Clara and Alice
ClariS (formerly known as Clara Alice) is a female J-pop duo. Originally they posted covers of songs in Nico Nico Douga since 2009, but their voices attracted the attention of Vocaloid music producer kz, who wrote a few songs for them. In 2010 they became major and their first single "irony" was used as the opening for Oreimo. Since then, their popularity has grown significantly, spawning even their own Nendoroid figures.

One characteristic of this group is that their members have never revealed their real names or faces to the public, as they were minors when they started out, and even now they continue to stay out of the public eye so they can focus on their studies. Thus, in their singles they're represented by illustrations by popular anime artists (the one pictured at the left was drawn by Hiro Kanzaki, the artist for Oreimo, for "irony"'s cover).

In 2014 Alice left the duo to focus on her studies, being replaced by a new vocalist called Karen.


ClariS's current releases:




  • "Birthday" (2012)
  • "Second Story" (2013)
  • "Party Time" (2014) (Last release with Alice)

Tropes pertaining to Claris:

  • Symbol Motif Clothing: Clara wears moon motifs, Alice wears sun motifs, and Karen uses star motifs.
  • The Unmasking: After a concert in 2017, Clara and Karen unmasked for their dedicated fans under the condition that the fans did not take any photos (a condition that appears to have been complied with for the most part). This was the only known instance, in the group's history, of any of the singers showing their faces to fans. However, this was no longer true as of 2020, when Sacra Music made the decision to officially unmask Clara and Karen for ClariS' 10th Anniversary LIVE event.
