To get an idea about the song , Kajiura-san wrote yesterday in her blog:

The song for the movie, “Kara no Kyoukai Mirai Fukuin”, which will be releasing this fall, will be sung by Kalafina. It’s a song that came to me (lit. fell into my head) as I finished the last scenes from the early footage of Mirai Fukuin (laughs).

As I listened to the dialogue/lines from the last scene, the first lines for the lyrics just popped out. And as I thought, “Ahh… I want to start the song with these words”, Keiko-chan just suddenly started singing in my head. I thought, “Oh no!”, scrambled to grab the score sheet (^_^:), and wrote the song whilst chasing after the melody flowing in my head. The lyrics are more or less (half) as they were at the time. There’s no mistake that this song was the quickest to be completed in Kalafina’s history.

So, it’s a really simple song but it’s something that feels very right to me. I hope that, as a song for Mirai Fukuin, it is something that everyone will enjoy!

    Thank you for the news and the post from Yuki Kajiura-san’s blog!
    I saw on Facebook that someone transcribes the title of the song as “Hallelujah” which I think is more fitting, considering how the ninth movie is Gospel of the Future.

    I do hope it is keiko centric track. She has none for a single.

    And since it is made very quick… i hope it is not … repetitive.
    Still, Keiko in the song is a nice things. And if she leads, it will be a lot better.

    @ILHaechi : Its the same thing written in different way. The announcement had it as Alleluia.

    Wow, October 2 is just a day after my birthday so I kinda feel touched. Heheh.
    A simple song huh, I wonder how ‘simple’ it is…. Really looking forward to it!

    Thanks for the news <3

    Agh! Can’t wait!! > u <
    These next few months are going to be great♥

    Since there is no LE I wonder if that means there won’t be a PV this time around.

  7. george1234 says:

    ^ Of course there wont be. Without DVD or BD Sony doesnt release PVs, its not JVC. If it happens with the next single too, it will mean they are saving them for the next 5th anniversary release to boost its sales with “exclusive” PVs.

  8. joel_jman says:

    well, I stopped watching their PVs anyways.
    Since the Hikari Furu PV. -bleagh- and some other old PVs out there that were created for the sake of making one.
    Plus I’m not into the looks of the singers so no PV is just okay for me.

    Great! Keiko as a starter! Hopefully this will feature her as main vocal! XD

    keiko as starter…something like seventh heaven song…

  11. Ao says:

    Keiko as the lead? I’m definitely looking forward to hearing it! 😀

  12. Keira says:

    I hope Keiko is the lead vocal on the whole song considering Wakana and Hikaru have their own Lacrimosa and ARIA respectively, not just as a starter…if it is, it has no difference to the other songs that Keiko serves as a starter.

  13. george1234 says:

    ^ I hope so too, but chances are low :S

  14. Keira says:

    Oh, don’t lose hope. Until we haven’t yet heard the whole song. And I’m still hoping for the DVD release of Kaji-Fest. 🙂
