New episodes to screen at event screenings in 6 Japanese cities from December to March

The official website for the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime revealed two new cast members and character designs on Sunday for the two new episodes in the Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan (Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai) original video anime (OVA) project.

The new characters include Kouki Uchiyama as Yoma Hashimoto (pictured left in image below) and Hiroki Takahashi as a young man (pictured right).

The two new episodes — "Zange-shitsu" (Confessional Room) and "The Run" — will play in nine screenings at six cities in Japan between December 8 (Tokyo's TFT Hall 1000) and March 29 (Omiya's Sonic City - Large Hall). Kishibe Rohan voice actor Takahiro Sakurai will appear in talk show segments at every screening.

The anime studio David Production adapted two previous Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan stories as original anime DVDs. The "Fugō Mura" (Millionaire Village) episode was available for people who purchased all 13 DVD or Blu-ray Disc volumes of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable anime in 2017. The "Mutsukabezaka" (Mutsukabe Hill) episode came with the manga's second volume last year. Crunchyroll screened the overseas premiere of "Fugō Mura" at its Crunchyroll Expo event on August 30.

Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan is a series of Hirohiko Araki's manga one-shots starring his 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 in February 2018 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
