@dedeoded: Katsugeki Touken Ranbu OST wasnt by her but Hideyuki Fukasawa, YK only did the Kalafina song for it. FZ had only few re-recorded songs which werent new wholy. The only ones she worked on was Princess Principal and Heaven's Feel. Oh and Zaregoto was a 2016 work, it just took them ages to release it because of the delay in the animating schedule :)

But i understand that she will want to relax a bit, and she is older than back in 2004, when she wrote much more music in a year, so maybe she gets tired easier, or maybe the whole relax thing is a way to hide under the bed the spacecraft issue :)

Hmm, couldn't disc-2/episode8 have been recorded in 2017?

And I'm pretty sure you meant F/UBW by FZ there? nevermind, just hit me you meant the standalone OST release.

^ Yes it could but i doubt it as they weren't planning to delay it that much, I suppose they ask her to have all the music ready before the episodes come out (even if its OVA), or there is an uncertainity factor, and what if they let her record later and something happens and ep #8 ends up bgm-less ;) ?

and also with the director having the tracks as "M#"s and deciding later which to use where in each ep, for the most of them, she doesnt know which will be used later on, one more reason to record beforehand.

and yes by FZ i mean the 3rd disc of the standalone ost :)

I feel like you're overestimating SHAFT... Well, not that what I suggested was in any way important....

I adore Yuki

Fukasawa did great in Mahoutsukai no Yoru too

So where are we at with this drama? FictionJunction Kalafina's question reminded me of it...

Plus the 10th anni live merch is on the website for the Harmony club and it's Space Craft. So if they were to leave, I would have thought they wouldn't post it. Yay! Phew... not that I would have anything to really worry about. Yuki would continue to make music and Kalafina. (Hopefully some FJ too please?)

HA! I live in her CLOSET!
Hate to be the bringer of bad news, but this is the real deal. Kajiura just announced it over Twitter, she is leaving spacecraft to be independent

さて……1つご報告せねばならない事が。わたくしこの度所属事務所より独立させて頂くこととなりました(^^)。
https://twitter.com/Fion0806/status/966190960135868416

思えばスペースクラフトプロデュースさんには長らくお世話になりました……20年以上ですから。今は有難くも心躍るようなお仕事に多々携わらせて頂いておりますが、そうでない時期もございました。その間も支え続けて下さった事も含めて感謝の言葉しかありません。
https://twitter.com/Fion0806/status/966191160569073664

長期間に渡って色々な事を学ばせて頂きましたが、ここらでそろそろ自分で頑張ってみようかなと(^^)。今後も勿論音楽のお仕事は続けて参りたいと思っております。
https://twitter.com/Fion0806/status/966191356996661249

今までお世話になった同事務所の歌い手さんたちや、Kalafinaについては……いる場所が変わってしまいますので今まで通りと言うわけには参りませんでしょうが、今後も微力ながら応援して参りたい気持ちに変わりはございません♪
https://twitter.com/Fion0806/status/966191546965078016

そしてFJCのメンバーのみなさま、FJC終了のお知らせをすることになってしまい……申し訳ありません。終了時期やそれに伴う詳しいお知らせは後ほどメールでお手元に届くかと思います……。
https://twitter.com/Fion0806/status/966191786132692993

Kajiura's role in Kalafina is uncertain. Also, her fan club, FictionJunction CLUB, is ending.

There's more, I just think this post has gone on long enough

Oh wow, it ended up being true, hue. Well, hopefully things go well for her. Maybe being independent might allow her to take more varied music offers.

I was indebted to space craft produce for a long, if you think...... It's been over 20 years. I have been involved a lot of exciting work grateful now, but there was also a time that is not so.
Sad. I remember the article mentioned getting into arguments with a "female" producer.

Interesting. It doesn't sound like a really bad thing, but we'll see how it goes.

I guess I gotta get those songbooks I'm missing in case spacecraft stops selling her merchandise.

If this means that she will freeely pick up projects she is interested in and be less bounded by what the directors want, i think its a possitive move. I wonder if that will also make her able to write more stuff for FJ now since its long neglected.

However this might affect her releasing her lives on video since it will be difficult to arrange all these cameras and production by herself, but i dont really mind since we mostly get recycled playlists anyway, and the fewer lives will tire the girls less too.
