Earlier this month, Crunchyroll teased an original upcoming creative collaboration with Japanese artist Hiroyuki Takahashi, whose work is supercharged with the influence of anime, manga, and the wild energy of the Tokyo music scene. Now the official announcement regarding the Crunchyroll x Hiroyuki Takahashi team-up can be revealed:

Hiroyuki Takahashi’s first full color web comic is coming exclusively to CR in the form of...
HYPERSONIC music club!




Story

In the world of tomorrow… when technology has reached it limits… a group of young cyborgs must battle the extra-dimensional monster girls for final control of the enigmatic force known only as…The Mystery Frequency!



The main cast of characters... from right: Miss Nyxx, Cosima, Byrd, Lanya, Val, and the Extra Dimensional Monster Girls!

Beginning serialization next week on Friday, January 30th exclusively on Crunchyroll, HYPERSONIC music club will be free for all users to access. Readers can expect two new pages of full color art by Hiroyuki Takahashi per month along with bonus updates featuring character bios, behind the scenes artwork, and additional story elements like this...



COSIMA! Your first full character reveal for HYPERSONIC! More about her and the others soon...

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

HYPERSONIC music club marks the first project from the new Crunchyroll Originals line, which will feature exclusive one-a-kind collaborations with Japanese creators in a variety of formats and media. Please look for announcements regarding more Crunchyroll Originals soon!

It's interesting to see the marked increase of original works by on demand services. This looks like a lot of fun CR, looking forward to it.

I think you're mistaken; Crunchyroll's general store has never been region blocked for anything, they do ship internationally but it will just probably take longer due to customs and such. Also, I do not see anything in the product descriptions saying that these items are US exclusive.

Too colorful! *O* Goes without saying, I guess, from what I can tell, Hiroyuki Takahashi has always been a Key Animator and Animation Director for a lot of good and vibrant series. Glad he gets his own work, I look forward to seeing how it goes.

No, not mistaken, sure you can access the store but you can't buy 98% of what they sell, some time ago it was possible, I bought some items, with crazy high shipping costs, but suddenly one day most of the articles were unavailable for my country, I can see them but can't buy them, it says, it is unavailable for my country, I understand there might be some items that can't be bought outside of the US for licensing or something, but when you can't buy Crunchyroll's own products, well that's a problem, let me show you some screenshots:











as you can see, I can't buy them, they have an unavailable message, don't have the add to cart option, and when I do, they show up in my cart like " this item is not available in your country" even CR own products, so no cyber deals, no mistery boxes or anything I can buy, sorry I'm not wrong just a situation that annoys me, and that I still can't get an answer from CR

Huh, well that's unfortunate...perhaps they might try making their FAQ a little more clear next time...

CR... Getting something exclusive

This is both good and bad! It's a great thing for it's members like me, however I know a few people who live in countries where CR isn't available... And this might increase piracy in those countries. Anyhow, Iäm looking forward to this.
