Yuki Kajiura, Creator & Composer Behind Kalafina, Leaves Agency And Group

After 25 years with the talent agency Space Craft Produce, musician and composer Yuki Kajiura has decided to leave the company.

Kajiura has been a prominent force within the anime music scene for decades. The musician has been behind the music used in popular series such as Fate/Zero, Sword Art Online and .hack//Sign.

In addition to creating music, Kajiura created the FictionJunction project. She is also responsible for creating Kalafina, a female music group known internationally, particularly for their works featured in anime series.

Kajiura has been the main creative force behind Kalafina, guiding the group's direction since the beginning. Kalafina will continue without Kajiura, though the musician acknowledged that the group's status and sound may end up changing without her.

According to reports from news agency Sponichi, Kajiura's departure from Space Craft Produce came after new management was put in place that she had difficulties working with. Her new manager was brought on board in 2016, and the two could not agree upon the direction of her music.

In another report by Sponichi, the media outlet cites a sources close to the group who claims that the members of Kalafina are having a difficult time coping with Kajiura's departure. The group currently has no activities planned, and discussions regarding future activities have had a difficult time moving forward.

Kajiura will be working on a freelance basis for the immediate future.

    Kalafina has activities planned like concerts and their upcoming documentary film. Even so, I just can't imagine Kalafina's music (particularly anisongs) without Kajiura T_T
