This felt like watching animals at the zoo doing tricks, except in this case, it's kids we're talking about.
Notice the joy on their faces. Clearly this is their lifelong dream without any external pressure whatsoever.
The short kid could barely see over the Marimbas...
...i don't know what to say, and I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing...
The 2nd Anon fully got the true sense of this.
This is totally awesome.You can see the pride and the motivation on their face!
this faces look like drug induced slavery now i get all that seppuku stuff japan is just one big volcano and there all just high on the fumes (history makes sense now like the crazy kamikaze stuff ect) XD
This song was in FLCL lol.
hehe im Japanese but i know English XD
I'm glad to see that these kids are well on the path to choosing a life for themselves!/sarcasm
Yes, the song was in FLCL, but it was only borrowed for that purpose. Polovstian dances (a russian opera) was used in KareKano as well, doesn't mean that it was written for that. This particular song was written by Dmitry Kabalevsky in 1939 for a children's play and has been borrowed for other uses since.I think these children did very well. I've played the song too and can agree that its not such an easy piece to learn and is a lot of fun to play.
the littlest kid looked like he wasn't even contributing to the song
I don't really feel any motivation to criticize Japan for this as long as I have yet to see a Japanese toddlers and tiaras aired.

Damn, they're good. Finest marimba playing I've heard in a long while.
Katie H for the win.
This seems to be part of Kasou, right? Which is kinda like a talent competition... Many children take part in this and it's all about creativity, art and talent. You shouldn't be criticizing it without knowing it in the first place.I see you're much better off on the internet than doing anything useful...Such talent little kids! Must have taken them a lot of practice! well done!
Why am I imagining Hanna-Barbera characters running at high speeds.
The number 24 overlay in the top corner, is that their combined age?
This is also from Kawaii Pet Megu!
These kids are insanely talented!
