Not to be dissuaded, I tracked down the Japanese DS version of the game and have been addicted ever since. While trying to beat a ridiculously difficult song in hard mode, I went to You Tube and stumbled upon these gems. They were made for a Japanese children's show, but thanks to YouTube you can watch all the episodes and perform a ballet of spastic joy if you are so inclined.
