Inspired by the visual kei music genre known for its goth aesthetic and heavy metal music, Visual Prison takes everything the subculture represents and adds its brand of anime drama to deliver something psychedelic. 

The newly released visuals are also up to the standards I expected.

The trailer starts with two moons in the night sky, hinting that something supernatural is afoot. 

After a few seconds of calm, the metal music kicks in, and the trailer takes off from there. We soon get a montage of various bands as they hit their chords, from mics that look like rapiers and stake to costumes that remind you of tales such as wonderland. The video is sure to leave you in awe.

Though I am in the camp of 2D animation, the use of 3DCG in Visual Prison seems to be quite good. 

The perfect blend of various animation techniques, stylized art style, and music is sure to have us all dazzled in the fall.

The bands and music strike a chord deep within him.
