THTFHQ Patreon Page

ENLIGHTRIBE is set in a gritty, alternative world in which everything is controlled and restricted, even music.

An introduction to the project

ENLIGHTRIBE is being marketed as a full-scale rock x character project.

At the moment there are no details on how big a scale it will be or if it will be a mixed media project like ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream is.

However, what is known is that the bands will work just like on DIG-ROCK which is to say that, out of the whole cast, only the seiyuu voicing the vocals will sing for their respective bands, whereas the other members will participate in drama tracks.

The synopsis goes like this:

——Give the world the best music.

A world where everything is restricted and controlled.

In a controlled society where even entertainment is not allowed, The music festival “ENLIGHTRIBE” is announced.

Its concept is “uNITING the world with the best music“.

Upper-class band THAT HAS EVERYTHING

band consisting of 2 MIDDLE-CLASS brothers who walk around the world serving the upper class

Band comprised of lower class individuals restricted and deprived of their freedom

Each band participates in “ENLIGHTRIBE” for their own purpose.

The focus in the story seems to not only being the lack of freedom, but also a battle between classes which may prove interesting and, at least, is slightly different from the themes in most 2D music projects.

A promotional video is out.
