Anisong Duo ClariS Seeks Fan Arts Inspired by THE FIRST TAKE Performance Videos



Anisong duo ClariS made their major debut with their first single “irony” (Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai TV anime opening) on October 20, 2010, and is celebrating their debut’s 12th anniversary today on October 20, 2022. Clara and Karen, the current two members of the unit, have posted messages of thanks to fans on Twitter.


Clara: “ClariS 12th Anniversary! I have been able to keep singing this long because of all of you who have received my songs and cared for me! Thank you for always making me happy! I will keep improving ClariS so that you will love us even more in the year to come! Let’s make it a year full of smiles together!” 




Karen: “We are celebrating our debut’s 12th anniversary today♪ We are grateful for the support of so many people and for the environment that allows us to try new things for the first time even after 12 years. This past year has been the best year for us as we have been able to deliver our songs from many different places and meet many new people! Let’s keep making wonderful memories with us!”




Meanwhile, they have been seeking fan arts inspired by their recent two one-take performance videos for THE FIRST TAKE – “Connect” (the 2011 TV anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica opening theme) and “ALIVE” (the summer 2022 TV anime Lycoris Recoil opening theme).


Please post your ClariS fan art on Twitter with the hashtag #ClariSart. Fan art will be selected at random and will be retweeted or featured (for free) on the Spotify Canvas of ClariS songs. Express your love for ClariS with your illustration!
