Golden Bomber, known as the comedic visual kei “air band”, will have two of their members guesting the vampire visual kei anime, Visual Prison. Specifically, bassist Jun Utahiroba and guitarist Yutaka Kyan will be joining the cast.
The announcement made on Visual Prison’s website didn’t disclose any details on what type of role they would be playing. Although, it was mentioned that we’ll receive more information about which episodes they will appear in at a later date.
Since the last time we spoke about Visual Prison, they’ve unveiled more music and other promotional material.
Its triple A-side theme song CD “Zankoku Shangrila / Bloody Kiss / Gyokuza no Gemini” is set to release on October 6, just three days before the anime starts airing. The CD will include each respective theme song by the three fictional bands in the series: O★Z, LOS†EDEN, and ECLIPSE.
Along with the new main visual, the anime also received its second promotional video! It gives us a much better look at the main characters that we’ll be following throughout the story, and we get to hear parts of O★Z’s theme song Zankoku Shangrila too.
