The time has finally arrived! The Diamond is Unbreakable blu-ray batch is here! This release has been a REALLY long time in the making, and I am so happy to finally be sharing it with the world. Although we’re releasing it much later than originally planned, I’m glad to have it out before Part 5 begins airing this October. As we’ve stated in the past, real life obligations have become much more pressing since we began working on Jojo, but we’re still just as passionate as ever about working on it. As you can probably guess, this can and will have an effect on the Part 5 TV airing for us. Our goal is to release every episode within a few days of airing, but it may take longer depending on our schedules. We’ll do the best we can and supply updates as needed.
Anyway, some thanks are in order! Once again I must thank Fadeout4 and Xemnas for their tireless commitment to working on Jojo. All three of us have been subbing Jojo since we released episode 1 of Phantom Blood over five years ago, and I truly could not do this without them. They’ve been amazing to work with through good times and bad, and I wouldn’t want anyone else but them by my side. I also have to thank ExWizzard for both creating and hosting the new site we’ve been using for the past several months. He’s been a major help to our community and has taken a lot of pressure off my shoulders by doing what he’s done. We would be without a site right now if it wasn’t for him. And lastly, I would like to thank the other various people who have helped us over the years, both credited and uncredited in this post. The work you’ve done has made this release that much better, and I seriously appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. It’s been a really community effort, and I thank all of you for taking part in it.
Finally, the last bit of business to go over is future plans. The Rohan OVA should be coming out in the next few weeks if all goes well. This time we’re doing a full collaboration with JJCA, so it will be coming out much sooner than it otherwise would thanks to them. And as we’ve already stated, we are going to release Part 5 both as it airs on TV and as a final blu-ray batch torrent in both 720p and 1080p. More info on that will be revealed as we get more information, but we’ll hopefully have it out before the heat death of the universe (Probably sooner). With that said, thank you all for reading my message, and enjoy this long-awaited release!
