Reception

The film was received negatively by fans and Araki himself during its initial theatrical release. Many Japanese fans who saw it have boycotted the film due to how poorly it adapted Phantom Blood. The main reasons include:

  • Robert E. O. Speedwagon was presented as a minor villain, having been defeated at Ogre Street and never mentioned again.
  • The characters Poco, Dire, and Straizo were also not featured. Naturally, this means that Jonathan was alone during his final battle with Dio.
  • The concept of the Ripple was not explained clearly.
  • The movie was considered too short (Approx. 90 minutes), condensed, and basically "destroyed the original story".

The film has never been released on home media. While the reason behind this has never been officially revealed, it's generally assumed to be attributed to either the poor reception or the controversy surrounding the series and Studio A.P.P.P. at the time.
