    they cheated at the end. a small boy in a diaper is not permissible in marble rolling. i don’t care how japanese he is, he should be making smooth balls out of mud.

    There is a Japanese children’s show called “Pythagoras Switch” (or “Pitagora Suiichi”) which is what these children are emulating.

    A number of clips from this show may be found on YouTube:

    Be sure to check out the ninja algorithm march.

    Pythagoras switch translations can be downloaded from here. There’s alot of cute stuff, and not just marble rolling.
