In the most recent edition of the anime adaptation called Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, Joylne Cujoh, the series’ first female protagonist, leads the charge. When it concerns the Joestar family, stand battles undoubtedly run in the family.

As new episodes of the anime series from David Production are scheduled to premiere on Netflix this fall, Kira Buckland showed her admiration for Jolyne from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure by dressing up as her during the Anime Expo 2022.

At Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure panel at this year’s Anime Expo, Buckland, who provided the voice of Cujoh in Netflix’s English adaptation of the anime, came in full cosplay. Before being cast in the role of Jolyne, which Buckland described as “the biggest dream role of my entire career,” she had already cosplayed the character as a fan of the show. The wig worn was by Diana Soreil, and professional cosplayer Fabrickind created the actor’s outfit.
