Innocent 16-year-old Honey Kisaragi has just transferred to a Catholic school for girls, where she is enamored by everyone around her—including the teachers and her new best friend, Natsuko Aki. Later that night, Honey hears her father, the famous scientist Dr. Kisaragi, calling for help, and on her way over, she discovers that she can magically transform her clothes into various costumes.

But at home, Honey finds her father dying in the arms of a reporter named Seiji Hayami, who had been interviewing him earlier. From her father's robot, Honey learns that she is, in fact, not human; she is a special android called "Cutie Honey," built with an innovative piece of technology which allows her to shapeshift into seven different forms.

As the technology inside Honey can convert airborne particles into any and all types of matter, Dr. Kisaragi has been targeted by the organization called Panther Claw—a group of underground female cyborgs who greedily wish to use this technology for their own agenda. Now, Honey must protect her secret identity and avenge her late father by confronting any obstacle that Panther Claw sends her way!

Turn to the '73 anime if you can find it - The '73 manga has stuff to offer - jokes that land, an iconic drawing style, incredible character expressions and designs, sexy curves, some cool vehicles, vicious action, and a mostly break-neck storytelling pace.

The main character naturally gets the most love - the humor, the eye candy, the visual appeal, the plot and humanity (barely) all stem from and center ...

I'm a fan of Go Nagai but this is one manga that every fan MUST AVOID. The anime is where the good stuff's at.

As much as I like Honey as a character, this is a surprisingly bad debut for the series. Essentially, Honey is an android created to defeat the Panther Claw organization & most of the series plays in a monster of the week formula, however this is sex exploitation at it's worst.

This manga is best summed up as a bad porno as it features an all girls campus where teachers whip their students & occasionally violate them for no purpose whatsoever. A lot ...

If there's one thing a manga should not feel like, it is a chore. And, unfortunately, this is one of those pieces that will, something you're drawn in by solely by the cover art, and live to regret. According to Wikipedia, this is one of the very first Magical Girls manga. And let's just say there's a reason we talk about Sailor Moon, not Cutey Honey.

So, onwards with the review.

Story - 3

We're introduced to our main character, Honey, in the wake of her creation by her "papa", a scientist whose dreams have, apparently, "come true!". It's also the moment where you, as the reader, ...
