In spite of its immense popularity, the series never had a full anime adaptation for a long time. A series of [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVAs]] based on Part 3 and a now [[MissingEpisode lost-to-history]] feature film adaptation of Part 1 were released in the meantime, though both took liberties with the source material. To commemorate the manga's 25th anniversary in 2012, the long-awaited anime adaptation produced by David Production, written by Creator/YasukoKobayashi and covering Part 1 and Part 2, finally debuted. The 2012 anime was followed up with an adaptation of Part 3 in 2014 and an adaption of Part 4 on April 1, 2016. At Anime Expo 2015, it was confirmed that the 2012 anime would be getting an English dub. A similar announcement was made in 2016, with the test dub's cast returning. It finally saw its long-awaited debut on American airwaves via Creator/{{Toonami}} on Creator/AdultSwim, premiering October 15, 2016. The subbed anime can legally be [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/jojos-bizarre-adventure viewed on]] Website/{{Crunchyroll}}.

The series tells the story of the Joestar family and their endless conflicts with the supernatural. The series spans well over fictional 100 years (and volumes), having been continuously published for the past 30 years. Each part of the saga chronicles the adventures of a member of the Joestar bloodline, which spreads all over the world and gets [[TangledFamilyTree pretty darn confusing]]. They all have three things in common: a star shaped birthmark, a destiny to fight evil, and the nickname [[LegacyCharacter JoJo]]. The story is split into eight parts, the first six of which form their own saga focusing on the impact of the Stone Mask on the Joestar family's lives. The series undergoes a ContinuityReboot of sorts with the storylines that occur afterward, set in an AlternateUniverse that features many of the elements from these first six storylines.

The series is famous for its original and unique art style, intricate plot, creative battles, and immense flamboyancy. It also features a huge number of allusions to Western rock music, including characters named [[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'', though the most recent anime has been giving it a greater amount of exposure among mainstream anime fans.
