Former anime director Hideaki Anno adapts Go Nagai's manga and anime character of Cutie Honey to live-action cinema in this high-energy Japanese adventure comedy. Honey Kisaargi (Eriko Sato), an android created by her scientist father, is attempting to balance her dull office job and her secret life as the constantly costume-changing, pink-clad superhero warrior of love, Cutie Honey. When the dreaded Panther Claw gang returns to create evil and steal our hero's Love System necklace, it can only be Cutie Honey to the rescue! As Honey races to save the world, she teams up with a hard-as-nails detective (Mikako Ichikawa) and a super-cool reporter (Jun Murakami) and faces off against an evil tree demon known as Sister Jill (Eisuke Sakai). Cutie Honey incorporates anime-style hand-drawn effects into the film's many special effects sequences and features a pop music score by Mikio Endo and Kumi Koda.
