OtapediaFictionJunction - Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)

FictionJunction is a singing group managed by Yuki Kajiura. Kajiura Composes all of the songs the FictionJunction group sings. The term "FictionJunction" by itself refers to all the singers in that band at that time. Solo works between Kajiura and a vocalist are referenced by adding the singer's name after "FictionJunction". For example FictionJunction Ft. LiSA. Although both perform under the FictionJunction title and are collaborations with Kajiura, they are treated as separate projects.
Members of the group include: Yuki Kajiura, Keiko Kubota, Wakana Ootaki, Kaori Oda, Yuriko Kaida and Yuuka Nanri. One off collaborations were also done with Asuka Kato and LiSA.


FictionJunction usually references a group of female singers. However, Kajiura does not consider the group to have “members”. She says "To be honest, FictionJunction is not a 'group.' FictionJunction is just me. Well, actually, it depends on the music and the song. We have gathered several members and singers from everywhere. We don't have 'member' members. I am FictionJunction. But I am 'collecting' all the singers that are powerful and worthy to be in this group. They are true professionals, each individual here. I respect them, and I do look up to them. They have the most beautiful voices, and that's how they're selected."
This situation is quite unique for a popular singing group. Where each vocalist has their own FictionJunction pre-title except Yuriko Kaida. Kajiura considers each of these different individual projects rather than a single under the name of FictionJunction.
