Today Keiko announced via Kalafina’s LINE blog that her contract with Spacecraft has ended and that she’s also leaving Kalafina. Keiko says that she loved the years she passed as Kalafina and is thanking the people who supported her as Kalafina for 10 years. Kalafina will continue (for now) with Wakana and Hikaru. She doesnt menthion any future plans though.
Remember however, that on the Japanese Platform for Patent information, (under “Retrieval keyword” enter “Kalafina” > “search”, > “Search results: 1” and then click on “View List”, click Appl.No.2017-170294 to get the details.) there can be found an application for the “Kalafina” trademark ownership, applied by Keiko Kubota, on December 28, 2017.
This can mean that if Keiko gets the trademark, W and H will have to rebrand themselves. (and if she joins Y.Kajiura’s team again….. 🙂 )
