"THE [email protected] CINDERELLA GIRLS LITTLE STARS! Étude wa Ikkyoku Dake" single sold an estimated 37,000 copies and ranked #1 in Oricon's weekly singles chart for the May 22-28 week. It is the franchise's second single in a row to top the ranking, after last June's "THE [email protected] CINDERELLA GIRLS STARLIGHT MASTER 03 Hi-Fi Days" single. The new single shipped in Japan on May 24.
The single is also the fourth single by voice cast members under their characters' names to rank #1 on the weekly chart, after "GO! GO! MANIAC" single from K-ON!'s Hōkago Tea Time group in April 2010, the above-mentioned "THE [email protected] CINDERELLA GIRLS STARLIGHT MASTER 03 Hi-Fi Days," and Utano☆Princesama Legend Star's "QUARTET NIGHT" single in December.
The new single's title track "Étude wa Ikkyoku Dake" debuted in The [email protected] Cinderella Girls Gekijō anime as its second ending theme song. Ayaka Fukuhara, Mina Nagashima, Eriko Matsui, Maaya Uchida, and Sayaka Harada performed the song as their respective characters. The single also includes versions of the song performed solo by each singer, as well as the bonus track "lilac time" by Juri Kimura as her character.
