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.

In the time before time, there was an anime called cutie honey... I'm kidding.

This is probably the oldest anime I ever saw. It aired in 1973 (nineteen seventy three). As a result it is pretty much unlike anything I've ever seen, and the closest thing to it, at least visually, is the first season of Sailor Moon. The anime is also based on works on Go Nagai, who is responsible for Devilman, Devilman Lady, Getter Robo, Mazinger, and many other things.

The age of the anime is noticeable in every its aspect - story, characters, visuals, art style and music. It aired before anime became read more

Cutey Honey is a show produced by Toei Animation and is directed by Tomoharu Katsumata (Devilman). Cutey Honey is based on the manga of the same name by Go Nagai. It is regarded as one of the very first magical girls.

The story in Cutey Honey is quite simple. Kisaragi Honey is just your average catholic schoolgirl (not). One day she returns home to find that her father has been killed. An evil organisation called Panther Claw is responsible for his death. His dying message reveals that Honey is actually an Android that can use transformative powers thanks to the Atmospheric Element Solidifier that is located read more

So what's this show about? Put simply, It features Honey Kisaragi defeating her foes from episode to episode. Join her and her trusty love-struck "side-kicks" Seiji and Danbei in defeating the Panther Claw's minions. That's about it!

Cutey Honey is a show that has a very strange appeal for me that I haven't seen in another anime. The premise of the show is very simple and it's an extremely episodic and repetitive watch, yet it kept me coming back. The most odd thing about this show is that it isn't exactly good from a reviewing standpoint, but I found it pretty enjoyable on a 1-2ep read more
