New Cutie Honey (1994) Review

Huzzah, for once, Blip worked the FIRST time!

Cutie Honey month continues! Twenty years after the original series ended, it was brought to home video in the OVA New Cutie Honey. In the continuation of the original Cutie Honey series, Honey Kisuragi must fight bikers and monsters in a post apocalyptic future. Sounds like every single OVA ever made ever. So this is a step in the wrong direction... right?

Featuring special guest stars Burkion's cat and Bobcat's cold.

Announcing Cutie Honey Month!

Yes, because nobody demanded it: Cutie Honey Month!  Every weekend this March, we'll look at a different incarnation of the long running anime and live action magical girl franchise Cutie Honey!

Why Cutie Honey?  First answer, why not?  Second answer is, it's been a while since we did a theme month, and it seemed like an interesting way to get a cross section of how Anime has evolved over the decades.

Also, just for fun, here's an AMV with more than a few curse words.  You've been warned.  Thanks to crocodude over at YouTube.  You should check out his AMVs!
