We’ve been sadly remiss in reporting on Hypnosis Mic -Division Rap Battle-, the rap-focused franchise that encompasses CDs, live events and smartphone games.
But now we’re here to report that Hypnosis Mic is adding anime to its media mix. The series is set to hit screens in March 2020.
The series is called Hypnosis Mic -Division Rap Battle- Rhyme Anima, and will ostensibly continue the tales of rap groups Buster Bros!!!, Mad Trigger Crew, Fling Posse and Matenrou.
The premise for the whole franchise, by the way, is pretty wild: it takes place in a future Japan in which, thanks to a government run exclusively by women, conventional weapons have been banned (thanks, women!). Instead, people battle for territory with rap, which can do actual physical damage because of the power of the hypnosis mic.
If that sounds like something worth checking out — which, it totally does, right? — be sure to tune in this March.
