Six-year-old child actors Ashida Mana and Suzuki Fuku recently released a single titled "Maru-Maru-Mori-Mori" to promote their upcoming drama "Marumo no Okite", setting a new record for singles!

"Maru-Maru-Mori-Mori" has sold approximately 35,000 copies since it hit stores on May 25th, putting the adorable duo's single in third place for the week of June 6th. This makes Ashida and Suzuki - who released the single under the name "Kaoru to Tomomi, Tamani Mook" - the youngest to make it into the top ten in Oricon's Single Ranking in recent years. The last group to do so was Kigurumi, whose 2006 single "Tarako Tarako Tarako" charted in the top ten nearly five years ago. At the time, the members of Kigurumi were an average of 10.5 years old.

Furthermore, the last time a six-year-old Japanese singer was able to chart this high was when Minagawa Osamu released his single "Kuroneko no Tango" in 1969 - a stunning forty-one years ago.

The song has also been sweeping Recochoku's charts, claiming the top spot in six of their download rankings.

Congratulations to the young stars on their impressive achievement!
