Set One: In the eternal struggle against evil, the saga of the Joestar family is legend! Based on Hirohiko Araki's groundbreaking manga, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure follows the Joestars in a multi-generational battle to the death against the forces of darkness.
Set in Victorian England, "Phantom Blood" chronicles the origin of this tale of hope and slaughter. Jonathan Joestar lives a life of aristocratic privilege until his father takes in an orphaned boy named Dio Brando.
Though they are rivals from the first, events turn darker when Dio discovers a mysterious Stone Mask that grants its wearer terrible power-at the cost of a vampiric curse! Jonathan must then realize his own latent powers to defeat his newly immortal brother.
"Battle Tendency," set decades after "Phantom Blood," follows Joseph Joestar, the grandson of Jonathan, after he learns a second Stone Mask has been found in Mexico. It now falls on his broad, muscle-bound shoulders to prevent an ancient evil from rising to conquer the Earth!
Set Two: Set forty-nine years after "Battle Tendency," the saga of the Joestar bloodline continues with the bizarre trek of the teenage Jotaro as he is thrust into the supernatural world of Stands. Armed with knowledge of his family's storied past and unique fighting abilities thanks to his grandfather, Jotaro learns his mother's connection to the Joestar family's nemesis DIO-long buried at sea-is slowly killing her. To save her and stop DIO's plans of complete Joestar eradication, Jotaro and crew set out to locate and destroy DIO.
Meeting them at every step is DIO's own Stand assassins, eager to slaughter each and every member of the Joestar crew. The multigenerational struggle against evil may be far from over, but the Joestars are more ready than ever.
Set Three: Having crossed continents and cheated death, Jotaro, Joseph, and crew finally arrive in Egypt to root out the charismatic evil threatening the Joestar lineage and the world. Fighting Stand with Stand, the ever-clever Joestars are put to the ultimate test as a bizarre new army of adversaries hailing from the Egyptian pantheon strike in ways more brutal and outrageous than ever before. Thankfully, a new ally has arrived to assist the humans. The question is, can the team come together in time to unravel the mystery of DIO's Stand?
