JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable


The Duwang edged out Re:Zero as the most interesting anime of 2016 according to Japanese fans. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has always had a massive following in Japan, so it being crowned as #1 shouldn't be a huge surprise. It also helps that this last season packed more than a few punches.

Do you agree with Japan's picks? What would you say was the single most interesting anime of 2016?
