JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run (Part 7) Anime Adaptation Rumored To Be In Production

According to leaks David Production Studios will be at the forefront of this production.


Twitter’s renowned anime leaker, @oecuf0, revealed on April 27, 2024, that the much awaited Jojo Part 7 anime titled “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run” is currently in production by David Productions.

This is a big announcement for Jojo fans, despite Netflix’s questionable release pattern. Part 6, which was titled “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean” aired on Dec 1, 2021, and ended a year later, on Dec 1, 2022. So fans have not had any animated Jojo content for over a year.

Part 6 ended with the conclusive battle between Jolyne Cujoh and Enrico Pucci with Emporio and Narciso Anasui helping  Jolyne finish off the villain, who has the power to accelerate time. This power made the universe literally shift to another time cycle and in the end, Emporio meets the reincarnations of the rest of the cast, now living different but happier lives.

Part 7 or JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run is set in an alternate universe in the late 19th century. The story revolves around a transcontinental horse race across America, where contestants vie for a grand prize. The main protagonist, Johnny Joestar, a former horse racing prodigy who became paralyzed, enters the race seeking a miracle cure. Along the way, he encounters Gyro Zeppeli, a skilled executioner, and they form an unlikely alliance. Together, they face off against various adversaries, including other racers with supernatural abilities, as they uncover a conspiracy surrounding the race.

MAL Describes Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures, Stardust Crusaders:

Years after an ancient evil was salvaged from the depths of the sea, Joutarou Kuujou sits peacefully within a Japanese jail cell.

He’s committed no crime yet demands he not be released, believing he’s been possessed by an evil spirit capable of harming those around him.

Concerned for her son, Holy Kuujou asks her father, Joseph Joestar, to convince Joutarou to leave the prison.

Joseph informs his grandson that the “evil spirit” is in fact something called a “stand,” the physical manifestation of one’s fighting spirit, which can adopt a variety of deadly forms.

After a fiery brawl with Joseph’s friend Muhammad Avdol, Joutarou is forced out of his cell and begins learning how to control the power of his stand.

However, when a Stand awakens within Holy and threatens to consume her in 50 days, Joutarou, his grandfather, and their allies must seek out and destroy the immortal vampire responsible for her condition.

They must travel halfway across the world to Cairo, Egypt, and, along the way, do battle with ferocious Stand users set on thwarting them.

If Joutarou and his allies fail in their mission, humanity is destined for a grim fate.
