It was recently announced that a new anime series will be coming out from WB Japan and WIT Studios called Suicide Squad ISEKAI.
Not much is known about the story, but, from the looks of the short teaser trailer, it seems that Harley Quinn and the Joker will be center stage in this new series. There looks to be a lot of action and mythological creatures, and we even get a quick shot of Amanda Waller.
You can check out the teaser trailer below:
Isekai is a genre of fiction that revolves around a person or people who are transported to and have to survive in another world, such as a fantasy world or parallel universe. This most likely means that Harley Quinn, Joker, and the rest of the Suicide Squad will find themselves in an unknown land full of these strange, mythological creatures we see in the trailer, and will probably have to fight to get back to their world. But that’s just my own speculation.
During their panel at Anime Expo 2023, the companies unveiled the teaser. Director Eri Osada is helming the project, together with Tappei Nagatsuki and Eiji Umehara as screenplay writers, Akira Amano working on the character design draft, Naoto Hosoda handling character design, and Kenichiro Suehiro composing the music.
“I am very happy to be working as a director on this all new anime series based an DC’s Suicide Squad characters.” Osada recently commented. “I can’t tell you which character yet, but the villain I wanted to have appears in this Suicide Squad ISEKAI, and I hope you will enjoy it too.”
