Record Of Lodoss War OST
- Sakasama no Niji (Upside-down Rainbow)
- Mori no Juujirou (Crossroads in the Forest - A Japanese song with an Arabic touch)
- Hikari no Suashi (Barefoot in the Light - Main Ending theme of "Chronicles of the Heroic Knight")
Sawaguchi's songs are notably delicate and classical. Sakasamano Niji, is a song about a lonely person who probably lived a life without someone loving her (in which points out to be a girl). Her voice in this song has ghostly values, which actually gives an almost impression of the song which she tried to convey. The lyricist, as for now on default is probably written by Sawaguchi herself. Her skills in singing are very interesting and it is good to further her works in the future.
