The official website of the television anime adaptations of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga revealed on Thursday that the CD single for the theme songs and music of the anime DVDs based on Araki's Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan (Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai) manga will ship on July 19. The theme songs and music return for the second anime DVD, with Yūgo Kanno's opening music "Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai no Tema" (Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan Theme), and Coda's ending theme song "FINDING THE TRUTH."
The new DVD will ship with the manga's second volume on July 19. The deadline to pre-order the limited-edition version of the manga volume with the DVD is May 16. The bundle will cost 3,500 yen (about US$33).
The anime will adapt the manga's second "episode" from the first volume, titled "Mutsukabezaka." The anime features a returning staff, including director Toshiyuki Kato, anime studio David Production, assistant director Yasufumi Soejima, character designer Shun'ichi Ishimoto, Stand designer Kenta Mimuro, and composer Yūgo Kanno.
The cast for the anime includes:
- Takahiro Sakurai as Rohan Kishibe
- Atsumi Tanezaki as Naoko Ōsato
- Junji Majima as Gunpei Kamafusa
- Takamasa Mogi as Minoru Kaigamori
- Yuuki Kaji as Kōichi Hirose

- Yasuyuki Kase as Mikitaka Hazekura
- Shinnosuke Ogami as Naoko's Father
- Takeaki Masuyama as Shūichi

The manga previously inspired an original anime DVD (OAD) for those who purchased all 13 DVD or Blu-ray Disc volumes of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable anime. The anime adapted the "Fugō Mura" (Millionaire Village) story from the manga. The anime shipped last year.
Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai is a series of one-shots starring the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable character Rohan Kishibe, who is also Araki's fictional alter ego. Shueisha published the first compiled book volume of the different Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai stories in November 2013. The manga's latest installment, titled "Episode 10: The Run," debuted on February 26 in the 13th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
