i☆Ris (pronounced Iris, as in English) is a Japanese voice acting and singing female idol group, formed in 2012 by Avex.
It consists of six members: Saki Yamakita, Yū Serizawa, Himika Akaneya, Yūki Wakai, Miyu Kubota, and Azuki Shibuya. The leader is Saki Yamakita. It is a so-called “hybrid group”, because in addition to performing as singing idols, they together work as anime voice actors. They provide the voices for main characters in the arcade game and anime franchise PriPara.
The group was formed as a result of the Anison Vocal Audition that was held in 2012 (of the six successful candidates). On November 7, 2012, the group debuted with its first single titled “Color” (on the label Avex). Their third single “§Rainbow” was released on August 21, 2013.
