The first episode is now up on HIDIVE: https://www.hidive.com/stream/cutie-honey-universe/s01e001

Episode 1

It's weird for a Cutie Honey show to open with a different theme song. So it begins with Honey on the job to take down Panther Claw's minions at a jewelry store. Something seemed amiiss when the hostages are killed but they didn't steal anything inside the store as what they are really after is a device that Honey has, and the one who called Honey out is the leader of Panther Claw, Jill. Honey lives to fight another day, but in the meantime the gauntlet has been thrown. Go Nagai's style is ever so present here as it's full of mature stuff and weirdness. Not the best of starts, but it's something I have great interest in as the guilty pleasure of the season.

Honey's transformation is fire!



When I initially saw the poster, I thought it would be a group of magical girls. Seems like it's Honey with multiple transformations. In terms of the art style and frenetic energy, it reminded a bit of Lupin the III. Honey's Red transformation, with the sword and color palette, also reminded of Hikaru from Rayearth. Not sure what the endgame will be, but this seems like a fun ride.

The campy, over-the-top nature of this show got me hooked from the word go! The first second of the actual show being two girls kissing certainly helped. I love the varied designs and the fact that Honey seems to be a one-man army is a pretty cool concept for a magical girl series. I hope we get to see many beautiful transformation sequences in the future!

I liked how as her costume takes damage she slowly reverts back into her Honey Kisaragi form. It's a pretty cool visual

personally I prefer Re:Cutie Honey's version of Nat-chan, where she was a tough as nails gun slinging cop but I guess we are going back to the original with this series

Indeed, its odd changing the official theme song for such a notorious franchise.

Welcome to Go Nagai's world, he is a very daring and controversial Mangaka, he was at one time considered Japan's PTA most hated enemy, he is considered to be the creator of modern erotica manga.

Yes! ohhhh Yes! That was so good. Felt like it didn't skip a beat.

admittedly I never saw the original CH from the 70's but I loved Shin and Re: years later.

Man this just feels like being a teenager all over again. Just plain dumb action ecchi fun. I really hope this continues through the rest of the season. But ep. 1 gets two emphatic thumbs up from me! and DAM the OP is fantastic!

HONEY FLASH!!!

Episode 2

Honey's origins are explained here as she was born in a lab as a creation of Dr. Kisaragi's. She was sent to a remote school, and then Panther Claw attacked the lab when Dr. Kisaragi was killed protecting Honey. With the message he recorded before his death, it explains the device that Panther Claw is after that allows her to change forms. And now, Seiji comes under attack as Jill turned a girl who had lost her lover into a Panther Claw beast, and Honey does her job again, all while Junpei was watching and has fallen for Jill's alter ego. That's a better episode than the first as it told some really intuitive backstory there about Honey's origins and that device that Panther Claw is trying to hard to get their hands on.

Does anyone else kind of find it Ironic that Atsuko Tanaka plays Sister Jill, and Maaya Sakamoto plays Honey Kisaragi?

I'm sure betting they're working out their Major issues doing this show lol

Episode 3

Natsuko is going on a date with Genet, but little did she know that she's actually walking into a trap. So while trying on a new outfit, Jill sends a chimera to freeze everybody and turn them into mannequins. Naoko is none to pleased about what is developing, but even more so with what is happening inside the store. So it's Honey to the rescue again, and just when it looked like the chimera had Honey trapped, she didn't realize just how strong she is. Genet sure is covering her tracks well, all while Naoko is just a scatterbrain when it comes to romance. Now that Genet and Naoko have gotten close that now she's somebody that will come under attack.
