JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind is the manga's fifth part that continues the story from the previous entries in Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga. The story begins when Jotaro asks Koichi to travel to Naples to investigate a person known as Haruno Shiobana, whose real name is later revealed as Giorno Giovanna. The story then follows Giorno in his goal to rise to the top of the Passione mafia group and turn it into a band of honorable thieves.

Yasuhiro Kimura (Three Leaves, Three Colors) and Hideya Takahashi (Keijo!!!!!!!!, Anonymous Noise) are directing the anime at David Production, with Naokatsu Tsuda as chief director. Yasuko Kobayashi is returning from the previous anime to handle the series composition, with most of the staff also returning from previous JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. Takahiro Kishida (Serial Experiments Lain, Baccano!, Haikyu!!) is drawing the character designs. Shun'ichi Ishimoto is the animation director. Yoshikazu Iwanami is the sound director, and Yūgo Kanno is composing the music.

Coda performed the anime's opening theme song "Fighting Gold." Neko Oikawa wrote the lyrics, and Toshiyuki Omori was in charge of composition and arrangement. The ending song is "Freek'n You" by R&B group Jodeci.
