Members of the three-piece group, Kalafina, have decided to disband, according to a recent report by Sports Hochi.

This announcement comes just a few weeks after Yuki Kajiura officially announced her departure from her agencySpacecraft Produce, purportedly due to contract disputes, which began around December of last year. After Kajiura’s departure, things were said to have gone awry behind the scenes.

Kalafina has decided to end their unit by Spring of this year. Their last performance happened on March 11 at a live event in Toyosu, leaving their schedule entirely blank thereafter. The group’s 10th anniversary film is still set for March 30, 2018 and will run as a limited release until April 12. The group’s radio show, Kalafina Club, is still broadcasting but has also already announced its final episode at the end of March.


Kajiura was, by and by, a main member of Kalafina, but stayed mostly behind the scenes, handling the group’s production. They have released five studio albums and 21 singles, plus 2 compilation albums.
