Ashida Mana to make singing debut with “Marumo no Okite” theme song


Child star Ashida Mana (6) will make her singing debut this spring, providing the theme song for her upcoming drama series “Marumo no Okite.” She and co-actor Suzuki Fuku (6) are forming a temporary unit called “Kaoru to Yuki, Tama ni Mook” to sing the song, titled “Maru Maru Mori Mori!

“Marumo no Okite,” which was announced in February, is a family drama with a touch of fantasy about a man (played by Abe Sadao) who becomes the guardian of his friend’s twin children Kaoru and Yuki (played by Ashida and Suzuki). The two kids find a dog named Mook, and it turns out that he can speak like a human.

As the name of their unit suggests, Ashida and Suzuki are singing the theme song as their characters, along with the dog Mook. They already recorded the song at a Tokyo studio at the end of March. The two had to learn a dance created by Hamada “Peco” Miwako, who also choreographed the “Gake no Ue no Ponyo” song.

“Maru Maru Mori Mori!” will be released on May 25.
