An official website was launched on Wednesday to reveal that King Records' multimedia project Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle will get a TV anime adaptation. Subtitled Rhyme Anima, it will premiere in 2020. Staff behind the project will announce more information regarding the anime in March.

Synopsis
In a world where women now dominate the government, the creation and use of weapons is strictly forbidden. However, by no means has conflict been brought to an end; instead of weapons, war is waged through words. With the power of the "Hypnosis Mic," lyrics can affect one's opponent in various ways and cause real damage. Those in the divisions outside the women-only Chuou Ward thus use it for fierce rap battles as their weapon in the constant clash for territory. (Source: Tokyo Otaku Mode)

Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle is a 2.5D project that centers around six units who participate in rap battles. The voice actors of these characters also perform live at stage events and concerts.

I KNEW IT!!! We're supposed to get a rhythm or gacha game as well. I knew it'd get an anime eventually.

I've always been interested in this franchise but never actually gone deep into it, just sorta read little bits of character lore and enjoyed fanart. I never actually knew what the context of the story was, and after reading the synopsis... THAT'S WHAT IT'S ABOUT?! I had no idea...

Anyway, I look forward to the anime - especially seeing Samatoki.

I wonder how they will handle it, considering the lore and characters' backstories are still bare bones in some way. I will watch it, but I won't get my hopes too up.

Really didn't expect an anime adaptation at all considering they just released the two new divisions and their new albums so recently. We're too well fed by this franchise :') Can't wait to see them all animated!!

(PS: there's some mistake for the names of the members in dotsuitare hompo, it should be Sasara Nurude and Rei Amayado)

If rap didn't suck so bad, I'd watch this, but I think I'm gonna pass.

I'm so happy it's getting an anime. I didn't believe it would happen, but I'm happy to be proved wrong. I just hope some good studio will take care of it, cause I want to see my boys Ramuda and Sasara animated as beautifully as possible.
My taste is shit but so is yours.

So rap and an all-male cast, two things I absolutely don't wanna see in anime. Guess I'll pass on this one, everyone else have fun if this is your cup of tea.

i had a feeling they'd do this lol. the TDD manga series kept running into delays and people weren't picking it up as much and felt really disorganized. hoping the anime will be better.
