Visual Prison is the upcoming anime by A-1 Pictures that delves into a relatively unknown Japanese music genre known as Visual Kei.
For those who don’t know about Visual Kei, it’s a music movement characterized by varying levels of makeup, elaborate hairstyles, and dazzling costumes coupled with gothic aesthetics.
However, Visual prison goes one step ahead as it turns every musician into a vampire and features three major music bands: Oz, Los†Eden, and Eclipse.
The official website for Visual Prison started streaming the full trailer for the anime, set to release in October 2021. The trailer is fully voiced by the cast and features the insert song “Guilty†Cross” by in-anime rock band Eclipse.
Guilty†Cross is now available for digital purchase on various music platforms.
The trailer starts with a long shot of a city skyline, but weirdly there are two moons in the sky, one blood-red and the other white. Throughout the rest of the trailer, various characters flow in and out of the frame while hinting at relationships between many of them.
True to the visual kei genre, the characters have an eerie beauty, from pale skins to flamboyant hairstyles. The trailer ends with the insert song, Guilty†Cross, playing in the background.
