In 1868, Dario Brando saves the life of an English nobleman named George Joestar, which begins the story of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. After Dario’s death, George takes in Dario’s son Dio, expecting that his acts will allow him to fulfill Dario’s debt.
Dio, on the other hand, is dissatisfied with his current situation and plans to steal the Joestar mansion one day. He sets out to destroy George and his son Jonathan ‘JoJo’ Joestar, brandishing his Aztec stone mask loaded with magical powers, which starts off a chain of events that would last for years.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure follows JoJo and his ancestors on their mysterious journey. There’s always a strange adventure in store in this anime!

7. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6: Stone Ocean
It has five seasons on television, with a sixth set to premiere in December. There are three OVAs and one film in the franchise. Jojo has 152 episodes in total, with 0 fillers, across five seasons and one film. As a result, the series’ filler percentage is now 0%.
There are no filler episodes in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure because the original material was already done. However, there are some modifications. Due to its slice-of-life format, Part 4 of the franchise features specific episodes that stretch a lot of scenes due to pace concerns and may be seen as poorer.
To summarize, while a chronological timetable for Jojo’s odd trip does not exist, it is recommended that one follow the release sequence. Furthermore, because numerous events occur in the related series, OVAs, and movies, none must be skipped.
