THTFHQ Patreon Page

Be prepared for good vibes and a star-studded cast with the first-ever 2D Reggae music project, JAMROCK.

Introduction

Under the tagline “Bringing the light of reggae into a world full of dark news, Love & Peace to the whole world…!!”, JAMROCK is a 2D music project completely focused on reggae music.

It was created by CHARAMEK Co., Ltd and according to the company, it will bring together world-renowned reggae artists and voice actors.

Character designs are by the illustrator hotake.

A note that this is the first-ever 2D music project to fully embrace reggae music, up until now barely explored in 2D music.

Sinopsis/Story details

Set in Neo-Zion, a reggae country.
Thanks to the activities of “Oneness”, the peace of the nation has been maintained for many years.
However, one day, a group calling themselves “Babylon-Nova” hijacks speakers all over the country and declares a reggae revolution.
They quickly swept the top charts with their exciting music.

In response to the confusion caused by the rise of new powers (Babylon-Nova), the largest audition ever was held across the country, Ragga Clash.
Few selected young people (challengers) gather here focused on obtaining wealth and fame!

What is Ragga Clash?

Ragga Clash is one of the largest audition events ever held by “One Senpai”. It seems that the event was held to discover young talents with awareness of the new power, Babylon-Nova.
Regardless of age or gender, any interested person can participate. Those chosen will be given money, and the right to make a CD debut, among many other things.

Who is Babylon-Nova?

A mysterious reggae group that was worried about the decline of reggae as a nation due to “Oneness”. One day, they hijacked speakers all over the country and raised the signal of revolution.
With its innovative and provocative sound, the grou+ has begun to be worshiped, especially by the residents of the slums.
Rumor has it that the group was active mainly in the “slums”, but that was never clarified.
