Disclosure: I was sent a copy of Kuu Kuu Harajuku: Super Kawaii for review purposes. No other compensation was received.
Even if you haven’t heard of Kuu Kuu Harajuku, you can’t help but have heard of the show’s creator, Gwen Stefani. That’s right – the woman with the incredible voice, creative songwriting talent, and unique fashion sense also inspired a children’s animated television series. Seriously. Anything you can’t do, Gwen?
The animated series KUU KUU HARAJUKU follows the fun-filled adventures of the band HJ5 – Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G – through their super cute world of music, fashion and style. The inspiration for this popular animated series came from Grammy® Award-winning musician Stefani who wanted to create an animated series for girls that encourages and celebrates creative self-expression, imagination and individuality. The show’s setting is inspired by the exuberant street fashion and creative youth culture of the Harajuku district but it takes place in a magical fantasy world like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
Join Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G — five totally talented members of the super cool band HJ5 — as they return with 12 more hard-rocking tales! With help from their loveably incompetent manager Rudie, HJ5 travels all over the globe to put on shows for their fans! That is, of course, if they can actually get through the crazy adventures keeping them from their gigs! But together, HJ5 will do what it takes to perform … and maybe even save the day!
So, what is a Harajuku? It’s a highly fashionable area of Japan where youth culture flourishes. There are a ton of luxury stores and extreme fashion shops. All those adult women wearing cat ears and retro dresses printed with cupcakes? They all have a home in Harajuku.
This is the second DVD to be released. It will be available wherever DVDs are sold, beginning September 26, 2017. For now, you can pre-order it from Amazon or ShoutFactory.com.
