Interest ClariS to Perform Oreimo's 2nd Season Opening

The official website for the second season of the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. (Oreimo) anime announced on Friday that "reunion," the new single that the duo ClariS will release on April 17, will be used as the opening theme for the anime. The two singers previously contributed their debut single, "irony," as the opening theme for the anime's first season. (The two were in middle school at the time, but are now in high school.)
For the second anime season, character designer Hiroyuki Oda is once again adapting Hiro Kanzaki's original novel illustrations, and series script editor Hideyuki Kurata is similarly adapting Tsukasa Fushimi's original light novel series. Hiroyuki Kanbe is returning to the proverbial director's chair — only this time at A-1 Pictures instead of AIC Build.
The studio change was made after consulting with AIC Build, the studio behind the first season, about production scheduling. Nevertheless, ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko imprint reported at the Aki no Saiten event last October that the second season will reassemble the first season's staff.
