Based on a 1970s manga written and illustrated by Go Nagai, the 2004 adult-oriented fantasy comedy ‘Re: Cutie Honey’ is getting a Blu-Ray home video release from Discotek Media. Directed by Hideaki Anno, the Japanese animation studios Toei and Gainax released the OVA in three parts when it first debuted.
The box set will include all three episodes as well as both the original Japanese audio and the English dubbed version. It has a planned release date of August 29, 2023, but it is currently available on the Right Stuf Anime website.
Discotek released a first-look image of the Blu-Ray box set:
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“The last words spoken to Honey Kisaragi by her father before his death at the hands of the mysterious organization Panther Claw have shaped her way of life. It is the sole reason she still continues to fight for the sake of others.
The energetic Inspector Natsuko Aki does her absolute best to apprehend the members of Panther Claw and bring them to justice, but they are simply too much for the police to handle. The only one who can give these criminals a run for their money is the sexy warrior of love and justice, Cutie Honey—the secret alter ego of Kisaragi. Although Natsuko refuses to acknowledge vigilantes, her relationship with Honey progresses for the better as the strong-headed detective realizes the true intentions behind Honey’s actions.
Overtime, Honey grows more fearful of her burning desire for revenge; meanwhile, Natsuko wants to protect her friend, a sentiment that clashes with her ideals of upholding the law. If they ever hope to stand a chance against the menacing Panther Claw, the duo will have to put aside their differences and stand together.”
The OVA is based on the 2004 live-action film ‘Cutie Honey’ by director Hideaki Anno who also co-wrote the screenplay.
