The vocal group’s talent agency Space Craft Produce announced on its official website that female vocal unit Kalafina is disbanding. According to the announcement, the group has been virtually inactive since the departure of its two members and Kalafina’s founder and producer Yuki Kajiura from Space Craft Produce. The agency also said that they have already examined all possible activities for the unit to resume activities, but ultimately came to the conclusion that the group will have to formally disband.
Kalafina was formed by music composer Yuki Kajiura in 2007 to perform theme songs for the Garden of Sinners anime series. Kajiura brought over two of the original members from his Fiction Junction project, Wakana Otaki and Keiko Kubota, as the first members of Kalafina. Shortly after, vocalists Maya Toyoshima and Hikaru Masai were added to the group.
In February 2018, Kajiura announced his departure from Space Craft Produce. Keiko Kubota left the group last April 2018, and Hikaru Masai followed suit, announcing her departure from the group on Ocotber 2018.
The group enjoyed popularity among anime fans, having performed theme songs to various anime series such as Garden of Sinners, Black Butler, Sound of the Sky, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero, Fate/stay night (Unlimited Blade Works), Time of Eve, and the ED to Katsugeki! Touken Ranbu as their most recent work. Throughout their ten-year career, the group has released 21 singles and six full studio albums.
