Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan[1] (岸辺露伴は動かない Kishibe Rohan wa Ugokanai, lit. Rohan Kishibe Does Not Move!) is the name of a series of one-shotsW featuring Rohan Kishibe (of Part 4) as the narrator and/or protagonist.

These one-shots are often published in Weekly Shonen Jump or Jump Square. A volume compiling the first four chapters, along with Rohan Kishibe Goes to Gucci, was released on November 19, 2013.

Description

The Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan series is a set of fantasy stories, all spanning a single chapter of around 50 to 60 pages and usually organized into disordered "episodes". They all feature the mangaka Rohan Kishibe, who finds himself involved in various supernatural occurrences, sometimes only witnessing these phenomenons and making an account of what happened. Although the stories regularly feature Rohan's Stand, Heaven's Door, Rohan mainly encounters more esoteric creatures other than Stands, such as YōkaiW, specters brought into existence by a curse, and more.

The series is kept separated from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's storyline, although characters from Diamond is Unbreakable and the town of Morioh regularly make an appearance.

Author's Note

Author's Note
Maybe you know, but Rohan Kishibe, the protagonist of this volume, is a character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Series, in particular the fourth part, Diamond is Unbreakable. He is a mangaka and a Stand user able to transform someone into a book, thus accessing this person's life and thoughts, and also influentiate them by writing among the lines... This collection gathers several stories about the adventures he had during his research. The first chapter was written in 1997. I'm very happy to see them together here.

These five horrifying stories bring us to Italy as well as in the middle of the Japanese mountains and the beach. I hope, with all my heart, that you'll enjoy reading them.
