Author's Note

Author's Note
In this book, a new ability called "Stands" is introduced. "Stands" are psychic powers given a visible form and shape. Traditionally, these kinds of powers were shown with light and electrical effects, or aftereffects like crumbling buildings.

I asked myself, "How can i express this invisible power?" That's when i came up with "Stands". Now, let's begin a new adventure with Jotaro and his friends!
