Still alive and collecting stuff! XD. I haven’t done a CD loot post for some time as well and with the theme song for Kara no Kyoukai’s “Mirai Fukuin” film recently released on CD, what better time to do it then now? LOL

“Hallelujah”, sung by Kalafina, is the song that will be used as the theme song for the latest Kara no Kyoukai film (Mirai Fukuin) that was released in Japanese cinemas recently. Two editions are available to be purchased; a regular edition and a limited anime press edition with the limited edition containing a special booklet promoting the film as well as a sticker and slipcase. The song itself is quite happy and uplifiting, which is a rather nice change from most of the previous theme songs Kalafina did for the original 7 movies & epilogue, where they were quite sad and painful (yet still beautiful to listen to thanks to Yuki Kajiura’s production).
The tracklisting for the limited edition contains 4 tracks:
1. アレルヤ (Hallelujah)
3. fairytale ~2012 Christmas LIVE ver.~
4. 君が光に変えて行く (Kimi ga Hikari ni Kaete Yuku) ~2012 Christmas LIVE ver.~
And photos of the special booklet that came with this edition to promote “Mirai Fukuin”
And a photo of the bonus sticker that came with the limited edition which uses the same promotional image that was first used for the 3D re-release of Fukan Fukei a few months back.
I wasn’t planning to get the regular edition until I saw the tracklist for it and the limited edition one and noticed the difference.
Tracklist for the regular edition:
1. アレルヤ (Hallelujah)
3. seventh heaven ~2012 Christmas LIVE ver.~
4. snow falling ~2012 Christmas LIVE ver.~
As you can see, the regular edition contained the 2012 Christmas live versions of “Seventh Heaven” and “Snow Falling” in place of the live versions of “fairytale” and “Kimi ga Hikari ni Kaete Yuku” that was on the limited edition. Me being a particular fan of “Seventh Heaven” (it’s in my top 3 Kara no Kyoukai theme songs), I knew I just had to get the regular edition as well lol.
While I’m still on the topic of Kara no Kyoukai’s “Mirai Fukuin”, just won a bunch of new merchandise goods off Yahoo Japan Auctions that were produced and sold exclusively at the Japanese cinemas screening the film. It’s just as I predicted in my last Kara no Kyoukai post where it was certain that a whole new wave of merchandise goods would be made to promote the new film lol, not to also mention some other goods are appearing on the official Kara no Kyoukai online shop as web exclusives. I have also managed to snag about half of the stuff from that online shop off Yahoo Japan Auctions which I’ll be requesting shipping for them soon.
