JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has seen the Joestars travel to numerous countries on their travels, and while we haven’t seen many crossovers between the Stand users and the anime characters that populate the medium, Hirohiko Araki’s anime franchise has plenty of product. -crossovers shared in his past. Now the generations of Joestar are teaming up with the chocolate makers at Godiva to help create a new line of candy that will bring all of the franchise’s top players back together.
Currently, the main story that catches the attention of Joestar fans is that of Netflix Stone Ocean anime adaptation, with David Production once again returning to the television series that recently celebrated its tenth anniversary following the seasons including: Phantom Blood, Battle Tendens, Stardust Crusaders, Diamond Is Unbreakable, Golden Wind, and the latest prison-focused run. The upcoming candy line will arrive in Japan on November 1, with “Godiva x JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” looking to sell both six-piece and twelve-piece packs. While each candy line doesn’t focus on a particular season, the chocolate is arranged based on popular symbols that appeared throughout the season, including Dio’s stone mask, the hand symbol on Jotaro’s hat, and Jolyne’s patented heart.
All Star Battle, chocolate version
The JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure x Godiva crossover shared a first look at the chocolate packaging and designs of the candies themselves, with the confectionery producers modeling their products from the world of the Joestars:
However, the final episodes of Stone Ocean will arrive on Netflix this winter JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s manga has yet to reveal when Hirohiko Araki’s next entry, JoJo Lands, will arrive. With both Steel Ball Run and JoJolion taking place in a new reality different from the one that anime fans introduced to the Joestars, it might not be too surprising to see the trend continue in the upcoming Part Nine.
Now that the Stone Ocean has been split into three parts for the anime adaptation, the final episodes will be some of the wildest installments of the anime franchise yet. Nothing will ever be the same for the Joestars as Jolyne ends her fight against Pucci and his dream of reaching heaven.
