If you’ve never seen a baby sea squirt, you’re definitely missing out. The adorable undersea animals have taken Japanese Twitter by storm, and you only need to take one look to realize why.

They actually look like little swarming characters from the Studio Ghibli classic animation Ponyo, which could explain why the Japanese love them so much. But then again, who wouldn’t?
Note: you have to catch ’em young, because it looks like they grow up to be the sea-squirt equivalent of angsty teenagers.
