These DC supervillains are sent to a realm of another world that is connected to this world through a door.

It is a world of swords and magic where orcs rampage and dragons rule the skies: an “ISEKAI”! Harley and the others cause a commotion upon arriving in the other world, but are captured by the Kingdom’s soldiers and sent to prison. They only have 72 hours before the bomb in their neck explodes.

The deadline is approaching quickly. After negotiations with Queen Aldora, the condition for their release is to conquer the enemy imperial army. They have no choice but to dive headfirst into the battlefield.

With their lives at stake, can Harley Quinn and the rest of the Suicide Squad survive in this new world? Get ready to embark on an amazing adventure! Let the party begin!”
