Cutey Honey

Cutey Honey: The Live! is coming to Blu-ray disc in a world first from Discotek Media.

Cutey Honey: The Live! is a live-action adaptation of the original Cutey Honey (Also sometimes called Cutie Honey) manga and anime which premiered in 1973. The live-action series began in 2007 and stars gravure idol Hara Mikie in the lead role as Kisaragi Honey.

Cutey Honey follows the adventures of a Catholic schoolgirl who turns out to be an android and can transform into the heroine Cutie Honey. A summary from MyAnimeList can be found below.

One day, Honey Kisaragi’s a trendy, class-cutting Catholic schoolgirl. The next, her father’s been murdered by demonic divas from a dastardly organization called Panther Claw. When his dying message reveals that she’s an android, Honey uses the transformative power of the Atmospheric Element Solidifier – the very thing Panther Claw wanted to steal – to seek revenge against the shadowy clan. Can Honey fight her way up Panther Claw’s ranks to defeat its leader, the sinister Sister Jill while managing to escape the watchful eyes of Miss Histler, her school’s headmistress?

Aided by journalist Hayami Seiji, his ninja father, and his lady-loving grade school brother, Honey sometimes appears as a racecar driver, sometimes as a glamorous model, and sometimes as a beggar, but her true identity is none other than the warrior of love, Cutie Honey!
