Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Well, it’s okay but...

The girls of HJ5 get too angry and harsh at their assistant manager, Rudie, and are unforgiving towards him when they don’t get a gig done. Honestly! Not everything’s his fault as they don’t get stuff right either! Plus, I think they take him for granted, blame him too much, torture him too much, and act rude towards them (not to mention laugh at him), which might pollute the minds of other young girls to make them act rude towards boys. Those girls really need to give Rudie more respect! Nobody wants to see or hear a band who’s mean to their manager!

More like Poo Poo Stupidjunku if you ask me....

Don't watch this show! Why? This show ruined the term "kawaii" which means Japanese cuteness. Yeah, I know Japanese culture well because I went to Japan every school holidays. This shouldn't be in Nick Jr. It should be in other channels, not Nick Jr! It's not perfect for weeaboos, Japan lovers, anime lovers and manga lovers. I myself is a weeaboo because I'm a crazy lover of anime, manga and Japan stuff. I used to like this since it debuted but I start to lose interest since May 2018 since it starts to get annoying. It is a huge rip-off of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, which is way better than this, that means it is a toddler version of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi! All the characters and animals are poorly drawn, the designs are no good at all, the animation is horrible, the theme song is annoying and the songs are annoying. I hope it gets cancelled after season 3!
