It was announced by Hirohiko Araki, creator of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, at an art exhibition event that Part 5 of his series, Golden Wind (Ougon no Kaze), will receive a television anime that will begin airing this October! The first episode of the anime is slated to air at the Anyerri Hall in Tokyo as well as the Japan Expo in Paris, France on July 5 and later at Anime Expo on July 7.

David Production will be returning to handle the animation duties for the anime. They previously worked on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.

MyAnimeList.net describes Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part V: Golden Wind as follows:

Naples, 2001. Giorno Giovanna is a small-time crook with one big dream—to become a “Gang-Star.” No ordinary thief, Giorno has a connection to the remarkable Joestar bloodline, and possesses a Stand named Gold Experience. His dream starts to become reality when he meets Bruno Buccellati, a mobster from the gang Passione and a fellow Stand user himself. Realizing that they share similar ideals, and both disagree with the gang’s harmful affairs, Giorno reveals his goal to Bruno: with Bruno’s help, he will reform Passione by overthrowing the boss.

As Giorno becomes a member of Passione, and is inducted into Bruno’s squad, he discovers that it is no simple gang; its numbers are teeming with Stand users. Now confronted by other squads of differing loyalties and unpredictable caliber, their goal to change the gang from the inside out will be a tough one. Taking on these adversaries, Giorno attempts to rise through the ranks and inch closer to the boss, a man who is shrouded in mystery.
