Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan (岸辺露伴は動かない Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai, lit. Rohan Kishibe Does Not Move!) is a series of OVAW adaptations of the eponymous series of one-shots, featuring Diamond is Unbreakable character, Rohan Kishibe. Much like the one-shots themselves, the episodes are released out of order.

The promotional DVD was made exclusive to applicants who had purchased the entirety of the Diamond is Unbreakable Blu-Ray or DVD set before the deadline of July 31, 2017.

A second episode was announced on February 18, 2018, adapting Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan - Episode 2: Mutsu-kabe Hill. The disc was bundled with the second volume of Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan, released on July 19, 2018.

On August 18, 2019, two more episodes (adapting Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan - Episode 16: At a Confessional and Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan - Episode 9: The Run) were announced. The episodes themselves was screened at select Japanese theaters starting on December 8, 2019.

On October 26, 2020, Netflix announced a worldwide release for the series and on February 18, 2021 dubbed and subbed versions of all four episodes premiered on the platform.

Trivia

  • This is the first JoJo OVA to be released in over a decade, the last being the Stardust Crusaders prequel OVAs from the early 2000's.
  • Despite being released right after the Part 4 anime, the OVAs opts for an art style closer to the one-shot it's adapting.
