ARB Prologue Part 1: The Setting – HypMic Info

The prologue is quite lengthy and thus will be split into multiple ‘sections’ as some may want to be skipped for the sake of time, and reading large chunks of text on mobile would be difficult. On autoplay, the voiced story is about 15 minutes so this will take quite some time.

The entire main story is voiced so please do choose the LEFT option when starting a chapter to hear the voices. I personally do not recommend leaving things on autoplay because there are no gaps between lines and it’s therefore easy to listen to your favourite boys!

Also, do not worry too much about picking the ‘right’ option because there’s very little difference between story branches – about two or three lines at most are given before returning to the main branch.

MCH-Era, Year 3.The two of us walked through the gates of Chuo, and towards the Colosseum ahead. It was only the two of us.

???Oi! Hurry up and get over here!

[ FOOTSTEPS ]

???You only ran a little and you’re panting so much already? Really… What a weak kid.

MC CHOICE

A: S-Sorry…!!

???Ha… In that condition, you’re a hundred years too early to be my apprentice.

B: It’s cause teacher’s luggage is so heavy

???No excuse, brat. If you’re going to be my disciple, don’t complain about carrying luggage.

MAIN BRANCH

[ BEEPING NOISE ]

???Hm? Ah. Time for my meds.

MC CHOICE

A: [SILENTLY GIVE HIM THE MEDICINE]

???That’s right, I forgot I put it in the luggage.

B: I have the medicine

???Tch. If you had it, just give it ‘ere. What a careless kid, jeez.

MAIN BRANCH

???Hh… Now, let’s get going. Chuoku… where rappers take the stage.

MC CHOICE

A: Wa… It’s so big!

???

It’s not just big. The Colosseum’s optimised for rap battles. You won’t see anything else like this.

B: It’s not as big as I expected?

???You’ve got a mouth on ya. This is the optimal facility. You’ve never seen anything like this before.

MAIN BRANCH

???Size, equipment, no matter how you look at it – this facility dedicated to rap battles by the pride of Chuoku is state-of-the-art. Look.

GIRL AWow… This is going to be my first live rap battle!

GIRL BWe’ve still got some time left, but let’s go sit in the audience. I’m so excited, I can’t keep calm!

GIRL CI get you! I can’t wait either! Who are you guys rooting for today?

GIRL BHm… I’m a little worried, but ‘Buster Bros!!!’

GIRL AMAD TRIGGER CREW’S cool too, right?

GIRL CIt’s gotta be Matenrou for me!

GIRL BBut Fling Posse is hard to ignore… Hmm!

MC CHOICE – No branching

A: There’s so many women!

B: The venue’s so large but there’s even more seats

???That’s right, since today today is the Alternative Rap Battle’s semi-finals. All the women in Chuoku come to watch.

It’s different from the street raps you’re used to with the scale and prize money on the line.

GIRL BOh look! Over there, isn’t that DJ ROKURO?

GIRL CAh, it’s really him!

GIRL AHuh?.. Who’s that?

GIRL BHe’s a DJ! The Chuo Ward specially invites a DJ for the Alternative Rap Battle.

GIRL AHuh? But in the territory battles, don’t the speakers come out when the MCs start their ‘Hypnosis Mic’?

GIRL CYup. In territory battles, or in rap battles elsewhere, the MCs speakers will start the beat. But in Alternative Rap Battles, it’s a DJ with both popularity AND SKILL who leads the match.

GIRL AHuh… Then DJ Rokuro must be pretty good then?

GIRL BOf course! You can’t be into rap battles and now know who DJ ROKURO is. [1]

GIRL CYou don’t get anyone better scratching on the decks like DJ ROKURO.

MC CHOICE – No branching

A: Teacher, you’re pretty well known!

B: Teacher, they’re all looking at you..

ROKUROTch. Don’t bother getting involved with them. Let’s go.

[ ROKURO AND MC GET UP TO LEAVE ]

GIRL BAh! Wait! DJ ROKURO! I’m a fan!

GIRL CCan I shake your hand please!

GIRL DEh? DJ ROKURO? Where?

GIRL EI want to get his autograph!

???You over there! Make way and get away from that man.

GIRL CAh…

PARTY OF WORDS AExcessive contact with the participants will be regarded as obstruction of business and you will be removed immediately. Don’t make extra work for us Rokuro Doudantsutsuji. Come with us.

DJ ROKUROYeah yeah.

[ ROKURO LEAVES WITH THE ATTENDANT ]

GIRL BEh, no way…!

GIRL CLook over here!

GIRL B Just a second! Stay there!

[ A GIRL BUMPS INTO MC ]

GIRL CWhat big luggage, annoying!

GIRL DDJ ROKUROー!!

GIRL E

Can I get your autograph?

[ THE GIRLS CHASE AFTER HIM ]

MC CHOICE – No branching

A: Wait, teacher! Don’t leave!

ANNOUNCER

Customers going to the venue, please listen for guidance. Today’s match is expected to be very crowded.

Those who have completed registration procedures, please take a your designated seats as soon as possible.

GIRL ADJ ROKURO already went so far ahead.

GIRL BAh no… I though I’d be able to meet someone famous

GIRL CIt’d be dangerous if you were called out by The Party of Words officials, so it’s not worth the risk.

GIRL BWell, I’m sort of nervous since the audience is so big this time.

GIRL CThe number of people’s definitely increased. Even people who aren’t as interested in Hip Hop are coming to watch now.

GIRL AOf course, that’s cause when you fight with ‘Hypnosis Mic’, it’s so cool! The performances are amazing.

GIRL CSecurity for the Alternative Rap Battle is supposed to be tight and it’s pretty safe, but it’s also easy for beginners to enter as well.

GIRL BUnlike territory battles over territory, the alternative rap battles are way more entertaining

GIRL CYeah yeah! It’s pretty easy to watch

GIRL AOh, hey, our seats – I think we can get in from that gate.

GIRL CReally? Let’s go, let’s go

[ THE GIRLS LEAVE ]

ICHIROYeah, I’m talking to you. Tell me something. Earlier, didn’t you call that person teacher?No point in hiding the truth. The logo’s embroidered right there on your bag – DJ ROKURO.

JIROOi you. Don’t think Ni-chan doesn’t know if you’re lyin’ to him!

SABUROUnlike some morons, Ichi-nii is a smart person. There’s no point trying to deceive him.

JIROBastard… Who you calling a moron?!!

SABUROIt’s obvious without me saying who it is.Ah, of course you would know who I’m talking about. Talk about a pitiful guy.

JIROWhat ya say?!!

MC CHOICE

A: You know about DJ ROKURO?

SABUROOf course we know. You’d definitely know the name if you were even a little caught up with modern rap battles.What’s more, we’re participants in the Alternative Rap Battle.

B: It’s the ‘Buster Bros!!!’!

JIROWhat’s that to ya, huh?

MAIN BRANCH

ICHIRO

[ FOOTSTEPS APPROACH ]

SAMATOKIWhat? ‘s there something wrong with my eyes?I’m seeing that bastard Ichiro over there.

ICHIROSamatoki…!!

[1] There was a line that says モグリだよ、モグリ I have literally never heard this in my life. But judging by context, I assume it’s affirmation or a noise of excitement.

I’ll post the next part in an hour or so while I do checks… and grind for Rio’s event. Please, this emu is giving me a hell of a time.
