I suggest that you view this on a PC rather than on a tablet or a phone for the best experience. 🙂
If there are going to be any complaints to ClariS, it’s going to be about how they release awesome songs back to back. Their quality is so damn consistent I struggled to pick my top songs from them. Originally I’d plan on doing a top ten but this is where I ended up; a top thirty list. I’ll be a little more creative with putting images of the album/EP covers below the song titles.
Alrighty, let’s get this countdown going!
Used as an opening to Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai. (season 2).
Pretty much suffers in terms of how much I liked the song less than the previous opening.
Used as the first ending theme for the anime Qualidea Code.
This is probably one of many ‘ClariS signature’ songs that involve soft instruments. I’m sure there are more to come, down the list…
27. Hitotsu Dake (Only One)
There, I said it.
26. Wake Up
Used as an opening theme to the anime Moyashimon Returns!.
Wake me up when the list stops being all the songs from ‘Second Story’.
Here’s a demo.
Don’t wake me up yet…
24. rainy day
No seriously. Listen to this on a rainy day and you’ll feel better. Guaranteed.
23. Neo Moon
Okay we’ve made it out of Second Story just for a while. This song does have somewhat dark feeling to it, but isn’t that what we need once in a while?
Used as an opening to the anime Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magika (Puella Magi Madoka Magica).
I’m sure Madoka fans would totally expect this to be somewhere much higher in the ranks. For me though, putting it here seems mostly fitting.
Used as an opening theme to the movie Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magika.
Would you look at that? A more deserving song from Madoka!
The video has a pitched version of the song.
20. Usotsuki (Liar)
It’s only the beginning and unlike this song, I am not lying. From here on you’ll meet more songs from their most recent album; Fairy Castle.
19. next to you
Because you need more relaxing music.. These girls have it.
Oh and the video has absolutely nothing to do with the song. Listen to it with your eyes closed (assuming that you’ve read this).
I actually don’t have any comments on this song except that it’s a nice song to listen to once in a (very long) while…
I recall when this song didn’t even make my top 30 a week ago.
16. with you
So Second Story still has some greats left over to take the higher spots in my heart.
Used as an opening to Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai.
Here it is! The proud, original ClariS! The song that got them the starer fame! Need I say more about this song?
14. Hirahira Hirara
Now this is something ‘Japan’ like. I dig.
Here’s a random painting video with the music in it.
Used as the theme song for the role-playing game AKIBA’S BEAT.
This feels like a quick trip to hell.
12. Kono ‘I’ wa Kyosuu (This ‘I’ is Imaginary)
Right. This should be where the ClariS collection started getting tense as they’ve explored new dimensions of pop. You could tell right away that the melody and overall tone of this song isn’t a positive one like pop is known to be. If you’re a pianist there’s a good chance that you’ll absolutely love this song!
Link to the song is here. However, the page is in Afrikaans!
Who cares, just listen to it haha!
Used as the first opening theme for the anime Nisekoi.
This is the one case where… you’re probably not a ClariS fan if you haven’t heard this song.
Used as a promotion song to the 40th anniversary of Sanrio mascots Kiki & Lala.
This song gave me mixed feelings between happiness and uncertainty, definitely not sadness.
Used as the third ending theme for the anime Qualidea Code.
Used as the opening theme for the anime Eromanga-Sensei.
Oh boy! OreImo returns and so does ClariS! One for one! This song pretty much sums up the mood I was in when I watch the show.
This song sounds so posh and fancy at the same time.
Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming!
Same Afrikaans page to the song.
Used as an ending theme for the anime Tsukimonogatari.
ClariS now officially does rock! Woot!
No, honestly. I’m actually happy that they finally started doing something new to themselves.
Absolutely heaven. I cried a little while listening to this while working….
While. Freaking. At. Work. And people asked me what the hell was wrong, haha!
I remembered hearing this song even before Anemone, back when I used to follow International Saimoe League. Right back to it!
1. Kokoro no Inryoku (Heart’s Attraction)
This. This is it! The song is pretty much sprinkled in both anime and Disney flavors, something befitting the duo (Clara who was an anime geek & Alice who was a Disney otaku at the time).
And when I say Disney, I’ll remind you of what it resembles…
I want you to alternate the playbacks between the last minute of Kokoro no Inryoku and this song 🙂
Honorable Mention: STEP
Used as the second opening theme to the anime Nisekoi.
Pretty much suffers the same fate as the song reunion.
It’s been a hell of a ride. I hope you enjoyed listening to any of these songs I managed to find. For the ones I couldn’t, I’d suggest buying CD’s or EP’s since I’ve said this before; the pictures below each song title is the cover for the Albums/EP’s.
