Let’s learn a little more about this fantastic show! According to the press release, “Kuu Kuu Harajuku follows Love, Angel, Music, Baby and their inspirational leader, G, as they form the super-talented band, HJ5. Thanks to their manager Rudie, angry aliens, NoFun politicians, hungry monster pets, and other obstacles, every gig is interrupted and the girls never get to complete a concert — but G and her friends never give up.
In the series premiere, “Totally Teen Genie,” Angel releases a Teen Genie with attitude and tries to use her three wishes to help HJ5 win a Totally Teen Awards Golden Hoodie trophy. Then in “Angel’s Flight,” Angel’s determined to restore her reputation after an unflattering picture appears online.”
After falling in love with the culture and magnificence of the Harajuku town in Tokyo, Japan, the stupendous Gwen Stefani had a lot of her musical masterpieces inspired by the Harajuku District. From music videos, performances, and beyond, now the exceptional Gwen Stefani is bringing her love for the Harajuku culture to an animated show.
