Today it was announced that Yuki Kajiura will take part in Composers Summit Concert 2018, on December 28, 2018, along with Go Shiina and with Akira Senju as special guest. Musicians & Vocalists will be announced in the future.
Date: December 28,2018 Venue: Tokyo International Forum Hall A Artists: Yuki Kajiura / Go Shiina Special Guest: Akira Senju
Musicians & Vocalists will be announced later. Event official site:http://www.csc2018.jp/
Akira Senju is known for his work in Full Metal Alchemist, Yomigaeri, Tales of Vespiria and Gundam Victory (back in 1992), while Go Shiina is known for his work at Tekken, God Eater and Idolmaster, Ace Combat 3, and various other of the Tales of games. Both composers seem to mainly work under Bandai Namco, and judging from vol #14 credits, Kajiura is probably going to do that too in the future. With them doing mainly games soundtracks, we can guess that in the tracklist for Kajiura’s part, there will be many Xenosaga musics, as it was a namco game.
The SAO USA and the japanese website have updated with new PV for the upcoming 3rd season of the Sword Art Online anime, that will start airing on October 10, 2018. The new anime will adapt volumes 9 – 18 of the novel, the arc named “Alicisation”, and is confirmed to adapt it at its entirety according to ANN. Yuki Kajiura is confirmed to be composing the music again, as you can see by the new trailer BGM as well as the credits screen at the end.
