JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 ファントムブラッド) is a live-action musical adaptation of Phantom Blood that ran from February 12 to April 14, 2024, closing after a run of two months. The musical was performed at the Imperial Theater in Tokyo, Sapporo Cultural Arts Theater Hitaru in Sapporo, and the Hyogo Performing Arts Center in Nishinomiya, Japan.

Tsuneyasu Motoyoshi wrote the script, and Ney Hasegawa, director of the Fujiyama Anette theater company, directed the musical. Dove Attia and Rod Janois, known for their work on the LUPIN musical, composed the music.[3]

The musical was originally scheduled to premiere on February 6, 2024. However, on February 4, 2024, it was announced that the performances from February 6 to 8 were cancelled due to delays. On February 8, 2024, it was announced that the performances from February 10 to 11 were cancelled as well.[4]

Pre-orders for the Blu-ray release of the musical were announced in the May 2024 issue of Ultra Jump on April 18, 2024. "Sunlight Yellow" and "Midnight Blue" versions of the Blu-ray are available, each featuring one of Jonathan and Zeppeli's double cast actors. Both versions, as well as a limited-edition box set containing a bonus disc, are planned to release sometime in December 2024.[2]

Summary

The story revolves around the mysterious Stone Mask excavated from Mexico and follows the adventurous tale of the fateful destinies of two young men. Set in England in the 19th century, Jonathan Joestar, nicknamed "JoJo", is the only son of the noble Joestar family. His father, Sir Joestar, raises him under strict yet warm guidance to become a "true gentleman". The Joestar household adopts Dio Brando, who was born and raised in the slums, believing that Dio's deceased father, Dario Brando, had saved Sir Joestar's life. Sir Joestar raises the two as equals, and they grow up strong.

However, Dio schemes to take everything from JoJo; his beloved dog Danny, his friends, his first love Erina Pendleton, and even the Joestar family's wealth. Realizing Dio's evil intentions, JoJo heads to the slums of London, Ogre Street. With the help of his new ally Robert E. O. Speedwagon, they drag Wang Chan back to the Joestar mansion because of his involvement in Dio's conspiracy. In a desperate situation, Dio harnesses the power of the mysterious Stone Mask, displayed in the Joestar house, to gain immense strength.

To counter the overpowering Dio, JoJo endures the rigorous training of Will Anthonio Zeppeli to master the "Ripple Technique". Both of them set out on a journey with Speedwagon to settle the score with Dio. Meanwhile, Dio, with the likes of Jack the Ripper and legendary knights under his command, builds an evil empire and awaits JoJo's arrival.[1]

