Fairouz Ai as Jolyne Cujoh
Congratulations on the 10th anniversary…!!
Above all, I have nothing but gratitude for everyone who has continued to create the JoJo anime for the past 10 years…!! My youth was spent together with JoJo!!
For animating Jolyne and everyone, bringing them to ‘life’… I truly… thank you… I can’t find any other words to express it.
I’ll never forget the day when I watched the first episode of Phantom Blood as it was broadcast, with shaking hands and tears flowing from the overwhelming emotion. I am truly, truly happy that they have produced the anime up to Stone Ocean!
I love how the JoJo animation series clearly conveys the di molto dedication of the staff for the original work and fans. The anime-original scenes are filled with love!
In order to weave a ‘thread’ of hope for the next generation, please continue to support the JoJo animation series!
Mutsumi Tamura as Ermes Costello
When I was in elementary school, I read Stone Ocean, and being able to play Ermes now truly moves me!
I believe it’s a blessing that the anime has continued for 10 years. It’s all thanks to the staff, the voice actors, and the audience who supported me!!!
I hope that everyone will continue to love JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure in the future! Congratulations on the 10th anniversary!
Mariya Ise as Foo Fighters
Jolyne taught F.F. the true meaning and wonder of ‘living.’ I, too, was able to gain invaluable experiences and lessons from my time on the JoJo project, alongside F.F. and my amazing colleagues.
‘Memories give courage to our cells’ is my favorite line. I believe that past memories truly make us stronger.
I think that this story will continue to be passed down, warming the hearts of many people and never fading.
Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of the anime!
Atsumi Tanezaki as Emporio Alnino
I am very happy and honored to be a part of the 10 years of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure TV anime.
The time I spent as Emporio, the overwhelming passion at the recording site, and the gratifying pressure in the final episodes are things I will never forget for the rest of my life.
During the recordings, I was so happy and had so much fun, it was truly a great experience. Congratulations on the 10th anniversary!!
Yuichiro Umehara as Weather Report
Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime.
I hadn’t moved to Tokyo yet when the first season aired, and I enjoyed it as a viewer. I’m very fortunate to have been able to participate in that same JoJo series and to have played Weather Report.
The passion of the staff and the cast involved was overwhelming. Please continue to support the beloved JoJo in the future.
Daisuke Namikawa as Narciso Anasui
Congratulations on the 10th anniversary!!
It has been an intensely passionate work for 10 years, and I was allowed to be a part of it!
In order to make each moment the best and to pass on the enthusiasm we’ve inherited, I worked hard, even when it made my throat sore!!
I hope that the feelings I submerged into it have reached everyone who watched it!!
Tomokazu Seki as Enrico Pucci
Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime!
I am delighted to have been able to participate in the project at this specific timing. Despite feeling various pressures, I enjoyed and seized the opportunity given to me.
I am grateful to have my name engraved as a part of the history of the JoJo anime, and I look forward to its future development.
