Yuki Kajiura to compose for “Princess Principal” TV anime!!

March 24th, 2017

Today was announced at the official site of Princess Principal TV anime that Yuki Kajiura will compose its music!!!  The anime will start airing in Summer 2017 (still no set date). Masaki Tachibana is directing the series. Sound Director is Yoshikazu Iwanami. The animation is by 2 studios: Studio 3Hz and Actas.

Plot intro from ANN:

The “spy action” series follows five girls in 19th century London, a city within the Albion Kingdom divided into east and west by a large wall. The girls serve as undercover spies enrolled as students at the prestigious Queen’s Mayfair school. The girls make use of their individual abilities to remain active in the underground world of disguise, espionage, infiltration, and car chases.

There’s also a trailer out with some new BGM 😀

The anime is made to promote a game of the same title (Princess Principle Game of the Missions) that will come out in July

Kalafina made their own, sepate from FJC, fanclub “Harmony”

March 15th, 2017

Today Kalafina got their own new official fanclub called  Harmony
which will be separate and independent from FictionJunction Club (FJC) that Yuki Kajiura made in 2009 and included Kalafina as well. Admission and membership will work very similar to FJC
Members of FictionJunction Club can choose to enroll for both FJC and Harmony (in which case they’ll receive a special present) or they can switch over to Harmony (and their membership in FJC will run out).

You can visit the new fanclub’s page from here

We still dont know if from now on Kalafina will keep their activity on FJC as well.

Remember that from April 4, Kalafina will be in a new sub-label of SME, Sacra Music, so this is probably part of the new promotion policy.

Kalafina「into the world / Märchen」single covarts and tracklist!

February 28th, 2017

The Kalafina LINE blog  has updated with the coverarts and tracklists for their 20th single 「into the world / Märchen」!

This time, there 3 different tracklists for the CD, one for the LEs and RE, one for Anime Ed and one for vinyl. The first has into the world instrumental while the second has Märchen instrumental, and the vinyl has everything. The LEs DVD has only into the world PV while the Anime Edition DVD has Märchen PV and 2 creditless Ending sequences from the OVA (one for ep 1, one for rest of episodes). This all means that to get all the tracks and all the videos you need to buy at least 2 of the single’s editions. Furthermore there’s suprisingly one b-side included! Haru wo Matsu (春を待つ), “= waiting for spring”.

Remember that starting from April 4, Kalafina will be in new sublabel of Sony, SacraMusic, we still dont know if there was any involvement in this single though.
