Introduction

Visual Prison is an original project created by the renowned composer, best known for his work in the Uta no Prince-Sama franchise, Noriyasu Agematsu.

In collaboration with A-1 Pictures and Aniplex, this project is going to kick off with an original anime series, set to premiere in October 2021.

Synopsis

A vampire.

A person with a high level of intelligence and beauty who has eternal life.
Living in the darkness, they loved music, sang songs, and produced many things.
Humans have been enthusiastic about their music without knowing that many of those artists are not human beings.
The style called “visual-kei” was one of them.

To the present day.

Vampires have gathered in Harajuku, Tokyo, Japan.



“Go under the “Red Moon” that shows where the annual vampire banquet “Visual Prison” will be held.”


Under the Red Moon, the vampires’ abilities increase, and they develop a boundary called Prison to create a stage and attract audiences with their performances.

And every year, on the day of the feast in October, the person who dedicated the “most beautiful song” to the “red moon” is blessed with great power.
