"This was a pilot, doubling as an announcement trailer, for the 2007 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood movie," YouTube user Mangonation wrote. "It was shown at the 2004 Tokyo International Anime Fair, and then never seen again. The animation is entirely unique to this pilot, and was not used in the final film. Some scenes and characters, including Robert Speedwagon, are present in the pilot but did not make it into the actual movie due to time constraints."

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood is set in Victorian, England and follows Jonathan Joestar, the first JoJo, as he battles his wicked foster brother Dio Brando. This film was produced to commemorate the 25th anniversary of creator Hirohiko Araki's career as a manga artist and was given a very limited theatrical release in Japan starting on Feb. 17, 2007.
