The official website for the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure television anime began streaming a promotional video for Jōtarō Kūjō and his Star Platinum stand on Saturday. The trailer was also presented at the AnimeJapan 2014 convention.

The Warner Entertainment booth at Anime Japan is giving away exclusive B3-size posters (pictured above) and an exclusive paper hat (Jōtarō Kūjō's model) this weekend. The booth's wall has a giant illustration and a life-size figure of Jōtarō Kūjō. The booth's large monitors are also showing this latest promotional video and other videos.

LAWSON convenience stores started a new JoJo's Bizarre Adventure campaign (pictured above) on Saturday, and various tie-in goods are also on sale at AnimeJapan's LAWSON booth.

David Production's earlier 26-episode television anime covered both Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency from the original manga. That anime finished airing last April.

The new series will premiere on Friday, April 4 at 24:30 (effectively Saturday, April 5 at 12:30 a.m.) on the Tokyo MX TV station.
