  1. This felt like watching animals at the zoo doing tricks, except in this case, it's kids we're talking about.

  2. Notice the joy on their faces. Clearly this is their lifelong dream without any external pressure whatsoever.

  12. 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.

  18. 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!
