Ashida's debut single, "Suteki na Nichiyoubi ~Gyu Gyu Good Day!~", placed 4th on the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart, and became the youngest artist to place in the top 10 with a debut single.

Other than "Maru Maru Mori Mori!" and "Suteki na Nichiyoubi ~Gyu Gyu Good Day!~", the album will include a song written by Takeuchi Mariya, titled "Minna no Happy Birthday", and a song provided by Kishitani Kaori, titled "Mana no Lovely Rock'n'Roll".

The album will come in two different versions: a limited edition and a regular edition. The limited edition will come with a DVD containing the video clip for "Minna no Happy Birthday". Meanwhile, both limited and regular editions will include a 20-page booklet filled with Ashida's pictures.
