Chibi Maruko Chan
In case any of you are still under the assumption that Japanese children are ALL so well behaved....meet Maruko chan. Actually, I'm thankful that I don't know ANY children like this here :) . I only looked this up because when I gave a Hershey's kiss to one of the kids today, she said "Nagasawakun"! (???) It turns out this is the name of one of Maruko chan's classmates, who has a head shaped like a Hershey's kiss. I don't think that Nagasawakun is in this clip, but I put this up because the English dubbing of the first part - about preparing for earthquakes - is pretty funny (but seriously - don't feel at all obliged to watch the entire clip!).
