ClariS' Birthday album sold 53,909 copies to rank #2 on Oricon's weekly CD album sales chart for the April 9-15 week. The young female duo released the CD as their first album on April 11.
The album also ranked #1 on the daily chart for April 13-16. The theme songs "irony" from Oreimo, "Connect" from Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and "Naisho no Hanashi" from Nisemonogatari are among the CD's 12 tracks.
"Naisho no Hanashi," the duo's fourth single, ranked #2 on Oricon's weekly CD single sales chart for the January 30-February 5 week — the first time that ClariS accomplished this feat. It was the fourth single in a row from ClariS to place in the top 10 of Oricon's weekly chart since the duo's debut, but this was their first song to place in the top 3.
