    That's an interesting thought..

    I feel like most of the people who were there the first time don't come to SSO much anymore, but maybe we can get some of the non-regulars and new comers in. We need some suggestions from the thread as well, because I have no idea what's going on in anime outside of Akira Toriyama's world.

    I could host it again. This time I've got 2 monitors, so I can do the stream on my main, and use the other for chat and queuing up videos. Still though, it is a pain in the ass, and I wish there was an easier way than using twitch.

    ..actually, side Fiction for now and grab See Saw's Dream Field album first.

    See Saw was her band with Chiaki Ishikawa and most of the Dream Field album are the songs from .Hack, Noir and Gundam Seed, all are great. If there's one album that truly defines Kajiura's style, Dream Field is it.

    For Fiction, there's actually only 3 albums. 2 with Yuuka (Destination, Circus), and 1 with everyone else including Yuuka (Everlasting Songs). All are good (Destination is worth it for Akatsuki no Kuruma alone), but since you're just coming from a Kalafina binge, go for Everlasting Songs. Both Keiko and Wakana have some shining moments there.

    Hope all that helps on the Yuki Kajiura 101.

    With Kalafina's discography, going the single route is easy as it's pretty much all the anime songs, most I'd imagine you're familiar with.

    Albumwise, it's best to listen chronologically as it familiarises you with the group overall. IMO, due to the songwriting, the first 3 are my favorites, with Seventh Heaven topping the list. The next 2 are also amazing, though I'm leaning towards After Eden over Red Moon at the moment, due to the song calibre (some of the best songs not released as singles).

    The next 2 things dwindle a bit. You may like Consolation more than I do as it has the Fate songs, but it does have gems like Hanataba and Signal (which sounds much better live). Far On The Water, as I said before, is still growing on me. Not to say these 2 albums are bad, they're still great, just the songs aren't as strong as the first 3. IMO of course.

    For best ofs, Red and Blue were also released in CD format so there's that.

    As for FictionJunction... watch this space...

    Agreed with the band. The accordion player is also a highlight, and I didn't expect a violin through a wah pedal to be so enjoyable. The guitarist I believe is a composer in his own right as well, he's basically a mainstay in Kajiura's live band.

    Having said all that, you may want to take the Kajiura viewing in doses rather than rushing them in one big consumption. Because of her compositional nature, everything gets blurry and samey after a while. I got sick of her stuff during the height of Tsubasa Chronicles (another anime I haven't bothered watching), during a FictionJunction overload. And while the Revo/Kajiura collab was back in 2008, leave that absolutely for last. That one, like everything Revo related has too much going on sonically so you kinda have to prepare for it.

    But in the end, it's all essential viewing. Seriously...

    What makes Kalafina special is the 3 distinct voices. Sure it's more of your typical Yuki Kajiura shtick (but ooh what a shtick), but the solid lineup as opposed to the many vocalists of FictionJunction is refreshing. Plus every song you hear each singer exercise their strengths. Hikaru's got the trebly J-pop voice down pat, but also can be very deceptive and change her tone and range often from song to song. Wakana is, well, Wakana, possibly the most well ranged of Kajiura's vocalists. And Keiko, has an amazing low pitched body and presence in her voice that I'm so in love with. The latter 2 are FictionJunction veterans so that helps a lot as well. Put the three together and it's goosebumps inducing. Sometimes I kinda wish they still had Maya just to make make songs like ARIA sound better live.

    Glad you love the Best Blue/Red days. I forgot that was released this year so it has songs from all 5 of their albums. Though admittedly I'm still warming up to Far On The Water. It's a bit of a slow grower compared to their first 3. Then again, I have all 5 albums in my car back to back right now so...

    Have to break this msg up.
