Kalafina “heavenly blue” PV – now on iTunes!

November 5th, 2014

On Octomber 17, was announced that the short ver of a heavenly blue PV, would be available on GyaO! for a week’s time for japanese IPs to watch. This was quite surprising considering that usually PVs are used to promote the releases they are for, and arent made after these have come out, especially since the song was released not only on “The Best Blue” but also as Anime ver single. According to this blog, they decided to make this PV because of the good response of people to the song (after the anime began broadcast in July of this year, the internet was abuzz with comments about how much people liked this song), and because “heavenly blue” has already been released three months ago, they had to hurry to make the PV.

The full PV is now available on japanese iTunes to download for just 400Yen (difference of LE and RE price). You need Japanese iTunes account to download.

Below is the short ver to see if you like it :)

In other news, it was announced, that Kalafina will make an appearance in the public live broadcast of FM-FUJI’s programme “STADIUM ROCK!!”.

Date: November 11 (11/08)
Time: 17:00~19:30 (JST)
Place: Yoyogi Studio ViViD

Also, on Kalafina’s 2 「Kalafina LIVE TOUR 2014」 concerts on (Oct 18, Nov 1), during the intermission, a new song was played by the Band members and were heard vocals from karaoke, which according to reports is a ballad, and has Keiko and Wakana on chorus and Keiko as main vocal :) Also during both concerts performed Hitoshi Konno’s strings quartet, and a Piano during the acoustic songs. Yuki Kajiura watched both concerts as audience, and Yuriko Kaida accompanied her on the second.

Thanks to a-chan, Smiley, aki, Hatouchan, and Smoshes for the news!
