Paradox Live is a hip-hop mixed media project born from a joint collaboration between Avex and G Crest since 11/6/2019. Set in the near future, saturated with hip-hop culture comes a new movement known as ‘Phantom Live. Each rapper uses a metal accessory called “Phantom Metal” that reacts to the user’s DNA and displays an illusion related to their emotions, creating a magnificent scene for the enthusiastic youth.
With the sudden revival of the renowned club “CLUB paradox”, hosted by Paradox Live, four teams known as BAE, The Cat’s Whiskers, cozmez and Akanyatsura clash in the competition. Victory went to Cozmez, but in the heat of battle, the legendary Buraikan team was shuffled and a new challenge began. Time passed, new teams, VISTY, GOKU LUCK, 1Nm8 and AMPRULE joined the project. Each character features the most popular voice actors leading current animated entertainment.
