Composer of the Month – Yuki Kajiura

Overview: Given the sheer number of anime that Yuki Kajiura has composed for along with a signature style that’s very appealing, it’s not surprising to find her ranked so highly amongst anime fans. For many, their first experience with Kajiura’s music came in 2001 through Bee Train’s Noir where they were captivated by her blend of synth, choral, and orchestral music, especially during the action sequences. Riding that wave of success, she would go on to score many notable anime such as My-HiME, Tsubasa Chronicle, and the currently-airing Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Her works on anime have gotten her involved with composing video game music, most notably for the last two games of the Xenosaga franchise. In addition to her anime and video game scores, she also has her hands full working with various vocalists through the years, from Chiaki Ishikawa through See-Saw to the trio of Keiko, Wakana, and Hikaru who form the current incarnation of Kalafina.

In case you’re here to only listen to the soundclips and not read any of the text, below is the master list of all the pieces featured in this profile entry in order. It’ll save time if you don’t want to have to click through each and every track.
