Jojo's Spin-off Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan lands on Netflix

Written by Ross Locksley on 18 Feb 2021



Netflix UK have expanded their anime roster once more, this time adding Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan, a four-part spin-off from the fan-favourite Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

The series was originally a series of one-shot manga (known as Kushibe Rohan Wa Ugokanai) by Hirohiko Araki. The anime was released in Japan as an OVA episodes available to those who had purchased the entire series of Diamond is Unbreakable. Adopting a horror theme, the series supposedly takes inspiration from Twin Peaks and The Twilight Zone, with director Toshiyuki Kato deliberately selecting a different colour palette to the Jojo's series in order to create a sense of familiarity and unease.

Netflix Summary:

A popular manga creator becomes enmeshed in paranormal events while conducting research: Stand User Kishibe Rohan visits Italy, goes bankrupt and more.
