JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 2: Battle Tendency To Begin Broadcasting

Being hotly anticipated by fans before it was broadcast, the anime adaptation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has been a huge hit. Part two of the anime will begin in December. Part one ended magnificently and set the stage for part two, titled Battle Tendency, to begin. Part two follows Joseph Joestar, the grandson of Jonathan Joestar, and features episodes brimming with story.

With part two set to begin, the cast and the opening theme have been announced. The protagonist Joseph will be played by Tomokazu Sugita, who claims that his love for JoJo is unrivalled. Rounding out the rest of the new cast is Takuya Satou as the voice of Joseph’s friend Caesar, Atsuko Tanaka as the voice of Caesar’s master Lisa Lisa, and Atsushi Imaruoka as the voice of the popular villain Stroheim. Several members of the cast from part one will be returning as well including Yoji Ueda as the voice of Speedwagon and Ayako Kawasumi as the voice of Erina. We wonder how Kawasumi will play her since Erina has aged some much.

The title for the opening theme for part two of the anime is “Bloody Stream”. The song was written by Saori Kodama, arranged by Toshiyuki Oomori, and performed by Coda. With its jazzy and danceable feel, the song fits nicely with the anime’s witty tempo and heart wrenching story. Continuing on the success of the first part’s opening theme, this opening theme is sure to become a hit as well.
