 3 already inspired an original anime video project in 1993, followed by an adaptation of the first half in 2000.
