It’s been a long time, so this is going to be a fairly big update about what still needs to be done and why the batch still isn’t done. If you’re only looking for an estimated release date, it will likely be sometime in April/May/June.


First, why has it taken this long to get the batch out? Two main reasons. The biggest one has been that Fadeout4 and I both burned out a bit working on Jojo. After working on each episode every week for 8 months, we fizzled out and needed to take a break. As much as we love Jojo, we had both already watched each episode at least 2 or 3 times in the process of working on them, so jumping back in immediately for the blu-rays was too much for us. After close to a year’s break and focusing on real life events (The other reason), we finally feel reinvigorated to keep working on the series. Although I’m normally against giving specific status updates since I feel they can be misinterpreted, I’m going to attempt to explain what work must still be done to get the batch out.


Episodes 17-39 need to be encoded in 720p and episodes 1-39 need to be encoded in 1080p.

The scripts for episodes 12-39 need to be checked by myself for errors and to clean up the editing.

The scripts for episodes 1-39 need to be quality checked by Fadeout4.


After all of this is done, the batch will be complete and ready for release. We began ramping up our work on Part 4 back in December from episode 1, so this is about a month’s worth of progress. However, please keep in mind both Fadeout4 and I have more real life obligations now and this pace may not keep up. We still fully intend to sub Part 5 if the anime for it is announced, but we won’t definitively say we’re subbing it until we know for sure when it will be airing. As stated above, we’re hoping to have it out sometime during spring, but it’s only a very rough estimate. It could come out sooner, or it could come out later. Unless July rolls around and we haven’t released it, we will not be offering another status update like this one. Please just be patient and know we’re still working on it and have no intentions of dropping it.

  1. Doing God’s work there, guys. I seriously appreciate the attention to detail in your JoJo scripts. In fact, the only reason I’ve been putting off watching DiU (despite my friend nagging me about it regularly, and myself itching to) is that I know my experience won’t be complete unless I watch it with subtitles of highest quality. Sucks that the wait is so long, but there’s little I can do about that except being patient, I suppose. A status report is definitely great to see even if it pushes the expected date further back, as the fact that progress is being made feels reassuring by itself, so I’ll wait for your release and avoid spoiling myself with inferior translation. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thank you guys for your hard work. I’m just happy you guys are still working on it. As long as that is happening, I’ll be patient.

    • Araki wrote these things out of order and numbered them according to whatever chronological order he had in mind. At the moment there IS no “Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan episode 1”. The earliest thing released is Mutsukabe Hill, being episode 2. The chronologically final one is episode 16… which was also the first one published.
