Matenrou and Fling Posse return to face off against the new Asakusa Division
The epic rap battle between Fling Posse, Matenrou, and Onigawara Bombers was delayed due to COVID-19 concerns. But with Japan slowly reopening, track 2 of the Hypnosis Mic stage show is back on!
Hypnosis Mic -Division Rap Battle- Rule the Stage brings the rapping anime boys of the mixed media franchise to life in new stories, alongside new rivals. The cast features new actors, rather than the ones who feature in the CDs and live concerts. Track 1 pitted BUSTER BROS!!! and MAD TRIGGER CREW against musical-specific group North Bastard.
Check out moments from Rule the Stage track.1 (warning for flashing lights):
Rule the Stage track.2 was originally scheduled to go up this spring, but is now due to run August 12-19 at Shinagawa Prince Hotel's Stellar Ball. Tickets go on sale July 23 for 18,000 yen (merch bundle included).
