The official webiste for Jojo has created.
It came up on April 1... There was only a rough sketch before as placeholder of the website.
I was genuinely surprised when I read the news about Nishio joining in with the JoJo novelization project.
If there was going to be part 8 of Jojo, then I, personally, hope to start in either Shonen Jump or Jump SQ because it is much easier to get raws than Ultra Jump.
However, UJ gives him freer rein. Not to mention flexible pages per month... (You get to do anywhere from 18 pages to 60 pages, something you can't do at WSJ or SQ).
(Well, maybe you can, since that's what PoT has some of the months).
If Araki thinks weekly is too much workload, then I want Araki to move to SQ. (I don't want to buy either Young Jung or Ultra Jump for just one series).

UJ is known for it's flexibility. Just take a look at series like Heaven's Prison... When Utatane feels like it, he would draw a 40~50 page chapter. Otherwise, he'd just stick with a ~20 page chapter.
I'm happy that their going to be part 8 of Jojo. But I hoped it to move to either Shonen Jump or Jump SQ, then I can get easier access to it.
On the side note, is Jojolion an official name for Jojo part 8? Also, I wonder if the volume still going to release under Jump Comics lable or change to Young Jump Comics.

Isn't this thread should move to seinen category, since it is serializing in seinen magazine?
From the old west to sailors, interesting. Does anyone know the title for this part yet?
All one word?
There's a scanlated chapter already out via torrent if anyone is interested.
