** Set in 1938, Joseph Joestar is the rough-and-tumble but extremely clever grandson of Jonathan with a natural skill in the Ripple, and lives in New York City with his grandmother Erina. After learning his "uncle" Speedwagon has been kidnapped by Waffen-SS researchers in Mexico led by Commander Rudol von Stroheim, Joseph goes to save him, only to have to save both Speedwagon and Stroheim from an ancient superhuman being known as a Pillar Man, the race that created the Stone Masks. Stroheim informs Joseph of three other Pillar Men the German forces discovered in Italy, so he travels to Europe, meeting up with fellow Ripple user Caesar Zeppeli (Will's grandson) to stop them, but they have already awoken. Before they kill him, Joseph manages to bluff his way into saying he can master the Ripple in a month's time and become a formidable opponent, which leads the Pillar Men to spare him save for implanting time-release poisons that will kill him if he cannot fulfill his side of the deal, while they search for a gemstone known as the Red Stone of Aja which will make them truly immortal. To save his life, Caesar takes Joseph to train under his own Ripple teacher: the mysterious, beautiful, and deadly Lisa Lisa, who knows more about Joseph than she leads on.\\

Created in 1987 by the mangaka Creator/HirohikoAraki, the series is famous for its original and unique art style, intricate plot, and creative battles. It also features a huge number of allusions to Western rock music, including characters named [[Music/RonnieJamesDio DIO]], [[Music/REOSpeedwagon Speedwagon]], and [[Music/LedZeppelin Zeppeli]], just to name a few. Although ''[=JoJo's=] Bizarre Adventure'' has not been able to receive recognition like other imported manga and anime (primarily due to the [[ScrewedByTheLawyers egregious legal issues]] caused by the wide number of musical references), it is still very well-received by fans all over. With the insane kind of plots that involve sapient plankton, turtles that are {{bigger on the inside}}, and Rock, Paper, Scissors death matches, is it any wonder?

Western audiences are likely more familiar with the memes the series has produced because of the series' general theme (read: [[WorldOfBadass badassery]]), as well as the Capcom fighting game ''[[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureHeritageForTheFuture Heritage For The Future]]'' and OVA adaptations of ''Stardust Crusaders''.
