Author's Note

ArakiJJL2.jpg

The "lion" part of JoJolion's title is a suffix that, to the best of my understanding, can mean "blessed one," "gospel," or "commemorative seal." It's an archaic suffix, and I think it stems from ancient Greece. I combined it with JoJo in order to signify the existence of Josuke, the protagonist, in this world. There's a tragic king in Greek mythology named Pygmalion, as well as a Japanese anime named Evangelion, but I'm not sure if there's any connection there.

「ジョジョリオン」という題名は「…lion」というのが「祝福されるもの」とか「記念の印」とか意味があるそうで、昔のギリシアとかの古い言葉だそうです。「ジョジョ」との合成語で主人公「定助」が、この世に存在する事の意味としてタイトルにさせていただきました。「ピグマリオン」というギリシア神話の悲劇の王様の名前や「エヴァンゲリオン」という日本のアニメ作品がありますが、関係あるかどうかは知りません。
