Viz finally announced their release of the JJBA part 4 manga! Set for a May 7 release. Preorders are up on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2WChDs2 and Rightstuf: http://shrsl.com/1f9qk.

Since there's no Jojonium release for part 4 in Japan, I guess they decided to go with a different look for the cover? I kinda wish they'd tried to make it look more like the others but oh well...

Huh.. (checks wikipedia) and it is on it's 8th storyline now, and has been going since 1987? Impressive. (I mean, I watched the OVA when it came out back in 1993, so when I saw teens talking about it over the last few years I was impressed.)

Yeah, the TV anime that started up in 2013 was what finally got it to hit big in the US. Viz had previously only released Part 3, but they've been sloooowly getting the rest of the series released here. (It's still ongoing, too, yup! Araki now is so popular that he's allowed to just put out new chapters whenever he has the energy, so it's not a "monthly" title in Japan anymore.)
