Hypnosis mic –Division Rap Battle- 6th LIVE is included in the 2nd Division Rap Battle series and was originally visit 3 locations: Tokyo, Osaka, and Aichi.

Unfortunately, due to the current fast dissemination of Coronavirus in Japan and the recent issue of state of emergency in the Tokyo and 3 neighboring prefectures, events and live shows for the first quarter of 2021 being held in those locations are being cancelled, postponed or changing format.
