When this has been emailed to me, I quickly replied, “Nice lineup we have,” because it really is, according to my anime taste, a nice lineup.
Imagine dreaming about a rap battle in a fire dungeon complete with DJs lights, MCs and all. You are reppin’ the visiting team on its last crusade, and the topic to rap about was… love life.
Yeah, I made that up – let’s get straight to the anime channel’s offerings for the last three months of the year. Do take note that I’ll show the date/time of airing as Aniplus Asia states it, followed by my translation of their date/time slots for those who are used to the AM/PM time format.

The year: XXXX CE.
A full third of the world’s population has been lost in the Third World War. Fearing for the collapse of the human species, the world’s leaders attempt to resolve the conflict with debate instead of more war––however; the foolish men in power failed to stop the violence.
Thus, at the end of the common era, the world as it has existed is brought to a close by the hands of women.
The dawn of the H. Era. All weaponized conflict has been eliminated. Conflict is no longer solved by the use of crude traditional weapons, but specialized microphones that directly affect the mind. Lyrics recited through the device act on a target’s nervous system and can have a variety of different effects.
The name of this new technology: the Hypnosis Microphone.
Year 3 of the H. Era. Now a person’s worth is measured by their rap skills. Men are forced to live outside the CHU-OH-KU in areas called Divisions––Ikebukuro Division, Yokohama Division, Shibuya Division, and Shinjuku Division among them. One crew represents each Division to battle it out and expand their territory.
In this world where words are literally mightier than any weapon, these men put their pride on the line as the Division Battle begins.Synopsis provided by Aniplus Asia

According to her, a girl who is the same age as her will be entering First High School as her visiting counterpart.
Meanwhile, at the USNA Stars’ base, a girl prepares to go undercover to investigate First High School.

It’s been a long time since I heard from Kenjiro Hata, and I believe he’s having a happy life of a mangaka with her seiyuu wife Masumi Asano whom he married two years ago. They had given birth to a series that I love and cherish, Seiyu’s Life, leading to the birth of the seiyuu unit Earphones. Absolutely looking forward to this.
