Gekijouban Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Kouhen) -Eien no Monogatari- hits theatres in Japan this Saturday. To commemorate the occasion, Kalafina, the artiste behind Eien no Monogatari‘s theme song Hikari Furu, will appear as guests on a special Nico Live stream.

So if you’re fan of the neoclassical-slash-gothic Anisong pop group, make sure to tune in to the stream this Saturday, October 13 at 9PM Japan time (GMT+0900 hours) or 8PM Singapore time (GMT+0800 hours). Here’s the URL in case you want something to copy-and-paste:

Most of the stream will consist of a talk corner where the members of Kalafina share their thoughts on the movie and other Madoka Magica related material with MC Akihito Tomita. After the talk segments, Kalafina will perform Hikari Furu “live”.

And if that’s not enough,  the full music video for Hikari Furu will also be shown for the first time on the livestream, alongside that of ClariS’s Luminous (ルミナス), which was the theme song for the first Madoka Magica movie.

The two films are a re-compiled version of the award-winning anime series that aired on TV in Japan last year, with Gekijouban Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Zenpen) -Hajimari no Monogatari- [Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie (Part 1)  -The Story of the Beginning-] setting up the premise and introducing key characters and themes in the series.

Part 1 made its way to theatres in Japan last Saturday. Part 2 [(Kouhen) -Eien no Mongatari- which translates to “The Story of Eternity”] will unveil the dark secrets behind magical being Kyubey’s source of powers, and ultimately kill off several of the series’ key characters before getting to a bitter-sweet ending. In other words, this is not a children’s show.
