Shueisha Files “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind” Trademark With Logos

Could this be a prelude to Giorno “GioGio” Giovanna’s debut?

On December 20, publisher Shueisha filed a trademark with the Japanese government for JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Ōgon no Kaze (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind). The filing was officially released to the public on January 9, and includes a rough logo image.

On the same day, Shueisha also filed a trademark for a stylized “JoJo” image, which you can check out below:

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind is the fifth major story arc in the ongoing JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga franchise. The arc, which ran from November 20, 1995 through April 5, 1999 in Weekly Shonen Jump, moves the setting to Italy. In the west, the arc’s title uses the Italian translation of “Golden Wind,” Vento Aureo.

Viz Media currently holds the domestic rights to the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga and anime in the west, though they have yet to release Vento Aureo in the west.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure spawned four anime adaptations, which cover the first four arcs:

  • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
  • Battle Tendency
  • Stardust Crusaders
  • Diamond Is Unbreakable

The most recent series, Diamond Is Unbreakable, ran through December 2016. A Diamond Is Unbreakable live-action film hit Japanese theaters in August 2017.
