Water Baby is episode 10a of Kuu Kuu Harajuku. It originally aired on November 5, 2016.
HJ5 are practicing for their gig at the Lo Lo Sea Mall when a group of Octacorns crack the dome ceiling.
PlotHJ5's van speeding down the streets of Harajuku. The girls and Rudie are sitting in the passenger seats fearing for their lives. Rudie introduces him as "R.O.D" which stands for Robotic Obedience Driver. The girls question why he got them a robot driver and Rudie says it's for those long drives to gigs that are out of town. R.O.D hands Rudie a nicely pressed suit and mentions he can clean clothes, skirts, shoes and even serve tea at precisely 4pm everyday.
As the van begins descending, Love is able to identify various schools of fish. R.O.D tells everyone that their van has been modified to turn into a fully submersible craft, thanks to Love. She instructs R.O.D to activate it by pressing the blue button. They find the Lo Lo Sea Mall at the bottom of the ocean. Rudie says the grand opening is tonight and got the girls a gig to play. While Angel and Baby cheer, the other girls give Rudie a nasty look and assures them "what could possibly go wrong?"
As they enter the mall, Music notices the balloons in the shape of their heads are gigantic. Rudie says it was either those or the giant blimp balloons and Music agrees the small ones are better. The mall is empty now, but in a few hours the place will be jam packed with people. The girls head off to do a soundcheck while Rudie sits back and talks to R.O.D. As the girls begin practicing, the sound of their music attracts a swarm of Octocorns which proceed to bang on the glass. Music asks if it's dangerous but Love assures them it will require a lot more of them to cause any sort of impact. Another group of octocorns join in and bounce against the glass.
The octocorns still want to follow Baby, who suggests they keep them, but Love tells her they won't survive on land. She says they could build a net and begins rambling when Angel suggests they build a canal and lure them in. Baby jumps in the ocean and rounds them up. As she takes video, the octocorns form into various shapes including a daisy, pony, and the shape of her face. The girls are able to see everything from the camera mounted on her head and G mentions she can't stay down there forever, but she doesn't want to leave. Rudie comes up with the idea to sell tickets to an underwater show featuring Baby and her trained octocorns, but R.O.D has a better idea.
- Baby: It's aqua-kawaii!
- Love: It would require a lot more octocorns to break it.
- Baby: [gasps] Look, a lot more octocorns!
- Translator: Love you, kawaii Baby!
- G: Forget about horsepower, we have octocorn power!
- Music: From now on, no more gigs underwater, or in space, or suspended from trees in the Amazon rainforest.
- Rudie: OK! OK! As if."
- The fish that Love notices is the Foxface Rabbitfish and Azure Damselfish
- This episode is similar to the Spongebob Squarepants episode "Spongehenge".
- The octocorns were attracted to Baby's cuteness, just like the jellyfish were attracted to Spongebob's whistling pores.
- No matter where the character went, the respective creatures would find them.
- A statue was created in order to detract attention away from the character the respective creatures were attracted to.
- Both episodes took place underwater.
