JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has announced it has taken another important sales milestone! Hirohiko Araki’s original manga series is one of Shueisha’s oldest action series, but it often doesn’t feel its age because every now and then the creator reboots the concept of the series with a new setting, characters and a story bringing it all together. In fact, the famous creator is even starting to set the stage for the franchise’s ninth entry altogether, and fans can’t wait to see what comes next for this classic manga series. This means that it is also a good time to catch up.
JoJo’s bizarre adventure includes not only the current eight parts of the original manga (and the ninth to come), but also several spin-off projects and more that Araki is also working on in parallel. As the series enters a new era and more fans are drawn to it every day, it appears the series has announced that it has now reached the milestone of 120 million copies now in print. As @WSJ_Manga noted on Twitter, this new milestone comes before Araki prepares to kick off the next era of manga:

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is preparing for a huge year. The series will return soon with its ninth part, JoJolands, and while no official release date has yet been set for the new iteration, Araki has confirmed that he is now working to put everything together. However, there will be a way to get a new patch for the JoJo manga, as Araki will soon be debuting another Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan spinoff story that is set to launch early this year. On top of that, there’s also the latest anime adaptation.
You can currently find JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s final season, Stone Ocean, which is now streaming its first 12 episodes on Netflix. No release date has yet been set for the next wave of episodes, but fans can expect to see them later this year. All the while, the original version of the manga is still available to catch up, and that’s part of the reason the series has reached such a big milestone.
