Recently one of my friends Hiko, who is from Tokyo Japan, recommended a Japanese group to me, it’s called Mr Children. yesterday I sent him a funny Japanese Christmas song called Jingle Bells – 7人の麦わら海賊団, which is from the popular cartoon One Piece（ワンピース） of Japan – I really love this cartoon, haha. And he said, oh, you know, Mr Children would make music for the movie if the author Eiichiro Oda 尾田 栄一郎 make a One Piece movie. Then that’s how I know Mr. Children.
He said Mr Children is the most popular group in Japan right now. here I will have you one of their songs called Hanabi. This one is just awesome!
