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.
