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]]. Also central to the series are the power of Hamon, a martial art that channels the user's inner energy into a form similar to sunlight, and Stands, psycho-spiritual manifestations of willpower that can have a wide variety of abilities. Each [=JoJo=] must gather a group of allies, master Hamon or their Stand, and defeat whatever villain is threatening the world.

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.
