When they meet, Joutarou realizes that he may have more in common with Jousuke than just a blood relation.
Along with the mild-mannered Kouichi Hirose and the boisterous Okuyasu Nijimura, the group dedicates themselves to investigating recent disappearances and other suspicious occurrences within Morioh.

Well i am happy that the Jojo’s bizarre adventure Manga is getting its first live action movie adaptation but just as the name, the series have some bizarre actions scenes which are seriously exciting to watch. And the latest edition of Jojo’s bizarre adventure – Diamond is unbreakable possess “Stand Fights,” Which needs excellent graphics and vfx quality. I seriously hope that they will not mess up with the graphics and vfx and will properly execute the fight scenes.
