Crunchyroll Announces Original “PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team!" Webcomic

New title by Mugi Tanaka launches next week, 5/28

Last week, we teased an upcoming collaboration with up-and-coming Japanese artist Mugi Tanaka. Now, it’s time for the full reveal! Starting next week, Mugi’s first original webcomic, PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team!will begin serialization exclusively on Crunchyroll starting on Thursday, May 28th!

 

PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team! will be updated weekly on Crunchyroll with new story pages, along with additional art featuring character bios and bonus materials.

  

Crisis Team! is part of a joint project with PARK, a retail store located in Harajuku, Tokyo, specializing in “Fashion x Otaku x Creation”. In addition to the Crisis Team webcomic, Crunchyroll is now offering appeal and other unique goods from the PARK store direct to users via the Crunchyroll webstore (see items below in post if you don't believe us!).

 

But the main dish sure to cause a ruckus is the Crisis Team! story itself, created in collaboration with PARK, Mugi Tanaka, and me (Patrick Macias!): expect a wild mix of science fiction, everyday life, comedy, and action...

 

 

STORY

 

Several years from now, the great cities of the world will be destroyed by creatures from another planet. Their next target is…Tokyo’s famed Harajuku district! Only a trio of treasure-seeking shop girls can hope to save the day. But first, do they have what it takes to become members of the PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team?
