Avex Pictures announced a new multimedia franchise titled Kotodama Shoujo on Tuesday. The project will follow a virtual four-girl rap unit who will their own CD singles, an anime adaptation, a web radio show, and live-stream events on Showroom.

Kotodama Shoujo centers on Shiika Yosano, Raimu Mukouda, Chieri Villeneuve, and Himawari Kawabata. The girls attend a performance school where a hierarchical system is in place. As all four are at the bottom, they band together and form the rap unit "Microphone Soul Spinners," so they can aim for the top.

Aaaaand right to the top of my CGDCT hype list goes this.

Now I'm imagining 8 Mile meets Girls und Panzer - you destroy your rival, and then they suddenly respect you and become your friend. I don't think that's how that would go. XD

I'm not surprised a female rapper franchise has been announced considering the popularity of Hypnosis Mic. Guess I'll keep an eye out for the anime adaptation of this as its always nice to see a musical franchise that isn't focusing on the usual idols.

I’ve always wanted an anime centered around rap. Of course it’s cute girls as the cast. Not that I’m complaining lol. I guess it’s to be expected at this point. They’ll make cute girls do anything. I’ll check this one out. Hope it’ll turn out like that one rap scene in Zombieland Saga.

From idols to girls' band, Bushiroad already has a DJ project on the works and now it's rapper girls.

Interesting.

Gotta say, though... Cute girls have been doing a wild variety of cute things in these recent mixed-media/multimedia, huh.
