Clara from ClariS tells the groups will not be Dissolved
Clara from the duo ClariS "appeared" in an exclusive phone interview with Gero-san, the host of Fuji TV's early morning talk show, Mazamashi TV where she talked about many things, including their newly-released third album titled Party Time as well as the fact that her partner Alice has announced her graduation to further pursue her studies. She told the host that even if Alice will be graduating, ClariS will not be dissolved, an announcement which surely made many fans watching the show breathe a sigh of relief.
Of course the best part of the interview, is that as you may know, the duo never made a public appearance (in their concerts they were hiding behind a veil, only leaving the silhouettes visible), so they used a 3D-printed avatar of Clara, and man do they sell that? Because I need one! Via: SGCafe
