Mine is actually pretty easy! It’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure of course!
Although there is a bit more of story to it. It is extremely rare for the Canary Islands to feature in any piece of media. We are a tiny archipielago 70 km to the west of Africa which isn’t even part of that continent, but a spanish colony, a small region separated by thousands of kilometers from a country with an already established cultural identity and cliches surrounding it.
But you see, the Canary Islands are featured in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure not only once, but three times at different points for various fateful events.
At the end of Part I, Erina, the wife of the protagonist, is rescued there after being left shipwrecked while she was giving birth to the protagonist’s child at the climax in the series. Erina brings her child to the Canary Islands and raises him there. The baby’s name is George, and he is Joseph’s father, the actual protagonist of the second arc of the series.
It’s of course also where Dio Brando, the infamous and beloved antagonist is last seen, trapped in a coffin and sinking on the ocean. And where it makes his return at the beginning of the third arc, Stardust Crusaders.
George Joestar is mostly a very minor and forgettable character who is only mentioned a couple of times during Joseph’s arc, but there are a couple of wild coincidences relating me to that character. He was born in 1889, exactly 100 years before I did (I’m from 1989). George is the english equivalent of Jorge, my real name, and same as George, I wasn’t born in the islands themselves, but on Madrid, although my parents moved here when I was still a baby and I have basically lived my whole life here, same as the character.
This is already funny as it is, but on 2012 the Canary Islands made its third appearance on the JJBA canon. JORGE JOESTAR is a spin-off novel in which they retconned the character’s original name to make it fit the JoJo archetype. Here’s an excerpt:
My name is Jorge Joestar. Though the name comes from my grandfather, a nobleman, it’s spelled JORGE. Latin-style.
When I asked why it didn’t sound English, my mother laughed.
“You were born here on the Canary Islands, after all. And if it weren’t spelled so, no one would call you JOJO, would they?”
The whole novel takes place here on the archipielago and it is a wild, wild read. But yeah that’s the gist of it, I’m a JoJo protagonist!
