JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 ダイヤモンドは砕けない JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Daiyamondo wa Kudakenai) is the third season of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure TV Anime, produced by David Production.
Season three adapts the fourth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Diamond is Unbreakable. It was confirmed at the end of "The Last Crusaders" event for the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders anime in Tokyo on October 24, 2015. The series aired from April 1, 2016 to December 23, 2016. An original video animation titled Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe was made available to those who purchased every Blu-Ray disc release of the series.
On July 6, 2018, it was confirmed that the English dub would air on Adult Swim. The dubbed season broadcast on Toonami on Saturday, August 18, 2018 until June 8, 2019. On May 26, 2021, the season was made available on Netflix.
- Reflecting Araki's gradual-yet-dramatic change of art style in the original manga, season three features different character designs from those of season one and two; this season incorporates various elements from the three art styles that the manga took on during Part 4's progression.
- This choice of art direction also provides a contrast with the previous season, which relied on the character designs present at the end of each part (save for Iggy, who underwent the gradual change in design that was present in the original manga) for its adaptation.
- According to character designer and chief animation director, Terumi Nishii, pleasing the “Boy Love” (Yaoi) fans was taken into account when designing the characters, though they retain her regular style.
- In a curious departure from the other seasons, this is the first season to have the episodes without their post-credits teasers for the next episode. Instead, the teasers are uploaded to the official website.
- For an unknown reason, Love Deluxe, Echoes ACT 2, Achtung Baby, Ratt, Boy II Man and Killer Queen Bites The Dust are the only Stands to never receive stat info cards.
