So without further ado, for those of you who are going to Anime Expo and are very much interested in anime music, I’ll be doing a presentation that focuses entirely on Yuki Kajiura’s music. Details for the event are as follows:

2010′s Anime Music in Review – Intros/Outros Edition

While much of our staff’s focus tends to fall on the BGM/instrumental tracks, the vocal stuff isn’t forgotten since a lot of it does serve as a first impression of sorts as to what we should expect out of an anime.
