Japanese voice actor and idol unit i☆Ris release their 21st single, ‘Junigatsu no Snowry’ / ‘Heart Beat Kyujosyo’ on December 8. Overflowing with the power of love, lead track ‘Heart Beat Kyujosyo’ also has a music video out now on YouTube!

In the music video, the five members of i☆Ris wear adorable red and white dresses and express their innocent feelings of love as they dance in a fairytale world adorned with giant stuffed animals, heart-shaped balloons and mountains of wrapped presents.

Near the beginning of the video, the girls dance with the pointer fingers of both hands on their heads as though they are firing laser beams, known as the “love beam dance”, grabbing the viewer's heart with the most adorable dance imaginable. True to the track's title, hearts feature prominently in the video, with the members making heart shapes with their hands and on their cheeks. In fact, you can spot eight different types of heart poses in the video, including one that is made up by three members together! During the chorus, in particular, the heart poses are timed to the beat of the song.

The simple “heartbeat dance” choreography allows you to dance along with just your upper body, making it perfect for TikTok videos. It's a dance filled with heart that makes you want to join in, and there's no doubt that i☆Ris will start a “heart whirlwind” this winter!

The end and the beginning of love – check out i☆Ris as they express both of these feelings in the new video for ‘Heart Beat Kyujosyo’.

Profile

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.
