Debuted at #1 on the Oricon charts. As far as I know, neither Aimer nor Kalafina ever reached #1 before. I’m not sure if a Yuki song has hit #1 since the FJ Yuuka days. I’m hoping this success motivates Aimer and Yuki to collaborate on an entire album. It’s nice that Yuki is busy with so many soundtracks, but I want more pop songs released in full length albums.
^ I am fine with soundtracks, she was out of them for many years, as for Aimer, maybe YK will be asked to do some of her album exclusive songs but nothing more than that. She didnt left Kalafina to work with Aimer, she collaborates with Aimer because ufotable though her voice would be good for Heaven's Feel
^ Why would the use Kimetsu bgm for a Fate cm ? In this one they advertise some posters, but i have no idea why they use some unreleased bgm. My guess its from the HF 2 and they are ok with using it because the movie is already on theaters
I don't know WHY they would use something else. It just felt like the choir sounds more like the Kimetsu PV than standard Kajiura. That doesn't mean it couldn't be Fate though. I mean, they were probably done around the same time.
Either way, not impressed. Fuck those choirs and strings.
Based on a camrip that's a recording of a recording (srsly), the first soundtrack was better, imo. Might change my mind once I can actually listen to the OST release.
-I beg you is one of the main motifs. It can be heard on the trailer that had the first sample of I beg you. It's the part before the twinkly bgm.
-Intro credits is once again Kasahara x Tokyo Konsei. It's a lot shorter though, and not as good as The flower will bloom.
-There's some brass, but pretty minimal.
-Only solo vocalist is Kasahara, and she only gets like two small parts. (excluding the reused songs from the previous movie).
Lots of strings though!
I think the whimsical tracks during Sakura's dream and the ones from the last scene were my favorites.
