The unpredictable members of DC’s Suicide Squad are about to head out on their biggest mission yet: an isekai anime! After Warner Bros. teased a collaboration between DC and anime production house WIT Studio (the first three Attack on Titan seasons, Ranking of Kings, SPY x FAMILY), the results were revealed as the appropriately titled Suicide Squad ISEKAI.

The announcement came through with a trailer and visual, so let’s take a look at how this one is shaping up below.

Eri Osada is directing the Suicide Squad ISEKAI anime, with Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World author Tappei Nagatsuki handling screenplays along with Eiji Umehara (Vivy – Fluorite Eye’s Song). Akira Amano is on character design drafts, Naoto Hosoda is on main character designs and Kenichiro Suehiro is handling the music. 


Here’s what some of the key staff members had to say about the project:

Akira Amano (PSYCHO-PASS):

I’m a big fan of Harley Quinn and the other characters in the Suicide Squad movie! It’s an honor for me to be involved in the creation of Suicide Squad ISEKAI.

Eri Osada’s clear vision for Harley’s design made the process smoother than expected, and I enjoyed drawing her costume and muscles while imagining her action-packed adventures in the story.

I’m excited to see how the talented animation staff brings Suicide Squad ISEKAI to life!

Tappei Nagatsuki (Re:ZERO − Starting Life in Another World):

It is finally announced, Suicide Squad ISEKAI. ISEKAI! Suicide Squad!

Who has ever thought about mixing these two!?

But this is sure to be a dream project.

Crazy villains go on a rampage in ISEKAI! It’s nothing more, nothing less, and it can’t be anything else!

Eiji Umehara (Vivy – Fluorite Eye’s Song)

What would happen if the fascinating characters of DC Comics went to another world?

I am honored to be involved in a work with such a boyish and straightforward idea. I drew a variety of villains with one goal in mind; to make Harley look cute!

I hope you will join me in enjoying and enlivening this World.

Shinya Tsuruoka (Warner Bros. Japan)

Japanese anime has attracted widespread popularity among global audience in these days and “ISEKAI fantasy” now is one of the most popular genres.

What if DC characters such as Harley Quinn and The Joker rampages in ISEKAI? This is truly an outrageous anime project we deliver for a global audience from Japan.

I am thrilled to work with WIT STUDIO for this dream project which only Warner Bros. Japan could produce. Please look forward to the original story and DC characters’ blast in ISEKAI.
