JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders (Japanese: ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 スターダストクルセイダース, Hepburn: JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Sutādasuto Kuruseidāsu) is the second season of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime by David Production, based on the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series by Hirohiko Araki. It is the second animated adaptation of the manga's third part, Stardust Crusaders, following an original video animation series by A.P.P.P. that was released first in 1993 and continued later in 2000.
Set in 1987, the series follows Jotaro Kujo and his comrades, which have developed supernatural powers known as Stands, as they travel to Egypt to kill the vampire DIO to free Jotaro's mother from a curse that is slowly killing her.
The series aired for 48 episodes, split into two parts consisting of 24 episodes each. The first part aired on Tokyo MX between April 4, 2014, and September 12, 2014, also syndicated on MBS, Animax, and other channels,. The second part, subtitled "Battle in Egypt" (エジプト編, Ejiputo-hen, lit. "Egypt Chapter" or "Egypt Saga"), aired between January 9, 2015 and June 19, 2015. The series was simulcast outside of Asia on Crunchyroll's streaming services. A preview of the English language dub of the first three episodes was streamed on Crunchyroll on July 5, 2014, tying in with its premiere at Anime Expo 2014. The English dub began airing in North America on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block from July 29, 2017. Viz Media released a Blu-ray set of the first 24 episodes, that includes English and Japanese audio with subtitles for the Japanese, in North America on July 3, 2018.
In 1983, DIO, the vampire enemy of Jonathan Joestar which has possessed Jonathan's body, emerges from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. As DIO develops a manifestation of life energy known as a Stand, Jonathan's descendants Joseph Joestar, Jotaro Kujo, and Holly Kujo also gain Stands. In 1987, Holly cannot control her Stand and is estimated to have fifty days left to live. Jotaro, Joseph, and fellow Stand users Mohammed Avdol and Noriyaki Kakyoin travel from Japan to Egypt to find and kill DIO, which will free Holly. Because they are being targeted by a number of Stand user assassins, the group cannot travel to Egypt by commercial plane. The group is later joined by Jean Pierre Polnareff, a former assassin of DIO who discovers that DIO is employing the murderer of Polnareff's sister, along with the Stand user dog Iggy. Aided by Kakyoin, who reveals the nature of DIO's time-stopping Stand The World in his last moments, Jotaro kills DIO in Egypt, allowing Holly to recover.
Although teased at in the post-credit scenes of the first season's finale, the second season of the JoJo anime was officially announced in October 2013 in the November 2013 issue of Ultra Jump and the fifth tankōbon volume of JoJolion. David Production revealed that as with the different art styles they used for the first season, which covered the Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency arcs, they would be attempting a new art style with the Stardust Crusaders season. Takehito Koyasu reprises his role as DIO from the previous season and Daisuke Ono reprises his role as Jotaro Kujo from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle video game, but all other characters were given new voice actors.
The opening theme for the first half of the season is "Stand Proud", performed by Jin Hashimoto, while the ending theme is American female pop rock band The Bangles' 1986 single "Walk Like an Egyptian".[b] The "Battle in Egypt" half of the season has new theme music, with the opening theme changed to "JoJo Sono Chi no Kioku ~end of THE WORLD~" (ジョジョ その血の記憶～end of THE WORLD～, translated as "JoJo, That Blood's Memories ~End of the World~"), performed by the band "JO☆STARS ~TOMMY,Coda,JIN~" consisting of Hiroaki "Tommy" Tominaga, Coda, and Jin Hashimoto, each of whom had performed one of the series' previous openings, while the ending theme was changed to American jazz fusion band Pat Metheny Group's "Last Train Home" from their 1987 album Still Life (Talking). However, episode 27 featured the unique ending theme song and animation sequence for "Aku-yaku Kyōsōkyoku" (アク役♢協奏曲, "Evil Concerto"), performed by Makoto Yasumura and Motoko Kumai as their characters Oingo and Boingo; a digital single was released shortly after broadcast. This song was used again in episodes 36 and 37, this time performed by Hidenobu Kiuchi with Motoko Kumai, as the characters Hol Horse and Boingo; a digital single was released for this version of the song as well. The original score for the series is composed by Yugo Kanno. The first soundtrack album Departure was released on July 30, 2014, and a second soundtrack album Journey was included with the second volume of the Blu-ray releases, released on August 27, 2014. A third soundtrack album titled World was included with the first volume of the "Battle in Egypt" Blu-ray releases, released on April 22, 2015. A fourth album titled Destination was then released as an individual CD on May 27, 2015, and included a full length version of "Aku-yaku Kyōsōkyoku".

Just as they approach the Egyptian shore, Joseph is suddenly attacked by the High Priestess Stand, which has the ability to transform into any mineral substance. As the submarine descends into chaos from the Stand's attacks, it begins to leak and sink. Jotaro answers another call from Suzi Q, who becomes concerned about what she hears. With the submarine at the bottom of the ocean and running low on oxygen, Jotaro attempts to crush High Priestess with Star Platinum, but it escapes by transforming into a razor. Unable to directly attack High Priestess, the group attempts to escape to the surface while Suzi Q and her butler Roses prepare to fly to Japan.|

|After finding some scuba equipment, Joseph gives everyone a quick lesson before the group prepares to flee the submarine. As they exit the submarine, they discover High Priestess has disguised itself as Polnareff's regulator and attacks him. However, Joseph and Kakyoin save Polnareff using their Stands. They all leave safely and while swimming across some rocks, they find High Priestess has disguised itself as the sea bed, sucking them inside its mouth. As the Stand's user, Midler,[p] gloats from the surface, the group flatters her, trying to appeal to her vanity, but this only serves to anger her further. She tries to crush Jotaro between High Priestess's teeth. Jotaro breaks the teeth with Star Platinum. The group escape from High Priestess's mouth, reaching the surface, where they find Midler incapacitated (and disfigured) as a result of Jotaro's attack. Thirty days after leaving Japan and defeating many of DIO’s assassins, the Joestar group finally arrive in Egypt. Jotaro and Joseph assure Suzi Q of their safety before continuing their pursuit of DIO. Meanwhile, DIO has summoned nine more Stand users.|

Realizing Iggy can detect N'Doul's attack, Jotaro coerces him into summoning The Fool, which can glide. Jotaro hitches a ride against Iggy's wishes so they can head towards N'Doul to stop him from attacking. As they get closer, both Iggy's stubbornness and N'Doul's cunning puts Jotaro at risk. Star Platinum grabs Iggy and throws him in N'Doul's direction, forcing Iggy to protect himself with The Fool while also creating a distraction long enough for Star Platinum to injure N'Doul. N'Doul commits suicide through the use of Geb so he cannot be interrogated over DIO's plans. Elsewhere, a traveling manga artist asks to see Boingo's[r] comic book titled Oingo Boingo Brothers Adventure[s] and discovers its odd contents, but is scared off by Boingo's older brother Oingo.[t] The brothers prepare to head off to Aswan to confront Jotaro's group, but decide to wait for the next bus, as it is soon revealed that Boingo's comic book had predicted the artist's death.|
