Author's Note

The JOJOLands is Part 9 of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. We find our ninth protagonist in a fifteen-year-old boy. I consider fifteen to be the age where a person's feelings toward the future are the most vibrant. As the author, my hope is that the protagonist will mature and develop admirably over time. On another note, within this story you will see the name "November Rain," the root "novem" being Latin for the number 9. At some point, the months of July and August were inserted into the middle of the calendar, causing November to become the eleventh month.
『The JOJOLands』は『ジョジョの奇妙な冒険』の第9部です。第9番目の主人公は15歳の少年です。
15歳は人生の中で最も未来を想う心が強い年齢だと思います。作者として、立派に成長して上って行って欲しいと願います。
因みに「ノーヴェンバー・レイン」という名前が物語中に出てきますが、「NOVEM」とは「9」という数のこと。7月と8月が途中に入ってきたので、暦で11月の場所になったらしいです。
