The Princess Principal website updated few days ago, and the previous 6-movies were changed to three (3) movies instead. Also the title of the first Princess Principal movie has been announced to be “Crown Handler”, screening on Japanese cinemas starting April 10, 2020. Yuki Kajiura returns for the soundtrack!
In other news, it has become known from a pre-screening event, that LiSA will sing the ED song for SAO Alicization War of the Underworld, titled “unlasting” but seems to be no Kajiura involvement.
Also, at the end of episode 26 of Kimetsu no Yaiba TV anime, a moviewas announced as sequel titled “Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-Hen (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Train Arc)”, but its still unknown who will be the composer.
Magia Record TV anime has updated with Takumi Ozawa as composer of the soundtrack, who expressed her joy for composing for a universe Yuki Kajiura composed for. ClariS and Trysail are responsible for ED and OP respectively
After a weirdly long wait, and after the song was not released inside one of LiSA’s singles, only its TV size became available on online stores since June 30. On Aug 30 was announced (1, 2) that the full size of “from the edge” will be released digitally on September 2, 2019.
Interestingly, according to Y.Kajiura’s tweets:
The chorus at the end of the TV size is sang by LiSA herself (even though it sounds like Chiaki or Fion) (1, 2)
Takahashi “Jr” Tomoharu and Koichi Korenaga did chorus for the song (apparently the english part before the refrain) (1, 2)
