So, this is my attempt at putting together a timeline for both the original and new universes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I'll primarily be using the manga (along with the Light Novels and spin-off manga [even the ones not written by Hirohiko Araki]) as the basis for the timeline, though the anime adaptation does fix a few errors (notably Joseph's age in Diamond is Unbreakable, which was incorrect in the manga, yet fixed in the anime). Lastly, many of the dates I have are courtesy of the JoJo's Bizarre Encyclopedia, which is a surprisingly detailed wiki for JJBA, even covering some of Hirohiko Araki's other works.

Anyways, without further ado, let us begin...

Added up to the end of chapter 9, which means that the second story arc (A Letter from the Past) is fully added, while the third story arc (The Stone Mask) is partly added.

Belated, but added the last few parts of The Stone Mask arc, as well as the entirety of the Youth with Dio arc (barring the final part, which I'll add tomorrow).

Just noting that I haven't given up on this project, but I've been bogged down with personal stuff IRL. I'll try to continue this sometime next week.
 
Added the final chapter (chapter 17) for the Youth with Dio arc and the entirety of the Jack the Ripper and Zeppeli the Strange and Ripple Overdrive arcs.

As a bonus, I also plan to work on a timeline for the second universe once I finish Parts 1 to 6, though as I'll be reading The JOJOLands on its release, that may be where work on the second timeline begins.
 
Added the Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford arc.

Sidenote, we're only four days away from the first chapter of Part 9: The JOJOLands releasing. As such, I'm aiming to have Phantom Blood fully completed before then, though no doubt I'll have to wait for translations to come out.
 
Added the last of Phantom Blood's arcs (Pluck for Tomorrow and the Successor, The Three from a Faraway Land and Fire and Ice, Jonathan and Dio) to the timeline.

And with that, Phantom Blood has reached its conclusion. Next up on the timeline will be Battle Tendency.
 
I am pleased to announce that we have now begun Battle Tendency on the timeline. And with that, the first story arc (Joseph Joestar of New York) has been added.

Expect a massive update coming real soon. Been busy with IRL, but I have some free time now to continue the timeline.

As a side note, I'm considering also including an anime version of the timeline for anyone interested. That said, I probably won't begin it properly until after I finish Stardust Crusaders on the manga side of things.

Finally, I've added a Timeline Reasoning (mainly for the Part 1 to 6 universe) to the initial post, in case anyone is interested in wondering why I've placed such entries.

Minor update, but changed the Battle Tendency chapter numbers to match what they are for the part. Overall chapter numbers for the manga are now listed in brackets for ease.
