Get ready for some JOJOKES with the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Twitch marathon

You think it was VIZ Media’s doing, but it was me, Dio! Get ready for some epic action as the VIZ Media Twitch channel will stream the first three seasons of the hit anime Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure starting today until August 25 at 10 AM PST, with an encore stream hitting the channel at 3 PM PST. The marathon stream comes after the news that VIZ Media will distribute the upcoming fourth season of the anime, Golden Wind, in the west after the Japanese October release.

The first three seasons of the acclaimed multigenerational action adventure property begin streaming today through August 25 on VIZ Media’s Twitch channel: twitch.tv/viz. The 113 episodes on Twitch constitute the first three seasons and multiple story arcs of the series (PHANTOM BLOOD, BATTLE TENDENCY, STARDUST CRUSADERS, and DIAMOND IS UNBREAKABLE). Fans can enjoy the subtitled stream and interact with the vast online community starting at 10AM PST each day with an encore broadcast of the stream at 3PM PST. The stream will only be available for audiences in US and Canada.

JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE is based on Hirohiko Araki’s critically acclaimed Shonen Jump manga series that depicts the multigenerational exploits of the heroic Joestar family and their never-ending battle against evil. In the anime series, the Aztecs – the people of the sun – once prospered in ancient Mexico. They had a bizarre stone mask that brought eternal life and the power of a domineering ruler to he who wore it, but at some point, the mask disappeared without a trace. Years later, in the late 19th Century, when men’s lifestyles and outlooks on life were quickly changing, Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando meet, and the stone mask binds them to a rather curious fate…

“Twitch’s gamer community has a long-standing affinity for anime based on the passion seen during ​anime-related ​shows, movies, and games streamed on our service,” said Jane Weedon, Director of Business Development at Twitch. “​Thanks to VIZ, one of the most popular brands in the anime space​, we’re able to continue to feed that passion with over a hundred episodes of ​JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE.”​