Manga/Musical Differences

  • The story is framed as an older Speedwagon's recorded retelling, and original narration is provided by him throughout the musical.
  • Dario Brando becomes a recurring character who haunts his son Dio throughout the story after his death, appearing whenever the latter's dark nature rises to the surface. He first appears after Dio hits Erina for "Voice Calling from the Darkness," and serves a similar role in the first two reprises of the number. In "Dio's World <Reprise>," Dio turns on and metaphorically strangles his father's memory just before being confronted by Jonathan.
  • Inspector Archer is a close friend of George's, and frequently visits the mansion. He is also shown to be the friend who tells George about Jonathan and Dio's rugby game.
  • Poco, Dire, Straizo, and Tonpetty are entirely cut from the story.
  • Dario's discovery of the Joestar family's carriage accident is shown immediately after the Aztec sacrifice scene.
  • The Aztecs do Zeppeli's "Memetaa!" pose from the "Resolve of the Ripple" number towards the end of the sacrifice scene and facing away from the audience.
  • Dio is shown being teased on his way home before his final conversation with Dario.
  • Dio's visit to his father's grave is replaced by the number "Dio," though the grave is shown later during "Voice Calling from the Darkness <Reprise>."
  • Dio now kicks Danny instinctually when the dog jumps toward him.
  • Several of Dio's early internal monologues about claiming the Joestar fortune for himself are removed.
  • George's teachings toward Jonathan and Dio include a brief history lesson about two dark knights named Bruford and Tarkus.
  • Jonathan defeats the champion of his friends' boxing ring prior to his match with Dio, instead of being slated to face champion Mark Watkin before Dio enters.
  • The scene where Dio "borrows" Jonathan's watch is removed.
  • Erina leaves a basket with apples in addition to grapes and Jonathan's handkerchief. Apples are not toxic to dogs unlike grapes. She also later praises Danny for being able to separate the core and the flesh of the apple on his own.
  • Dio and George's conversation about the Stone Mask is shortened, and the scene of Jonathan finding out about Dio's kiss with Erina is cut.
  • George happens upon Jonathan and Dio's battle just when Dio pulls out his knife, and merely orders both boys to bed instead of berating Jonathan about his ungentlemanly behavior.
  • Dio is briefly shown comforting Jonathan regarding Danny's death.
  • A flashback shows Dio's mother, still alive but bedridden by sickness. An alcoholic Dario is shown beating both her and his own son.
  • After being thrown down the stairs by Jonathan, Dio falls to his knees to beg Jonathan to stay and reconsider before resolving to murder him.
  • The scene of Dio discovering the mask's spikes is shortened, with the details of his plot left implied.
  • Dio's live test subject no longer punches a crater in a nearby wall. His death is visually represented as the Aztec tribe pulling him into darkness.
  • An original scene shows Zeppeli seeking the stone mask in a secondhand merchant's shop.
  • An original scene of Jonathan's return to the mansion has been added, with Inspector Archer apprehending Wang Chan and telling Jonathan about the time George forgave Dario for stealing his ring, rather than telling it to Speedwagon after George's death.
  • The number "Zeppeli's Notes" forms an original scene where Zeppeli explains his history with the stone mask and his resolve to destroy it.
  • Dio now delivers his climactic line in "Born Evil" with hesitation, briefly remembering his mother in some performances.
  • One of Archer's officers notices the disappearance of Dio's corpse rather than Speedwagon.
  • Jonathan is shown hiding Dio's knife prior to their confrontation. Instead of moving toward the roof, the two fight while Jonathan is climbing a wall, and Jonathan ultimately kicks Dio off the wall rather than himself.
  • Speedwagon's two visits to Jonathan in the hospital room are combined. Speedwagon's arrival with his friends is not shown, and Jonathan's reunion with Erina occurs just after she turns Speedwagon away.
  • Dio's seduction of Jack the Ripper becomes more and more visually extreme as the show's run continues,[6] eventually being represented as him groping his new servant.
  • Zeppeli's introduction no longer involves him mysteriously changing positions or jumping with his legs crossed. When he strikes the "Memetaa!" Frog, instead of splitting the rock beneath the frog, he causes the frog's limbs to briefly extend.
  • Zeppeli sticks one of the flowers Jonathan grows on a tree branch to his jacket.
  • Jonathan tells Erina that he's leaving to take care of business instead of saying nothing.
  • The number "Stars Drawn Together" forms an original scene where Erina expresses her hope for Jonathan's return.
  • Wang Chan is now introduced chasing Speedwagon before Jonathan and Zeppeli come to his aid. After Jonathan punches him, Wang Chan briefly taunts Jonathan before beginning to feel the heat of the Ripple. Speedwagon chases him as he runs off.
  • Zeppeli telling Jonathan about his father's fate now takes place after Jonathan's battle with Wang Chan, rather than on their first day of training.
  • Jonathan and company's first confrontation with Dio is changed dramatically: rather than Jonathan defeating Jack alone, the group now follows him back to Dio, who sics his zombies on the group and escapes. Jonathan then defeats Jack with a Sunlight Yellow Overdrive. The group soon catches up to Dio, who faces Zeppeli as he does in the manga.
  • After Dio pushes Jonathan and Zeppeli back, Speedwagon attempts to attack him with a knife, but is intimidated by his glare and retreats back to his friends.
  • Dio's summoning of Bruford and Tarkus is preceded by the number "Knight's Pride, Gentleman's Heart," in which George gives a lesson on the full history of the two knights to his sons in a flashback.
  • Zeppeli begins fighting Tarkus while Jonathan fights Bruford, and both fights occur mostly off-stage. Speedwagon, sick of being on the sidelines, sings the number "Tomorrow is Now" as he works up the courage to assist Zeppeli with his knife and the heat of his chest. The hammer Speedwagon uses in the manga is cut entirely.
  • The name of Bruford's sword, Luck, no longer appears on its hilt. As such, Bruford only rechristens the sword as "Pluck" verbally, being unable to inscribe it with his blood.
  • After Jonathan receives Pluck, Dio briefly reappears to taunt Jonathan's newfound empathy for his foe. Zeppeli imbues the flower he plucked earlier with Ripple and throws it into Dio's eye, forcing him to retreat.
  • Adams, Doobie, Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam are cut from the musical. Instead, Jonathan confronts Dio immediately after Zeppeli's death.
  • Wang Chan is present for the entirety of Jonathan and Dio's battle at the castle. After Dio falls off the balcony, Wang Chan jumps after his master.
  • The narration explaining that Jonathan can reject Dio's vampiric extract is entirely absent.
  • Jonathan no longer passes out after Dio's apparent death. Dio decapitating himself is not shown.
  • Speedwagon is the only character present to see Jonathan and Erina off on their honeymoon.
  • Father Styx is cut from the musical entirely.
  • Instead of being attacked by Dio's veins and stabbing him with shrapnel, Jonathan pushes Erina to safety before running up to Dio to stab his neck with her hairpin.
  • The explosion of Jonathan's honeymoon ship is not shown. Jonathan and Dio are shown plummeting into the sea.
  • Jonathan and Dio's spirits are shown reuniting and passing on, both accepting that their fates have become one.

