The official website for the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime franchise announced on Saturday that the 38th and 39th finale episodes of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind anime will both premiere on Tokyo MX, BS11, and MBS on July 28, and on AbemaTV on July 29.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind premiered last October, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan. Viz Media has licensed the anime.

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.

Daisuke Hasegawa is performing the current opening theme song "Uragirimono no Requiem" (Requiem for a Traitor), and the current ending theme song is "Modern Crusaders" by Enigma.
