Author's Note

Link to this sectionAuthor's Note
The protagonist of JoJo Part 6 is a woman. Why go with a woman? Therein lies the problem.
Since she's a JoJo protagonist, she's got to be tough enough to not get disheartened even if she gets punched in the face. Sometimes she might be crawling through a ditch, or she might be falling from the top of a building with her legs wide open. It's a bit of a tight setup for a woman. But thinking about the differences in contrast, it actually seemed very interesting. Furthermore, she could be a person with great humanity like the Virgin Mary. I felt I just had to make the protagonist a woman.

  • In 2020, Hirohiko Araki altered the inking on one of the female inmates in the fifth chapter, and the banana she is eating was redrawn into a sandwich to avoid allusions to racial caricatures and blackface. This change was published in Shueisha's reprinted tankobons of this volume in Japan, Ivrea's Spanish release, and VIZ Media's digital chapter in 2022 and volume release in 2023.
