Visual Prison Vampire Visual Kei Anime releases its first video – News


The second broadcast live Power surge !! special for Visual prison, the original TV anime from Uta no Prince Sama and Symphogear series creator Noriyasu Agematsu and Aniplex‘s A-1 Photos, launched the anime’s first full promo video on Saturday. The video features the voices of the characters as well as the insert song “Guilty † Cross” by the first iteration of in-story rock band Eclipse.


“Guilty † Cross” is now available on various digital music services. The next special to air with the cast will take place next month.

Aniplex describes the project as describing visual kei musicians as vampires. The visual kei genre is a subgenre of Japanese rock characterized by elaborate visual presentations, a Gothic aesthetic, balladic melodic writing, and musicians who present themselves in an androgynous manner. In the story of the anime, the vampires perform visual kei music and meet in Harajuku at an event known as “Visual Prison” under a red moon once a year, performing songs from visual kei to captivate an audience and deliver the best song to the red moon on it.

The story begins when Angel Yuki, a lonely boy with no family, travels to Harajuku to see his favorite artist, and sees an intense musical battle between the bands Eclipse and Lost Eden, their energetic performance making him feel sick.

The actors, divided by their respective units, are:
