Kalafina is closely tied to the Garden of Sinners anime movie series having originally formed to provide the first movie’s theme song with their debut single “oblivious”(2008). The group’s creator/producer Yuki Kajiura is responsible for providing all the music for the popular anime movie series. She formed the Kalafina trio from two members (Keiko, Wakana) of her other project FictionJunction along with new member Hikaru. Kalafina has since provided all 7 theme songs for the Garden of Sinners series and now the 8th with their 13th single “Hallelujah”.
Also expect another single announcement from Kalafina as they are providing one of the theme songs (along with ClariS) for another highly anticipated upcoming anime movie Gekijo-ban Maho Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magika [Shinpen] Hangyaku no Monogatari (Madoka Magica the Movie: The Rebellion Story). The movie planned for October 26th 2013, is the 3rd theatrical release and an all new story with the first two released last year being condensed version of the 12 episode anime TV series.
The Garden of Sinners movie series is adapted from stories by Kinoko Nasu and originally ran 7 movies from 2007-2009. The new movie The Garden of Sinners recalled out summer (Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin) adapts the epilogue side story from Nasu. Story and concept creator Kinoko Nasu along with illustrator Takashi Takeuchi founded the popular game and media company Type-Moon. They are also created the popular Fate/stay night series.
