Blood Sun Vendetta


Blood Sun Vendetta (BSV) will be a fan-made motion-comic series. The David Production JJBA, Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable animated series serves as the inspiration of style and direction. Though animation will be limited, due to BSV being a motion-comic.

Episodes will feature sound effects, music, and voice acting, as opposed to the common motion-comic standard of word-bubbles. This will also allow the project to be dubbed fairly easily, which is the plan: to release episodes both with and without dialogue tracks.

While the story and characters are original (with a few cameos and references from the original series), the story does take place in Hirohiko Araki's world of JoJo's Bizarre Adventures, and so with respect to the original author and the production companies producing the series in print, animation, and motion pictures, I will not be monetizing videos.

I would also strongly urge those who choose to localize (dub in their own native language) the episodes, that they too do not monetize the videos.




Research


In January of 2018, I took a roadtrip across Mexico. I felt it was important to experience a sample of what the characters would have to endure. Along with my buddy Gerardo (aka Nevarky), we spent 8 days driving from San Luis Potosi to Cancun. A little over a week certainly wasn't enough to absorb all that I wished to learn from the culture and country, however it was invaluable.

Everyday we woke before sunrise (usually around 3 or 4am), drove 5 to 8 hours to our next location, took as many photos as we could before nightfall, then passed out. Needless to say, I'd love to return and visit the locations with more time.




Black hole Sun


Black Hole Sun is the humanoid stand of Jose Hijo de Caballo. From the beginning, it's clear that Black Hole Sun is a more independent stand (in the vein of Echoes or Surface), and it's also clear that José doesn't treat his stand very kindly.

Without giving away spoilers, the core of José's resentment comes from his hatred for his father (Hol Horse), who he blames for his mother's death. José sees BHS as a bitter reminder of his father.

As a child, José's mother (before her death) would often recount how his father had special powers, something she knew José had inherited.

José has spent his whole life distancing himself from his stand and also parts of his personality. From a young age, José has been filled with bitterness and bent on revenge. Putting aside things like humor, wonder, generosity, and kindness.




About the author


I've been a fan for over 25 years, collecting and reading the manga while I was kid growing up in Asia. Decades later, seeing the work the David Production team has done with the JJBA animated series has been hugely inspiring as a creator.

While none of my previous animations really reflect the influences of JJBA, a JoJo-based project has been a dream of mine since I was kid, however, the original and changing style of Hirohiko Araki was always far above my skill-grade (and, frankly, still is).

While the BSV project is an intimidating undertaking, I've reached a point as an animator and creator where stepping out of my comfort zone seems necessary. And while I've set my sights on working on an original series several times in the past, I've never actually tackled long-form storytelling.

A project that combines one of my greatest inspirations and the ability to grow as a story-teller and artist seems like a natural step (for me) between creating original shorts and an original series.

And so, for however long I can afford to work on Blood Sun Vendetta, I'm excited and mortified to be dedicating myself to a series.
