In this world, the government is now dominated by women, and the creation and use of weapons are strictly forbidden. But that doesn’t end conflicts, so war is waged through words by the power of Hypnosis Mic. Those in the divisions outside of the women-only Party of Words thus use it for fierce rap battles as their weapon in the constant clash for territory.

But with rap being the main topic of the show, Hypnosis Mic will immerse you more with the art of rap and hiphop.
