Go To
A story birthed in the ancient cradle of Mexico.

Blood Sun Vendetta is a web animated series created by Mick Lauer, also known as RicePirate. It is inspired / based on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure by Hirohiko Araki, and takes place in the same universe.

It is set in 1999, around the same time as Diamond is Unbreakable. Across the country of Mexico, a handful of strangers have been unwittingly set on a collision course with fate towards each other. Meanwhile, the nights have since become increasingly dangerous, as an epidemic of bodies drained of blood spread across the countryside. This inevitably catches the attention of Jose Hijo del Caballo, son of the criminal Hol Horse.

Little do they know, they are at the epicenter of this fate-shifting force, drawn in as if by gravity itself...
