I bet Araki starts JoJo's part 8 by next winter. The world needs JoJo's. Hopefully he takes a short break and writes something as cool as 'Lives of Eccentrics' first.

Yes, the manga world seriously needs Jojo. I'm happy, now I can finally read a new, complete Jojo series :) It's too good to read in monthly installments.
