When you watch enough anime, theme songs eventually become background noise that you may end up skipping each week. Every so often though, you hear something really cool and catchy and lo and behold, you’ve discovered a new artist to love. That’s how I was introduced to pop duo ClariS, a pair of junior high school girls who were discovered after posting covers of anime themes onto Nico Nico Douga. Having already released singles for OreImo and Madoka Magica, the pair are finally ready to step out and release their first full album!
Ready for the details? Alright, the album is titled 'Birthday’ and will be released on April 11th (CDJapan already has the regular and limited editions available for preorder). The contents will include three previously released singles and eight brand new songs that have never been heard before. Shell out for the limited edition and you also receive the nendoroid figure (ClariS Connect ver.) and a bonus CD with two bonus tracks that are themes of the nendoroid.
