Magic, and sakura - Kalafina - Magia, AKB48 - Sakura no Ki ni Naro & much more! - in Music and Movie update!


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com. Around 200 new items are covered in this week, including new J-Pop, Anime as well as Japanese, Hong Kong and Western movie releases and much more.

Kalafina's first hit in 2011 is Magia, a hard rock tune with a strong melody and rich vocals. Fall once again into the dark magical world of Kajiura Yuki, the composer and lyricist behind the famous .hack franchise and the Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles series. The song is the ending theme of Mahou Shojo Madoka Magia, a magical girl show with a twist. Produced by the staff behind Bakemonogatari and Durarara!, the series is definitely more than just pastel cute.

The coupling song Snowfalling is vocalized version of the music played during the ending of Sora no Kyoukai. Relive the bittersweet sweet scene where Ryougi Shiki finally found herself.

The Sakura season coincides with the graduation ceremony in Japan. AKB48 will sing out the conflicting emotions of the high school graduates in Sakura no Ki ni Naro. Fans of Maeda Atsuko and her band MINT must not miss the third track Kiss made 100 miles, their newest song. The CD+DVD packs contain the full versions of their MTVs and their fashion shows.
