Tap Trap Love
The official site for Tap Trap Love is now officially open, which means lots of new info. This is a quick translation but the story is as follows:
The year 20XX - Just after the end of World War III.
The Capital of Japan - Tokyo - is overflowing with people and in no longer the place it used to be.
The now multinational centre “City”, called “B-Valley” as the last remains of it’s former nickname, is transforming into a lawless district where the two largest groupt, the SS and the Horde are fighting for dominance.
The only thing that excites the young people in B-Valley is dance. Streetdance, jazz, classical…the district is overflowing with all kinds of dance. What they long for is dancing at the ‘Atomic Theatre’ at the other side of the wall*.
The Heroine who has lost her memories is one of those people.
While undergoing bitter-sweet training lessons with the members of the dance team, she aims for a new stage. To find her past, as well as a new self.
This is certainly, different from what I expected. I expected sweet romance with a dance theme, instead they give us post-war (and probably post apocalyptic) amnesia, with a dance theme. Also, am I the only one thinking that they could have been a bit more subtle with the references?
But the story is not the only thing we get more info on, there is now more info on the characters as well:
From left to right:
Cap (CV: Kamiya Hiroshi): Member of the dance team Euphoria. Gentle and elegant, but his mindset is the most hard-boiled in the entire team.
Dr. Ginger (CV: Itou Kentarou): A doctor in the CITY district. He mainly performs illegal operations, for which he demands a large sum of money, but at hart he is a gentle person.
Joy (CV: Fujiwara Yuuki): The moodmaker of the team, and a DJ at a club called "Justice".
Nico: The heroine. Lost her memories and suffers from aphonia, and communicates through her cellphone. She has a part time job at a hotdog stand. (Oh sue me but I totally thought this would be a shota character, instead it is actually the heroine xD)
Lee (CV: Shimozaki Nobunaga): The heroine her friend, and he also works part-time at the same hotdog stand. He is aiming to become an artist and dreams of drawing his paintings on the wall.
Jackie (CV: Maeno Tomoaki): The leader of Euphoria. Because his hair covers his eyes it is hard to understand his expressions. He doesn't talk much but he is very virtuous.
Leo (CV: Nakai Kazuya): A member of Euphoria, he is a bit of a troublemaker who picks fights easily. He can't hide his emotions, and it takes a while before he can get along with people, but once he trusts you he does so forever.
I am now officially at a complete loss as to what kind of work this is.
