Summary
In a Japanese jail sits 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo, a punk, fighter, and a delinquent, possessed by a force beyond his control. Around the world evil spirits are awakening. These "strands," are monstrous invisible creatures which give their bearers incredible powers. To save his mother's life, Jotaro must tame his dark forces and travel around the world to Cairo, Egypt, where a hundred-year-old vampire thirsts for the blood of his family. But the road is long, and an army of evil strand users waits to kill Jojo and his friends
