JoJo's Bizarre Words (ジョジョの奇妙な名言集 JoJo no Kimyō na Meigenshū) is a book set featuring different quotes found in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.

The set was released as part of the celebration of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's 25th Anniversary. Volume 1 contains the quotes featured from parts 1-3, while the second volume has quotes from Part's 4-8.


The two books contain several colored pages of different manga panels found in different sections of the mangas. These manga panels are chosen based on the dialogue that is said in them.

The last portion of the books features a behind-the-scenes commentary from Hirohiko Araki and others, discussing the origins behind some dialogue and the overall writing process for the series.[1]


Author's Note

JoJo's Bizarre Words Preface

I write my manga lines with the hope of "conveying" my thoughts. When I first drew a Stand, I found it frustrating because it was hard to convey the concept. But because it was a manga with pictures and dialogues, I was able to convey it in the end. If this had been a movie, animation, or a novel, I think the nuance of the message would have been a little different. I don't try to write good lines from the beginning, because lines are born from the desire to convey something. Therefore, I feel embarrassed when I say to myself, "This is a great line," because I feel like I'm taking advantage of the situation. I think it is the reader's sense of value that determines whether or not a chosen line is a "quote". You can be moved by the lines of JoJo, you can think they are cool, or you can laugh at them. I'll leave that up to you. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of JoJo, it's nice to have my work touched in a different way. So please enjoy the world of JoJo's words and deeds.
