The JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 release date will have anime fans rushing back to stream JoJo Part 6 Episode 13 – 22 when it comes out on Netflix. That’s right, the second part will have 10 episodes in total. But when will JoJo Stone Ocean Episode 13 come out?

Netflix has officially confirmed that Jolyne Cujoh won’t be coming back in March 2022, the end of the Winter 2020 anime season. While some anime fans were hoping that Stone Ocean would return in Spring 2022, the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean Episode 13 release date has been confirmed to be scheduled for… Fall 2022.

(I can hear the sound of a million anime fans suddenly crying out.)

This announcement was made at Anime Japan 2022: Day One on March 26, 2022. Although the event didn’t have any English subtitles, if you look in the chat section Warner Bros. Japan anime was providing a live translation by summarizing the pertinent comments by the voice actors.

According to anime news leaker Sugoi LITE, the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 2 release date on Netflix is on September 1, 2022. Typically, the Fall 2022 anime season is considered to be October, November, and December, whereas September 2022 is the ending of the Summer 2022 anime season.

How to resolve that apparent contradiction between the official announcement and the leaked info? It’s possible that the worldwide Netflix distribution is early in September 2022, whereas the Japanese TV broadcast is in Fall 2022.

Keep in mind this information hasn’t been substantiated by any official source (and the leaker lists “Episodes 13 – 24”). As such, it should be treated as a rumor and taken with a grain of salt. However, this particular leaker has a history of providing accurate info.

This JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean Part 2 trailer previewed a bit of Episode 13. It was shown at the end of the Japanese TV broadcast of Episode 12 on March 25, 2022. A new version with English subtitles was released the next day.

There’s been a lot of confusion in regards to Netflix’s release schedule for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6, which is JoJo Season 5 in the overall series. JoJo Part 6 Episode 13 is the next in the lineup, but the Netflix Media Center didn’t even provide a hint when JoJo: Stone Ocean premiered on December 1, 2021.

In early September 2021, Netflix stated that JoJo Part 6 will be streaming “monthly” on their platform. But then in early October 2021 Netflix’s media center listing for JoJo Part 6: Stone Ocean was silently updated and it no longer lists the TV show as “releasing monthly”.

By December 14, 2021, the Netflix Anime Twitter account was still advertising JoJo Stone Ocean as “streaming” without providing any status update on the continuation.

On April 15, 2022, Netflix further announced that JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 Episodes 13 through 22 are being released on Netflix as a batch again. Oddly enough, the older trailer clearly stated, “Episodes 13 – 24 coming 2022,” but the newer Netflix Geeked tweet apparently reduced the number of episodes down to 10.

This article provides everything that is known about Netflix’s JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 (JoJo Part 6 Episode 13 / JoJo Stone Ocean Episode 13 / JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean Episode 13) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

JoJo Part 6 Episode 13 release date means the ending is in 2023?

Animation studio David Production returned for producing JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 5. The company has produced all of the anime seasons since the series began in 2012.

As of the last update, Netflix, Studio David Production, or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 release date. Nor has the total number of episodes for Stone Ocean been announced. But we do know that there will be at least 22 episodes and the JoJo Part 6 Episode 13 release date is in Fall 2022.

Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information.

The first 12 episodes of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 5 were streaming internationally first and then weekly TV broadcasting in Japan began on January 7, 2022, the Winter 2022 anime season.

The Anime Japan 2022 announcement means that David Productions plans JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 to be released as a split-cour anime.

What’s a “cour,” you might ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

A “split-cour” is where a single anime season takes a multi-month break before resuming TV broadcasting.

Assuming that Netflix continues to release the episodes first, the JoJo Stone Ocean Episode 13 release date will be in Fall 2022 and then Japanese TV stations will begin broadcasting JoJo Stone Ocean Part 2 a little later in September 2022.

In Japan, the JoJo Stone Ocean Episode 22 release date will be in late December 2022 at the earliest, although the finale could potentially be pushed back to early January 2023 if the TV time slot scheduling conflicts with Christmas and New Year’s Even broadcasting.

Therefore, the JoJo Stone Ocean Part 3 release date will definitely be in 2023.

JoJo Stone Ocean Part 3 is likely the ending

The ending of Stone Ocean has caused JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 6 to be one of the most controversial parts in the entire manga series by creator Hirohiko Araki. Without getting into major spoilers, the final episodes to Stone Ocean will be quite shocking since the bittersweet ending changes the entire JoJo continuity as a sort of setup for the newer manga parts, JoJo Part 7: Steel Ball Run, JoJo Part 8: JoJolion, and JoJo Part 9: JoJo Lands.

The JoJo Stone Ocean story arc ran from 1999 to 2003 in the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series. It’s 17 volumes in total, consisting of Volumes 64 through 80 in the entire series.

All of the previous anime TV parts have had multiple cours. The longest was the Stardust Crusaders arc with 48 episodes in total, while Diamond Is Unbreakable and Golden Wind were both 39 episodes each.

The first Netflix release, which ended with JoJo Stone Ocean Episode 12, adapted the first 50 chapters. JoJo Stone Ocean Episode 13 should pick up the story again in Chapter 51, which is titled “Kiss of Love & Revenge”.

Since the Stone Ocean manga had 158 chapters, David Production could adapt the story as a three-cour JoJo Season 5 with around 36 to 38 episodes. If it’s the latter case, then the second and third cours would have 13 episodes each.

That means JoJo Stone Ocean Part 3 will finish the story with its epic conclusion. Stay tuned!

Its definitely clickbait, but the speculation about when it might release is actually very useful.

It’s too bad they’re still being so silent on the topic, I appreciate the speculation though since we’re receiving so little information. I’m mildly disappointed about the delays given previous release experiences. I’m all for alternative production schedules now that audiovisual media doesn’t have to rely on older models like television production to be financially successful. I’m just a little pensive at the prospect of most series I follow having a release schedule akin to Steven Universe. I just don’t have the type of personality to get super hyped about fractional season premiers, and while I know everybody isn’t like me I imagine eventually there’s going to be a problem tracking the popularity of shows if a chunk of the targetted audience never contributes to release day statistics.