I never dreamed I'd be involved with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure in this way, and I can't hide my surprise and joy. Moreover, I'm truly honored to play the charismatic Dio Brando from the JoJo series. I've always loved Part 1 and revisited the original work countless times.

With the unique possibilities of a musical, we'll unfold a JoJo world like no one has ever seen before. Please look forward to it!

I've enjoyed JoJo's Bizarre Adventure since my middle school days. Standing on its stage is beyond a dream come true, and it still hasn't fully sunk in. I can't even count how many times I've been encouraged and inspired by quotes emanating from the characters' philosophies. With an extraordinary sense of excitement and fear, I'll give my all to fully dive into the incredibly beautiful, dangerous, and mysterious world of adventure that Araki-sensei has created.

I believed that one day there would be a stage adaptation and have been eagerly waiting for this day for nearly 10 years since I started acting. JoJo is that much a part of my blood and oxygen. It has been both a mental and physical sustenance in all my artistic endeavors! I'm convinced that the reason I can participate in this work is due to a very bizarre yet somewhat inevitable form of gravity. If I hadn't made that choice back then, if I had continued doing this, or if I had no choice but to give up on that... all those things are what led me here today. I want to take pride in the life I've lived.
—Jumpei Shimada[1]
いつの日か舞台化の時が来る。そう信じて役者を始め約10年、この日を待ち侘びていた。それ程までに“ジョジョ”という作品は私の血であり酸素であり、あらゆる表現活動において精神的肉体的な糧となった!!この場に参加させて頂けるのも、とても奇妙だがある種必然とも言える引力のおかげだと確信している。あの時それを選択していなかったら、これをやり続けていたから、或いはあれを諦めざるを得なかったから、今私はここにいる。歩んできた人生に誇りを持ちたい。

PBMusicalDario.png
In 1987, when the serialization started, I was 26 years old. I'm an impatient person who can't wait a week, so I was never hooked on weekly manga. After being cast, I read from the first chapter onward and felt, "As Dio's father, I apologize to the entire Joestar family for raising such a son." It made me realize how crucial one's upbringing environment is. However, I'll wholeheartedly portray the worst and most foolish father, keeping the belief that "one person's misfortune makes another person happy" close to my heart. Wahahahaha!
—Kong Kuwata[1]
連載スタートの1987年、26歳。欲しがり屋で、1週間待ってられへん性格なので、週刊漫画にはハマっていませんでした。出演が決まり第一話から読ませていただき、ディオの父親として「こんな息子に育ててしまい、ジョースター家の皆々様、申し訳ございません」。生育環境はホンマ大切な事やと感じました。が、『ある人間の不幸ってのは、ある人間を幸福にする』という信条を胸に最悪で愚かな父親を力一杯演じます。ウワッハハハハーッ!
