"No matter where you go, there you are."


Suicide Squad Isekai – Harley Quinn, The Joker, Peacemaker and more feature in the new trailer for the anime

WIT Studio (Ranking of Kings, SPY x FAMILY) and Warner Bros. Japan officially announced Suicide Squad ISEKAI, an anime series featuring the iconic DC Comics antihero team. The announcement was made at the Anime Expo 2023 on Monday.

“After our big success on Batman Ninja, we decided to take on this series,” said Warner Bros. Japan’s Hiroyuki Omori, who is an executive producer on Suicide Squad ISEKAI, “this is not a dream. This is a made-in-Japan, totally original story set in an Isekai world.”

Isekai is a subgenre of fantasy in which a character is suddenly transported from their world into a new or unfamiliar one.

In the crime-ridden city of Gotham, Amanda Waller, the head of A.R.G.U.S., has assembled a group of notorious criminals for a mission: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface, and King Shark. These Super-Villains are sent into an otherworldly realm that’s connected to this world through a gate. It’s a world of swords and magic where orcs rampage and dragons rule the skies—an “ISEKAI”!

With lethal explosives planted in their necks, there’s no running or hiding, and failing the mission means a one-way ticket to the afterlife! Can Harley Quinn and her crew conquer this perilous ISEKAI realm?! Brace yourselves for the pulse-pounding saga of the elite task force known as the “Suicide Squad” as they embark on a jaw-dropping adventure!

The series will be directed by Eri Osada, with screenplays from Tappei Nagatsuki (Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World) and Eiji Umehara (Vivy – Fluorite Eye’s Song).

They are joined by Akira Amano, who illustrated the visual and is working on draft character designs, Naoto Hosoda on main character designs, and Kenichiro Suehiro on music composition.

Warner Bros. Japan will be managing the project’s production, with WIT Studio on animation production.

Suicide Squad Isekai is due out in 2024.
