Tis the season to be jolly with Japanese voice actresses and idol unit i☆Ris. Their next singles, ‘Junigatsu no Snowry’ and ‘Heart Beat Kyujosyo’ are now available to watch and it’s overflowing with sweetness. They celebrate love and life. The five girl band are ready to spread cheer everywhere they go. In the music video, they are in a fairytale world where giant stuffed animals and mountains of wrapped presents are everywhere.
They are both terrific tunes to get into the holiday spirit.
Another single, ‘Heart Beat Kyujosyo’ is also available! The group is encouraging their fans to dance along, and take a screenshot of your favorite heart-related moment in the video, and post them to Twitter along with a heartfelt message for i☆Ris and the hashtag #i_Ris_Heartshare. While this campaign runs from December 1st to 8th, perhaps newcomers can keep the passion ongoing for the rest of the month.
Formed in 2012, the five members of i☆Ris portrayed the lead characters in the videogame ‘PriPara’ as voice actors, and additionally they have each taken on a variety of challenges such as acting in movies and stage plays and performing as solo artists. On Sunday, November 7, they held a hugely successful concert at Japan’s Makuhari Messe venue, to celebrate nine years since their debut. The “i☆Ris whirlwind” showed no sign of stopping there, and the advance release of ‘Heart Beat Kyujosyo’ from their latest single took the No.1 spot on LINE MUSIC’s Top 50 anime song chart. With their momentum pushing them ever forward, in January 2022 i☆Ris will enter their tenth year, an unprecedented feat for a voice actor/idol group.
