JoJo's Bizarre Encyclopedia (ジョジョの奇妙な百科事典, JoJo no Kimyō na Hakkajiten) is a website dedicated to the works of the manga artist Hirohiko Araki and related media. It is primarily focused on his biggest series, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
The site was founded on October 14, 2019, and officially launched to the public on November 23, 2019. However, the site has 11 years of history prior to this on a former wiki owned by a company. As JoJo fans throughout the world, we united to work on that site for free to spread our enjoyment of the franchise and archive whatever we could. Throughout the years, that site started going downhill due to events beyond our control, so our small community editing there contemplated moving to our own site. Although we initially believed it to be an impossible task, we persevered and were capable of moving the content that we wrote for over eight years there onto our new site here.
Since moving, we've had the freedom to follow our own rules and implement new features and extensions as much as we want. The advertisements and donations we receive serve to help us pay for hosting the site each month. Our work on this site is a hobby to provide the fans of the series with the most accurate, cited, and up-to-date information. We have interviewed several notable people related to the franchise, including Reki Taki, Satoshi Kurusu, Yuki Kikuchi, Kira Buckland, and more.
While anyone is free to edit with an account, we moderate the content to ensure the information is factual and legitimate. Nonetheless, it's possible that things may slip by us, so we hope that our readers would either fix it themselves should they come across an error, or report the error to us on either our message walls, Twitter, or Discord server.
We're grateful for all the support we've received since creating this site, and glad to see both old and new fans of the series working together to make the site great. Thank you!

As an editor, I am the "workhorse" type. I do simple types of edits but I edit a lot, I do a bit of maintenance too. Currently translating articles into French. Main weakness is my English grammar.

I joined the wiki in March 2020 as suggested from MetallicaKaiser where I was always keeping in touch with him about findings I had, he told me I can go to his and Vish's JoJoWiki (here) to edit and post whatever pages needed additions.
In early August 2019 I started my journey on archiving and scanning anything related to the lost 2007 Phantom Blood Movie, and I couldn't be happier knowing that others can see what I'm archiving. With it having come to a dead-end for days and months, I decided to divert my attention onto archiving anything for the 1993 & 2000 OVA 's and once again I managed to find a lot of art & advertisements unique to certain magazines. Asides from JoJo I am a huge lover for the 1989 series Berserk and I'm always scanning rare artwork as there's barely any good quality images online.
I joined the Wiki by chance after finding the Discord server link while I was looking at Steel Ball Run pages, and I haven't stopped editing since. I like to type anything in general with my handy six-year-old laptop so I spend time editing here. I simply help update pages and/or add images, which are the least I could do. Right now I'm doing my best to expand and clean up the Wiki as much as I can with my current knowledge of the franchise.

Regarding the wiki, I started editing in May of 2021 but had been using the wiki for some time beforehand. I tend to work on random pages/categories and enjoy working on obscure stuff when possible. Notably, my time editing for the wiki has only strengthened my enjoyment of certain aspects of the series, such as the numerous visual references.
