Does Jotaro die in Stone Ocean?

Yes and no, Jotaro does die in the original JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean manga arc, but is revived thanks to a timeline reset in the final chapter.

In part six of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga, Jotaro’s Memory and Stand Disks are stolen by Whitesnake. Jolyne is able to retrieve the Stand Disk but without the Memory Disk, Jotaro will become a husk of a person with no soul.

In a battle against Pucci, our protagonists are able to get Jotaro’s Memory Disk back and he starts to make a recovery.

However, when Jotaro and Jolyne’s team face Pucci one last time in Cape Canaveral, Pucci throws a knife towards Jolyne.

Jotaro lets go of his time-stopping power and choses to save his daughter; the knife strikes him in the face and kills him instantly.

However, the arc ends with Made in Heaven’s powers causing the entire timeline for the Stone Ocean storyline to be reset. This means that despite being mortally wounded on one timeline, by the end of Stone Ocean and in both of the alternative universes, Jotaro is alive.

Has part 2 of the anime been confirmed?

On December 1stNetflix launched 12 episodes of the new season and at the time of writing, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean part 2 has not been confirmed.

However, fans of the series are optimistic that the anime will return for a second part. This would not only be in accordance with the typical season duration for the JoJo franchise, but also the entire manga story to be adapted.

The series is easily popular enough to warrant a second part, but may already be in production under the precedent that the Japanese television networks need to catch up on their broadcast – scheduled to start in January 2022.
