The official website for Urahara — the television anime of Patrick Macias, Mugi Tanaka, and Crunchyroll's PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team! webcomic — began streaming the show's promotional video on Tuesday. The video reveals the anime's October 4 premiere, and additional staff.

Crunchyroll describes the story of PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team!:
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 cast stars:
Sumire Uesaka (Restaurant to Another World's Aletta) as Mari Shirako
Manaka Iwami (Gamers!' Chiako Hoshinomori) as Kotoko Mentsumugi
Kokoa Amano as Misa Maruno, a mysterious girl who appeared in Harajuku riding a Scoopers escape pod
Yasunori Matsumoto as Misa's pet Ebifurya, a talking fried shrimp
Riho Iida as Sayumin, who works at a crepe shop
Amika Kubo, the animator for the title sequence of the Beppin-san television drama, is directing the anime at Shirogumi Inc. and EMT Squared. Masatsugu Arakawa (Nurse Witch Komugi, Bottom Biting Bug) is the chief director. Natsuko Takahashi (Love Tyrant, Kenka Bancho Otome: Girl Beats Boys) is in charge of series composition. Mariko Fujita (Galaxy Angel, Futari wa Milky Holmes) is the animation character designer. Takahiro Yamada (Battle Spirits, Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire) is the mechanical designer. NC Empire designed the logo. The production is a collaboration between Crunchyroll and Chinese video sharing website Bilibili.

Crunchyroll began serializing the webcomic, along with character biographies and other bonus materials, on its website in May 2015. The webcomic features characters that Tanaka designed as mascot characters for the PARK Harajuku retail store. Crunchyroll News and Otaku USA magazine editor-in-chief Macias collaborated to create the webcomic's story.
