Yuki Kajiura twits about leaving spacecraft & FJC closing & YK Live vol#14 announced!


Today Yuki Kajiura confirmed ( 1, 2 , 3, 4, 5) what was rumoured by some online articles for about 2 months now.. Yuki Kajiura is leaving Spacecraft produce, after more than 20 years working with them. She will stay independent, she will contunue to compose music in general. However FictionJunction Club (her fanclub) will close. She also announced Yuki Kajiura Live vol#14 which will have limited concerts due to not having spacecraft support.

Yuki Kajiura Live vol #14
Dates: June 30 – July 12

Venue: Maihama Ampitheater (Chiba, Tokyo):
June 30, 2018
July 1, 2018
July 15, 2018

Venue: Osaka NHK Hall (Osaka, Japan):
July 12, 2018

As for the vocal groups, for Kalafina things will stay the same concerning the lives and the upcoming movie, but, according to this oricon news, spacecraft is now looking for a new producer for them, so that means that in the future maybe their songs will be written by other people and not Yuki Kajiura. For FJ there is no specific menthion however since new lives were announced chances are she will still work with them.

thanks to Westkana, random and yuki.n for the news!

    There’s no confirmation that Yuki will continue writing songs for Kalafina:

    “They are looking into who will produce [Kalafina’s] songs in the future.”

    Im going to fix it, there was some misinterpretation from the people that usually translate the news.

    Dear God Above:

    Please let this be the moment where Yuki stops producing all this Pop Garbage and goes back to her roots in FictionJunction, creates another solo album, and creates more World-influenced amaze-balls songs like The World, Kioku, Emerald Green, Sweet Song, Lotus, Red Rose, Liminality, ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC

    Love, Tarryl (aka TRal55)

    Kalafina might not be as good as her old works but they are certainly not classified as “garbarge”. You havent listened to enough terrible songs if you think of them like that.

    They say “every goodbye is a new beginning”, but it’s still so sad for me… :'(

    I considered Kalafina not just the three girls but including Yuki Kajiura and the FBM. So this news feels like leaving a band member and its just so sad. T.T

    All the best to Kajiura-sensei during this transition period. One thing’s certain, she knows how to surround herself with quality talent to help breathe life into her works. She’s the Great Fiction-Maker, after all, and I’m anxiously awaiting whatever she sets her hand to. Somehow, I don’t think this will unduly affect certain things, i.e., they’d be crazy to have someone else complete the ‘Heaven’s Feel’ trilogy, and seeing as her scores are one of SAO’s main selling points, I’m sure she will at least be asked to do more for it. Me, I’m hoping for ‘Prin-Prin’ Season 2 with Kajiura score! And wow was this a long comment…!

    i get mixed feelings about this… at some point i’m curious as to what other composers might do with kalafina (sometimes i wonder what kind of song would sawano hiroyuki-san write for them ^^’a)..

    but kalafina is of kajiura-san’s color (i can’t decide if that means good or bad)…

    idk… with their 10th anniv this year, this news somehow feels like good bye ;;_;;

    or maybe i’m just thinking too much…

    well, best wishes both for kajiura-san and kalafina 🙂

    I would love to see a collaboration between Yuki Kajiura x Hiroyuki Sawano just like she did with Revo. But please don’t make him produce Kalafina as he would make it as generic as his songs (just listen to his work with Do As Infinity last year, totally killing their signature and [nZk]Saucing-iT ).
    I rather think about someone else: Keiichi Okabe, his style would match very well with Kalafina. “Song of the Ancients”, “Kuroi Uta”, “Weight of the World”… such masterpieces could have totally been sang by Kalafina. Furthermore, his New-FR language is very close to Kajiurago.

    Btw, I feel very disappointed now, with Yuki Kajiura which in around one year,
    – miss an opportunity to work with Hollywood (following SAO Concert canceled)
    – miss a solid opportunity to perform for Tokyo Olympics 2020, if leaving Kalafina (I think it could have been possible !)

    That is a sad news. for sure Kalafina’s songs are not the same in the last 4 years, but Kalafina’s core is Yuki.
    Anyway, hope the best for all parties and I still have faith in Yuki and hope her style is back as good as ever.

    Good luck everyone

    Kalafina won’t be the same for me without Kajiura sensei. At least she’s still around so I will still support them in whichever way I can. Be strong Kajiura sensei and everyone on the team!

    No loss here, I also think Kalafina is pop “garbage”. Glad to see YK back on her own. I hope she sees this as a brave new opportunity to compose more brilliance like here older works from Fiction Junction, .hack//SIGN, etc. Best Wishes to Kajiura! RIP Kalafina.
