Another big anime series could potentially be leaving Netflix in March 2021 with both seasons of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure set to leave Netflix (but only in the US for now) on March 7th, 2021.
Over the years, the anime anthology series is gaining in popularity and it's one of the most popular anime shows on Netflix.
Netflix US is currently the only country that has the show removed. The series can be viewed worldwide on Netflix. Japan, for example, is streaming the entire series while others are only streaming one of the four. The majority are streaming three. However, the US streams only two seasons.
With the elimination, Netflix will likely not be able to stream any newer episodes, such as Golden Wind and Diamond is Unbreakable.
Since March 2019, the first season has been available on Netflix. In February 2020, the second season of the show was released. It came out about a year later.
Season 1 of the show is labeled on Netflix as “Phantom Blood & Battle Tendency” with 26 episodes total. Season 2 is labeled as “Stardust Crusaders” with 48 episodes.
It’s absolutely worth noting, however, that anime removals don’t always tend to be final. We’ve seen with many shows over the years that this renewal date is exactly that and Netflix does to proceed to renew. With that said, it’s worth watching the show now if you have been planning to just in case.
As we mentioned, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure isn’t the only anime leaving Netflix US in March. Hunter X Hunter is also set to leave Netflix on the exact same day as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure on March 7th. Here is a complete list of all Netflix US movies that will be ending in March.
There are many other options for viewing the series, which is a good thing. Hulu has three seasons and is your next choice. Crunchyroll, however, is the best way to watch the series. It has all seasons.
We’ll keep you updated with the status of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure as and when we learn more. Let us know in the comments if you’ll miss the anime when it leaves Netflix on March 7th.
