Kuu Kuu Harajuku

Watch Gwen Stefani rap and croon in a flashy clip introducing her upcoming animated Nickelodeon series Kuu Kuu Harajuku inspired by Harajuku, Japan.

Gwen Stefani previewed her upcoming animated Nickelodeon series Kuu Kuu Harajuku in a flashy new music video, which features a "roll call" of the characters in the fictional HJ5 band: Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G.

"Say hello to HJ5, a brand new band with their own style," Stefani raps in the clip, breaking down each band member's personality and quirks. Love is the "brain of the crew"; Angel has a "sunshine demeanor"; Music will "put up a fight"; Baby is "sweet as can be"; and Stefani-inspired leader G's "got your back."

Stefani first created the Harajuku Girls characters for a track of the same name on her debut solo LP, 2004's Love. Angel. Music. Baby. On the new animated series, the quintet will battle aliens, politicians and various obstacles, continuously interrupting their attempts to perform live.

Stefani said the series was inspired by the fashion and youth culture of Harajuku, Japan. The series will air on October 3.
