Yuki Kajiura to compose for ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica’ anime

October 29th, 2010

According to Anime New Network (as confirmed by the anime’s official site ) Yuki Kajiura is going to score the music for a magical girl type anime called Puella Magi Madoka Magica! This is the first time she works on a purely mahou shoujo anime, so we can expect a different style of music from her :).

Other staff for the anime include:

  • Akiyuki Shinbo (Bakemonogatari, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Hidamari Sketch, and Arakawa under the Bridge)[Director]
  • Takahiro Kishida (Durarara!!, Serial Experiments Lain, Noein – to your other self) [Character Design]
  • Ume Aoki (Hidamari Sketch) [Original Characters Design]
  • Gen Urobuchi (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Blassreiter, Fate/Zero) [Series Composition, Scripts]
  • Animation Studio: SHAFT

Thanks to Chibi-Chibi and ABC!

    I’m wonder that how will it be…ah..waitin’….I’m quite disappointed with her recent OSTs…(not for Historia one..that is very good! But Pandora Heart and Kara no Kyoukai are…= =…)

    Actually Kara no Kyoukai is really good if you except all the SFX tracks (because they put the sound into the Discs just as it was used in the movies, without excluding short tracks and tracks with sound effects) which are normally excluded. As for Pandora Hearts, the first OST was awesome, what dissappointed me was the 2nd one because it had lots of repeated melodies.

    yeah exactly ,,,,many of her OTS r diffrent like EL CAZADOR DE LA BRUJA in that ost many of tracks were based on spanish italian folk music, in Pandora Hearts she make music which completly fit to this Anime Like and old music,in sinner’s movie she creat a music full of suspense and scaryness ,……….
