The last words spoken to Honey Kisaragi by her father before his death at the hands of the mysterious organization Panther Claw have shaped her way of life. It is the sole reason she still continues to fight for the sake of others.

The energetic Inspector Natsuko Aki does her absolute best to apprehend the members of Panther Claw and bring them to justice, but they are simply too much for the police to handle. The only one who can give these criminals a run for their money is the sexy warrior of love and justice, Cutie Honey—the secret alter ego of Kisaragi. Although Natsuko refuses to acknowledge vigilantes, her relationship with Honey progresses for the better as the strong-headed detective realizes the true intentions behind Honey's actions.

Overtime, Honey grows more fearful of her burning desire for revenge; meanwhile, Natsuko wants to protect her friend, a sentiment that clashes with her ideals of upholding the law. If they ever hope to stand a chance against the menacing Panther Claw, the duo will have to put aside their differences and stand together.

Re: Cutie Honey features several references to other popular media, including Kill Bill, Lupin III, and Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon.

The series was released on DVD in Japan as a collection on September 21, 2005, including a CD drama starring the four voice actresses of Honey Kisaragi up to that point.

The first episode was directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi. If you recognize his animation and directing style from FLCL's fifth episode, Gurren Lagann, Dead Leaves, Panty & Stocking and Kill la Kill, you already know what you're in for. His characters don't animate the _most_, but they animate in creative, exaggerated and really funny ways. Combined with the peppy soundtrack, the abstract backgrounds and the comedic tone, they make up a 1-hour romp of Cutie Honey beating up on villains while losing all her clothes.

The remaining two episodes aren't nearly as good. The second one is animated like a regular cheap TV show, while the ...

A fun sexy adventure of Cutie Honey with more insanity, more tight story, and a open ended ending as far as the relationship between Honey and the female detective. Sexy over the top action that is similar to Kill La Kill and Panty and Stocking and influence those shows. Is an anime made by Gainax and it shows.
Story: The story is mainly Honey fighting the Black Panther with the female detective trying to capture Honey as they form a "friendy" relationship. The shoujo AI is in the tag and is open ended enough to satisfy people who want some yuri. While ...

Mixed Feelings
This is my guilty pleasure show. I'm vehemently against fanservice in anime, so I usually avoid shows like Re: Cutey Honey, but after seeing that Hideaki Anno directed this and that it had quite positive reviews from some women, I decided to watch it, and I'm glad I did.

Re: Cutey Honey puts a really unique take on magical girls. It involves the perspective of the military and law enforcement as opposed to solely the perspective of the magical girl. This gives Re: Cutey Honey a doomsday feeling, which is a necessary anchor for the show that prevents the from devolving into random nudity and ...
