In a delightful surprise for fans of both anime and superhero narratives, a new Suicide Squad anime TV show has been announced by Warner Bros. Japan (via YouTube).
Titled Suicide Squad ISEKAI, the show promises to bring the notorious DC Comics characters into an anime fantasy world. The news was unveiled at Anime Expo 2023, where a sneak peek of the teaser trailer featuring Harley Quinn, Joker, and other members of DC’s Suicide Squad was shared.
Suicide Squad ISEKAI: A Unique Blend of American and Japanese Storytelling
Suicide Squad ISEKAI is a cryptic yet intriguing new anime coming from WB Japan. The teaser trailer showcases Harley Quinn and the Joker venturing into another world, or possibly multiple worlds, adding an exciting twist to the familiar characters we’ve come to know and love.
The term ‘isekai’ is a Japanese word that translates to ‘another world’. It’s a staple genre of anime and East Asian storytelling, known for its unique tropes and conventions. The decision to place a distinctly American property like Suicide Squad into this genre is a fascinating one. Led by a Japanese team that understands these conventions and is likely to subvert them, the show promises to be an interesting blend of cultures and storytelling traditions.
A Talented Team Behind the Scenes
The team behind Suicide Squad ISEKAI is a formidable one. Eri Osada serves as director, and the screenplay is by Tappei Nagatsuki and Eiji Umehara. The character design is the work of contemporary mangaka Akira Amano, with additional design work by Naoto Hosoda.
Kenichiro Suehiro is responsible for the music, and the production comes out of WIT STUDIO. This talented team brings a wealth of experience and creativity to the project, promising a show that is as visually stunning as it is narratively engaging.
