Gwen Stefani is producing a cartoon about Japanese street culture and we're *so* on board with it
Back in 2004, Gwen Stefani served us some major badass inspiration with the release of her first solo album Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and more than 10 years later, that same collection of songs has inspired Stefani in the most fitting way. According to Entertainment Weekly, Stefani produced an animated kid series for Nickelodeon and we couldn’t be more excited to add a cartoon to our binge-watching lineup.
Titled Kuu Kuu Harajuku, the 26 episode series follows the adventures of a Harajuku-inspired girl group HG5 whose members Love, Angel, Music, Baby (YAS, YAS, and more YAS) and their leader G fight against shady aliens, politicians, and “hungry monster pets,” who would love nothing more than to derail their concerts.
Seeing as how Stefani is exactly how we imagine a rock star cartoon character would be IRL, this is actually the perfect gig for her. Oh, and there’s already a trailer that confirms how absolutely awesomesauce this cartoon will be:
“It’s been incredible to see the Harajuku Girls and the world they live in come to life,” Stefani said in a press release. “The artwork is so beautiful and the whole series turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I love that this is an animated series for young girls that celebrates creativity, imagination and individuality.”
We totally agree and can’t wait to watch!
