  • As directors, both Suzuki and Naokatsu Tsuda were big fans of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga prior to their positions on the TV Anime. Tsuda notes that he likely would have refused the director role had Suzuki not joined him, as trying to capture "both the strength and fun of the original manga" would have been impossible on his own.[3]
