Netflix will stream the four original video animation (OVA) episodes that David Production animated. The first OVA episode is the original video animation (OVA) adaptation of the "Episode 5: Millionaire Village" that was distributed on DVD in 2017. It was directed by Toshiyuki Kato, with the assistance of Yasufumi Soejima. Shun'ichi Ishimoto was in charge of the character designs and Kenta Mimuro for the Stand design.

The second OVA episode by the same studio and staff, adapted the "Episode 2: Mutsu-kabe Hill" which was released on DVD on July 19, 2018. It was then followed by two new OVA episodes (3rd and 4th) which adapted the "Episode 16: At a Confessional" and "Episode 9: The Run" that were screened theatrically in nine cities in Japan starting on December 8, 2019, and were released on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 25, 2020.

The story is based on the series of manga one-shots created by Hirohiko Araki. It is a spin-off from Diamond Is Unbreakable, the fourth part of Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, and features the character Rohan Kishibe, a manga artist who travels around the world to get inspiration from people's lives. Starting with the one-shot "Episode 16: At a Confessional" in 1997 in the Weekly Shōnen Jump, the series is published by Shueisha with new episodes appeared in their Jump Square, Shōnen Jump+ and Bessatsu Margaret magazines. The series was originally meant to be completely original, but it was changed as Araki found it too tempting to use Rohan.
