Crunchyroll To Publish Mugi Tanaka’s PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team!

Crisis Team, transform and roll out!

Wait, sorry. Wrong franchise.

Last night, Crunchyroll announced that they’ll publish Mugi Tanaka’s PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team!. The series will make its début as a webcomic on May 28, with new pages slated to be added weekly. Crunchyroll describes the story as follows:

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?

The comic is a joint project between Harajuku retailer PARK and Crunchyroll. The plot was written a collaborative effort by Tanaka, Otaku USA’s Patrick Macias, and PARK. To promote the series, Crunchyroll released a key visual, as well as several character design sheets for the main cast.
