Five months after the announcement that one of Claris' duo, Alice, will graduate from the J-pop idol unit to focus on her studies, the nineteenth volume of LisAni! magazine announced a new member. Karen, who is also an active high schooler like Clara, will replace Alice.
On January 7th, ClariS will release their eleventh single, "border," which will be Tsukimonogatari's ending theme.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I loved ClariS before, and was very sad when I heard one was leaving, but I had accepted it. Things just won't be the same now. No matter how similar the sound is, it just won't be quite the same to me. It's gonna bug me. Oh well, maybe i'll learn to love the new girl having hearing more songs.
I'd have preferred a name change. When bands change members, it's normally fine since band names mostly aren't based on the names of the members themselves...the ones I like anyway. This is like if Dave Matthews left Dave Matthews Band.
Was always confused as to whose voice was whose while it was still Clara and Alice lol looks like the deep voiced, mature sounding one(not sure how to exactly describe it lol but in their song Drop, the verse before the chorus, the 2nd voice that sings) was actually Clara.
Karen's voice sounds like one of those soft spoken, elegant ojou-samas in animes XD and the way she's represented by a star............a sun = star XD and a moon is accompanied by stars lol
