*** In addition, many fans speculated at the time that, had Toonami licensed the show, they would've skipped the ''Phantom Blood'' and ''Battle Tendency'' parts in favor of starting with ''Stardust Crusaders''. When the show eventually premiered, Toonami instead opted to start at the beginning with ''Phantom Blood''.

** Araki initially wanted to name Viviano Westwood's Stand "Earth, Wind, and Fire" but instead went with the name "Planet Waves" since "Earth Wind and Fire" was already the name of Mikitaka's ambiguous power in Part 4.

* PlayingAgainstType: Subverted, Jonathan Joestar is actually the kind of character Creator/JohnnyYongBosch would voice (as he had voiced a {{Hotblooded}} shonen protagonist named [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ichigo Kurosaki]] before). The fact that Johnny Yong Bosch pulled a BritishAccent (and a realistic one) actually surprised a lot of fans. [[note]]Johnny Yong Bosch had historically never done accents in any of his voice work except for a particular [[VideoGame/BinaryDomain third-person shooter video game]][[/note]]

** The 2012 anime could've ended up airing on Creator/{{Toonami}} as early as 2014, as fans were heavily requesting the show for the block around the time when the anime was adapting Part 3. However, Warner Bros., who own the DVD rights to the series, weren't interested in letting Toonami air the show without paying a ludicrous sum of money. It wasn't until Creator/VizMedia were able to secure the rights to the show (at least in terms of Blu-Ray releases and merchandising) that Toonami was able to license the show and air it.

** Viz's original paperback releases of ''[[{{Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure}} JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders]]'' attempted this, using its influence on ''{{Manga/Shaman King}}'' and {{Manga/YuGiOh}}'' to pull in readers. Unfortunately, the initial early 2000's run tanked, and the arc wasn't re-released until about a decade later, when the popularity of the anime caused a resurgence in interest.
