Synopsis for Hypnose Mic: Division Rap Battle - Reim Anima

In a world where women dominate government, the creation and use of weapons is strictly prohibited. The conflicts are by no means over: instead of weapons, wars are fought with words. With the power of the "hypnosis microphone", the letters can affect the opponent in various ways and cause real damage. Those in the divisions outside of Chuou Township are waging violent rap battles as a weapon to continually expand their territories.
