Sawano leaves Legendoor Inc

As of July 2017, Sawano Hiroyuki’s management contract with Legendoor Inc has ended after 12 years.

It is believed that Sawano Hiroyuki will be under his own management. The new company, VV-ALKINE is assumed to be run by Sawano Hiroyuki.  We believe this change will NOT affect SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] and only affects Sawano’s soundtrack releases. We will provide further information on the new management as we receive it.
What does this mean for Kisetsu no Uta?
There have been questions regarding how this change will affect Kisetsu no Uta. KnU’s daily operations will continue to run as per usual, there will be no major impact to our activities. Please note that KnU has always been a separate entity to Legendoor and so this management change will not impact us. We will look forward to support the new management in future!
As usual thank you all for your continued support of Kisetsu no Uta and we hope you will embrace the change in Sawano Hiroyuki’s journey along with us!

A public online chat for Sawano fans!

Interested in talking to other people who are interested in Hiroyuki Sawano’s music? Well there’s now a public Discord chat for those interested!

Kisetsu-no-Uta has affiliated with the Sawano Hiroyuki Discord Fan Server to bring up a public forum to talk all things Sawano Hiroyuki!

The chat is a community for Sawano fans, however the topic of discussion isn’t locked to Sawano only. There are different text channels for different topics, but you can really talk about anything.

If you’re unaware, Discord is a messaging and voice chat application. You can use the app or web browser to access. You can download an application for your computer, and create an account to use the application at

A quick rundown of the rules of the chat (you can see these rules within the chat itself if you need to):

1. Don’t Spam.
2. Don’t bully.
3. Try to keep the topics within the respective channel.
4. Don’t Spoil.
5. Don’t ask for a staff rank.
6. Cursing/swearing is fine, just try not to do it in excess.
7. No NSFW content. At all.
8. Don’t post anything *disturbing* or *screwed up* in all chats.
9. Differences in opinions are good, just keep things civil. We want to avoid hostility in this chat.
10. If there is leaked information about a video game or anime, for example, it must be kept within #spoilers. This does not apply to leaked music, as you cannot describe a song with words, but you must not link any downloads to leaked music, as the following rule applies.
11. Do not post any download links for any of Sawano’s albums in chat. This applies to all music and other media as well. I know we all love his music, but please support the artist through buying their albums on websites like or

Happy 2nd anniversary KnU!

This year we celebrate two years since we first launched Kisetsu no Uta, what started as a three member team has now grown into a group of 7! This year we formed an alliance with the Russian Sawano Hiroyuki fan group and welcomed Dmitry into our team. A few months back we welcomed Crimsondramon who is now working as our translator, you will see the hard work he has done very soon!Thank you once again to my wonderful KnU family for working hard from the day you’ve joined us! We’ll have to find a way to celebrate together even if we’re not all on the same continent!

Thank you to Sawano’s team who have given us our blessings, as well as all the vocalists and musicians that have supported us. We hope that through Kisetsu no Uta, we can promote not only Sawano Hiroyuki but also the people behind the music! The vocalists and the musicians are an integral part of Sawano’s work and so we hope to be able to support you as much as we support Sawano.

In the coming year we hope to organise more exclusive interviews as we have in the past, due to busy schedules we were not able to bring you new interviews this year, but we hope to make up for it in future!

Thank you to all the Sawano Hiroyuki fans across the world who have been supporting us and taking part in our activities. Without you KnU would not be what it is today! I hope you’ll continue to support us and in return we hope to provide you content that you wish to see here! The KnU team is forever growing so if you are ever interested in joining us, please feel free to reach out to us!

Once again, on behalf of the Kisetsu no Uta team, I thank you all very much! Cheers to another Sawanoistic year!
