"Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan" is a spin-off of Hirohiko Araki's "JoJo's Bizarre Adventures," featuring the titular character Rohan, who is a side character from the original manga series' fourth part titled, "Diamond Is Unbreakable."

Rohan is a popular manga artist who always aims for realism in all of his works. In order to achieve this, he travels around the world in search of inspiration from the everyday lives of the people he meets along the way. He is able to do this with the help of his Stand ability, which is the manifestation of his inner strength known as Heaven's Door.

This particular ability allows Rohan to read and write in a person, learning everything about them and altering their memories and behaviors as necessary.

In addition to the upcoming OVA, the manga series will also be getting its 10th one-shot in the Feb. 23 issue of "Shounen Jump." The one-shot will consist of 48 pages.

On the other hand, the "Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai: Mutsukabezaka" DVD is being bundled with the limited-edition of the second volume of the manga series, which is scheduled to be released on July 19. Pre-orders can be placed only until May 16.
