The Name "Josuke Higashikata" (東方定助という名前 "Jōsuke Higashikata" to Iu Namae) is the second volume of JoJolion and the one hundred sixth volume of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga. It covers the end of the Soft & Wet story arc and most of the California King Bed story arc.

Author's Note
The "lion" in the title "JoJolion" means things like "blessed thing", "evangelistic", and "commemorative seal". It's a word from ancient Greek or something like that. By combining this word with "JoJo", I've meant for the title to signify the existence of the protagonist "Josuke" in this world. It's also used in the name of the tragic king in a Greek myth called "Pygmalion" as well as the Japanese animation "Evangelion", but I'm not sure if it has to do with the same idea.
