The OVA project of “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険) franchise, “Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan” (岸辺露伴は動かない) reveals a new PV for the episode, “The Run”.
In this episode, Rohan has a thrilling running battle with Yoma Hashimoto (CV: Kouki Uchiyama), a model who is obsessive with exercising. Rohan met Yoma at a gym, while they were running side by side on two treadmills which were connected to the same remote.
The treadmills had a setting on which they would gradually accelerate up to 25kmph and the two would try to grab the remote first once at maximum speed. The battle becomes intense as Rohan shockingly noticed the subtle wing-shaped muscles, from Yoma’s legs to his back.
The OVA project consists of two episodes, “Confessional Room” and “The Run” and is available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on 25th March 2020.
