4 JOJOLands Hero & Stand are unique to the series
His first big revelation JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: The JOJOLands to discuss is, of course, JoJo’s title. The JOJOLandsThe protagonist is Jodio Joestar, a teenager who lives in Hawaii and works as a gangster along with his brother, Dragona. The JOJOLandsJodio Joestar is portrayed as an arrogant and selfish man who cares little for anyone outside of his family, with his narration in chapter 1 repeatedly bragging about how he’s going to get rich. All this, in addition to his profession, makes Jodio very different from the previous one JoJo protagonists, and there’s no way of knowing if it will change at all at any point in the series.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: The JOJOLands Chapter 1 also revealed the abilities of Jodio’s Stand, November Rain. November Rain appears to have the power to bombard people with incredibly thick raindrops, and unlike the Stands of previous protagonists, it doesn’t look like a human or bipedal creature at all, instead looking more like a giant spider. The appearance of November Rain is another factor that shows how different Jodio is and The JOJOLandsas a whole, it will be from the rest JoJo’s Bizarre Adventureand it will be interesting to see how the rest of the story holds up in it.
3 JOJOLands Possibly Presents JJBA’s First LGBTQ+ Hero
Another big reveal for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: The JOJOLands is that it could have been introduced JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure first LGBTQ+ protagonist. As previously mentioned, Jodio has a brother, Dragona Joestar, but he doesn’t seem to distinguish a woman between dressing in women’s clothing, with Jodio specifically noting that he likes women’s fashion and has real breasts from cosmetic injections. Dragona also uses the Japanese pronoun Atashia feminine Japanese pronoun commonly associated with gay men and trans women, so putting it all together suggests that Dragona is JoJo’s Bizarre Adventurethe first definitively LGBTQ+ protagonist.
There are some caveats to his idea The JOJOLandsHowever, Dragona Joestar is an LGBTQ+ character. While the translations referred to him with male pronouns, in the original Japanese text, Jodio is the only one who specifically refers to Dragona as male while other characters use gender neutral pronouns. Dragona doesn’t correct Jodio or take offense at being referred to as male, but it makes it difficult to say anything concrete about Dragona’s gender identity. A series of like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Having an explicitly LGBTQ+ protagonist would be great, but as of now, the story needs to progress further before a definitive statement can be made.

2 The cast of JOJOLands Are A Dark Take On Golden Wind
About his cast JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: The JOJOLandsan important fact is that his cast JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: The JOJOLands it can be seen as a dark mirror of it Golden Windof the cast He looks a lot like his cast Golden Windhis cast The JOJOLands is part of a gang, but while Giorno and his friends were trying to turn Passione into a more noble organization, The JOJOLandsThe cast fully embraces the negative lifestyle of being a gangster. Surprisingly, this also includes Jodio, who happily reaps the rewards and benefits of selling drugs in his community, which would be the exact opposite of Giorno’s character.
Steel ball run and JoJolion could be read as darker versions of it Phantom Blood and The diamond is unbreakablerespectively, therefore from this point of view, it stands to reason that The JOJOLands it would be a darker take JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:Golden Wind. This, of course, can work to the story’s advantage, as a giveaway The JOJOLands something specific to contrast may allow its strengths to be sold even more. The ins and outs of the story haven’t been fully explored at this point, but there’s plenty of room to build something great regardless.
1 Jodio of JOJOLands is the cousin of Josuke of JoJolion
As its protagonist JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: The JOJOLandsJodio Joestar is a member of the Joestar family and the particular way he is in the family gives him a very close bond with JoJolionJosuke Higashikata. Chapter 1 explains Jodio’s Joestar heritage by revealing that his and Dragona’s mother is Barbara Ann Joestar, the previously unmentioned sister of Holy Joestar-Kira. That makes Jodio his cousin Steel ball run Yoshikage Kira of the universe, which in turn makes him his cousin JoJolionJosuke Higashikata, who exists as a fusion of Kira and Josefumi Kujo.
Jodio and Josuke’s relationship is especially relevant to the setup for the first story arc The JOJOLands. Jodio’s gang plans to steal a diamond belonging to a rich Japanese man visiting Hawaii, and since the Higashikatas are obscenely rich, it would make sense that the Japanese man would be Josuke. The two of them clashing despite being family could further emphasize that Jodio is more of a badass JoJo and aside from allowing Josuke’s story to continue, it could make up for the lost opportunity The diamond is unbreakableJosuke Higashikata never meets Giorno, so it would be a perfect direction for this part JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure to go.
