The Paradox Live multimedia project has been swimming in CDs, merchandise, and other items as it seeds the market with itself and now an anime is in the works for it. We learned in May 2022 that plans are in motion for a 2023 debut for Paradox Live The Animation with Naoya Ando directing it with Takayo Iakmi handling the scripts. Koji Haneda is on board for the character designs with PINE JAM working on the animation production.

The opening theme song “RISE UP” will be performed by the teams BAE, The Cat’s Whiskers, cozmez, and Akan Yatsura while the ending theme song will be performed by the Buraikan team with “Every Day Every Night.”

Plot Concept: The franchise takes place in the near future, where rappers wear accessories that contain a metallic substance called Phantom Metal. Through the Phantom Metal’s chemical reaction with the rappers’ own DNA, the rapper can create illusions linked to their emotions during their performance. The result is a new type of spectacular concert.
