JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 ファントムブラッド, JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Fantomu Buraddo) is a 2007 Japanese anime film based on Part 1 of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series, Phantom Blood. The film was released on February 17, 2007, to commemorate JoJo author Hirohiko Araki's 20th year of publishing.[1][2] Animation was handled by A.P.P.P., the same staff who handled the earlier JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA based on Part 3 Stardust Crusaders. The film had a limited screening in Japanese theaters and has never been released on home video.

Story[edit]

The film generally follows the story of the Phantom Blood manga arc, featuring Jonathan Joestar in his fight against adoptive brother Dio Brando, who after years of attempting to break Jonathan (including kissing his childhood love Erina Pendleton) poisons their father and becomes an immortal vampire through the use of a Stone Mask. Jonathan receives training in an ancient martial arts technique known as Hamon from the eccentric Italian man Will A. Zeppeli, whose father originally discovered the Stone Mask, and the two attempt to kill Dio before he uses his newfound powers to enslave humanity.[3][4][5][6]

Cast[edit]

The owarai duo "Speedwagon" (Jun Itoda and Kazuhiro Ozawa) who took their name from Phantom Blood character Robert E. O. Speedwagon have cameo appearances as Dario Brando and Wang Chen.[7]

Soundtrack[edit]

Soul'd Out's song "Voodoo Kingdom" served as the film's theme song.

Tie-ins[edit]

A video game for the PlayStation 2 was released on October 26, 2006, that was also based on Phantom Blood. It shares most of the film's cast and includes characters that did not make the final cut of the film.[7][8]
