Aniplus Asia announced on Sunday that it will simulcast upcoming anime series “HYPNOSISMIC-Division Rap Battle- Rhyme Anima”
The series will premiere on October 3, releasing new episode every Saturday at 1AM.
HYPNOSISMIC-Division Rap Battle- Rhyme Anima is based on a multimedia project by King Records under their Evil Line Records label. The project features voice actors, who performs in on rap battles.
Aniplus Asia describes the series as follows:
“The year: XXXX CE. A full third of the world’s population has been lost in the Third World War. Fearing for the collapse of the human species, the world’s leaders attempt to resolve the conflict with debate instead of more war––however; the foolish men in power failed to stop the violence. Thus, at the end of the common era, the world as it has existed is brought to a close by the hands of women.
The dawn of the H. Era. All weaponized conflict has been eliminated. Conflict is no longer solved by the use of crude traditional weapons, but specialized microphones that directly affect the mind. Lyrics recited through the device act on a target’s nervous system and can have a variety of different effects.
The name of this new technology: the Hypnosis Microphone.
Year 3 of the H. Era. Now a person’s worth is measured by their rap skills. Men are forced to live outside the CHU-OH-KU in areas called Divisions––Ikebukuro Division, Yokohama Division, Shibuya Division, and Shinjuku Division among them. One crew represents each Division to battle it out and expand their territory.
In this world where words are literally mightier than any weapon, these men put their pride on the line as the Division Battle begins.”
ANIPLUS Asia is available on cable television via Skycable in the Philippines.
