Stargazing: Mirai - Kalafina

We're back with another year of 31 Days of Stargazing! Every day in the month of December, we'll be featuring a new Japanese song that radiates that special "winter feel". We hope you'll join us and discover some new music!

Day 1 kicks off with a song from the Maho Shojo Madoka Magica movie soundtrack, 'Mirai'. Performed by the hauntingly powerful voices of Kalafina, this song is an evolved form of a well-known soundtrack piece featured in the original TV animation. By adding some really great vocals and some pretty epic additional instrumentals, it feels way more powerful than its original piece.
