Synopsis

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!

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.

Cutie Honey was such a disappointment.

I was watching the 1973 anime and quite enjoying, so I decided to take a look at the manga.
While I've appreciated Go Nagai's other works, especially during my childhood, this one reveals itself to be disrespectful and disturbing.


Honey's mission is your typical avenge tale, but it could have developed some interesting implications. However, it takes a step back to leave space to Nagai's need to make some of the most idiotic jokes I've heard since I was in middle school.
The manga seems to want not to take itself seriously, but it ends up showing a lack of respect towards its ...
