The release date for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean part 3 has finally been confirmed by the official Japanese website.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean has easily been one of the most disappointing anime releases of the past few years. Not because of the lack of quality for the anime itself, which is one of the best instalments of JoJo in recent years, but because of how Netflix has been releasing the series.
The platform has opted to release new content only after extremely long breaks between batches – essentially killing off the hype that the show had built up prior to its debut in late 2021.
Thankfully, the second batch of episodes was made available to stream around the world in early September, with the release date for JoJo’s Stone Ocean Part 3 having now been officially confirmed.
The first part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean anime series premiered with 12 episodes on December 1st, 2021.
Nine months later to the day, Netflix launched the second part of the TV anime adaptation, with a further 12 episodes being released early on September 1st, 2022.
The series’ second part is set to start its domestic broadcast in Japan from October 8th.
Only a matter of minutes ago, the official Japanese website for the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean anime adaptation confirmed that part 3 would release via Netflix on Thursday, December 1st – don’t worry, that’s December 2022 and not 2023.
Part 3 will include episodes 25 – 38 and whilst the episode titles have not yet been revealed, all 13 episodes are expected to premiere on Netflix at the same time.
“Anime “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean” Episodes 25 – 38 will be available exclusively on Netflix from December 1, 2022 (Thursday)! TV broadcast scheduled to begin in January 2023! The third KV release! Anime “JoJo`s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean” Episode 25 – Final Episode 38 distribution and broadcast information has been released!

In Japan, part 3 of the Stone Ocean anime will be broadcast in January 2023 – a more specific date was not shared.
The series has not yet fully adapted the Stone Ocean manga series, which was published between December 1999 and April 2003. Based on the recently released part 2, the anime series has currently adapted up until roughly chapter 99 of the original manga.
The good news is that this leaves another 58 chapters left to be covered in the TV series – which will be entirely adapted in Part 3 of the anime with the recent announcement confirming that episode 38 will be the final instalment.
Despite the controversial release schedule, Stone Ocean has proven to be extremely popular with fans around the world. At the time of writing, the series is scoring an impressive 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, 8.2/10 on IMDB, 4.3/5 on Anime Planet and 8.29/10 on MyAnimeList.
The individual Blu-Ray DVD box sets are set to release on the following dates, with the expected episode orders in brackets:
