Twitch is about to get a bit more bizarre

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Viz Media

Twitch already encompasses a vast range of content ranging from ASMR to K-drama streaming events, but for the next two weeks, things are about to take a swing in the anime direction. Starting today, Viz Media will be livestreaming the first three seasons of 2012’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure — 113 episodes total — until Aug. 25 on its Twitch channel.

For those unfamiliar with the series, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is based off of Hirohiko Araki’s manga of the same name. The multigenerational series follows the Joestar family as they battle tirelessly against evil. While the protagonists change from season to season, their names can always be shortened to “JoJo.” This series, which began in 2012, is the latest of several other anime adaptations of Araki’s original manga.

The first three seasons cover multiple story arcs of the beloved series including the Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency, Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable Arcs. Episodes will be broadcast in Japanese with English subtitles. The stream will only be available to users in the US and Canada, and will allow viewers to interact with each other while collectively viewing the series.

Episodes will be broadcast at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, with an encore of the day’s stream at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET. The full schedule of episodes is as follows:
