Fortnite fans have taken to Twitter to share their feelings about a new Fortnite outfit called Hana, which was recently added to the item shop.
The consensus seems to be that the outfit is a reference to (or imitation of) the character Jolyne Cujoh from the Stone Ocean arc of the popular anime series Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.
Some of the comparisons are understandable, like the neon yellow hair and dark blue outfit with green accents. The only thing missing is the unique hat that Jolyne Cujoh wears in the anime. However, the similarities are almost certainly just coincidental, as Fortnite has a proven track record of official anime crossovers. Still, fans of the anime and Fortnite are not deterred and continue to make the connection.
The original official Fortnite Tweet announcing the new outfit has received tons of responses mentioning the similarities and sharing memes.
Boarding is the thrill. Outrunning the inner demon she harbors is the skill.

Hana’s outfit is currently available in the Item Shop for 1500 V-Bucks, with one of the alternate styles featuring a racing helmet that puts the outfit away from Jolyne’s comparisons.
