In Japan, no story is beyond the limits of what can be told. As long as it has an interesting twist or a target audience, everything has the potential to get the green light. No matter how niche it seems. How absurd it craves. In Japan they understand that there are no bad stories: just bad ways to tell them. So it should come as no surprise that Suicide Squad Isekai, the anime that introduces The Suicide Squad into a fantasy world, is still going strong. And that it looks better than ever.
Warner Bros. Japan and Wit Studio have shown the new trailer for Suicide Squad Isekai. Along with the opening song, the main casting of the Japanese version and English subtitles to appreciate everything in conditions. Something that shows their interest in reaching an audience beyond Japanese.
The premise of the series, on the other hand, couldn’t be more interesting. Amanda Waller, the head of A.R.G.U.S., has assembled the world’s most successful group of criminals. Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface and King Shark. What for? To take on a mission that is impossible for normal people. To go through a portal to another world to accomplish an impossible mission. Which if they avoid, will set off an explosive connected to their necks, which will leave them headless and lifeless.
Directed by Eri Osada, director of Jujutsu Kaisen, and scripted by Tappei Nagatsuki and Eiji Umehara, involved in Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, the anime has the potential to be one of those series that attract attention for being crazy, fun and very, very interesting. Along with the trailer, they have confirmed that the opening is called Another World, and is composed by Tomoyasu Hotei, a musician that in the West we know for appearing in the soundtracks of Disgust and Fear in Las Vegas and Kill Bill.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to premiere worldwide sometime in 2024. And while it doesn’t have a concrete release date yet, we’ll tell you when we know, because we’re the first ones to be interested.
