Tag refers to the first story of Jojo_no_Kimyou_na_Bouken.

It is a martial arts action horror story set in Victorian England. It debuted in 1987 and has been adapted three times: a Capcom video game, a 2007 anime movie, and as the first part of the 2012 anime TV series. The first two adaptation closely emulates the very muscular character designs of the original series, but the 2012 series changes the designs to a slimmer look that resembles the artwork of later Jojo story arcs. The 2012 adaptation is animated by David Productions who went on to adapt subsequent Jojo arcs into TV series. The ED themes for each adaptation are notably pre-existing rock and pop songs, functioning as a music reference on its own. Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency's ED theme is the 1971 rock song Roundabout by Yes. Said song, which begins playing as an episode draws to a close before transitioning into the end credits, has become a popular meme with various video clips being edited to resemble the distinctive endings of David Pro's adaptation of Jojo.

Jonathan Joestar is the son of the wealthy and respectable George Joestar and lives a comfortable life within the Joestar mansion. The Joestars get along very well, but things change once George decides to adopt a boy named Dio Brando who has recently lost his father. Dio is an intelligent and charismatic boy and Jonathan attempts to befriend him. Unfortunately for Jonathan, Dio uses his gifts for his personal gain and doesn't care if people are hurt in his pursuit of his goal of inheriting George's wealth and property. Dio is also interested in a sinister looking stone mask that is located within the mansion, which suddenly animated whenever it comes into contact with blood. Over the next seven years, Dio proceeds to bully and humiliate Jonathan, committing deeds like burning Jonathan's dog Danny and forcefully kissing Jonathan's love interest Erina Pendleton. Jonathan is seemingly powerless against his adopted brother and George is completely unaware of Dio's schemes.

Seven years later, George has fallen ill and Dio has spent a lot of time taking care of the man. He also discovers on his own that the stone mask can turn people into vampires. Jonathan is suspicious of Dio and soon realizes that Dio is poisoning George. Jonathan successfully gathers evidence exposing Dio's plot, befriending a mugger named Robert E. O. Speedwagon in the process, and summons the police to arrest Dio. Unfortunately, the cornered Dio uses the Stone Mask to turn into a vampire and easily kills the police officers. George is also killed in the ensuing battle. Jonathan manages to trap Dio as the Joestar mansion burns down and barely escapes with his life.

However, Jonathan soon discovers that Dio is still not dead and is recovering from his injuries. Jonathan is approached by an experienced Italian martial artist named William A. Zeppeli who wants to work with Jonathan to stop Dio. Zeppeli has a special martial art technique called the Ripple (Hamon) which focuses a person's bodily energy into other forms of energy with the use of proper breathing. Zeppeli trains Jonathan in this technique as they prepare to stop Dio once and for all.
