FEATURE: "HYPERSONIC music club" - When Extra-Dimensional Monster Girls Attack

The new original webcomic by Hiroyuki Takahashi

Zip Zap! After some delays, the story of Hiroyuki Takahashi’s HYPERSONIC music club finally continues this week as the villains of the piece make their full-bodied debut. The question now is: Can your heart withstand the shock of… Extra Dimensional Monster Girls?


For those of you just joining us, HYPERSONIC music club (not to be confused with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band) is artist Hiroyuki Takahashi’s first original webcomic and is exclusive to Crunchyroll (although you can read it here and here, too).


Our story is set in the year X85X, at a prison / school for young wayward cyborgs who are prone to partying and playing loud music when no one is around. This time though, they may have gone a bit too wild, because now, a trio of creatures from beyond have arrived on the scene to say…



Will our heroes, VAL and LANYA, survive the unexpected fury of their new Extra-Dimensional foes? And how are COSIMA and BYRD likely to hold up as music club itself turns into a punching bag? Just what the heck is the Mystery Frequency, anyways, and what secrets could it possibly hold? FIND OUT IN THE NEXT scintillating installment of HYPERSONIC MUSIC CLUB!



In the meantime, here’s a recap of all of our story pages to date, capped off by an instant replay of our latest page in its proper place…















So what else is new at the HYPERSONIC honeycomb hideout? Well, we’ve just added some brand new limited edition merchandise in the Crunchyroll Store for you to peruse and consider (and a million thanks to everyone who has bought HYPERSONIC stuff from us before!).
