JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure DVDs, Blu Rays, Streaming
This is a list of all of the DVD and Blu Rays you can purchase or preorder in North America, as well as the streaming options. I’m concentrating on just listing the ones available for this region, but know that if you have a region free Blu Ray player you can purchase the Japanese ones. Most do have English subtitles, but note that they are quite pricey!

Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency – 26 EPISODES
This is a DVD ONLY release produced by Warner. English dub and subtitles are available, but the subtitle track does not actually match the Japanese dialogue. In other words, the subtitles are the hearing impaired ones that follow the English script, which has some changes from the original Japanese version.
The other problem with this release are the lazy menus. I wouldn’t really recommend purchasing this, unless you want a complete collection or find it very cheap.
Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency
This is a BLU RAY and DVD SET produced by Viz Media. It uses the same dub track the Warner release uses, but SHOULD have the appropriate subtitles, given Viz’s other releases. The menus also should be better, but this isn’t released yet so I can’t really say too much about it.
I will say that Viz is well established and known for not botching releases like Warner does, so this set should be worth a purchase.
Part 3: Stardust Crusaders OVA
Volume 4: Amazon | eBay (none found!)
These are individual DVD releases of the OVA for Stardust Crusaders. (Which I never did write about, whoops!) There are 6 total, but the last 3 are hard to find nowadays. Each disc has about 3 episodes, and are English dubbed only. The voice actors for this are not returning for the 2014 release.
Part 3: Stardust Crusaders (2014)
Amazon Digital Video (Only episodes 1-24 with Japanese audio + English subs)
This is a BLU RAY and DVD SET produced by Viz Media. This should be just like the Parts 1 and 2 release, but with a new dub by Viz. This unfortunately does not have a release date or a placeholder yet, so I can’t even link where to purchase it! I will when I can, though.
No further parts have been announced for release in North America yet.
