Learn English with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Learn English with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure! (『ジョジョの奇妙な冒険』で英語を学ぶッ!, "JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken" de Eigo o Manabu!) is an English study guidebook published by Shueisha, translated by Naohiko Kitaura and supervised by heavy metal guitarist, Marty Friedman. It was released physically in Japan on October 24, 2014, with a digital version following on February 20, 2015.
The book features English translations of major moments and lines taken from Parts 1 through 4 of the JoJo manga. A second book titled Learn More English with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure was released on August 26, 2016 with quotes from Parts 5-7, and a third named Learn a Lot of English with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is slated to release on November 24, 2023.
The book is a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure-themed conversational English instruction guide for the Japanese demographic and is supervised by former Megadeth lead guitarist Marty Friedman. While the reader won't learn how to holler as fluently as Joseph, the non-textbook approach will help them pick up on how to speak in the manner of the series' flamboyant characters with a guide to their most quoted lines and exclamations. The book is divided into four sections and contains quotes from Phantom Blood through Diamond is Unbreakable:
- Memorable Scenes: Includes full-on dialogue between characters.
- Emotions: Emotional states such as Fear, Determination, Friendship and Rage.
- Heroes: Memorable quotes from protagonists throughout the series.
- Villains: Memorable quotes from antagonists throughout the series.
Unlike the majority of Japanese books, this one is read from left to right instead of the usual right-to-left format.
