Hirohiko Araki would like to continue writing JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure forever — Kudasai

the middle japanese Mainichi Shimbun conducted an interview with Hirohiko Arakiauthor of the franchise JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken), where he commented that if JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure it ends up being the only work he writes throughout his career as a manga author, he would have no problem.

  • «If JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure ends up being the only notable series I work on, that’s fine with me. Do you know that there are potters who continue to work even after their 90th birthday? That is something I admire. I would like to keep writing this forever».

The comment, in fact, is reminiscent of another that Araki had already made in an interview in 2007, in which he had indicated his intentions to write up to a “Part 9” of the work and retire at the age of 50.

  • «The time I have left to sit at my desk and work is getting shorter. My joints are also beginning to ache from drawing so much. These physical limitations might only be associated with professional athletes, but they also apply to manga artists. If I could I would probably keep drawing forever».
  • «I tend to draw the strange things that I have come across in the past. Even so, there are still many mysteries about human beings, such as why they become murderers or why they suck up to their bosses. In theory, as long as humanity does not become extinct, mysteries will continue to be born. Knowing this, I think I could keep working on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure indefinitely. However, considering my age, I think I’ll probably go on until the ninth part or so».
