FictionJunction Yuuka

FJ-YuukaI decided to do an Impressions section, which mainly introduces some not so popular singers or stuff. So here goes. The first entry’s dedicated to an awesome duo, FictionJunction Yuuka.

Anime music listeners may have heard of this jpop duo from popular series like Gundam Seed, .hack//roots or Tsubasa Chronicle, but prolly wouldn’t know much of them without some demystifying.

FictionJunction YUUKA is a Japanese pop duo, part of Japanese composer Yuki Kajiura’s solo project FictionJunction, consisting of Yuuka Nanri (vocals) and Kajiura (keyboards). Yuki Kajiura, the brains behind this duo, is in fact part of the female trio, See-Saw, responsible for various popular anime songs. Their first recording was Wheel of Dawn (暁の車, Akatsuki no Kuruma?) which was used as an insert song in the popular mecha anime Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. They have released two singles for MADLAX, two for the Gundam SEED series, and one for .hack//Roots. The duo have also released one album, Destination, which entered the Oricon Weekly Rankings at the ninth spot. Not too blessed in the looks department, Yuuka does have good vocals and Kajiura’s a great composer, well just try some of their songs. I especially liked Aikoi, OST Tsubasa Chronicle.

Some songs to check out:
Silly Go Round – OST .hack//Roots
Aikoi – OST Tsubasa Chronicles
Akatsuki no Kuruma – OST Gundam Seed
