JOJO A-GO!GO! (JOJO(ジョジョ) A()-GO!(ゴー)GO!(ゴー), JoJo A Gō Gō) is an artbook written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki and Lucky Land Communications.

A memorial to the completed publication of Vento Aureo, the artbook features illustrations from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, particularly from Phantom Blood to Vento Aureo.

Summary

The box features a wheel that can be rotated in order to change the faces of the image depicted on the front. Included in the package is the artbook, as well as an encyclopedia of Stands and a detailed book on the author.

VIZ Media announced the English version of the artbook on February 2, 2024. It is planned to release on September 17, 2024.[2] The English version of the artbook will seemingly only include the first book of the package set and lack the Stand data book and the book focused on Hirohiko Araki. This is due to the listed page count being substantially shorter than the original release in Japan as well as the book being advertised soley as an illustrations one.

The book contains colored illustrations from the covers of manga chapters and volumes featured in Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency, Stardust Crusaders, Diamond is Unbreakable, and Vento Aureo. Other illustrations drawn by Araki, promoted in other media such as video games, tributes, or merchandise, are also included.

The front portion of the book presents an illustrated dance party portraying numerous characters and Stands dancing with each other.

Araki's own personal favorites are also included, judged by function and design. The back of the book contains a section called "Standlogy," which explains Stands in further detail.

Trivia

  • The "Let's Dance!" catchphrase present at the beginning of the art book is a possible callback to the name of the fashion shoot:[5] Let's Rock! which most of the character's dance poses were referenced from.
