Love the kids

The kids’ singing and narration is great - clear and natural. I didn’t care for the adult singers, though. They sounded affected and tried too hard to sing to stereotypes. I also wish there were more actual Japanese children’s songs rather than translated English ones. Overall, a fun introduction to naturally spoken Japanese.

Disappointed

The music was nice but it’s hard for my 5 year old to learn anything when everything is so fast paced and only lasts like 5 minutes.
