She learns from the recording that she is an android created by him. Within her body is the 'Fixed System of Air Elements', a device that can create anything out of air and allows her to transform into different girls, among them, Cutey Honey (sometimes spelled Cutie Honey) a warrior with supernatural powers. Evil organization Panther Claw is after this device and killed Professor Kisagari to get it. Now, their bosses, Sister Jill and Panther Zora are after Cutey Honey who swears she will get her revenge, and kill each and every one of the Panther Claw agent that the organization will send her.

Really pushing the envelope
18 February 2006 | by xenophile2002See all my reviews

For 1973, to have something this sexy was quite a deal. Not sure this would air unedited in America today. It turned out to be too much for the Japanese, where it was pulled after 25 eps. Still, it had a fanbase that refused to let it go, so Nagai later gave us Shin Cutey Honey, Cutey Honey Flash, the live-action Cutie Honey movie, and something called re: Cutie Honey. More recently still, there is Cutie Honey: The Live, a live-action television series.

And that isn't counting the manga, such as the latest Cutey Honey: Legend of an Angel.

She seems to have more powers and gadgetry in this, the original 1973 series, than in Shin Cutey Honey, but isn't as powerful as in the live-action movie. Still, her main power is that she can change into a chef, a ninja, a jet pilot, a rock star, etc.

While Christian imagery abounds in this series (stained glass, Madonna and child paintings and statues, crosses), I don't see the same level of allegory in this series as in the later Shin, in which Honey is obviously meant as a Christ-figure (she has no sin nature and spends a lot of time with two thieves).

All incarnations of Cutey Honey that I have seen to date are worth checking out.
