What is the Steel Ball Run anime rumor all about?

The Steel Ball Run anime leak started when the chief animation director of Stone Ocean Yumenosuke Tokuda recently shared a post on X (previously Twitter) suggesting a possible ongoing production of the anime. Tokuda is known for his work in Pokemon, Naruto, Dragon Ball, Black Butler, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, and Fire Force, and is a very reputed personality in the anime community.

On a recent note, Tokuda shared a post of a woman riding a horse, and stated that it was cool and these are the subjects required for the next JoJo sequel. While he took down the post in a matter of hours, the beans were already spilled and discussions were sparked in an instant.

Is the rumor surrounding the Steel Ball Run anime 2024 true?

As soon as Tokuda posted the picture of the woman on horseback, fans were excited about the Steel Ball Run anime expected release. However, Tokuda took down the post and reassured the fans with another post with a sketch of Jolyne Cujoh and included the following statement – “Don’t panic. Nothing has been decided yet! Because of my job, I often post for my staff. I tweeted something I thought would be helpful, and this post wasn’t meant for the general public… It will be a while before we can celebrate together .”

We can say that the Steel Ball Run anime leak was nothing more than a hoax and it will be quite some time before the anime is put into production. Moreover, as Tokuda suggested, Steel Ball Run will return as a sequel. It is only a matter of time as to when it will be under production.

Steel Ball Run anime release date and plot details – what to expect

The Steel Ball Run anime has no specific release date as of now. While Stone Ocean had a poor run, we can expect that the upcoming season will put the anime back on track. Moreover, since the anime has been pretty quiet since Stone Ocean, a rumor that turned out to be untrue still shimmers hope in our direction.

As far as the plot is concerned, Following the narrative of Jolyne Cujoh, the daughter of former JoJo star Jotaro, Stone Ocean was set mostly in a jail and included some of the franchise’s most intense Stand bouts to date. Steel Ball Run, the next chapter of the series to be adapted for the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime, revolves around a cross-country horse race – hence the tweet speculation – and features new hero Johnny Joestar competing in the event before coming face to face with President Valentine’s exclusive plan to boost his power.
