▍About Hypnosis Mic
Hypnosis Mic is a popular rap franchise by King Records under their Evil Line Records label. The characters were designed by Idea Factory under their Otomate label, with Yuichiro Momose as the main scenario writer.
It sets in a world where war is waged not with weapons, but words. At the project’s beginning in Sept. 2017, it focussed on four main units named Buster Bros!!!, MAD TRIGGER CREW, Fling Posse, and Matenrou, each controlling and fighting for their own territory. “Bad Ass Temple” is the six rap division of the mixed media project.
