The official website for the upcoming original TV anime for fall 2021 Visual prison posted a main visual and a PV of 110 seconds. The series produced by A-1 Pictures is scheduled to premiere in Japan on October 8, 2021.
The total of 10 main characters from the three anime story groups – O ★ Z, LOS † EDEN, and ECLIPSE – all come together in this awesome main visual. The slogan, “Music connects thoughts and becomes a link.” expresses the desire of those who live the fate of vampires to confront themselves and their friends through “songs” in the story.
The second clip features the OP theme song from the anime “Zankoku Shangri-La” sung by one of the three story groups, O ★ Z, as well as new scenes and dialogue from the main characters. Keywords from the story such as “red drops”, “red moon” and “half vampire” are scattered throughout the video.
Angel Yuki is a young boy unable to adapt to his surroundings and who has a strong sense of loneliness inside. When he finds himself alone in the world, he leaves his hometown to visit Harajuku, a city where the artists he admires are active. He encounters a live battle between the visual-kei unit ECLIPSE and LOS † EDEN. As Angel is overwhelmed by their energetic stage performance, he is suddenly struck with a pain in his chest. At this moment, Ange wakes up as “Dhampir”, half-vampire, half-human.
In addition, Yutaka Kyan and June Utahiroba, two members of the Japanese aerial visual-key group Gold bomber (“air” means they don’t actually play any installments on stage) are confirmed to make a guest appearance in the anime. The number of episodes they will appear in will be announced at a later date.
