Yuki Kajiura has announced via her twitter account, that on September 25, 2015 she will hold one more twitter event, this time for Kalafina’s new 5th album far on the water.
Date: September 25, 2015
Time: 21:30 Japan Time we press “play button”
Two rounds, for those that start from middle
The form of the event will like that: At 21:30 Japan time, YK and fans, all press “play” button of their music player device, and comment every song. Kajiura will be writing her own comments and reply to fan questions. There will be 2 rounds of CD play and comments for those that catch up in the middle. This event is organised by Kajiura herself, and has no relation to spacecraft or Sony.
An other thing she announced, is the during preparations for a live (probably summer’s Yuki Kajiura Live 12 where she did a good number of SAO tracks), one of the technicians noticed a pitch problem in SAO Original Soundtrack 2, (which fans noticed since it came out). Kajiura says she feels really sorry about this, and now Aniplex announced a reprint and replacement program for those that purchased it. According to the announcement the tracks that have pitch problem are tracks #6-26 (“a new world of fairies” – “dance with me”) Click HERE for ANNOUNCEMENT PAGE in japanese
To quote ANN‘s translation of the page/ YK’s twits:
“In their apology, Aniplex has invited any customers with faulty CDs to send in their name, address, phone number and disc to them so that they may be replaced with corrected soundtracks and the faulty discs can be thrown out.
Yuki Kajiura, the composer of the soundtrack, has since released a series of tweets addressing the mistakes, regretting that it has taken this long for staff to notice them.

“To those that have been enjoying the CD until now, I’ve only just heard all of the mistakes in the songs. I simply can’t believe I didn’t notice until just now. I truly feel terrible about this.”
PS: A little while after this soundtrack release, Aniplex had apoligised before once more, but at that time because track #16 “sorrowfully” of SAO I OST 2 was same as track #3 of SAO I OST I “at our parting”. But at that time they did no action to replace. Lets hope they remember this and dont include it in the new copies.
