Jojo's bizarre adventure debuted on the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump in 1987 with the introduction of Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando in the Phantom Blood franchise. Although there was only recently an anime adaptation curated by David Production, a highly regarded OVA directed by Satoshi Kon was released in 1993.

Produced by Studio APP la Miniseries consisting of six episodes, adapted part of the events told in the third series, Stardust Crusaders, which followed the Egyptian misadventures of Jotaro Kujo, his grandfather Joseph and their companions, in order to find the villain par excellence of the Joestar family, Dio Brando and to defeat.

The story told differs from what was seen in both the manga and the most recent animated version, but at the time it was still able to conquer numerous viewers. He had been called in to take care of the OVA's direction and script Satoshi Kon, a very successful artist in the industry who passed away 10 years ago on August 24, 2010.

As a reminder, user @Pichuunnn shared on Reddit Some scenes from one of the episodes of the series directed by Konyou can find the post at the bottom of the news. In the video we see a look at the long final battle with Joseph and Kakyoin, who try to sow Dio Brando in the car through the streets of Cairo.
