One day, Honey Kisaragi's a trendy, class-cutting Catholic schoolgirl. The next, her father's been murdered by demonic divas from a dastardly organization called Panther Claw. When his dying message reveals that she's an android, Honey uses the transformative power of the Atmospheric Element Solidifier - the very thing Panther Claw wanted to steal - to seek revenge against the shadowy clan. Can Honey fight her way up Panther Claw's ranks to defeat its leader, the sinister Sister Jill while managing to escape the watchful eyes of Miss Histler, her school's headmistress?
Aided by journalist Hayami Seiji, his ninja father, and his lady-loving grade school brother, Honey sometimes appears as a racecar driver, sometimes as a glamorous model, and sometimes as a beggar, but her true identity is none other than the warrior of love, Cutie Honey!
This anime deserves a review. I am a fan of seeking out older anime and watching it. This anime, as far as I am aware, is one of the original Magical Girl series. Where a girl transforms into different clothes/armor/etc to defeat her enemies. It's a simple concept and this is a simple show. It's your basic Monster of the Week fair. Ultimately leading to Cutey Honey taking on the ring leader at the end. Each enemy Cutey faces is interesting, but most don't have too much development. The death scenes can be quite brutal with a fair amount of blood.
The problem with the show is it isn't finished. I'm sure the manga finished it, but not here. Cutey defeats a main enemy, but not the main ring leader. By the time the show reboots with Shin Cutey Honey you just have to assume that somewhere along the way the main ring leader was taken out. It puts a damper on an otherwise fairly entertaining show.
Watch 2 or 3 episodes at your leisure and enjoy the funky beats. Just don't watch too much or you'll get burnt out due to the repetitive nature. I found the show entertaining. I think you'll feel the same way.read more
