JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 3 Anime's Cast Confirmed

posted on by Egan Loo

The main cast for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, the anime adaptation of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 3 manga, was confirmed at the Jump Festa event on Sunday:

  • Daisuke Ono as Jotaro Kujo (top left in image below)
  • Unshou Ishizuka as Josef Joestar (Old, top right)
  • Kenta Miyake as Mohammed Abdul (center left)
  • Daisuke Hirakawa as Noriaki Kakyoin (center right)
  • Fuminori Komatsu as Jean Pierre Polnareff (bottom left)
  • Takehito Koyasu as Dio

Tomokazu Sugita, Masashi Ebara, Koji Yusa, and Hiroaki Hirata played Josef Joestar, Mohammed Abdul, Noriaki Kakyoin, and Jean Pierre Polnareff in this year's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle fighting game for the PlayStation 3. In a CD bundled with Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine last month, the staff indicated that the anime will differ in some aspects from the game.

Director Naokatsu Tsuda and series director Kenichi Suzuki are once again overseeing the anime at David Production. Yasuko Kobayashi is in charge of the series scripts, and Masahiko Komino is designing the characters.

The series will premiere on Friday, April 4, 2014 at 24:30 (effectively Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 12:30 a.m.) on the Tokyo MX TV station.

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 in April.

Namco Bandai Games is releasing JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle in North America, Europe, and Australasia next year. The company released the game in Japan on August 29.
