What is Paradox Live – The plot
Paradox Live, the media mix rap music project has 29 voice actors and 4 teams. The setting is based in futuristic Japan where the members wear Phantometal accessories. The Phantometal diffuses with their DNA and creates an emotional reaction making them go through illusions of their past trauma. This is called a trap reaction, it helps them create illusions on stage with the trauma as a side effect.
The four groups are BAE comprising 3 members, the cat’s whiskers comprising 4 members, Cozmez is a duo and Akan Yatsura with 5 members in it. They compete against each other in Paradox Live, the club which has come back into existence after a decade.
If they win this competition they win prize money as well as a chance to battle against the duo Buraikan. There are also 4 new groups. All these groups have different music styles and they fight to be the winning group.
