Synopsis

A mysterious organization known as Panther Claw make their presence known by terrorizing Tokyo and giving the cops a run for their money. Police are further baffled by the appearance of a lone cosplaying vigilante who thwarts all of Panther Claw's evil schemes before disappearing. That cosplayer is Honey Kisaragi, the result of the late Professor Kisaragi's prize experiment. A master of disguise, Honey can magically alter her physical appearance and outfits. But with a push of the heart-shaped button on her choker, she transforms herself into Cutie Honey, the scantily-clad, sword-wielding warrior of love and justice.

As a heterosexual female, I have no interest in fanservice geared towards males; they can enjoy it as much as they want but I’d certainly prefer not to see bouncing breasts at every turn when I watch anime. I find it even more irritating when fanboys insist that the latest fanservice-laden series is really deep and meaningful when you look past the D-cups. So when I downloaded a little OVA known as Re: Cutie (or Cutey) Honey, I wondered what I was thinking. Sure, the original 1973 anime series more or less created the modern-day magical girl, but this OVA is a much more recent read more

Overall
A short and very cliché OAV. Still cute and filled with nude shots. Not the worst I have seen, but nothing too memorable either.

Animation
The animation is well done, with a rather unique "western comic book" style. Action sequences and special effects look very good, and naked chicks are never wrong either.

Sound
The intro song fits well with the "western" theme (it doesn't sound as japanese as most of the intro songs out there) and was very (edit: VERY) likable by my standards.

Background music and sound effects are also nice and fitting. Voice acting is ok, nothing outstanding and nothing horrible.

Story
Bad story. The plot is obviously read more

Recommendations

Anime: Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
Both made by Gainax. Similar animation style. Great soundtrack. Lots of ecchi. Female heroine.

Anime: Kill la Kill
So, there's this large-chested girl whose father got mysteriously killed by some mysterious people, which sets her off on a roaring rampage of revenge. Cleavage and retro, seizurey fight scenes ensue. If you like ridiculous, over-the-top, fanservicey (and fandisservicey) shenanigans, then this is what you've been waiting for your whole life.

Anime: Dead Leaves
The director of Dead Leaves (Hiroyuki Imaishi) directed the first episode of Re: Cutey Honey and it shows, even in the two episodes made without his involvement. The action in both shows is fast paced, humourous, very colourful and involves lots of exaggerated movement. Both shows also have a lot of sexual humour, though Cutey Honey is more cheesy and fanservice-oriented whereas Dead Leaves tries to be crude and disgusting.

Anime: Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna
Trippy visuals, boobs, witty dialogue, boobs, boobs, fast paced action sequences, and boobs. Both are impromptu 70's revivals, as evidenced by the overall retro vibe.

Anime: Needless
Both of these anime are fast-paced feature a lot of cheesy, over-the-top action and parody situations often found in shounen anime. These anime also have a similar cartoony art style. Also, both female leads (Honey in Re: Cutie Honey and Eve in Needless) have some sort of transformation ability.

Re: Cutie Honey has more ecchi in it, to the point of full nudity.

Anime: Samurai Flamenco
In both a police officer finds out the identity of a vigilante superhero, and the two become more than friends and fight against villains together.
