Eromanga Sensei anime gets opening song from ClariS


This sounds familiar...

ClariS, a duo formed by two junior high students Clara and Alice back in 2009 on NicoNico, has performed manysongs for anime including the likes of Oreimo and Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Now, the duo (with a new member Karen replacing Alice) will provide the opening song for the upcoming anime adaptation of the "sibling romantic comedy" Eromanga Sensei, a title about high schooler Masamune Izumi is also a light novel author and his shut-in sister Sagiri. Unbeknownst to him, she is also his illustrator who makes erotic drawings for his books. 

This also marks a return for ClariS to their roots, since their first song to be used for an anime opening song was the anime adaptation of Oreimo, which is also from Tsukasa Fushimi and the author of the light novel Eromanga Sensei. The illustrator for Eromanga Sensei and Oreimo, Hiro Kanzaki, also provided official character illustrations for ClariS in the past.

The opening theme song, "Hitorigoto" ("Soliloquy") will be released on April 23, 2017 as a single. It was recently announced at the recent ClariS concert "ClariS 1st Nippon Budokan Concert ~ The Two Masks and the Departed Son ~" last February 10, 2017. The anime Eromanga Sensei will air in April 2017 for the spring anime season.

So what do y'all think? I know ClariS will do a good job but how will this anime shape out? We've seen how Oreimo ended. Hopefully no more bayonetting laptop screens. Or maybe I want to see more.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
