J-pop entertainment company Avex Group and otome game developer GCREST today (6th November) announces a hip-hop multimedia project “Paradox Live” and reveals its 14 casts.
The world is set in the near future where a new music movement “Phantom Live” gains massive popularity among young people. Four music groups, BAE, The Cat’s Whiskers, cozmez and Akan Yatsura (translation: Bad Guys / 悪漢奴), are invited to a mysterious music festival, “Paradox Live”. Differentiated from different music styles, the all-male music groups try to fight to the top.
Illustrators Akiakane (秋赤音), Komiya Kuniharu (小宮国春), Kinako (キナコ) and BL mangaka Harada (はらだ) is responsible for the character design of each music group.
The cast members also steal eyeballs with the joining of singer Kuroneko (96猫) and Shima (志麻).
