FEATURE: “HYPERSONIC music club” – Inside the galaxxxy Collaboration items!

Well, we did it. HYPERSONIC music club and Crunchyroll has teamed up with galaxxxy — Japan’s #1 pop fashion brand — for a set of two limited edition HYPERSONIC apparel  items (a T-shirt and a jacket) now on sale in the Crunchyroll store! Read on for the scoop on both items, a tease of our next story page, and lots of pretty pictures!



Both items are personally designed by HYPERSONIC music club artist Hiroyuki Takahashi and feature awe-inspiring full color prints decorated with characters and images from our original web comic. 

 

For those of you just joining us, HYPERSONIC music club is artist Hiroyuki Takahashi’s first original webcomic and is exclusive to Crunchyroll (although you can read it here and here, too).

The items officially went on sale yesterday in japan, so promotion has only just begun!


Later this month, the HYPERSONIC items will be featured on the WAO-RYU! TV web show hosted by model Yuu Kimura where Hiroyuki Takahashi will be the special guest for an interview and a live drawing session. We’ll be sure to share the show links when they are live, but for now, here’s a few pics of Yuu Kimura in the HYPERSONIC jacket and shirt!

Also, as I sit writing this, we’re only a few hours away from the HYPERSONIC x galaxxxy collaboration items launch party at galaxxxy HiFi in Tokyo. There will be DJs, dancers, people in crazy clothes, and Hiroyuki Takahashi will be doing a live drawing session. We will be doing a full event report after the smoke clears, but for now, here’s the event flier designed by Takahashi-san.
