Stone Ocean is the sixth story arc of the incredibly popular manga JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, which ran from December 1990-April 2003 in 17 total volumes. The story follows Jotaru Kujo’s estranged daughter Jolyne Cujoh, who was set up by her ex-boyfriend to serve a 15-year sentence in a prison.
“Florida, U.S.A, 2011 After an accident while on a drive with her sweetheart, Jolyne Cujoh falls into a trap and is sentenced to fifteen years,” reads the full synopsis for Stone Ocean. “She is sent to the state-run maximum-security correctional facility Green Dolphin Street Prison—AKA ‘the Aquarium.’ On the verge of despair, she receives a pendant from her father that causes a mysterious power to awaken inside of her. ‘There are things in this world that are more terrifying than death, and what’s happening in this prison is definitely one of them.’ A message from a mysterious boy who appears before Jolyne, inexplicable events that occur one after another, the horrifying truth told to her by her father when he comes to visit, and the name DIO… Will Jolyne ultimately be set free from this stone ocean they call a prison? The final battle to end century-long fateful confrontations between the Joestar family and DIO begins!”
