posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Jason DeMarco, Vice President and Creative Director, On-Air for Adult Swim, confirmed on Twitter on Thursday that the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure television anime series will premiere on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block starting in October. DeMarco also added that the airing will start with the show's Part 1.
Viz Media had announced at Anime Expo earlier this month that it will release Part 1 (Phantom Blood) of the new JoJo's Bizarre Adventure television anime series on Blu-ray Disc. The Blu-ray Disc release will include an English dub.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, who released Parts 1 and 2 in a DVD set, still holds the DVD rights to the series.
Viz Media had announced in March that it would stream JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Parts 1, 2, and 3, as well as the the ongoing Part 4 anime series. The company had also announced in February 2015 that it was the North American master merchandise licensee for the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime series, but clarified at the time that the license agreement covered the merchandise based on the anime, not the anime itself.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released Parts 1 and 2 of the series on DVD with an English dub on September 22.
