Synopsis by JRock News:
The anime Visual Prison revolves around vampire visual kei musicians who gather in Harajuku, Tokyo, under the “Crimson Moon” annual event called Visual Prison. Towards the display of the vampire banquet, the vampires’ abilities are heightened, and they open the barrier for those called the Princes.
The musicians bring their most beautiful songs to the stage in order to captivate the audience and use these songs as offerings to the Crimson Moon. The ones who succeed in charming the Crimson Moon are awarded ultimate power.
