My daughter is a fan of anything cute, girly and fashionable. Naturally, she gravitated towards Kuu Kuu Harajuku, an animated series by the incomparable Gwen Stefani, which airs on Nick Jr. We recently subscribed to Sling TV, so now she’s able to watch it (along with her other favorite TV shows) whenever it airs!
The second Kuu Kuu Harajuku DVD is set to release on September 26th! We were sent an advanced copy, and Bella loved watching all of the episodes and bonus features! Stay tuned towards the end for a fun giveaway!
From the mind of Gwen Stefani comes the world of KUU KUU HARAJUKU. The animated series comes to DVD in North America from Shout! Factory in collaboration with DHX Media. The second installment, KUU KUU HARAJUKU: SUPER KAWAII, contains 12 episodes from Season One, as well as new interviews with the show’s voice cast and will be available on DVD on September 26, 2017.
KUU KUU HARAJUKU: SUPER KAWAII is available now for pre-order at Amazon.com and ShoutFactory.com. Initial shipments of the DVD contain nail decals of fun KUU KUU HARAJUKU-inspired emoticons (while supplies last). The 2D-animated series currently airs on Nick Jr. in the U.S. and on Family Channel in Canada.
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!
Also, check out the “kawaii” soundtrack to the much-loved TV series, available for download now on itunes.com and Amazon.com, or stream it on Apple Music and Spotify. HJ5: KUU KUU HARAJUKU features the show theme and five new songs from the hit children’s television series including, “Dancing in the Sunlight”, “Change It Up” and possibly the cutest call to arms ever, “All For One”!
Also launching is a new KUU KUU HARAJUKU fashion doll and small doll line from Mattel that infuses popular Japanese harajuku fashion, and allows girls to customize and create their own fashions with interchangeable outfits and accessories. The line includes product based on singer G, plus Love, Angel, Music and Baby. Each best pal adds her unique personality to her fashion, band and fun.
KUU KUU HARAJUKU is co-created and produced by Moody Street Kids (Australia), Vision Animation (Malaysia) and Gwen Stefani and commissioned by Network Ten with investment funding from Film Victoria (Australia) and MyCreative Ventures (Malaysia). DHX Media handles international distribution for the series, and licensed the series to Shout! Factory.
